I like Alex Ferguson. He likes his football and cannot hide the respect in which he holds Jock Stein and the great Celtic team of the 60s and 70s. Like you and I, Alex is immersed in the history of the game here, a history he contributed significantly to at Aberdeen.
So, when questioned by the Daily Record on the potential shuttering of Hampden, his overwhelming reaction was for the loss of history:
“… leaving your history behind you
“You’re throwing away all that fantastic history
“history you are throwing away
“That’s a fantastic history
“history has been formed
“The history of Hampden is riddled with fantastic games
“We need history to tell us where we’re going”
No football fans are more immersed in history than Celtic fans, it sustained us through many a dark day, so these words will resonate with you. But fear not, there is a solution!
They can raze Hamden to the ground and have another venue BUY THE HISTORY! Why didn’t this occur to such a great mind? Buying history is a fairly straightforward issue in Scotland. I now own the Crimean War, which I purchased from a guy in Edinburgh last week.
The same vendor was selling the Renaissance, which I would love to own, as I would really like to have painted the Sistine Chapel in the 16th century, but he was wanting £1000 for that, and an internal voice told me I was being taken for a brainless clown.
