  1. We need less sections not more! How often would a section on strips or stadiums be used or even visited! You would run out of things to say pretty quickly! That is why the politics section isn't really needed. It splits anything goes into two and people are less likely to visit multiple sections which will reduce the amount of posts. I will look at anything goes but not bother visiting the politics section even tho I'm interested I it, I can't really be bothered looking at too many diff sections. A quick scan of anything goes, non ta football and ta specific is what I normally do. It isn't like the anything goes room is so busy that posts are disappearing onto page 2 in a day. Looking at anything goes 5 of the first 10 posts are politics related anyway! That's why I'd be in favour of home games and ta clubs merging with ta specific. It would create a busier forum. There are only ever a few active threads in those other rooms anyway.
  2. I don't like the idea of a seperate politics section and think it's a bad idea. The anything goes section isn't busy enough to split it. It will just lead to less posts. That goes for the gambling one too. You will find that people will visit a couple of sections on a messageboard but won't go and vist multiple rooms. The old Caley Thistle board was good as it had a Caley section and an anything goes section. They then added a non Caley football section which was ok. Then for some reason it split into about 15 sections. Caley Thistle on the park. Off the park. Other UK football. World football. Politics. Gambling. Old Inverness etc etc and the board died a death. People aren't going to go trawling through that many sections. It needs condensed here and not expanded. Especially as it isn't as bust as old. I would like to see a TA section. (Why have a seperate home games section, what's the difference??) This would merge home games and ta clubs sections with ta specific. Away games section is fine and possibly keep general travel. Non ta football. Having a world cup, euros section and for some bizarre reason a Scottish cup section was a waste of time as they were mainly talked about in non ta football anyway. Then simply an anything goes section. Splitting it will see the number of posts fall.
  3. Really? I was under the impression that it was largely 50/50 with the movement in recent years being towards Yes. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catalan_independence_referendum,_2017 I can't seem to post my screen shot here but looking at the polls there it seems very split. Ignore the ones regarding the referendum as they were skewed towards Yes due to many unionists boycotting it. Looking at polls on the independence issue and they seem to alternate towards who is in the lead. The last 8 having Yes leading 4 times and No leading 4 times. They range from an 8.3% lead for No and an 8.6% lead for Yes at the top end and a 1.5% lead for No and a 0.4% lead for Yes at the lower end. There also seems to be about 8-10% undecided. Spain will never risk an official referendum on those figures.
  4. I smell a Nigerian prince...
  5. They could still post here under anonymous usernames if they are too scared to say who they are.
  6. It doesn't mention it at all there. It just says a group of Scotland fans. Who are they and will they post on here to talk about plans and maybe take suggestions. Merging some of the different rooms within sections is a must.
  7. Are the people taking the board on going to be named in anyway or even post here. Unless I've missed it.
  8. While there are pre qualifiers USA and Mexico etc don't enter until the 4th round. Pre qualifiers are all tiny Caribbean Islands. Cayman Islands v St. Kitts and Nevis etc. Generally Mexico and the USA get free passes. Or that's how it should work out.
  9. The new allocations for 2026 are a bit ofa joke. South America get 6 put of 10 qualifying and Oceania get 1 automatic place. New Zealand pretty much get a free pass every time.
  10. European Nations League

    Say there is a space available in League A and League B playoffs and you are the best 2nd place team not qualified. Do you go into League A playoffs over League B?
  11. European Nations League

    You wouldn't want to be bumped up to League A playoffs over being in League B playoffs against weaker teams!
  12. European Nations League

    Is there a qualifying place for league A overall winners? You could easily have 9-12 teams from that league qualify through normal groups. Where do you get the teams from to make up playoffs? Also league A playoffs are a two legged semi final and final for an overall league winner. So whether they are qualified or not they should progress to that. Maybe there isn't a qualifying place for them?
  13. European Nations League

    We could organise a heap of friendlies against low ranked teams and throw them to drop down the rankings and get into League D. Then win it with ease and qualify for the Euros. If you are on the cusp of Leagues C and D it would be highly advantageous to be in D from a qualifying perspective?
  14. Draw is enough

    While it's not official Slovenia are as good as out as they would need Gibraltar not to lose away to Greece. They also need Slovakia to not beat Malta at home. As it would then possibly come down to goal difference they would have to stick a few past us. For Slovakia, they obviously need us to not win. Senario 1. They would also need Greece to fail to beat Gibraltar at home. Senario 2. A Croatia v Ukraine draw and a 3-0 win for Slovakia would do. Senario 3. A Wales v Ireland draw and a 4-0 win. So while Slovenia are as good as out, Slovakia have a couple of realistic scenarios that could see them get through.
