  1. Bollan and Stephen Wright were both players who would have been good signings if they hadn't been quickly hampered with injuries.
  2. You paying this penny up front or in instalments?
  3. He said he's got a two loan player limit and that we have enough players in Gauld's position as things stand.
  4. I'd need to check the specific rules of the sanctioning bodies whose titles were up for grabs, but standing 8 counts were generally eliminated by the United States Association of Boxing Commissions back in the late 90s; the ref's options, if he thought the shots weren't low blows, were to stop the fight or let them carry on. (If he classed them as low blows he could have warned Ward - or even deducted a point - and given Kovalev 5 minutes to recover.) The ref judged the blows to be legal, felt Kovalev wasn't defending himself and so stopped the fight. I thought the stoppage was premature and that at least one of the low blows was borderline - only guy who knows for sure is Kovalev - but I do think the stoppage was coming. Kovalev didn't seem to be responding well to Ward's body shots, and I'm not convinced it was all down to any low blows; Ward's always been good on the inside, and I think Kovalev - and Jackson - took for granted just how good and strong he can be there. Bit of an inconclusive end, but I'm not convinced Kovalev would win a third fight. I don't want to see Ward move straight up to cruiserweight now either, though I don't think the likes of Beterbiev are ready for him. Stevenson certainly won't fight him, even if he wasn't on Showtime rather than HBO; not sure Alvarez would want that fight even if he beats Adonis either. And fuck watching Ward vs. DeGale. Looking at the division as it stands, I can see why Ward is contemplating moving up in weight; there's no real money fight at 175lbs.
  5. My dad used to know a taig called William King. Guy tried to go by his middle name in school, but the RC school teachers wouldn't have it, so every morning in registration they'd ask for "King, William."
  6. I don't think there was ever any danger of that, to be honest; Garner seems the type who actually enjoys playing, and wouldn't be happy just training or playing the occasional youth team game. I thought he might have stuck around and tried to force his way into Pedro's plans, but if he knew he was down the pecking order then I expected him to consider leaving. Waghorn, on the other hand, I think might prefer to see out his contract. His missus and wean moved up here - think his missus gave up her childminding business, or whatever it was she was doing - so I don't think he'll go unless it's to a team he wants to play for and in an area he wants to live in. (Not criticising him for that either; it's easy to forget that players have families and all that comes with that.)
  7. That doesn't really sound like the the vernacular one would expect from a Portuguese.
  8. I'm glad to see him go, and didn't think he was good enough for Rangers, but there are only a couple of instances where I thought he could have put in more effort; generally a hard worker and seemed desperate - maybe a bit too much so at first - to make an impact here. It's not exactly his fault that we paid more than he was worth and paid guys like him, O'Halloran, Kiernan etc more than we should have. I can think of several players during the McCoist years that could have done with putting in the effort Garner did.
  9. I don't mind us signing Roman Catholics. I do think we need a spine of Rangers men in the team, but signing foreign RC players isn't that big of an issue to me. I don't, however, want to see us sign too many taigs. I highly doubt the likes of Amo, Reno, Albertz etc were singing IRA songs before signing for us.
  10. We need those players though. We need players that are proven in the SPFL; our best teams always had a balance between proven Scottish players and players from abroad (or England). £1 million for Walker is too much, because he's in the last year of his contract, but if we can get him for under that then we should go for it; he's a proven goalscorer at this level, and will create chances and space for others.
  11. Sunderland have had a lucky escape too, in fairness. All due respect to Walter, but was he really suggesting McInnes over a sterling Aberdeen stint or because they're pals? We've heard from all the usual suspects over the last few years how well he's done at Aberdeen, and yet all he's achieved is one League Cup win and one season of challenging Celtic (and bottling it). Sunderland need to get their next appointment right, or they could end up in another relegation battle; I think they'd more likely be in one under McInnes than they would be in the promotion chase.
  12. That's partly why it's stalled. Some of the dealings with Milne were scrutinised when Aberdeenshire council were on the brink of going bust. This stadium has been talked about for years; Milne won't get the same level of support he would have from the council years ago. On top of that, the residents in Kingsford are largely opposed to the new stadium. I'll be surprised if it goes ahead, as Aberdeen FC will have to fund the building of it, spend money on the surrounding area and would have to spend money elsewhere to make up for the environmental issues.
  13. Neither would I, as am I fuck ever cheering on the Scottish national football team after years of calling up third rate English players after discovering they had a Scottish granny, years of anti-Rangers bile and because grown men in skirts just look ridiculous. Fuck international football in general though; nae interest.
