    Is it just me or has anyone seen the recent meteoric rise of the emphatically spoken word “BUT” when football pundits and callers into radio shows use when talking about anything in relation to the game.

    I promise once you hear it, it cannot be unheard. The great Kris Boyd is a serial offender at snapping out the loud and resounding “BUT” to punctuate a sentence. SSB pundits are also at it all the time. I don’t know if the Scottish accent just makes it more pronounced.

    Listen to any of them, Boyd, Duffy, Keevins, McCoist, Gordon Duncan and they do it all the time.

    “Rangers playing well here in the first half “BUT”…..

    “Morelos temperament has been much better this season “BUT” ……

    “Rangers have had a decent draw in Europe “BUT” …...

    I look out for it in conversations at work and with pals and I hardly hear it at all.

    The news and travel guys on Clyde never use it but wait till the callers and pundits get motoring and it’s there.

    The word is forced out, louder and firmer than any other word in the sentence. I don’t know if it just something that has crept into the Scottish pundit/fans dialect or if it’s just lazy speak but keep your ear out for it. You won’t need to wait for long.

    Hopefully it'll replace the word 'like', that IS really annoying.

    There was an interview with the model Agness Deyn a while back where she was asked her opinion on Helen Mirren.

    This was her answer...  "She's so like (pause) ladylike, like".

    Was privileged enough to have seen the man play for us many times, fucking legend. 

    Me too and it was one of those moments you remember where you were when you heard the terrible news. Richard Park did a tribute to him on Radio Clyde and I swear he was in tears at the end, I know I was, I was  bubbling like a child. What a talent he had and a true blue. "Davie Cooper on the wing"

    I don't think it's fair to bump a thread like this, Malky wasn't the only one thinking this at the time. After our cup exit to Hearts I honestly thought it was over for Gerrard. Fuckin delighted to be proved wrong. 

    I've just scrolled through that thinking "i hope I never, I hope I never"  I got to admit, at that time I did think he was gonna leave, thank fuck he never.

    I’ve been told that they’re slashing season ticket prices by upto 50 percent next year and coupled with no CL money they’re either going to have to cut costs on a large scale which will be subsidised by selling any player worth a fee or Desmond will bankroll them, which i can’t see happening.

    Oh I hope so, Imagine if this of all seasons finished with them having serious money problems. There's just not enough bridges in Scotland to jump off.

  7. It's really hard to decide between the first three, really hard. I think I'll go with Goldson, Tav dropped off slightly, still brilliant mind you but the big man just shades it.  Just shows where we're at when any of 4 or 5 could be player of the year, says a lot for Gerrard, McCallister and Beale.
