  1. "Oh, don't worry I'll see about that ...."
  2. Bonny, who are you voting for in the Scots Tory leadership contest ? Carlaw or Ballantyne ? I reckon you'd be a member of both the Tories and the Brexit Party because your such a committed North Briton and all.
  3. That's because I'm a bad man who needs to be put in jail.
  4. There'll probably be some fanny out there that wants McLean or Bannan to start though
  5. Fleck would be in my starting XI at the moment. Good to see Stuart Findlay back in action for Kilmarnock
  6. Supposedly Kane is eligible but it's just rumours. Palmer deserves to remain our right back for the time being though.
  7. Ross McCrorie recently went back to Rangers to train with the team for a few days but has now returned to Portsmouth. He'll be there for the rest of the season.
  8. I know. What a hero he'd have been had he tapped in the winner on his debut. At the friendly against Argentina a month or two later, there were some fuckwits in the stands who booed him when the lineups were announced.
  9. According to old BBC articles and so forth - Iwelumo as a young player at Stoke City was in fact called up for Scotland's ill-fated Far East Tour of 2002. However Vogts let him remain with Stoke when they got into promotion play offs as he thought that would be a good experience for him. He then proceeded to forget all about Iwelumo. The big man also twice turned down the opportunity to play for Nigeria too, he was really keen to play for Scotland. Shame it never worked out for him in a Scotland jersey he was clearly proud as punch to wear.
  10. I always thought that most of Rab Douglas's caps should have went to Paul Gallacher who was a better keeper and did well when he got the chance to play for Scotland. Unfortunately the Daily Record and co would have had went mental at Vogts had he replaced the Celtic No. 1 with a then struggling Dundee Utd's No 1. It's often forgotten that Lee Wilkie was on the verge of a Scotland comeback in 2007/08 before his final career ending injury. Stephen Pearson seemed to pick up a wee bit when he first moved to Derby but fell away. I think he just lost interest in pushing himself further and was happy to just plod along and pick up his wages. Shame
  11. He did. It was his debut. Team that day was: Douglas (Celtic), McNamara (Celtic), Naysmith (Everton), Pressley (Hearts), Wilkie (Dundee), Ferguson [c] (Blackburn), Fletcher (Man Utd), Dailly (West Ham), Dickov (Leicester), McFadden (Everton), McCann (Southampton). Subs: Miller (Wolves) for Dickov (66), Pearson (Motherwell) for McCann (71), Hutchison (West Ham ) for McFadden (90)
  12. Former Scotland goalkeeper and manager Bobby Brown died today aged 96. Played for Queen's Park (when they were still a top division team), Rangers and Falkirk. Five caps for Scotland between 1946 and 1952. It looks like he was the last Scotland international from the 1940s at the time of his death. Managed St Johnstone before taking the Scotland job. He was Scotland's manager when we beat England in 1967. Did anyone from the TAMB ever get to meet him and have a chat in years gone by ?
