  1. I also sometimes used to get the Kelvin bus (the 109 or 115?) that went along Maryhill road to the Drum but left me with a wee walk from my home stop afterwards. Missing from football now is going into the wee programme shop near the main entrance, getting a lift up the only part of the wall that you could get a puddy up and climb over at the city end and the regular slight crush getting down the stairs to get out (at the city end again). Also randomly meeting someone you knew on the terraces (I met my physics teacher - no idea he was a Jag till then) and standing in the same spot so you and mates could always meet up in the shed.
  2. Surely that's a positive? We can't even claim to be the least FT professional club, I also think Dundee might sort of envy our history too?
  3. It's Thistle so his shot will most likely scream in to the top corner!
  4. People would be amazed that the King of Spain turned out for us too!

  6. Yeah, we are not a (really badly) mismanaged club in the way that so many others are, our issues are that we just always seem to be the club that fcuks everything up? We should be like Killie or St Johnstone, but we end up being the bouncy ball of Scottish football, but we are those super ball ones that can just about go anywhere!!! Why can't we be steady (ish) and build on things, we are an amazing club and no matter, what it's always good to be Jags fans?
  7. I think we merited our place in the top 6 and whilst the performances once we reached there were poor, I fully expected us to kick on with better recruitment and be challenging for top 6 again the following year. Unfortunately that just didn't happen and we recruited and performed poorly.
  8. Just heard that cove have yet to drop a single point at home in their new ish stadium, hopefully we can go better than a point and secure a winner. Mon the Jags!!
  9. I like McInally, seems to pretty much just say what he thinks and it's usually something I either agree with or can see his point of view. Hope he does reasonably well this season, a close 2nd would be nice.
  10. Good that you ( and the spfl) knew all all of that in advance and were therefore correct to close it all down early then. I personally didn't realise the Scottish govt were making things like that clear back then. Well spotted, any chance of a link to the statement with those facts?
  11. Got to agree, I do the fixtures for my local pool league every year, about 15 - 20 teams in total in any given year. Some pubs have 2 or 3 teams (only 1 table), some can't play on certain dates due to events and I also need to avoid season ending matches with a and b teams playing each other etc! Takes an hour or so to sort out but easy enough, just got a spreadsheet and some formulas helping to keep things right. Wonder how much I could charge the spfl?
  12. I don't think that the club's asking for the details want to sue, they're just asking to see the papers? I appreciate we are unlikely to agree however if I was in his position I'd have simply advised club's that there were several ways to access the documents, either listing all of them or advising club's to seek their own legal opinions about how to do that. Just offering the one that suits you, whilst not legally wrong, is morally questionable and insular, clearly he has not learned any lessons about giving the member clubs partial information or just one option. I'd personally want the representative to give me all of the options and allow me to make my own mind up. If there's a side which could end up being of most benefit to the majority of the member clubs, that's fine, highlight it - but be fully honest about that, not selective in what you tell people.
  13. WJ, is it proper in your opinion for the impartial chief executive overseeing two internal warring parties, to advise that in order to find out the substance of a complaint the other club's need to essentially side with one of the parties involved? He also appears to have offered (or suggested) using the services of the legal representatives that are in place to protect both parties too? Shouldn't he have offered all of the potential routes the club's had (including siding with or asking Hearts and Thistle to share them) in order that everyone had correct and proper advice and could choose the option that suited them best? It appears to me that he's given them the single option that suits his own agenda. I'm saying his own agenda - based on the fact that it's his stewardship which has ultimately led to the legal case against the organisation. Maybe being selective to suit your own agenda is a suitable way for an impartial leader to operate, as long as you get your own way, everything in the organisation is just grand and no one needs to know otherwise!
