  1. I thought we said no Peter Kay's Car Share, or am I
  2. Interesting, I'd be happy with that. https://www.peterboroughtoday.co.uk/sport/football/peterborough-united/peterborough-united-agree-fee-second-scottish-premier-league-side-mark-ohara-2890382
  3. You try summat and that's...
  4. A cow has four stomachs.
  5. After my Glencairn glass suffered a crack and the other smaller stumpier one barely served its purpose, I decided to invest in a copita glass as I'd always wanted one. Had my first dram in it last night and can honestly say it was one of the best whisky experiences I've had. I had no idea how the shape of a glass could enhance the smell of the whisky. It's quite a large copita with a decent sized base so plenty of swirling capability which seems to release more aroma. With a smaller Glencairn my nose was almost too close to the malt so could only really smell the alcohol but no such trouble with a deeper glass. Had a Tomintoul 16 miniature I'd been saving and was really enjoyable. I've had a rule where I only have 5 bottles at any one time, which stops me from blowing all my money on bottles I'll take a lifetime to drink. But recently I've finished off a Laphroaig 10 and a Dalwhinnie 15, leaving two Balvenies and a Royal Lochnagar 12. Enjoying the Deanston reviews on here so I might look in that direction, and am considering either an Ardbeg or a Lagavulin 16 to keep Islay represented. It's probably been mentioned earlier in the thread but does anyone have any subscriptions etc they would recommend where they get a certain number of samples a month for example?
  6. "Scottish football is abysmal"?? Hope Jamie drowns in the pool tbh.
  7. Heard her asking Luke T whether there would ever be a boy, born, who could swim faster than a shark.
  8. I couldn't make the game today but would have taken a point before kick off given the sheer scale of injuries we have at the moment. I'll take it all the more seeing as we were 3-1 down. That is excellent attitude from the players to step up and grind that out in the circumstances. Injury-dependent we should be looking to take all three at Perth next week.
  9. I'm glad someone's paying attention. The rest of you should hang your heads in shame. *Hastily edits post*
  10. Really enjoyed that yesterday despite the rain, swirling wind and general poor game. I thought we didn't play all that well again but sheer hard work and determination from a depleted squad saw us through. We should have had the game dead and buried before the hour and I have no idea what we were doing in the closing stages to see the game out, but we did. Morias was a right handful and I so want him to do well, he gives everything and has shown a great attitude despite not really having much of a sniff since joining. Magennis looked far more interested today but nowhere near his best. Ryan Flynn looked a tad uncomfortable at right back but fair play to him for putting in a shift, and was still a great asset in moving the ball out of defence across the pitch. Highlights - three points, Cammy MacPherson (for his goal and overall dogged performance you need against Accies), the return of Cody Cooke and his majestic hair, and the chant to Sam Stubbs telling him his dad's a w****r. But then again he probably already knows that. Another must win on Saturday, hope we've not lost anyone further to injury.
  11. Has he been punted?? It's a Christmas miracle. What did he say this time?
  12. I thought that was odd too, maybe he was responding to our bitterness that we're the only full time side he's never played for? As if it needed to be said, that's a huge 3 points. I'd put it in the "must win" category before kickoff given how poor our away form has been. We should really be looking to beat every bottom 6 side (Hibs perhaps excluded for now) at home. We were poor in the first half, most balls to Obika returned nothing and our overall play was laboured. County looked threatening on the break, took their goal well and thought we were undeservedly level at the break. No idea what happened at the goal as I thought the referee had awarded a penalty before the ball hit the net. Clearly not! Second half we were far better. We kept creating opportunities and Durmus should have scored before he was taken off. Bar one short spell, Saints were well on top and deserved the win. That wee bit of skill from Kyle Mc and the incredible finish from Foley being the difference. Given how much better we were in the second half, I thought we just edged it although County can count themselves unlucky. Incidentally I was quite surprised at the relative strength of the County bench: Foster, Erwin, Spittal, Paton, Watson...are these guys getting a look in normally or is there a good reason they're not starting?
