Fantastic article, beautifully written.  It's things like this that make me wish I was 15-20 years older......

thanks so much.   

it's weird how as you tell the story I see shankly and the players in black and white in my head, ( cos I so rarely got to see games live ), all amidst evening mist and fog, ..... perhaps that's the fog of advancing years  .......paisley ushered in colour memory.
