Topic Originator: fernando

Looking to see if anyone has the BBC highlights of the 91 League Cup Semi-Final against
Airdrieonians at Tynecastle. Nothing on YouTube apart from the winning penalty. Tks

Norrie told rhodes, that John Watson would shoot right at middle of goal,the rest is history.

I was walking out the ground at 1-0 and stopped to my late uncle and cousin when the penalty got awarded.

We were rank rotten then, our only hope came from Mark Haro’s long throw ins. Ironically It was just what Falkirk looked like at the weekend.

I think it was the most mental I have ever seen a Pars support go when Norrie scored the winning penalty, absoulote mayhem. Pars at Hampden in a major cup final, we never thought then that would ever happen again.

We were rank that night. Airdrie was always dangerous on their attack. As for the penalty, wooft, Davy Syme was our saviour that night.

Jimmy Sandison was on the 18 yard line, jumped for the ball, was in the penalty when he landed, think his lower arm came into contact with the ball. I was in line with the event as I was walking out. The Referee called it correctly and has never been commended for giving the correct decision.

At the time I thought it was a penalty. Clear penalty, but then I watched the highlights :-)

Never a penalty. Hit him in the chest/stomach area and he was outside the box at the time. An absolute travesty for Airdrie but our only hope of scoring.
Was it Derek McWilliams who scored the penalty?

100% correct.

I was right in line with the edge of the penalty area and Sandison used his arm as the free kick from Andy Rhodes came into the box

Scott Leitch was the nearest Pars player and claimed immediately.

Absolutely spot on (groan) Mr. David Syme.

He was a sales rep for Seiko watches - why do I mind such trivia ?

I was only 10 but always remember it being outside the box-Jock Brown commentating seemed to agree having just watched the end of the match back. I spoke to John Watson about this a while back and he said it was never a pen but then maybe he would say that.Did us a turn by missing his one too.Whether he landed in the box or not is irrelevant if the contact is outside the box.


ETA I found a photo of it

Sandisons still moaning about it :)

Not exactly conclusive but still of the opinion it's outside.

Was never a penalty, I remember the next time we play Airdrie, who were up there with Falkirk as a team to hate at the time every time Sandison touched the ball Pars fans were shouting penalty, I don't think he seen the funny side of it.


Talking about penalty, this is how you take one under pressure
