  1. Who Are The Jags Players In This Photo?

    Thanks Jaggernaut. Just like me then (I also happened around 1962). Hopefully there will be another happy event this weekend, although I'm not feeling very optimistic after last night's display of hoofball.

    Anyone know when the city end terracing was remodelled to get rid of the high wall and extend the front over the old dog track? Was this also when the scoreboard gantry in the photo was replaced by the one I knew in my late 60s youth?

    Wasn't allowed to go to the semi-final - too young, too late, too far away (on the 66 bus!) - so the final was my first trip to Hampden. Happy days.

    Modern footwear for the early sixties so my guess would be a bit later, maybe 65 or 66? Not impossible that it's even late 60s going by the McEwans and Long John Whisky adverts in front of the shed. This would still put it (just) before my time, which is my excuse for not recognising anyone in the photo from either side. A postponed match eventually played on a meaningless end of season midweek night might be an alternative explanation for the relatively low crowd. On the other hand Celtic were winning virtually everything in sight from 66 onwards so would likely still bring a good crowd. 1965?
  5. Post Split Fixtures

    Like the constipated mathematician, perhaps they are working it out with a bit of paper and a pencil.

    Spectacular deductive reading Mr Kincaid, or should I say... Mr Holmes? https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=derby+county+baseball+ground+1950s&client=safari&channel=ipad_bm&dcr=0&prmd=isnv&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiT9Y_b9YfaAhXIthQKHR9fDmoQ_AUIESgB&biw=1024&bih=648#imgrc=qKJkKOKqa9hE-M:&isa=y
  7. Ian Maxwell replaced by....

    Yes, written from a certain angle but it highlights the historic corruption at the heart of our game. The football authorities were complicit in Rangers' cheating of the taxman and EVERY other Scottish club, including Thistle, during the EBT years and the 'wee tax case' that preceded it. Have things really changed since?

    Donald Park next to Bobby with, I think, Johnny Marr sitting behind. Alex O'Hara at the far end of the row next to Beastie MacAdam? Pre-season 1978?

    It's unacceptable. No debate.

    Don't know if it's you but I know it's not me. I was standing just below the old scoreboard that day.
  11. Celtic

    There, fixed it for you Javeajag.
  12. Motherwell 13/12/17

    I remember it like it was yesterday. Doesn't time fly!
  13. Who Are The Jags Players In This Photo?

    Still not absolutely convinced. The crowd looks a good bit bigger than the reported 2000.
  14. I don't blame Hearts either Gianluca if they are complying with SPFL rules. Hearts' ineptitude in relation to getting their stand built and certified in good time is only exceeded by the inability of the football authorities to properly oversee the Scottish game.
  15. So instead Thistle get penalised by through increased fixture congestion and fan's get messed about? That's fair. I return to my experience of amateur games from my youth. It's not a penalty, it's just the consequences of not fulfilling your agreed fixtures.
