91 CUP FINAL

Recommended Posts

Former forum member SpecialAKA sent me this video from before and after the final. I'm sure he doesn't mind it being shared to a wider audience.

Remember when Motherwell beat Falkirk 5-3? Dougie won a penalty when Clark fouled him in the box.  Clark then deliberately whacked the ball against Dougie from very close range.  That's the sort of thug he was.

Posed the question to some mates  last night ( remotely of course) ....Did they think the standard in general was better, same or worse than now......the ones who got back to me thought we played more football on deck now.....I tend to agree , after watching again last night, surprised how many long balls were played.Not complaining mind you.

i thought the standout players for both teams were Phil for us and John ONeil for them, wonder why he never went further.

First time I’ve watched the game in full since approx 92 and if I’m honest, there was a great deal less football played than I remember. In fact, both teams were pretty poor.

What was pleasing was showing my son just how many home grown players were in that squad. John O’Neill’s half time substitution made a huge difference for them and I hadn’t realised that he been formerly Fir Park Boys Club. Even then we were turning out quality youth.

Ive always had a strong sense of injustice over the Clark assault on Maxwell but it is nothing on the flying 2 footed tackle Nijholt did to give away the free kick that caused the ball to come in. 

I also didn’t realise at the time just how much the players were moved around. McCart starting at RB with Griff at RM was completely erased from the memory banks.

I'm a numpty! Couldn't watch live so recorded it, just found out it's been deleted from the skybox because two weeks have passed! Does anyone know where one may find the full match online elsewhere?

It was on iPlayer, if it's still up there are ways and means to download it permanently...

Some interesting stuff in the month or two following the final. Wouldn't get that kind of information about wages and contracts these days :O

What was the issue with Maxwell?
