weeyin  : (03 March 2015 - 03:22 PM) Ashley is probably the least crooked of the lot. Which says something.
Burn_Broomfield  : (03 March 2015 - 03:17 PM) This is when you'll see how much Ashley has carved them up
AllyMax  : (03 March 2015 - 02:28 PM) Does that men we can't call them Newco-stle any more ?
StAndrew7  : (03 March 2015 - 02:25 PM) Indeed; there's certainly more still to come in this saga. Round 1 to King, but Llambias and Ashley not bowing out could spell trouble. #Assetstrippers
AllyMax  : (03 March 2015 - 02:23 PM) Be interesting to see how their outstanding debt to Ashley is played out. That and their five Newcastle reserves.
StAndrew7  : (03 March 2015 - 02:19 PM) Evidently so. I've seen an e-mail between him and Llambias/Ashley where he basically tells them to GTF. SSN reporting it now, along with a couple of BBC journos on Twitter.
AllyMax  : (03 March 2015 - 02:00 PM) So is Dave a 'fit and proper person' based on having fewer tax fraud convictions than some of the previous board ?
StAndrew7  : (03 March 2015 - 01:50 PM) Strong rumours I'm hearing that Dave King is in at Ibrox. Proxy votes are in and it's pretty obvious Ashely/his team will lose.
Busta Nut  : (03 March 2015 - 09:46 AM) If he takes £800 a week we'll take him
domeski7  : (02 March 2015 - 05:47 PM) Deary me. All the cash and fame he has he fucks it righ up. Guilty or not guilty, career FINISHED. Always will be tarnished as a beast now. Society we wlive in.
Goggles ...  : (02 March 2015 - 05:41 PM) well thats a bit salacious. If he knowingly groomed and courted the 14 year old then by all means hit him with that. If he was in a club and went home with her and didn't adequately establish her age then while still heinous, is not in the same league.
unknown  : (02 March 2015 - 05:38 PM) England winger Adam Johnson is arrested on suspicion of being a paedo
Busta Nut  : (02 March 2015 - 09:58 AM) McMillan was mad with the gear I am sure
Burn_Broomfield  : (01 March 2015 - 10:25 PM) Jackson Martinez assist for Tello tonight in the Porto v Sporting match. Unbelievable!
Ya Bezzer!  : (01 March 2015 - 05:10 PM) For an alibi.
gilmour  : (01 March 2015 - 04:55 PM) How ?
Ya Bezzer!  : (01 March 2015 - 04:41 PM) Does anyone know where Craig Reid was last night?
gilmour  : (01 March 2015 - 01:33 PM) http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/scottish-news/one-man-dead-another-hospital-5252802. Other guy stable now
gilmour  : (01 March 2015 - 12:44 PM) 1stabbed dead other critical with his throat slashed
gilmour  : (01 March 2015 - 12:43 PM) Murder and attempted murder hill house hamilton last night

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.
