I've read about Alan Morton, and often thought that Laudrup must have produced the closest feeling for our supporters since the wee society man graced Ibrox.
Hammer throwers is a term I dislike and discredits Scottish Players. Players in Scotland have always been physical with their opponent, it made us the footballing nation we are. You have to have enough about you to be able to reach the top League in Scotland, the problem when you get there is that Rangers have players like Laudrup. You are a good player and can't get near your opponent and you want to help your team win. Is Chiellini a hammer thrower now after his tactics in the recent final or did he do what he could to help his team win?Most of the ex players there have noted his height and physique. Smaller players with dribbling skills, you might be able to get the better of them on your day. Laudrup had both, a 6ft 1 winger with pace and skill. Must have been a nightmare for the hammer throwers.
Please tell me you have a link for that please !!Had a laugh the other day when my mate sent me a clip from the ASCOM podcast and they were talking about Enrico Annoni saying that he used to keep Laudrup in his back pocket hahaha.
I know someone who played against him and said that he used to glide above the ground and was basically impossible to stop if on his game.
Sorry Craig, stopped reading at “the immortal Jim White”
Hope the rest of it was good.
He did. Scored two, made 3.To be fair, he was just world class that day. From memory, he might have even made Durie’s goals as well as getting his own two ?
Your correct,was it Gazza who scored against the sheep at the broomie from at tight angle??
Brian was class,but Michael was just another level,just grateful we were to have Brian don our colours and when you think what Walter got him for round about 2.5 mill, incredible to have him ,Gazza and Albertz in the same team at one stage,wow. Just a joy to watch.In every Godrup thread I always say that when I heard the name Laudrup I thought Michael and was disappointed it was Brian. Then the first game against Motherwell he picked the ball up just inside our half and put the after burners on and I just thought bloody hell this is going to be fun.
no bother mate, it was quite funny, I burst out laughing when Ally said Laudrup was steaming before the prawn crackers and ribs had even arrived, so basically before they had even started eatingThanks for posting this, really enjoyed it, great to see two legends catching up.
