Glad they put something out. Again, more like it’s been done on the back of other posts. But anyway, better late than never! 

Absolutely spot on, the greatest manager in world football, undoubtedly, and he played for us for 4 years!!

Not a bad goal scoring record either!

I would suggest these stats would be worthy of any ex player, hitting that milestone, getting a bit recognition from the club but in this instance a little bit more given what he went on to achieve.

I seen him play for Falkirk and Ayr. He go sent off for one or the other, my memory fails at this point. I'm quite sure it was for use of his infamous elbows.

He got sent off for Falkirk.

There is a classic photo of him sheepishly walking off the pitch whilst getting the death stare from Willie Cunningham.

I have the picture in my head of your blue shirt with white oxters, as was the fashion at the time.

Mind the 7-1 game?

 Agree totally regarding the state of our media at the moment. "Bainsfordbairn" will confirm that as I chew his ear off constantly about it!! 😂

Edited to add that I`m not suggesting "Bainsfordbairn" is in any way part of the problem, far from it, very efficient at what he does. (Hope that keeps the lawyers off my back)🤞😂

I haven’t had my ears chewed for a good few weeks now, even if at one point it was incessant. Have you finally given up? 😆

You know my feelings. I agree with you about a few things but I have no power to change them other than making suggestions.  And the two lads who work part-time in the media roles have become friends so I’m not going to criticise them. Particularly as I know both do more than they get paid for. Which is a common trait amongst background staff. As an example, when I spoke to Jamie on Tuesday at the Junior Bairns event he said he’d told all the staff to take this week off, yet stories are still going up.

Was that against Airdrie?. My memory is of Broomfield, midweek and the early 70s shirt design.

I dare say he got sent off more than once though.

Aberdeen at home if I remember right
