Aye.

 

Im thinking the laddie being held up in the first picture is Joe Miller and Davie Cooper 2 left on the front row of the bottom one. Its a mid 70s Clydebank team so it likely is.

Think Jack Steedman ( chairman ? ) far left and Bill Munro the manager at the time in the John Motson coat.

Davie Cooper was some player to be fair. Didn’t like playing against Zico tho.
I mind Gerry McCabe was fecken excellent but I think he must have came a wee bit later than that picture.

WTF ever happened to Clydebank ?

 Airdrie bought them and changed the name I think. Not sure this is entirely true, happy for someone to correct me.

 

Last I heard about Clydebank though they were Junior with Derek Ferguson managing them.

Airdrie only did the same as Clydebank, under the guidance of the Steedman brothers, did to East Stirlingshire previously. That’s why they were called ES Clydebank when they were first in the league. 

It took a while for East Stirlingshire fans to win their club back and have them play in Falkirk again.

Fate was to be unkind to East Stirlingshire again, more recently, when they were prevented from playing at Firs Park, due to a property deal. The last I knew, it was still lying empty.

Totally different photo. The bottom one has Denis Law and Jim Baxter in it for a start.

Not all that long ago but this guy popped into my head for some reason. 😆 

He was never a favourite on here at the time but you had to admire his aggression and ability to kick people.

I remember people describing him as more of a nightclub bouncer than a footballer. 😂

I know, that's why I posted it.

Nearly posted the names until I seen the two you said. Then I realised it wasn't the same.

:lol:The Baseball Ground was much worse than rest. 

BBC did a piece last Saturday on Colin Bell, showed him scoring on a frozen Maine Road, nostalgia.

Just typing this made me think, I'm sure Maine Road could have been the first with under-soil heating.
