    A number of them have flares, A police spokesman said they are same ones they wore the last time they won league 😎

    That can't be true. Sevco have never won the top league.

    ETA. Ooops. Should have read the next post but, in fairness, I have qualified it by explaining the top league as they have won all three lower league titles..

    They pumped united 4-1.

    Albeit, United started really well and McGregor kept the score at 0 - 0. They were then dismantled and were four goals down in the space of 30 minutes.

     

    My mistake. I was working from memory and I had it in my head they struggled when I saw Sportscene. Still. Doesn't detract from my thoughts on how well they've played, longer term.


  3. While I think it unlikely, given the rangers recent results,  at home v Hibs: 1-0, Saintees: 1-0, Killie: 1-0, Dundee U: 1-0, Livi: 1-0 and drawing  with Accies 1-1 away, they're not exactly setting the heather on fire. If we go there with the right attitude and play to the top of our game we could get the result we need to achieve our top six aspirations.

    Winning a two-horse race, in which Celtic didnae really turned up, will never be something in which to have much pride. 

    For a start, it'll never match up to that sunny April Day when THE Gers smashed mighty Peterhead in the Petrofac final at Hampden, in 2016!

    And nor should it.

    It was, after all, their very first cup final win at, I think, their third second attempt.  

    ETA. I was thinking about their play off final humping by Motherwell when I said third.


  5. Got stopped by the police at 2 am this morning.

    "Where might you be going at this time of the morning"? They asked.

    I replied, "I'm going to attend a lecture about gambling, hookers, alcohol abuse and the effects on the human body, the danger of smoking and staying out late".

    "Really"? the officer said in disbelief. "And who would be giving such an in depth, substantial lecture at this time of day"?

    So I told them,

     

     

     

     

    "My Wife"!!!!

    We both agree fundamentally that spare vaccines should be sent to poorer countries.

    We differ on our definition of "spare" and the timings on when vaccines should be sent.

    And here is the difference between us.

    I prefer to focus on where we agree on things.

    You prefer to pick at the scabs of any small differences between us in order to allow you to continue shouting at the clouds in righteous rage.

    That's your choice but I prefer sunnier personalities than the one you portray.

    You prefer the "I'm alright Jack" attitude without even contemplating that you might not be if the UK horde vaccines they aren't going to use now. A completely idiotic thing to do. You aren't focussing on what we agree on because you don't want vaccines that aren't being used to be distributed to the countries less able to buy enough to suit their needs. There is no agreement. You want the UK to hold back essential supplies, just in case. That is the fundamental difference between us. Not small by any means. And "shouting at the clouds"? Did you get that from the Beano?

    ETA. I'm NOT trying to be righteous. I'm being both logical and selfish. I want to protect me and mine. To do so we need everyone to be vaccinated ASAP. If you can't fathom this then there really is no point trying to explain it to you.

    Oh come on. The "firing line"???? "Lions den"??? 

    Are you applying to work as a headline writer for the Daily Mail? :lol:

    As for your last paragraph. You obviously were in such a frothing rage to type your post (as you seem to be in every one of your posts these days) that you didn't read mine properly. I had actually agreed with you. My very last sentence in fact.

    You need to calm yourself down a bit bud.

    Frothing rage? Stupid statement. I read your post completely. Though I have to say that's becoming less and less useful considering the content of your witterings.

    And you weren't agreeing with me. You suggested that we look after a stock for booster jabs first. That's not what I was saying therefore you didn't agree. Let me reiterate though I couldn't have been more clear to begin with.

    The boosters will be no good if the virus mutates to the extent o f nullifying the vaccine.

    Why?

    It's absolutely right for the NHS that those most likely to get seriously ill and require months of expensive treatment because of underlying health conditions are vaccinated first.

    There's absolutely no justification for putting teachers (or the police for that matter) ahead of anyone else. Those working in supermarkets have a much stronger case for needing protection.

    All this is a distraction anyway. Everyone will have had their first dose within the next few months or so.

    As a country we'll need to keep a reasonable amount of supplies back for booster jabs. Once we've looked after ourselves we should certainly look to help poorer countries.

    Because they have NO CHOICE but to put themselves in the firing line, they have been TOLD they have to put themselves there, so it's only right, IMHO, that the Governments protect them as much as possible. The Governments have put in place many protections for people in my age group who are more likely to suffer disproportionately. There is no magic bullet here but I feel it is that Government's obligation to at least minimalize any danger that causes the people they demand go into the lion's den.

    As for the last paragraph. What don't you get about the word "global"? There is no point having a stock of vaccine if, due to less well off countries not having enough to vaccinate their population, the virus mutates to the extent that that stock of vaccine becomes useless.


  9. We definitely rode our luck today, second half. Never a penalty but we could have had two others, SHOULD have had at least one so probably deserved the slice of good fortune/bad refereeing. I think Yogi will be rightly disappointed not to get a point. Great win and we're now in the driving seat. Don't lose/lose badly next game, assuming the fakes get the wins I expect them to get before round 33, and it's a one game shoot out with Saintees for the coveted 6th spot.


  10. Just got my date with the syringe though I would have been happy enough to wait if the respective governments had decided teachers etc. were to take priority. I do hope the UK government are serious about giving the excess vaccines, which will be numerous, to less wealthy countries, and in tandem with giving us the protection, as this is a global issue. If the pandemic is as real a threat as the likes of WHO say then us getting the jag means diddly squat if it's still circulating and mutating.

    Nor deflection at all.

    This thread is nothing to do with Premiership footballers.

    That's his first, and not his last, fail.

    He also mentions "a pint in the pub", I'd like to see some post I mention this, have a good look, you'll also fail.

    This thread is based on an assumption that the players in last nights Championship game had been to visit a hairdresser, and, as such, abused their position.

    Try to not play the man, I know that's difficult for you. :byebye

    And even more deflection.

    Premiership footballers? :lol:

    I'll let someone else point out the flaw in another of your posts that shows you know nothing about football. :byebye

    🤡

    Deflection.

    His point is still valid. Try consistency.

    Yep. Reckon it may be potentially easier for a midfielder to break through. Saying that if the forwards don't start banging in some goals then who knows. Some of the academy football is delightful to watch. 

    If the forwards we have on the park aren't contributing the least damaging position to give youth a chance is in this area. It doesn't severely impact on the rest of the teams performance. I'm not saying it isn't a gamble but if the young lads are showing enough in training then the risks are worth it. If they don't score then we're in the same situation we were prior to them taking their place. A kind of draw/win scenario if you like. And it gives them the much needed game time to continue their progress.

    While ALL the numbers are heading in the right direction some other fecking "expert" scientist was on STV earlier proclaiming doom and gloom about the Kent variant.

    Keep these feckers OFF the TV and lock them away in some dark room please, we don't need this at his moment in time. 

    Aye. Let's not allow the truth to cloud the sunshine of hope.

    That doesn’t make much sense. I could understand why a drop in popularity might affect election results but why would it affect independence support?

    Anyone in favour of independence who changes their mind because of the performance of an incumbent First Minister is frankly a moron.

    Anyway, like I said, let’s see what happens at the election. 

    It is the nature of polls. There is a margin of error that explains these fluctuations. Next poll could quite easily show 57% for. That would also be within the margin.

    Kurt Cobain of Nirvana who were influenced by Scotch band

    The Vaselines who wrote a song called Molly's Lips

    about the aforementioned Ms. Weir 

    who featured in a film called Comin' Thro; The Rye based on the poem by Rabbie Burns

    who wrote a poem in praise of first US President George Washington

    who was followed over 200 years later by the (self procliamed) best US President Donald Trump...

     

    You fecked it up in the first line. Unless The Vaselines were promoted by The famous Grouse.
