  1. Will be interested to see how Matt Ritchie does. Not going into debate over his nationality, when I saw him at Swindon, he was the best player I had seen down here since Carrick/Milner on loan at Swindon. Di Canio was in charge when he was at Swindon and he put a £10 million price tag on Ritchie. Then Swindon were facing administration and had to raise 450k to stay afloat, so Ritchie sold on the cheap, this pretty much caused Di Canio to walk. Whilst not a fan of the grandparent rule, we may as well use it, since other countries do as well. If he helps us qualify for Euro 2016, then no complains from me. Not quite sure he will be international class, but hope he is and really want him to do well, should he feature for us.
  2. Got the new album on pre-order. Also hoping to go to the Malta gig on Jan 10th
  3. Reply I got when I emailed to see if I could now get delivered - Hi Dale Sorry and unfortunately bookings cannot be changed now. The uplift will be from the stadium on match day and information will be issued in due course. Best Wishes Scotland Supporters Club On plus side, least I booked my flight from Birmingham and hotel ages ago, as even then, Hotels were few and far between and really expensive.
  4. Doh! Some how missed that. Will see if they can send out (not today though, as website is mad today)
  5. Crazy logic. I landed at Luton airport at 1pm. At same time a plane landed from Poland, full of lads in Scotland shirts/kilts. I assume they also live in England. However even though they went to Poland, you are saying they should not be allowed to buy tickets for this game as they live outside Scotland. End of the day, if any away fan in the home end, they should be kicked out the ground end of.
  6. Hope it isn't! I did notice though, no delivery options and all tickets to be collected?
  7. Tickets finally booked Seems to be very few left.
  8. Hmm this fills me with no confidence. I was flying over France at 12! So only joined queue 30 mins ago. Could be a long night
  9. Anyone else having problem getting tickets? Currently my estimated time to get through for a ticket is 1hr 30 mins. This estimate has not changed for the last twenty minutes.
  10. I support the print industry and still buy books. Despite 24/7 social media coverage at the weekend, especially on a Sunday, I do like to buy the morning papers and have a good read of them as well.
  11. Thanks for the all the responses. Done the best man speech last Friday. Went down really well. Several people even saying best speech they ever heard. Other people shocked that they actually understood me for once. Was hard staying sober till 4pm! Once again, thanks to those who posted
  12. Some cracking stories in this thread. The Zambia one just tops them all though, Crazy

  14. What is everyone's fancy for the Derby tomorrow? Been a while since my last visit in here, but I am guessing I am still the top poster in this thread Can't remember how you search for it these days.
  15. Cheers for the feedback, given me plenty to go off, much appreciated.
  16. http://www.pieandbovril.com/forum/index.php/topic/107341-best-man-jokes/ Hurrah, just found this thread. That cake in tiers is also mentioned in it. I was going to use it, but now seems all to common
  17. Another best man thread. I am going to be the best man in a couple of weeks, so now got to the stage of bricking it and thinking it is time to work on my speech. Only had 1 years notice, so nothing like leaving it to the last minute. For those who have been down this road, how did you get on, any tips/pointers most appreciated. Going to be hard trying to stay sober before I have to read the speech.
  18. The guy has been given countless chances by Swindon. Sadly, all to often, he refused to go to training, instead opting to go out in London. Even managed to have a prang in his Range Rover (With R4NGER as his number plate) on xmas day. After boxing day he once again opted to not go training. Swindon are now expected to termniate his contract on Thursday. Was a decent player when he could be bothered at Swindon. However, lone striker role did not suit him as he is a lazy git. We kept hearing rumours of how quick he was, none of us ever saw this at Swindon. His court case in January. If cleared not sure if he will get another football league club. A lot of clubs, such as Swindon, will think they can change him, but doubt it will happen.
  19. http://www.swindontownfc.co.uk/news/article/chairmanonranger-996683.aspx STFC Chairman Jed McCrory has confirmed that the Club have signed Nile Ranger on a one year contract with requisite caveats vis-a-vis his ongoing legal case. “Having spent a few weeks in discussions with Nile explaining our vision and the values of the Club and what we would be looking from him, I feel that with rigorous support from the Club, Nile could prove a valuable asset to the squad,” he said. “I am obviously aware of Nile’s personal matters, but I have always believed in giving people second chances. We will provide all the support he needs and it is up to Nile now to prove the star quality player he is – which we as a club believe he will. And of course, I am pleased that Nile has chosen to join Swindon despite having been offered commercially more attractive terms from other clubs.
  20. Nile Ranger has signed for Swindon on a one year contract today

    Just seen this after my topic. Yes I will be at End of an Era Pt2
  22. Got to agree with most the comments on here. Love Mogwai, seen them countless times and always have a stash of their albums in my car. Unsurprisingly at this moment in time, listening to Les Revenants, Wizard Motor blows me away everytime I hear it. Very much enjoying The Returned on Ch4 at present.
