Slight dig in McGhee's interview that he was maybe very subtly suggesting McInnes got Lasley sent off?

Las sent off.

Twitter : (30 April 2016 - 03:50 PM) Tweet(@MotherwellFC): 88' | 4-1 Red card for Lasley! Initially booked but changed to a red. Bizarre stuff.
Twitter : (30 April 2016 - 03:44 PM) Tweet(@MotherwellFC): 83' | 4-1 Aberdeen sub, McGinn off for Wright
Twitter : (30 April 2016 - 03:41 PM) Tweet(@MotherwellFC): 80' | 4-1 Aberdeen sub, Robson on for Rooney.
Twitter : (30 April 2016 - 03:39 PM) Tweet(@MotherwellFC): 78' | 4-1 Goal - Hayes bursts clear and knocks it past Ripley. Frustrating as it had been a decent spell for Motherwell
Twitter : (30 April 2016 - 03:38 PM) Tweet(@MotherwellFC): 76' | 3-1 McLean booked for a foul on Johnson. Marv has been in the wars today!
Twitter : (30 April 2016 - 03:36 PM) Tweet(@MotherwellFC): 74' | 3-1 Johnson is fouled by Shinnie in a decent area on the right...whipped into the box and almost lands for Moult but Taylor clears.
Twitter : (30 April 2016 - 03:31 PM) Tweet(@MotherwellFC): 71' | 3-1 What a chance for Moult! Played in well by McDonald and his shot from inside the box goes inches past!
Twitter : (30 April 2016 - 03:30 PM) Tweet(@MotherwellFC): 69' | 3-1 Johnson is set clear but the linesman's flag goes up. Looked tight!

Cadden

3-1...

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?

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.
