International Call Up

International Call Up (10/14)



  1. My concern is what have we spunked 1.7m on? It would be good to understand what the shortfalls were in terms of income due to Covid, and what else has it been spent on and the expected ROI? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. George Adam has now resigned as SMISA chairman due to time constraints. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Great suggestion, thank you. Sent from my SM-G986B using Tapatalk
  4. We recently sponsored a Ukrainian family and guests have settled in well, both are working, Tanya as an accountant, Serhii as a Car Mechanic. Their son Yehor is also starting nursery in Renfrew. They are keen now to find their own space (with 9 people and a dog in this house, it's understandable [emoji23]). The problem they are experiencing is via Housing Associations they are classed as Low Priority. For private rents agents are advising them that they can't help because they have no UK credit history. So they are a bit stuck at the minute. Does anyone know of anyone (ideally in the Renfrew area with Yehor starting nursery), who has a flat available they could rent privately from them? Hoping the power of SMFC does its magic. Sent from my SM-G986B using Tapatalk
  5. We have a Ukrainian family staying with us, we got their wee boy a St Mirren top, so the Ukrainian St Mirren Supporters Club is underway. [emoji1] Sent from my SM-G986B using Tapatalk
  6. The way I done it when managing for those on 4 day weeks was just do their holidays in hours as opposed to days. They would have 25 days (175 hours) plus 8 Bank Holidays (56 hours) = 231 Total hours. A condensed working day would generally be 8.75hrs. If a public holiday fell on a non working day, then they would have the holiday entitlement in their annual allowance to take whenever they want, however if it fell on a working day they would get 8.75 hours deducted from their working day.

  8. I do a 4 day week which now consists of 2 days in Glasgow in the office and 2 days working at home. Generally do 8am-5.15pm, but in my role I pretty much manage my own time, so can flex my hours to suit, depending on meetings I have etc. Depending on various stages of projects I can be really quiet or really busy - there's not really a middle ground, so the quiet times I'll probably work less hours, but more when it's really busy. As long as the job gets done, everyone's happy. The con is Monday is Daddy daycare, and I have to deal with 4 kids for 12 hours, two under the age of two... Sent from my SM-G986B using Tapatalk

    In desperate need of a painter to do a 5 bed in Renfrew starting next week... if anyone knows of anyone that could even help with part of it can you send them my way please.
  11. I’ve just finished self isolating after testing positive. Was ill for about 10 days, just felt like a really bad flu. Took the test on the off chance due to how long it was lasting. I suspect I got it via the weans most likely as there were positive cases at their school, and had hardly been out the two weeks prior to symptoms. I was really disappointed with T&T, I got my results back on the Wednesday and it took until the Saturday for them to contact me for close contacts. They didn’t contact close contacts for another 2-3 days after, of which one of them finished their self isolation period on the same day!
  12. Whilst the average wage in Scotland might be £31k, how many hours a week is required to earn that.. 35-40 generally. How many hours do the players work? Probably about half of that. So if you drill down into earnings per hour, there would be a significant difference. But it’s also a shorter career, less stability etc. Swings and roundabouts.
  13. I was Yes in 2014, and I’ve never moved from that position. I have no particular affliction to any particular party and in an independent Scotland would vote for the party with a manifesto I agreed with the most. I would hope with independence we would see an emerging of a number of new parties. For me the recent General Elections and EU Referendum just demonstrates how far apart the political landscape is in Scotland compared to England. I am expecting my first child next year with my Polish girlfriend, so remaining in the EU is more of a driver for me than before - although pleased to say she had settlement status granted recently. The FPTP system is outdated and needs changed. The system for Scottish elections means it is extremely difficult to get a majority meaning all parties need to work together, and this also appeals to me. The key element for me however, is I don’t want a WM government we don’t vote for making decisions that impact Scotland. In an independent Scotland, if the government is not performing we can hold them account at the next election. With so much power held at WM, we have no say at the minute, and I find it bonkers. I just want decisions for Scotland made by a Scottish government voted by those who live in Scotland.
  14. Ideally we can get him to agree a new contract extension, with a transfer release clause, even giving him a 10/15% cut of the transfer fee. Everyone wins.
  15. RIP Fiona - thoughts with friends and family.
