    guess who I support

    Morton is clearly the choice of any right thinking person, and so far as I have a team, they are it.

    DOI grew up near the Watt College.

    Do you like cabbages?

    And getting caught in the rain?

    That Morton Aberdeen game will stick long in my memory, think it was Billy Dodds who scored a hat trick for the Dons. The singing from the fans was brutal. The Morton fans mentioned more than once the inter relationship with sheep and lack of a father in a particular tune that lasted something like 120mins.

    Sorry it’s Arbroath whose ground is right by the sea.

    Joshvegas yes I could, been to Montrose’s ground, must be brutal playing there in a winter gale, Brechin City is not a city 😂

    Went to see Montrose years ago with a few mates – 168 in the crowd against Queens Park, I think?
    Guy on the turnstiles let us pop out to the social club for a few pints at half time. 🙂 It was ace.

    The visiting goalie was called Gary and we heckled him unmercifully for the entire second half, man was he pissed off.

    Bloody marvelous.

    So yeah, Montrose. Still got a scarf somewhere….🙂

    I remember watching a linesman at Falkirk run up and down for 35 mins with steak pie bits all over his back for flagging a Partick goal as offside, boy he got shit for the rest of the game. He was about 3 feet from the fans in the stand.

    Whilst quality might have been questionable the day out was always fun. That was enough for me

    Cappielow might as well be (possibly apocryphal rumour had it that they couldn’t fit under soil heating as it flooded at high tide when it was raining).

    East Fife too. Bayview Stadium.

    Sadly yes it is apocryphal but still a good story (and quite plausible given the climate over there) so what the hell, let’s call it true!

    Fun Morton fact. Cappielow is one of the very few remaining stadiums that still has a wooden main stand.

    Any reason not to pick Hibs as my Scottish team,

    “Hibs’d it” is a thing. 😆 Consider your choice carefully.

    Lewis Morgan April 2018, by then a Celtic player loaned back to St Mirren then followed Jack Ross, now Hibs manager, to Sunderland on loan. Thankfully I got the relevance back to hibs

    Never understood having a team from another country, I’d rather go watch the juniors than the EPL tbh.

    Me too, been to a few, good laugh. Though the juniors isn’t really a thing anymore, they’ve all resigned and joined the league en masse, so fully integrated into the pyramid when things start back up. Tempted to pick a team at that level myself and take a passing interest, see how it develops.

    Think the junior cup with remain a thing.

    One of my friends from uni followed Dumbarton. During their famed run of being bottom of three different divisions in three seasons, he reckoned he saw them away to Queen’s Park. In Hampden. With a crowd of about 150.

    Think the junior cup with remain a thing.

    Aye, aw the Ayrshire teams have bizarrely chosen to stay junior, i think they just want to keep it to themselves, basically guaranteeing the the Talbot will win the junior cup every year 😆

    We’re doing this wrong.

    Close down all the football grounds, all games to be played on waste ground with no policing or referees. Then it would be proper fitba. There may be the odd riot…

    Now why would this be a good idea?

    Just think of all those lovingly maintained grass pitches going to waste now, but we have a solution.

    Yes, they would make lovely grass velodromes for the re-introduction of grass track racing. The bookies will love it. 🙂

    Otherwise support Ross County, decent lads.

    Scotland has football teams?

    Yes, and they used to be pretty good. First British winners of the European Cup, but you’ll know that already. Top English sides were packed with Scots in the past.

    Only above the Highland line.*

    Below that it has sectarian bigot clubs who hate each other because of what happened in Ireland 300 years ago. They use football as an excuse. They are a pox on Scotland.

    The Proclaimers aren’t enough?

    Fling in a bit of bigotry for good measure.

    Largs never, we’ll see how long that lasts.

    Gies peace ya gimp. Notice how it’s only youse that aren’t really interested in fitba bringing it up and ruining the thread…..

    I also nearly spat out my cornflakes at the suggestion here that captain oppressed thinks it’s odd that people identify with a bit of history. FFS, a bit of self awarness puuuulleeezze! 😆

    Also, yer derision of everything below the highland boundary is basically a sectarian comment btw. 😆

    Celtic/The Rangers – two cheeks of the same arse.

    Hibs/Hearts – diet versions of the same thing.

    Oh, and Hibs always Hibs it!

    So what shoulder do you boys carry that chip on, left or right?

    Interesting thread drift.

    So what shoulder do you boys carry that chip on, left or right?

    Depends, whit school did ye go tae?

    Anyway, I still think the Proclaimers thing is less forgivable than any bigotry, at least the latter has the excuse of having been ingrained for generations beforehand.

    I moved to Scotland 20 years ago and despite being fairly into my football i have never been able to get that link with a club , been to a few Saint Mirren games and a couple of thistle games .

    Got two young boys now and in nearly everything i hope to let them choose their own paths but no chance they are supporting the old firm , along with all the bigotry i just dont see how being a Celtic fan can be fun at the moment , there is no jeopardy . you turn up every week and if you dont win 3 nil your disappointed .

    From what i see from the guys at work the Killmarnock   fans seem to have the most fun with it .

    Never knew that about Largs SK.

    Oh, I love the proclaimers btw, phenomenal songwriters.
