Stuart didn’t get to say “Greeeeeeeetings”

He never says that though.

They've taken the ill-informed stuff to a new level with their topic on who should get the 12000 or so Hampden tickets for the Euros. These tickets were sold by UEFA a few years ago and the number of tickets available will depend on the number of those tickets returned but not likely to be many (if any) left for the SFA.

Heard Tam Cowan suggest that St Johnstone fans and Sevco fans should get some for 'missing out' on their league cup and league wins respectively.

I have just listened to Sunday’s show and Tony Watt is brilliant on it. I have totally changed my opinion of him after listening. He started by saying that he is trying to improve the way that talks and his interaction with people, and absolute credit to him for saying that. But his absolute star turn was when the show came back from a music break and Stuart Cosgrove said that Tony Watt had been having a go at them for now going softly on anything to do with Celtic or Rangers. Of course the two of them denied that, and said that they had to watch what they said because of social media. Tam really threw the toys out of the pram and had a real go at basically how shite Tony Watt’s career had turned out, although I know that he will say he was having a laugh. He wasn’t. And that was telling about 15/20 minutes later when Tony Watt, who had obviously seen the pair’s reaction close up in the studio, said that what he had said had affected Cowan and Cosgrove, which they just glossed over. Well done to Tony Watt.

I had a listen (well I made liberal use of the skip forward function) to Sunday's show after @YassinMoutaouakil's reveal about Watt having mentioned Alexander being vegan and cards on the table, it's the first time I've actually listened since the 90s and the show itself is genuinely unlistenable but Tony's great value. In his time so far at Motherwell he couldn't be further from his stereotype. 

That said, in my mind Tony Watt just blurting out "Why are you vegan?" to his new manager is a very funny exchange in my head.

He was on Danny Denholm's Lower League Ramblings last summer and was really good.

Honestly delighted he's signed up on a new deal as at points this season he's pretty much the only player who's looked like he's given a f**k.

Tony Watt has always come across as a bit daft but fundamentally a good guy. He gets lots of bonus points for bodying the Tories at every opportunity too.

TW came across very well when he did a thing on AVftT last season.  

Doesn't take himself too seriously.  Bit of character.  I like him, not caught last weeks OtB yet.  Will give it a whirl tomorrow.

Tam Cowan now deliberately winding up @DA Baracus :lol:

 

I agree completely with him. Penalties are not a lottery.

Not OTB, but I'm going to moan about it on here anyway.

On BBC Scotland, they showed our Cup Final from 2008 in that Cup Classics thing they're doing on Friday evenings. Among the talking heads, they had Stuart and Tam.

Their ignorance is truly boundless.  Stuart made a hopeless guess at Dumfries' population, while Tam in particular, had no real recollection of the game.  He didn't know the score from it and it was clear that nothing rang bells from watching it.  

Now I get that the game would stick more in the memory of Queens fans than for anyone else.  You'd think though, that someone interested in Scottish football, someone who basically earns a living from it, might be more clued up.  He absolutely gives yer das a worse name.

Surely most folk their age will remember the time Old Rangers threw away a two goal lead against wee QoS in the Scottish Cup Final.

I didn't even get to see the game, but it's still pretty memorable.

Nonsense, he was quite clearly playing a role for dramatic effect.

Was pretty obvious to me that he was at it.

A tit maybe.

You credit him with more knowledge and sense than he ever displays.

Could never go Chick Young years ago but I actually don't mind him these days. Hearing him dedicate a song at the end of Sundays show to his son who passed away gave me a lump in my throat.
