    He goes to Alistair every home game and is one of the leading members of the Former Players Club. Great guy.
  2. Makes a nice change from people spelling Livingstone wrong, though!

    It then goes to a tribunal and both clubs have to abide by what it decides compensation should be. That amount also has to be paid in one go and with a set time limit, not in instalments.

    If we go down the Development Fee route, we will be paid now (hopefully!) for the years we’ve had him, so wouldn’t be due any more compensation in the future.

    I think the FIFA guidelines only apply to situations where the player is signing for a club in a different association. Where he moves to a club in the same association, that association’s rules apply - so in our case the SFA’s. The amounts due for each year the player has been with a club beyond the age of 11 on the SFA’s scale are lower than those on the FIFA scale - no surprise there, eh?

    SPFL Reserve League Cup final

    Half of our starting outfield players were 17-year -olds who only turned full-time last summer (one of them only a couple of months ago) and haven’t even played a lot of Reserves games,. They have great ability and potential, but the fact that Hearts were more experienced at First Team level, more physically strong, more cynical and more streetwise right through their side than those five made a massive difference. Those boys will do great in time but it would be unfair to them and the rest of the team to judge them under those circumstances.

  11. Incidentally, our boys on Pie n Bovril are playing a blinder in the face of the inevitable green and white assault. Superb stuff.

    Who Stays And Who Goes?

    I try not get involved in this sort of thing, but have to put you right on this. I don’t know whose told you this, or why they’re saying it, but it’s a downright lie. It’s all the more galling because the opposite is true - he’s actually one of the first, and often the first, one in, arriving early to do extra gym work to build himself up as much as he can. And he’s actually been commended on his attitude, so every aspect of what you’ve been told is as far from the truth as you can get. As I say, I try not to say things on this forum in case it is seen by the club as talking out of turn, but I’m not giving away any private behind-the-scenes info here, just setting the record straight. If I were you I’d be asking the person who told you these allegations what their agenda is against him in coming out with outright lies and slurs.

    The Small-Medium Rebuild 2018'19

    No, we’ve trained there several times since then, including recently. Probably just no let was available at Ravenscraig today.

    Ahem. We’ve got a proper left back who’s that age.

    The Case of the Missing Physio

    She’s not the first team physio - Davie Henderson is. Aileen is the reserve team physio.
