From what I heard , he forced their hand. .


I'm sure there are many versions of what happened. I'm sure he did force their hand. He also took control of the club and Willie Todd and his cronies didn't like it and sacked him for claiming expenses and giving players bonuses that weren't previously agreed. The board were in the right. Fergie no doubt thought he came here to crowds of 1k and now we are getting 15-20k and he was gonna do things his way. He was sacked.

Like a big fish in a small tank . It did dramatically demonstrate the difference a good manager can make to the entire Club , which now , a few years later , I feel we are experiencing  again , which is good . Jack Ross has created a feel good factor that has been missing for a long time . What happened to Fergie , happened . . As you say the board were in the right but in other ways they were wrong too. .

I'm in 50s. I can remember guys  like McGarvey, Fittzpatrick, Stark, Somner, MacAvennie at their peak.

Guys in their 70s will be able to remember Lapsley, Gemmell, Millar and Rodger.

It's all subjective.

Nothing is definitive.

Not good or bad but certainly interesting , l reckon Calum Ball would slot right into that selection , maybe have him on the bench with say , James Gardener. .

Favourites are strikers McGarvey, Sumner and Torforson.  Wingers Scanlon could be a genius. Midfielders have to include Tony F, Abba and Lambert.  Half backs include Jackie Copland and Norrie McWhirter. Full backs include Becket and Young. Goalkeepers include Thomson.

Abba were alright if you like that kind of thing. That Agnetha couldnae tackle a fish supper. But ah wid.

It is interesting how position names have changed over the years , when I was a kid Jackie Copeland was regarded as a sweeper. .

Not just position names, but surnames also.

Used to be called Copland.
