#1131098 Team of the Decade - Centre Backs

Posted by TRVMP on 07 December 2019 - 10:18 PM

7 votes for Greacen. Fuck me.


Up to 8 now. That wee toaster-strewn room for the blind must get awfully crowded.

#1131097 Ferguson: the new godfather of English Football?

Posted by TRVMP on 07 December 2019 - 10:17 PM

Leeds have won the title more recently than Everton, in fairness.

But that was a fantastic result today for them.

#1131085 Today's match: vs. Dunfermline, away 7/12/19

Posted by TRVMP on 07 December 2019 - 04:53 PM

I do not trust Hopkin with signing literally anyone else.

 

Timmins will be scouring the likes of Bishop Auckland and Maltby Main as we speak.

MacKinnon was bigging up Hopkin in the paper midweek, he won't be going anywhere. Big changes required in January, then.

#1130932 Team of the Decade - Goalkeeper

Posted by TRVMP on 04 December 2019 - 04:53 PM

Gaston had the longevity but McCrorie was a much better goalkeeper than him, so McCrorie it is. If we were to base these things entirely on length of service we’d end up with O’Ware ahead of Gunning and Oliver ahead of Kiltie.

 

When Gaston was a first-teamer we re-established ourselves as a mid-table Championship club. I maintain that he was an important part of that.
 
Although come to think of it, he also went AWOL during the playoffs against DU and we had to use Jamie McGowan, so I'm changing my vote to McCrorie as well.

Where can we get updates.

BBC not covering live score

Goals will update almost immediately but scorer might not be added for a couple of minutes.

 

Goal Live Score app for phone will have it almost immediately.

They are indeed bankrolled, have been for a few years now. They won the HL a few years back before losing to Montrose in the League playoff amidst dubious circumstances (their chairman, whom I presume is named Tormod or Sandy, pretty much came out and said he didn't fancy league football.)

#1130775 Clive James dead

Posted by TRVMP on 27 November 2019 - 07:54 PM

At 80. He held on for a remarkably long time.

 

He's one of the most meaningful and prolific mass media figures of the 20th (and early 21st) century, in my view, and probably one of the last of his kind.

Also is it just my computer or is the video really jerky at times?[/quote]

Good pic on my £100 tablet. New computer needed!

 

Yeah, I figured it might be.

I imagine he's under a lot of stress right now. I don't envy his position, even though it's his fault. It can't be easy for him, being thrust into the spotlight for negative reasons. (I know he's been in the papers before for his longevity with Morton and his Scotland work, but that's different from being treated as a public figure for illicit gambling.) Most people don't handle that kind of attention very well. Granted, he got the chance to give an interview sharing his problems, which is more than a lot get (even if it's not something I'd personally have talked about), but still, this will be a difficult time for him. For that reasons I think he should get a bit of leeway, but the best advice for him is just to keep his head down until everything blows over, and that means not posting on social media, even if he feels justified in doing so.

 

Like it or not, this is now an issue of interest to Morton fans, so of course they're going to comment, and sometimes that comment will involve speculation and judgement. Again, not easy for a non-public figure to handle this, but unfortunately that's the way of the world.
