  1. I can't fathom out Pedro at all. He spent a fair bit to get Pena and Herrera in and we hardly see either of them. His substitutions are a mystery. I would like to see him get shot of Windass, Hodson and Miller.
  2. I can appreciate that but the gaps have looked awful since day one imo.
  3. I don't mind the smaller ones which fill the gaps at the top of the Copland and Broomloan stands. They aren't ideal but I've never been very happy with the open areas there.
  4. I've just emailed the SLO asking for clarity on this for the supporters. The banners detract from the look of the main stand which has listed building status.
  5. Just noticed the bit underneath that guys post "Gregco 5088" What Bear would call himself that? If I'd noticed that earlier I wouldn't have bothered posting.
  6. What is he eating and drinking at Pizza Hut? Is the guy not allowed to eat? If he was out all night on the town doing the wine women and song thing the night before a match then I would be worried. Here we have : ""Footballer in eating a meal the night before a game shocker. ""
  7. Got to make this public. I'm going to Glasgow Airport tonight to pick up someone and they will be appearing at Ibrox tomorrow afternoon.
  8. Where are you reading loan deal? Nothing on RFC web site at all.
  9. You just raised that subject again.
  10. So he did, I thought it was nearer the end of season. He left end of January. The last few months of last season had me in a numbed stupor !!
  11. Alves, Jack, Dorrans, Cardoso, Candeias, Morelos, Pena, Herrera and Dalcio have come in. 9 new players is a lot to expect to start off as a well-oiled unit. Having said that, they are professional footballers and it really shouldn't take too long to get to know each other's styles especially with full-time training.
  12. You said the post meant nothing to anyone else when there are plenty other people who agreed with her opinion as can be seen on the whole forum.
  13. And add in Matt Crooks. and Matt Gilks, Hyndman and Toral and we have 13 players gone from the end of last season. (I know that 2 are only away on loan but I expect them to be gone permanently and not play for RFC again.)
  14. You could say that about any post, including yours above.
  15. Saturday's shocking refereeing performance undoubtedly cost us the game. This should not just be about the one incident. Stokes should have been red -carded twice, McGeouch sent off and quite possibly Darren McGregor as he brought down Morelos when he would otherwise have been through on goal. Also Lennon's antics were a disgrace. The SFA has a compliance officer who could and should have acted on Lennon, Stokes and McGeouch subsequent to the match. This constant dignified silence simply does not work. There is no dignity left in Scottish football and in fact very little left in society in general. Dignified silence is taken as weakness by those who hate us and they exploit that to the maximum.
  16. From my post on page 8 (post 11 down) : I'm not opposed to a standing area but if people have an idea then they need to give it some more serious thought.
  17. Although 5000 or whatever have signed a petition, some questions need to be addressed: How many of those who signed are attendees at every home game? How many are season ticket holders? How many of them would actually wish to stand at a game? Will they pay the same price for a season ticket as those they will replace? How many people will stand in the proposed section? Where will it be located? I have one more question: When did the stadium previously have such a great atmosphere at every home game, the one which people wish to bring back? I ask this because as someone who has been going every season for decades I certainly don't remember any such period.
  18. I understood it to be 700
  19. Are you suggesting we can only get atmosphere by singing particular songs?
  20. People go on about the atmosphere as it once was. When was that? I've been going to Ibrox for decades and the atmosphere has never always been great. It is an urban myth that the atmosphere used to be great. Certainly it has been unbelievable at some games but at others it has been almost non-existent. I think the UB are Ok sometimes and complete idiots at other times. I will repeat part of my previous posts: Will the UB proposal have sufficient numbers of fans willing to pay for season tickets to the value of those being displaced? Exactly how many are the UB talking about? Where do those displaced fans get relocated? If the club has cut off communication then the UB should use the SLO and Club 1872 to open some form of dialogue.
  21. Where do the hundreds of displaced ST holders go?
  22. Nothing snidey about it, you think you have some new idea that nobody has thought of before. You are the one that suggested people had to move with the times. You and others think that a standing area is the be all and end all without giving it much thought which you appear to agree with yourself. I'm not opposed to a standing area but if people have an idea then they need to give it some more serious thought. For example someone suggested the East Corner but I believe some of that is used by hospitality so what does the club do about that? It is all very well suggesting something but the logistics need to be considered. If the UB want consideration for their ideas then they should give it more thought and come up with a serious proposal. Will the UB come up with the numbers of fans who will pay the same money for season tickets of those they will be replacing?
  23. They may well be but that is not his remit though.
  24. Even with the Union Bears the atmosphere doesn't always get any better. The football on the park usually generates the atmosphere. Some of the songs the UB start are not exactly guaranteed to get everyone going either. I have moved with the times when it comes to what we can sing but many haven't. I have also moved with the times when we went from standing to being seated. Don't think you are reinventing the wheel. It is one thing suggesting a safe standing area but you need to say where. If it is the Copland Front then logically it would have to be in the section CF5 near the enclosure. Will everyone going into that section buy a season ticket at £435. Where will the club move the 750 existing season ticket holders?
