  1. I never met Wullie, but I vividly remember the match against Flamengo in 1960 I think. Incredibly, we won 9-2 and Wullie was the right back up against the Brazilian world class left winger. Each time the Brazilian approached, he jinked right, left and back to right again. Wullie, still reacting to the first jink, caught him every time.
  2. For the under seventies, maybe I should add that he was our rock-solid goalkeeper when we had arguably the most skilful and entertaining football side Scotland has ever had.
  3. Showing my age, but Hastie Weir would be a good shout.

    Thank you for the first-hand account. I'm glad no non-combatants were involved and that a bouncer, like some stewards at matches, went too far.

    I thank you for repeating some of my main points, but: YOU said people were wetting their pants; YOU admit you were blotto; YOU and our pals' behaviour resulted in the Club having to issue an apology; YOU won't be missed if you decide to take your poison elsewhere. I was at the match and I had a drink before the game which is why I was able to comment in an informed way regarding The Mallard. As it says on the tin, you and your mates were a disgrace.

    I had hoped this thread was dying and I wouldn't have to respond to your post. However, there were more than 300 'Well fans in the stadium and the drunks numbered about 20. Many of the pisspots didn't make it all the way to Victoria Park and that's a plus. Maybe it was you or one of your pals who was on the floor of The Mallard pissed out of his mind an hour before kick-off and maybe it was he or you who wet himself. Most of his/your noisy and obnoxious mates who weren't sitting down in the pub could barely stand up. If that's how you want to behave, take it to the San Giro or the Greyskulls Arena. I don't think we need your "atmosphere".

    Poor performance all round except for Randolph. We need Faddy to start before we can make any sort of judgement. Was right midfield an experiment? All the RC player against him wanted to do was to take a "superstar" out of the game by mainly foul means. Is that what he'll face every game?

    No. The stewards were fine. I'm ashamed to say a section of our support behaved very badly. This wasn't about atmosphere. It was about drunken idiots.
  9. Sorry about that NWF. It's bad for you but good for me. I had to stay overnight at the Moorings after the last meeting because of the difficulty of coming back over the Southern Uplands late at night. Give us all your views. Those who agree will be very happy to take them forward.

    In that case they would be allowed.

    I don't suppose you're aware of the Al Jolson song, "The Spaniard who Blighted My Life". Good tune and contains the memorable line, "Ill stick a bunion on his Spanish onion if I catch him bending tonight. Ole!"
  12. Here's a quotation from a 1937 Hollywood movie called "Nothing Sacred": "I'll tell you briefly what I think of newspapermen. The hand of God, reaching down into the mire, couldn't elevate one of them to the depths of degradation." Nothing much has changed in 75 years then.

    It was the [email protected] e-mail address given in the official announcement of the charter and I gave details exactly as requested.

    Mibbees. I registered interest last Saturday. I'm now told I'm on the reserve list. I would have paid up front or at least posted a non-refundable deposit. Most people on the flight apparently booked even before the draw. I suspect that there will be a mass cancellation due to the budgie being sick or granny no too weel on Wednesday next if we get slaughtered in the first leg. Some way to run a business.
