Has Steve Harmison just stopped exercising completely after retiring?  

Looks like it.

He was part of that Ashes team in 2005 wasn't he? I think drink featured prominently in their team bonding procedures.

Still dunno who the black guy behind him is. John Regis?

We have all suffered from various levels of the fear 

but I always wonder just how heavy Freddie Flintoff’s dose was the day after that ashes bus parade and being blootered inside downing street with little to no recollection of actually being there  🤣 Must be a shout for one of the top 10 fears of all time

That would either be Marcus Rashford or Maro Itoje.

Standing next to and behind Charlie Nicholas, it's nice* to see Ron Atkinson being rehabilitated.

It’s Gladstone Small, former England cricket player who famously has no neck.

Unless it's been taken out of Rangers hands, this isn't on as fitba needs two sets of fans. Rangers need to give an explanation. 

 

Due to Covid restrictions, there will be no away fan ticket sales for our trip to Rangers. We are awaiting approval to show the match in our bars at Fir Park.

Running scared of the only team to score in every league game this season?

Think Rangers will do the same to us when we come to Ibrox in a few weeks time.

Hope not, I really don't see why we can't have away fans in 51,000 capacity stadium.

Agreed.  If it's our decision it's a poor one and needs justified (though I couldn't imagine how they could explain it).

Would it be overly cynical of me to suggest that this decision has been made to maximise home fans on 'flag day'?

I don't think the SPFL would allow the exclusion of away fans simply to accommodate more home fans. However, I imagine Rangers have done a Celtic and are manipulating the fact that they need to move season ticket holders to use it as an excuse to achieve the same result. Poor show. I'd hope they at least allow PPV.

I guess the few hundred away supporters that you get in these type of fixtures are a pain for Rangers and Celtic but using flimsy covid pretexts to keep away fans out is a really bad precedent to set and needs binned ASAP. Motherwell did it in the league cup groups at a time where licensing conditions were tougher but it still felt wrong to have games with no away support then as it does now when there is less of an excuse to do it.

I’m not sure if this has anything to do with the decision but the police and security certainly seem to treat this fixture as a slightly higher category ever since the pitch invasion at the play off game 

notice it more at fir park when they seem to cut off the front few rows in our end and then the police go rushing in like storm troopers to stand infront of whatever set of fans are celebrating a goal . Can Motherwell fans confirm as this doesn’t seem to be the case when Celtic play there with the front few rows being cut off whenever I have watched the fixture on TV?

I do understand what you mean though i work with a guy from South Africa who everytime he sees me will greet my with "My N****" It's almost a term of endearment however despite my race i still find myself clenching my teeth a little hoping no one overhears despite the fact neither of us are white.

Why don't you tell him that it makes you uncomfortable?

Helander out injured, McGregor struggling for Celtic…

Said earlier that Rangers and Celtic would come back to the rest of the pack this season. If ever a diddy team is going to make a serious title push, it’s going to be this season.
