  1. Windass ? Waghorn ? Why Pedro, why. Only positive is we've managed to remain unbeaten in Europe this season......
  2. According to Wikipedia Limmasol have a French defender called Sebastian Faure who plays at number 2.
  3. I'm sure some daft bugger on here did a topic about that a few years ago..........
  4. The "Fitba specials" on the train in the seventies were only special cause the normal rolling stock was replaced by really old knackered carriages from the fifties that only got used for football carriages, as they always ended up a lot more damaged by the time they got back. We'd try and get on without buying a ticket, as that saved our money for more carry-outs and were usually successful. We'd take a big carry-out on the train. The trains were covered with dust and when you jumped on the seats it was like a sandstorm. Remember racing through stations on the way to the likes of Edinburgh or Dundee, and cans and bottles would get thrown out at randoms on the platforms in places like Croy and Falkirk. On quite a few occasions I saw an occasional nutter going round unscrewing the wee night light/reading light bulbs and lobbing them out at unsuspecting folk on platforms. The banter was great, the drinking was constant and we played cards on the way, I'd usually start off bad and be winning by end of the journey, but the winnings always went on an extra carry out when we got to the destination. The safety chain would get pulled 4 or 5 times on the way and coming back which would add an hour or so to the journeys, and especially at Waverley the polis would be lined up with rows of big ferocious barking alsatians to keep us on the straight and narrow up the steps and down to Princes street. On the way home the toilet's would be more bogging than the one in Trainspotting, and most just peed through the open door window, or in the guards van. For some reason the Rangers special trains would always come back in to Glasgow via Springburn, then down to the lower Queen Street level, where we'd change train. The cellic fans coming back on the electric train from Bridgeton would clash with us occasionally but mostly they went straight through Queen Street stopping further up at Charing Cross. On one of the few occasions we returned back on the high level at Queen Street after the tunnell doing about 20 miles per hour, one of my mates was peeing out an open door as we went round the curve and fell out on to the track, a 5 foot fall, and had to come running after, doing up his trousers as he jumped back on the train for the last 100 yards. At Queen Street the fans just piled through and there was no chance of anyone checking tickets. Ah the good old days.
  5. Apparently the only man made object on Earth visible from space is the "UEFA Europa League Qualifying Rules Manual"
  6. Those MB bars, a poor mans Fry's Cream. I never ever saw them in any kind of wrapper at any stage. Health and Safety hadn't been invented then.
  7. Think I'm missing a point here, 4 times in the league, once in the league cup and once in the cup. Perhaps they'll fall in to the Eufa leagues and we'll meet them there ?
  8. Common sense rule. If it's worked for 100 years don't fix it.
  9. All about the money probably, worldwide audience for advertisers. Sign of the times, these days we even get meaningless friendlies (England) broadcast on national TV at peak times.
  10. Agree it is a pointless tournament, no way will players be giving 100% with new domestic seasons coming up. The Portugal/Mexico game will be interesting though to get an idea of the formation and tactics our new players are probably used to., in fact looks like the one game on there with the most potential for attacking flair and defences that need to be savvy. Are the big names playing in this tournament. Could be another tournament too for England to embarrass themselves with lack of commitment and preparation in.............
  11. Maybe a different topic, but I've always had a lot of respect for football fans who support teams in the lower leagues, knowing it is unlikely they will be successful at higher levels and sometimes wonder if they're commitment is greater than our own. But the proof that our support was immense was the 50,000 attendances against teams in the lowest league and the way our fans stayed loyal and true through the worst of times. In fact our support through thick and thin has now been proven to be simply the best.
  12. I was reading your user name as "Pedro No 1" for a second there and about to diss you until I saw it as Pedro number one. Must admit his signings so far have been class, hopefully they'll gel together quick.
  13. Fuxache, hope we got the right one. Would it be possible for a manager to sign the wrong guy, especially a really famous manager once connected to Rangers ?
  14. Teams like Aberdeen stood back as cellic shafted the rest of the league, and stood back when they took players from the likes of Hibs and Dundee United only cause they could, yet now the dons are slagging us for allowing a player to move on to a team where he could actually win things. I would say they're second rate, but they couldn't even do that properly in our absence. Now third rate and on the slippery slopes, good riddance. Ryan Jack for me symbolises for me our real return to competing as Scotland's best.
  15. 2017-18: League 2018-19: League & Champions League Group Stage 2019-20: League & Champions League Winners 2020-21: World domination. 2027-28: League win 65, 10 in a row and 5th clean sweep of all trophies.
  16. If Pedro builds our field of dreams he will come.........
  17. Looks rubbish on a bigger screen phone too.
  18. I hope you are not suggesting that the BBC might be a decent channel.
  19. Did you get decent odds on that ? I'm amazed the bookies understood it.
  20. That O’Halloran chap sounds like a decent player.
  21. Great work @julescotia and one step ahead of the press.
  22. He's a fictional character who rivals Messi and Ronaldo's goal scoring achievements, has won 6 golden boots, and even has his own twitter. Cellics version of Mario Jardel, a fictional character who played for Rangers....
  23. We know who the enemies are now. The SFA, those who took a political interest, and a lot of the media. They wanted us destroyed and gloated in it. Only thing that has changed is that due to the loyalty of our amazing loyal fanbase we are slowly regaining our strength and they'll be getting worried again. Fuck them all.
  24. Good staunch Rangers players or potential signings should no longer associate themselves with the SFA team, do you see the lies of Alves and Pena in that line up ? Naw they know better. Nothing good to be seen at Scotland games these days.......
  25. Weiss is way way too over-rated on here, was he really that special first time round and has he gone on to a much higher consistent level ? Answers: Naw and naw.
