#564360 Closing the doors

Posted by Hairy Scot on 12 December 2017 - 07:43 PM

For those who are interested I have set up fitba-forum  at http://fitba-forum.freeforums.net/


It's just the bare bones at the moment but if there is sufficient interest then we can look at whatever options are available for adding the bells and whistles.

#564320 Closing the doors

Posted by Hairy Scot on 11 December 2017 - 09:35 PM


Over the last few weeks and months I have not been able to commit the time that the forum and members deserve. I have therefore come to the decision that the forum will close within the next few weeks.
I have immensely enjoyed the forum over the years. Yes it can be tough when having to act as an admin, but the good times far outweighed those moments and for that I thank everyone (mostly everyone) who has been a part of the forum. 
I've enjoyed running the predictor and taking part. I've even enjoyed dishing out the prizes, which sometimes came from my own pocket. I was rubbish at predicting myself, but that didn't matter to me.
It's just unfortunate that I have to make this decision, but I feel it's the right one. I'm not sure when the forum will close, but it will happen in the next few weeks. I will probably leave the PM function open for a little longer than that, but i've not got the exact details ironed out.
Thank you all for being part of the forum, especially to those that have been here for so long. 



Sorry to hear that Craig.

It has been a great forum; lots of interesting characters (some good some bad). I'm sure we will all miss it.

We can assist with finances, but time is a different kettle of fish. Things like family and work have to take precedence.


To the rest of the members;

We could set up an SFF Mark II using free software.

This was tried in the past but it fell through. Perhaps if enough of us are interested we could make a go of it.

Let me know.

#564268 This has to be the quote of the week!

Was watching the NZ vs West Indies test and the commentators were discussing the various pitches in NZ and WI when one of the Kiwi commentators said, "It's not difficult to grow grass in the Caribbean".


I'm sure Chris Gayle will confirm that.                            :-D

#564262 Joke Thread - not for the easily offended

Posted by Hairy Scot on 10 December 2017 - 08:12 PM

As a child, I always had a fear of someone under the bed at night. So
I went to a shrink and told him: I've got problems. Every time I go
to bed I think there’s somebody under it. I'm scared. I think I'm
going crazy.”

“Just put yourself in my hands for one year,” said the shrink…. “Come
talk to me three times a week and we should be able to get rid of
those fears.” “How much do you charge?” “One hundred fifty dollars
per visit,” replied the doctor.  “I'll sleep on it,” I said.

Six months later the doctor met me on the street. “Why didn't you
come to see me about those fears you were having?” he asked.
“Well, $150 a visit, three times a week for a year, is $23,400.00. A
bartender cured me for $10.00. I was so happy to have saved all that
money that I went and bought a new pickup truck.”

“Is that so?” With a bit of an attitude he said, “and how, may I ask,
did a bartender cure you?”

“He told me to cut the legs off the bed. Ain’t nobody under there now.”

It’s always better to get a second opinion

I must confess that I was not sure with which thread it might be concomitant.                                                         :twisted:

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers slaughters Motherwell chief and says penalty fallout lacked class and dignity





Mind you it is strange to see a Celtic manager saying that a referee made a correct decision.      :twisted:

#563362 The Irish border Brexit issue

Posted by Hairy Scot on 01 December 2017 - 07:22 PM

It's obvious that the EU bureaucrats do not want Brexit to succeed because that will lead to the eventual disbanding of the EU and they'll all be off the gravy train.

They are going to dredge up and magnify as many trivial issues as they can find.

#563347 Rangers thread v2

Posted by Hairy Scot on 01 December 2017 - 06:18 PM

I see resolution 11 which needed 75% to pass went through with 78.3


No doubt the comments sections of various papers will be filled with good wishes from the usual suspects.

#563311 Rangers v Aberdeen....29/11/2017

Posted by Hairy Scot on 30 November 2017 - 06:39 PM

100% legit mate. If you look i have went for an away win on Sunday so i am hardly likely to think Rangers can beat Aberdeen at Pitrodrie and not Ibrox am i?



I'll take your word for it Jif and give you another point. I'd think everyone else in the wee competition would agree with that. Sort out yer one's & two's y'hear....
