Dt insp.Jim Taggart ,after an impossibly gruesome murder in the Partick/Firhill district,once remarked that it was murder at Firhill every week.

Is the soccer any more palatable these days?

As to the "quality" of the fitba...................

I am, sadly, a lapsed Jag as I live a long way from Glasgow now.

Back in the day though I was home and away for many years.

I managed to catch the Ramsden Cup Final on BBC Alba ( Ironic that Scotland's community based ( diddy team ) competition is sponsored by a Pawnbroker )

But I digress.

The quality was there for all to see. No Alice bands, gloves or leggings.

Big ginger guys called "Shug", "Wullie" and "Bawbag"

The colour of the players was mainly pale blue.

A missed penalty, a head butt,a red card, an equalizer and a pitch invasion all in the last minute of extra time.

Firhill for thrills indeed !


Dear pedants................I know that the game was played in Livingston but it doesn't rhyme with "thrills"................ok?

but then you had a guy called Chic who did provide a few thrills.

Only game I ever watched in Greater Glasgow was a reserve match between Clydebank and Rangers at Kilbowie .circa 1994.

Was fairly traumatic as I was hemmed in by some very non Rangers fans who scared me shitless.

Was a decent game .Few big names on the Rangers team

Second biggest team in Glasgow now! Sevco may be heading into oblivion with the team formerly known as Rangers.

Lol. I love it when Sevconians try and pass themselves off as exiled Jags. It doesn't take long for the true colours to shine through...

In reply to coinneach: When Rangers first went into liquidation I asked a mate who e was going to support now that Rangers don't exist. He's still in denial. How many sevconians does it take to change a light bulb?!
Answer 4!! one to change it and the other 3 to convince everyone it's the same light bulb!!

well, i did support rangers for a bit in primary school, though that was mainly peer pressure, and i came to my senses... so i'd like to think that didnt count

In reply to Ian Black:

yes, be a shame for us to be promoted just as they pull the shutters down and turn the lights out on scottish football...

said only partly in jest, sadly. difficult to see what the future for the game is, astonishing acheivement for celtic to get to the last 16 of the CL given the overall state of the game

cheers

In reply to no_more_scotch_eggs: Last 16 in the present climate with all the financial constrictions was immense, and despite the banter, I for one am sorry to see Rangers self destruct.

In reply to no_more_scotch_eggs:

I don't know that it's as bad as the ( mainly rangers - minded ) press make out.

10,000 gate for Thistle v Morton the other week and Ramsden cup final sold out at Livingston.

The Herald online sports page today had rangers losing to peterhead ( 3rd division ) before Thistle winning the title.

Plenty of support for the diddy teams still!

They had to be punished but I think long term it'll do the game great harm.

In reply to Ian Black:

And so ,I would think ,the majority of forward thinking folk.

The 'Game' is in a sorry state and I can only see it sliding further.

I see on the BBC that Celtic won the league today.

I honestly didn`t know they were playing today ,or indeed whom they were playing.Zero interest.

Changed days.

Few short years ago ,I lived and breathed Celtic and their history.Still read the history bit (George Connelly book atm)

Without Rangers ,the jobs f**ked.

In reply to Ian Black:

yep, damned either way. they had to be sent to the 3rd div to keep the integrity of the game, in my view. but its tough medicine for a sick patient (ie scottish football as a whole).

the restructure has been rejected, but it had a whiff of shuffling deckchairs on the titanic about it anyway. though not sure what the solution should be, thats the 64000 dollar question!
