    It's generally OK, but can get a bit patchy when you're in a packed out area. Looks as if you've got full bars, but struggle to send anything requiring the Internet. WhatsApp can be a nightmare, but phone and old school texting usually fine

    Good detail!

    As it turned out, streaming the football was close to impossible. 

    Bikini Kill very good

  2. I ruled out going to that pretty early doors on grounds of cost... one nagging doubt I'm left with is missing the chance to watch JC - he is the greatest.  All the reviews seem to confirm everything else though - Corgan has made some of my very favourite music but is a real bore.  Sounds like Weezer have really shown him up on this tour, giving people what they actually want.

  3. It is a shame for that opening band but it sounds like they made a fist of it  and didn't let it  be a humiliation. Reality is someone puts up coin for a band to get their name associated with that bill and their profile alone wouldn't have them anywhere near. Hopefully they just enjoyed it.

  4. Southgate seems pretty well set on the grind through approach to tournament football. Low risk, don't show your attacking cards to any great extent for as long as possible. I think they'll be fine in the group, have too much for turkey in the last 16, and then fine margin time after that. Which they'll surely be on the wrong side of well before winning a final.

  5. Denmark's game against Slovenia shouldn't be as rowdy as Serbia's, which in my head means winning by the same margin but more controlled, lower scoring. That leaves them in a shootout for 2nd in the 3rd match. You'd love to see group stage pens but I reckon goals scored will take serbia through. Danes through in 3rd on 4 points.

  6. It took the Rovers a long time to adjust to the tempo County played at, the slick movement of the ball as well as the physical challenge, and not being behind after that was a real success.  It's fair to be disappointed with the goals but at the same time there was no injustice in the scoreline.  Finishing relatively strongly means we can still go up there with some positivity, even if it's not expectation, and that will help - but it's also going up there with a better idea what we're up against and what kind of approach is realistic.  

    It was close enough in the end to have a few What Ifs - Connolly goes very close at 0-0 and after a poor season and no away wins in so long, how do County react if it goes in?  The free kick Vaughan took was wasted too, seemed clearly better suited to Connolly.  Vaughan didn't find a way into the game really, didn't adjust to bigger, better faster opponents - but I still think he could do on Sunday.  May need to keep it simpler and be very patient, but he can still make a difference.  Certain that Connolly can too, if teammates are close enough to him.  

    County are obviously better than any of our league opponents this season and it would be smash and grab if we get something up there, but it's not impossible.

  7. If Murray is a serious candidate for Hibs then like RATM I think the playoffs are a bit of an audition. They need a fan-pleasing appointment so while A Hibs Man is a winner, a championship failure wouldn't be. 

    Like mckinnon I wouldn't grudge him taking it, but the unacceptable part with mckinnon was the strong impression that in between playoff legs his head was fully turned and he'd checked out mentally before Easter Road. 

    This time I think it's in our favour that he needs to progress in the playoffs to be the appointment Hibs are after.

    There's legitimate points in there about honesty and, in particular, transparency, but from my point of view, I'm not seeing a smoking gun. 

    The intrinsic link between gambling and football isn't the most palatable, but with the SPFL about to announce a record deal with William Hill, I don't think this is going to bring down the Barrowman administration. 

    Good summation.  I don't love it personally but it's far from the kind of 'problematic' that's in our recent past.
