    Highest Floodlights in Scotland

    I was really impressed with the commentary last night. Not a second waisted, every potential silence filled with a word or two. It was so interesting to hear about QOTS having the highest floodlights in the country (camera focused on them to help us make up our own minds.)

    When the stadium was done up did Hibs not miss a trick in adding height to the old ones rather than building them into the stands? May have brought extra revenue with pylon enthusiasts or interested tourists. Something to rival the countryís longest glass curtain for sure. Maybe something KP could follow up on?

    I can't believe Hearts haven't got the highest floodlights in the world, maybe they've got the biggest by square metre of metal used or the brightest bulb in the world when compared to the sun?

    Maybe one of our undercover thieves could rise to this particular challenge?

    Maybe they do except just like the team they go down a long way before they go up?

    Crap, never realised, now I'm going to have to spend the whole day burying my lightbulbs in the garden.

    Hopefully they'll grow.

    I have to say that I turned the match audio off after about 20 minutes as I was fed up with the mindless drivel assaulting my diminishing brain cells. I realise that commentating is not simple but when it is done by simple people then it becomes offensive. Surely, if they are the best then the older retired commentators should be used for home schooling them. I frequently sighed at the efforts of some of these older guys at the time but would have them back in a heartbeat (assuming they still had a heartbeat ).

    Queen of the South have the highest floodlights in Scotland

  9. #8
    I heard that our neighbours plan to make theirs the tallest for 2 reasons:

    1. Save their players' eyes when watching passes from the back coming down again, and;

    2. To put enclosed seats on for the 'Castle View 2' restaurant ("this time you can see it").

    Maybe where the stairs to nowhere will go. Brilliant forward planning by Mrs, Doctor, Queen Anne.

    Wish we had such a visionary at our club.

    Also they have the largest terracing in the country. Iím sure they sell chips but Iím unsure if it offers a castle view.

    Did someone mention chips?



    I personally was fed up listening to their inane gibberish about our 10 Scottish FA Cup finals and Hearts

    It was good to hear Liam MacLeod mention Hanlon, that goal, the replay and the historic Cup Win. I do hope plenty Jambos were listening in at that point.

    I thought the coverage was good. I enjoyed listening to big marv who's clearly still a big hibee and I thought everyone else was very complementary of us.

    I did laugh at the floodlight fact but they need to talk for a long time and of course they're going to talk some *****, I'm pretty sure that'll happen on football broadcasts across the world.

    Did he mean tallest physical structure or the highest above mean sea level? Typical BBC not giving you all of the information to suit their agenda...

    Maybe they do. But they are such a humble and quietly dignified club we would never know.

    They've got the brightest in the world, so when the opposition look up for the ball, they get blinded.

    I thought the Huns were the biggest whiners in the world after their club went bust in 2012 and they all complained they had been relegated to the 4th tier, but the Yambo nation outdid them with their self-obsessed whingeing during a global pandemic.

    Thereís nothing they canít be the biggest at if they put their mind to it.

    Biggest shock in the Scottish Cup? Already in the bag.

    Makes up for them having the dullest and dimmest fans in the world.
    Mature, sensible signature required for responsible position. Good prospects for the right candidate. Apply within.

    Fir Park and Rugby Park do IIRC.
    Logan, McGregor, Hanlon (Gunnarsson 83), Fontaine (Henderson 70), Gray, Fyvie, McGeouch, McGinn, Stevenson, Stokes, Cummings (Keatings 65)

    Firhill does I think. Rugby Park has mini pylon things like we used to have on top of the old East.

    Right enough, borderline whether those count or not.
    Logan, McGregor, Hanlon (Gunnarsson 83), Fontaine (Henderson 70), Gray, Fyvie, McGeouch, McGinn, Stevenson, Stokes, Cummings (Keatings 65)

    The ones at Tynie could be the bigliest, in terms of weight. There's a lot of metal there.
