  1. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    So let’s get this straight. The First Minister of Scotland wants Scotland to remain in the single market but the draft agreement says no. The First Minister of Northern Ireland doesn’t want Northern Ireland to be in the single market but the draft agreement says yes. The Brexiteers in the cabinet hate the draft agreement but have fallen into line in case they risk a general election. The Remainers in the cabinet hate the draft agreement but have fallen into line in case they risk a general election. Corbyn is deciding whether he needs a shite, a haircut or a hot pie. Democracy – Everyone gets what nobody wants!

    Obviously, John Robertson rates him because he tried to sign him for the Championship. I'm not sure if he's ever seen him in training. Hutton played three league games and the cup final v ICT last season and in two of those Carswell played too. So that's three managers who rate him.
  3. Sons' sorrow

    I just remembered that at the time he was Sons boss, I used to bump into Murdo in Helensburgh and we’d chat about how Sons were doing. One day I asked him if Charlie Gibson was injured as he wasn’t playing. His reply was that the Sons legend Colin McKinnon was a better player.........

    I can think of players, going back to Alan Kay and Tom Coyle whom the fans didn’t rate but the manager(s) did. In fairly recent (for an old git anyway) memory the two who spring to mind are John Dillon and Stevie Bonar. Then there were fans favourites whom, for whatever reason, wouldn’t get picked. Craig Brittain and Bryan Prunty for example. It’s clear that Kyle Hutton is in the former category. As has been pointed out on the Forfar thread, there are players to cover for him but both Aitken and Duffy prefer an unfit Hutton to fit alternatives. Why is this?
  5. Battle of the Defences - FAFC -vs- DFC

    As others have said, Gallagher out of position wide and Beanie is out of position up front. There is an obvious solution here. I don’t think Gallagher was embarrassing though, far from it.

    Just been messaging back and forth with a friend of mine who’s a Killie fan. She reckons that they’ll be quite amenable to Thomas staying for the season. She says he’s nowhere near their first team or bench at the moment.
  7. Dumbarton -vs- Stenhousemuir

    Thank you kindly. Good job.

    I don’t think so but I didn’t hear the whole thing. I think when they said “Let’s hear from the Dumbarton fans”, they were looking for backing for poor wee hard done to Stevie.
  9. Dumbarton -vs- Stenhousemuir

    Some context and perspective are needed when looking at today's, admittedly dire, game. Jim Duffy has to work with the players he has inherited - including the injured and indeed including Kyle Hutton. We got the three points and that is the priority in the situation we're in.

    He actually said “full time players” who could compete.

    As far as the sacked by phone thing went, there is no correct way to do these things. Perhaps the chairman wanted to inform Aitken of the decision as soon as it had been taken rather than hear it second hand in between the decision and the meeting. I agree that he's doing himself no favours and I have emailed the show.
  12. Sons' sorrow

    Aitken is a guest on Off the Ball. Two minutes into his contribution and he's moaning about being sacked over the phone and not face to face, how unfair it all was and how in his last game he had eight injuries. Confirms he spoke to Stirling Albion.
  13. Sons' sorrow

    I know it’s an allegorical depiction. However it looks a bit like Beanie claiming a penalty. Seriously though, good job by the artist on a difficult surface.

    Just in case anyone thought you made it up, here is the report from the Herald on 28/11/1932

    Typical Herald. Glasgow Athletic should read Port Glasgow Athletic.
