  1. USC on the High Street started their closing down sale today. They close in March
  2. Campus Sports moving from the High Street. No word on where yet though. https://www.facebook.com/CampusSportsPerth/?fref=nf
  3. from what i heard from a friend of the owners, pandora basically told them if they wanted to keep the franchise they had to open a Pandora only store in a high street location. it;s probably what helped push Bertie Browns over the end....so to speak
  4. I coach a youth team and can tell you summer football would not be easy. If we had been playing summer football this summer we would not have played a game all summer due to players being away on family days, holidays etc. You would need a complete culture shift in Scotland for it to change at any level, & unfortunately I don't see it happening.
  5. went back to dumfries this weekend for the 1st time in a couple of year. similar types of towns with Perth being bigger, but compared to dumfries Perth is a thriving metropolis.
  6. The Neutral

    E.p.l.

    & BT from next season
  7. I thought it was kind of crap of FIFA not to have the players who were in the running for Golden Boot at the Final. Rodriguez deserved his moment to walk up the steps with Neuer & Messi(!!) and get his award.
  8. despite how pish the game was..it will still draw the viewing figures for BBC Scotland.
  9. I moved here from Dumfries about 18 years ago and wouldn't want to move back. Both are similar types of towns. If you think Perth is bad in all the things mentioned above, then go have a look at Dumfries. I go back annually to see friends and family but it really is a very depressing place these days and I look forward to coming back "home".
  10. That's pretty good for the kids prices. As long as they don't do something stupid like decide the kids price applies to under 12's
  11. would prefer them served off a plate.....
  12. Surely we support the team, regardless of where they play? You play where you play.

  14. I don't think he would have to really...I would guess he could put up to the money to own Sevco but not actually hold any position within the club. I might be wrong on that but that is my understanding of it.
  15. Pro-Youth teams are also supposed to approach the Secretary of the club they want to sign a player from, before approaching the player. Never happens though. No youth club would ever stand on a lads way but it's common courtesy.
  16. Does Davidson have a contract beyond the end of this season? Twitter saying he has tendon damage .
  17. Of course they are going to be offering discounts all over the place to their own fans. That's their bread and butter and they need to keep them as happy as possible. Makes perfect sense to me, and I would like to think Saints would offer more to us than away fans.
  18. This is from the club site. http://www.perthstjohnstonefc.co.uk/newsitemsdetail.php?param=2804 I think it's been mentioned but anyone who turns up pissed or appears to be under the influence can be turned away. They kick off and then they can be lifted.
  19. where you seeing this? i can't find anything online about it
  20. Speaking to a South African friend, he believes that Mandela being alive in many ways kept the peace and the more extreme elements of the ANC in line out of messiah like reverence for him. Now Mandeka has passed he truly believes that South Africa will head down a far more violent path as the extremes on both sides crawl out from under their rocks.
  21. his wife is certainly happy...i don't think she was ever a sailor though
  22. What would happen if the Stock Exchange were to say that King could become a Director or Chairman? Does the SFA have the authority to over rule this? Or does it fall into the grey area between footballing authorities and national organisations? Also could be become a Director of the holding company while not actually being a director of the club itself?
  23. House prices in Perth are fecking ridiculous!!
  24. thats the point... an in joke on an open forum like twitter, when others wouldn't know this and take it seriously, could be construed as libellous. it was just rank stupidity by a couple of our talented knuckleheads
  25. Another case of the big clubs running the show. Uefa want / need to keep the big leagues and clubs happy so seeding avoids any upsets. Suits them, the clubs and sponsors. They don't do it then the idea of a a breakaway league for the top teams would raise it's head again. Where would the sponsors go?? They would follow the big clubs and UEFA would be struggling in time. A
