I'd never describe Rangers FC as "rancid".

Each to their own. Your type and that opinion is eternal on this forum. Hence why I don't frequent this board much anymore.

Good, we don't miss your crying fits when someone critisies the football team.

I'd be frankly embarrassed if a full time top flight quality side did not score more than anyone else in part time divisions against painters and welders.

So you have no reason to be embarrassed then...

ALLY McCOIST has launched a staunch defence of his Rangers team’s performances and insists occasional dips in their displays are part of the process in moving up the leagues.

The Light Blues attracted criticism for the way they went about their business in what the manager feels was a tired show as East Fife were beaten 1-0 on Saturday.

But he’s optimistic there will be a noticeable improvement three days from now and is adamant he’s content with the direction his men are heading in overall.

McCoist has pointed to the fact no team in British senior league football has scored as many as his own.

And while he knows some matches could have been better, he is willing to cut the squad more slack than he feels others are.

McCoist has also hinted there’s specific negative focus on the way Rangers play compared to other teams, touching on the national team’s 1-0 victory in Poland this week as an example.

He said: “It was a great result for Scotland last night but would it be the case one or two people would have been disappointed with the performance?

“The last time I’d looked, we’d scored more goals than any team in Britain in the league. It goes with the territory (that performance levels might dip).

“We can handle that. It’s our job to do the best we can and I think our results, at this moment in time, have been fine.

“We are scoring goals, our shutout record is up there with anything this year and the next thing we can move on to is our level of performance.

“Of course we want to play better in games. We’d love to play absolutely fantastic football all the time.

“But going back up the leagues is a slow process and you’re going to get games where you don’t play to your full potential.

“With the greatest of respect to everybody, we do want to play as well as we can all the time but we’re reasonably happy with where we are and what we’re doing at the moment.”

Well crowing about things like the OP is embarrassing.

Talking about it like it's a great achievement :lol:

If we done it with the same resources and squads as those around us then yes it would be....this is like a Heavyweight Championship boxer boasting about knocking out amateur kids coming through the ranks.

Who's "crowing"? It's just a fact, and one you seem to be greeting about.

By August 2004, Napoli was declared bankrupt with debts[clarification needed] estimated up to €70 million.[33] To secure football in the city, film producer Aurelio De Laurentiis refounded the club under the name Napoli Soccer,[4] as they were not allowed to use their old name.FIGC placed Napoli in Serie C1, where they missed out on promotion after losing 2–1 in play-offs to local rivalsAvellino in 2004–05 Serie C1.[1]

Despite the fact that Napoli were playing in such a low division, they retained higher average attendances than most of the Serie A clubs, breaking the Serie C attendance record with 51,000 at one game.[34] The following season, they secured promotion to Serie B and De Laurentiis bought back the club's history, restoring its name to Società Sportiva Calcio Napoli in May 2006.[1] After just one season back in Serie B, they were promoted on the final day, along with fellow sleeping giants Genoa

Poland are a superior team to Scotland and at the end of the euro campaign it will be there to see.

Rangers are superior to any of these lower league teams amd are quite frankly more than disappointing in performance. Infact if these teams had decent finishers we'd drop alot of points. We get outplayed by inferior teams with much less resources and its not good enough
