You'd have been standing roughly at the corner flag at the 'Town end' and St Ninians road side taking that picture. 

One thing that annoys me somewhat is, when old grounds are flattened and replaced with whatever there is always a nod to the site's nostalgic past, Morrisons supermarket in Falkirk is called 'Brockville' for example and has imagery all over the store, many housing schemes have streets named after players, plaques etc. There is absolutely nothing there to mark what was the home to the city's football team for half a century or so, poor stuff from Cala Homes and Stirling Council in my opinion. 

Honestly had no idea that's where Brockville used to be.

Some squad that, the last one I'd estimate where we had genuine world class players in it.

Out of that squad of 16, at least 11 of them won European trophies at club level. 

I think Joe Jordano played in a European cup final with Leeds when they lost, along with Frank Gray, but Frank won European cup with Forest I think.

Frank Gray was an unused substitute in one of Forest's wins, the second one in Madrid I seem to recall?

Ironically Real Madrid won the European Cup the season beating Patizan (Belgrade)

I actually didn't realise that was classed as the first round (Last 16) as we had already played and beaten a team from Tirana, Albania (17 Nentori), which transpires was a Preliminary Round

Too young to remember!  Was that the one against Kevin Keegan's Hamburg?

Always remember Andy Gray's goal, keeper catches a cross and Gray headers it out his hands and into the net, referee gave the goal 😂

Yep, they beat Malmo 1-0 in Munich, 1979 then Hamburg by the same score in Madrid a year later. 

Only side to have won the European Cup more often than their national league title.

I remember him launching Billy Dodds off the pitch into the blaze track at EEP. 

“Taxi for Dodds” He was brutal.

Annfield was my first away trip- Stirling 3 Meadowbank 1 in May 1987. Thistle actually got promoted that day as results elsewhere were favourable to them. That game was also the last game on grass at Annfield. The horrible plastic pitch went in after that. 

This is a photo I took a couple of years ago- Annfield House is in the background. 

Remember having a walk up to the park a few years after it was knocked down. As FB says the old Annfield House must have been listed to have been kept so long.

1st went to Annfield in 81 so have now been watching Cowden play at Forthbank twice as long as I did at Annfield.
