  1. Left education around 10 years ago due to a mixture of poor mental health & alcoholism, stemming from issues in my younger years. I went from job to job, with no real career path. I’ve managed to fix myself during that time and decided to give education another go. Today, I’ve been offered a job placement as part of my uni course with the view of being kept on full time. Feels good.
  2. I feel sorry for some of them…a little bit. You honestly think wossi wouldn’t rather be sitting on his own show, relaxing, interviewing heavyweight boxers on his couch rather than clapping along to Christopher Dean singing Mr. Brightside in a dickhead costume from the Chinese Disney world?
  3. Have a look at the comments under any NCA post.
  4. Naturally disappointing to see a young talent like him leave. From a progression perspective, this could be a good move for him. If he received the same amount of playing time I’m the 2nd half of the season as he did in the first, he could quickly stagnate. It’s probably the best time to sell. I predict that Rangers will reinvest part of the fee into a position where they anticipate losing a first team player in the summer. It’s almost inevitable regardless of qualification to the group stages of the Champions League.
  5. Desperate for a couple of strikers for Dundee Utd after not being able to get a work permit for a Colombian loanee from season 1. Preferably under 26
  6. If you want to progress to the next round, obviously Borrusia Dortmund isn’t the draw any rational Rangers fan wanted. Saying that, there are some positives. This year is shaping up to be the closest league campaign in over a decade after Celtic’s dominance and Rangers having it all but wrapped up this time last season.Both top 2 teams with relatively new managers, frailties in defence & in squad depth. In a season where there’s so many variables for who will win the league, (COVID being an unwelcome one), the one certainty is that the league champions gain automatic entry to the Champions League group stages. If that is Rangers, it’s almost certain that they will be 4th seeds or 3rd at best. Inevitably, you’re going to draw at least 1 team the size and quality of Dortmund in the group. This tie is almost a free hit for Rangers. They’ll be able to get a taste of a cracking atmosphere both home & away (restrictions permitting). It’s a great prelude to what Rangers will hope to be a part of next year.
  7. Perhaps not a trope but I fucking hate gimmick PPV’s like Hell In A Cell & TLC
  8. Is anyone still having problems with 1v1's or strikers generally being unable to score goals?
  9. Love this thread every year. Currently doing a St. Mirren game wherein Ive kept Lewis Morgan and secured him until 2022. Long term is that I will sell him but apart from a %15 of whatever he goes for goes to the player, it'll be a nice fee. The problem is that I don't play with wingers, so he's having to settle as either an attacking midfielder or a wing back. The signings i've made have broadly been successful. Im sitting 4th after 28 games in the SPL after my league winning season in the 1st year. Kalvin Phillips became available on the cheap and I pounced. Gavin Reilly is a goalscoring machine for me also.
  10. Great spot there with the 'desperate for a tag' thing, but Uso swiped Jason Jordan off the apron! genuine Uso heat there.
  11. I guess we won't know until a poll asking if an independence referendum within the next 2 years would be more favourable then. When I seen the poll my honest interpretation of it was 'do we want one or not'.
  12. "I am determined that Scotland will have the ability to reconsider the question of independence and to do so before the UK leaves the EU - if that is necessary to protect our country's interests." Nicola Sturgeon Article 50 is to be triggered in March of 2017.
  13. Thats the kind of shouting down I was talking about right there, though not directed at me. The 2016 manifesto? I think we could nitpick at parts of the SNP (or any political party) manifesto that is and isn't being implemented all day back and forth though, given Scotland's education rating is the worst in history despite a pledge to invest and improve every child in the countries education regardless of class. Further back, in 2015, we were told about an improvement in transport and shortly after Abellio got the contract for Scotlands Railway network (despite being rated one of the lowest performing in Europe), we continue to see Abellio underperforming. Again, we could go back and forth about contents of any political party not sticking to pledges. But cherry picking the bits that suit the First Minister is exactly what I mean when I said that she wants a referendum to suit her own Independence dream. For the record I do like Nicola Sturgeon as a First Minister and overall The SNP have done a good job in keeping a balance for Scots. Its just this particular issue I have my back up about! A vote for the SNP isn't a vote for Scottish independence.
  14. I do agree with you on using the EU position as ammunition to keep Scotland from voting to leave the UK, however David Cameron Pledged to have an in/out referendum back in 2013, long before the Scottish IndyRef.
  15. Usually I refrain from posting on any politics threads on here due to being shot down, but here goes. I think its clear that Nicola Sturgeon is using the Brexit Vote as political gain for her own independence dream. Our first minister continually tells us that Scotland voted to remain in the EU. 62% of Scotland voted to remain, leaving 38% voting to leave the EU. But isn't it interesting that the latest BMG poll shows that similar number of 61.5% do not want a re-run of a Scottish Independence referendum yet it continues to be driven by her. Not only that, but our First Minister going to England to campaign to vote to stay within the EU has to legitimise her acceptance that it was a UK wide vote.
  16. If we're all being honest, Hibs and Falkirk probably both deserve to go up.
  17. thereisalight, given the fact that this made national press on the day of the disaster, the police and governing bodies used national press to label the fans as the culprits of the disaster, do you not think its apt to have the campaign as one in the national press? The football club, and its supporters naturally gave support to the families, which as a result will come up on TV screens because of the scale of LFC and the league they play in. Although I do understand why you might think the way you do, when you take into account these things above and the fact that none of the victims families are likely to pursue a job on TV after all of this, I would be sure this was all done for the correct reasons. If a family member of mine died at a football match in these circumstances, and the evidence that was shown in the likes of Anne Williams and Margaret Aspinal's cases, and 15 year old boy's dead bodies were being tested for alcohol in their bloodstream, when the Sun newspaper and Kelvin Mackenzie accused fans of pickpocketing victims and urinating on emergency services that were trying to help and when there was a clear cover up, I'd be looking at getting national recognition for the injustice that occurred on that day. It isn't just a victory for these families either, I think its much more than that.
