  1. Was Gemma Fay, ex Scotland Women's Team Keeper, a professional?
  2. Jimmy Blyth, fine goalkeeper, Perth born, who went on to play for Coventry, Birmingham City and others. Latterly at Celtic and Boro as keeper coach.
  3. Could it be that this virus, or something sinister, was released into the atmosphere by the Chinese, either by accident or deliberately. Did the USA have a part to play in this by selling something a bit naughty to China.
  4. Hibs will be without Whittaker who saw red today. Good chance of taking something away from Easter Road next Saturday.
  5. Especially as Killie and Hibs lose. Well done Accies winning with 10 men Table looking much better now.
  6. Moved to Iceland after a few years drifting around and has scored for fun there, averaging 1 goal in 2 games over a 5 year period. Should do well in our league then. His team FH have qualified for next seasons Europa League. He was 2nd top scorer in their league this season with 13 goals just behind another exiled Anglo.
  7. In the open air, as in attending outdoor sporting events, there is considerably less chance, irrespective of crowd size, of contracting anything, when compared to being in a room together. According to the Deputty Head of Public Health England. Safe, as you're not snogging someone in the crowd.
  8. Tough gig playing football for a living. 180 minutes, plus a few hours daily training, doesn't sound all that taxing for your working week. Poor lambs. Yeah, as you say, nice wee point

    Wage Bill

    Ross Sinclair off to Kelty Hearts so one more off to pastures new.........3 month loan.
  10. Positively tropical old boy. Bet the guys up Alice, Byron and Kent have their Parkas and double thermals on!
  11. According to the BBC we had 77% of the play but I think they have that wrong as in the first half it was they said 38 - 62 at one point! BBC at their best!
  12. My mate, used to support Raith Rovers, and has jumped on the Kelty bandwagon, tells me the standard is excellent and Easton is a very good footballer.
  13. Apparently a bit of a screamer as well.
  14. George Hunter scores for Bonnyrigg Rose but they are edged out by Kelty Hearts.
  15. On the bench today. Was this tactical?

    Wage Bill

    St Johnstone have "over-egged" their spending on players and are unable to sustain what is a top-six wage bill, admits chairman Steve Brown. The Scottish Premiership club have been criticised for giving Old Firm fans three stands at McDiarmid Park. However, Brown says heavy losses have forced the hand of the Perth outfit. "We're in danger of being hypocrites because we have been outspoken in living within your means," he told BBC Scotland before the draw with Rangers. "This year we're not going to do that, which is disappointing to say the least. I think our wage bill is the sixth in the league, which is far too high. We can't sustain that. "We went for it at the start of the season - we thought we could get into the top six and have a cup run but we just haven't performed and that leaves a huge financial gap and concerns. "We have got reserves, so unfortunately this year we will be hitting them in a big way and posting heavy losses, which is not good." St Johnstone's form has picked up in recent weeks, having lost just once in their last seven league games to move them clear of relegation trouble and to within five points of the top six with a game in hand. In January, manager Tommy Wright was outspoken about a lack of signings and had to quell claims of a "divide" between himself, Brown and new head of football operations Kirsten Robertson. "I still get on with Tommy. Tommy's Tommy," Brown said. "He just gets frustrated. I spoke to him on the Sunday and he was a completely different guy. "Kirsten got a bit of stick, which was a bit unfair. Her remit was to reduce the wage bill so she is just doing her job. "The manager wants more and more players in but he is not all that concerned about getting players out. That's just football at the end of the day."

    Wage Bill

    Headline BBC Football news. Chairman Steve Brown says club 'can't sustain' wage bill Apparently Kirsten has been brought in to slash the wage bill and, despite cash reserves, we are heading for a big loss.
  19. Tony Watt gets on the scoresheet and misses a pen in the shootout. Out go his new team!
  20. A gem we let go! Scored for fun at The Posh now progressing in his football scholarship. How we could do with him now.
  21. Critically ill and in intensive care in Hull after collapsing. I am sure that we will ALL wish him well for a full recovery.
  22. Gordon on bench! Surely, with concussion rules he should not be able to play?
