  1. Also, wanted to make a point about our players' fitness. Last night Livi (understandably to a degree) were done after 60-70mins. They couldn't maintain their press and retreated into a lower block. Meanwhile, we still had both full backs galloping up and down the flanks whilst it was Kamara and Davis that were in the box to help us score. Given the number of games we've played this season (44 since August 1st last year so an average of 7 games a month) and the CV19 factor, the conditioning and fitness performance of our squad really is fantastic. We hear a

  2. This was always going to happen so enjoy the scenes instead of getting upset about it. It's not ideal and I can understand why folk might be annoyed but if I were 20 years old and lived in Glasgow, I'd be there too so I'm not going to be a hypocrite about it. It's like saying we shouldn't have ran on the pitch at Pittodrie 35 years ago. Let's get back into the real world.

  4. Continuity? If you look through these pages, you'll read examples of a lack of continuity at BBC Scotland. Let's take a game at Pittodrie on a Wednesday evening nearly three years past. Aberdeen were awarded a penalty after a Morelos challenge/clearance. On BBC Radio Scotland's Sportsound, the Host, Richard Gordon, the Commentator, Liam McLeod, and the added colour, Wullie Miller; all in no doubt, a clear penalty. Sky TV showing the game live were also in no doubt, never a penalty. Just before Midnight, Sportscene aired and the panel including James McFadden agreed with Sky. Embar

  8. Ten years they've laughed at us and mocked us. Understandable, given we're the most successful club in football. However, some of the actions, comments and behaviour of many we might expect better of have demonstrated how much we are hated and how much standards in Scotland have fallen (denigrating opponents is more fulfilling than being successful, apparently). In the space of twelve months, we have gone from crisis to a team on the verge of winning a title we thought we might never hold again (and having a terrific run in Europe). The players, management and custodians of Ra

  12. I see a great favourite of many of the journalists who often feature in this thread made the news this weekend and lost his job today. Roy Greenslade, one time Daily Mirror editor, Sun journalist, Guardian columnist and, until today, Professor of Journalism at City University of London was himself the subject of an article yesterday. The Sunday Times reported about Essex boy Greenslade's unwavering support for the Provisional IRA and INLA at the weekend. This of course came as news to absolutely no one who has even the slightest interest in these things. He wrote a column for the

  14. Of course not directly but breaking the law is breaking the law. And winning a title after many years is winning a title after many years. CV19 is a horrible, horrible thing. People have died and lives have been ruined. No-one is downplaying that and I absolutely agree that congregating in hundreds isn't something of praise. However, we both know it was going to happen so there's absolutely no reason to be upset. Relax and enjoy these moments Smile. Laugh. Even cry. Just don't be angry as we have enough to be stressed about by also adding a few footballs fans wh

  16. I've got mixed feelings about it, I'd be a liar if I didn't say that I got a bit emotional watching the video of Gerrard arriving at Ibrox, I closed the kitchen door so the missus wouldn't see me! Football has been one solid factor that has carried me through this fucking pandemic, seeing those scenes kind of reminds you what life was like.

  17. I know his auld man, played against him many times in the juniors and he is a Rangers fan, and so is Kenny, can't explain why he went to the dark side for a while???, however regardless what anyone thinks of him he always gave his all and was a good player for Rangers.

  18. Kamara is incredibly talented. There are times he looks like he needs a cold shower to wake him up and times he needs to back himself in more forward areas but, in general, he's been a fantastic signing and has to be on the radar of the very biggest teams.

  19. Yeah, I like the look of Wright. He fits into the system well and is always keen to get himself and/or the ball into dangerous areas. Think the manager is using him wisely as well by gradually introducing him into the team. Hopefully we'll see more of him before the end of the season as the schedule ramps up again.

  21. Watching the highlights of last night's match back on RTV and worth nothing the game was stopped for around 90secs when Reilly went off injured, yet there was only 64secs of stoppage time before Beaton blew for HT despite a crude foul on Aribo at the edge of the box (which I don't think he even gave). Add in at least two fairly clear penalties denied by Beaton, then I don't blame the manager for showing his frustration during and after the game. It's not always easy for the officials but fair time-keeping is a basic principle and the Itten claim was as clear as they get.

  22. What a result that is! Yes, we didn't play well but we were by far the better team and only poor finishing/decision-making/refereeing stopped us winning more comfortably. Livi offered next to nothing but well done to the defence who stood firm to the long ball/throw. Delighted for Alfie to be the match-winner: a tap in but the quality of the build up can't be denied with Kamara and Davis being the surprising assists. Four points left. Just four to go!

  24. Cosy Corner. Tonight's Sportsound on BBC Radio Scotland is the very epitome of what we(Rangers supporters) have come to expect. Craig Levein, Jock Brown, Darryl Broadfoot, and John Collins joined the Host for a discussion on ra Sellik's future direction. This was the entire shooting match, new Manager, Director of Football, new Chief Executive, new players, ........ etc. The past was discussed too, well as far back as, "Fergus". Obviously, with both Collins and Brown on the show, thirty years of ra Sellik is up for discussion. The whole cast talked of Fergus, Wim, Ronni

  26. I have deliberately avoided tempting fate and as an older bear have waited patiently until I can say we are the champions, today after the game I finally said it to my Mrs, my boys and my extended family, we have waited so long and went from the lowest league with no money to rightful champions again, never in my time have I ever felt as proud and happy to see us back where we belong

And talking of Greenslade's ethics, Giles Coren observes in today's Times: I was very impressed by the former Daily Mirror editor Roy Greenslade’s revelation in The Sunday Times this weekend that he had been a big fan of the Provisional IRA and a supporter of armed struggle throughout a 35-year career in journalism, while pretending not to be...........

  40. Roy Greenslade deserves his own thread, it should run and run. As JohnMc has alluded, Greenslade intervened when Jum Spence and his wife, out for an evening stroll, had a Rangers supporter shout abuse at them from across the road. Jum was traumatised, and reported the incident to the Police. Several years later, we can only assume inquiries are continuing? Greenslade empathising with Jum and complaining bitterly about consequences faced because of outspoken support for perceived unpopular causes is an outrage. Born and bred in Dagenham with no connection to Ireland, he
