    This "point scoring" about tunnels, etc is really quite sickening. There were several factors that contributed to this disaster, both human and design. The real disgusting issue, for me, is what happened after. The quite unbelievable attempts to cover issues up, when in the circumstances lots of people made errors, probably quite understandable. What possessed The Sun to print headlines that at worse, poured oil on an already volatile situation. The time to get to the decision given a few days ago is shocking and will forever be a dark event for this country. A tragedy that has, somehow, been made worse by the actions of many, many people, that's a real tragedy.

    Hillsborough - A Suggestion

    What their fans do is irrelevant Would be a nice touch to show our respect to Liverpool by playing their anthem. I'm guessing a few clubs will pay tribute this weekend, we're a good club and we should be one of them

    As the media starts to smell blood I have a worrying suspicion that what began as a noble quest for truth and justice will disintegrate into an unseemly clamour for revenge and retribution which will ultimately not serve to pay tribute to those who were tragically killed.

    Hillsborough Disaster Verdict

    The police chiefs were lying to those who they could influence about the disaster as it was taking place right in front of them while some people were actually still fighting for their lives. IIRC FA Chief Kelly and the BBC were told around 330pm that the gates had been forced. The Sun was fed similar information and did their typical brash reporting around these lies. It has always been a disgusting excuse for journalism and every football supporter should boycot it regardless of what offers of free TOFFS fitba shirts they may advertise. Instead of lying to cover their own arses the police chiefs should have been declaring a major incident and leading their officers in trying to help more people. IIRC there were around 41 people who with the right assistance and medical help could possibly have been saved. How could Duckenfield lie for so many years about what actually happened and not face criminal conviction? How could so many police witness statements be doctored to suit the police chiefs agenda and those responsible not face criminal prosecution? Those families have gone through hell for so long. They will never forget and I reckon most will never forgive the police and emergency services for what happened that day and in the immediate aftermath when so many innocent lives were lost. The lies and cover up which lasted for decades and involved so many has got to be one of the most shameful episodes in recent memory.

    Not arsed if we do or we don't. Celtic gave us a guard of honour after we won the League Cup which I thought was pretty decent of them at the time and totally un-necessary. In sport you should always respect your opponent and treat them as you would want to be treated yourself. If the players want to acknowledge their fellow professionals in this way then personally I couldn't care less. I'm sure it's not the Rangers players any of us have a problem with.

    Dickson is the Donald Trump of Lanarkshire. He makes up anything old shite to support his pish when usually a little investigation disproves his 'evidence'. Why anyone on this site takes him seriously or even interacts with him is beyond me. Lies and deceit abound which I usually ignore as life is too short to get involved with his egotistical ramblings but in this case he has gone beyond the bounds of decency. If everyone ignores him hopefully he will go away.

    Thanks, I got the message and also an e-mail which I'll reply to tonight. Like a lot of people job security isn't something I can take for granted just now so I'd like to know that whatever happens I'd have at least paid the minimum amount to support this bid. I'm also considering adding more to the up front payment and one or two other things which I can currently afford so I'll reply to the e-mail after I get home from work.

    I only use one Alias presently. We may find it out in the future that he is a mischief making troll but until then he and all others seeking information on this very important subject, must be given respect. Or others looking in will be driven away. So simple.

    I spoke to a Saints fan last night and asked him if he had signed up. He didn't know anything at all about it. He does now and he told me he'd sign up when he got home last night. I guess when you spend a lot of your time online you forget that there are hundreds, or thousands of fellow Saints fans who don't.

    Just a wee correction to that. Your account (though not bank account) for payment and Direct debit guarantee is with GC and not with SMISA, but this is a good thing, you pay GC and they pay SMISA, but GC guarantee your money. ...again this is a good thing

    No, becoming a member of SMISA does not make you a shareholder in the Club or give you the right to attend the AGM of the CLUB. You become a Shareholder (1 share) of SMISA and get to attend their AGM, which as they will own a load of shares and should therefore position their AGM immediately before the CLUB AGM you will be able to influence via the rules of SMISA how the SMISA owned shares will be voted on at the CLUB agm. Their shares will be voted on a block basis. EG. if a vote of SMISA members on a certain issue is a 60;40 split of something that will occur at the Club AGM. then 100% of the SMISA votes will vote for whatever the 60% won the vote on at the SMISA agm, not a 60/40 split...if you follow

    A nice idea but won't happen. We had quite a long time to prepare for the League Cup final, most will remember how our attempt to organise holding up cards went on that occasion.

    Just to be clear. Many on duty officers did tell the truth in their witness statements. The doctoring and cover up was performed at a higher level.

    They suffered 27 years due to our corrupt Police and Courts. Yes football should make a stand, and we play our part in that. I could not care what Sevco do or don't do

    I've seen you post a few times in the last few days along these lines and feel compelled to pick you up on this revisionist nonsense you're spouting. Gilmour and the BoD did run with this line but contrary to the line of history you wish to peddle, it WASNT met by universal acceptance by St. Mirren fans. It was met with dissension and debate by many which in turn was met by a scoffing 'we know better' attitude by the members of the board who we're sitting in the main stand that night spouting a load of shite. I said on here at the time it was shite, I maintain it was shite and I sure as f**k wasn't alone in that viewpoint. The very fact is that when it came to the crunch, despite their opposition, the board decided to accept the majority of the fans opinions and vote to exclude Rangers from the SPL. For me it was definitely passing the buck to the SFL by the SPL as a whole and not St. Mirren FC in particular. At that point in time there was no single governing body. By the time the SPL voted them out, the decision on their future was completely out of our hands. To implicate St. Mirren and their fans as the reason Rangers are still in existence is convoluted to be polite and an absolute load of slavering bullshit to be blunt.
