  1. Ronnie Hamilton scored in first six in 1964-65.
  2. You mean Darren Randolph? Very good goalkeeper. 42 caps for Ireland.
  3. Didn’t Bayern destroy Spurs 7-2 this season? I think this says more about the strength of Bayern than any comparison of the English and Spanish leagues. Bayern’s supremacy doesn’t even say much about the Bundesliga.
  4. Julian Bream, guitarist (87).

    It’s funny you should say that! Banks almost signed for West Ham. This is from his autobiography:
  8. Looking forward to watching the match, but hoping AD will be more attacking in his selection. If the defence needs extra protection at home to St Johnstone then they aren't good enough. Dicker's had two matches in four days since his op so give him a rest. If Brophy is available, let him loose. Haunstrup must be pushing Pinnock for a place. Either that or give him a shot at LB and leave Waters out, although he's done nothing wrong. Depending on how the game goes, give Dikamona and/or Whitehall a run out. Whatever, use subs!
  9. There was a few that season but there was also some good crowds outside of OF matches: Hearts 18,000+ St Mirren (New Year) 12,000 Hibs, Dunfermline, Motherwell, Morton, East Fife (Cup) around 10,000 Partick 8,000+ They always used to say that Ayrshire was a hotbed of football but the juniors must account for a lot of that.
  10. The only complaint I had last season was the guys who thought they were just doing a video commentary and left the audio listeners in silence for ages at a time! It's a great facility to have for exiles.
  11. Chrissy Not disagreeing with anything you say but the system has been up and running for a year. Gav generally commentated on away matches last season because of his MC commitments at home. Alan was a regular contributor at home and away matches. A variety of others made up the team, some better than others.
  12. Celtic were testing their players, at least as frequently as the protocol required. All were negative. Players had been given days off and told not to leave Glasgow, reportedly. In the absence of a positive test, would it have been reasonable to expect them to have confirmed that no players should have been in quarantine? What if Bolongoli had lied? The SPFL regulations state that "A Club participating in an Official Match must ensure that those of its Players Playing in the match are eligible to Play in such match". It goes on to say that "Any Club which (i) Plays a Player who is not eligible to Play; (ii) Plays a Player in circumstances which are not in accordance with the Rules and/or Regulations; and/or (iii) applies to Scottish FA Register a Player without the consent of the Board where such consent is required by the Rules or Regulations, shall be in breach of these Regulations". Was Bolingoli ineligible as the result of a rule or regulation having been broken? It doesn't seem that the SPFL rules and regulations stipulate any grounds for ineligibility other than through registration, cup-tying or suspension anomalies. They have not considered, for example, breach of government quarantine rules, unless you regard that "A Club participating in an Official Match must ensure that those of its Players Playing in the match are eligible to Play in such match" is an umbrella strict liability. It would be an onerous one as it would require a club to satisfy itself that a player might not be eligible to play through, for example, being an illegal alien, or an escaped prisoner etc. But would it be reasonable to have expected Celtic to have verified before selection that none of the available players had broken the instructions? It would only have taken as long as it took to tell them not to leave Glasgow.
  13. There was a time when a move to Motherwell was a big move - Ally Mauchlen, Shaun McSkimming.
  14. Bally Jerries! Fancy bombing a piggery.... (Obligatory Home Counties WW2 banter)
  15. I just don't think he was a fantastic servant. We have had much better servants at the club who haven't had the good fortune to have won caps. He did a job for us and we did well by him. He came for free and left for free. No hard feelings. He's a better player than Millen but Millen's working like a Trojan and is playing for the shirt. I think it's disrespectful to call him a reserve.
  16. Who decided half-way through his three-year contract that he was definitely leaving at the first opportunity. I'd rather have Ross Millen.
  17. More an embarrassment for him after saying he wanted to play in the English Championship.
  18. It's an old running "joke". gdevoy is mentally scarred by a traumatic period when he was interned in Bedfordshire!
  19. Chris Burke is 37 before the year is out, but the Kilmarnock winger is more effective than ever. He's scored in each of his side's opening three games of the Scottish Premiership season. He's played in all but three minutes of those matches. And his importance to the Rugby Park side is pronounced. Former Scotland team-mate James McFadden described him as "getting quicker with age" but how is a player who has now scored in each of his last 16 seasons as a professional doing it? How did he reach this stage? Since breaking through at Rangers as a rumpled teenager - and scoring on his debut against Kilmarnock in 2002 - Burke's career has ebbed and flowed. He departed Ibrox after just short of 100 games in seven years, going on to have two productive seasons at Cardiff City, a further four at Birmingham City, then a couple at Nottingham Forest. He returned to Scotland four years ago with Ross County, but a virus curtailed his involvement before he signed for Kilmarnock in summer 2017. A tally of 76 games and 14 goals have followed as the former Scotland international's influence has grown steadily. What does the data tell us? Burke had 67 touches (left) in the draw at Ross County and did most of his work on the right flank That Burke is working as hard as ever and is just as involved. Any thought that he might be eased back into a cameo role as age catches up with him has been banished, thanks to his ferocious grafting up and down Kilmarnock's right flank. Some managers might have been minded to move him into a more restrained central role, but Alex Dyer - and Steve Clarke before him - have seen the value of deploying Burke in an area where his delivery can cause chaos and where he can steal in at the back post to snatch the odd goal. What do they say? Former Scotland team-mate James McFadden on Sportscene We seem to be speaking about wee Burkey every week because he just seems to be getting better. He had no doubt in his mind for the goal - he raps it into the net - and he is such a massive influence on the Kilmarnock team and the training pitch as well, I imagine. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/53758075
  20. Your hatred of England, esp the Home Counties, knows no bounds.
  21. Anybody who has been where they shouldn't would do well to come forward now. Trying to keep it quiet won't go down well with the FM.
  22. I was wondering how long it would take! Nobody's saying that we have a divine right to win anywhere. It's just that talk of taking a draw isn't likely to excite supporters or inspire players. I'd rather a manager just said that we will go with the aim of playing as well as we can and see where that takes us.
  23. I was disappointed to hear AD say post-match that they had said on the bus up that a draw would be a good result. I don't know if he meant this was with the players or just Andy Millen, more likely. Either way, it seems to me to be setting our sights low. It was only Ross County and we should aiming to win games like that.
