  1. What impresses me from the highlights is the amount of chances we had in addition to the goals and the early disallowed goal which would have been the opener looked ok. Although it did look as thought the Aberdeen defence had given up at a few of the later goals.
  2. Well, they did sell the tickets on the basis of a "spectacular" underwater show when they were to hold their breath for ages. Instead they sat looking ridiculous and sang crap Disney songs. I can't believ they didn't get pulled up more for that either in the boardroom or the people that were duped into selling tickets. Paul may have said goodbye to the other two contestants but he conspicuously said nothing to Sugar or Karen and Claude.
  3. When I click on a thread title it takes me to the first post rather than the first unread post the way the old site used to. I'm using the mobile version - do I need to change something in the settings (can't see anything obvious).
  4. Scott McDonald. Boooooooooooooo! St.Mirren standard booing this afternoon. I was quite impressed with the sarcastic cheering when they got a free kick in the second half although I didn't think they had been particularly hard done to.
  5. Thanks for the advice guys. I'm sure we'll go to the zoo and the war hospital museum looks interesting - will see if we can fit it in as I think we'll be going to the war tunnels. St. Brelades looks lovely and the forecast looks good so I think we'll give that a go.
  6. I remember that game well. I had an ingrowing nail removed from my big toe on the Friday afternoon and could hardly walk so went to the Main Stand instead of my usual spot. I was in agony every time I involuntarily jumped up. You could have probably done without knowing this little anecdote though.
  7. We're taking the kids for five days during the school holiday in a few weeks to a hotel in St. Helier. It's family orientated with a pool and we're not hiring a car so will be relying on public transport. Can anyone give us a few tips for things to do and how to get around? Kids are 11 and 7 if that helps steer suggestions.
  8. I don't know if the round they enter is seeded but I assume the set-up is designed to minimise the chances of them being drawn against a non league side.
  9. Thanks - it works on Chrome. My phone is fairly old (Samsung Galaxy S3) and I normally just use Samsung's Internet browser which is having the problem. You mentioned applying the "P&B Customise Me Theme". How do I do that as I can't see any mention of it in my account settings? If that means showing a theme based on supported team, then it is already applied.
  10. The forum is showing correctly on my mobile but the list of threads are displaying vertically i.e. one letter of the titles on each line. Any ideas?
  11. From the little I've seen about it, they constantly refer to an outdated version of Black's law dictionary which is for US law. That's where the driving / travelling bullshit comes from. I wondered what the adverts were for and a quick Google tookme to a Reddit discussion with lots of videos of them filming themselves acting like dicks and then being amazed the police didn't just drop it. Instead they normally got their car windows smashed in and dragged out. Or tazered. Or both!
  12. You're right (I was editing my post when you posted). My mind was playing tricks on me - I was sure we had him on loan initially but it was a bit of a bold move by McGhee to spend some cash on him.
  13. There was also Jim O'Brien who was pretty guff to begin with but improved greatly to the extent we took him on (we may even have paid money to Celtic for him). He certainly came on leaps and bbounds under McGhee.I can't remember if we managed to sell him on or if he left at the end of his contract. Edit: sorry, talking rubbish. I could have sworn we had him on loan but I see we signed him outright in the first place.
  14. That statement says they'll both miss three games, so two next season.
  15. So is that the Celtic game and the first game of the season for whoever Lasley is playing for? Or do league cup ties count?
  16. Would it be asking too much for him to transform Chalmers into a left back?
  17. I didn't realise the news broke as early as lunchtime. In true P & B style, I was expecting Dundee supporters to still be all over it.
  18. I'm amazed nobody is talking about the points deduction and Thomson' s subsequent meltdown.
  19. I was at our last game of the season a few years ago (3, possibly 4) in Perth and the Saints fans invaded the park at the end? What was the reason behind it? Did you qualify for Europe that day or was it just because it was the last day of the season, like Motherwell had been doing for years?
  20. It was even better than that. They were playing us near the end of the season at Fir Park, went two nil up in the first ten minutes before going on to absolutely Hibs it and lose 6-2. I think that officially relegated them, they sacked their manager after the game (Miller?) and then double Hibs'd it by very kindly taking McLeish off our hands.
  21. Why are Hearts above Motherwell with less points in this table?
  22. After the recent verdict on the play-off shenanigans, Motherwell have to be seen to be doing all they can to prevent issues so they can say - look, we did what you asked. Hence the fairly strange tweets. I can see why sponsors would want their adverts to be visible during a televised game so saying they can't be covered by banners is understandable.
