    Just watched the SC highlights, and thank God that Kelty aren’t in L1 this season, as they would absolutely batter us.

    They really look as though they collectively know what they are about. 

    A number of ex Falkirk players on the squad who would raise their game against us.

    I’d like to give MacLean the benefit of the doubt, having not been able to see the incident on the stream.

    Given how poor the ref was today, I wouldn’t be shocked if he got it wrong.

    I've just seen the red card on sportscene,  I know the camera was a good distance away but that looked very harsh

    Only time will tell whether Rennie is the right man or not. As I said I have my concerns regarding his status and exposure in Scottish football and that then leading to his ability to get the quality of players in the door that we so badly need at the moment. 

    Houston had status and exposure in Scottish football. The quality of the player he brought in wasn't always great as you so often stated.

    A fourth season in league 1 would be disastrous for the club financially- I suspect we’d see a substantial fall in ST and PATG income.


    This line has been said numerous times over the last 10 years or so yet we still have over 2500 season ticket holders. 

    With the new board in place now, next season will be their first full season in charge a good marketing slogan (remember the whole "our time", "my club" lines) I reckon we will see at least the same number of season ticket holders for next year

    Wife's first day back at work today after the Christmas/New Year break. She's had breakfast, she's showered, hair and make up done, lunch is made, jacket and shoes on - she's effectively all ready and her next step would be to leave the house and get in the car, she's already running a bit late. She starts panicking "oh no, does the car need defrosted" (it's still dark outside) and proceeds to stand in the living room with the blinds open, big light on and staring intently to ascertain if the windscreen looks frosty. Just leave the house woman and you'll see if the cars needing defrosted!

    What she means is why haven't you been outside to check for me and scrape it so I can just jump in and drive away

    Smiths an athlete isn’t he. He actually looks like he struggles to breathe.

    I wouldn't expect any of the semi finalists to be running any marathons any time soon

    This is boring.

    Agreed. Next set is crucial and needs to be won by Wade for this to be close to being a contest. Been a walk in the park for Smith so far

    The Dark Remains by William McIlvanney and Ian Rankin. 

    A Laidlaw book started by McIlvanney before he died, and finished by Rankin now. Very good. I often find McIlvanneys books a touch dense and inaccessible. This is much easier to get in to. Much more of a Rankin book. Almost a Rebus book with the names switched around. 

    I finished this about two weeks ago and found it an enjoyable read, probably due to Rankin's involvement.

    Started reading Strange Loyalties about a week ago and really struggling to get into it. Tempted to read something else and come back to this later

  9. Brilliant match, Wright stuck in there and got the job done. Get it right up you Rydz, that will teach you to be disrespectful towards an opponent. 

    Hopefully Price beats Smith then Wade and there's no English player in the final

  10. Rydz has been brilliant and completely deserves his lead but the camera caught him joining the Scotland get battered shite, hopefully that comes back to bite him

    Is there an English sporting crowd that isn’t wall to wall arseholes?

    I used to think a lot of the crowd singing was banter. Maybe I'm just old and crabbit but a lot of the crowd behaviour comes across as "England hooligan behaviour" nowadays

  12. Clayton v Smith is the game of the night without question. Two players just focusing on playing darts. 

    Anderson v White was a poor quality match but really enjoyable. White should have won but got carried away going for tops and somehow hit double 5 (might have deflected from another of his darts). He blew it. 

    Price v Van Duijvenbode was one sided. Price got the job done but it was either really hot on stage or Van Duijvenbode was ill given how uncomfortable he looked and the amount of water he took on, was he in the same pic as Van Gerwen and van der voort?

    One of the most ridiculous sights of the restrictions era has been people masking up to order at the bar, inches away from unmasked drinkers on bar stools.

    Christmas Day was the same. Needed a mask on when walking around but could dance on the dance floor without one yet when going to the toilet and having to walk across said dance floor put the mask on as soon as you get off the dancefloor as if the dancefloor formed some kind of barrier against Covid

  14. This is something my other half does that really annoys me and tonight I've found out it seems to be a trait from her mother: 


    Puts sharp kitchen knives in a basin of hot soapy water "to steep" meaning if you haven't caught her doing this you'll put your own hand in and risk slicing your hand. But they don't think there's anything wrong with that or see what the danger is

    Without being disrespectful to your mother and forgive me if I’m generalising, but it’s easy to be in favour of restrictions on nightclubs and the football etc, if they don’t effect you.

    Won't hear me disagreeing with that. I suspect its the scaremongering and words used like Tsunami, Tidal Wave, record breaking that have got some of the older generation scared to leave their houses leaving then with nothing else to do than watching news coverage all day which causes them more worries despite being triple jagged

  16. I had a conversation with my mum earlier today about the restrictions and sadly she's very much "I'd rather she overreacts than underreacts". Point blank refuses to acknowledge that Sturgeon may have got this wrong and has overreacted too early. 

    I imagine she's in the minority with that, my partner and her family have been pro Sturgeon all during the pandemic but they are also now starting to question the figures and Scottish Govt reaction right now

    Mental Health is nothing but an overused buzzword and Tesco will always need shelf stackers

    You sir are a pr!*k, go take yer face fur a sh!te

    Without being pedantic, Mental Health is two words and a well known contributor to early deaths in young men. But you knew that
