People You Associate with Championship Clubs

Recommended Posts

Taken from a thread from a few years back:

http://www.pieandbovril.com/forum/index.php/topic/142124-people-you-associate-with-first-division-clubs/?hl=+ian%20+rankin

Which personality, footballer or otherwise, do you immediately associate with each of the Championship clubs?

Alloa - Paul Hartley. My main memory of Alloa is the successive promotions they attained under the direction of this former Hibee (I think he played for some other Edinburgh team too, but their name escapes me.)

Dumbarton - Ian Murray. An icon to many Hibs fans, but I now associate him strongly with Dumbarton. Felt a bit odd playing against his team last season, but I hear that he's now moved off to some other team so it shouldn't be a worry any more...

Falkirk - Yogi Hughes. Seemed like he was with the Bairns forever, and - all round - you could call his time there a success. Didn't manage a Scottish Cup win with them, mind you.

Morton - Derek Collins. Apologies to the Morton fans, but I don't know your club all that well. I do recall having heard, however, that this former Hibee played with you in all four professional leagues in Scotland.

Hibs - Keith Wright. Yup, more than the Famous Five, Turnbull's Tornadoes or wee Tom Farmer, this is the first face I think of when I think of the Hibees. A hero for me when I was growing up, especially when he handed me a signed football and shirt on my 7th birthday.

Livingston - Paul Lambert. I remember being quite interested in how his managerial career would go once he retired. It didn't look too good after his tenure with Livi...

Queen of the South - Derek Lyle. Having only paid much attention to QOS last season, the only person who comes to mind is Lyle and his array of cracking goals.

Raith Rovers - Turnbull Hutton. A hero to every right-thinking football fan in Scotland. 'Nuff said.

The Rangers - Fat Sally. Dismal manager for a dismal beginning to life for Scotland's newest club. Special mention to Jorg Albertz, who I would have chosen if the Old Rangers were still in existence. Terrifying member of the opposition to play against.

St Mirren - Christopher Brookmyre. A big fan of his writing. I think I've heard that he is a St Mirren fan, but not certain...

Kevin McAllister for us, without a doubt. It's an absolute tragedy how the wee man hasn't got a job at FFC. Our club has shamed him and most of our decent supporters

It's a business, not a charity.

Beat me to it.

I'd be interested to know exactly what job he feels Crunchie should have though.
