  1. Sportsound and Sportscene were in lock step RE Lennon, both trotting out the "passionate" trope and Sportscene completely omitted showing the footage of Lennon verbally abusing the referee.
  2. *Eagerly awaits 26th of Foot's take on Pacific Quay this weekend*
  3. The future looks bleak for South Africa if the level of emigres is anything to go by. Mostly white, professionals are leaving in droves, I met a guy at a work conference who'd been held up at gun point twice in 2017..on the way to work!
  4. The campaign (and I'm confident there has been one) to punt Dembele has backfired. Not one English or European based outlet has ever printed a story about interest in Dembele that they haven't parroted from a Scottish publication and I'm sure the mockery and derision our fans on social media have engaged in has at least sewn some serious doubt in minds of those down south who had even considered it. I can see him seeing out his contract and bounce form one bout of injury to another before going to *insert Championship or bottom 6 EPL club here* on a Bosman.
  5. All I took from the video was that our defence and goalkeeper are actually pretty good!
  6. I can't make it on Saturday RBR, I'll gladly give you my smartcard if you can get out my way (Hamilton area). PM me!
  7. I've always wondered that and what the potential impact of that has been...we know on the dark side they will inflate players values before, during and after any transfer fee and the nett result is that they probably get more for their players as a result. We have more than our fair share of naysayers and negative Nancy's as a support.
  8. Chris McLaughlin was the first BBC Bhoy to use the term "unlawful" the day of the BTC verdict when there was no mention of the word in any of the documents. Jackie Bird introduced Chris and she even had a we go at it too. There's no doubt in my mind that this has been decreed as the position the BBC take on it and like good little bhoys, they've all duly obliged. Top down, publicly funded negative spin.
  9. I can exclusively reveal Tom English's bank of experts: GerryBhoy67, TheClumpany, Declan1888, CelticQuickNews
  10. I'm another one who can probably make all three dates but plumped for Killie on the 17th March. The OF game is usually a full days of activity so the next week sounds good to me. If no one minds I'll bring along a mate who's just taken the plunge on a season ticket after many years in the cold.
  11. I got the Novotel in the City Centre for £45 (it's one of the newly refurbished Novotels). http://www.novotel.com/gb/hotel-1348-novotel-sheffield-centre/index.shtml
  12. Myself and the wife are going down for this but staying over on the Sunday night in Sheffield because I start my two weeks holidays on the Monday..... I'd be happy to catch up with any Gersnetters for a beer or seven :-)
  13. Some points of order: 1) Humans experience directly 4 dimensions of space-time (to give it its scientifically accurate description) The current estimate is that there are 13 dimensions in our universe. The non detectable ones may well be out of our reach but the universal laws of physics would still apply to them. 2) Infinity is a strange concept but by definition it cannot be increased or decreased ie you can't add to infinity or extend it. 3) Our energy does move on somewhere after death but it's highly unlikely that this is to another dimension as we understand the physics of macro
  14. Twitter seems to think the fee for McKay is nearer £1.5m... Isn't it funny how every fee we receive is low balled and every fee we've to pay is exaggerated? It's almost like the papers write their stories to appeal to the manky side of the game.
  15. The media up here were trying to push the "bidding war" narrative to initiate it and rope in other parties (Sunderland etc). I'd be inclined to believe the RO version of events.
  16. I watched him off the ball last Thursday and he was making runs as soon as the midfielders had the ball at their feet facing goal only to have to turn back because they weren't spotted or he was drifting offside. I agree with you, I think there's a really dangerous player in there if the team can figure out how to use him.
  17. He may have a more pressing matter to attend to regarding HMRC's "raid" on St James Park.....
  18. Cardiff ex-footballer Mark Allen shares Manchester City's Premier League success After leaving Cardiff to become a professional footballer, Mark Allen’s life took him across the Atlantic to America before he embarked on a career in the media back in Britain. And now, 30 years after his football career began, he is celebrating a Premier League title win with employers Manchester City. Mark, who is head of academy business and operations at the club, watched Sunday’s nail-biting 3-2 win over Queens Park Rangers alongside club legends and officials as City were crowned champions for the
  19. I'd say that's exactly how this one came about. Justified his appointment right away if the boy turns out to be a find
  20. I wonder if ra Sellick hordes felt the same way about a certain Wim Jansen arriving and signing hitherto unknown players from the lesser (at the time) leagues? We all know how that turned out!
  21. i love your periodic posts about winning the Euromillions dB, I have the same daydream from time to time.
  22. I'd rather have Cummings than Naismith and not for historic reasons, they are on different trajectories. Cummings is a young gallus version of Naismith with it all to prove at the top level and Naismith is looking at his final contract with waning pace and enough money in the bank to relax about his future.
  23. Let's be honest, this season was an abomination and we're all glad to see the back of it but the emergence of the young guns has been the rose among the thorns. Jamie Barjonas looked every inch the first team holding midfielder we've been crying out for last night when he came. I don't think it's overkill to say he changed the game for us, rather than turn and pass back to Wes he looked to go forward and retain possession. Add to that Beerman, Bates, Wilson (who was solid but let down by Toral several times) and I'd throw in Joe Dodoo in to that group as well even although he was useless l
  24. Don't fancy the Number 10
  25. That's the theory Darhter but in reality the "non-dom" schools all have a particular bias towards their own faith and this is usually CoS or generic Christian. We (Secular Scotland) tried to encourage "non-dom" schools to give an equal footing to all faiths eg. have an Imam take assembly in these type of schools and the response was very firmly negative. The whole business of religion in schools needs to be tackled because they are clearly underperforming in the core business of educating kids in the basic curriculum. How much time, energy and money is wasted on archaic superstitious gibb
