  1. We completely underestimated the time it would take us to walk from the centre of Odense to the ground and were running pretty late. Fortunately some locals on their way to the game pulled over and offered us a lift - nice guys the Danes! If you're going to lose 2-1 in an away leg then a top-corner free-kick in the last minute to make it 2-1 is probably the best way to do it. I also did the overnight bus from Fir Park to Dortmund - for all the complaints about budget airlines they're a hell of a lot better than being on a bus that needs mopped out at Dover.
  2. Whatever it is, it's delicious. I was fortunate that one of my local Lidls still had it in stock when everyone on here was reporting it sold out and I picked up a second bottle. Maybe the more expensive bottles take longer to sell in Possil.
  3. What if they send Chris McLaughlin along to do that coverage?
  4. To be fair to him, Durrant didn't even protest. I'm not sure what that look on his face is though. Bewilderment? A slow dawning of what he's done? I don't think any referee could have not given that. The commentator wasn't half laying it on a bit thick at the beginning. Richard Gough biting his lower lip.
  5. David Robertson would be tremendous entertainment.
  6. And his agent. I'd like to see Cole here next season but unfortunately I don't think he'll be short of suitors offering more cash.
  7. I'm sure they had arranged a parade from Ibrox to George Square in 1997 to celebrate winning 9 in a row as it was a Bank Holiday Monday against relegation threatened Motherwell. Owen Coyle had other ideas.
  8. That's a bit like my Samsung phone recording my steps for the Samsung Health app with a monthly target of 200k steps. The folk at the top are doing the equivalent of ultra marathons every day for a month. So you've worked out a way to cheat the app - really? Why bother? I know I'm going to sound ancient here but the only person you're cheating is yourself.
  9. Few drams of Ben Bracken Islay 16yo tonight. Absolutely lovely as always.
  10. Had some red wine after dinner the a few beers. Really liked the 7 Giraffes. The Broughton Double IPA was ok - wanted something with a bit of bite to accompany the lovely Lidl special!
  11. Probably best doing something with the garage. Second best would be dormer windows. Do not remove the roof and replace with a steeper pitch- you'll gain very little and spend a fortune.
  12. You really need to talk to a local architect who is experienced in extensions in your area. They should have a rough idea of costs for the different options. You'll need to factor in fees for the architect, structural engineer and building warrant. If you know anyone who has had similar work done nearby it would be worth speaking to them to see if they would recommend their architect (and builder).
  13. I hadn't been watching but just turned on to see the score. Boyd was absolutely livid!
  14. There are all sorts of absurdities in that story but the one that stood out for me (apart from the obvious activity with dogs) is that he was "furiously " masturbating at the time. Did the judge question the witnesses as to his wanking style?
  15. I saw a couple of these wee birds with the red bills on the canal this morning. Haven't seen them before- are they some sort of duck? And yes, before anyone says it, I know the big white ones are swans!
  16. Really good episode. Danny Lennon was a great guest and I really enjoyed the feature on the card collector. I've got the Shuggy Edvaldson sticker in the 1978 Panini album with the terrible photo-shopping and was always amazed by it. Good to hear how they made it.
  17. Generally agree but I do like 1 or 2 like an Old Jock or McEwan's Champion to finish the evening. Anyway, tonight's offerings: Wasn't particularly taken with the Erdinger but the others are regular favourites. Washed down with some delicious Bunnahbhain 12yo and a lovely Glenrothes 10 before that.
  18. I can recommend a read of any of our recent match threads although you can generally stop reading when the match starts. Anything to take our minds of the actual football. Has to be garlic nan for me. Sometimes the curry itself is merely a sauce for the nan. I've never found shop bought nans to come close to those bought from a restaurant or takeaway and will sometimes even just get a fresh nan from the local kebab shop to go with the supermarket curries. Anyway, as usual I'm not confident about today. It sounds as though Hibs are fairly dynamic and like to keep the ball down so should win easily. We're far more comfortable when teams just lump aimless crosses into our box (see Rangers, Kilmarnock).
  19. A bit late but I've been catching up on last week's episode. Really enjoyed it, particularly the Campbeltown feature. Very good Last Minute Winner, nice to hear an original song but "George's Cross" - have they ever been to Firhill?
  20. I suspended my Beer 52 delivery for this month- getting the impression I made the right decision.
  21. Did he do ok? I wasn't watching closely but my dad said he looked out of his depth.
  22. The problem is that the two following games are probably more difficult (on paper) - Livi and Hibs so that could well turn into 3 points from four games.
