  1. Nice bit on Wikipedia which describes his style of play as follows: His Aberdeen manager Craig Brown said that he was, "a strong, gifted striker." and said that he played like Dennis Bergkamp but was built like Joe Harper.
  2. It must be tough when all you’ve ever wanted to be is a footballer and then you get released. Good luck Charlie, l hope you get a team.
  3. First to the bar gets the drinks in!
  4. A video of Kevin Holt from his time with Pafos FC. A few years old now, but gives a wee idea of how he plays.
  5. Brilliant that we managed to win the league. Also means that, of the four Scottish senior leagues, three were won by Glasgow clubs this year.
  6. Amazing how two late-ish goals can change a frustrating night into an enjoyable one. Amongst a number of strong individual performances last night, l though Stuart Bannigan had another excellent game. He has a lot of really good qualities which seem much easier to appreciate when the team aren’t struggling and are actually winning games. He’s also managed to cut out that stupid tacking which earned him a few needless bookings/red cards for a while when things were not going so well. I always see shades of how Danny Lennon played for us in Stuart. I just hope he manages to keep it going and we all get to experience that success of quickly rising through the divisions again!
  7. Highlights from yesterday. https://www.airdriefc.com/dtv2021/270321
  8. Another memory was the kids (usually under 16) selling the first edition Saturday papers on a Friday night and seeing we had signed somebody in the football update part of the sport section (usually twenty words long). Then getting to the game the next day and hoping you could see who the player was during the warm up.
  9. Given that we’re getting close to the New Year and the weather has (albeit very slightly) started to get a bit colder and frostier, it got me thinking about what has gone from following football that we used to accept as part of ‘the experience’ in the past. Obviously, at the moment, watching it in a stadium is the big difference but hopefully (or maybe not!) we’ll get that back soon. So l mean the smaller, less headline grabbing parts of going to football that passed without mention. For me the one that disappeared without fanfare, and took place post the introduction of mobile phones and undersoil heating, was the game being called off as you walked up to Firhill on a Saturday. Having a stranger tell you the game was off (usually well after 2pm and with no way to independently check they weren’t at the sly) and having to believe them because they were going the other way and wearing a Thistle scarf, was a real leap of faith. And then the afternoon left wandering about because you had no football to go to and heading home just didn’t feel right. Anyone else got memories of less obvious things that used to happen at football (especially if it’s uniquely Thistle related) which they now only have as memories? Be good to hear them!
  10. Just got mine from Jamie Sneddon. Brilliant. Well worth the price of the calendar.
  11. Highlights from the Forfar website. Like them playing Local Hero at the start of the highlights.
  12. I don’t know if Jagszone showed this view of the penalty save, but it doesn’t look the greatest strike or follow up from this angle (although it didn’t look like a great strike at the time either). And that is the only fit striker we have missing both chances which is even more disappointing. Penalty save If we miss chances like this then l generally think we get what we deserve and yesterday that was only one point when it should have been three.
  13. I remember she used to have an advert with her surgery details in the programme. Also used to see her with a few old Labour (in age rather than political affiliation) councillors at the games. Very sad.
