    if a hundred hundreds is a million, then a million million is a billion... lets ask Dr Evil. lol
    That sounds perfect to me. said on a few occasions that since France 98, I've had a soft spot for the place. never been, but nostalgia as a mid teen gives me a feeling on connecting. Can't explain it. You have English Telly down there?

    I have SAFSEE for our games and Sky through the internet so that's enough.

    I've just found I get games through Amazon Prime as well which is handy.

    That's all he can do.

    Some people just like to have a twist and moan.

    Chris is one of the most helpful people you'll ever meet.

    Or, in my experience a while back, calls to his office, calls to his mobile, letters to his office, or messages left.

    What sort of striker is he? I don't watch any Scottish football.

    Whilst I don't think we'll be able to get him, if the interest is genuine, I'd be intrigued to know what sort of attributes we're targeting for up top. Hopefully a bit of mobility and movement.

    Our new striker or strikers are going to start with a huge weight on their shoulders so they will need to hit the ground running hope to god he chooses well.

    I only caught about half an hour of it but he looked mobile, covered a lot of ground dropping deep and going out wide, passing and awareness looked good and he took his goal well on his weaker foot.

    Quite a big lad too and 23 years old.

    I think we are after him because he said himself he's flattered by the interest.

    Confirmed in the echo this morning that we have made contact with Hibs and as you say he said he was flattered by the interest. We'll soon see.

    I wonder if Nisbet is a forward that we were after in the summer, when Parkinson went for Graham and O'Brien instead.

    He just moved to Hibs in the summer, didn't he?

    You do realise that if you do work while you company are claiming furlough for you, the company (SAFC in this case) will be prosecuted. The Government have already set up a department to look at this once the furlough scheme ends.

    Because he cant answer them when on furlough! You arent allowed to do any work when furloughed, including taking callls or answering emails

    The terms of his furlough means he cannot do any work whilst furloughed. Its against the law for him to do so and could put his job at risk.

    Also why should he answer emails outside of his posted job hours? Would you do that if you were in his position? I NEVER answer emails outside of my work hours as I'm not getting paid so why should anyone else???

    The club has gave the fans plenty of reasons to be critical over the past few years.

    IMO, Chris Waters isn't one of them.

    It seems a lot of people have written this season off with 27 games left to be played! Only 12 points off the top spot and 3 off a playoff place it's ripe for the picking in my opinion. If we manage to bring in some quality during this window I can't see why we can't put together a good run and at least get second! Or I'm I delusional?

    Lots of ignorant people confuse furlough with working from home, and it's 2 completely different things, with laws to comply with.
