  1. Ralph Brand = though I wish my dad had held back his passion for a couple of years so that it could have been one of my all time heroes - Jimmy MIllar
  2. The stats dont lie and the signs are good, but Ill be more confident when we manage to keep clean sheets against teams who are prepared to have a real go at us.
  3. Dont think any goal anywhere will ever beat this....
  4. A truly dreadul day - hard for those of this generation to understand how news of such a huge disaster could simply trickle through but thats exactly how it happened in these pre-social media days. My brother & his mate Chub had gone to the game - my parents took me to the Hillhead cinema that night to see the Disaster movie Airport - unbeknown on our very doorstep a real life disaster was unfolding. It started in the cinema with a series of whispers which soon grew to a mass panic as relatives grew worried about loved ones. Eventualy my father phone home from a public phone box
  5. Imagine that mentality in the dressing room or on the park from a supposed leader - dreadful.
  6. The war against racism in Scotland has suffered a considerable setback in recent times, despite the multitude of diversity workshops being run regularly in our country. Such setbacks have not come courtesy of a group of marauding right wing thugs embarrassing our nation but an ignorant media displaying a complete lack of self-awareness and compliance with the material and training provided in the aforementioned diversity workshops. Our national broadcaster, BBC Scotland, lowered the crossbar considerably, providing a platform for allegations that a victim’s claim of racial abuse was solel
  7. You do have to wonder GEC. How can the manager be so "shocked" after the performances against Stranraer & St Mirren ? Kris Boyd touched on the problem post match which he mentioned SG's favoured 13/14 players - but what about when they are not cutting it ? Do they keep the jersey week after week despite poor perfomances ? What kind of motivation is that ? Jones & Docherty must be wondering what they have to do to get game when the failings from the game previously are ahead of them on the team sheet. Did anyone honestly expect Ojo to turn things around for us when he ca
  8. In 1928 Rangers faced celtic in the Scottish Cup Final, a trophy we had not won in 25 years and there was a real feeling of a Scottish Cup hoodoo. With captain Tomy Muirhead injured it seemed that the hoodoo showed no sign of abaiting and Dave Meiklejohn assumed the role. In 55 minutes the wee Blue Devil Alan Morton sent in a cross to Jimmy Fleming who saw his shot cleared of the line by the hand of Cetic defender Willie McStay. A penalty was awarded, but given the long standing hoodoo, there was no clambour to take it. Up walked Dave Meiklejohn and took charge. The whole furore o
  9. SB you can flip it any way you like like but the bottom line is that we wont win anything with a team which cant regularly keep a clean sheet.
  10. Tav's defensive inadequacy showing to the fore, we need to stop crowing about his goals/assists ratio - which is a poor benchmark to evaluate the defensive worth of a full back, whose primary role is defending.
  11. Pm me Hammer & I'll see what I can do.
  12. Spot on Jinty, When you are in a ring devoid of balance & fairness, you really have to box clever. The argument over TBB was lost years ago when Murray rolled over & accepted it & the narrative has been reinforced by Spiers & his ilk at BBC Scotland. . Particularly galling when those suposedly offended by the word only a matter of weeks ago proclaimed themselves a "Fenian Army" & wax lyrical abut being "bold fenian men". You dont need to be defence counsel to drive a wedge of reasonable doubt into this farcical situation, but we are where we are.The tyrannical, corrupt
  13. I retweeted the many various testimonies and pictures from bears outside the ground, some of them were clearly terrified by what transpired. Tom English & Michael Stewart, neither of whom witnessed it, have sought to dismiss this incident without any evidence - reckless, rancid and worhty of ridicule. The Club really needs to step up - Rangers SLO was present & will have reported back to them, also Club 1872 have numerous testimonies which usurp the sugestion there was no crush. Silence is not an option Rangers.
  14. "ponderous" was a word I heard elsewhere to describe it...very apt. Think SG needs to tinker with the formation & tactics to get the best out of the squad. Im worried about our attacking options. Overall the squad has undoubtedly been strenghtened, but Im not convinced Ojo & Jones are an upgarde on what we have lost - Kent & Candeias. Hopefully they will get into their stride and my fears will be unfounded
  15. Sorry to be negative but there was a real sense of dej vu watching the game today, our inability to keep a clean sheet and lack of inspiration or creativity in the final third. Wee Alfie really needs to get his sharpness back
