  1. Aberdeen - St Johnstone

    Was it the Courier or Evening Tele (both DFC Thomson's finest) which ran a double-page spread of outraged wee team fans complaining that their Board had completely shafted them by taking the money and condemning them to certain relegation? Happy days and just shows that nothing ever really changes.

    Dance, wee boy, dance.

    One European campaign in the last 40 years. You must be so proud.

    We've never played in Trakai. Have you ever seen your team play in Europe?
  5. St Johnstone FC Thread

    Were you there? Milan's a great city.
  6. Dundee vs. Sevco - 9/12/18

    In Lichtenstein.
  7. Yes, I was paraphrasing. Easter Road. Doesn't that look like fun?
  8. The clubs with terracing had it because of the exemptions I mentioned above. Hibs and Hearts put bench seats on the terracing before building new stands.
  9. The SPL didn't exist until 1998. All-seater stadia were compulsory in the top division from 1994.
  10. I'm pretty sure the Taylor Report only applied to the English clubs. Pittodrie and Kilbowie were already all-seated (albeit using bench seats/bleachers) and Ibrox was getting modernised by Murray with his Steel company using it as a prestige project and to generate more income but there was no need to go all-seated until the SPL brought in their own 10,000 seat rule. Celtic and Rangers in particular would have needed to have made changes for European games but not til by the turn of the century or thereabouts. St Johnstone built the first new ground of the post Hillsborough era but they could have had terracing had they wanted to until the advent of the SPL. The Taylor Report applied to top division Scottish clubs as well. They had to be all-seated by 1994/95 with their standing capacity reduced by 20% per season from 1989/90 to enforce this. Clubs who were promoted to the top division in this time got an extended period to comply, although I can't remember the exact details of this.
  11. Aberdeen - St Johnstone

    Maybe our bench.
  12. Aberdeen - St Johnstone

    Indeed, but I've no problem with imposing a bigot tax.
  13. Aberdeen - St Johnstone

    I'd say it's specific to Aberdeen. Very specific.
  14. How is not conceding a penalty and not having a player sent off being fucked right up the shitbox?
