  1. I agree. The initial statement said the shirts/memorabilia were missing or stolen , which would indicate that no-one knows what really happened ?
  2. Birkenhead are one of the clubs that we formed a strategic partnership with last year , I think this "trial" is just a nod to them to say we're keeping an eye on things !
  3. Sigh ! "Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth said after the game: "Ross Stewart is a hell of a player and he will go onto huge, huge things in his career and today was a huge learning curve for my defenders."
  4. ......... and Jimmy Bone who is in the Hall of Fame of at least three clubs !
  5. I can't see him staying with us , they'll be moves afoot to land us with some of their deadwood !
  6. I believe we are trying to get the best deal we can for McGrath , and we are also looking to offload another three , either loan or permanent. Don't think they'll be any in until there's movement out !
  7. I'm sure I read somewhere that the SPFL has been advised that a return to normality is likely to be in place before this game !
  8. It really does beg the question about Stubbs and the running of the club at that time , doesn't it. How could he/we let a boy like that go , and fill the club up with unwanted dross , and be allowed to do so ?
  9. They had a decent result v Raith , and have made what looks like a decent managerial appointment , so appears to be a whole new ball game since the draw was made !
  10. We went to the wee shop near the old bus stop on the other side of the road and bought 10 No6 for 15p. Then we went to the wee post office which is now "Billy's" . I was "acquainted" with a girl who worked there and we just lifted about Β£2 worth of goodies and she would charge me 5p or less . πŸ˜‡
  11. We can take their opinions with a pinch of salt , they think Shaun Rooney is a superstar ! ☺️
  12. First Saints match , I wasn't supporting the Buds , vague memories of a game v my Dad's works team , India of Inchinnan , in the Renfrewshire Cup. The programme history says game was at LS , but it was played at the Tyres Sports Ground. 6-2 for the Saints , and at least I can claim I saw Beck , Clunie , Gray , Wilson and (Red) Campbell in a Saints jersey , and Peter Holding in a Tyres jersey ! 😍
  13. Talking about Fergie chasing the linesman , first time I saw it happening was at Palmerston season 74/75 , we had started to put a run together to try and make the top six in Div 2 pre reconstruction and we were winning 1-0 , John Young headed clear from a John Dempster cross and the linesman signalled hands , which it wasn't , and thankfully the ref waved play on. Fergie came storming out the dugout , he was wearing a long coat and the physio (not Ricky) was trying to hold him , his coat came off and was lying on the track and his head was like a beetroot , shouting in the linesman's face ! An absolute nutter ! πŸ˜„
  14. There's a tweet from a fairly reliable poster saying that only three of the players who started v Hibs are available !
  15. Sure I read Kennedy's out injured long-term !
  16. This must have been planned for a while , they probably already know who'll be coming in as manager. If Jacko had won them the cup then they would have got pelters for bagging him later in the season.
  17. We let him go , he's going down for a second trial stint at QPR having had a successful one already , looks like one that got away .
  18. It might not all be down to JG , because if we don't make Cammy an offer of a new deal , we lose any development fee !
  19. Big few weeks ahead , with the club in turmoil both on and off the park.
  20. The statement tonight from Smisa regarding Alec White mentions he will join Messrs Needham , Scott and Wardrop , as Smisa's reps on the BOD. I think we can take it from that , that if JN gets his knuckles rapped for his comments, then Smisa , the major shareholder , will stand by him , which , IMO , is the way it should be !
  21. Over 500 career appearances , he must have found his level at Burnley , Fulham and Preston ?
