  1. Hi Folks, We played at Drummond's on Friday and, when we loaded into the venue in Glasgow on Sunday, it became apparent that my cymbal bag had disappeared. Unfortunately nobody in the band can be certain that they were with our equipment as we loaded out from Drummond's on Saturday afternoon. They are definitely not anywhere in the venue. The police have been called, and hopefully CCTV scrutiny will yield something. If anybody encounters a STAGG cymbal bag with any/all of the following contents, please get in touch with me: *14" Sabian AAX Hi hats *18" Sabian AAX Crash Cymbal *20" Sabian AAX Ride Cymbal *Black LP Tambourine (which was a present and has a lot of sentimental - and monetary - value *Meinl stick bag with assorted gubbins Thanks
  2. I was in there on opening day on Saturday and it's great. Jamie and Willie were working and seemed genuinely touched by the amount of people dropping in to say hi and wish them good luck. The guitar selection is already first rate.
  3. Jon from Curators in Los Cardos burrito joint on Leith Walk in Embra last night...does he still use this site?
  4. I've got some free 2-week trials for Drag The Bar if anybody wants one. You can see coaching videos from Leatherass, Jeremy Menard, BeachJustice, GiantBuddha, Jared Tendler and many more top names in the online poker world. Plus me. O, and there are some coaching videos for you live poker players too. PM me if you want one.
  5. Another season, another year of referees being intimidated into favouring the Old Firm. Yawn.
  6. Just when I thought it was impossible for Joey Barton to come over as an even bigger bell-end, he tweets this Sitting eating sushi in the city, incredibly chilled out reading Nietzsche. #stereotypicalfootballer Fud.
  7. Simple as this: last season we were absolutely terrible and could well have been relegated. We needed people to be step up and Hartley's presence in the midfield stopped us being run over in certain important games. He was our third most important player last season, behind Bebo and Vernon. If you don't see how important Hartley was, just look at how we performed without him. Besides a pumping of Killie (which was great!) we sorely missed his influence. His red card for retalitation was bad. No excuses. I'm not saying that he was without fault, but Jesus, there were tons more responsible for our struggles than Hartley. He was a good signing, all things considered.
  8. I do. And all my students do.
  9. Some serious revisionism regarding Hartley going on. How quickly some of our fans turn on their own! The team nosedived when he got injured...the likes of Langfield, Diamond and Considine showed that they couldn't be relied upon, and yet we turn on the one leader who showed some spirit? Yes he was clearly struggling with injury from January onwards, but there are many more culpable for our woes last term. Diamond was our highest earner, and contributed about 1/10th of what PH did. The Craig Hignett as our highest ever earner on 6700 has been quoted in numerous articles over the years. I find it hard to believe that we were paying 8k p/w in 1995. Obviously I might be wrong, but the common consensus is that Hignett was the biggest ever earner.
  10. Without Hartley's goals and influence last season I think we would have gone down. As soon as he got injured we absolutely nosedived. Bernard was a good signing (and tlak of him being on 8k is lol....Craig Hignett is our all-time highest earner at 6700 p/w) but had huge injury problems. No doubting his abilities as a player.
  11. Naismith grabbed the referee's shoulder at the McCulloch booking incident, and was lucky that the ref just shook him off and gave him a look
  12. Whittaker did the same thing (albeit he booted it rather than threw it) at Chris Maguire last season. The referee did nothing, despite it occurring right under his nose. Bottom line: it was not a moment of madness; Whittaker did it because no Scottish ref would punish him for it. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing them penalised for some absurd challenges last night. They behaved no worse than they do every week domestically, but this time they got two red cards and five (?) cautions. And the ref certainly was lenient towards McCulloch, MacGregor and Naismith; it was two reds going on five.
  13. Yes I thought McGregor and Naismith, particularly, should also have walked.
  14. So so so good to see a referee who doesn't put up with their beelin and cheating. Bunch of fucking bairns. Fuck the Huns! Mon e Malmo!
  15. One-nil to the Bosche. Hilarious seeing them trying to bully a referee and getting nowhere, for once.
  16. I have signed to Drag the Bar as their new Sit n Go coach; for the next while I will be making videos for them. Also, my article on 6-max bubble play will be the lead piece in next month's Poker Player Magazine's Strategy section. Caught some rungood!

  17. I was following Barton's Twitter yesterday and thought he was trying to talk himself into trouble. Comes across as a typical egotist who isn't nearly as smart as he thinks he is. Fud of the highest order. He'll be playing for Rangers within three years. Had the 'Jeffries or McMoist - who will be sacked first?' convo with Shaki and Adam EW last week. I thought JJ would go, but McMoist won't last until May 2012
