Scottish Cup Draw, East Fife v Morton

27 November 2018 - 10:30 PM

A wee visit to deepest darkest Fife in the next round. Luckily your new unofficial fan travel officer is here to provide some key advice for the travelling support:

 

- look out for a known, elderly groomer in the area who has been known to prey on victims such as 'Gordon', a middle aged man from Linwood who hasn't been seen in weeks

 

-  if you see a jakey in their Slazenger tracksuit bottoms lurking around the local Keystore with their scabby greyhound, don't offer to buy them their next half bottle of Thunderbird. Let nature take its course.

- last but not least enjoy a balanced meal at one of Fife's most prestigious restaurant chains

I'm going to enjoy this cup tie.  :thumbup2:  :drink:


Drums At Football Games

1) Are s***e.

 

2) Are doubly s***e when combined with songs about abject donkeys like Kudus Oyenuga

 

3) Create only a suitable 'atmosphere' for spectacular failure from the team rather than encouraging success

 

Let today's match be the permanent end to this failed experiment then.


The KKK Bin Pub Review Thread

08 March 2018 - 01:19 PM

I was driving down the coast road the other day and spotted a sign for a bar at the Cloch Caravan Park, which was the first I'd heard of such a thing. As my body is a temple on a school day I didn't take the turn up to explore this time, but it had me thinking about what other drinking dens exist within the sprawling metropolis of Greenock that aren't widely known about.

As a connoisseur of bin pubs, I've enjoyed a Tartan Special or two in the following places:

The Dirty Port

Star 'Hotel'
Comet
Donnachie's
Sutherland
Prince of Wales (now dead like Rangers)

City Centre

Carnock
s***ehouse
Jimmy
Waterline (not the latest Livingston type franchise job)
Old Bank
Westburn
Hole in the Wa'
Norseman (Hole in the Ceiling)
Green Oak
Horseshoe
Chaplins
Willow
Thistle a.k.a The New Lynedoch a.k.a The Super Fun Karaoke Pub
Broomy

West End

Everywhere from the Cardwell to The Firth (also dead like Rangers)

The only other pub missing from this tour of duty to my knowledge is the Burns Lounge, as Kyle got barred from there a few years ago when a tense game of dominoes turned into a full scale rammy on a Tuesday afternoon. Shame. So is this mysterious Cloch Bar the only other place to have missed out on the KKK pound?

Discuss your experiences of Greenock's finest hostelries, and The Norseman as well.
