  1. Chris has failed to get Sergio Markarian linked in the press despite 10 years of trying. I think Stevie Aitken's a good shout, mainly because he looks like Spud from Trainspotting.
  2. Yet another IHE stooge on the board.
  3. We should definitely get Machine in, if only to destabilise Brechin in advance of next season's relegation battle.
  4. By some distance, that was the best performance i've seen from us this season. In attempting to fit our best midfielders into the team, Richie's wound up chopping and changing the shape all season but he might finally have landed on a formation that gets the best out of them. Vigurs sat behind Tansey and Draper and was the heart of some excellent passing moves - his ball through for Fisher's goal was delightful. Polworth isn't a natural wide player, but he put in a hell of a shift and is obviously more reliable defensively than Cole or Mulraney. Same team on Saturday, surely.
  5. Had a wee look back at my season so far after seeing this - i've been to 10 games (all away league games) and seen us pick up 10 of our 11 away points. Last night was magnificent.
  6. Polworth for Anier. Playing Polwarth wide is obviously not ideal, but he's versatile enough to be moved around during the game as it pans out. Plus Anier is ******* honking.
  7. Caley Park.
  8. So we're being given the stands, not the stadium. The BBC headline and title of this thread are a little misleading. Financially, what do we have to gain from ownership of the stands?
  9. Who's the landowner?
  10. matchday thread

    Hiya Roddy. You're right - big game today as is next week. Full points from these and the Rangers game will be 6 pointer in the race for Europe.
  11. matchday thread

    Interesting line-up. I assume Polwarth moves inside but does Draper drop back?
  12. I find the argument that the SNP are deliberately facilitating austerity in order to build support for independence a little far-fetched to say the least. Are you two usually gung-ho for tax rises or is this just another opportunity to put the boot in? If they'd announced a basic rate increase (the only increase that would have any meaningful effect on revenues) on Tuesday then you can be sure that Charles would've been straight on here giving it big licks on capital flight, brain drain and the rest of the Reaganite routine. Scottish Labour have put together some interesting proposals on tax and it'll be very interesting see how the clear blue water that has finally emerged between them and the SNP on taxation plays out in the debate tonight, but there are many strong arguments against raising taxes in a small part of a country that is cutting them. You may not agree with those arguments but i suspect but that your haste in labeling them "cynical" and "grievance-mongering" from the outset is motivated primarily by tribalism.
  13. I'm not a supporter of the SNP and i'm far from impressed by the tax policies they've unveiled recently, but i feel the need to correct the assumption that these amount to an acceptance of austerity. Sturgeon articulated the SNP position on austerity very clearly in the run-up to the 2015 General Election when she proposed real terms departmental spending increases of 0.5% per year for the the duration of the parliament. The SNP continues to support increases in public spending i.e. the opposite of austerity. That is their policy regardless of what you may think of the economics behind it.
