Re: Oldest Surviving Scottish Internationalists

I`m seriously considering withdrawing from this website; this thread is making me feel ancient. Players who I watched when they were quite young are now shuffling off this mortal coil with disturbing rapidity.

Re: New site administrator - Andy Mitchell

Thank you Andy, you`ve rescued a valuable source and a scene of sense in a morass of crass nonsense.

ORKNEY-CRAIGMYLE CUP

I came across the 1st Round draw for this competition of 1st September 1931. Was this a one-off competition or was it regular?

HJULIAN

Celtic played a Swedish goalkeeper in 1925 called Hjulian. Does anyone know anything about him?

GEORGE SINCLAIR

Does anyone have any details of a testimonial match for George Sinclair played between East of Scotland & West of Scotland in 1920?

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 into a church...

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 because he`d been @ univeris...
