I know it isny but thought I'd stick this on while in the mood......
T'was the night before xmas & the forum was dead
All the SFF posters were asleep in their beds
But wait there was one, I made a mistake
A member renowned was still wide awake
Sinking bottles of bevvy between trips to the crapper
He tried to convice Puff Vanilla was the main rapper
This one and that one he posted in vain
But no answer was the reply again and again
By now you'll have guessed that Hoopz is that lad
But I like to think he's a raping big cad
Craig our admin woke up feeling bolder
But his missus said only if you put up the towel holder
And Bundy was pissed as the drink had no mercy
He was dreaming of Rooney and Robin Van Persie
Japster was lying, tossing and turning
Snoring out loud and his ears they were burning
Cos someone somewhere unaware of the dangers
Was having a dig at his team known as Rangers
Shagger the Dons fan shouted out in his sleep
That Charlie Green bought a club on the cheap
They can't be called Rangers cos that club is dead
And happy wi this turned ower in his bed
Big John the sponge is out cold he's no faking
But dreaming of Belfast and aw that stocktaking
I could tell youse somethings but don't try and tempt me
The one thing I'll say is his legs must be empty
To those I have missed please don't be mad
Just enjoy this a wee bit, a little, a tad
As morn draws near and daylight appears
I'll soon raise a glass and give youse three cheers
This poster is knackered from aw this writing
So I hope it's aw peaceful and none o' the fighting
I extend to you all Great Xmas cheer
And a Happy '13 with plenty of beer.

I wanted to say a special thank you to Geo for his work on the quiz last year. His efforts have not only provided entertainment for many on the forum, but he was also kind enough to put up a prize pot out of his own pocket. I am very grateful for that gesture. The winners, without exception, agreed that they would rather donate their prize money to charity, with each winner choosing their own charity. I have donated the money on behalf of Geo, with the receipts below.
I hope that Geo appreciates the good work he has done for the forum and for charity. Thank you.
There will be a 2014 quiz, which will be launched shortly. I hope to make it a little easier for Geo to run the quiz this year and it will launch once I have sorted out the technical side of things.

No, we're paying for Scotland being a backwater no mark league. The lack of money in this country's football setup means they only way we even have a hope in hell of coming close to competing with the likes of Barcelona and AC Milan is by making it into the Champions League group stages where our significant income can be generated.
Unfortunately, our crap coefficient - whose crapness is still contributed to by Rangers currently - means we have three qualifying rounds to get to that money. That means we can't budget for it, and therefore can't spend it until we know we can get it. Ultimately that gives you about three days at the end of the transfer window to spend it, and you can't do proper business in that climate because all good value players have usually gone or at the very least those with bigger budgets have been alerted to their existence and already priced us out even with the Champions League money.
Last season we did extraordinarily well to progress from the group stages after getting the combination of a reasonable draw and having a team with several good players who played to their maximum potential. Contrast that with this season where the draw was harder that last year's, and some of those players who played well last season were gone (Wanyama, Hooper) while others didn't play anywhere near as well as they did last season (Samaras, Ambrose).
I'm sick of this utter pish that we're missing Rangers. No we don't. We miss decent competition. We've missed decent competition since the mid-80s. That's why no one invests in this league, it's not worth watching. That's why Rangers habitually got horsed in the Champions League in the 90s, and why neither Celtic nor Rangers have managed to get past the last sixteen of the tournament in the four occasions we've got that far.
Scottish Football needs a strong Rangers AND Aberdeen AND Hearts AND Hibernian AND Dundee United. It needs ONLY a strong Rangers like it needs a hole in the head. And anyone who actually believes that to be the case obviously wasn't paying attention for the twenty years or so prior to Rangers liquidation last year.

Some comments elsewhere leads me to make the following statement.
When I asked each mod to help out on the forum, I made it clear that if they accept, they remain on the forum as their own person, with the added responsibility of being a mod. They can have their own opinions, whatever they may be, and portray them on the forum, as long as they obviously don’t break any rules. I do not want robots. I want the mods to enjoy the forum as a user, but help out as a mod when needed. If they have a differing opinion than another member, then fine. If they have a differing opinion than me, then that is completely fine as well. What I care about is whether they can moderate fairly, and without bias.
There are a number of mods on the forum, with me as admin. I allow the mods to lock threads, and move posts, but warnings and bans, and other behind the scenes work is done solely by me. When there is a big decision to be made, we make it together. I have the final say in everything, but through discussion I think we have almost exclusively all come to the same conclusion. When acting as moderators I have no doubt that we remove personal feelings and do what we think is fair and best for the forum. The fact we work together as a group helps ensure that.
The mods help out as a favour to me, as well as giving something back to the forum itself. They, we, do not receive any financial rewards for what can be very hard work. That has to be respected.
If anyone has an issue with any decisions we make, feel free to contact me and we can discuss it via PM.

Saturday will live with me forever I was a emotional wreck was thinking about my old man he sadly passed away on the the 25th of January and he never seen them win the scottish cup and to think he watched the famous five play when the ref blew the whistle and he had a great game PS I stayed on my seat and would like to apologise to players and staff of rangers that were assualted from thugs I won't call the fans I hope they are caught and punished severely by the courts they are cretins they spoiled for us but more importantly the players parading the cup with there family's
Fair play Davy...... great result

From a dad who has had his son having open heart surgery i wish you well Mr Souness. Hope its not too serious.

Thanks to you all. I spent almost four weeks in bed, due mainly to nausea, anxiety and lethargy. Seen various doctors (I refused hospital treatment) and eventually they found a cure - ant--sickness, anti-biotics and larger dose of diazepam tablets for my virus. Feeling not to bad now, but still in my new bedroom downstairs because unable to go upstairs. I couldn't stand any noise or bright lights. Did go online at times, but only to tweet or have a quick look at the forum. Concentration was nigh impossible. Thanks again.

I have to say one of the most satisfying moments for me is in my work !
Sounds sad but its not really, I'm quite fortunate in my work where i have no fixed base, I'm in different buildings and venues from week to week and usually doing a different job week to week.
When I go into one of the After Care's or various Nurseries that we run that i have not been at for a little while a big line of children come up to greet you shouting your name and giving you a big welcome really puts a smile on my face........get an even bigger smile when the staff say they never see the children do that with any one else.

Celtic star Jim Kennedy born today in 1934. He made his debut aged 22 years and 83 days Vs Partick Thistle on 23/04/1956 in Scottish League (A 0-2). His playing record is 259 games scoring 2 goals.

I've got a wee story to tell about this Gentleman. When I was about 18 years old in the winter of '67, the company I worked for were doing some maintenance work in the school situated just outside the front of Celtic Park, and sent me there to do some work (I was an apprentice). Hope you're not getting bored with this story, 'cos I am, especially, with all this one finger-typing. Anyway, nearly all my fellow workers and I had a lunchtime kickabout in the big area outside the main (old main doors) entrance of the Stadium. They were, and me too, hoping to impress Jock Stein (btw he parked his car in the school playground!) and others i.e. first team players and the Quality Street Gang with our football skills when they were going back and forward to, or is it from, training at Barrowfield (btw, we were told by our boss under no circumstance to annoy the players for autographs). To cut a short story long , the ball was eventually kicked over the wall into the ground. The wall was too high to climb, so they told me, no ordered me, to knock (chap, then) on the door and retrieve the ball. They all scattered before the door was opened. Jim Kennedy answered, I asked him, timidly, forgive the pun, if it was okay to get my ball (git ma ba'). He replied " I see they've all deserted you, come in and get it yourself " I was shown where the ball was via (through) the tunnel. I wasn't in awe, being a bluenose .. well a wee tiny bit. Then he offered me a tour of the stadium, which I agreed too. I did see the 'Big Cup' and the Exhibition Cup and other wonderful trophies, etc ( I wasn't in awe, but ...!). Don't get me wrong, in my eyes, the Ibrox trophy room is far better, and fuller! Anyway, back to the saga: I never really thanked the man for his kindness that day, but I am now in writing this. P.S. I did omit to say that I was wearing a Gers tammy that cold day when the Gentleman invited me in.

Today is the 25th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster when 96 football went to watch their team and never came home.
Most of us on here will remember watching this unfold on the news channels and probably not realising at the time how serious it was. What many people still can't accept is how the fans who died and many of those who survived were blamed and demonised in the press while those in authority lied for years to cover their own arses. All of which is thankfully come out now.
I also remember watching the fire in the stadium in Bradford when 56 people didn't make it home and a couple of weeks later Heysel when 39 died. Also one that is closer to home for many, the Ibrox disaster when 66 people lost their lives.
RIP each and every one of those who lost their lives and hopefully we never see anything like this again.

Thought it would be good to revive this old tradition........some oldies ---> http://forums.scotti...christmas-poem/
Again we are here
As the times drawing near
The folk shed a tear
As we wait for New Year
With podcasts galore
It will be more than a cheer
When all that we want
Is more freaking beer
The times are a changing
As we see in a year
All the new faces
Help make it clear
So in with the new
And out with the old
When predictions are told
We can all be so bold
So tell us your stance
And get to the point
Is it Sevco i hear
No its Rangers I'm told
Its nearly New Year
As the times drawing near
So lets raise a glass for
Some more festive cheer

It looks to me like some folk are shooting the messenger here.
it has been said already that having strong views on a subject is one thing,but surely does not make you a racist (in this instance)
It's a tradition from another country that some folk have now decided they find offensive. If it is to do with race then yes there could be somethign to complain about, if it is to do with soot then what is there to be offended about?
I've had a few discussions with Hairy, both on threads and via PM, regarding views he holds on certain subjects and no doubt we'll cross swords in the future regarding these and other opinions that we hold. However I wonder if this thread would have run to four pages if it had been any other regular poster that had made the opening post. To me it's folk looking to have a personal dig at Hairy because they have disagreed with his opinions in the past and not really too much to do with the content of the report.

Got to disagree mate, I think this has been a cracking season, with Motherwell, Ross County, Inverness and St Johnstone putting the bigger sides in Scotland to sword. I've loved watching the Edinburgh and North East "giants" being taken down a peg or too. I've also enjoyed watching the the Dundee and Highland derbies too. 4 games to go and the race for the euro spots is still on as is the relegation battle. If this is an example of a boring season I'll take it every year.
Not saying this because Rangers aren't there but has this no been the most boring league season for a long time? I used to watch the SPL regularly but after seeing some pretty poor games I haven't watched nearly as much
Congratulations to Celtic too, some people might say with their vast resources and impressive playing squad they should have won the league at a canter but at the end of the day the table doesn't lie. Over the course of the last 34 games they've been the best side and deserve the plaudits.
