Re: And today, joining the underground .....

Olivia Newton-John. Hands up all those who fell in love with her, ... well, lusted after her, in the late 70s. You wanted to get "Physical"? :D Country Roads have taken her home! :( Or was it a Neutron Bomb? I have a couple of her albums in the car and would still listen to them from time...

Re: What are you watching?

Bread Boy at the Lyric. Truly dreadful. Imagine the worst school play you've ever seen. That would have been much better. No plot no direction and a load of posh kids pretending they're from the Shankill and failing miserably. That's 2 hrs and £24 I'm not getting back. Sorry if any of yer weans or ...

Re: Absent Friends

We’re in Berlin and just about to raise a glass to Stew McDowall who sadly passed on 16 June, having missed his funeral service today. He was the first to properly welcome us into the UR family and away trips, in particular, will never be the same again. It was a pleasure to be sitting next to him ...

Re: Pre Season Games 2022/23

Why would we want to play Glasgow? Could we not get another English side, meaybe even a French team? Cost. We would need to pay an Engerlish or Frenchy team to come here for what is after all just a training session against players from outside our own squad. Can get as much out of playing Weegies ...

what was the uptake?
