  1. Bob Paterson not a bad goalkeeper. At that time there was another ref. who also wanted the names of the boys.😡
  2. Willie Young. My a blast from the past Ian Byars , he was a butcher. !!!
  3. Gies a break as soon as as posted I new it was Pend. Given myself slap on the wrist. There is a few more, what was Kyles Dairy, diagonally opposite Whitehaugh Drive and entrance to Abercorn Bowling Club from Greenlaw Avenue.
  4. Antrim, thanks for comments. The "shortcut" was called a Pen which cut the corner of Lady Lane/George Street. The entrance/exit in George Street beside the shop led to a entrance/exit in Lady Lane. The co-op may have owned a fair bit of the property in that area since in this pen there was the co-op Joiners workshop and other trades. The building next to the Regal was their Garage where they kept the funeral cars and at that time the Parlour was (I think) beside the shop but closer to Lady Lane. Yes good long term memory but can't remember the last time I saw a good St Mirren game.!!!!!!
  5. Only thing you missed out from Lady Lane was the "shortcut" to George Street. I remember waiting outside 26 for my Grandfather. One of the few days he couldn't be bothered walking to The Bluebird in Causeyside Street. Was it Tom Smith the Butcher or the Off License your Gran worked in? Only other shop I can remember was Alisatair's the Dairy but that was maybe 54. Three Bowling Clubs in photo. Just to add to another debate , the Chinese Restaurant across the road from the Red Buildings must be in with a shout for being one of the first to open in Paisley.
  6. Has been available/allowed to take up new employment since 1st November. Bring him on.
  7. What I find embarrassing is our club captain, even in that capacity, not finding a place on the bench but days later manages 30 minutes for his new club. I take all Goodwins rant with a pinch of salt.
  8. Can't understand.................. Magennis on Hibs substitute bench to-night, six days after Goodwin moaning about lack of players to fill his bench.
  9. Maybe something along the lines of thank God they never offered me the job.😊
  10. What do we have seven coaches for? and a Manager and assistant and ??? With this quantity there must be some quality but it didn't show very often last season.
  11. Great. Thanks for the memories.
  12. Oops, seems to have forgotten to mention the signing on fee, company car, free meals, win bonuses etc. Nothing like pulling the wool.
  13. The other issue in the report shows the caring side of footballers.🤩 Derek McInnes says he has made a Financial sacrifice to go to Aberdeen. Hayes says he is foregoing some financial benefits but I bet it won't be down at a living wage level. Get real the tic wanted rid of him. What planet are these guys on.
  14. Great photo. Spent Primary six and seven in these building. On the right hand side but just out of the picture there was a row of tenements, the name of the Brae evades me where George McLean stayed. He was at the time of his transfer along Paisley Road West the highest transfer fee between two Scottish clubs at £28,000.00.
  15. What a photo, Antrim are you sure it is Love Street. Trying to trace my steps when I crossed the footbridge from Abercorn Street to New Sneddon Street but it is all a bit near the top of the photo.
  16. Problem solved. Continue this season from 12th March 2021. Doesn't look like there is going to be any football before then.
  17. We are not fan owned at this moment so no reason to consult Smisa or season ticket holders. The Board of Directors are appointed to make decisions. Why the rush to get a decision since IMO there will be no football played for a long time. Ann Budge just want's to get her way while the "iron is hot".
  18. You forgot to mention that the total number of deaths is now 919.
  19. Food for thought, here are some facts about Sweden's neighbour Finland. Surveys conducted by Gallop confirms that Finland was voted the happiest country in the world in 2018 and 2019. More to the current situation. Finland has almost the same population as Scotland but four times our size. Total number of deaths 49. Let me repeat 49. In hospital 236. In Intensive Care 81 at 11th April 2020. The measures taken by the Government was to close the border of the district (county) which has the capital Helsinki on the 28th March. Within this district a third of the population live. All exits/entries are manned by the Police and Conscripts ( Bring this back here) and only essential travel out or in has been permitted. Tightened the land borders with Russia, Sweden and Norway until at least 13th May. It is now expected to re-open the district border which will again allow free movement on the 19th April.
  20. Remember them well. Did not believe they had the technology to tell which channel the television was tuned to. I received a visit from them in the 1970,s. Invited them into the flat to prove to them I didn't have a television.
