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 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`...
