  1. Sons' sorrow

    I was speaking to a chap in the rub-a-dub (apologies to those offended) who had been watching Sons from the mid-70s - he was enthusiastic about the 1976 cup run - but gave up at the end of last season content that he had "seen Dumbarton in a cup final". He obviously still has an interest by the questions he was asking about our current plight, but it is sad that he feels that there is nothing to entice him back. If I meet up with him again I'll do my best to drag him to the next home game (whichever that may be) and hopefully stir that latent support. No criticism of Aitken or the Alloa fiasco - just somebody who appears to think nothing is going to get better for whatever reason.
  2. Sons' sorrow

    Why this should come to mind while I was shaking hands with an old friend I don't know, but I suddenly remembered an serious omission from the short discussion on things a certain supporter doesn't shout out every game nowadays: the word 'numpty'.
  3. Sons' sorrow

    Written as a supporter who is as frustrated as we all are. I really take my hat off to him, as I have done all season.

    You've hurt my feelings.

    I imagine we'll see the big Rovers down at the Rock the midweek after next.

    Ta. Was hoping for Morton at Posties.

    Anyone know where, when, and against whom the bounce-game is?
  9. Sons' sorrow

    Long time since I've heard the description "tanner ba' player", even though Elsie did play wi' a lot of baws. Do on-field instructions still include "get the jersey"?

    That was the day the space shuttle exploded on take off and David Sneddon was number one in the singles chart. You've also missed a player out. But you can be forgiven as he didn't play that many games for us and it was before you were born. The last record Steve Wright played before Challenger lifted-off was the theme tune to a well-known 1960s Supermarionation series which began with the words "I'd like to be an astronaut on Fireball XL5".

    Well said. However, I would also add to yourself that nobody is interested in hearing how much of an alcoholic you are in every post. I apologise to anyone offended.

    Nice not having to spend a Sunday morning in the company of the "The End Of The World Is Nigh" merchants.
