Programme: Rangers vs St Mirren (Scottish Cup Semi Final – 1983)
Charting St Mirrens many, many, many failures in the early 80s when it came to cup semi finals would take a blog in itself. We lost two Scottish Cup semi finals to Celtic and Aberdeen respectively after Billy Thomson made blunders and this one to The Rangers (possibly after a replay?) with a goal that didn’t go anywhere near crossing the line. Still, time has healed most wounds, and you can at least enjoy the fact we got some lovely days out and some nice programmes to look at. Interestingly, the programme from the ghost goal game is a bit of a fizzer, but you can enjoy this magical coming together of all the things we’ve talked out – burds, weans, footballers getting free tat, family snaps…right down the bottom of the page, you can enjoy presented without further comment the artwork that is Bobby Russell gets a kitchen….
