  1. Tommy Younger before my time but I remember Sammy Kean. He was in charge for a season and a half. Finished mid table the first season, then John Prentice was brought in midway through the second season to rescue us as we looked like getting relegated. The saving grace for Sammy Kean with me is that he brought Johnny Graham to the Club. For a similar abysmal record to where we are now look no further than Billy Little. 77-79. Two seasons in the bottom league and looking like staying there until John Haggart was brought in.
  2. Worked at the Club during Bobby`s spell there and can confirm everything you`ve said. Really nice, unassuming and friendly guy. The players called him "Inspector gadget" as he was always into the latest tech. As part of that, he got interested in photography. After a game at Pittodrie, he walked down to where I was sitting on the team bus just as it left and started enquiring about cameras. When the bus pulled in to the Stadium 2 hours later, he was still standing there asking questions!!
  3. Yes, Steve Lovell &Graham Barrett scored that day. The next game there that season was a 1-1 draw with Dean Holden scoring.
  4. For me that`s the problem for both Keena and Ruth. They aren`t getting a great supply in and around the box. As long as that continues it wouldn`t much matter who you played as striker they would be starved of service and look bad. Hopeful that will improve if we can keep Williamson and Morrison fit.
  5. I can just imagine the big man pi**ing himself at that!!
  6. Noticed a thread on Twitter about games that had late winners and while the 2 Rangers games and the Hibs game are obvious contenders, there was also this one against Hearts that barely gets a mention that had us taking the lead then losing it and Mark Stewart coming back in the final minutes to seal it.
  7. That depends on the reason he`s not getting a game. If a manager thinks a player would fit well into the style of play he adopts for his team, then he would jump at the chance of signing that guy..especially if he really shouldn`t be parked on the bench with the team he`s at.
  8. It`s on the website....it`s Keena and Nesbit that are modelling it.
  9. If it`s the one I`m thinking of, Ruth was there and just failed to connect but there was nobody on the other side of the box for a tap in.
  10. Sadly no, it was the "Tynecastle faithful".
  11. What I would give to be going to watch that team on Saturday!!!
  12. That was undoubtedly a golden period for them with Latapy and Yorke but short lived. I`m referring to the fact he got 99 caps over the period from 2002-13 and yet couldn`t get a game with a top club anywhere.
