  1. Check out the C****c statement - can’t help but have a snide dig and a wee inference! (I put it in capital letters) Scotsman Newspaper: C***c and Rangers have hit out at Irvine Welsh over comments made by the Edinburgh author. The Trainspotting and Filth author accused the Glasgow sides of not being interested in eradicating sectarianism, saying that without it the clubs would be the size of Hibs and Partick Thistle. Welsh, speaking at a launch of his book Dead Man’s Trousers in America, noted that Kilmarnock boss Steve Clarke spoke out after being called a “fenian b*****d” by Rangers fans because he had been away from the Scottish game for so long. He said: “It has to do with the Old Firm and the power of those institutions not really being invested in change. “Why would they be? Rangers without sectarianism are Partick Thistle, basically. And C***c without sectarianism are Hibs. They’re invested in that, and it serves them as enterprises. “You have to be able to shut down grounds and stadiums where singing takes place. That’s principally the way to do it because clubs won’t change until there is a financial incentive to do so.” Both sides of the Old Firm have rejected such accusations. A club spokesperson for C***c said: “These are tired and absurd accusations which, IN RELATION TO C***C FOOTBALL CLUB, have no foundation whatsoever. “C***c as a club open to all since 1888, has always campaigned against prejudice and promoted tolerance and diversity. This will always be the case.” It follows a Rangers spokesperson saying that Welsh’s comments don’t help and that they failed to reflect “how seriously we regard this issue.”
  2. The usual media darlings would be tweeting that they have been invited to, or are off to a Presser at Ibrox today by now if something was in the offing. If the Club are just going to put out a statement instead, then it won’t be anything super-significant.
  3. How did he do in Turkey? Cough-cough!
  4. Biggest decision Murty got wrong was saying yes to the job!
  5. It is Murtys fault. He could have picked a better team and formation. He could have made changes earlier. McCrorie suddenly a centre mid in front of Barj. Hodson instead of John at left back? This isn’t FIFA 18, this is the Rangers!
  6. No to worry we have a week to improve before the game against the mob!
  7. Not to worry, the manager is a tactical genius!
  8. If Miller starts it confirms to me that current ability and form are not what finds favour, it’s yer pals and your ability to convince people that you are what’s best for Rangers when you are not. Good grief, he will be 38 years old in 8 weeks time. What other top Club ( we are a top club, right?) would have a striker playing at that age..
  9. I'd rather have a right back without Tav's attacking qualities than Tav without any defensive qualities. That was poor.
  10. Next time you google "rail seating" and "you know who FC" make sure you quote an up to date article. They do have rail seating, the article you quoted relates to when they were previously refused.
  11. They have railed seats don't they? It's a condition for UEFA games that the standing areas are returned to all seated, which is also an issue if there was an attempt to have more than one standing person per railed seat (who would get the Euro ticket?)
  12. Club would hardly be returning the fans loyality if it said, 20 years man and boy, thick n thin, Doesnae matter if you won't stand you can sit somewhere else whether you like it or not.
  13. Some might argue they already have a section?
  14. All this support from RSCs and polls are meaningless (no disrespect intended) without a poll of all the actual people that matter. The season ticket holders inside the stadium who may be affected. The Club, if exploring the issue need to ask them A) are you in favour B) would you be happy for your seating area to be converted c) if so do you want to retain your own seat/space d) if not where would you want to be relocated to e) if safe standing is created in another area of the stadium, would you be prepared to relocate to another area to accommodate another supporter who has been displaced Only with this information can the Club get an idea of the viability ( notwithstanding the cost or whether it is priority) of the idea in the first place. There may be no individual section with a majority of supporters supporting conversion of their seating or prepared to relocate There may be too many supporters wanting to relocate to a section that couldn't support them all. Bear in mind too that this does nothing for increasing attendance and so a business case for the expenditure might be challenging in the current economic climate. The Club is more likely to spent money on necessary or regulatory stadium matters.
  15. There won't be 50,000 to choose from. Rule out Broomloan for a start re missing OF games and rule out wherever the safe standing was placed. If that was Sandy Jardine Front then that must be a total (BL + SJ front) of about 10,000 seats for a start. The majority of the remaining seats are probably populated by folks who like me wouldn't want to give up their seat. this will not be an easy issue to resolve particularly as those who will actually be in safe standing will be in a minority. I've chosen my seat, it remains in the Sandy Jardine front, year 25. (I'll lay odds that most of those in our stand feel the same and don't want to move behind the goals in the Copland, or up into the Club deck
  16. I mentioned earlier that I have been in GF3 for 24 years and wouldnt want to move (from one of the larger seated areas). The point I should have made, and I guess I am not alone, is that I have SAT DOWN for 24 years and don't suddenly want to STAND UP for 90 mins in all weathers. I do it at Hampden because, that's just how it is, but I'd rather be in my seat at Ibrox, jumping from it when we score or get a Beaton given against us! just my view
  17. Good for you mate but I still wouldn't support me (and a few thousand others that are clearly happy to sit ) moving to another stand. I expect that I am not the only "nimby" but good luck if an area can be found.
  18. As a GF3 occupant of 24 years I say politely no.
  19. Not exactly what they said. They can't find any trace of a complaint, which is quite different. Given the passage of time that is not unusual.
  20. PVGs are not automatically transferable from one job to another. Who knows what may have happened since the existing certificate was granted?
  21. I stand by what I said, and I didn't work in that rancid building. ( and I won't add a FFS for effect either )
  22. Yes he was.. back in mid 2000s I got Champions League tickets (set of three) via a family member of his (work mate) and when I was given the tickets they were for the Club Deck and had his name on them ???
  23. All this nine men nonsense. Have they no seen Star Trek? If Fotheringham had been sent off it would have changed the course of time and we might have not brought Garner on in the first place ???
