  1. I'm going to be honest with you guys here - it might not actually be the 10th anniversary. I think it *probably* is but so many older posts have been culled from P&B and I don't keep accurate historical records. For promotional purposes though, we'll go along with the 10th anniversary schtick. To mark the occasion, this year's winner will not only be able to call themselves the 2018 Last Man Standing champion but will also win A SPECIAL 10TH ANNIVERSARY MYSTERY PRIZE BOX~~! Are you excited? I'm excited. Anyway, on to the nitty gritty: You've got a little over five weeks to get your picks in, with this year's event starting from the opening fixtures of the new SPFL season. Last year's winner was wullie360! The rules are as follows... Your first entry must be in by 19:00 on Friday 3rd August. That's the cut off point for entries. You must post in one of the four divisional threads each week (providing you have survived the previous week) and pick another team for the following week. Just remember; you can't pick a team you have already used. Weekend Scottish fixtures only (Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday). A full Gameweek consists of 50% or more of SPFL teams playing. Win only. Draw or lose and you're out. You can only pick each team once. You can pick a team that someone else has already picked, it just means you can't pick that team again. If everyone remaining is knocked out in the same weekend, they will be put back in for the next week until we have a winner. In the unlikely event of postponements, you will stay until the next week but you will be unable to pick that team again. Fixtures (Sat 3pm unless stated) Premiership Celtic vs Livingston Hamilton vs Hearts Hibs vs Motherwell Kilmarnock vs St Johnstone St Mirren vs Dundee Aberdeen vs Rangers (Sun 13:00) Championship Ayr United vs Partick Thistle Dundee United vs Dunfermline Falkirk vs Inverness CT Morton vs Queen of the South Ross County vs Alloa League 1 East Fife vs Dumbarton Forfar vs Airdrie Montrose vs Arbroath Stenhousemuir vs Brechin Stranraer vs Raith Rovers League 2 Annan vs Elgin Berwick vs Stirling Albion Clyde vs Cowdenbeath Edinburgh City vs Albion Rovers Peterhead vs Queen's Park
  2. Walking Down The Halbeath Road

    John Watson versus Rangers/Celtic? My parents taped the Scotsport.
  3. The Pelé Podcast - Scott McLaughlin 2

    It's uncomfortable in the least to hear a guy openly talk about how players have been bullied, harassed and abused. It's worse that this is supposed to be considered "banter" or a process of "toughening up". Especially when he then sounds so shocked that someone would have mental health issues or take their own life. It can't be ignored or discounted that football and this shitey faux masculine pish that goes along with it, is a huge contributor to the poor mental health of so many young men. When someone goes out of their way to explain what a joker they are or how well liked they are, it usually screams of insecurity. I'm sorry that McLaughlin was brought up in a system where being "weak" was such a crime and that bullying was considered part of the process and a positive thing. Hearing about the way he and his teammates acted made me cringe and I felt he came off terribly. Was still an entertaining listen but I've usually found myself liking the players after the episodes and that certainly wasn't the case this time around.

  6. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    This is a stunning level of whataboutery. I have never in my life racially abused a player, not that it has anything to do with the criticism being levelled at Raith Rovers/Fife Free Press. Keep going with the "real names" chat though, m8. It's not creepy in the slightest.
  7. League Cup 2018/19 Group F

    So if Annan shock Livingston on Saturday and Berwick and Airdrie draw then Annan are through to the next round as group winners? With the great goal difference though, just the win should do it though.
  8. Hibernian European Tour 2018/2019

    If McGinn played in this tie or the next one, do the new rules allow him to play for Celtic in the CL?
  9. It's a diddy cup for you because you're set in your ways and are too thick to understand the very simple format.
  10. Walking Down The Halbeath Road

    Roast pork with apple sauce and potatoes, and rather hilariously got halfway through and mistook the pile of apple sauce for a kind of mushy potato and scooped it up and ate it in a oner hahahahahaha LOL. Who plays the apple sauce in the movie version?
  11. Walking Down The Halbeath Road

    What did everyone have for lunch? I considered a wee Subway but decided to just have a pasta and chicken meal from Sainsbury's.
  12. The Falkirk FC Thread

    It's so much better than the previous format I can only assume its detractors are old fashioned bores or complete morons.

  14. Walking Down The Halbeath Road

    Was hoping Hippo would make a comical dive and then stand up and shrug to the Main Stand and everyone could have had a chuckle as we welcome our new saviour.
  15. Walking Down The Halbeath Road

    Baracus, stop biting mate FFS. They're not even having to work had for it.
  16. Rangers 2018/19 European Extravaganza!

    They've went through, which means they pass the very low bar of last season. Imagine Gerrard's more than slightly concerned about how just how far away the current squad is though.
  17. The Falkirk FC Thread

    Sorry to hear about David Hagen. That's a horrible disease. He played in the 97 Cup Final, yes?
  18. League Cup 2018/19 Group G

    That Motherwell programme is absolutely sexual. Their media/marketing/whatever team is superb.
  19. League Cup 2018/19 Group F

    The fucking state of this. So stuck in the past it hurts.
  20. League Cup Group D

    Gasping for a game but alas I won't make it tonight to EEP. A little bit tempted by Stirling vs Brechin but think I'll just head back to the flat and save some pennies.
  21. League Cup Group C

    Spot the Tory
  22. League Cup 18/19 Group A

    Yup, it's always a bonus when lower league clubs provide the service but something short and snappy is more effective IMO. Dunfermline do a fantastic job with social media etc but even then there are things to nitpick, i.e. always including the kick off in the highlights package...
  23. League Cup 18/19 Group A

    That's still waaaaaay too long. Unless it's been an absolute rip-snorter of a match, five minutes tops should be fine for most teams.
