Can tell the age of posters pretty quickly with the teams they post here. Very insightful.

Correct, was thinking the same myself.

I was going to include Syd Puddefoot in my team but decided to put him on the bench instead!

Any others?

Some great players being mentioned but surprised no one included Ivo Den Bieman, even on the bench…

Was just thinking the same thing. He was going to be in my team alongside yogi. Big Ivo was class for us in both spells, also made players around him play better. Big Kevin Christie was never the same after Ivo left

One of the best defensive guys in the NB I’ve had the pleasure of watching.

Rennie, Tiger, Kennedy,Baillie,Baptie, Hughes, Crunchie, Stainrod, Johnny Graham, Tam Young, Craigie Watson (obviously).

As far as I know most of these guys are still alive.

 

 

 

 

 

You're auld.

Baillie, Graham and Watson have all passed. Not sure about Tam Young, but still around as far as I know.

My first game (as far as I can make out) was v Airdrie at Brockville, Craigie Watson scoring twice!

No surprise there, a re-run of Kilmarnock V Falkirk. 
 

St Johnstone look bigger, stronger and quicker than Inverness. I don't know what it is, it could just be tiredness from Inverness.

Just much more quality in the St Johnstone team, remember it's Sean Welsh playing in the middle of the park for Inverness. Murray Davidson's having a field day in there.
