      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. Sorted..nearly.

    The lads down here (Stockport TA/Manchester TA/ a couple of the Preston Lads and Liverpool TA), have occasional get togethers either in Manchester or Liverpool I could give you a shout for the next one if you like?? It's always a good laugh and of course the beer flows freely. I just find getting home sozzled the worrying part (wrong tram/train or bus etc. from Manchester Piccadilly)
  2. Sorted..nearly.

    The Victoria Bar is normally jumping, it's on Victoria Road, Govanhill, about a ten minute walk from Hampden, great atmosphere, DJ and the beer is quite reasonable.It opens at 11.Bookies and food takeaways all nearby. I meet my mates/fellow footsoldiers in there on account of living down in Manchester now. Hope this helps.
  3. Watching the game at home with a few single malts (I can never watch the games sober!! ) whilst my other half is watching Poldark/Victoria/other assorted rubbish on the other TV in the Kitchen.
  4. Moved down to the 'Shire in 2005 and lived in Bolton whilst studying for a PhD at Uni. I then got married and moved to a wee place called Cheadle Hulme but since then i have been divorced and I am now in a wee village called Gatley (on the way to Manchester Airport) and love the place, I do get homesick but Glasgow is only 3 and and half hours up the road in the car and I am engaged to an amazing lass!!
  5. Can't Concentrate At Work!
