    good idea in theory but would 45,000 actaully buy a piece of threadbare turf?

    Was trawling through our league history on statto, and noticed amonst our 9iar and a large bunch of league wins and 2nd places from mid 60s to late 80s, we finished 5th in season 77-78.

    Can anyone who remember that elaborate on * happened?

    Blackburn away in UEFA Cup. I can't help but notice how much we chanted "mon the hoops". Don't hear that much these days (not as much anyway)

    I heard so many fakes were sold for that match and genuine ticket holders got locked outside when police realised the overcrowding.

    Jock Stein was in a car crash and Sean Fallon took over for a season. I think that had a lot to do with as well as Dalglish leaving in the Summer.

    That's true. I eventually got in but like many others didn't even bother trying to find a seat, just stood in the aisles.

    Probably a question here for the older boys.

    What is with our woeful record in the League Cup when compared to the huns?

    Post-war when the league cup began we have won 1 less league than the huns, which should be rectified next season, 2 less SCs, which should be halved in a few weeks and rectified next season, but in terms of the league cup, we have 16 compared to 27 for the huns. Is there any reason for this huge difference? Did we used to a play a B team in it while they played full strength?

    Frustration is something we're all used to during transfer windows. This one just feels extra * because the huns are loving life at the moment. We all know it's going to end in tears for them... Just want to wipe the smug look off their stupid faces sooner rather than later.

    Does anyone know how many trophies rangers have won, compared to us?

    Will it be long before we take over their "world's most famous club" *?

    That will be the last straw for some of the bigots and I can't * wait :party048:

    6 league titles and 13 in total. Couple more trebles and we will be there in no time. Scottish football authorities and refs have favoured them almost from day 1 though. Now we are in the internet age they cant get away with it any longer. We will never be the worlds most successful club but we will overtake them no problem!!
