  1. Past hour
  2. Disagree : As a media monitor / critic he was superb. Now he is acting like Scotlands Farage : threatening to his own party and try to split the SNP vote. He should stick as what is good at. Not a chance in hell I would ever trust him my vote. That doesn't mean I don't appreciate some of his work.
  3. I've tried to join the killiefc.com forum but have been awaiting confirmation of account for over a week. Also message the page on facebook but the message hasn't been seen.
  4. Like uche being linked to celtic, right before Rangers play hearts, in the hope it spurs him onto a good game.
  5. Arsenal being one of the best teams in the world. Behave Always good to hear of players being scouted, however you'd have to imagine he'd get lost at Man City.
  6. In no particular order.. Eubank Snr's instruction to "go to the body" was not intended to protect Blackwell, he seen that punching to the head was not having the desired effect ie to stop Blackwell, so "going to the body" was a tactical, not humanitarian move Headguards serve one purpose only, to protect against cuts, wearing them in professional boxing would make injuries worse not better -- Most serious injuries in Boxing as caused by an accumulation of punches, not the one punch KO, if you wear a headguard you will get hit more often as the headguard means you see the punch a split second later, that split second make all the difference when trying to avoid / block a punch --EDIT, just seen AAID already covered this above 🙂 Far from banning Boxing, I have just supported a campaign aiming to bring back Boxing in Schools in England at moment... I firmly and passionately believe that Boxing does way more good than harm -- I am not a parent, but I have a niece (12) and nephew (5) at school whom I dote on, I want both to get into Boxing asap -- For me Boxing teaches discipline, self control, respect, patience all much needed qualities in people -- A friend of mine at work who is a massive MMA fan said to me only yesterday that Britain would be a much better place if every child learned a martial art at school .... None of this is to belittle the tragedy of Patrick Day and others, I personally have watched "live" as in on TV, 4 young men lose their lives as result on Boxing, and seen many more serious injuries -- But I will be at Farooq v MacGregor next month cheering both men on ...Boxing is the toughest, most brutal sport of all, of that there is no doubt, but that's only part of what Boxing is.. BTW, for anyone interested , this is the campaign I mention https://glovesupknivesdown.co.uk/
  7. The choice now is 'no deal BREXIT' or this crappy 'deal BREXIT'. If you block the deal BREXIT which is basically not leaving the EU in anything but name really (May's shitey deal with a couple of tweaks) you will be essentially voting for no deal Brexit. The idea that BREXIT of some kind is not going to happen because the SNP stop it somehow is a fantasy. Taking Bojo the clowns deal BREXIT is about the closest to staying in the EU you can get at this point. i.e. it is staying in without any of the rights and privileges of membership. So why not use it to get what we want at the same time... Or sink it and then get blamed for no deal BREXIT and with fuck all to show for it. You can tell deal BREXIT is not actually BREXIT at all by Farage's reaction.
  8. I think he's able to play right back tbf which would be handy.
  9. Counter intuitive I know but apparently having headguards increased the incidence of head injuries and that's why they stopped using them in amateur boxing. It's a combination of the headguards restricting vision but also boxers not protecting their head enough as they think the headguard will be sufficient. Basically, without headguards, boxers take more care.
  10. It does make some sense from the point of view that the SNP would be seen to be helping England get what they voted for - champions of democracy and all that. What he's overlooking is how that'd be perceived up here, especially by a salivating MSM that still bring up 1979 whenever they can. The SNP should never fall into the trap of siding with a tit like Johnson.
  11. He's looked good in the few games I've seen him. He needs to keep playing first team football to keep improve.
  12. Therein lies the problem. You could make headguards compulsory, but if you take away the risk of serious injury/death then that'll lessen boxing's appeal to many (sadly). Maybe one way would be where someone is so far behind at the halfway point that the ref calls a halt as there'd be little point in continuing. Also stop this nonsense of feeding an up-and-coming prospect a steady stream of easy opponents to build his record up, some of whom take the fight at very short notice. As I said, I used to be a fight fan. Just not sure how you can justify it in this day and age.
  13. That's not an agenda. That's trying to push up their shite sales figures. You obviously think there's a reason behind this behaviour and I just wanted to know what you think.
  14. Good morning Davy. Stainless from EASTA , two seats on Limassol bus please money paid via PayPal 5 mins ago.Cheers
  15. No. The object of F1 isn't to maim or injure someone.
  16. Papers reporting this morning that Man City want to buy Hickey in January and loan him back to Hearts. We are facing the very real prospect that in a few years three of the best teams in the world will have a Scottish left back hahaha. Our back four at the 2022 World Cup: Hickey Tierney Robertson Taylor With Barry Douglas on the bench...
  17. Today
  18. Best thing to come out of this will be making it safer and changing the culture around fighters getting battered beyond fights are stopped, not easy if that’s what fans are wanting to see
  19. sun bathing High pressure jobs shift work i picked deleterious for a reason. Traditional martial arts have been shown to be highly ineffective against people trained in boxing kickboxing wrestling and grappling (BJJ catch wrestling sambo etc)
  20. 4 non members with our group need tickets also
  21. I see his latest one is that the SNP should get behind Johnson's deal in return for a section 30 order. Putting to one side that would go against how Scotland voted in the EU referendum, he's trying to back that up by some bogus Twitter poll which will presumably show that people who were going to vote Yes would still do that regardless. That's not the point. To *win* a referendum you need to get more people who voted No in 2014 to vote Yes and so using tactics to secure a referendum that makes that more difficult in self defeating. It really is deranged.
  22. That's probably about a month's wages for them. It would certainly make me think twice about doing similar (if I was a Bulgarian racist).
  23. Think this team actually need to have an out of control party. As much drink as they can handle and do many lines off a hookers stomach. Smoke some joints etc or take pooder. Be amazed how much better they'd feel.
