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.

    US to start exporting oil?

     

     

    The US has a glut of oil following a fracking revolution that promises to make the country the world’s largest crude producer, ahead of Saudi Arabia and Russia.

     

     

    According to the US Energy Information Administration, America produced a record 992,000 barrels of oil a day last year.

     

     

    However, Congress banned exports after price shocks from the 1973 Arab oil embargo led to the notion that the US was running out of oil.

     

     

    Companies are allowed to export refined fuel, such as gasoline and diesel, but not oil itself. The US Commerce Department, which oversees the Bureau of Industry and Security, changed the definition of some ultra-light oil, clearing the way for the two companies to sell abroad.

     

     

    Energy research group IHS believes the move could add more than $1 trillion (£590bn) to government revenues through 2030, trim fuel prices and create an average of more than 300,000 jobs a year.

  2. Neganon,

    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!

    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. :)

    Aberdeen Asset – really a company guilty of doing taxpayers out of millions.

     

     

    The firm paid senior employees and directors over £31m free of income tax and National Insurance Contributions between 2000 and 2003 using an Employee Benefit Trust (EBT).

    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.

     

     

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~++~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

     

     

    No offence,mate-but…..

     

     

    The UK gets very little benefit from its oil resources when compared to the money accrued by similar nations.

     

     

    Why is that?

     

     

    We seem to have allowed petrochemical companies to plunder our wealth for very little return. I cannae think of any other country being so styoooooopit,except maybe corrupt states like Nigeria.

     

     

    Oops,sorry. Now I get it.

     

     

    Sorry for the above. We live in a corrupt state and someone is creaming it off.

     

     

    Heyho,’twas always thus.

    what would you replace it with that was fairer?

     

     

    Serious question by the way

    Dear Fred

     

     

    I wanted you to know that I am watching events closely on the ABN front. It is in Scottish interests for RBS to be successful, and I would like to offer any assistance my office can provide. Good luck with the bid.

     

     

     

    Yours for Scotland

    Since then I have had a laptop makeover and so am completely behind the times. If you send it again I will have a go at replying.

  14. Football comments will come later but …

     

     

    Interesting line now from the Tiddlers / Bronski’s — end London rule now.

     

     

    And yet they want to keep the pound / the Bank of England / interest rates + MPC …

     

     

    You couldn’t make this stuff up.

     

    The Children’s Crusade was better organised than this.

     

     

    And then their is the BS / RM / KO’B / DT axis of weasals. At least they all can have Wee Eck on speed dial if they so much as burp a request.

    That wasn’t/isn’t a consideration for me. Westminster is my problem. Not saying Scottish politics is whiter than white, but, I haven’t been made aware of any expense scandals or “sleaze” accusations, that haven’t been properly dealt with.

     

     

    I await enlightenment of course.

    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.

    I’m sure there’s clever guys out there getting oodles of cash could iron out any problems with my set up ;)

  19. Carrying on with the theme of the last couple of days posts, I’ve decided to make up a list of Celtic players who I feel would be pro independence and pro better together…

     

     

    No real logic as to why…

    Scott Brown

    No contest mo chara, income from N.Sea oil has been and continues to be wasted. The UK has received a pittance in tax revenues. How much have the BPs, Exons, etc made in comparison?

     

    Can’t see this changing being reversed regardless of who wins the divorce vote the rights to exploit the a blocks mineral reserves were sold to the highest bidder so legally the oil belongs to the lease holder of the block. That is unless the Scots do a Chavez and nationalize the industry and boot out the multinationals. Can’t see that happening can you?

  21. The ‘No’s have managed to swing me

     

     

    We need the oil to pay for other stuff like Trident and illegal wars

     

     

    We need to promote fear and self loathing as an excuse to justify this.

     

     

    next….

    Do you know the absolute worst thing about living in London????

     

     

    I cannae find Mother’s Pride (or any plain bread for that matter) anywhere, nor can I get a decent recipe online to make my own.

     

     

    If Scotland becomes independent, will this problem be fixed?

     

     

    Why is no one answering that????
