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. 

Ghana won about 4-1.

Chaos in West Stand as Korean fans couldn't read the seating instructions.

The advert on the Main Stand is "Stand Fast Scotch Whisky".
Was that not the old name for Grant's Whisky? Vaguely remember being confused by old publicans asking for it back when I first started working.

Yeah, “Stand Fast” is the slogan of Clan Grant.

Those shorts though...

did Motherwell win the Cup in 1991? I wish I had someone to remind me. Say every Saturday. Perhaps on a National radio station...

Clearly the ‘Hibees Are Gay’ chant was hiding a few insecurities from the Jambos.

How come the guy on the left got to upgrade to a blouse?

British transfer record-breaking Billy Steel makes his debut for Dundee against Aberdeen. He scored in a 2-0 win in front of a 30,000+ crowd (he's thought to have put an extra 10,000 on the gate alone). His spell at Dens saw Dundee reach Hampden finals three times in just over a year, winning the league cup twice and getting humped by Motherwell 4-0 in front of something like 136,000 fans. There's a chapter about him in the book Dundee Greats, some of the stories are excellent, including one where his team mates pulled him out of a pub, totally a couple of hours before another game against Aberdeen, one of the players was Doug Cowie who said something like "Honestly, he was half-gassed and tore Aberdeen apart that day".

Dundee's next successful period was the early 60s, winning the title in 61-62, a season which included a bizarre 5-1 win at Ibrox, and a mental comeback against Raith Rovers, with Dundee winning 5-4, after trailing 4-2 with 15 minutes to go. Alan Gilzean's goals were instrumental, few more than this late winner at Tannadice in April 1962.

Dundee qualified for the European Cup, making the semi-finals before being fucked out 5-2 by AC Milan over 2 legs. They were drawn against one of the favourites in the first round, FC Cologne. Dundee thumped them 8-1 at Dens in one of the biggest shocks in the competition's short history. The return leg was a deeply unpleasant affair, marred by crowd violence and the Cologne players targeting Dundee 'keeper Bert Slater, who had to go off with concussion, having to come back on with his head bandaged up as Cologne were looking likely to absolutely hammer Dundee. They won 4-0, and missed a penalty. The game ended with British Army soldiers escorting the Dundee players off under a hail of bottles, chairs and various other objects. Here's Slater getting a mouthful of studs from a Cologne forward.

Following that game, Dundee knocked out Sporting Lisbon 4-2, and then pished all over second favourites Anderlecht 6-2. The DABs of course also won a single league title, and got the semis of the European Cup losing out to Roma in a bitter semi-final. It's remarkable these days to think that Dundee's clubs have, between them got to two European Cup Semis, A UEFA final and another semi final. We'll never see those days again. 

 

 

I think it's too early on in Lazlo era to say that with any certainty.

Two redheads in action at Hampden.  This pic is from a question about Alan Ball in The Tully's Blether with Brown section.  Anyone know which year this was as Johnstone and Ball played a Hampden in the 1966 (3-4), 1970 (0-0) and 1972 (0-1) games.

Roy Aitken in action at Fir Park. 

Judging by the Motherwell strip im thinking 1982 or 83...?

 

And Bobby Lennox in action at Pittodrie from the mid 1970's

I love these strips.

Should go for these for the 150 centenary.   Blue with a white hand for home and white with a red hand for the away strip.

 

ETA - I like the fact Rangers were only 7 years old when the picture was taken and the new version are 6 years old (almost) when the thread is happening.  

150 centenary?

Great photo that. I’m assuming it’s Cathkin Park but it looks a lot like Dens.

Very astute of you to correctly assume a picture on the Cathkin Park Ltd Twitter page is a picture of Cathkin Park.

Tommy Gemmell's late goal at Rugby Park, Kilmarnock seals 4 in a row in 1969.

 

And Celtic celebrate the opening goal in a 3-1 win v Dukla Prague in the EC semi 1st leg in 1967. Pictured left to right are Chalmers, goalscorer Wallace, Murdoch, possibly Tommy Gemmell in the distance and Bertie Auld.
