he looks very slow and cumbersum and also there was nobody who was taking charge in the defence they were all just lookin at each other

Jules is a lazy untalented excuse for a player mind you

AllyMax : (25 February 2017 - 06:44 PM)

He seems to have a remarkable record of decent starts at clubs, followed by a drop off the planet in performance and popularity.

McGhees interview is ridiculous. Hangs Jules out to dry. No sign of him going unfortunately.

Maybe Ferguson has heard of an opportunity in the Premiership...

Barry Ferguson has apparently resigned from his poisition at Clyde.... wonder if he can show McGoo...ne how to do it.

The protest at Fir Park appears to be as limp as our recent performances... https://www.periscop...l/1dRKZPkVvyMJB Definitely as quiet as a game at Fir Park these days.

Well-Made : (25 February 2017 - 04:53 PM)

Hearing that McGhee is doing a Mourinho and declaring that result was 0-0 as he didn't see the 1st half.

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?

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.
