  1. Kazakhstan V Scotland

    Around 600 I think Not too many out here just now.
  2. Khazakstan game coverage

    If you are in India the game will kick off at 10pm , 1 hour later than it does here in Kazakhstan.
  3. Perth Saints v Paisley Saints

    The mascot took it well.
  4. Offensive behaviour

    And at the Arsenal game today. How did the Hibs fans get tickets for these games? :-) Being serious it's all copycat actions. Will the authorities take it seriously before a player does get hurt and there is then a full scale riot in a ground. Maybe if they every sort out Brexit the UK government might enforce strict liability.
  5. St Johnstone FC Thread

    That's the job of a testimonial committee. Certainly with Ando and Dave Mackay there was a Facebook page etc. for all the events. Even at the Mackay match with Dundee it was the testimonial Twitter account who tweeted the match (done by Watty who normally does our home games) The player of the year event should be open to everyone but does have limited space so I can see why people feel that way.
  6. St Johnstone FC Thread

    You do realise if the club were to advertise them or the player themselves talk to club media about the event the cash raised on the night is then subject to tax and its not a testimonial event. I remember Ross asked Ando about it in one of his rare interviews and it then had to be cut when this was pointed out to the media team.
  7. St Johnstone FC Thread

    Like the two interns from Edinburgh Uni who work with the club through the week and on match days, that's how the club have been able to cover the reserve games as all the media volunteers (myself included) work Monday to Friday. While I did not mind covering the under 21's on a Tuesday night I am not taking time off to go to Kelty every second Tuesday. I am not sure what else they are working on but its more than just match day coverage. Unlike in the past however everything social media wise comes from McDiarmid during the week, in the past the match day volunteers would post and reply but that's now only done by the office staff and interns so there is a strategy outwith game day.
  8. All things Dundee FC

    Or vice versa, unfortunately the actions of the Marr brothers and all that follow mean the club its self will not have a good credit score and limited borrowing capacity, The holding company backed by the Americans however will have no problem borrowing to build the stadium.
  9. All things Dundee FC

    Was that not his payment to the end of the contract Its the same way that Bennett was able to vote with the balance of the lease on Dens and not the money he was due, if the club had owned the ground then there is a chance the CVA would have been rejected and the revenue would have got there way back then as they then did with Rangers (RIP)
  10. When a part time Saints team still in the 2nd division beat the current Scottish cup holders away from home in the 2nd round of the league cup in 1987
  11. 2018/19 Challenge Cup

    The semi finals are scheduled for the opening weekend of the Irish season Imagine a team taking a free day on the opening weekend of the season to play in some foreign cup competition, the league in Scotland would never allow that to happen!
  12. The East Fife Thread

    I hope you stand your ground on this and tell Bohemians where to go with the fixture change request If they had made the Europa league they would have had the same situation .
  13. 2018/19 Challenge Cup

    The outright arrogance of some of the Bohemians fans on twitter is almost at English fan level They entered the competition They know the dates, they don't have a fixture on the 17th of November so that's the date the tie should be played. if they cannot play that weekend then they not East Fife should forfeit.
  14. What Rule Change Would You Suggest?

    A 25 year back dated rolling admin rule, with the rules set in stone First admin , 10 point penalty Second admin , 25 point penalty plus automatic demotion of one division for the following season, so win the league you stay where you are , fail to get promotion, your relegated and if your relegated its a double relegation Third admin, ejection from the league and that club cannot ever return with the same badge and all honours remain with the now defunct club.
  15. What Rule Change Would You Suggest?

    Change the rule where if a goal kick does not go out of the box the keeper gets to take it again if a defender plays it because he is being pressed by the forward it should be an indirect or even direct free kick to the attacking team and if a forward is stupid enough to play it early make it a free kick to the defending team. As it stands it actually encourages time wasting and negative play, especially now with so many teams playing out from the back
