  1. Squad face March

    The key point underlying this argument is not whether artificial pitches can cause/aggravate injuries, nor is it that doctors may advise against playing on them, it is that players are CHOOSING not to play for Scotland. Finn Russell played rugby against England with a fractured cheek. Do you not think doctor's would advise against that? Or that his club wouldn't have preferred he missed the game for fear of making the injury worse? If a player is fit enough to play on grass then they are fit enough to play on an artificial surface, and it is only their choice that dictates whether they will or not. Just as Steven MacLean now chooses to play on them. Unfortunately, Alex McLeish is just another in a line of Scotland managers who let players off too easily with withdrawals for inadequate reasons.

    That was fucking brilliant. Obviously the win would have been special but I don't care much after that second half performance. At half time I'm sure every Scotland fan, like me, was discussing how many points England were going to score. At that stage you'd have taken any "respectable" scoreline so to quibble over not winning is just daft.
  3. Still Game & Best Bits

    It wasn't bad in an awful slapstick/lone wolf kind of way, but the whole episode just felt kind of drawn out and dull. Even the payoff of Tam's return with the insurance money was very underwhelming.

  5. Rugby - Union And League

    The starting line up doesn't look too bad considering the number of injuries we have. Relieved to see that Maitland is back and playing at fullback, and that Sam Johnson is back in ahead of Horne. Jonny Gray can have no complaints about being dropped to the bench but Toolis offers nothing. Skinner & Watson starting is great but I can't understand why we've dropped Strauss (who's been decent) for Bradbury (who's been largely annoymous). We're going to get hammered anyway...
  6. Clyde Vs Stirling Albion

    Yes, Lang is still suspended but so is Darren Smith for Stirling, and he's probably a far bigger loss for them than Lang is for us. Home to Stirling then Elgin on Tuesday with both very winnable games. Even if the title chase is over I'd want 6 points (minimum 4) to lift everyone again before a slump in form becomes a concern.
  7. Squad face March

    Steven Fletcher is "managing an injury", has "ongoing issues that him and the club feel need to be addressed" and of course " the plastic pitch in Kazakhstan wouldn't have helped". Basically, throw enough meaningless phrases out there and hope something sticks. I was sorry Fletcher wasn't in the squad after playing very well against Israel, and he is the ideal kind of striker for our other attacking players to play off, but if he plays 84 minutes away to Bolton the night the squad is announced don't claim he's been omitted due to injury. Quite happy for him never to get a call up again, but I doubt McLeish is strong enough to do that. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/47551253
  8. FIFA 19

    I can't stand Alonso's card. I just find him kind of clunky and ineffective. Filipe Luis's RTTF card plays miles better. Entered my first Weekend League in about 2 months. Played 8 games on Friday, winning 6, and never went back to it. Just can't be bothered with it.
  9. I think Albion Rover’s being awarded a 3-0 victory is unfortunate for Berwick, but not unfair as such, as there is no other way around it. We denied Rovers the chance to play us without a striker (although Fitzpatrick is barely a recognised striker himself, but was obviously preferred to the other options). However, if we replayed the game (especially with Goodwillie fit and available now) we could beat them by a larger margin and their goal difference would be harmed by the replay which would be unfair on Rovers. Similarly, you would have to make us replay Queen’s Park who could potentially lose the point they originally gained from that match. Incidentally, I voted in DB’s poll that you should not keep Harvey for the rest of the season. Obviously I don’t see much of Berwick but you don’t seem to have improved under him and, though the original mess of the season may not be his fault, the fact a truly woeful Rover’s side could catch you says it all. I know that there may not be anyone obvious who could come in as manager, but I don't see how it could make things much worse either.
  10. Elgin City vs Clyde FC

    Sadly predictable after this morning's news
  11. Rugby - Union And League

    Disappointing but you can't fault the effort in the second half. With lots of players playing out of position it made it harder.
  12. Rugby - Union And League

    Fucking injuries. Graham was playing well too.
  13. Rugby - Union And League

    Brilliant try. Need to push on now though.
  14. Rugby - Union And League

    The problem is Scotland have never known how to play the ref. Wales and Ireland are experts at it. Figure out what the ref is letting you away with and milk it throughout a whole game. We play as though every referee is the same, when other countries adapt knowing in advance how the referee will manage the game. As mentioned above, Glasgow are exactly the same.
  15. Rugby - Union And League

    Why do we throw to the back of the lineout at important times so often? I'd be interested to see stats on how (un)successful we actually are at it.
