Discuss Jocky Wilson!!! in the TalkCeltic Pub area at TalkCeltic.net.
Who was he,tell me what you Bhoys know??
The sexiest darts player of all time. Total *!
He was that drunk at times he just held the darts and they threw the dart board at him.
van morrison sang a song about him
Onion Throwing Champion on Planet VUUUUUR
I don't know if he was but I always assumed he was a hun
Thought for a minute he was dead when I seen the thread title.
actually thought he was one of us Marie!!!
this lot were ahead of their time-
ps-loved seeing the wee man gubbing Bristow
He might have been a Tim, going to have to try find out.
Aye, Bristow was a smarmy git, plus Jockey being a Shot, had to want him to win
Hahahahaha.........that was what it was basically like back then, they must have been blootered at times
actually think you might be right @Marie ....my loose assumption was based on the fact that he had an Argentinian wife called Malvina after the Falklands and remember the story at that time.....think the war with Argentina actually caused bother in their house after her been named after them in Spanish!!
Just read about that there, didn't know about his wife. Found nothing so far about him following any football, well call him an East Fife fan lol
It was the horses i felt sorry for, he was a fat *.
I'll ask my dad who he supported - he played darts with him every Thursday night before he was famous, at the Lister Bar in Kirkcaldy
See every time he came on tele my da would say that bitter wee hun *. So that was always my view.
Described as a blue nose at his funeral reading. So he was a Chelsea fan.
Bristow was a hero of mines, so naturally didn’t support Wilson over him.
Amazing how he could play with a drink in him, unfortunately eventually it catches up with you no matter who you are. I heard Bristow took his death really bad, shows the respect within rivalry that can happen.
Next Wednesday night at 9pm on BBC One Scotland an hour long Documentary 'Jocky Wilson Said' will make its broadcasting debut.Some rarely seen footage of this colourful character and interviews with friends,rivals and fans.Should be an interesting watch as he was a very flawed character of course.
Then of course it will be released on BBC I Player straight after..
