Video Of The Week 2: Only A Game, The Story Of Scottish Football, Part 3: The Player

By on Dec 7, 2010 in Latest, Video | 0 comments

It’s time for another video, and tonight we return again to the 1985 BBC documentary series “Only A Game – The Story Of Scottish Football”. For the third part of this series, the focus is upon the player. The development of the player himself is particularly key to the growth of the game in Scotland. During the 1880s, many of the the first professional players to come into the new powerhouses of the English game were brought south from Scotland on account of their superior technical ability, and throughout the entire history of the game in the British Isles we have been fortunate to see such great players as Jim Baxter, Kenny Dalglish and Jimmy Johnstone, amongst many, many others. This video is divided into five parts, and our thanks go to the original uploader.
