Saw a bunch of about 10-15 16 year olds when we were there on Saturday who seemed to presume that they were some sort of casual squad, but were wearing Rangers tops and trackies! Not very casual :lol: I just laughed, its amazing what pish, 'glamourous' films like Green Street can do to people's imagination.

Aye, this site shows some the past and present groups that people are aware of. It has Montrose, and also an 'Arbroath Soccer Society' although I've heard them called 'Arbroath Soccer Crew' aswell. I presume that Mo' and Arbroath casuals only come out of the woodwork when there is a derby between the two? People I talk to up there say there is considerable amount of scraps in the towns before and after the Angus derby. I'd say its easier to operate a smaller casual group in the lower divisions (Airdrie, Dundee Utility) where there are much less polis than in SPL.

Portland Bill SeasideSquad is pretty much defunct although if anyone knows differently I'd love to know. Angus derby matches now seem to be an excuse for Aberdeen and Dundee hooligans to meet halfway for a scrap. Arbroath and Mo fans then bear the blame for any trouble as was the case last saturday post match. <_<

The Mo mob were quite numerous in their heyday, and, believe it or not, gave the East Stirling bus driver a doing one day on his bus. Another of their big hard escapades was to attack kids who were at a BB camp while they were asleep in their tents. They made a bit of trouble one day when we were there until the police arrived to chase them off. I remember that there was an older guy with them, at least twice the age of anyone else. He just about summed it all up.

Before the game, they gave one of the wee boys supporting us a scribbled piece of paper (presumably their idea of a calling card) with Portland Bill Seaside Specials (was it Specials rather than Squad?) written on it. It also told us not to believe what people in Arbroath said about them! A bit comical. Naturally they tried to stone the bus from too far away.

To true my friend, I was once at Brechin v Mo and after the game a "casual " walked past us primary schoolkids waiting for the service bus back to Montrose and uttered the line "My troops" laugh I nearly peed myself.

As for the last bit, without wishing to condone acts of hooliganism, I somehow think a scribbled piece of paper would rank quite lowly in hooligan stakes.

True Simon, but lets just say I'm not a million miles from the truth when I mention Aberdeen and Dundee "fans" meeting in Montrose to conveniently coincide with a potentially explosive Div 3 fixture.

The point I'm making is that the PBSS as was in the mid eighties early nineties is defunct most of their members are married with kids etc.

What i'd like to know is the reason for the original posting of this thread from a Dunfermline fan.?

The PBSS was a fairly large casual group, probably numbering around 300 at it's peak in the 1985 chamionship season- Arbroath had similar numbers. Both sets of casuals are mentioned in a book i forget the name of, but was written by an ex Aberdeen casual.
Although some people belittle it nowadays i do remember quite serious incidents occurring - especially when casuals from other teams stopped off on the way back from away matches at Aberdeen.
The PBSS were originally known as the Montrose Soccer Unit and you can still see MSU sprayed at the Victoria Bridge gathering place.
Most of the members are nearing 40 now and you still see one or two of them at the games.
When Montrose played Dundee Utd in the Cup in 2000/2001 season i was in a Montrose pub after the match when United casuals attacked it - unfortunatley for the United neds there was a load of these ex- PBSS casuals in the pub having a drink.
As for OZMO's statement about the post match derby trouble last week, there is every possibility that the violence in the High St was in fact other teams supporters as i have met a few people who witnessed it but nobody who knows anyone involved.

Capslock is an inner-city estate in Glasgow, home of the famous Capslock United (formed by the amalgamation of Capslock Rovers and Capslock Thistle in 1973). Their biggest achievement was to win the 1982 HP Photoprint Trophy by defeating Numlock Wanderers 3-2 in the final, with the winning goal scored in time added on by their Armenian centre half Ctrlalt Delete. As the ball struck him on the head the whole game restarted with the fans wildly chanting "End Task Now". The manager, of course, was the Colombian S. P. Acebar.

There was about 7 neds who stood with us for the half time kick about at half time. They seemed harmless enough to me.

I spoke to a few Arbroath lads (who are in their 40's and were involved in early 80's thing)
seemingly a fight broke out in the market arms and spilled into the street.
Around 20 ppl were involved, none were from Montrose but Aberdeen/Arbroath.
This was no little ned set- to, but lads in their 40's having a blast from the past.
However i also heard that a few local saps starting throwing bottles at Arbroath fans heading to the railway station, but took to their heels when AFC turned and charged.
Is the 80's movement making a return :o

Division 3 needs more neds - retro or otherwise. We could stage halftime entertainment.

We need more pensioners, we need more capslockers and any other ocker around.

What we've got are wide open empty spaces and the silence. Is Div 3 it's like to be dead?

Supporting Arbroath = the best of all possible worlds. Gayfield Park = stairway to heaven. The team and fans = the worst in the league, apart from all the others. Everything is rosy in our garden

If you read my original post, you will see that I was asking if it were true, as it seemed like a sappy name for a "casual" element to one's support, especially for the 80's when the hooligan trend was kicking about full blast.

Thanks for the info though folks.

I think it was from a kids programme called Portland Bill - a sort of a Captain Pugwash derivative and they took their song from the theme tune. I can't remember all the words but the first line was;
"Will you come with me to the rollin' sea!" :huh:

Anyone know the rest?

It all sounds about as random as 'Akabusi Loyal' in honesty. I certainly didn't expect the name to have been stolen from a children's television cartoon.
