  5. Tennis 2016

    Was hoping it might be possible to work it out based on the draw brackets. Ah well, I'll just keep my fingers crossed!
  6. Tennis 2016

    Anyone know what day Murray is likely to play on if he makes it to the quarter-finals? I've got a ticket for Philippe Chatrier court on June 1st.
  7. I've not posted in ages, but I've been tempted back on by today's events, and reading some of the pish on this thread... Right, first off, congratulations to Hibs - fully deserved cup win, and the celebrations should be quite something. They were the better team, and we didn't deserve a thing based solely on the woeful defending throughout. Hibs could've been 3 up in the first half-hour, and I wouldn't have complained a bit. Stokes ran riot, and you could see the desire from the Hibs players - the only Rangers players who looked up for it at all were Miller, who I thought was excellent; and, to a lesser extent, Zelalem. As for the post-match stuff - I have absolutely nothing against a celebratory pitch invasion. It happens all over, and hell, I was on the pitch at Cheltenham just the other week when we won the league, so I fully understand the emotion involved that causes invasions to happen. But where it goes wrong is when it turns from celebration to goading & incitement. Millwall fans were doing the same thing against Bradford last night, and Hibs fans did it today. The minority who goaded (and, as seems to be the case from videos starting to emerge, assaulted) Rangers players & staff; and who ran to the Rangers end to goad the support, are arseholes. In saying that, the Rangers fans who came on to the pitch and got involved with the Hibs fans are also arseholes. There is no excuse for starting violence of any sort at the fitba. The Rangers statement would have been fine, other than the bit about the fans showing great restraint - that's laughable, and embarrassing when it was obvious that wasn't the case at all. Both clubs should be hammered by the SFA for the post-match scenes. And there must be an inquiry into what looked to be woefully inadequate security as well.

Happy to lend advice on eateries, watering holes & so on to anyone down visiting Can't wait for this though. Love race week, despite the inconvenience of it all!

  10. Euro 2016 Finals -Ticket Portal

    Git. I applied for the Germany-Poland game and got nothing. When does the ticket resale portal open? Definitely want to punt the Romania-Albania one.
  11. Euro 2016 Finals -Ticket Portal

    Got an email today to confirm that I got Cat 1 for Iceland-Austria at the Stade De France; and Cat 2 for Romania-Albania in Lyon. Hoping to make the Iceland game, but willing to sell on the Romania one (didn't even realise I'd applied for that one!). Face value is 105 Euro (approx. £83). Match is on Sunday 19th June at 21:00 local time. PM me if interested.
  12. Good goal, but not even the best goal I saw this weekend. Was at St Andrews on Saturday and saw this rocket: Then down in Dover yesterday and saw this: (Thankfully we came back & won!)
  13. Saw Room the other day, and thought it was incredible. Outstanding performance from Brie Larson, who's got a well-deserved Oscar nom for it. Thought the kid in it playing her son was fantastic as well. Well worth a watch. Also saw In The Heart Of The Sea last week. Decent enough, but nothing to write home about really. Booked to see Creed, The Revenant, Joy, The 5th Wave and Our Brand Is Crisis in the next couple of weeks - the joys of a Cineworld card. Not expecting much from the last two, but nothing else to do in January when money's low!
