Cup 1/4 Final St Mirren/Motherwell away

So how do the people who didn't keep their ticket stub fit into this equation ?  Can't ask for ticket stubs after the event when some people have chucked them away or recycled them. We should worry about this when/if it happens. 

I agree it should be stated by the club before the game and it would also be an incentive to go.

3-1, including an Eddie Morrison classic.

 

Some say that was the game that Paper Roses was first aired.

Can’t really use it as an incentive when St. Mirren away is 1,600 and we will hopefully have 4-5,000 home fans at the replay. Anyway, probably won't happen.

We need to beat Aberdeen first and St Mirren need to take care of Motherwell neither of which will be easy. 

If it is Killie v St Mirren then all set for the club to preside over another ticket distribution fiasco.

I struggle a bit with this. I know a number of people who dutifully travel home and away, almost every game and choose to drive. Yet they’re expected to be at a disadvantage because they’re not on a bus?

 

That's why I said ticket stubs. That said, at least half the folk there on Saturday were on buses so at least you'd cover a decent % of the away support allocating some to buses. Even the biggest clubs give buses tickets. I know the old firm do and grade their buses based on size/attendance.

It's like when folk moaned about buses getting tickets for Nomads, saying majority of folk don't go on buses. Low and behold, a few months later we've got 600 at Pittodrie in the cup and 7 buses up there. We got 50 for Nomads game, had 100 up there at weekend from our club and plenty of those never got tickets through Killie for that game.

There is no easy way of allocating tickets, a free for all isn't the fairest though - hence why I said ticket stumps.

50 years ago almost to the day, 21 February 1970 we beat Motherwell 1-0 at a packed Fir Park in the Scottish Cup quarter final. Take a bow Ross Mathie, my favourite ever Killie goal, a diving header from “miles out!”.

And lots of mud!

I meant an incentive to go to Aberdeen. Anyway, it doesn’t matter :S

I’m not sure whose memory is failing here but I’m surprised you weren’t aware of any trouble because I remember the fighting spilling on to the pitch and the referee maybe even taking the players off for a bit. 

But there was so much fighting back then that I could be confused! 

Oh there was ‘trouble’ for sure. The football special back to Killie was memorable.

My dad said there wasn't much left of the train by time it got back to Killie!

May well be my memory but the game wasn't exactly yesterday.  I believe the trouble was near the "segregation" area (think there was a fence of some kind)  I was much nearer the end of the pitch and heard of the nonsense, though not in any detail, from folk just heading away from it.  Don't remember any interruptions to the game, though selective memory can be a good thing when it bins the crap and just retains the good bits like Ross coming up with the cracker of a goal and  the great celebrations from the Killie fans after the goal.

No segregation in those days. 

It was a free for all and you could be surrounded by Well supporters, or vice versa. 

Bottles and cans were getting flung in every direction under the covered enclosure (wise of McLean to go behind a goal!).

Was in the covered enclosure at Motherwell and somebody behind us threw a can which I later discovered hit a young lad at the front who was there with his mum supporting Killie.

I very much doubt that. 

The match was played in March 1972, while MO released PR in August 1973.. 

Of course, anyone singing it could have been referencing Anita Bryant’s 1960 version but they would have got some old-fashioned looks (from me, at least).

That’s twice I’ve been wrong today. Ho hum.

A 7.20 Saturday kick off if we go through. 

More than likely , that will be very messy but let’s get the sheep out the way first

Not 7:19 or 7:21 ? Must be something really important on earlier, Dancing with your granny, perhaps ? 

If we reach the semi-final will it kick-off at 07:30 to avoid clashing with Saturday kitchen ?
