Mention on other topics about schemers re Alan Baker and Ken Hodgkisson and attacking wing backs and Brian Taylor (2) reminds me of a game in September 1988 when we invented playing without a recognised #9 or centre forward. Due to injuries we only had a Scottish triallist to wear that shirt. Someone can perhaps remind me of his name. Despite this Alex Taylor ran the show and we won 5-0. All the better the opposition was Birminghsm City.
I remember that game. A Bluenose workmate of mine cadged a lift to the game and sat up in the stand (I was in the Street End as usual). He was already waiting when I got back to my car as he had left before the end - in fact he said he stood up to go when it got to 4-0 but there was such a queue of Brummies trying to make their escape that by the time he managed to get to the exit it was 5!
Willie Callaghan. On loan from Dunfermline. Scored on his second game in our 1-2 defeat at home to Stoke.
I loved Alex Taylor. My dad still hates Stoke City for crocking him. I think we could have stayed up had he stayed fit because he was a really gifted play-maker.
That’s the man. How many did he play in total?
I agree. One of the most skilfull and intelligent players to wear the shirt.
Just those 2 games Bham and Stoke.
Thought so. Thanks.
