  1. I never realised Burton O'Brien was Scots. He played for Sheff. Wednesday for 3 seasons but was always referred to as South African?
  2. Ah okay. Didn't they both end up at Thistle though? I think Billy was a defensive midfield player if I recall?
  3. Thanks for that. I was beginning to think the bit I quoted in bold should've been in larger font.
  4. Fairly sure that'd be Jimmy Gibson, midfield player that ended up at Partick Thistle? Only played a couple of games for the first team. The other would have been Paul McHale, another midfielder who never featured for the first team & ended up at Dundee? To be fair they were up against Jorg Albertz & Barry Ferguson as rivals for that role as well as the likes of Neil McCann, Van Bronckhorst, Reyna & Kanchelskis for a midfield spot.
  5. I remember Gough stopping play with the ball at his feet & passing it off the pitch in disgust. Main features if anyone interested - 10min long. https://youtu.be/K7SYjjlDT50
  6. As I pointed out, or at least tried - there were no internationals between 1914-1920 due to the war which was when he played for Celtic. When he was at Hibs he scored 130 goals in 9 seasons - 14 a season. You might think that's phenomenal, I disagree. High Gallacher scored almost 400 goals in 16 seasons 1921 Queen of the South 9 (19) 1921–1925 Airdrieonians 111 (91) 1925–1930 Newcastle United 160 (133) 1930–1934 Chelsea 132 (72) 1934–1936 Derby County 51 (38) 1936–1937 Notts County 45 (32)
  7. I think you're forgetting a little skirmish that was happening during that first period & consequently there were no internationals between 1914-1920. Also Scotland were blessed with players such as Alan Morton & Hugh Gallacher as well as lesser known but still formidable players like Andy Wilson (13 goals in 12 apps & over 100 goals for Middlesbrough & Chelsea), Andy Cunningham (5 goals in 12 apps & just under 200 goals for Rangers) & Alex Skinner Jackson (8 goals in 17 apps) around 100 goals for Huddersfield & Chelsea & at 19 scoring a hat trick v England as one of the Wembley Wizards.
  8. 1. Celtic 2. Rangers 3. Aberdeen 4. Hearts 5. St Johnstone 6. Motherwell 7. Ross C 8. Dundee 9. ICT 10. Partick 11. Kilmarnock 12. Hamilton
  9. That makes depressing reading. Tom Jones -7wks, Jim Reeves -5, Nancy Sinatra -4, Four Tops & Frank Sinatra -3 So much for the swinging 60s
  10. Pretty sure it was Out of Time by Chris Farlowe penned by Jagger/Richards
