weeyin  : (25 October 2014 - 07:05 PM) exactly, we had no money, no bank would touch us and Boyle couldn't find a buyer
steelboy  : (25 October 2014 - 06:24 PM) which group is this? boyle was trying to sell for years and no one other than a crook property developer was interested.
Suprawell  : (25 October 2014 - 06:10 PM) LD landed us in this shite with Well Society in the first place and drove off any group or hint of private investment
Suprawell  : (25 October 2014 - 06:09 PM) Help Alan and the rest of the team out on a day to day basis?
Suprawell  : (25 October 2014 - 06:09 PM) It's a pathetic situation, no chairman or figurehead, why can't we appoint someone to help on a strategic basis, someone more mature who isn't looking for big bucks...
Suprawell  : (25 October 2014 - 06:07 PM) Alan is General Manager, we don't have anyone in charge....hence the problem
DEWELL  : (25 October 2014 - 06:05 PM) Isn't Alan Burrows the chief excec. Could he make a statement or even the dreaded vote of confidence for McCall. The silence is indeed deafening.
underboylehe...  : (25 October 2014 - 05:11 PM) Previous regimes would have made some show of support for the manager, and also to assure the fans that they are doing everything in their power to get us back to winning ways. However, as a few have pointed out on here, there seems to be no one at the club who has taken up this role. Previously John Boyle or Leeann Dempster would have said something by now.
steelboy  : (25 October 2014 - 05:10 PM) i turned it off after 15 mins of waffling about confidence and communication, did he say anything interesting second half?
weeyin  : (25 October 2014 - 05:00 PM) That's what McCall's 30 minute interview was supposed to be, no?
underboylehe...  : (25 October 2014 - 04:00 PM) Who knows, however, I think it’s time for someone in authority at the club to come out with some words of encouragement about how we are going to get out of this current mess.
mfc  : (25 October 2014 - 03:59 PM) im stumped on that one milo
milo  : (25 October 2014 - 03:53 PM) Who's in charge though?!?!? Does anyone know?
underboylehe...  : (25 October 2014 - 03:52 PM) Good results for Celtic with Accies and United both losing.
mfc  : (25 October 2014 - 03:52 PM) i think thats partly the problem underboyle the leadership behind the scenes is non exsistant
underboylehe...  : (25 October 2014 - 03:51 PM) Good result for Caley against United
underboylehe...  : (25 October 2014 - 03:51 PM) 2-2
underboylehe...  : (25 October 2014 - 03:51 PM) Are Ross County still drawing 1-1 with St Mirren?
underboylehe...  : (25 October 2014 - 03:49 PM) Even if it’s only a token gesture, I think someone at the club should at least comment on our current plight. I am sure John Boyle or LD would not have been slow at coming forward with some words of wisdom for the fans.
milo  : (25 October 2014 - 03:46 PM) I don't think we need to keep illustrating how bad we are, but at one point thi season we were 6 points ahead of St Mirren. Since that point they have picked up 8 points and we have picked up 1!!

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.
