A Valid Question For Every Bluenose

As A Bluenose in my 50's I would like to ask every other Bear ( Older or Younger ) if they can remember a time when We were second Favs to win a Trophy in Scotland when the Great Unwashed were out of the picture. Yes Guys, I know there was a time when the so called new firm of The Sheep And Dundee Hibs Ruled the roost. That was quite a while ago now. As a matter of fact it was just before the greatest and in my opinion the most productive 12 years in our history happened.

To Get back to the original question, Has there ever been a time when going in to the last 8 of a competition in Scotland without the Septic ones being involved, have we ever been 2nd Favs and honestly thought why the F--k have they made us 2nd Favs.

I M H O We are still a long way off being 2nd Favs. The draw for the next round has been kind to us ( I Think ) Only time will tell. I honestly feel that if we can go on to win this cup it will be one of the greatest moments in our history and will maybe get some doubters off Allys Back.

We do not and dont deserve to be where we are at this moment in time. However, we are there and the only way that we can change it it to get out of it as soon as we can.

This brings me to my main point. Many media outlets have made the point that they dont feel that Ally is up for the job. He is tactcally unaware and is underachieving.

In a round about way I can see their point.

However, What Makes Ally Different From Lemmon. They are both in charge of teams that are playing in a ! horse race. So let us look at some facts of the last year.

Mr Lennon Managed to get his side through the Qualifying rounds into the Champs League proper. Quite lucky to do so but he done it all the same ( so I give him a bit of credit for doing so ) I would like to add.....Not as much as the unbiased scottish media gave him.

So that now leaves us with the 1 horse race scenario.

In the same competition ( The Scottish League Cup ) Super went out with his team of waifs and strays in the same round as the Multi Million Super Celts did. Yet the media in our beloved country seemed to think that The Rangers going out was as big a story as their beloved celtic.

A little bit of spin settles the real celtic fans who are livid ( Celtic dont really care about this cup...they have bigger fish to fry ) Aye Rite !

The Clock turns forward and Celtic are given a home tie against a born again Aberdeen. A game that is without any doubt their biggest game of the season out with the Champs League which they are no longer in.

They decide that because the demand for tickets to Scotlands greatest Breezeblock stadium is so great that they will shut down the whole top deck of the Glitterdome to try and create A BIT OF ATMOSPHERE. They get stuffed and the night before a rampant Rangers go in to the last 8 of the Scottish Cup ( nice to see that the people in chage of our national game had the foresight to hold the final at a neutral venue.

In A Nutshell. This season all that mr lemon can win is his 1 horse race. ( even with all of his millions ) Do any of us know any celtic supporters that could not have done the same as him. Again we hear of all the horrible and terrible things that poor Neil has to put up with in this putrid little country of ours. Is this ringing a bell with anyone out there. Saint Martin O'Neil ringing any bells.

Remember Big Eck. He was the guy who was manager of Rangers when Saint Martin was in charge of the septic. Big Eck's record head to head was better than his. However The Big Chap was never made a saint. Has anyone ever wondered why.............

While you ponder this question you may ask yourself why the legend that is Ally McCoist is being portrayed as a failure while winning his own 1 horse race, in a cup final and in the last 8 of the Scottish cup.

LET ME KNOW WHAT YOUR FEELINGS ARE ON THIS.

ummm well to be honest I'm not really sure what the point is you are trying to make?

would you be happier if they made us 8th favourite to win the cup?

But you are right: I remember around 1983 Dundee United and Aberdeen were doing quite well, hearts were too.

funny thing was back then in New Zealand the ONLY football on tv was on every sunday morning called "Big League Soccer" presented by Brian Moore.It was all english first div stuff. Around 1984 they started showing Scottish Football as well but recieved so many complaints from the viewers that they were forced to drop the Scottish Football from the show!

Mr Lennon?

when the fuck did we start extending that level of civility towards that cunt?

at 4.51pm today, uk time, apparently :lol:

I think the OP needs to edit his post and include the adjective "cunt" before every noun starting with "lennon"

fuck does that even make sense? was never any good at english at school

I read it all, I'm none the wiser. I've no idea what the point was??? I think that the op digressed from his original thoughts, and never went back again. Was it about Ally? It started that way, then went a bit fuzzy in the middle, then kinda ended that way, I think???

If Carlsberg made..... naw they wouldnae

Well Jim,

You make some interesting points - but I think the real test for Ally is yet to come.

Those doubting McCoist's ability do so because we are beating teams we would be expected to beat - we have a full time squad/the 2nd biggest wage bill in Scotland - which should therefore indicate the quality of our squad & furthermore - the best of training facilities. We are a considerable advantage to the teams we are currently ruling the roost over.

The acid test for Ally will be when we face like for like - a higher standard of competition.

As for Lennon - I think there is little doubt he has been a bit of a failure. Im sure the expectations of Celitc fans this season was for more than just a league title. Of course they wont notice that as they are far too busy obsessing over their greatest fear - a resurgent Rangers.

Perhaps if they stopped salivating & harping on about "Admin 2" ( and I do wish they would make their minds up - if we are a new club as they continually claim - how can it be admin 2 ? #braindead) they would actually see they have sold all their top players - are buying in bargain basement like Griffiths when they have no competition whatsoever for the Golden Goose which is the Champions League.

But of course they wont.

Ah! There the wage bill concept again.

YellwFang's wage bill is around 6-7 times greater than ours and of course much more again over the other clubs especially Morton and Aberdeen. AND he did not have to access free agents too. If McCoist is under pressure so should weetabix teeth!

I M H O We are still a long way off being 2nd Favs.

Being second favourites does not necessarily mean that the bookies think we are the second best team left. A lot of Bears will be backing Rangers and that will effect the odds.
