    Great watch...…………………. (if you liked trams that is!).
     
    1.       I remember that it was never a good idea to get your bike tyres stuck in the tram lines - you always fell off
    2.      When you got to your destination the driver / conductor always came through the gf and 1st floor and altered the backs of the seats so that you faced in the direction of travel.
    3.      What happened when there was thick snow on the ground, did they not run?
    4       What happened in the pea-soupers did they just crawl along at 2 mph?

    The Original 59er got a reaction from St.Ricky in Scotland Football Club ( deceased )   
    I watched the England Vs Kosovo game last night in its entirety and it was a great open game of football to enjoy.
    It got me thinking why can a country (so relatively new to international football as an individual country), can be so technically ahead of Scotland. In just about every department they were ahead in actual ball skills, closing down the opposition, chasing everything and organisational set-up.
    At one point Hoddle said that it would be a joy to play with this team, and then later it was said that when they don't have the ball they look quiet or even tired, but the moment the won the ball back they became alive and inventive. 
    Forget the idiots in the studio who said at half time that England had many more goals in them, it was a really inventive Kosovo, who made their 'star' hosts look like a team that just turned up for the second half and thought they had done all the hard work after 45 minutes. It was great.
    So why can Scotland not produce a performance like that...…………….
     
    P.S.  Not many of the Kosovo team play for well known teams!

    I am beginning to wonder if I am missing something here.
    I prefer women who don't cake themselves in fake bake tan, don't have breast implants, don't have lip fillers, don't cake themselves in make up, don't feel the need to wax everything so that their genetalia resembles that of a small child and are not absolutely obsessed over how they look.
    Where are all the real women who are comfortable in their own skin an just get on with more interesting things in life?

    I think with Sunday being the first "proper" home game of the season it would be fitting for us all to remember Fiona McCaskill who passed away in the summer, aged just 35.
    One of our own, and a big personality at games who was always heard!
    So, as the clock ticks over into the 35th minute can I ask anyone who is willing to stand and applaud (and maybe even the odd Whoop!) for a minute to remember her?
    League rules mean the club isn't allowed to promote this so we need to do it among ourselves to ensure the offline and online supporters know it's happening.
    Appreciate if you could help spread the word to your fellow buds if you agree this would be a fitting way to remember Fiona.

    The Original 59er reacted to athens-saint in Welcome Greg Tansey   
    Less than two months into his time in Paisley, the osteomyelitis had returned and he was struggling to walk again. Because his condition was pre-existing, St Mirren were under no obligation to pay for the required surgery. They didn’t, leaving Tansey to foot the bill himself.
    Since that second operation in May, Tansey did not train with the team. He did not meet Jim Goodwin, who took over as manager in the summer. His time has been spent conducting a pre-season of his own at home in Liverpool, readying himself for his next opportunity.
    “St Mirren didn’t need me back and told me to follow what the surgeon told me. I’ve got no ill will towards St Mirren. I understand they need to cut their cloth accordingly; it’s just unfortunate the way it happened. But it made my position untenable.
    “There were rumours going round about me fighting with lads in the changing room, which was wrong. You couldn’t ask for a nicer group of lads – they welcomed me from day one.
    “After the way it went on I just didn’t feel right carrying on. I would rather not be wasting their time and money as I wasn’t 100 per cent into it. I’m not a mercenary; I don’t want to be sitting about picking up a wage for the next 12 months.”
    A severance was finally reached last weekend. The opening Saturday of the season and Tansey was without a club, watching the start of the new campaign from afar.

    If, and I do say if, there is any truth in the content of this post, I do fear for our Club this year.
    We have played 4 competitive matches, all against lower or non-league opposition and the results speak for themselves. 1 lost (2-3), 2 drawn (0-0) and 1 win (1-0). I will quite accept that we have only conceded 3 goals, but on the other hand we've only scored three. Good God, Morton even went on their travels and scored 5 against lower league opposition.
    The team we are fielding at the present moment will not survive in this year's Premier League and importing more 2nd grade, cheap, so-called footballers to make up the numbers will not cover over the cracks.
    Even with our turmoil, I fear the worst, if indeed the above rumour has any basis of truth!

    The Original 59er got a reaction from turrabuddie in EKFC v SMFC LC 20/7/19   
    I will accept it is a mute point, but the simple fact of the matter is that St Mirren FC failed to beat a non-league 5th-tier football club and we are arguing over a simple arithmetical anomaly that the wonderful SFA have dreamt up.
    I'm not saying that we can't occasionally deliver up a below-average performance, but in general terms I don't think, Aberdeen, Hearts, Hibs or the terrible twins would have stumbled at EK. We are a full-time professional team and we should, 99 times out of a hundred, beat a 5th tier team!  (Maybe this was the 1%, but that 1% is happening too often).
    We stumbled across the line last season with not very much to spare, and since that time we have weakened the squad by a significant amount. I get the firm impression that players are just not interested in coming to Paisley as; (a) we are very unstable as a Club, (b) they probably think are hardly likely to raise their profile and (c) we don't offer enough money to make them commit.
    My suspicions are that as we get nearer to the deadline date we will see another raft of loaners and maybe one or two new signings after the deadline with players who have failed to find a home. Same old, same old, I'm afraid and from what I've seen so far this season, a MAJOR overhaul is required!!! 😣

    Actually 1,000 Euros a week is roughly £47,000 per annum so it would have been in our budget, (if your average salary figures are correct).
