      Board Downtime   09/27/2016

      We apologise to anyone inconvenienced by the downtime experienced last night - especially to anyone who thought they had been thrown off the board due to threatening legal action. The outage was due to our server providers replacing a faulty component.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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?

  8. Moved down to the 'Shire in 2005 and lived in Bolton whilst studying for a PhD at Uni. I then got married and moved to a wee place called Cheadle Hulme but since then i have been divorced and I am now in a wee village called Gatley (on the way to Manchester Airport) and love the place, I do get homesick but Glasgow is only 3 and and half hours up the road in the car and I am engaged to an amazing lass!!
  9. Like wise finish at four over here in Ellesmere Port then it's the M56 back to Stockport, throw on my Scotland top and settle down to watch the game. Nrevous but optimistic 2-0 to us!!

  11. Panic over, I phoned them up and they let me change it.....................back to being Scottish again!!
