  1. A taser to their balls would be appropriate. We had 2 young females running riot in East Kilbride town centre cursing at security and threatening to lick windows. Would not listen and clear that we have no deterrents in society that garner any respect. Grinds my gears. I would fine the parents and maybe that would be more effective to those neds.
  2. Wimbledon, Euros, Olympics, major Golf and Baseball plus events like Edinburgh festival all cancelled. Still some actually think the football season can restart at the end of this month or next. There is absolutely zero chance of this or any major sport taking place until the foreseeable future. The most optimistic punters think around late summer or later is likely.
  3. Most clubs will have no money to bring in new players without some sense of future budgets. How can you offer a player a contract when you have no idea if the club can afford it? Players do move in January - pre contract, without a club after release or sell due to needing money. The circumstances at this time are wholly different with many clubs likely to fold with little or no income. There will be little movement on new players at mist clubs until the current crisis is resolved and income streams start again via matches, season ticket sales etc. Even the big 2 in Scotland will be wary if opening transfer talks at this time with no idea when a ball will be kicked in earnest again.

  5. Agree 100%. More right wing nonsense and sad political point scoring.
  6. We have played 15 home and away games. Why would we have 5 away and only 3 home left. After 33 games we will have played 16 home and 17 away. By your calculation we will play 18 home games and 20 away?
  7. It's the same in most European leagues Shull. The big clubs with the fan base and income generally win their leagues (German, Spanish and Dutch giants and of course, the English Premiership with the biggest clubs generally winning titles. Should clubs like Newcastle, Southampton, Everton, Spurs and Crystal Palace just give up and not compete? Only 2 clubs in our country will win the league as they have the resources and crowds and raid competing clubs of their most talented players. That will never change so it's all about qualifying for a UEFA spot or staying in the league.
  8. You clearly have no grasp of economics in the 21st century. You will be asking for concert tickets to be £10 next. Whether football is too expensive or not, clubs in Scotland simply won't take around a 60% cut in income (at least) or they go out of business. Everything is more expensive now - cars, houses, theatre and transport. If you can afford going to football but choose not to over your 'too expensive' claim then that's your view and choice. Football clubs will not reduce tickets to your preferred price any more than any other commercial business.
  9. Agree. The other main issue is that clubs still need to pay wages and other expenses. Cutting the cost to £9 as Shull keeps saying will simply make it unaffordable for clubs to pay current contract salaries and survive. Today's footballers simply won't play for so called professional clubs with reduced/lower wages when they possibly can earn more in the non football environment.
  10. Good point (no pun intended). There are no easy games in our league and Jim needs more than 3 quarters of a season before the usual "sack him" is mooted. A number of managers have taken more than this time to get their squad and playing tactics right. Jim is still learning and will make mistakes. We must give him time otherwise the uncertainty from a revolving door will damage our club's reputation further.
  11. Nothing to do with freedom of speech as such but more to do with personal insults.
  12. Hearts f**ked them today, Goody shat it... get over it. You were the one complaining and not me. I note you never answered my question as to which other team has gone to Ibrox and adopted an attack strategy? I don't need to get over anything as a long time supporter who has seen more downs than ups in over 50 years. Rangers are a far better team than us and I didn't expect anything from the game. As for Hearts? Livvie beat Celtic this season at home so it can happen albeit very rarely.
  13. Makes you wonder how a mediocre team like Burton in the third tier let him go? Was decent during his last time up here.
  14. They were the home team and got Rangers at the right time. They got hammered at Castle Greyskull in the last game. Well done to them today. Time will tell how 'rank' they are at season end. Other than Celtic in the previous Ibrox game, name me another SPL who has gone for an attacking strategy at Ibrox?
  15. No the club did not sack him. Sacking means firing. His contract was up and it was not renewed as club felt it was time for change. Whether it was the right decision is for every Bud to decide but he was not sacked - as most fans understand the term. Time to move on or Sir Alex will be brought up.
