    Question - Tannoy Man

    Well it would be a lot harder if you didn't have an East Sussex accent. And I don't have it in for you. I just find it it a bit stupid to say "there will be 3 minutes playing time" when you've already had 90. It sounds stupid. Anyone who understands English can see that.

    There are not enough prostitutes or dealers in Perth.

    Question - Tannoy Man

    Ok Kevin. Have it your way. Sound like a dippit moron. Have you ever actually listened to a football commentary or watched a football match. You are literally the only person I have ever heard use the phrase "there will be x minutes of playing time" and thats why you will never announce for anything other than pishy wee club from perth. Sorry to sound like an issue but you are literally the only person, out of all the football i have ever watched and listened too, that presents injury time in such a mornic manner. Match of the Day. ITV sport. World cup coverage. Etc: all call it the proper term.

    Question - Tannoy Man

    Kevin. Please please, please say additional or extra or injury or added-on or appended or spare or supplementary. Seconadry time, dependent time, reserve time, over and above time. Pick one of those words, whichever one sounds nicest. Just please stop saying "playing time". You don't even say "added playing time". Just "playing time" and everytime I hear it I cringe because it sounds childish and moronic and as if the announcer doesn't know the time quota of a football match. Can you understand what I'm saying?

    Question - Tannoy Man

    Kevin there is one thing I'd like you to do as the McDiarmid park tannoy man. When you are announcing injury time could you please say "there are x minutes, thats x minutes of injury time to be played". Currently you say "there will be x minutes of playing time". Does this not sound a bit daft too you? I mean I'm being asinine and I know what you mean it just sounds tacky and unprofessional saying "playing time" instead of "injury time".

    He has an unusual style of humour. Very dry and deadpan. Enjoy a few episodes of 15 stories high though could be a shout.

    I could quite easily get lost in Perth but then again, other than football I've only been in the city centre, 5 times maybe in the past 10 years.
  8. If we don't win this, and I mean comfortably, lets all greet and spit out our dummies and say that Del must go and that being in the SPL in a comfortable yet potentially precarious position is not proper for the players of a wee club from Perth.

    A merger.

    Would give us a chance against the Scummy weegies. Still probably woulnd't be a single player from Tayside in the squad but hey, its a step closer.

    Gareth Bale

    I've had the first feeling I've ever had as a football fan today. Some of you older lads have probably been through it a few times. Just a numbing pain from seeing someone younger than you (I'm 24, Gareth Bale is 21) utterly destroy all conceptions you had about the game of football. I mean shit. The kid would just be legal to drink in America 5 months ago and he is ripping the European champions of football apart as if they were schoolboys. The 3rd goal was borderline unbelievable. 70 minutes in, brushes it past Maicon like he was in a sunday pub leauge and utterly rips him for pace.. Astonishing. Also kind of funny to think the English left side of midfield could have been run by welshmen for the past 20 years and probably the next 10

    Has Ghostie resigned

    Ghostie is just on a break. Y'know, like Ross and Rachael.

    The obligatory 'What Music Are You Listening To?' Thread

    Having a bit of a 80's overdose at the moment. Foud the playlist for an old VHS tape my dad used to own, on the internet last night. It was called "Now thats what I call music videos volume 7". Had a bunch of classic tracks from 1986 (year i was born) on it, Queen - Kind of Magic, Genesis - Invisible Touch, Pet Shop Boys - Opportunities. Whole bunch of 80's pop.

    Clearly you have neve heard a londoner speak. Ha! Have this one kevin. Stick this up yer dictionary. Cockney: "Literally, a person born within earshot of the bells of St Mary-le-Bow church in what is now the City of London. However, technically speaking there can be no cockneys born after 1945 since the bells were destroyed by German bombs during WWII. Today the term has expanded to encompass not only those from East London specifically but from London in general."
