  1. More fixture farce

    8 of our first 11 games last season were away fixtures.
  2. Yoker news today

    James Ross who played with us previously at CH has started training with us as has Greg "Tiny" Maitland. Kerr Allan should be back from injury this weekend (hopefully) & Steven Howie should be back from his holiday by now. At home to Maybole on Saturday 2pm KO.

    We were seriously understrength on Saturday, we only had one sub. All things considered it wasn't a bad performance & we only lost the second goal with a couple of minutes to go. We are needing a centre half, a centre forward & an attacking midfielder.

    A disappointing home defeat to Glasgow Perthshire last night (1-2). We were never really in the game apart from the opening period of the second half. GP scored a fluke late on in the second half & we never seemed to recover from it. A Kyle Callaghan free kick shaved the post in the last couple of minutes but was as near as we came to getting an equaliser. A poor performance compared to how we played on Saturday but I'm sure the boys will pick themselves up for Saturday's away game at Port Glasgow, home of "Scotland's Finest", El D Tonic Wine.

    The game wasn't as close as the score line suggests, Wishaw scored their third in the 97th minute, the Whe Ho were always in control of this game. Next up is Glasgow Perthshire on Wednesday at Holm Park, KO 7.00pm

    I do a passable version of Achy Breaky Heart which usually gets the Slosh dancers up..

    I attended all three cup games plus the friendly against Johnstone Burgh. Not overly concerned about the results so far but the fact we've had four players sent off before the league season starts is a tad worrying.

    Nothing to report although there are a few trialists taking part in pre-season training.
  10. Met my ex-wife at a rock concert in Kelvingrove Park in 1994. Got married 1995, I left her 2005, divorced 2006. Met my last gf in 2007 on a bus. She was with a friend of mine & we got to know each other for a few months before we started going out. With her for nine years before breaking up after a blazing row on my birthday two years ago. Still miss her but c'est la f***in vie!!!!

  12. Tidy Scottish Newsreaders

    Gail used to be a regular on Reporting Scotland a few years ago.
  13. Belhaven do some lovely bottled ales as does Williams of Alloa. Czech lagers are the bees knees & I quite like Menabreda, a nice Italian lager. Tennents is just fizzy pish water & I've spent my life avoiding it whenever possible.
  14. Yoker news today

    Graham George resigned as manager at the weekend. I was told on Monday morning but was asked to hold off until today, the reason being there was a meeting at Holm Park last night so the players could meet the new management team which was swiftly put in place after Graham's resignation. The new manager is Maurice (Mo) George (no relation) & his assistant is Brian Mulholland, who played for us at the beginning of last season. Both Mo & Brian have played at the top level in the Seniors & Juniors & will be bringing a more professional outlook to the Whe Ho next season. A positive reaction from all present (including myself)
