Dnipro Kids orphans
at 11:19 18 Mar 2022

Hopefully some remember back in Mar 2015 I posted a link to a charity that was raising funds for a special bed for a terminally ill orphanage parent to help her have some comfort through her illness, there was a good response and a significant amount was raised by Rs from
Mentioned here.
Thought some would like a little feedback albeit many years later.

Shows the power of our great game and the chance of a UEFA cup game in 2005 having an impact on these kids.
Stevie Carr (who I don’t know) is a remarkable man and I hope that the politicians step aside enough so he gets due recognition. From what I can gather he won’t seek publicity but deserves credit for his selfless work over 17 years.
Hopefully more good news stories to come sooner rather than later
MW & Crypto
at 17:00 19 May 2021

He maybe is the world's richest man?
On the podcast he was asked about investing in Crypto and, almost matter of factly, said not to go near them.
1 week later they've crashed, he's got the markets in his hand!
Hopefully he shorted on them and gave Les and Lee the tip too so we've got oodles of cash to burn on transfers again!!

Russian Bot on the other hand may be looking for a hand out...

Imagine if we'd started the season like this and fell away in the 2nd half to end up 8th

I have a feeling the names of the most common posters would be different
Paddle board
at 18:54 17 Apr 2021

Calling on the varied experiences of LFW!
Our 11yr old son is keen on the sea and did a lot of wet suit snorkeling around the shore last year and keen to try a bit of paddle boarding. We've got a safe part of the harbour with no tide running through, does go in and out, its relatively shallow so doesn't get waves as such.
Anyhow was wondering if the cheaper inflatable boards are any good for that type of thing?
Inflatable would be good as he could walk 100 yards or so carrying to the shore from the house rather than get his grumpy old man to drive him around to the slip at other side of harbour..
Tbh price is important as don't want to splash out on something expensive that might be a one summer flash in the pan.
Liam Kelly in penalty shootout, Scottish Cup

Motherwell v Morton

Listened on radio so no visuals but he saved 3rd down to his right.
Apparently dived down to his right for all 4 he faced.
Motherwell scored all 5 so he'll be the hero tonight, certainly they're delighted with him

Bloody hell, that's a 4yr contract and a half!

Came on as sub for injured Hibs keeper 60 mins into tonight's game.
Saved a 25 yarder comfortably down low and generally handled well, 1-0 when he came on and was a nervy affair for spelks since Hibs conceded a lucky last minute equaliser on Saturday, St Mirren pumped a few long balls in and 94th min Barnes wasn't convincing punching away a cross on the 6 yard line centre of goal, bounced about a bit and cleared.
Held on for his clean sheet and big 3 pts for Hibs.
They think it's a muscle injury for regular No. 1 Marciano so he's almost definitely out for the boxing day game v Rangers so might interest a few to watch that one.
He looks comfortable and confident doing well in the early stages of the League Cup but this is a step up now, hopefully does well against the Huns as he'll definitely be under pressure, big test for him

Played last 2 games for Hibs, conceded 2 direct freekicks, generally didn't have a lot to do but pulled of this save today.
Si Ferry meets... Clint Hill
at 21:39 12 May 2020

I can't see this on here, hope not a Spackman, friend told about this podcast and said it's very good so I'll hopefully get a chance to listen to it soon.
Si Ferry is an ex player and has done a lot of these.
PinnerPaul or other referee, a question
at 16:50 14 Apr 2020

Since we don't have current decisions to worry about can you clarify this for me;
Penalty shootout after extra time. Penalty taken hits the post directly from kicker, rebounds clearly out from goal, strikes keeper on back of head and goes in goal.
Is it a goal?

Hopefully dipping into the LFW mine of expertise here!
Ive never had a proper CV and all jobs I've had have really been through contacts etc and current one I was approached by employer.
There is a job come up locally which is interesting me but its a national company so full CV and application process, does anyone have a decent template I can download etc which suits the modern process?
I'm sure i've pretty much got suitable background and vocational qualifications, although it's in a different field to my work history, so it's getting it down in the right way so I can hopefully get to interview process.
Any help much appreciated!

Interesting twitter page, should appeal to many on here and not least Danny Paddox who could well be resident artist...

Good luck to our resident Trotskyite in bringing power to the people!

All the best Baz, hope it goes well.

Been offline a lot recently buying and moving house but this is one potential signing I can give report on.
Very good footballer who plays deep midfield mopping up in front of CBs and linking with more attack minded midfielders.

Pros - neat, tidy and cool with the ball under pressure. His ball retention this season has been remarkably good and he is reading the game really well sensing danger and loose passing by opposition.

Cons - Bit on the small side although not a weak player on the pitch he can lose possession with an odd slack pass per game which he has tightened up on but is still guilty of and they do lead to chances on goal due to field position these happen. Kind of accepted by Hibs fans as he is viewed as a high class player and his contribution overall is greater than these mistakes, would another club with less tolerant support give enough slack for him to bed in?
I say that purely as a new signing of what would be considered an experienced player, his maturing was done at Hibs and in 2nd tier so got an easier spell.

Biggest 'concern' would be his general fitness and durability. He spent months at Hibs on the treatment table with groin and muscular problems in his Hibs career until this his last season on contract, this season with Lennon alluding to a 'confidence/mental issues (much as Klopp did with Sturridge) he seen a specialist in London and has barely missed a beat and when he has been out of the team the odd time the difference has been palpable.
If he's fit I'd say he's definitely good enough for top half Championship and we're all sad to see him leave Hibs, which he does with best wishes from everyone. He had a very tearful walk around the ground away from the rest of the players at the end of season walk about with Sunshine on Leith belted out. Very emotional.
He was also a regular at U20 games supporting his younger colleagues and our son got his photo with him no problem, very friendly lad so good around the club I'm sure

There's a thread appeared on a Hibs forum that Liam Miller is in a hospice in Cork with a short time to live. Never knew he was ill and a shock to read this, anyone know any more?
I know he wasn't a success at LR and he had some mixed reviews at Hibs although overall I think he did a reasonably good shift there. Terrible news if true

BBC have stolen Brians copyrighted CTN, scoundrels!

1 min

Huddersfield 0-0 Tottenham

He nearly scored in the first minute!

Harry Kane twists and turns in the home area but his shot goes out for a corner.

The corner comes to nowt.

But they win another seconds later.
Passport SOS
at 16:13 21 Jun 2017

The font of knowledge on here needs to be flowing please!
Our goalkeeper applied for an American visa through Belfast and they've delayed sending his passport back to the extent he hasn't got it today and we're leaving Orkney tonight! Any suggestions as to what to do, are there any ways around this anyone knows?
They have assured him it was posted on Monday so will likely arrive tomorrow and can get it couriered out for the return journey but doesn't help outward obviously.
We only have one keeper and two who are very much part time so couldn't have happened to a worse player!!
Island Games
at 10:31 21 Jun 2017

Setting off on the boat tonight and arrive in Gotland, Sweden on Thursday afternoon. Getting excited /nervous now and hopefully after all the hard work and expense we can so ourselves justice.
We're the 12th most populated island out of the 16 football teams competing so our immediate aim will be a finish of 9-12th meaning we need to finish 3rd in our group and then we play a placing game after that, if we can sneak a draw against Minorca then we could have a chance of 2nd and a finish of 5th to 8th but realistically that will be a very tall order!
Wish us luck and there may be live streaming of the games on the BBC Radio Orkney Facebook page if there is a good enough signal at the venues.
If we win you can be sure I'll keep you updated!!
