  1. There are Mayflies that have watched Rangers in the flesh more times than you will ever do. They rarely live longer than a day... Like the hundreds of H*ns that lay flayed on the pitch that day in May – when Sir David Gray shrugged off Halliday – and I cut Kenny Miller's corpse into a gourmet filet. You're not even as loyal as those that did 'Walking Away'. The Rangers Way.
  3. Hibernian v Celtic

    Celtc couldn't sell their allocation... Disgraceful! They only sold half the South Stand... Shocking! That young right-back Whittaker was a revelation... So graceful! Our setup was outstanding and our stands were rocking. Mackie's knife through butter balls – dear – they were Scotty Allan-like Kamberi's control looked quite Messi – so he cleaned it up with a tidy strike. Stevenson's drive: Sproule on a bike. Edouard's dive? Triple front somersault pike. Slivka's tasty shimmy — an early, composing start. Leithuanian — Wolf. Celtc — gang. Mozart. Bach in the side, Horgan: a thorn in Brown's backside. Brown slips over and slides; Horgan never broke stride. Brown careered into a career-ender on youth Vykintas. Brown's career? Ended. Euthanised. Dignitas.
  4. Hibernian v Celtic

    We need to get our thumb out for this game. Effortless Efe has been our most reliable player since our slump, be it in defence or going forward. He can't do it all on his own forever, especially with the osteoarthritic changes you'd expect from the 52 year-old. Injuries have plagued our side this season. If Lennon wasn't picking his side out of a hat, you could sympathise with him having so few fit players. Marciano (if he Israeli fit) Ambrose Porteous Hanlon Stevenson Milligan Bartley Boyle Mallan Horgan Kamberi Kamberi hat-trick. Cap doffed for Efe.
  5. Hibs vs Accies

    Effortless effervescence from Efetobore Antonymbrose. The Nigerian Prince has returned, after his earlier cameos as 'Clown Prince', to his rightful place on our right-hand side. We become a dynamic team when he plays and he is the right player for how we have been playing; cutting out counter-attacks and creating space with his pace, he suits our direct & attacking style. Ambrose always looked to receive the ball whether he was under pressure at centre-back or ravaging forward at right-back. Some fans clamoured for Efe to become synonymous with the mistakes he made earlier in the season. He was arguably our best player. Porteous may still be developing, but he has played better alongside Ambrose than McGregor ever has. Yesterday, their styles of play complemented well. Gray has risen from the ashes of the treatment table, after inflammation issues and burning out in recent seasons. His head produces more Gold moments than Rob Jones singing Spandau Ballet; his mentality still has him throwing everything at the ball though and it ended with him clashing heavily enough to need subbed. Stevenson's crossing was sub-standard yesterday; once Gray's sub resulted in Nelom at left-back, it released Stevenson to drift more centrally and he became far more useful with players around him. If Nelom is the real deal, then I'd like to see more of Stevenson in defensive-midfield. Bogdán made a crucial stop when Porteous and/or Ambrose let a hopeful lobbed ball bounce in behind them; if Bingham scored the one-one-one opportunity, I reckon the game could have got a bit more attritional. As it went though, Hamilton contributed to their own demise by allowing Hibs the time and space to turn on the ball. 'Slivka' is onomatopoeia for his passes: a slick flick of the Leithuanian's leg and the ball is crackling into place for his teammate to play. I feel that people underestimate the value his (and Milligan's) passing offer a team that wants to break forward quickly. A vital second is saved by the way they place the ball for the receiver: crisp and weighted well, we can turn & move or play it instantly. This caused Hamilton myriad problems as our centre-midfielders started off strings of passing and movement. It's the type of passing that we will need against the likes of Livingstone and Hearts, when we find ourselves without time on the ball and under pressure. At times though, Hamilton were so far off their marker that it was simply a case of us connecting the dots. Accies put so little pressure on the ball and we revelled in it. Since Milligan made his first appearance, we have not lost a game and have kept four consecutive clean sheets. We were toiling to fill in a couple of Mc-massive holes in midfield and after a p***kly interim of Whittaker as a stopgap, our performances have spiked with our Aussie anchorman. He's already fallen foul of the standard stereotyping and lazy clichés: 'does the dirty stuff well' – 'the bit of steel that we need' – 'keeps it simple'... Milligan is a much better player than that. He provides an assured presence for the back four whilst providing slick passes forward. He looks like he can lead the team, exemplified when Ambrose dwelled on the ball and Milligan walked through him to play the ball back to Bogdán. Mallan has scored 9 goals this season; each of them from outside the box. The last player I remember being as potent from distance was Derek Riordan. Four or five assists isn't a bad contribution either for our latest Paisley prodigy. Who needs McGinn, McGeouch or Allan when you have Stevie Mallan! Hyndman finally proved his worth with a strong first half display; he offered the type of incisive passes into the final third that have been missing since Scott Allan. He took his goal superbly after a deft assist from the notoriously poor-passer Martin Boyle, not long after the notoriously flaccid-finisher scored our first with a sharp strike. Kamberi made himself available in midfield and although he didn't always get himself into the game, he dragged two defenders out and brought in several of his teammates. Lennon and his backroom team had me questioning our prospects on the 1 February 2018, before their signing of some unknown quantities and a snake resulted in us solving our puzzling profligacy in front of goal. Despite pulling three rabbits out of the hat in February, I doubted our chances once we lost our tremendous triumvirate in midfield. Though we may not be controlling possession as well as last season, we're scoring more goals from midfield and Milligan has plugged the area that was draining us of points. The upcoming games against Hearts, Celtc and (to a lesser extent) Rangers are when we can decide if this squad's problems have been addressed well enough to improve upon last season. Having options like Horgan and Agyepong to play alongside or replace Boyle will only create more opportunities and chances in front of goal. I don't think we have a definitive starting-eleven yet; I don't see why we should stick to one setup with the range of options we have when at full-strength.

    'Play' is subjective. 'Is' he a right-back? Yes, he is.

    Couplibaly We'll still let you sign Steven Whittaker... Please sign Steven Whittaker.

    26 April 1972 Texaco Cup Final | 2nd Leg Baseball Ground, Derby Official Attendance: 25,102 Derby County 2-1 Airdrieonians I don't believe that is Malcolm MacDonald / Newcastle United. To my limited search-engine-enabled knowledge, Newcastle did not wear socks like that. It appears to be a change kit; the socks are definitely more like the type that Airdrieonians used. Here are some more images from that day: If you look centre-right of the second image, a mascot appears to be wearing an Airdrieonians kit.

    I spent a good 15 minutes reading some FIFA rules — I think I know what I’m talking about... He’ll be playing within two months. If he isn’t, we’ll let you sign Steven Whittaker.
  11. Partick Thistle 2018/19 thread

    A decision was only made by FIFA in April 2018. Now that FIFA’s Dispute Resolution Centre has made their decision, Coulibaly can join another club. Coulibaly is due to pay $1.4m+ whereas Al-Ahly are due to pay $26,400+. Coulibaly can play for Partick Thistle regardless — at least until the end of this season.
  12. Partick Thistle 2018/19 thread

    Coulibaly’s rant seemed to be just that. I believe he was just pointing out to someone that Al-Ahly is also due to pay an amount. I read the letters as they were clearly visible at certain points of the video; I think a lot of us are misunderstanding the situation. I’m not quite sure that Souleymane understood the letters himself, going by the way he stuttered about the deadline to lodge an appeal as if it backed-up what he was arguing. It was totally irrelevant to what he was saying. If Coulibaly hasn’t paid the amount due, his next employer (Partick Thistle — and he can sign for them) can help him pay the amount. The amount will be amortised and can be paid incrementally, unless he lodged an appeal before the deadline. The same goes for Al-Ahly: they must pay Coulibaly the amount due unless they have lodged an appeal before the deadline. If Coulibaly or Al-Ahly have not appealed the ruling, the player should be eligible to join another club. Neither party has to pay the amount due within the time limit on the papers he held up; the deadlines on the paper were solely for the cut-off point to lodge an appeal - one for the claimant and one for the counter-claimant. If neither have paid the amounts, interest is applied to the amount until it is paid. Partick Thistle may have made an agreement with Coulibaly to help pay off the amount due in exchange for his services or Coulibaly may be in the process of paying Al-Ahly; perhaps it is already paid for. Coulibaly should be able to sign for another club even if the full amount is yet to be paid. He may take a while to get up to speed, but he is an outstanding coup for Partick Thistle. I am inclined to believe that the owners and/or club may have offered to help with the instalments paid to Al-Ahly whilst he is at the club. If Coulibaly has appealed the case, he would still be eligible to play for the current season while the case is brought to the Court of Arbitration for Sport — if necessary. That is just what I have gathered from FIFA’s myriad rules & recent amendments. I could be completely wide of the mark but I believe I’m a bit closer than people suggesting the Thistled Ivorian is getting mixed-up. A tremendous signing.

  14. Hibernian European Tour 2018/2019

    Brann have ceased to be — they are no more... After that result, Hibs won’t be pining for the fjords. Is there anything we can do against the Norwegian Blues? Will we become an ex-ClubClub? The defending and goalkeeping was dreadful for their goals; you would expect (hope) that Hibs will be much tighter at the back. I hope we see a Renaissance with Bartley, after falling out of favour for such a long period, but I can’t see him or Whittaker providing the movement needed. Time is catching up with Bartley whereas time is up on Whittaker. Even if Bartley had the stamina, he has never looked comfortable on plastic pitches. Our team is unbalanced; we will not be able to accommodate our best players unless we play some out of position. Although it may put pressure on Hibs from the start, I would prefer Gray & Stevenson sitting back. Perhaps Ambrose could be used as a sweeper? If Horgan was available, a 4-3-3 may have been a good option. I suppose it’s still feasible with Swanson, but I can’t see him starting. Shaw for Kamberi is a possibility too: we can’t risk Kamberi if his knee isn’t fully healed, certainly not on a plastic pitch. I reckon we’ll see the same team from the 1st Leg.
