  1. I like the co-op meal deal. I'm fond of the chicken skewer things with sweet chilli sauce that comes under the bracket of snack. Spicy chicken pasta box with coleslaw in it that I can't remember the name of, those chicken skewers with sweet chilli dip and bottle of Pepsi Max for £3.50.
  2. You're talking about a club with a worldwide fan base and in particular has a strong tradition of Scottish players. I was at the game and have no leaning to any English club, I took my son along for the spectacle. Just because Liverpool can sell out Murrayfield is not a reflection on our game but a reflection on how big and far reaching Liverpool is.
  3. Yes. I will favour any Scottish club against any other club in Europe and want to see all the Scottish clubs go as far as possible. I still feel this but to a lesser extent with Rangers and Celtic. I don't overly care about co-efficients and am sceptical as to how much of an impact these actual make or the amount of money coming into the Scottish game from teams in Europe, it is purely a case of national pride on my part.
  4. 1. Dundee United 2. ICT 3. Dundee 4. Dunfermline 5. Partick Thistle 6. Ayr 7. Morton 8. QotS 9. Arbroath 10. Alloa Arguing with myself whether I think Alloa or Arbroath will finish bottom. Decided on Alloa as I expect the usual good start from Arbroath still on that wave of positivity and Alloa still finding their feet with Peter Grant. Hopefully it's an open race right with 3 or 4 in it going into April, I don't think any team is stand out at this stage. Might come down to who identifies what they need and recruits the best in January.
  5. It's absolutely true what you're saying, however Autism is not a mental illness. Though mental illness is more common in people with ASD. As an autistic adult myself, I reckon some you're likely right with some of the stories but I reckon kids, mainly boys, can be right weird without any help. My son is also autistic and schools are much better equipped than they were for autism nowadays. I was likely a bit odd at school, I would talk to people but never had any close friends and seek more time on my own than with others. I played football and that pretty much was my whole interaction with others at the time. I think that's more typical of autism than some of the frankly chilling tales on here.
  6. I'd be quite happy to leave ourselves exposed and watch us compete 4-3, 5-4 wins and losses with £20 on a BTTS single every week.
  7. True, lack of communication and midfield not tracking their runners.
  8. Rudi Skacel wearing number 51 at Dundee Utd really bothered me. What a cock move that was.
  9. Edgar Davids wearing number 1 in midfield at Barnet is probably the closest I can think of.
  10. In fairness the new shapes club's have started using in the past decade or so you do often see the number 4 in midfield sitting just in front of the back 4. But traditional it's just wrong. It doesn't really matter. Nisbet will be first choice striker this year and was always going to be, but he'll be assigned his usual number 15 squad number. Ian Wright used number 8 for majority of Arsenal career which I think breaks the mould even more than someone who picks a high squad number though is a regular starter like Pirlo's 21. I'm sure William Gallas wore number 10 while playing centre half for Arsenal.
  11. The line isn't great, but ultimately it's Beadling mistake.
  12. Just enjoy the now. We're playing exciting attractive football and the players look as if they're loving their football. What's not to like? It might change aye, but that's to worry about another day.
  13. Turner was a different level from everyone else on the pitch tonight. Comrie was excellent as well, some energy.
  14. My Airdrie supporting mate considers Josh Edwards an attacking wide player rather than a traditional left back. Airdrie played with 3 centre halves last season with Edwards playing in that left wing back role, so wasn't as burdened with a defensive role as a more traditional left back on the end of a back four would.
  15. Djorkaeff caused Comrie problems. I wonder how it feels to have had a really easy time of it for an hour or so and then being faced with someone with pace who'll suddenly test you, can't be overly easy to switch into that sort of the game halfway through the second half.
  16. I was pleased with Nisbet. I thought he was just a finisher, but he was always looking to drop in and give the midfield or defence an outlet to feet. Coley looks a good player, for someone who hasn't played a great deal of men's football he knows the wee tricks about when to slow down and invite contact to nick a foul here and there. Can see us playing counter often and relying on Coley's pace. Scully looked a bit iffy here and there, early days though.
  17. In terms of my grocery shop, beans have to be Heinz or Branston. Brown sauce must be HP. Kitchen roll, I am loyal to Might Big in B&M. It's £2.99 or 3 rolls but what a roll of kitchen paper it is. You could dry yourself coming out the shower with one. Everything else I just get the cheapest I can find.
  18. DKD was the scorer at QotS who went into the crowd etc resulting in more time being added on wasn't he?
  19. It was a really good day. Paul Paton was on good form joking around with the kids as well. Crawford was really good too, spent a good few minutes talking to my boy about school and that. The young lads done really well too, I'd have hated having a few hours of primary school age kids wanting to talk to you when I was 18 or 19. My 6 year old loved it all.
  20. Paul Paton was talking about his role as one of the experienced pros at the club and mentioned that we've a good captain in Ashcroft but that he's in to help and set an example for the young guys as well. Nothing official ever said but I think that's decent confirmation.
  21. John Hartson played for West Ham that summer. Found this on a West Ham site. I can't find any info on the Coventry match except it was Coventry won 1-0 and it was the Saturday after the West Ham game.
  22. Matt le Tissier scored a screamer of a free kick in front of the old Cowdenbeath end in the mid 90s and I'm sure there was a friendly against West Ham around the same time that a teenage Rio Ferdinand strolled through. EDIT: had a wee search for the West Ham friendly and it totally passed me by that Frank Lampard also started that game. Would have been a Harry Curran and Frank Lampard battle in the middle of the pitch.
