Re: The Bobby Walker Suite at Tynecastle

Great to see the 19th century boys are starting to get some recognition. I often think they are out of sight and out of mind in these considerations.

Who is the Bobby Walker look-a-like?

Renton's "Perfect 8" Renton's 8 stands forever as the mightiest, proper old fashioned, no nonsense, most well deserved Cup win. In fact, I'm so impressed I've singled it out here to be gazed upon and admired. R1 Sat Sep 03 1887 Union (Dumbarton) [a] W6-0 R2 Sat Sep 24 1887 Dumbarton Athletic [h] W4...

Scottish Cup Winners 1874 to 2013

My insatiable appetite for Partick Thistle stats led me to look at the Scottish Cup this week. In 1921, Thistle won the Cup after a herculean 11 game run. I wanted to know if this was a record and was going to post an SFAQ. However, you learn SO much more when you do it yourself. So that’s what I di...

Re: John Flanagan - date of birth?

A small step…

The Thistle match programme v Dundee 22nd March 1969 gives his age as 25. If this and the Herald report of 24th October 1970 are correct then his birth date could theoretically fall somewhere between 23rd March 1943 and 23rd October 1943, making him most likely to be 70 when he died.
