What's the most "Tin Pot" thing you've seen in the SPFL

Their early to mid 90s team was a shower of utter b*****ds who were appallingly dirty and widely despised (so much so that when Andy Smith made his debut for us in a preseason friendly in 95 and broke his leg, folk cheered).

Total c***s, although I imagine much of was glorious to follow for their fans. You'd love it if your team were a bunch of dreadful hacking wankers, but also a bit hard, who routinely wound up other teams and fired in snapping challenges on a regular basis.

Scum.

strange thing is if a certain Fife team hadn't got a dodgy penalty against them* in the Semi-Final I'll bet that team of hacking b*****ds would have beaten Hibs to win the 1991 Skol Cup...

 

*glorious though.. heh heh.

We look forward to renewing our rivalry with Partick Thistle next season, if we don't go up...  Had some cracking games with them over the years, right enough.
 

That dreadful programme column wasn't even the most tinpot thing Ballantyne did, either.  There was, for instance, the time he banned a hack from some rag from coming to our ground after he wrote a sarcastic match report of a pretty awful cup game we played at, I think, Morton.

Jim Ballantyne couldn't look more Sevco if he tried. 

Fat? Check

Bald? Check

Supports Sevco? Check

The 0-0 game? That was an amazing read, I don't really see how any adult could take serious offence at that.

Indeed.

 

I wouldn't call it an amazing read, personally - pretty by-the-numbers journo sneering, but JB spitting the dummy was more embarrassing than the game was to watch.

Maybe that's why Aston Villa have John McGinn and Celtic don't.

Germany has a great love for cheesy, techno disco and in that context the flashing lights fit in to their culture seamlessly.

In the East end of Glasgow, they just set off the epileptics.

I've not seen them live and no doubt they look decent when you are there - but they look shite on TV highlights. The bit where they highlight the players during the pre-match hand-shake looks for all the world like a floodlight failure at a lower league ground. Definitely a hint of tin-pottery IMO....

It's as though 2 or 3 posts are missing inbetween here but that genuinely was his answer.

Sorry misread the guys retort but he was still incorrect, We offered 2.75 million for John Mcginn apparently where as the disco lights ‘only’  cost about 2 million. We spent about 4 million in total on upgrades on CP in the summer where people assumed we lumped it all on the entertainment system but the new pitch cost well over 1 million and we replaced a lot of the old stand roof amongst other things.
