weeyin  : (27 November 2014 - 02:02 PM) I saw that - you really couldn't make this stuff up.

GazzyB  : (25 November 2014 - 09:13 PM) lampard still one of the best attacking midfielders in the english game

weeyin  : (25 November 2014 - 02:58 PM) Most managers without access to vast resources struggle to turn around teams they have previously made successful
Ya Bezzer!  : (25 November 2014 - 10:02 AM) I think Hughes is a bit like McCall, good when things are good but not good when things aren't. He had Falkirk and Hibs doing well and then when things turned couldn't dig them out of trouble.
weeyin  : (24 November 2014 - 02:27 PM) Yogi not looking such a bad appointment now (although I was never in his detractors camp as his record was always pretty decent)
Tweed  : (24 November 2014 - 08:27 AM) When it went 2-1 we changed the shape and we were too open and could have shipped 5 or 6.
Tweed  : (24 November 2014 - 08:27 AM) Inverness were superb on Saturday, every time we got the ball we were under pressure and forced backwards or made a mistake trying to be positive. We know we're not as good as them and to be fair until it went 2-1 they didn't create that many chances, certainly never felt like the Alamo.
Ya Bezzer!  : (23 November 2014 - 02:56 PM) Inverness home record this season is P7 W5 D2 L0 and Celtic lost up there. Not really the game to judge Black on considering he just got our first win at home to Dundee Utd in ages.
Goggles ...  : (22 November 2014 - 10:26 PM) But in response to "I'm reactionary??" I think you proved my point with that rant
Goggles ...  : (22 November 2014 - 09:46 PM) So we've been beaten by the league leaders and previous league leaders, there's a lot of teams who can claim that. We were getting gubbed last season and eeking out results against bottom 6 and too many couldn't see the rot was already there because they had hardons after the last day antics
DEWELL  : (22 November 2014 - 08:45 PM) Im reactionary?? We're playing CRAP We've been gubbed 4-0 at home to Accies . We got gubbed home and away by Inv Caley. We've got players who cant pass cant shoot and cant defend.... :angry:
Goggles ...  : (22 November 2014 - 08:27 PM) And what can he do? And if he did anything other than McCall giving him credit in public, how would be know? Please advise.
Well Well  : (22 November 2014 - 07:56 PM) He has been there the whole time McCall has of course he is partly to blame. He done nothing as assistant to stem the tide of failure.
Ya Bezzer!  : (22 November 2014 - 05:48 PM) 6 defeats out of 7 is relegation form but you can hardly blame Black for that.

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.
