  1. Working til around 10pm . The mrs is going to the in-laws for the bells and a couple of drinks , so I will go there to pick her up on the way home and see the bells on with them . Drink free , home for 1ish and not at all bothered , the bells are pish . Day out to Musselburgh races tomorrow with around a dozen of us which will be good crack , so looking much more forward to that .
  2. Although we only scored the one goal, the first half was as comfortable as you will see, but from the first whistle of the second half, f**k me gently, a bigger shitshow you will struggle to witness. Credit to Hamilton, they pressed and harried, and won every second ball. We couldn't string two passes together and it really was pub team standard fare from us. A chance missed to edge a wee bit in front of Aberdeen, and a disappointing end to the year after the good work of the last few weeks.
  3. Nads doesn't fit the system, the system fits Nads. Bring him home.
  4. The wife got me one of those beers of the world advent calendars. Tonights offering of Portuguese Super Bock is decent enough, but the main event will be making a dent in the 10 pack of T that's in the fridge.
  5. Another absolutely meh performance against this lot at home. Although Rangers had several players not at it ( Kent, Kamara to name 2), we managed to be absolutely shite and fail to take advantage. When Mcgregor clawed out the point blank header from Long you just knew it wasn't going to happen. Even with all our attacking options on the park against 10 men we were utterly toothless. In midfield we were scrappy and lost almost every second ball, and if it weren't for a few good stops by Gillespie it could have been more. Disappointing but not unexpected result. Hopefully back to some semblance of our previous form for the kiddy-on Lanarkshire derby. I really wish Airdrie would get their shit together a wee bit to give us back a rivalry that we used to get worked up about, instead of the far less inspiring tussle with the shitey South Lanarkshire gang.
  6. We really do need some semblance of a natural finisher, as yet again yesterday we had large swathes of the play with no end product. All our forward options are young, relatively inexperienced guys who could do with someone who has been over the course in the league to help them through games. It's the main area of the team where I think Robinson didn't get it quite tight in the summer. There is not one among them that seems a 15-16 goals a season player. I can see this being another case of high possession stats with little to show for it in the end. 1-1. Gallagher for us from a set piece.
  7. Always been a bit of an insomniac , and has never really affected me work-wise etc . 5-6 hrs would normally be a good night , waking a couple of times during that period . Started a new job as a train driver at start of year and back onto shifts for the first time in 10 years . They are really big on you having the appropriate rest , which is fair enough I suppose if you're doing 90mph with 400 passengers on board . Earliest start times are around 4am , so to get the preferred minimum sleep means bed at around 7pm for a 3am rise . Very hard to do , especially in the light summer months but adapting as time goes on . Have found reading for a bit helps me unwind and drift off more easily , it's still the staying asleep part that's the problem . Regularly wake a few times during the night , but find I drift back off more easily than I used to . Shifts are generally 9-10 hrs and can be quite intense with concentration levels required , so job is far more mentally than physically exhausting , so think this is what obviously makes me more tired and has resulted in the slightly improved sleeping . Normally have a lie in on one of my rest days . Don't generally sleep longer , but just read and relax a bit to recharge a little .
  8. Three entries for wee North Lanarkshire in a relatively short list to select the worst town in the entire nation is a decent achievement . Even if none of them win the title in the poll , is the district basically thought of as the biggest overall shithouse in the entire U.K. ? Proud .
  9. First game of the season , and first of many routine victories as the Claret and Amber juggernaut begins to power it's classy , swashbuckling path to a cup win and top 6 finish , with our unbreakable defence recording yet another clean sheet . 0-3 . Either that or another scrappy shitfest on the plastic park .
  10. Aldred is typical of the journeyman defender , will bounce from club to club depending on the highest bidder . It's a short career , and sticking around at a club for which you have no great affiliation when you can double or treble your earnings elsewhere , is never on the agenda . He's been fantastic for us over the piece , but the only reason he rocked back up at Fir Park this season is that he had no chance of a game at Bury , and he could come here and put himself in the window , whilst still receiving a good wage . Good luck to him.If the Australia move comes off , fantastic lifestyle and money . Will always be grateful for his contribution , especially the two goals and full-time bounce at Hamilton .
  11. Being totally pedantic , travelling by train you would technically be going Down to London , but you would , indeed , be doing so on the Up line . Enjoy your journey down/up , and your return up/down .
  12. We've come on leaps and bounds in the last month , but playing Celtic on their own patch is a different kettle of fish altogether . Don't get me wrong , they're far from invincible , but the difference in resources is huge . What is in our favour is the fact that it's pretty much a free hit for us . A defeat is expected in almost all quarters , so #youngwell can go there without fear and play their own game . If they do and we get pumped them meh , f**k it . If , however , we go there and are still in it after an hour , you just never know . Just look at the last game at Fir Park when DJ stole us a point when Celtic failed to close the game out . We live in hope , and in that vein , I've got a fiver on Hastie any time and Motherwell win @ 40/1 . Intae them Motherwell !!
  13. Good result again for us , and great that it was two of our own youth products getting the goals . What a hit from Hastie . Who would 've thought that only a couple of weeks after that shambolic Scottish Cup exit , we would be on a five match winning streak in the league , 18 clear of the play-off place and sitting seventh , only 4 off St Johnstone ? . Some turnaround for us , but sorry to say that the old relegation express looks to be heading in the direction of St James station if the Buddies can't get a few points on the board very soon . Shame , as I like a quick train jaunt down for this fixture , via a few boozers near Central on the way .
  14. How we contrived to lose in the last meeting was unbelievable . St Mirren that day were quite comfortably the worst top flight side I'd seen in the last few years , and I include our McGhee side featuring Chalmers , Jules et al in that . We have obviously changed things up a bit style and formation wise , as well as a fair shift in our regular starters , while Saints have gone wholesale change during January , so hard to draw comparisons between then and now . Going on the assumption that we will start with the same 11 we have done for the last few games , and Saints new boys will still be in the process of gelling , I will go for a 2-0 'Well victory with Gboly getting off the mark and Main extending his red hot scoring streak to , eh , 2 .
  15. Survey complete . Unsure whether my comments about sectarian fuckwittery and The Rangers and Celtic getting in the fucking sea are suitable for use in a disserthingy at such a prestigious place of education , but batter in if so . Hope it helps , and good luck ( you'll need it if you're relying on the input from this place ) .
