Just a wee bit of fun. We're all pals here.I hate the question was Davie Cooper better Than whoever. Davie Cooper was a beautiful footballer and he shone like a light in many great rangers teams. A great man , great ranger , genius footballer. and played for the team he loved. I am blessed to have watched Davie Cooper play Football.
I’d have said all of that then added, “but Laudrup was better.”Cooper will always be my favourite player, carried a bang average Rangers side for years until Souness arrived, before that he was a diamond in a hill of coal , he was a joy to watch and a true Ranger in every sense.
I saw more of Cooper and due to not being able to make it to games during the Laudrup years, I have to say DavidA distraction from the boredom of International week and Takeover Panel nonsense.
Wee bit of fun for older bears who had the pleasure of seeing both...
Who was better and why?
Cracking post mateI saw more of Cooper and due to not being able to make it to games during the Laudrup years, I have to say David
Just will never forget the cup final replay on a Wednesday night against Dundee United, must have been 1980 or 81, what I do know is that we won 4-1 and I have never seen a one man demolition of a team like Davie did that night, he was just imperious, totally sublime and will never forget walking home after the game and the whole sky lighting up with electric blue lightning, god was celebrating I am certain.
Probably Laudrup was better but to have witnessed Cooper in the flesh I can't not vote for him.
The man was a football god.
And he ran away from reporters, and that was before they were all typwriting Tim's.
David Cooper, thank you and rest in peace
Voted Laudrup but appreciate your sentiments. I watched numerous poor teams carried by Cooper. But jeez he could be frustrating too.Cooper will always be my favourite player, carried a bang average Rangers side for years until Souness arrived, before that he was a diamond in a hill of coal , he was a joy to watch and a true Ranger in every sense.
Don’t talk pishStop the nonsense. Laudrup was vastly superior. Now close the thread.
it is up for debate that’s why we’re having one. And I am being perfectly honest when I say that Davie Cooper was better.I’d have said all of that then added, “but Laudrup was better.”
Because he was. It’s not really up for debate if we’re being perfectly honest.
3 league titles , 4 Scottish cups , 7 league cups and awarded in the Scottish hall of fame. Not bad for an old fashioned player who would be good in the 50s? Whit?I chose Brian Laudrup because he was quite simply outstanding.
Davie Cooper had the misfortune of playing in a relatively weak Rangers team when the game up here was beginning to be ruined by the physical side. He was an old-fashioned sort of player and would undoubtedly have achieved much more back in the 50s or 60s.
