  1. As I have said on other threads, putting someone on ignore does not work if others keep quoting them.

    Value For Money

    I think Baz is right and you really must have the last word; PUERILE, not purile!
  6. This game was a real experience. Played in the Maracana Stadium in front of a 160,000 crowd the final match of the Taca de Ouro in June 1980 had to be seen to be believed. The Flamengo team included several well known players including Zico and the atmosphere was bedlam. Just look at the tossing of the coin with the crowd of radio reporters with microphones surrounding the referee. The radio reporters dashed onto the field at every significant incident; look at the scramble when the Atletico player was sent off!
  7. For me it is Tommy Gemmell, the inside forward, who came from Irvine Meadow in 1951 and played 264 games for Saints before retiring in 1962, having scored 71 goals. He only had 2 Scotland caps, against Portugal and Yugoslavia, scoring one goal against Portugal. The Scottish team at that time contained such forwards as Lawrie Reilly, Gordon Smith, Bobby Collins and Billy Liddell. He was a member of the 1959 Scottish Cup winning team.

    If it was 2 pints of Tennent's lager I can completely understand!
  9. Antrin did not say the country was ruined. He said it was being ruined. Perhaps you should give up speed reading.
  10. I was brought up in Lochwinnoch in the years just after the end of World War 11 and I had never heard or seen the word "geeg" until this thread appeared. Our cairts were called bogies.
  11. I too missed the game as I was at a wedding reception in the Grange Manor Hotel near Falkirk/Grangemouth and kept nipping out to the car to hear the radio. The only footage I can find is this
  12. I watched a lot of the debate and had no difficulty hearing what Boris had to say. The attempted drowning out od speakers came from both sides of the house. What got my back up was the applause when Boris entered the house and his complete failure to apologise for his misguided prorogation of parliament.

    The penalty should have been retaken as there were 2 or 3 Feyenoord players inside the box before Tavernier struck the ball.
