    Just back..and Hecks wheel keeps on turning...

    Having watched the game from happy Helensburgh, I think Celtic probably had the slightly higher number of great chances. That having been said, and as others have pointed out, it was an amusingly good game considering nobody actually scored (given that the ball should have hit the net several...

    Rod and the SFA

    If Petrie becomes anything like in control of the SFA, then it strengthens my football departure from two years ago.

    Realistic finishing place?

    Honestly? I think it's a fundamentally bizarre season, statistically. We haven't been consistent at all, from what I can tell, more of a team that goes on runs (both good and bad) and that's about it. We're now on a good one, and are likely to have a bad one before the season ends. Given...

    The opinion differences are interesting, just because a lot of them have reasonable commentary that you can't dismiss even if you disagree with the conclusion. For example, I still think Hanlon is a good player but needs to completely clear his injury (which we don't know if he has), AND play in...

    Fans reps

    They could, but even blog-related content sees a relatively small amount of interaction with people. It's about variety, and that would include an amount of work beyond two people to realistically cover.

    Fans reps

    Aye, that's a big issue. What's actually been going on when a lot of the things that they do isn't well communicated outside a couple of small groups that supporters aren't heavily involved in? It's worth noting that a lot of this issue isn't actually caused by the representatives; it's caused...

    Fans reps

    It's funny. I like both individuals when talking about the club representatives, but the reality is that the system is something I just don't support. I wanted to, and even tried to, but the reality is that (when push comes to shove) elected supporters have no real influence and are expected to...

    January break - yea or nay?

    @aggie sums it up.

    Just Back........deary me

    This is pretty much where I sit. The midfield we had last year was exceptional, because it had that bit of everything. It had fight, it had technical ability, it had coordination, it had incision. Sadly, the loss of McGinn, McGeouch and Allan dropped the standard by an amount that we haven't...

    Hibernian v Livingston

    A point is better than a defeat, but a win would have put us up to fifth ahead of both Livingston and Hearts; now we need to beat that lot on Wednesday, just to remind everyone who the better side is.

    Serious question

    Looking at it, I think the problem isn't as bad as all that. Only Celtic and 'Rangers' (first and second, assuming they take points from their two games in hand) have scored more than us this season, despite the fundamentally poor run that we're currently on. We're on an average of 1.6 a game...

    Full Time: Kilmarnock 3 vs 0 Hibs

    Overall, it's starting to look like a season where our 'goal' is hitting the top-six. Anything less than that is a significant failure.

    Time to close the bounce down?

    Aye, that's pretty much true. The reality is that 'conversations' are notoriously difficult to have via social media - they weren't designed for that.

    Time to close the bounce down?

    I've explained why I contribute much less, but... The reality is that forums, in general, are losing much of their impact as time moves on. As more and more move themselves to the social media that a great many of us dislike, they're not saying they hate forums; they're simply (and possibly...
