    The Pre-Season Thread

    Surprisingly cheap, too cheap in fact. I’d have thought £10 would have been a better balance of maximising income whilst attracting a decent crowd (bearing in mind the large travelling support and the number of local Dons fans).

    Davie Balfour's End to End by Bike

    Thank you Davie for making me aware of a condition I had never heard of, and more to the point, well done for making a huge physical and mental effort to raise funds for a worthy cause.

    EU In or Out

    The usual nationalist cherry picking and warped manipulation of figures in an attempt to mask the irrefutable truth. The SNP Scottish Government’s own figures show that the public finances here are an absolute basket case with one of the worst per capita deficits the developed world has seen in modern times. For 16/17 Scotland’s public spending was £71bn versus revenue of £58bn. A modest deficit is normal and sustainable but a mismatch of that scale is not. If we no longer want to have the shortfall covered by English taxpayers it would mean either slashing public spending or raising our taxes further, both of which would have adverse economic consequences. There are some very valid reasons to consider independence but until there is a credible solution to this issue the nationalists will never win the argument - and I think Sturgeon is smart enough to know this, hence the ongoing sabre rattling without actually making the call that the hardcore supporters crave.

    EU In or Out

    You mean apart from the massive subsidy from English taxpayers of Scotland’s public spending, without which this project probably wouldn’t be happening any time soon?! Little point bitching about the flaws of being in the UK when the person who has the power to do something about it has backtracked and doesn’t look like delivering the previously promised 2nd referendum.

    The hierarchy of preference for me is: 1. Success with local players 2. Success with outsiders 3. Failure with local players 4. Failure with outsiders

    Who would you like to see at ICT next season?

    Good signing! Interesting that we have “agreed terms with Celtic” to get him. Hard to imagine that we would pay anything more than a nominal fee. Maybe a sell on clause instead?

    Russia - The World Cup

    Astonishing that the North American bid estimates it will generate $11 billion profit for FIFA.

    Russia - The World Cup

    Well, North America is surely big enough to accommodate a 64 team tournament!

    Which is of course worlds away from him actually finding a club who will match his current contracted earnings, as we found with Raven and OFW.

    Partick have released Danny Devine (contract expired) and transfer listed Miles Storey (ie desperately want shot of him but he still has another year on his contract).

    Toni Macaroni or Plastic Whistle?

    Congrats to Partick for earning the right to play ICT next season.
