wunderwell  : (25 January 2015 - 11:42 AM) Being in the game competitively is a step forward.
weeyin  : (25 January 2015 - 01:11 AM) You know things are bad when fans start arguing about the definition of a step
Malky79  : (24 January 2015 - 07:23 PM) We were decent today certainly one of our better performances of the season. Like to see the goal line clearance again, Pearson should have done better with a glorious chance albeit on his wrong foot and like to see the goals we lost to see how we might have done better at them but but both Telfers strikes were very tidy.
Suprawell  : (24 January 2015 - 06:58 PM) Agreed, we are rank, give you a clue 'Well fans....a step forward is getting a draw at the very least...
Welldaft Mk1  : (24 January 2015 - 05:37 PM) Only a step forward in that it appeared we were in the game for the most part and seemed to create more. Small steps and all that. I am more upbeat + Ross and St Midden lost. No ground lost and we have played United and Celtic away. A couple of players in and back from injury and we will see where that takes us. All is NOT lost
SuperCC  : (24 January 2015 - 05:33 PM) That Mourinho interview on the BBC, cant work out whether it's complimentary to Bradford or not!!
Ya Bezzer!  : (24 January 2015 - 05:30 PM) Alarming that people think a 3-1 defeat is a step forward. That's 18 against, 2 for, and 0 points from the last 5 matches.
ropy  : (24 January 2015 - 05:27 PM) That was much better, almost feels like a win compared to what I have seen in recent weeks
smiddy  : (24 January 2015 - 05:20 PM) aw well as they say " same shite different week " wait till next week , and did I hear right that ainsworth was actually running ?
GazzyB  : (24 January 2015 - 04:56 PM) good job ya beezer, i got a 4 fold up for £80, the malta rungood is real B-)
GazzyB  : (24 January 2015 - 04:56 PM) just after his players were talking about going the whole season unbeaten they lost the next game, the jinx is real!
Kmac  : (24 January 2015 - 04:56 PM) Murder. I am going to go first... Baraclough can piss off with the players at the end of the season IMO
Ya Bezzer!  : (24 January 2015 - 04:56 PM) YES! £260! Thats pays for next seasons season ticket!
steelboy  : (24 January 2015 - 04:55 PM) Mourinho was talking about the Quadruple yesterday, that never ends well
Ya Bezzer!  : (24 January 2015 - 04:55 PM) still 3 conceded
Stu  : (24 January 2015 - 04:55 PM) Chelsea blowing a 2-0 lead at Stamford Bridge just doesn't happen in the Premier League. For Bradford to do it?!
Welldaft Mk1  : (24 January 2015 - 04:54 PM) Sounds like a better performance today. Would like to see the disallowed goal again.
SuperCC  : (24 January 2015 - 04:54 PM) I cared when I selected 9 home wins this morning!!
Welldaft Mk1  : (24 January 2015 - 04:53 PM) FA CUP mayhem. Chelsea, Man City, Spurs, Southampton out as it stands
Ya Bezzer!  : (24 January 2015 - 04:52 PM) big teams don't care about fa cup any more

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.
