  1. It's going to be disappointing when it turns out that at least half the attendance is actually @RandomGuy. reserving seats for himself in error under his season ticket.
  2. It's the World Economic Forum in Davos this week. Is this the one where they burn a big wooden bird? ANyway, here's noted commentator and journalist Sophie Cocococoran giving her view Where did all these weird 20 year old University Tories come from? Odd. A hilariously stupid piece, I love it.
  3. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-61549385 Monkeypox case confirmed in Scotland.
  4. Devine and Duffy are available again. I'd go to a back four of Carson, Broadfoot, Devine and Deas. For all that our set up was terrible on Friday, the first goal came from Rooney out jumping and muscling Harper, which was always a big risk. Deas brings more of a physical presence to that fight. In the middle, ovbviously move Welsh back there. McAlear will start - should we have them as a '2' in a 4-2-3-1 or should we bring Allardice back to start? He was impressive coming on but will he have the sharpness for a start? In terms of attacking midfielders, I think Chalmers will get the nod. Samuels played well coming on and offered us something different up front, will he got alongside Mckay up front or play deeper as part of a '3'?
  5. I think we've sold around 2000 tickets. Biggest away support we've had for many years. Only derby matches and cup finals/semi-finals compare.
  6. "We've had sex with a load of men at a gay fetish party by mistake!"
  7. Anyone who has had contact with a monkeypox case has been advised to isolate for 21 days.
  8. Michel Goya blogpost about the progress of the war. He used to do these as Twitter threads but this one seems to be a blogpost. https://lavoiedelepee.blogspot.com/2022/05/point-de-situation-des-operations-en_21.html
  9. There seem to be vaccines and treatments available. You can also get reliable PCR tests to check for infection. All sounds great! https://www.science.org/content/article/monkeypox-outbreak-questions-intensify-cases-soar
  10. Hello, it is me, a very smart academic. Not for me to be taken in by social media groupthink and cultural memes. Behold my Wisdom
  11. Russian troops are attacking Severodonetsk in significant numbers, they have also destroyed the main bridge out of the city, it was previously destroyed in 2014 and rebuilt. Seems like this is the main battle now.
  12. Monkeypox: Time to worry or one to ignore? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-61524508 To be honest, BBC I think you can be somewhere in between. I’d rather we didn’t ignore it but I can’t say I’m that worried about the old monkey pox. I’m sure there was actually an outbreak of monkey pox in Wales during Covid, I remember it being on the news.
  13. I saw a woman today wearing a face mask over a burqa. This was outside as well. I should really write an article for the Daily Express about it or something like that.

  15. I did not realise that. I still don’t think playing him there in a game like this was a wise move.
  16. I still can’t quite believe we took our captain and probably most consistent midfielder and played him in central defence, a position I don’t think he’s ever played before, in our biggest game of the season so far. We also started a front two who we hadn’t played together before and gave a teenager his second start in central midfield. None of these decisions were forced by the injuries and suspensions. Clearly Dodds wanted to match up St Johnstone and make it tight, it clearly didn’t work in the slightest. Fair play to Dodds for admitting his mistake post match.
  17. We did improve in the second half, even in the early stages you could see that we were pushing up more and that the ball was being held up when it got to McKay and Samuels more than in the first half. Our midfield also settled more. We were still shaky at the back though and St Johnstone had a lot of chances, that’s fair to say. We got lucky that they were so profligate. I doubt we’d have been pushed back as much as we were if we’d played a more normal Formation in the first half - we couldn’t get the ball out, the number of times we were under pressure in our own final third was ridiculous. We clearly aren’t going to do that in Perth. It will be a very different game, still hard for us to come out on top but we’ve given ourselves a chance. Are Devine and Duffy back From suspension for Monday?
