    I'm not really comfortable with this interweb thingy. If I tell you the size and colour, will you find a fleece for me?
  3. I'll get in before Bannerman does. We weren't partly relegated Good work in Nutmeg btw
  4. Dunfermline away at Kelty next Tuesday at 2pm. Probably head over to this assuming no lorries overturn on the FRB Postponed

    Not really a fair comparison is it? Comparing a once in a lifetime event to a run of the mill league game, so it's hard to see what point you're making. My local side Bonnyrigg Rose (average home crowd 200) got 1500 v Dumbarton recently. This week they play Kirkintilloch Rob Roy in the last 8 of the Scottish Junior Cup. There'll probably be a couple of thousand there. The problems facing Scottish football are no different from the problems facing other small nations in light of the corporate greed and globalisation of the sport encouraged by satellite tv. The attendances per capita have been discussed on here before, but stand up well against similar small nations. I was at 3 games in Portugal recently and their attendances are shocking compared to ours, and they have 11M people. BTW I've seen South Shields this season - favourites for the other final place in the Vase.
  6. County have looked pretty decent in the two derbies so far. When you're at the bottom it's easy to feel that all the other teams are better. Yet apart from the two derbies County have actually been worse than us in the league. Same goes for Hamilton - another side we've failed to beat.
  7. Hmmm... £22 + booking fees v Canada at Easter Road. Slightly tempted as it's local. £30 upwards + fees v Slovenia at Hampden in what is effectively a friendly. Taking the piss a bit. Add in a ticket for Mrs Mantis and it's taking the piss a lot.
  8. Mentioned further up the page that I saw Cowdenbeath v Albion on Saturday. It's a mystery to me why the Albion keeper is in there as he hardly got his gloves dirty. I would imagine Scott Brown is a shoe-in though, even though I never saw him this week.
  9. He's already a big miss. If he hadn't been injured we wouldn't be in this hole and Yogi/Richie wouldn't have wasted their budget gambling on so many duds.
  10. ...... and he's gone
  11. He seemed to pick up a foot injury so I wondered if he would be out anyway. Not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing anyway. Also Osman picked up a knock in the same incident... but never underestimate our potential to play shyte at Firhill.
  12. Had a look at Cowdenbeath today where manager Liam Fox is under pressure as his side are now 7 points adrift of Edinburgh City and Clyde at the bottom of SPFL2. A playoff beckons - this will be against either the HL champions or East Kilbride, who appear to have the LL sewn up with only 2 more wins required from their final 5 games. In an uncanny resemblance to watching ICT, The Blue Brazil missed a 5th minute penalty and several more chances before going down 2-0 to Stirling Albion.
  13. FTFY
  14. Works I think. Thanked me for voting.
  15. We've got a 2 game unbeaten run in the Premiership to defend against a team that haven't won in the league this month
