  1. Sadly, I've had to have a good think about this lately. My cancer is terminal and at 48 my race is almost run. Just a few months left according to the docs. I could keep the mourners hanging around listening to My Bloody Valentine b-sides and early Parquet Courts singles all day but I don't think they'd appreciate it. Some punter once said it's better to burn out than fade away, so that's what I'm going to do. Thanks P&B, it's been a lot of fun, but it's time to sign out and bid you all goodnight. Get every lump and bump checked out before it's too late and don't wait to do all the things you want to do in life. Lots of love and peace out.
  2. From 1985. Here's to the next 36 years of YLT.
  3. Four pages in and no sign of the King. I'll sort that.
  4. Good to see Soots wearing an Arbroath badge on his lapel this afternoon. Giving the fitba team a run for their money in the most unexpected story of the year stakes.

  6. We could have played all night and not scored. The same could be said of Hibs. A winning goal befitting a dreadful game. Still though, unbelievably, halfway through the season, we sit 10th. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that our mid-table Championship level jobbers would be 10th at this stage. We can still do this. If our disinterested American owner can be arsed, McPake out, Ross in.
  7. Sadly, for you guys, I've heard you're playing a slightly better team than us.
  8. Did he really just say Lewis Stevenson is a "Hibs legend?" Over to you, Hibs fans.
  9. Take a drink every time the Tom English sound-alike says some ordinary 10 yard pass is "wonderful". Under the table by half time.
  10. Portland were the better team over the course of the season but NYC the better team on the night. Pleased for Ronny. He always seemed too nice for old firm nonsense. Sad for Portland though. They, along with Nashville and SKC, were amongst the most entertaining sides this year.
  11. Decent start. Nothing cagey about this.
  12. Aw Mikey, say it ain't so. Another great off beyond the blue horizon. RIP.
  13. I've always been a vinyl junkie. Spotify is just something I never gave much thought to. You cant get too obscure with it but most of the time it comes up with the goods.
  14. At the start of the year I was amongst the top 0.1% of Spotify haters. Then I got ill and was surprised to learn that I couldn't take my record player into hospital. So I got on my niece's Spotify and... it's ok. I embraced a small piece of the technology and my head didn't explode. So apparently I have listened a fair bit to Windy & Carl, Celer, Alex Albrecht, Huerco S, Sven Wunder, Low, Tangled Shoelaces, Horsegirl and GAS.
