    *****Official Rangers vs Shkupi match thread*****

    I like Tav mate. I just thought he was honestly miles away for that shot off the bar. His jobs to defend first, attack second. Agree someone should have covered better for him so they can take some of the blame but it's definitely partly on Tav too.

    *****Official Rangers vs Shkupi match thread*****

    Bit underwhelming. With that said if our defence can keep registering clean sheets and be hard to break we will be fine. I thought Tav was caught miles out of position a couple of times tonight and a better team may have exploited it. They ended up hitting the bar one of those times. Middleton looks an absolute gem but I wouldn't start him away. Windass could have had a couple goals on another day. Middleton is going to push Candeias or Murphy hard for a starting jersey in the next few months. We looked like we are lacking an attacking mid and someone with presence up front to me. I'm not convinced Murphy and Candeias are actually good enough to play for us either. Oh well, we scored plenty last year so maybe if we have sorted the defence out we can challenge this year.

    England related thread

    All my English colleagues are doing my head in and constantly slag off Scottish football and go on and on about the EPL and how "footballs coming home". I hope Modric and Rakitic run them ragged and England get fucking smashed tonight. Being a Rangers fan does not mean you need to abandon your country and support England, you're Scottish and British, certainly not English (unless of course you are).

    Rangers v Bury live RTV in the uk

    Didn't really think of that. Tbh it was just awkward, clearly knew half the people around the seat and was swearing and flapping his gums. I had my wee nephew with me so I was keen to avoid a scene. Tbh I didn't know how to respond, froze and surprised a bit initially as he clearly bought a ticket to get in and despite it being a sell out made his way to "his seat". When I rocked up to the seat with the wee man and he started swearing and muttering and moving over in the seat I just thought fuck it. Then he spent the whole game swearing at our players 🤷🏻‍♂️

    Rangers v Bury live RTV in the uk

    Mate I was visiting home (live abroad) a few years back and was at Ibrox for one of the championship play off games. Some cunt started shouting at me cause my ticket was for "his seat". The dickhead wouldn't move so we shared the seat for the whole game. Wasn't sure what choice I had beyond scrapping with a fellow bear or looking like a poof and getting a steward on our own fans 😂

    How long have you supported the Rangers?

    First game was age 8 years old against Ajax in the CL 96, second was 7-0 against Dunfermline in 97!

    Modern day heroes

    Feel sorry for the younger crowd citing Lee Wallace as a hero... what he done was commendable but he is never a Rangers hero in my eyes... Heroes for me having started watching Rangers in the mid 90's are Albertz, Durrant, McCoist, Ian and Barry Ferguson, Gough, Goram, Laudrup, Gazza, Amoruso, McCann, and then to a slightly lesser extent some like Klos, Numan, De Boer, Novo, Boyd.... all these players provided me with many happy memories. That 9IAR team were just unbelievable and during the Advocaat era we really should have had a proper go at the Champions League or the UEFA Cup... the amount of times we seemed to be drawn in groups of death and narrowly fall out of the group stages was unbelievable. Those games against Parma when they had a beast of a team live long in the memory.

    MOH in with the beggars yesterday

    Now he has admitted it through his agent he should be told to fuck off or put through some intense training on his own for 2 years. This is completely and utterly unacceptable. As for not knowing his seat until he arrived... I'm fairly sure he could have left and watched the game on TV after he noticed. I hope Gerrard or Allen tell him to get to fuck asap.

    HKFC Soccer Sevens

    I think we will always be welcome. Its more if we choose to attend and I believe we were one of the last teams to accept this year and left it quite last minute. We always do well and I see more Rangers shirts than any other club.. Villa a close second. It's amazing how far our reach is, the Newcastle Jets manager today was a Rangers fan from Scotland! We always have a few players in the Masters too and a Rangers masters won it before (it's not easy, plenty of ex Premium players. The team with Wes Brown, David James, Michael Brown and Lee Hendrie went out in groups today.) Inside is decent. It's just so bloody hot! You can get a beer or jugs of beer, hot dogs, bacon rolls, burgers, pizza etc. If you can find someone who is a member of the HKFC (hosts) you can get a decent fry up etc beforehand too. But I prefer being down on the pitch. Also there's activities and games and stuff for kids to do on an adjacent pitch if there is family in tow - bouncy castle, football challenges (beat the goalie, some of those modern training machines where boards light up for you to pass to etc). It's definitely a Much Smaller event than the Rugby Sevens which is just a huge party but rugby is shite. If there's any players etc you want to speak to it's easy as they just wander around. David James was sitting 2 seats along from me for a while today and the Rangers lads were sitting in the food area. If you want to know anything specific or want any photos etc tomorrow just let me know as I will be back again for the knockouts.

    HKFC Soccer Sevens

    Agree. Craig Mulholland was just telling Rangers to keep the ball and Barjonas mentioned he felt we went for it too much last year and were out on our feet later. It is absolutely scorching here today too, 34 degrees with 80% humidity, hottest day for the last couple weeks. Our team look much better this year than last and the difference in Barjonas is amazing. He was very poor last year but seems to have much more composure and is dictating games this year. Burt looking good too.

    HKFC Soccer Sevens

    I made a thread first but I will use this one 😒 To answer the quote - Newcastle needed to avoid losing by 3 goals to go through. We were through and top unless we lost. Barjonas was losing the rag a bit cause players wouldnt move forward. It was actually a small selection of Newcastle fans booing, a few of them were shouting because Newcastle were literally just sitting back and their coach kept telling them not to concede and they were through. Callum O'Hare of Villa is lighting the game's he's involved in up as he did last year. The lad looks absolutely class.

    2017/18 In A Nutshell

    The players showed today they have plenty of character. I'm not one to make knee jerk reactions but based on the results, performances and reactions to bad results this seaaon - we just aren't good enough. It's not a mentality problem, it's a quality problem. I'd like to see us sign a top glass goalkeeper, a couple of solid mid-late 20's centre backs as an absolute priority. If we don't make those signings then it won't matter who we sign in other positions because we will keep conceding. McGinn wouldn't be a bad signing but we have quite a lot of centre mids.. the 2 centre backs are the absolute musts imo. I think Morelos will rip it up next season with a good break and the learning experience of this season.

    Itk posters

    Hardly anyone can have "itk" sources tbh. I am in mutual circles with a couple of guys in the squad and they genuinely never have a clue what is going on behind the scenes. So unless someone knows one of our directors or people close to them then it's usually nonsense. The rumours in particular I find to be nonsense are those along the lines of "we will have £XM of investment from someone in X Country". The numbers would never be confirmed or finalized until they were ready to be announced and details at that level will only be shared at the very top.
