  1. Forgive me if this point has been raised before and forgive me a second time as an exiled Scot having an opinion on an issue that won’t really have any effect on me politically but certainly emotionally. Here goes: The previous yes campaign was doomed when the Orange Order came out and marched making their declaration to the no campaign very clear. This one move persuaded a large Protestant number to vote no.( they may not be associated with the OO but would have strong Protestant beliefs) Salmond missed an opportunity to explain what a yes vote would mean regarding the monarchy as this is of very high importance to the Protestants in Scotland. My point is not one of pointing a finger at the OO it’s more pointing a finger at the yes campaign as they didn’t appear to realise how powerful and influential the Protestant vote is in Scotland. Sturgeon, being from the west coast may have a better handle on that aspect which I believe is well worth examining in more detail in preparation for a second referendum. Politics and religion are always intertwined and Scotland is no different.
  2. Thank god dundee United and Ross county are both losing so the damage isn’t as bad as it could be
  3. It’s probably a moot point but let’s say none of the officials picked up on the tackle, would it be looked at retrospectively and the player receives a red based on tv evidence? I guess it throws up another point that he would have remained on the pitch and we still have 11 v 11. We may have a case if the 4th official hasn’t followed protocol but I think it’s unlikely. The argument shouldn’t be around whether it’s a red or not, more about how it was handled on the day.
  4. Didn’t see the game but it’s sounds like we missed Durmus who on the little I’ve seen him can be creative w
  5. Problem is if the triallists are any good we run the risk of Hibs or whoever usurping our plans by offering them a better deal.
  6. The Buddies line up on Facebook includes at least 1 triallist. Anyone got any idea who it was?
  7. Does SDA now stand for Social Distancing Arena?
  8. Give him the rest and the treatment he needs. If we were winning games due to his bravery in playing through his injury then there may be an argument in keeping playing him but we are not, so let him have some time out to recover and get back to his best. He is some player when fully fit but he is only human and cannot carry the team on his own.
  9. At least it’s reassuring that Kearney’s trying to avoid just punting the ball, it’s the players who need punting. He clearly knows who he needs shot of but thankfully is too professional to name them. He’s right though that January is still a long way off. The prospect of pasting after pasting until then is not going to attract much quality when the window opens. Oh woe is me!
  10. All decent managers have a good solid number 2 !seriously though this is a good appointment as Kearney needs someone who has a good understanding of the Scottish game. The back room staff now looks better with Rice, Nichol and Langfield supporting the manager. It does throw a question mark over Rice’s position but let’s just trust the process and if results turn in our favour no one will care if we have one or twenty coaches.
  11. Is anyone else getting a whole pile of Chinese writing? (I’ve resisted the temptation for jokes that might be deemed inappropriate)
  12. Coming back from 2 nil down against thistle to win 3-2. Scanlons belter against Celtic. 5-0 Scottish cup win at Broomfield..... the singing at that game will live with me for ever..........
  13. His expertise in putting together a defence that doesn’t leak goals may well be just what we need. Put that alongside the experience of Ferdinand then we might just be very hard to beat. OK has a philosophy of playing good attractive football. If the defence is strong and sound then the rest of the team can get on with winning the game.
  14. Fantastic attitude and very sincere. Can’t ask for more and he feels that he can get better. This might be the best bit of business we have done for a long time. No billy big time attitude and a work ethic very much in line with what we want to see as supporters. Welcome home big man!
  15. Pundits talking utter gash regarding Stubbs. None of us know the facts but they are trying to defend him! Jeez!
