  1. Will clibs that go bust be allowed to respawn under a new climpany?
  2. You've missed out the fairly important part where the original vote went in Thistle's favour and when that wasn't the desired outcome it there were suddenly misunderstandings from certain boards and a second vote proposed. It was the second vote that we, quite rightly, tried to block. Same shit, different fannies in charge.
  3. Yes. Being one of the mug teams that tried to keep up with it, it's caused us significant ballache over the years to say the least.
  4. http:// https://www.scotsman.com/sport/football/rangers/craig-whyte-insists-rangers-are-a-new-club-as-he-slams-sir-david-murray-hits-out-at-ebt-scheme-and-makes-celtic-claim-1-5091237 Whyte also insisted that Rangers are a new club. In response to the question, "One emotionally very, very divisive issue which, to this day, divides Scottish football - are Rangers a new club? What's your view?" he replied: "Yes, obviously they are." That should cause a few cranial detachments.
  5. The Clyde is tidal up to the tidal weir at Glasgow green.
  6. It came back briefly then disappeared again. A familiar story today.
  7. First time I’ve come across this thread, some great stuff. Surprised there’s been no Mitchell Library yet, unless I’ve missed it... Also the city chambers which if you ever have a spare 10 minutes when you are passing is worth looking into just to see the marble stair case Quite an interest in brutalist and modernism styles and I think the former BOAC office building on Buchanan Street is a cracking wee example in the context of where it sits within its surroundings. Love the copper cladding.
  8. The abuse towards Goodwillie was most definitely ramped up due to how utterly rattled he got the last time he played at Firhill.
  9. Dennis Bergkamp. Pure class. http://
  10. Was at the game with a Watford supporting mate, thought they were unlucky with the obvious first half chances before pretty much chucking two into their own net then being blown away in the second half. As a neutral found the whole atmosphere quite weird for a cup final though. Watford fans were great at waving their flags and I’m sure it looked good on tv, but at times you could actually hear the sound of thousands of shitey plastic flags being waved because there was no singing or noise going on along with it. Similarly, the Man City fans sat on their hands most of the time other than goals scored and even then they seemed subdued after the 3rd. Was verging on polite applause at the other goals. On the fans in their seat chat, I couldn’t believe how few people were back out for the start of the second half, and I don’t just mean in the hospitality level. Folk just seem to want to skelp a £6 pint of Bud (or two if possible) and get a pish in before coming back out to watch the game. Mental. Have attached a photo taken a minute or so after 2nd half KO, everyc*nt was at the bar or in the pisser, you can see the amount of empty seats as the game is going on
  11. The interview I saw with Wright doesn't mention anything about it not being a deal he wanted to do, only that the opportunity to get a replacement in allowed it to happen. So they were willing to do it if a replacement was available. If it's the case that the replacement is seen as a bench filler then it doesn't sit with any suggestion of not being willing to let him go or that his place in the squad was anything other than the same. If he's got a year on his contract then I guess we'll see how far this heavy heart sentiment extends in the summer. Personally I can't see him being assured as a regular at Saints again and he'll be off to somewhere with that on offer.
  12. So there's plenty to suggest he'll be surplus to requirements for a number of reasons. Of course they willingly did the deal. If they weren't willing, it wouldn't have happened. If the view on Keown above is the official one from Saints, it doesn't say much for Anderson's value to their squad that he can be replaced so effortlessly with anyone claiming to be a defender. Stick on mutual agreement in the summer.
  13. If being replaced on the STJ bench by someone who wouldn’t be fussed about sitting there because he was such a tit at his parent club he’d do anything to get away doesn’t ring home about his place in their squad, then by all means he should go back and crack on.
  14. Aye, but given you’ve willingly chosen to put Keown on your bench ahead of him just now, the penny will eventually drop that he’s better off away from the farm. Mutual agreement incoming...
  15. This hypothetical situation assumes that McMillan will be available as well.
  16. What is Anderson's contract situ at St Johnstone? Is he ever likely to be a regular starter again at that level? If there's an option for a permanent move, going into next season with him, O'Ware and McMillan as our central defence options, I'd be pretty content with that.
  17. So claiming the dregs of an own goal is worth a sullen/giruy celebration? [emoji23] I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt for putting pressure on the defender, however he’s a terrible footballer (I’m not sure which position he thinks he’s good at) who’s welcome to leave anytime he likes. His failure to control and finish an absolute gift from Fitzpatrick not long after his luckily deflected goal says enough about his contribution to date.
  18. Took almost a full week for the Ibrox thieving tramps to pipe up in this thread. It's almost as if they are embarrassed ... almost
  19. I like the idea of one having some nod to Save the Jags. In case anyone's forgotten, it's that time the fans rallied round and saved our club instead of letting it die.
  20. Do like the black top but didn't we have this template in white as a training top last year?
  21. Our current arrangement is likely on a license type basis where we are granted use at specific times and probably pay an element of service charge proportionate to the use within our costs. Assuming we are taking the headline lease and it allows then there should be nothing stopping us putting similar deals in place to generate revenue. I'm sure whichever local authority it ends up in will want some community use from it. Celtic have/had a deal in place with East Dunbartonshire at Lennoxtown although I'm sure that was fairly limited and under scrutiny at one point towards it's value for public money.
  22. No idea, do we have a lease there or just rent the facility as required? Would have thought Glasgow Uni retain the headline use over their facility.
  23. Most commercial/leisure leases tend to be on an FRI (Full Repairing & Insuring) basis.
  24. Not so much specific songs but my thoughts on busking in general, with particular reference to Buchanan and Argyle Streets... Anyone wishing to play the bagpipes in public should have to pass a proficiency test first imo. Some of the dirge on Buchanan Street is utter noise pollution. Some of them are actually decent singers but this new trend of mumbling the ends of lines or deliberately mispronouncing words to suit stupid, put on inflictions in their singing is irritating in the extreme. The blame for this lies squarely with pish like Bastille and the 1975 etc. If they must be allowed to use amps, they should at least be half decent and not shite tin can efforts, they're not exactly expensive ffs. Or at least learn that sometimes lower volume can give a better sound. Edit to add: Itzdrk's Hallelujah guy on Buchanan Street is a prime culprit for the voice thing, particularly with that song.
