Could add in Aberdeen in 1991 when they only needed a point and blew it. 2 serious attempts in 34 seasons.

Hadn’t forgotten  Aberdeen and Dundee Utd. I should have said “would love to see again

Haven’t forgotten Hately wiping out the young keeper early on. And Van de Ven missing a good chance. Ifs and buts.

Theo Snelders was injured so young Michael Watt was in goal for Aberdeen on that last day title decider, Mark Hateley absolutely fucking smashed him early on and he was a bag of nerves all day afterwards, badly at fault for the **** and Hateley's second goal in that 2-0 win. 

I don't think Watt ever recovered from that and he slowly disappeared into relatively obscurity after that, a keeper tipped as the next big thing up till that point. 

Snap!

Billy McNeil and Ron Yeats shake hands before the first leg of the 1966 ECWC semi final, Celtic won 1-0 before going down 2-0 at Anfield in the return leg where a Bobby Lennox goal was controversially ruled out for offside that would have put Celtic through on away goals, Liverpool lost the final to Borussia Dortmund at Hampden.

Bet McNeill won every aerial challenge against that Liverpool centre forward.

Maybe it's a young Sammy Lee?

Was there away goals then? I thought it was the 70s before they were introduced? Or was that penalties?

Thought the same but Wiki says introduced for that season’s ECWC then Fairs Cup in 66/67 and European Cup in over 3 seasons starting with First Round in 67/68.

Alain Horace competes for the ball in the 96-97 2nd Division title decider against Hamilton at Fir Park. I say decider, but Ayr didn't win the league until the last game of the season against Berwick. The point gained in Motherwell kept it in our own hands though.

That strip though! :wub:

Why Fir Park?
Hamilton were homeless at the time (and were from 1994 until 2001) so played games at either Fir Park or Cliftonhill.

I dony think they ground shared at Motherwell. The crowd was much bigger than what Cliftonhill could hold and I'm sure a one off agreement was made.

I got mixed up. It was Firhill they used (I get them mixed up sometimes).

Curious thing though there was three firs with Firhill, Fir Park & the now gone Firs Park.

Remember them being homeless - but Firhill and Cliftonhill were there ground shares. Seems a reasonable compromise - picture is definitely Fir Park

Philliben, Gunn, Bett, Dick.

Thought that was Bett but he couldn’t be U18 in 82. Presumably an over-age player
