milo  : (21 August 2014 - 03:25 PM) I thought Lappin was a great player for us. That was a few years ago right enough.
weeyin  : (21 August 2014 - 01:44 PM) Wonder if they'll lend him to us for Saturday as an emergency left back
Well-Made  : (21 August 2014 - 12:52 PM) Lappin joins St Johnstone
weeyin  : (21 August 2014 - 11:21 AM) Which isn't the best idea given that it seems to take him 2 or 3 months to get up to match speed
weeyin  : (21 August 2014 - 11:16 AM) Seems to be what Faddy does every season - weigh up offers and start playing weeks after everyone else
kmmfc  : (21 August 2014 - 06:56 AM) McFadden training with Partick and weighing up several offers including some from abroad
Goggles ...  : (20 August 2014 - 11:52 PM) McFadden getting interviewed on SSN about Everton game at weekend, couldn't make out his training top tho.
texanwellfan  : (20 August 2014 - 10:44 PM) respectable performance from StJarnan tonight against inter
texanwellfan  : (20 August 2014 - 10:41 PM) hutchie on the bench for fulham tonight maybe we can get him back on loan :whistling:
texanwellfan  : (20 August 2014 - 10:37 PM) is that right?? we get money if Celtic go through? Why is that? So dons and sainte ge tthe same?
numpty  : (20 August 2014 - 10:12 PM) More likely just Vincent Tan being a tit, but time will tell.
texanwellfan  : (20 August 2014 - 10:06 PM) 2 - 0 inter now
Well73  : (20 August 2014 - 10:01 PM) What the hell has Malky Mackay been up to? Reported to the FA by Cardiff and forced Crystal Palace to pull any job offer. Cardiff also reported the ex HR guy he worked with at Cardiff for serious impropriety. Reporter on BBC didn't want to give any details but said it is a very serious accusation :huh:
numpty  : (20 August 2014 - 09:48 PM) 1-0 Inter HT
DEWELL  : (20 August 2014 - 09:36 PM) Now that Them should go through does that mean we get £280 GRAND. Maribor are cack.
texanwellfan  : (20 August 2014 - 09:36 PM) 0-0 after 35 mins
Coolhandluc  : (20 August 2014 - 09:03 PM) :wallbash:
Welldaft Mk1  : (20 August 2014 - 08:56 PM) Sorry to mention it - but Stjarnan are about to KO v Inter Milan in the next 5 minutes. Assume 10pm KO for Italian TV :cry:
Del_Superwell  : (20 August 2014 - 08:56 PM) I see Hearts were pumped 4v1 at Livingston tonight with a certain Lee Hollis between the sticks
underboylehe...  : (20 August 2014 - 08:30 PM) I like your thinking, however, they just fucked up one of the questions and decided to pull the repeat.

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.
