  1. Just read the article on RM, and I'm totally disgusted, although not in the least surprised! I'm utterly sickened by these liars and their determination to deflect criticism from their inept and unprofessional policing of last week's Scottish Cup Final. I was a policeman for several years and have been involved in many volatile (and downright dangerous) situations including major civil unrest involving thousands of rioters. I have also policed many local football matches, including cup finals. I must say that I find the excuses offered by the so called police spokesman, to be pathetic and infantile, and I have no doubt they are a tissue of lies. There were no reports of unrest outside the stadium after the game, and it is highly suspicious that it is now Thursday and this sinister 'statement' is only emerging now from a police force that most accept acted incompetently and disgracefully on the day. I think the club must react to this disgraceful statement and, of course, to the fact that it was given coverage by a rag that totally fails to disguise it's hatred for Rangers Football Club
  2. Welcome to Rangers FC, Joey Barton!

    I stated that I was unhappy with the prospect of signing Joey Barton, but I have listened to (and read) all of his interviews and I am impressed with everything he has said. His pressers with the local rags were exceptional, and he really acquitted himself well. I believe he is, indeed, a changed man, although that will 'cut no ice' when the rags find sufficient dirt to sling at him. This is the honeymoon period, thereafter he can expect little but hostility from the media and the players and supporters of theclubs that hate everything Rangers. Welcome Joey. I wish you and your family a happy and productive time in Scotland, and at the mighty Rangers. Good luck and best wishes mate.
  3. Rangers FC statement

    An accurate, comprehensive and hard-hitting statement from the club. But make no mistake, this is just the beginning of the 'fight' yet to come. Neither the SFA, Hibs, or the plethora of Rangers hating bigots in the media, police and politics will roll over and acknowledge the sectarian hatred, animosity and vindictiveness that clearly motivated the disgraceful behaviour of the thousands of thugs, bedecked in green (and, in many instances, in green, white and gold), who invaded the pitch yesterday and assaulted our players and staff. It took the SFA/SPFL nine months to dimiss the Motherwell pitch invasion as a mere 'aberration' and conclude that punishment was unnecessary, and I have no doubt they will seek to delay and procrastinate as long as possible in this case to ensure that time will dim memories and blunt the outrage and anger that all decent people must feel at this time. The SFA 'waggons' will be corralled, and Reagan, Petrie et al will ready their political, police and media allies to 'spin' the falsehood of provocation and intimidation by the big, bad Rangers support. In fact everything clicked smoothly into gear even as the disgraceful scenes were being played out on the Hampden pitch. This is no longer just the 'thin end of the wedge', or just another attack to be endured by our club then quickly forgotten. This has got to be the final straw - this is where we must make our stand! Lose this one and we will be forever the 'whipping boy' of Scottish football. Our representations must be forceful and determined and embrace not just the SFA, but the european football authorities and, if necessary, the local and european courts. If we permit violence and intimidation to subdue and silence us, then we might as well close our doors forever. Yes, this statement is an excellent one - but our actions from this point onward, must speak louder than our words.
  4. That goal was inevitable. We were really poor throughout the game and Hibs were much more threatening than we were. Their players were, clearly, up for it whilst most of ours went missing. We had to many underperforming players - Holt and McKay spring to mind, as well as our totally inept defence. We are so vulnerable from corners and crosses that I'm surprised we have not been punished more severely over the course of the season. I'm not just disappointed that we lost the game, but bitterly disappointed at the manner at which we lost it. The only saving grace is that we will have an utterly different team next season. I just hope that the spotlight is firmly on building a TOTALLY new defence.

  6. I really do hate to criticise individuals, but Kiernan and Wilson are going to cost us dearly. If we win this final, it will be in spite of their inept performances.
  7. Very fortunate to be level at halftime - I'm a very relieved man! We have been piss poor in every area of the pitch. Much to casual and much to careless. Slow and ponderous at times. I can't believe the space and time we're giving Stokes and Cummings! Were it not for Kenny's bullet header we wouldd be really struggling. I expect MW to put a rocket up collective backsides!
  8. Unlucky Kenny! Super header yet again. Now let's step up the pace - we're much to casual.
  9. Super header Kenny! Now lets build on this please! But it seems we're still determined to give that cunt Stokes all the time and space he needs!!!
  10. Schoolboy defending, and no composure anywhere on the park. In truth I would be happy to get to halftime at 1 - 0 to regroup. We're awful.
  11. We have started really poorly - we're all over the place and being cut to peices when they break forward.
  12. When will we ever learn! Every time we play this lot we gift them one or two goals! The defending there was criminal.
  13. Joey, yes or no ?

    No, no and no again. This guy is trouble with a capital T. I'm surprised that MW is seriously considering this one (if, indeed he actually is), but if he is then what I think is utterly irrelevant.
  14. Yet another uninspiring, lacklustre and negligent performance. If these guys are playing for a cup final place, we won't be able to put a team out! We don't seem to be learning the lessons - same errors, same shambles at the back. I've said it countless times, and I make no apology for saying it again - we're playing average to poor sides and struggling badly.
  15. I fully appreciate that this is an end of season game with little interest, but we are poor and look totally disinterested. Livi could be two or three up rather than just one. Lets be honest here, Livi are rubbish, but at the moment we are much worse. We have created nothing and laboured throughout the first half. To say we are sloppy is an understatement. Unacceptable attitude and an unacceptable display.
