Thanks for your replies guys. Jim H and Brainier I would like to use your quotes in the book. If you want to email me on [email protected] with your full names you will be credited. Incidentally Alfie Conn was an Ally signing Brainier, possibly his last. Not sure if he played in any of his 5 League Cup games start of that season. Im pretty sure he was injured for at least the Partick game so It may very well be that Hay gave him his first start. Also the first programme for the season V Partick says pretty much the same as the Dundee Utd one Jim in that he welcomed the return of the League Cup group format in preparation for the promotion push.
Hi guys. I am currently writing the biography of Ally MacLeod looking at his whole career withhis time at Fir Park between 1978 - 1981 covered. During my research I can see he spent a lot of time promoting the club and meetingsupporters and am keen to get some more information on this angle. I was hoping older members may have some memories of his dealings with thesupporters clubs or other functions or indeed any memories of his time at FirPark. If you can help I would be most grateful. http://www.amazon.co.uk/More-Than-Argentina-Authorised-Biography/dp/1909626317/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1394801991&sr=1-1&keywords=argentina+more+than
