We did tend to under utilise a lot of top class wingers as a nation. John Robertson, Davie Cooper, Peter Weir, Ralph Milne, Peter Weir as well as Crunchie and Nevin all had a lot less caps than James Forrest despite every single player I listed having far, far greater capability as players than Forrest.

Standard was far higher in those days too mind you. Dumplings like Lawrence shankland wouldn't have got near the Scotland team back then. Grant Hanley's got 45 caps and that for me says it all about the standard of the Scotland sides these days.

Jaze off to Morton unsurprisingly with the imrie link to Martindale. 
 

At least that squashes one rumour.

Have I missed something? I thought it was just Jai Quitongo and Grant Gillespie they'd signed today?

*Just seen the story on the daily record website, disappointed we've not got him back as with a preseason behind him he'd have been a great addition.

The 1974 World Cup Squad were so unlucky and player for player possible the best we have put on the park.

I have a theory that multiple new signings will be announced by a catwalk style show at the same time as the kit tomorrow hence the wait since the last announcement. Really holding out hope for it to be true.

Sounds familiar, of a time when………oh no, the shivers down my spine!

Please no

Long as they pay more than one instalment of the money who cares.

The term crunchy carrots is a pretty odd and funny one, but as far as sponsors go it seems alright. If it had been in some garish colours etc it'd be howling, but with it being all white it could well compliment the top as good as any sponsor. 

 

You also just named a stand after a bloke you called crunchy, he might even have liked carrots.

At least the blue looks like a proper shade of navy blue, and no sign of any pin stripes, or patterns with tyre treads, swirls, diagonals, hexagons, sparkles, etc etc...

Another potentially decent kit ruined straight off the bat by a ganting sponsor/ logo. Will reserve full judgement for seeing the strip in its entirely but not off to a good start

Crunchy Carrots is very Nathan Barley - a dug is in the employ, i bet they have a fussball table too. 

When is someone going to get a hold of Jim Ratcliffe and get Ineos on the shirt and on the stadium for a few mil. They own NIce but pollute Falkirk. He owes us!
