That's more or less as I remember (now you have pointed it out) thank you.  It's just a little confusing when some people refer to Linwood and others to Elderslie.  Thanks again

Well just to please you and since it is such an irritation that YOU had to comment; even though (I do admit) my question was way of subject, although it was born out of conflicting descriptions  in several conversations that were;  and currently still are happening,  of a well know superstore (in and around Paisley shall we say), so as not to belabor the subject and thus cause you more and more misery dear sir.  Anyway to answer your question 'who cares' which I do admit could simply be a statement rather than a question since there is no question mark following the 'cares'.  However; I choose to interpret it as a question  and since you allowed many other people to have there say before you chose to interject (which very civil of you good sir) i think you deserve an answer to your (in my opinion) question.  The answer is 34 including yourself that is how many post originate from my original question, many as stated previously were way of subject but since you asked? :whistle

Silverburn is pish. At least Braehead has an HMV, or, as I call it, the Braehead Man Zone.

Interesting if true, that the dividing line between Renfrewshire and Glasgow runs through Krispy Kreme Donuts at Braehead. There should surely be ID checks and a checkpoint Charlie arrangement going on down there.

The border between Glasgow and Renfrewshire ran through a number of shops at Braehead when it was originally constructed, but a number of years ago, probably about 10 the line was changed and all of the Braehead development including Krispy Creme, the retail park, Sainsbury’s, Dobbies, the steam wheeler, the hotel and even the Harmony Row football pitches are now in Renfrewshire.

The planning and political background here was that Braehead was originally approved by Glasgow planning authority and they enjoyed a few years of business rates at the expense of the crumbling business shopping precinct that was Paisley High Street.

Renfrewshire Council were rightly miffed and pursued the historic boundary delineation of Renfrewshire / Glasgow as it ran through the Hillington / Braehead area and made a claim to the boundary commission, who came out on Renfrewshire's side of the argument.

Glasgow were so pi**ed off they set about using the Pollok retail centre as an argument that the south side of Glasgow required more retail and granted themselves consent for Silverburn to be this new mega-centre that would then draw on the public from the south side and those to the east of Paisley who might historically have found their way to Paisley town centre or even Braehead! :o

Meanwhile your Pension Fund which always had its funds spread across High street shops and conventional retail locations was quickly eroded as values in the High Streets / Argyle St began to react negatively to these new out of town draws........................................

Well that's my twist on the politics and retail shenanigans of the west of Scotland exposed to the public!!:wacko:

Arabs reportedly interested in Rooney from Aberdeen. He was mentioned on here a while ago and think he and stokes could be a good partnership. Not a fan of stokes as a person but has an eye for goal.

Rooney should be on our radar for players to bring in. 

I only saw him on the box recently but I thought he looked increasingly less fit as the season progressed , probably because he wasn't getting many starts. Certainly , if a club like Dundee U , up to their eyes in debt and struggling , are considering a bid , we should be able to offer him a deal too !

Rooney is one possible, that's for sure.

No rumours or speculation on new players on this thread for a while, not even fake ones. Stubbs keeping his cards close to his chest or just nothing doing ?

Surely not all the new signings will come from England where apparently we need to wait for the WC to end, must be a few from clubs up here. Are we interested in Halkett and Rooney, and if so, are we talking to them ? And if not, why not ? Love to think we're working on some deals.

I think the problem is all the ITK punters were maybe getting snippets of info from our old management team, and that source has now gone. 

Time for someone to step up to the mark and befriend Jacko. Just don't take your wife along.

Argyll Saint's record is very impressive.

I’m ITK about one thing. I was chatting to GLS at the stadium when I was getting my car park pass, and he told me where he’s going on his summer holibobs this year.

I’d rather be ITK about the ten incoming players I reckon we need, but it’s better than nothing, enjoy Saltcoats GLS. :P

Are you speculating that GLS could be heading to Sandylands?
