Was told today about Craig Thompson being photographed with hearts fans doing the 5-1. Flound the image on kickback. Can't believe this man can be so naive to be caught like this. What would the SFA think?

That's my thought as well. I don't doubt that he's enjoying the kids making the gesture (although not as much as he enjoyed last year's result) but he does have the sense not to join in.

Y'see, here's the thing about the 5-1 hand gesture;

Getting the referee in a photo with the 5-1s just goes to show how tainted a victory it was for them.

It's now evident that to achieve their cup victory they've had to bankrupt their club. They had the chance to save their club but the fans didn't protest when they signed Beattie instead of cutting their wage bill and making inroads into their debt, they didn't do anything when the wages first started being missed, they didn't do anything when winding up orders started coming into play and they're still not making the effort to save their club despite the dire straits that they are in now.

It's like spending 13,983,816 on every single combination of lottery numbers and celebrating because you won the 2m jackpot - totally illogical.

It's almost as if they don't want a club if they can't live in this fantasy world where they are in fact a 'big team'. Deluded to the end, the bubble has burst and now they're selling less season tickets than the 'wee team', unable to beat the 'wee team' and have no future unlike the 'wee team'.

Let them do their 5-1 hand gestures, it's all they have left. Plus if they're doing a 5-1 they cannae bake any more scones.

Not as bad as i thought, even if it is real he's not doing the 5-1 himself. It's just a bunch of geeky kids having a laugh, I doubt CT would have known what was going on.

Thompson is still an erse and a **** ref but this picture doesn't mean he's one of them.

As I've said earlier, if that was the Old Firm we were talking about, it would probably be considered as a major incident and the person concerned would most likely require police protection.

We need our referees to be above this kind of thing and if it's a real photo then he should be asked to explain himself.

I'm not 100% convinced that it is genuine though.

I don't doubt for a second that if it was the Old Firm we were talking about it would be kicking off big time right now, but that's because that lot are a bunch of uptight conspiracy mongering erses.

That cup finals is long gone now, it felt awful then and it feels awful now, but nothing is going to change it. It doesn't make it any worse for me because that ****er of a referee has been caught out by a bunch of bairns. He couldn't see Blacks assault on Griffiths in the final, why would anyone expect him to notice a few hands in the air at a photo opportunity? The only thing that surprises me is that it's taken so long for a yam to get a photo with him while doing their wee party piece.

Fairly poor judgement on his part to allow himself to be caught in this situation, considering his controversial role in the result.

It's not as if there is a lone boy in the back ground doing the 5-1 - the photo is posed and he is standing there smiling. He is fully aware of what is happening around him

As said by a previous poster, would this ignored or laughed of if this was related to the old firm?

Am I missing something here?

Thomson has obviously been asked to go in a picture with some snivelling school boys and they have given it the 5-1 when the photo has been taken.

He's not doing the 5-1 so he may not have known this was going to happen. He was probably well aware of what they were going to do but in his defence he will just say all he thought he was doing was getting a photo with some fans. He's not really done anything wrong.

Folk have to stop peeing their pants evertime one of these sort of photos appear. We'd be all over it if we had won in the circumstances they did. Let them have their fun, they might end up paying the ultimate price for "the greatest day of their lives".

If this photo helps the yams get over the fact that their season tickets are now worthless,the money from the 'pledges' is gone, they are starting next season minus 15 points with a squad full of school weans, leading to relegation before the inevitable liquidation. Then i for one am prepared to turn the other cheek.

I'm not really interested in the conspiracies and paranoia of old firm fans, and certainly don't want to use their behaviour as a measure of what is normal.

IMO, we as fans need to be above this kind of thing. It's maybe poor judgement to stand for a photo (given the hassle he's likely to get as a result) but he's done absolutely nothing wrong.
