  1. Next Permanent Kilmarnock Manager

    No, but it was the first thing that came to mind in terms of short-lived managerial appointments. Thought of mentioning Cathro too tbh but that doesn't quite seem apt.
  2. Next Permanent Kilmarnock Manager

    Getting a first managerial gig at a top flight level club with solid foundations and great support from boardroom level would be pretty attractive to most aspiring managers, imo. You could go chasing money/a higher profile start elsewhere but then in all likelihood end up having a stint akin to Frank De Boer's few weeks at Palace.
  3. Football Manager 2019

    Bought the bullet and got this the other week after skipping fm 2018. First season went really well, managed to get promoted at the first time of asking with Thistle purely through i) Coulibaly not reflecting his real life performances for Thistle and bagging a handy amount of goals in the game, and ii) managing to get a solid enough back 4 including an excellent Italian centre half that we could shitfest our way to either a 0-0 draw away or sneaking 1-0/2-0 wins. Lawrence Shankland is out of contract and willing to talk to me but the compensation is £700k or so. Praying I can get Ayr to take a nominal deal before someone else snaps him up. Have already agreed a deal with Ayr to sign up Liam Smith for about £40k or so purely on the strength of him being highly recommended by the scouts, seems like a no brainer too going by the stats. Freed up most of the squad, got £16k per week free in the wage budget (and counting!) but hardly anyone under contract that I've any confidence in for next season. Signed Gregory Tade who, while generally quite meh, bagged a double in a Scottish Cup win over Hibs that immediately repaid his signing. Great lad. I have a feeling I've got one of the shittest Brexit's possible; £8k a week for first team regulars, £3k a week for youngsters, no idea if it's the same as FM 2017 in that you can get work permits if players have a high enough PA either. tbh I'll keep plugging away - I have a bit of a feeling that, if I'm judicious with my transfers it'll be possible to bitchslap the AI in the transfer market and laugh as they sign utter shite for their first team while I'm busy grabbing the best value possible.
  4. Nutmeg

    a shot through the keepers legs is a nutmeg too imo Or is that more specifically a goalkeeper getting pegged (ohmatron.jpg.exe)
  5. Partick Thistle 2019/20 thread

    may be wrong but did Tidser not flop a bit when he was in the top flight (think he was at County but got punted?) Might put clubs at that level off going for him. edit: ah, he was on loan at County after a quick check.
  6. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    This in spades. It's in the UK govt's interest to create as much uncertainty as possible with regards to indy. Refusing any negotiations prior to a referendum result fits this.

  9. When will indyref2 happen?

    I might be going mental/the answer is blindingly obvious and I'm missing it, but is it not more of a question of spending priorities in England and the rest of the UK than any notion of us being subsidy junkies etc. etc.? Had a quick look at the comments, stopped because it's just too depressing seeing people's knee jerk reaction darn sarf is "let's make Scotland as poor and miserable at the rest of us" rather than "how can we go about increasing our own spending per head to similar levels".
  10. Game of Thrones

    rumour goes that most of the cast were told 1-to-1 beforehand whenever they were getting killed off but that was the first time Varys found out he was getting the chop, so he was a bit pissed/upset at finding out during a group reading.

  12. St Mirren vs Dundee United

    Said out loud (well, under my breath) "fucked it" watching the BT sport stream when Safranko stuttered his run up, hate it when players f**k about prior to taking a pen. Wasn't expecting every single Utd pen to get saved by the end of the shootout though Enjoy your night, Buddies.
  13. Can I just confirm for the sake of my own sanity that I saw Ryan Edwards score an opener in a Scottish Cup final?

  15. Kilmarnock v Sevco 5088

    the truth barely gets in the way of Sky News style headlines for what passes for real news, I'm happy to let it slide *partridge voice* for the purposes of the joke.
