  1. Already well on the way. Bus was delayed and diverted because of the bridge restrictions. On the positive side we don't have to worry about the delay reducing pre match drinking time. Quite a few of us on the same boat. Could end up a messy day🤣
  2. As we were leaving the ground yesterday the Social club was filling with locals heading to a bingo night. The queues outside were growing so I think they are getting a lot of income from non-footballing events in the community.
  3. I think we deserve to be punished but I think the SFA have gone OTT in awarding Hamilton and Motherwell Points. That punishes everyone in the league not just us. Even a points deduction for us would have been fairer, as awarding 3 points to Hamilton and Motherwell could get Livingston or Ross County relegated or get Motherwell into Europe ahead of Hibs. Authorities playing a strange game
  4. Club Statement The club operated honestly throughout the whole process and will review its position before issuing a further response. Who's idea was it to tell the truth????? Is that why they have now appointed an ex-cop.
  5. Just found that out. Thanks for the update. Earlier twitter rumours suggested he had been away for 4 days. Usual unsubstantiated twitter nonsense. Celtic can be absolved but as you suggested earlier it reinforces the suggestion players aren't too bright. Hopefully their will be no more lunacy from the players and the fans can get back in the grounds soon. That's probably when the real nonsense will Start. 🤣
  6. I think the insinuation is that Scottish Football will be getting the red card, not the next team. There have been many valid and some silly comments regarding Covid, football, disciplinary action, Public health and conspiracies but it looks like wee Nicky is backing herself into a corner and the next breach could well be the end of the season for everyone. I can accept Aberdeen may have an excuse but I find it hard to believe Celtic could misplace a player for 4 days before a match and then play him. It seems a bit odd that he would miss training etc and still play unless he took time off and told lies. Surely Celtic can't be that naive. Maybe the club is faultless but it seems a bit odd. I take it Bolingoli will get a police visit and pay at least his £480 spot fine. I say take him to court and bump him for the full five grand. As HSS suggests he is as thick as $#^? in the neck of a bottle. He deserves it. Anything worth watching on St Mirren TV on Wednesday night?
  7. They automatically renewed mine too. I didn't realise I had an auto-renew option and no one told me I would get it free for three months as I already have a season ticket before they took my subscription. On the bright side I suppose that gives me three months to work out the answer to your question. Only in football would anyone buy 9 Months for the price of 12. There is no logic to this game.
  8. The Thor video Was interesting. "I heard there was a lot of fighting in Scottish football, I'm here to fight. I'm an explosive player" You gambling types should maybe check out the odds on a red card
  9. Don't worry folks. New amendments are getting put through to bolster all the hate crime laws and give everybody the chance to be offended. Your right to be offended will be increased to include ageism so all this talk on this thread of things like being being born in 1942 or even claiming someone is young enough to be a student cannot be reposted in any way that could cause upset. The normal requirement to prove guilty intent is not required to obtain a prosecution under hate laws. If any one calls you a codger, crumbly, whippersnapper or millennial you can play the ageism card and get them wheeched off to jail whether they meant to insult you or not. Unfortunately I am still unprotected if some calls me baldy and folk from Greenock can still be described as smelly but freedom of speech is definitely getting restricted to stop people insulting anyone whether they meant it or not. Absolutely splendid news, the new Hate Crime and Public Order (Scotland) bill also repeals Blasphemy so we just blame God for everything now. Brilliant, Anne Budge can now just accept it's God fault Hearts are going down and stop blaming us. OBIKA!!!
  10. No idea Ricky. Like everyone else I haven't seen any pre-season friendlies. Other than a third hand report from Stevie Mallan that Morias and Foley were outstanding during the Hibs game. I've not really heard much. I don't do twitter and the club haven't put on any match reports I can see. We do have some signings though and Goody is making positive noises along with Tony's usual world beating predictions. Alan Stubbs is bemoaning the fact Tony didn't give him a magic hat has made the news too. In fact there has been more coverage of that than any of our pre season games. I'm missing the football big time and I don't think TV coverage of empty stadiums will do much to scratch the itch. Still what is, is what is. COYS
  11. Fecks sake for once I find myself agreeing with shull. Looks like I'm in a minority but the away strip is rank. It looks like it was designed by a drunk guy with a paint brush. Did I meet a Joma rep one night in the pub. Nightmare.
  12. Shull give it a rest. Football fans come in many guises. For those like you who see their team as some sort of leading light through which the virtues of society should be set for all to see. I can understand the pain. Prices should be fair; integrity should present, and good moral standards should be set for all to see. Its almost a religion to guys and gals like you and all you see is corruption, deceit and disappointment. What a let down Mate. I feel your pain. Well I don’t. Most folk I know give passing thoughts to their team’s politics. Bigots excepted but probably most of them are in it for the football too. We go to the football for fun. Yep it’s a weird concept but it can be a great day out. Meet your pals, catch up, have food and drink. Travel to weird exotic places and have some banter and a sing song. They go to the match feeling part of something bigger than themselves. That’s the key thing. We can all be billy big fish in our own little ponds of life but there is nothing like the excitement of been part of a team and donning the black and white on a matchday gives you an identity in the wider world where people normally wouldn’t give you a glance. The adventure starts with the planning and ends when you collapse on your settee on whatever day you return from the game. Winning is sublime but it’s not all about winning it’s about taking part. So, for you and your fellow mourners of Scottish football, who want to dance on it’s grave and wallow in its failure. I’m sorry but the game still means a lot to most of us. We work hard for our money and through football we give a lot back to all the communities we visit and the town we support. We don’t just waste it on Football clubs. We support the local businesses who supply food drink transport and anything else we need on our travels, even Taxi’s. More people use the trains on Match days across the UK than they do for work. Being a Buddie, an Arab, A *** , a Hibbee or a whatever, is a life style. Embrace it. It’s got to be better than being a moaning faced, Victor Meldrew. Did you know Richard Wilson (below) was born in Greenock. It's funny how you made me think of him but it sort of makes sense.

  19. Yeah leyton Orient came up with the idea and its caught on. Skybet has sponsored it for 25k. I believe they're taking bets and even live score are displaying the results. I think the intention was for club players to participate but since fans have become involved its now professional e-players who are representing some of the teams. Hopefully Kyle has been practising and does us proud. There's no other football on at present. As a resulting of watching this I also saw F1 are doing similar stuff with golfers, drivers, footballers and E sport F1 players. It actually looked quite good and the graphics were better than FIFA 20. The commentary wasn't bad either. This e sport stuff will be big in the future. Players are already making a few quid. Its a bit cheaper for the fans too. Shull will love it.
  20. Saints game confirmed for tomorrow at 7pm . Kyle McAllister representing Saints. Brave boy, as a lot of Professional E sports players are taking part. Check out Livescore if you don't want to watch on Twitch. They are giving live updates FFS.
