  • Our 75/76 team

    Did they have a plan B? And how did they react when they where a goal down?

    Plan B was to carry on playing magnificent football with all players interacting, rotating into all positions
    and go and score more goals, very effective..........Ahead of our time in England

      Reacted very well generally, we only lost 7 games and conceded 33 goals.

      I went to every home league game and about 7 or 8 away league games, only saw us lose once, away at Arsenal 2-0.
      I have supported Rangers for 50 seasons.

            Yes, but only preseason in Norway. 1987(?) with Mark Dennis in the team.

                Maybe one potential one but was irrelevant. Donít think we had any significant injury issues. Not sure how good our reserves would have been. Team seemed to pick itself every Week.

                  To be fair we beat Derby away 5-1 with Ron Abbott and Tony Tagg at Centre Back pairing as Mclintock and Webb were injured, so they did their job when called upon too. So much swagger to the way we played it was incredible and such a joy to watch. Really think I got lucky starting to watch the Rs in 1972.

                    This was my first season of going to Loftus Road aged 11 having supported the Rs since my parents moved us up from Norfolk when I was about seven. What a team that was. From memory we only played with about 13-14 players all season and I think you were only allowed one sub so plan Bs didn't really come into it back then. There were much smaller squads back then.

                      Incredible when you think about it Jack. One sub, players like "Chopper" Harris, "Bite yer legs" Hunter, Tommy Smith, all
                      would rather kick the player than the ball, yet players stayed on after crunching tackles.
                      Terrible pitches, the molly coddled little darlings can't even play in snow or rain these days.
                      Sure I remember Rangers playing two games in two days........

                        True, it was a much smaller squad game then. The team played a 4-3-3 and was largely unchanged, I think Mick Leach was a regular sub.

                        Parkes
                        Clement Webb McLintock Gillard
                        Hollins Masson Francis
                        Bowles Givens Thomas

                        No tinkering around needed.

                          Very true. I love watching Big Match Revisited on BT Sports just to watch proper contact football on those muddy and sometimes frozen pitches.

                              They were way ahead of their time. Way ahead. Not just from our point of view either. Everyone else loved us then.
