  1. Was Thomas born in 1878 in st Martins Perthshire? In the 1901 census he was a visitor at the Mann family home Rosemount with job given as a joiner. as a 3 year old in the 1881 census he was living with his parents Thomas and Betsy in Perth. Both parents born in Dundee!!!! And John, born 1886 living in Scone in the 1891 census? try ancestry, they have newspapers online and you may see mention of the company in adverts etc or even long service notices etc also try trade registers.

  3. Notice lots of players leaving DU and none coming in during this window. Is that down to finances smarmy?
  4. A foot, or the other end, a hip.
  5. When I saw the heading I thought you meant the DU manager. But suppose it could also be the Killie boss. Been a few after a defeat to saints.
  6. The table looks so much better after that. Smashing goal by McCann, great, super.
  7. And yet it was his run down the left that won us a corner from which our first goal was scored....*palm on forehead emoji*
  8. As a matter of interest, how would Kane’s effort (that the keeper touched over but did not result in a corner) be judged, on or off target? I thought it was going over anyway, so off target and would not count in this strange metric. does hitting the post count as on or off target?
  9. Thanks randoom. So can we say saints defence is blocking a lower proportion of shots than other teams? take a hypothetical situation. Rounding that figure to 2, a team that has 6 shots on target will score 3 goals against us by that measure. Have I got that correct? So the other three shots, were they saved by the keeper or blocked by defenders? In the situation where all 3 blocked by defenders then keeper has actually faced 3 shots and let in 3! To me this measure is therefore a reflection of the whole teams defence, not just the keeper. Am I missing something?
  10. Andrew’s comment about defenders blocking shots could be relevant. Do such shots, if on target, count for that metric? I assume not, in which case a goalkeeper with players in front of him who do a good job of blocking such attempts is going to face fewer on target shots than similar in a team with defence that do not manage such blocks. perhaps a more meaningful measure is one that combines shot attempts saved AND blocked against goals scored? A further musing, are shots that do get through a good defence more likely to produce a goal? Has one bit of play from the opponents led to a high probability goal chance (like the goal by Brighton I think yesterday)? not supporting or castigating Zander, sitting squarely on the fence.....:)
  11. I missed the goal.....my feed was showing players warming up until I switched player....still not seen it......doh!
  12. Given the thaw, which has been forecast for a few days, why could the game not have been switched to today (Sunday)? on the same vein, I see a bit of a freeze is expected early next week. Game off again on Tuesday? If united do not put the U/s system on then that looks a likely outcome.
  13. I read CDs comments as the lad doing extra training sessions being brilliant, not necessarily what he achieved!
