Anyone else suspect their short-list of no-hopers  (and psycho Davies) was deliberately engineered and floated for 3-4 weeks so the announcement of Avril would look like a not-so-bad option?  If Levein had been announced right after Cathro went they'd have been rioting and burning their season tickets.  Now they're thinking at least it's not Hartley or Pressley or the guy that got gubbed by Motherwell on Saturday.

Possibly, but I suspect it's more to do with the fact that their skint. They're a few months behind on the building works, and it'll be hitting them hard. I don't think it's unreasonable to expect them to have a below-par season whilst all their investment is going into developing the ground. I'd expect them to recover next season, but I think they'll just have to limp through this one. Levein is actually the right person to grind out results with a brutal style of football.

I see yon Jambos have drawn up a 'plan B' just incase the new stand isn't ready for November 5th.

I'm starting to wonder if they are using the same project management team & contractors as were used to build the tram network.

They have 13 games left in 2017 of which 10 are meant to be at home. Murrayfield is booked for 2 of them and they may have the option of using it for the November 5th but after that they may have to go crawling to Hibs, Livingston & Edinburgh City.
I'm a man, and as a man I crave disappointment.

That's why I support Aberdeen Football Club & Scotland.

I shall look forward to them shutting down the transport infrastructure of central Edinburgh for years before eventually installing a single seat in an already existing stand and leaving the rest to rust in a depot in Costorphine.

Hopefully the SRU will be able to use the cash to sign some decent players for the Autumn tests.

Hopefully rugby will die. A “sport” invented by a posh kid who couldn’t play fitba, a “sport” which developed into the maximum for physical contact, designed to satiate the confusions arising in pubescent boys stuck in an all male environment, “looked after” by “masters” and paedophiles. The formation of the scrum was the giveaway. Who other than a disturbed individual could come up with that?

Celtic.


I'm no rugby fan. But at the same time I've got nothing against it. I think cricket and netball are shite. But as a fan of other sports how can you not appreciate that other people may enjoy the tactical and physical element of rugby? Or the.. ball going in the net in netball? As a gentleman who must be in his mid 50s are you nae a bit old for hoping for anything you don't like to "die" when it has absolutely no effect on your day to day life?

Loved rugby at school, played for the school team at stand off if the football team weren't playing that day. The bit about paedophiles is just laughable and borderline libellous. In a world of snowflakery where elf n safety takes precedence over everything and football has become virtually a non contact sport, rugby is perhaps the one sport that is actually (at professional level) the one sport that has evolved into being even more physical than it was 20-30 years back.

Christ min don't take it literally and don't take me seriously. I don't.

I loved playing rugby at school too and was a stand off too. Did it in first and second year (as well as football) but when we had a choice when I was 13, I chose football instead of it.  What I didn't love was the manner in which we were given no choice about it though when we were about 14/15. Some dickhead teacher who had been a sub at Murrayfield or something - maybe he played for Scotland once, Iain/Ian Spence - came to our school and banned fitba, the first thing he did! Neale Cooper was at my school and the year below me but unlike the rest of us (who played football together outside school), I don't think he played rugby every Saturday morning whilst the rest of us did. Got some stories from the old rugby matches :)


The bit about paedophiles is just laughable and borderline libellous.

No, not libellous because it wasn't directed at anyone. You can't libel a "sport".

I thought you might have seen and understood the nuance. It was a rant against the public school system (that gave us egg-chasing) and spawned the old perverts who run the country, Ted Heath and Nigel Lawson and Cyril Smith all having been outed recently.

It's also a rant against the beardy weirdo cunts who are enthused by the game, their fucking antics at uni, the way they conducted themselves in the Kirkgate Bar, their preposterously pretentious sing-alongs, sticking their dicks into each others pints and finding that hilarious and the "atmosphere" they generate, all thinking that they're Erchie. It's tribalism for the posh and the farmers and something that cunts who were shit at football can do so as the boy says, it doesn't affect my life and they can crack on. But they're mostly wankers, as indeed he said about golf clubs and tennis being snooty, another generalism that hits the spot actually.


In a world of snowflakery where elf n safety takes precedence over everything and football has become virtually a non contact sport, rugby is perhaps the one sport that is actually (at professional level) the one sport that has evolved into being even more physical than it was 20-30 years back.

Yes it has become more physical and as a consequence we're seeing more stuff on the news about paralysed people etc. There was probably always unfortunate neck breaks and all that and yes, it could be the elf and safety culture thats putting more of the wheelchair rugby victims in the spotlight.

This is an interesting debate. Malcom Gladwell highlighted the head injuries and dementia etc. arising from American Football and even here, in fitba, there was some recent stuff about headers being damaging for your health. For me, you know what you're signing up for when playing any sport. A squash ball could make you go blind in one eye. You can die going for a jog - although most joggers dying might make the world a less boring place may be an argument there - so there will always be risks in anything. I'm all for letting people know the risks and sharing the data. I just don't like rugby and the people who celebrate it. Sir Clive Woodward? Billy Beaumont? Every other guffy rugger bugger? The Hastings brothers? Just wankers, the lot of them.

Aye JK is a fucking hoot tonight, everyone demanding Levein essentially sacks himself. Did any of you see their new Japanese loan signing? Fuck me, he looks about 14. Celtic Boys Club coaches will be queuing up......

However at least they c@nts don't hide after a shitty result. Went for a gloat on Hivs.net and as per usual they've fired it onto lockdown.

There was certainly protests after the game wanting Levein and the Board sacked. I don't think the HIVs are any better either, they are getting very vitriolic towards Heckinbottom by all accounts, next weeks Edinburgh derby could be interesting.

Already being branded the P45 derby.
