That photo is from this season, is it not? Appeared in the album Collettivo West Kaiserslautern put up on Facebook when Tommy Adams finished his trek at the Fritz-Walter-Stadion in November.  Great picture all the same.

That's right. Just checked back to see that half my original post is missing. You know, the crucial bit with the context and history etc. Oh well.

Note to self: proof-read before posting next time.

Fergus McCann's letter to the Bank of Scotland a week before they were ready to pull the plug on Celtic and the old board, and as history tells us the wee man with the bunnet stepped in and saved the day.

Would the airport even be in that picture if it was taken today?  That looks like it's a picture facing west so the airport would be off to the right of the photo

You can see the size of the St James Playing Fields at the top of the picture.  Much bigger than it is nowadays. 

The old Kibble school would be to the right hand side of the top right of the picture.

The day Michael Essien played at Easter Road. 

This was a World Cup warm up match for both teams. The Ghana fans were noisy, colourful and anarchic- one guy ran up and down the front of the main stand waving a Ghana flag and taunting the Korean fans. The Koreans were mostly over in the old East stand- they applauded politely in unison. 

Essien was the best player on the pitch. I can't remember the score.
