Quite topical atm and its good to look back on games like that, I have no probs with that, Ronaldinho had Goucho on his shirt that night I am assuming that's his surname, its a fans forum ffs.

I remember it being Reyna's last game for us, before he left for Sunderland. IIRC Flo missed a couple of stick-on headers, and de Boer ballooned a penalty off the top of the Eiffel Tower.

Original Ronaldo when he played in the youth teams for Brazil was called Ronaldinho, so Ronaldinho was known as Ronaldinho Gaucho because he is from Rio Grande de Sul province in Brazil which is known as Gaucho.

I think the state championship is called Campeanato Gaucho. I'm full of useless information. Here all week.

Ronaldinho, my fave all time player, what a player he was, the only player I could say ever rivalled him for skill on the ball was the original Ronaldo when he was 17 and 18 years old before his injury. Saying that Cristiano Ronaldo is a close second. Seems to be something about those Ronaldo's, maybe we should sign one hahaha can't wait to see the European nights back at Ibrox, while away yet but I reckon we have a good side and this season will give us that time to to build a side that will have played together, I felt it was too early for us with a whole new side to be honest.

There have been many fantastic European nights at Ibrox we can be very proud of, even some results away. I can see good things coming this season domestically

I mind big Sahko played well for them that day. Mendes also sent Makelele for a hotdog.

Had a friend from Brazil who explained the names to me, the inho just means 'little' which is where the name Ronaldinho stems from, so yes his name is Ronaldo, just in English it's little Ronaldo.

I know a guy who used to live there and attend a few games and he said it was perhaps the one and only time that the Kop and the Virage teamed up.

The next season they put about 30 Galatasaray fans in hospital.

We did beat them on penalties but it was different times. They were nowhere near the team they were today. A decent team aye but not on the same level as they are today so you can't really compare.

In the past I've actually liked your posts.

But no longer, in the future.

Utterly bizarre and non sensical. I guess you have no problems with the taigs trying to take our trophies away because, after all, it's all in the past that you seem to care nothing about.

Do you mean we should take the 5 stars off our Jerseys?

Yup and the current Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino was in that PSG team as I recall.

He missed the penalty for us to win it

Absolutely.

I prefer it without them in all honesty.

Ronald De Boer missed in normal time.

With 9pm start & extra time & pen shoot out. It was a late finish.

My hotel had said we had to be in by midnight!!!!!.

So the night porter was not amused when we woke him up at 3.30a.m.

I think what he means (and I agree) is that if you just stand still, thinking about how good the past was then you'll never be able to focus on improving.

This is probably going to sound mental, but I genuinely struggle to watch old clips of games and goals against celtic, in Europe, title days etc because it means little now if we genuinely can't push on and create more good memories and achievements. It doesn't give me the same desgree of satisfaction somehow if we aren't successful at the moment.  

That's not to say we didn't enjoy the good times or want to hand over our titles. They're ours. They are banked and a proud part of our history but it's in the past we need to make new memories and create more title wins. 

Some people are engulfed with how good we used to be, if anything it frustrates me watching old clips of our title wins etc because it annoys me when I see us now.

I don't expect many to agree with me but it's just the way I am. I enjoyed the wins at the time but there comes a time when you need to resign it to the past and look at the future because IMO at Rangers we are only as good as our last game. That's the way it has to be if you want to be successful. 

That's honestly not to say I don't care about our titles, or the 5-stars on our strip or anything like that. It's just a personal viewpoint when it comes to the old days and the now.
