Goggles ...  : (16 September 2014 - 04:50 AM) The print media are not public service broadcasters who have to be impartial. If you want Tory spin you read the Telegraph, Labour the Record, and UKIP the Daily Mail.

SteelmaninOZ  : (15 September 2014 - 09:06 PM) ...how about the print media?
Goggles ...  : (15 September 2014 - 08:54 PM) Issue for the BBC, uniquely their coverage is by its nature public record and recorded and can be reviewed and totalled in the aftermath

underboylehe...  : (15 September 2014 - 07:42 AM) it's was reported by all the major media outlets including the BBC. The BBC said: "We believe our coverage has been fair and impartial and has adhered fully to the requirements of our Editorial and Referendum Guidelines."
SteelmaninOZ  : (15 September 2014 - 06:58 AM) Was there much coverage of the protest at PQ BBC?
maxywell  : (14 September 2014 - 11:09 PM) They must have lost the stats sheets on sportscene, every game had the exact same stats. :lol:
Pettywullieg...  : (14 September 2014 - 08:35 PM) Parma 4 Ac Milan 5.....very un Italian defensive.....Inter won 7-0 as well

Ya Bezzer!  : (14 September 2014 - 06:39 PM) Did they film them on a box brownie?
foghorn  : (14 September 2014 - 12:58 PM) watched the highlights -2 great goals yesterday

DEWELL  : (13 September 2014 - 09:12 PM) The one thing we have learned is who we can rely on and whose not good enough.
weeyin  : (13 September 2014 - 07:56 PM) Hopefully we'll have past our injury crisis when other teams are hitting theirs
roly  : (13 September 2014 - 04:24 PM) 7 points at the stage of the season we'll be at next week is hardly insurmountable either. Only Celtic have a game in hand of all the top six sides.
Ya Bezzer!  : (13 September 2014 - 04:19 PM) We probably lose next week, some of those teams will win and a few of them have games in hand.
Tickle Pickle  : (13 September 2014 - 04:09 PM) anyone got a link for the mayweather fight?
roly  : (13 September 2014 - 04:09 PM) 4 points is hardy insurmountable at this stage of the season YB.

My late father was the game. In those days Billy Steele was Dundee's top gun and was reckoned to be the potential match winner. Dad was a member of the Flemington branch who ran several buses to the match. His abiding memory of the journey to Hampden was a banner that someone had made up. It read "We're not afraid of Steel - we've handled it all our lives". The rest is history.
Part of the problem is an unrealistic level of expectation. We see football from all parts of Europe on television daily and fans are expecting....the technical ability and flair they see from Spain's La Liga and the top end of the English Premiership. Thats just not possible. It seems fashion is over-riding common sense.

It was a good day but they ran out of pies just before half time. Typical SFA, the seating and standing arrangements weren’t that great but humping the real Dundee made it all worth while. Posted Image

Ma Da' lost his bunnet, chucked it in the air after one of the goals and it never came back.

Bring back the old square posts!

Anyone know how many Scottish Cup Semi Finals we've contested?

Last time against Rangers, 1990/91 of course, and I vaguely remember one before that against Rangers but that's as far as my memory goes back.

Anyone got the answer?

I was 4 year old with measles.Vaguely remember listening on the wireless with my gran as the rest of the family were at the game,mum,dad,uncles,aunts,whole family has always been motherwell daft.
My mother had a drink from the Cup and I got Archie Kelly's jersey.I remember it was kept in a drawer but through the years it vanished, haven't a clue what happened to it.

Estimates varied, but my father always said that there were "60,000 from Lanarkshire", whatever that meant. In those days we had a fair support from Glasgow, Ayshire and West Lothian too.
