  1. The Official President Trump thread

    Seems that the press either jumped the gun or things have changed as he's still in his post and set to meet Trump on Thursday in person.
  2. The Official President Trump thread

    It looks like Trump is about to sack the deputy attorney general, Rob Rosenstein, who is responsible for overseeing the Mueller investigation. It's been initially reported that he was offering his resignation but this has been contradicted elsewhere and it has been standard practice for the administration to report 'resignations' to try and muddy the waters. The implications of this are that the Republican-held US Senate could potentially approve a Trump-backed replacement before the midterms meaning that Mueller's special counsel investigation can be terminated. This would throw up historical parallels with Richard Nixon's firing of his special prosecutor a year before he'd leave office.

    This 'unlucky' thing has been existent through McCann's tenure. There are plenty of games where we have genuinely played quite well and not taken points. I think when it becomes over that many games, it starts to seem that maybe something isn't quite right and he's incapable of drilling a consistent defensive performance to at least put points on the board. Hartley's teams were very poor defensively and lacked any sort of protection but McCann has somehow managed to sign many defenders and a couple of defensive midfielders with a better pedigree and make the issue far far worse.
  4. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    I could forgive it if EEA is on the table at least. I get it, they are shitting it because if they do go back on an EU withdrawal, they are likely fucked really badly when the next general election comes around. The problem is that the demographic who supports leave are the ones who generally come out and vote and this is an issue that has dogged British politics for decades and isn't going away soon. Ideally, from a Scottish Independence prospective, we want EEA + Customs Union or something very similar so a next referendum doesn't have to deal with issues arising from an initial hard border and have to again have too much reliance on rUK. EEA is the best of the worst batch of options and will still have a negative impact when it turns out we have to accept stuff that the UK was previously in a position to veto and we will see some businesses depart over time.
  5. Kilmarnock v Celtic

    Seems to struggle not being alongside Dundee's strong defensively drilled unit.
  6. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    And how strongly do they feel about it? More important than economic prosperity?
  7. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    The question was not freedom of movement, it was membership of the EU. Did 100% of the 51.9% vote on that issue alone? Go ahead and research the polling, it isn't even close and surprisingly, isn't even the lead issue. It's economic prosperity that's the primary issue and although that does correlate strongly with the immigration issue, it's by no means a deal breaker.
  8. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    What a load of nonsense. The EU put out their read lines from day one and have proposed a variety of deals from the start while we've put one across (and haven't exactly demonstrated the certainty that we could even legislate this). We've spent two years and the government has achieved nothing apart from giving in to the radicals on their back benches and instantly ruling out EEA and even EFTA due to retarded reasoning (i.e. crap about will of the people). It's not in the EU's interests to compromise the integrity of their single market and doing so is much much more costly long-term than the immediate future, they are an economy 6x the size and do not rely nearly as much on us for import/export. The sensible solution should have instantly been 'Right, it was a close vote and no specific plan was agreed. There is expressed will for leaving the EU and although emotive, this does not extend to EEA with prominent campaigners in the leave campaign highlighting this as an option. For this reason, we will pursue a transition to EEA in the short-term. Long-term, we will develop internal infrastructure to track the flow of goods throughout the UK and work with the devolved administrations to implement this ASAP. This will then give us the option to depart EEA in the future and produce an arrangement which works for the whole of the UK'. The process has been controlled by Tory infighting rather than any 'mean EU' who are just negotiating on behalf of their citizens.
  9. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    I get the feeling this is a bit of a 'Thick of It' moment and they had something to announce which was derailed last minute. The delay was very convenient and she did very well to talk for ten minutes without actually saying anything.
  10. Scotland squad for Next month

    Oops not that! It's a different place called 'Murphy's Pub and Lounge'. EDIT: Now seen that they seem to be the same place. Can't really remember the outside being like that but it was definitely quite normal inside!
  11. Scotland squad for Next month

    Seems that Southgate is trying to get Cairney to switch allegiance.
  12. Scotland squad for Next month

    I think there's an Irish pub called Murphy's that I've watched games in before. You should get something sorted anyway.
  13. It just seems a bit odd because Martindale has a direct coaching brief. I think it definitely is good practice if there's another person apart from the manager to oversee certain things though. I don't know if it's fair or not but I get the impression that his role is described how it is because he's maybe started at the bottom and worked his way up? I've found it very interesting but articles about it are pretty shit as they just go into the whole drug conviction stuff and make sinister implications without anything insightful.

    I know he's not that old but he could maybe feel it'd be his last chance of a top flight club. He's not really been fashionable for years and hasn't been mentioned for any top flight jobs that I can recall in recent seasons. Fair play to him if he wanted to stick it out at Ayr but I would be surprised if he turned an opportunity like us down if it does come along for him.
  15. Dundee vs Hibs

    I thought we looked much worse with Moussa in place and he looks a far smarter player.
