Re: A Minutes Silence @ 1pm
I was at scbool still at the time, walked out of class and heard someone in my year laughing about it. He wasn't laughing for long once he got a sore puss.



Horrible horrible day.

Re: A Minutes Silence @ 1pm
Very little publicity nor sympathy from the media or other fans.
And that's why I have F'ck-all sympathy for any of the Huns now.
And when Nimmo looks back, I wonder of he can convince himself that he did the best he could to keep us alive?

Was a bad day but I wouldnt get overly dramatic about it, not as if its on par with a family member dying.

Re: A Minutes Silence @ 1pm
to some it was, and still is, akin to a family bereavment. I'd be carefull about making flippant remarks around them.

I look forward to opening a bottle the day Mr Barr pegs it. I assume I'll have to wait longer for Mr Nimmo.

Re: A Minutes Silence @ 1pm
Yes it was a very sad day - I can remember it well.

However it was followed some weeks later that we had bought out Clydebank and would be reinstated as Airdrie United. That certainly made life a lot better!!

Sometimes we criticise our owner but he brought us back to life again!!

Re: A Minutes Silence @ 1pm
blair nimmo, couldnt wait to get rid off us, so his beloved falkirk would remain in the 1st div and they were the one club that directly benefited from us going out of business.

Whilst I have nothing but contempt for Blair Nimmo, I very much doubt a decision of that magnitude, football club or any other business, would be made, with the over-riding factor being the he supported a club who benefited from our demise

Re: A Minutes Silence @ 1pm
The only way to show is we will not be beaten is to get our proper name back. Minutes silence is a bit OTT right enough- what about a beat Polomint up minute instead? I am all for that and would gladly contribute!

If I was the overly-sensitive grass that some on here would have you believe, I'd have reported you for that remark! And the assertion that I keep mentioning Celtic is bunkum, and only exists within the realms of your fevered imagination.

That's rubbish about Septic, you have mentioned it 1690 times and someone else said you recently got annoyed because someone had done 9 in a row.
