      PLEASE READ: TAMB is not closing!   10/12/2017

      Just to provide an update on the future of the Tartan Army Message Board. To be clear the board will not be closing and instead will be staying open and will hopefully go from strength to strength. Who Are We? We are a group of Scotland supporters who have varied skills and expertise, along with experience of  being involved in football and running football message boards. When we heard the TAMB faced closure, we contacted the old team with a detailed plan which involved financing and running the board. After speaking to the old team on a number of occasions they have allowed us to put our plan into action. While speaking to them and going on their experience and that of those before them, we have elected to keep our identity private, however rest assured we have the best intentions for the board and those on it. Our Plans. Our plan will involve a number of stages which we hope will not only keep the board going but help improve and rejuvenate it. Our first step will be to do a bit of a clean-up of the board. This will involve some downtime for a few hours where posting will be disabled. We plan to do this early next week, a full notice will be posted on the board then. Once that is completed we will be upgrading the current board platform, both behind the scenes and hopefully aesthetically too. There will be an ongoing process of board improvements which we hope you, the user will help us with, so you have a board you will enjoy We thank the old board team for all their hard work, dedication and their help during this handover and hope you will all help support our plans going forward.

  1. Where are you staying (Ljubjana)

    3 in Apartment Nuk and 2 in Hotel Park Urban and Green
  2. Thank you for sharing your story AND you are stronger than you think, as your post shows. I had similar issues with my weight a few years ago, yo yo diets that didn't work, tired all the time, felt down (not depressed), couldn't be bothered with anything or anyone, you know the script. Through a friend of mine, I found food combining and this worked for me and I lost over 3 stone and to be honest it really didn't take much effort, although really sceptical at first as I have tried various diets, albeit not particularly healthy and the weight just wouldn't shift. The first week I lost 4lbs, felt so much healthier, had more energy and after a few weeks found the confidence to join to a gym (would never have done that before) and after about a year got to my target weight and managed to maintain this for a couple of years. Felt so good on the inside that it showed on the outside as well. So much more confidence, able to look people in the eye and laugh again. Then had a really bad foot injury (Scotland trip at its best!!) which stopped me from doing the things that I really enjoyed and the weight started going on again and before I knew it 2 stone was added, felt terrible, lost confidence got myself back into bad habits but have now turned this around again and have lost 1 stone, starting to feel good about myself again, confidence is starting to return again, back at the gym, albeit not as much as I was once as fitness levels are crap and foot still not healed but at least starting to feel good again. If you want some easy, one pot recipes - not so many dishes to clear up!! drop me a pm and I will try and help as much as possible as I do know how it feels about trying to lose weight and beating yourself up for eating crap. Like I said above I wasn't depressed so don't know how that feels but I can give you tips on how to snack on fab food without the fat and calories that go with snacking and leave you feeling satisfied and energised. Hope you get back to your former self soon
  3. Venue and how to get there ?

    Has anybody used Go Opti before? About to book it and saw there was something on Trip Adviser (don't usually look at that) and a bit of mix with good and even more bad feedback. I know some people can be unreasonable about certain things that's why I don't bother checking it out but it popped up when I googled Go Opti. Not sure what, if anything, to make of the reviews. If anyone on here has used them before can you share your comments please. Thanks
  4. Any Routes?

    We are out Edinburgh, I think 06.40 arriving Vienna 10.25am (Easyjet) on the Saturday but we are not back until the Wednesday from Zagreb (16.30) to Edinburgh via Brussels (Brussels Airline). Not sure what the flights are like for the Monday as we wanted a couple of days away.
  5. Venue and how to get there ?

    Thanks Wanderer. Will get that booked tomorrow
  6. Venue and how to get there ?

    We are going to book Go Opti as well (3 of us in Vienna Saturday morning from Edinburgh (Easyjet flight) arriving at 10.25 am if anybody else on that flight), waiting to see where game will be played first before booking this as it's pay up front and non-returnable. Saves the hassle of the train and changing at Villach as I think we will miss the direct train. Prices are reasonable for the transfers at the moment. Flying back from Zagreb via Brussels to Edinburgh on the Wednesday
  7. Scotland v England Tickets

    Ok, we received ours on Thursday. Happy days
  8. Malta

    If you are going with kids Mellieha, as far north as you can go, has hotels that cater for kids (and a really nice beach), really close to Popeye Village, but if going as a couple wouldn't recommend there as apart from a couple of restaurants in the village not much else going on, although there are buses that take you to anywhere on the island. Sliema is one of my favourite places but it's true come 11pm you will be struggling to find anything open. St. Juliens or Buggiba seem to be the main places for bars etc. No need for taxis as the buses take you anywhere. Valletta is a gorgeous place to visit but really sleepy - worth a visit though. Take the boat over from Sliema and bus back, again to anywhere on the island. If I could afford it I would be there every weekend!!
  9. Scotland v England Tickets

    We were selected for pick up in Bratislava and we couldn't find the hotel, we kept walking right past both ends of the road!!! I have got no sense of direction. Kids were not amused lol Ha ha, it was a great party too
  10. Scotland v England Tickets

    I never choose Special Delivery!! I'm all for saving a few quid . Although pay a fortune on a away games to get there in the shortest possible time normally. Kinda defeats the purpose!!
  11. Accomodation Booked

    Fly out on Saturday Edinburgh - Vienna then booked hotels in both Maribor and Ljubljana on Saturday to Tuesday, to be cancelled when game confirmed. Then onto Zagreb on the Tuesday and fly back from there to Edinburgh via Brussels on the Wednesday
  12. Scotland v England Tickets

    It must be me!! I always do request standard oh well done now. Shouldn't try to do things quickly when at work!!
  13. Scotland v England Tickets

    Yeah although the drop down box "moved" (for want of a better word!!!) the only option was Special Delivery. Bought now as the kids would never speak to me again if I didn't get them lol.
