Our move north of the border means that we'll certainly be picking/choosing games more than ever.  But can't wait to get back once the new owner is on place and we're back up & running.

Likely that we'll be attending more away than home from now on.  The northern-ness of Div Four next year is a plus, if I'm honest.  There are 10 teams in the league within a 4 hr drive of here...Carlisle being the closest - which we can reach in just under 2 hrs.  Really looking forward to it.  All we need now is a team.  And a manager.

Where did you move to in the end Ardiles? I remember meeting you at Hartlepool away some 15 years or so ago when I lived in Edinburgh and would drive to northern away games.

During that time, I stupidly thought Sheffield was more north than it actually is when I drove to Hillsborough, which was memorable in itself for me nearly bumping into David Blunkett and his dog, and all of the contents of my molten lava meat pie falling out of the bottom onto the floor, leaving me with just a pastry shell during half time. Final score was 1-1, Mooney scored.

Haha. It sounds ridiculous but I was kind of lost trying to find the away section at Hillsborough and a dark people carrier had parked up which had caught my eye, and so the entourage and guide dog had stepped out and with me also wandering about like a blind man, nearly walked in to the poor bugger!

Hopefully it was a good pie, and having lived in Edinburgh you will know a good pie!

It was until the steak and kidney disappeared through the bottom!! I do love a scotch pie but generally don't eat food at football. However I did partake in one during a Hearts v Kilmarnock league game. I think they must have recognised my English accent as when I peeled the casing away discovered a badly burnt pie, this was literally black as the ace of spades. I'm led to believe Killie pies are supposed to be decent.

I'm also aware that this is going violently off topic which is going to piss some people off during this very important time so any takeover chat today JJ?

Smiley no news in the last few days at all mate, I think cogs are turning but its now a matter of time as soon as Power realises the game is up.

Just want it all over with now so we can get back to being miserable on the pitch not off it again.

Very true. It will be interesting what team we put out at Melksham on Friday, but from what I have seen from other League 2 sides, most have only played their youths and triallists anyway which sounds like what we are going to have to do anyhow.

We're renting in a small village near Loch Lomond right now.  But recently had offer accepted to buy our own place a bit further east.  So still Stirlingshire, but closer to Stirling itself.  Early days, but really enjoying it up here so far.

And I remember the Hartlepool meet as well.  That was getting on for 18 yrs ago, btw.  Probably the coldest game I've ever been to.

Great stuff, know Stirling quite well an old girlfriend came from there, my best mate lives a bit further East in Alyth near Perth, outside of the big cities its lovely.

The only minus point is everything is so far away from everywhere else with shitty roads. Loch Lomond is a really beautiful area.

Lovely part of the world is Loch Lomond! I don't know Stirling particularly well but it does look very picturesque around there. I assume Stirling Albion will be your local club?
