Motherwell Punished For Fans' Misconduct

Today, 17:50

....but will not be punished unless Motherwell FC don't actively find the fans who invaded the pitch and threw flares?

Seems farcical as usual from the bigwigs.

What's so special about today with the special program, BBC reporters in Kazakhstan and a feckin' countdown timer to launch?

We've had British, Afghan and Mexican people in space before... 

 

You'd be forgiven if you just tuned in and thought it was a solo expedition by member of the royal family.


Euro Draws

Tough one for my tournament pick, Napoli, against Villarreal.

 

Dortmund v Porto is another tasty fixture.

Arsenal v Barcelona seems to be the tie of the round in the CL.

 

 


Venice

Took advantage of Ryanair's €2 each way offer during the week for me and the good lady.    Going mid-January Sun-Tue.

 

Is the bus from Treviso airport the best way to get to Venice itself?    Have only used this airport as a hub for Scotland games before but seen a fair few buses - as well as public transport. 

 

Highly rated hotel is booked next to the square so will be very central.

 

Venice seems pretty much like the best tourist trap ever.  Not too bothered with that - quite keen on stoating about for the two days.

 

Apart from the top-end touristy stuff, is there anything off the beaten path that would be interesting?

 

I've been to Venice around 20 years ago, but spent most of my time in newsagents going through every Italian newspaper trying to find out Thistle's Intertoto results.  Never really got into the culture then!

 


Partick Thistle - Debt Free

Hope Brown McMaster was well enough to hear the news before he passed away recently.   He was our chairman during Save the Jags and this day was only a pipe-dream.

 

Not sure what this means for the playing side of things, if we can offer better cash or god forbid, pay a transfer fee!

Also, at long last,  we're getting live commentary of the games :ok:
