  1. Great news. Unfortunately in life you always get those who like to pour pish on any news that may bring the slightest modicum of joy. These people are sad, likely ill and should be ignored, Welcome aboard Joe, welcome aboard indeed.
  2. aye it is. Has been a Paisley stalwart store for many a year now. Sad to see it go. Littlewoods, Goldbergs, BHS, John Menzies, Clarks, Woolworths, Stereo one, Galbraiths all gone and now Sparkies of Markies will follow. The lack of free parking, a halfwitted designed one way system and the lack of traffic on the High Street has seen our thriving town descend to a ghost town. Thats what Buddies get for voting Labour all those years. Stupid Labour voters, stupid Labour voters indeed.
  3. When was the last time you were REALLY impressed during a transfer window? For me it was when we signed Gary Teale. I recall receiving a thing called a text message on my mobile telephone from a fellow Buddie. Now as a rule I do not tend to receive many text messages so I was surprised when my phone did this "beep beep" sound along with a little shoogle. So I removed my mobile telephone from my lower right jerkin pocket and read the happy, happy news that a player of real quality and standing within the game had signed for my beloved team. I also had a similar, although less surprised moment, when Thommo of the hawk signed for us. Anyway I recall the real deep felt joy that day when I learned that my wee club had signed Gary Teale. Now, we have to be honest. Some will slap the happy tambourine whenever we sign a new player and proclaim things like "great piece of business", but the fact is that the overwhelming majority of signings our club make our largely unheard of by the common Buddie prior to the news of the "great signing" appearing on the twitters. Richard Tait was a name I vaguely recognised as was Jak Alnwick. Guys like McGrath, Morias, Obika and Sheron could well turn out to be more super that a can of strong Tennant's (Obika already has) but you don't get that child like excitement when learning the news that a sought after Scottish internationally recognised footballing craftsmen has chosen your club over the rest. What a signing Gary Teale turned out to be. The sight of Thommo laying the ball off, Teale picking it up and cutting in from the right as he bore down on a certain (now championship) teams goalkeep, the excitement building as the Teale meister shyed away from personal glory but unselfishly squared the ball to yon Esmael Goncalves and the relief/joy/hope as the ball caused a bulbous swell in the back off the net to bring us of the canvas and right back into a cup final. A cup final that we would go onto win, due in no small measure to the quality of the Gary Teale (and his team mates). I could of course expand and discuss the Teale meister's huge contribution in the semi final win over the Sellick, I could but I won't as I feel the point has been made, the point has been made indeed.
  4. Or a Parducci or a Jaconelli? Anyone mind Jaconelli's café in Johnstone? Now they served good ice cream, now they served good ice cream indeed
  5. A wee bit lazy, let me improve it for you Worst: A.Bone, Gardiner, Archibald, Charnley, Gow, Baillie, Kpekwa, Camara, Willock, McVie, Dawson, Bahoken, Twaddle,
  6. Was Mo Camara worse than Cole Kpekwa? I remember Mo Camara kicking a ball straight once so in my opinion h wasnt as piss f**king poor as Cole Kpekwa
  7. Its goes great with the tune in my head.
  8. Oh big Jon Jon Obika nearly made me a streaker When big big Jon Obika put the ball in the Hearts net Oh wee Annie Anne She said she widnae Budge But along came Jon Obika Her plans did turn tae fudge Big Jon Jon Obika of Hearts he did get rid What an assist by the old Covid Now Hearts they are full of intrigue as they try and fix the league But chances are rather sparse Cos big Jon Jon Obika he dumped then on there arse
  9. That made me laugh young man. Well done well done indeed
  10. Often it is yes Here is a typical example of the common bigot "Ah support the mighty Glesga Sellick, Im fae Johnstone and they urr the only team fur me" Okay, why do you not support a local team like say Johnstone Burgh or St Mirren? "Mah great grandfaither wiz fae Ireland and he supportit the Glesga Sellick, its mah heritage" Really, and what team or teams did your other 7 great granparents support? "eh whit" Another one is this Rangers died in 2012 "naw they didnae, wee arra peeeppell" Also see members of the orange lodge, the knights of St Columba, Hibernain clubs, the KKK, the Nazi party, Wellmeadow bowling club, the Conservative and Unionist party and readers of the Dailly Mail
  11. Ah the annual Flareybob pishflap season has started He/She/It is right on time as well. Many would have thought that the pishflap nonsense could have started early due to covid 19 induced boredom, but credit where it is due, the pishflap nonsense was delivered right on time.
  12. It was also in the Dailly Record, so its probably a lot of pish Labour voting people read the Dailly Record......it neednt be be well written
  13. Naw Its completely new. and its smashing. Trip advisor is a website, its the chef that cooks. Its the chef that makes awesome curry. I agree with you mostly btw. Pretty sure Gordon Scott wsa NOT chairman in 2007. That was the good ship Stewart Gilmour that you refer to. So it IS a new management team (mostly, Campbell Kennedy has somehow remained). Just allow a little praise to go our clubs way, it really doea appear to be deserved.
  14. To be fair thats speculation. It is a bit like saying "that Indian in Rankine St, Johnstone is rubbish because I had a bad curry in 2007" when in fact it is now under new management and the best bloody curry known to Renfrewshire. Gordon Scott, Alan Wardrop, Tony and the rest have done a fine job. I refer to te Spicy Garden, a fine curry, a fine curry indeed.
  15. Thats correct, I remember that well. However, that was then and this is now, that was then and this is now indeed
  16. Good to hear, good to hear indeed. PS fixed it for you
