Hey, Eric Black, are you Tommy McLean in disguise?
This was a thoroughly unpleasant trip down memory lane, as the ghost of Hammy's Hamsters came haunting. The Motherwell formation consisted of a goalie and 10 defenders. The only person happy about this was Rab Douglas, who was able to concentrate on ridding himself of his New Year hangover and read the Harry Potter book he got for Christmas.
Unfortunately Rab wasn't the only one who appeared to be nursing a hangover. This was the one game in a hundred that featured a below par Henrik Larsson. But he still scored, we still love him and he's still the King of Kings.
The real star of the show today was John Hartson, who hasn't looked back since being allowed to start the last Old Firm game. Nine minutes were left when Henrik's scuffed shot bounced over the grounded 'keeper to relieve the tension. Hartson made the scoreline look a bit more respectable in the last minute.
