  1. So there is a chance that this may actually be bullshit then ?
  2. It looks like Jamie Walker is going back to Hearts permanently. He's asked Wigan to tear up his contract.
  3. When the answer is eventually revealed, would you please provide a source for it ? A book, webpage or newspaper article will do.
  4. I reckon this could be a "trick" question ..... How do we know it's not a player from the women's team ?
  5. There are some great archive documentaries available for a long time yet on iPlayer. I recently enjoyed watching ...... "Quatermass and the Pit" (1958-59 - every episode of the legendary sci-fi/horror serial that still holds up well today.) https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p00trhv3/episodes/player "Barry Norman in Celebrity City" (1982 - life in Hollywood among film and television stars. The way Barry Norman gently takes the piss out them is quite funny) https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p058d78x/tuesday-documentary-barry-norman-in-celebrity-city "Engines Must Not Enter the Potato Siding" - (1969 - life on British Railways at a time of great change) https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p012d0t5 Burke and Hare - (1979 - Magnus Magnusson recounts the infamous murderers escapades and the doctor who used their services.) https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p02vh7gq/living-legends-6-burke-and-hare "The Ealing Comedies" - (1970 - a history of the superb comedy films made in the forties and fifties by Ealing Studios. Includes interviews with the directors, writers, producers and actors who made these wonderful films) https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p02rrdyx "Who Killed the Lindbergh Baby?" - (1982 - written and narrated by Ludovic Kennedy, he strongly questions whether Bruno Hauptman really was guilty of kidnapping and murdering the son of Charles Lindbergh. It includes interviews with a policeman who was part of the investigation, one of the trial jury, Hauptman's best friend and Hauptman's widow) https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p0572v6f "The Dracula Business" - (1974 - an analysis of public fascination with vampires and Bram Stoker's creation "Dracula" in particular, presented by Stoker's great-nephew) https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p027vs31
  6. ".... you moaning, skirt wearing Jocko bastard." was the bit that the editor cut out.
  7. He was never called up by England at any level. Besides his Scotland career lasted seven years.
  8. Dominic Matteo did make the bench twice for the full England squad. Andy Goram was also once on the bench for England U21s. Was it Neil Sullivan ?
  9. Would a lovely individual you are. As it happens I'm straight but I think that two men or two women together is beautiful and natural. Does that upset you ?
  10. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/48731196
  11. Had England entered the 1930, 1934 and 1938 World Cups, they would probably have won at least one of them.
  12. Arsenal have confirmed they have had a bid for Kieran Tierney rejected.
  13. Forgot to add Steven Naismith had a goal wrongly disallowed for offside against the Netherlands's at Hampden in 2009.
  14. Crocker isn't the problem. Provan is the real problem. He loves it when we lose and he hates it when we win.
  15. This romantic veneration of the House of Stuart annoys me. The Highland Clearances would likely still have taken place under the Stuarts. Although many of their followers were anti-Union, Charles Edward Stuart and his father never had any intention of dissolving the union of 1707.
  16. That's the one. Saltire and Onion Jack on the front. On the back a picture of Farage and a steam train on the Glenfinnan Viaduct. Straight into the recycle bin it went.
  17. Has anyone else been getting those "Be a Brexit Braveheart" posters in their post ?
  18. Didn't Jim the Hammer's talks with Rangers break down because he made it a condition that if he became manager, the "nae cafflicks" policy had to end ?
  19. Didn't France get a goal wrongly ruled offside against us at Hampden back in 2006 ? We should have got penalties against Georgia away in 2007 (McFadden fouled in the box) and Macedonia away in 2008 (Maloney fouled in the box).
  20. This is good news. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/48717856 It would be wonderful to have him back for the Russia and Belgium games this September.
  21. Because Steven Gerrard isn't remotely interested in giving Scottish players a chance ?
  22. I remember that one. United kept knocking back the bids and Rangers kept coming back with extra £100,000 added to their offer, they made five or six bids The so called "journalists" and ex players writing for The Record and The Sun predictably moaned about how "Dundee Utd are being selfish in trying to stop Goodwillie's dream move to Ibrox". Rangers passed away a year or two later.
  23. If you want to go doon your local shopping centre this Saturday and randomly start belting out the selected hits of Wet Wet Wet, then go for it
