    So Farewell Then A Partick Thistle Legend

    How many of that St.Mirren team would make it into today's side? Most of them?

    Stating The Obvious Thread

    A lot of St.Mirren fans don't want England to win the world cup.

    4 told they can leave

    I reckon it is a good post too, Wendy. No idea if you have been here before or not but Shull has a nose for that kind of thing. But a word to the wise in case you haven't been here before. Stop talking so much common sense. A lot of folk on here don't like to hear it.

    8 - 0 Cathkin replay

    I was at this game too. Went on a special train from Gilmour Street to Queens Park (I think it was) and walked the rest of the way to Cathkin. What a night! Jocky Robertson was small for a keeper but he was good. Big Jolly scored four. He was a big lump of a guy and when he hit a ball hard by God it moved. We reckoned that with two of Rodger's goals Jocky was in a good position but the force of the shots carried him and the ball over the line. Not sure that was true but I like to think so. Tommy Bryceland was magnificent that night. He scored two and was involved in most of the other six. Last time this match was discussed, there was mention of had it been fixed. I'm not a betting man and I don't know if there was much football betting back then. But as I posted on here before I got to know Tommy reasonably well in the early 80's and he told me when these stories first raised their ugly head he didn't believe a word. But he told me one night that he now knew it was true. He didn't tell me how he knew but he seemed to be certain it was. I didn't like hearing it but I don't see why Tommy would have made it up.

    So Farewell then.................Clint Walker

    I'm an unashamed lover of western movies and the TV western series too. Clint Walker was Cheyenne Bodie in the TV western of that name and was a big favourite of mine back in the late 50's. We only got our first TV in 1957 and Cheyenne was in it's heyday then. A friend of mine over here in Bangor was named Clint after Clint Walker and most people always assumed he had been named after Clint Eastwood. Understandable, I suppose. My good friend died last month at 60 years of age. He was a great guy. Unfortunately, he was a victim of the Kincora scandal over here and it very badly affected his life. The government over here finally agreed to pay compensation to the victims but then the whole bastard lot of them went on strike and everything came to a halt. Clint could have had a ball during his last 18 months but he got zilch. Our MP's are still not talking. Clint was a fanatical Pink Floyd fan and at his Humanist funeral service the last song was Shine On You Crazy Diamond. There wasn't a dry eye in the house.

    After you stopped posting, the need for so many of us pointing out what an asshole you continually made of yourself disappeared. You do have something in common with LPM.

    Peace In Korea

    Hope you're right , Shull. The bits on telly looked encouraging.

    So Farewell Then Big Tom

    Suppose he was legendary in some places. I've lived in Ulster for 33 years this year, the same province Big Tom was born and died in, and I first heard his name on Tuesday when he died. In a social club I use a lot, only a few guys knew who he was. RIP anyway, Big Tom. By all accounts he was a good guy.

    The 3 Monthly Spend

    I think a few of your many posts on this topic are almost actionable. You should tread carefully. If I was Gordon Scott I would have been at least having a chat with my solicitor. In your previous incarnations over the years you always went on in the same vein. If the vote gets the go-ahead, will you accept the decision?

    Protect The Asset Lock

    I'm a SMiSA member and I have to admit that when I first read the proposal I instantly wondered what had happened to the ring-fencing guarantee. I think crossing from ring-fenced to give us a loan of £50k is a bit of a quantum leap. I didn't vote because essentially I trust SMiSA and the board of SMFC. I don't have a perpetual axe to grind unlike some others. Having said that I don't think the SMiSA response to the furore has been handled particularly well. Hubris springs to mind.

    £2 Pot SMISA vote for April ?????

    Tend to agree with you. We have at least one solicitor who posts on here and whilst I have no idea jf he is a SMiSA member, I would be interested to hear his take on this.

    Saint Mirren V Livingston 14 April

    Been trying to get through to the ticket office without success. Does anyone know if there sre still any tickets available for this match?
  13. Fair enough, Shull. Was forgetting there could be red numbers, but I wouldn't mind a wee bit red trim round the badge.
  14. Personally I like this strip but possibly with a wee bit of red in it somewhere. But I would much rather they wore white shorts. Never liked black shorts.
