Where Do You Live
|Although probably not the most skilful of players,the
'Buzz' made up for it by the amount of hard graft and
sheer effort. He was a really genuine person as well and
the fans could relate to him so easily.
I used to write to him,and he came and picked me up in my home town and took me to Tynie to meet the players. I was so nervous when I saw his wee VW Golf coming along,but after a couple of minutes in his car I felt that I had known him all my life. Ray Dunlop and my friend were there as well.
He also wrote to me and sent a photo of himself playing for Toronto Blizzards in Canada. I was devastated when he left the JTs. I don't think too many of today's 'prima donnas' would spare the effort to do that for a fan. Drew Busby is simply the best.
|A 2-0 win over Celtic in 1978. He scored both goals. The
first a screamer from the edge of the box, flew past
A Scottish cup replay at Greenock,Busby scored the only goal with a peach of a header,and left me tickets for the match.
Any penalty he took was memorable. Just blasted as hard as he could,magic!
|When you see some players who have won a major honour
I think it is a travesty that a player like Drew Busby
never did. He is my hero of all heroes.
Love the guy tae bits.
