Scotsman obituary for John Sludden today. As I said on the Ayr thread, part of the Ayr team that made the school week bearable.

I think the picture is taken at the first league game on plastic in Scotland.

Sad news of his death.  Gone far too young 

Did a great job for both us and yourselves.  

Played a big part in our promotion team 1990 alongside the Carpetfiter.

Which one's Morris?

Is that not Easter Road?

Do keep up...

I think that is at Easter Road.....the old terracing opposite the main stand in the background. Possibly April 1973 when Celtic won 3 0 to clinch the league. Dixie Deans scored 2 that day.

it was indeed Easter Road on title day, Deans 2 and Dalglish with the other one.

Sorry Granda, just trying to be clever.

Clearly backfired. Doh.

If you had stopped at "Which one's Morris?" you might have got away with it...

Any P&B buffs able to provide names fo the full 22 pictured here, perhaps one or two of our more seasoned contributors? emoji847.png

Back row Donnachie, Parlane, Hay, Holton?, Forsyth, Fat Bob from River City, Jardine

Middle Row Ormond, don't know, King Kenny, McGrain, Thomson Allan?, the Girvan shitehouse, Ally Hunter?, Stanton, Eddie Gray, Dr Hugh Allan ?

Front Row (big struggles) Morgan, not sure, Dod Graham, young Hartford, Bremner, Luigi Macari?, Pettigrew ? probably not actually, Erich Schaedler

This was two years before I was born so I'm probably not the ideal man for this task though..

Back row - Definitely Holton and Fat Bob is DJ

Middle Row - definitely Ally Hunter and Hugh Allan

Bottom row - 2nd in I think is Colin Stein

Struggling with 2nd from the right - possibly Eddie Colquhoun, although I doubt it

Didn't recognise the Ayr United player - wasn't deliberate 😁😁

Would never have got him as I didn't realise he'd been in a Scotland squad at that time.

Sure he was capped while at Ayr yet never capped again after his move to Celtic.

You are correct - It's usually the other way round. 😀😀 

While playing for Ayr United, he made his only appearance for the Scottish National Team on 17 December 1975 in a 1–1 draw with Romania - He even managed to get booked.  He was the first serving member of the Honest Men to play for Scotland since  Bob Hepburn in 1932; none have done so since.

The picture above must've been taken just before the initial picture that was shown on here. Luigi Macari and Willie Morgan are caught off guard, Shades and Doyle seem doomed up before they fix half smiles for the main pic. Within 13 years of this pic being taken, both Schaedler and Doyle would be dead and those (last two far right bottom row) seem conscious of the fate that awaits them in this off guarded moment. Although more likely, they are both newbies with Scottish clubs outside the gruesomes, so they are probably of little interest to the Anglos and players who have been around the squad for awhile.

I never knew Tom McAllister had any involvement with the Scottish squad. He went on to spend the whole of the 1980s as Phil Parkes understudy at West Ham United. This is a very unlikely bunch of players assembled in 1973. Even George Graham was rarely with the Scottish squad. I wonder what game they are preparing for here. Perhaps one against Wales or Northern Ireland in the British Home Championship...

I'm surprised at how average in height Jim Holton looks compared to his fellow tall peers at the back row. I always thought Davie Hay was a 5'10 man...

Lou Macari to Willie Morgan "What do you call a Scotsman in the knockout stages of the World Cup? "A referee"

Macari has just noticed Morgan picking out a bogey.

It's an interesting squad. Of the 22 players pictured I reckon only 9/10 were in the World Cup squad the following year (and none of the 3 goalkeepers pictured).
