Anyone see the BBC programme on the BBC last light about Derry City joining the league of Ireland good show but by god the fashion of the eighties were dire. Cork City good a few mentions and even Kent station was shown.
The trees story was funny serious travelling support for the cup semi final down in the lodge was at that game didn't go to the cup final when derry beat us ,must have been a gaa game on the same day
The show was purely dedicated to the early years in LoI. It didn't even step into the 90s.I was a regular at the Brandywell til a few years back. Not really my club so obviously didn't have the same grá as the locals. I'm friendly with a few ex-players so I'm not completely neutral.
People talk about a Dublin bias with officials and I have to say, I believe them. I had a season ticket one year and saw some absolute bowlers against them.
I haven't watched the show yet but did they mention dual contracts and liquidation?
A lot of good people in any around the various Derry City incarnations.
