    Oh! How brutally direct of you parkcircus. And there was me trying to gently humiliate them back to a Pollok thread .... seems they've lost their way big time, eh!?

    , the widden quaich, is this to be Poloc' s reward this season ???
  4. Pollok pubs

    haven't heard of him but that won't do him much harm, till later in life anyhoo,, but is he transfer-listed?

    All the latest Transfer gossip on a Pollok Thread, be happy, so you don't have to hijack Buffs'

    Just keeping this in the forefront of the Pollok chat, interesting though it is
  7. Why Hamilton

    This should settle it once and for all. Achinlek is in the Province of Kyle, or was in 1654 according to Timothy Pont's map. Cumnock didn't exist then as such, Lefno Castle which had variations on that name is where now stands Dumfries House, near to Cumnock.
  8. Had a quick glance at the SJFA fixtures and it seems as though Whitletts and Irvine Vics are both free this Saturday.

    Apologies for my error in quanta ... should have read 22 games, 29 for, 70 against .... you do the arithmetic, cheers Quietmaybe ... not annoyed in the slightest, I just didn't think any player or management would answer you ... some folks are real easy to annoy though, maths pedants e.g.

    Oh dear indeed, you seem to be running out of full stops, 5 then 3 then 2 then 1. Perhaps your periodic electrons have elevated to a parallel universe, here, have some of mine, I've got more than I need, ...........................................................................................................................................................

    A rhetorical question is not a question about the art of speaking effectively; it is a question that is asked for effect, rather than from a desire to know the answer. “Why did you stop beating your wife ?” is a rhetorical question. A salesman calculatingly only asks questions designed to elicit Yes or No responses. He has ploys to deal with either, leading, of course, to a point at which he can ask the closing of the deal question, such as, " Do you waant that item delivered tomorrow or would next Tuesday do ?" If you had asked of the players and coaches, " Why have you played in the manner you did over the past 3 weeks?" you just might have got a reasoned response explaining that our planned strategy failed immediately we encountered the opposition.(or not). Due to unforeseen circumstances I couldn't travel to the Renfrew match but did attend Winton's game against Maybole. A Winton fan may well have asked the same question you posed, after all, Maybole have lost 70 goals from 29 matches ,an average of more than 3 goals per game, so they should have been 'humped', especially as Winton had Michael Wardrope in midfield (he had an OK game, one narrowly missed great shot from 30 yards out) , and Harpo ( David Smith) who limped off injured. What did Maybole do differently for that match given that their giant defender took an ankle knock within 10 minutes and had to be replaced late in the match. The answer is just what Junior football is all about, 'Uncertainty'. This is derived from the Quantum Mechanics Theory whereby a particle such as an electron or proton can be in 2 different places at the same time whilst also simultaneously not existing. This is analogous to Junior football whereby whenever a player passes a ball to his colleague who is no longer in a position to receive the pass it is generally intercepted by another player with a different coloured shirt, but Quantum Mechanics is colour blind and cares not who receives the ball so long as it stays within the orbit of the nucleus. If an injection of extra energy is provided to the electrons / players the quantum effect is to immediately shift them to another orbit and conversely if some energy is depleted they shift to a slower orbit. The state of play and the outcome is governed by the Uncertainty Principle of Quantum Physics and varies according to the position of the observer. In short, you cannot accurately predict what the outcome will be, only that an outcome will occur. You asked a Rhetorical Question yet you got an answer .... surely no-one needed to do that!

    I hope he does well and improves his game there, we had two wonder goals from him but otherwise he was behind the pace most of the time. Is there any chance we could get Harpo back as he's still playing at a high level, seeing how we missed Ryan Caddies before his revival. Good luck Michael!
  13. Your local paper versus your club

    Filled in but you need to list Pie & Bovril as a principal source of club information, not National TV, Radio or Web. Good luck with it Doc.

    To all normal forum posters, My Sincere Apologies for posting a Picture of Beith's facilities showing their shared facilities of a changing room with the adjacent Sports Centre and of course their non-existent Car Parking spaces meaning spectators' cars just block the local bus routes and the driveways of long-suffering neighbours. There was a humourous label appended which I have now correctly named with it's reference to bottles and not spears ( Beith used to have a Spear's School - sadly now demolished, but when we played Rugby against them they were proud to be called 'Chukkas' , ah! but times have changed, name calling is no longer to be tolerated) but I fear the Moderators will forbid my re-posting the picture as they have REMOVED the post and PENALISED me. Was that Sincere Enough, your honours?
