  1. Out of interest what is our capacity these days - the early days figure that sticks in my mind is 10,500 but thinking it’s a bit less these days. Will be great to see and HEAR the place full or near as dammit. My Mrs is now saying no…too much on for me and my lad to rearrange etc. She understands…well she says she understands…and says we can get to another game. Well yes we can..however. . No matter, if we can’t be there tomorrow night we’d be shouting from Surrey and Sheffield. COYS!!
  2. Thinking of driving up from Surrey tomorrow - picking up my lad in Sheffield on the way. Is best way to get tickets for us to try and get through on the phone? If I can get tickets today I’ll drive to Sheffield this evening.
  3. I was brought up in a Stanmore Rd tenement and though a long way from there these days I’m thinking I could have been heard there this evening…awesome result by CD and the lads.
  4. Who knows. But me and my lad are going to be really disappointed if we can’t. I’m flexible and could make any date - my lad would have to know as he’d have to sort work so needs a good bit of notice.
  5. I’m really keen to understand if and when the club has a celebration day/match with both cups as I want to come up from deepest Surrey for it, and bring my lad up from Sheffield, and would be looking to buy some merch. But we need to know when ASAP to be able to arrange.
  6. Maybe 10 pages of football reports in today’s Guardian...and mention of the Scottish Cup Final there is none other than in the classified results section. Not even a couple of lines. You might think that this might upset the SFA and they might send in a formal complaint...but hey - I’m not holding my breath.
  7. Yes - Wednesday on his doorstep but he’s a Utd fan - he sees them as the ‘real’ team of Sheffield.
  8. Cheers buddy...my lad watched it with me - he lives in Sheffield (Southey Green way) and though his English club is Arsenal his local club is Sheff Utd. We’ve been bouncing around the lounge of our holiday cottage.
  9. Have just watched the game while on a weeks break in north Norfolk, me and my lad have celebrated this astonishing achievement together with my mum looking on from’ above’ we are so so proud of the team and the club. Winners of Scottish football’s cup double and 5th in the league...don’t bother pinching me - I am awake and this is not a dream...though hold on...have we really just done that? Yup we have
  10. Is Murray ready and available...if he’s going to be in the CF squad he needs game time under his belt?
  11. My mum - a Dunkeld lass. Vaccinated me against OF-itis when a lad and gave me a booster jag every year. Thanks to her I never developed the OF illness and was able to take her and my own lad to the 2014 final. A joyous day for the three generations of Saintees, and on the 22nd she’ll be ‘looking down’ and cheering the lads on as me and my lad watch together - with her sitting between us in our hearts - and I’ll be wearing the scarf she wore that day.
  12. Me and you the same...62 and supported them since I was ten (well since forever) - the years of stick I took as a lad growing up in Glasgow and the blank looks I’ve got since moving to south of England in 1984...brilliant just brillliant...I must stop pinching myself it’s starting to hurt...unreal. What a great performance from the lads today. All round...but Spoony was class, Booth tireless, back three winning (almost) everything...great skills, teamwork and togetherness all over the pitch.
  13. Holy Moly - so many years getting the proverbial extracted by fans of the OF; so many years down here where I am in south of England after revealing that I’m from Glasgow being asked whether I was Rangers or Celtic - and receiving blank looks when I indignantly proclaim neither but that I’m a Saintee...and now this bonkers season after last night maybe just maybe there will be a wee bit of recognition. Meanwhile I have had loads of fun this morning with my Rangers season ticket holder brother - and soon to move on to my niece - also a Rangers season holder. It’s her birthday today so I’ve let her off this morning ... but the time is just about upon us. And my dear mum - who so proudly went to Parkhead with me and my lad in 2014 - will be smiling from up high and afar...maybe she’ll be taking my dad up for a joyous Highland Scottische - to tunes by Bobby MacLeod of course - their favourite. Both gone but joyously with me today. And we are all still dancing. So proud of the lads, Callum and just everyone...
  14. Aye - but Scotland can - and I wiz there
