    A figure of 100,000 would make the coverage of Prince Philip's death the most complained-about piece of programming in BBC history.

    Other programmes that attracted a high volume of correspondence included the broadcast of Jerry Springer: The Opera, which received 63,000 complaints in 2005; and Russell Brand's prank call to actor Andrew Sachs, which drew 42,000 complaints in 2008.


    Would have been 100001 if I had been able to get through ! 😡

    I know he is / was an important person to a lot of people and I’m sorry a family has lost a dearly loved figurehead but ffs , every f**king beeb telly channel and all bar 1 xtra on the radio devoted to a whole f**king night of the same tributes was taking the piss .

    suppose they were just softening up the public for the biggie when it happens .

    Raith Rovers were a joy to watch tonight :happyclapper would love us to play like that..  Jim Goodwin was there would bet it's the best game he's seen all season, it was for me

    Brian Rice was also there . Let’s hope both weren’t checking out potential play off opponents 😬

  3. Me and Mrs Gilhooley got our first Jab yesterday at Renfrew leisure centre.

    very impressed with the whole thing, well organised and a lovely lassie administrating the Jab . No Ill effects (yet !) 

    I enjoyed it so much ,I think I’ll go back for another.

    You mean like weapons of mass destruction..  well if you put it that way 🤔 I'd rather they bribe school children who don't have a vote... than threaten the world with...  Fuk with us we'll blow you to smithereens 

    Hmmm , let me think 😐  Would I prefer the children of Scotland to receive the “bribe” of a laptop or Tablet .... or would I prefer them to have a share in a lovely cuddly extra Nuclear Warhead .   Or could I chose option 3 .... a share of a mythical bridge across the Irish Sea. 
    Some bribes are better than others .

    Not at all, if your trying to point at McTominay without recognising McGinn was woeful I suggest Specsavers. 

    As I said, there were a few who were poor, picking out one is poor form.

    10 week ban. :P

    Yep , McTominay was bad but Wee Meatball had one of his worst games in a Scotland shirt as far I am concerned.  
    add to that , two of the best Left wingbacks  in the uk and we can’t cross a f**king ball .

    All in all , a bad day at the office and we have made an already difficult section even more so.   

    watching us in the final third fannying about with tippy tippy nonsense then three passes backwards and the keeper punts it up the park ..... was like watching Saints 


  6. And as for being one sided ?  Yes of course it is. I think and have always thought that Kenny was a donkey as an a manager, a bit of a joke figure if you will. Was found wanting at SPL level , now getting found out at this level also. 

    Now if you want , you can put forward the case for the defence 😉   

    •  If Dicko is still hiding in the wings, perhaps he might want to help the cause 😜

    Might be an idea to post the teams they have played in these 10 games as your posts could be seen as very one sided. :rolleyes:

    No problem . 
    Finland Twice .  Ranked 13 places below them . Two defeats - No goals

    Bulgaria Twice . Ranked 26 places below them . Two draws - one goal 

    Luxembourg. Ranked 56 places below them . Home defeat - no goals. 

    England and Wales - two top 20 teams . Two defeats one draw - No goals 

    Serbia - 14 places above them -  Defeat ..... but at least scored  2 goals

    Slovakia - 6 places above them . Draw ... Nae goals . 

    So , in summary, the lost the games they may well have been expected to lose, couldn’t beat any of the teams around about them in the middle rankings and got beat by a country who have just about managed top 100 ranking and with a population half of That of Dublin. 

    Not great no matter how you look at it .



  8. Dunfermline flop Stephen Kenny again proves he’s out of his depth when he tries to manage at a higher level than LOI.  
    Guys a rocket !  Thank god we didn’t appoint this guy as some on here wanted. 
    His latest defeat to 16th Paisley Girl Guides surely has to signal the end for him.


  9. So, Covid experts on here , ( there seems to be a few )

    I’ve had covid so I’ve been told I will have a level of immunity from that, I’m due to get the jab in the next few weeks so will that make me super duper immune and able to fly anywhere and go to the football ?

    One thing, it's 2021, surely I could drink it or have a Star Trek type gadget rather than a big needle? 🙄

    I’ve always thought this,, 🤷‍♂️    It’s the 21st century and we still don’t have a better way of immunising people than using a f**king big needle and stabbing people 💉😬

    Scree of needles ? Me ?     nah ! 😜

    Interesting figures and I must say I'm kinda shocked that (per 100,000) Scotland could be so much worse off than NI and Engerland!

    But I'm not sure your table proves anything.

    It doesn't seem to be have been hand-embroidered (using organic pheasant quills on quilted papyrus - which bears a burnished bronze edging) in a gender-neutral commune... by the white middle class lockdown left. 

    Herr Denim will fail to be convinced.


    Am I reading it right ? Surely England have the worst rate ? N.I. Almost half of theirs ?

    Gilhooley seems well informed so maybe it was him.... I know he was laid low with Covid a while back but thankfully he's fully recovered 

    Nah , not me 😂. Was working all day today or I would have been there, I’ll be there tomorrow though 👍

  14. There’s no doubt EVs are here to stay but unless whichever government is in power in 2030 (2035 for phev ) decides to outlaw petrol & diesel cars altogether, there will still be an awful lot of legacy vehicles kicking around for another decade.

    Last year was the first year where the ownership of EV& PHEV combined reached double figures. with the changes to people’s work patterns in the last twelve months and reduced mileage for most people , this year could see another big jump in numbers .
