    Being quite an auld c**t I was there before a lot of the cliches started. You can see how one day somebody turned an old cliche round for a laugh, then next day everybody’s using it. So we get “on the front foot” and “defeat from the jaws of victory” which are a bit shit. I also hate “runs into traffic” and “we can kick on”. Then there’s all the misheard thicko player cliches like “we equipped ourselves well” when they heard somebody the week before saying “we acquitted ourselves well”.
  2. I thought it was Gerry Rafferty.
  3. Random Matches You Are Going To...

    Should’ve said, I would have told you to look out for Rab B. He’d be wearing a string vest.
  4. Arise Sir Kenny Dalglish

    Seem to remember another bit where Kenny walks past him in the street late at night, and goes “awright, wee man.”

    Thing is, we got him from you lot in 1986. Apparently he was born in Dingwall, although we always thought he was from Beauly. Played shinty as well as fitba.

    Just heard Herchie’s gone. R.I.P. big fella.
  8. ICTFC 18/19

    Sad indeed. R.I.P. big man.
  9. Where’d the welfare thread go?

    I’m sure the Fergie Park Faithful will happily buy the Shire players a few drinks before the game.
  10. Lowland League Catch Up

    Great stuff Michael.

    Get a room guys

    Plus his dad used to wind up the Caley fans.
  13. 3 of the shots are at Whitehill but no mention in the text. Makes a change from being described as an Edinburgh club I suppose. As one of the Guardian comments says, somebody's ramped up the clarity slider in Lightroom to make it look grim.
  14. Promotion / relegation

    Imagine the gruesome twosome arguing about the venue for match 17.
