    I don't really know anymore than what she has said, I'm in Newton Mearns though and I think we are one of the areas with these family transmission spots that have been mentioned. 
    My understanding of the situation is it differs from Glasgow in tracking the cases and the smaller population (and number of cases they can track to family events) makes the per 100k cases seem worse than it is. Seems Glasgow has more isolated cases all over the place to East Ren having more clusters of family members. 
    I personally think it's the right call but would have seen the logic in shifting us back to level 3. My concern with that is it would set a precedent and we'd likely all be in level 3 before long as things relax.

    The number Nicola quoted was the number of new cases on that day, not the amount that have the virus.

    Aye. It's called a vaccine.
    This post illustrates the very problem many people face now after a year of fear mongering. Letting go of that fear is going to be a nightmare for many.
    There will always be another variant despite all evidence showing that our vaccines deal with it. And when there isn't, there will always be the fear of another variant appearing from the mists.
    Then when others stop being afraid of this thing, the "don't you care about the hundred and forty thousand who got killed?" will be hauled out of their pocket. They will never drop the fear and will never allow others to move on either.
    BTW, the NHS is skating on very thin ice is it?
    There's less than 100 people in hospital across the entire country and about 4 people in ICU.
    How on earth is that very thin ice?

    I appreciate that and TBH, I'm gutted Griffiths isn't going because like you, when it comes to a free kick or poaching, I'd want him to be on the pitch in that position. It's a tough call.
    Like others, I think the only player I'd swap would be Fleck and someone else, either Morgan or Gauld maybe but I trust Stevie to make the right call there. Ideally it would have been Jack but with him being out we've lost that option.

    Nice try and good question.
    Pity the back on topic plea lasted for approximately no posts.

    Quotas are good in theory but have their drawbacks too for sure.

    Anyway, back to the topic.
    If someone can show me how imposing quotas (both U21 and foreign players) will avoid the hike in price of Scottish-based players which happened the last time we tried it, I'm all ears.

    A quick check of my own suggests 15, maybe 18 but the last 3 I'm not sure about.
    Some of those 15 actively loathe each other and wouldn't agree the colour of shite so I'm not sure whose "bandwagon" you think we're all jumping onto.
    I'm not going to argue with you though.

    Ryan Christie has scored 4 in 18 for Scotland.
    Leigh Griffiths has scored 4 in 22.
    On that basis alone, Christie is a better option. He also works harder and is fitter and full of confidence.
    Forrest is just back from injury but IMO is still a better option that Griffiths.
    I think it's game over at international level for him now.

    It's not a few, it's well into double figures actually. Well into. Not quite 20. Not yet. But it's getting there.
    If you want to call that sort of quantity a "few" then I suppose you are welcome to delude yourself.

    Don't see where I was not totally calm and rational in my  post perhaps you are projecting there.
     
    Point 1 
    Actually I am not confused, definition of moral obligation from the dictionary "A duty which one owes, and which he ought to perform, but which he is not legally bound to fulfill." at no point did I mention coercion hence why I believe it is a moral obligation.
    Point 2 
    Where did I say you did not? please point it out, I did mention you thinking moral obligation as an argument being childish perhaps saying more about you but you clearly said you advised everyone to get the jab so why would you think I thought otherwise? I was also agreeing with you about social media as again I could clearly read that you were also calling out the bullshit on there and did not say anything abut you believing it.
    Point 3
     
    Back to this imaginary losing my rag thing 🙄
     
    Unfortunately I have no answer for the idiots not getting jabs and agree we as a country cannot force people to get them However once everyone has had the option to get one then would be the time to create a covid passport, if you separate the  f**kwits from the pub and benidorm there would be a stampede to the vax centres, hard to police for the pubs mind you.
    Only thing I disagreed with you on was the moral obligation not existing everything else as you say we are agreement on and I did not try and disagree with.

    Thanks for sharing.

    “The club seems calmer under Jim. His goal I think was to give the club stability and in time you can transform the changing room.

    The two managers previous had short-term stints, especially Oran. His only goal was to keep us in the league.

    Jim Goodwin is looking at the longevity of players who will play under him for a longer time. I’ll keep looking for St Mirren results as they deserve to stay in that league."
