Radio Scotland - Team-Mates

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

 

On Radio Scotland tonight at 7:00 the team-mates series is featuring Iain Ferguson and Steve Kirk and talking about 1991 Cup Run. Should be good

This was cracking and well worth a listen via the podcast. Mainly cup run focussed but a couple of other nuggets in there too, eg Kirkie wanting to replace an injured John Gardiner in goals in the 86 Skol Cup semi for the penalties. If only he had!

Was actually quite emotional listening to it at times. I can't forgive wee Tommy now for not replacing Gardiner in that match!!! heh he

Yeah, did not realise he had dislocated his shooder. Was at Tynecaslte when Kirkie famously saved a penalty and we came back from 2-0 doon there.

That was an excellent listen, never really saw Fergie as a big figure in Motherwell's story, obviously he scored in the final, but I thought he came across really well in that programme.

Last night and the Jim Jeffries/Billy Brown episode were the stand outs of the series for me.

I've thoroughly enjoyed all the teammates programmes I've heard and this one was one of my favourites but I am slightly biased.

Even the 'bomber Brown' one?

Missed that one!

Lucky you.

His rant against Aberdeen fans was unbelievable. He must have not been listening to the songs his beloved 'bears' sang.

TBF, Gardiner would proably have been better with a dodgy shoulder because he couldn't catch a ball with 2 functional ones.

Great to hear them recounting tales of "Psycho"

He was looking a few stone lighter at half time today.

A 'Well hero forever,

- the Cappielow deciding penalty

- the 50 yarder past Bonner

- the perfectly executed elbow to Peter Grant's pus

 

Not a bad CV at all

We were discussing that at half time and I couldn't make up my mind what was my favourite Psycho moment. I decided on the goal in the semi-final but it was a very close call between that and Peter Grant's unprovoked attack on Psycho's elbow.

...my favourite Psycho moment.

A toss up between that Semi Final goal and his half time motorbike ride around Fir Park. (Please tell me this actually happened and I didn’t just imagine it). :lol::doh:

Dear old Psycho.

 

On that night, as Kirkie slipped the ball to him, I was just saying, "He's no' going tae hit it fae there, is he?" when the ball took off and rasped down the rigging behind Dying Swan Bonner.

 

Ahh, the memories..........

 

Hope he's over his personal problems. Good to see him with the wee lassie today.

Nah - my Brother-in-Law remarked about that at half-time, though I couldn't recall it myself.

I can't remember the opposition, something makes me think it might have Partick, but it was in the run to his testimonial against Ipswich and was an attempt to get a bit of publicity for that.

 

The motorbike angle presumably came from Alan Dick who was, and might still even be, involved with Glasgow Tigers speedway.

 

Andy Russell would have been turning in his grave at the prospect of a bike speeding round the track inches from his beloved Fir Park turf!

My memory is well hazy but I thought it was on the night of his testimonial - 2nd fiddle to the Roy essandoh show!

My Thistle supporting mate has just confirmed that it was Partick as he was at the game. Anyone got any pictures of this event?
