    I don’t give two hoots if ‘the kids’ today use phrases or sayings that only they use, or understand, but the one thing that I really have trouble accepting is this - in my day, if someone was classed as a ‘celebrity’, it was generally because whatever their talent or skill was, it had taken them into the public conciousness. Be it singing, playing an instrument, acting, comedy, whatever. I don’t think I will ever, ever, get my head around someone being ‘a celebrity’ because they are an ‘influencer’. Fashion advice and make-up tips online? Millions of followers? 

    Get yer’sel tae’ fcuk…

    Just my opinion, as an auld miserable barsteward… 

    To be fair, the BBC also has 'celebrity' editions of game shows which are basically a round up of anyone in the canteen.

    While it shouldn't happen, it's understandable why they don't. 

    All the relevant cameras are on the near side (relative to the corner being taken), which means their vertical field of view takes in more of the far side. 

    The opposite happened in Italy earlier this season where a goal was incorrectly chalked-off for offside because none of the camera angles used by VAR showed the last defender who was playing the attacker onside:


    They either need another goal-line camera on the far side, or more "tactical" cameras that take in the full width of the pitch.

    That example is amazing,... we're going to try to judge offside without knowing where the players are!

    They said VAR didn’t so went with the linesman’s decision. 

    Yeah, itv said, but they also have a presenter bragging about not knowing the offside rule. I can't see how Var can be expected to operate without a camera covering that, tbh.

    One for those who know Glasgow well. Years ago 1986 I visited Glasgow with friends to watch The Jesus and Mary Chain at 'the Barrows' we had a wander around the shops and on Buchannan Street and next to the comic book shop Forbidden Fruit there was a record shop. I don't know if my memory is playing tricks on me but I remember going downstairs and the place was like anarchist punk heaven. Anyone remember the name of the shop?

    Another loss in Glasgow was the American Clothing Store on Bath Street which changed name during the 90's to Flip, I think they moved elsewhere in the city before finally disappearing. There was one on the South Bridge Edinburgh as well. Brilliant for t-shirts, you could buy 4 plain black t-shirts for £20.

    There was also the Virginia Galleries which was great for small shops selling 2nd hand stuff and finding something unique, popular with students.

    That would have been RAT Records (Records And Things). Actually they moved up there from the Virginia Galleries.

  5. We were laughing at the story about the woman at the fudge shop because the same stall shows up at music festivals, even after 3 days wandering round in the sun with overpriced beer, I still give them a wary knowing look.

    I was not so streetwise with the olive vendor in the shopping centre yesterday.

    Did not know Earl the pearl was still at it. Delightful viewing. The p***k’s p***k. 

    I think that fans choice match was both sets of fans trying to mess with the opposition .
