Amazing to see Wullie Gibson and his son Lewis both playing for QOTS at the weekend.
Not often that`s happened.

Arnor Gudjonsen came on for his dad Eidur in a friendly against Estonia in the 1990s.

Wullie was a player that could make things happen and was good entertainment during his spell at EEP but he could be a bit huffy when things weren`t going his way. Back then I wouldn`t have put him down as somebody who would look after himself well and be as fit as he is at 38 years old.

“I wouldn`t have put him down as somebody who would look after himself well and be as fit as he is at 38 years old.”

This is a good point. I hadn’t actually thought about it, and while all individuals are different, it’s fair to say that slightly moody, flair players like Willie, don’t exactly have a stellar record in terms of maintaining fitness and dedication to a training regime.

Think I could honestly say Wullie has the shortest fuse I`ve ever witnessed on the pitch. He`s brilliant entertainment. One of the few players who can grab a game by the scruff of the neck & win it on his own, equally he could be sent off in the first 10 minutes arguing about a throw-in.

Man is a genius!

"This is a good point. I hadn’t actually thought about it, and while all individuals are different, it’s fair to say that slightly moody, flair players like Willie, don’t exactly have a stellar record in terms of maintaining fitness and dedication to a training regime."

On the not-award winning "Black & White Noise" podcast, Dan Pybus told us that Gibson used to track his activity during training. Once he got home, he`d go out running to make sure it was topped-up to 10k - and he`d do that every single day.

He also said that he got the impression that Gibson himself wished that he`d taken his fitness as seriously earlier on in his career.

Having said that, although he could blow a bit hot and cold, I can`t recall him struggling too much fitness-wise when he played for us.

Happy days though, especially the first dozen games or so of the 2010/11 season - with Gibson, Graham and Cardle causing chaos, Steven Bell at the peak of his powers alongside Gary Mason in midfield and Kirk upfront. Some team.

I love it when we go sell Kevin Nisbet,
He's gonna pay for everyone this season.

His performance in a midweek game against Dundee was one of the best I`ve seen form a Pars winger. He totally roasted their full back, so much so they subbed him at half time, only for Wullie to proceed to doing the exact same to the replacement.

That was the game where our young keeper broke his leg, conditions were absolutely atrocious.

Gibson was fantastic, there`s not many players we`ve sold for three figures that`s for sure.

Gibson, Graham and Joe made going to EEP a pleasure after years of watching us playing unfortunate randoms like Steven Bell on the wing.

Playing Burke out wide was awful.


He was a revelation as a deep lying centre mid though. Pretty much Pirlo.

They were excellent. Having three meant if one wasn`t having a great game there was another on the bench to come on and create something, or we could play all three and push Graham a bit further forward. We also had Steven McDougall who could play wide or up front. McDougall and Graham scored the goals away at Morton to make us champions.

Sorely missing those kind of attacking options now.

All those options, yet that season it was actually Willis who started out wide on the opening day against Falkirk IIRC.

It was a very good and balanced midfield we had, which helped cover up some of the other defincies we had in the squad.

Saw a good interview with Ian McCall recently and he was talking about Gibson and comparing him to Stephen Dobbie in terms of having all the ability but potentially wasting it by not realising & appreciating things untill they were a bit older.

Gibson was best player on the park in that game at EEP towards end of last season , played at rightback and strolled it.

I`ve been impressed with what I`ve seen of him over his time at Queens too.
My memory of him in the famous black and white stripes was a midweek game against the Rovers where he tore them a new one to the extent that they had to foul him on a rota system to stay on the park. He was unplayable that night.

That was Dundee? The night the young keeper broke his leg?

I couldn`t have told you the year let alone the month but it was definitely Rovers.

He may have had a great game against the Rovers but his best ever performance was definitely the midweek game against Dundee.

Completely agree with that. How cold was that night? Felt so sorry for the players

Dundee game he roasted the fullback, then likewise his replacement and when he got bored tormenting him he swapped flanks with David Graham and had a go at the other fullback for good measure !

....did Stephen Bell score in that game from 30yds out. An absolute skelper of a shot. It was very cold that night.
