DEWELL  : (20 December 2014 - 02:46 PM) Kerr and Angol dropped? Fab they're both crap. Vigours needs to get fitter so happy enough with his team.
ropy  : (20 December 2014 - 02:31 PM) I wonder if Kerr will be the first sub on
ropy  : (20 December 2014 - 02:24 PM) Assume Vigurs is unavailable so Sutton/Erwin is the only real debate
AllyMax  : (20 December 2014 - 02:23 PM) Vigurs injured ??
GazzyB  : (20 December 2014 - 02:17 PM) Looks like a 4-3-3 to me
GazzyB  : (20 December 2014 - 02:16 PM) In all seriousness happy to see Ferguson & Ainsworth in with ZFA dropping out
GazzyB  : (20 December 2014 - 02:15 PM) Ooft. Baraclough out!
ropy  : (20 December 2014 - 02:06 PM) Reid at left back?
AllyMax  : (20 December 2014 - 02:04 PM) Motherwell FC ‏@MotherwellFC · 2 mins2 minutes ago Motherwell: Twardzik, Reid, Carswell, McManus, Ainsworth, Sutton, Lasley, O'Brien, Law, Ojamaa, Ferguson #SMFCvMFC
AllyMax  : (20 December 2014 - 02:03 PM) You won't when you see it Gazzy :-)
GazzyB  : (20 December 2014 - 01:58 PM) looking forward to seeing the lineup today
superward  : (19 December 2014 - 06:36 PM) I was only joking about the 'better fan' point so wind yer neck in mate. You still haven't pointed anything out that I appear to have missed so my opinion is unchanged - ther are wanks within our support. Anyway, I agree this is boring so happy to leave it on a differing opinion.
Onthefringes  : (19 December 2014 - 06:04 PM) I shouldn't really, but, fuck off - you're boring. Because you see & hear something doesn't mean you know what's gone on surely? Judge a book by its cover? My point was in relation to factual errors & personal slate on fellow fans of our club. Football for me & plenty others doesn't have to be experienced like the super fan. Clearly you are better though.
superward  : (19 December 2014 - 02:52 PM) ...and on your season book comment. That was in reference to you 'lack of knowledge' comment that keeps popping up to back up my point that I have a fair amount of knowledge about what goes on by using my eyes and ears....not because I am a better fan than you. Clearly I am though.
superward  : (19 December 2014 - 02:46 PM) *thou
superward  : (19 December 2014 - 02:46 PM) @onthefringes - Not holier than though, just expressing an opionion that a lot of people share. Also not 'she'....do tell me though what did I miss that you clearly keep referring to given I was sitting right next to everyone as well as outside the stadium afterwards?
weeyin  : (19 December 2014 - 02:37 PM) Official site says "Tickets for Saturday’s game can be purchased from the Fir Park Ticket Office until 4pm on Friday. After that, tickets will only be available from the Away ticket booth on Greenhill Road at St Mirren Park."
myteam  : (19 December 2014 - 01:16 PM) anyone know if the ticket office is open sat morning? cheers
fat_tony  : (19 December 2014 - 12:54 PM) Paul Paton's an absolute tool. However, it's mental that he is still suspended for something that even his alleged victim, Johnny Hayes, says didn't happen.

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.
