  1. Ye need 12 40k+ stadiums. China absolutely smashes that India also smashes it but most are cricket stadiums. Wouldn't be hard to make it work tho. Indonesia has 11 but has a few just bubbling under that wouldn't need much work (or let Malaysia or somewhere take a slot) Speaking of Malaysia they have 9 stadiums ready to go. A few others aren't far off. Australia has 9 with two being built*. So would need to build/upgrade one more (or let NZ take that slot) Turkey has 8 and wouldn't need much to get another four upgraded. No one else is really close. Places like Poland have about 5 that would work and a load of stadiums in the 20-40k capacity that could be upgraded. Maybe Morocco is a shout as they currently have 5 but one other stadium currently being expansed. That puts them halfway and they've bidded before but that was for a 32 team World Cup. *dunoo if the ones being built means current ones will be getting bulldozed or whatever.
  2. Poblachd-Dheamocratach na h-Alba a charaid!
  3. 1. Dundee 2. ICT 3. Partick 4. Morton 5. Raith 6. Queens Park 7. Ayr 8. Arbroath 9. Cove 10. Accies
  4. Socialist Scotland would be ideal. Hope we get it soon
  5. Apart from all the other reasons mentioned previously you can do Berwick to Perth in less than two hours. You'd probably need five hours to do Gretna to Campbeltown
  6. Slow down there cowboy. Let them sort out a goalkeeper first.
  7. You don't often hear about the single biggest new event of the last few years? Despite the effects of it being reported on a near daily basis? That's a bit weird
  8. Glad to see that thesaurus you got for Christmas is getting some use
  9. If this is the case I'm... all for it. These semi-official link ups between clubs are a good thing. Say John Smith comes through the Buffs U20s. Maybe gets the odd game off the bench but, suddenly, he's too old for the U20s to play regularly, the Buffs like the player, but don't want to stifle his development by keeping him on the bench. He signs for Eglinton. At that point he can, obvisouly, refuse to sign for Eglinton and sign for another clubs if he wants. Or he can still in (basically) the same set up he's used to and continue to improve. If he does well for Eglinton he can go back to the Buffs in future but, also, if he does well other clubs will appear. So maybe the Buffs think he's good but not really good enough for the LL where they are aiming for but Beith like the look of him. He stays in the game, clubs nurture players, other clubs sign players. It's all win-win. It's not like a B-team where you can trap a player in your system and hoard young players.
  10. HL will end up with three up/three down before Fort William are able to win a play off against the junior sides
  11. This reminded me of my mate learning Gaelic and I messaged him with that word and he didn't speak to me for three days thinking I was being sectarian
  12. The answer to both is Robbie Muirhead. Even after his multi-million pound move to Dortmund in the transfer window.
  13. I saw some interview with their new gaffer and he was saying there's a few players coming up from London with him. Still fries ma brain that Fort William seem to have a load of guys coming up from England to sign for them. I presume they're getting hospitality jobs through the chairman or the like?
  14. f**k. Yer right. I always thought it was entirely within Switzerland. Every day's a school day
  15. Again it's far from like-for-like as Liechtenstein has no border with the EU (although Switzerland is in Schengen so... kinda does?)
  16. I know there are ways it can work and, if independence comes to pass, there will be a solution at the end of it. It's just another headache and, depending on how well the "divorce" goes, could be a fucking nightmare.
  17. Agree in general but with rUK leaving the EU it could be a hassle. After indy most of our trade will be with the rUK and it will take time to build it up to be more international. Assuming an independent Scotland joins the EU that, most likely, means a hard border with the biggest trade partner.
  18. Years ago I gave up the lease on my flat to go and visit Australia and stay with family. While staying in Victoria I took a trip up to Queensland as a holiday within a holiday. While there I went into a café where I was served by a Scottish guy and asked where he was from. He was a Fifer but, upon finding out I was from Greenock, mentioned he had lived there for a year after uni before heading to Australia. Turns out he was the guy who lived in my flat before me and we had both gave up the lease to go to Australia. (In a slightly less coincidency thing about ten years after this I went back to someone I met at a wedding's flat for an after party and it was also the same flat)
  19. That'll take decades for Vale of Leithen to drop that far. Not that they're not shite. They'll just find loopholes to Houdini out of it. God love 'em ETA: why does any mention of VoL get a red dot from marshy? It's fucking mental
