Lou Macari Profile

Lou Macari

Luigi Ma­cari, born Ed­in­burgh, Scot­land, June 7, 1949. Al­though Lou Ma­cari of­ten un­der­played his Itali­an roots, many re­garded him as an icon for the Scot­tish-Itali­an com­munity. In a pro­fes­sion­al play­ing ca­reer that las­ted from 1967 to 1986, he was an at­tack minded and goalscor­ing mid­field man who pro­vided ster­ling ser­vice to Celt­ic, Man­chester Uni­ted, and Swin­don To­wn. Ma­cari also en­joyed a fine in­ter­na­tion­al ca­reer for his na­tive Scot­land, con­trib­ut­ing five goals in 24 ap­pear­ances for The Tartan Terriers.

Born in the noble city of Ed­in­burgh and bro­ught up in the Ayrshire sea­side re­sort of Largs, Lou Ma­cari star­ted out wi­th Glas­gow Celt­ic where he ul­ti­mately es­tab­lished him­self in the all con­quer­ing te­am of the early 1970´s and went on to win the Scot­tish Foot­ball Lea­gue Cham­pi­on­ship in 1969-70, 1970-71, 1971-72, and 1972-73, and the Scot­tish FA Cup in 1971 and 1972, un­der the stern and wi­se lead­er­ship of le­gendary Park­head head coach Jock Stein. At Celt­ic, Ma­cari was a mem­ber of the Qual­ity Street Gang which in­cluded tal­en­ted young­sters like Da­vid Cat­tanach, Ge­orge Con­nelly, Ken­ny Dalg­lish, Vic Dav­id­son, John Gor­man, Dav­ie Hay, Pat Mc­Clus­k­ey, Dan­ny Mc­Grain, Bri­an McLaugh­lin, and Paul Wil­son. At the age of 18, he was giv­en his com­pet­it­ive de­but for Celt­ic by Stein in a com­fort­able 2-0 Scot­tish Lea­gue Cup Quart­er-Fi­nal Sec­ond Leg tri­umph ag­ainst Ayr Uni­ted at Somer­set Park on the 27th of Septem­ber 1967 and re­cor­ded his fir­st goal for the club in a clo­se 2-1 Scot­tish Fir­st Di­vi­sion vic­tory over Dun­dee at Dens Park on the 30th of April 1969.

Con­ceiv­ably, one of Macari´s greatest mo­ments as a Celt­ic Park play­er ar­rived when The Celts quite simply de­con­struc­ted Ed­die Turnbull´s Hi­ber­ni­an to the tune of a 6-1 score in the Scot­tish FA Cup Fi­nal in front of more than 100,000 people at Hamp­den Park on the 6th of May 1972. Celt­ic cap­tain Bill McNeil, a Lis­bon Li­on, put Stein´s si­de in­to an early 1-0 lead when the cent­ral de­fender con­ver­ted a well-de­livered free-kick by mid­fielder Tom­my Cal­laghan af­ter two min­utes, on­ly for ex-Hearts and Dun­dee Uni­ted ace Alan Gor­don to equal­ise for the East­er Road out­fit wi­th a clo­se ran­ge goal ten min­utes la­ter. John “Dixie” Deans, a bar­gain £17,500 sign­ing from Mother­well the pre­vi­ous year, then re­gistered his fir­st goal of the con­test as the for­ward bril­liantly head­ed ho­me a free-kick from Bob­by Mur­doch, also a Lis­bon Li­on, in the 23rd min­ute of pro­ceed­ings and the pro­lif­ic marks­man fol­lowed up wi­th goals in the 54th and 74th min­utes to com­plete a tre­mend­ous tre­ble be­fore Ma­cari ad­ded two more in the 83rd and 87th min­utes to make the score­board at Hamp­den re­flect a 6-1 ad­vant­age for The Bhoys. Ma­cari would start off the fol­low­ing cam­paign in sim­il­ar ex­cel­lent fash­ion and his goal scor­ing qual­it­ies would soon at­tract the keen in­terest of a num­ber of lead­ing clubs in England.

Much im­pressed wi­th the con­sist­ent per­form­ances de­livered by the free flow­ing front­man, re­cently ap­poin­ted Man­chester Uni­ted su­premo Tom­my Doc­herty ev­entually sig­ned Lou Ma­cari for a trans­fer fee of £200,000 mid­way in­to the 1972-73 sea­son in or­der to strengthen his age­ing fir­st te­am squad. A ded­ic­ated per­former, Ma­cari fou­nd the back of the net on his Fir­st Di­vi­sion de­but for Man­chester Uni­ted in an evenly con­tested 2-2 draw ag­ainst fel­low re­leg­a­tion strug­glers West Ham Uni­ted in front of an at­tend­ance of over 50,000 spec­tat­ors at Old Traf­ford on the 20th of Jan­uary 1973 and be­came an im­me­di­ate hit wi­th the ho­me sup­port­ers. He net­ted ag­ain in a heavy 4-1 loss to Ips­wich To­wn at Port­man Road on the 17th of Feb­ruary and hit the win­ner in a 2-1 vic­tory over bot­tom-of-the-ta­ble West Brom­wich Al­bion at Old Traf­ford on the 3rd of Mar­ch. He also sco­red in a 3-1 de­feat to Fir­st Di­vi­sion new boys Birm­ing­ham City at St Andrew´s the fol­low­ing week and net­ted his fi­nal goal of the cam­paign in an en­ter­tain­ing 2-2 draw wi­th Sto­ke City at Vic­tor­ia Gro­und on the 14th of April. Now firm­ly es­tab­lished in the Man­chester Uni­ted si­de, Ma­cari re­cor­ded his fir­st goal of the 1973-74 sea­son in a 3-2 loss ag­ainst New­castle Uni­ted at St Ja­mes´ Park on the 17th of Nov­ember and hit an­oth­er in a 2-1 de­feat at ho­me to Shef­field Uni­ted on Box­ing Day be­fore grabbing the open­er in a 2-0 ho­me win over Ips­wich To­wn three days la­ter. Af­ter scor­ing the win­ning goal in a nar­row 1-0 FA Cup Third Ro­und tri­umph ag­ainst Third Di­vi­sion op­pon­ents Ply­mouth Argyle at Old Traf­ford on the 5th of Jan­uary, Ma­cari bag­ged the win­ner in a 1-0 re­venge vic­tory ag­ainst Shef­field Uni­ted at Bramall on the 2nd of Mar­ch, and then sco­red his sixth of the cam­paign in a 2-0 win over fel­low re­leg­a­tion can­did­ates Nor­wich City at Car­row Road on the 6th of April.

The Scot was la­ter con­ver­ted in­to an of­fens­ive ori­ent­ated mid­field ad­min­is­trat­or by fel­low coun­try­man Tom­my Doc and he would ev­entually make a habit of com­ing for­ward from deep po­s­i­tions to score im­port­ant goals for the Old Traf­ford si­de. And even tho­ugh Macari´s fir­st years wi­th Man­chester Uni­ted were spent in a strug­gling te­am which ul­ti­mately fou­nd them­selves re­leg­ated to Lea­gue Di­vi­sion Two at the end of the day, the dy­nam­ic mid­field war­ri­or nev­er­the­less en­joyed his foot­ball un­der the able and sound guid­ance of the for­mer Scot­land boss and be­came one of the key play­ers in bring­ing the once mighty club back to Lea­gue Di­vi­sion One where they rightly be­longed. And wi­th gif­ted foot­ballers such as de­fenders Mar­tin Bu­chan, Al­ex For­syth, and Stew­art Hou­s­ton; mid­field­ers Ger­ry Da­ly, Bri­an Green­hoff, and Sam­my Mc­Ilroy; and for­wards Wil­lie Mor­gan and Stu­art Pear­son, Man­chester Uni­ted settled down well in un­fa­mil­i­ar sur­round­ings and the now awakened gi­ant won the Sec­ond Di­vi­sion title and pro­mo­tion back to the top-flight at the very fir­st at­tempt. Uni­ted also rea­ched the Lea­gue Cup Semi-Fi­nals, but lost 3-2 on ag­greg­ate to Nor­wich City, and were knock­ed out of the FA Cup in the third ro­und by Walsall as they lost 3-2 af­ter ex­tra time in the re­play at Fel­lows Park.

Ma­cari sco­red his fir­st goals of the 1974-75 sea­son when he was on tar­get twice in a 5-1 ham­mer­ing of Third Di­vi­sion Charl­ton Ath­let­ic at Old Traf­ford in the sec­ond ro­und of the Lea­gue Cup on the 11th of Septem­ber. He got on the score­sheet ag­ain in a 3-0 win over Black­pool at Bloom­field Road on the 19th of Oct­ober and hit his sec­ond brace of the cam­paign in a 4-0 tri­umph ag­ainst Ox­ford Uni­ted on the 2nd of Oct­ober. He re­gistered an­oth­er brace in a 3-2 Lea­gue Cup Third Ro­und win at ho­me to Di­vi­sion One Burn­ley on the 13th of Nov­ember and net­ted his fourth double of the sea­son in an en­thralling 4-4 draw ag­ainst lowly pla­ced Shef­field Wed­nesday at Hills­bor­ough on the 7th of Dec­ember be­fore scor­ing a goal in 3-0 Lea­gue Cup Fourth Ro­und Re­play vic­tory over Fir­st Di­vi­sion new boys Middles­brough on ho­me soil on the 18th of the same month. The per­petu­al per­former kept up his scor­ing touch and pro­duced yet an­oth­er brace as Man­chester Uni­ted drew 2-2 at ho­me to fel­low pro­mo­tion chasers Nor­wich City in a Lea­gue Cup Semi-Fi­nal Fir­st Leg fix­ture on the 15th of Jan­uary and then net­ted one of the goals in a 4-0 ho­me win ag­ainst re­leg­a­tion threat­ened Car­diff City on the 1st of Mar­ch. On East­er Fri­day, he notched the open­er in a 1-1 draw wi­th Bris­tol Rov­ers at East­ville be­fore de­liv­er­ing the win­ner in a 2-1 vic­tory ag­ainst York City at Old Traf­ford on East­er Sat­urday. Af­ter get­ting on the score­sheet in a 3-2 ho­me vic­tory over Old­ham Ath­let­ic two days la­ter, he bag­ged the de­cider in a 1-0 away win over South­ampton on the 5th of April and then net­ted his fi­nal goal of the pro­mo­tion cam­paign in a 4-0 tri­umph at ho­me to Black­pool on the 26th of the same month, fin­ish­ing the sea­son on a total of eight­een goals.

On the open­ing day of the 1975-76 cam­paign, Lou Ma­cari re­cor­ded a brace in Man­chester United´s 2-0 win ag­ainst Wolver­hampton Wan­derers in front of a 32,000 strong ho­me crowd at Mo­lineux Sta­dium. On the 10th of Septem­ber, he sco­red one of the goals in a 2-1  Lea­gue Cup Sec­ond Ro­und vic­tory over Fourth Di­vi­sion Brent­ford at Old Traf­ford and fou­nd the net net ag­ain in a 2-1 suc­cess ag­ainst fel­low Fir­st Di­vi­sion si­de As­ton Vil­la in a Lea­gue Cup Third Ro­und fix­ture at Vil­la Park on the 12th of the same month. He net­ted Man­chester United´s sec­ond goal in a 2-2 draw ag­ainst Man­chester City at Maine Road on the 27th of Septem­ber and head­ed a con­sol­a­tion in a 2-1 de­feat to West Ham Uni­ted at Boleyn Gro­und four weeks la­ter. Af­ter scor­ing the fourth goal of a 4-1 rout of bot­tom-of-the-ta­ble Shef­field Uni­ted at Bramall Lane on the 13th of Dec­ember, he grabbed the open­er in an even­tu­al 1-1 draw ag­ainst Ever­ton at Good­ison Park on the 23rd of the same month and then bag­ged the win­ner in a 2-1 vic­tory over near­by Burn­ley at Old Traf­ford four days later.

Wi­th the cal­en­dar turn­ing to 1976, Ma­cari got him­self a goal in a re­as­sur­ing  3-1 tri­umph ag­ainst Birm­ing­ham City at Old Traf­ford on the 31st of Jan­uary and pro­duced a late equal­iser in a 1-1 draw to Cov­entry City at High­field Road on the 7th of Feb­ruary. He re­sumed his net find­ing form and fou­nd the tar­get in a 2-1 FA Cup Fifth Ro­und vic­tory over Lei­cester City at Fil­bert Street on the 14th of the same month and re­gistered a con­sol­a­tion in a 2-1 de­feat ag­ainst As­ton Vil­la at Vila Park sev­en days la­ter be­fore bag­ging a goal in a 4-0 trash­ing of West Ham Uni­ted at Old Traf­ford the fol­low­ing week. Wi­th the sea­son ap­proach­ing its fi­nal sta­ges, Ma­cari sco­red his last goal of the cam­paign in a 1-0 tri­umph ag­ainst Burn­ley at Turf Moor on the 19th of April, tak­ing his total tally to 15. Man­chester Uni­ted ev­entually ended the sea­son in a highly re­spect­able third po­s­i­tion, just three points be­hind run­ners-up Queens Park Ran­gers and four points shy of Fir­st Di­vi­sion Cham­pi­ons Liver­pool, and they also rea­ched the FA Cup Fi­nal at Wemb­ley, on­ly to suf­fer a 1-0 loss ag­ainst Sec­ond Di­vi­sion out­fit South­ampton. The Ed­in­burgh­er fi­nally won an FA Cup Win­ners medal the fol­low­ing cam­paign, tho­ugh, when The Man­chester Reds be­at al­ready crow­ned cham­pi­ons Liver­pool by a 2-1 score thanks to goals from “Pan­cho” Pear­son and strik­ing part­ner Jim­my Green­hoff in the 51st and 55th min­utes re­spect­ively. As a Man­chester Uni­ted play­er, Ma­cari notched up 78 goals in 329 Foot­ball Lea­gue mat­ches for the club be­fore he ul­ti­mately an­nounced his re­tire­ment from act­ive foot­ball at the end of the 1983-84 campaign.

A Scot­tish in­ter­na­tion­al, he pulled on the fam­ous dark blue shirt of Scot­land on twenty-four oc­ca­sions fol­low­ing his seni­or de­but in a nar­row 1-0 Brit­ish Ho­me Cham­pi­on­ship tri­umph ag­ainst Wales at Hamp­den Park on the 24th of May 1972. He sco­red his fir­st goals for The Tartan Ter­ri­ers when he hit a brace each si­de of the in­ter­val in a 2-2 draw wi­th The So­cial­ist Fed­er­al Re­pub­lic of Yugo­slavia at Es­ta­dio Gov­er­nador Magal­haes Pinto in Be­lo Ho­ri­zonte in the Brazili­an In­de­pend­ence Cup on the 29th of June 1972 and then net­ted the open­er in a com­pre­hens­ive 4-1 Wor­ld Cup Quali­fier vic­tory over Den­mark at Idraet­s­parken in Copen­ha­gen on the 18th of Oct­ober the same year, whi­le his fi­nal goals for the coun­try of his bir­th came when he sco­red twice in a 4-2 in­ter­na­tion­al friendly tri­umph ag­ainst Chile at Es­ta­dio Nacion­al Ju­lio Mar­tinez Pra­danos in San­ti­ago on the 15th of June 1977.
