In 1990 Hospital Radio Perth had a very active member who was a minister from the USA living and working in Perth. He was keen to experience all aspects of Scotland while he and his family were here. He was always asking about how the Saint Soccer team were doing so we decided to invite him along to a game. It turned out to be Saints 5 Aberdeen 0 and myself and the other commentator were just about dancing with delight. Having spent some time explaining football to the guest, I decided at the end to ask him, live on air, what he thought of the match. He replied, "It was all right I suppose but St Johnstone should have made more use of penalties!" I swear I saw tumbleweed roll past as we tried to come up with an answer.
Anyhoo, one of the heroes of that day was two goal Mark Treanor who did take advantage of the penalty. Mark joins us on Tuesday TeamTalk this coming Tuesday.
