    I hope you're better at shouting insults to our own players than you are at communicating your point on here, otherwise they'll have no idea how poor a game they're having. This doesn't even make sense.

    Some mouthy gobs**te sittin' behind me seemed to detest the idea we would pass the ball backwards at all today. Would not f**king shut up about it. You and him would have a lot to talk about, I reckon.

    Next Seasons Strip Speculation Megathread

    Agreed. Trim needs to be smaller and white. Also, there's no orange for QTS' logo. Apart from that, it's a nice strip.

    Cracking stat. That really can't have happened often, surely? Paging CB....

    One to Eleven with Jérôme Vareille

    Was going to comment on this. That is a proper decent team.

    Boydy for player of the year

    I don't understand. I was originally responding to the claim that Scotland is the only country where Scott Brown is considering a good footballer. I disagreed and suggested he would cut it at a higher level than Celtic, but his ambition is to be the Celtic legend he's clearly considered as by them. I'm not arguing for his inclusion in the POTY awards. I don't think he should be there for this season's performances. I'm arguing against some people saying he's s**te when he's clearly not as evidenced by his inclusion in this award and his trophies over the years.

    Boydy for player of the year

    No-one said this. You've exaggerated to try and make your point...at this stage you're hitting pretty much every logical fallacy going. Is your total argument that Scott Brown is not as good as people/media think he is?

    Boydy for player of the year

    Did you read my second sentence? It covers that exact point. Think Makelele, or more recently Ngolo Kante. Both employed primarily as spoilers, but excellent footballers. Now Scott Brown is nowhere near their class or ability, but compared to his immediate peers, he is an excellent footballer. I disagree, but concede they're close in ability. Playing at a higher level doesn't necessarily mean you're a better player. It's all about the ambition of the player in question. Scott Brown might be perfectly happy with his career at Celtic, winning titles and competing in the CL every season compared to skirting with relegation each season in the EPL.

    Boydy for player of the year

    Wait, what's your comparison here? You can be an excellent footballer (compared to your immediate peers, he obviously isn't excellent compared to Spain's midfield for example) and still have the ability to break a game up to the betterment of your team. I can think of dozens of examples of excellent teams who have employed a midfield 'destroyer' to break play up. Scott Brown, now, is in that type of category, but just clearly not as good as the best examples of such. We don't qualify for major tournaments for a number of reasons. Scott Brown and his ilk aren'twholly one of them. Your penchant for hyperbole is escalating, stop doubling down.

    Boydy for player of the year

    Hyperbolic nonsense. By all means don't like the man, but he's an excellent footballer and would comfortably cut it in the Championship/lower Premiership down south. He's a spoiler because he doesn't need to be anything else for that Celtic midfield to function and dominate the league the way it has in the last 3-4 years. He's getting older, so his game is naturally declining and I agree with everyone who is saying he hasn't been the driving standout like he has in previous years but will still likely get the award. Worse players than him have made the grade at a higher level (McCarthy, McArthur to name two IMO) *edit* and my god, every other league has utter jobbers who's sole role is to spoil games with their thuggery, Scott Brown and Scotland isn't unique in this.
  11. Is he trying to be this generation's Champagne Charlie Nicholas?
  12. Really don't understand the question. Would we play one of our best players against the best teams in the league, just in case we sign him for next season??? Bwuh? Or is it, IF we sign him for next season, would we play him against the smaller teams as his effectiveness seems to be slightly less?

    Lee Clark on Steve Clarke and Billy Bowie

    Left the club in a better position tactically, financially and better off in the table than when he arrived. By those measures he was a short-term success.

    Hamilton match thread (Fred)

    We took 2500 to Hamilton away!!!?? That is absolutely superb!

    post split fixtures

    I can't get too down about the post split fixtures as it was immensely unlikely we'd be top 6 as recently as November. No-one expected us to be here, so I'm enjoying messing with whatever min wage intern had to come up with this. I'm delighted we're in the mix to seriously affect the European qualification, and a chance to right the wrong of not beating Hibs or the Dons.

    Sweet. Appreciated.

    Ignored Users?

    Does this function work on this forum? There are a couple of regular posters who are nothing but utter trolls and bursting with utter negativity. My experience on here would be incalculably better if I didn't have see anything they post. I tried it on one user in my profile settings, but it said I'm not allowed to ignore that user. Is there something special with certain users, or is it the forum function that isn't quite right?

    Incomings and outgoings.

    Well, we can close this up now, lads. This one won't be topped.

    A Thing of Beauty ...

    And that's the main difference for me. All those things mentioned would combine to form a team devoid of ideas and graft and we'd've been lucky to come away with a point from Firhill and other places this season. However, the baseline has completely shifted since SSC has come in. Now, the absolute lowest the team goes is a superb level of effort. It might not be pretty, but it's proving to be very, very effective.

    Accies home, Fred

    Total fluke strike, was just putting it back into the danger zone. Very bitty game, no fluency at all. Accies fans have already wound Boydy up, so he's due a goal anyway. Nothing coming off for Brophy and Erwin took his goal very, very well.

    Jordan Jones

    4-5m is a pipe dream. A 7 figure sum is realistic. Would be a shame. Here he's guaranteed first team football with a proven top class coach.

    Hamilton Home game

    The team kinda writes itself, with obvious replacements for anyone missing for any reason. It's an excellent problem for any head coach to have.

    And now you want it bursting at the seams? You said you'd be happy with 5000. It's more than that, and getting better. Now you aren't happy with that. Which is it? It's tough to put your hands up and admit you were wrong, I know. But you would be better to just slink out this thread and not post in it anymore rather than continuing to debate a point where your view is embarrassingly false.

    Jamie MacDonald on-message

    Previously your issue was that crowds aren't up since SC came in, and this was proved utterly false. Going by the above, your issue now is what people said was the solution to the poor crowds. Feel free to disagree with people's opinions, you can't really prove it one or the other. However, anecdotally, a winning team on the park has contributed greatly to the increase in crowds....so.....dunno how you'd want to take that one. You shift the goalposts whenever you're proved wrong. I hope we win the league next season. I would love to see what your issue with Killie/Killie fans will be then, because we all know it will be something.

    Jamie MacDonald on-message

    McLean...what's your angle here? What is it you actually get out of banging this drum? The people you communicate with on here, by and large, attend games. Your ever-present message seems to be for those who aren't or haven't. We get it, we would all love for Motherwell's 30% increase in attendance (which I completely don't believe, by the way) since Sir Steve came in, but it's not realistic. 8 years of mediocrity does not get turned around in 6 months. You are constant. It is about the only positive thing I can think of when describing your 'attendance' on this forum, but it makes me weary. You seem to think if you say something often enough, it becomes truth. You've previously been utterly discredited in the past. I just don't understand why you absolutely have to bring something negative to the current positivity party we're having, just so you can be all 'told you so' if/when something negative eventually happens. Consider this a massive bite for you. Well done. Hope you get many joy joy feelings from it.
