    2018/19 Game 29: Hamilton (H) March 9th 3pm kick-off

    The voice of sanity: they've a lot to play for. Short of giving our colts some valuable game time and us a slim chance of the top six, well, not very much for The Good Guys. Darian will be sharpening his studs...

    Thanks. At my age it's all a bit of a blur. Mind you, last week is a bit of a blur too

    Apologies, "it" not I. On reflection, maybe the contact lens excuse/reason may have been used after the 8-3 Aberdeen defeat, another one I've totally forgotten about.

    Yes, I can truthfully say, I didn't affect me, affect me, affect me, affect me...…………..

    I had to leave that game early because I had to get back to EK for a big party. The score was 3-2 but I heard a roar when I was going up the road a bit. When I got home my father (Accies' Man) was smirking and I didn't believe him when he told me the score. Wasn't the story that Burns had lost a contact lens or was that just a cover story? Notice the great Scottish press couldn't get its story straight re attendance in those days either.

    I only ask because Falkirk wore their "Blackburn" style strip that day. He was the most elegant player we had in the late 50s and early 60s and an internationalist. When I was a shaver, I always looked for him and Charlie Aitken to do something special when we were in trouble. By contrast, Andy Weir looked so old and lined after his terrible accident that I was quite scared of him as a wee boy. I met Willie (Billy to his family) quite recently in the John Lewis restaurant with his charming wife and he was still sharp as a tack. He works with a dementia group, visiting sufferers, and writes poetry for children. Top guy.

    The Motherwell Nijinsky: is this from the Falkirk game when we scored nine?

    Tait never takes a step back, does he? Great stuff, Richard

    Aldred will surely be playing. After all, the BBC Scotland website describes him as "hardman Tom Aldred".

    Bobby Moore, when he played for Fulham. He was politely asked if he had any jewellery on him .

    Thanks for that, although clearly Saint Brendan would never do such a thing . I may have misconstrued my Sellick-leaning relative's gesture towards the headline, in which case I retract my scandalous suggestion that Scottish Red Tops are full of crapola, obvs. It's a funny old game, Saint.

    I don't know. I didn't pick it up for fear of contagion, but my Celtic-supporting relative was pointing to it in a significant way. I'm hoping someone on here read it and will know. Perhaps an early edition Evening Times from the layout?

    That was a sizzler, and no mistake. You don't like to give the Ugly Sisters any chance to adopt the moral high ground for once but the media's and Celtic's reaction is quite ridiculous and our whitabootery is justified for once. James is young and his actions are probably the result of his inexperience and exuberance. On the other hand, Ryan Christie has considerable form in the Sneak Stakes and my respect for him has steadily diminished as his frequent simulating and tendency to leave the foot in have become more obvious. I noticed a tabloid lying on a café table today with the screaming sports headline "UNETHICAL". No wonder the circulation figures for the Dead Tree Scrolls are tanking when you see sanctimonious crapola like that. I didn't think my opinion of Brendan Rogers could get any lower after his shameless and manipulative comments on Ryan Bowman but I was wrong. The sooner he loups the dyke and goes back to the English Premiership the better.
  14. Having seen Turnbull's free kick again, he does shape it beautifully and it is spinning wickedly. Just before the kick is taken the keeper is squinting into the sun too, so perhaps it was not such a howler. He had a couple of great saves earlier but that's the lot of the goalie. I was frankly baffled by the comments from the two resident Couch Potatoes on the sending off. They should have listened to the post-match comments from Craig "Laughing Boy" Levein, who criticised the tackle. How strange the BBC chose not to air them.
