  1. There's a decent long read in The Courier on the game too. https://www.thecourier.co.uk/fp/sport/football/st-johnstone/1226818/long-read-mcdiarmid-parks-greatest-game-the-30th-anniversary-of-st-johnstone-3-airdrie-1/ It was before my time but it's always a game that's been talked of and remembered fondly despite the result. I suppose due to the sense of occasion, the game itself, John Martin's performance and Stevie Gray's goal. 10,000 at a St Johnstone v Airdrie game would be incomprehensible in the top flight these days let alone the second tier. I think the contrasting fortunes of both clubs since then is a microcosm on how to manage a stadium move and how to run a football club. We'll hopefully see you soon though (after a double promotion).
  2. Great idea. Will be signing up ASAP. Excellent way to support the club in this difficult time and decent perks too.
  3. I see St Johnstone have put up a 30 minute documentary about the game on their website. That's my football fix for the weekend sorted. https://tv.perthstjohnstonefc.co.uk/tv/video/vod/666 It was before my time but it's always a game that's been talked of and remembered fondly despite the result.

  4. Good interview here with Kenny Brannigan. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/51552821 Interesting interpretation of his exit from Queen's Park mind.
  5. Interesting interview with former player and coach Kenny Brannigan. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/51552821 Seems to have gone through a rough patch but glad he's made it to the other side.
  6. 30 years ago this coming Tuesday - https://www.thecourier.co.uk/fp/sport/football/st-johnstone/1226818/long-read-mcdiarmid-parks-greatest-game-the-30th-anniversary-of-st-johnstone-3-airdrie-1/
  7. This came up on my Facebook feed yesterday and I will be watching it every day* of self-isolation. Every hour*.
  8. I believe that the Trust have closed the page and will be sending the money directly to the club's bank account after it was requested donations be made straight to the club rather than through any 3rd parties. The club are accepting direct donations and hopefully they will announce the details of the membership club soon.
  9. Done. Best of luck in this trying and unsettling time.
  10. Also, while I'm not sure it can be labelled a 'classic', the SFA are streaming the 95 cup final tonight on Facebook and YouTube at 19:45 if you're missing your football fix.
  11. Some ways to help out the club during these trying times. Hope everyone is keeping safe. https://www.airdriefc.com/1920news/170320/Membership-scheme-coming-soon https://www.gofundme.com/f/keep-airdrieonians-fc-alive?utm_medium=copy_link&utm_source=customer&utm_campaign=p_lico+share-sheet
  12. Yeah totally agree. He's always had a lot of potential but he's really stepped it up since he got back in the team the last few weeks. When he concentrates, keeps it simple and just focuses on defending he;s good centre-half for this level with a lot of potential and a very high upside. I hope we offer him a contract too and I'd be surprised if we didn't. Refine his passing game and start to score goals at first team level (he already looks a threat in the air and from taking set pieces) and he'll be a cracking player.
  13. Player of the Year IMO. Our defence is really what has gotten us this far and he's better than Crighton IMO. I'm sure he's been an ever present this season too. Leon is probably a shoe-in for Young Player of the Year but I think Kyle should be in with a shout too.
  14. A good and very important win today. Might not have been pretty but that's a game we'd have lost in previous seasons so have to be pleased in that respect. Not many games left.Just have to keep taking care of our own business and we'll be grand. Not impressed though by the continued chopping and changing. Not convinced at all that will be the team to get us through the rest of the season and the play-offs (though I do recognise we had some injuries and niggles).
