Your team is getting battered 1-5 from your geographical and most  hated rivals in the Scottish Cup Final, would you still be sitting there hoping for a last 15 minute rush of goals for an equaliser or would you be homeward bound ?   

I'd be there. Never ever leave early.

Celtic v Aberdeen at a fog bound Celtic Park in 1994, abandoned at half time goalless.  Played out a 2-2 draw when rearranged a few days later. 

Such was our shambolic state of peril at the time, the rumours, probably true are that the Celtic board at the time of the Kelly's and White's asked the referee to play the full 45 minutes since, Scottish league rules at the time stipulated a refund had to be given should a match be abandoned before half time, yes, we were that fucking skint. Celtic, very generously took a whopping £2 off admissions at the turnstiles a few nights later (£10 circa was the cash gate then I vaguely recall)

Scottish League Cup Final 15 December 1973. Only 27,974 there as weather was extremely bad and think a lot of buses had to turn back. It was also an early (1.30pm) kick-off due to national energy crisis during miner’s strike, Game probably would have been abandoned or more likely postponed nowadays. Dundee beat Celtic 1-0 through a Gordon Wallace goal 14 minutes from time.

No way is the first one from 66/67, the terracing at Tannadice is covered and benches have been installed at Dens.

I'd be quite happy to replace the seats for a crush barrier anyday.

Didn’t look closely enough. Early 80’s?

Alex McLeish jumps for a header with England's Luther Blisset in a 1-1 draw from 1984. Jim Bett looks on, couldnt find no team line ups but based on the mullett I suspect the number four for Scotland is Arthur Albiston, then of Man Utd.

Check out the size of the Hampden crowd !

Thanks. The name I was thinking of was Dave Watson.

Decent player Watson.  Everton had some good centre backs in the 80's.  Ratcliffe, Mountfield too.

Great team all round.

Heath, Gray, Sharp, Southall, Steven, Stevens, Sheedy...

Outsranding.

Incidentally I have a faint recollection of watching their Cup Winners Cup victory on holiday in Spain as an eight year old.

There was a pretty strong sentiment among Evertonians that they 'should have' been playing Celtic instead of the pantomime villains of Rapid Vienna.

In few years from now we will be at the New Campie and Tannadump will be all allotments.

Some derby action from years gone by, Tommy Coyne celebrates a goal v Rangers (deceased) in 1991 as a mulleted Ally McCoist looks utterly spewing, and Pat Stanton in action v Hearts at Tynecastle for Hibs sometime in the 1970's, unsure of the Jambos in the picture, that appears to be the end which now is the Roseburn stand in the background as you can the school for the deaf buildings in the distance which are still there to this day.

They should have been, the irony aside, it was a prime example of uefa siding against a british club to benefit a central european team. The blatant lies and changes of their story should have got it thrown out but was an example of how corrupt that association was at the time. That said Everton would have beaten Celtic just as easily as they beat Rapid in the final.
