      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. Think Hibs have half a chance today, they gave them a game at parkhead, and Celtic have had a tough game in Germany less than 72 hours ago.
  2. Hope it’s a Hibs v Motherwell Final.
  3. The Two Mikes

    I don’t mind Alan Brazil, he plays a caricature. You are right though, he is so out of touch with Scottish football it makes you cringe when he tries to feign an interest. Hawksby and Jacobs is decent, they have non sports guests on a fair bit and can be quite funny.
  4. It’s not even the most embarrassing result for a Scottish team this season. Far from it. Doubt anyone would claim losing to Bayern Munich Away was embarrassing. Only saw a bit of the game, but Celtic seemed to be playing with a fear and looked panicked when they got the ball. The solidarity payments are a token gesture to other clubs to say the champions league isn’t just about making the rich clubs richer. I’m pretty sure Celtic will have put extra effort into qualifying knowing that the other clubs would get something out of it too.
  5. The only reason I go to away games is to push the numbers up.
  6. Motherwell have the sections of the eastnearest the south stand, That’s what I’ve read too. Don’t think you can scrape up much more support for Motherwell, it’s over double our average attendance (including away fans). Only thing that would get you a ‘well support greater than 10k is probably a final not against either of the old firm.
  7. I’m not claiming to be well endowed, but even if Danielle Westbrook was up for it, that nose thing surely wouldn’t work?
  8. Ranieri sacked

    Saw some of the game last night, and it certainly wasn’t screaming out “greatest league in the world” was nearly as bad as watching a game at NDP. What is the expectation at Leicester? They massively over achieved 2 years ago and now can’t appear to accept being back at their natural level...
  9. And put Jim Traynor out a job?
  10. To be fair, a lot of people got carried away with the cup performance against Aberdeen, but looking at it objectively, Aberdeen chuck 2 goals in in the first 20 minutes and it’s easy to look impressive after that. Although I would caveat that by pointing out, Rangers weren’t exactly cruising to victory before Anderson got sent off on Friday night, the last 15 minutes and 3-0 shoreline don’t tell the full story.
  11. Pretty much. They didn’t have anything about a threat to their Protestant loyalist values or way of life to be fair, but then they were limited to 130 characters, and the Union Jack emoji probably counts as a couple...
  12. I completely get a Rangers fan tipping a Rangers victory, but not seen anything from Rangers to suggest it would be a massive upset if they didn’t win. We’ve only lost 3 games all season, 1 being a very tight game v Rangers, the St Johnstone game that was a bit of a freak with 3 red cards and a narrow defeat to Aberdeen days after we roasted them in this competition. Rangers couldn’t get the better of Partick Thistle in 180 minutes of football, but Fraser sees a team 1 point behind them as cannon fodder....
  13. I’ve only seen the print media version of what he said, which admittedly seems a bit daft. Would be interesting to hear what he actually said. Was worth it to get a reaction from the Vanguard Bears though.
  14. Celtic will get run ragged on Wednesday night in Munich, can see Hibs giving them a game off the back of that. Dont think there’s much between Motherwell and Rangers at all. Im just glad Stuart McCall isn’t leading us into it. As Donaldo says, if we play the team, not the jersey, and I’m sure we will we should be fine. My biggest worry is getting drawn into a battle, and giving the referee decisions to make, Hartley has already marked his own card.
