      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. Is that in Islington? There is an Albion is Blackfriars too but is a Youngs pub so doubt they show football. edit, I stand corrected. See that the one in Blackfriars does show sport.
  2. Any suggestions of where to watch the Slovakia match in London? Due to work commitments, I can't make it up to Glasgow. Can hopefully ditch my customers before kick off and hot foot it to a pub. Will be in Shoreditch so somewhere central/north-east would be ideal. failing that it will back to the hotel and no doubt causing alarm for people in the rooms next door as I scream at the telly.
  3. Here's a quick effort without changing too much. Hey wee man wi the big stick in yer hand wont you play a simple melody?Just to remind me o' the girl I left behind me wont you play a simple melody?For ahm comin' back Bonnie Mary ahm comin home to youAhm comin back in the good old summer timeWhen the bagpipes are playin for auld lang syneAnd we'll roam the hills togetherAmong the purple heatherBonnie Mary o' Argyll.For we held a grand procession as we marched To see our teamTen Thousand tartan army - the likes ye've never seenWe will never be mistaken of being fae the land beyond CarlisleWhen they hear us singin' Bonnie Mary o' ArgyllFor we're a' Scotsmen everyone a ScotsmanBuffalo Bill frae Mary HillNever worked and never willAye man believe it if ye canThere was Hielan JocksIn tartan socksScotsmen Every wan.
  4. Also, they (Sfa) really don't do themselves any favours. What if someone had bought a flight last night off the back of being told 8-10 points would get them a ticket and the statement that Lithuania point wouldn't be added/Poland taken off. They could say they were following advice not tonly book travel until ticket was guaranteed.
  5. While it is ridiculous that they said the couldn't update the points table within two weeks, it is also a bit of a joke that they've now changed their minds and gone against what was said yesterday. i was actually due to benefit as couldn't go to Lithuania but I wonder how many of those that have been so outraged on this thread were actually impacted. As has been said, vast majority who were in Lithuania were likely also in Poland so no change.
  6. f it was the one by the bridge at Bewick, it was Tessa Hartmann and Pat Kane that were on. They did a live vote of the audience and Yes came out on top by a large margin.
  7. Yeah, that's the one. Was an outdoor broadcast (well in a marquee anyway) if I remember rightly. I'd put money on it being the same guy.
  8. I'm sure I've seen him before. Possibly QT or might have been Newsnight pre Indy Ref. Whatever it was, he was giving it the same big man, chest beating, no surrender routine.
  9. Can see where you are coming from but would advise against it. Kings Cross & st Pancras are major travel hubs and therefore security is always a big concern. Can't see the police being too keen with crowds of people drinking outside the station. Granary Square has lots of bars and restaurants but not pubs. Really nice places and some are among our best customers someouldnusually recommend them but doubt they will be keen on welcoming large groups of football fans.
  10. Porterhouse in Covent Garden was one we were talking about earlier as well. Good size and space to overflow outside if it is rammed. Sure they heat the outdoor area as well if I remember rightly. If busy I think would be good for atmosphere. So many good pubs around though but Covent Garden/Soho area seems like a good bet to easily find somewhere with a good atmosphere.
  11. Excellent. Cheers. Journeys weren't showing when I checked them out before.
  12. Quoted £80 for a 6 seater with private hire firm. Cheapest train route is £7.60 up to £23 if using gatwick express.
  13. I'll get a quote for a 6 or 7 seater. Can also look at uber when we land as that will be the cheapest by far. Failing that we can hop on the trains.
  14. Bump. If anyone is on this flight and if it is indeed a +90 minute wait for a bus to Bratislava then drop me a PM if you fancy sharing a cab. Also, we are on the 11:05 BA flight from Glasgow to London City. Just two of us so will probably just transfer to Gatwick on public transport (4 trains). Again, if others doing the same then may be worth sharing a taxi.
  15. Those that know me will confirm that I am never funny. I probably wouldn't wear heels though like Dave does. Accident waiting to happen on the cobbled streets of old town Bratislava. So, if the national dress is what you were talking about, what are you talking about now?
