weeyin  : (23 April 2014 - 05:30 PM) Moyes only has one bad rap so far, so he'll get a new job no problem. It takes a lot of cock-ups at many clubs before you end up as unemployable as someone like Big Eck
texanwellfan  : (23 April 2014 - 05:25 PM) I am thinking McInnes might get it since they won the league cup and vastly improved their position from the last few seasons
texanwellfan  : (23 April 2014 - 05:23 PM) McCall, McInnes, Wright and Lennon are the nominees for manager of the year.
SuperCC  : (23 April 2014 - 05:10 PM) Listening to the bloke from Paddy Power on the radio and he said that quite a few £££ has gone on Moyes ending up at Newcastle, Spurs or Celtic before the start of next season! The Tattiedome is a fair drop from the Theatre of Dreams!!
weeyin  : (23 April 2014 - 04:15 PM) I see the Man U share price dropped immediately this morning
underboylehe...  : (23 April 2014 - 07:38 AM) A position has opened up for Moyes... :rolleyes: Celtic assistant manager Johan Mjallby will leave the Scottish Premiership champions at the end of the season.
ropy  : (22 April 2014 - 07:00 PM) The boy Thomas needs to get his socks sorted
bomjac  : (22 April 2014 - 06:54 PM) SPFL can fuck right off with their power grab. Nothing they have since the formation of their "elite" league has been for the overall good of the game. All they want is more cash to waste.
Del_Superwell  : (22 April 2014 - 06:52 PM) I see the Well under 20s have just beaten Partick thistle 5v0 tonight
Coolhandluc  : (22 April 2014 - 06:40 PM) haha yeah. Think its a snob thing myself, too good for europa and all that :rolleyes:
texanwellfan  : (22 April 2014 - 06:16 PM) .........if we qualify that is ! Don't want to jinx us.......still 4 games to go!
texanwellfan  : (22 April 2014 - 06:14 PM) tell the truth.........scared in case they get drawn against us :pleasantry:
Coolhandluc  : (22 April 2014 - 06:11 PM) My sisters a Man U fan (lived down there for 30 years).She says fans would prefer not to be in Europa league, ''dont want to watch a game on a thurs night v some Russian nobodies'' Oh the embarrasment
Brazilian  : (22 April 2014 - 05:41 PM) oops
Brazilian  : (22 April 2014 - 05:40 PM) [url="http://www.scottishfa.co.uk/scottish_fa_news.cfm?page=2986&newsID=13248&newsCategoryID=1"]http://www.scottishfa.co.uk/scottish_fa_news.cfm?page=2986&newsID=13248&newsCategoryID=1[/url]
texanwellfan  : (22 April 2014 - 05:39 PM) whats goin on now Brazilian?
Brazilian  : (22 April 2014 - 05:36 PM) SPFL continue to grab for power from SFA
texanwellfan  : (22 April 2014 - 05:26 PM) ok had a look and I suppose it's still up in the air if they will get a europa spot or not. as it stands, regardless of cup final result, Man utd are not in europa. But if Arsenal end up 5th, win the cup and Utd end up 7th then they will be in europa
texanwellfan  : (22 April 2014 - 05:08 PM) So Man Utd are not even in europa, is that right? Going to be a tough year for them not getting money from europe I imagine that will be quite a loss for them?
steelboy  : (22 April 2014 - 04:54 PM) i don't think they could give moyes big money to spend in the summer given how unconvincing he has been.

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.
