  1. Trapdoorwatch 2018-19

    No doubt showing my age here but I'm not a huge fan of modern lower league stadia with their daft commercial names, plastic bucket seats and a general lack of individuality - nobody does quaint like 'Vers, and whilst I'm probably in the minority for me it will be a sad day if they don't manage to avoid the trapdoor.
  2. Queen's Park v Clyde

    always amuses me the lengths (just read this thread!) that so many Clyde fans go to in order to demonstrate our irrelevance, completely oblivious to the irony therein
  3. Queen's Park v Clyde

    So glad you brought up that proud moment in your history..................when you went bleating to the organisers of the Fairs City Cup that you should be allowed to participate on the grounds that the Rutherglen boundary ran through part of Shawfield, so it now suited you not to be a Glasgow club at all but instead to take part as a team from Rutherglen. Funny how 80 years of participation in the Glasgow Cup was suddenly forgotten in a pathetic bid for glory, but very much in keeping with the tarnished image of an unprincipled club that wiil sign players that nobody else will touch simply to avoid a league play-off, and then breaks league rules to try to secure promotion when one of those players gets injured. Guess that's the kind of thing that happens when a wee club repeatedly tries to convince itself it's a sleeping giant

    That man would never be allowed anywhere near our dressing room with his background..................I mean, how low would we have sunk if we were reduced to signing former Cowdenbeath players
  5. The Battle for 2nd - Edinburgh City vs Clyde

    Ooops - I seem to have touched a raw nerve............better not mention it again as there are at least three very sensitive little chaps amongst your number
  6. Rovers v QP

    Reason enough for a few clubs to be hoping you do manage to stay up................anyone coming up would have the impetus of a honeymoon season to help them.
  7. Rovers v QP

    Assume you never saw Dougie Wilkie then?
  8. Rovers v QP

    Jim Gillespie - what a guy! Remember a game we had at Lesser Hampden against a Renfrewshire Select in a memorial match for Bernie Donnelly when the bold Jim bet Eddie he would score a few. Can't recall whether it was 3 or 4, but I do remember that as soon Jim got to one short of his target Eddie subbed him and he was none too pleased about it. Those were the days when there were quality players to be found in the Glasgow amateur leagues, and Jim, his cousin Mick and Keith Mackenzie were just a few of the experienced gems Eddie uncovered, and who all made the significant step-up with relative ease. I also saw him banging them in at the post-season international U-23 tournament in Dusseldorf which Queen's won, where Gent were so impressed they signed him there and then, before he had the chance to return to Glasgow where there were undoubtedly other suitors queuing up for his services.
  9. The Clyde FC 2018-19 Thread

    but you did commend the remark without reservation, so no excuse for sidestepping the perfectly valid question that Jeremy posed to you
  10. Rovers v QP

    that's why they're keeping quiet about it
  11. The Queen's Park 2018-19 Thread

    and yet completely unnecessary. If the SFA got their act together with the council then things could be sorted out in plenty of time. Time for the committee to get tough with this mob and tell them that they can take as long as they want to sort things out, but that our eviction from Hampden only begins a year from the date the deal is concluded. That should help to focus their minds a bit, as I fear these negotiations will simply drag on while the SFA try to play the waiting game secure in the knowledge that time is on their side and not ours.
  12. Queen's Park v Clyde

    That's strange. I just looked at our league results for that season. Played 36 - yup. Played Clyde 4 times (winning three and drawing 1) - yup. Oh, wait a minute. By any chance are you the only fan in Scotland who thinks that the league tables should be adjusted to include play-off results? Thought not. Next!
  13. QP v Cowden

    WTF???? Read all about it, read all about it .........................team continue to play at their own ground shocker!!!!! Eh, no explanation required.
