  1. Following on Kmcalpin's point:: Does that mean that all persons wearing celtic strips or green and white at Republican marches or Rangers strips at Orange walks will be arrested.
  2. UBH I understand about the templates etc.,but, when I look at it, it looks incomplete. It seems to lack something SORRY.
  3. Very good effort at the 1952 retro shirt UBH. I don't have the software or the expertise, so could I ask you to make a coupla changes. I maybe wrong but I don't remember short sleeves in the 'fifties all had long sleeves and rolled them up. Have another look at the photo. The collar is similar to a shirt collar and the white extends into the amber,noone ever used them but there was a button at the top and one halfway down (you can do with out them). It's only my opinion but I reckon the shirt collar adds too the style. Have a go. Ta
  4. Judging from the posts above, what we really need is a " Phil O'Donell"
  5. well lads time to get the thinking caps on, You only have a year to outdo yesterday at next years cup final.
  6. Albi I take it that your Email complaining about the sectarian chanting from the Celtic end all through the game yesterday is winging its way to UEFA headquarters. It was even mentioned at half-time on the BBC. In the dim and distant past when I got to the games and did quite a bit of drinking and partying, I have been in the company of 'Well supporters who after a few enjoyed singing the Sash etc. I have also been in the company of 'Well fans who after a few missed Dear Auld Ireland and sang rebel songs. Enjoy yourself,have a drink and do what I did and join in with both lots. It's much more fun.
  7. Congratulations to all involved. Display looked brilliant on the Tele.
  8. I was also just on the Kerrydale site and noticed a lot of them saying that cup final tickets shouldn't go to 'WELL fans who don't attend games. They went on to say that as they live in Motherwell it's a really scummy town and the only good thing is the Railway Tavern. They don't see the irony of them leaving every saturday and not supporting their local team.
  9. There I was sitting watching the tele the other night, when the Hovis advert came on. You know the one, crowd of farmers having a race. The tune they use is The william Tell Overture. It was used back in the late 'fifties for 2 shows on the tele,The Lone Ranger and William Tell. Anyway, I remembered the words they used on the William tell show and found myself singing;; Come Away Come Away with Motherwell Come Away With The Team That Does So Well What a Day What A Day For Motherwell What A DAAAAAAY For Motherwell I'm not that good with words etc. but I'm sure some of our musicians and lyrcists out there could maybe tidy it up. Try it and see what youse think???
  10. Did Josh receive the money I sent. Don't seem to have any confirmation from Paypal yet.

    John Swinney

    Just turned the tele on to BBC. The Big Debate:: the Economy. John Swinney is wearing a very bright Claret & amber tie. Is he a supporter???
  12. Twenty years ago, as I have mentioned on other threads,I had been ill for some time and was waiting to go into hospital for an operation. I, therefore, missed the Semi-final, the replay and the Final. Low and behold,I have been ill for some time and I am waiting to go into hospital for a few operations and will miss the Semi-final tomorrow and if we get through the Final. Good Luck & Best Wishes to all at Motherwell FC. The Management,Backroom staff,but, in particular, the Players and Fans. I hope it's a day where you can say, "I was there" and talk about for years to come. MON THE 'WELL :thumbup:
  13. Congratulations to all at Motherwell FC. A definite team effort. :thumbup:
  14. According to the Sun and Hearts web site, next month marks the 125th anniversary of Tyncastle. There will be a large number of Hearts legends at the Motherwell game. Sounds to me that it's an ideal time to stuff them.

    Craig Brown

    This in NOTW, "Brown claims he is due around 8,000 in bonuses following Well's progress to the Scottish Cup semi-finals---even though he quit Fir Park before the last eight triumph over Dundee United." :wank:

    Craig Brown

    What I took from the papers this morning was that it was not an unpaid bonus from last year, but, because we have reached a semi-final, he is expecting a bonus of GBP8000. :wank: Sorry no pound signs on this American laptop.
  17. John Boyle just whispered something in Craig browns ear and Brown tried to have a go at him.:thumbup:
  18. 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.
  19. Money sent. 15GBP Just so you know. Forgot to sign my name. GOOD LUCK
  20. Tried to send some money but was told recipient not receiving money at present. I will try again later. Judging by the layout at Hampden you might have to give more thought to the timing of the display.
  21. I just thought that I would add my opinion. First of all it ain't petrol blue, if anything it's sky blue,I notice on that site of old jerseys that we also had, yellow and black stripes,plain white and a snazzy maroon, will we incorporate them. In 1913, we started to wear claret and amber and for 98 years that's been our colours. My opinion is we should stick to claret and amber but put a petrol blue badge or maybe epaulettes for those who want to wear blue.
  22. Yabba's Turd DVD's arrived this morning. MANY THANKS :thumbup:
  23. What always brings memories of fitba' in the past(fifties and possibly early sixties) is:: Jimmy Shand's Bluebell Polka As soon as the final whistle went it was put on the tannoy, not just at Fir Park but at other stadiums as well. Don't know why.

    Why are the SIGNATURES,PROFILES and QUOTATIONS so dim. Quotations and Signatures can't read them at all. Profiles can be read but only just. OR is it my laptop????
  25. Put me down for one at the moment, Yabba. Depending on price might be 4 Skippy sunday as well.
