  1. They were voted in on an "Independence" ticket and have a majority in Holyrood even with the "AMS" system......it's an even bigger majority when you look at Scottish MP spread within Westminster. I don't disagree re Devo Max but let's be honest, that would take placing trust in Westminster and they have pretty well reneged on "The Vow".
  2. Adults probably shouldn't need there behaviours "ignored"....
  3. Separating votes into "regions" is done almost everywhere and at almost every vote, why should that one be different? I think there needs to be some context applied here FS.....the "no" campaign was very much centred around the EU membership debate (remember Cameron, Milliband and Clegg (supported by Brown) crossing the border to tell Scotland such despite saying it was solely a matter for the Scottish Electorate, "if Scotland leaves the UK it leaves the EU" but "remain in the UK and you'll remain in the EU". In that context I think it is more than fair to separate the "Scottish Electorate" in that particular debate despite the overall result.
  4. With respect Ricky, that’s bollocks. I don’t agree with many things that FS posts and am aware that, at best, he can be contrary…..you, however, drag the same rubbish (in your superior manner (unworthy or otherwise)) into every thread. I do believe that on occasion you add value to the forum with your thoughts/opinions/anecdotes but you cheapen all of your contributions with your inane baiting and incessant trolling drivel.
  5. Are you still floundering about in here??
  6. I drove many buses through that pend. I drove many buses through that pend. When I played amateur football in Paisley one of our trainers, John Steel, worked for Western....any time we were playing a big game away or going on a weekend "end of season" trip John organised us a bus departing from the depot. All the drivers seemed to know we were coming, who we were and wished us good luck on our travels........good memories!!
  7. Dad got our first colour TV for the 1978 World Cup from Rediffusion which came with a free Adidas Tango. Our house was packed with neighbours to watch the games and the garden was packed with kids playing football the whole summer long.
  8. Thanks FS….been following your commentary from Charles de Gaulle Airport, the match wasn’t on any of the screens. Pity about the result, and the injury, but there’s no doubt Murray is making progress…..you have to admire his determination when many others would have retired on a great career. Right, off to Yerevan and hopefully three points on Tuesday evening 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿
  9. Just about to head off to Hampden, via the pub of course, I promise you I will not be partaking in this self-indulgent, wallowing in other's pity pish. I absolutely stand with Ukraine against what is happening and will be very respectful of their People, their Nation and their Anthem but anything else seems to be patronising to me, we have some Ukrainians who work through our business and they don't really like the idea of this.........they would certainly like more practical help (shelter, money weapons and military) for their people at home or those escaping the conflict, actions more than words etc. All of that said, if they beat us tonight I hope they gub the Welsh at the weekend........C'mon Scotland
  10. Not too different in Construction CG, plenty of vacancies but not enough skilled workers to fill them.....as long as we can find a foreign Bamber Gascoigne that can lay bricks everything should be ok!!
  11. I agree with some of this CB however we still managed to accrue 6 points in that 11 game spell so only 5 defeats (2 of them to Rangers), it wasn't great but imo this is worse. I haven't called for SR's head but this doesn't have a good feel to it.
  12. Goodwin is having the same struggles as Glass did with the same squad (they hadn't won a game in 2022)............Robinson has taken a team on form (six wins and a draw in 2022) to losing 8 out of 9 games. You are comparing/judging Apples and Pears.
  13. You keep going back to this.......Goodwin got the gig at Aberdeen because the previous manager was sacked for under-performing and Goodwin, rightly or wrongly, was seen to be doing a good job with us. Robinson got our job in totally different circumstances and, so far, has made an absolute hash of it.
  14. That’s the key for me Sonny, even when we were on previous poor runs I generally felt the team were fighting for each other at least…..now they seem to be going through the motions. Marcus Fraser was right in front of me when SR brought on Flynn and Jones for Power and Erhahon, you could see the confusion on his face as the new formation and system was relayed to him….the deflation in him was obvious as he shook his head.
  15. Mallan rarely, if ever, played centrally under JG so don’t think that’s the reason.
  16. We were offered him last summer but JG didn’t think he worked hard enough defensively…..defies logic that we ended up with Jordan Jones who offers absolutely nothing defensively and young Henderson who has yet to learn that part of the game.

    VAR Poll

    They weren't against it in principle, they were against it on cost.
  18. I was getting my haircut this morning and the Barber is going on holiday next week....absolutely no problem in adhering to his request that masks be worn. It's no longer mandatory and that's fine, respecting others wishes who still feel vulnerable just feels like the right thing to do.
  19. A player I’ve normally had respect for, especially coming back from a proper injury…….really poor from him

    VAR Poll

    Then the advantage will always be exaggerated in favour of the “big” teams or you could go the whole hog and ban away fans to give you even more home advantage……not for me, a correct decision (as often as possible) should be exactly that.

    VAR Poll

    Down South they are centrally located at Stockley Park…….there is no doubt (in my mind at least) that referees are influenced by large crowds wanting every decision in their favour, VAR will only work properly (in my opinion)if the operators are remote from the stadiums. I voted for.
  22. You have absolutely no shame and I really won’t drag this thread into the spiralling shite you indulge in…….you made that apology under your St Ricky alias and if you login under that name and go to your messages you’ll find the thread and context around your apology, what’s worse is you already know what it’s about.
  23. Ricky, you tried to out my daughter as a liar and denied ever watching an OF game in the 1877 Club when she claimed your group behaved in an entitled and arrogant manner while watching such a game. Other posters provided posts when you had claimed to watch an OF game in the 1877 Club despite your protestations and actual claims of collective bullying……your apology (snidely private after your behaviour) I have attached, at your invitation, below:- Wee Bud. I was wrong. I had completely forgotten that I had watched an OF game there. I can't apologise that the club may have been busy and space at a premium for everyone, including your daughter but do assure you that, despite what might come a cross on here, that arrogance towards others, particularly a lady is not my/ our style. If I offended her in any way then I apologise. you truly are the prick’s prick
