The bus on the other hand takes over 4 hours (yes, FOUR)

That amazingly averages out to <25 mph.

That's because the bus goes into every single hamlet on the way through to Aberdeen. A total joke of a service. I got it once when I was a student. Never again.

I'd rather fucking walk to Aberdeen that have to get a bus.

If I was going to be walking, I'd rather it was away from Aberdeen.

It's effectively triple that.

A 100 mile round trip from either Aberdeen or Inverness would only get you to Keith (I did that commute for a few months), so it's a 200 mile round trip from Inverness to Aberdeen.  However, the A96 is a dreadful mostly single-carriageway road and I think most people presume it's dualled all the way, when the reality is that you'll be stuck doing 30mph behind a horsebox at Pitcaple, a tractor at Keith, shoppers in Elgin and a trail of scone-hunters at Morgan McVeighs.

It's a measure of Dunfermline's season that bus journey times chat is a highlight of a match thread.

If I remember correctly wasn’t it Rory McAllister who scored the goal to send the Pars to relegation from the premier league? I might be wrong


Also first post hi

It was indeed.  After a Richard Hastings daisy cutter free kick to equalise for the Caley.

Would you rather a crowd w**k?

Then again that's more a Falkirk (scrabbling for relevance) kind of thing.

The vast majority of people who don't like crowd wanking seems to be supporters of clubs with very few fans.

Could be just a coincidence I suppose. If my team had recently won the Scottish Cup and finished 3rd in the top flight, I doubt I'd care.

I love having a wank in a crowd.

I took that bus once and it was absolutely hellish.  We must've visited every bus stop in the north east.  About three and a half hours into the journey we came by the Royal Infirmary and the airport.  "Ah," I thought, "not long now."

We didn't arrive into Aberdeen bus station for another two hours.

It was, but a big reflection as I recall.  The Hastings free kick that we equalised with was a farce.  Straight down the throat of Dorus De Vries who inconceivably threw it over his shoulder.

He had a nightmare that day but we'd have been down weeks earlier if it wasn't for his performances tbf.

Aye he was incredible for us, moved to Swansea as there starting keeper which was no mean feat for a relegated keeper, went on to have a good career. 

At half time in that game we had moved upto 11th for the first time in months, at full time we were relegated. Football can be cruel.

Best player to play for both clubs?

Nat Wedderburn or Danny Devine IMO

There’s not many to pick from, however Andy barrowman would probably be my pick from those I’m aware of only 1 to play top flight for both?. Unless Brewster was player/manager ?

Shaun Rooney obviously just misses out...

Barrowman was absolutely garbage for us.  Brewster was a good player but a poor manager.  What about Graham Bayne?
