  1. Hopefully this season we will be using a slightly more robust scouting process than "he looked no bad when I coached him as third choice at Tranmere a few years ago..."
  2. Nutmeg magazine is a quarterly that has been going for about 5 years. It's a decent read and it is for Scottish football.
  3. Thought I would start a thread as this and not just Morton in Nutmeg! I don't have a subscription to Nutmeg but have enjoyed the podcasts and also purchased last edition digitally plus free ones. Anyway, I ordered print copy. Issue 16. It arrived today. I knew there was an article about Cappielow by Daniel Gray who does the digital stuff. It was a nice article. He captures the ground quite well, although no mention of the sauce table. Anyway, the thing that has really caught my eye is in the pause for thought section about what people are missing about football. Load of folk like Brookmyre, Cosgrove, Joel Sked, Craig Telfer etc etc. First one is by Kenny McIntyre and he devotes half of his 800 or so words to our very own Chris Buchanan. The guy really is a proper ambassador for us and I am glad that Hopkin and the club also recognise this. Keep up your good work big man!
  4. You seem to be a bit difficult to understand. It was more the second sentence I was responding to. Seem a bit fragile? What's that pish meant to mean?
  5. Sorry I will just shut my mouth in future.
  6. I would have thought that Burns Square was Burns Road, Angus Road, Pembroke and Lincoln Road. Bottom end of Burns Road is into Braeside. That area around Braeside Road, lower end of Burns Road and Flatterton Road. Cumberland Road. My wife lived on the block of flats at the corner of Cumberland and Burns when she was young. Never referred to that area as Burns Square.
  7. Aye ok then. When I used to go to pals houses in Larkfield, the area was never referred to as Burns Square. And to suggest Cumberland Road is in Burns Square is just getting silly. And no I didn't play for St Andy's. Or Pele.
  8. Burns Square was used as the collective for the area and you lived on Cumberland Road? Eh? That is a new one to me.
  9. Yes, which is incorrect. The grocery shop only has one S in it. As I pointed out.
  10. My memories of Burns Square only go back to the 80s but I never recall any houses there. Burns Square is effectively a bus stop. I would be genuinely interested to know who you are Ton4life as my in laws are all from Larkfield. You are the first person I have heard of who lived on Burns Square. When did the houses get pulled down? Just seems odd that they couldn't have lasted longer than 20 years.
  11. Morrisons (one S)You live in Glasgow and you click and collect in Johnstone? Do Morrisons even do that? There's a Morrisons on the southside. What attracted you to the juniors apart from proximity, as opposed to Morton? Was it a root and branch switch to the Ton in 68?
  12. I was just listening to that. Don't normally listen to that podcast. Is a bit of a beamer when someone as shite as Kevin Kyle is ripping into players. Langfield, Broadfoot, Craigen, I heard as well then turned off...
  13. Tom English likened the Partick statement to the Gettysburg Address. Dearie me. Now there is a former Hearts director on saying how unfair it is and that the Spfl are alienating their 3rd largest club. That they have a duty to look after best interests of members.....just like they would look after Dundee United if Hearts stayed up. Get Doon!!
  14. Cerny is, by all accounts, a prize fud.
  15. What sort of league has a team with 9 games in hand? That isn't even Sunday Welfare or Saturday Churches league level. 9 games in hand? And declared winners when 12 points behind? How does that work?
  16. They not the team Jim Tolmie and Jim Bett played for?
  17. How on earth further reconstruction would be voted on following this is anyone's guess.
  18. Raith chairman has now come out in support of 14 10 10 10. Clearly this is going to happen whether we like it or not.
  19. It was serious foul play I would imagine.
  20. The money sloshing around the lowland and Highland leagues means we are entering a period when the team that finish bottom are likely to get relegated. The fact that Edinburgh City and Cove are the top two whilst Brechin have dropped like a stone, Albion Rovers have spent the last couple of seasons in the same position and Stenhousemuir seem to be on a downward spiral.
  21. Apparently the boundaries have been redrawn for Highland and lowland leagues so brechin would go into the lowland league. That makes no sense to me to be honest.
