    Lineker was happy to go to Quatar and get paid handsomely along with the others, where was his opinion on human rights? Two faced bawbags..

    Ouch.... Bet you feel a right tool now 

    "Where was his opinion on human rights"?

    Not hard to find...

    ""Homosexuality is illegal here. Women's rights and freedom of expression are in the spotlight. Also the decision six years ago to switch the World Cup from summer to winter.


    "Against that backdrop there is a tournament to be played, one that will be watched and enjoyed around the world.


    "Stick to football, say FIFA, well we will, for a couple of minutes, at least."


    Ahead of the tournament the former England striker vowed to highlight the issues in the coverage of the tournament, something which he did in his opening monologue."


    He could have stayed away... Said nothing, and the human rights issues would have gone unchallenged.

    He chose to go and, despite instructions otherwise, speak out.


    That answer your rather ridiculous question? 


  2. 36 Tory MPs and Lords have decided Lineker’s suspension isn’t good enough. 


    They’ve written to Tim Davie demanding a full apology “without reservation” from Mr Lineker.

    They also want an independent investigation.

    The same Tim Davie that Sunak worked under at Goldman Sachs?

  3. Linaker shared personal thoughts, which I and the vast majority of people with a modicum of conscience and compassion agree with. 

    The BBC are doffing the bunnet to their paymasters. Unnecessary. 

    The unity and solidarity of the other presenters tells a story.

    Robinson clearly has some issues here, the turning point for us yesterday was Shaughnessy coming on and i am completely confused as to how losing Gogic from midfield seems an exceptional  option for the manager when Shaughnessy is available for central defence.  He should have started and could have been on as soon as Rudden appeared.  I consider the mistakes made by the manager were the factors that stopped us from easily winning yesterday

    There must be someone at county who can deliver a decent final ball and that is enabling Brophy.  Our only decent final ball was the one Shaughnessy delivered for the goal.

    Have Brophy and Big Joe done something to upset our manager?  Big Joe hasn't been in the picture since he said he wanted to go back home.

    100% this.

    I always support a managers right to manage... but cannot help but wonder if these two decisions could come at a cost.

    Not sure why we don’t just get Joe back into centre of that defence and move Gogic into the middle of the park. We are struggling in midfield and think Ohara in particular would benefit from having Gogic doing his share of the hard graft.

    Joe is frozen out.

    Persona non grata. 

    Wanted off the wage bill.

    I honestly cannot think of any other explanation.

    Just watched highlights on Sportscene and actually shocked that they all plus Davidson say never a red card and Neil McCann even says not even a yellow.

    Am I looking through black and white glasses when I say it's a red card all day long.

    I had a FIAT once, loads of problems with it and my mechanic told me the mechanics joke was FIAT Stood for “Fix it again Tam.” Very apt. 

    Yup... My mechanic actually warned me against buying French or Italian.

    That said, one of my first ever cars was a rust and yellow coloured Fiat 127.

    Bodywork was shocking but the engine never once let me down. 

    I drove to Torquay and back in it. The sporty spots on the front obviously helped. 🤐😂😂😂

    Went to Struans in Dundee, quite strange, not the usual smarmy salespeople all over you as soon as you arrive.

    Wandered around with no pressure/hassle, seen 3 cars we liked then had to go into the showroom to get a guy to get the keys and show us what he feck all the buttons do. :lol:

    Eventually settled for the Peugeot 3008, nice spec and plant of room for dogs and suitcases when jetting off on holiday.

    Oh, they gave me £30 under the first "quote" I got from We Buy Any Car with no hassle. :thumbs2



    My mechanic gave me one piece of advice when car shopping... Never buy French. This was based purely on his volume of work.


    You might want to keep this link handy!


    Happy motoring.

    It varies all the time. They will keep sending “offers” but ultimately the money you end up receiving will depend on the physical assessment at point of sale. Good luck.

    The "physical assessment" is a joke.

    We were quoted a 4 figure sum for my wife's wee 13 year old runaround Ford Fester. (sic)

    It was actually in good nick and had not long since had a lot of work done to it. It also had new tyres and a new exhaust. A lovely wee runaround car for someone.

    We went into the office...

    They confirmed the 4 figure valuation.

    We went outside to "inspect" the vehicle.

    Cross in box after cross in box.

    Back in the office the nice man entered all his findings into the computer... and offered us £125! I kid you not.

    I told him it was worth more in scrappage! 

    I haggled him up, but it was hard work. These are experienced "dealers".

    Still a shit settlement but I just wanted rid of the car as I was upgrading and my old car was worth twice the settlement fee. It still is going strong for my better half. 

    WeStealAnyCar serve a purpose, but they serve themselves first and foremost and any initial quote should be laughed at. 

  10. One of my first heroes, Billy The Fish was a Saints stalwart. 

    His handsome athletic frame and agility made him the legend he is. His caps whilst playing for Saints testimony to his skill.

    Gone far too young.

    RIP Billy. Thanks for the memories. 

    Condolences to his family and friends.

    It was a smashing night,place was bouncing from start to finish 174 tickets pre sold and 40 odd paid at the door Add in a couple of raffles to the total giving us more than 3k raised for the charity

    Awesome. Well done. 👏👏👏

  12. Thrilled for the lad.

    Despite being a fan and a player, the abuse he took from our "support" was unwarranted.

    Nothing new... Personally I can trace that back to Billy Stark. I'm sure others can go back further.

    I wish him well and am delighted to see him being appreciated and supported. 

  13. Thursday night was my third gig of the week.

    Another cracker.

    It was the Celtic Connections album launch of Consequences, the 12 track collaborative album by Edinburgh singer songwriter Kim Edgar and various guest artists.

    The 12 tracks were released one a month throughout 2022, having been written during lockdown.

    It involved artists from Scotland, Wales, Finland, Miscou Island in Canada, Ontario Canada and Taiwan!

    The format was simple but meaningful.

    The album would be played in entirety, in order, with each collaborator first performing one of their own tracks to show why Kim wanted to work with them in the first place.

    I love Horse, Boo Hewerdine, James Grant and Louis Abbott of Admiral Fallow, and was so thrilled that they were taking part. They were all class acts.

    I loved discovering some new artists that I now want to hear more of.

    Welsh singer Dan Bettridge was a class act and great discovery.

    The album and therefore running order was as follows...

    1. ANY WISHING STAR (written by Ron Sexsmith & Kim Edgar)

    2. SAVE MYSELF (RUN AWAY) (written by Horse McDonald & Kim Edgar )

    3. THE EDGE OF SHAME (written by Boo Hewerdine & Kim Edgar)

    4. THE ROLLING SEA (written by Dan Bettridge & Kim Edgar)

    5. FIFTY TO ONE (written by Goodnight Louisa & Kim Edgar)

    6. IT ONLY TAKES A SILENCE (written by J-P Piirainen & Kim Edgar)

    7. VENT FOU (written by Sandra Le Couteur & Kim Edgar)

    8. CORNERSTONE (written by James Grant & Kim Edgar)

    9. I DREAM (written by Stone & Kim Edgar)

    10. RIPPLES (written by Rachel Sermanni & Kim Edgar)

    11. WHISPER PINK (written by Louis Abbott & Kim Edgar)

    12. IN THE LONG RUN (written by William Crighton & Kim Edgar)

    The fantastic backing band also deserves a special mention.

    A very memorable night indeed. 

    The album is highly recommended.

    Check out www.kimedgar.com

    An ambitious project by Kim Edgar that has resulted in something very special.

  14. Tuesday night was Beth Nielsen Chapman at the Old Fruitmarket.

    Sublime. Very powerful and emotional.

    I bought the tickets 3 years ago.

    Cancelled twice.

    Her first husband died in 94.

    She remarried, but tragically, her second husband died in December.

    Both of cancer, which she herself has had.

    She was going to cancel the tour but her husband's last wish was that if she was able, the tour should go ahead.

    She smashed it. Great performance.

    You'd have been pissed off if you'd got the final bill from the estate agent and it was 5 times more than you thought though 

    Unless the Kibble were the estate agents in which case you obviously do not understand the current financial climate. They need to protect their "investment"! 🤐

    Well justified.
