Macphail, John So sad to hear about John hopefully he will come out of his coma.
I was at school with John, Kirkton High In Dundee. John was tall and well built for his age. He used to stride through the corridors of the school and of course the girls loved him

Macphail, John Forget all of the above career history for 'Big' John McPhail he was a Legend at my club and his home town 'Dundee' long before the Blades. I can still see the huge curly mop and moustache typically 70's great leader and kept his best performances for Celtic & Rangers games. Think he was an own goal legend too ha ha.
