I have to say in terms of a re-take i would choose a different Pen taker for our game at Aberdeen not too long ago. Had we converted that pen Aberdeen would have fell to bits and it would have been a real thrashing for them. Kamberi would have been a better option but never mind we turned the city green regardless.
I know it may have papered over the cracks or just delayed the inevitable but if Jimmy Boco hadn’t taken a nose bleed and bottled it to put us 4-1 up against the hun early in the second half, that season may have ended with a different outcome. That might not necessarily have been the best outcome though as we may never have seen wee Russel or the majestic Sauzee.
This. If it wasn’t for that East Fife hack on JB we genuinely could have won the league that season.

If my memory serves me well, it wasn't so much a bad tackle as an unfortunate one.
East Fife were more noted for kicking Edwards off the park. John Love being the main culprit in one particular game. As usual, the ref offered Mickey no protection but was quick to book the wee man for throwing the ball ( to Sloop strangely enough) in an aggressive fashion. That booking resulted in a hefty ban which like Onion's leg break, cost us dearly.
If I was a cynical man I would probably have thought there was some kind of agenda at the time.
