Stopped going just before they left for Italia 1990, Roxbrough took Robert Fleck who was on loan from Chelsea to Norwich at the time instead of John Robertson, never been back since.


You do know John Robertson was injured for Italia 90?

Scored a few vital penalty kicks, excellent record from the spot. Ended up at Charlton did he not?

Aye Charlton then St Mirren.

...and Fleck didn't sign for Chelsea until 1992  but why let facts get in the way of a good meltdown. Fleck also had a fairly successful overall career in England, whilst Robertson shat the bed when faced with a higher level of football and couldn't get back up the road to the lesser leagues quick enough.

Jimmy Bone  , who comes from the same Stirlingshire village as me, Fallin, holds the Anglo Scottish Cup, won by St Mirren in 1979 against Bristol City, the only Scottish club to win it in its short existence.

Robertson played alongside Mirandinha in a Newcastle team that also had Dave Beasant in goal- apparently Beasant used to resort to Wimbledon's tactics of launching the ball up the field where it sailed magnificently over the heads of the two short-arsed strikers..

On this day in 1963 Dundee beat Anderlecht 2-1 (6-2 on aggregate) to progress to the European Cup Semi-Final. Anderlecht had knocked out Real Madrid. IMG_0455.jpg

Robertson was shunted out to the wing for the majority of his short time at Newcastle. A baffling decision.

Peter Latchford takes a cross ball with Dave McPherson, Ted McMinn and Paul McGugan nearby during a reserve game at Ibrox in 1985......the crowd for a RESERVE game.. !!!

The fixture between the first teams at Celtic Park that afternoon was postponed, hence the large crowd.

Film of that First leg game still exists but doesn't seem to be any for the 2-1 return at Dens.
