    AGEING, UNEMPLOYED IMMIGRANT CAUSES HIGHWAY CARNAGE. Emergency services were scrambled to a road traffic accident near Sandringham today when a 97 year old Greek immigrant pulled out into oncoming traffic. The Greek father of four who has been living on state benefits since his arrival in the UK in 1947 and is housed in a Grade2 Jacobean style mansion in the area worth millions of pounds was unavailable for comment. Neighbours said "You often see the family in the area, none of them seem to work but they always have money". Another local resident reported often hearing firearms being discharged in the garden of 97 year olds home.

    Not unique to football but I've heard liquidation means something different in football to other businesses.

    Nobody goes for the quality. You go week in week out because once every wee while you'll get games which are beyond belief. See example A: Pretty much every club in the league has a day in the sun moment. One you'll talk about to people time and time again. Fans of English clubs and the Old Firm don't really get it. Within the past 11 years I've seen Rovers win the league at Hampden, seen them in a Scottish Cup Semi Final after knocking out Aberdeen and Dundee, beat Hibs in the Scottish Cup and Rangers in the diddy cup final at Easter Road too. I've also seen us relegated by Brechin and hit the post in the 90th minute to not win a league. I wouldn't trade a single moment of those highs for any double treble. I fucking love it.

    I've said this before on here, but it's no surprise that the folk I know, were in school with, worked with, who were fucking idiots and not very bright. all support Celtic or Rangers. The sound folk I know, who actually seem fairly normal and intelligent, support ICT, County, Aberdeen, know a Killie fan from up here too and he's a good lad. It's an exact science IMO, the thicker you are, the size of fucking scummy arsehole roaster you are, the more likely you are to cling onto something to make you feel better about yourself. A football team that wins 9 games out of 10 for example.

    Ive only read the first page but thought I would add my tuppenceworth. I was a season ticket holder for 7 years at Parkhead. I’ve drank in near enough every ‘Celtic’ pub in Glasgow and seen both ends of the spectrum when it comes to the fans. From my experience there is respectable fans who want nothing to do with singing the rebels or going to the game to make some political point (there’s more than you think). These are the minority at the games, especially away games. Most of the fans I know that fall into this bracket don’t go to any Celtic games at all. These fans usually lead quite fulfilling lives and Celtic aren’t the first thing on their mind when they wake up. Some Celtic fans will try and tell themselves different, but it’s the absolute dregs of society that associate themselves to it, genuine poverty cases. There isn’t many lecturers, lawyers or architects standing amongst them. I got bored of it all, I go to football to watch the team on the park win and when I walk out the stadium it won’t affect my life win, lose or draw. I used to sit near a guy who had a season ticket with his two young daughters (both under 10) and I witnessed him punching the wall on the way down the stairs after a draw against Motherwell I think it was. A big part in me chucking my season ticket was asking myself, would I like to bring my child to a game here, surrounded by some proper mutants who don’t have a button in their pocket. I hated these Celtic fans thinking we had some sort of special bond with each other just down to the fact we both supported the same team. I have no loyalty or affinity to a fellow Celtic fan just because he happened to support the same club, it’s quite strange Two seasons ago, my St. Mirren supporting friend from Uni talked me into going to a few games and it’s a far more enjoyable experience. I’m not a die hard by any stretch of the imagination but I try and go along to most home games. It’s good to sit amongst a support that are only there for the team, and not there to make some political standpoint or seeing what songs they can get away with singing.

    I appreciate all the comments in this thread about the first series of A View from the Terrace - as mentioned previously, it's always good to know what works well and what we can do to improve on some things going forward (and there are already some superb ideas in the pipeline for next season). It's been tremendous fun for everyone involved and I think we bowed out on a strong note on Friday night. A new TV show about Scottish football is unlikely to please everyone, and I can accept some of the criticism in this thread and on social media, but if you think Duncan McKay's trip to Stirling Albion to work as their groundsman for the day was "pointless" then A View from the Terrace isn't for you and you should probably watch something else. To address another point raised over the weekend, I've seen one or two comments on Twitter along the lines of "this should have been given to Si and Slaney" - would Open Goal, in its current format, benefit by being on TV? In what way would that make their product better? Open Goal can do whatever they want on YouTube, and good luck to them going forward. I don't understand why some people feel it's one or the other, A View form the Terrace or Open Goal. Kevin Kyle's comments on Friday night, made seven minutes into the show, were pretty funny, right enough. He shouldn't have deleted his original tweet; I wonder if someone had a word with him about it. I hope to see you all in a couple of months, enjoy your summer!

    To be fair, if it is 3m as reported, that’s a 100k for every game the boy’s ever started for Motherwell. Also, a million quid for every goal he scored against top six opposition last season... In all seriousness though, it’s a phenomenal amount of money for the club and some people seem to have lost sight of that. For a player who, as the Capt says above, could have quite easily walked away and left us for pennies(comparatively speaking) like Hastie did. Since taking over Alan Burrows(and co) have surely now wiped out the club dept, taken in 5m in player sales(give or take) and will probably be posting there second seven figure profit of his tenure on the back of this deal. They have quite frankly done a remarkable job in a short space of time and deserve a bit more respect than some of the arseholes on social media show him/them. Maybe I’m wired slightly different, however seeing grown adults greeting and demanding answers from the club on social media is an absolute fucking mile oot.

    Been involved in the live music scene for 30 years, putting on thousands of gigs in that time, and I’ve rarely met anyone in the business who hasn’t been sound. Only a handful of people were remotely difficult. One legendary jazz artist (who shall remain nameless as I’m still a huge fan, and advanced age might have been a factor here - some people keep touring long after they should have stopped) wouldn’t let me near his saxophone case when I collected him from the airport and declined my offer to help with his luggage with a sharp ‘no one touches my sax’ rebuke. He was surly and uncommunicative all day and only warmed up a bit after he’d been paid (in full, in cash, Chuck Berry-style) before the show in the dressing room. David Thomas from Pere Ubu was hard work, mainly because of mobility issues and health problems. When I put them on he was clearly just tired of life on the road. Again I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt. Kurt Cobain was ‘difficult’, but not because he wasn’t a lovely guy (he was), but because he sometimes needed medical attention and assistance before a show, as he suffered from chronic stomach problems and other medical issues. Finding a GP available to make a outcall on a weekend night 30 minutes before stage time was fun. The Happy Mondays were basically good-natured chavs, but their crew / hangers on had to be deterred from just walking behind the bar and helping themselves to free drinks after they’d tanned their hospitality rider. If it’s wasn’t locked away they would have drunk it. Michael Gira from Swans had a difficult reputation, and I remember walking around town with him for what seemed like hours until we found a very particular type of Cuban cigar, but I got on ok with him. In all the time I’ve put on gigs, only one person has really stood out as being an arse - Tim Booth from James. Put them on in the late ‘80s at the Venue in Edinburgh just as they were getting popular. The rest of the band, crew and tour manager arrived well before him (he travelled separately) and everything was set up ready to go. He swanned in late for soundcheck, took one look at the venue, and announced to the tour manager, ‘I’m not playing here, it’s a bloody pub’, then turned around and walked promptly back out, presumably to get back on the first train to Manchester. A 350 capacity ‘pub’ that much bigger bands than his played before and since (Beastie Boys, Happy Mondays, Stone Roses - too many to mention). I had to refund everyone’s tickets. Can’t remember having another gig pulled in similar circumstances in 30 years. About six months later I put them on again at a different, slightly bigger, venue just down the road (Calton Studios). Tried to keep out of his way all day, but had to pop into the dressing room to speak to the tour manager, to be greeted with Booth pointing at me and shouting ‘you’re the bloke from that bloody pub!’ He must have been in a good mood that day as the gig went ahead. I’ve heard some horror stories from other promoters and artists though. It seems clear, from all the stories I’ve heard, that the single most difficult, rude and discourteous man in rock is Van Morrison. Only heard the stories second hand so won’t reproduce them here, but I feel sorry for anyone who has ever promoted him or toured with him in the past.

    This is the last bastion argument of anyone who doesn't want change to happen. It doesn't matter what the change is. Change always requires both the management of risk and the acceptance that not everything will happen as planned. Some things will be better and some not. The real question is whether you think the risk is being managed and what are the chances of it becoming a reality. In any assessment of the risk around Scotland being accepted as a member of the EU, you'd score it Green. Similarly, you'd find any assessment of Scotland's ability to work to EU requirements whilst the process of full membership was worked through would also be Green. In both cases because the will of both parties is to make it happen. Only morons can honestly believe that Scotland would be cut adrift. The same applies to currency. Every country in the world uses currency. Scotland will not revert to bartering with porridge and wind power. There may be a migration to the end point rather than a big bang but that is actually preferable in terms of securing a stable platform for disentangling from the UK. Brexit on the other hand has been managed as a xenophobic clusterfuck where the UK has spouted endless pish whilst delivering f**k all - hence the reason we're 10 days out and they're arguing about 17th century protocol. Utter fannies.

    Hammer the clubs, by deducting a single solitary point from their league total...everytime there is a political song sung, a sectarian song sun, a coin fired onto a football pitch, supporters breaching pitch-side barriers, seats broken (because of over-exuberance or otherwise), flags flown in support of terrorist organisations... ...Celtic would be absolutely fucked if that was the case, or they might actually get their house in order.

    The same way as most other fans do - jump up and down, hug your mate, throw both arms up in the air, give the oppo’ fans a GIRFUY, start singing a team song.... or, invade the field, try for a selfie while doing it, smash a disabled section roof.... your call, cnut. Apologies for the final word, but seeing as how you are clearly saying that was an acceptable way to celebrate a goal, then, fully deserved IMHO.

    On self-preservation, the original EoS 13 clubs set the example. They invited all comers to join them at the same level, pushing back their deadlines to accommodate everyone and creating conferences, outnumbering themselves two-to-one, knowing it would make it vastly harder for them to reach the LL, ensuring a tough season for most of them and a brutal season for some, all in the name of unifying the grades. If they hadn't, the PWG would still be at square one today. They're the only group of clubs that have made a sacrifice in the interests of the game. For that, I really think they deserve to be recognised as the only non-league feeder to the LL (or LL2) in the south-east of Scotland.

    That's the thing I don't get, though. If nothing is going to change for these lower league clubs (which is the case), then what have they got to lose by going into the pyramid ? Absolutely nothing is the real answer. The lower league teams won't need to apply for grants, they won't need to set up youth teams, they won't need to become Community Clubs, there are no unnecessary chores. Their existence won't change in any way. They will still be playing the same teams in the same league structure. The benefits to them will be that they will be more marketable, i.e. they can tell their potential fans and sponsors that they are at tier "X" in the Scottish football pyramid, instead of Joe Punter on the street thinking that junior football is for kids, like way too many still do. I just don't get why any club in the West Region would not want this to happen, as there are absolutely no negatives for them, only positives and opportunities.

    Thanks for all your messages! My head is rattling with pills so awake at stupid hours just now, just as well I'm use to it as hopefully Fraser will be home in the not too distant future. That's him taking quite a few bottle feeds this week and his oxygen is even lower. The wee smasher. As for me, it's all positive from now on.

    Ive not had a drink since March 10th. My situations a bit different though as Im an alcoholic and this is my first proper attempt to get off it. Went from being a heavy drinker in my late teens through to a problem drinker in my early-mid 20s to a full on jakeball the last couple of years. The hardest bit for me is not being able to go certain places. I know my limitations and I cant sit in pubs all day or get the supporters bus to away games. I dont think I would drink straight away if I did those things but complacency would gradually set in and I just wouldnt enjoy being in those places without a booze. So Ive had to change my whole life basically. Its all about finding other things you can do. Ive rekindled my interest in a lot of things that I stopped doing when the booze took over and Im currently getting tore into a Masters Degree (excuse no to have to work for a year). And before any c**t says it the apostrophe button is indeed broke on there shitey UWS computers.
