  1. No worries, but you'll need to wait until I get back from Ibiza #calvinharrissons
  2. Not trying to be cheeky but I was actually referring to WI-FI boosters which are both inexpensive and efficient in my experience.
  3. This is desperately sad news. I saw the teenage Drew score Thirds last-ever goal at Boghead, watched him play against the Sons with Airdrie and Hearts and closely followed his career whilst getting to know him personally. One the hardest, most consistent and value for money Scottish players of the post-war era. He was a childhood pal and team-mate of Bobby Kerr who captained Sunderland to the 1973 FA Cup. A decent and very likeable guy taken too soon.
  4. Ahem.... this was raised with two Directors a month ago with a 'direction' to consider Argos literally up the road. It's disappointing to hear how an avoidable failure to act impacted last night. Point duly noted Pete and thanks for raising it.
  5. Colin Nish and John Dillon should not be compared with Kyle Hutton. Any weird hating came from Nish being gangly and awkward whilst JD's running gait always made him look short of pace. However, Nish's sublime lob of the Livi keeper from 40 yards and deft lay-offs and JD's almost faultless finishes from one-on-ones rather compensated. Conversely, to use your word, Hutton has always 'looked like a player' rather than actually being one, and he has lazily basked in his former Old Firm status. I doubt he'll trouble the Hall of Fame
  6. Let's not try to rewrite history here guys. Kyle Hutton was for the most part utter gash and it took him almost 100 games to find any sort of worthwhile form at Dumbarton - because the midfield has remained poor since he left shouldn't disguise the fact that it was also poor when he was in it.
  7. Very sad news indeed, and it has become a sobering month for Sons fans of a certain age with the loss firstly of Davie Wilson and now 'Casper', two members of the Sons 2nd Division Championship-winning team of 1972. For those of us who saw them this was the side which set the standard all subsequent Dumbarton teams have aspired to. In my opinion it is entirely fitting that the two players who have made the most appearances for the club, Johnny Graham (385) and Lawrie Williams (372), were the two Sons players of the modern era who should have gone on to play at a higher level, but it was our great good fortune that they did not. Johnny's passing makes his recent appearance at the 50th celebration dinner of the '72 team's achievement and the induction of himself and his team-mates as inaugural entrants to the Hall Of Fame all the more poignant.
  8. I hope you shaft the three of them.
  9. This. If it was so important then his captaincy last season left a lot to be desired, and from what I can gather things weren't too great off the pitch either and not just Traininggate. Sometimes a fresh start can be in the interest of both parties, and maybe the player himself would now be open to offers.
  10. Thanks for proving the very point I was making; politics, like life itself, is a constantly evolving business and anyone who clings to 'once in a generation ' headline is either misguided or a purblind fanatic, or both. Boris Johnson has this morning claimed that he intends to serve a THIRD term - will you be filing that for future reference ?
  11. As I recall there was the desperate cobbling together of the infamous 'Vow', allied to the No campaign's scaremongering over the EU acceding to a future membership application from an independent Scottish state. Then came Brexit and all bets were off; is it any wonder that any 'promise' was rendered as worthless as the 'Vow' ? And yet we are to believe that only the advocates of independence have shifted position ? Aye, right.
  12. I'm now getting 2/7 with an online bookie in Turkmenistan.
  13. Harry Broun, ex-Killie is my prediction.
  14. Looks like Layne is turning out again - if so I hope this is purely temporary.
  15. I can report that we have gone without Edam in Dumbarton for months now, both anecdotally and according to the Edamwatch website.
  16. 'Their station' - very good that
  17. On hearing this news I was wondering if there will be any sort of sizeable migration of more informed and reasonable people from the 'medieval' US states to more tolerant states. I would imagine that if that WAS to happen we could be right back almost to 1861-style polarisation, with everything that implies.
  18. Wallace had a groin twinge (cue wild celebrations in Methil), McKee has tweaked his hamstring and Lynch broke a bone in his foot on holiday, whilst stone-cold sober. All typical pre-season stuff. Apparently the trialist keeper may get ninety minutes tomorrow.
  19. I get the feeling now that if Johnson doubles down then never mind his Parliamentary 'colleagues', some of his erstwhile cheerleaders in the media may find a few tasty headlines behind the sofa cushions to hasten his departure. Even the Daily Express has its limits. If only Labour had someone like Andy Burnham as leader.....
  20. If we can follow that draw with Ayr with a win over the Braves tomorrow I'd expect our title odds to move to 4/9.
  21. Hmmmm.. surely with Wallace, Love and Byrne signed, if true this must be a jersey- filling exercise.
  22. She's the arsehole who was suspended by Sky for being secretly out on the razzle during lockdown.
  23. I read this article and it follows many of recent times in which McWhirter has sold his journalistic integrity to dance to the right-wing editorial tune of The Herald. His colleague Kevin McKenna meanwhile has the best job in Scotland; write basically the same two articles repeatedly thro the year on a 4/1 ratio. One is a condemnation of the SNP littered with references to 'elites' and cod appeals on behalf of the poorest communities, and the second is basically a regular rant against anyone who does not share his religious indoctrination. I often wonder how Scottish society would survive without the contributions of these sages.
  24. Presuming the intention is to pair Wallace and Byrne up front then it will be interesting to see how that will impact the team line-up. I don't think we can play both McLean and Orsi as wide players - one only I reckon - and there will need to be a balance of football and graft in the midfield. I wouldn't object to a middle four of D.Wilson/McKee/C.Wilson/McLean or the first three with McLean in a floating role behind the strikers. And I don't see Carswell as a must-pick this season.
