Scottish Football Hall of Fame inductees 2017

So, we now know the fresh inductees into the Scottish Football Hall of Fame. Since I have been pestering Richard McBrearty for years to get the three previously uninducted Lisbon Lions in, I've got to be happy that Jim Craig, John Clark and Willie Wallace have finally made it. No complaints either ...

Re: NUMBERS

Vasco, that is a brilliant story, I shall purloin it shamelessly.

I trust Tommy Turner was not involved in the unfortunate injury - I always found TT an absolute gentleman, when I had to deal with him in his days as a St Mirren icon.

Re: Double internationalists

I say Forrest old man. You've seriously under-ranked Renny-Tailyour; chap retired a full Colonel don't ya know. Damned bad form to reduce a fellow's rank.

Re: Double internationalists

Of course, with his cricket cap, Scot Symon is a triple internationalist.

Re: John Jackson - Scotland goalkeeper 1931-1935

Much as I hate to disagree with such a distinguished formu member as your good self Forrest, but, Prince Philip Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glucksburg-Mountbatten was first referred to by his Scottish diminutavie of "Chookie Embra" (note the spelling) in the Malky McCormack/Billy Connol...

Re: John Jackson - Scotland goalkeeper 1931-1935

Gabe: Scots useage. John is sometimes Jack; Jack can be Jake; Jake can be Jakey - no big deal. My first name is Matthew - I am also, to some people -Matt, to others Matha, to others Matty. We're Scots, we like to be different. Again to the world, he is Bill Shankly; but, to those of us from his wee...

Re: QUEEN`S PARK

Forrest, and qpsnapper - at least Scotland on Sunday and the Herald did mention this most-special birthday. As we might exect from the type of paper bowler-hatted Hampden chaps are supposed to favour.

Re: Oldest Surviving Scottish Internationalists

Thanks for that notification Andy. I have already spoken to Carol-Ann, John-Archie's daughter, obituary filed. With John-Archie's death, the new boy in our First XI is Eddie Connachan, the third goalkeeper to be in the "team". The line-up now reads: Bobby Brown (Rangers) - three caps – 19...

Re: An inability to remain upright inside the penalty area

Leatherstocking wrote: Seven goals against what was generally considered the Iron Curtain defence for but a single point. Sigh. Reading through The Herald archive for that 1956-57 season, I noted the great Cyril Horne reflecting on the fact, where once Rangers had indeed relied on their Iron Curtai...

Re: An inability to remain upright inside the penalty area

Forrest, if we take my discovery of the first "Davie Dive" as marking a seminal moment in football - the first alleged case of "simulation". Isn't it good to know - yet again in football landmarks, Queen's Park were involve.

An inability to remain upright inside the penalty area

I am currently working on a project which requires long hours reading 1950s match reports. This morning, reading the report of the Rangers v Queen's Park league game, at Ibrox, on 23 February, 1957, I noted that Rangers rescued a point, via a 3-3 draw, when Johnny Hubbard converted a 70th minute pe...

Rangers Sports

Hugh Barrow (Victoria Park AC), was once the fastest teenager in the world over one mile. Hugh recently sent me a newspaper article (it looked like the Herald) with the results of the inaugural Rangers FC Sports, run in conjunction with Clydesdale Harriers. We reckon it was held in 1888. As would a...

Re: Definition of 'scrimmage'

Might a "scrimmage" be, for want of a better description: "a mass or multi-player stoat-up"?
