weeyin  : (16 April 2014 - 03:34 PM) Looks like Bryan Jackson has done another good piece of work with Hearts.
weeyin  : (16 April 2014 - 01:05 PM) 1 Andy Harrow was more than enough
ropy  : (16 April 2014 - 05:56 AM) 2 Andy Harrows
claretband  : (15 April 2014 - 11:22 PM) Wiki's a bit out then...." More recently, he has set up a welder fabricator business in Kirkcaldy"
Onthefringes  : (15 April 2014 - 10:28 PM) Andy Harrow has long since left Hungaria for the Far East...
stv  : (15 April 2014 - 09:20 PM) Nae Celtic game thread yet scared to start one ?
weeyin  : (15 April 2014 - 08:57 PM) Getting beat is a result, just not a very good one
DEWELL  : (15 April 2014 - 07:14 PM) We've got 2 hopes of getting a result against Celtic and one's Bob. <_<
Frazzie  : (15 April 2014 - 06:49 PM) Andy Harrow lives in Budapest. I bumped into him in Nancy with wife and dog in tow aswell!
texanwellfan  : (15 April 2014 - 05:44 PM) Big weekend coming up as we start the post split fixtures. Hoping Caley and St Johnstone can take some points off of sheep and Utd. if we get anything form Celtic game that will be a bonus and if we win then it will be a kick in the baws for the other top 6 teams
steelman1991  : (15 April 2014 - 02:43 PM) Sorry Andy - mixed you up with Andy Harrow
steelman1991  : (15 April 2014 - 02:28 PM) @Andy, sorry thought I had read somewhere that you worked abroad and from some other comments thought I may have run into you in Nancy with Wife and Dog in tow - Apologies.
weeyin  : (15 April 2014 - 12:43 PM) MacLeod was OK when he first came in. The team had been dire and needed a real shake up. But his tactics weren't the greatest. Davie Hay romped the First Division with what was basically MacLeod's team.
Andy H  : (15 April 2014 - 11:30 AM) No I have always been me :D Why?
steelman1991  : (15 April 2014 - 11:22 AM) Andy were you Ujpest in another life?
Andy H  : (15 April 2014 - 10:57 AM) 6-1 the following game, not day
Andy H  : (15 April 2014 - 10:57 AM) I remember being delighted when he left and we got Davie Hay. What a season that was in Div 1. 7-1 v Clydebank away, a 6-0 win midweek and another 6-1 the following day, we were scoring goals for fun. Did we not score 90 odd goals that season and end up top scorers in Europe
steelman1991  : (15 April 2014 - 07:53 AM) Sorry tex thought you were talking about Wallace's first game - yeah Thistle away that season 1978-79 Ally gave full debuts to Iain MacLeod, Stuart Rafferty and Meikle, though Rafferty appeared as a sub earlier that season - under Roger Hynd, so not quite plucked from the Juniors - he had been signed earlier that season by Hynd.
steelman1991  : (15 April 2014 - 07:37 AM) Think you both got it wrong - Wallace's first match in charge was an opening league fixture against Rangers 2-2 at Fir Park. Bobby Watson gave 2 players their debuts plucked from Junior football - Derek Weldon & Bernie Grant (1 and 5 appearances respectively) v Hibernian at Easter Road
SteelmaninOZ  : (15 April 2014 - 05:50 AM) @tex: was that not jock wallace that did that? Never was comfortable with that bastard as motherwell manager

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.
