Aw bless.
 
My mate works for the Record mate. If you want I could have a word and get Toby rightfully promoted to hero status.


:lol: :lol:

What's her name, Darlinda?

I'll bet she never told you'd be busted in your Horoscope.

:lol: :D :P

The Falkirk tv guys have been not too bad, but nearing the end the bias is creeping in!


Not allowed to give credit to anything about Falkirk. RDx1

I've bought the Falkirk TV payperview but can't for the life of me log in to watch it even though I'm on a proxy server. Anyone that's done it before got any advice on how to get it going?


Hahahahaha, GIUY.

#1105770 The KKK Bin Pub Review Thread

Posted by capitanus on 09 December 2018 - 01:38 PM

If you’re going to do a guest review then we need the pub’s name and details of its wine list.
Doesn’t sound like Cheers to me.


We don't want the likes of you and Cartoon Head turning up and spoiling the atmos. It's unspoiled and it shall remain that way, unless someone else outs it. :rolleyes:

#1105758 The KKK Bin Pub Review Thread

Get the landlord on here to explain himself imo. Trial by fire, peine et dure.

Here are the "directors" of The Lighthouse Bar (Greenock) Ltd:

https://beta.compani...402065/officers

The messageboard owners all know what they seen. ;)

The effeminate bar manager on duty this evening was extremely disrespectful to around 50 paying customers, all of whom were good natured lads enjoying a beer and a sing-song before heading for the train. The same bar manager even told the Dundee United lads to 'Go **** off to another pub' amongst other things and even became abusive towards a Morton supporter who pointed out that he kicked out 50 folk for singing just ahead of a karaoke night. Preposterous. An off-duty member of bar staff even tried to pick a fight with the same person for leaving his empty pint glass turned upside down on the bar - which is a universal sign of poor service.

Credit where it's due to the Dundee United supporters, many of whom looked like tough lads, for showing a great deal of restraint when being treated in such a disgraceful manner. The DU lads could easily have taken offence and turned nasty on the bar manager and the bar staff.

With regards to this being a Morton pub or even a football pub, it isn't. They might have a club crest somewhere, they might have a few signed shirts on the wall, but they lack something that is the basic prerequisites for running a pub - that is respect and civility towards your clientele. This place merely want your money with no hospitable service in return.

I certainly won't be giving them any of my custom anymore and I know at least a dozen Morton supporters who think the same way after this evening.

Had they not been allowed in, the club which took that place would have suffered a backlash from their Neanderthal support for essentially killing them off for good. Hence why no other club applied.
Also, it was the SFL minus Stranraer, who proposed a vote to not let them in (no one backed it up).


Of course they didn't. All these club officials have families and personal lives to consider, and Rangers FC are a club with a large paramilitary following. This was also in the same era as several 'high profile' Celtic supporters received viable explosive devices in the post which was sent by Ayrshire bigots as a result of their faith and/or the club they choose to support.

Rangers would have been around in some form, whether by fair means or foul, even if the SFL didn't allow them membership. There would have been no shortage of possible 'donor' clubs out there, indeed having read some extracts of Craig Whytes autobiography, he said that he was approached by the directors of one SPL club at the time to discuss this possibility. Another was the possibility of Rangers joining the Northern Irish Leagues, where they would be have huge away crowds every second saturday. It makes for an interesting read.

Anyway, the one thing that really irks me is the SPL, who were essentially a breakaway league of clubs who no longer wanted to be part of the SFL, abandoned Rangers at the doorstep of the SFL to sort out the mess of one of their members. There is a lot of politics involved in Scottish football which the average Rangers (or Celtic) supporter is either oblivious or ignorant to, and the fact that the SFL and SPL were two separate bodies were one of these intricacies.

Yes, the office is a absolute joke. I waited 4 weeks on a phone call back from Brendan, to no avail. Take Jonathan (who is brilliant btw, our best recruit by a mile) out the equation and our behind the scenes staff are brutal.


Our groundsman is top notch; and when he isn't breaching the working at height regulations, our kitman is great at getting rid of skidmarks.

I think that Jonathan is overstretched and the club should recruit Chris from Chris's Morton TV to help him out.

Posted by capitanus on 24 November 2018 - 11:51 AM

Is this one of these games where there is different tiered prices dependent on what time you want to arrive, and you get charged a couple of quid extra if you don't buy your ticket before 8.59am on a weekday from a shoppie in the arse end of a town where you don't live? Sack yon pish.

Whatever is/was wrong with a straightforward admission fee for a game, and where people can decide right up to the last minute if they want to attend. Let's face it, no matter how big todays crowd is likely to be, the ground will still be at least 75% empty.

The Hero's Return (Waters)

Jesus, Jesus, what's it all about?
Trying to clout these little ingrates into shape.
When I was their age all the lights went out.
There was no time to whine or mope about.
And even now part of me flies over
Dresden at angels one five.
Though they'll never fathom it behind my
Sarcasm desperate memories lie.

Sweetheart sweetheart are you fast asleep? Good.
'Cause that's the only time that I can really speak to you.
And there is something that I've locked away
A memory that is too painful
To withstand the light of day.

When we came back from the war the banners and
Flags hung on everyone's door.
We danced and we sang in the street and
The church bells rang.
But burning in my heart
My memory smolders on
Of the gunners dying words on the intercom.



The Gunner's Dream (Waters)

Floating down through the clouds
Memories come rushing up to meet me now.
In the space between the heavens
and in the corner of some foreign field
I had a dream.
I had a dream.

Good-bye Max.
Good-bye Ma.
After the service when you're walking slowly to the car
And the silver in her hair shines in the cold November air
You hear the tolling bell
And touch the silk in your lapel
And as the tear drops rise to meet the comfort of the band
You take her frail hand
And hold on to the dream.

A place to stay
"Oi! A real one ..."
Enough to eat
Somewhere old heroes shuffle safely down the street
Where you can speak out loud
About your doubts and fears
And what's more no-one ever disappears
You never hear their standard issue kicking in your door.
You can relax on both sides of the tracks
And maniacs don't blow holes in bandsmen by remote control
And everyone has recourse to the law
And no-one kills the children anymore.
And no one kills the children anymore.

Night after night
Going round and round my brain
His dream is driving me insane.
In the corner of some foreign field
The gunner sleeps tonight.
What's done is done.
We cannot just write off his final scene.
Take heed of his dream.
Take heed.

#1104546 Celtic Boy's Club - Celtic FC's statement today

Posted by capitanus on 11 November 2018 - 12:16 AM

It's a pretty safe bet that anybody says "the left supports mass sexual exploitation" of children is an absolute dick of the highest order, tbh. Usual from the usual.


The 'left' prefer to tiptoe around subjects like Muslim grooming gangs, Islamic extremists terrorism and even more trivial subjects such as the Burqa as they don't wish to offend the Muslim communities in the UK. It's a safer position for them to take rather than taking the bull by the horns.

It's an insult reserved by the use of 'Tommy Robinson'and the like for people with a bit of decency.


And is 'Tommy Robinson' wrong in everything he says or does?


You may not agree with him as an individual or even his methods, but he is one of the very few out there who are willing to say in public what many people are frightened to say.
