Just been reading the excellent posts below re our Great Club in years gone by, hearing on the radio this morning that Rangers are playing Rapid Vienna tonight brought back memories to me of us beating Rapid Vienna in the European Cup Winners Final in which we won 3-1 in 1985 Andy Gray, Tevor Steven and Kevin Sheedy scored our three goals what a night, c'mon Marco bring those nights back ahhhhhhhh memories.

Agree0 Disagree0

I should have added as well that was also when we won the League Cup in 1985,I still have the commemorative v neck.

Football was much better back then. Fair enough the quality may have not been as good and no mega stars but it was proper clubs, smaller squads, more characters and the domestic game was not a 2or3 horse race year in year out. It’s boring now. It shouldn’t be that you have to spend 400 million every year - it should love down to coaching and well ran clubs.

In baseball 10 years ago the fans in league got sick of the yankees winning every year so league introduced salary cap which meant better players were all not at one club. In the next 6 years - 6 different teams won the Word Series.
Not saying this is just for EFC but all clubs should have a chance. It’s boring, predictable and elitism at its worst.

The fans have the power - if fans outside the top 6 stopped buying sky and refused to go into stadium if have to pay more than £15 it would be sorted within 3-4 seasons.

My son is 5 - is it fair that his team EFC will never have a chance of winning the league and likely not able to play in champions league for next 20-30 years simply because of sheikhs, unbalanced financial fair play rules, Sky funding and protection of elite clubs in Europe.

Best era for football 50s to late 80s - I hope it come soon back - also Hope average players don’t get million pound contract so which are paid for by fans who are struggling to pay for a ticket.

Totally agree 100 percent with what your saying sobs. money has ruined football and something needs doing but won't hold my breath.

To be fair GB, they would be a bit old now. Might give Liverpool a game or Man Utd though.

Blame Jimmy Hill. Nice fella and I get he was trying to be fair but it opened up a whole pandora's box.

Loved watching football in the 80's, loved playing football in the 60's, jeez some right tackling as well in those days, none of this rolling around on the ground like you have been shot. If you stayed on the ground then it was because it was impossible to get up.

Murdoch is to blame. TV money set the Premier Leagues top 4 as we knew them. Then of course Russian and Arab money has come in since to make it a top 6 now.
