  1. Given the praise he received post game from SG, he may well have staked his claim for the shirt. I believe having a regular back 4 woul go some way to eradicating those defensive lapses.
  2. I retweeted the many various testimonies and pictures from bears outside the ground, some of them were clearly terrified by what transpired. Tom English & Michael Stewart, neither of whom witnessed it, have sought to dismiss this incident without any evidence - reckless, rancid and worhty of ridicule. The Club really needs to step up - Rangers SLO was present & will have reported back to them, also Club 1872 have numerous testimonies which usurp the sugestion there was no crush. Silence is not an option Rangers.
  3. What an absolute inspartion you have been gb with this endeavour - my cap is truly doffed Always. Its been an absolute pleasure wayching your efforts and contributing to this fundraiser and seeing the joy on the faces of those who have benefitted from your sterling efforts. You, have like any true Ranger, upheld the sacred trust expected of that accolade. Well done Sir !!
  4. "ponderous" was a word I heard elsewhere to describe it...very apt. Think SG needs to tinker with the formation & tactics to get the best out of the squad. Im worried about our attacking options. Overall the squad has undoubtedly been strenghtened, but Im not convinced Ojo & Jones are an upgarde on what we have lost - Kent & Candeias. Hopefully they will get into their stride and my fears will be unfounded
  5. Sorry to be negative but there was a real sense of dej vu watching the game today, our inability to keep a clean sheet and lack of inspiration or creativity in the final third. Wee Alfie really needs to get his sharpness back
  6. It doesnt really matter if the BBC listens to them or not, and from the information Club 1872 have provided it doesnt look as if they are. But there exists a complaints process that BBC have to take cognisance of - not dissimilar to those Bears who complained about the use of the Newco term to describe Rangers where the complaint ended up with the BBC Trust for arbitration and adjudication. The BBC Trust is no longer arbitrator in these matters therefore if club 1872 continue to escalate it, the matter will be referred to Ofcom for arbitration and adjudication. Furthermore I would suspect the action has been taken as a consequence of complaints from members - so that rather than acting as the Club's mouthpieces they are acting obo their members.
  7. Ineffective intervention ?? At least they are doing something to challenge the rancidness which exists at Pacfic Quay and keeping members and the widerfan base up to date with the scale & depth of the problem.
  8. I was meaning the wider national movements bud such as @stopbbcbias on Twitter
  9. Iys a good and clear update which demonstrates how utterly rancid Pacific Quay is. Rangers fans should be mobilisng to swell the ranks of those lobbying for an end to the BBC Licence monopoly.
  10. This is exemplerary of the problem - its not the media who are the problem but "obsessives" amongst the Rangers support. Despite the fact the national broadcaster saw fit to compile a montage of Morelos incidents and broadcast it outwith its sports section. Where our player is stereotyped due to his nation of origin and treated unfairly until he recieves less than balanced coverage in the media and subsequently less than balanced or fair review wheh subjected to retrospective discipline. But dont you worry this is all in us "obsessives" heads.
  11. You dont think there is a particular narrative being set ? Despite the evidence showing Broadfoot raking Fredo's achilles yet still Fredo draws the ire and pelters ? No surprise then that in such a climate appeals against red and yellow cards fail
  12. There was a considerable blip in the anti-Alfredo Morelos narrative currently being driven by sections of the media in Scotland. Sadly, the predictable one-way traffic was not brought to a sudden halt by an ex Rangers player speaking out, no, Barry Ferguson and Lee McCulloch were too busy acquiescing and adding to that negative narrative with criticism of their own. In a week which showed Kirk Broadfoot raking his studs down Alfredo’s Achilles heel, you might have thought the onslaught would abate for a few days – but alas, this is Scotland we are talking about. Instead it was left to Chris Jack of the Evening Times to write an article, https://www.eveningtimes.co.uk/sport/17510914.how-alfredo-morelos-has-gone-from-medellin-to-Rangers-multi-million-pound-man/ not only defending Alfredo, but in addition, humanising this young man so many have sought to dehumanise with comments such as “buffalo brains “and relating his upbringing to something from the Narcos Netflix series. Jack highlights a young man brought up in extreme poverty, who has never forgotten his roots, who remains respectful to his parents and the country of his birth, and for whom the lessons learned from such a harsh upbringing remain a driver towards success. Perhaps in any other country such a young man would be seen as a positive role model rather than the devil incarnate. But the comments of Ferguson and McCulloch really rankle – their adding to the anti-Morelos narrative serve to give it a sense of normality, when in fact it is anything but normal – it is in fact, abnormal. And no amount of ex Rangers players selling themselves to the highest bidder should allow us to lose sight of this fact. It has been a concerted campaign to demonise our prize asset and the likes of Ferguson and McCulloch, with their strong Rangers antecedents, adding their weight to the millstone being placed round Alfredo’s neck serve to give this concerted campaign a sense of credibility. Ferguson and McCulloch are by no means the worst, Kris Boyd demonstrating his ability to adapt to the anti-Rangers agenda with considerable aplomb following a series of articles and comments criticising his former club. His lack of consistency in his arguments demonstrate Boyd realises which side of the bread requires to be buttered to ensure a favourable return. You make your bed and you lie in it. I hope we as fans and in particular RSC’s will remember those who have served the dirty pieces of silver some sections of the media will pay in order to provide a sense of balance and credibility to that which is unbalanced and lacks credibility. Hopefully the club itself will add some solidarity when the same individuals go begging for tickets. “To be a Ranger is to sense the sacred trust of upholding all that such a name means in this shrine of football. They must be true in their conception of what the Ibrox tradition seeks from them. No true Ranger has ever failed in the tradition set him.
  13. I would. Any reasonable person, capable of a modicum of discernment, would realise our club is being held to and subjected to an unlevel playing field and would be moved to defend her.
  14. Calling out Matt Lindsay on twitter on his ridiculous article that the sheep support ar "untainted by bile"
  15. Im recovering from some medically related problems, which have left me floored.
