  1. Eric can be a good player, just not strong enough for SPL, both in tackling and passing.

    Disnae tackle, disnae pass, disnae shoot. Not saying he can't, just saying he disnae! Nice bloke though.
  3. Hi everyone. I wanted to send you a holiday greeting, but it is so difficult in today's world to know exactly what to say without offending someone. So I met with my lawyer yesterday, and on her advice I wish to say the following: Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low stress, nonaddictive, gender neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practised with the most enjoyable traditions of religious persuasion or secular practices of your choice with respect for the religious/secular persuasions and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all. I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2010, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make our country great (not to imply that Scotland is necessarily greater than any other country) and without regard to the race, creed, colour, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wishee. By accepting this greeting, you are accepting these terms: This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal. It is freely transferable with no alteration to the original greeting. It implies no promise by the wisher to actually implement any of the wishes for her/himself or others and is void where prohibited by law, and is revocable at the sole discretion of the wisher. This wish is warranted to perform as expected within the usual application of good tidings for a period of one year or until the issuance of a subsequent holiday greeting, whichever comes first, and warranty is limited to replacement of this wish or issuance of a new wish at the sole discretion of the wisher. Disclaimer: No trees were harmed in the sending of this message; however, a significant number of electrons were slightly inconvenienced. Regards J.
  4. I'll admit it's taking time, but this team are improving with every game. I thought our passing game last night was as good as I've seen for years, the defense is starting to gel, and plenty of width on both sides of the park. Only criticism was some unnecessary stray passes in midfield and a lack of confidence in front of goal. Rossco back made a huge difference and although not his greatest fan, Imrie would have enjoyed himself last night. All in all a good day at the office. :mellow:
  5. I like the top, but the shorts don't match. It looks like two different strips. A white flash on the shorts would improve the whole strip. Saying that, I have seen worse!
  6. Nothing new there then........ :mellow:
  7. Read in todays P&J that Iain and his brother have been arrested outside an Aberdeen nightclub on assualt charges. Does this hint at why he was released? Only a thought.
  8. Someone always takes it too far! :021:
  9. C'mon Ayr, some of the games against them over the years have been awesome. The 4 - 3 win ranks almost as highly as the celtic cup win in my league of epic ICT games.
  10. Stunned at the level of support for Imrie. I like him as a player but he has serious discipline problems. The reason he was hooked was because he had lost the plot and was in danger of being yellow or red carded. He was fairly (and easily) robbed a few times, and deliberately fouled his opponent. In recent games he has made decent runs down the wing but has also run out of ideas or steam when he gets there, the ball ending up out for a throw or goal kick. A lack of discipline was CC's downfall, it may also be the end of CB.
  11. Q. What is the Capital of Iceland? A. ?3.50.
  12. The match commander on saturday was Andy Cowie, a policeman with a sensible approach to policing. I have no doubt there would have been a wee word in someones ear to "cool it". If theres no hassle, why create some? Long may the tolerant approach continue. Well played section "G".
  13. Here we go again, same old sh*te. Season after season we rely on "teamwork" and "team spirit", when what we really need is for the team to learn how to pass the ball to someone else wearing the same strip. For those who were there watching the St Mirren game, you might have noticed their pre match warm up, scared the crap out of me when I realised their whole routine was fast one touch passing! My fears were realised when they controlled the game for most of the ninety minutes. You can be as fit as f*ck, but if you give the ball away like we do you are going to lose. You cannae score if you don't have the ball, and know how to keep it. It will not be our lack of goals or how many we concede that will bury us, it wil be our lack of ability to keep possession that will do it. The latter will lead to the former. On a brighter note, we have a young team who could really go places, top six is definately up for grabs. Go get em!
