YEP retaken pen,,,,,cos he missed deliberately [think the retaken he had no choice,,,,everybody else was stood nattering in front of the Tilton and wouldnt come up to take it,,,,dont think there was going to be any doubt he was going to score either,,,,,,Ernie Hunt leaning on a post while he tapped it into the net !!,,,,,,or the reason it was given first time !! Mal stood talking to the ref,,,Ernie tying up his boot lace supposedly behind Mal, he stepped back fell over Ernie, PENALTY !!,,,,, the score does not suggest it was a good game but it was brilliant football with skill shown and all the party tricks coming out.
The Celtic game was not played in the same sprirt though,,,boots flying in all directions [sometimes with legs still inside them, not joined to bodies !! ] and that was on the terrace,s,,,,,,,,only game I ever went to where the opposing Fans took the Tilton, and the Railway and the mainstand while Blues fans stood as if in a cattle crush surrounded and Zulu,s trying to get into the middle of the women and kids for protection from hairy arsed jock nutters foaming at the mouth on "Special Brew",,,, being a hero type,kept my missus in front of me for protection all the way through the game,,, MY PROTECTION NOT HERS !!
