Pretty sure it's me. I'm a natural on the wing. Any challengers?

Yes, it clearly is me, devastating pace (over the fist foot or so) can read the game like a pro, and fierce in the tackle. What day is it?

Right back in the Jackie Mac style, but with a bit more bite. Can run all day (albeit at slower pace these days, with intermittent rests).

Not me anyway! If you were to compare me to one of our players it would be Paul Paton. Win the ball and give it to someone who can play.I'm nowhere near as hard as Paul though.

In one game I managed to hurt workmates so hard one had to get treatment at Stirling Albion and another at Falkirk. I have always thought Vinnie Jones and Roy Keene to be big softies.

Did dafc-chris not play professionally? Raymie had a season at the San Starko and might have been a player if he could run faster than the average tortoise. 😉

Even at that, in his pomp, he could probably have replaced Billy Kirkwood in the Pars midfield and not weakened the team any. As I recall, Kirkwood used to always be within 20 yards of the ball but rarely ever touched it. Leishman said that those fans who didn't rate Kirkwood knew nothing about football.

That would be me and a good few others, then? ☹

So, someone off here is a better player than Billy Kirkwood? Billy Kirkwood, with his hundreds of games for Jim MacLeans superb Dundee United side. Billy Kirkwood with his League Title Medal, his league Cup Medals, and all his appearances in runs ro Europeans Cup semis, and UEFA Cup Finals. Wow, that's quite a statement. Billy Kirkwood is a better player now, than anyone on here ever has been.

I got invited to train with the first team in the 90's when I was 16/17. On my first days training I never had my boots as they were at my dad's who was on holiday.Andy Tod picked me up for training and told me to come along anyway and I'd get boots at the stadium.I had massive feet from a young age and was size 12(pretty common nowadays) Scott McCulloch had the largest feet at the club at the time but his boots didn't fit me. Feeling intimidated enough on my first day sitting amongst the players I watched as a fan I was completely embarrassed and couldn't train.Out of embarrassment I never went back and I got a real job a couple of weeks later.Seems really silly looking back on it but it may have been the right thing in the long run. I had already had a leg break before that and a few years later I tore my ACL which effectively stopped me playing in my early 20's-it took 5 operations for it to be sorted properly after a mis-diagnosis.

Wow, you want to lighten up a bit, Red Star. The thread title should tell you this isn't the most serious topic ever debated on dotnet. All I was saying is that I didn't really rate Billy Kirkwood as a Pars player. Jim Leishman did but I don't think I was in a minority of one. We got our £50k back when we sold him to Dundee - quite luckily in my humble one. On his first return to EEP, we beat his team 6(SIX) - 1. To put that into perspective we finished bottom of the SPL and were relegated. Pars fans in the North Enclosure, as was, ironically belted out, '' Billy Kirkwood, Billy Kirkwood, what a difference you have made...'' to the tune of Bread of Heaven.

So I wasn't so much saying Raymie was a great player, but damning him with faint praise, by comparing him to one of the poorest players I've ever seen in a Pars shirt and I've seen a few...........

Doesn't mean I'm right, of course, but football is about opinions and the trouble with that is that they're like @r$eh0les - everybody's got one. :-(

No Ozpar, I have to confess that my time with Rob Roy was brief and my junior days were more with Yoker Athletic and Neilston but I didn't consider them as prestigious as Rob Roy. Although, if he was there in 73 I probably played in the same team as him. I remember a guy called Tommy Gilfillan who played midfield.

I was at that final but in the Glencairn end - I spent 13 years living in Rutherglen- a few years after this I watched a young Bernie Slaven turning out for them - a real exciting talent who was head and shoulders above anyone else there at the time and drew huge crowds out by their standards - one Friday night I went to see the Glens play Pollok at Newlandsfield and was one of the “lucky” ones who got in before the gates were locked with hundreds unable to get in - Pollok won 4-0 and Bernie had a mare 😩 - I still follow them on twitter and watch their highlights every week.

Yes thanks for the memories. I did like the junior scene. It is always my boast that I played for Kirkintilloch Rob Roy because that was my biggest thrill in playing football. The truth is that I had been signed by Yoker Athletic at the age of 19 and after a year with them I reverted to amateur football again where I got more of the ball. Some scouts came to see my young brother playing for our amateur team and because I had a pretty good game we were both asked to play a trial game with Rob Roy so there was me and my young bro both playing in the forward line for Rob Roy in a league game against Ashfield. We both played the full game but neither of us were asked to sign, which is a pity for Rob Roy because my bro went on to star for several junior teams, winning the West of Scotland cup with Maryhill juniors as top scorer that year.
