      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 noticed that Syme has signed a couple of endorsement deals recently so that can't be a bad sign? As usual with these things it'll probably come down to attitude, mental strength and work ethic so hopefully he's good on that score too. Personally, despite only playing six competitive rounds all "summer", I managed to go from 6.4 to 5.4 so pretty happy to spend the winter in cat 1.
  2. You don't think going more than 20 years without an appearance at a major finals indicates we've got a bit of a joke status ourselves? I'd say it's high time we started looking to other countries for ideas and inspiration and if that includes a foreign coach for the national team then so be it.
  3. Fool me once, shame on you etc. We truly will (do?) get the government we deserve if that's the case.
  4. Surely you don't expect to persuade people of Corbyn's merits based on phrases like "will eventually adopt" and "will recognise" when everything he's said on Scotland and independence contradicts that? That's asking people to essentially ignore reality and put their faith in Corbyn just because you want them to. If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, chances are it's a hardcore unionist.
  5. Bannan is one of the very few players in our squad who is capable to taking the ball in under pressure and trying to find a team mate with his next pass. at least half our team tonight were so lacking in composure that they were trying to hoof the ball up the park as soon as it came near them and I’d rather have a team of players like Bannan who at least try and play the game properly. Fair enough he isn’t the greatest player in the world but at least he plays with his head up and isn’t afraid to take the ball. Much like Darren fletcher, who comes in for similar stick from our fans.
  6. I could be wrong but I think the area nearest the main stand is artificial turf so there wasn't much more room than they used on Saturday. Looked a bit like it in the highlights anyway. http://www.edinburghnews.scotsman.com/sport/football/hearts/hearts-make-bt-murrayfield-pitch-same-width-as-tynecastle-1-4553961
  7. We've got a game we absolutely have to win tonight and you think he'll leave out Tierney and Gordon? Brown I could just about understand but it would be a mental decision not to play the other two.
  8. Brown not picking up a booking in the second half sums up the naivety of Scottish footballers at European and international level. If that was Italy, Germany, France etc and their key combative player was one booking away from a suspension, with a home game against Malta to come, you can guarantee they'd have picked up a yellow for something. Brown had a good opportunity around 90 mins when he was going to take a free kick near the halfway line Why not mess about for long enough for the ref to book you for time wasting? Wait and see, he'll play like a hero in a battling Hampden win over Slovakia but pick up a booking that rules him out of the Slovenia game...
  9. The ideas have been around since a couple of companies came up with an idea for making money off the back of whisky without having to bother building a distillery. Considering a huge amount of whisky from Scotland is bottled using what is to all intents and purposes Glasgow/Edinburgh/fife tap water, then it's already been fairly well "contaminated" with water from places nowhere near where it was actually distilled. Given that, I don't think the place the water you add before drinking comes from makes much difference. And whisky rocks are just playing up on the myth that you shouldn't add ice to whisky. Like everything else, whether it's alcohol, soft drinks or whatever, making it colder makes it harder to taste the flavour so putting cold stones in a dram will mask flavour, just the same as ice does. Nothing wrong with that if you prefer it that way but ice is generally the cheapest way of cooling a drink down, or just keep the bottle in the fridge, rather than shelling out for a few stones.
  10. The fallout will be what persuades people to vote Yes though, not the prospect of the fallout. Basically a lot of people in Scotland will have to be personally negatively affected by Brexit before they even consider independence, so if we go again just on the prospect of Brexit then we'll lose again.
  11. Part of the problem must be the fact that they're obviously unable to say exactly who was in the building at the time. Residents might be away on holiday, working nightshift etc and other folk might have had friends or family visiting or staying with them. I can't even begin to imagine how they'll ever be able to say for certain how many people perished and who exactly they all were. It's awful.
  12. Got to be Sheppard. I think Joanna Cherry is great but Tommy's got the personality and the drive to keep people engaged and interested in what he's talking about.
  13. Maybe they were supposed to be empty all the way round but fans filtered forward to take up the space in certain sections? Just a guess but it did look weird.
  14. Brown was lucky not to be sent off after his second tackle but you could argue that being nailed early on was the reason that dele alli didn't kick the ball for the rest of the game.
  15. In just about every seat announced so far if either Labour or the Tories dropped out then the other party would win comfortably so the argument that the Greens get the blame in one constituency isnt exactly reasonable.
