    I expect him to go to hibs. Was offered a trial and until wages assessment had been completed. Furlough and wage deferral is prob only reason they aren't able to offer a contract to him just now but will be higher than what we can offer anyway.
  2. Good signing. Had concerns over who would we might end up with between the sticks but he will do a good job for us. Beginning to shape up nicely and if we get a strong back line we will be in for a decent season. Would love to see another strong centre half or two come in quickly and Jakubiak come back to us and will be happy to see who follows after that. Getting a good feel about the type of business Jim and co is doing.
  3. Aye, but what if it is only phase 1? 😦 What if Phase 2 is the result of an EMP sent from space by an Eastern Country on around April 29th or shortly thereafter so it can be blamed on the 1998 OR2 asteroid fly by. What if that EMP damages our infrastructure including communications and transportation so heavily that food and water shortages soon follow. What if this is part of a global war games that has been going on for decades and that we should be worrying about something more than a nuclear or viral threat to our society. Unlikely, probably. Impossible, No. Tried to get odds on it at Willy Hills but to no avail. 😄 Thought you might like a read for the weekend. https://www.airuniversity.af.edu/Portals/10/AUPress/Papers/LP_0004_ELECTROMAGNETIC_DEFENSE_TASK_FORCE_2_2019.PDF
  4. Don't you mean deep impact? Anyway prefer season isn't completed and Hearts can just pop off to a lower league. If it were to hit Ibrox we might have many millionth of a millisecond for a quick laugh.
  5. A bit of conspiracy info for you. https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/coronavirus-doomsday-asteroid/
  6. If it is of interest you can follow the track of 1998 OR2 which if it speeds up and changes course then it would be an extinction level event. Extremely unlikely but still a small percentage of a chance. Last updated on the 25/03 as it currently stands. https://ssd.jpl.nasa.gov/sbdb.cgi?sstr=52768&orb=1
  7. Yep, we were and still are unprepared to control the virus. Advising people if they had symptoms to self isolate but didn't have to contact 111 was and still is a huge mistake. Without identifying potential cases, confirming and tracking contacts the longer then the longer we will be in the shit for. Why experts are supposedly puzzled doesn't give me much hope. Need to get in front of it as quickly as possible and be proactive rather than reactive. Much more testing required and tracing contacts. What is expected to be closer to a 100,000 cases in the UK is still likely to double due to supermarkets, public transport and human behaviour. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/mar/22/germany-low-coronavirus-mortality-rate-puzzles-experts
  8. Frampyy7 on twitch is Brentford player and trying to show it via his twitch. Haven't heard anything from the buddies and latest list of teams doesn't seem to include the buds. I am limiting myself to a beer every 1m 30s so I don't have a mega hangover in the morning (or later in the evening).

    Not really into cars but thought I would post this as was just looking at the tesla cybertruck which will be on the market next year. Looks a bit different to the norm and quite fancy one of these to pop round to Aldi's. https://www.tesla.com/en_gb/cybertruck
  11. Obika has been shite but his performances have been getting better. He has had 2 decent halves now and having Jak alongside him has definitely helped. Time for Morias and Andreu to pull their finger out as see them dropping down the pecking order. Andreu in particular has been a disappointment and expected a lot more from him. Think it will be a more settled lineup and formation going forward which will also help as long as Jim doesn't feck about with it at half time.
  12. What was more enjoyable to watch? The league cup win or popping the arabs down to the first division on penalties. Must admit I celebrated more at the latter.
  13. Need to be great to beat Silky Ilkay's effort against Hamilton last week. Any of the 2nd, 4th or 5th from youtube vid would do the trick.
  14. My money is on him scoring our goal of the season. Got a great left peg and can bang them in from distance.
  15. Suppose this also goes for the board advertising around the pitch as well? Any ideas on income from that?
  16. Fair point. Fair play to PP though who also agreed to not having their name on the shirt. With the Ladbrokes Scottish Cup and previous history of betting and alcohol firms in football in general it would be nice to see a move from these type of businesses but the SFA should lead the way. Money talks but responsible sponsorship should also be a key factor for a club going forward. “We know our place, and it’s not on your shirt.” PP
  17. Thought Jimmy (Gillespie) Calderwood covered most of the questions quite well in the video. Personally the most important factor for myself was 1) The financial stability of the club and 2) The financial stability of Smisa now and going forward. I don't think dropping the current contributions to BTB is a great idea and would prefer continuing along the same lines to create a bigger emergency pot if push came to shove. I would have liked to have seen a vote on contributions before this deal is voted upon to provide some reassurance on SMISA's potential financial position in the future. Can't see a big betting firm or the likes sponsoring us now or in the future and don't really want to see Mecca Bingo on our shirts. It is most likely to be local firms as it has been in the past.

  20. Yep, Gordon has a guilty look on his face and looks dressed for the part.
