  1. What isn't working with it? It took me about a week before I finally got it working Anyway I was out Saturday night, no vaccine passport checks for me at a nightclub
  2. 11 years in the end https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-beds-bucks-herts-58915375
  3. Absolute shite. Most Scottish clubs are fairly decent at giving young players a chance (maybe with some exceptions). The problem is the players being produced by the youth system clearly aren't good enough, so the problem probably starts even younger. Probably the coaching, idk. If all Scottish premierships played Scottish centre forwards from the youth team who clearly weren't good enough that wouldn't make things any better for the national team. Blaming foreign players is the easy option when the issue probably starts with the quality of coaching.
  4. According to my mum I met Mike Tyson in Braehead about 20 years ago. I vaguely remember the event but still not sure I believe it was actually him. Though my mum and sister insist it happened. Met Billy Connolly at some point in Glasgow A very drunk Kevin Bridges once jumped on me on Byres Road. Cycled into Mikael Lustig in Gent. Met Swedish rapper Timbuktu in a sandwich shop in Malmö
  5. IIRC a loan to buy deal initially, for €1.5 million, so at the end of the season took Celtic up on the offer (I think for there record transfer fee), with the intention of perhaps selling for more anyway.
  6. Celtic refused to guarantee an allocation for when they next play at Parkhead
  7. My flatmate and his girlfriend both caught covid, they continued going to work despite having all the symptoms because they both had multiple negative LFT results. Eventually after 6 days they both took PCR tests and were positive.
  8. For Guatemala I would nominate the race Walker ahead of the footballer. No nothing MMA so can't comment on that. But no win for the footballer
  9. Karagounis I would say is definitely not Greece greatest athlete. A number of the non-footballers listed are better options
  10. This could also possibly be true in my case
  11. A lot of little comments about Moroccans/Turks which I can't say I hear equivalent in Glasgow about any minority, as regularly or openly. I also didn't experience the same in Sweden: From what I gather from speaking to people is the nation is still a bit traumatised from the terrorist attacks a few years back. And my girlfriend mentions that she used to experience regularly creepy behaviour from Arab guys when just walking down the street, which she even admits has made her a bit racist towards them. It is also noticeable from electoral results with Vlaams Balang doing very well here, and it was noticeable in lockdown where in my mostly white neighbourhood there was parties but no enforcement, whereas my friend who lives in more mixed neighbourhood mentioned the police were constantly punishing people for breaches. Also people get very sensitive when you criticise Zwarte Piet.
  12. At the minute I don't really count as I am currently in Glasgow, but hopefully by the end of the year if all goes to plan I will be back in Belgium. Basically went on Erasmus to Sweden when I was 19 and had a great time. I was quite actually at how few people did Erasmus as I was very keen to do it. Then just before Brexit I was hoping to go abroad again, was mostly hoping to go to Scandinavia or Germany. Ended up in Gent in Belgium by random chance I found job basically taking over to get training there for a year before returning to work in an office in Glasgow. Gent was decent enough but was quite happy to return to Glasgow as I felt I done it. Then just after lockdown 1 was finished and I was due to leave Belgium about 1-2 months later, I was on tinder hoping for one final shag. I was successful, but in the end she is now my girlfriend and I am planning on returning because of that. Positives: Good beer, fries and cycling and better weather. Beautiful city as well Negatives: Racism (and I am in probably the most liberal city in Belgium), bureaucracy, expensive What I miss about Scotland is just going to the pub with mates, although that seems to be getting less and less often these days
  13. If you have food and drink you can take your mask off before the border
  14. Coltan mining in the Congo which we require for laptops/mobile phones has all of that. OK I don't know if they are posted all over the internet because I am not a fan of watching that stuff, but the human rights abuses are comparable if not worse.
  15. If you are unlucky you will get a phone call kindly asking you to obey rules. Also need to spend about £170 on a couple of PCR tests beyond that you will fine doing as you want.
  16. I wouldn't be confident that it is. I think unless a deal is done between the U.K. and the EU, to recognise each other covid passports, you will need two jags. Although I guess you would just need to speak to your gp about it. Although tbh nobody gives a shit if you fly into the country from an amber zone.
  17. If you are a British national you should be fine by the end of July. No foreigners allowed yet though https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/jul/26/covid-quarantine-for-britons-vaccinated-abroad-to-be-dropped
  18. I am voting for the tennis player. Worlds best at doubles is still the best at something.
  19. About 5 years ago I drunkenly bought this off eBay for about £20, probably my best drunk purchase ever.
