Comment:
I didn't become a Hearts fan until I was 12, in 1984, so I have to say I missed a lot of McDonald's playing days. Obviously remember him as a manager though and the team spirit he built (with the help of Jardine) in that 1985/86 season was incredible. He turned a bunch of mostly average footballers (if we're being honest here, with a couple of exceptions) into double contenders. Remember at that time Aberdeen were still really strong, and with the Glasgow and Dundee clubs both in the mix as well it was all the more extraordinary that we came as close as we did to pulling it off. The fact that we did I put largely down to him. Although, I remember the day before the Cup Final after we'd lost the league he was interviewed on the Castle, and he looked a sad and beleaguered man. As for Waldo, nothing more needs to be said. The man was a breath of fresh air to Scottish football and although he will always be remembered by some for his one major mistake in life, he saved the club, turned it around, and will always be a legend in my eyes. Sniff.
