The 21 year old Easton, born in Glasgow is a Scottish Under 21 International and has played for the Scotland B Team.

Years ago Manchester United were known as "The White Heather Club" Is history about to repeat itself with Burnley assuming that title, I wonder ? Just imagine a future England Scotland match with half the Scottish side, registered Burnley players. O.C. would doubtless be manager of the national side though !

Good point MF, by the way is that fan as in Jimmy McIlroy or as in Sammy McIlroy?

It's the incomparable of course, I was just lucky enough to see him in full mesmerising flight from about 1956 until that dreaded day in 1963.

You must have a few years on me then mate but not that many. Born in 1954, I was kind of too young to remember the great man. I remember though he played in the John Angus Testimonial in the 70s and was running rings round the young kids even then

The difference [in years] Turfmanphil is the number on the great man's shirt. However, we are all looking to the future now, the nostalgia has gone on long enough.

I just worry about what happened to Leicester when they tried doing it under Craig Levein - but Owen is not Levein and we have to trust he knows what he was doing. Young Kev isnt bad now is he! :-)

If the club shop are commercially aware they should latch on and start selling claret and blue bits and pieces with a caledonian theme. Though the thought of Phil in any kind of dress should put everyone off their porridge !!!
