The review will result in f**k all

Absolutely.

McLeish report part two. What a pile of shite that was. Years to compile and came to the conclusion that Scotland should have a ten team top flight, despite every other league in Europe of any significance, having a 16 or 18 team top division.

Liverpool won 5-2.

Great photo. Surely your uncle merits being named?

Legendary Cowden physio Davie Stewart (in post 1930-53) working on Cowden's goalkeeper of the day. Weirdly the composition of this photo really reminds me of the famous Rembrandt painting, The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Tulp, although the Cowden keeper is (presumably) still alive.

A Dutch Baroque History of Scottish Football thread for this pish!

If any P&Ber is wondering where the ground was it was (roughly) where the Tesco at Canonmills is.

Must be one of very few pictures of Frank in a Liverpool jersey playing alongside first team players as he never ever played a competitive game for Liverpool. 

I think Frank made a massive mistake in not staying at Liverpool. IIRC it was Bob Paisley who got Frank interested in horse racing and betting which was a downfall for him and his marriage.

One of the greatest natural goal scorers Scotland has produced.

He was into gambling long before moving to Liverpool. Was never out of the bookies in Springbank Road.

Neil Mooney. Here's another from the same game. He was playing for Svendborg at the time.677787738_1979.8.7FBU2-5Liverpool(7).thumb.JPG.b7b3d763d6b5bccb8d81f5b932f99a5e.JPG

Slightly less glamorous, here he is playing for Ardrossan Winton Rovers against Kilbirnie Ladeside in a Junior Cup tie in the early 70s. Apparently, this was the first match I ever attended (but as I was around 2 years old I have no memory of it).

Did your uncle ever fully recover from the accidental stamp he was about to receive ?

Managers when they were players. Alex Neil in the colours of Mansfield Town, 2004-5.

He lasted just a season at Field Mill despite being a near ever-present with 41 appearances. Keith Curle was sacked by Mansfield during the season and his replacement, Carlton "The Relegator" Palmer, freed Neil at the end of the season- after which he came up the road to finish his career with a long spell at Hamilton Accies. Andy Barrowman was at Mansfield then too.

Neil is front row, second from right in the team group.

Agreed. I probably never phrased it right. I believe in his book he wrote that through his friendship with Emlyn Hughes and Bob Paisley his betting took on a whole different level as they had “contacts” plus the increased wages led to increased bets and subsequent losses. Unless you can control you gambling it’s a terrible addiction.

No photos alas, but I didn't know Caley were the first Scottish team to have floodlights:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-highlands-islands-62134336

Think a lot of clubs experimented with lights, and probably before that too, but none were really up to any acceptable standards. The first between Scottish League clubs was Stenhousemuir v Hibernian in November 1951, but Ochilview had had lights since 1945, with the lights turned on after a match against Dumbarton. The SFA wouldn't sanction their use in competitive games until some years later.

More on floodlights in Scottish football:

https://knoji.com/article/floodlights-in-scottish-football/

From the article:

"The very first attempt at floodlights in Scottish football happened way back in October 1878. Third Lanark invited Vale of Leven to play a friendly match under lights. At the time, electricity was very much in its infancy. The ‘floodlight’ used was nothing more than a single beam that was operated from a platform fifty feet above the pitch. Much of the game was played in darkness as the operator struggled to move his ‘light’ to keep up with play. It was a decent enough experiment of playing under artificial light but it wasn’t going to catch on – not like that anyway. As an aside, the match finished 2-1 to Third Lanark."

 

Ochilview match in 1951: Stenhousemuir 3 Hibernian 5. Hibs wore their traditional green jerseys with white sleeves, Stenhousemuir maroon and white hoops.
