    I like Leonard Cohen but you could probably argue it's more lyrical greatness as opposed to musical.

    If we're talking influence on music can't look much further than Bob Dylan, another guy who seemed to write songs for every man and their dug, shame he couldn't sing a note himself.

    It's a matter of taste but the vocalisation - can't really call it singing - on Blonde on Blonde is wonderful.

    Alright, fannybaws. Lets choose Queen.

    • Greatest hits spent 1405 weeks in the chart, a record
    • Had the first single to reach no. 1 twice (Bohemian Rhapsody in 1975 and 1991)
    • First rock band in the songwriters hall of fame
    • First music video banned by MTV (I want to break free)
    • Most streamed 20th century song
    • Bo Rap got over a billion views on YouTube
    • Oscar winning movie biopic
    • Long running musical show using their music



    I'll give you Killer Queen. Wonderful record ! Otherwise the pop/rock group for people who don't like pop or rock music.

    Alright, let's not panic too much about Ze Germans yet. They've had two good friendly results, but let's look at the broader picture here. Maybe they'll be contenders by June, or maybe they're going to make a c**t of this tournament too - the latter still seems more likely. Claiming they're going to batter everyone in the group is a huge overreaction.


    They're not going to 'batter everyone in the group ' , just Scotland.

    Just a guy that rattles around Midlothian, a county with zero connection to the filthy rancid football club you support, whilst stating how much you despise the people there who support a more local club who have had supporters from the area for over a century? What did you expect when you moved there likes? For everyone to be dead impressed that some utter fud from the Gorbels moved there and likes to scuttle around the streets in an unwashed mhank top? Away and give yer heid a wobble you bigoted mhanky spunk-trumpet. Celtic are fucking vermin, just like their blue cousins. :) 

    FFS.....you can't be a half-witted glory hunting bigot these days without some woke snowflake getting on your case !

    We just have to keep on winning whether it’s ugly or not and be great to beat the diets,I stay in Dalkeith in Midlothian so I’ll be leaving in a bus to go to Celtic park and I’d imagine they’ll more or less sell their allocation despise them nearly as much as the cream buns,I’ll take 1-0 as long as we win 🍀

    Don't tell me ....."ma da and his da and his da .......the Lisbon Lions were all born within 50 miles. of Dalkieth......it's no a wee green swastika.."

    No. Overrated. 

    How they got this myth that they somehow transformed music and everything that came after is because of them is a mystery. Good PR in the 60s is what they had, plus some fairly good songs. 

    I may be deluded and overwhelmed by myth but If anything The Beatles are underrated. But it is all subjective .

    I like Hampden, and I like going there to see Aberdeen and Scotland. Interesting on Saturday though getting our food pre match. Turnstiles opened at 11.00 and we were in about 11.30. Up to a not busy counter and asked for a hot dog, Hampden pies are shite, and a bovril. I could see the puzzlement on the girl's face. I said "bovril" three times and she eventually went away and came back with a wee Glaswegian lassie who showed her what a bovril was. Then she wandered about with the cup for about 30 seconds and came back to me. "No hot water. Will be 5 minutes." My friend was at the other end of the counter and when he asked a different person for his bovril she came back with a bottle of water. Obviously not a single second's training, and no hot water 30 minutes after gates open. Then the bloody screens went off after 10 minutes of the game for the remainder of the first half, so no idea how long had gone or was left. Not great. Apart from the game, which was magnificent. 

    Had the game taken place at Tannadice as the properly neutral requirement of not giving unfair advantage to Glaswegians would demand this Bovril atrocity would not have taken place.......and Aberdeen would be in the final.

    Do some of you think there's a moral high ground that can be achieved by not watching English football? Where are the lines in the sand?

    I won't watch Celtic or Rangers.

    Why stop at football for good old Scottish isolationism. Beatles you say ? Typical Mersey Beat fanboy. I spent Saturday night listening to Wet Wet Wet & Hue & Cry and I know which I preferred !!!

    I used to be almost as interested in English football as Scottish football. Everton were my English team an I've been down to Goodison countless times. But that was many moons ago. To me personally, the English Premier League is no longer football as I recognise it, a totally different sport which doesn't interest me in the slightest. I know loads of folk disagree with me. It saddens me to see the number of top English Premier League shirts on our kids.

    Very few Scots would now recognise a sport that's exciting, technically excellent and which hasn't been totally dominated for nearly 40 years by two secterian hatebuckets who've an obsession with the island of Ireland. Totally alien. Utterly unfathomable. How do they tolerate such a thing ?

    Ah yes because of course football in the 80s was otherwise renowned for it's santatised and and tranquil behaviour. Plus who wtf 'aspires' to be a fan of any club, you just choose as a kid or get told there's no entrance exams as far Im aware.

    Ah the old 'I only support a bigoted club cos of ma da'' argument. if you can't aspire to either support a club for positive reasons or not support a club for negative reasons and are tied into what you decided when you were ten or  what your parent decided for you, you're essentially admitting an inability to think for yourself. Weird thing to admit to

    A repeat of the 1980 SC final?

    Get Archie to write a script for the TV pundits. Think he might need to tone down the language as I’m not sure the modern day equivalent could pronounce some of these words.

    “This is like a scene out of Apocalypse Now…we’ve got the equivalent of Passchendaele and that says nothing for Scottish football. At the end of the day, let’s not kid ourselves. These supporters hate each other.”


    That footage should be required viewing for all who think supporting Celtic & Rangers is something that civilised human beings should aspire to.

    I don’t disagree with the overall sentiment here but the bbc and plenty of media outlets have shown that if they want people to give more of a f**k about something then they will do it. There’s a chicken and egg situation here with what influences what people are interested in. 

    Id suggest that the level of interest shown in womens football going back 5-10 years wouldn’t have justified the level of coverage it has received in recent times and yet (and I say this as a supporter of this effort) they have made a decision that womens football is criminally under represented beyond a niche interest and it needed addressed.

    Thats not to say that Scottish football should be front and centre but they clearly feel that its place in the uk psyche is a regional backwater and that suits them. Theres plenty of levers they could pull to increase it, whether it was an incremental increase in coverage at a uk level or more funding to regional outlets.

    But they absolutely perpetuate the ‘no one gives a f**k about Scottish football’ opinion. 

    No one is 'perpetuating' that 'opinion.' In England it is a fact, as any time spent living down there will confirm.

    Aye let's play a match that would be a sell out of circa 52,000 in a stadium that holds about 15k. 

    Totally sensible and well thought out idea....🤦‍♂️

    Scotland must genuinely be the only country in the football world that has scores of people who actively want to stop people attending matches, having thousands of empty seats at matches to satisfy keyboard warriors who don't want visiting fans in them is one thing but this fucking crackpot suggestion is the daddy of insecure pettiness........fucking hell 🤦‍♂️🤣


    Can you imagine Liverpool v Arsenal in the FA cup final being played at Molinuex in front of 40k instead of 95k at Wembley because Arsenal are from London where the national stadium is?    Obviously that wouldn't happen because the English aren't as fucking embarrassing as some people up here, they have their faults and their football is a bit money orientated and tourist league but they would rightly cringe at some of the pish like this. 

    English football would be well served by playing their cup semi-finals away from Wembley and London. Might bring back the 'magic' of the FA Cup Final.They have the facilities to do it. But back to Scotland . We, unlike England, are cursed with the cancerous presence of two vile secterian clubs. I have no interest in facilitating the slavering bigots who support the Old Firm to spread their bile at football matches. You clearly do. There we differ. I also want genuine neutrality for Cup semi-finals rather than always Glesga, Glesga, Glesga. You don't. You, as an Old Firm fan do not, in a football sense, understand the meaning of neutrality. You probably don't even think it's a good or desirable thing.

    Pretty much like we get every time at Pittodrie. 


    No matter what kick off time Aberdeen get in semi finals the whinging b*****ds complain about it, you had a 5.00 kick off on a Sunday at Hampden against the **** about five years ago and the fans were complaining it was unfair on people with kids who had school in the morning and might not get home till 10 or 11 o'clock.  🤦‍♂️😂😂

    It's not a league game it's a supposedly 'neutral' national cup final. The real scandal is why it's played in Glasgow at all. A totally full Tannadice would be both fairer geographically and more atmospheric than a three quarter full Hampden.....and making Hampden exclusively the venue for the final only adds to the day.

    So there is no 7th ? Well you are wrong. There is a 7th and it's beautiful and tender and precious. You, on the other hand are none of these things. You lack the imagination, wit and command of language to call other people thick. You rude little character.

    Why not just let them have a decider on the last day.? They can't help themselves with the bigoted shite, so pre-warn them that any carry on will result in them being jettisoned from the league. Let them batter fk out each other, with the police and army on standby with water cannons and rubber bullets to sort it all out, then perma-ban the loathsome cnuts when it's all over.

    An unsavoury, yet guaranteed way to get the result the rest of us all want. A man can but dream...

    Why not just draw lots in August to see which one of them wins another fatuous title.
