    Hi Watershed - could you add three of us to the waiting list please for your bus to the game ? Fingers crossed space opens up. Thanks
  4. The Right Back Problem

    Ziggy Gordon is a fine young right back, great prospect. Good in defence, excellent at bombing forward down the line. Rumours are that Poland want to cap him (he has a Polish mother), but because he plays for little old Hamilton Accies, he's not even mentioned.
  5. Darian MacKinnon came from the juniors (Clydebank) to Accies 2-3 years ago and is now playing Premier League football. Good player, permanent member of the first team, but every now and again he does a tackle straight of the juniors and cops a red card for it. He's currently suspended (again).
  6. Frankfurt Stagger

    Lovely stadium in Frankfurt, but as others have said, its more of a financial city. Nice old town square and all that, but I must admit, if I was going to Germany for a stag night I wouldn't see past the Alstaadt area in Dusseldorf. Only been once and loved it, would go back tomorrow, if felt like there were hundreds of pubs all packed right next to each other.
  7. Making 22.30 Train After Game

    2.9 mile walk from Hampden to Queen Street. I would say about 40-45 mins, assuming average walking speed of 4mph. I would do that rather than get the Mount Florida train. There are big unknowns there with the length of queue and frequency of service (they dont do football specials any more), plus you would have to get from Central to Queen St as well. I've walked to Rutherglen station as well, its more like a half hour walk. But you would still have to wait on/get a train back to Central and then walk to Queen St. Seems a round about road for a short cut. Get out the stadium pronto and walk to Queen St would be my bet.
  8. The View From Ireland

    I would much rather have our fixtures than Ireland's. Looking at how Germany have stepped up the pace as the campaign has gone on, and the fact they still need one more result to qualify, I would suggest Ireland have no chance of beating them. That being the case, I would rather be in our position (having to beat Poland at home) than Ireland's (having to go and win in Warsaw). I'm quietly confident we'll still get a play-off.
  9. Play Off - What We Need

    We won in Warsaw last year in the friendly, and then drew there in the competitive game. They looked like a very average team with a superstar up front (a bit like Wales). I think they are very beatable.
  10. Stevie May scoring 30 goals the season he was on loan at Accies. He was absolutely superb.
  11. That was very poor. I got 3/1 on them scoring 3 or more goals. Still lost the best, mind you.
  12. Peterhead Fans

    Douglas Park (the guy) used to stay just along the road from Douglas Park (the stadium).
  13. Looking forward to watching this, pity its on Alba rather than BT or Sky. Surely one of the most attractive games of the season in the Championship.
  14. Moscow

    I spent time in Moscow and on the Transsiberian Express a couple of years ago, and could figure out enough of the written language to get by with the help of a guide book. Spoke to a lot of people in Moscow who spoke English, younger people are way more likely to speak English in my experience.
  15. Allan Mcgregor

    Agree about Gordon & Marshall being streets ahead and there's not much between them. I do prefer to see Gordon in goals though for sentimental reasons, after everything that he's done for us in the past.
