    My aunt dug into our background a while ago and surprised us all, seems centuries ago we were french, name of Joyeux, and came over to fight the welsh!
    Then moved north.

    None too chuffed about my frog roots but in light of our new owner I'm choosing (and inventing) to believe the Joyeuxes come from Marseille!

    Hang in there mate.
    Tough times for everyone at the minute but hopefully it will turn soon.
    You’ve got mates on here as well remember.

    Aye P, she should be right in a few days or so, but keep it to yourself if you can!
    Mrs rowley had it and was pretty bad, including a visit to hospital, though they ended up saying it was " mild". It will pass though, hopefully she is up and elbowing you out the way of the chores, which is the stage I'm at now. We'll be older than yous as well so you'll be fine.
    I've had it and no symptoms at all, so how that works I've no bloody idea but it's not to be under estimated.
    Keep on keeping on mate.

    It's the 24th Jan and we are still not any clearer on why this takeover is taking so long? Have we had any snippets @Magnus @Prehab26 @Wearsider. If we dont sign some creativity this window we are back to square league 1 imo

    I've got some ghost chilli sausages to try out, maybe today, there's ten in a pack, I'll try three one for each point yesterday. It's been nice knowing you all.

    Crazy isn't it, the things you can find out after a good few pints on a Saturday! I've looked into my one a bit more, don't think the Moffat clan were particularly good. No mention of any rivalry with the Scott's, but it seems we were very much foe to the Johnstones. Then they murdered pretty much every notable Moffat by burning a building down and we lost all our land to them and ended up in debt. Bloody useless! So I'll be a bit distrusting of any Johnstones I meet from here on out!

    Takeover will happen. Not sure what people's obsession is with the Jan window. Takeover makes zero difference to it. Salary cap is reached. That's why the club are trying to get players out.

    The new owner has deep pockets but that will help with the restructuring of the club to ensure we have the right environment for younger players to move into the first team. We can not buy our way out of the league in the Jan window.

    Heard about any likelihood of losing Grigg, Graham and any others ? I know you’ve been playing Daddy Prehab so you may know more about chicken dinosaurs right now.

    There is a beautiful little town called Moffat about 15 miles north of Lockerbie, probably your ancestral seat. It's worth a visit if you are ever up that way.

    100%.

    In addition we have lived too long making short term signings. Most signings to plug current gaps in January are short term. From my perspective we should only really be looking for loans now unless there are players that clearly both fill gaps and fit the long term plan. But those players are almost impossible to find in January.
