  1. This is a wonderful moment of clarity.
  2. Bakbear


    There was a guy tampering with his fucking car. You can be as mentally strong as you want but that’s going to mess with your head
  3. You are very welcome. I thought it was helpful in order for your “a reporter IS a journalist” to be clarified into “a reporter is a specific role in journalism” Kind of like the guy who cleans the toilet is a specific role in Facilities Management.

  5. I think people are also underestimating the hatred for Rangers. if Alfredo played for celtic he wouldn’t get any of the shit he is getting as a Rangers player. I firmly believe this. We seem to spend a lot of time pointing the finger of xenophobia but the truth is he is hated because he is good and he plays for us. Reporters, like referees, are shit. Just more shit when it comes to Rangers.
  6. Between work and other stuff I haven’t managed to watch a live game from us for a while. This is fucking poor
  7. I am no master tactician but I think the days of formations being fixed are gone aren’t they? Isn’t our current set up more like a very fluid 4-3-3? Like, so fluid to be hard to recognise as 4-3-3? I come from an era of a Rigid 4-4-2. It is my default to consider rigidity in formation but I think football coaches Today don’t really have that mindset. Our tactics seem to be to have our attacking fullbacks get beyond the wingers. The wingers to cut inside and acting like #10s. The midfield 3 dropping back in to fill the gaps Made by the fullbacks getting forward. Having Davis as a fulcrum between central defence and the fluidity in front of them. All so fluid it’s hard to describe in 80s and 90s formation terminology.
  8. I do. I care about 9 to be honest. History books don’t reflect our situation. They just say who were the winners. as for them knowing deep down..... they are ambulance chasing cheating fenian bastards. They would happily steal the fucking trophy and claim they won it. There is fuck all deep down in them other than hatred and bitterness. our manager is not our problem. Our problem remains mentality of our players. The manager is changing that but it takes time to turn perennial losers into winners. I thought we had turned the corner with the win in their dump but it appears there remain weaknesses and my concern is that that fragility seems to exist in our most creative players.
  9. Honest to fuck. Maybe it’s my age or something but I will never understand what is so hard for people to understand about this. Nearly every single poster has said “we weren’t good enough” but that does not detract from the refereeing performance. Yes. The refs in Scotland are utterly utterly shite. They are shite when we watch them and they are shite when we don’t. Every club knows they are shite and every club complains However, if a shite referee gives a shite decision against Rangers, a bunch of our fans start arguing amongst themselves and there is no consequences. If a shite referee gives a shite decision FOR Rangers then he is subjected to condemnation, personal attacks, investigations and the threat of having his windows panned in. Christ it doesn’t even need to be a shite decision. Even a good decision for us is absolutely torn apart. Look at the outrage after we beat them at the paedodome. Some of their fans had the audacity to suggest Clancey was biased towards us. We have actually been cited as a club for our “behaviour” because we had the temerity to beat them. I am a rational, mature adult living overseas and I look at the different treatment of Rangers versus the rest and can’t believe that as a support we actually continue to argue with ourselves about this.
  10. Frankly it’s way too hypothetical. we are still in 3 competitions. The league is looking tougher now but still a lot of football to be played. Scottish cup is definitely winnable and how anyone could watch that league cup final and not see we were the better side I’ll never know. I get it. We lost and winning is all that matters. But that defeat was hardest to take. we came back from Dubai without our captain and our talisman striker. We have failed to turn it back on and it may have cost us the league again but we are still way better off than last season and we are still improving. we need to get back to our December form. If we go through against Braga and pull together a few wins let’s see where we are in April.
  11. I support Rangers. I am agnostic to English teams unless there is a Rangers connection When Walter Smith went to Everton I wanted them to win. There are a few players that have been Everton and Rangers over the years. When there was no real ex Rangers connection in England, I usually wanted Alex Ferguson to do well. Tenuous perhaps but hey ho Since Gerrard joined, and I became more aware of what a top bloke he is, I have wanted Liverpool to do well. You can’t deny the romanticism of Liverpool. It’s a proper football club. Like us, they are united in tragedy. (Man U as well). If not for Gerrard I would have no interest in Liverpool. While he is our manager I will wish them well. If he returns the title to us (which I fully expect him to) then I will likely always wish him well. I expect he will also one day manage Liverpool and assuming nothing happens in the meantime to diminish his achievements as our manager then I will hope he has nothing but success.
  12. He left at 16. He is still only 18. With our current midfield and the pressure to win the title, I don’t believe he would be close to our first team. for me he is just a youth player that chose to move to an EPL club to further his career development. Good luck to him.
  13. made a Few changes. don’t think Kent Or Helander have gone up since we bought them dont rate Goldson Think Barisic Has come on in leaps and bounds this season. Tav is the captain and although I have questioned his mentality, his stats at this stage of his career would suggest a decent fee Aribo is quality, has become a full international since joining us and will get better
