After a long hiatus I announce that Forgotten Stand will be no more.
I will be moving to http://decadentalley.wordpress.com/ along with some Fg’s texts that will migrate with me.
I raise my glass to everyone that took the time to read this blog and bid you farewell.
These are the early days of Forgotten Stand. As such, new features will arise and be added. The Announcements category serves the purpose of communicating issues unrelated, directly, with the stories presented. The References category focuses on career summaries of supporting appearances in the stories, for example Tommy MacLeod the Hearts team captain.
We started this journey with the sadly underrated genius of William Gallagher and introduced the strange tale of Isao Himura. This week we will get acquainted with Peñarol’s Pablo Cortázar the box to box Uruguayan legend.
Fear not that the players already introduced will be forgotten, more chapters will succeed the first ones. Namely Chapter II of Gallagher’s story will concentrate on explaining the “Anfield Road Feat”. While Chapter I of Isao will delve on the his origins and first steps into a larger world.
Here you will find the tales of the unknown.
Each character might have one or more chapters. These might include detailed descriptions of crucial events or just a depiction of one’s career. New chapters may be added over time.
What better way to begin this journey through the misty pages of history, than with the story of William Gallagher, “The blackbird of Edinburgh”, whose playing feats were unfortunately not as frequent as his absent performances.
