  1. Regardless of what you think of the plans in general, the massive fly in the ointment/elephant in the room is the mention of colt teams. Quite frankly, f**k that!!!
  2. Yup that’s it. Good to get the additional info. 👍
  3. Sorry Chalky, I’ve posted as much as I know. I’ll try to find out. The whole thing (other than the North and South League 1s) sounds f**king bonkers.
  4. I have a friend who is involved with a member club.
  5. I am hearing on the grapevine that the plans for next season involve the following. 14 team Premiership. A championship and separate North and South League 1s. The Premiership split after 24 games into a top 8 (SPL1) and a bottom 6 with the bottom 6 being joined by the top 2 in the Championship to form SPL2. Trophy for the winners of SPL2.. Home and away matches post split.
  6. As if I wasn’t devastated enough not to make GMan’s good guy/wank list, now I don’t even figure Oaky’s Chums, Plums and Bums list. I’m beginning to feel all insignificant and unloved/unhated on here. As Oscar Wilde once said, there is only one thing worse than being talked about and that is not being talked about. Far be it from me to speak for Hiram, but on the subject of “no evidence to suggest the lockdown is working” or “no evidence to suggest that the lockdown isn’t working”, isn’t he just saying that in the absence of any real evidence either way, shouldn’t we have just gone for the option that didn’t completely f**k up the entire country/world? Just playing Devil’s Advocate here.
  7. Had a quick listen earlier but have already forgotten what he said. If he said the cup win wasn’t the “proudest moment” in his career in favour of his debut for Celtic, then as a Celtic supporter I think that’s fair enough. However, if he said his debut for Celtic was the “greatest achievement” of his career, then the horrible wee ned is talking bollocks.
  8. Hmmmm. Not a very scientific way of measuring. I reckon a better way would be to add every finishing league position (1-42) in a club’s history together and divide by the number of seasons participated to give an average league position, would be a better measurement. And on that basis, I reckon we’d be well below 9th.
  9. I sang that at karaoke a few weeks ago. I sang it once a couple of years ago. It was actually easier than I thought it would be.
  10. Please follow the advice. We are a couple of weeks maybe 3 behind other European countries like Spain and Italy. We should have taken action 2 weeks ago, we really need to do it now. The numbers we are seeing right now are a result of behaviours 4 weeks ago. I am doing. I’m just not convinced that it’s necessary in its entirety. But I’m employing the better safe than sorry/don’t be a khunt for the sake of it logic.
  11. I think I’m sitting somewhere in between the “knickerwetters” And the “irresponsible twats”. Im pretty much observing all the things we’re being told to do, but I am not scared in the slightest (and I’m normally a bit of a woos when it comes to health anxiety). I’m not sure why that is but I’m not fretting at all. Maybe I should be fretting more. I don’t know, but I guess you can’t make yourself worry about something. If I’m worried about anything, it’s more the impact all of this will have on our lives, rather than suffering from or worse dying from the virus. Similarly, whilst I completely understand and agree with the rationale and ultimate goal of the actions that everyone is being asked to take, I do have some sympathy for the argument that the measures are maybe a little excessive and the ultimate damage that will be done to everyone’s lives as a consequence may not be commensurate with the risk at hand. Who knows? Answer = Nobody. I guess we’ll just all need to ride it out and at the end of it all, make our own minds up as to whether the ends justified the means.
  12. Don’t know if this one has been done on here before, but even if it has, in these bored to tears times it’s worth another run. I’ll kick things off with one of the songs I picked on the other thread. Superb intro.
  13. I believe - REM There is a light that never goes out - The Smiths Love will tear us apart - Joy Division Ceremony - New Order Not nineteen forever - The Courteeners. Mr. Brightside - The Killers Inbetween Days - The Cure Dancing Queen - ABBA.
  14. Exactly. An even clearer example is the very one being discussed. 3 points ahead of Hearts before kick off, so the potential swing is level on points or 6 points ahead. It’s no really rocket science is it, and as you say, not one single person claiming you can get 6 points for a win.
  15. FFS don’t be giving that baw heidit swine Faraway anything tae boast aboot. 😃 Anyway, Ahve had two wee ribbon posts in the last few days. It’s aw me.
  16. Work wise I’ve been working from home for the last two weeks and the wife for the last week. Miracle number one is that we haven’t ripped each other’s heads off yet. My employer (a bank) has now told everyone who has remote access to work from home so looks like I’m stuck here for a while. I can work from home fine with the only obvious thing I can’t do being face to face client meetings. Socially, we were supposed to be flying out to Buenos Aires for 6 nights on Thursday just past. Had been looking forward to it so much but is what it is I suppose. We got full refunds on our flights and hotel so could’ve been worse. Supposed to be doing the West Highland Way for the 4th time at the beginning of May. Not really sure how that one will play out. Won’t I suppose if I can’t get off this effin rock. End of May booked for New York. That looks f**ked as well I suppose. What I shite year this is going to be for everyone. On the upside, oor pubs aren’t shut yet, so we’re going down tonight for dinner while we still can. Only a matter of time till they shut. Yours sincerely, The Reverend I.M. Jolly.
  17. I agree. In fairness though, I never asked to be tested. I was told I had to be because I’d been to France. The cough I had (still have actually) was probably the worst I ever had, but I had none of the other symptoms. I never really thought I had it, but because people were saying that the severity of the symptoms varied massively, I thought you never know. As of yesterday, there had still only been 300 odd people tested in Jersey with 12 cases diagnosed, so no massive strain on the health service here yet.
  18. Aye. I got positive result on my ripped my tights test though!
  19. Aw ffs!! Over the last few days I thought this crisis had brought back the old nostalgic, Saints loving Shull. Now the miserable boring auld f**ker has returned. 😩
  20. Got my test results back yesterday. Negative. Not sure how to feel about that?? I’ve no got coronavirus - yaaaaaay! I can still get coronavirus - boooooo!
  21. Was there criteria of how far you had to be flung to be a fud of that description?
