***The Official Trophy Day Celebrations Thread***


Recommended Posts

I'm very ticked off with the demonisation of our support in general.
Your neighbour kicks your dog every day for nine years, and it eventually bites back.
Regardless of whether the outcome is proportionate, you have to expect a reaction.
Some of the folk who attach themselves to our club need a lesson in humility and manners.
But if our neighbours had managed to win the title, the end game would have been the same.
Like their misbehaviour over the last 12 months, Gallowgate, Parkhead, but on a bigger scale.
The 'authorities' and the media act as though the outcome was a surprise.
These folks are unwilling and incapable of addressing deep-rooted societal problems.
They'll ignore similar acts at public parks, festivals, and Sauchiehall Street every weekend.
Because it's easier to find a convenient scapegoat, and marginalise a large section of society.
Rather than do anything that may upset their support.
Worrying times.

That's a lot of sentences without a paragraph mate.

The average salary for a street cleaner in the UK is £17,500 (ie  £9.61 per hour for a 35 hour week). So, £58k would equate to 83 street cleaners on treble time doing 24 hours shifts.

In other words, they’re making it up.

 

That certainly puts it in context I would say. :thumbsup:

Bill for square repairs now at £60k and rising,80 cleansing workers took 24 hours to clean up the mess,strange this when Palestinian crew were in the square on the Sunday and no sign of workers or damage. 

I walked through George square at 5pm the next day it had been cleaned up bar one broken bottle i’d seen, be funny as fuck if this was the straw that broke the camels back and they got investigated for misappropriation of funds finally

The square has been a fucking eyesore for years now and the continual use of it for all sorts of commercial events has fucked it up long before Rangers fans went near the shitheap.

Has anyone on MyGers heard about the trophy day this Monday? Or have I just been patched?

Nothing for anyone?

Why it has to be one stupid day only I have no idea. They have the whole fucking summer to run days and let everyone get a wee shot and a pic with the trophy. Guaranteed money maker.

Thousands of applicants for dozens of places is what I've read on FF...

Ridiculous. All they need is the trophy on a wee stand in the shop and a line of people to get their photo taken with it for a tenner a pop if you want the print!

I was just at the trophy day at the Doubletree Hilton in Glasgow (and not the actual Hilton that the ticket told me it was, so turned up at the wrong hotel and had to run up the town).

The trophy looked fucking stunning in person, a right big bastard too. 

We also met Derek Johnstone and I asked him if “he had been at it all week” to which he said “excuse me?!” :lol:
