Was just washing the dishes in my flat looking out of my ground floor kitchen window when Falkirk manager Eddie May, dressed in Falkirk FC suit and tie walks passed my window! A bit surprising! I live in a development with no thru road therefore I assume our friend Eddie May lives round the corner from me!

poor Eddie...he's really suffering from the credit crunch there.

Imagine having to walk to all your home games.

I do indeed. Falkirk can't be paying him much if he lives around here! Maybe he is still on his youth team coach salary?!

Yeah it's the height of depravation there. I heard they based Shameless on Fettes Village. :greengrin

It must be a nightmare tripping over those Chablis bottles in the morning though. And some of those people have their families before they are 35!

Our very own John Hughes lived for years about a 30 second walk from my old house in Leith.

I served him chewing gum once :greengrin

Looking at today's Scotsman interview are you sure he wasn't nicking it? :greengrin

"Once you've met Pedantic, you hud oan to any memento ye can from him....and that bit ay chuggy will remain in my mooth until I'm no longer here, or until he gies me another one"

As for nicking the chewing gum, if Yogi walked into your shop and told you he was taking chewing gum and walking out with it, would you tackle him? If you did you would end up in the crisps shelf with a cucumber up yer back door :boo hoo:

Derek Riordan blanked my missus when she served him this morning. She's only known him since he was three.

I don't give a monkeys, he scored today.

Both Craig Levein and Robert Douglas use the same coffee house as my Mrs and I.

Levein actually sat at our table last week and spoke to us for the best part of half an hour - the conversation started with "you're not a Hibby, are you?!?" as I had my away top on at the time - was a good laugh actually! :thumbsup:

I edited that almost instantly (continuing the coffee content :wink:), yet it took you a full 5 minutes to formulate a reply!

You must type slower than orogeny!

He blanked Yogi when he subbed him today as well. He is maybe on a bit of a downer today. Tell the wife not to be too harsh on him.

Nothing whatsoever against Glasgow, but I'm surprised that Hughes lives so far away from his job. Maybe the market's still a bit iffy for moving house. Thereagain, maybe I'm a bit parrochial for assuming that he would want to live in Edinburgh. :greengrin

You're not wrong QM, he's a proper gentleman, one of the good guys.

Outwith the realm of an Edinburgh Derby I've never had a problem with Levein. And - some may say I'm taking it too far - Jim Jeffries too. Probably one of the most straightforward, honest managers in Scottish football. No taking the piss ala Strachan.

Moving back to the topic in hand, I live very close to the ground and I used to have Torben Joneleit as a neighbour. Invited him round for Dundee United v Kilmarnock on Setanta one Monday night (we were playing one or the other the following Saturday) and I knew he was living on his tod at the time but he didn't show.

Daniel Galbraith lives nearby now, as did Dermot McCaffrey last year. Zarabi was here too, and when there was the big fire last year we had Benji's mum living downstairs!

Eight minutes from the training ground according to yesterday's Scotsman interview, so you could be right.
