Best Takeaway In Inverclyde?

19 April 2017 - 02:36 PM

The Tele are running a poll on this at the minute. What's the best takeaway in and around the Inverclyde area?

Obviously depends on what you're after but I'd go with Saba. China Garden is still probably the best Chinese, Luigis is probably still the best chippy.

Am I wrong?

Morton Vs Ayr

17 April 2017 - 06:05 PM

We really, really need to get back to winning ways. There are zero excuses for not beating the worst team in the league at home, zero. They had a decent point on Saturday, but are still bottom of the league and heading down.

Gaston
Doyle Kilday O'Ware Russell
Forbes Murdoch Lindsay Nesbitt
Tidser or Scullion
Oliver

I'd be fine with Lamie or Russell, neither have covered themselves in glory recently, but Russell & Nesbitt did link up well at one point in the season. By all accounts, Scullion did well on Saturday and was our most threatening player, I'd be fine with him starting especially as Ayr at home was his last positive contribution to the first team. If Tidser starts then fine. As long as he's played central and not on the left flank.

No Donnelly, no Shankland, no Kudus, please.

Three points here and we still have a chance of second.

Who Would You Rather Relegate?

04 April 2017 - 08:54 PM

We're firmly in the business end of the season now and our chances in the playoffs will become clearer in the next week or two. We will be in them though, and one of the teams listed below will be the Premiership team we'd face if we managed to get to the final. The question is, who would you rather relegate? We'd need to put someone out of their misery, and I'm intrigued to see if there's anyone in particular folk would be delighted to send down, as well as who everyone would like to avoid.

The candidates are -

Inverness - Nothing against them as a club, their fans seem alright, the journey back if we lost to them would be s***e.

Hamilton Accies - No fans, a board with no ambition and one no one would notice was gone if they went down. We'd also get a measure of revenge for MorTEN.

Dundee - Speaking of MorTEN. Going by Pie & Bovril, they have a particularly fragile fanbase and it would be absolutely terrific to send them and jakey reject Paul Hartley down. They would be my choice.

Motherwell - Don't mind them, but again, their fans get very upset. (See them fighting amongst themselves as we bodied them out the cup.) They have match-winners in McDonald & Moult as well as playoff final experience. Avoid.

Kilmarnock - They have overstayed their top flight welcome, I would be reasonably confident about beating them despite their demolition of Falkirk last year.

Ross County - The biggest underachievers in the league in relation to wage budget. Sending Uncle Jim's Staggies down would be fun, but they once again have match-winners and it's a trek.

Dundee, send them on.

Morton Vs Hibs Iv: This Time, It's Personal.

04 April 2017 - 12:47 PM

Well then, this should be interesting. I'd take a point if offered, but given our last two results we could really be doing with three.

Gaston

Doyle Kilday O'Ware Russell

Forbes Murdoch Lindsay Nesbitt

Tidser

Oliver

I wouldn't be averse to Nesbitt through the middle as well, but Tidser did very well at Easter Road.

A point and a complete and utter hounding of Neil Lennon would do me.

The Great Collapse Of 03/04

17 March 2017 - 01:39 PM

There's a decent Pie & Bovril thread going at the minute (http://www.pieandbov...llapse-of-0304/) with good posts in particular from Toby & Dunning about the great collapse of 03/04. There's also a piece in the new Nutmeg which I've not got round to reading yet but am told is worth seeking out.

Are there people on here still convinced there was a scandal, or were we just a bit pish and ran out of luck as Toby & Dunning suggest?
