  1. Huge 2 games for Stevie G. He needs 10 pts to match Murty's pts tally from 2018, but I don't see us getting 10 from the post split fixtures. I can't see us getting less than 4 either though, so 6 from Motherwell & Hearts are a must!
  2. A good move. The OO are a religious minority & genuinely persecuted in Scotland, yet their members I know seem to still think it’s the 19th century when they may or may not have been influential. They need to start playing the game & getting minority rights. Why anybody would join an organisation that tells you what to do & where you can (or can’t) go is beyond me, though I don’t know how strictly they ever enforced these rules.
  3. How can anybody take this rag seriously, linking Slaven Bilic, Gus Hiddink & David Moyes to the job.. they do know Michael Oneill knocked it back, right??
  4. Sounds like one of those adverts you see on daytime telly..
  5. Yeah, I well remember watching Laudrup run amok against Brazil in the World Cup quarter final & wondering where he’d been for us most of that season. Not that he ever showed that form for Chelsea either. We probably should have had a clear out in 97, but you don’t just sack legends like McCall, McCoist, Goram etc
  6. This is true, same reason we sold Mark Walters. A lot of fans thought we were downsizing by signing Goram. Bear in mind Chris Woods was England’s 1st choice Keeper in 1991, succeeding Peter Shilton before a young David Seaman usurped him after Woods went to Sheffield Wednesday..
  7. Can’t agree with that. The first 3 seasons Laudrup wasn’t there, & he won 7 out of 9 trophies, not to mention going 10 matches unbeaten in the inaugural Champions League. From 94 - 97 we won a ‘mere’ 5 trophies out of 9, and in any case Laudrup was hardly stuck on the left wing. I agree Numan was a better player, but which foreign LB exactly did Davie Robertson replace in the team in 91? That is like saying we only signed Andy Goram because of the 3 foreigners rule..
  8. On another note, do him & Stevie G still live in England & drive up every week, like Davie Weir used to do??
  9. He managed to handle Roy Aitken & Willie Miller ok..
  10. Imagine how good he would be in today’s game!
  11. Gary is a legend in Leeds, so can only assume it was a ‘football fan’ of another persuasion who did this. Although it could have been random I suppose.
  12. Right now I’d rather have a Davie Robertson than a Numan. Having said that, with today’s refs he’d probably get sent off every game these days, or be cited by Sportscene every week. Just a pity we never signed Numan the season before, (97-98) it’s fair to say Stale Stensaas wasn’t anywhere near the level of those two!!
  13. Watched the excellent documentary on the above mentioned on BBC iPlayer last night after the Scotland game. Seeing old clips of DR for us & Aberdeen got me thinking. Is he the most under rated player ever to sign for us? Looking back he was as hard as nails, yet in a team with Gough, Brown, Goram, Hateley, Ferguson etc you never really noticed. He was also quick and skilful, and a goal threat going forward. Hardly missed a game at LB between 91 & 97, a position that had been a problem before. Won the league every season in his 6 at the club. Yet for some reason he hardly got any Scotland caps.. But what got me thinking, was that people blamed Marco Negri, Gazza etc for us not winning the 10. Looking back, was it the decision to let Robertson go to Leeds in 97 that cost us 9 in a row??
  14. Who are they playing? Hard to believe Barisic gets into that team, based on his recent Rangers performances anyway!
  15. Hard to see McLeish staying on now. As much as we don’t have great players, that was a decent enough midfield & centre halves. To get a doing off of that poor a team in what was a must win game is appalling, and makes you wonder how McLeish - a legendary manager in his day - got the job in the first place. I suppose he won his Europa league group, but I think that has backfired as maybe his team fancy qualifying through the back door now - a very Scottish mentality. Can’t help that the SFA have made it impossible for him to pick Rangers players though - McGregor, Jack & even Andy Halliday would have walked into that team. Memo to Stevie G - Halliday is a better left back than Shinnie..
