Is that the full name of that wee Hearts lad, sure that's just what they said.

Must be a bear :confused:

Is he a Rangers fan or was his dad?

Jimenez
10-11-2010, 23:15
Seems so, I started the exact same thread asking this as well.

From Ayrshire and that name. He had to be :)

buffaloskinners

his dad is .

RangersRus
10-11-2010, 23:15
On here a few times.

Apparently his dad is a massive bear,but he took the timmy side of his mum when the parents split up. The tims will never want him with a name like that though!

Boy was the best player on the park tonight,dare I say it along with Ian Black.

Templeton was immense against Hibs on Sunday and the clarification seekers tonight.
He was very lightweight as a youngster but always had the ability.
The next player to make Hearts a few quid.

His Dad is Ayr United legend Henry, I've been told on this forum that he's crazy about Rangers.

David Templeton is a celtic fan 100%

Feck me, another one that will no doubt be argued over from now until the end of time.

Henry Templeton was definitely a bear, i know plenty of people who know him, including my dad, as far as i'm aware David is a Celtc fan

charlie chalk
10-11-2010, 23:44
So Henry Templeton, his father, is a red hot bear and gave him the David Cooper name. The parents then split up, son went to live with the mother, who is from the dark side, and was subsequently brainwashed into the way of the filth.

Is this the official answer then, to stop another 25 pager?

The lads got good ability and that's all that matters.

Going by tonights performance we should be bringing him back from the bad side!!!

wee henry (his da) wis a superb wee player for ayr when they won the 2nd division a few years back and went on a good run in the cups and hes a ringer fur his dad ,came fae shettleston , dont know if thats timmy or no country, but anyhoo hes a prospect :)

scottyboy_1
11-11-2010, 00:32
Ive been raving about him for 2 seasons now! Exactly the player we could be bringing in

Dado_1873
11-11-2010, 00:37
Think it said his Dad played for Clydebank aswell, don't know if that had anything to do with the Cooper thing or that its just because his Dad's a bear...

davieboy1873
11-11-2010, 00:39
The middle name is after Davie Cooper who was the best player his dad ever played with or saw apparantly

Remosaki
11-11-2010, 00:42
Oh no...another player to play well in a handful of games then score against either of the Old Firm for folk to start creaming themselves about.
Im sure i even saw Sol Bamba being mentioned as a contender to replace Davie, but perhaps my monitor was playing tricks on me!

Fair play to the legendary Henry for naming his son after Coop though. Great thing to do. I still dont want him in our team though! ;)

I really hope we are watching this young guy very closely. IMO would be a terrific asset to our squad, pacey direct winger also capable of laying on the goals.

11-11-2010, 01:37
And would sign for us in a heartbeat ;)

No I knew him from his Stenhousemuir days and he is a sellick fan

saki2

Saw him score a hat trick for stenny as a 16 yo against. East fife. When he was warming up he looked like a ball boy as he was so young

you may be on to something there as his fathers first name is henry and there were stores by that name in the 70's too. similar to stores you named above. :angel:

I remember him playing for Ayr United in the mid 1980s.

adamski
11-11-2010, 12:22
I don't think his middle name is Cooper, just his first name is Davie after Cooper.

He's very like his old man on the ball.


On top form for the jambos this now after a few years flitting in and out

Is this the official answer then, to stop another 25 pager?A few people have said this about his mother but i really don't think it's true. I've been mates with his elder brother for well over 20 years and we stayed right next to eachother growing up. There was a catholic school quite literally yards away from our front doors but David didn't go to that school. He instead went to the same non-denominational school as his brother and i had went to which was a wee bit further away. Surely if she was trying to brainwash him it would have been convenient to send him to the RC school that was right on our doorstep? I reckon his leanings could be put down to the fact that we lived on a housing scheme in Parkhead!! Rangers fans were few and far between in our street at that point and maybe he has been influenced by other people.

Coop711
11-11-2010, 14:39
i predict he'll be another over hyped young Scottish lad who fades into the distance in the years to come.

having a wee purple patch at the moment - but so have many, yet failed to deliver consistency and develop as they get older.

seen it all before.

Don't give a **** if he's a tim. He's more than welcome to do a Neil McCann and be fixed if we sign him.

Bingo. Said on here a few times I played in the same team as him when I was younger and always had a good bit of banter about the football.

Henry Cooper mentioned it in his interview the other day as well.

"He is named after Cooper, I don't know how happy he is about it though"

Romanov would never allow a talented player at hearts go to either of the OF for anything less than 30 odd million to clear his debts anyway :D

Jimmy Tam
11-11-2010, 15:54
He's contracted with us until 2013 and I hope we try and get him tied down on a longer deal!

It's still very early days with him but he has the ability to go a long way in the game provided he can stay injury free. Potentially our next player we move on for big dosh.

Seems about right.

Why would he come back on the pitch and ask to swap the Scum full backs (the guy from British Honduras) jersey if he wasn`t.

MountVernonBluenose
11-11-2010, 16:26

He doesn't want to know his Dad who left home years ago and for reasons best known to himself grew up supporting Celtic.

Good wee player though, I'd still take him.

Not in any shape or form, He's been brought up with both sides. He's quite a quiet lad to be honest. He is also quite calm and relaxed on a night out. He doesn't go mad. He will have his amount then go away. Not that I see him much of him anymore as he stays in Edinburgh. :D

If Rangers offered him a decent contract I don't think he would turn it down, put it that way.

Stop the facade. Robbie and the others are right as I went the same school as him and knew him myself. He is 100% a Celtic fan. Decent guy though.

if we had used all our squad, gave these younger players more game time, we wouldn`t be in a postion of walter smith talking about burnout after 12 games of the SPL season, they have the hunger, just give them the platform

With a name like that he will end up at Ibrox:D

Been really impressed with his performances for Hearts lately. I think he's one for the future. Would like to see him at Ibrox. I liked the look of that Andy Driver too but he's maybe a bit too injury prone these days. Was an England U-21 international a year or so ago so age is on his side.....might be too much to buy him though.

Thoughts?

Interview: David Cooper Templeton, Hearts winger

Published Date: 05 December 2010
By Andrew Smith
Hearts' new golden boy carries monikers of Ayr legend father and Ibrox great Cooper but tells Andrew Smith he aims to forge his own identity

IT is not known whether David Cooper Templeton has an interest in the music of Johnny Cash. It would be a pity if the Hearts winger were unaware of the country colossus's work. Or A Boy Named Sue at least. A song that expresses a sentiment with which the latest Clydesdale Bank young player of the month could surely all too readily identify. The protagonist in it bemoans the moniker his dad landed him, even if done for the best intentions. Pretty much how Templeton feels about the fact he has had to live with footballing father Henry's fascination with legendary Rangers winger Davie Cooper since his birth was registered.

"I didn't really like my name growing up, to be honest," Templeton says. "My dad left and I went to my mum's side who were all Celtic fans so I ended up following them. So it was odd being a Celtic fan called Davie Cooper. I got a bit of stick when I was younger but I obviously don't bother about the Old Firm any more."

And Templeton doesn't seem to bother about what people may attempt to invest in the fact he is a winger just like his namesake. His dad has jokingly said that with the christening act he mapped out his son's destiny. Yet the youngster suggests another exhilerating Rangers wide man may have been just as influential.

"I don't know why I got the name because I've an older brother," he says. "It's weird, you see it in the programme as David Cooper Templeton but I'd rather just be known as my own name. He was known as an unbelievable player and if I could get anywhere to half as good as he was then it would be amazing. When I was younger, he always told me about him and I saw a few videos of him. Obviously what I saw was amazing. The way he just went past people made it look so easy, that's what I liked about him being a winger. It was good for me watching players like that. I grew up as a Celtic fan but I loved watching Brian Laudrup because of the way he played.

"When I was younger I liked playing up front, I used to want to go past everyone and do everything myself, try and score goals. I wanted all the glory about scoring goals. Obviously the older I got, managers wanted to start trying me out wide because I liked going past people. It's probably the best thing for me, if I was playing striker now I wouldn't be doing so well."

The way the slight 5ft 9in Templeton plays is said to recall the skilful trickery of his striker old man. Footage of the Ayr United hall-of-famer - whose west of Scotland lifestyle put limits on the lengths his attacking abilities ought to have taken him - was in short supply for young David, though.

"I only saw a couple of my dad's games. One was against Celtic [in a League Cup tie in Glasgow in 1990] and that's the only one I remember because that's when he broke his leg. I heard he was a good player and everyone tells me that, but I want to do everything myself and want to be known for myself and not as Henry Templeton's son," says the player, who lives close to Celtic's ground in the Parkhead area.

In his award-earning month of November, Templeton has acheived his aim of carving out his own place in the Scottish game and, it might be argued, eclipsing even the impression left on it by his dad. The 21-year-old has netted in three of Hearts' past four games. In his longest run of consecutive first-team outings, in this spell he has proved a major contributor to the Gorgie club's quartet of 2-0 wins that has brought them their longest sequence of clean-sheet league victories in 40 years. Templeton can be regarded as the catalyst. Hearts' succession of wins began with his marvellous, mazy run, which saw him cover half the length of the park and take out half the Hibernian team to score the opener in a derby victory at Easter Road. A goal that may claim him end-of-season accolades and screamed out he had truly arrived on the senior stage.

"It was brilliant, to turn round and see the fans was the best feeling I've had in my career so far," he says. "I hope the next few Edinburgh derbies I can do that as well because it helps my confidence so much and I took that into the next game against Celtic."

Another goal in another 2-0 win was not his only spoils from a midweek Tynecastle success. On ESPN, anchor man Ray Stubbs became excited as it appeared the cameras caught Celtic's Emilio Izaguirre asking for Templeton's strip. In reality, it was the other way round, but the winger got more than that off the Honduran; crucially, he also got the better of him to indicate his progress after it had been a very different story in Hearts' 3-0 defeat in Glasgow earlier in the season. "I did play quite well against him in that game," says Templeton. "I was expecting him to go forward more. At Parkhead, every time he got it he just bombed forward. I was having to track him back all the time, so that was a hard game for me. At Tynecastle he never really got to go forward, so it was a lot better for me."

It couldn't get much better for Templeton than right now which is why he was understandably frustrated that the weather put paid to Hearts' scheduled appointment at Ibrox yesterday. Yet, having waited so long to make his expected impact, one weekend's downtime is a minor inconvenience. The player has had to cope with the major variety since his freescoring form for the Hearts reserves in 2008-09 had given rise to a belief he would make the breakthrough the following season. A foot fracture on the second day of pre-season put paid to that promise.


"I came back in November and I broke down again for six weeks with the same thing after one game and then again in January - the same thing," he says.

Templeton was the sort of bright young prospect heard of before he was seen because of his early impact at Stenhousemuir under Des McKeown. He was only 16 when, with the Third Division side trailing 2-0 away to East Fife, he was told to get stripped. "I was playing 17s at the time and Des just says to me to train with the first team one day, then I was in the squad not thinking I'd be involved, but made the bench," he says. "I think he just flung me on for the sake of it and we ended up winning 3-2 and I scored the winner."

He cemented a place and learned the game through being regularly cemented in tough environs. "I was in the first team playing against men. I was 16 and it helped a lot. I toughened up a bit more. Then going to Hearts back to the youth teams, the full-time training helped me so much as well. A combination of both came together and that helped me."

It was something of an eyebrow-raising development when, in January 2007, Hearts academy director John Murray convinced the, then, Lithuanian-heavy club to go native and pay a £30,000 fee for a skelf of a player who had been operating in the country's fourth footballing tier. Yet it didn't concern Templeton, farmed out on loan to Raith Rovers the following season, that Hearts weren't exactly considered to provide the perfect platform for young Scottish talent. "I was happy to go full-time to try and benefit me," says Templeton, who had a trial with Newcastle United around that time. "I wasn't thinking about the first team."

The return of Jim Jefferies last January following the sacking of Csaba Lazlo, however, made the Glaswegian think that first-team opportunities might improve from a two-year situation wherein they had proved irregular.

"I knew about his record of bringing along some great young players first time around at Hearts so I was happy when I heard about the appointment. He's been good with me and the way he wants me to play. He brought through wingers Allan Johnston and Neil McCann and it's great to know that players like that got the chance under him. That has helped me." Templeton has helped himself by walking, and running, the line.

I have to say where is the relevance if he is a ger or a tim?

We have signed players before who are of the other persuasion and they have done likewise. We even have a player at the club who has played for us then them and now us again!

I have to say he is a real young potential, I would love us to sign him in January or the end of the season but he will only be able to sign for us if we have the money. Maybe Whyte will supply that but thats not a done deal.

A real question on the matter would be does anybody know when his contract expires? Maybe a bosman if we can persuade him we are the club for him?

Sunday Herald had interview with him.

By Stewart Fisher, called In the name of the Father. (Yes, fascinating IRA sub-editing)

"My dad just loved Davie Cooper, he was a big fan and I was the one who managed to get his name. I don't know why it was me who got it because I've got a brother who was older. It's weird: you see it in the match programme as David Cooper Templeton, but I'd rather just be known by my own name.

I didn't really like it when I was growing up, to be honest. My dad left and I went to my mum's side of the family who were all Celtic fans so I ended up following them.

Is he worth signing? A player of 21 or so who has just become a semi-regular in the Hearts team?

He has had a couple of good games and scored one outstanding goal.

Would love to get him, although i don't know if we could or what money Hearts would look for.

No he didn't, he got passed him twice, took a kick, and didn't hardly get a touch for the rest of the match

Two good games and he should be signed. The next Ivan Sproule, typical FF obsession with anyone who plays well against the Tarriers.
thats why we were never linked with chic charnley :ninja:

I believe this is true.

Dad supported Rangers, hence the Cooper bit, but he was raised a mhank.

Exactly. He had a good opening 10-15 mins, got by Whttaker twice (who started poorly) took a knock in a challenge from Bougherra and never got a touch after that. Hardly ripping any arseholes then....

By HT we were 3-0 up.

Don't think ger4life remembers that though.....

We should sign him, seems like a good prospect who could be sold on in a few years. Although, tbh I think he'll be playing down south next year, maybe at a WBA, Wolves, Norwich or a QPR.

Outstanding young talent, would be a terrific signing. Romanov would probably want Jelavic and £24million in return right enough.

i can assure you he was not raised a tim as his dad was wee henry templeton that played in the scottish lower leagues and he was raised a proddy until his mum and dad split up, was also brought up in shettleston

His father was. He isn't. It's a bit like the Billy McBungle scenario; father leaves marital home (for whatecer reason) wife - catholic - left to bring up child. Result- one tim supporting child.

IIRC I think it turned out that way as his parents split when David was young. Obviously, growing up, his friends must've been Shettleston Harriers....

On the money mate , auld mans a mad bluenose and when parents split he took up the Mothers sides alligence of being a rabid tarrier. Think he's from Parkhead also.

he said.......



He said: "It's weird when I look in the Hearts programme and see my name as David Cooper Templeton. My dad grew up a diehard Rangers fan and Davie was his hero.

"I don't know why he decided to name me after him because I have an older brother!

"Cooper was an unbelievable player and if I could become half as good as he was then it would be amazing.

"But I didn't really like it growing up. My dad left and I went to my mum's side of the family. They were all Celtic fans so I ended up following them. It was odd being a Celtic fan named after Davie Cooper.

"I got a bit of stick when I was younger but I don't really bother about the Old Firm now I'm at Hearts

Ryan RFC

I'm sure he'd sign for us without so much as a think about it. His dad will have already gave him the "I'd be so proud if you ran out on the park in the blue of Rangers" talk so much that he'd probably look forward to playing for us!

I'd snatch him from Hearts before you could say "sign him"!

The guy who wrote the article knew a guy who once saw davie at the pound shop. The guy took a picture of davie and he bought, three dvds, a sewing kit, 4 cans of vimto and a packet of after eights. He must be a celtic fan

From Ayrshire and that name. He had to be :)

Old Shettleston Road;)
Pretty sure he has moved recently though.
For the record he doesnt care about celtic now and would play for either one of us.
