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 werent that great but humping the real Dundee made it all worth while. Posted Image

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?

Man of the Match Awards 2017-2018.  2 - KIPRE, CAMPBELL, MOULT.  1 - BOWMAN, McHUGH, CADDEN, ROSE.

1. Queens Park - Ryan BOWMAN, 2. Morton - Carl McHUGH, 3. Berwick Rangers - Cedric KIPRE, 4. Rangers - Chris CADDEN, 5. St. Johnstone - Andy ROSE, 6. Ross County - Allan CAMPBELL, 7. Hearts - Cedric KIPRE, 8. Kilmarnock - Allan CAMPBELL, 9. Hibernian - Louis MOULT. 10. Aberdeen - Louis MOULT.

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.
