    Mate, if Nicola Sturgeon cured cancer tomorrow, the Unionists would be demanding she resigned because of rising unemployment amongst oncologists.

    League cup 2020/21.

    It will be won. Then a memorable semi final thrashing of Hibs, 4 - 1, McCann hat-trick in his last game before departing for Celtic Reserves for £1.75m + add-ons. Rangers* in the final, where we will win thanks to an extra-time May penalty, resulting in a sending-off and life-ban for Morelos for biting-off Murray Davidson’s ear. Davidson is said to be “slightly shaken but looking forward to the Hamilton game at the weekend”. A late run sees us finish 4th in the table, qualifying for Europe. Cagey will then call for Callum Davidson’s sacking, saying “he will never be the manager John Connolly was”. Tommy by this point will be manager of Dundee, well into his third newspaper campaign against the Dundee Chairman. Gordon Strachan will be caretaker manager of Celtic, and will lead them to a glorious ten-in-a-row, thanks to the total collapse of Rangers’* form following their morale-sapping defeat at Hampden, and their ten-point deduction for going into Administration. Brechin will avoid relegation to the Highland League, as all football is cancelled across the UK just before the play-offs due to recurring plagues of locusts.

    I've been keeping track of it this season and out of the 30 predictions (Both Amy Irons and Guest), I've got it as 1 win predicted, 7 draws and 22 losses. It's a miracle that we've got any points at all!!

    Just thought I'd re-visit this comment I posted after our 2-0 loss to Livingston (which at the time was our fourth defeat in five matches, and we'd only scored one goal in all five of those matches). I said I felt that after the Celtic game in early October we had a good run of fixtures to look forward to and that we should be aiming to use those games as a big opportunity to turn things round. We're now at the end of that run of fixtures and we've played 10, won 6, drawn 4 and lost none. We've also scored 23 goals in those ten matches. I don't think anyone could have asked for a better return than that and personally I'm really pleased with how things have gradually been improving. Even though I still have some reservations with the system at times, I'm impressed with how CD has quietly halted a slump without any fuss, and has us playing some strong, positive football which, most importantly, is now getting results. And on top of that we've drastically improved upon the previous season's League Cup performance. I've no idea what CD's targets are for the season but I'd say there's no reason at all why we shouldn't be aiming to be firmly into the Top 6 by the turn of the year.

    Every virus mutates and becomes immune to a vaccine. The mutations are tracked, and the vaccines tweaked, on an on-going basis. This already happens with flu. As time goes on, this should become routine. From time to time, the mutations will get a wee bit too far ahead of the tweaking, and there will be a surge in cases, again, like flu. Over time, as long as there arnt to many idiots refusing to get vaccinated, the virus should starve and largely disappear. (Unlike flu, where most people don’t get vaccinated, so it rema8ns prevalent). But we might be getting annual vaccinations for a time.

    Oh ffs take some responsibility for the decisions taken. She should have locked down Glasgow, she did not! She has always had the powers to lock down or close borders (she has just done it). I know, I know Boris! , Tooriez! Boris! Tooriez! Feeble and worn out. Freeman still in a job? Swinney still in a job? Ferrier still in a job? Dodgy Derek, still in a job? Pathetic! No leadership no control 3rd worst death rate on the planet. Treating parliament with utter contempt. Time to boot this lot into touch. The good people of Perth South did just that yesterday, change is coming!

    Poor smarmy, your blind hatred of anything the Scottish Government does really appears to be closing your mind. Let’s examine your first two paragraphs. As already stated the SG does not have the powers to furlough, had we independent we would have been able to borrow funds, as WM have done. I’m sure furloughing in Scotland would be continuing longer in that set up. Freeing hospital beds by moving folk to homes was pressed for by Carlaw and Labour and agreed by all parties. Plus, research has shown most COVID cases in care homes resulted from the movement of staff between homes. An example is the care home on Skye where staff were shipped in from London. Also, privately run care homes had higher rates of incidences than LA run homes. Who runs private homes? Primarily Tory donors with Tory ministers on their boards! you compare rates in Scotland with that in similar size countries. A key difference is they have full control of borders airports etc. Scotland needs indie to do that. as for the video.....oh dear, I thought you were a grown man.

    Must be a hell of a lot of control freaks out there, because virtually every country is doing the same - many of them for longer, and more severely. I’m sure your right though - restricting travel was never going to control a virus which, in Scotland at the moment, is - checks notes - predominantly a strain which started in Spain and was spread in July and August by idiots going on holiday to Spain, despite NS begging them not to.. Oh.

    Tbh who cares about severance payments to Lennon. Scottish football wants fans back in grounds and Celtic fans behave like that proving who can trust us to social distance. Puts the whole of Scottish football at risk of getting fans back in my opinion.

    I think clubs will have taken more notice of his 2 games against Austria and Romania than they will an entire season against Scottish opposition. He was superb, fans on Twitter were suggesting they might have found Davis’s successor. He strolled those games and I think that’s what’ll interest the English clubs. for me, £3M minimum factoring contract length and talent. I’d try and get that this summer if it were me in charge

    2023 his deal is, so realistically we've got until the end of next season to sell him. We won't match Turnbulls fee. We all have bias towards McCann, but goals sell players and Turnbulls goal record was absolutely elite for a CM. If we can make a deal that sees us eventually break the £1.8m record, I reckon I'll be happy.

    Well, he's won me round. Whilst I'm not sure about his signings (although I don't know if he really had much choice), I think in terms of tactics and game management it's pretty spot on. The players understand the system now. I think some of the problems at the start were that he was building his attack around Hendry, and that didn't really work. Now they are playing to May's strengths instead and it's paying off.

    No, these are not graphics to be proud of but blatant lies need addressing. as for your later comments, it is not NS splitting the UK (which BTW is already split into 4 nations) and rejoining the EU, it looks to be the will of the people judging by recent polls and the EU referendum results in Scotland. Anyway, the recent bill and JRM comments suggest we will end up as one country, an end to devolved parliaments. May as well do away with the 4 nations sports teams and have UK wide leagues, none of this SPFL nonsense. Then we will all be sticking together

    Just out of interest, where's all this "Tànser to OF in January" come from? Most posters on here seem to think he's a liability & not unhappy if he's not in the XI. Is it just bored journo reporting, or do they see something we don't. No comprendez.....

    Kevin Hague! The failed pet food salesman who decided one morning he was an economist? That no one asks on to the Unionist media anymore because he’s so Batshit Crazy British Nationalist that he’s too much even for them? Hilarious. Tory Boy, you’ve jumped so far over the shark, you’ve stopped being annoying and become a hilarious self-parody of the Angry Twitter Yoon. This is great entertainment. More, please. Do the one about how Sturgeon is a secret lesbian living with a French diplomat in a house in Auchterarder - Yoon Twitter does that once a week or so, always good for a laugh. Boris’ Barmy Army.

    The Covid & politics thread

    How could Scotland lockdown in February without the powers to issue Furlough etc? Like it or not, that decision had to come from Westminster. It’s not a devolved issue. In fact, less than a month ago, as England was announcing emergency funding for areas in England like Manchester, the other home nations STILL had no idea if they would be able to utilise the same emergency funding if required or if we had to “lockdown” with England to get it.

    The Covid & politics thread

    How about failing to lock down in February when a major outbreak was reported? Instead the people we told go to the football, go to concerts, go to Murrayfield with 20000 french fans (France a month ahead of us on the curve) How about sanctioning the dispatch of thousands of pensioners into the care system resulting in thousands of deaths? Half of our COVID deaths have been in care homes. Comparable nations of Denmark, Norway, Slovakia, Finland count their casein hundreds, we are currently over 4000. Truth is, ‘Nicola’ could flay a litter of kittens live on TV and the Nats would find a way of blaming Westminster. This cult need called out it’s getting like North Korea. Look at this nauseating tripe produce from a publicly funded broadcaster..... what kind of political movement would use kids in this way?

    I wouldn't be having a go at NS... here in Victoria, it's been draconian almost from day 1. And no-one knew why. At its peak there was something like 800 new cases. In all of Australia a total of 800 deaths. It was still in place when there were 3 new cases. Shops & businesses closed, no bars, restaurants, curfews, 5 km radius, no one allowed to visit etc, only allowed outside for 1 hour, no interstate flights.... complete lockdown. Because of 3 new cases in an elderly home. Folk have gone bananas, jobs lost. Even with 0 new cases & 0 deaths for 2 weeks. Now it's stage 3. No-one allowed at sporting events. I think NS is doing the right thing given the numbers in England.

    Ibrox latest...

    It’s 2012 all over again. They’ve also fallen behind on their HRMC payments - again. Dodgy money to finance a team they can’t afford, to stop the 10 in a row, and a gamble on getting CL money to pay it back. Will likely only end one way again, it’s happening in real time, and no one is doing anything about it. If the SFA adopted the Fair Play rules, that would stop it, but of course, they won’t.
