  1. I'd willingly swap Turkey for Sweden and Finland.
  2. Football in Scotland is just a reflection of the people who run the game. It could be so much better than it is.
  3. Biden is just a pawn. The real "idiots" are the people who vote for these so-called leaders. It's what happens when you give people suffrage in the pretence of democracy and then harvest their opinion in much the same way we farm sheep and cattle. There's no other explanation that could put Biden in the White House.
  4. I’d call it unprincipled cowardice and folding before the bully.
  5. That's certainly the narrative that's being pushed hard by Russia and its apologists. The reality is quite different of course but there's always an attentive audience for self-loathing propaganda.
  6. Can't say the absence of a beam back facility will be a major inconvenience for me. If I had a ticket I'd spend all next week in Spain but I doubt if I'd make a 350 mile round trip to watch a televised game at Ibrox that I could see at home or in the local pub.
  7. So many questions. Perhaps you think of me as your teacher?
  8. I don’t think anyone should underestimate the magnitude of the decision being taken by Sweden and Finland, or the genuine threat they feel from an aggressive and unstable Russia. These countries didn’t easily choose to give up their neutrality, they’re doing so because they want to preserve their way of life. Swedes I speak with believe the beast from the east is out of control and determined to bring war to Europe
  9. If you were half as smart as you think you are, you’d be twice as smart as you appear to be. Tip: plough your own furrow, don’t be someone else’s mouthpiece.
  10. Russia has the moral authority of acquired victimhood and a shed load of nukes to threaten its neighbours, which is quite pathetic when you think about it.
  11. “For thirty years, Germans lectured Ukrainians about fascism,” the American historian Timothy Snyder tweeted in late April. “When fascism actually arrived, Germans funded it, and Ukrainians died fighting it.”
  12. For me it was a choice between Goldson and Wright. Opted for Connor Goldson, who I thought was quite imperious in defence and attack. We're going to miss this guy more than we know.
  13. I think the main reason Russia isn't about to invade Finland is that it would likely get its arse skelped. Russia has nukes and not a great deal else to threaten anyone with. NATO is happy to see Russia expend its resources for as long as its failing economy can raise a fist.
  14. I know these things can be confusing but it was actually Russia that expanded its territory by invading Ukraine .... just in case you thought it was NATO bombing schools and hospitals.
  15. I wouldn't have such a problem with that if the freeloading beggars didn't also demand and receive healthcare, education, welfare, transport and all the other aspects of UK life that are now stretched thinner than a drumskin. Maybe they could find better employment in Putin's empire, I hear his army is recruiting.
  16. Of course we can. We just won’t
  17. I hope one of you lucky bastards will be taking it upon themselves to make sure this forum receives frequent updates from the Seville odyssey
  18. I'll never understand why people moan about the price of Rangers' merchandise. Absolutely no one is forcing anyone to buy it. If you think it's too expensive then don't buy it. It really is that simple. But why spread negativity about something that is vital to the club and that many people are so obviously wiling to pay for? One very good reason for having a third strip is that a great many people are happy to buy it.
  19. Well I think that is just superb ....... it will sell well, irritate the goons and it isn't violet.
  20. It's ridiculous in this day and age, with so many huge modern stadiums across Europe, that UEFA should choose to hold a final in such a small venue. In fact, it's hard not to believe these decisions are made for reasons wholly removed from football.
