Re: SEMI FINMALS

Here`s a wee article I did for a magazine a few years ago which might be of interest: On 9th March 1912, Clyde beat 3rd Lanark 3-1 at Hampden Park to reach their 2nd Scottish Cup Final and three weeks later Celtic beat Hearts 3-0 at Ibrox Park to join them. So what? you might well ask. Well, it`s mo...

Re: SEMI FINMALS

Ah yes, but Celtic have played a few games recently @ Hampden so that would have given THEM an advantage there too. Pity Firs Park has gone because that WOULD have been a neutral venue.

Re: SEMI FINMALS

To be completely fair to Celtic fans, I think their semi final vs. Hearts should be played @ Celtic Park. Perhaps the other semi final could be @ Cove Rangers` ground.

SEMI FINMALS

So it`s not fair for Celtic fans to travel to Edinburgh(near Tynecastle) but it`d be OK for Jam Tart fans to travel to Glasgow(near Parkhead).

Re: THE ARSENAL STADIUM MYSTERY

On the subject of few words, Sam Kydd appeared in hundreds of films and thousands of TV programmes and never seemed to have more than a couple of sentences to speak(apart from two TV series); look out for his crumple faced fleeting appearances in films like REACH FOR THE SKY, PASSPORT TO PIMLICO, TH...

Re: THE ARSENAL STADIUM MYSTERY

I remember the film being on TV years ago. Leslie Banks starred as the inspector. Banks was a major British film star in those days and also starred in a 1942 film called WENT THE DAY WELL? written by Graham Green which had a scene where a group of "invading" Germans herd the villagers int...

Re: THE ARSENAL STADIUM MYSTERY

You`re probably right there Brian. Two chants I remember from my "youth" - LUCKY ARSENAL & ONE NIL TO THE ARSENAL. When I first moved down to London, Arsenal won the double with George Graham and "Scot" Bob Wilson in the side. I worked with a chap who supported Liverpool beca...

TABLE TOPPERS

OK, we`re only 2 games in but when was the last time the 2 Edinburgh clubs topped the top division?

Re: CRYSTAL PALACE

You`re absolutely correct, the Cystal Palace book is an absolute gem and a snip @ £1.48 from an online second hand bookseller. I`d advise everyone to get a copy. Queen`s Park, of course, made an additional appearance @ the Palace - newspaper headline should have read "QUEEN`S GO TO THE PALACE&q...

Re: CRYSTAL PALACE

Thank you both for the very interesting posts. I`ve sent off to a book website for the book for just over a pound. Queen`s Park played Corinthians seven times @ the Crystal Palace grounds, the first a 2-1 home win on 26th February 1923 and the last a 4-2 Spiders win on 9th April 1932. In all, Queen`...

CRYSTAL PALACE

Can anyone help as to when the Crystal Palace grounds including the football field in Sydenham stopped being used for football? The Crystal Palace itself I know burned down in 1936; my parents lived in New Eltham at the time & watched the sky lit by the flames. I guess that concluded the Sydenha...

Re: MINOR INTERNATIONALS

Hearty thank you for theseTribacolour! I I have the Dublin attendance as 21,360 so it might be dyslexia kicking in: I have the date as 28/4/1940. Just needed to know Gilmour`s opponents so full team not so important. I`m only too well aware that Gilmour is the last Spiders to tug a blue jersey over ...

MINOR INTERNATIONALS

Can anyone help with teams, scorers & referee of the Eire XI vs. Scotland match in Dublin in April 1940? Also Queen`s Park`s Jimmy Gilmour played in a Scottish semi professional international(bit of an oxymoron for an amateur) in the 1980s; can anyone help with this game`s details? Thanking you ...
