The Coventry City programmes from 1972/73 reminded me that before these wonderful politically-correct times of ours we had ‘Lager Lovelies’ – good looking lassies whose photographs adorned the side of a can of Tennent’s Lager. Ultimately these cans became collectables in their own right.


Well if we can’t have the girls back on the cans how about introducing sets of Scotland International Footballers – past and present – from Colin Stein to Steven Fletcher, players who could deliver a threesome Frank McAvennie can only dream about. I can see some of the advertising slogans already – e.g. ‘With Joe Jordan and Richard Gough you are bound to get a good head’ – er, em if you know what I mean!
