25 years today since we signed the legend that is Henrik Larsson.

Irrespective of your opinion on his stature within the game i think most people agree he was something special and a bone fide world class talent.

But for me he’s by a mile the greatest foreigner to ever do it here.

Imagine if social media had been around when he set up that Chic Charnley winner on his debut...

A shame that Kris Boyd is officially the better player.

I don't think it would be unfair to argue he was the best foreigner the league has seen, but I do think it is pushing it to describe him as such "by a mile" given the talent Laudrup had.

For me, I just think we were fortunate to have players and people of the calibre of both Larsson and Laudrup playing in our game. Both were and still are great ambassadors for our game. You are talking about 2 men who between played in several of the ‘big 5’ leagues, won several team and personal awards in those leagues, played in the latter stages of and won major international tournaments and were known all over the world as near the top of what they do. Both brilliant and I’m not going to pick one as they deserve better.

We will never see their likes again in Scotland that’s for sure.

Wasn’t sure about the new banners but I cycled past this stadium earlier this morning and I think they’re looking better than the old ones

You should’ve cycled round the other end, much nicer.

Why were we fortunate to have them here?

I'd have preferred it if neither had played in Scotland.  In what possible way did it benefit anyone in Scotland, other than the clubs they played for?

Ambassadors!  What does that even mean?  Generous with the Ferrero Rocher, were they?

Who is Ira and why does she dress like James MacLean?

1. Just an opinion, in the same way I felt Dobbie added a bit of class to the Championship in his latter years - sorry to have angered you.

2. Di Stefano signed him for Dundee

For No. I Think youre getting mixed up with the signing of Fablolly Ravioli.

I think having highly talented players does benefit the league. For instance Eremenko for Kilmarnock was one that made me watch their highlights with greater attention. Obviously the teams that have them benefit the most but higher profile players will get our league more attention when we struggle to compete with the EPL for that.

To what end?

People who'd watch anyway might put their chair a bit nearer the telly?

 

The benefits are clearly simply incalculable.
