A pint with Novo

Recommended Posts

His lob over Douglas at the piggery is my all time favourite Old Firm goal.

A fine finish it was indeed. Mendes in the 4 2 game for me

Not quite legendary status but I don't imagine many Rangers fans putting him down.  He scored some classic goals for us and I like him. Must pop into NN10 one day

I like him. Must admit I went off him for a while but he clearly loves us and he’s scored many an important goal. 

The thing I like now is he’s starting to speak out against the treatment of being associated with Rangers. He was in the paper the other week saying he fears he can’t get a managerial job because of his connections to us. 

Obviously his health scare will have an impact but it probably gives clubs an added excuse not to take him on. 

Will need to pop into the pub one day.

Novo irritates me. Can't help it.

You could avoid a thread with Novo in the title for a start, but then I suppose you wouldn’t get to enjoy a wee cry for attention.

You’re literally the most contrary cunt on here when it comes to Rangers matters though. 😂 

I've always been fairly consistent in my opinion of Novo though, if you can be arsed checking back through all the Novo threads. Even as a player he irritated me with all his gesturing and cringey patter to ingratiate himself with the fans. I watched him do a half time draw at a game recently and after answering the usual tedious qiestions that all ex players get about how much he loved playing at Rangers, he suddenly shouted out "Rangers fans is ze best in ze fucking world!" or something equally as cringey, to rapturous applause. John Greig or Richard Gough wouldn't be swearing in front of kids and women.

Was there ever any conclusion to the rumours that the Marshalls are in some way connected to Novo's pub?

I'm sure that was against Osijek. I did find that a bit inappropriate myself tbh, and slightly cringey.

Great person and a good player with over 200 games.A hero  rather than a legend for me.

The fact folk are still talking about the plrasure he brought and the tims still hating him confirms his status as a legend. 

There's only one Nacho Novo...

A legend, most definitely yes.

Not for being a world class player like Laudrup, but for his love of the club and in the manner he contributed.

He bleeds blue. He has an affinity with the club and the fans that he obviously holds dear and played such an important part in his life.

The taigs simply fucking hate him which tells it's own story and he isn't too keen on them either.

Yes he was a player with limitations, but he always gave 100% and never hid. You could see the pride oozing out of him wearing that blue jersey. I think he would have died for us if it came to it.

He gets it and treasures every moment of it.

Met the wee man a few times now and every time he always chats away about the bears etc. Had a few misconceptions about him also before I actually met him in person. Great guy.

I can't say that I consider him a great player but he was a trier, total effort/commitment always. Up attacking, back defending he worked for the team. Wish we'd had more like him.

He might not have been world class like a Laudrup or a Gascoigne but undoubtedly is a legend of our club.

He never hid and always stepped up when we needed him most with important goals. What I’d give for a player with his attitude now.

Novo understood what it was to be a Rangers player and how privileged he was to be one and he gave us all he had and more, I wouldn’t say calling him a legend is unreasonable.

Unless by club legend we're solely defining that by how good someone was as a player.

This - some folk in this place can’t help themselves - does he make it into my top 11 best players -no - but he is in my top 5 legends  - love us, hated them, his attitude, that penalty, - some make legend status by  ability - Nacho makes it on attitude, presence at big moments and sheer enthusiasm for the club and fans. Absolute legend !

Lee Wallace is a Rangers legend, nowhere near the greatest player

Absolutely.  He might not be a legend as a player to many,  but definitely good to the fans:)  

I think it really boils down to what a legend is TBH in someone's mind, IMHO he gave his all for the club and loved the club and everything that comes with it including the fans and will defend the club and everything that comes with it so to me he is a legend, another person will consider a legend someone who played so many games, won so many trophies, scored so many goals and so on.
