  1. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    And how strongly do they feel about it? More important than economic prosperity?
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

    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.
  5. 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!
  6. Scotland squad for Next month

    Seems that Southgate is trying to get Cairney to switch allegiance.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  10. Dundee vs Hibs

    I thought we looked much worse with Moussa in place and he looks a far smarter player.
  11. Now that you say it, I think it was actually like that before but they didn't say anything and were just happy to take the cash or never thought to check. Took the posters advice and went looking elsewhere. Got there at like 1.15 and found plenty of spaces at Loanbank Quadrant which was about a 10-15 minute walk from the away end. Dundee's humping was a courtesy that allowed a departure before full-time (when everyone else seemed to be leaving) and it was about 25 minutes to get onto the motorway which isn't that bad in my experience (it was more than an hour in the car parks before) and obviously saved £8. If you are happy enough coming through early enough, I think you'll get a space fine. A wee tip, I'd advise you to take the M74 on the way there/back as well. Seems like the bulk of traffic makes its way through town and avoided everything coming out that way.

    McInness is fine at Aberdeen I think. A couple of draws at Hibs and St Johnstone are not embarrassing results and they were unfortunate with the red card against Killie. They are always hysterical until October and then calm down after that when they start efficiently putting the points on the board. If he did leave, it would be mutual and he'd see his stock as higher than us - targetting a good salary in England.
  13. All things Dundee FC

    That rumour is so bizarre that it must be true. Seems to be a good start to the season but after McCann's inexperience, I don't think it would go down well one bit and the perception would instantly be that he's young so turn to the negative implications - especially given it would be a midseason appointment to salvage our season.

    They are from different levels etc but I don't think the squad is that bad tbh. Just going by instinct, I think we could theoretically be OK. Hartley left us with fairly little (but still a few players who were dependable) and I think we've got more than we had in terms could of quality players now. Elton from Kidderminster actually has a bit of flair about him and the strike partnership that played at Ibrox (Miller and Kallman) could do OK I think. Kusunga is also nowhere near as bad as being made out and just had a couple of poor games recently in a team that has been chaotic. When you see that we signed a player like Caulker and our defensive record was still pretty shit, I think management is a big big problem. It's also quite worrying that the manager decides to bring in our slowest defender (O'Dea) to play for the first time this season at Ibrox of all places when he hasn't even played a reserve game recently, that's the sort of shit McCann seems capable of coming up with. It's no guarantee and we've no divine right to finish above any of our opponents but I think we've got a much better chance of staying up if we bring in someone like McIntyre, Neilson etc. I do sympathise a bit with McCann and think he's got a difficult job because of the amount of turnover in the summer (with the types of players arriving not being familiar with this league unlike our previous recruitment drives) but that doesn't change the situation we're in and it was anticipated well before it happened.
  15. Where is best to park at this one? Been stuck in that shitty away car park the last couple of times that takes an age to get out of.
