    I see the usual sycophantic twats are giving it "All those saying they don't care sure seem to care!" Well, I don't care that he's dead. I don't care that people are sad about it. What I do care about is that, for me and everyone else I know that's ever lost a parent or partner, the first few days are taken up with sitting in a GP's waiting room for a death certificate, taking it to the register office, going to the funeral directors, checking insurances and bank accounts to make sure you can pay for what's coming next, booking and paying for a reception, contacting dozens of people to let them know and doing a hundred other chores. If you're poor it means doing these things without a car and at a cost to yourself that you can ill afford. You'll probably need to squeeze it in among work and other responsibilities, like looking after your children. It often involves cancelling benefits (they will absolutely come for you if you don't), clearing out a room in a care home or sheltered housing and making arrangements for other elderly relatives to get cared for. These privileged, pampered, self-indulgent b*****ds will get all of this provided for them, and more, entirely at the expense of everyone else in the UK, including people who rely on food banks to feed their families. They have a standing army of flunkies who will take care of every last detail so that they can sit around with the grief - a luxury that none of the rest of us get to experience. Did you know that you pay for someone to follow Prince Charles around wherever her goes carrying a red velvet cushion, which he uses whenever he sits down? I have no sympathy and no respect for any of them or their servile subjects. So what I'm here for is the memes and the jokes, because if we can't beat these bootlicking p***ks we might as well laugh at them.

    England to win the Euros for him. Hopefully with bespoke strips. I hope there's a minutes silence at Wembley before our game with them and the Scotland fans loudly booo, whistle, jeer and break out in to an amusing song about what a c**t he was, to the extent that the England fans are absolutely furious (so much so that the stewards and police have to hold them back), the commentators are apoplectic and the media goes totally mental over it.

    Its a dangerous one, what is more important to them, standing up to one kind of hate crime or being staunch and remembering someone who had expressed views similar to those which caused them to have the silence in the first place.

    BBC briefly mentioning the queen fell in love with the Prince when she was only 13 years old. Philip was 18 at the time. So in Andrew’s case, like father like son.

    Going to be honest here. I am starting to struggle with all this shit. Honestly, speaking to people who are peddling the need for passports, spouting off about variants and wanting to be kept safe, reading these utterly pointless, serves no good purpose articles and headlines, I'm struggling to keep a lid on my anger with it all. Its still at the point where criticism of the response is met with "covid denier" chat, but the clear reality of it is we are so fucking far from "protect the NHS" its unrecognisable. I don't know what we are doing here anymore, but I am starting to worry that normal life isn't coming back.

    It seems pretty clear that M&M have been 100% reliant on having better players than anyone else, and those “better players” would be enough to win the league.....they would be enough to compensate for the lack of focus, lack of team ethic, lack of organisation and lack of tactical know how. I suppose it could be argued that it has worked. Thing is, the key bit is “it has worked” is very different from “it is working”. Back to the earlier defeat to Airdrie, I said at the time that it didn’t feel like “bad day at the office, and we move on”. Being so close to the players (one of the boys), I don’t think either of them command player respect. FFC is a place where no-one is really accountable for anything.....it’s the game’s rule makers that have shafted us, it’s Aidrie’s fault for not playing in a manner that lets us win.....it’s always someone else’s fault. FFC have never apologised for anything since the days of the tent renter. Why should they when it’s always someone else’s fault? Whatever the “culture” is at FFC, it’s undemanding, and it’s garbage, and it shows no sign of changing.

    I’ve got family born and raised in France. Your argument is as xenophobic, inward, and insular as ... well, Brexit. By the way, I’m sure the majority of normal English folk don’t give a flying f**k what Scottish “unionists” think - probably, they view your gang of misfits as more akin to the knuckle-dragging embarrassments currently breaking windows in Northern Ireland than “kith and kin” to themselves. So, you know, it might be worth considering that your blood-and-soil, nineteenth-century ideas of love and loyalty to Mother Britannia aren’t shared by the people whose boots you long to lick.

    Indoor environments that magically prevent Covid transmission from person to person: churches (up to 50); schools (1000+). Indoor environments that are completely unsafe and must never be used: pubs (with alcohol); inside a house with anyone outside your shan 'bubble'.

    EdinburghLive continuing with their outrage at people out enjoying themselves yesterday. https://www.edinburghlive.co.uk/news/edinburgh-news/crowds-flock-edinburghs-portobello-beach-20316372 https://www.edinburghlive.co.uk/news/edinburgh-news/thousands-gather-edinburgh-meadows-breaching-20317343 F*** off, people have had an absolute shite time of it and we have been in lockdown for 3 months, the sun came out timely for Friday and Saturday and they needed to get outside and get some vitamin D. Also EdinburghLive not understanding the meaning of stay local in the Portobello article, the majority of these people will have come from the same area. These articles give the wrong impression, the angle of the photo from Portobello gives the impression of no social distancing, I can see social distancing. Mental heath affects your well being and your physical health, this will probably gave a lot of people a big lift and a chance to get away from the house. Looking at the photos it seems more like an average cross section of ages you would find anywhere on a nice day and they are behaving themselves, I cant see why anyone's knickers are getting in a twist over this. Has anyone noticed that the huge jump in cases expected from the thousands of Rangers fans celebrating the league title never happened and was ignored when they realised the case numbers were still falling? Why does our media want us to hide under our beds forever?

    I’m involved with the initiative. Won’t comment on other things with the campaign but just so you know, Hibs was put forward by us. Hibs played in his testimonial and brought through a decent support. A game vs Chelsea would certainly add glamour but might just be a reserve/U19 team particularly with the Euros being on. Ultimately though it’s not about the club making partnerships it’s about honouring Kevin. Their manager is a Falkirk man and Kevin is held in high regard by Hibs fans whereas a lot of the Chelsea support will know much less about him. Would rather folk turn up to honour Crunchie than be enticed by the opposition. Don’t get me wrong a full strength Chelsea team would be great but we made the choice to try Hibs based on the various factors. Had some good battles with Hibs in recent years too. A fallback could always be Camelon Juniors. Again it’s about making a day of it for fans to celebrate Crunchie than something for the club, who will equally benefit either way. Anyway just wanted explain the thought process but I do get your point.

    Even the March of the Day Facebook page put up a status yesterday reporting the news. I made a pretty terrible but relatively inoffensive joke about how Phil was a big part of Ancelotti's AC Milan team of the mid 2000s. Have just checked Facebook for the first time since and this has made some people very angry. Good.

    Maybe being on here 24/7 for months on end isn't good for some people. Good point. I'd thought it might be the deaths, endless restrictions, being unable to see friends or family and lots of people having to worry about their jobs, but it's The Pie and Bovril Football Forum that's the real bad point.

    On the TV scheduling thing, the wife brought it up earlier which led to her being reminded, as she had inexplicably forgotten, about my vitriol towards "royalty". Always gives me a tremendous buzz to tell her il accept her post of view if she just gives me one reason why any human should be born deserving of more respect than either her or me. And as a wee extra after the last year, to ask her why we should specifically mourn this guy who made it to 99 courtesy of a life of pure luxury, wealth and the best health care on our buck, whilst over 100k people and counting have died having funded a health care system that was found seriously wanting in the face of a pandemic. Real catharsis in rinsing those who revere the head of the snake tbqh.

    It's not even production values either, I think most folk would accept that it's not going to be as slick as MotD, but Sportscene is very frequently just an utterly joyless programme. It's football highlights by numbers - you can predict the exact format of the programme every week based on knowing the scores and a couple of the incidents. I usually watch it on catch-up or on the iPlayer and skip through all the analysis apart from the stuff on the Killie games. To be honest, if the YouTube SPFL highlights had commentary I probably wouldn't even bother with Sportscene, which is a shame. I think BBC Sport Scotland needs a bit of a shake up in general in terms of all it's output - we've still got, by and large, the same folk as 10-15 years ago (or more in many cases) doing the bulk of the coverage on TV and radio, and that means it lacks a freshness and modernity. Kenny McIntyre still trying his sub-Jim Traynor shock jock nonsense on Sportsound is the nadir of that, but there doesn't seem to be any sign of it moving in a different direction.

William, unable to control his anger any more getting in Harry's face with shouts of 'Wit ye daein here anyway, he's no even yer fuckin' granda!!!'

    The only folk pissing me off more than Leitch and these other lockdown fanatics are the media, who have almost without exception been an absolute disgrace. Chasing dramatic headlines which are undoubtedly fucking with people's heads and fuelling the conspiratorial pish of anti-vax nutjobs with no recriminations is utterly unacceptable. Devi Sridhar is at this point little better than a literate Facebook Maw with a blue tick. The sooner she's punted back to whatever irrelevant shite she was doing before, the better.

    Agree, she was excellent - in fact, she sounded like a professional broadcaster who was focused on describing what was happening. An island of competence in a sea of drivel. When Thistle inevitably conceded Yinited's late winner yesterday, Willie could barely contain his joy at "getting to go home". One of the most annoying tics on OOM is the moan-banter between the (generally older) "reporters" about wanting to get home for their tea. Yeah, you've got a really tough gig watching the football for a living, lads. Dismal stuff.

    Daily Cases Update: Astonishing day with cases down over 8% in the last 24 hour recorded period. How can Scotgov possibly not allow better than Level 3 to certain councils when the decision is made in the next week or so. It is also good to see it is not just the usual East/West divide of numbers. Dumfries & Galloway population just shy of 150,000 has a total of Zero Covid cases. Scottish Borders population about 115,000 with 4 cases. The Islands once again all Covid free. The cities of Edinburgh & Aberdeen with a population of 750,000 !!! have just over 200 cases between them.

    A bit of complacency creeping in to some of our fanbase by the look of things. Arbroath, despite their league position, are more than capable of giving us grief. We're a really good side at the moment but I'm never comfortable with the assumption that we'll easily roll teams over.
