Watched it again recently - a good documentary - but quite scathing about Rangers. Quelle surprise.

Interesting that they were talking about the same issues then that we are now - TV, money etc

Remember Jimmy Sandison and Richard Park from the phone ins back in the day."were you at the game" being a favourite catchphrase.

Our then club Chairman John Paton didnt exactly cover himself in glory !

Was certainly good though at the time, lots of footage which was previously rarely seen.

This was an excellent documentary series.Does anyone remember a one off documentary into the fire,aired around 1986.Think it was about Mr.Souness taking the manager's job.

Jimmy S had a collection of catchphrases apart from the famous "were you at the match".
He also used to say, "I don't deal in rumours" and was scathing about the Scotland front line describing it as a "powder puff attack".
He died half way through the first GS season - I seem to remember him constantly saying that "tme needed to be the ally and not the enemy" for us that season.
He did get on your nerves however I got the impression he had no particular axe to grind. Apparently he was more of a boxing man.

Jimmy Sanderson: "It's my job to get bums on seats" in his nasal whine. Very scathing about the monster that was TV coverage and wanted punters to actually attend the games.

He often waxed lyrical of the Rangers sides of the 40s and 50s and was most certainly I believe a Rangers man ;)

"Bunkum and balderdash caller, bunkum and balderdash."

Me too, then went back to pass on what was said. A good deal more accurate than the guff that channel churns out now.

anyone got a link, I've been trying to find it for ages.

Some helpful person at the BBC decided to re-run this at half 3 each weekday later in the 80s as well, just in time for my return from School :D

Sanderson after a match against Aberdeen at Ibrox when it was Sounness and Fergie in charge .."I've seen Rocky Marciano fight at Madison Square Gardens but in all my time I've never seen a scrap like this afternoon at Ibrox" or something along those lines.Magic.

Archer was a malicious celtic-minded alkie, he was the inventor of "Rangers were formed to sell shirts" and other loony myths. FF once had a lovely pic of him exiting a hotel toilet complete with pish-stained breeks.:D

Well before I arrived in Scotland but this is magic. Memories of the "Doll's House" at Broomfield though! :eek:

And BTW the Rangers won 24 to iraftibaclubs 17 League Championships from 1891 to the outbreak of WWII.
(irafitbaclub won 18 Scottish Cups to the Rangers 14)

Mr Struth was undoubtedly more successful than the rancid Maley!

We Welcome The Chase.
