  1. Further to OP, after 19 games we are actually 12 points better off than at the same point in 18/19 (games played rather than time of year) and our points tally after playing every other team for the first time this season is 9 points better than last season. We are 3 games from playing each other team twice, at that point last year we had gained 42 points, so if we win our games against Ross Co, St Johnstone and St Mirren we will be 17 points improved.
  2. Denial of something that didn't happen is not ridiculous, it's superfluous No charges relating to chanting, therefor as far as UEFA are concerned nothing happened, I’m aware of nothing from FARE so assume they heard nothing. In fact the only sources who seems determined to highlight this are the usual suspects in the gutter media and some forum contributors. For the record I neither condone nor condemn anything I have not personally been involved with or witnessed, nevertheless I do absolutely respect your right to comment on anything and everything you wish. However, I sometimes wonder if the overall interests of Rangers are best served by open forum contributors unequivocally confirming incidents that the club have not been cited for by the governing bodies. Ask yourself this, in this particular case and time who are doing the most damage to our club? A few over exuberant travelling fans who may or may not have added a few words to a Neil Diamond song or those who continue to feed the HNC accredited trolls masquerading as journalist in Scotland who scavenge social media for unverified third party opinions.
  3. I think, Rangers fans in the away section heard what they heard. Folks like me listening to broadcast audio shouldn't comment.
  4. I wasn't at the game, so cannot possibly comment on what was or wasn't sung in Rotterdam. That can only be done by those at the game in the away section. I do sometimes worry though that some folks might hear what they want to hear.
  5. I would imagine it would certainly attract new members from the walking football community looking to get somebody else to pay for their leisure pursuits.
  6. Dream fund aside, walking football ? really? members funds being used to subsidise other folks hobbies? I'm not a member so don't have a say and my opinion is irrelevant but funding this sort of thing does absolutely nothing to incentivise me to become a C1872 participant.

  8. no consideration for nostalgia? You used to go there to see Sidney Devine back in the day, did you not?

  10. Just realised Gersnet censors the word automatically - gobsmacked - I'm out
  11. This is very much a head v heart issue for me. Head says we lost the battle for free use of the word ****** years ago (and I refuse to self-censor that word since they have taken to publically using it to characterise themselves) and that appears to be the offending term at issue whether it be in TBB or Super Rangers. The regulatory authorities at every level have been coerced to believe it is derogatory to Roman Catholics despite the historical evidence to the contrary. So be it. Nobody wants to be continually sanctioned by UEFA and I fully support any measure that helps to eliminate any behaviour that endangers our participation. The club have taken action to discipline some of the offenders, and it is only some, to say BF1 are the only ones to sing “offensively” is clearly drivel, they may be the worst offenders and by sitting collectively are easily identified as a single entity and targeted for punishment but they are not guilty in isolation. But was this the correct path to take? Is this the route Separate Entity FC would have taken? No danger, they would have closed a section up in the Gods, had some serious talks with TGBB and thrown them a few bones in return for a promise of good behaviour for a few weeks. Nevertheless my head says the UB know they have been doing wrong and deserve sanction, but I also believe the club have tackled the issue very clumsily, they should have been making the seriousness of the situation clear to UB some time ago and made the repercussions crystal clear to everyone in that section, then perhaps, we wouldn’t be where we are now. What does my heart say though? Well to be honest is despairs at the tone of some of the comments in this thread, you would almost get the impression that some of the posters on here are only too happy to turn on their own. Good grief we even have some bringing the UVF into this, that’s dangerous territory and something I would expect more from the likes of Speirs than a Rangers supporter, my Great Uncle was in the UVF and was killed at Ypres in 1917, the day his memory becomes taboo will be when hell freezes over. The UB are no angels but without them our match day experience would be much the poorer, sure if you sit near them I’m sure the constant noise could become tedious, but without them Ibrox becomes a library. My heart has some sympathy for the UB, they have done more for the atmosphere at Ibrox in recent years than anyone, and that includes not just the songs but also the displays which they raised funds for themselves and we all enjoyed. They are young lads full of passion for goodness sake, has everyone forgotten what they were like at that age? They need educated not kicked in the balls from fellow bears. IMO the club have, rightly or wrongly, maybe just given them the kick up the backside they need to wise up and that’s enough for me, I won’t be jumping on the sanctimonious bandwagon to berate fellow Rangers fans on a public platform.
  12. Fare, reports are available online, you don't need to be ITK to access them. Rangers were reported by them 3 times in 2018, twice in Europe and the December game against separate entity fc.
  13. And that's why George Young was called Corky
