  1. Brilliant news GB .... you are "Simply The Best" ..... nothing comes close to those three little words to describe you mate ..... no-one other than yourself could have pulled this off with the style you have ....... I know this will be a great success for Joshua's Fund and hope all the Adair family have a day they will never forget .... they certainly all deserve it. Well done also to all the 8 Bears who gave up their seats and Specialised Security for reaching beyond the call of duty to help to get this wee Bear, and all his family the first class treatment they deserve on the 1st of April.
  2. I had to go back and re-read who you quoted mate .... as I thought your were reporting both of them were to be interviewed for the post ...... it's been a very long day today ....
  3. ... DK has driven us mad with some of the shite he has come out with ... right enough ..... but if he continues to cause KJ to shit the bed because he is being ignored .... I'm unaccustomly all for this affirmative action ... and say well done Dave, you are now getting the message we are sick to death with the daily retard and all who work there ..... and thanks for sorting out one of our main wishes.
  4. ..... OK then .... out foxed again .....
  5. Great to have you back after your successful purging .... and Asgard is no longer under threat from their treachery .... PS :- We did the dishes and tidied up .... well Sweetheart and Zetland did .... all us guys supervised ....
  6. FFS mate .... that is so mental but so funny ... I bet you even Dave would piss himself .....
  7. Sometimes the best comedy is when it's unintentional, Bud ..... and your wee post script was a perfect example of that ..... most proper humour is generally off the bat, and with the right timing .... it hits the spot .....
  8. Not surprised Barry was confused ... it seems to be a habit with him. I was at a Q&A many years ago and one of the speakers was John Brown (I think he was a youth coach at the time?) ....... and he tells of ....when stating to the group of players he was coaching, that they would be going on a half hour run at the end of their training stint ....... guess who asked miserably, "Fuck's sake ... how long is that going to take us then?" None other than our future Captain .....
  9. Stop it now Jack ..... sensible suggestions upset people .... the rumour going around is that suggestions like your's are to be issued with a public health warning before going to print ....
  10. Cheers for the info concerning his circumstances of late .... sorry to hear his Dad (a good Bear) passed away ... this must be affecting him, and glad to see he is playing through it. I was never a fan of his ... but give him credit for his time with us and hope he has a good career in the game.
  11. Aye ..... Club 1872 ......
  12. We have had some wonderful talent at our Club over the years ..... and Davie Cooper is up there with the best of them ..... sadly missed but not forgotten .... thanks OP for keeping his memory alive. 🇬🇧
  13. Spot on T ........ good thread this also. Spurs may have the lion's share of Jewish followers mate ..... but I remember in the mid sixties being told by a Jewish Arsenal fan that they don't hold the monopoly and that a fair portion of the Hebrew faith preferred Highbury to White Hart Lane .... that just might be where the Israeli connection comes in ... not sure though ..... but it sounds logical to me.
  14. That's a cracker mate .... funny as hell ..... The Black Country right enough ..... that area was called that even before the "darkies" came to settle there .... talk about irony ....
  15. Mine too mate .... never ever asked him .... (as they were there when I started going ... taking for granted they had always been there) .... but it must have been a spectacle back then right enough with it being the first time .... I think it still is today ... love Ibrox at night when it is all lit up like a Xmas tree ... magic ....
  16. Aah! .... the auld provi cheque era ...... now that's when credit really was credit ..... tanner a week for 50 years ... no stress to affect your health .... when men were men and women were also men ..... the good auld days mate .....
  17. Spot on mate. From something I read years ago my memory said 1953 was the first time we used floodlights ..... but had to google it and found this mate and this guy sort of covers things. I just kind of tidied it up to make it easier to read .... I don't think Sam will mind .... ......................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Posts ....62,486 Rangers Under Floodlight So when did Rangers get involved with floodlit football ? Well,it depends what you mean.There had been experimental matches with mixed Rangers sides as early as 1953. Ibrox presented technical difficulties because of its close proximity to Glasgow airport, which in those days was a couple of miles nearer the city of Renfrew. River mist and fog had also to be taken into consideration and Rangers were almost alone among major Scottish and English clubs in not going for the conventional pylon system. The first big floodlight match was a friendly against English rivals of long standing, Arsenal doing the opening honours. And in 1955-56 the first League match played under floodlights in Scotland featured Rangers and Queen of the South at Ibrox. The home side took to the new medium right away and none more so than Don Kichenbrand who scored five goals in an 8-0 win and attracted such unforgettable headlines as "The Rhino Comes Out At Night" It was clear that there was enormous public interest for such matches and an added impetus was given by the development of European competitions just at this time and over 50 years or so since,there have been many memorable nights under floodlights,notably the 2-0 win against Wolves and the narrow 1-0 loss to Real Madrid. Even these were put in the shade in season 1992-93 when no one fortunate enough to be there will ever forget the gritty comeback against Marseilles and the Scott Nisbet goal which brought victory against Bruges. A great floodlit honour came Rangers way in 1961 they were invited to open the Hampden Park floodlights which had been surprisingly long in arriving,with a match against their great European opponents, Eintracht Frankfurt. For the only time in recorded football history a friendly floodlit match attracted a six-figure crowd,although with Eintracht 3-0 up at one stage visions of another rout flitted before everyone's eyes.Rangers battled on and two goals from a very improbable source, Harold Davis,meant that honour was saved even if the match was not quite salvaged. For more than half a century the roads out of the city centre have been jam-packed on big match nights,too much for poor Willie Henderson who suffered the tortures of the damned when in 1962 the breakdown of a friend's car caused him to arrive at Ibrox too late to play in the return leg of the tie with Standard Leige which began with Rangers 4-1 down. On their own patch Rangers won 2-0 so the absence of Henderson may well have been crucial. The introduction of floodlights transformed the game. Strips were altered to take account of it and the later kick-offs in winter allowed fans to travel from further afield when people still worked on Saturday mornings. Above all, it allowed the Scottish football follower to see at regular intervals the cream of European footballers and to judge how the domestic game stood in relation to them. ......................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................
