You have an article on Jock Stein on your website.
I worked as a train driver in Cardiff and was working on the night of his death.

After the game finished word soon got around about Jocks death, I was at Cardiff Central station where tens of thousands of fans were congregated to catch overnight trains back to Scotland after the game.

It was the most eiriest situation I have ever experienced even now over 20 years.
Of all the Scottish fans which totalled thousand all passing through the station everyone was silent, to see so many people stunned into silence was an experience I will never forget.
