Welldaft Mk1 : (25 April 2015 - 04:54 PM) The results today. Makes it all the more galling we lost the last 2 games. Win v Ross C and Killie at home in next 2 games and could be at least interesting. Glad Hibs are in pole position, but reality suggests we probably should WANT to play Sevco as they seem the worst of the 3 teams we could face, even with our bottling record against them. Hibs midfield will P1ss all over ours.
Ya Bezzer! : (25 April 2015 - 04:47 PM) Dewell last six home matches we've lost 1. If we go down slate them but when we have a chance we need supporters to support.
texanwellfan : (25 April 2015 - 04:44 PM) ok that team then
DEWELL : (25 April 2015 - 04:44 PM) What good team?? We've had 2 and a half decent performances all season. We're a crap team who very occasionally puts in a decent performance.
texanwellfan : (25 April 2015 - 04:42 PM) sometimes we do sometimes we don't yabba agree with you that it's not a stick on for us to bottle it could go either way
texanwellfan : (25 April 2015 - 04:41 PM) just have to hope the good team shows up for the remaining games
DEWELL : (25 April 2015 - 04:41 PM) We're on footballing death Row and we've been given a stay of execution.
Ya Bezzer! : (25 April 2015 - 04:31 PM) Our away record is terrible but our home record isn't so bad. We all know Motherwell can be terrible one week, good the next. As long as we have a chance you can't just give up.
Yabba's Turd : (25 April 2015 - 04:18 PM) Still not buying into this ,when a team needs a result, or big crowd and shite it nonsense

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

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.
