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

I've always been a bit miffed about this. What exactly are they trying to get at? Seems a bit weird.

It’s a reference to The 1956 Scottish Cup Final win over Celtic. John Cumming returning to the pitch with blood pouring from his head. He’s often credited with those words, but I think it may have been someone else who uttered the quote in reference to his spirit.

Same could be said for 'We Are The People', tbh.

Utterly meaningless.

the arctic monkeys had a good response

“who’d want to be men of the people, when there’s people like you”

It’s not really comparable. Blood doesn’t show is a reference to one of our greatest players battling on after a head knock, to win the Scottish Cup v Celtic.

I’ve no idea what we arra peepul is all about. Other than maybe a kind of oneupmanship over religion and culture.

I always thought ‘we are the people’ meant ‘we are the people of Scotland’ as in ‘this is our country, why don’t you go home Celtic fans’?

What is slightly tin pot however is that when we crowd sourced a big flag with it on for the 2012 cup final the flag ended up being too big to display at Tynecastle so it’s only ever seen at Hampden

They also chant "No Surrender" in one of their songs. Confused bunch.

Not sure it's quite as deep as that, could be though. Hibs fans also chant it though, so I'd be surprised.

I quite like that about it. Makes it a bit more special. Think it was maybe draped over seats before the crowds were let back in after CV19 too.

I’m no expert on this but

How would you know whether to change it?

Are you sure you’ve thought this through

No, you're right I haven't. I apologise for my terrible attempt there.
