  1. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    I liked May accusing them of gamesmanship and then talking up a no deal Brexit in the next sentence. Bringing up the concept of bluffing right before actually bluffing. Convincing stuff. How do the folk wanting/expecting a Labour govt soon expect that to play out? Corbyn seems to be pretty flimsy on what should happen here. Will the EU change their mind and start agreeing to a picky choosy meh Brexit or is Big Jez going to a give us red, white a blue granite hard Brexit? Personally I don't think he would even want to be PM before we leave on someone else's watch so an election would be a great laugh.
  2. Boxing Thread

    Some folk are getting carried away with the robbery chat aye but there's also some contrarianism kicking in amongst the superfans out there, with how much Canelo strolled it.
  3. Dundee vs Hibs

    I see you Dundee c***s trying to invoke a reverse P&B curse. Gonny stop it.
  4. General Politics Thread

    I don't really go along with it being suspicious or interesting that the agents' story is so weak. Russian state TV used the immediate breaking of the story to remind traitors that they can be punished and the Russian embassy twitter account have been shitposting about the incident since day one. The whole thing is so blatant because that's the point. I don't know if this has already been posted, or how accurate all the anecdotal stuff in it is, but the NY Times article about this last week offers theories on 'why Skripal'. A Spy Story: Sergei Skripal Was a Little Fish. He Had a Big Enemy. If it's true that Putin publicly threatened the spies who were swapped at the time, then it should hardly be some big shock that this would happen eventually. Especially since Russia's relations with the west have fallen apart so badly since that deal.
  5. Hibs vs Killie

    BBC Sport have the Killie penalty claim in their highlights as well. Both decisions clearly correct. Well done to the ref for having the courage to judge each claim on merit and for not giving in to Seth de Clerc's bully boy tactics.
  6. Hibs vs Killie

    Had the fear after seeing the starting lineup but the team/formation we finished with isn't far off our best team and it's not a surprise we won it late. I agree with others that a 4-4-2 which allows Maclaren and Kamberi to play up front is a no brainer. Boyle and Horgan running at folk and crossing to those two will create a ridiculous amount of chances. Killie played some nice stuff at times. I could see them maybe being in the conversation for top six again, which would be a terrific little achievement.
  7. Boxing Thread

    Even as someone was who really wanting GGG to win (and thought he did), I thought the commentators were ridiculous. I had Canelo ahead after about 7, while they were talking at that point like GGG was in complete control. I can safely say that the commentator's fanboying didn't change my perception of the fight. That had enough close rounds that in normal circumstances, I'd be fine with it going 115-113 to either of them. I must admit, I'm pretty salty about Canelo getting a draw and win out of the two fights. It seemed obvious who would get the benefit of the doubt and that is what is most annoying. Also this. Saltiness from me aside, that was brilliant to watch.

    Surprise surprise.
  9. Boxing Thread

    I'm not seeing it quite as one sided as the commentators but for me those rounds leaves Canelo needing the KO. I've got a bad feeling about the scorecards here.
  10. Boxing Thread

    These c***s are toiling to keep a conversation going already. It's going to be a long hour.
  11. Boxing Thread

    Really looking forward to tonight. I am going to be absolutely if GGG doesn't win. Especially if a dodgy decision is involved. I've got a feeling Canelo will win on points though. Not really based on anything in particular, other than Golovkin being such a Bad Luck Brian with all of this. Hope I'm wrong.

  13. St Mirren v Sellick

    Andrew Dallas has to be the worst top flight ref in Scotland. Pretty much all of them love a few bizarre mistakes a game but Dallas seems to just get everything wrong.
  14. Hibs vs Killie

    What exactly do you think they should have done about Lennon getting a ban for that? This should be good.
