  2018 Winter Olympics
Posted by: ritchiebaby - Today, 00:30 - Forum: Winter sports - No Replies

OK, I know it's a wee bit early but the GB Curling teams have been announced for the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics, being held from 9 to 25 February.

The two teams are skipped by Eve Muirhead, who won Bronze at Sochi in 2014, and Kyle Smith, a relative newcomer who has won Bronze, Gold and then Silver at the World Juniors from 2012 until 2014.

The Men's team include Eve's 2 brothers and also 2 Smith brothers. The Women's 5th member is Kelly Schafer, who lives in Canada, but like the rest is most definitely Scottish.

  Not 6-in-arow, just 2-in-a-row? Gers' Dave King on the 'wind up?'
Posted by: 0762 - Yesterday, 22:42 - Forum: Celtic - No Replies

Reading King's recent irrelevant remarks re the Hoops' relevant 6-in-a-row, and chasing 10 Scot Premiership titles in-a-row, it's clear that he is trying to impress Gers' fans with this kinda ridiculous dialogue! Somebody should maybe remind him that his own previously named oldco footie club should have had some of it's previous league titles formally removed due to highly questionable financial activities brokered in order to 'gain an illegal advantage'! Also his comment, that Celtic's final pts gap over Rangers last season should have been bigger if Celtic was that good, 'beggars belief' esp as Celtic won the 'domestic treble'! It indicates to me that the man lacks humility and no surprise there based on his past brash behaviour! Gers' lack of any trophy winning in season 2016-17 was prob a big factor that shattered his own optimistic expectancy for that football season but that's life!

  Josh Harrop
Posted by: themaclad - 23-06-2017, 15:45 - Forum: Preston North End - No Replies

Preston North End have agreed a deal to sign Manchester United youngster Josh Harrop when his contract expires at Old Trafford.

The 21-year-old, who was United’s top scorer at reserve team level last season, has agreed a four-year contract at Deepdale from 3rd July.

Harrop Ready For New Challenge
Just now

The two sides have come to a significant undisclosed compensation agreement, with player turning down a new deal with the Premier League giant, but being under the age of 24, meaning they are entitled to a fee.

The Stockport-born attacking player came to the attention of supporters when he scored on his first team debut for Jose Mourinho’s side on the final day of last season, but he has ended his time with the Red Devils to join a number of former team-mates with the Lilywhites.

Speaking about the move he said: “I'm delighted to be here, it's a new start for me to get things going in my career and I'm buzzing to get playing and to make an impact in the team.

“I've got four years now at Preston North End where I know I am going to be and I am going to put everything into that and dedicated myself to do the best for the team and the best for the fans.

“Hopefully I can achieve my aims and ambitions that I have set myself by coming here and that's to get promoted with Preston North End and help the club get as high as we can.”

Manager Simon Grayson was delighted to have beaten a number of clubs to Josh’s signature, adding: “Josh is a player who has attracted a lot of interest this summer and we had to move quickly to secure his signature. He adds to our group of hungry young players who want to progress and we are looking forward to working with him and seeing him improve."

Speaking in United’s final league matchday programme of last season their reserve team boss Nicky Butt said of his then player of the year award nominee: “He’s talented, energetic and has a will to win, so he ticks a lot of boxes.”

  1st League match of season 2017-18 - Partick Thistle at home!
Posted by: 0762 - 23-06-2017, 15:12 - Forum: Hibernian - Replies (3)

Next season's SPFL fixtures revealed today and Hibs first game is v the Jags - IMO not a bad opening match and it will be in front of a big Hibs support at ER Stadium. I wanna see Hibs 'lay down a marker' of intent for the rest of the season and see where it takes us now we are back in the top league!

  Summer arrivals 2017
Posted by: themaclad - 23-06-2017, 15:04 - Forum: Barnsley - No Replies

Barnsley have signed defender Liam Lindsay from Partick Thistle for an undisclosed fee.

The 21-year-old centre-back has agreed a three-year contract at Oakwell after making 42 appearances for Scottish Premiership club Thistle last season.

"He comes off the back of an exceptional season in Scotland and we believe he will kick on here," said Barnsley boss Paul Heckingbottom.

Lindsay rejected the chance to join League One club Oxford United last week.

He is Barnsley's third summer signing following the arrival of St Mirren midfielder Stevie Mallan and Southampton full-back Jason McCarthy.

  Hello Leeds
Posted by: themaclad - 23-06-2017, 15:02 - Forum: Leeds United - No Replies

Leeds United have signed FC Twente midfielder Mateusz Klich for an undisclosed fee on a three-year deal.

The 27-year-old is the first player to join the club since Thomas Christiansen was appointed head coach last week.

The Poland international has previously had spells in his homeland and Germany.

Klich told the club website: "I'm excited to come to England and test myself in the Championship and I can't wait to get going."

So the owners of the Dingles are being investigated by China's banking regulator over loans made to the company. Apparently a 7.1% drop in share value since the announcement, so sad. Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin

Sheffield Wednesday (H)
Leeds United (A)
Derby County (A)
Reading (H)
Middlesbrough (A)
Barnsley (H)

Piss easy start, a couple of fast fading Yorkie sides, followed by a side who usually sack their manager after we draw there, so it's goodbye Rowett.
Follow that with a side who were crap in the play off final and then a side who cannot make up their mind which division they want to be in. International break then we take on Dickie Bird.

Predicted points total sod all.
