THAT Debate, and the Beauty of Hindsight
Just listening to a programme on R. Scotland about women who worked in the Mills in Paisley.  I have worked all over Scotland in my time and Paisley has to be one of my favourite places, closely followed by Lanark.

I became close friends with a lady and her hubby who was a big Buddies fan.  Took me to Love St. on a few occasions.  Happy days.  I got a St. Mirren tammy and wore it for years in my home town without a mention, I think everyone just thought it was a black & white tammy 10.

I just wish that leader in N. Korea would concentrate on football and not nuclear weapons.  Regardless of your feelings about Britain’s nuclear detterent at least it is defensive. He wants to be aggressive. 

When you think of Spain, Italy, Germany etc. in the modern era you think of football.  (apart from holidays) .  Why can’t he aspire to that?

Rant over. 04

THAT Debate, and the Beauty of Hindsight
My niece has peen picked to be an audience member on Question Time this week from Edinburgh.  I think it’s on Friday night.  Anyway she asked us through a family group on Whats App suggestions for two questions.  I ignored it for a day since I hate politics nowadays.  But she pestered me so I said ask them when Scottish politicians are going to address the sectarian and racist singing at Ibrox?  Or at least direct the SFA & SPFL towards dealing with it.

She gave me a thumbs up for it but my older sisters came on  “see you football!! as usual.  There are more important things in the world”.  No doubt poverty & the NHS & education will be brought up, quite rightly so,but sectarianism and racism is important too! 

I don’t think she will have the nerve to ask anyhow.

“Over the weekend it was revealed that agent Mino Raiola was paid £41,390,000 for his role in the transfer of Paul Pogba from Juventus to Manchester United.
Transfer fees and agent commissions are set to soar again this summer as the second year of the new television deal kicks in with Sunderland picking up £100m for a miserable season finishing at the bottom of the Premier League”

“Celtic will collect about £3m from the SPFL for winning the title, that is made up of money from all broadcasting and commercial deals.”

(Video Celts)

It’s an ill divided world.

It Is Better To Offer No Excuse Than A Bad One
Dom16,  Was thinking about Christmas decorations today.  I took mine down.  Most neighbours have done the same.  Nowadays with the huge build up to Christmas from November we are ready to put it behind earlier than in the past.  It used to be customary to keep decorations up until 5 Jan. ‘Epiphany Eve’ or ‘twelfth night’.  It’s good to see them go up but good to see them put away for another year!
(Merry Christmas).

Historical / hysterical January transfers:
Jean-Alain Boumsong (Rangers to Newcastle £8m, 2005)
This was a strange signing on many levels, with Newcastle paying Rangers £8m for Boumsong’s services just a few months after he’d been available on a free.

The Newcastle manager?  G. Souness! 21

(Think he received an EBT after it)

Just dawned on me it might be easier to just disable the thumb down button rather than introducing a LIKE button. 

It Is Better To Offer No Excuse Than A Bad One
The thumbs down misuse mystifies me.  It happens often.  I wish we had a simple LIKE button with no dislike option.  You either vote for a post in a positive way or scroll past.  I know it would sacrifice the option of registering a strong disagreement in points of principle, but worth it I think. 

It would take away the perverse satisfaction of these trolls.  Besides, our great posters are very able to counter any dubious posts with logical counter arguments. (Which can then be LIKED)
