  1. A very one-footed creative midfielder if that goal against Blackburn is anything to go by.
  2. Please clarify.....are you talking about the show ?....or the posters on here who bang on about Cowan's musical taste ad nauseum ?
  3. Got any specific example of Broadfoot misrepresenting what others have said ?.....or using rhetoric and soundbites? I think he's usually a worthwhile contributor with his inside track on the workings of the Scottish football authorities. Certainly more knowledgeable than some of the ex-pros on matters to do with the governance of the game , as opposed to actual football chat.
  4. The amount of time and effort spent in posting about Tam Cowan’s taste in music on here every week seems to be far greater than the time devoted to it on Off the Ball itself. Can’t say I’m a fan of the Engelbert Humperdinck/Tony Christie type stuff that he likes. And some of the old Motown/Northern Soul stuff that Stuart Cosgrove clearly loves doesn’t do much for me either. But so what ?.....that’s their taste. And a relatively small portion of each show is given over to their musical tastes.
  5. Seriously ?..... Leaving aside the question of whether being co-presenter of Off the Ball counts as sports broadcasting.....he's become an unfunny ignorant bore who re-hashes the same anecdotes and opinions on an increasingly tedious basis.
  6. She said Dundee United twice when she was meaning Dundee. I don't think I've heard that from a Scottish football pundit or presenter before. Sort of thing you expect from an English-based show. And all she had to do today during the commentary game was score updates from the other games every 15 minutes or so...... God only knows what an arse she'd have made of trying to deal with Open All Mikes
  7. Bound to have been mentioned in relation to the golf ....but shouting out something inane a split second after a player hits a shot. I'm not sure what it is the morons are shouting, but I think I could make out a shout of "Mashed potatoes !!" in an American accent (probably put on) immediately after Dustin Johnson struck a tee shot a wee while ago. Deserving of the spiked sole of an old golf shoe being swiftly administered to the moron's knackers.
  8. Fascinating insight into an example of tactics in a military conflict. But still no explanation as to what it was that Glass made a pig's ear of in relation to the substitutions in that game.
  9. Your explanation there puts quite a different slant on it , compared to your original statement which was simply that he made a complete pig's ear of the substitutions. Which , to me, implies that you think that either he took off the wrong players or that he should've put on different subs. However , I doubt if there were many fans with these complaints at the time. And not many complaints about the team selection at half-time when , even though we hadn't played well we had pretty much controlled the game and were 1-nil up. And , in any event , even if there hadn't been so many changes , the nucleus of our seemingly strongest XI went on to demonstrate many times throughout the season that they were perfectly capable of losing matches. I'm not sure it's fair to call the substitutions a sign of panic , given that it was only roughly midway through the second half and it was 1-1 at the time. And substitutions don't have to be tactical. On that occasion it was more a case of taking off players who were having a poor game and replacing them with ones who would hopefully, perform similar roles , but better. And the fact that Raith scored about a minute after the substitutions wasn't really down to the changes but rather due simply to Gurr's failure to complete what should've been a straightforward clearance. We lost that tie because we fell right out of the game in the second-half ....not because of the substitutions.
  10. What was wrong with the substitutions he made against Raith ?
  11. Has he?....... Must’ve been ones that I never heard then.
  12. He doesn’t make a secret of it ..... by the same token Richard Gordon never made a secret about being a Red.
  13. Ach , I don’t mind him. He doesn’t overdo the Hvn arselicking. And he’s probably the best of the rest of the regular presenters of Sunday/Midweek Sportsound in recent years...... (Jane Lewis and the insufferable David Currie being the others who spring to mind).
  14. Straight choice between The Bubonic Plague Arena and The Black Death Arena for the name.
  15. Not the worst by any means , despite the unfortunate similarities with Elgin Shitty. The red adds a sorely needed touch of class. The Book Depository’s looking not too bad , although the grassy knoll’s a bit overgrown
