  1. Kilmarnock should comfortably win that Championship but we said that before about Dundee United. At least if Dundee won it would bring back the Dundee and Ayrshire derby matches. It might take them 2 or 3 years to regroup but Accies will come back.
  2. There have been crowds at all the games in Scotland the past week although allowing in larger numbers would have been better. I'm surprised the SFA didn't look to host the cup final elsewhere when it was announced that Glasgow was staying in level 3 - pretty much anywhere outside Glasgow would have done for a crowd of 500 or so. Dunfermline for instance.
  3. I think Celtic had the opportunity to mess the club and Turnbull about last summer with a low offer and it's to their credit that they didn't and appear to have behaved in a very professional manner. It was noticeable that both clubs publicly thanked each other for the way they handled things- don't often see that.
  4. Did Gordon go from Hearts? If you're including Edinburgh teams as provincial then there's McGinn to Villa but he's the only one I can think of so your point stands. Sell-on clauses are massive for us, particularly if a player moves to England and his value shoots up.
  5. Is that one of the rides at M&D's when it goes wrong? I take it all the clubs linked with Campbell have nicer places nearby where the players live (St. Anne's for Blackpool), just like most Motherwell players probably don't live in the town.
  6. I saw some scenes from World War Z on the news last night.
  7. Partick Thistle got a guy in today to tape patches of what looks like black bin bags over a couple of adverts on the side of the main stand. I assume they no longer sponsor them. I can't post photos from my phone but, take my word for it, it's extremely tin-pot.
  8. Absolutely. Like that video of the nugget celebrating the Chelsea equaliser that got disallowed. Never mind VAR, what was he doing filming?
  9. If she doesn't accept Google Maps or Wiki, what about OS Maps? Or is she so far down a blind alley that she's not going to accept any sort of reason?
  10. I've been given a Pinter as a present which allows you to ferment then condition 10 pints of beer from a pack. Anyone got one and have any tips? I'm looking forward to trying it out but might need another fridge for it! Don't see Mrs. McSquackle accepting the kitchen fridge being emptied for it.
  11. I'm not on Instagram but I hear Cole posted clips of his goals with the message "over and out" which suggests he's away. Probably no surprise to anyone but would have liked to have been able to hold on to him.
  12. I'd imagine the bulk of Rangers supporters did similar. When you look at the clips of the mayhem you can see the numbers are way down on what they were earlier and it seems to have got to a point where the police decided the only ones left were those intent on causing bother and decided to clear the place (after giving several warnings). They're now saying there will be many more arrests and I expect most of these to be the ones who stayed on well past the point of celebrating.
  13. You don't think they would all up sticks and leave do you?
  14. There are lots of comments on social media about not arresting them but I think the police are quite happy to contain it, pick up the worst offenders and then just let social media identify the culprits. I know none of this makes sense but surely the young guy throwing the traffic barrier should realise this. He's going to be so easy for them to pick up.
  15. That video needs a warning before it. The Maggie ending is terrifying.
  16. I thought it was only against us that Joe Lewis dropped these absolute clangers. Evidently not.
  17. Probably complete pish but I remember rumours the Zambesi was a knocking shop. As I said, I was never in it although I remember a family dinner in The Villa when my sister and I lost it when my mum started going on about how she liked a good lamb shank. We used to go the old baths in primary school and had to change in the 'Big Room' which I think was just the plant room. At least we couldn't be seen by any pervs in the gallery. Our teacher sat up there doing her knitting while we were in the pool. Our visits were over winter so about half our trips were cancelled because the heating was broken. We were told one time the pool had frozen over but I assume that was made up!
  18. Of course it's still the Tassie (and the Peacock). Bring back the Zambezi ( I was never actually in there though).
  19. I managed a few wonderful hours at Drygate this afternoon. A decent pint of Seven Peaks then 2/3 pints of everything else to try: Fallen Stirliner Weisse - lovely and fruity Pretentious, Moi? - really nice solid IPA Fallen Chow Chow - right good smooth stout Tropes- another tasty fruity IPA. Lovely stuff all round and great to be sitting in a pub again with draft beer.
  20. Brilliant. Well done. I'm no great runner but used the app a few years ago and it's amazing to see the progression. You'll find that, even if you don't run for a while because of injury or anything else, you can dip back in again at a suitable week and pick it up again.
  21. I've been on holiday to various parts of France and saw Annency on a cookery programme and really fancy going there. Come on Rumilly.
