Only 6 years old ? I was at that game and the early/mid-80s would have been my guess.

The most memorable aspect for me was that Jackie MacNamara (senior) was red carded before half time and the St Mirren DJ managed to play a recording of the song "MacNamara's Band" (obviously MacNamara's Banned) in time for the half time entertainment.

 

 

I remember that, though as a child didnt really understand the joke.

Back on topic, Rosario sounds like a crack South American outfit, so in my mind I have envisaged us winning 1-0 in front of 80,000 partizan fans somewhere in Argentina, rather than against a bunch of amateurs in a Belfast public park.

Sitting in Coleraine train station feeling much better than I should after yesterday. We went to the Coleraine FC open day and their chairman sought us out to thank us for coming and spent a good half hour chatting to us in the bar. He was an absolute gentleman.

We then took in the Port Stewart v New Buildings game and they looked after us. Their chairman was superb. We had a lot of drink before during and after the game. They got us a couple of taxis to get us back to our hotels and when we tried to pay we were told the chairman had prepaid them.

It seems Irish chairman look after the fans.

There's a strange concept.

No but we met his brother and sister and a few of his mates. Everyone was superb and they took care of us.

As far as gossip is concerned let's just say commuting wasn't the issue.

Perhaps you should enlighten us further. I'm sure they didn't make you sign a non disclosure agreement.
