We’ll be lucky to still be part of Britain never mind part of a British League

Cunts on here are mental man. We'd be competing for the title down there because, basically, we're Rangers and that's all there is to it.  We've got a 'different support' so of course we'll be fi

Be some laugh phoning work from Southampton away on a Sunday night telling them I’ll no be back to Wednesday cause am stopping off at Newcastle for the Tuesday away game on the way back up.

I've always said if we were in the epl and had access to the same TV money then we would be up there competing at the top. With our stadium and fanbase we would bring a lot more to this BPL than some of the clubs to have been in the EPL over the years.

I don’t agree with that, I would say it gives us a fighting chance but there is no guarantee, look at Leeds, Newcastle, Man City, Aston Villa etc are we really bigger than them?

I thinks it’s gone beyond that recently mate, even a billion over a few years doesn’t guarantee success, that’s astonishing.

I'd beg to.differ but there yae go 

I think we over estimate our fan base, a lot of it has to do with going back 50 years when we had a global fan base due Scottish immigration to the new world. Most of that has sadly gone. Yes we have a fantastic support but I don’t think it’s what some suggest it is.

The emotion is far less in the stands around English stadiums.

That sounds fucking horrific! At least up here every bastard opponent we face hates our guts and wants us to get beat and battered. 

Fuck it being like a friendly with us all going tonto and opposition videoing is etc.

I used to go to Highbury years ago when i worked in London. It was like going to the theatre compared to Ibrox.

Plenty of teams in England have as good a fan base as ours, it’s arrogance to think otherwise 

Liverpool and Man United. That’s it. The rest of them don’t come near us. Bizarre claim to say “plenty” do.

Not read through the thread or that but it’s a massive no for me, in all honesty I hate what English football has became. It’s a tourist league, clubs more interested in the day trip fans than anything. Not saying our club is perfect but far better than down there. Would hate to see Rangers become another tourist club which no doubt it would being in the same league as them. Can say all you want about the quality up here but at least it’s real, it lacks money but still has the passion.

There are more than 20 Rangers Supporters Clubs in Canada mate. Think the US has a dozen, maybe more. Australia? South Africa? Not sure where else.

Is that not the point in wanting to be a part of the EPL though?  to see if we're really good enough to compete not only with the teams mentioned but against all the teams in the league or are we just happy to be a big fish in a small pond, if this opportunity were to present itself I'd love to see us make the attempt at it, I'd love to watch us compete in a league where most teams at least attempt to win a match as opposed to the shite we're forced to endure in Scotland, honestly if it wasn't The Rangers playing I wouldn't bother my arse turning on the telly but I'm certain I would be a lot more happy to be entertained by a more open game more often than not.

As for the size of support other teams may or may not have, who cares about the others, the merchandise money generated  by our fans globally would be greater than the majority down there, that along with the money that the EPL generates would help us compete.

Couldn’t Really care how big our world wide fanbase is compared to others. Most our support no matter where they are in the world are genuine and actually have a love and understanding of Rangers values , history and tradition .
 

Give me that any day over Asians or Americans picking us for the colour of our strip or becuase their favourite player happens to play for us .

This, I could never imagine The Rangers supporters ever becoming a "tourist" support.

It's not always about how much you spend,it's how you spend it. Look at Leicester when they won the league, even Liverpool hadn't spent as much as others when they won the league albeit they weren't exactly put together on a shoestring

I remember an image Neville shared of Liverpool fans taking photos of Mourinho in the front row. Thats a sad reflection on where it's going down there.

There's been worse mate, I remember watching Man United v Spurs at Old Trafford a few years ago and I'm sure Lucas Moura scored a hat-trick and Man United fans were getting selfies with him :ang:.

Give me our game every day of the week, like that time Stuart Armstrong went to get the ball of a Hearts fan at Tynecastle, the Hearts fan waited till Armstrong put his hands out to get the ball passed and the Hearts fan fucked it away and gave him the finger, that's real passion.

For reference :megaanguish:
