The Benchman enjoys a good sing-song but would appreciate it if other supporters did not remind him of a certain semi-final result.

A WEE REMINDER: The Jags fans had an impressive repertoire of songs and chants on Saturday and some certainly were funny. The advice to the Morton manager to keep his mouth shut was timely, but we didn’t need any reminding of the semi-final - “three nill and you ‘messed’ it up” as they so eloquently put it.


AGE VS EXPERIENCE: The t-shirts worn by the Thistle players certainly caused a stir and at one point, some thought the barb was targeted at Falkirk. It was later explained that the intended target was the team from Greenock- and their manager in particular.

LAST WEEK: Did you recognise Alfie Conn? The brothers with the impressive scoring achievements were Gerry and Joe Baker. Although both had broad Scots accents, Gerry won caps for USA , while Joe played for England.

AFTER THE THE LORD MAYOR’S SHOW: Tuesday night’s game against Dumbarton was a classic case. The effects of that epic encounter against Hibs were there for all to see. Dumbarton were fresh and keen, while Falkirk looked jaded and stale. The performance against Thistle was much better. What a difference three days can make.

TEASER: Which former Scotland star was manager of Cowdenbeath for ten days in December 2000 but never took charge of the team in a single game?

MYSTERY PIC: Can you find two members of the Falkirk cup-winning side of 1957 in this Rangers team?

THIRD PLACE: All that’s left to play for is third spot and who knows- it might be important depending on what comes out of the porridge that is league reconstruction. Add a semi final and it’s not a bad season considering the start.
