Anybody seen the BT film "too good to go down". It follows the club from Sir Matt retirement to the Doc getting sacked. It really does look like history is repeating itself in respect of not giving Managers time to build and getting rid of certain players. Damn good watch 😆😆.

Was a great documentary Bfro. I’m one of the younger posters so I never lived through the pre Fergie era. My dad and grandad often tell me stories of these times having lived through it so it was nice to learn more in depth about the tenure under the Doc. Something that stood out to me was that even in division 2, our aim was to play quick attacking football to entertain the masses turning up to old Trafford each week. Having fast and exciting wingers with a centre forward that could bang in the goals. Hill and Coppell really seemed to get the fans off their seat.

Not seen the film yet, however having supported from 68 I lived every game of every season in that era. Some of those seasons hurt, people don’t realise how tough it was both football wise but standard of living and way of life. It was way tougher than life is now and I don’t know if the film shows it, but because there were fewer distractions, no social media, the fate of your team seemed to mean even more. The fall from the pinnacle was spectacular and how City/ Liverpool fans loved it. It is what made me so angry when we didn’t have a plan for SAF retirement. I remember Manchester was not the clean snazzy City it is now, the ground was gritty and grim but very much a fortress for the fans yet less so the team.

Just finished watching, scary similarities with today's team and situation, maybe the hierarchy at old Trafford should watch this😉.

Guys, it's football. Yes, it's a pain in the hoop, but there are much more things to be angry or depressed about. We're all adults, and hopefully we all now realise that it's really not that important in the big scheme of things.

Well said Noucamp,

At the end of the day, all it is is football, not important whatsoever, it's a game.

Redman you will love it . I started going in 74 so only really remember the Dochety years onwards . It was very interesting to here things about a certain Mr Clough that I didn't know . Really enjoyed it 😆😆.
