    As mentioned on the other thread, Sean Dillon. Might be a long one this. I got a couple of tickets for a Montrose vs Airdrie game back in 2019 and took a guy I know with learning difficulties who loves football as I thought it might be a decent wee day out for him. The guy is a Dundee United fan and asked if he would get to meet Sean Dillon, I said yes and unbeknown to me he filled his wee bag with about 30 pictures and other assorted bits of memorabilia, mainly from Dundee United's Scottish Cup win and asked Sean Dillon to sign them. I was a wee bit embarrassed and thought 1 or 2 would have been alright but this was a bit too much. Dillon on the other hand stood there for a good 45 minutes talking about the final and going through each of the pictures indivually, talking about the players involved and since there was some of the pictures that were signed but some of the cup final squad but not all of them, he said to message him nearer to the time of the cup final reunion last year and he would try and arrange to have the signatures completed. I fully believe that he would have stood there for hours knowing how much it meant to my pal but if I remember correctly, he had to head off to Brechin as he was going to visit an elderly Dundee United fan on his way home. To some folk it might just be a few pictures getting signed but this guy got to spend a reasonable amount of time with one of his heroes and his been nipping my head asking when I'm taking him back to another game[emoji23] TL;DR: Sean Dillon=Gid c**t

    Will go on record and say that the last 4 months have been the only time in my life I've been even remotely embarrassed to be a Thistle fan. I can always accept shite players, shite games, shite seasons and shite managers. Relegation and cup pumpings are part and parcel of supporting a diddy team, so you can always accept it. But the utter nonsense we are hitting out with just now is beyond parody. The world literally came to a standstill. Hundreds of thousands of people have died, many thousands more have lost loved ones, jobs, etc. Football was and is irrelevant in the grand scheme of things. There was never going to be a solution that satisfied every team, so it makes complete sense the worst teams in each division bare the brunt of it. Hearts and Thistle only have themselves to blame.

    Though us m9s are often accused of being impartial to a Celtic and Hibs love-in on here, I think it's fair to say that this one might have a bit more needle than usual given the week Celtic have had. Live on the Sky cameras on Monday night, maybe we'll be treated to a glorious rant from Shagger Ross™? "When you swan off to Dubai in the middle of a pandemic, like they have this past week, and when you push fixtures back 48 hours like they did with us, I've kept really quiet, but I'll tell you something. They went down in my estimation when they did that. We have not resorted to that, but I'll tell you, you can tell them now if they've got Hibs TV on over there, we're still fighting for that second Champions League spot, and they've got to come back to Glasgow and get something, and... and... I'll tell you, honestly, I will love it if we beat them, love it."

    He gets a bit of stick from certain people but a real heartwarming story I feel I should share about Leigh Griffiths. Some of you may be aware I lost my 16 year old daughter last summer, a mate of mine knows Leigh Griffiths and his mum quite well and he, off his own back called LG up and told him about my families tragedy and the wee man gave my mate Chris a pair of signed boots by himself, a signed matchworn Celtic shirt signed by himself and a couple of team mates and a pair of boots signed by Tom Rogic to pass on to me for us to sell or auction for charity in her name. I have these items at home and we are planning a charity fund raising night in her memory in our local once lockdown is over with monies raised probably going to the Mermaid foundation, a charity that helps children who are LGBT and have suffered and have additional mental health issues connected to this, will probably be a race night with a raffle etc and will likely auction these items on the night. Leigh Griffiths did this and donated these items off his own back when he heard of my families tragedy and, by all accounts has made similar gestures in the past without seeking publicity for it, it is something I was incredibly moved by and are eternally grateful for.

    It should be noted that 12 million people in England, predominantly in the North, are currently living in Tier 3 restrictions with many workplaces told to close down. Local leaders, notably Andy Burnham, relentlessly asked for 80% furlough to be reinstated. It was refused, they were told there was no way it would happen. Wales asked for the 80% furlough to be extended for their firebreak, and for extra business support. It was refused. Scotland rushed their circuit break to get in before furlough ended, and has asked persistently for the scheme to be extended since summer. It was refused. But now the south of England is being locked down? Predictably it’s no hassle at all. I have a real sense the UK is collapsing in on itself, and not just Scotland anymore. This crisis has exposed that devolution doesn’t truly work for anyone, and I include the UK Government in that. It was barely a week ago they were refusing to support Greater Manchester with another £5m! But now the south is going through the same thing, money is apparently no object. Very hard for Johnson to hide from the reality of his actions. I can only hope he’s finally seen for the gutless, pathetic coward that he is.

    My old dad has beaten this fucking thing (he tested positive in the middle of the week but i didn't want to post it up here until he got better). The c**t's 80 so fair play. He was ill for about 2 weeks and i was getting really worried, mainly because he'd decided he would self-sacrifice because he didn't want to burden the nhs (which was not in any way overrun but he took a lot of convincing). He then choked pretty bad (a separate thing he's had for the last few years) and when it didn't clear he ended up in a&e at the ayr hospital. It cleared itself before he went to bed on the first night and the next day they wanted to test him for covid due to his other symptoms (which he seemed to be recovering from by that stage). He got home but was phoned and told he had tested positive. My mum is generally a bit healthier and not as old but she has been ill at the same time as him - with quite mild symptoms that only lasted 3-4 days. So both of the old b*****ds have dodged a bullet. I'm 39 and I've always been pretty pragmatic about the prospect of them dying. I've thought about it a reasonable amount, and tried to prepare myself (as much as you can). But I'm not afraid to admit my heart has had a few wee flutters recently. And it's so frustrating not being able to visit. I've gradually started to give him half a cuddle whenever i visit over the last few years (as we say goodbye). Next time I'm down I'm going for the full on man hug.

    This new incarnation of Rangers is so tragic. The old Rangers had a genuine 'we don't care attitude' which came from a deluded arrogance that they were just better than everyone - on and off the park. They were a horrible club and it was their false belief that they were superior that made them so horrible. This new version is an insecure, paranoid, desperate shadow of a club that are now permanent victims of supposed injustices. Their former belief that they were superior has now been replaced by a desperate need to feel superior, whilst knowing that they aren't. Their very birth was born out of what they felt was an injustice and it is now in their DNA to complain, moan and play the victim - characteristics which used to be the sole domain of the Green half of Glasgow. This whole saga just sums the new club up.

    I've written enough longwinded rants on this subject in the last couple of months, but - f**k it - what's one more? Celtic Football Club, if there's a bigger set of self-entitled arseholes walking the earth then I'm fortunately yet to meet them. And the two in particular are Neil Lennon and Peter Lawwell, who seem to think that the rules (or the spirit of the rules in this case, before some hooped pedant picks me up on it) just don't need to apply to ra sellick. What grates so much about this is that EVERY. SINGLE. STEP. of this was so utterly predictable from the very moment Celtic got this game pushed back in November. It's genuinely as if a sitcom writer had the story mapped out: Celtic, under pressure after a bad run of results, coerce the SPFL into moving their game after the next Old Firm back 48 hours so they can have some r + r time. Hibs refuse to agree to this but are told "tough, it's happening" Anyone with a brain can spot that Celtic are planning to go to Dubai again, despite cases rising all the time throughout November, December and into January The weakness of the Joint Response Group, Scottish FA and - to a lesser extent - Scottish government means that nobody puts them back in their box Despite eye-watering rises in British cases and Dubai becoming a hotbed of social media 'influencers' living it up, Celtic carry on as planned Celtic make the critical error of losing the Old Firm, which means even their own demented fans are unhappy with them swanning off to Dubai The day after they fly out, lockdown is announced in Scotland Celtic's mealy mouthed statement is that they didn't technically do anything wrong A Celtic player tests positive on their return The SPFL now have a further dilemma re what to with Killie and St Mirren's appeal The path of this was obvious from the second the ball got rolling. And this would all be a bit less galling if Celtic's support weren't the very same who insist that they are victims of a conspiracy to keep their club down. No other club in Scotland - apart from Rangers - would have been allowed within 100 feet of the airport to go off on a 'training camp' when there's no fucking winter break and they've had to manipulate the fixtures to manufacture one for themselves. In case it wasn't obvious from the above, I fucking hate those c***s.

    Hey everyone, As you’ll know, I don’t post on here very often, but I’ve had a few drinks tonight while the wife snores loudly beside me on the couch so I thought, ‘what the hell?’. I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who watches the show and especially those who recommend it to others and continue to champion it. I really don’t say this lightly but I thought tonight was one of the best shows we’ve done, which is why I broke my usual rule of not reading comments/forums (I truly believe in the old advice of ‘you should treat praise and criticism just the same’) to come on here and have a quick read. And that’s it really. Without guys/girls like you the podcast wouldn’t exist and neither would the TV show, so I just wanted to express my gratitude for that. Take care everyone. Fowler x

    Everyone here will have witnessed tinpot behaviour from their own club at some point, especially in official club statements. This division has Hearts, Dundee, Caley Thistle, Dunfermline, Raith and Morton in it, it's got too much box office incompetence in boardrooms past and present to keep up with. That statement though. Fucking ooft. In just four sentences they've managed to produce a piece of tinpottery of such magnificence it rivals some Partick Thistle and Falkirk statements from the summer. It's as humongous a f**k you to supporters as Eric Drysdale's 80,000 word explanation of why Raith Rovers fans are complete dickheads for daring to question why their club let David Bates go to Rangers for a payment of a discarded Bounty wrapper, a white dog jobbie and Scott Roberts on loan. It's not quite as pitiful as Kenny Shiels claiming he couldn't give post-match interviews because of medical advice towards the end of his time at Morton while Douglas Rae was running to the papers calling his players fat lazy messes every week, or as pathetic as John Hughes saying he would let the kitman do the team talk the following week having blamed his squandering of an 11 point cushion over relegation rivals who'd just pumped them 5-0 on the ills of society, but it's certainly a contender for the top five most tone-deaf and toe curling things a club at this level has put out over the last decade. They've managed that in a mere 59 words. You have to admire this level of incompetence. It's the kind of thing that tells you a club is going to have a truly memorable relegation season that will haunt them for years, where the club is a shitshow from top to bottom and sorting it out on the pitch the following season and bouncing back up isn't going to come close to undoing the damage.

    Liam Craig. Just an absolute gent of a man. I knew him from his time at Falkirk, and when Honest Saints Fan was going through her transplant in hospital and having an utter shite time of it, he got in touch to say if there was anything he could do to help just say the word. I asked him to make a wee video on his phone with him and Tommy Wright just saying they were thinking of her and it wouldn't be long before she was back at McDiarmid and he went totally above and beyond. She ended up with a 5 minute video with half the squad individually wishing her well, profesionally produced by the media team. I honestly was hoping for a 30 second clip wishing her well but he just knocked it out the park. It really lifted her spirits and was so touching. He also arranged a signed top for her and sent it up and always asking after her. He's a fucking diamond. Indebted to him. I was greeting when I saw him lifting the league cup.

    The Pfizer vaccine is the boss. No doubt saved my mother's life and many others at the care home she stays. Everyone was vaccinated with the first jag back during the first and second week of January, the virus struck later that month. My mother is nearly 80, a liver transplant patient and has to take immune suppressants to stop her body rejecting the organ and was diagnosed with dementia in 2013 and moved to the care home in 2018. From what I was told she caught the virus and was asymptomatic and had to be isolated, quite stressful as she wouldn't know what was going on. A couple of days ago she got the all clear and is now zipping about the rooms and corridors with her frame, enjoying tea and cake with her friends, chatting and happy, almost back to normal life. The carer I spoke to yesterday talked about that they are due to get their second jag very soon. So relieved and happy right now, its like a nightmare that has passed. This vaccine of Pfizer if it can do this for the most vulnerable people to the virus, .......I mean I'm amazed how effective it is after all everyone has been put through over the last year, there is a light, an end in sight. Get everyone vaccinated and put an end to this lockdown and the fear factory madness. Pfizer vaccine cigars this vaccination, looks like the AZ does too. When are the pubs open?

    It’s all our fault because we won most of our games, and had the fucking audacity to expect some sort of promotion for it. In the words of Tom English “what did they expect?” and in the words of any Jambo with a fucking megaphone, “any club in our position would do the same thing”. Clearly what they expect of us is to accept that even though Hearts were fucking rancid all season, we should forego our promotion, just because it’s inconvenient for them not be in the top league anymore. Clearly, in order to claim the moral high ground these days, what you have to do is lose most of your games, use the cover of a global pandemic to try to save your arses from the inevitable outcome of ending up dead last, go in the huff when you don’t get what you want, trying to bankrupt everybody else in the process, and to cap it off, express a real desire to shite all over the front lawn of the people you are trying your very best to f**k right over. Hearts fans continuing to uphold the fine traditions of their club I see.

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.

    Many of you will be aware of the Hot Potato thread which has been running on the forum for a few years, where basically the biggest loser on the opening day gets awarded the "potato", and then keeps it until they win a game, at which point it is passed to their opponents. Recently on that thread there was some discussion about the possibility of an all-time hot potato. As a self-confessed "jammy wearer" as per @HibsFan's vernacular, I already had all the data on hand to work this out, and have therefore spent the last little while crunching the numbers to find out. Rather than polluting the 2020/21 thread any further, I thought I would start my own separate thread. The way this worked was as follows: On the very first day of Scottish League football (16th August 1890), the hot potato was awarded to the side which suffered the heaviest defeat. That team then holds the potato until they win a game, at which point it is passed to their opponents. The potato continues to be passed around the top flight, with the team who finished one season with it keeping a hold of it over the summer. If a team is relegated whilst holding the potato, they keep that potato for all eternity and a new potato is distributed at the start of the next season. The new potato is again distributed to the side which suffered the heaviest defeat on the first day of the next season. A couple of additional points on my methodology: This works very strictly on days, not matchdays, so if the opening game of the season is on the Friday night whoever loses that will get the potato, even if someone loses more heavily on the Saturday (or Sunday). This is slightly different to how @deej runs the season-by-season ones, mainly because this is much easier to programme. If all the matches on the opening day are draws then we wait until the next day to hand out the potato. If two or more teams suffer equally heavy defeats on the opening day, preference is given to a team which loses at home. If there is still a tie, then the potato is randomly allocated to one of the teams who lose most heavily. Now that I've laid down the ground rules, this thread is going to take you by the hand and lead you through the long and storied history of the Scottish football hot potato, from 1890-2021 (and beyond). We're going to see a total of 31 potatoes being shared around 44 different clubs, and we will discover that even after 131 years, the battle to be the biggest bunch of pathetic losers in Scottish football history is still neck-and-neck in 2021.

    Rangers never really recovered from the loss of Andrew Dallas pre-match.

    I’ll qualify this by saying im not a royalist, ive no time for the concept of people being elevated above others a consequence of birth. See heres the thing though, the royals had the chance to score a massive PR boom in the midst of millenial culture by getting behind and supporting them, welcoming a non white person into the family etc (wouldnt bother me but im not a mouth foaming racist) would have broken down barriers in the british societal psychy at a time when arguably its needed. On Harry, hes actually the only one of the royals ive any time for, the british press (and possibly the duke) hounded and killed his mother then they forced him, a child, to march about london behind her coffin for what would have been the 1990’s version of social media clout/pr. The guy grew up a but messed up, the partying/being an arsehole/nazi stuff and then joined the army and screwed the nut to the point where people who’ve worked under him have commented that he was an exceptional infantry soldier who properly mucked in whilst in Afghan, again, his career ruined by the media. So he reaches out and creates a brilliant charity in the invictus games and helps break down the stigma of mental health. But still gets painted as a wrong un because he had the audacity to marry a lassie who was black and knocked back Piers Morgan when he asked her out. Whole thing absolutely reeks of institutional and media racism and the people being outraged by it all like Shilton and all the pinkest of gammon fuckers just really contributes to all that. All these folk having a go at a wee ginger guy who on the face of it appears to do quite a bit of good, yet ignoring his absolute wrong yin paedo Uncle who’s apparently the Queens favoruite. Get the whole family and theyre hingers on right in the sea.
