  1. She's been going on for weeks about booking fast track at Edinburgh Airport for our holiday. I've repeatedly said if she wants that she can book it. 

    She tried to book it tonight using the ipad. The website froze after she put her card details in, cue mass moaning and asking me what to do next. 

    Needless to say it took me a whole 90 seconds to get it sorted on my phone. Thank you received at all?

    God's 1st few games for us were frankly poor but i remember standing on the terrace at Rugby Park screaming CROSS IT CROSS IT,then going or scoring is good as well🙈

    I said similar with Latapy at St Johnstone. The play was down the opposite end and he's beaten a couple of defenders then taking his time over his next move. I'm screaming cut it back cut it back. He then smashes it in the roof of the net 🤣

    I think that was the game we won 3-0 or 3-1, Pedro scored and Kevin Cuthbert had to be stretchered off after a knee in the head from his own teammate

  3. Had a meeting via Teams yesterday to discuss productivity. Manager goes on about how the team productivity has dropped to "crisis level" while working from home and asks what distractions we have that's stopping us working productively. 

    She's clearly not noticing - or choosing not to notice - one member of the team sat in her living room with Wimbledon on in the background and making no effort to hide it!

  4. Took in the friendly tonight. 

    I know it was only a friendly and there's still 2 months of the transfer window to go but my god we are so toothless up top. There's really nothing there to work with. We have to keep the ball for ages to make an opening but we seem to need those doing the creating to be the players finishing off the chances we do create. 

    Defensively we looked reasonably sound with only Darryl Duffy's chip looking the only way Stranraer were scoring. Being honest I wouldn't have minded seeing that go in as it might have woke some of our players up. 

    Yeats/Yates the clear standout, hope he gets signed up. Tonight was the first time I've seen Jaime Wilson, how did Holt possibly consider him an upgrade on Keena and Dowds? He's probably worse than Taylor Morgan

    Can anybody confirm if the Stranraer player was given a straight red or was it two yellows? I only saw the red but I read an earlier comment about two yellows. Thought Mackie was lucky not to go too. 

    Oh and the Stranraer manager and assistant are a pair of utter bellends.

    Nothings been mentioned but I can't imagine there won't be a PATG option. I'm planning on just walking up so worse comes to worse i'll give you a boosty up over the fence for the first half and the second half we'll switch round?

    Sounds a plan. You're welcome to the final half hour of continual substitutions and I'll get the wee man away home to his kip.

    f**k sake, of all the tinpot things that define this club, Paul Slane coming back out of retirement to play for them is the most tinpottiest for sure.

    Could see that coming a mile away as soon as Ferry was announced as manager and the podcast as the club name. Only shock is it took so long to confirm.

    Probably but losing 2 days wages could see a lot of people unable to pay for food or bills.




    Most unions have a hardship fund where members can go to for money to cover the loss in wages while striking. It might not cover the full loss but those on strike are grown adults capable of making their own decisions, they know full well the implications money wise. The fact they are striking knowing the loss they are taking shows the strength of feeling among them all.

    My youngest has her primary school visit today. It’s a small school and a lot of the parents know each other, for better or worse. 

    Some of the other parents are complete arseholes, and I avoid them. They are obsessed with the school and try to constantly be in about its business and there’s a horrible gossipy school gate culture. 

    Anyway, another wee girl from some particularly tricky parents were putting their youngest in at the same time for her visit. 

    Problem is, it’s been all over the internet that this child has COVID. This was announced on social media on Sunday, complete with confirmation that she has a temperature. I’m annoyed but my wife is totally raging.

    Are we right to be annoyed? 

    I'd say that you do have a right to be annoyed but at the same time don't believe everything people post on social media.

    I’m hearing Sibbs might not be too far behind him. I sincerely hope that’s not true though.

    If this is true then you'd think it must be the Imrie connection from Livingston and Cameron Blues has probably also put in a word

  10. She removed her work uniform from the washing machine around 8pm last night (i can't understand how the washing of the uniform couldnt be done this morning and hung out but that's her call as its her stuff) and put it in the washing basket which was then left at the bottom of the stairs "to go up later" and put over the airers. 

    She will take washing from said airers, fold them into 3 different bundles (hers, mines and our son's) and leave the bundles on the bed in our spare room. 

    Does anybody else's partner do stuff in stages? I think her mother probably does similar

  11. Tickets purchased this morning to see Kevin Bridges at The Hydro in September. 

    Had a great night a few months back watching John Bishop, hoping Bridges is the same (I know he will be)

    I'm really starting to struggle with the podcasts. A lot I used to listen to have now went into the "That's plenty!" category recently. Old Firm Facts, Open Goal went a long time ago. My Scottish football podcast intake is down to Off the Ball and the one with Craig Levein and Amy Irons, both are completely guest dependent.

    Likewise. For a while I listened every week to Open Goal, The Terrace, Football Daft but I'd say since March time I got fed up of the same voices making the same 'jokes' so I decided to give myself a break from them. Can't say I've missed them much. 

    I like Sacked in the morning but its very much guest dependent.

    I don't mind Parenting Hell with Rob Beckett and Josh Widdecombe or Sh*gged Married Annoyed with Chris & Rosie Ramsay but again very much I listen to them if I'm in the mood to, I don't actively look for them

    In a roundabout way I'm having a similar issue but not with a child but with a puppy. I still work from home whereas the wife is physically out at work everyday. Puppy is 10 weeks old and I'm a bit out of my depth having never owned a dug before. Anyway, doing my bit by taking him outside every hour, after a kip, after his scran etc but he'll have the odd accident in the house. Wife goes radge when I tell her he's pished/shat once or twice in the house "ffs!! he's not going to learn if you keep letting him do his toileting indoors, I hope you're taking him out straight away and putting him in his crate when he's sleeping, are you training him during feeding times? are you giving him praise where appropriate? are you giving him sufficient physical and mental play?....and why is the hoose a tip?". Honestly boils my blood when I'm trying to work as well. Summer holidays soon (wife works in a school) so can't wait for a bit of respite during the day. 

    Mine's the same with the housework as I wfh 3 days a week. She thinks I've nothing better to do than washing, hoovering etc instead of working. Then on the days I do do some of these she moans about me having to work till later at night

    As long as it's not whoever makes Rangers* strips. I saw them in an Airport shop and they looked really cheap, nasty and poor quality. 

    That's Castore is it not? I agree they look poor

    If we were to go back to a Hummel strip again then I'd consider buying one for the first time in years. The 91? season strip is my favourite ever

    Yeah, I was sent to do a maintenance there yesterday and after fannying about for an hour looking for keys from the council, I opened the shutters to realise that the place was fully abandoned and had definitely been broken in to. Anyone know why it shut down?

    Something to do with the cost of replacing the heating being 600k+

    I take a beavers group on a Friday night. When i finished, I texted my teenage children to see where they were. Got a response, fine, braw. One said he was on his way back from kirkcaldy with his pal, the other out on my bike. I left it there, that is all i need to know
    She is nightshift and shortly after i had texted the boys, she texted me and asked where they were. I told her where they both out, one of them was heading back from kirkcaldy. She then replied asking why he was in kirkcaldy, who he was with. I said his pal who we know. Reply “who is the pal?”
    The youngest one was out on my bike that I adjusted for him to go out, she then starts asking does it fit him. Naw, i sent him out on a bike that doesn’t fit him and risk breaking his neck.

    What is wrong with just accepting my relaying the information i was given, which is more than adequate that you need to know and that teenage children will tell you?

    On a slightly similar note, I took our 6 year old son to see The Lion King at the Playhouse yesterday. She is currently in Cala D'or with her mum and sister as part of her 40th birthday. 

    Walking back to the train station after the show I've held his hand due to the number of people walking the same way and other parents doing the same with their kids. Speaking to her last night by phone and not only did she ask me repeatedly if I held his hand, she also repeatedly asked him. Could hear her mother in the background saying similar. Even her dad got fed up and sarcastically asked them if they thought I was stupid and would let him make his own way back.

    The nurses had a go.

    Followed by rail staff and now posties.

    I wonder who will be next in line to demand a massive pay increase?

    Maybe the police?

    Fire brigade must be due a strike again surely.

    It's not the Posties, they work for Royal Mail which is a separate entity to the Post Office

  18. Took my 6 year old son to see The Lion King at the Playhouse this afternoon. I've never really been into it and he has only seen it on DVD. I didn't know what to expect but I have to say it was absolutely brilliant. I have no energy left to sit through it again tonight let alone be involved in another performance like the cast and crew.

    Would definitely go back again and see something else (we have a flyer for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory next year).
