So you are the skipper and you have a time machine. You can go back in time and grab any former player from any point in their career.

Lets here your picks.

So give the player name and year and month you would grab them from.

Gattuso, Cannigia, Trevor Francis, Andy Gray....

Or what about Emerson, Capucho, Jeffers...

I will just stick with my team - not the individuals.

Ritchie
Shearer
Caldow / Provan
Greig
McKinnon
Baxter
Henderson / Scott
MacMillan
Millar
Brand
Wils

Forever in my heart!
Yes, a much loved team but as one of the ancient brigade, thought that in a different way, the team of Brown, Young, Shaw, McColl, Woodburn, Cox, Waddell, Gillick, Thornton, Duncanson, Caskie, were equally good. The difference being that your team was a great attacking side, while the earlier team were so good defensively, the defence was described as the iron curtain. Mind you, they scored plenty of goals. Just an afterthought, How times have changed. Each of the players listed in both teams was Scottish.

Nice sentiment Tomted - I reckon that you will easily win the prize for naming the oldest/most historical team on this thread! I always love to hear from older Bears about the teams and players of the past, and think it's a terrible shame that the amount of available archive footage of these legends of our club are all too rare. I expect Alan Morton won't get too many mentions either, another sad example of the limited footage available.

It is of course subjective , going to put a couple of my dad's favourites in , Dawson , Jardine, Caldow,,Greig, Woodburn,Baxter ,Waddell, Souness,Durrant,, Stein,Morton , no Gazza or Laudrup but they would come of the bench when the opposition were gubbed, so difficult to leave out wee Wullie,super and bud .

Goram;
Jardine, Munro, Johnstone, Smith;
Gazza, Russell, MacDonald;
McLean, McCoist, W.Johnston.
Subs: McCloy, Robertson,Lauders, Souness, Hateley, Stein.
Would only pick Goram, Jardine, Gazza and McCoist from that team.
How on earth you could choose McCloy over Chris Woods or Alan McGregor is beyond me.

Awesome post, my old man used to rhyme this team off all the time as it was his team as a kid, would also know most of the ones just before and after, but that was the team for him. Found some of his old programmes from that era recently and it was great to see, mostly, that line up throughout those years.

Goram - Feb 1992

Tavernier 2018
Gough 1992
Mclaren 1994
Van bronkorst 2006

Gattuso 2006

Laudrup 1994
Gascoigne 1996
Ferguson 2002

Hateley 1993
Negri 1997


From players I've watched. Negri in that period was the best finisher I've seen, Hateley dragged us to 6 in a row & was great during 7. RB was a problem, never seen enough of Gary Stevens, then we had Mcpherson, Cleland, Wright, Porrini etc. Cleland is very underrated though.

Think that team only played together 9 times whic is astonishing.
