    Is Barisic the new Papac

    On Saturday we also attacked more often down the right flank than the left, meaning Barisic was operating more defensively. Understandably, he hasn't developed the same understanding with Kent as Tav and Candeias have. Once we get a more settled team, we'll see the best from him.

    Pressure from taigs

    I've just checked and the BBC website does still say "Ex-celtic coach".

    Flats oot the front

    That's true mate. "I Fought The Law" was based on the lead singers experience trying to get pocket money from his Barrister father before being sent to boarding school.

    Have that shower of bastards been sacked yet

    Listening to Adrian Durham earlier; he said he watched the full game and his opinion was that the performance of the Rangers players verged on unprofessional. Can't really disagree with that.

    Was that not Gullane Sands mate?

    Patience needed

    That was the first time in years that we stood toe-to-toe with that mob, and but for two moments of piss-poor defending and some incredibly bad finishing, we would have beat them or at least got the draw. I can see what Murty is trying to achieve and while I'm as gutted as any other Bear at the result, this match showed us where we need to strengthen and the fact there was no strength in depth due to injuries. I mean, look at the bench Murty had available. Other than Cummings, who was at his disposal who could have changed the game? Rodgers had Armstrong, a Scotland International, and three class loan players in Musonda (Chelsea), Roberts (Man City) and of course Edouard (PSG ffs!) who came on and won it for them.

    Absolutely bottled it

    Apart from Cummings we had no-one on the bench who would have made a difference, especially in midfield. Both Windass after the goal and Goss went missing. Then we lose Bates and Cardoso costs us a terrible goal. I don't think we bottled it but it exposed exactly where we need to improve.

    Rangers Observer On Wilson

    Another thing that bothers me. Imagine you're an MLS fan in the US. You're researching a new player who has signed from us and you click on the Rangers Observer. Way to go to make us look like petty, snide, small-minded arseholes to one of the largest football markets on the planet. We should be publicly disowning that shite and stick to wishing DW all the best at his new club.

    One for the Stephen Hawkins Loyal ?

    Our media team

    It's the public face of the club and should be managed professionally. A typo is a mistake, getting the details of the game wrong is a fuck-up.

    Fraserburgh game in Barcelona

    They're still smarting at the fact their dream team drew 0-0 with us at Ibrox :) For what it's worth, I'd report what you saw to someone at the club because it's just another unjustified dig at us. Our problem - if you can call it that - is we're not desparate to be pals with everybody. Nor do would we delude ourselves that 6 and 7 nil batterings in Europe are ok, as long as Messi talks about the brilliant atmosphere in the ground. I can only speak for myself, but when I was there no-one cared what team I supported. Only one barman had anything to say, but that was due to the poor behaviour of the Rangers fans he claimed he had experienced. If I recall correctly, we took more away supporters to the Nou Camp that last match than any other European team, plus the thousands of Bears having fun in the city itself. A few Bears pee up an alley or sing loudly and it gets reported like it's the worst thing to happen since the civil war, yet the place is full of suspciously young prostitutes who have obviously been trafficked there yet the police drive past like these girls are invisible. Anyway, I took the time to explain to the boy (he was Turkish) the difference between Rangers and celtic, and I'm pleased to say he changed his tune.

    Fraserburgh game in Barcelona

    There's plenty of sports bars on / just off Las Ramblas once you get about half-way down. There weren't any pubs for Bears, but if they are showing Sky Sports I never had any problems getting any bar to show the Rangers games.

    Joey sent home

    I don't give a monkeys who said what to who. I also couldn't care less about who released what first and where. The bottom line is this squad better find some harmony and some form toot fucking sweet. Let's hope it's like the fight we all had with the guy who then became our best pal at school because you both showed you weren't to be messed with. Anything else and this season is a write-off.
  14. Hello nice to meet you it is my pleasure to communicate with you if you will have interest in me for relationship i will be glad try to write through email.

    Rangers hanging their fans out to dry (part 2)

    I've been following this and the other thread with interest. I don't know the OP and I wasn't at Hampden so I'm not in a position to make any comment about the rights/wrongs/motiviation for going on to the pitch that day. I was a bit surprised at the club moving straight to a banning order so I had a read through the season ticket T&C's and this stands out at right at the beginning. 1. Ticket (smartcard) holders and or purchasers of tickets will be responsible for compliance and observance with this Ticket Use Policy / terms and conditions and with any ground regulations governing persons entering, present at or leaving Ibrox Stadium (the "Stadium") as may be specified by Rangers (the "Club") from time to time. Misconduct of the ticket holder or nominee, failing to adhere to this Ticket Use Policy or acting in a manner which the Club considers is detrimental to its interests or is likely in the reasonable opinion of the Club to bring football or the Club into disrepute shall permit the Club to confiscate or forfeit (in each case without compensation) the ticket, to prevent access to the Stadium for the fixture in question and/or to ban the ticket holder from attending future matches or other events at the Stadium for such time as the Club deems appropriate. So while any Bear who went on the pitch at Hampden and was subsequently arrested for it can fight their case in court (if it gets that far) the club can use the mere fact of the arrest to issue the letter that we've seen. It does concern me that there is no chance to state your case, never mind a right of appeal. Having said that, while for the record, I can't give anyone advice, if it was me, I would write a letter to the club accepting that they must adhere to the highest of standards but requesting that they do not re-issue my season ticket until there is an outcome with the police. Other than that I would keep stum just now. In any walk of life, being arrested would be grounds for suspension pending the outcome of the case. If the police drop the case (or I was acquited in court), then there would be grounds for writing a letter to the club, respectfully asking that the banning order be lifted.
