  1. Aberdeen Chairman calls for apology?

    The most embarassing aspect about this whole debacle is that chairman of Aberdeen clearly has a better understanding of statements which are worthy and befitting of Rangers Football Club than our own board.
  2. Club Statement

    Embarrassing, without a shred of class and totally undignified, not befitting our club. Whoever drafted it & those who approved it, should be chased from our club.
  3. Steve McClaren

    The Sun reporter Andy Devlin has admitted on twitter that this is "absolute guff" and the newspaper has now taken down the story. Sky Sports Scotland have regurgitated the story this morning, which is particulary embarrassing for them
  4. David Moyes

    Its no secret on here Davie Moyes and I used to go to games regularly together - his own family were bears including his brother Kenny. Davie and I lost touch when he signed for them & I joined the Marines.

    I had an clear and unrestricted view of it from the Copland bud, to say I went ape shit would be an understatement...

    You are far more charitable than me KK - I would have opted for the term "shafted"

    I'll never forget this..Beaton's decision - free kick to Hibs
  10. Ryan Jack

    If, as they say, these things "average out over a season" - we're in for a bumper second half when penalties & offside goals rain down like mana from heven
  11. Ryan Jack

    You really have to wonder PH, I never thought Id see a worse display of refereeing in my lifetime than the Hibs game at Ibrox & then the Motherwell game came along. Thats 2 reds Jack has received which have been overturned - its not beyond reason to suggest his erroneous ordering off has cost us dearly. The club really need to keep speaking out on this as per their recent statement - its not paranoia when your claims about sub-standard refereeing are firmy based in fact
  12. Ally McCoist

    Na bud, just got fed up with Destiny 2
  13. Ally McCoist

    When did we start issuing free drugs to members ?
  14. Davie Provan gets it almost right...

    Hard to believe after an AGM in a tent & Lewis McLeod sold to "keep the lights on" Provan could come out with this sort of pish.
  15. Kiernan - Alves Halliday - Jack Holt - Dorrans Wilson - Cardosa Waghorn - Morelos Garner - Herrera I guess your defintition of "backwards" is way different to mine.
  16. Update on Ibrox Safe Standing | Club 1872

    I agree with that logic V. What I would say however is that its clear events from January 2nd 1971 are still particularly raw for those who were there & it will proably never leave them, therefore I think many will be cautious or concerned, albeit mis-placed, at the thought of the re-introduction of standing areas. I think as a support we need to be both respectful of and work with those harbouring such concerns, to allay such fears and convince them safe standing is not a regressive step or a compromising of the safety ethos which saw us re-build our magnificent stadium.

  19. Police Scotland OBFA submission

    Still to be decided I think - hence the request for submissions from all interested and relevant parties bud

    If the Rangers support were a jury, I think it would safe to say we had reached a majority rather than a unanimous decision on Pedro. An early exit to European minnows from Luxembourg on the back of an embarrassing defeat to our greatest rivals at home, whilst losing our long-established home record to the sheep would suggest that a fairly compelling prima facie case had been established by that majority. Furthermore, an inauspicious start to the season makes it all the more difficult to introduce a reasonable element of doubt into the minds of those who are currently sitting in the majority camp and whose minds are clearly made up so to speak. Should we pause for a moment and recall Advocaat’s multi-million £ squad, albeit not with home advantage, losing 6-2 at Parkhead? Should we consider that even some great Rangers managers, with far more settled squads suffered worse starts in their first 3 games of the domestic league? Should we ponder the fact that abysmal refereeing had a major say in 2 of our last 3 league games? Perhaps we could reflect on the fact we are into a rebuilding programme which is clearly not yet complete, before we decide to sack the architect. The first few years of Sir Alex Ferguson’s tenure at Manchester United were characterised by something of a roller coaster ride which saw them take a few backward steps before their record winning period of success. Having been appointed in 1986, it was season 92/93 before the Reds won their first championship under the tenure of Sir Alex. While such a comparison certainly qualifies as an “apples and oranges” evaluation, the virtues of patience and a realistic assessment of the challenges faced should not be excluded either. As always, the OF games will have a considerable bearing on the manager’s future. We have to hope Kranjcar’s recent interview where he suggested we could lose all 4 OF games and still challenge for the title is a form of delusion exclusive to Niko, and not the rest of the dressing room or the management. There is a popular saying that the “league table never lies”. Would it be prudent to wait until the end of the season and put this theory to the test rather than jump on the managerial merry go round prematurely?
  21. 12 Angry Men

    It depends on the intepretation of "maximise".- I think during a period of re-building and restructuring it is unrealistic to expect that your achievements will emulate previous settled squads, many of which were of a far higher calibre of player.
  22. 12 Angry Men

    Would you not agree though Frank it is unrealistic to demand, as Gmanpoints out, that every single season has to be maximised ? I think that is simply an unrealistic achievement given our resources. We as fans want our youth structure to work - Im not convinced we have the patience as a support to see this to fruition. Given that part of the a "good manager" DNA must be the identifying and recruiting of good players - how long would you consider the timescale for us to establish whether or not we are the 2nd best team - 3 games into a domestic season ?
  23. 12 Angry Men

    @Reformation Bear - Id certainly settle for that timescale RB
  24. 12 Angry Men

    I concur the European result is indefensible Frank. But we are 3 games into our domestic season with the players Pedro has brought in , and more importantly he has access to the players which fit his sytem and footballing ethos (where the inherited players didnt). Im neither convinced he is a great coach nor am I similarly convinced he is a complete dud. The only thing I am convinced about is that its too early to judge
  25. 12 Angry Men

    Its not pretending it didnt happen - its whether its an accurate tool in assesing his competency for the role for a variety of reasons
