Unpopular Thoughts/opinions About The Rangers

Recommended Posts

There's nothing wrong with fans shouting abuse at players at games, i'm one for believing clapping and cheering shite passes will do no good, yet that's what some people believe fans should do even when they've paid a fortune to sit in the cold and watch shite.

When I say abuse I do mean within reason, clearly anybody that stoops as low as racism, insulting family etc are arseholes.

Depends what years you are on about.

In the years of the old Derry, which are now hailed as the great atmospheres, Ibrox could be rocking for certain games in Europe, derby games, and other big crowd matches.

However, during run of the mill games with smaller crowds, I remember the Derry would be the only section of the ground singing for the most part...unless it was right after a goal, or things got heated.

At some of these games we'd often watch from the celtic end when Rangers were shooting that way, where it was most noticeable that only the Derry part of the ground was doing the singing and chanting.

That's the way I remember it anyway.

With the exception of maybe a Tynecastle or a Pittodrie, the tarriera away support is far louder than ours.

The old Derry brings back some wonderful memories.

One of the things , that sticks with me is a full Ibrox big European night or game against them, Used to get three different songs being song at different parts of the ground. Well think my memory is intact :lol:

My fav years ago was the Green Grassy Slopes of the Boyne

Scum support are pish home and away, watched their games away to Hibs and Aberdeen and you could hardly hear them apart from when they scored.

Personally I think our away support is better.

The amount of older Rangers supporters I meet who used to meet their mates and stand at the same pillar as me, in the heart of the Derry is unreal. I don't know how the fuck we all managed to fit into the wee space round that beam. :D

Too many of our fans will look for something to be offended at.

The atmosphere outside europe & the old firm is dire.

Davis is not the quality of player many regard him as.

I am laughing at what you said about different parts of the ground starting their own songs, it was crazy. :lol:

If only we could get back to the days when, after they launched into one of their ditties, we'd all just be shouting "shut up ya f****n bastards" and then retaliate by getting one of our own songs going. They had no problem in doing the same (different insults of course).

The atmosphere created is why it was talked about as the greatest club game in the world.

Thanks sectarian industry. You robbed Scotland of one of the world's great sporting occasions by creating a culture of everyone being offended, in jig time. All because your hatred of Rangers made you want to show everyone how bad it's supporters are.

Under number 13 was a great meeting place for lots of the fans.

Can you mind when someone had taken ill that people used to wave their white hankies for the ambulance people, and you would have to pass the person that was sick down to the front of the crowd. :D

I'm glad they banned the drink from Ibrox. I'd like them to refuse entry to drunks.

Murray should have chased ma baw instead of Le Guen.

I never understood the attraction of allowing 666fc supporters into the gound. As in at no time over near five decades of attendance did I ever want them there. If I was Whyte, I'd ban them now.

Mo Johnston proved something I'd always known about The Rangers support - they never really gave a fuck who played for us as long as they performed on the park.

At no time have I ever felt there was a 'unified support'.

All hints of 'flute' music should be banned from the ground - it's worse than a fork being dragged over the inside of a pan.

Ronald de Boer took us for a ride apart from the 2002-2003 season.

I also remember the students charity week (when they brought out the Ygorra mag?), you'd sometimes get the students walking round the track holding out a big blanket for the fans to throw coins into.

I'd rather Ibrox had 5'000 fans willing to sing and support the team for 90 minutes than 50'000 who sit in silence.

You would have been suicidal at some games from years ago when tiny crowds were also silent.

We aren't going to sign every player available purely because we have some form of European/Champions League football.
