    Sorry mate but you are not getting this. There is a deep rooted problem within the playing staff. Or another way to say it is an unbalance Jack Ross inherited that. Mary f**kin Popkins could not wave her magic wond to fix this sorry state. Disney could at least rub it out and start again but this is not the magical world of dismay sorry Disney. This is the sad life of reality.

    Mid a bit worried about saying this. The manager has taken over a team who clearly are not good enough. My question is how is Gordon Scott going to address this. I'm willing to add bit more to my subscription to help the manager, is Gordon. If not I will pull out of fan ownership. A clear out is needed in January let's see who has balls.

    3 goals up Jack changed the tactics rightly for me given the makshift defence. Bottom line we got what we wanted 3 points.

    Indeed, didn't play our best but got the result, isn't that a characteristic of a good side?

    The bandwagon rolls on. 
    Special mention to two players in particular who are rarely in the limelight. First is Baird. Before the game most were thinking Dobbie and Lyle would give our defence a torrid time but I thought Baird was excellent with his own game and marshalling McCart who had a good first half but was caught out a couple of times in the second half.
    And Second is Todd. Must be frustrating for Todd, Kirkpatrick and the two Stewarts getting little game time but I thought Todd did well and he was playing in a position he is unaccustomed to as well. Well done guys.

    Josh todd had great game so far. He was breathing out his arse coz he’d just done a wee maizy run and kept the ball superbly not for the first time.

    Really? He's been very impressive for me.  Not wasted possession once and linked play up very well consistently.

    I have been unemployed for a while now. Next few weeks my own venture into self employment will open. Received no help financial or otherwise. I had to wait months to get planing for various changes where they were fast tracked in weeks for the same thing. That does not bother me talking to other businesses i fully understand their full concern when it affects their income. Or full time employees of the Bakers end up losing their full time jobs.

    Does it matter what colour or faith anyone is find that a strange comment ? The point is money given out which has an effect on local businesses and why locals do not receive the same help ?

    Probably my longish post can be misunderstood. On Bute there are Polish , German , Far East, coloured citizens living on Bute i and everyone else I know have no problem with immigrants coming to Bute or Scotland. The problem here is high unemployment where locals and not given £15,00 & 30,000 to go self emplyed then all the back up help also. Next they are opening businesses that already exist it has to be remembered this is not a big town it is a small community where businesses struggle, feelings will run high if there has to be lay offs of locals due to a down turn in takings.
    If help is put forward for them to open businesses then they should be something new and constructive to the island. As I wrote there are locals who would give there right arm to be given that sort of money to start up self employment. Its not just the money it's the guidance and help along with fast tracked which locals do not receive. The two hairdresser shops takings are already down. The Bakers will be hit next. This has been handled wrongly given it is a small Island with a small population.

    As it turns out London tube bomber  Yahah Farroukh visited his family in Rothesay im sure i have seen him before . Wonder now if some sort of security will be introduced by Cal Mac.                                                                                               In Rothesay there are two male hairdressers more than enough for the male population these two owners are very disappointed that A Syrian was handed £15,000 to open a hairdresser in the town the help did not stop there as gudiance and fast tracked by the council to get the shop open.   Two local hairdressers reporting their business are being affected.  Its hard to understand for outsiders the lack of money on the island due to high unemployment. Very few have full time jobs lots of locals have 2 to 3 part time jobs.                                                                                                                                                                               Next up  bakers , the island has its own bakery,  Electric Bakery producing Bread , rolls, cakes , various savoury pies deliverd through out the island to shops and cafes. Electric Bakery employes 10 full time workers. Mount Stewart sell Artisn bread to the public baked in house. Co-op also bakes bread  in house.                                                                                             Next a local restaurant owner took ill and put the Waterfront up for sale dropping the price to £80,000. No idea who purchased the Waterfront but now another Syrian has been given £30,000 to open the Waterfront as a  bakery.                                                              Bute has a small comunity the Scottish government seems to have a complete lack of understanding what a struggle it is for local businesses. Yet throw money at refugees to open two business to compete  with local businesses in a high unemployment area is astounding.     Yes we all know Syrian refugees need refuge and not all of them are bad. However there are plenty locals would cut there arm off to get £15,000 never mind £30,000 to go self employed.  There has even been a brand new mini bus purchased to take refugees to prayers.  Nothing here is not walkable . From what i hear think this will be a seat the SNP will loose sadly.
