    Sorry. Wrong match. Not Erskine. Fraser it is.

    And look at the forwards as well? BBC gossip column is quoting the Edinburgh Evening News that Sammon is to be given a chance to resurrect his career at Tynecastle next season.

    In 10-11 these seven games v Falkirk averaged one every 7th game. Was sick of the sight of them by the end.

    Donnie McKinnon. Rangers player looks like a young Alex Ferguson. I wonder what ever happened to him. Ref looks like Mr J Mullan of Dalkeith. He was always distinctive with his open neck white shirt. SFL match 9/9/1967. 0-2. Niven, Campbell, Muir, O'Neil, McKinnon, Gibb, Flanagan, Coulston, Rae, Cunningham, Duncan.
  6. The John Lambie Stand

    Beat me to it e4b. Of course it's well deserved recognition for John Lambie but couldn't help thinking another Thistle legend should have been honoured years ago. Let's break with tradition for once and do so before nature takes it's course.

    Looks like a Glasgow Cup tie on 9 October 1961 (Monday night -hence the floodlights on). Thistle 1 Celtic 5. Glasgow Herald report has Hughes heading in the opener from a cross in 26 minutes with Gray badly positioned. If it's this match then it can't be Fleming as I said earlier. Don't recognise who it is. Gray, Hogan, Brown, Cunningham, McKinnon, Donlevy, Ewing, McBride, Smith, Duffy, McParland. Smith scored 89 mins.

    Deffo not Niven or Davis.

    Looks like John Hughes of Celtic scoring with Jim Fleming in the background. Can’t name the keeper however.
  10. John Lambie

    Even now he's probably telling Gabriel that his squad's still a few players short . A good pre-season, John, and they'll be fine. RIP.
  11. Why has it went so wrong?

    Everyone will have their opinions but... The fluke of getting into the Top 6 papered over the cracks that appeared in the last 5 games. 1 point from 15, 3 goals scored and 16 conceded should have been ample evidence that we were unlikely (ever?) to compete at that level. Teams around us have managed to take points off the top teams but our results against Celtic, Rangers, Aberdeen etc remain desperately poor. The squad wasn't sufficiently strengthened relative to other teams. Signings have either proved disappointing to say the least or haven't maintained their earlier form. The opening fixtures were tough and while they even themselves out over the season, 1 point out of 15 is bound to have had a psychological effect. Long-term injuries played their part. The players out had made over 700 appearances between them but it was wildly optimistic to expect them all to come back and hit the ground running after being out for months rather than get new faces in at the turn of the year. The club has been more than generous to long-term injured players. All very laudable but there comes a point when hard-hearted business considerations need to be an option. Lack of success in developing young players - or willingness to consider them for selection. No adequate cover for an excellent goalkeeper but who is injury-prone. The team is completely devoid of a natural leader on the park. Someone who will bawl and shout when things get tough. I can't be the only one who believed that the squad was the best in some time but it's a pity football isn't played on paper.

    Best post of the thread. Sad but true.

    Thanks DOD. It was a 2-pipe solution. Must go now. Mrs Hudson has my breakfast ready.

    As wild a guess as you can get... I don't recall any Scottish grounds with railings. Looks far too substantial a ground in any case. So, thinking it might be England. Wright, Gibb and Howitt all played in a friendly on 2 December 1953 against Derby County at the Baseball ground and I'm guessing that this is them loosening up the day before or the morning of the match.
