  1. Saints Lotto

    Banks will do that no problem but the money is only made available to you once it is cleared at the other end.

    Seems clear that Gerrard wanted him. Begs the question does Gerrard really know what Sevco's financial state is? Stumbling block according to the intellectuals on the Bears Den was his wage of £60k a week. Does Gerrard not know what his old pals are on per week or did King confuse him with one of his famously long winded statements?

    Agreed, according to Allan Preston on Sportsound Alexander had studied Sammon's penalty against us and as soon as he began his run up knew exactly where he was going to put it.

    Christies did indeed have one in County Place but I think you are right there was a tea room upstairs for a while in the shop illustrated. Entrance from South Methven Street?
  5. Royal Wedding and Saints

    Ah! But do remember that he who would "cast the first stone" must first pass a very strict lifestyle test.
  6. Royal Wedding and Saints

    Stone me, as the more discerning of you have noted, it was just a wee story about what it was like following Saints in the days before floodlights. Spare a thought for those of us who went to all that trouble to watch an abject 4 - 1 defeat but at least we got our reward 54 years later on the glorious 17th of May!
  7. Royal Wedding and Saints

    Way back in 1960 Princess Margaret was to be married and it was to be shown on TV. The ladies in my office were all of a tizzy asking for time off to watch but no dice said the boss. The usual spate of suspicious sickies was avoided when Saints drew 1 - 1 with Dunfermline in the cup at East End Park. The replay at Muirton was an afternoon game, there being no floodlights, and most of the male staff wished to attend. The ladies came up with a solution, they would staff the office on the day of the replay if the men would repay the favour on the day of the royal wedding. Agreement was reached in a flash and everyone was happy. The ladies came out on the plus side though, Saints were awful and lost 4 - 1.

    Fascinating pictures Chips. Next time you post a boring picture will be the first.

    Probably blue envelopes. Strange given that King tried to argue in Court that he could not make the 20p share offer because he was skint. When that didn't work he claimed he had managed to persuade the trustees of one of his family trust funds to underwrite the offer. He still has not made the offer because the Court want to see the money in a UK bank. Guess what! King does not have a UK bank account and says he is having problems setting one up. He says the Court is bullying him!! So he has problems with the Court not trusting him and out of his own mouth banks are not too keen on him. The SFA, however, no problem.

    Pity the seasons almost finished.

    What's the difference between Bing Crosby and Walt Disney? Bing sings and Walt ****** Beano circa 1948

    Wright is a lucky name for Saints!
  14. Jeanfield v Forfar West End - Wednesday 9 May

    More than helpful Cumbo. Any chance you could list the 12 clubs? I presume Linlithgow Rose and Boness will be 2, also Musselburgh? All the best to the Swifts, hope this will keep them in the top East Junior League.

    He probably realised he wasn't going to get it back when they asked him for another £6,5 million hence his departure. I expect the share certificates are in a tasteful blue so at least that's his spare bedroom redecorated!
