Came across this photo this morning which has two Scotland players in it. The word legend is too readily applied at times; for definite Dave Mackay, who was manager of Notts Forest at the time of the photo and on the left is considered one but do we consider John Robertson one? In the pantheon of great Scottish wingers there’s Jinky Johnstone, Davie Cooper, Willie Henderson, etc. but Robertson rarely seems to get the same type of plaudits when he was a winner of the European Cup twice; scoring the winner one and having a hand in the only goal in the other he played in. In terms of Scotland he scored 8 goals in 28 games, most of which were penalties including a winner at Wembley.
Back to the photo what a complete mess the pitch is in and who the hell is the third guy?
