  1. Good morning Teddy Bears. My first post on the forum so go easy. I'm a ST holder in CR2. Another three points in the bag, improved our goal difference and another record achieved. We played some lovely stuff at times, a tad frustrated we didn't take score more goals considering the quality of the chances we created. Good solid performances from all of the players with Ryan Kent being the stand out player for me. Hopefully the players make the most of the break and those on international duty come home safe and sound considering what that entails these days.

  2. For anyone who cares, I've wasted 20 minutes of my life "scouting" Willem II. They are a club who are on the up. Promoted in 2014, they had a good first season in the Erevidisie before, as often happens, reverting to survival in their second season up and finishing 16th. From there they had two consecutive 13th place finishes. They improved on this again with a 10th place finish before finishing 5th last season, within touching distance of heavyweights PSV and Feyenoord. I don't know the story behind their gradual rise to the top table in Dutch football, but what is str

  3. Kemar Roofe fluffed a point-blank header, Brandon Barker made the wrong decision every time he was clear through and while Kent and Barisic did stuff to the physical and emotional equilibrium of a youthful Accies side - stuff which should really be reported to the authorities - neither of them scored. And we know they can score now. Yes, we won 2-0 and finished the game against ten men. Yes, we scored our goals before the game had really started. Hamilton had one real chance to score throughout and Rangers dominated the ball to such a degree that the Bears watching - either o

  4. Just in case it needs to be underlined how big a fuck up this is by them (and I don't really think it does)... Scotland are the highest ranked country to no longer have representation in the 20/21 Champions League (and the only country in the top 21 to be out). Hungary are the lowest ranked country still to have a team in CL qualifying. https://www.football-coefficient.eu/

  5. Some of you guys are completely missing the point here. Reverse the situation and say it was Lennon or Griffiths car torched. The papers, radio and BBC Scotland news online within hours would be screaming headlines of a sectarian attack, with narratives around like how they are always targeted without any evidence that this was anything to do with Rangers fans. There would be comments in Holyrood, debates surrounding how our country needs to be more inclusive, how everything is our fault. They don’t wait for weeks for a police investigation to conclude.

McCauley growls. “Look at me.” Waingro slowly raises his head just as everything falls out his arse and his lights are switched off. That, McCauley thinks, will teach him to wear a fu**ing Craig Whyte mask to a Scottish Cup tie (or something similar – I haven’t memorised the lines). Last time Dundee United were at Ibrox they brought the biggest support they’ve ever had in our place, split

  9. The Celtic team that lost here was, Gordon Janko, Sviatchenko, Ambrose, Tierney Brown, Bitton, Rogic Griffiths, Dembele, Christie This was almost a full strength side at the time. I would be wary of starting with players like Itten who haven't bedded in yet and players like Patterson and Bassey who aren't match fit. We have 5 subs, ring the changes once the game is in the bag.

Enjoy! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ I thought Saturday’s result, entirely jammy in how it came about, merely papered over the cracks of what has been a frankly disgraceful start to the season. The sight of Walter Smith by the side of the pitch only brought home how shamefully un-Rangers it all was. I mean I only got logged on in time for the coverage beginning at 2.30pm because I th

  13. PQ shut down football broadcasting last evening before 22.15hrs. Post match discussion, including everyone having their say, and interviewing both managers, lasted barely twenty-five minutes. The Scottish champions, carrying the Scottish standard into Europe's premier tournament have been papped out for the third year on the trot, in the qualifying rounds. Here's the thing, we will NOT see those goals again on the BBC, they will be confined to the file labeled, 'AEK,FC Cluj, and Ferencvaros'. Can any Gersnetter remember the AEK goals? I know someone will retrieve the goals from YouTube, the po

  15. Introduction Well, the much dreaded international break didn't disappoint. It was every bit as tediously boring and excruciatingly long as feared. Tragically, some would eventually succumb to madness as everyone from Paddy Roberts to Alan Power were "linked" with sensational switches to Ibrox as the prospect of even a crumb of a genuine rumour became less and less likely before the end of the break. Fortunately, there was a welcome relief from the deafening silence around Ibrox in the scintillating football played by Steve Clarke's dynamos as Israel were bravely thwarted at Hampden and Cz

  20. I wonder how poor Peter is feeling this morning? Weeks and months of SPFL lying, deceit (bordering on corruption) allowing Celtic a free passage to their *9th title in a row and the CL monies, only for *brave Neil and his multi-million pound squad to fuck it up (again). What does Peter do now? Hire investigators to research the Hungarians contracts, legibility to play, Covid test history to see if he can get them thrown out? Think of the wage bill, the co-efficient and finally the poor old disco-lights. Fully expect a statement from Peter today claiming

  24. I still think Docherty wasn't given a chance and we need his type of player in some games, last Sunday's being an example. I'd play Docherty over Hagi in that type of match all season long. I noticed Lewis MacLoed, once of this parish, joined Plymouth this week, he joins Ryan Hardie there. He's another that's had a terrible time with injuries.

  25. The Compliance Officer, Claire Whyte does what Peter tells her. Sellik TV’s, Michael Stewart says what Peter tells him. On Saturday at Ibrox, Dundee United’s, Ryan Edwards went into a challenge with Morelos, a straight leg above the knee, a flat boot impact leaving a puncture wound the size of a ten pence coin. The Referee, Kevin Clancy did not award a foul, only blew his whistle after Morelos collapsed in distress. The Colombian was stretchered off the pitch and Clancy re-started with a drop ball. After match comments by Gerrard inquired if Morelos had made a similar c

  26. As well as being a fantastic player he comes across as a pretty decent human being too. What an acheivement that is for any player, but somehow it seems more admirable when it's playing for a country for who simply qualifying for a tournament represents a major success. They've had some fantastic results during his time playing, and he's been integral to many of them. I think Davis might be the Rangers manager one day.

  27. "New, modern Scotland"? "New, modern Scotland" is a phrase we hear a lot of on BBC Scotland. The likes of DrStu' and Michael Stewart most frequent, they have a, 'new, modern Scotland' twenty-a-day habit. It's a large hand, small map concept, a transcendent state, a Brigadoon idyll remote from reality, or is it? These last few years, DrStu' has become quite expansive on not so much what we want, as what we don't want in new, modern Scotland. He opposed Gazza' entry into the Scottish football Hall of Fame because, "we don't want a player with domestic abuse issues in a new, modern S

  28. The interesting thing with this is the reference to “civil and criminal proceedings”. The criminal proceedings are vital such that the victims get the justice they so richly deserve against the perpetrators of such horrific, heinous crimes. But also interesting will be the civil proceedings. In civil proceedings invariably the plaintiff will chase the deepest pockets - so undoubtedly Gordon, and presumably the many other abuse victims, will be chasing Celtic. This could be absolutely catastrophic for Celtic financially which obviously helps us - however, by

The Scots Navy is epitomised by it's capital ship(boat), the PS Waverley. Para Handy has a firm hand on the tiller, Flora McDonald has fixed her oars into the rowlocks, and Daniel Defoe has tired of sticking his tongue in Man Friday's ear. An American with an Australian accent in overwhelming wode stands at the prow of the PS Waverley, his arm outstretched, pointing the way to Caledonian riches. Stuart Cosgrove's life long ambit

  30. just another DrStu' production. Time to remind Gersnetters, DrStu' s tertiary education took place in Hull. He graduated in Drama and English, then did his first Doctorate in Theatre. Yep, DrStu' is a big ham, fond of petty drama. Back in the day, Off the Ball regularly had members of the production staff telephoning the show. A script was provided and inevitably Rangers and Rangers supporters were portrayed as the bad guys in the morality play. Occasionally, it led to problems; we had Gordon the Jambo from Glasgow, because none of the production staff could be trusted with an Edin

  35. I was lucky enough to be given a copy of a new book titled The 50 Greatest Rangers Games by Martyn Ramsay. This is my review of it. We all have a favourite Rangers match, or at least a handful that standout above all the others, but I’m not sure I could rank my top 50 and certainly not in order of importance. So I approached this book with a mix of trepidation and excitement. In a recent edition of When Saturday Comes magazine, the writer, Taylor Parks, talks about the 3 ages of football supporting. The last age is nostalgia; always looking back, comparing everything

  37. Gerrard defended the player and the club with his comments quite skillfully- he had to be careful what he said in order to avoid be cited himself. If he had called out Clancy more directly, you can bet he would be up on a charge rather than the DU player. I thought his words were carefully chosen to get the message across about the hypocrisy and inconsistency of the decision and you only need to listen to the triggered reactions to see he got the point across perfectly. Whilst we might like bombastic statements and a PR war to be waged, I'm not sure that its any more

  40. MAN OF THE MATCH – GLEN KAMARA (FINLAND) The Rangers midfielder was comfortably the best player on the pitch in Dublin. Kamara was an island of composure in a frenetic and workmanlike midfield area, calmly breaking up the Irish attacks and setting Finland on the move with some precise and inventive passing. https://www.eurosport.co.uk/football/uefa-nations-league/2020-2021/republic-of-ireland-v-finland-live-nations-league-updates_sto7872507/story.shtml

  45. An excellent first 45mins there: only complaint is that we really should be 4 or 5 nil up and even that wouldn't have flattered us. Movement of the ball is a lot quicker but, crucially, the movement of the players is a lot better. For example, Barker hasn't looked as dangerous on the ball but it's him and Hagi creating the space for Kent and the full backs. Roofe also doing his part creatively in deeper areas which is where Morelos does struggle a wee bit. Let's hope we keep it tight after the break and start taking these chances our play merits.

  46. Lots of merited criticism for the team and manager last week so they deserve the plaudits today after a patient, well-worked examination of Killie to run out comfortable 2-0 winners today. Once again the defence was excellent but the difference between Livi and Killie was the performance of the attacking players with Barker and Kent a constant threat in behind Roofe who scored a fine debut goal after hitting the post just a few moments before that,
