 Thanks. Did plan to start my own forum when SWF became so bile ridden, glad someone did it for me!

 That's basically committing himself to us for the rest of his career.    Excellent news.   He deserves it and will probably go down as bargain acquisition of this Saints era.   500k, and we didn't even have to give New Rangers PLC that.    We did it out of goodwill.   We've done very well out of Steven.   Hopefully Rangers will remember us not shitting on them if we ever go in for their players.

To leave Steven some praise in his local vernacular:-

Good man, one hundred percent, dead on.

It all applies.  He's even finding the net these days.

He's the boy.

It's all very well bringing on these flare players but the club only survives the annual meltdown due to the likes of Davis who gives the team a spine, and continuity.

Nice one.

Amazing how these things happen during tournaments. So much gets put on hold, but a day after the biggest result in his and Northern Ireland's history, he signs for the mighty Saints. Someone who is grateful to the club for helping him achieve what he has at international level?

hmmm, not sure we can take much credit for Steven Davis' international success. He's been a top flight player for a long time and played for some big clubs.

 Yeah, but he has got to be happy (on cloud nine) about how things are going at this moment in time!

Yeah, not everyone gets to play for Aston Villa.

 That's the kind of man he is. lou_lol

It's actually been done for a few days. Just delayed the announcement until after his big game.

 

Anyway, finally time to start actually using this twitter thing I've had set up since February, now I've finally got something to say that anyone actually wants to listen to. lou_wink2

 Lol. Obviously not. How do you embed tweets here? lou_facepalm2

 

Anyway, they say:

I understand will be one more soonish - and another two are in the works, but a bit further down the pipeline.

^ ^ ^ That was serious post by the way. Can someone [how about you Bletch!, you seem to be able to do this yourself just fine] please let me know how to successfully embed tweets here?

I click the three dots on twitter -- chose embed tweet, copy the code, and paste it in here.

Then proceed to look like a techological dinosaur. Accurate, but annoying all the same. lou_wink

 that code looks like straight html to me. usually not enabled within forum posts.

bbcode is the only thing i've seen used successfully, but i'm unfamiliar with this forum software

 

edit: i'm somewhat impressed that the code all displayed.

If Optimus Trousers has found the Tweet then it's easy to embed. Just quote Him and then copy and paste the text.

If however, you want to copy a tweet then I've not found a good way to do this.

The only way I do it is to capture the screen of the tweet, upload it to imgur.com and link it here.

Sorry, Jack.

Didn't know about the 3 dots (ellipsis) thing however if you edit your original post then, for some reason, the HTML will get resolved and your tweet will be embedded.

i.e. this is before editing
