  1. If they play for the senior side they aren't allowed to play for the B side in the same window is my understanding. Given the lowland league was over it was irrelevant
  2. Doesn't Hester have off field issues still surrounding him also? Could be signing a player you never get to see play. Of course that is the case for any player as they might get a bad injury for example.
  3. Think it shows how close this league has been in the most that until last week Rob Roy were in relegation danger and could finish the season as high as 6th
  4. I think Glencairn have to win on Saturday to have any chance of staying up. They are more than capable of winning on Saturday but my opinion is they will have to and then hope Glenafton don't pick up 10 points from their remaining fixtures.
  5. No surprises at all in the released list. Including that we're still talking to Robbie Crawford
  6. Finn Russell, behave.
  7. That's a mighty fine ITT victory for Yates. He has been saying that bianchi TT bike is a major help to him. Interesting when dumoulin and Roglic were smashing the peloton in time trials they were using the same brand. I know the top time triallists maybe aren't there but the improvement from Yates in a short period of time is something.
  8. Presumably sky's coverage is used in the US ordinarily that's why they have had Andretti and Danica Patrick involved?
  9. I don't think the title will be the be all and end all next season. I think a higher league finish and a cup run will be the aims next season. It looks like we'll be having a fairly substantial clear out of squad players at the end of the season so we need to improve the quality of who we bring in as, as I said earlier, our squad depth is what has really killed us. Barring central midfield we need strengthening in every department.
  10. Agreed that it's the best GT. Few flat stages middle of the race but can the pure sprinters get there? Blockhaus finish a massive time limit barrier to them. Also Ewen is nailed on for the tour so wouldn't expect him to finish the giro.
  11. Sadly the video when the players return to the pitch after ht there is very clear sectarian abuse directed at Foster. The culprit(s) are not visible in the footage but they have rightly been called out by the vast majority of jags fans.
  12. I would like to have seen how he preformed against djokovic on the clay. Just to see how close to his best he might have been
  13. I think it's been long decided who is and isn't staying by the manager, at least who he wants to stay. I think the one player there's some doubt over is Hendrie who may choose to go somewhere he's likely to be first choice/more money. I think of the out of contract players only Crawford is likely to be offered a contract apart from Hendrie as he's a very McCall type player plus he has a love of playing central midfielders out wide.
  14. Andy withdraws from Madrid feeling unwell.
  15. Rather lazily I see Kevin Thomson is being linked today
  16. Our squad is so weak. Yes we have a decent 12/13 players who are more than capable of doing well at this level but once you get past them we struggle big style. Particularly in the attacking third. Graham is good but looks worn out, Jak runs about and creates but doesn't really possess a goal threat and the less said about alegria the better quite frankly.
  17. So the giro starts on Friday. Would have to say Carapaz is a clear favourite on paper and although a strong squad far from Ineos A team with no Ganna, de Plus, Kwiatkowski , TGH and others. EF have a good looking squad with Carthy and Chaves and Astana with Nibali and Lopez. After that Almeida has looked good but not a great team behind him then VdP who can do anything and Bilbao who showed up well last year and Dumoulin who is still trying to get back to near the level he once was. Simon Yates leading up bike exchange who arguably are sending their best squad in years. Amongst the quicks, Cav (meaning he's unlikely to go to the tour) with a formidable lead out, demare, gaviria, Ewen and Nizzolo. All in 3+ weeks of terrific racing to look forward to.
  18. Ok we'll agree to disagree. I would also add Connor Sammon to the mix of jobbers. And before anyone jumps in with the 6 months where he scored a load at killie, anyone would have with Eremenko (who was a player) laying on countless chances per match for them. Look at his record elsewhere.
  19. So good at Raith Rovers he was in a team relegated by Brechin and not a stand out in a honking Hamilton team.
  20. There's a reason she hasn't had a home event and it's nothing to do with money or success. Boxing events are de facto banned in Ireland ever since someone was killed at a weigh in with it being suspected it was beef between two rival Irish crime clans. One of them was allegedly involving Daniel Kinahan (remember him?)
  21. A jobber for me is someone who is routinely not very good at multiple clubs but always seems to be at a decent level. See Ross Callachan, Martin Woods, David Bates as examples.
  22. Scoring a goal might be difficult for us given our 'strike force' will be jakubiak and Alegria who have a combined 0 goals between them in thistle colours from a combined 18 appearances.
  23. The most interesting thing in the interview with Key I thought was the indication that Joe Clarke was likely going to be selected for the test squad. Quite a vagabond group they're compiling with him and Tommy Robinson
