  1. Great watch...…………………. (if you liked trams that is!). 1. I remember that it was never a good idea to get your bike tyres stuck in the tram lines - you always fell off 2. When you got to your destination the driver / conductor always came through the gf and 1st floor and altered the backs of the seats so that you faced in the direction of travel. 3. What happened when there was thick snow on the ground, did they not run? 4 What happened in the pea-soupers did they just crawl along at 2 mph?
  2. I watched the England Vs Kosovo game last night in its entirety and it was a great open game of football to enjoy. It got me thinking why can a country (so relatively new to international football as an individual country), can be so technically ahead of Scotland. In just about every department they were ahead in actual ball skills, closing down the opposition, chasing everything and organisational set-up. At one point Hoddle said that it would be a joy to play with this team, and then later it was said that when they don't have the ball they look quiet or even tired, but the moment the won the ball back they became alive and inventive. Forget the idiots in the studio who said at half time that England had many more goals in them, it was a really inventive Kosovo, who made their 'star' hosts look like a team that just turned up for the second half and thought they had done all the hard work after 45 minutes. It was great. So why can Scotland not produce a performance like that...……………. P.S. Not many of the Kosovo team play for well known teams!
  3. I get the Facebook / Google thing, as there has been more than sufficient info out there telling us that they collect and sell the info we all allow them to have, but I thought that cleaning out my machine each day would reduce that. I also have noted as others have commented elsewhere that it's annoying to google something and for the next three of four hours every website you open has an advert for that product / service. Yes you accept it as part of life's poor tapestry in the browsing world that is the internet, but Legia Vs Rangers on the B&W website, surely out dearly beloved Mod can moderate that content, otherwise any mention of Rangers, Celtic, Aberdeen or Hearts will see adverts for any / all of these teams appear on our beloved moaning platform!
  4. So what you're saying, basically I'm stuffed whichever way I turn...………… I must start watching porn more often then as it might change my advert content to a more interesting slant if that is the case! 🤣
  5. I can assure you that is NOT the case...……………. In fact I can't really think of any other football based websites I've looked at in the past couple of weeks. In any event my cookies get cleaned out at the end of each day so I don't have a history for these adverts to relate to, and then to appear randomly at the top of B&W...……. It's a mystery to me!
  6. Every time I open a B&W Army page, up pops a Legia Warsaw Vs Glasgow Blue Noses advert to buy TV coverage on Rangers TV channel!!!!!!! 😣 Can we please have SOME SENSE when it comes at accepting adverts on a B&W page?
  7. It's interesting no-one has said he just might be happy to come back to Paisley as that is where he is happy, or has family, or likes the town(!) or he just plain likes St Mirren...…………….. who knows. 😉
  8. I saw Dougie Somner mentioned in another post and it came to mind that of all our signings over the years he surprised me the most - not because he could find the net, but that he found it with such regularity!
  9. What has this got to do with the St Mirren Speculation Thread. Oh of course, you are speculating that there is a God!!!!!
  10. With a complete nod to Paul Simon...……… oh how appropriate: Hello, darkness, my old friendI've come to talk with you againBecause a vision softly creepingLeft its seeds while I was sleepingAnd the vision that was planted in my brainStill remainsWithin the sound of silenceIn restless dreams I walked aloneNarrow streets of cobblestone'Neath the halo of a streetlampI turned my collar to the cold and dampWhen my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon lightThat split the nightAnd touched the sound of silenceAnd in the naked light I sawTen thousand people, maybe morePeople talking without speakingPeople hearing without listeningPeople writing words that voices never shareNo one daredDisturb the sound of silence"Fools," said I, "You do not knowSilence like a cancer growsHear my words that I might teach youTake my arms that I might reach you."But my words like silent raindrops fellAnd echoed in the wells of silenceAnd the people bowed and prayedTo the neon god they madeAnd the sign flashed out its warningIn the words that it was formingAnd the sign said, "The words of the prophetsAre written on the subway wallsAnd tenement hallsAnd whispered in the sounds of silence." ...............................................and still we wait
  11. This is so spot on, I could have penned it myself (however didn't have all the arguments in my head at the one time!) ...............….and been proud of it. I have only read this, after posting two other items in different subjects saying much the same thing. Great post.
  12. The starting point would be to have a Board that is grounded, financially astute, well balanced and knows how to deal with people, not just some football folk who have maybe walked the walk as a player or a manager at some point and are considered to be above criticism. So far I have seen nothing in the last 2 years to convince me that there is anything near that level of quality. The financial mistakes, the squandering of money, the inability to keep good Managers, and loose tongues, points me in the direction of thinking that we are unlikely to see any kind of stability, a good consistent football team or any difference in the managerial Carousel. Is that plain enough for you?
