  1. Smallest Support In SPFL

    It that bad? The day of the Old Firm on 29th December Albion Rovers got 145 in v Berwick Rangers. The same day i went along to Rutherglen Glencairn at home and about 70 turned up.

    Fair play to you, can't be too many readers of Arabic on P+B
  3. Smallest Support In SPFL

    Must a strange set up being a small club playing in a major stadium. Must be similar at Clyde although in a smaller scale. Trying to think what a supporter would be ever be asked to do at somewhere like Clyde or Queens Park. Maybe sell the programme or man the two or three gates? A mate of mine works for some dodgy security/cleaning outfit that has a contract at Hampden and i asked recently about Queens Park games. Needless to say his first answer was "Who" followed by "oh aye the football team" I'll grass some poor sod up at this point and say he found empty Buckfast bottles during a Sunday shift although he did admit that might be some of the cleaning staff. Queens Park fans drinking Bucky!!! Nah even i don't wear that one.
  4. Smallest Support In SPFL

    I'm a Queens season ticket holder, and I had to ask the exact same question on here recently. The club do very little to promote and advertise membership, which seems crazy to me as it must be a significant source of income. Others on here may answer your question better, but my understanding is that there is no real criteria, you just need to apply, and be proposed and seconded by existing members. There is obviously a membership fee too, and like a season ticket it covers the cost of all home matches (including cup games). My old man had a whizz idea in the late 1940s and became a Queens Park member (not sure if season ticket holder and member was the same thing back then) for about three seasons. The plan being you'd get first chance at a Wembley ticket. Think he admitted giving up with the nearest he got to the Wembley was two blaws at a ragman's trumpet. Think the magic circle saw through passing chancers even back then. Get the impression the average Queens fan is never getting near a consultancy role at the club. It's not a dig but some us still remember the tax payers money flying about during the Hampden rebuild. Didn't a Queens Park committee man walk away with a couple of million? Come and watch the Queens if you want but don't get any fancy ideas.

    Is an average of 564 at Queens Park that bad considering the success part of the Queens story is about 5 generations ago?
  6. Smallest Support In SPFL

    Take it the Queens Park supporters bus that used to leave from George Square on away days is now a distant memory.

    It might be overpriced but comparing one well-supported Junior side with the poorest-supported SPFL side doesn't prove that. I've been to Junior matches where the fans have been outnumbered by the squads of the two teams. That doesn't say that the Juniors are overpriced. Where exactly did the Queens Park support go? When did it start to drift away?
  8. Smallest Support In SPFL

    Or does it say the product in SPL2 is completely overpriced?
  9. Smallest Support In SPFL

    How does this compare with St Roch’s Juniors last Saturday in a run of the mill league game, attendance 296?
  10. Your local paper versus your club

    The local and national newspaper scene has been dying for decades even before the internet came along. There was a spell a few years back a free newspaper (The Gen) used to cover the Junior teams in Glasgow North East area from Ashfield to Shettleston. Great coverage, only problem was it was fortnightly and then it was monthly. It not only covered matches but included things like reports of club agm’s. Take it went out of business since i’ve never seen it in recent years. Most clubs (although not all) have figured out social media as being in the clubs interest. Sad when you see a Junior club’s social media pages that nobody has updated in months. Every club should update social media twice a week, once to notify your own support your playing home or away and the score on a Saturday night. Not posting for months is just neglect.
  11. Your local paper versus your club

    Evening Times gave a full page report on the St Roch’s v Largs Thistle Junior Cup game in the Monday edition. Got a sneaking feeling Jim wouldn’t have minded reporting a win for the City club but alas it was not to be.
  12. A Photographic History Of Scottish Football

    Saw Accies play Aberdeen in there in 1979, 12,000 turned up for a Scottish Cup tie.
  13. A Photographic History Of Scottish Football

    My memory of this after the 3 game marathon (i saw it all) and folks had lost the will to live there was still one outstanding totally meaningless league game to be played. I’ll leave you to guess which two teams had still to play.
  14. St Roch"s 2018/19

    Somebody must have told the Scottish media the same story because it takes about 30 seconds to press in Largs Euromillions winners and plastic pitch/ training facilities for locals and out pops the info.
  15. Cambuslang Rangers And Manager Part Ways

    Sounds good. Will it be in the Glencairn Venue? Is there a band?
  16. Macron Junior Cup QFs

    Dutch you say, Johnny would probably sort you out for free.
  17. Macron Junior Cup QFs

    Train every 30 minutes to and from Glasgow Central, plenty of pubs and cafes. If you and your chums are looking for a smoke just ask for Johnny in any of the pubs and you’ll be sorted in 10 minutes. So i’m told.

    Also notice Whitletts have only 7 league games left to play.
  19. Games ON 9th February

    St Roch’s v Largs Thistle
  20. Talbot just keep rolling on....

    Fair play to Tablot getting on the ITV news there.
  21. A Photographic History Of Scottish Football

    Think the attendance was 103,000

    Liam Neeson spends a week looking for a black person in Northern Ireland. Hardly the brightest me thinks.
  24. West Region Championship thread 2018-19

    Why no St Roch’s or Rossvale?
