  1. Calling Cards of Morons

    Eddie May managed to do this in his post match interview today when Chuckie asked him for the 375th time if he wanted the Hibs job permanently. "Eddie May's not a football manager and Eddie May will just be hoping, with fingers crossed, that something happens very soon." Double third person name drop; with skills like that maybe the Hibs board should tell Eddie May he has no other choice.

  3. c***s on the road

    FBWs Full Beam Wankers; not the one's who don't have the time to switch them off on bendy back roads, but the roasters that purposefully drive about with them on in normal night time conditions. c**t behaviour of the highest order.

  5. Statement FC 2.0 v Airdrieonians

    Seeing your colours and given the context, I was just reminded of Paul McGrillen too. I remember seeing him play for the Bairns and was pretty amazed when he signed for us at the time. He probably didn't have as high a standing at Airdrie as he did at Falkirk and Motherwell but I thought he was tremendous. Again, it puts all the silly, non football focussed nonsense into perspective.

    A big enough side to merit the disco light treatment tho.

  8. Statement FC 2.0 v Airdrieonians

    When I signed up for my free month I had to pick a team. There were the pro14 rugby teams, some US sports and then Rangers or Celtic. No other Scottish teams so definitely a 'big team' broadcaster. I'll not be renewing after my free trial. Imagine having to select Edinburgh Rugby as your team. Ha! At least yer 'team' won big last night. It must've made up for the disappointment of Jimmy the Kitman's decision to call off the real game! I never noticed that when I signed up, although I have the non-free version so maybe my perk is not having to choose from a limited group of elite global sports franchises. All for the knockdown price of £9.99 p/m. I only signed up as I knew i'd be working tonight and wouldn't get to the game. Contract will be binned in around 45 mins.

    Premier Sports isn't much better; more of a 'Big Team' bias than 'home team' bias, mind you.

    Great run down the right from Stewart too and excellent saves from Bain. We have shots on target! Yaasss!!

  13. Statement FC 2.0 v Airdrieonians

    This was my secret Santa present from work last month (excuse the background untidiness); someone who I work with is clearly astute as i'd lost my original from the game but can't remember telling anyone at work! What an amazing day that was (apart from the result, obvs), and an even more amazing season; I think I managed to get to every home and away match that season including most reserve games too. The 4-1 away to Raith in the QF was a particular highlight. As a 12 year old away at the match with yer pals on the supporters bus, the adventure was magic enough, but to see us dismantle a very good Raith team that day in the manner we did made it even sweeter! Then Hearts at Hampden in the semi; just when I thought days out at the football couldn't be any better, up steps Stevie Cooper to put us into the final! I had a wee tear in my eye reading back through the program at Christmas, not just for the nostalgia but seeing pictures of the great footballers who's lives have since come to an end. Stevie Cooper, Phil O'Donnell, Tommy Burns; it really was quite upsetting. But life goes on and the memories of being a Junior Diamond at that time will never leave me. We'll give it a go on Saturday and any sort of positive result will hopefully give the players and management a massive boost going into the second half of the season. I hope everyone has a cracking day out regardless!!

  15. Car advice

    Sorry for this spurious nonsesne if you already got this issue sorted. I had a very similar issue with my 1.9cdti Vectra, last month; loss of power, plumes of shitey exhaust gas etc. I tried the Italian tune up to no avail. My old man is mechanic and we looked at a few different things. Ultimately we ended up removing the EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) valve, dismantled it and completely cleaned it (it was completely clogged with carbonisation), and then chucked it back in. The car is now running better than it ever has. EGR valves clogging up seem to be a real issue with turbo diesel engines from the mid 2000's onwards Might not be the solution you need but it's worth looking at, there's plenty of stuff on Youtube and Google on what causes it and how to remedy it.
