If I could think of anything to say
about Partick Thistle,
this would be the thread to say it.

Unfortunately I just said all of it.

excuse me! there are many things to say about partick thistle - though i suppose it is a quiet pleasure/torment just kept to myself and the select few who know that maryhill is wonderful. though i live in cumbria now and we just got relegated i find i have bought a season ticket for this year. can't wait to get back to firhill for more of the same.

(one interesting fact is that the jags have won 8 of our last 48 games and the manager has kept his job. i'm not sure how i feel about this)

I bought a little flat in Caird Drive in Partick in the sixties. Very friendly and cheerful area of Glasgow.
Loved Maryhill and Hillhead. Actually I miss the atmosphere - very lively places!

it's great - i would urge all mudcatters to buy a partick thistle season ticket and spend saturday mornings wandering about between kelvingrove art gallery and the botanic gardens. lunch and a couple of beers at the spectacularly decorated Oran Mor pub then a 20 minute walk to firhill and all the joys of watching Partick Thistle.
(as an optional extra you can get a £13 return on a virtually empty train from carlisle and listen to Be Good Tanyas on the way up. yes it's an ocd thing)

Senoufou sounds as if you were near
to where Robert Carlyle was being raised
by his divorced father.

But I guess he was a little young
to be in your classroom.
(no offense intended)

Although based in Macduff our Spring Water factory who produce MacB Water sponsored Partick Thistle for a couple of seasons a few years ago. Last time I was up there (about a year ago) there was still a signed Partick Thistle shirt hanging up in the boardroom.

Yes, keberoxu, you're quite right, Robert Carlyle lived in Maryhill, but although I rented a room in Hillhead, (Belmont Street) then lived in my flat in Partick, I taught over in Dennistoun (Bluevale Primary then Alexandra Parade Primary). I got the number 1 bus along to Duke Street.

Oh this is making me 'homesick' for Glasgae!

I once went to a football match between Celtic and Rangers. A bit hairy to say the least!

I have been in a pub in Dumfries and Galloway when there was an 'old firm' match on. That was quite hairy as well but what amazed me is that as soon as the match was over, those supporting Celtic (It was primarily a Rangers pub) were welcomed back into the fold with no acrimony on either side. During the game they were at each others throats but when the final whistle blew, they were buying each other drinks. Nice to see really.

That sounds quite civilised Dave.

At the Rangers/Celtic match, the spectators were weeing in empty cans of McEwans heavy and lobbing them over towards the opposing supporters.
There were lots of fights breaking out and some vicious threats etc.

I was on my own and quite scared. I supported Celtic, but didn't wear anything to show that. There were mounted Police (or should I say 'Polis'?) and ones with dogs, and the atmosphere was so charged it was a real war zone.
I hurried away at the end and made my escape!

Hi

I lived in Inverness for 4 years and saw many games Before caledonia merge with neighbours ( deadly enemies. I never witnessed any hooliganism etc at these games.

Over the Xmas New Year periods I went to Glasgow and went to watch an "Auld Firm " match. The games were tough and (in my view ) dangerous. Especially after the game.

One New Year I went to watch Aberdeen play Dundee.It was at Pitodrie; Aberdeen's ground. We arrived a little late and we had to climb up a narrow ramp. We were met by streams of urine as many in the crowd urinated using a rolled newspaper. By the time the p*** reached the bottom it was like a river. But didn't see any unpleasant activity during or after the match.

I love the Scots and still have many friends I made up there.

Me too Mike. My sister still lives there (near Dundee) and has invited us up to stay with her again this summer. Easy flight Norwich to Edinburgh.

She'd be booking us seats for the Pitlochry theatre in Perthshire, and visiting some nice little coastal towns along the Fife coast. She also knows all the foodie restaurants in Perth.

Also, the Edinburgh Festival would be on, and she likes to go to some of the Fringe stuff (stand-up comedians and so on)

Very tempted!

Hi Sen

You should think strongly about going to the Edinburgh Festival.

We went up to Perth 2 years ago and enjoyed it immensely. Plenty of good restaurants around. We then went to Edinburgh and spent all day sight seeing. We got on one of the many sight-seer buses. Great, they also give you very good ideas about eating etc. We tried some of the Fringe shows. Excellent.
In the the evening we went to the Castle to watch the tattoo. Great show from several acts from various countries.Hilarious Dutch contribution.

The last Piper solo in a spotlight while the rest was in darkness brought a lump to my throat....but then I am an ex serviceman.

Regards Mike

Ps On Monday I Emailed the Healthier You organisers to request what is happening re my referral.

Hello again Mike!

I was at Edinburgh Uni in my (far-off) youth, and spent many a fabulous time at the Tattoo. The lone piper used to make me sob.

I took my husband to Edinburgh for the first time quite recently, and he was enchanted too.
It really is a lovely city.

I like the whole of Scotland. Magical place!

When I first came down to England to teach, I had quite a strong Scottish accent. I now speak Broad Norfolk. But I started in W London and spoke with rather a cockney twang. Even my French has become 'contaminated' with an African singsong lilt copied from my husband.
I seem to be a veritable sponge when it comes to speech...
