  1. My Uncle Jimmy in the top right pic there.
  2. Genuinely what I expected our penalties to do. I would never have expected a professional side's approach to a game to be AAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRHHHHHHHHHHHHH KICK IT!!!! Turns out I was wrong.
  3. Clearly too smart for you to understand in that case. It wasn't about "looking cool with a smart comeback on an internet discussion forum", and it wasn't literally imagining your home life. It was taking the tone of your posting style and the type of scenario your posts address, and projecting it into a real life example in order to show how ridiculous they are when you put them in a relatable context. For example, you just admitted you had a "bit of a rant" at something that you had no idea whether it even happened or not. And the fact that people notice, whether you agree with their criticism of you being constructive or not, shows that it's not the only example. The way you respond to random suggestions of player signings by posters who could be 12 years old, or 76 years old, or new to the game, or just don't know too much about football, or play too much Football Manager, as if they are actually happening or have been suggested by the club, with the tone of "if these are the type of players Robinson is looking at then i've had it its P45 time!!!!" (I'm paraphrasing...) is very weird to read. I acknowledge that you are not one of the "Robinson is shite just cos!" band, and you do have your reasons for the things you are critical of, but the crux of the point I am making is that, more often than not...your reasons are things that either havent happened, won't likely be happening, or we have no idea if they happened. And you will more than likely disagree with that, and believe that you don't come across in that way or don't have that tone, but you don't get to decide how you come across....that can only be determined by the reader, you merely get to decide the intent. So when lots of people who have no link to each other pick up on it, maybe you need to look at your posts with fresh eyes and see how you actually come across, as opposed to how you intend to come across. There's your " actual constructive response".
  4. I don't remember a post you've made where you weren't angrily ranting at absolutely nothing at all, or things that havent/might never happened. I imagine you being at home like, "I just sat on the fucking couch! What if that couch hadn't been there! I'd have fell on the floor for fuck sake! But it's all fine though I'll just break my hip to go with the embarrassment of being the only house in the street without a couch."
  5. Staggered payment as in, "I'd be staggered if they could make a payment"?
  6. It's only £9.99 per month if you take the 6 month contract option. If you want to subscribe for one month only, it's £11.99
  7. But, the guy he was talking about not rating doesn't even play for us?
  8. Good luck in your mission to instil rational thinking in Old Firm fans. Surely no-one has tried that yet so let us know how you get on.
  9. Oh i'm fully aware that it's a fitness and shape exercise, but OF fans don't care about that and a week of "hilarious whatsapps" before the season has even started, isn't likely to get me buzzing for it.
  10. Yeah we're obviously limited in that respect, but I think I'd be doing everything I could to avoid creating a "ahh ffs" air amongst the fans if we're hoping to start the season well. Not saying for a second that we wouldn't lose in friendlies against anyone else, but I also don't have to suffer a week of laughing emojis, gifs and memes on my phone for a week after we lose to anyone else. I'd be going out of my way to create a feel-good factor...or at least avoid a feel-shite factor, just a bit counter-productive if we're hoping for a strong start I think, that's all.
  11. I can't for the life of me understand why we'd arrange these as our pre-season friendlies. I mean, yeah it's pre-season and all about fitness and the result doesn't matter, but surely thinking that getting your arse handed to you by the Old Firm under any circumstances, and the fallout we have to put up with as a result, will do anything other than send the fans into the season in a rotten mood, is massively naive?
  12. You are absolutely correct, I don't have the slightest idea what you're on about. Do you think a scout's attendance hasn't been arranged well in advance with procedures put in place, and that he's just rocking up to the gate spitting and coughing on people? That we've gone to all the expense and trouble to regulate every session that has happened since restrictions allowed, and documented it on camera for public viewing...only to allow any random scout to just walk in and undermine it all? It will be strictly regulated and arranged in exactly the same way as a referee turning up to officiate a game.
  13. Do you want to buy my car? Can I come and have a look at it? No.
  14. You've posted some nonsense in your time but this tops everything! They aren't going to watch the game, they are going to evaluate something that they want to buy! If you think that trying to sell something to someone for as much money as you can, but saying they can't come and have a look at it, is a good idea...then I hope you're not in charge of anything at your work.
  15. Up until just a few years ago I had always wondered why we had a steam ship on the badge.
  16. I love Richard Tait and i'm sad to see him go, but if that's his honest benchmark for what looking fit and playing well is, then perhaps the outcome is best for all concerned.
  17. Smallest in the league, 100m x 64m For reference, the biggest are Celtic Park, Easter Road, Ibrox, McDiarmid Park and whatever Hamilton's ground is called this week, all at 105m x 68m. Fir Park is third smallest at 100m x 68m
  18. Won one away against Raith as well, Goram in goal. I don't have a problem with a penalty being saved as for the most part, even a decent one is just a different guess away from being saved, but I've said for years that if you're a professional footballer and you can't stand 12 yards away from the side of a van, and hit it with a ball, that's a weeks wages.
  19. Never going to complain too much about any media article that talks about us in a positive way, but that writing is absolutely horrendous.
  20. You're entitled to up to 20% of the capacity if you want it.
  21. Otherwise known as the "Michael Jordan retires from the NBA as he really wants to play baseball for a year" tactic.
