Really enjoyed that......... I don't remember him very well, I was too young but my older brothers raved about him and Colin Stein.

 

He has some scoring record v them...... wish we had a player like him in our squad today.

It's a good insight into another era of the game. £30 a week & a Ford escort! & that was probably triple what the old timers earned.

For such an important goal and game

I often look at the crowd in this and wonder how there wasnt the bedlam i always remember in big games when we scored

They look kind of calm 

Not every day you knock out a team that supplied the majority of players that went on to win the World cup few years later

” The best period of his Leeds tenure occurred 6,000 miles away when he went on loan to Bulova in Hong Kong. “Eddie Gray [the new manager] suggested it. ‘No chance,’ I said. ‘You’ll double your salary and it’s tax-free,’ he said. ‘When does the plane leave?’

I know it must be over 10  but the odd thing is . Most of his goals against them have no footage on you tube

Scottish cup final 73 and league game when he scored his final OF goal

Although I remember him scoring at the piggery loads of times . One for our man Jules .....Where are you legend

He scored a few in the Drybrough cup final and he may have got a double at piggery in a league game

I know he scored a double at ibrox and quite a few more I'm certain

Such a shame that there seems no footage of these goals

There’s a few on the video Old Firm Classics that came out in the early 90s.

Never knew this mate . You can get or buy  the full games ?

Jesus I would have a long list .

One game we will never see again is the greatest come back in an OF game in my lifetime

2-0 down at Ibrox and we won 3-2 in the pissing rain at IBROX 77/78 SEASON Sept 77

It was around the time of the TV strike

It always annoys me to this day . The younger ones will never see it .

I don’t know about full games but I’m sure if you PMd the admin Stephen he’d help you out.
