  1. I think what Neilson was saying to his player is that if Armstrong cuts onto his left foot, stick your hand down by your knee to stop the ball and it'll be fine - the referee will think it hit your midriff.
  2. My money says Tazz's Faither / uncle / brother / brother-in-law (one of the same).
  3. Correct, and conversely pre season results and performances under Mckinnon were poor. I'm sure we got horsed by East Fife at Methil and David Bates was torn a new one.
  4. You can also wear it when you go abroad on holid..... Maybe not.
  5. I think he was initially talking about Falkirk under Paul Hartley when they ditched their youth academy and followed what they called the 'Brentford model' by signing young guys who had been released by bigger clubs down south. McKinnon succeeded Hartley but couldn't do anything to halt the decline.
  6. You're right in that there was a lot of dross in Smith's squad, but Barjonas and McGuffie were McGlynn signings.
  7. I'd be amazed if they charge for a £20 walk up punter. There's a lot of goodwill towards the club from the fans at the moment, but a 25% price hike for games against Alloa, Arbroath, Morton, QOS et al will see it evaporate fairly quickly. I'd be inclined to pitch it at £18 per game with the exception of Hearts, which should be £35, as they're an absolutely massive club and don't deserve to be in our league whatsoever.
  8. Especially if his empire biscuit had a green jelly tot.
  9. According to Hearts' own forum the boycotting of the two games at Stark's Park is going to cost us £300,000 and bankrupt us. That's 7500 of them each game at £20 a pop excluding VAT. Is it any wonder the fuckers went bust if that's their level of arithmetic?
  10. I'd imagine if Hearts and Partick have 'lost their case', they wouldn't be due anything in compensation. Hopefully they're ordered to pay all legal costs and they are then hammered by the SFA for breaching the rules.
  11. Probably something to do with the fact he was rumoured to be signing for us on more than one occasion, but his dream move never quite materialised.
  12. I've never met Simmons, but he always struck me as someone who never totally loved being a footballer. He often gave the impression that if he could have earned a pound a week more stacking shelves or working down the pit, he'd have been happy to do so.
  13. Nah, you're all right. Michael Doyle was a bit of a p***k in Grange Hill. Can't imagine he's changed for the better 40 years on.
  14. Terrible news. Although he played for a few clubs,even as a Rovers fan, I always associated him with Falkirk more than any other. One of your own. RIP.
  15. That means he's been out of football for two years less than Rudi Skacel when we signed him.
  16. Miller apparently due to sign for a French 2nd division team. I'm sure it was one of the clubs involved in the relegation stooshie in France.
  17. Should we be getting remotely worked up about signing / not signing a guy who scored 6 goals in 29 appearances in league one last season?
  18. If you think this is bad, you should have a gander at the reconstruction thread on Fantalk.
  19. Great effort from your guys to make it to Tannadice today on the Winners' Walk. Hope they all have a well deserved few pints and a safe trip back north, and most importantly that justice prevails this week and you get your promotion.
  20. I think Neilson said 'he' made no attempt to sign Nisbet. Maybe it was Hearts' sporting director, that Mrs Budge said was an essential appointment prior to appointing a head coach / manager, who approached Nisbet.
  21. I hope you're right but imagine if someone had said four years ago, when Mckinnon was striking a deal with Stephen Thomson on his club mobile, that Rovers and Arabs fans would be having a wee love-in on a fans' forum and up in arms together about the despicable behaviour of another club's board and chairperson.
  22. It's a dual purpose wooden spoon. Not only is it an award for being the worst team in their league, but Mrs Budge can use it to stir shit.
