This is my first time listening to this podcast. Hosted by Ciaran Deeley and Ross Bennett, two Sports Scientists at Rangers. Episode 5 is with Ramsey. It's very long but insightful. It doesn't just deal with Sports Science but for those of us who like coaching it touiches on lots of areas - technical, tactical, physical and psychological.
Took me a few listens to get through all of it, but I really enjoyed it. Ramsey comes across as likable, and funny in a gentle way.
I saw Clive retweet this. Worth skimming through just for the ending. No spoliers!
That was a bad night off the pitch. I've never seen so many home fans looking for trouble, they were checking every car as we were stuck in traffic, we got followed down every lane and road, there was grown men and young girls all chanting 'Gregor, Gregor' calling him a coward and all that. Heard later that there was violence at the first leg. We were happy to get out of there.
Shoot magazine used to have a postbag where kids would write in proposing new LOTG. Bless them, they'd propose stuff like three teams playing each other at the same time on a triangular pitch with three goals (mind you, imagine beating Chelsea and Luton on the same day!). I never knew who to feel sorrier for; the kids or the poor journo who'd have to read them and reply in a serious tone.
So anyway, when football comes back you can introduce one new rule. What is it?
Do we have a full list of all the players who played for England while at Rangers?
Edit - this is all I could find. Please add.
Evelyn Lintott Rodney Marsh Gerry Francis Dave Thomas Phil Parkes Stan Bowles Dave Clement Ian Gillard John Gregory Clive Allen Terry Fenwick Dave Seaman Paul Parker Dave Bardsley And Sinton Les Ferdinand
Phil Parkes (1978 - overage player?) Chris Woods Clive Allen Terry Fenwick Steve Wicks Peter Hucker Wayne Fereday David Kerslake Martin Allen Dean Coney Bradley Allen Andy Impey Trevor Sincair Kevin Gallen Danny Dichio Paul Murray Lee Camp Dexter Blackstock Nigel Quashie(?) Ebere Eze
Found myself down a wormhole and came across this strange one. The site below has Parkes playing an U-21 match in 1978. As he was born in 1950 this is either a mistake or U-21 teams were allowed one or two overage players like the Olympics.
I presume it's a mistake because he also quit England after review broke a promise to him, I thought?
