  1. Our previous black kits were very smart. 2010-11 and 2012-13.
  2. Man, I never thought I'd be so excited over a tie against Luxembourg opposition. Six long, shitty years.
  3. I've just seen a picture of the Dundee Utd v Falkirk play-off semi on the BBC website. Swathes of empty seats. I know Dundee Utd aren't a big club, but what's that all about?
  4. It's good that McInnes isn't disappointed at not getting the Ibrox gig.
  5. Painful viewing. The SNP have dropped the ball here. All they had to do was play the long game. In just 12 months they've managed to rile vast swathes of the electorate.
  6. They could lose 10. The uniting of the anti-SNP vote behind the Conservatives is not good news for Sturgeon. I'm actually not sure Indyref2 is going to happen now.
  7. Nobody on this planet will ever convince me that Lionel Messi is a more complete player than Zinedine Zidane. Capable of better moments, absolutely, and often. But, no.
  8. "Messi is the best player this world has ever seen by miles." Messi is superb. But I'm not having that.
  9. The state we're in, and Celtic are still at this.
  10. Kenny Miller needs a new contract, then Caixinha can set about rebuilding a pretty tired Rangers squad.
  11. Cricketer, philosopher, 1st class honours degree. I require further evidence this gentleman was a footballer.
  12. No no, you're wrong, Warburton says we should be grateful.
  13. Well, that's about our level against them. We're basically 2-0 behind them in the big picture. Or in alternative parlance, £40 million. You'll hear no complaint against Dave King from me. He's a Rangers man like all of us on here. But let's be honest, without the requisite investment in playing staff, we are basically another Hearts. Tom English made a pertinent point on the wireless today. He was talking about how when Old Firm fixtures come round, people still assume that Rangers should be expecting to match Celtic. Yes, maybe in 2011, but look at us and them top to bottom and we're
  14. Kicked into touch by the guy who ran the line at Hampden today, incidentally. Douglas Ross.
  15. I was discussing France over dinner tonight (being the mad middle-class bastard that I am). I have to say I really feel for the French. One of the truly great nations of the world, with a people with a proud history who continue to contribute massively to both the cultural and scientific development of the planet. And let's not forget a long-standing and steadfast ally of the British in good, bad, and very bad times. This is a country which should be a powerhouse along German lines. Yet decades of complacent politics, a static economy, rising unemployment, ill-thought out immigra
  16. Oh, and for any Moray-based Gersnetters, you lucky bastards getting to dump Angus Robertson out! Scotland's 'Portillo moment' - you heard it here first
  17. After watching that today, I have to say I'm very impressed with Spurs. Chelsea can't afford more slip-ups in the run-in.
  18. "It was however an incredible initiation for this eleven year old in 1986" Well I never. For some reason I had you down as about 60
  19. Has anyone ever read any of the Icelandic sagas?
  20. In general I am not a fan of tactical voting, for the reasons SBS gives, but I had begun to consider it to keep the SNP out. As it happens however, in my constituency my party of choice is best placed to unseat the Nats.
  21. It would be interesting to get an early indication of where the esteemed patrons of Gersnet currently stand.
  22. Hibs going up will be good for the 'journos', they won't have to write about football which I know they hate doing.
  23. Barca might have pulled a big deficit back against a French mob, but it isn't happening against Juve. As a child of the 80s/90s, I'd love to see a resurgence of Italian football. Sadly in recent years only Juve have threatened. Aren't they on about six titles in a row this season?
  24. Couldn't agree more. This season will be their third consecutive second-place finish, but as you say, well, we've been away. I too get the distinct impression that three years of being 'best of the rest' has given them some bizarre sense of entitlement, that they are 'back' and 'here to stay'. Don't believe it for a second. I'll make a prediction here and now that as we continue on our steady upward trajectory next season, there will be rumblings of discontent amongst the sheep. I hope for their sake they have enjoyed the last few years, because the days of easy trophies and league-pl
