      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.

Now that the borefest that is Yank fitba' is out of the way, we can settle down to get ready for the one, true American sport..... Baseball. 

Cubs favourites this year with Boston second favourites. I'm taking in a few games this season at Wrigley like last year and planning to follow them on the road a couple of times also.

So, Jas. I see the Indians have started off exactly the same as the Cubs at 6-7 in games. Although the Cubs have lost the last 4 in a row. Hardly inspiring stuff from both the World Series sides so far. The Reds are who have started off well in our division and I'm off down to Cincinnati this week to take in games on the Friday and Saturday.

After the first half of the season being below expected from us, they signed Quintana the pitcher from the White Sox. Should make the city classic an exciting one in just over a week. Today, he started and played a blinder helping sweep Baltimore over 3 games. Could the Cubs have turned the corner? Money is on someone like Houston, Red Sox or Washington though with a dark horse in Milwaukee. Unless we get the finger out. 

I'm kidding myself on the TAMB are interested in rounders though. :lol:

Had the pleasure of watching the Braves take on the Dodgers in Atlanta.  Was a great spectacle but the actual sporting experience was a bit meh.

Have to watch the Cubs play there with the sound down due to that constant war sounding song they play. The Tomahawk something I think it's called. It goes on and bloody on.

Was at two Cubs games last month, both crazy, beating the Mets 17-5 and 14-6 on consecutive nights. Don't think they quite have theitching depth to win the whole thing again though (although they were on fire for the end of the regular season). Cleveland must be in the box seat, 26-4 since the start of September.

Cleveland are the team to beat this year. Outstanding form. After the Cubs ended their huge trophy drought the next team to wait the longest is the Indians so if we can’t do it then it’d be nice for them to. Cubs are starting to play well right when it matters though. Coming from behind last night in a very tight game against Washington to lead the series 2-1. Win tonight and Cubs march on. :ok: ?⚾️?

Big shock as Cleveland choke to the Yankees. Pretty much everyone had the Indians to win this year and now this.

God, don't let the yankees win it. Anyone but them.

Dodgers seem to be hitting form at the right time, looks like they could come into the WS rested versus a team that has just some off a seven game series.
