After an undistinguished five years in a regional league during the war, Celtic emerged into peacetime with a new manager Jimmy McGrory and a team largely unrecognisable from the side of the late 30s.
But defeats in the 1961 and 1963 Scottish Cup finals, the 1964 League Cup final and in the European Cup Winners' Cup semi-final in 1965 proved that good players were not enough at the top level.

 We forgot about Janet Cooke's Jimmy
She claimed to have graduated from Vassar College, she claimed to speak four languages, she claimed to have attended the Sorbonne in Paris; in fact, these lies-- all unchecked until after the fiasco of Jimmy-- landed her the job at the Post.
Journalism took many jabs on the chin that were wrapped in the sins of Janet Cooke, and in the media-bashing, questioning-reporter's-ethics flurry that followed, nobody bothered to ask whether, despite Jimmy's fictionality, it didn't remain true that American hell-holes devoured some anonymous 8-year-olds into addictive oblivion.
The problem Janet Cooke, reporter, set out to investigate seems to be hounding the nation yet, and journalism is wasting time trying to decide if she should be allowed back into our ranks.

The "Hofbräu-Jagd" was won by the team Bartko — McGrory — Madsen (the last two well recovered from Bremen), but the boys from Switzerland managed to pass the number of 100 points already the first evening, and that gave them the first bonus-lap and the lead in the overall.
