Youth team sub (3/14)



  1. Christmas Day game surely ? You can just see the waiter bringing out the prawn cocktails.
  2. Sorry I didn't reply to your query ! Yes, my dad used to go down south for the festivals, ie Knebworth , Isle of Wight etc so possibly looked in on you then. Would have been the early '70s. I now live in New Zealand, but try and see the Buds whenever I'm back home. Will give you a shout next time. Take care, and as always COYS !
  3. Did you know my Dad, Mike Brannigan ? Dyed in the wool Saints man. Spent his last few years out in Kilbarchan and was great pals with Andy Carruthers back in the day.
  4. The protocols may be bonkers but SMFC signed up to them !
  5. We are being punished for failing to implement and follow SPFL protocols. A consequence of players testing positive for Covid is that we couldn't fulfill fixtures due to a small playing squad. This lead to the SPFL investigation where we were found to have breached the prescribed protocols in several areas. You could argue that clubs with large squads will less likely be investigated as they are more capable of fielding a team, if they have Covid positive players. Having said all that, we have been found to have f*cked up big time. Take our punishment and move on.
  6. I love the club. In a previous existence, I was a union rep and would sit in on meetings as a support person for members going through a disciplinary process etc etc. I would be fully aware why they were there and quite often I would advise " You can't defend the indefensible. Sit and take your medicine. " I am making the rather wild assumption that the SPFL investigation process and outcome will be fair and transparent. But do fear that the club will be made an example of, IF they have breached covid protocols.
  7. Yeah I get that. But my gut feeling is not good re this. This is our 3rd strike remember. As said previously, burden of proof is on the SPFL to demonstrate that SMFC are on the radar again because they have not followed prescribed protocol.
  8. SMFC know they have f*cked up big time. Why else would they hire a retired senior ex cop ?
  9. Unless you are testing 100% of the population all the time, you really don't have any CERTAINTY as to what is going on. Anything less, introduces margins of error. As a generalisation, this is dependent on the proportion of the population being tested. Smaller proportion being tested implies bigger margins of error and less ability to make accurate predictions. Most deaths will have happened at the start of the epidemic. Unfortunately those most at risk have checked out already. Admittedly, conjecture on my part. I do think there is a kind of muddled "strategy" with a gas on / gas off lockdown policy. Hence the eat out to help out in August followed by the current screw down "tiers". It is an attempt to spread out future deaths. "Flatten the sombrero" - remember that ?
  10. Just been charged £12.95 for 3 lemonades and 3 bags of crisps. If that's 'hospitality' then f*ck 'em. Let them go under ...
  11. I'll make you a wee wager that the next 2 week 'circuit breaker' restrictions will be over Christmas/New Year ...
  12. It's all Alcohol's fault ! If you didnt feel as if you're being treated as a moron, you are now ! Feckin' ridiculous.
  13. Are you saying we'll just a have short duration (2 week) lockdown in 3 months' time because people will be less inconvenienced re work, travel, schools, child care etc. That's a nonsense !
