Enjoying a Restful Christmas apart from watching Hibs Lose!

Nothing much going on politically apart from stupid Christmas and New year Statements from the Scottish First Minister bleating on about Scottish Independance.
The Scottish press are very upset today as the new Microsoft Earth has not got up to date images and still shows the Scottish Parliament site as a Contruction site although the building has been open since 2004!

I watches the Hibs V Rangers match without much expectation and in truth it was in parts a one sided affair and only Rangers slacking off gave us any chance in the game with a very good goal from Zemmama althouh a 2-1 defeat probably flattered us!
In truth the Hibs players played well against an in-form Rangers but the injury hit sqaud was really exposed and is currently threadbare not having built up the sqaud in the summer and we are now paying a heavy price with defeat after defeat and sliding down the table. We need a new Manager quickly and we need new players in the January window especially Colin Nish from Kilmarnock and a good full back and central defender or it will be avery long season. We could do with Riordan or Killen back on loan from Celtic or even Kris Boyd who cant get a name at Rangers? Only bright note is that Hearts are in an even worse state than we are!!
I wont see the home game against Motherwell on Wednesday as it has been rightly posponed after the sudden and tragic death of Motherwell Captain Phil O'Donnell at the end of yesterday's match against Dundee United, collapsing on the pitch and pronounced dead very soon after!

All our problems will only get worse when David Murphy leaves in January, Celtic and Rangers fighting it out for him!
We will be sorely missed and will leave us even deeper in trouble and will no doubt score against us next time we play the Old Firm!
On a brighter not the £5M Training Centre is open, the best in Scotland and one of the best in the UK, and the new East Stand will be up for the start of next season bringing the capacity upto 20,000 and completing the redevelopment. all good news for the future but we need to give fans something now and at least we have the memories of that amazing Cup win in May but wont wait another 19 years to repeat the experience!
