Guess which club is now 150 years 1 day & 24 minutes old. Won`t be too long now before the European Cup is bedecked in black & white hoops.

I missed the 4 page spread in yesterday's Daily Rag, was it as in depth as their usual reporting?

Just noticed this was my 1000th post. Maybe that'll be in the Rag tomorrow!

Don`t get the Daily McCoist down here but would imagine it`s of the cut out & throw away variety. Queen`s will be back to their black & white hoops this coming season with the blue & grey sesquecentennial retro one consigned to collectors` cupboards.

Didn't expect eight page pull outs in all the papers but as far as I could see not one thought that the anniversary merited so much as a mention.

And we're still in the blue tops this season Leatherstocking, back to the black and white hoops in 20018/19.

Ah, thank you qpsnapper. We dodn`t get a lot of Queen`s Park coverage in sunny downtown Oxfordshire so when I saw the piece on the QP website for a new hooped jersey displaying "1867-2017" I thought it was for 2017 NOT 2018.

Forrest, and qpsnapper - at least Scotland on Sunday and the Herald did mention this most-special birthday. As we might exect from the type of paper bowler-hatted Hampden chaps are supposed to favour.
