    I hope Big Sam isn't approached as if Pedro isn't given time then he's who I'd rather see take charge afore McInnes. Plus Sam might actually get Scotland to a tournament, and I enjoy noising up the Scotland fans at work.
  2. Forum activity.

    More bigots would increase traffic. The Tims love nothing more than to feign offence.
  3. *****The Official Rangers vs Hibs Thread*****

    The sheer hubris when Whitaker tries to skip past Alves and Cardoso and gets put in his place on the deck.
  4. * The Generic Laugh at celtc Thread *

    Desmond's tax evasion issues and the investigations into child abuse that could both potentially cause bother for them. Celtic fans are as ignorant as mod people about tax avoidance; most don't seem to be aware that they've used avoidance schemes, or that Desmond even has links to organised crime. If he is investigated by authorities in the UK and/or Ireland, they'll genuinely be taken by surprise. It hasn't entered their heids that it's not in their own club's interests to try to hammer us even more over the EBTs, as in a few years the shoe could very well be on the other foot. I don't think Celtic will ever admit to decades of systematic child abuse being covered up - and even facilitated - and the shady dealings of McGinn and Kelly won't be acknowledged until they're both long gone. I do, however, think the child abuse in football is going to leave a black mark on them over the next few years. Some tims know it too, and that's why they're desperate to make out that Neery being employed by Rangers is "the same thing." (And he'd never have been employed had Hibs former chairman not covered up the abuse he carried out I Edinburgh....)

    Organised sandwich eating protests will lead to us being stripped of honours.
  8. UFC live.

    It's OK. He'll be out injured again soon enough.
  9. He wanted to move on at the end of last season, so I don't think he'll care much if the junkies don't like him.
  10. Fabio Cardoso - Brutal defender

    He's nothing like Svensson though. Not a similar type of player.

    That's racist. Reporting you to Marcel Desailly.
  12. Does Pedro have the dressing room?

    It was known for a good while before he was officially announced that Le Guen was going to be our next manager though. Murray originally wanted him in the summer of 2005, but he wanted a break, and McLeish was left in limbo rather than walking away on the high from helicopter Sunday like he should have.
  13. Windass

    Windass could fuck that up too.

    Everyone dies, mate. Yassss!
  17. Who do you want to Replace Pedro?

    No, Pedro was lined up to be his assistant.
  18. I'm not at all embarrassed to be happy for Halliday. I hope his loan move works out for him, and that any subsequent transfer works out well. I do think he could have been a good player for us, and it not working out is as much psychological as it is about ability; he'll do well at another side. Other than absolute shitebags or players that burn bridges, I like seeing former Rangers players - or Rangers players out on loan - do well. If Mo Edu won the MLS Cup I'd be happy for him; if Steven Whitaker broke both his legs in his Hibs debut, I wouldn't give a fuck.
  19. He had his chance to prove he warranted whatever figure he & his agent were holding out for, and in typical McKay fashioned he turned up twice under Pedro. He's in a routine were the odd goal or assist warrants a pat on the back, rather than it being an expectation; Pedro sussed that out, just like most Rangers fans already had. Honestly, I think Warburton is a horrible manager for him to be playing under during important years of his development. Even if he performs well at Forest, how will he cope when he's playing under someone who expects his wingers to change games on a weekly basis?
  20. He's not good enough to be our main striker, though he might be a useful squad player. I do think his confidence was dented by the first half of the season under Warburton, so it's hard to say for sure if he's just not good enough. My biggest criticism isn't even that he missed so many sitters last season - it's that at times he looked scared to try. I'd rather have Louis Moult as our main striking option after Morelos and Herrera, if only because he's not afraid to get physical, and scores goals. But if Pedro can thinks he can get something out of Waghorn, then good luck to them both.
  21. Gascoigne

    Sod's law they go on sale the week before I'm paid.
  22. Gascoigne

    Not only that, but other teams tried to hijack the transfer, and Gazza wouldn't listen to the offers his agent had in front of him - as he'd already given Walter his word. It's disgusting what the media did to him. His stepdaughter played on his surname, but they pretty much destroyed any relationship he had with her and his other children; he thought they were the source of the leaks to the press, which worsened his mental state, and he didn't trust the kids when they tried to get him help. The Record can fuck off with their obvious biases, but the Newscorp papers like The Sun aren't any better.
  23. I think it speaks volumes that his mentor seems to be Warburton, the coach that believes Jock Wallace treated players too harshly. Any professional that needs the arm around the shoulder all the time has no place at a big club. I'd expect players like Beerman and Barjonas to need that given their age, or even Bates due to the jump in levels from Raith to Rangers, but McKay shouldn't need to be cajoled by his manager all the time at this point - especially given that McCoist sent him out on loan years ago to give him a reality check and kick up the arse.
  24. Middle to Front Creative Blockage = Few Goals

    We do need a better attacking midfield option than Windass, and I'd feel more confident with a goalscorer that's proven at this level. I'd like to see us shift Waghorn, Forrester, Windass and O'Halloran and bring in McLean and Walker; Moult too, maybe. But it will take time for Herrera and Morelos to gel together, and the benefit of some of these closed doors games is they've been playing against the opposition they'll face in the league. Mannus is a good keeper - along with Lewis at Aberdeen, he's probably the best in the league besides Gordon and Foderingham - so I'm not overly concerned that he's kept a shut out in the closed doors game. The strength in depth of good attacking options concerns me more than that scoreline.
  25. Pedro probably didn't stop Joe from beating Barrie up and taking his lunch.
