  1. Who Are The Jags Players In This Photo?

    You could well be right about the no. 8. Certainly lanky enough but I don't remember him being quite as hairy as that. On the other hand my memory isn't exactly reliable these days. I had forgotten my profile pic shows Denis in the aforementioned red top with blue shorts.

    Am guessing it's a reserve game judging by the empty terraces. The number 9 has adopted a very Bone-like stance although I'm not convinced it's actually him. No idea of the opposition.

    I also thought that was a great strip. Pretty sure we wore the red top with blue shorts on a couple of a occasions too, or is my memory playing tricks?

    Bobby Houston standing next the boss, not Denis. Is it Alex Forsyth on the ground next to Frank C?

    Cracking pic of the pointy bit on the main stand roof in its original condition. Anyone else think it would be worth a chat with the heritage lottery folk about a possible grant to restore it? As for the game, not a lot to go on for us youngsters but looks like Motherwell, maybe 61 or 62? Edit - apparently the correct architectural term for the pointy bit is a pediment. Every day is an education.

    Is the game "Spot the Ball" and did Neil Duffy win?
  7. Breathtaking Hypocrisy

    I haven't been following this very closely but I gather that MacLennan is a non-executive director for a company where Desmond is a minority shareholder. I'm happy to be corrected if these aren't the facts but if they are, I can't see how this can be interpreted as him being in employment of the richest owner of a Scottish Club. According to Wikipedia (not always the most reliable source but there's no reason to doubt it here) "Non-executive directors provide independent oversight and serve on committees concerned with sensitive issues such as the pay of the executive directors and other senior managers; they are usually paid a fee for their services but are not regarded as employees." So on the face of it, Desmond is just a shareholder and does't own the company but even if he did, MacLennan is actually being paid to be independent, which seems to be exactly the qualities we are looking for from our football administrators. King is simply sh*t stirring and if anyone is bringing the game into disrepute here it is him.

    You're right. It's not as if King has any undue influence over "our" football authorities. Same for Desomond for that matter but far as I know he has never been found guilty of tax evasion in his personal business interests, never mind been part of a club board that employed illegal tax evasion schemes that, among other things, cheated Thistle out of a cup final. Transparency? Bring it on.

    King is a glib and shameless liar. Don't take my word for it, take the word of the South African judges who found him guilty of tax fraud. How the hell he is allowed anywhere near Scottish football I'll never know. "[20] Mr. [Dave King] is a tall, slim man in his 50s. He appeared to be very confident and not in the slightest uncomfortable about giving evidence and being cross-examined. He is intelligent and articulate and appears to be well-versed in the intricacies of the financial world and the purchasing and selling of shares on the JSE. Notwithstanding these advantages he made a very poor impression as a witness. He is extremely arrogant and obviously thinks that whatever he says is so. It was demonstrated that he deliberately misrepresented the facts of the case to his legal representatives, to SARS in correspondence and at the section 74C enquiry and to the representatives and solicitors of the Y Trust. As his evidence progressed it became clear that he has no respect for the truth and does not hesitate to lie or at least misrepresent the facts if he thinks it will be to his advantage. There can be little doubt that on most occasions Mr. [Dave King] lied as he knew the correct facts and obviously decided to misrepresent these facts. In cross-examination Mr. [Dave King] often avoided giving a proper answer to the questions. Sometimes he simply ignored the point of the question and gave a long rambling answer. On other occasions he resorted to bluster or to attacking the integrity of the cross-examiner, accusing him of misrepresenting the facts to the court. He also attacked the integrity of the Commissioner's attorney, accusing him of presenting facts to the court knowing them to be untrue. It is significant that the appellant's counsel have not attempted to make anything of these allegations. They clearly consider that there is no merit in these allegations. We saw Mr. [Dave King] testify in chief and in cross-examination for four days and are unanimous in finding that he is a mendacious witness whose evidence should not be accepted on any issue unless it is supported by documents or other objective evidence. It was remarkable that Mr. [Dave King] showed no sign of embarrassment or any emotion when he conceded that he had lied to the Commissioner in a number of his income tax returns. In our assessment he is a glib and shameless liar."

    Even better picture. Love the guy in the middle leaping in delight at the goal. I'm assuming "Partick Thistle's first" was 2 or 3 years before the second goal in the other picture?
  11. New Management

    I like Archie. I have always liked Archie. I liked him as a player. I liked him as manager. I still like Archie but it's time to go.

    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?
  14. Who Are The Jags Players In This Photo?

    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?
