Just watched the Celtic victory winning the European Cup in 1967. It was brilliant.
I watched it that night in my Brother's and sister in law's house in Dickson Street Dunfermline which is now the Elgin Industrial estate.

These BBC documentaries about Lisbon '67 totally ignore Big Jock's visit to Italy in 1962 when he and Willie Waddell accepted an invitation engineered a popular newspaper (Scottish Daily Express ?) to study Helenio Herrera's techniques.

Inter had been top of the league until they went on a run of six winless matches
which put them under great pressure becuase they still had a "must not lose" last game of season away fixture on the Sunday after the EC final - they went down 0-1 and Juventus took SeriE A.

Herrera went to manage Roma soon after the double trophy loss.

He was very, very good. Could play in central defence but was more useful to the team in midfield. Proof that talent alone is not enough. Psychologically, he was shot after his marriage fell apart, I believe.

Was he not a High Valleyfield boy, who moved to Kincardine after he got hitched, VEE?



Not your average Sunday League player.

Connelly was pure class. I would put him slightly behind Baxter and slightly above Stanton as a great Scottish creative wing half. Maybe we do something well in Fife?

You are probably correct GG.

I met him a few years back walking his dog - initially he thought I was a Celtic fan wanting to chew the fat and was not for going there.

Then he twigged I was a Pars fan and became chatty about our team of the '60s.

He scored for Celtic at Elland Road very early on - and had another disallowed.

Yes Goerge Connelly was from Valleyfield I played football against him and his brothers in kick about games at the park back of Leighton street in the village.All his brothers were good players,if I remember right Jock Stein tried to sign him for the Pars but he was all ready earmarked for Celtic.Fond memories of those games,and playing alongside Goerge when we won the East and West Fife 5 aside indoor tournaments,medal presented by Jock Stein.
It's mentioned in his book The Lost Legend.and what could have been a great career wasn't to be for such a gifted player.

That was the second Scottish Cup final I watched, the first being the year before when Aberdeen beat Celtic 9-8 on penalties, the first final to have been settled by penalties.

Interesting to watch it again after so many years. The best football was played in the first half even though the excitement came later. I remember most of those players from when I went through my early teens and it reminded me how much I used to dislike both Dougie Arnott and Dave Bowman.

I quite like Jock Brown's commentaries as well, but not sure about Ally McCoist beside him. One thing that was noticeable was how much more enjoyable I found it without every incident or decision being scrutinised with a million replays.

David Syme was pretty lenient I thought, certainly by today's standards. That was just a few months before he ref'd our League Cup semi against Airdrie at Tynecastle and awarded us the dubious penalty that took us through to the final. He was obviously highly rated at the time.

He was an excellent referee.

Nothing dubious about that penalty, I had a perfect view, it was deliberately handled.

I was at that side of the ground and would have sworn on my children’s lives that it was inside the box at the time.
However, I was wrong.
I didn’t make any pledge.
My kids are still here.
VAR still isn’t.
Happy Days!

I've genuinely never seen that before, heard about Syme and this apparent howler of a decision but to me that looks like it is in the line, and thus a penalty?

I was expecting something far worse.

Agree it wasn't a complete howler. I think the circumstances of it being so late in the game and the fact that both aspects of it were debated made it more memorable. I just dug out my programme from the final and this was in the intro

'The Lanarkshire side's sense of injustice was understandable to most observers, although sympathy and support began to crumble when the affair was allowed to drag on too long.
Airdrie were not the first club to be denied because of one man's interpretation of an incident and they won't be the last either.They are out of the cup and the time to put their unfortunate night in Edinburgh out of the way has long since passed'

Can't find the video of it unfortunately

Would love to see it again-I had only just turned 10 at the time.

I found this article in the Herald that said Airdrie were threatening legal action at the time.

https://www.heraldscotland.com/news/12623640.airdrie-have-become-victims-of-their-unfair-reputation/

The only other reference I could find to it was in the book 'There is a Bonny Fitba Team' about Hibs which said TV evidence conclusively proved it was in the box but not handball which is the opposite of what I thought.

You must have been just behind or in front of me, then - because I too had a perfect view positioned to look along the penalty area line and it was NOT a penalty, 100% WRONG decision.

Just shows how two eye-witnesses can see the same event from the same position and come up with completely opposite decisions! Pity the referee.

Watch the footage for confirmation, Sandison was on the line - and see Scott Leitch's reaction, he was nearer than anybody.

David Syme was right.

I must of been close to Stanza and vet in the old corner shed, My laddie who was only 10 shouted for a penalty like most of Tynecastle at that point. It may have been a crowd decision that swayed Syme.
I do remember the back hand slap Norrie and Sooper John exchanged after the celebrations.

only 11 make the team,the rest can just but dream.
