  1. Should be nowhere near the top flight with that pitch from J&W Carpets. Tinpot Ferranti Thistle shite.
  2. It was pretty poor sometimes, you could walk in at 2.55 and pick your seat. After the club invested in rebuilding the stadium it was half full or less for a lot of games. I remember Jock Wallace’s first game back in 1983 against Dundee United and the crowd was a well above normal 27,000.
  3. Everyone on both sides of my family was a bluenose, mother’s family lived a bye kick from Ibrox in Orkney Street across from the polis station, old man’s side weren’t from much further away in Kingston. I wouldn’t be surprised if my great-grandfathers saw the Gallant Pioneers.
  4. Was there, I would have been 15. Thought I was dreaming when we went ahead in the second minute then scored another. Glad other posters have mentioned Beckenbauer and other Bayern players arguing and losing the plot, was beginning to wonder if I had imagined that. We stayed about 15 minutes walk from the Stadium so my old man and I were home in time to see Dixie’s moon launch penalty, it rounded off a perfect night. If Carlsberg did European semi final nights with 155,000 spectators in the same city...
  5. Marseille 1992. Munich would not have been big enough.
  6. Obviously knew he had been very ill but hoped he had turned the corner, the news came as a shock. I’ve been more upset at this than losing members of my family. He was so much more than the Rangers manager, he was a man loved and respected by so many, that’s clear with the tributes being paid today. RIP Sir Walter.
  7. Don’t even know their score but I’m assuming they won convincingly. I had one look at all the tarrier names in that Dundee line up and decided it was a foregone conclusion.
  8. If big Angie was the best they could come up with this time round, who the fuck are they going to appoint after they sack him?
  9. Paul McStay coming back as manager?
  10. Saw a guy wearing a Fernando Ricksen T-shirt in Paignton in Devon yesterday, it’s nice to see his memory being kept alive.
  11. Always saddens me to hear of the passing of a Ranger, especially when it’s someone my own age who I can clearly remember wearing the Royal Blue. Ally Dawson lived the dream and gave his all. RIP.
  12. Sure I heard years ago tarrier Charlie Burchill of Simple Minds lived there.
  13. Disappointed to see us still tied in with an online betting company, for personal reasons.
  14. He’s always been a wee short arse smart arse. Tries to come out with something clever and falls flat on his face. Typical symptoms of wee angry man syndrome.
  15. So Aribo over Roofe or Hagi. If big Joe’s on his game he could destroy them.
  16. At least I’ll be able to watch the whole game this time. Had to leave at halftime the last time to get admitted to hospital. I remember thinking “if I don’t come through this at least I’ve finally seen Alfie score against the bastards”.
  17. Sounds like an accordion band.
  18. My only memories of him are the Hamilton cup game and the final v Dundee Hibernian.
  19. Noticed Hamburg don’t have Emirates any more I take it there must be a clause enabling them to drop relegated teams. Hope we finish with online gambling companies, fucking scum.
  20. 2-0 game at the Piggery. We broke them psychologically that day.
  21. Michty me, the Broons have Dial-up internet at 10 Glebe Street.
  22. Ask me what it doesn’t say, that would be quicker.
