The Two Steves

Recommended Posts

Mackenzie and McCall. Unsung heroes of the 1990-1 team? My favourite memories are an offside and overweight Mackenzie scoring against Barnsley in front of the Kop and Hirsty shouting "fvckin hell Macca" after another misplaced pass in a 1-0 win away at Hull. Glory days...

Big Macs goal and McCalls volley against Newcastle were two of the memorable goals of the season.

I always remember McCall running (crawling) through on goal in the quarter final of the Rumbelows Cup at Coventry - 1on1 he put it wide. Didn't seem p**sed off - he just looked happy to not have had a heart attack!!

Steve Mackenzie is a hero purely by the fact he presented me with my York County u12's leading scorer trophy... a long time ago!! :D

Mackenzie had had his day when he played for us. Sorry. He may have been decent but didn't do much for us. :madine: :Hirsty:

Both bit part players really. We used to call Mcall fed up face as he always looked miserable

I was of course slighlty taking the wee wee with the original post - yes they were bit part players but good ones - particularly McCall - I'd forgotten the Newcastle goal (off to see what I can find of that on youtube...)

McCall sets up the goal in Hull game I mentioned. Maybe Hirsty was a bit harsh with the swearing at him I heard later in the game. I remember being a bit shocked as a young lad that my heroes might swear!

Remember this game well few owls on the home end big Viv made a good debut, coming out was awful Hull had a bit of a rep and remember them jumping on away coaches and attacking fans.

We were side on rather than behind the goal. Stood right at the front - caught the ball for I think the only time in my life and heard Hirsty swear!

Haha! I remember that miss. Alan Parry on commentary seemed genuinely annoyed at the amount of chances we missed to kill the tie that night. He ripped McCall to shreds with, "That was the easiest of the lot."

Steve Makenzie scored a backheader at Plymouth in that season's league campaign. Didn't he also score a belter for City in the "Ricky Villa" Cup Final? Great moustache.

Haha Steve Makenzie and his superb 'Mickey Quinn' tasche !!! .... The last time I saw him was in the carpark by the owls shop and for some strange reason he was holding one of those 'trundle wheels' that clicked every time they went round used to measure distances....might have been seeing how far he could walk before he had to sit down 'out of puff' !!! remember his goal against Barnsley..... mass celebrations followed!!! .... Lets have some more of that soon !!!!

Some mass celebrations yesterday. Just a taster of what might be if we go up!

Big Ron made some astute sigings. Steve Mckenzie being one. Maybe past his best, but in a long season we needed extra bodies and experience. His winner at Plymouth was enough to confirm his value that season
