remember it well, Rangers beat Dunferlmine 6 or 7-1 on the final day and the piece of shit Chris Sutton, then playing with Celtic, went nuts complaining about Dunf rolling over (this was minutes after Cetltic won like 5-0 at Kilmarnock) lolz
remember also 'helicopter Sunday' 2005 when Celtic needed to beat Motherwell to win league and were 1-0 with a few minutes left when Well scored 2 goals (from Scott McDonald lol) to hand Gers another title
Rangers's goal difference was just 1 better than Celtic's that year right. You don't get much closer than that. It's scary to think that just one less goal for Rangers or 1 more goal to Celtic would have swung it, and that Mikel Arteta's injury time penalty was so crucial.
And in 2005 didn't Celtic beat Rangers at Ibrox to go 5 points clear with about 4 games remaining?. Pretty much everyone must have thought the title was over at that stage. I think that Celtic lost at home to Hibs before that collapse against Motherwell.
Not that I rate McCleish that highly (it ridiculous that he got the Villa job after getting a team relegated twice in 4 years), but it's interesting to think that in his h2h against the media darling O'Neill, he beat him to the title 2 times out of 3 (the title race was pretty much all over when he was appointed in 01/02).
In 1997/98, Bolton's first home game of the season (and in fact first at the Reebok) was against Everton. It ended 0-0, though Bolton scored a goal that was over the line and wasn't given. The team that stayed up as a result? Everton.
Funnily enough, the same happened against QPR this season, except this time the roles were reversed...
Even if we don't beat Stoke, I hope we actually have a go. Would be terrible to go down with a whimper.
Ah yes Gerry Taggart's disallowed goal that was clearly over the line. A ridiculous decision. Would be karma if this time Bolton survive with the help of that Clint Hill disallowed goal
Coyle will ensure that Bolton will have a go today. I really want you guys to stay up.
