  1. Presumably then they choose to buy or not? That's what I recall from the video, the meals were optional but charged if taken. Was trying to find it earlier, but not sure if it was on Alba as couldn't find it elsewhere
  2. Pretty sure it came up on a video recently, might even have been Goodwin that said it, that the meals put on for players was chargeable to the players.

    Value For Money

    Never claimed to be, but thanks for the call-out. And this was not a "SMISA bad" post, but rather let's get it right and make sure that the organisation and more importantly it's members are adequately protected

    Value For Money

    Just read the email that has arrived in connection with signing up for the new SMISA database. Thought I'd read the Privacy Policy that you are asked to accept. Point of notice on the Privacy Policy is that it doesn't address the new database within it, so this needs fixed before asking people to accept the policy if data is going to be held on systems/places that are different from prescribed
  5. He played on the left of a back 3 group IIRC. We'd wingbacks on the outside of them for a number of games
  6. Just watched back the goal from the game and was impressed with the late run into the box Durmus made today to score. The goal and the runs beyond Obika reminded me of what we saw regularly from Andy Dorman.
  7. I have a season ticket in W2 and was in a comparable seat at Love Street for around 10 years before move. I'd be cheaper pay as you go as I miss games through the season but take the season ticket for the knowledge that I get a reasonable view when I'm there. If there is a move to make seats a free for all then there is no longer any benefit in a season ticket for me and would likely stop it, the club might get around the same money over the season but it wouldn't be a lump sum up front.
  8. Pretty sure I read elsewhere he was German born so no work permit required for now (post Brexit no idea of the impacts for that). It's just the paperwork between the footballing authorities that is required.
  9. Looks decent enough, like the first part where he has the same type of tenacity as John McGinn in constantly harrassessing opposition
  10. I'm not reading too much into it yet, it was in the Sun after all, however an early Kearney comment regarding kids settled in school did make me think that he's not moving over
  11. 8000 is the number for Category 4 stadium, however the rules permit Category 2 as acceptable (which is 1500 seats). So it's not the seats bit, some of the other stuff looks a bit challenging (toilets bizarrely might be a problem around number of cubicles, and things like additional camera gantry - although that could be temporarily added).

  12. Agree, but they obviously think they can monetise him in some form with regards to the contract
  13. Rangers clearly rate as they gave him a new 1 year deal in January. His overall return is better than Mullen considering he played only 22 games this season vs Danny at 30. He's clumsy, but does score goals and someone will look at him and think if he stays fit he'll be worth a punt. I suspect that Rangers will likely look to move him down south next season on loan or look for fees from clubs up here.
  14. And unless Rangers decide to loan Hardie out to them again they will have lost him too. I suspect Rangers will look to move Hardie on permanently to someone, likely looking for some fee to do so.
  15. Problem for Livi this season, setting aside debt for a moment, is that their squad which served them well over the last 3 years is now being asset stripped by other clubs. They are losing significant numbers of experienced pros (most on frees) who have been in all reality over-achieving with regards to the expenditure against them, and these are the players that were galvanised as a group over the years with a few additions each time. Next season they require to do major surgery on a squad that was light to start with, paying way more money that they have on previous seasons against a budget that, whilst will have gone up against expectations, will be no better than 10th in the league (and likely be 11th or 12th). With the amount of recruitment needed they will either need to push boat out on 2-3 quality players and supplement with cheap journeymen hoping they find a gem, or more likely not be able to attract quality players and employ a scattergun approach hoping they can gel the squad quickly and repeat the success of the last couple of years minus the leaders they had
