  1. 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 !
  2. 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˜‡
  3. We can take their opinions with a pinch of salt , they think Shaun Rooney is a superstar ! ☺️
  4. 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 ! 😍
  5. 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˜„
  6. There's a tweet from a fairly reliable poster saying that only three of the players who started v Hibs are available !
  7. Sure I read Kennedy's out injured long-term !
  8. 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.
  9. 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 .
  10. 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 !
  11. Big few weeks ahead , with the club in turmoil both on and off the park.
  12. 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 !
  13. Over 500 career appearances , he must have found his level at Burnley , Fulham and Preston ?
  14. Another player who we didn't use properly. Had a great career down south !
  15. TBF Miller had every right to drop Thomson , he lost that deflected McStay goal v Celtic in the Cup semi , but he really should have saved it , and then a few days later , at home to Celtic , he had a shocker . He never played for us again after that !
  16. I had plenty of time for Bertie , particularly in later life , but as a player he really was a dirty wee b****r. He broke two opponents legs (Provan , Fraser) with over the ball tackles , the Fraser one in particular provided a harrowing set of pictures , with Fraser biting into one of his team-mates shin pads because of the pain. I think he was the first "foreigner" to be sent off in the Bernabeu too , he was a nasty piece of work. When it came to management he tried to go toe to toe with Fergie in the angry and controversial stakes in a Saints v Thistle rivalry , but in the end , Fergie won hands down. As I said earlier , he became a talisman for Celtic in his later life and can be commended for that , but some of us have long memories !
  17. Tulloch's is in Neilston Rd nowadays , but that looks further down , nearer the Tea Gardens!

    Russia is attending , their private govt aircraft are parked at Edinburgh !
  19. That beautiful Caledonia End terracing in the background , just at the top of the slope. Exactly where I was when Peter Kane rifled home an early half-volleyed winner past Hearts' Jim Cruickshank , I could greet πŸ˜ͺ !
  20. He started all the games in our unbeaten run , not saying he's a superstar , but he brings pace , strength and balance to the right side , he should have started today , as should Kiltie , with Main and McAllister on the bench !
  21. He's been banging on about getting pace in the team since early season , yet Millar and Dunne remained on the bench for 90 mins. Curtis Main can be effective at times , but he was a waste of a jersey today .With what we had available we could and should have reverted to the formation that won 3 in a row !
  22. They want it more than we do , it would seem !
