What is the latest news on the redevelopment of Meadowbank , and City's current standpoint/opposition  ?   

The Council are going to build something like the Aberdeen Sports Village or more likely the John Cumming Stadium, Carluke because athletics is such a major sport in Scotland and they really paid lots more ground rent to Meadowbank Stadium over the last 25 years than ECFC (cough). I'd have quite happily sent the athletes to ponce about Saughton Enclosure but the running track there is apparently not good enough for the poor darlings (so lift it then and LTHVFC could improve the stadium a bit better).  Oh and some genius seems to think the field athletes can hurl their hammers, shots and javelins at the proposed 4G in the middle without causing damage.

The John Cumming Stadium, offering magnificent views of the mighty Carluke Rovers...
For some reason, and I don't know why, City seem to think that having one turnstile, a tiny stand with about two rows of seating in it and looking across an 8 lane track isn't good enough for Scottish League Football. Ungrateful b*****ds really.

When I win the Euromillions I shall find some place worthy of levelling  for a football ground (like the Merchants Golf Course) and build the all-seater super-duper Bam Park there instead. And serve only vegan pies like FGR because I'm a cnut.

McDonut was interviewed for the Pars reserves job last time round. Could be in the running for first team job I hear and has a release clause for full time. Jim Jeffries will put in a good word too with his old club.

Yup, heard from someone close to Edinburgh that he's fairly high up on their shortlist. I don't doubt that they will put together a good financial package for his replacement if he does leave, though.

None ever touched him because his football ideology was acid. How many players did he progress for other 'bigger' clubs? Darren Jackson and Martin Cameron?

 

Allan Maitland by far a superior part-time manager. And Lennon not far behind. 

We had all three and Christie was by a very significant distance the best. The other two you mention not in the same league. 

Regarding Hibs, in his book he says he was interviewed in 1986, 91 and 96 and believed on all three occasions that he had the job, only to miss out. I don't think there would have been concerns over his perceived style of football but I do suspect that he was such a strong minded character in football that there might have been concerns from some directors. His way or the highway.  

The reason he didn't go to a middle of the road full-time outfit was not due to a lack of interest in him but that it wasn't worth his while financially with his school pension. He consistently said it would need to be Hibs to convince him to have a crack at full-time. I seem to remember he was in for the Raith job late in his career after retiring from education but they made the quite ridiculous call to go with Gordon Dalziel.

Would have been fascinating to see what Christie could have done with a bigger club given what he did with part-time clubs.

Terry Christie — IQ of 140

Gordon Dalziel — IQ of my cocker spaniel.

I'm reporting this post for inference of canine stupidity. Dugs are far more intelligent.

Is that using Stanford-Binet or Cattell? For Christie obviously. Dalziel would be Crufts.

Middle of the road, full-time outfit. If ever a sense of entitlement required detecting from Postal Utd well-wishers was required, there it is.

I do recall Christie getting under Clyde's skin massively around the end of the last century. Good you are over it now though.

Actually, he got under our skin from about 1986 onwards, with all three lower-rank, largely inconsequential clubs on quite a regular basis, too. 

 

However, during all those trouncings dished out very regularly at venues from Dens Park, McDiarmid and Brockville, to Love St, Firhill and everywhere else in between throughiut the 2000s, including giving Alloa a four goal start in the playoff, you didn't really figure much. 

 

The reference of Hibs as "middle of the road" is the equivalent of Clyde supporters labelling Manchester United as "the great under-achievers". 

 

Another club we've also actually beaten, in an illustrious history.

Still absolutely raging :lol:

Reference to middle of the road full-time clubs was very obviously not about Hibs.

Apparently we’ve made an enquiry over Blair Henderson. Any idea what he’s like? Is his contract up in the summer?
