    Great post, and some interesting stuff I didn’t know. One more thing to add on the Hughie Ferguson angle was that apparently he was never going to be able to score for Dundee like he had for Cardiff because of chronic back pain. It was the pain on top of the pressure and sense of disappointment that most likely led him to take his own life.

    As I recall ( maybe wrongly), Ferguson had problems with depression before 1927, and his suicide wasn’t related to football matters, as convenient as that would be to the myth. Great post.
