  1. A great early photo of the La Scala just after it has been refurbished (if I'm right from the info on the poster). The film that everyone is queuing for is "Show Boat" from 1936 so just pre-war. Just next door was Marks & Sparks and again the influence of the times (probably 1930's) is evident in the architecture.
  2. I've said it in the past, it pays to look up sometimes at Paisley's great buildings.................... albeit, you may well be focussed on what the inside has to offer as an alternative! It was erected around 1901 and the Arts & Crafts influence is obvious on the upper parts of the building as well as the great pub on the GF.
  3. Dire ground conditions, but to be fair to both sides neither seemed overly bothered by it! It certainly showed why we should have underground electric blankets!
  4. I see it was 9 a side in these days............😜
  5. I remember Ian as being a good full back. I think he also played golf down at Erskine and may well have played for their club team, certainly I remember bumping into him on the golf course at some point!
  6. Returning to a previous post here is a link to a good YouTube video put together for Renfrew Airport: Over and above this are three really good photos of the old terminal building. I like good architecture and this was stylish and made a statement. Pity is had to go for a Tesco supermarket!
  7. ................ and we honestly all thought we were stylish and attractive to the burds dressed like this 😜
  8. There is no doubt that both Saints and others see the potential he has and he will soon become the centre of interest from a much wider field. Watching him on Saturday showed that he is not afraid to tackle, has a lot of talent and enthusiasm. Saints are a good team for him to learn as he would get lost in an Old Firm environment, can you image either of them fielding a graduate 16 year old in the first team? It will be interesting to watch him develop over the next year or two.
  9. It's an interesting post detailing Matt Miller's debut............................😞 However maybe I was slightly remiss in commenting on Ryan Flynn's re-signing in the wrong section, but some seem to have taken that diversification to extremes. So Finally, welcome Matt, hope you enjoy the banter that we supposed supporters dish out to the team and the management 😜
  10. You can now add into this mix the ruling by the SNP / Green alliance that you now have to provide a 2 jab certificate to gain entry. .................... I wait with bated breath to see how that is going to pan out with our relative attendances and staff input.
  11. Extending RF's contract was a bit of a no-brainer. JG obviously appreciates certain qualities he brings to the Club, and whilst he may not be the 1st choice on the team sheet he is better by far comparing him with some player he hasn't got and would have to find. He adds a layer of quality that would probably be hard to find, and easier to re-new that contract than trying to replace him. Perhaps "better with the devil you know............." 😈
  12. As I have posted elsewhere on this player: Hopefully he lives up to the comments made by JG and he does bring some width, speed and crossing abilities to the team as they are badly needed from what I have seen so far this year.. Welcome to Saints and if you just want to see what playing for Saints might do for you just have a wee peek at the current Scottish team and squad and see how many players (never mind the manager) have had a direct involvement with the club and also see that we can also sign players that gain a new cap for their country by playing well for us. Welcome to Paisley from the far-flung shores of Oz.

  14. That looks bloody good compared to the last 25 years, and I will give πŸ‘ to the Council for once for coming up with the money and the proposal to refurbish it. (of course nothing to do with the finance convenor skipping across it daily to go and see her granny😜 back in the day!). On a separate entry Schull suggested he was going head down there with his fishing rod, what would you expect to catch down there fairly close to the estuarial waters Schull? I know there is the odd salmon passing through, but what else might you get down there?
  15. I think this is the pedestrian bridge that crossed the Cart as you made your way to Love St. off Abercorn St. It was handy to walk down through there either from the bus stop at the cross or finding somewhere to park the car when there was a reasonable crowd at the ground.
