About this deal
Drums are beaten mercilessly, sometimes for the full 90 minutes, often held aloft or sometimes taped securely to a seat to maximise the beat. With 19 minutes remaining the Rugby Park men finally found the target, thanks to the bit of luck that deserted them in the first half. A Clarissa Larisey double, with further strikes from Caitlin Hayes, Chloe Craig, Jacynta and Lucy Ashworth-Clifford sealed a disappointing evening for the women of steel. The fact that the only games we struggle to sell out these days are the games against the Old Firm tells you a lot. if the guy that uses the megaphone reads this, do us a favour and stop pressing the daft wee 'nee naw' button all the time.
Even in there best ever league season they are still tin pot, from the football they play to the fans. Although his cross was possibly intended for Van Veen, it found Dean Cornelius, who took a first touch before volleying the ball just beyond Walker’s right-hand post. I know the players can lift the fans, but sometimes the fans need to get behind the players and lift them. I don’t think there was a Hearts fan that attended Tynecastle last night that expected anything from that game last night, most just went as a sense of duty, I know I did.Not much of a fan of them but they look like theyre having a good time so perhaps its envy, fair amount of cringe involved though, dont expect much from anybody on a freezing cold wednesday night after going a goal down. The club’s young talisman Stevie May scored an audacious chipped goal and spun off to the lower East Stand to milk the applause from young boys feverishly waving flags in a style more commonly seen at much bigger clubs in Italy or France. On the back of two successive away wins the Steelmen made a confident start and within two minutes Van Veen juggled the ball away from Lewis Mayo before his left foot shot forced Sam Walker into an early save. Celtic continued to threaten the Motherwell penalty area, and quickly found their sixth of the afternoon.
Jack McGarry, Lyle Fleming and Fraser Johnstone had been using a variety of items as drums at Fir Park, including the seats and an old drawer. Yes there were more pissed up lads in the Shed, but let's be honest if we were 2 down to one of the OF the only atmosphere was pinging coins at corner takers and singing your going home in a Red Cross (***) ambulance.We should have moved well before that but it was quite enjoyable till that point, but we learned - stay away from the drum would be me advice, don't expect to be guaranteed your seat (ER for example, if you are lower tier behind the goal then you will be in a bit of an atmosphere, and there will be plenty seats to move to).
Now because of previous trouble, and the unfortunate Hillsborough incident we are seated and hemmed into smaller areas. I said the Ultras moving after the first game had affected the atmosphere, they are too far away from those who would join in. In an act of brattish provocation the FCU chose as their colours dark blue and white, the traditional colours of rivals Dundee. It was not really a surprise when the Fir Park men opened the scoring after 14 minutes but it was a shocker from a Kilmarnock point of view. The kids were delighted, but I don’t know if the fans sitting round about them are going to be so happy!I have watched my team evolve over a lifetime and misbehaviour has been an undercurrent in every decade, from the skinhead era of the Mental Pack to the casual mayhem of the Mainline Baby Squad. like the Christmas Eve game at Tannadice and my old man is choking on a blue flare at the back of the stand (blue FFS). The violence was more targeted, often away from the grounds and the supporters’ buses, but no less sudden and chaotic as battles – some planned and others sporadic – erupted at railway stations and in city centres. In modern football nothing irritates me more than the naysayers and tooth suckers of the quiet stands moaning about the ultras, as if they grew up in some sheltered nostalgia where the football was magical and the fans brought innocent colour to the proceedings.
