i left Greenock in 1976 mate, it is a poisonous (sorry) place indeed, to be on the outside looking in now is quite sad.

Fair Play at FIFA?

Why thank you, I am genuinely touched.

Please don’t let it get you down too much. At the end of the day, when all is said and done, and there are no clichés left, without the paying customer it’s all just blokes playing football in big empty stadia with no-one watching on TV.

The fans really do have all the power. That’s the thing about being “just a customer” if you take your custom elsewhere then there is no business. The fans’ real power is over the business side, not over the football side.

The same goes for the papers, the radio and the TV. For all of the so called journalists and commentators. Without us they have nothing. No paying customer means no profits and no wages. We are football and they al know it.

And I did genuinely laugh out loud at chippy, quality.

Would that be pretty much what big Jock said; ‘without the fans……’

Thought so.

……Dunfermline in my opinion are, or should be one of the mainstays of the Scottish game. Their history for a provincial side is thoroughly commendable……..


If my memory serves me right I remember the Parrs beating West Brom over two legs in the 1st round of the old Fair Cities Cup (’67?), West Brom had Jeff Astle et al and in the ascendency after winning the cup the previous year in the old English 1st Division.

Dunfermline won 1-0 at home and drew 0-0 away………..An outstanding result for an underrated team….Happy to be corrected guys.

It is going to happen jonyod as much as you, I and every other fair minded fan thinks that this is unpalatable.

Scottish football, imho will have to take huge steps back before it travels forward in a positive direction, we are stareing into the abyss while the Yorkie Pied Piper tries to dictate policy and influences football politics to a compliant and submissive governing body.

It has to change for goodness sake…..I teach students and I tell them as my Dad told me…..If you cheat, then you are only cheating yourself.
