As Sunderland ‘Til I Die rolls out, it’s the latest TV series into the goings on or mechanics at a football club.
What makes this particular documentary so unique is that it is actually half chance. Sunderland have a notoriously loyal following, but even the documentary makers behind the project couldn’t have expected what would happen.
This is back-to-back relegations caught on tape. It’s critically acclaimed and available on Netflix.
It’s the latest in a line of numerous modern football and football club documentaries. Juventus had one. So did Boca Juniors, and eventually so did Pep Guardiola and Manchester City.
But why not have the same for Rangers? The modern story of the club is as triumphant as they come. Or at least it will be when we secure 55.
The Rangers story is unique in football
To have a level of insight and access to the club during that special season would be monumental. Who knows, it might even be this one.
Especially when you consider everything that’s went on before for the club. There have been so much bonkers happenings at the club over the last decade it’d be enthralling. It would be a pretty special TV Series.
Charting our journey from that famous hedge in Brechin to silverware again would be emotional. And I sincerely hope that it happens. With the likes of Rangers TV also playing a bigger role at the club, I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re planning for this already.
Let’s hope so, because it would be great to open up the club, and the loyalty of the fans, to the rest of the world.
And if we can lift 55 in the coming years, it’d be a pretty emotional watch too.
The Rangers story is as unique a story as they come in the world of football.
