    Smisa's Shame

    To be fair to Cockles, (a practice for which I am not best known), I honestly can’t recall ever reading a post of his that was as you describe. can you post links/examples?
  2. Traffic problems and rail, too... Looks like near the old gasworks... :unsure: https://www.glasgowlive.co.uk/news/glasgow-news/glasgow-trains-cancelled-paisley-gas-16016931
  3. Quite correct. It's as useful a statement as "Brexit is Brexit".IE No use.
  4. Just watched the final episode of Shetland 2019 Series 5. Thought a baddie in it looked familiar. Played by Derek Riddell https://www.google.co.uk/search?biw=1600&bih=708&tbm=isch&sa=1&ei=mXeSXO3wKK2CjLsPqpOKyAM&q=derek+riddell&oq=derekriddell&gs_l=img.1.0.0i10i24.4360.6796..8863...0.0..0.68.652.12......0....1..gws-wiz-img.......0j0i67j0i5i30j0i24.kPp-naJcTPU#imgrc=r0HhGgtjOYB9uM:&spf=1553103057138 Here's the Baddie's Daddie. Ian Riddell. Powerful Buddie full back, took no prisoners, got into the team soon after the 59 cup win, IIRC. Got U23 cap, moved on to Berwick Rangers and in a shock cup victory, happily beat another Rangers that was apparently a big deal, at that time. Happy Days. https://www.google.co.uk/search?biw=1600&bih=708&tbm=isch&sa=1&ei=mXeSXO3wKK2CjLsPqpOKyAM&q=ian+riddell+st+mirren+footballer&oq=ian+riddell+st+mirren+footballer&gs_l=img.3...7926.9840..10248...0.0..0.88.582.10......0....1..gws-wiz-img.A8554aug43Q#imgrc=y4kSslDfSL_AWM:&spf=1553102758425
  5. Did you post the above on Monday at 1.09 pm?
  6. Good job there hasn't been a f**kin stupidly timed winter break or there could have been an unnecessary pile up of pressurised fixtures before the split.
  7. I’d guess that would depend upon the added rule’s... er.... magnitude...
  8. I have simply, of course, been testing your power of recollection. "Adam was called up by national manager Alex McLeish to the Scotland squad for the first time on 11 May 2007 for a friendly against Austria and a Euro 2008 qualifying Group B match against the Faroe Islands.[99] He made his debut at the Gerhard Hanappi Stadium in Vienna on 30 May as a 67th-minute substitute, in a 1–0 victory.[100]He then made his competitive debut as a 77th-minute substitute in a 2–0 win over the Faroe Islands at the Svangaskarð stadium in Toftir on 6 June.[101] " I was fully aware that I'd been in the... ahem... Svangaskarð grun, as we called it... You missed a lovely evening...
  9. Most scots were based in Torshaven.... though I booked a turf roofed, ex whaling cabin at Nesvik (for which my wummin has not really forgiven me, yet...). and... I dunno Toftir.... Tórsvøllur, though....? https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tórsvøllur I was at the new grun, you were at the auld grun....
  10. Other nails in my Scotland fan coffin were £40+ tickets for a FRIENDLY match v Brazil at the Arsenal stadium, where Levein(?) deployed his usual goalkeeper and 10 defenders formula. Scots can do pessimism, but we have to at least give it a go. Boring overpriced depression... only alleviated by being there with the London Saints... and also the SFA. I won’t subsidise those corrupt basturts anymore. on on the other hand I enjoyed a later Torshaven match at that glorious stadium in the sky. Scotland won and CharlieAdam made his debut. We stopped at the roadside and had some beer, waving to the line of fans in cars as they wound downhill, till we were left, in the gloaming, at peace, with curlews and red necked phalaropes pecking nearby, amid the moss and heather surrounding us.
  11. You're not alone TPAFKA Jersey 2... "I’m just about at the end of the road of caring" I'm now a long way down a dirt track that started after the road ran out for me, dwindled into a single track route and become clogged with mud. There aren't any real national teams anymore. Foreign managers and foreign players turn out for anyone. Might as well watch Champions League... which I've also given up on as it is also dictated purely by money. St Mirren is still my favourite niggle...
  12. To be strictly accurate this is a NEW Firm as the Old one ceased to exist with the demise of the old dead bigot club. surely?
  13. I wondered what the other shoe would be when it dropped... Last night I was at the (Ian Rankine/Rhona Munro) Rebus play It was awfy good. Solid drama, funny, well acted. Very Scottish. I asked a fellow punter as we were leaving the theatre how much of it he understood. He grinned, "About 70%, but I could follow the story, great acting!" We were in Kingston Upon Thames. I missed the telly, as usual.
  14. Think a couple of the BTB London Saints were also invited. Dunno if they accepted tho I do know they have been to hospitality at times.
