  1. The ground where the bus was allegedly buried was Glenhead in nearby Duntocher. It was where Duntocher Hibs played. When they folded it was taken over by Drumchapel Amateurs who then resurrected the Duntocher name for a few seasons. When Clydebank reformed as a Junior club they played there before moving to Yoker.
  2. Falkirk must have made some money from the junior cup in those days. In 1976 Bo'ness played Lanark there. They gave the crowd a s12000 yet I knew people who were locked out and couldn't get in. It was absolutely packed.
  3. I do not understand why the BBC continue to cover Sevco games. The hierarchy at Ibrox refuse to speak to BBC journalists and pundits. We get Billy Dodds or Chick Young holed up in a cupboard reporting on games from Ipox. Then they read out a quote lifted from Sky or BT from SlippyG. It is like the spotty guy in school running after some lassie who ignores him. The free publicity they give this horrible institution is an insult to licence payers.
  4. Some comments on St Mirren's newish stadium here, If that is the road we ever go down when and if we move from Fir Park then lets hope we don't have anything like that. The shallow rake of the stand meant that I had no idea what was happening at the other end, St Mirren hit the post but from where I was it could have been a save or a block. I was unaware of any hand balls until I saw the highlights. I had no notion of how close O'Hara came to score in the second half. I rarely go to away games now and if that is what is on offer at these new parks I don't see me increasing my attendance. I seem to remember going to Falkirk a few years ago and having a much better view from behind the goals because their stand was steeper. Yet they get criticised for not completing their park. Maybe two steep stands either side rather than four shallow stands is the way to go. Viewing a game from behind the goal is not for me.
  5. So you think singing about a dead hunger striker and being up to their knees in blood is impeccable behaviour. Songs that were clearly being sung on Sunday and are totally irrelevant to football. The club that promotes sectarianism in order to increase their revenue so they do nothing about it. And what are the orange training tops all about? Oh wait a minute I just worked it out.
  6. There is a disused line even closer to Moor Park than the current line from Glasgow. It ran out to a station that served the race course. The remnant of the line can be seen by the dismantled bridge when you enter Lanark from the Biggar side. If you park at Lanark Loch you can walk along the old line and get a good view of the ground.
  7. I often think if you are a defender at one of the smaller clubs, Well, Killie St Johnstone etc then your job is harder than a defender at Celtic. One of the most bizarre call ups recently was the boy Hendry of Celtic. He had played almost every game in a Dundee side getting battered every week, got transferred to Celtic in January and after being in and out of Celtics team got capped. Now Celtic are trying to punt him. With Declan in the side I have taken an interest again on how Scotland get on.
  8. This thread makes depresses me . Celtic fans with their balaclavas to make them look like IRA men and Rangers with their red hand of Ulster flags. There are only two clubs in Scotland who rely on bigotry to promote themselves. I have not been to Parkhead or Ibrox for 15years and have no intention of ever going again. I hope we pump them tomorrow but if we lose 8-0 it won't bother me. These two clubs are irrelevant to me. I have no interest in this game unless we win hopefully with goal that should have been disallowed .
  9. Tried to listen to the Saturday Supplement this afternoon while doing some DIY and got a whole load of people talking about golf. Was the 5.30 show not on on Saturday evening?
  10. Couldn't make it today. How did we line up. Was it 352 with Seedorf as wing back or 442 with Dunne at left back?
  11. Hendry got Scotland Caps did he not? Oh wait he got them after about six games for Celtic. So quite possibly he is bang average or even horrific.
  12. Rangers have been in two European finals Barcelona and Manchester. Each time the game has ended in rioting but nothing was done by eufa or the SFA. In the 1970s while going for the league they were losing 3-1 at Fir Park. The Rangers support invaded the pitch and the game was stopped and the players taken off. After a break the game restarted and in a powder keg atmosphere Rangers win the game. No action by the SFA. Is it any wonder they behave the way they do when they have been allowed to cause mayhem wherever they go.
