In the third edition of our occasional series My Favourite Year, former Scotland international Pat Nevin looks back at Chelsea’s 1983/84 season with Daniel Gray.

Interview: Jason Thomson
Arbroath defender Jason Thomson joins Daniel Gray for a fascinating delve into his 16-year career. Thomson gives a behind-the-scenes insight into rising though the Hearts ranks, life under Vladimir Romanov, happy times at Turnbull Hutton’s Raith and Red Lichties glory with Dick Campbell. In a candid, compelling conversation, Thomson talks about the challenges of starting a first ‘real job’ aged 31, the perils of being a lower division footballer and the anxieties faced by players as they approach their career ends.
