  1. Because if your reserve 'keeper is 18 years old your 1st choice 'keeper has less incentive to be at the top of his game week in, week out. Having a two keepers of equal ability brings out the best in them. C. Smith and Howard had good seasons when they were battling it out to be #1. Gallacher was excellent in his 1st season when he was up against Howard, and was rubbish in his 2nd season when DL made it clear Samson was in reserve. Sammy had a good season up against G. Smith, and hasn't been as good this season when the other 'keeper, has been unavailable for various reasons. Just my hypothesis, mind.
  2. Correct me if I'm wrong, but was it not you who was adamant about two weeks ago that you had spoken to Graham Carey and he was about to sign a 2-year extension?
  3. Remind me how many goals Carey has contributed this season, and how many McLean has?
  4. We can't afford to carry Carey in the team for little return. This season his set pieces have led to one good save from Forster, and that's about it. Last season was slightly better I think, but still poor overall. Most of our goals from set pieces come from Gary Teale. We'll not miss Carey. As for Parkin, I actually quite liked him and thought he was a good option to bring off the bench, though he's paid to score goals and he didn't deliver. All the best guys. You leave as cup winners and heroes.
  5. That's the crust of the matter.
  6. This is why I refuse to buy Aero's, you're paying for fecking air.
  7. the management will give themselves a nice rise after this
  8. I just watched "The Fantastic Mr. Feynman" on the iPlayer and it was, well, fantastic. The film which is broadly based on his last few months alive, investigating the Nasa disaster called "The Challenger" is also on the iPlayer just now.
  9. Sportscene. Callum Davidson is torture. Looks a bit like an old John McGinn. Fuxake BBC, this isn't difficult, just get Thommo every week!
  10. Lewis Hamilton is a bit dull thoughSent from my Nexus 7 using Black & White Army mobile app the Italian has no idea what's going on.might be Spanish

  12. Watching Friday night's Graham Norton. Dara O'Brien is on. Its very funny when Graham Norton isn't speaking.
  13. I'm under the impression that we budget for finishing 11th and getting papped out of the cup at the earliest opportunity every year. Therefore finishing 8th was a bonus last year, winning the league cup is a bonus this year. The club won't make a loss if we finish 11th this year, even before you factor in money from the cup.
  14. I watched the rock pool programme, it was excellent!
  15. See if they removed the canned laughter and replaced Harry Hill with Brian Blessed, that would be top quality TV.
  16. I saw that listed on the iPlayer, will give it a go at the weekend. Watched a documentary on Peter Higgs of Higgs Boson fame tonight, was quite good although very brief. They could easily have stretched it out to an hour.
  17. I do the same. If the BBC were to turn round and demand I pay a reduced licence fee for use of the iPlayer I'd happily pay it but, well, they haven't.
  18. I noticed that if they fail to exit administration in time for the new season, they're deducted a further 10 points rather than relegated to the 3rd division like Gretna and Livingston. SFL bottled it.
  19. Hit with a 15 point deduction. Now in 9th, 2 points behind Cowdenbeath.
  20. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-glasgow-west-22064369 Charles Green in bother for racist language now.
  21. Of course, I would be delighted if he returned, but can anyone give me one single reason why on Earth he would swap Motherwell for St. Mirren? Deserves a shot in England. Good luck to him
  22. I thought they were free to sign free agents from June and couldn't pay fees until September?
  23. http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/opinion/sport/post-league-cup-final-media-1773883 Apologies if this has been posted before, I stumbled across it, brought the tears flooding back
  24. It has been blindingly obvious for everyone outwith Lanarkshire that he should've been punted two years ago at least.
  25. Danny called it right again today. Long live Danny Lennon and long live Tommy Craig!
