Prevailing attitude of hunger

1428

Judging by these quotes, John Guidetti may just be the most excited footballer on the planet right now:

“I’m just going to work my socks off…. do my absolute very best…. give 100%.

“The one thing I hate more than anything is losing. I can’t stand it.

“For 90 minutes I am always giving everything.

“You can always expect 100% from your players and I’m going to give that [note the repetition of this assertion].

“I promise I’ll do my very best to do even a little bit of what [Henrik] did.

“Football without fans is nothing, it’s not worth it for me.”

There is a common theme across a few players who joined this summer, they have something to prove.  Guidetti, Mubarak and Tonev each had a difficult time last season, for varying reasons.  They need to hit the mark, whether it’s through form (Tonev), fitness (Guidetti) or simply being able to play in an environment which is remotely normal (Mubarak).

Scepovic is different.  He arrives with the wind at his back, but the prevailing attitude at Lennoxtown should be one of hunger. I suspect this contrasts starkly with last year’s arrivals.

    VVD ?

     

     

    Didnt see the game but an on line read of the Italian fitba press indicates that he didnt get a game .

     

     

    Holland were down to 10 men ( and 2-0 down ) after 9 minutes . There after they played 4-4 -1..

     

     

    The pundits and the public seem to have been impressed by the Italian team . One thing for certain ———- if Super intense Conte is your gaffer you put a shift in -or else.

    And what happens with Scotland Yard after independence? And the tarmac? Or do we just get 10% of everything? What about the rest of the UK? Do they get to have the peepul and ipox?

     

    It’s all very confusing.

    I’d be as well voting Tory as voting Jim Murphy (Labour) in the next General Election. they do not stand apart on any issue I can think of with exception of colour of their flags and maybe the colour of the crates they stand on. Oh! And he does like a wee falsified expenses claim form does Jim.

    ===========================

     

     

    Tartan Tories right enough

     

    Maggie Thatchers policies, Rupert Murdoch’s press and Donald Trump business prowess, yer leader is one for the watching……….Oh. and claiming a complete salary for sitting at Westminster (when you don’t) trumps an expense claim any day of the week.

  4. I have asked the question.

     

    What happens if Scotland votes no

     

    Then SNP win a majority of MPs at UK election standing on independence?

    I believe you are seeking out the individuals from the Yes Campaign spreading fear.

     

     

    I just need to open my eyes in the morning and switch on the TV to see the BritNats camp persistent in FEAR tactics.

     

     

    tell me. What fear tactics are you referring to with regards the Yes Campaign?

     

     

    Or is this the new FEAR tactic of teh BritNats to pretend the fear is being pushed by the overly positive Yes campaign.

     

     

    forehead astounded of.

    The egging of Jim Murphy was a despicable act. Five eggs wasted. Some nice chanterelle mushrooms and a bit of brie would have made a very nice omelette.

     

     

    MWD. I’m gutted the singing fruitcake has you at better odds than me for the UN gig:((

    Sweaty Socks. Wake up and smell the jellied eels.

     

     

    Boris and Nigel will be your future rulers and a good thing too.

     

     

    It’s manifest destiny. Tory toffs born to rule over you.

     

     

    So know your place you muppets!

     

     

    Ave It!

    ‘90% of today’s posts are political. Should I just come back in two weeks, or wait an antire month?’

    That’s up to you.

     

     

    But whenever you do come back on, why not try posting something about football?

  9. Heard a poem yesterday on Radio Scotland, titled, “Tony Blair’s contribution to world peace”, and it went like this:

    The No campaign ask questions of seperatists and get extremely poor answers.

     

     

    By asking for clarity of these obvious and crucially important questions the No camp are accused of scaremongering.

     

     

    Go figure.

  11. Court breaks for lunch. Back at 1.45 pm

     

    I will be suprised if this case goes in Ahmeds favour as the judge will just say QC Summers told me everything was rosy in the garden.

  12. Floodlights are back on at Ibrokes, all is well , Ibrokes lawyer says,.

     

    Man this mob can pump out the lies.

     

    Does chuckles friends lawyer get any say in this case?

    Auldheid – I agree with you. I have been very surprised that the carrot of access to the TV money down south hasn’t been dangled to tempt people to vote No.

     

    ========================================

     

     

    Perhaps because there is no possibility of it being delivered?

     

     

    I just think it is folly to dangle this carrot as another reason to vote No when we have been together for as long as any of us can remember, made it clear we’d be open to such a change and had the door slammed shut in no uncertain terms.

     

     

    Meanwhile we receive a paltry sum from the broadcaster despite Scottish subscriptions making up a far bigger chunk of their turnover in comparison.

     

     

    Better Together? This IS the reality.

     

     

    We either say no and hope for the best or we say yes and stop waiting for help that may never come.

     

     

    This is all just from a football perspective of course and not considering any other issues. But football is a big industry in our country – if you add the average attendances of all our clubs you’re probably looking at the best part of 200k match going fans.

     

     

    People power?

  14. Hunger should drive all professional footballers. I think in the main it does as complacency on the park is instantly identifiable.

     

     

    Izzy has taken ( unwarranted) pelters this week but he always looks hungry to me. I must admit my hero Sammi often looked complacent so I’d love to see his hunger return at his me club.

     

     

    I’m not excited by our arrivals yet. Last years arrivals created a false dawn too many so come on new guys show us your hunger and reinstate excitement among the fans!

    1. If you vote no the nhs in Scotland will be destroyed.

     

     

    2. If you vote no we’ll be forced out of the eu against our will.

     

     

    3. If you vote no we’ll be ruled by a junta run by Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage.

     

     

    4. If you vote no the Scottish national football team will be destroyed (though I suspect Germany might actually be doing that anyway).

  16. Frank Ryan's Whiskey on

    OK i am labouring the point here somewhat from my posts yesterday with regards to N.Sea oil production

     

     

    HMRC figures released last month show that revenues from North Sea oil and gas have fallen significantly to £4.7bn in 2013-14, down from £6.1bn.

     

     

    Production now reaching levels of 1970’s.

     

     

    Make of that what you will but facts is facts. Oil will not be an Indy Scotland’s golden goose.

  17. kitalba @ 12 52 .

     

     

    Croatia ? .

     

     

    From start to finish it took @ 10 years for Croatia to join the European Union . Having finally joined , it took @ 24 hours for the Croation RPI to rise by 15 %

    —————————-

     

    The problem Better Together have had is proving a positive to those who already think negatively about the current arrangement.

     

     

    I think BT should have gone for “How To Make it Even Better Together” by offering something to make it even better not focussing on what might be lost. Scottish football is on its knees and is a great example where it is not Better Together so why not promise to put that right?

     

     

    The independence lobby could not point this out because deteriorating Scottish football is what we get, under a system of football governance that is less than even handed or competent, as result of competing with a larger neighbour on our border offering a product that we are keen to buy

     

     

    Better Together would have had more impact if it accepted that some parts of the arrangement are not viewed as such and picked on some that they would address. Instead they have tried to persuade folk of what they might miss or the dangers of separation some of which will only be realised after the horse has bolted.

     

     

    What is happening is that the UK is being told that its current system of government is not working and some see independence as the answer, but it might be a cure that weakens both patients or kills one at the expense of the other.

     

     

    This is a campaign not thought through by either side. I know its Scotland’s oil (assuming we are not invaded) but who owns the wells and pipelines that get it out of the ground? Does that not give them some bargaining power when it comes to sharing it out? If so does that mean both sides depend on the other to benefit both?

     

     

    You can see philosophically where I’m going, independence is an illusion, there are only degrees of interdependence.

    I see we are in complete agreement: we either get together and solve the issues of resource distribution or go to war over them.

     

    England has form in that respect and whilst we wired in too, they outnumber is 10 to1.

  21. As with all things Sevco, including how the SMSM behave, every issue comes to a grinding halt because no-one is prepared to ask the obvious question and demand to know the truth.

     

    Every judge, lawyer and any other official you care to mention (except perhaps HMRC) have all failed in their basic duty of getting at the truth.

     

    Every one of them avoids the obvious question.

     

     

    Why do they do this?

     

    Because they already know the answer and don’t want to face it.

    I’d happily give up any notion of Celtic playing in England for a YES vote.

    =========================

     

    Fair enough but at what amount of downsizing?

     

     

    Malmo might be a good example, membership club with first CL qualification in yonks.

     

     

    As long as you know the cost. Id rather we grew.
