milo  : (30 September 2014 - 11:30 AM) Definitely.
Spiderpig  : (30 September 2014 - 11:18 AM) Even though he had a poor season last term i would still have Faddy back in the team :nod:
milo  : (30 September 2014 - 08:21 AM) Faddy at St Johnstone for a trial.
MJC  : (30 September 2014 - 07:12 AM) Our 'kids'? That's not a word I'd use to describe the majority of our squad!
Well-Made  : (30 September 2014 - 04:53 AM) Just watched the Sevco highlights wonder if the compliance officer has.
dmacd1  : (29 September 2014 - 10:48 PM) Typo there
dmacd1  : (29 September 2014 - 10:42 PM) It's unthinkable we finish in those bottom 2 spots. Our kids would freeze in a play off against sevco. 
steelboy  : (29 September 2014 - 09:02 PM) to win the championship hearts are currently 6/5 with stan james, rangers are 5/4 with bet victor and hibs are 25-1 with SJ. Free Money?
Ya Bezzer!  : (29 September 2014 - 09:01 PM) Forget the 6 points, Hearts have scored 10 more goals after 7 matches!
weeyin  : (29 September 2014 - 08:52 PM) I always thought it would be tough for anyone to win that division this season. There are enough decent teams (at that level) in there to keep the Glasgow and Edinburgh mobs honest
underboylehe...  : (29 September 2014 - 08:50 PM) True, we shit it at the mere mention of their name. At this early stage Hearts are looking the most likely to be champions.
weeyin  : (29 September 2014 - 08:48 PM) *beat
weeyin  : (29 September 2014 - 08:48 PM) We couldn't be them if they played their Under 12s Supporters Club team
MJC  : (29 September 2014 - 08:48 PM) We're the only team that would be likely to face them in a play off that would lose to them over two legs. Any other top flight side worth their salt would take care of them!
underboylehe...  : (29 September 2014 - 08:46 PM) It certainly won’t be easy playing Sevco (for us anyway) in the dreaded play-off.
weeyin  : (29 September 2014 - 08:42 PM) Rangers in a battle with Raith Rovers for that play-off spot.
Ya Bezzer!  : (29 September 2014 - 08:42 PM) FT. Rangers Ha! Hibs Ha! Ha! Ha!
underboylehe...  : (29 September 2014 - 08:31 PM) Boyd has just had one chopped off.
underboylehe...  : (29 September 2014 - 08:30 PM) 1-3 with around 8 minutes to go.
steelboy  : (29 September 2014 - 08:27 PM) he's made millions since they went into admin, he should walk away for free like strachan at boro

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.
