Keepy Uppy Haiku.

Nothing quite like Jim Baxter’s
Keepy uppy though.



Wembley 1967, Jim Baxter decides to play keepy uppy along the touchline as Scotland, in Jim Baxter’s finest hour, take the current World Champions apart.

If The Mighty Magyars of 1953?, as a team had shown The World how the game was changing, then this wonderful individual performance by Baxter, showed how one man, (whilst playing the game of kids on the street to boot) can stamp his mark and be so instrumental in dictating the outcome of a game as well.

Blinding games and terrific performances like these become things to wonder at, even more so when revisited in newsreels, books and old radio commentary’s, oh and yootube!

Stay well, be lucky and keep smiling.
