Wouldn't have thought so.

I take it I've been whoooshed, but I don't get it.

Thinking of Ron Davies who played for Wales rather than the Liverpool captain who played for Scotland.

Why did the cover not carry on round behind the goal?

Think it would be something to do with the High School behind the terracing. 

Or maybe we just ran out of poppies to thieve at the time.

May 3rd 1969 (if that is Tommy McLean behind Bobby Murdoch)

Scotland won 5-3 long before the days of the fabled 4-6-0 formation :lol:

I am certain that, even in internationals, teams were only allowed one sub to be named. Why would Scotland have had their sub as a goalkeeper that day? Was there an injury concern about Tommy Lawrence? If so, why play him? Makes no sense to me, and my memory isn’t working.

During his time at Liverpool, Lawrence won three caps for Scotland.  His international debut came on 3 June 1963 in a friendly international in Dublin. ROI won the match 1–0.

He had to wait six years for his second and third caps, a 1–1 draw with West Germany in a World Cup qualifier and a 5–3 victory over Wales in a British Home Championship  match.

During the latter appearance, his last international, Lawrence collided with the crossbar and had to be carried off.

Good info there. Lawrence was obviously one of quite a few goalies to be capped in the 60s. As an aside, his replacement in that game is famous for his name being given to the vet in all Creatures Great and Small.
