      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. Going vegan.

    Mind and quit smoking anaw.
  2. Aye, TAMB resurrection party! Hola :waves:
  3. I usually tip a driver in Glasgow but Edinburgh taxis are so expensive I resent shelling out any more than the advertised fare. Also night rates start at 6pm which is a bit early!
  4. I guess I could stick around for Slovenia and Slovakia. In the entire existence of TAMB Scotland's never been to a major tournament. But we're going to win these games and go to Russia, aren't we? And there will be nowhere to talk about it. Right you are Bruce
  5. If TAMB is ending then there must be a video somewhere of Pistonbroke singing 'My Way'. Must be.
  6. Nooooooooooooo!Haven't posted for a long time but the TAMB was a big part of my youth.OK I say youth, I'm on the wrong side of 40 now, sitting here in my baffies but there's nothing mature in: Bobby's Daughter. The Kraeigh saga. Bus Station Girl. Eagle or Buzzard? The Death of Balloch Thistle. Andreimack's Lonely Housewife. Ally Bear's love of the fuller form. But I started losing interest in the national team after the Wales game at Hampden (4 years ago!!) and frequented this place less and less.I will raise a glass to all the great people on here, Flat Earth and Lamia, Jonny, Bzzz, fringo, Ruari, Hawkeye, calmac, Mindi, Flure, etc etc (even neil r)
  7. Unfortunately I think the UKIP vote going Conservative will more than compensate for the Greens, in Mundell's seat at least.
  8. What kind of return are you looking for, risk do you want to take, timespan you looking at? Sticking it in a FTSE tracker is historically the best way of getting a return, provided you have 20 years to wait. property can also provide reasonable returns but there are two kinds of property. Ones you buy for the expected capital value increase when you sell it - like Edinburgh New Town; and ones that give you income straight away as rental properties, usually in good value but not shitehole areas, like Dunfermline or Grangemouth. Riskiest is to invest straight into a small company. But unless you really know business and the market segment then you are as well investing in lottery tickets.
  9. Resting bitch face is a well known thing women suffer from, "come on love give us a smile," "hey what so miserable about," "oh look, thinks she's better than us," when all the victim of this is doing is vacantly wondering what to have for tea. Anyway guys get a similar affliction. Where you are just standing there minding your own business and some drunk barrels up to you and says "what are you looking at?" Guys like this: I've no idea who this guy is, he's never done me any harm, but don't you just want to punch his nose till it comes out his ears? Resting Punch Face. It's a thing.

  11. Have to confess

    We'll play well enough to nearly beat them.
  12. You cannae keep a valley girl doon! It's the way they say 'hoover'-
  13. Stop before you get to the east coast. Problem solved...
  14. Newport is amazing. Where else will you be offered a ride and a fight in every single pub.
  15. I've canoed it... a brilliant trip at this time of year.
