Nice to see Jean Yves M'Voto just behind the main man as well. He's aged well

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.

I was at both the 1970 and 1972 matches, and based soley on Alan Ball’s hair and  sidelappers, pretty sure it’s 1972.

Edit- just checked on You Tube and I’m wrong, it’s 1970.

St Johnstone v Real Madrid at the Bernabeau, a game most folk have no idea ever happened. 

I had no idea this game took place.

When was it?

LOVE this thread!

I've no idea, tbh, there's almost nothing about the match anywhere. I know Gordon Whitelaw got our goal, and we went 1-0 up, but that's it.

Speaking of 1971, here’s the Scottish Cup being rescued from Pittodrie in February that year after a third of the main stand was toasted, destroying much of the clubs historical records dating back to 1903.

Real Madrid asked for the friendly as preparation for the upcoming Cup Winner's Cup Final against Chelsea to give them a flavour of British opposition. The watching Chelsea manager wasn't impressed by Real, though Chelsea struggled to win the final – it went to a replay.

Saints hadn't played for a couple of weeks and lost a couple of late goals as they tired.

Listing the away team first is a bit naff.

Seemed to be the standard way of doing things. Presumably because the away team were the selling point in local posters, programmes etc at a time when attendances were more variable. See also this poster advertising a game at Muirton against Third Lanark

Certainly had changed by the 1970s.

Never knew about that fixture, however can recall playing Saints in the late 90s, as well as Dunfermline and Motherwell.

That photo must be pre-1934.

Aye they were impressed with that Saints team and requested the friendly. By all accounts it was a cracking footballing side who'd done well in the Scottish league and had qualified for Europe.

Records show they play on March 11th 1929. No other March date comes as close to the poster as that, so assume it's an error on the records part.
