  1. Agreed WBD - disappointing to see our "Iron curtain" defence was more curtains than iron - Young, Shaw & Woodburn they most certainly are not.
  2. The war against racism in Scotland has suffered a considerable setback in recent times, despite the multitude of diversity workshops being run regularly in our country. Such setbacks have not come courtesy of a group of marauding right wing thugs embarrassing our nation but an ignorant media displaying a complete lack of self-awareness and compliance with the material and training provided in the aforementioned diversity workshops. Our national broadcaster, BBC Scotland, lowered the crossbar considerably, providing a platform for allegations that a victim’s claim of racial abuse wa
  3. No theyve not but Docherty going out on loan and being voted player of the season at Shrewsbury, the loan club, kind of reinforces the question what they have to do to get ahead of the pecking order when some are clearly underperforming. ? Im surpised at SG given his previous comments in interviews about getting the shirt and ensuring performances warrant a plyer holding onto it.
  4. How can the manager be so "shocked" after the performances against Stranraer & St Mirren ? Kris Boyd touched on the problem post match which he mentioned SG's favoured 13/14 players - but what about when they are not cutting it ? Do they keep the jersey week after week despite poor perfomances ? What kind of motivation is that ? Jones & Docherty must be wondering what they have to do to get game when the failings from the game previously are ahead of them on the team sheet. Did anyone honestly expect Ojo to turn things around for us when he came on
  5. Even with our most consistent player, Ryan Jack having an off day by his own high standards we bossed them in their own gaffe. Davis and Aribo outstanding thoughout - I think Arfield better get used to the bench given the the performances of our midfield today. Borna continues to impress to a standard which is mind boggling - not only defensively but his clinical and lethal use of the ball in attacking positions. I suspect the New Oxford Dictionary will have a photo of Katic under the word desire.
  6. Update Maybe getting there Bruce https://planetradio.co.uk/clyde/sport/football-news/video-ref-call-from-rangers-boss/
  7. I agree Bruce, their various histrionics over the years have created this laxk of balance, resulting in dubious decisions falling their way with alarming regularity. Only last week we are told Beaton apologised to SG for getting a penalty call wrong - I do think someone should be calling out this regular occurence of officials seemingly terrified to officiate if the decision favours Rangers Two critical decisions determined the destination of the trophy yesterday - one allowing a goal which re-runs show 3 Celtic players clearly offside the other showing a goalkeeper cl
  8. Our inability to keep a clean sheet is proving to be something of an achilees heel for this team. Plenty of warnings throughout the season with some calamitous defending leading to the loss of unnecessary goals - game against Hamilton was the prime example. You have to wonder about the manager's wisdom/lack of experience chopping & changing our CH pairing mid season (Again)
  9. Its one thing saying players are aware of the standards and expectations at Rangers but in Davis & Greegsy you have two guys who have actually lived and thrived on that expectation. The embodiment of that in the dressing room is no bad thing.
  10. Great to see Ryan Jack having a dig rom the edge of the box which proved particularly fruitful. Hope this becomes a regular part of his (and others) game.
  11. You know Gaffer, couple of weeks ago I got some angry responses from Bears for pointing out on Twitter that Tav's defensive inadequacy had cost us yer another goal Im temptedd to escalate inadequacy to liability such is the frequency of these howlers. I think his tendency to make crtical faux pas has given the manager a real dilemma to ponder
  12. A delightful day all in all. Delighted to see Big George get a start & look so commanding. Delighted we clocked up another clean sheet - a real thing for me 🧐 Delighted for Defoe & his incredible hatrick. Delighted for Borna, another majestic performance capped of by yet another majestic free kick. Delighted to be sitting top of the league.
  13. So disappointing Frankie, having appearing to solved the problem on the left side of defence. we now appear to have a new problem on the right side. Tired of hearing about Tav's goals & assist count - his primary role is to defend.
  14. Superb performance today with so many stand outs, Borna continues to impress and we chalk up another clean sheet - very happy with that. David outstanding followed closely by Stewart, the latter I think would improve given more game time - his vision & link up play was a joy to watch
  15. Id suggest Pete, very time one of those banned songs gets an airing, anywhere, it provides FARE an opportunity to come after us under the umbrella of "Intelligence led Policing". We have the uncanny knack of making that target bigger for them.
  16. Thats a good find Iain & shows what we are up against. Also saw a screenshot on twitter of Powar glorifying a Palenstine flag display at Parkhead. Given UEFA's stance on no political displays at football, you really have to wonder how a man whose organisation acts as an agent obo of UEFA in upholding their artcles, can openly celebrate the breaching of the articles in question.
  17. Im not sure I can agree with that Pete - the original aim was to protect club & defend the support. Being subjected to punishment courtesy of a report from an organisation with a very questionable history & conduct, reporting to a extremely totalitarian Football Authority whose Articles would give most legislators a field day, ticks my boxes in terms of defending the support. That said I do think the drive & initiative needs to come from within the club itself - I doubt, as histoty has shown, that it wil stop with TBB.
  18. Absolutely Bill, Ive followed much of this discussion on Twitter & Im concerned at some of the views being expressed, as I believe if some of the strategies of sing it "loud & proud" were to come to fruition that would spell disaster for the club. You dont have to be defence counsel to drive a wedge of reasonable doubt into this debate, in fact some of the evidence has already been presented in this thread. I saw the word "Appeasment" being used on twitter - its not appeasement to box clever in a ring where an unjust narrative, devoid of balance & fairness has already
  19. Stunnnin result - Jordan Jones gave us a directness which I feel has been missing in the final third. Just need to tighten up those defensive lapses, I think havin regular back 4 woul go soe way to facilitating this. Given the gleaming praise Flanno recived from the manager he may well have staked his claim for the shirt.
  20. No bud, its a bit more difficult to find out since it became Police Scotland. I wouldnt expect much more from him - given that their primary function at footbll matches is public safety, and any admission that there was a crush is akin to an admission of failure to fulfill that function. Be interesting to hear the match comanders recommendindations on the ticketing procedures at the Chadwick.
  21. I retweeted the many various testimonies and pictures from bears outside the ground, some of them were clearly terrified by what transpired. Tom English & Michael Stewart, neither of whom witnessed it, have sought to dismiss this incident without any evidence - reckless, rancid and worhty of ridicule. The Club really needs to step up - Rangers SLO was present & will have reported back to them, also Club 1872 have numerous testimonies which usurp the sugestion there was no crush. silence is not an option Rangers.
  22. Like deja vu from last season Frankie, inabiliy to keep a clean sheet and lacking inspiration in the final 3rd time, sorry to sound negtive folks, but thats the way I saw it.
  23. I think Bill, that says more about the failings at the rancid BBC tha anythig else. Im hoping the whole organisatio is o borrowed time.
  24. Cheers bud, an enjoyable experience
