One had the ability to sign players on £5k plus per week and run up millions of debt though. I notice you conveniently forget the home defeats to Motherwell, killie etc, the cup exits to Partick, st Mirren etc also
The fact you point out that Duffy, an average at best manager, took Bonnettis squad to a cup final underlines my point, Ivano was so poor he finished bottom six with virtually the same team. He was a chancer that happened to know a lot of good footballers.
Think I’ve said it before, it was like hiring a £2000 a night hooker and jigging that you got a handshake.
