"What do you plan to do after Scotland win the World Cup?" MacLeod replied: "Retain it."
THESE ARE THE WORDS OF A LEGEND, OUR LEGEND, THE LATE GREAT ALLY MacLEOD.
Although he is perhaps best known as the Scotland manager in '77 and '78, Ally was a guy who devoted his entire life to football as a player with several clubs and then as manager. He managed clubs such as Aberdeen, Motherwell, Airdieonians and Queen of the South but his club was Ayr United. He has been manager of the club three times and was a success every time and took Ayr United from nothing to a team to be reckoned with the likes of Rangers and Celtic.
Ally was a real larger than life character. He was somebody who brought a great deal of humour into whatever company he was in.
To extend Hampden for the world cup qualifiers for 2010 and get behind the boys to get to the world cup.
The 42 year old Accounts Manager from La Felguera, Spain shocked Football Fans worldwide as he gifted Italy a Free Kick after Alan Hutton was the victim of a heavy barge/tackle when he was nowhere near the ball, by Italian player Chiellini.
Everyone could see it as a Scotland Free Kick but somehow the bungling Manuel and his eejit of a linesman Juan Carlos Jimenez thought otherwise.
It was not the only decision he got wrong that day, but it was the most costly.
We wish we could replay the game again but this is the next best thing and we call on UEFA and FIFA to grow a pair of balls and finally sort out the bungling referees of the world.
We want Justice for Scotland and Justice for the lads who played their heart and soul out on the rain soaked Hampden pitch on Saturday 17th November 2007.
