  1. Wild Rose I thought was excellent. Good Scottish film, great original music and quite poignant. I quite like Country music which is a bonus but don't think it would matter too much.
  2. I do feel a bit for McLeish. He's a passionate Scotsman, served his country well as a player, had a great spell as manager last time around, and is obviously trying his best at the moment. I don't buy into "he walked out on us last time " stuff, he came in during the middle of a campaign, done a good job and at the end of the campaign decided he wanted back into club management. He's also been let down by some of his players and they should be equally to blame. He won the nations league albeit with a poor result and performance in Israel but the flip side was a resounding 4 0 won and performance in Albania. As far as the friendlies go I was never too concerned. He had a second string squad in Peru and Mexico, we played quality teams in Belgium and Israel whilst still experimenting with his personnel. San Marino.......we won, we could've easily had 2 or 3 more goals. We laboured a bit but not too surprising given the journey to Kazakhstan beforehand and the changes to the squad. Kazakhstan was a disaster. There's one thing getting beat but to get pumped 3 0 is unacceptable. I listened to an interview prior to the game and McLeish talked about how they had done their homework on them, watched loads of matches of teams managed by their new manager, and I was confident that we'd get the result. I think it's obvious that he was out foxed and worryingly for me he didn't know how to change things early on....how there were no subs until 60 mins is unbelievable. Overall, I don't think he's as bad as he's been made out. Levein and Burley were worse. He's also operating with no proven strikers really available to him and trying to blood a new defence. I can totally see the argument for him getting sacked but our problems run deeper than McLeish and if he stays on he'll get my support. On another note, I'm not seeing this whole "he doesn't look well" stuff. He just looks older to me. I watched a number of his interviews last night and he does come across different than years ago but I don't see someone ill or someone with health problems, I just see him maybe slightly slower in his responses, possibly stressed, I suppose time will tell.
  3. Better than hearing the "I hope you die in your sleep Nacho Novo" chant outside the stadium. What kind of arsehole sings that never mind at a Scotland match?
  4. He played on Sunday afternoon! He was ruled out by the same night so if his toothache was so bad as you said he would not have been able to play on Sunday afternoon. He is a professional football player earning a fortune so for a routine toothache he would have had root canal treatment done which wouldn't stop you plating football. The fact that surgery has been required almost certainly suggests he has had a wisdom tooth extracted where he has been nursing along a sore wisdom tooth and waited until the international break to elect to have it done. Not good enough for a Scotland captain.
  5. Robertson chose to hold off and deal with a dental issue during the international break, pretty poor from a Scotland captain in my opinion.
  6. Well said. Berti gets far too much stick in my opinion. We've had worse since.
  7. The bottom line is that there is no conclusive evidence that such pitches cause injuries. The players had one important 90 minutes to play on an artificial surface, you would think they were getting asked to play on fucking lava or something. It's a convenient pathetic excuse. As a dentist I find it hard to fathom that Andy Robertson could be fine to play on Sunday but not fit to fly that night, so yes, he's clearly chose to delay treatment which I expect will be a wisdom tooth issue, as captain, that is unacceptable for me.
  8. Apparently a bust up with Mcgregor and Mcfadden post match ?
  9. I've booked the bus from the airport to Rimini. It's 17 euros and takes 90 mins. Saves any hassle getting from the airport to the train station and shouldn't take any longer, although i think there's only one bus every 2 hours or so.
  10. Anyone else who selected special delivery still waiting on their ticket? When were tickets posted? Still not had anything. I've bought 2 tickets separately for me and my son, selected special delivery for both. I got an email for random ticket collection but it doesn't specify a name so don't know if it's me or him......or both (my email is registered to both our accounts).
  11. To be fair they did send out a survey of interest for numbers but maybe loads of folk didn't bother with it. Davy's buses have approx 1600 folk so far, I'd be surprised if there's more than 1500 folk making their own way so I still reckon most folk will be OK. Anybody know how many have been sold do far?
  12. Really hope there's enough for everyone. I'm taking my 7yr old son to his first away match and he only has 3 points.

    Tennis 2017

    According to this list he's the 39th most successful men's player to ever play tennis. I'd say that's pretty good! That list is flawed as a measure of overall success though as it has many players from an era that just isn't comparable to today's game. It also doesn't include other titles, ranking, Olympic Golds etc. It also neglects the fact that everyone is aware of in that Andy was in the most difficult generations ever. You're also missing the obvious in the fact that injury (if he indeed retires) has cost him around 30% of his career and potentially his prime, missing out on more GrandSlams. I'm confident he would have added another 2 had he stayed fit. I'm sure an algorithm could be done taking into account all factors, and I'd guess it would have Andy in the top 15 male players ever. Scotland's most successful sportsman by absolute miles!
  14. Could I please have 2 seats Davy. Thanks
  15. Glasgow to Bologna, indirect flight via Amsterdam with KLM. Saturday morning to Monday night. Will be taking the train from Bologna to Rimini and staying there. Flights plus hotel about 200 all in.
