Just thought - if Raith beat Arbroath by more than 4 goals, they'll overtake us at the top!

 

We're at the top of the league after one round of games, and we'll stay there for the entire season.

 

That's my (not so) bold prediction.  :thumb:

My first thought. Null and void is suddenly looking good for Celtic, unlike last season. Allows them to reset and keep 10 in a row on track. And like last time they'll be able to push through their preferred outcome behind the scenes and though the media. I'm guessing if null and void has any chance it has to be done before the halfway stage though. They'll use the rationale of no fans being allowed back.

 

We'll then have the whole charade of pretending to discuss reconstruction but the likely outcome is null and void will mean no relegation or promotion.

 

 

Nah, the season will go ahead behind closed doors. 

 

Also, if it does go to a vote of the league was called, how would rangers vote if they were top?

In 2014 we went top, and stayed top after 4 games.

102nd Milne Cup

 

Orkney 0 -1 Shetland

 

Perfect result for Shetland's new (Hearts-supporting and occasionally on here) manager, Neil Fenwick.

 

 


I played central midfield against Aitken a few years ago when Shetland were training against the locals sides. Guys different class. Glad to see the Orcadians put in their place.

So STV have an article online about gathering outside with pyrotechnics but the news bulletin says it was largely adhered to with no mention of it...

 

Plenty groups been meeting up on my Facebook. I guess we'll see the damage in a couple of weeks.

In fairness, it was a tremendous performance for the Lochend side.  Not every team goes to Dingwall and manages to score 0.

 

One of those elite fixtures that we can only dream about.

I'm sure Eddie's nephew was (might still) on here at one time. I think he said he was a plasterer. (or maybe it was plastered) 😞

The "Cruden" never wore horned helmets Colin, thats an urban myth that grew with whatever book it was calling them Vikings, Vikings is a 19th century word. Most Cruden would wear helmets and some were adorned with bird wings.

Sportscene tonight. 
Scott Brown touched the ball once. (Short free kick). He was playing in front of defence. Didn’t mark a single player. Lost every challenge. 
the longer his mate Lennon keeps him in the team the better.

I won't be looking at all the Old Firm post match discussion.

 

But it strikes me Celtic are more interested in finances because there's a player they could have signed with an extra £5 million they were unwilling to pay.

This text would appear to suggest otherwise. 

 

In the Anglo-Saxon poem, Widsith from around the 9th century, a word similar to the word Vikings is mentioned and that is the word ”Wicings”. This word could refer to the word Vikings, however, the word does not seem to be explained.

 

Plus Snorri Sturluson's writings in Egil's Saga from the 13th century, referencing Egil's life in the 10th.

Likewise for around £5-6m they could have bought Hickey and McGinn as perfect replacements for Tierney and Brown. Instead they pay over £7m for more forwards they don't play when they've got Scotland's best striker in Griffiths on their books if they knew how to manage him.

Fans of both clubs welcome by the "hail hail" nitwit who organised this idiotic trip. However, the coach had to stop 4 times as fights broke out. 

Must have been a dream day out.

I hope the organiser and the bus company get well and truly done for this, plus asked to supply a list of all who travelled.

 

Equally, the pub in Carlisle should have turned them away at the door.  Arseholes.

I think the GB should be congratulated as their actions in gathering in large numbers and setting off pyrotechnics outside the ground will ensure that any chance of fans being able to go back to games is well and truly killed stone dead

Ta, Iain.

Not sure if Eddie, senior, would remember me as it was many moons ago. To be honest I can't even mind what he looked like but I do remember the name.

I have had a couple of conversations with young Eddie on here, a while back.

I think Rangers are clearly the better side. They have comprehensively outplayed Celtic in their last 3 meetings. I would also say they appear to be a far better coached team. They're superior to Celtic in terms of Euro performances.

The bookies too now deem Rangers the better team and have installed them as odds on favourites for the title at 8/11 with Celtic evens.

I think Rangers could beat Celtic more often than not either home or away but that wont necessarily win a title. They still have to prove they can beat the rest so consistently as Celtic do.

You'll likely ken more than me Boof given where you reside. I stayed in Cruden Bay for a bit and the locals were very proud that the village name had been changed from Port Errol to celebrate their heritage.

Exactly what my wife asked me earlier. The sooner blatant breaches of Covid restrictions are dealt with by fines, instead of yet another slap on the wrist, the sooner this virus will be conquered.

Sorry not trying to be contrarian but what exactly does that mean and how do you conquer a virus by issuing fines?

 

This is right up there with Sturgeon's idea that "we can eliminate the virus even if we can't eradicate it" or that the virus "likes to jump" lol. We need to be far more careful with our language over what we are trying to achieve here, as it's driving both fear and unrealistic expectations.

It's simple really. If I was fined £10000 for holding a house party, or £1000 for attending one, I wouldn't do it again, and I'm sure most people would be the same. If people don't congregate so much, there is less chance of the virus spreading, and the sooner it will be conquered.

Slightly off topic but Dont know if it's been mentioned already but the word Viking, actually means to go raiding and doesn't refer to an actual race of people. So the correct term is to go a Viking.
