  1. Bobby Linn is and always will be an Arbroath legend!
  2. Pretty gutted. To have followed these last few seasons has been an absolute pleasure, I don't know if I will ever see anything like this ever again! The squad is decent though and if it can stick together and add a few gems of signings like DC has a recent history of doing for us, then who knows, we might have a great chance of the playoffs again next season, but to see Gayfield absolutely hoaching, huge interest in the club not just locally, and with tons of new and older fans returning through the turnstile together - probably not seen since the McGrain days? They started my interest in the team, this team will be doing the same for hundreds of people too ; and even if this surge in gate numbers is temporary the money made from it is going towards the future of the team. Every single Arab or Dee I've met in recent years (after a drink) always admit they LOVE Arbroath too, and the thought of playing against Dundee again (and beating them!) along with a possible chance to win away at McDiarmid (hope ICT go up, tbh but think Saints will waltz it over two legs)is exciting enough. Another season in the Championship? f**k, Aye!
  3. A very good start from us (Arbroath) but never really troubled Ridgers (I've seen us put three past him before and him take banter in good spirit) barring that Low freekick. ICT look disjointed the times I've seen us play them, they finished a clear third not down to any proper real winning form, just the rest were all shite. Near the end though, I was happy to take a draw though and Gaston made 2 excellent saves to keep it a draw. Roll on Friday! Thinking extra time, penalties maybe? Anyhoos cannae wait and great going in to a final for both of us optimist about going through. Decent number of Arbroath fans and I thought they had a fair amount of noise on my shitty wee stream, great to hear Lichtie chants just on TV even.
  4. Sammy The Red is biling and calling the Alliance Party a smallnationalist party.
  5. From what I've seen SF - no doubt a very good and historic result for them. Similar to the SNP's win in 2007, it is a bit of a historic moment and tbh, if there is a new NI executive. DUP - some predictions on the radio earlier have them ending up 23-25 seats, and SF on 29. So, not the humping that some polls predicted (I'm sure I seen them on 13, 14, 16% in 2022 polls at one point) but they've definitely lost a lot of votes. Alliance - the 'big' winners of this election, looking like they'll double their seats! Massive and I'm sure they won councillors in areas in Derry, Fermanagh in the recent NI council elections and seem to be quite popular with younger/Reddit types (along with SF) Most of their vote is from liberal protestants, but they have a growing number of fans and voters from nationalist areas. A few more votes in Derry for them and a DUP-gained vote in Carrickfergus is probably good for any future form of northern Ireland. UUP - again, don't know enough ; but I think Mike Nisbet and Doug Beattie are decent guys and sadly it seems not to be clicking with unionism, as their vote just seems to get worse every election. Heard a bit of Jeffrey Donaldson blethering on about shared unionist candidates etc in areas where DUP/UUP battles are both losing, managed decline really, like the Scottish Lib Dems really. SDLP - seemed to gain those 2 lost Westminster seats to SF, and their excuse this time seems to be their vote has temporarily gone to SF for the historic moment of her potentially being FM. Don't think it is, tbh ; like the UUP their vote seems to slip every Stormont poll. Both seen as the softer version of SF/DUP ; a think a lot of young nationalists who aren't that fussed by a united Ireland are probably even going for Alliance or the Greens over them. TUV - I'm going to see if someone will take my punt of the TUV being the biggest unionist party in Ireland in 15 years. As the SDLP and UUP lose small n's and u's to the Alliance and Greens ; the TUV are gaining the disgruntled ex DUP vote in big numbers. They've got a chance of getting 3 MLAs ; they've only ever had one who looks a bit like a healthier-living Alan Brazil, a bit like Farage under UKIP? But a good 20-30% chunk of the DUP vote has gone to them!
  6. A guy I know quite well, is from a very nationalist area of Derry, although lives in Belfast (after a wee spell in Scotland)and is now both a GAA and Northern Irish fitba team (as his first Irish side! He supports both).
  7. NI, I hardly knew ye ; but Chris Donnelly now looks like a less glamorous Jim Cornett!
  8. Mary Lou looks like a character from Arthur. Wonder if a bookie will take my punt - TUV will be the biggest unionist party in Ireland by 2035?
  9. Interesting. I think the DUP will come second but if Alliance can do it, would be interesting and funny to see the William Orangeman types
  10. Is that possible? I thought the admin had to have a Nationalist/Unionist FM/dFM. Wonder if the DUP will even form part of the new executive? Seem to be bumping their gums about the EU protocol.
  11. Not even any radio coverage on Radio Jocko. Very little NI coverage too.
  12. Seeing the Tories getting scelped across Scotland will never get boring
