  1. I like his comment about 'the amount of space given in the newspapers to certain teams in scotland' If anything it has got worse now than it would have been then.
  2. We went to Philip Island and enjoyed the day - It's a fairly drove there and back but good. We also went to the 12 Apostles on the Ocean Road trip. Something else to see is the Shrine of Remembrance, which might not be everyone's cup of tea. We did a bike trip round Melbourne - Freddy's Bikes - which is quite central and near the Yarra if he's still there. If you go over to the MCG there are lots of different sports arenas nearby - AAMI Stadium - major tenants when we went in 2017 were Melbourne Storm (NRL), Super rugby team Melbourne Rebels (Rugby Union) and the 2 A-League football teams Melbourne Victory and Melbourne City. It is also known as the Melbourne Rectangular Stadium, and looks like a number of footballs interlinked from the outside. You will pass where the Olympic Games were held in 1956 and while the athletics arena has long gone the swimming pool remains - it is an outdoor swimming pool and the area is now used by Collingwood (Aussie Rules) for training. The Hisense Arena is nearby, and is used for indoor games/sports (basketball, netball, cycling, tennis, ice hockey) and concerts. The last arena is where the Australian Open (Tennis) takes place the 2 main areas are The Rod Laver Arena and The Margaret Court Arena. There is also a statue of Ferenc Puskas nearby. You can also go to Fitzroy Gardens where you will see Captain Cook’s house, which was his parent's house in Yorkshire. I believe it was moved from England. Melbourne was easily my favourite place in Australia.
  3. From memory, Killie had to win by 5 more goals than Clyde did if they won, and we were 5 nil up at Palmerston while Clyde were drawing 0-0 with St Johnstone well into the 2nd half. Clyde then scored late on which meant we needed to score again, which we did to go up 6-0, so as it stood we were safe, however Clyde got a very dubious penalty (I didn't think it was a penalty as I was at Firhill that day) well into injury time, which they duly scored to relegate us. We signed Tommy Tait the next season so he didn't play for us as Palmerston. In fact I am pretty sure he played for Clyde that day and celebrated as he came from Ayr.
  4. WFAANW - will always be the case. Team with more fight won that game.
  5. Thanks guys, that's helpful. We've already booked for a Blue Jays game the first full day there, which I'm looking forward to against the SF Giants.
  6. Does anyone have any suggestions what is worth doing in Toronto. We have 2 days there in June then head for Niagara Falls.
  7. It was the same at Fir Park in the Quarter Final. My dad took me home at half time because of it.
  8. I was tempted to say chance instead of chances but didn't want to be disrespectful
  9. I love listening to the paranoia of these clowns. Wonder what I could complain about after you beat us in the semi final - not a lot, you took your chances, we didn't.
  10. Has anyone done a tour of the Madison Square Gardens? If so is it worth doing/seeing?
  11. I don't disagree with you too much there, although I wasn't overly impressed with Dundee Utd last night (albeit they had 3 good chances in the last 15 minutes). I was of the opinion that we were doomed to go don, however when you see the way we played against Aberdeen and Dundee Utd we're as good as they are, however we need to start taking our chances more often. I don't know who will go down as teams start winning games you don't expect them to win when relegation becomes a serious reality. If I was a Motherwell fan though I would be extremely worried as they have been poor now for months, worse than us.
