  1. Arbroath well done.

    Well done, indeed. Thoroughly deserved. Give it a real go in the tier upstairs.
  2. Sons' sorrow

    Yeah.. the seethe factor alone is probably worth it. That makes a change. He usually couldn't cross a bridge.
  3. CHAMPIONSHIP Play Off Run in

    That means you'll beat us at the Rock, then, doesn't it? (Given the way results this season have gone all round.)
  4. They can wear that red monstrosity of ours.
  5. Dombarton vs Airdrie

    Or this could be the one where the wheels come off...........?
  6. Montrose v Dumbarton

    Our kits were black and gold (hoops) in the fifties. if you check http://www.historicalkits.co.uk/Scottish_Football_League/Dumbarton/Dumbarton.htm it was those colours in 1887-1889 and (barring 1897-1904 and 1921-1924) all the way from 1907 - with variations to the shorts and socks [the 1967-1969 red ones a horrible aberration, but not as horrible as those flesh coloured ones at Stark's a few years ago] - to the introduction of the white with black and gold hoop in the 60s (first as a second strip then from 1969 as the main one.) It started going downhill/yellow in 1988. I've never liked any of the yellow tinged tops.
  7. East Fife v Dumbarton

    From our end it looked like Adam knocked the ball against the attacker and it then rebounded out of play. Sons fans were going mental at the ref because at first we thought he had pointed at the spot.

    You can't stop on a motorway to take a photo.
  9. Club Badges

    I always though that too. Until I went on the M8 up to Greenock and saw the Rock from across the water. It's only a brief angle though.
  10. Club Badges

    Unfortunately I don't have a photo from the correct angle. You can view it from the M8 on the south bank of the Clyde near Langbank - as I did. Since I was on a motorway though I couldn't stop for a photo.
  11. Club Badges

    That's not the angle I referred to.
  12. Club Badges

    There's an angle that, when seen from across the River Clyde, Dumbarton Rock looks like an elephant's head - with a castle on its back. Simples!
  13. Stranraer v Dumbarton

    In my lifetime we were the first* to drop from tier 2 to 4 in two succesive seasons - and finished rock bottom the season after that. Such a feat should be called the full Dumbarton - not the full Cowdenbeath. *I think St Johnnstone had earlier gone from tier 1 to 3 in two seasons when there were only three tiers. But they bounced back straight away - in the meantime pinching our manager.
  14. Sons' sorrow

    Just indicative of the season we've been having. Going bottom of the league without even kicking a ball.
  15. Sons' sorrow

    At games I quite often shout out, "Thrupenny heid," or even, "Dig a hole and bury 'im". The old ones are the best.
