  1. I think that's the biggest issue. Glasgow has now become out of bounds on Hogmanay this year, which is a real shame.
  2. That's exactly what we'll be doing. Head over to Trafalgar Square, and if it seems inappropriate to be there, leave and head to a pub. The Sports Cafe on Haymarket is only a couple of mins walk from there, so that will probably be our plan B.
  3. Three of us on exactly the same route as you going home. Looking forward to that 4.30am alarm call the day after the game
  4. Ross McLaren was a promising defender, but had to give up the game as a young lad when Dougie Imrie (then at Clyde) accidentally stamped on his neck whilst they were both going in for a tackle. It was horrible watching the game get abandoned and an ambulance sitting parked on the pitch pumping his chest. He survived, but had to retire straight away. A real shame as he looked pretty decent. I think he made a comeback a few years later in the juniors, but couldnt be sure.
  5. Glasgow-Paris-Malta on the Friday, same again on the way back on Monday. Have a six hour layover in Paris on the way out, so will head down to the Auld Alliance on the Friday afternoon for a few, if anyone's about.
  6. You can't pick your seats on the mobile version, and switching to desktop mode doesn't work. Presumably it's flash based, or something archaic like that. Stop offering me seats down the front behind the goals, why the feck would any sane individual want to sit there ????? At least let me choose front, middle or back, if a seat map is beyond them on a mobile phone. Giving the SFA £500 of my money shouldn't be so hard.
  7. 29 minute queue on the website now. Fecks sake
  8. Hi Watershed - please remove our three from the reserve list, we've manage to make other arrangements. Thanks
  9. Hi Paul - could we have three seats on the bus please ? Thanks Scott
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. 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).
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
