  1. Past hour
  2. Aye every club is fucked the more this goes on.
  3. If he has them, he’s had them for ages, and done nothing with them, so why will he do something now?
  4. Stephen Hendry. Think he was down 8-1 to Mike Hallet in the Masters final. Won the last 2 sessions 4-0. Liverpool and Man U’s champions league final victories in 2005 and 1999 respectively.
  5. Imagine doing what he said he was going to do! 🙈
  6. Earlier this week Robert auctioned a signed Rangers jersey from this season in aid of The Restoration of Rangers Graves Project which raised the wonderful amount of £250. We’d like to thank Robert for this extremely kind gesture which will help ensure that the restoration project will continue with pace once we’re back at work.
  7. Spot on. Like Scotland and the poll tax. ”Let’s test this on some unholy, unimportant shitehole at the arse end of nowhere and see how it goes before launching it on anywhere that matters”
  8. Great to see a midfielder making a run to the front post at a set piece. Not nearly enough of that. Guys like Durrant and Russell had that natural vision but it’s very rare today.
  9. He's a professional footballer who has given more than most with us, and his record speaks for itself. And I suspect he won't disrespect us in the future either, seems a loyal guy. Would rather he stayed but like Lee Wallace, will have my respect if or when he does leave.
  10. I wouldn't begrudge him a move at all. Gets out of this backwater and doesn't have to put up with the nonsensical shite from a section of our "fans" (normally keyboard warriors/cowards) Good luck to him if he gets a move.
  11. You not got anything to say about the highland league in Scotland, you know, the country we actually play our football in or does that not suit your twisted wee argument?
  12. Wentworth world matchplay, Sandy Lyle beats Nick Faldo from 6 down after 18 holes. Scotland down by 31 - 0 to England at half time, only end u drawing as they lost a try in the last few minutes to tie 38-38
  13. Any organisation with any hint of morality about would be Null & Void the league.
  14. Today
  15. Lasse Viren Fell in the Olympic 10,000m final only to get up and win gold in a world record time. Munich, 31 August 1972 At the start of the Munich Games, Lasse Viren, a 23-year-old Finnish policeman from the small village of Myrskyla, was not widely known. Indeed, the heats of the 10,000 metres were his Olympic debut. But when he stumbled and fell just before the halfway mark in the final his chance of victory seemed to have gone. The Tunisian Mohamed Gammoudi (who had won the 5,000 metres at the 1968 Olympics) tripped over Viren and gave up two laps later. But the Finnish runner calmly got to his feet and chased his way back into contention, overtaking Britain's David Bedford, the long-time leader, to not only win the gold medal, but set a world record of 27min 38.4sec. Ten days later, he also won the 5,000m (in an Olympic record time) - a double that he repeated in Montreal in 1976. Hampshire Bowled out for 15 and made to follow on, they went on to beat Yorkshire by 155 runs. County championship Edgbaston, 14-17 June 1922 Headingley '81 is the best known comeback in cricket history, but an even better one took place 59 years earlier. After Hampshire's collapse (they lasted 53 balls), they still trailed by 208 runs on the first innings. So confident was Warwickshire's captain, F.S.G. Calthorpe, that he suggested his team's amateurs play a golf match in the time left over once they had won the cricket. Lord Tennyson, the Hampshire captain, bridled at this and bet Calthorpe £10 his team would win - and won his money. In their second innings, Hampshire made 521 and then bowled Warwickshire out for 158. Charlton 5-1 down with half an hour to go, having played most of the match with 10 men, they won 7-6. Second Division, The Valley, 21 December 1957 Huddersfield manager Bill Shankly watched in horror as Charlton's hero of the hour - dashing left-winger Johnny Summers (pictured) - engineered the most remarkable comeback in football history, scoring five and just for good measure setting-up the other two. From being four down, Summers's goals - including a six-minute hat-trick - gave Charlton a 6-5 lead with two minutes left. Huddersfield promptly equalised, only for Summers to lay on the winner for John Ryan, who scored with the final kick of the game. 'Amazing, incredible, fantastic...' as one reporter put it at the time. Summers later revealed that he changed his boots at half-time after his old pair had started falling apart. Henri Cochet Almost overwhelmed by Bill Tilden in three sets - then beats him in five. Wimbledon semi-final 30 June 1927 FR Burrow, a famous Wimbledon referee, described this game as the most astounding event in his time at the championships. Cochet, a dapper little Frenchman, was being overpowered by the great American 'Big Bill' Tilden, who won the first two sets and led 5-1 in the third. Extraordinarily, though, Cochet, daring to take the ball earlier and earlier, won the match, 2-6 4-6 7-5 6-4 6-3. The spectators, said Burrow, were 'almost too spellbound to applaud'. Cochet, who had also come from two sets down to win his quarter- final, did so again in the final, saving six match points before claiming victory over compatriot Jean Borotra. Hermit A 1,000-15 shot, nursing a serious injury, he races from the back to the front to win the Derby. Epsom, 22 May 1867 Barely a week before the big race, Hermit pulled up with a broken blood vessel running in a trial at Newmarket. However, the rivalry between his owner, Henry Chaplin, and the Marquis of Hastings (who stood to lose £120,000 if Hermit won) ensured the colt's appearance in the classic. But with unseasonal snow flurries blowing across the Downs, Hermit's starting odds of 1,000-15 appeared a little miserly as he remained at the back of the field approaching Tattenham Corner. Suddenly he took off under the driving of jockey John Daley and at the winning post stretched out to beat the 10-1 chance Marksman by a neck. The Marquis of Hastings, it is said, went deathly pale. Dennis Taylor After losing the first seven frames of the world snooker final he goes on to beat Steve Davis. The Crucible, Sheffield, 29 April 1985 When Steve Davis made his first significant mistake in the eighth frame, it seemed irrelevant. The world champion had won the opening seven frames, and Dennis Taylor was in danger of losing ignominiously. But Taylor won that eighth frame and so began snooker's greatest revival. He levelled the match at 17-all, and then won the deciding frame on a respotted black. France Overcame a 14-point deficit in a World Cup semi-final to beat the mighty All Blacks. Twickenham, 30 October 1999 New Zealand led 24-10 after 44 minutes, so in statistical terms not rugby union's greatest comeback, but what elevated this remarkable victory was the awesome reputation of the vanquished. A 14-point lead seemed more than enough for the All Blacks, but in a burst of exhilarating adventure and cool kicking by fly-half Christophe Lamaison, France retaliated with 26 points in 13 minutes to win 43-31. 'This,' said Bill McLaren, 'was the greatest game of rugby I have been privileged to see.' Gary Player Down by seven holes in the world matchplay, he still wins. Wentworth, 15 Oct 1965 After 19 holes of his semi-final against America's Tony Lema, Player trailed by seven. From then on he was brilliant, but still two down with three to play. He retrieved one of these and then at the last hole hit a fantastic second, a wood that finished 15ft from the flag. He won a memorable match at the 37th. Buffalo Bills Losing by 32 points, they still find a way to win. NFL wild card game, Rich Stadium, 3 Jan 1999 The greatest comeback in NFL history was all the more remarkable because it was masterminded by Buffalo's back-up quarterback Frank Reich, not Jim Kelly, their regular play-caller and a notable escape artist. Trailing 35-3, Reich threw four touchdown passes, the last three to Andre Reed, to propel Buffalo into a 35-35 tie. The game went into overtime, when Steve Christie's 32-yard field goal sealed a stupendous victory for the Bills.
  16. Someone mentioned Robert Prytz. I thought he was completely underrated at Rangers. A fantastic first touch and his control and passing was sublime. But he played in a mediocre Rangers team. looking at his career and the teams he played with he looks never settled and could be classed a “journeyman “. he was part of the Rangers community football thing with the kids and my boy came back one day raving about this fat bloke with mad hair that could do a thousand keepy ups. 😂
