  1. Sadly for me I only saw guys like McCoist, Durrant and Goram when they played for Kilmarnock and Motherwell.
  2. He's probably right though. They will score with their first chance of the second half, almost guaranteed.
  3. So far as I know, they stopped and a few years later another club was formed, who were just known as Carlisle loyal. They met in the Masonic club on Portland square. I actually went to a couple of their events about ten years ago. I've asked around people I know and it turns out that I know the guy who owns the Milbourne, the building mind, he doesn't run the pub. He's a Rangers fan too, so is his son whom I went to school with. That'll explain why it's now a Rangers pub! I've been away from Carlisle for a while now, it's funny the things you miss. And unfortunately the tarriers do have a slip house now. You remember the Golden Lion on London Road? It's now a tacky Irish Traveller dive called Gallagher's. Proper shithole, makes the Roadhouse look classy.
  4. Yeah he definitely seems quite bitter against us at times for some reason. I can only think it's playing for Motherwell that's done it. The point I was making that given his background I'd be surprised if he really did hate us and it's not a bit "for show" for his media work.
  5. Reliably informed that he's a Glentoran fan. I'd be surprised if he hated us, but ten years of playing for Motherwell has maybe warped his mind!
  6. Yeah I think that's right. I often wondered what Davie Weir's role was in it all. Seemed like he didn't do a lot. I always kind of expected the defenders to improve under him, but they just didn't.
  7. Coach and horses in Kingstown used to be a pretty decent Rangers pub back in the day. Supporters buses used to pick up/drop off there. Haven't been in there for about ten years so no idea what it's like now. And I had no idea about the Milbourne!
  8. Warburton is obviously a good coach, but probably never going to be a good manager. Someone you'd put in charge of the youths, or have as an assistant manager.
  9. My only worry about this season is what the fuck do we do if Waghorn gets injured?
  10. Mohsni needs dropped, he's gone of the boil recently, going to cost us points at some point.
  11. The bastards have built a bloody fence which means the hole in the bushes I found over the summer to sneak in to the ground has been boarded up. So there goes my free ticket!
  12. The pitch is absolutely brilliant. You could play snooker on it. Our reserve lads played the ball on the deck last night, no excuse for our first team not to do the same.
  13. I was born there The NI link is still strong, I can think of (off the top of my head) at least 8 Rangers supporters clubs in Belfast alone. It's difficult to judge anyway, as with the amount of people who support Rangers and an EPL club at the same time, if you see someone in a Chelsea/Liverpool/Man Utd top then they could still support Rangers as well to some degree. I'm sure Ibrox would easily be in the top 10 most visited football grounds for fans from NI. You mean when a player who is seen to know what it means to play for the club is signed instead of players who aren't rangers fans of greater ability out there? I agree with that last point. I think we pick on the Scottish lads the most. Though I dont think Lafferty has gotten off lightly with us over the years, unless you think he deserves more criticism than he's getting!
  14. Have you been to Ni yourself at any point to gauge it for yourself? And how the hell can you speak for Healy/Lafferty? Do you know them personally and know that they didn't grow up Rangers fans? Is Amac lying when he says he knows Healy's family personally and their all massive Rangers fans, Healy's dad even running the local Rangers club?
