In all seriousness, with that squad, their failure to be 12/12 so far is pretty damning.

Hopefully the beginning of the end for McKinnon's full-time career.

#1126567 General Football - Weird Results And Other Things Worth Sharing

Posted by TRVMP on 23 August 2019 - 08:04 PM

AIK were an utter gang. Played for a 0-0 from the first whistle.
Legia were also dogshite. The Polish league has got to to be the worst league in Europe per capita.

It absolutely is, without question. Nobody else comes close, not even Romania. And the players are on very decent money (considering the low COL in Poland.) Also, reminder that until recently Polish football was out-attended by bloody speedway.

The Allsvenskan is also a bit rubbish but you'd expect that based on population.

Our previous CEO wasn't aware of any issues, remember.

Carpet in a gym isn't weird at all.

It is where I live. My 'main' gym doesn't have any carpet, even in the reception area - only in the office area. I've been to probably 10 locations nationwide in its chain, and while my memory could be faulty, I don't think any of these other branches have it either. The weight/treadmill floor is, I guess, some kind of rubber.

I'd love to be considered an 'ideas man', sounds like a way just to be absolutely crap at your job but have people fawning over you.

#1125985 The Tunnock's Caramel Wafer Challenge Cup 19/20

Posted by TRVMP on 14 August 2019 - 12:46 PM

Indeed. It's hardly as if we're watching the 1960 European Cup final every week, a novelty away day is a perfectly valid thing to be interested in.


A little off-topic but people always talk about that game as one of the all-time classics, but if you watch it now the main thing that stands out is how absolutely shite every non-attacker is. Ramsbottom would have kept that game competitive.


I just looked it up out of curiosity (and boredom) and it's been five years since we won a game in this competition. 


ET win over Berwick in 2014 :geek:


A certain Gourlay, J. with the goal in that one.

Literally lolling at what Hawke did to this club's ability to sell admittance to the ground. The previous system, though admittedly imperfect, was fucking six sigma compared to what he left in his gormless wake.

More to do with population.
One in Glasgow at Holyrood, one in Kilmarnock at Grange, one in Motherwell, one in Edinburgh, one in Dundee,.... Can't remember where rest are.


In terms of coverage of population, it's about as fair as you can get while not including the Highlands and Islands, and D&G. If anything the Glasgow area is underrepresented. Perhaps Fife is as well.

The shortfall is "partly" covered by two six-figure transfer fees?


Will the rest of Scottish football wake up and realize that they can't be "sustainable" based on these English sales, which are too few and far between? The numbers just don't add up unless you're doing it literally every single season.


It might not be the exact model, but a membership/subscription model like MCT's is probably a more realistic way of getting extra cash. Something like club membership in Spain, maybe.

We're going to have to agree to disagree on this. I don't want another Warren figure who talks a good game but ultimately falls down where it matters.

The last fucking thing we need is more interviews. He's only just spoken to the Telegraph in the last two weeks, perhaps even more recently than that (forget when exactly.)

Have we conceded enough goals yet that we can state the obvious - this gormless* simpleton is the latest in a long line of English nobodies to end up in 'recruitment' in Scottish football, and promptly sign a family-sized assortment of absolute muck from AFC Hovis and other bin outfits? "Oh, it's just the jock league, hur hur, Sam Ramsbottom can wear the number one jersey."

This guy should have his recruitment role taken from him, otherwise we we are in very real danger of doing a Falkirk.

Absolutely nobody without a *primary* knowledge of the Scottish league should have anything approaching a deciding say over recruitment. There is simply not value in the English lower leagues because most of the players are dung, and anyone good is already scouted or earning more than we're likely to match.

*look at his picture on the official site and tell me this is a man who could pass a field sobriety test after six months in Tehran.
