  1. The Campbeltown Loch went to the whisky warehouse in the sky last night. Terrific dram for the price but good luck finding it (springbank). To make up for this, I've opened two new bottles tonight - Glen Scotia 15yo and Fettercairn warehouse batch no 2. Sometimes it's OK to enjoy life a bit eh.
  2. It's a last minute decision for me. Have been planning it but am helping my sister move this weekend so I had to be sure I could work around that. It's a particularly acute issue for County's away support which is mostly central-belt based. Dundee are doing the same thing to Partick fans on Saturday but at least the majority of them presumably can get to Firhill to collect a ticket. I'm not going from Larbert to Dingwall to get a ticket for a game in Edinburgh.
  3. Was looking forward to this but with no facility to buy or collect tickets on Saturday it looks unlikely that I'll be able to go. How hard is it to have e-tickets? Stenhousemuir and Alloa can do it FFS.
  4. Murray's new deal has a "homework clause". Real good sign when your supposedly franchise QB needs to be told to watch film.
  5. Count me amongst the Murray skeptics.
  6. Bit harsh on County I think, we had several more gears there if needed.
  7. Did anyone try for Munich tickets? I was 537,000th in the Q so gave up pretty quick. Couldn't have been any faster on the button either. Industrial-scale ticket scalping as usual.
  8. Ours just got released now. I'm sure someone will be along with a photo imminently. The home one is... different
  9. I was at an NFL game in Oakland California about 3 years ago and at the train station after the game I saw a young guy wearing a "Wildcats" hoodie. I say to him "that's a strange coincidence, I used to play for a team in Scotland called the Wildcats, where are your ones based?" It was the same team.
  10. Really well actually (I've done a load of them with V.Aye.R). I personally prefer the face to face but the virtual is decent. Only slight problem is the amount of losers on the call who think they know more than the experts but they're easy to mute.
  11. I have tickets for Dublin, Rome and Zurich. Plus whatever UK shows he does.
  12. I don't think £45 for access to tasting drams that you couldn't sniff any other time is too much personally. Especially with the tenner off a bottle. Done a few of these festivals and they are always brilliant.
  13. Saw a Pine Marten the other day at dawn. It spent a few seconds sniffing around the green house then bolted away under a hedge. Apparently rare to see them so was quite chuffed. Knew it wasn't a weasel etc because it was bloody huge.
  14. 1. Stuttgart 2. AC Milan 3. Valencia 4. Bordeaux 5. Porto Honourable mentions for Fiorentina, Ajax, Dortmund, Galatasaray Top 5 dislike: 1. Man City 2. Real Madrid 3. Juventus 4. PSG 5. Bayern
  15. I appreciate I gave no actually useful info there. It's good value imo. Not hugely different from other 12yo speysiders but a really good example of the genre. A bottle most folk probably won't have tried and a really nice dram.
  16. Is the problem folk have with it the entire concept of additional intervention, or is it a worry that it won't be used sensibly/correctly/consistently? If it is the latter, it seems daft to not want to proceed with a potentially useful tool out of a fear of the tool not being used correctly. Seems a good idea to me but I'm clearly missing something based on the reaction of everyone else.
  17. So long as the sporting integrity of the title romp is protected over the genuinely competitive European battle. That's definitely the best way to prioritise any fixture discrepancies.
  18. Ross County have been in the top 6 for 4 minutes all season.
  19. Mine is touching the excess flour on a roll. I'll always avoid a floury roll and get flourless ones. Can't explain it.
  20. Walked past the swatch shop this morning about 9.30 and the Q was insane. There's no way they'd have had enough of them for everyone. People are weird. The Q for breakfast at Dishoom was thankfully much more reasonable.
  21. She's started an Instagram account for a house that hasn't been built yet. Furthermore, she's called it "surname at the estate name", using my surname. We are not yet married. HELP
