      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. I once met Colin Calderwood (think he was manager at Nottingham Forest at the time ? ) at Stansted airport ( I was on my way to meet my girlfriend who lived in Suffolk ) and asked him for a pic . He tried to make a sharp exit , when in my haste I pulled a bottle of strawberry massage oil out of my bag instead of my camera ! He did pose eventually though and seemed a decent bloke .
  2. My wife became more and more obsessed with the main character from the Planet of the Apes film ,until eventually she ran away to A Serkiss .
  3. Manchester

    Think it`s about 12.15 ? Something like 75 minutes after the Ryanair flight is due to land so fingers crossed .
  4. Manchester

    Don`t know Iain Steele , Iain Pool (aka Big Pooly) is with us
  5. Manchester

    At least 4 from the Solway tartan army on this flight , staying in an airport premier on the wednesday night and flying into Riga then onto Vilnius
  6. 3 weeks in Australia

    Planning a 3 week trip to Australia next year to celebrate me & the wifes` 50th birthdays and look for idea of the best way to plan an itinerary and how to book multiple flights etc and any ideas of do`s and dont`s and any hidden gems . Rough plan is to fly to either Melbourne/Sydney first spend a couple of days taking it easy .If we start in Melbourne then take a leisurely drive along the Great Ocean Road as far as Warrnambool and then head back to Melbourne and fly to Uluru . After a couple of days` there we want to fly to Cairns and travel down to Port Douglas area and spend a week or so around the GBR . I`d also like to go to Hamilton Island and do a Reefsleep but i`m not sure if this will be practical , unless someone recommends it ! . From there we want to go to Sydney for a couple of days and may be looking at a lay over either on the way there or way back . Can anyone say if this sounds like a feasible plan ? Cheers
  7. Folk who annoy you at work

    The Dunning Kruger effect sums up a lot of people mentioned on this thread , and a lot of people I work with/for . Add to that the ones` who are counting down to retirement and only get off their chairs to either eat or piss .
  8. Dual destination flights

    First time we went to Skopje we flew with austrian airlines via Vienna and we dropped off and picked passengers at Ohrid en route , don`t think we`d have been down for more than half an hour .
  9. Anyone booked yet?

    Anyone that`s flying into Riga , you can fly from Riga to Vilnius , it`s 45 minutes and coming at 29 euros on the 31st August /1st September with Air Baltic . Better than 4 hours on a bus and probably not much more expensive .
  10. Anyone booked yet?

    Same flights but with Air Baltic flight Riga to Vilnius for 30 euro
  11. Ninja hailstorm yesterday morning in our village , with hail pellets the size of gobstoppers, caused an estimated £3000 of damage to my sister-in-laws` car , with several more people on FB reporting various degrees of damage and a lot of phone calls to insurance companies .
  12. Euros Betting

    £3 @ 25/1 on Iceland 2-1 netted £78 and I`ve still got my £5 e/w on Italy to win the tournament . Off to Krakow tomorrow so hoping for a 2-1 Poland victory on Thursday to keep the profits up
  13. EU Referendum

    Read in the Brexit supporting Sun today (English version ) that our holidays` will get more expensive , but that cheap deals are available to places such Sharm El Sheikh (which you can only fly to via another European country ) or with no trace of irony , Turkey .
  14. Euros Betting

    Me too ; ) Although there are actually 51 games in total , so your outlay is more but your potential profit will be higher .
  15. Hi,

    The booking is with a small firm who only have the 1 vehicle. Hence why it is a good deal.

    See below additional companies who offered a similar rate...

    info@glasgowcoachdrivers.com, robert@gibsondirectltd.co.uk, dalgleishandrew51@gmail.com, adam@smccoachhire.com, lrexecutive@yahoo.co.uk

    try bouncing them off one another and see what you can get the rate down too.
