  1. Celtic fans have allegedly vandalised seats today, as reported by The Sun: https://www.thescottishsun.co.uk/news/3891494/celtic-kilmarnock-seats-damaged-rugby-park-chadwick-stand/

    Please don't conflate predicting trouble with desiring it...
  3. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    LOL A parody account! I nearly bit, too...
  4. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    You are the one who made the original assertion therefore it is for you to prove. The DUP are pro-Brexit, and they're the most popular Unionist party. I believe Sinn Fein are pro-Remain...unsurprisingly.
  5. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    Really?! Care to substantiate that?! I know Northern Ireland voted against Brexit as a whole, but pretty sure the majority of Unionists were in favour of it.

    More creative! Better banter all round, I'd say...not quite sure about the chevron, though.

    How was that not clear from my original post? Irish reunification would be a huge problem: - the Northern Irish economy is dependent on public sector jobs. - there are a huge number of Unionists who would be reluctant to join with Eire against their will. - there would almost certainly be a resurrection of the Loyalist paramilitaries who would potentially bomb Dublin and make East Belfast a no go zone. In my opinion British observers will be required to ensure that her citizens are not mistreated by Irish authorities, meaning the imposition of curfews, and other totalitarian tactics would not be tolerated. I personally know ex- and current British servicemen who have told me they would join with Ulster paramilitaries to fight an oppressive Dublin regime. Overall, it would be a nightmare for Dublin, and one which the Irish would be wise to avoid.

    Had to laugh at the away day guide to Berwick...not sure whether it was on here or elsewhere. Young teams hanging about to fight 'Jocks'.
  9. Club Badges

    Not really, eh?! I could understand why a Clydebank supporter might be upset by the circumstances surrounding their club's demise, but their supporters let it be sold. So f$%k them, they let their club die. They've been reformed as a junior outfit, which is clearly where they belong.

    About whether Great Britain is the mainland? Well the six counties of Ulster that form Northern Ireland are a much smaller territory than the island of Great Britain - which encompasses the whole of England, Scotland and Wales - therefore I would consider that consistent with the definition a quick Google search provides which is thus: mainland /ˈmeɪnlənd,ˈmeɪnland/ noun a large continuous extent of land that includes the greater part of a country or territory, as opposed to offshore islands and detached territories. "the mainland of Europe"

    The fucking mainland!! Revoke your account Aye. The 'fucking mainland'! What's your problem...?
  12. Apologies if this has been done before, but I would be interested to know the history and significance of each club's badge and, if applicable, the colours worn. I'm a bit old school, but I love to think of the club as an ambassador of the town/community in which they play. I think this is why I am becoming disillusioned with the bigger clubs, as they no longer represent their communities...but I digress. So what does your club's badge represent?
  13. Fair enough. I think we have sailed far enough off topic now though.. Love the pun! I have never been to Forfar, not sure how much I'm missing, but would be good one year to visit all the grounds and towns.
  14. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    What in the name of f**k is this? My thoughts on Irish reunification...
  15. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    If they ever get unity, I hope the UK government does the right thing and quickly brings the civil service jobs in Northern Ireland back to the mainland - as I understand around 1/3 of them work as civil servants. Plus I'd be interested to see how they cope with East Belfast, and the loyalist communities over there. We would need observers to make sure their human rights are respected...though I'd imagine the Irish government would struggle to cope with 3/4 million people who are vehemently opposed to unification, many of whom would support the loyalist paramilitaries. For a nation of five million, it'd be an interesting to see how they'd cope.
