Brought up watching my footie at Anfield I always liked how the Kop applauded the away goalkeeper (they still do) when he made his way to the Kop goal, this was nearly always reciprocated by the away keeper, those who didn't recieved a chorus of boos. It happened at other English grounds as well.

Was this practice common in Scotland in the past?

I remember there used to be a mutual love in between the Hibs fans and Dunfermline's Andy Rhodes - he even through his gloves into the Famous Five stand after his final match at Easter Road.

Andy Rhodes (Jordan's Dad) always had a great relationship with us when he played for Dunfermline and St. Johnstone. I've no idea why.

Jim Leighton generally got a good ovation when he came back with Aberdeen. As said above Andy Rhodes always seemed to like and be liked by us as well.

True. Though my post did include the (admittedly obvious) information that Jordan Rhodes is his son, as well as expanding on the SPL clubs that he played for, as he was equally warmly welcomed when he played for the Saints. Finally, I'm going to add a nodding smiley at the end of this post, just so I appear even more sure of myself :agree:

I think we should make the keeper feel as uncomfortable as possible, get on his back all the time.

I have found it strange when at Liverpool games that they do this.....do they clap Everton/ManU keepers too?

Can't speak for Liverpool but at the Reebok only goalies from non-rivals (and ones who aren't a dick....Paddy Kenny, Dean Kiely I'm looking in your direction) tend to be applauded.

Yes all keepers, it's just a clap as they arrive at the goal, I have always found it a very sporting gesture from the fans and doesn't mean they don't get pelters once the whistle has gone and the game has started.

Right enough when I watched Liverpool throughout the 80's we always gave the opposition a pleasant afternoon :greengrin Maybe as we can't give them such a pleasant time now we should stop.

I remember when we beat Crystal Palace 9-0 and a young Perry Suckling who was in goal for Palace that day was given a standing ovation by the Kop (not a sarcastic one) as I guess we felt sorry for him, he recieved a similar ovation when he played again at Anfield and played a blinder though I can't remember what game or club it was for.

At Newcastle the Gallowgate End would applaud the visiting goalkeeper as he made his way to his goal ...

.. as soon as the goalkeeper acknowledged the applause they'd change it to pelters!


It was quite funny to watch, and used to confuse quite a few goalkeepers. :greengrin

Erm, that's more than a bit unfair on McCarthy. The reason he ended up playing for Ireland is because Scotland (or Archie Knox, to be more specific) didn't think he was good enough to be picked for the relevant youth team. This despite repeated pleading to pick him from various people at Hamilton. SFA only have themselves to blame for that one (and McGeady to a lesser extent).

I suppose you could see it that way....or you could see it from the point of view that if he wasn't being picked for HIS country then he should knuckle down and work even harder and hope that he gets picked next time, rather than act like a wee bairn "if you're no picking me I'm gonnae go play fur sumbody else..."

I can recall in the mid-1960s, Manchester City's reserve goalkeeper Alan Ogley had an absolute blinder against Southampton at the Dell. Southampton won 1-0 but Ogley made eight or nine miraculous saves. Many thought it to be the finest performance they had seen by a goalkeeper at the Dell. The home crowd gave him a standing ovation and even put a framed action photo of him up on the wall of the supporters club.

It didn't do Alan much good. He lost his place a month or so later and rarely featured in the first team again before being transferred to Stockport County.

At the end of the Skol cup final he went to throw his gloves into the Dunfermline fans but the police tried to stop him. Hibbies gave the police some stick and Rhodes managed to get past them enough to make a successful throw of the gloves, cue Hibby cheers. Think that's where it comes from?

He might never have got the call from "his" country, so how long into your career do you wait? I can see why he went with the offer he did - and McGeady. Why someone should get pelters for that, I'll never know but I suspect it's the country he has gone for which is most people's problem, rather than anything else.

By your reasoning, you could argue that McPake could have worked much harder to get into the Scotland squad - but he's gone for Northern Ireland. Or Rhodes could have hung on for England. But that's slightly different in the eyes of a lot of people and doesn't tend to get whipped up in the same way by West of Scotland types.

I cant speak for most people but the fact they chose Ireland makes no difference to me.

Playing for your country is a privilege not a right. If you haven't yet had the privilege yet, because you're not thought to be good enough or because the jakey manager just wont pick you, then it's up to you to work harder and make it impossible not to pick you. If it never happens then that's a shame, but you shouldnt just decide to represent someone elses country!

As for McPake, he's a great player for us right now but I don't support his decision to play for N.I. I think that he has enough ability that he could have forced himself into the Scotland national team.

Opposition keepers usually get pelters at ER and rightly so ... they should hate playing here.

Jim Leighton didnt coz he probably stopped us getting relegated when he was at ER.

Andy Rhodes didnt coz he seemed like a really nice bloke and Hibs usually beat his Pars team anyway.

No.

Although admirable and commendable this could never happen in Scotland..

Reasons :

Number 1 - we despise each other (religion,corrupt sfa,cheats,other teams trying to kill you et al)
and I don't think this is the same in England or in fact anywhere in the world.

Number 2 - Liverpool have had fantastic success in domestic and Europeon football and it's easy to
applaud some opposing goalkeeper you expect to see get a few goals pumped passed him

Number 3 - The thought of me applauding a jumbo goalkeeper (like Henry smith) onto Easter Road

Yes but that would have been after we had applauded him and the game had started!

Visiting keeper Joe Corrigan was knocked out by a bottle thrown from the Kop. A sign of the times, perhaps, but in more ways than one. Upon being revived, Corrigan was warmly applauded by the Kop, shamed at the actions of one clown. And the keeper himself couldn't be doing with making a fuss of it. "They're fantastic people," he said after the game. "They've always been fair to me. I've been coming here for 12 years and this is the first time anything of this sort has happened."

:aok:
