A couple of clippings from the EEN after the 0-7 game.
A typical "Allisbarry" piece for the Hearts fans saying there's nothing to worry about as they "gifted" Hibs the first 3 goals and that the last time they shipped so many goals they went on a fantastic unbeaten run. Didn't happen this time and their crowds plummeted for the rest of the season.
The other one sees looking forward to the Quarter finals of the Cup Winners Cup with the news that the sports magazine Football France had Hibernian placed 3rd for the calendar year of 1972, behind Bayern Munich and Ajax, Hibs being the top team from Britain.
The Tornadoes were awash with brilliant talent all over the team but Mickeys vision for passing was wonderful and something I hadn't witnessed before - and still haven't seen to that standard. What a player.!
He seemed to play on his toes and sort of bounced when running with the ball too.. Hope older fans know wtf I'm on about here..!
Anyone who saw him play will never forget him, I was privileged like you to watch an extremely gifted footballer.
That brings the memories flooding back, was at the game with a mate who was at Paisley college, ended up debating Bestie with a hun in the wee howf bar - ran to Gilmour street station and still missed the last train so our party of 5 ended up sleeping in a one room bedsit until the morning!
