    Hibs 0-1 Hearts, a bit of a kick in the guts, Hibs has been pressing then a wee bit of class, great pass and Shankland slots it away with a cool finish.

    Gordon in the Hearts goal just had a great save.

    Not a great game TBH, lots of running about but not a lot of great football, typical derby, a few meaty tackles. 

    34 mins gone. 

    Suspicion of hand ball at the goal though commentators all seem happy with it. Will be interesting with VAR as Shankland  got away with a studs up challenge that might have been challenged.

    It’s the Aberdeen thread yet you brought Ross county , Well & Killie into it. 🤷‍♂️
     

    im certainly not writing us off but I’m certainly not overflowing with confidence on the basis of what I’ve seen of this seasons crop of players, tactics and performances . 

    Just in from match. Good day out spoiled by a brick hitting the bus window then being very thoroughly frisked by a very large black chap who had NO legal right to do so other than ; you will not get in unless I do this: I wish clubs would be honest and just say we do not want away supporters. Oh also we were  absolutely pish. Manager has no idea.

    Brilliant news for my pension, it'll rocket up by the time I retire, not sure what I'll do with all that extra money. :thumbs2

    Retirees are on track to receive consecutive 10pc state pension increases as high inflation is now forecast to remain in double-digits for most of next year.

    Pensioners could receive a record £2,052 boost in the state pension over the next two years, as high inflation is expected to deliver back-to-back double digit increases under the Government's triple lock promise.

    It means the Treasury’s state pension bill would soar by £24bn before 2024, with the Bank of England predicting that inflation will remain at “very elevated levels” next year, according to calculations by AJ Bell.

    Retirees are on track to receive consecutive 10pc state pension increases as high inflation is now forecast to remain in double-digits for most of next year.

    Pensioners could receive a record £2,052 boost in the state pension over the next two years, as high inflation is expected to deliver back-to-back double digit increases under the Government's triple lock promise.

    It means the Treasury’s state pension bill would soar by £24bn before 2024, with the Bank of England predicting that inflation will remain at “very elevated levels” next year, according to calculations by AJ Bell.

    The state pension will rise next April by this September’s figure for inflation, which is expected to top 10pc. However, forecasts of sustained high price rises in 2023 mean that the state pension could be in for another 10pc increase the following year if inflation is still running in double-digits in the following September.

    Spiralling price rises could push the weekly stipend on the new state pension from £185.15 to £203.79 in April 2023 and then to £224.10 in April 2024. This represents a jump of nearly £40 a week for more than 12 million pensioners.

    They will cancel it again.

  4. Sorry I must have been at a different game from all of you. Erhahon was outstanding closely followed by Bacchus. The rest are poor. Tanser is one of

     The poorest players I hAve seen in many years. Poor thing to say I know but  I hope his injury keeps him out for a few weeks to let us try something else. Yes the Motherwell goalie had a few good saves  but that was because we did not finish properly.

     

  5. Do they have different rules about timing games in England? When you watch Sky results almost all of the Scottish games are finished but the English ones go on for another 5 minutes. Do they do injury time different from us?

     

  6. Article in the Herald today by  Chris Jack senior football writer about his love of Rangers and how delighted he was to introduce his step daughter to the great atmosphere at Ibrox. What chance of impartial reporting is there when the main reporter talks of his love of Rangers? At least he is honest. Think it might be a while before I read anymore of his columns.
