      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. Way too late for that. The only way is a movement as big and powerful as the NRA who fund and frighten the politicians in the same way and I can't see that happening anytime soon. I'm sure you've seen the Jim Jeffries clip on gun control. He sums the whole thing up very nicely, basically their argument is " feck off, we like guns" people will continue to die in the thousands because of an amendment that was written when people carried flintlocks.
  2. Silly season has begun with a new twist. Apparently if Catalonia goes independent Barcelona can play in the English Premier league dont shoot the messenger !
  3. Who goes to a music festival without their bullet proof vest !
  4. He may think you’re some sort of gatekeeper but you can’t deny the boy is generally polite ☝️
  5. Thank you for not being platitudinous ? Not picking a fare up because of the colour of their skin is racism and I would agree is wrong. Causing offence is different. The most recent example for me was the comment that allegedly the England women's ex manager came out with something along the lines of "make sure your relatives don't bring Ebola over when they come" in reference to some Nigerian relatives coming over. I see that as more crass and offensive than racist and whilst I totally defend her right to be offended, I would also defend his right to be offensive. He may be a racist for all I know I have no idea, but it does seem that racist is being shouted on a lot of occasions when it's some twat being offensive when they're trying to be funny. I'm also aware that people may be offended by this view, hey ho life goes on !
  6. Misguided rather than offensive, unless your a parent or relative involved. I'm a firm believer in the right to cause offence. People today are too feckin precious. Just my opinion of course !
  7. Fair enough, everyone is entitled to an opinion but your last line is a tad harsh, in my opinion !
  8. Nope, agnostic and I believe we live on a ? not a plate ?.
  9. You've clearly never caught pistonbroke/wibble after a session. I'll agree I disagree with a lot of what he posts, but "the most offensive poster on the board" really ! I like people that are passionate about what they believe in from Margaret thatcher to tony benn and you can't argue that he isn't passionate. Granted the flat earth theory is stretching a point but then again I read terry Pratchett so who knows. One things for sure after reading his musings on here for a number of years is that he's a nice bloke. Argue with him yes but offensive no. Whatever his failings he genuinely does want the best for everyone. To be fair he's nearly Canadian and they are the nicest people I've ever met ?
  10. Scotty if this board goes tits up I think I'll miss you the most. I've had a few debates with you and appreciate you trying to save me but we'll agree to disagree on most of your views. Would genuinely love to have met you for a beer. For all that you've posted I dont believe for a second anythIng was malicious and was with the best of intentions. As an interloper from down south this place has made me laugh many times wth my favourite being the mulberry handbag thread but you've contributed immensely and to be honest I don't care if you've been"at it" all this time or not. I doubt it but who knows . Anyway if ithe tamb does sink, good luck and god speed ?
  11. C mon england

    Well this is a first ?????
  12. It's about winning things granted but we all live in hope. You of all people should know that following scotland ? And we've not been too shabby for the past couple of seasons. I,d take top six and a cup if you offered it now ahead of our move back home ?
  13. It is bonkers. As a spurs fan I keep reading articles that say we are weaker because we haven't strengthened. We could probably do with one or two players at most and don't doubt we will sign a couple. We've got one of the strongest first 11 squads in the league all young and all on long contracts. Darth Levy knows how to run a football club !
