A cup match (I've no idea which) between Cowdenbeath and Dunfermline in 1920. Dunfermline played in hoops between 1919 and 1921.

Referee cutting about in a suit jacket, shirt and tie with his shorts on. Proper.


Absolutely brilliant clip!

Flybhoy should just open A Photographic History Of Celtic and stop clogging this one up.

Some decent stuff mind you, even if it's just his Da's memoirs following ra Sellic :lol:

Here's another:

September 1969. Ally McLeod's newly promoted Ayr 2 Rangers 1. Somerset's record gate of, wait for it, 25225. Davie Stewart tips over, watched by Dougie Mitchell, Andy Penman and Colin Stein. Notice the scoreboard. Also you can't see the boundary wall because of all the wee laddies sitting on the track. 

As Flybhoy will rightly tell you, Fergie wasn't playing for Rangers that day, never played again after the 1969 Cup Final, and  was transferred to Falkirk in November for £20000.

The Centenary Scottish Cup Final of 1973 aka the Tam Forsyth final. Ally Hunter sees a shot safely wide,  watched by Conn, Young, Parlane and McGrain. The attendance was 122714, the last ever 6 figure crowd for a club match in Scotland IIRC.



Derek Johnstone's header hits the near post and flies across to hit the far post. Forsyth runs in to tap the ball in from about a foot.

30th April 1968. A famous day, particularly in Dunfermline's history. George Farm's Dunfermline won the Scottish Cup the weekend before when on the same day Rangers lost to Aberdeen meaning Celtic, still the European champions, could not be caught. 27,000 crammed into East End Park resulting in fans climbing the floodlights and taking the game in from the roof of the terracing. Celtic won the match 2-1.

Fans on the roof of the terracing and up the floodlights.




The only men who have managed Dunfermline to their two Scottish Cup wins. Jock Stein jokingly attempts to wrestle the Scottish Cup from George Farm.

Think that must have been 1991, Flybhoy. Probably celebrating the fact that all three age groups qualified for their respective Euro 92 tournaments. We played Germany at all three. A famous 4-3 victory coming for the U21s in the quarter-finals, knocking the Germans out after being 1-3 down with 20 mins to play, (5-4 aggregate) Lambert scoring against future team-mate Stefan Klos.

Here's a scene from the usual hard luck story from the full side in Sweden. I do know we proved to have harder skulls than Die Mannschaft that day as I remember Reuter, Buchwald and possibly Effenberg all going off after clashes with Gough, who shrugged the challenges off and played the 90.



Strachan captained the team through the qualifying campaign but had to finally retire in 1991 because of sciatica - after qualification was achieved. Quite noble of him really. :angel

So here's one of my favourites:

It's probably also worth noting that we held off Switzerland, Romania and Bulgaria to qualify for Euro 92, all of whom qualified and did well at the next world cup, the latter two in particular really making a mark on the biggest stage.

Chapuisat, Sforza, Stoichkov, Hagi et al all put to the sword that campaign. And nobody batted an eyelid.

There are about six or seven European Cup winners in this line-up. Israel away 1981 (Spain 82 qualifier).


In fact, the only players in the team who didn't win at least one major European trophy were McGrain and Rough. A team absolutely littered with Euro-trinkets.

McLeish - European Cup Winners' Cup: 1982–83, European Super Cup: 1983
Wark - UEFA Cup: 1980-81
Souness - European Cup (3): 1977–78, 1980–81, 1983–84
Dalglish - European Cup (3): 1977–78, 1980–81, 1983–84, European Super Cup: 1977
Archibald - UEFA Cup: 1983-84
Robertson - European Cup (2): 1978–79, 1979–80, European Super Cup: 1979
Burns - European Cup (2): 1978–79, 1979–80, European Super Cup: 1979
Gray - European Cup: 1979-80, European Super Cup: 1979
Gemmill - European Cup: 1978-79

12 European Cup medals, 5 Super Cups, 2 UEFA Cups, 1 Cup Winners' Cup and way too many runners-up medals to list.

What we would give for some of that kind of big-game European experience these days...
