  1. Lads, The Stockport Tartan Army have semi-regular meet ups and it's always nice to talk Scottish football and have a few pints with like minded individuals.
  2. My other half and I have bought a house in Newall Green.Sharon is a born and bred Manc, me I am a Glaswegian who has lived in Bolton, Stockport and Ashton-Under-Lyne. I am getting the train on Thursday morning from Piccadilly to Euston and meeting up with 1ANDYP et. al. in the afternoon. The Mancs are on the whole a nice bunch of folk, I have never had any hassle for wearing my kilt down here.
  3. I get to London next Thursday and plan to go to North Gower Street where they film Sherlock for a look, and then off to Paddington Station to see the statue of Paddington (sad but true!!) and I meeting up with my mates (who will have been in the pub all afternoon and well on their way.) Ah the joys!!!
  4. Any spare tickets going......I am I the same boat as many others in that my Facebook visits are few and far between, seems a shame as it is literally around the corner from where I am staying and seems like it will be a great night. Can anyone with a spare PM me There's a pint or two in it for you!!!!
  5. Haha Brilliant, that made me nearly choke on my coffee when I read it............................Superb!!
  6. If only, I am in The Strand Continental.
  7. Right around the corner from where I am staying...............Oh dear it could get messy!!
  8. Haha, not quite. My Mum is Australian and my old Boy is Scottish (I have always though it must have been a hell of a culture shock for my old dear leaving Melbourne to come and live in Baillieston in Glasgow but hey ho!!), he told me to never Boo anyone's anthem (and he did put the proviso) EVEN that one from down South. I am no lover of GSTQ (and all the anti Scottish nonsense about Marshall wade crushing rebellious Scots)and I respect anyone's right to Boo, Hiss or whatever but I will stand in a drunken silence when The English sing it. I will however give Flower of Scotland laldy as I aways do.
  9. I am booked on the 9.30 from Manchester Piccadilly to Euston on the 10th gets me in around lunchtime, then it's a trip to Euston Square to see where they film Sherlock (I know sad!! ) and my othe rhalf want's a photo of The Paddington Bear Statue, then it's time for a beer or six in the evening!!! Back on the Saturday at 12 noon into Manchester for around 3pm.
  10. This.....................I was brought up never to boo anyone's national anthem even if I don't like it (like GSTQ). I will stand in silence.
  11. Watching the game at home with a few single malts (I can never watch the games sober!! ) whilst my other half is watching Poldark/Victoria/other assorted rubbish on the other TV in the Kitchen.
  12. I have booked up on The 09:40 from Manchester Piccadilly to London Euston on the 10th of November. Are any other troops on this train?
  13. Strand Continental..............Cannae wait!!
  14. I am in The Strand Continental, 5 minutes stagger from Trafalgar Square and near lots of pubs and eating places. They have rooms and Dorms and when I booked it was £20 for a bed for the night in the dorms or £60 a night for a room
