  1. Protests?

    Yo! i stand by my comment in your little trail.
  2. My biggest disappointment was probably Jonas Thern, really frustrating time at the club. positive surprise - probably David Weir (going way back I remember thinking Kevin Drinkell was a good success)
  3. I was at that game and I agree, but go to 8:05 in this YouTube....
  4. Hope

    You shouldn’t believe the stories about the 60s, 70s and 80s. There were abject performances and results.
  5. Possession based football

    The main theme on here for years was demanding pretty football. Personally, I have always seen us as direct. Even including the Gascoignes and Laudrups, it was more about getting goals than possession.
  6. I put up the pre-Souness league table last night. We finished a season with 13 wins, 9 draws and 14 losses. We are currently 7-3-3. It was a lot worse, and that was many years since we had won the league too.
  7. When's the march to get rid of the board?

    I think in the vast majority of cases, it is that people could see through what Ashley was doing and didn’t want him at the club. And they would still feel the same - not because they wanted King, Murray, whoever.
  8. When's the march to get rid of the board?

    I prefer the current owners to the previous owners. I didn’t march in either case. i am fine with people marching in both cases. what are your answers to your questions? Out of interest.
  9. When's the march to get rid of the board?

    So, just to be clear. I didn’t march then, I am not marching now. I defended people’s right to march before if that was what they wanted to do, and do the same thing now. For that I am a hypocrite?
  10. When's the march to get rid of the board?

    good for you. If people feel strongly about something and want to march, they should go and march, wanting someone else to do it for them is apathetic. you being drunk and not liking me makes little difference to my life.
  11. When's the march to get rid of the board?

    You can’t take any action without needing to follow Craig Houston? Why can’t you go and march if you think it is required?
  12. When's the march to get rid of the board?

    Not sure who is stopping you lot. If you want to march go and bloody march.
  13. Pre-Souness days was this league table. does anyone think we will lose more games than we win this season? or does anyone think that this current situation is worse than failing to get out of the Championship a couple of years ago? Or the days before we were trying to get a licence to be allowed to play in the third division with the skills of Kevin Kyle, Sandaza and Stella to look forward to. Today was rubbish, and a fair few games have been, and will probably continue to be for a while, but a terrible result with a caretaker manager doesn’t compare to some of the shit we have had to put up with.
  14. Michel Preud'homme

    2 Belgian League titles nearly a decade apart isn’t like he is a worldy. I am curious as to what he could do with us, I am not convinced he is a million miles superior to McInnes, we shall see.
  15. Michel Preud'homme

    Interesting option, and good to see we still have ‘pull’ as a brand. Not sure if his agent is using us to get more money from Mechelen, and not sure if his record is actually good enough either, but would like to see his plans. Genuinely don’t think we will go for a manager who would be seen as a risk after the last two though.
  16. General Press Chat

    Funnily enough, he doesn’t mention that Neil McCann would be a perfectly reasonable choice (if he had more experience, the requisite record and competence and all that)
  17. Derek McInnes

    McInnes does seem the obvious choice, it is about time for him to step up and prove himself at a higher level. Short term he knows the league very well, would ensure we were far more solid and is more likely than anyone to hit the ground running.
  18. Frank De Boer

    Given de Boer’s short time in charge of his last two disasters i’m not really sure what he would bring other than being a big name.
  19. Protests?

    I would indeed agree with the last comment, although I think it is probably the same for all of us. I think most bears are in a place that the situation we are in is seen as down to SDM and the Whyte. And that we were then ripped off by Green who was a conman and Ashley who tried to wring every penny from us. generally, I also get the view that most Bears wish the current board could do more, but feel as though they are trying to go in the right direction and that we are so far behind our enemies because of the previous mentioned owners. I wish we had another £30m to spend on players, and if someone was offering that, it would be an option to look at, but I don’t see anyone offering it.
  20. Protests?

    I can’t believe any true Rangers fan could believe the stuff that you or others say and not want to do anything about it. That’s all.
  21. Protests?

    Not really, but i’m not on this thread whingeing about other people not protesting, other people not organising protesting and fans being apathetic. If you guys believe the current Board are as big a problem as you seem to, I cannot believe that none of you are protesting, trying to get into the club1872 board or well, doing anything other than moaning on a forum.
  22. Protests?

    Who’s stopping you?
  23. Protests?

    I know it has been a long time since i said anything in this area, but seriously, if people want to protest, go and bloody protest. Whingeing that other people aren’t doing it is just pathetic.
  24. The Case for keeping Pedro

    The idea of bringing in a manager who will either a) have to deal with a squad of Portuguese/Mexican players and either find a way of working them within his style or changing them all in January/next summer so that we can go through it all again year after year seems bonkers. I don’t have the answer, but changing the manager every year until someone clicks perfectly with a whole new squad doesn’t seem likely to work.
  25. Football is fucked

    The bubble will burst soon enough, who actually wants to sit and watch the same teams in the CL year after year?
