    Ha Ha!

    I Met Johnny Love in the Cask Southside last week the first thing he said to me was “ It wisnae me that broke John Brownlies leg!”

    IIRC it was Ian Printy

    He went on to tell me he had been over in Spain and met Jackie MacNamara SNR and showed me images on his phone of them in a local hostelry

    We also had a young Bobby Smith and Derek Spalding coming through who both were emerging talents

    Mickey Edwards was a brilliant midfielder who could hit a fifty pence piece from fifty yards with his precision passing and got sent off in that bad tempered match versus East Fife at Easter Road and got a three month ban

    I think East Fife had decided they were not going to get embarrassed like Hearts did a week earlier
    Met him in the Cask last week to . He showed me the Jackie photos and also mentioned George Stewart has moved over there also

    And so it begins.....

    Eddie Turnbull decided to break up the Tornadoes after their loss to Hadjuk Split 4-5 in the ECWCQF a massive disappointment

    He decided to sign his goalden boy from Aberdeen Joe Harper a player sold to Everton for £180000 he decided to buy for £120000 Aberdeen matched our offer but later withdrew it Harper hoping to scupper his move to HIBS demanded a 15k tax free signing on fee and the same wages as at Everton surprisingly Tom Hart agreed

    I attended his debut at Brockville and to say it was a disappointment is a massive understatement he was fat overweight unfit and one of our heroes was sat on the bench

    He was a good player without any doubt but was never accepted by the HIBS fans

    Tom Hart wanted a return on his investment and decided to sell Cropley ORourke and Gordon

    Yes I would say we broke the bank and the club but as Joe Harper said himself “ Do you think I would have left Everton for less money?”

    It was the beginning of the end of the best HIBS team I have ever seen
    It was, I could have cried. It was in the main mediocrity from there on. With short periods of hope.

    Nice summary. I was lucky enough to meet Eddie Turnbull pre-season at Deveronvale (Banff) when I was a young kid. He took me to see John Blackley who in turn took me round the changing rooms (more like a shed at Deveronvale back then) and got every player to sign my 100 Years of Hibs book.

    I'm guessing it was maybe summer of 1976 maybe 1977. I was chuffed to bits.

    Aye he was some player!

    No one appreciated how good until we sold him to Villa on the cheap I think we got Joe Ward as well and big gaps started to appear in our midfield where Des Bremner would normally have been

    A legend at Villa Park went onto win the European Cup

    Sure I seen it somewhere that the turnbull tornadoes only played together about 22 times so no where near 30 months.

    Absolutely right Turnbull's Tornadoes were terrific but after beating Hearts 7 nil on New Years Day things came crashing down in early Jan. 73 John Brownlie broke his leg, Alex Edwards got a suspension of seven or eight weeks. The side were never as potent for the rest of the season.

    Agree but as others have said more than capable deputies came in for Herriot, Brownlie, Schaedler, Stanton Black and Blackley Edwards ORourke Gordon Cropley and Duncan we had Des Bremner, Iain Munro Bobby Smith Jim McArthur, Derek Spalding,Johnny Hamilton, John Hazel,Bertie Auld and Tony Higgins so we always had the nucleus of the Tornadoes usually always about 9 or 10 playing the system

    Notice I forgot to mention Joe Harper

    He did score a cracking goal against Liverpool though.
