  1. A piece on Tommy Coyne and also managing to shoehorn in Marv's goal against Bell. Well played.
  2. Sounds good but what does TYB mean forthosenotup on theirtext speech? I tried googling it and it suggested Take Your Bitch or Tickle Your Balls which I assume weren't what you intended [emoji1]
  3. I've been in Argyll the last few days so had a few rides on some off-road and forestry tracks on my ancient and clunky mountain bike rather than my usual road bike rides. Plenty of climbing, completely different pace and enjoying the change.
  4. A bottle of Highlander from Fyne Ales followed by a few nondescript Beer 52 cans that I can't be arsed listing. Oh, and some wonderful Lidl Ben Bracken Islay 16yo to wash them down.
  5. A bit earlier but we also had John Sullivan regularly announced in our team on the radio when it should have been John Philliben.
  6. Snap - I had one of those as well tonight! And an Avalanche last night. I'm up at Loch Fyne for a few days after all.
  7. I'm a driver and a cyclist and there are unfortunately plenty of cyclists that give the rest of us a bad name. I put delivery cyclists in a different category from all other cyclists and hope everyone else does also.
  8. Not the best idea in the world if you're going in the Queen Street direction! Anyway, I give you 'Strathaven' which I remember Mark Radcliffe regularly pronouncing as it's spelled on the radio before I realised where he meant
  9. I was in a pub yesterday that sold West's German Pale Ale. Never had it before but thought it was wonderful. My opinion might be skewed however as I've not been drinking recently and this was the first beer I could actually taste after a bout of covid. I could live with the cold I had but the lack of taste was a complete bugger.
  10. I've been impressed by the new artwork going up outside Firhill. Forgive my lack of knowledge of older Thistle players but, going by the sign, I assume his name's McParland.
  11. It looks like a Juniors ground - what division is that in? Although the police that came on very much look like top division.
  12. To be fair to the Vatican, it's primary function isn't to be a tourist attraction.
  13. Someone decided 9am would be a good time for a Teams meeting tomorrow morning. Wouldn't it be terrible if it was still not working by then?
  14. For those who eere at the game, how did Woolery do? Are we likely to see Roberts come in after the break?
  15. I've only watched half of the episodes so probably shouldn't be reading these comments but, considering the programme name and the start of the first episode, I always expected the last game to be the squid game. Sent from my SM-A715F using Tapatalk
  16. First league game we've not scored this season. BBC stats show us having 18 shots to Hearts' 10 and 7 on target to their 5! We obviously need to get back to having it the other way round. Sent from my SM-A715F using Tapatalk
  17. Yeah, I had this switched off but it has suddenly started appearing on my posts and I can't see a way in the settings to turn it off. Anyone got any suggestions?
  18. I've seen that a few times over the last few months, once with someone coming up from about 5 or 6 cars behind to go through as everyone else stopped for the light changing. I was behind someone this morning where there are traffic lights because the road narrows to go through a tunnel below the canal. For some reason he stopped a few car lengths back from the traffic lights and you could see a car coming in the opposite direction stopping at the lights on their side. The lights are obviously the type that can sense if anyone is waiting so after a pause they changed and the guy coming towards us came through. Rather than thinking he should edge up to the lights the guy in front of me decided they were broken and drove through the red light. I moved up and about 10 seconds later the lights changed.

  19. I'm going to guess Lidl on Balmore Road. Sounds about right. Last time I was in there two women were having a shouting match across the shop from two different till queues. They were still at it outside the shop when I was stuck in traffic on my home. Sent from my SM-T500 using Tapatalk
  20. I saw it mentioned on the Netflix thread and it had been recommended by the guy's 6 year old. I see it's a 15 on Netflix and my daughter says her friends found it a bit scary. Can you suggest what age group it would be appropriate for?
  21. LA Confidential - I'd forgotten just how great a film this is with marvellous performances all round.
  22. I watched The World At War last year during lockdown and a few others had a similar idea with it being talked about on here at the time. I watched the film Stalingrad recently so decided to re-watch the episode on it to remind me of some of the detail. Quite a few of the episodes left me absolutely speechless and this was one of them. For some reason I hadn't watched the last episode and watched it earlier this afternoon. The figures are absolutely staggering with 55m dying in WWII (including civilians) - 20m Russians, 15m Chinese and 5m Germans (of which 1.5m died in Russian prison camps). Remembrance Day will be coming up shortly and there will be the usual stuff appearing in the Poppy Thread but for me the whole purpose of Remembrance Day should be for people to remember the dead and recognise the pure folly of war. If anyone hasn't seen this series (I got it on the Yesterday channel) then I certainly recommend it. It doesn't glorify war, it's not jingoistic, the footage and interviews are incredible and it makes you look at the world in a different way.
  23. Our opponents have been getting plenty of opportunities and at some point a team is going to start aiming shots away from Kelly. Hopefully it's not Saturday but the highlights from the Livi game suggest the Hearts frontline was fairly clinical.
