Thanks for that


Just saying, people are quick to sneer and mock, just give the man a chance. St Mirren domin8ed the Scottish Championship last year.

Re: CONFIMRED: Sone Aluko

By the way, I thought it was poor of the Fulham 'exececutive' to come out with that in public. As in, 'Look at me, look what we fleeced them for, haha!'. tbf, Hammond's dined out on 'half a million for Andy Hughes' for years He should eat free for life for that deal as far as I'm concerned... + to ...

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

Home kit would be a dream.

I can see gold being used again to mark the 20th anniversary (I think someone mentioned it earlier).

Re: CONFIMRED - Dave Edwards

Lol. Some people just never learn. Am I alone in having a little giggle at that DD response? Yeah I do not see the problem in that. All I did was give to Ian as good as he gave to me.

Re: CONFIMRED - Dave Edwards

Life is complex, not everything that goes wrong has someone at fault. Blame culture helps no one. For example, it's no one person's fault you're a div, and blaming your parents helps no one. However it is your parents fault for not loving you enough and giving you enough attention, and your school ...

Re: England 2018 World Cup poll

IF things go according to seeding/reputation/some kind of footballing logic then I think we'd end up with either Brazil or Germany in the Quarters. I think that's probably as far as we can expect to get considering their squads. Having said that, I'd still fancy us cause a bit of an upset and beat ...

Meh, still didn't impress me. Plus, as I said, he is not better than what we have got. Would rather we try harder to sign Elphic than pick up has been journeymen. Assuming he isn't washed up, he is clearly better than anything we have (and Elphick). Unless you envisage Ilori and Moore having a 14 y...
