KC = Kansas City?

Like the song covered by the Beatles "Going to Kansas City, bringin' my baby back home" ?

Sadly Hamilton has never been immortalised in song, unless you count Gene Pitney's "Town Without Pity".

Yessir, that's the one. That's where I'm from. My picture is our baseball team.

Tbf Hamilton does get a mention in The Great Escape.

True, forgot about that. Wee chef from Crossroads mentioned the racecourse?

Good point but I highly doubt we’ll build on it.

Hopefully I’m wrong but if we don’t take 3 points from 1 of the next 2 games it’s lights 100% out IMO as St Mirren and Hibs will both turn us over.

There were encouraging signs against County as well tbf. Maybe this time will be different.

Yeah, today means f**k all unless we build on that performance.

Cant say I'm too confident as we have previous for not doing this, but we'll see.

Interesting read, though admittedly I don't grasp all of it.

So the club is involved in tons of charity work in the area, and that also somehow benefits the club financially?

Goodwill !

Couple of boring points (more points than Rangers got though eh?):

- Ian Crocker said that Ryan Fulton signed an extension

- The Jamie Hamilton situation is interesting. Playing so well, has already had interest but out of contract in 2022. Do teams wait for him to run that down? Will we get a shite fee because of that? Will he sign an extension with a generous release clause (like Turnbull at Motherwell)?

Put it this way, I personally don't believe we managed to bypass the stringent bank security processes and managed to transfer a million to some random in Nigeria. Extremely convenient from a club that up until recently would not accept card payments and purely dealt in cash.

 

I'll take my tinfoil hat off now 

Premature !?

Fixed that for you.

There was a small bar I used to go to in KC and that my buddy's wife used to work at that was cash only. We did the math and figured the owner was making around $7K a week under the table.

Your I.R.S. is not very good

Did the owner '' loan " your friend's wife her salary ?

H.M.R.C. rules ( as I head off for ... )

Hamilton, Anderson and Callachan were all outstanding today I though. Although the whole team played well TBF.

Hamilton looks like a real prospect. Hope we manage to handle his contract correctly and not end up with a Lewis Ferguson situation.

They interviewed Fulton pre match and he said he had signed a 2 year extension. So summer 2023 (obviously the club don’t put out anything official). Reasonable forward planning by the club he’d be fine as number 1 choice if we go down, However he’d probably be happy to sit on the bench again if we get a better replacement in if we stay up. And he is getting better? Maybe? I’d still maybe have him slightly at fault for the goal today.

As above he is contracted until 2022 so if a team wants him in the summer they’ll have to pay. If it gets to a situation next January he’s still here and hasn’t signed an extension we should be able to get a better compensation fee if he agrees a pre contract elsewhere. As he will have played a lot more games by that point than Ferguson ever did.

Sometimes yes, sometimes no.

Pretty sure she was paid under the table, but don't know for sure.

Ah right. I missed all the pre-match stuff so found it weird that Crocker had some obscure exclusive. I thought he'd be a disaster as number one which he definitely hasn't, but he doesn't go long without chucking one or two in. Maybe he's just an average goalkeeper.

Are they really dodgy like?

How do you think they managed to get a last minute goal against the Rangers that was not

1 )  really harmful to winning the league

2 )  not in a Cup Final
