  1. Beggars Allocation Cut

    No. If I'm working I won't get the supporters bus
  2. Beggars Allocation Cut

    I do? I can't always just burst into song when I'm working at games. Wouldn't really go down well.
  3. Beggars Allocation Cut

    Some away games, yeah absolutely. The atmosphere at Ibrox can be terrible sometimes.
  4. Beggars Allocation Cut

    Lets hope the polis don't use twitter, plenty stupid enough to film and then post it
  5. Beggars Allocation Cut

    No, I've got it from sitting on supporters buses going to away games and getting pished on the way to it. I'm no saying that folk go to away games and do their best Danny Dyer impressions ffs. I'm saying folk will have a few more beers when they go to an away game than they would if we were playing the same team at Ibrox at 3pm on a Saturday . That's it. Folk will have a few more beers and there's a bit more atmosphere

    Eh? Green street?
  7. Beggars Allocation Cut

    It was a tongue-in-cheek comment that appears to have flown right over your head.
  8. Beggars Allocation Cut

    When I do I'm normally working. Great, I'm sure there are lots that go without having a drink, there are also plenty who see it as an opportunity to get blitzed and I don't doubt that folk having a few beers more than they would at Ibrox makes them a wee bit happier to indulge in a song. Do it myself when I do go to away games as a fan.
  9. Beggars Allocation Cut

    "the more loyal bear"? What a ridiculous notion.
  10. Retained List

    Aye, it's the same with Pena, he can't return (and play) unless our transfer window has opened for his registration to be transferred back so that sort of stuff is worked into deals. With guys like Cummings who they have an option on they'll either run the loan deal longer to give us time to make a decision and agree terms with the player without doing several transfers of registration or have an agreed deadline for a deal in place or at least have begun talks.
  11. Beggars Allocation Cut

    Then there's always the argument that away days are a bit different from going to Ibrox of a Saturday. Bit more boozing, everyone's a bit more compact, there's less families etc. I mean we could just pull Ibrox down and build a wee meccanno ground like Clyde or falkirk just for guys that go to away games. We'd have a cracking atmosphere then.
  12. Retained List

    Bit earlier now. Transfer window officially opens on June 6th iirc so stuff like Goss and Martin's loan will officially end on or around that date. Players deal often come to an end either at midnight of te day of the final game or May 31st (clubs don't want to be paying players wages for time they don't have to) and the lower down the money table you go the further from the traditional 1st July deal expiry. Think even Davie Moyes' deal at West Ham was until midnight on the day of the final game so they're not paying him to sit about until July getting paid on a deal they all know isn't getting renewed.
  13. Beggars Allocation Cut

    It's never been great on a week-to-week basis. Even during 9iar Ibrox wasn't exactly rocking every single week.
  14. Retained List

    Tbf, I have noticed a few Scottish clubs publish their own lists but I think that's simply been a case of them updating fans. At a guess, we might do it if there was a rake of players heading out with their contracts being up but think it's only Miller and Hardie this summer. We might release a list of names of Academy players that are released
  15. Beggars Allocation Cut

    google says 900 (as many as well get at celtic Park) so half the attendance. Still leaves thousands of folk missing out, as was the original point. Just need to suck it up.
  16. Retained List

    Is there such a requirement in Scotland? There isn't a requirement to register a fixed squad as there is in the EFL and PL.
  17. Beggars Allocation Cut

    No, as far as I know our allocation was around 300-500. Knowing Methil, there will certainly have been a few locals who will be have a soft spot for both East Fife and us (I'm sure @gogzy will know a few) and might even have sold their tickets on but out allocations at Bayview were tiny - because the stadium is tiny.
  18. Beggars Allocation Cut

    Crazy to think that something "controversial" that is splitting opinion among fans might cause some fans to comment.
  19. Beggars Allocation Cut

    Aye mate, everybody else is in total fucking agreement about this
  20. Beggars Allocation Cut

    And in all that time there's been plenty pumpings dished out - on both sides - and putting the others in their place only lasts until the next game. Whether there's 8000 or 800 of them there or 8000 or 800 at their dump. I've seen us pumped by them home and away but there's nothing more enjoyable than us smashing them at Ibrox and 40,000 bears giving it big licks. With as many as 48000 thousand bears at Old Firms at home now when we do finally get back to beating them it is going to be even more enjoyable. Plus there's getting a few extra thousand ST's sold every year. That's another couple of million quid at the start of the season that, presumably, is going to be used to fund new signings etc. There's more benefit to us across the board than a few thousand fans getting a better chance of a ticket to go to CP twice a season. I'm far more interested in doing what benefits the club than keeps some fans happy or makes a better 'visual spectacle'. Little will change at an Old Firm because there's less fans. Do you think our lot will want to be heard any less despite being much fewer? Think they'll celebrate any less when we score? Will they fuck.
  21. Beggars Allocation Cut

    So why the fuck do we need 6500 of them there?
  22. Beggars Allocation Cut

    Wee bit more now but still tiny figures relatively.
  23. Beggars Allocation Cut

    So you think our away support has been 'put in their place'?
  24. Beggars Allocation Cut

    Who gives a fuck about putting them in their place? I'm more concered with doing right by our own who want to attend Ibrox every other week than what fucking celtic fans think. Fuck them. Are our away support "put in their place" at their shitehole since we're pish on the pitch just now?
  25. Beggars Allocation Cut

    It would make sense but then Real Madrid regularly only take a few hundred fans when they face Atleti. A journey of single-figure miles. Spanish fans just don't really do away games. They buy their ST/membership and go to home games but rarely do away games.
