  1. Having a favourite royal is like having a favourite genital wart.
  2. Aye, I was expecting to see some movement on that front.
  3. The Colt teams can fuck off. If the sole purpose is to expose their youngsters to senior football, what's to stop them forming a sporting partnership with League One/Two clubs? Hibs have recently formed a partnership with Stenhousemuir which involves players going on loan, as well as sharing scouting reports and other footballing operational benefits. It seems to be a partnership with a list of mutual benefits. Although I highly doubt youth development is the sole motivation for the Old Firm. That said, given the current state of play and the financial difficulties the lower leagues coul
  4. Apparently Hopkin has already been in contact with McAdams, Jacobs and Orsi talking about next season. We should automatically be offering McAdams a deal anyway because of his age, ensuring we are entitled to compensation should he leave. We absolutely should be making every effort we can to keep Jacobs. I'll drive Orsi down there myself.
  5. Let's take a moment to reflect on David Hopkin deciding that five defenders was more than enough for this season, leaving us to have this fucking ridiculous discussion.
  6. That would be a valid point if Inverness hadn't created anything last night, but at least three times Inverness created chances from attacking our left hand side, taking advantage of McGinty's lack of mobility. Inverness failing to taking advantage of the chances they created is absolutely not justification for starting McGinty in lieu of a better player.
  7. If Strapp isn't fit to play then it's either that of Muirhead at left back, thanks to Hopkin deciding to make an absolute arse of building a squad.
  8. I don't have an issue with it to be honest. This is the sort of kit that usually would end up either being put in box and stuck in a cupboard, given away to friends/family of the players or kit man or re-used by the players (we've moaned on here before about the players using different kit issues at the same time and it not looking professional). Is there a whiff of the tinpot about this? Aye, without doubt. But given the lack of commercial imputus we've shown for the best part of a year, we're very much in the territory of something being better than nothing. It's money for old rope. Th
  9. Neither Shelley Kerr or Andy Millen should be anywhere near this job. Kerr was mediocre at Stirling Uni and wasn't overly impressive with the SWNT. Andy Millen has absolutely no tangible experience in the dugout of a senior squad and next season is definitely not the time to let a rookie cut his teeth and hope that it works out well. I've been saying for a while now that we do need someone more experienced to help the club navigate what will be a turbulent tranistional period. It's worth remembering that, regardless of whether we are in the second or third tier, the footballing operation
  10. According to Chris Dodds at the Tele, we're tracking former Liverpool and Barnet goalkeeper Jamie Stephens.
  11. According to the Inverness Courier he missed a couple of weeks with a hamstring injury but has returned to training.
  12. I'd be lining up; McAdams Ledger Fjortoft McGinty Strapp McAlister Lyon McGuffie Nesbitt Colville Oliver Just after the Inverness game I was advocating Salkeld to replace McGuffie, but I'm starting to favour McGuffie starting and getting his chance. The ball stuck a lot better in the forward areas on Wednesday, so Oliver should definitely be starting. It's just a case of altering the supply we're giving him and trying to get the ball into his feet more, so he can turn defenders and draw fouls. Blues might feel aggrieved to be dropped, but one (albe
  13. I don't want to spoil the fun, but weren't a couple of Morton players warming up next to that goal as Blues scored? I'd be surprised if Blues was actually the one shouting. That been said, using laughing manically as your goal celebration is outstanding.
  14. I wouldn't have resigned Oliver either, but there's no point crying over spilled milk. Muirhead is another option, he was playing himself into form before he had to miss a few games.
  15. I forgot about Fjortoft. Aye I'd have him starting alongside McGinty.
