- Asked by a poster whether his memory was correct and that back in 1973, he'd seen Mike Ferguson delivering coal, Mike Ferguson replies:
"It is quite true,wages were not good and in the summer I used to help a real die hard Rangers supporter Dennis Sergeant,him and is Brother Barry never missed a game home and away ,they were great friends to me and my family,and it was a way of making extra money,another funny,we were delivering to a house in Harrow,I was black as the ace of spades,this man said to me 'your Ferguson arent you'I answered yes,he said no your not,brilliant...Imagine that story coming out after 40yrs,nobody at the Rangers ever new,even in them days I started with Dennis at 5-30am"

- Part III Of BBC's "Your Place or Mine" - " Your Place Or Mine? is a three-week mini-series on BBC London & South East Late Kick Off. Three fans compete against each other to prove that their club's match-day experience is the best around. One fan from each division (Paul [Finney] from QPR, Kate from Millwall and John from Barnet) play host to the other two fans at a home game. The 'Fan Experience' will be judged by the supporters themselves and at the end of three weeks, a winner will be declared. The criteria will include a pre-match pub, food at the ground, match-day atmosphere and the quality of the football."
