      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. The quote system is fukked on here. Re: Sterling's posture - noticed that also! Looks like a 5 year old lassie at a beauty pageant with the puffed-oot belly. Some acceleration though! We'll need to watch him carefully at the England game. He was City's best player tonight. Not sure if Tierney is up to it - hardly got near him all night. All the Scottish guys did well. Gordon's save at the end was superb and that's the Scott Brown we'd all want in the Scotland team.
  2. Also considered a Celtic win tonight. Tierney is some prospect. Impressed me every time I've watched him although never watched the Barcelona game. His passing and shooting is fantastic. Needs to go in hard but fair on Sterling though, let him know he's there tonight and hopefully Sterling will remember him come November. BT Sports commentators were a bit pro-City/England earlier on and almost made me pine for Chris Sutton, but they've come good... Hopefully more of the same in the 2nd half.
  3. Aberdeen 'keeper won the game. Thank phuk! Couldn't sit through another 30 minutes of that. Rangers v Morton coming up.
  4. Agree. A class above anything else at Aberdeen, apart from Ryan Jack. This game has been dire though. Should have backed the draw like every man and their dog.
  5. Bet365 In Play offer starting again... But not really worth a phuk . Down to €10 from €25. Free money's free money right enough.
  6. Yes. It's depicting people hanging themselves, not the team which it was supposedly meant to be. I only seen it an hour ago and had no clue what it was meant to be depicting... zombies - aye, RIP signs - aye. Blow-up dolls with Rangers scarves hanging from a top-tier of a fitba stadium? Absolutely no.
  7. Not bad for a wee visit, too!
  8. Aye, they are almost next door. Mamounia is decent. Been there a few times for lunch. Not really the food you want on a boiling hot day though. They also try to pass off shitey imported pisswater as Cisk.
  9. No need to worry. You'd never be able to tell it was raining last night. Clear blue skies today and roasting already!
  10. Every bus from Sliema apart from the ones going to Pembroke and Swieqi go to the Water Park. 15 minutes tops and come every other minute. Number 15 is a good one - regular and terminate there. Every bus going back the way also end up in Sliema. If you have other bigger plans, a car may be better but the buses are quite good these days. Nothing direct. Need to stop in Mosta I think. Probably better to get a supporters bus or share a taxi as getting back after the game will be problematic.
  11. If anyone is going to use the bus, you need to download the tallinja application. Saves a lot of hassle, even for us living on the island. No matter where you are, open the app, click "My Next Bus" and it'll show you the closest bus stop and a list of buses coming in the next 30 minutes and their routes. It can plan your route for you also. https://www.publictransport.com.mt/en/tallinja-smartphone-app There's a bus terminal right outside the airport entrance that take you anywhere on the island, too. Tickets are €2 for a 2hr trip (you can use on multiple buses in that time), so if there's a group of you, it might be better getting a taxi. Taxis are a bit of a rip-off for the distance, especially on your lonesome. Airport to Sliema/St.Julians is around €20 for a 15 minute journey. €25 to St.Paul's/Bugibba/Qawra - 25 minutes. When travelling back to the airport, leave plenty of time to get there. The traffic in Malta is a nightmare at times. I've managed it from Sliema in 10 minutes, but it has also taken over an hour before.
  12. Decent wee bar close by called Plough and Anchor. Loads of good whisky and does a really good draught pint of Cisk. Not a lot of bars do draught on the island although it's getting more common these days. Quite a few good restaurants, too, with Fresco's being better than Peppis. Also, and highly recommended for the Maltese factor, there's a wee pub just up the side street (Triq San Frangisk) called Nappa Bar. 500ml bottles of Skol / Cisk for €1.30, very cheap vodka and whisky. All the sport you want. It's tiny though and normally packed with locals and foreign exchange students... it's far from salubrious, but Captain Black and I were often found in there.
  13. There's a good portion of the SSC money spent!
  14. ... it's getting ready for the Scottish arrival. Just started to pish down!
