  1. Does anyone know how the payment works for players who play i the Euros? There's a general assumption that we've used the payment to us to help persuade O'Donnell to stay but what happens with out of contract players? Does the payment go to the previous club or a new club if he's signed for one even if he's not kicked a ball for them? I'm talking in general principles but obviously this is likely to apply to Gallagher. Does the player need to play or does just being in the squad mean a payment is made? We've obviously not been in this situation for a long time (if ever) - does Coyne playing for Ireland in the World Cup count? Lots of questions here but I've no idea how it all works!
  2. That is priceless. Will the Record publish Morton's statement? Unlikely but I'd be surprised if the Sun doesn't.
  3. I would always have someone out the far side of the box for the amount of times we overhit the cross or it's knocked on with a head-flick.
  4. To be fair, I don't think anyone was too much up in arms about the award in the first place. Now that footage from another angle shows it to clearly be a dive I'm sure Jim will be pulling his player and announcing he's had a word with him.
  5. Much as O'Donnell singing was rumoured, it's still very good news. He's not perfect but we'd really struggle to bring in someone as good without spending a lot more. Also helps to have some continuity of senior players.
  6. You'd need around 20-22 20kg bags by my reckoning if going down that route. Should then be able to compare prices. If you're close enough to the builders merchant you can do a few runs and save on delivery fee. 2.4x1.8x0.05=0.216m3 0.216m3 x 2000kg/m3 = 432kg
  7. I've no great feelings one way or the other on him and was not involved in it but the effect the DOE Awards scheme has had on many people suggests to me he did try to make a difference.
  8. I think Kelly feigned to go to his right then changed direction which was maybe enough to make him think he was sending Kelly the wrong way and leisurely stroke it towards goal.
  9. The funeral is supposed to be relatively low key. Will it even be televised? If it has to be moved, can in not just be to 4 or 4.30pm and we all just get our curry deliveries ordered to come at full-time?
  10. I won't be surprised if Roberts is out for the rest of the season but he wouldn't be the worst option to bring in. He's obviously surplus to requirements at Hearts but he could well be on a much bigger wage there. Similarly, you could see wages being an issue with Kelly.
  11. It took about an hour before Richard Gordon came on and explained to them how much pish they were talking.
  12. I've had enough of Beer 52's hit and mainly miss for tonight. Change of direction - Old Peculier with a Bunnahbhain Stiuireadair. Much better all round.
  13. Brew By Numbers 07 is an Orange and Vanilla Witbier. Not really getting the orange or vanilla. Not having much luck tonight - fairly average.
  14. Lever DDH Pale from Fallen Brewing Co in Kippen. Nice enough but fairly average pale ale. A bit more flavour at least.
  15. I was going to ditch Beer 52 but was tempted by one of their offers last week. It arrived today while I was watching the Motherwell game and I'm starting with this Phantom Hazy IPA from White Hag Brewing Co. A bit lacking in taste and fairly meh.
  16. Did these dares involve tasting them before or after the cakes had been in the urinal? Anyway, enjoying Luminous Lights from 71 Brewing Co - one of my regular favourites from Lidl.
  17. We're very fortunate to be level at half time. Need to change something. Maybe take off a forward and go 442?
  18. I wasn't convinced when it was first introduced but have grown to like it and appreciate its merits. The recent split introduced excitement that wouldn't have otherwise been there. I think it's mainly those that haven't really been involved in the battle for the top 6 who don't get it, mainly Old Firm fans.
  19. I've been at Tynecastle and thought they had Levein doing the PA even when he wasn't manager. Thought he just couldn't tear himself away from the place.
  20. They've taken the ill-informed stuff to a new level with their topic on who should get the 12000 or so Hampden tickets for the Euros. These tickets were sold by UEFA a few years ago and the number of tickets available will depend on the number of those tickets returned but not likely to be many (if any) left for the SFA.
  21. Our remaining fixtures will be meaningless after we've got the one victory that will pretty much see us safe. The sooner that happens the better for me.
  22. They're phrased in a way that some of them are just guesswork but I managed 7.
