  1. Both Morgan and Ryan Gauld seem frozen out of the national team and both are in North America, is there some issue in getting players released for international duty from that league or does the manager simply not fancy either?
  2. I didn't take that asa dig at all, i just saw a 19 year old praying that he was getting his first champions league goal. I was hoping the ref was going to give the usual 30 seconds for each major event (goal) as i hate odd numbers and wanted to see this rounded off at 8 (or 10)
  3. Renfrew has always been like that, residents are very loyal to shops and pubs maybe being at the intersection of two major roads helps as well as the well populated town centre-
  4. The best version of this song and one my daughter still plays to her own girls now. Past your bedtime, Mrs Potts
  5. not all debts are worth pursuing in court, regardless of how significant they may be to the creditor coming out with patronising comments doesnt add any validity to your point.
  6. by definition, exageration cannot be baseless and is somehow rooted in fact
  7. how many has she killed then? someone weighs in with a hyped comment and the measured respose is to compare her to a serial killer?. You are as bad as her
  8. i Hope Zico gets through this. One of my favourites in the stripes.
  9. absolutely no way, i know several people who have reversed the decision to retire this year and i feel healthy enouh to keep on going (some of the time) Retirement is fine if you have the money, but what will that money be worth in 5 years?
  10. most working weeks are 36-38 hours so this realy orks out around 24000, so maybe a take home of 1600 quid per month Not exactly liveable if you have a commute
  11. I was around Enniskillen for work 3 years ago and it had the feeling of quite a prosperous town, quite surprisingly so. I didn't go to the shops or pubs as i was staying out of town at the big golf and country club resort a few miles out of town. That place was surprisingly cheap as it was within the cap on hotel prices applied by my employer
  12. If anyone opened a shoe shop would the council put on shoelace- tieing classes at the library and community centre?
  13. Cos it is a load of speculative pish, thats why no one reported on it the report relies heavily on the testimony of one Paul Davies who wanted to carry out lie-detector tests on anyone who was against him https://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/news/liverpool-news/i-hardly-like-krays-labour-12738919
  14. Pish, a third of all they have is no big deal?
  15. You can bet your boots that any new installations will have a "Kibble first" policy on use. I would be very wary of pouring more cash into the club at this point. In fact, the only investment worth making would be for SMISA to buy Kibble out
  16. that would be harder to swallow than yesterday's cold bargain bucket
  17. That would only be an investment for Kibble, not an investment in the club. Buying shares doesn't provide capital, in fact it could be adding to the club debt. I wonder what the opportunities for Kibble are if they gain many more shares prior to a financial crash of the club. As a major shareholder, the only one with capital or access to borrowing markets, would they have first dibs on taking over the whole shooting-match? It is something that I feared would happen, allowing Kibble to cash in following a buy-the-buds 2 campaign to get them out. Remember, they didn't just crash a go-kart, they crashed the entire venture built around the go kart track in Hillington
  18. True, unfortunately it was always going to end like this with the committee that SMISA has and the crazy decision to let KIbble in the door. There is no rolling this back in the short to medium term, maybe some day the investors will get control of the club aagain but I fear that will only happen after a crash and the supporters have to stump up yet again.
  19. Not really a good comparison, I'd be upset if the sports development bodies put money into professional clubs and neglected the grass-roots game
  20. way too tall, unless Peter Davidson is thetherapist and he is looking down at an out-of-shot FS
  21. Chelsea boy and chelsea girl eventually became topman, topgirl and topshop
  22. Cowans was on the High St, towards the Museum I don't recall a tailor in the Piazza, but that doesn't mean there wasn't one before 74-5
  23. I agree, I also noticed that the customary 15-20 minutes for old firm coverage was reduced to less then 9 minutes on Sportscene on Sunday night. More coverage was given to Motherwell v Hearts which must be a first. The result will be roundly dismissed as a blip on Celtic's record rather than a creditable win. I loved Postecoglou's comments at the end of the game on the radio suggesting that the use of a game plan was somehow a bad thing
