  1. I always thought the answer to this question was, in out era, Johan Neeskens and/or Johnny Rep who played for a Dutch youth team when the 1970 UEFA European Youth Championships was held in Scotland. From the little info I could find on google about it though it turns out the Dutch played in Dundee, not Perth, and the game we got was Belgium v Romania. The teams aren't given.

    Of course given all the Donnelly stuff that's flying around it could be that the McDiarmid Mole is at it.
  3. What has been your most memorable pre season friendly

    It's an urban myth that goal relegated United. Results elsewhere meant they went down no matter what they did.

    And if my auntie had etc etc. I wouldn't expect Tommy to say anything else under the circumstances. We played them, they deservedly beat us, they move on. I accept that and can sleep soundly at night without thinking 'if only'.

    Trakai beat us home and away as they were better than us and deserved to go through. I don't get the continued self-flagellation about it. We just weren't good enough.

    Sorry to bring football into it but by the looks of things he's had two good goal scoring seasons in nine. That's not what I'd class as a jewel either.

    Attendances don't matter as much in England because of their sugar daddy Murdoch dishing out ridiculous sums of money to them.

    It always amuses me that English fans who don't watch Scottish football as it's a pub league supposedly know so much about it. Many still call it the SPL which speaks volumes. It's obvious South Shields would win the Scottish Premiership and Buxton the Cup.

    Looks like the agent has got one of his media mates to put out a 'HELP...unless any of you get your act together he's going to have to go to flipping Scotland. For God sake get the finger out and sign him NOW.' kind of tweet.
  10. Player Contracts + Transfers

    Ah right. Doesn't surprise me either and I'm surprised they went as far as they did if it did happen which I've no reason to doubt did happen. I'm glad for him he's staying at Preston to give it a go. Lets be honest, after an injury that put his career in doubt you don't really know what you're going to get until he's played a substantial number of games. He was never the quickest and speed appears to suffer after such an injury. I think it would be risky for anyone to buy/loan him until January at the earliest. I'm sure Neil will give him every opportunity possible and I hope for Stevie's sake he gets back to the player he was.

    What exactly does 'put the club in debt' mean?
  12. FK Trakai away - Europa League 6/7/2017

    That's a great result. Well done Trakai. Hope they get at least shot of vodka to celebrate before an early night as they'll doubtless be up at 5.30am to start their work back in the onion fields tomorrow.

    Good post. I'll read it again after I've eaten.

    1-0 but more importantly it sounds like they didn't assault any Saints players for once.
  15. Player Contracts + Transfers

    Do nothing and it's 'They're playing in a crap league for peanuts and they'd have been in our wage structure. Typical Saints'. Try for someone and its 'FFS. We can't afford them. What a waste of time'. It's damned if we do, damned if we don't.
