  1. What a nice problem to have. Puts our squad into perspective doesn't it
  2. Our U21s have done fairly well over the last 15 years or so but very few of them seem to make the step-up. I'm not convinced that's all down to game time. I think there is a dearth of genuine quality in our game. A bit of a chicken and egg situation but presumably a lot of these German U21s are playing regularly for their club sides because they're very good players, rather than the other way around. I've no doubt playing competitive high-level football brings players on but there has to be potential there.
  3. He's used to getting fucked by the Blues. I'm sure I can do better than that
  4. Makes me wonder who else in our team you could turn against. If Davis left under less-than-ideal circumstances would that overshadow his achievements? I was disappointed Boydy left but have terrific memories of his time with us. Words like "hate" and "cunt" against our all-time SPL top-scorer. You need to get a grip.
  5. Support Scotland's opposition if you wish. I am British but am proud of my background and support Scotland in all our team events. I believe the behaviour of some supporters in booing the Liechtenstein National Anthem is petty but not representative of the National Team or the country as a whole. Both are bigger than these narrow-minded idiots. I, as well as many others, choose to stand above that. If you do not wish to do so, then that is you.
  6. Invest more heavily in facilities and coaches for training young Scottish footballers and identifying talented players if you want to qualify for future tournaments. Not quite as catchy but probably more useful.
  7. Depending on the form of lymphoma it is one of the most curable of all cancers. Lymphoma is actually reasonably common in younger folk. I have a friend undergoing chemotherapy at the moment for stage IV Hodgkin's Lymphoma which is pretty serious. From the sounds of it he has very early stage lymphoma which is certainly good news and gives him a very good prognosis. As someone else mentioned, does anyone know how you would go about contacting him? I'd genuinely like to send him a get well soon card. He is my all-time hero EDIT: This address is from the TV3+ website. Could probably do it via t
  8. Love the way the hooker takes the moral highground in the article too. She even posed for a photoshoot. Her parents must be so proud
  9. Not really relevant, but this reminded me I heard Jim Leighton on Off The Ball recently describing his contact lens incident whilst on Scotland duty in a World Cup Qualifier (also the night Jock Stein died) against Wales. Apparently Alex ferguson didn't speak to him for 2 weeks after that
  10. Serves him right. He says "yo" far too much for a white guy
  11. Prefer their fishing one. Must be some good banter at training
  12. Sincere condolences Boab. And as others have said, well done on making what must have been a hard speech. I'm sure he was very proud of you
  13. We were at Piccadilly Gardens earlier in the day & the atmosphere was great. Singing to the staff in the offices, banter with the Zenit fans etc. The only problem was lack of facilities at that time. About 20 toilets for thousands of people and hardly any bins whilst everyone had carry-outs. We left for a curry & when we came back the atmosphere was totally changed. The security guards had abandoned their posts & it was totally overcrowded. People were very, very drunk & starting to get annoyed with the lack of space & places to have a piss. At this point we thought we'd tr
  14. Why would your clavicles crush or crumble anyway, unless you had really bad osteoporosis? Honestly mate, these are so cheesy. It's going to be on your arm for the rest of your life and none of them seem to mean anything to you, you're just picking random Eminem lyrics. Ah forget it. Get: "Extraterrestrial, running over pedestrians In a space ship while they screaming at me: "LET'S JUST BE FRIENDS!"
