Saints league position on the day you were born.

Second place in Division One having scored less than half the league :lol:

We eventually finished 4th as Raith Rovers comfortably won the league ahead of Kilmarnock. Cowdenbeath only managed 13pts from their 44 games with a record of 3-7-34.

We made a horrific start to that campaign. 

Raith Rovers were worthy winners.

You'll remember the famous Chelsea vs Leeds FA Cup Final replay from the early 70s - it was analysed on TV a couple of years back and by current standards there'd have been 5 red cards and only one player would not have been booked! :lol:

That was the 1st football match I seen on TV in colour. :lol:

I was watching big match revisited t'other night , some of the tackles that went unpunished were unbelievable , its only  when you watch those games from 30 odd years ago that you realise that it was much more enjoyable to be a football fan back then !

A little story from these days.  I used to play in the NALGO summer league.  We played midweek on the pitches on Inchinnan Rd, opposite the old Flying Club.  The standard was pretty good, we had a few ex-pros and a couple of guys who had played for Scottish Schools at various levels.  One night we played Paisley Burgh who had a couple of guys who played Junior and we expected a tough match.  At ko I thought I recognised their left back but I couldn't think from where.  We were two nil up after about 20 minutes and I think there had been a few bookings in the first 15 mins or so but we were well on top thaks to our guy in central midfield who had captained Scotland at U18 level and was better than the ex-pros.  Enter their left back who had been urging his team mates to get on top of our guy and keep him quiet.  He decided to take into his own hands and went for him with a lunge the nearly broke his leg just above the knee.  The little light went on in my head and I knew who he was - Sandy Clelland who was working for the Burgh during the summer break - laying tar I think.  Off he went and he was suspended for the rest of the tournament.  We had pukka refs so I guess ghe probably gave a false name or he would have been in bigger trouble.  Sorry, a little longer story than I thought

I remember that game well. However, a challenge this week in Scotland would have been worthy of inclusion in that game - the Ross County assault on Scott Brown’s haw-maws. Clearly, I am no Broony lover, but boy, that was outrageous. I watched it online, FFS just about covers it. :wacko:

February 1954. We were 11th out of 16. Played 23 with 23 points - same as 3 other teams but we had the lowest goal average. Won 10 lost, lost 10, drawn .... well work it out. Hearts were 7 points clear on 34 points at the top, Celtic were second, Rangers were 7th on 24 points. Queen of the South was 4th! :o

We finished 12th on 29 points.

This was the last season that QotS played in the top division.

Why does Airdrieonians have 1878-2002 after it, but Rangers doesn’t have 1873-2012?
