  1. Where’d the welfare thread go?

  2. Sportscene Watch 18/19

    Thing is, I recorded it at 12.30 anyway, 8 hours worth as it happens (don’t ask). But I zipped through a few chapters and it was just politics and weather.
  3. Sportscene Watch 18/19

    Was there a Scottish Cup Sportscene on any time last night? According to the guide on my smart tv it was on at 12.30 am, but when I went to record it on my Sony hard disc thingy it was only showing as Bbc news 24.
  4. El Collsico

    Must admit this has kind of passed me by. In fact we’ve hardly shared a league with sevco yet. Have they still got a grudge against United then?
  5. Favourite quirks of Scottish stadiums.

    Yeah, tiles now I remember it...
  6. Sportsound Watch 14/15

    "On this and on a number of other things, Boyd is confused. On the weekend of the referees' strike in Scotland, Celtic hosted Inverness Caledonian Thistle. Alain Hamer from Luxembourg was in charge and disallowed a perfectly legitimate Celtic goal. The match ended 2-2 and Celtic went on to lose the league to Rangers by one point." Sorry, can't find the post you've quoted so entered it in brackets. My memory of the strike is, after all the 'Dougie Dougie' stuff which was obviously just a cockup by the ref, Celtic chairman John Reid came out with some guff about how he just wanted his club "to be treated like all the others". And yes, ICT came back from 2 goals down with seethe-inducing strikes from Richie Foran and Grant Munro.
  7. A Photographic History Of Scottish Football

    The main stand at Easter Road had 'Easter Road Park' on it when I were a lad, but 'stadium' now. As an aside, in the late 60s, I think the place in Govan was called Ibrox Park, but there was an air of poshness, as the announcer always started with 'Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to the stadium'.

    Think you're right. Plus it was on the far side. Last time I was there you could still walk over bits of the foundations.
  9. The Highland Derby

    ^^^^^ Only February and they're shiting it already. Is it true C(o)unty have only reached the last 8 twice?
  10. Smallest Support In SPFL

    I went there in January v Shotts in the West Cup. There wasn’t too much on that day due to the weather. The fact they get a good write-up on here probably made my mind up. Well worth it though.
  11. Smallest Support In SPFL

    Back in the good old 90s in the EoS, Annan used to bring a coach load to Whitehill. They were very welcome in the bar. We had a decent crowd ourselves, about double what we get now.

    You’re a week too late wi that one

    Last I heard, LL officials get offered an ‘honorarium ‘ of around £100, which most/all of them refuse.
  14. Kilmarnock v Celtic

    *St Andrew’s. Agree with you though.
