Never ever thought i would be writing about the Teddy Bears on here but here goes:
A wee debate on twitter last week started by a STV political commentator who got a few from this Parish involved, including myself
The Question was simple enough, he was asking Celtic history buffs. "How did Feyenood get their hands on the teddy after beating us in the final in 1970?"
The question was right down my street as a few weeks previous i was up in Derek Taylors flat and he had the images on his laptop, i asked whats that your doing and he said its the Lisbon bear in the Museum at Feyenoord. Immediately i said naw its no as i had looked it up a few years ago and could see they were not the same and were actually very different in size and looks and the only likeness i could see was the Green & White colours and similar clothes.
I asked Pat Woods about it next time i saw him and he rightly said there is no chance of it and his feeling was that the Milan bear was given to the Feyenoord party at the airport by a saddened Celtic fan.
