No, not a newspaper headline from John Lambie's playing days with St Johnstone.

The "Dundee Courier" reported on 31/1/1992 that John was hoping to get out of hospital that day. He suffered two cracked ribs and fluid on the lung but Director Brown McMaster was able to assure the players there were no hard feelings on John's part and that it was something he would have join in himself as a player.
