Also:  This was the first thing (never mind fitba match) that I ever saw on tv.  Tiny screen, fuzzy b+w images, but magical knowing what was happening via the sounds...

What a team that was. John White was no Jessie he was different class. I still remember the shock of hearing about his death.

Sheltering on the golf course and struck by lightning.

Not so easy to watch Scotland games from Wembley in later years thanks to SFA arranging the blocking of transmission in Scotland.

Probably a run of the mill Junior game playing. (and they are still making silly decisions)

Remember having to go to Largs to watch since it was transmitted via Irish Television service and could be picked up there.

It meant that fools, like me, travelled down to London for a biennial spree!

He was born in Glasgow to an Irish couple. His father lost his life in 1941 when Clydebank was bombed. Pat was two. My kids are half Irish and can get dual citizenship. Depending on what happens with fallout from Brexit it may well be worth them doing so to have free movement in EU.

As for Paddy Crerand he has always come across as a decent bloke anytime I’ve heard him. I enjoy football autobiographies so I must get round to reading his. Never Turn the Other Cheek.

Depends how you term bitter Tim

He's a Republican who wants an united Ireland but no hatred of other people's view

He is also bigger Man Utd man than Celtic's these days

That was what I meant. He came across as a down to earth sort of guy who would talk to anybody, as long as it was about football.  Had a bit of a temper, though, if he didn't agree with you.
