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.

    And here’s me trying to deflect some of you guys away from the referendum debate!

     

    Ye cannae win>}

  2. South of Tunis I know but allegedly that’s just fear tactics.

     

     

    MWD so when the no voters use fear tactics it’s not really fear tactics can you explain the difference please?

     

     

    On the council tax freeze well no the council tax freeze does not help everyone. If disproportionately impacts the poor who rely more on council services. Therefore it’s a regressive form of taxation. We are being told that Scotland would be a more socially just society. So again why freeze council tax and not raise income tax via the scottish parliament? Your point that raising taxes would reduce the block grant from the uk is simply incorrect. There is no such connection.

    A pleasant wee tune. The singer looks like a more endearing version of Robbie Fowler.

    1 of them is sight.

     

     

    Apparently dragon flys see in “fast motion”…Their eyes/vision can detect/react to things

     

    4 times faster than Humans.

     

     

    Good for cathching wee insects that are probably avoiding raindrops.

     

     

    So if I was a wee insect I would just let the rain drop take me out better than eaten

    I will look into that and get back to you.

     

     

    I have possibly been to busy ranting away to have noticed it!

    glandaly. Not much chance of that mate on here. Seems like most of the masterdebaters have had a sense of humour bypass.

  7. Everybody that failed to answer my question asking what are the Scottish Banks. Well done you were right. There aren’t any (apart from the Airdrie Savings Bank).

    I come at the Independence debate and the referendum as a whole from the point if view that I have no faith in Westminster Government. I believe it is a form of Government which is wholly stitched into the fabric of the city of London and that Westminster is Government from London, by London for London and there have been too many separate individual and unconnected occasions when London has been caught lying to the nation about what it does in the name of Government.

     

    —————————————————————————————————————————-

     

     

    That paragraph sums up perfectly, my reason(s) for voting YES.

     

     

    I will accept all the uncertainty and possible negatives and disadvantages that Independence brings, but, as long as WM has no influence in MY country’s affairs, I will continue to support the Independence movement.

    I sent a message to the email address on Tuesday night for two briefs but I haven’t heard anything back yet.

     

     

    That’s nothing – I sent him an email at Easter about the CQN Seville book – I’m not holding out much hope of a reply now

    A point I raised myself for voting yes many weeks ago on this blog and so well put by your good self BRTH

     

     

    London is Scotland’s big vampire squid sucking the lifeblood (money) out of Scotland

     

     

    Sell your house in London buy a castle in Scotland has never been truer and this imbalance whilst we are part of this unequal illegal marriage called the Union will never readjust whilst the Londoners hold our purse strings.

     

     

    Time for a divorce time to vote yes

     

     

    AYE and aye again

  12. Council tax should not only be frozen but abolished completely and replaced.

     

     

    It’s possibly the stupidest most unfair tax there is imo.

     

     

    Rant over :)

    Take your own curry sauce (in powder form in a sachet), ask for a cup of hot water at the kiosk and combine. Voila. You can sell the excess sauce to other curry-sauceless chip consumers.

     

     

    That’s capitalism in action pal!

    As was pointed out to me at the weekend, the figure for the last two years re oil barrels recovered from the North Sea don’t paint a fully accurate picture because there was a record development expenditure on North Sea installations last year with the result that a series of new rigs will come on stream this year delivering an additional 750 Million Barrels of oil starting 2015.

     

     

    However, of even greater significance is the reserves on the Atlantic shelf which could make the entire North Sea reserves from day one look like chickenfeed.

     

     

    The technology now exists to extract the oil and gas concerned as well.

    Thanks for sorting that out. Expecting the usual, sedate, high-brow think tank experience we’re accustomed to down this way.

  17. Off topic I know, but can any yoos chaps help me out with the name of the Scotland coach who was responsible for young Mcgeady being overlooked for the national set-up?

    Thanks for the Sicilian expat’s view on independence :) That’s not how it’s seen here, actually. The Financial Times reckons Scotland’s finances will be better than rUK’s from the start. The boss of Aberdeen Asset Management was on Radio 4 this morning saying they already do business in 33 different countries and Scotland becoming independent would make no difference to their business. They have over £200 billion of assets under management. There are over 2000 members of Business for Scotland saying they think independence will be better for Scotland.

     

     

    On the No side, a lot of people whose first name seems to be Sir think it will be A Bad Thing. :)

  20. For anyone following Ahmad vs Rangers, don’t confuse Annual General Meeting and Share Issue. You need to give 14 days notice for an AGM; there are circumstances in which it could be called at shorter notice (likewise with an Extraordinary General Meeting).

     

     

    A share issue follows different rules re issuing a prospectus and so on (if it’s a public offering) and it would be too late to organise that for September, but an AGM could still be held in September.

     

     

    I think it’s an EGM they’ll need though, just to rubber-stamp Administration!

    I see your on the mend

     

    I hope your missus has a joiner on speed dial tae widen to provide better access to

     

    your rooms re expansion of the waistline !!! Catchye ;))

     

     

    Love xx

  22. Am thinking if I’m ahmad, and I get a knock back today, and thems go teets up in two weeks, and my dosh isn’t ring fenced, the sheet would (should prob. A better word) hit the fan .

  23. Geordie I am not arguing about the whys and wherefors of the council tax…….just why there was a freeze…..

    How many people do they employ?

     

     

    From what I can see most of them are one man and his dog outfits. Nothing wrong with that but its a bit misleading when they’re lumped in with ICI and BP and counted as a business.

     

     

    I know one guy that’s in it and he’s as thick as mince.

  25. Chavez .

     

     

    You are welcome .

     

     

    Time( and a referendum ) will tell .

     

     

    I will be delighted to have been wrong .

  26. weeminger,

     

     

    According to RBS, “We are a public company incorporated in Scotland (Company number 090312) and have our registered office at 36 St Andrew Square, Edinburgh EH2 2YB.”

     

     

    And BoS: “Bank of Scotland plc, The Mound Edinburgh EH1 1YZ. Registered in Scotland, Registered number SC327000.”

     

     

    They sound like Scottish banks to me.
