Thread Name: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
well, i know it is not in the same league as the great liverpool team (i enjoyed the spurs game - i don't think i've ever seen a winger play so far up the pitch as full-back andy robertson that night - and that against top opposition (well toppish) in a tight game) but i went up to dundee (from cumbria) on tuesday to see partick thistle at dundee united. i got the supporters bus (the only 2 women on the bus collected the money and organised the draw- with the unspoken assumption that the relatively feckless men weren't to be trusted with the purse strings) from a friend's house in milngavie. well, i won't dwell too much on the game - (we played well and lost 1-0) but i had some great highlights to my trip - the joys of lower league football. i sat beside an older (70s?)couple who were very enthusiastically supporting the jags, and very friendly. when i asked about the accent 'braw, penners, braw laddie! turns out they were dundee fans who come out wherever possible to support whoever are playing against rivals dundee united. all good - another great day at the football spoiled only by the football. we got back to friend's house latish - a small dram, roe deer in the garden and jags bottom of the league
