    Our crowds early 80's

    Iirc , the capacity for Ibrox was about 85,000 back in the early seventies . If memory serves me right we were second biggest in Britain , just behind Hampden and ahead of Wembley . Like you say it was only on big matches it came close to that . Think the semi v Bayern Munich in 72 was one .

    Semi final allocation

    Watch out mate , the email said they're not available for collection till Monday 22 October . Im in the same boat , I'm just about to send an email to see if I can collect them as I'm sure that's the option I picked .

    The "h*ns"

    They must be the most unoriginal fans you'll come across . Had many a fine night singing ' Go home ya h.. s ' to German teams on European nights back in the 80's .

    Yeah , back then , pre Souness , it was pay at the gate except for the c....c games . Even away from home was pay at the gate except for the sheep ( probably because it was all seated ) and tarriers iirc .
  5. I think you used to get them whomever you played back in the day , but I don't think you get actual caps anymore in recent years . Remember the days you used to see pictures of players with their actual cap , I've not seen it recently though . Stand to be corrected .

    Oh , I agree , it's hard to believe now the competition there was back then - Jim McLeans Dundee Utd and Sir Alex Ferguson's Aberdeen were just as dangerous as the tarriers , in Aberdeen's case , even more so . It makes it all the more significant , what we managed to achieve back then in winning the league , in such circumstances . I always felt though , once Souness became the gaffer and signed winners in Woods and Butcher we were ready for it . It took a while to get started , but once the results started , there was no stopping us .

    Despite our record at the midden, we actually gave them a good game most the time .

    Tbh , I think most of us knew great things were going to happen pre season when we bought Woods and Butcher . It took a few games to get into the rhythm but , as you say , after beating the tarriers I felt positive this would be our season . The belief Souness gave the players and making them believe they were winners was tantamount to our success . And hopefully , that's what SG will do again this season .

    That trip to Beershot was my first away trip with Rangers . We got beat in the first game and as we left they were loading hampers into the bus and we gave them a hand . Won the next night 4-1 iirc . I remember going back home full of the bevy trying to hold it in , got to London and everyone insisting we went round Buckinham Palace . If that wasn't bad enough, they insisted on doing it twice ! Managed to hold it in till we got home .

    Are we on the verge of finding our best 11?

    It's actually quite difficult to pick a best eleven such is the calibre of the squad . What a difference to six months ago .
