If anyone is near their TV and has premier sports, check out this game from 1969 (Scottish Cup Final). Its like watching a different sport and is a real roughhouse affair.

Soccer has deffo gone soft.

One of the teachers at the school where I work is a long-time Celtic fan. He's really mixed-up at the moment. This morning he was beaming as he pointed out that Celtic were in the Champions League last 16 and Rangers were in the third division. His smile wavered a little as I pointed out that Celtic had lost their fiercest rivals, biggest games, largest crowds and only real competition. After a moment's thought, he concurred; then beamed again as he said that he'd just like to enjoy it for the time being. I can't say I blame him. :D

Where the hell was the commentator from? Was he a Yank? Weird voice. Glad I had rewind on the Sky+ Box. No blooming replays in them days. Was looking forward to seeing wee Jinky Johnston. Must have been injured. Thems was the days. Steady on! I'm coming over all misty-eyed. Fellout with soccer a good while ago and the cheating effers like that foreigner throwing himself to the ground for Arsenal v WBA won't entice me back any time soon.

Good call all round. Think the commentator may have been Irish...??? Very softly though. No cheats playing there though. :)

A bit of argy bargy etc and fists thrown but no dramatics. Rangers fans attempt pitch invasion when 4-0 down only to be sorted out ASAP by the cops/security.

Were they still using cotton jumpers for goalposts in 1969 or was polyester allowed?

Proper jumpers they were lad.

And the only advertising seemed to be a board for the Daily Express behind each goal area.

Aye, proper manly jumpers, made from horsehair, girders and hedgehogs.

They left out the horsehair for the shorts - too soft.
