Tre tulipani – part 2
Play • 41 min

Gullit, Rijkaard and Van Basten were a central part of one of the greatest club sides ever, when Serie A was arguably at its peak.


This episode looks at the success enjoyed at a time when European Cup finals were the norm for Milan, and the denouement for the Dutchmen as Gullit clashed with Capello, while Van Basten’s career was cut tragically short by injury.

Greatest Games: West Ham United 1 Dinamo Tbilisi 4, 1981
This week on Greatest Games, Brian Homewood joins Jonathan Wilson and Marcus Speller to discuss the 1981 Uefa Cup Winners’ Cup quarter-final first-leg between West Ham United and Dinamo Tbilisi. So to the Boleyn Ground for this one, where the ardent West Ham crowd – then used to cruising second division and on the verge of promotion – warmly welcomed the Soviet Cup winners from Georgia. The reception was shortly followed by disbelief as the Georgians picked apart the FA Cup holders on a blustery March night in East London.
