  1. Her saving grace is that the SNP probably have bigger target seats but the Scottish libDems will throw the kitchen sink at that seat. They also have previous for creative accounting when it comes to election spending. No doubt there'll be a lot of national spending for "party leader" Swinson spent in "candidate" Swinson's constituency.
  2. One of the benefits of having a party leader in your constituency, you get the full range of whackos on the ballot paper. In 2017 we had 13, this time around it looks like we're down to 4.
  3. He does indeed but at least McBurnie has time on his side although I'm holding out much hope at this point. If you look back through Fletcher's career then he's not a prolific goalscorer, his career average in all competitions is a goal every 3.69 games which isn't great for a forward. The most goals he's scored in a season s 14 for Hibs 12 years ago. A good season for him is 11 or 12 goals.
  4. He really didn't, unless you think 53 goals over seven seasons is a decent return.
  5. Still at a loss as to why Taylor was booked in that challenge - attacking his studs with his shin? The ref struck me as one of those that would issue a lot of petty bookings but shite himself when it came to a red, weak,
  6. Finishing third in this group might have been considered okay if we'd finished a close third behind Russia, if we'd been competitive in the group and there was confidence that we were putting a decent team together. None of those are the case.
  7. I agree with you 100%, I think he fundamentally doesn't have what it takes to play at this level but I'm not going to castigate him for it nor will I criticise the manager for picking him until and unless there are better options. That said anyone - presumably Neil McCann - who thinks he'll improve our team needs his head read.
  8. All of that is true but none of it means Stephen O'Donnell is good enough to play international football.
  9. It's possible to have realistic expectations but to also realise that those expectations are far from what they should be.
  10. The person having the worse game by a country mile is the referee. The best you can say is he's not favouring either side, he's been equally bad for both.
  11. I wouldn't try and assume anything from local council by- elections.
  12. These are the seats that the Brexit party are standing in (current incumbent first, runner up) Aberdeen North (SNP, LAB) Caithness, Sutherland and Ross (Lib Dem , SNP ) Dundee West (SNP, Lab ) Edinburgh N&L (SNP, Lab) Bonny79? Edinburgh SW (SNP, Con) Glasgow N (SNP, LAB) Glasgow S (SNP, LAB) Glasgow SW (SNP, LAB) Glenrothes (SNP/LAB) Inverness NB&S (SNP, Con) Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath (LAB/SNP) Linlithgow and East Falkirk (SNP/LAB) Orkney and Shetland (LDEM, SNP) Perth and North Perthshire (SNP, CON) Ross, Skye and Lochaber (SNP, CON) Other than the GB wide tactic of standing down in seats held by the Tories, there doesn't seem to be any pattern to where they are standing, in some it could favour the SNP, in some it could hamper them. I suspect they're just putting people up wherever they could get a candidate to stand. The Brexit candidate in Linlithgow and East Falkirk's name is Marc Bozza - it'd be great if he married someone called Ritchie and they combined the surnames.
  13. Now the nominations are closed. SNP, Tories, Labour and Lib Dems are standing in all 59 seats. Greens are standing in 22 seats including a handful of marginal seats. Brexit Party are standing in 15.
