  1. Was that from one of the court cases? What was the original link to Elite? Was it thru Hummel or elsewhere?
  2. I think a lot of Clancy's actions and decisions need explained. There was a situation in yesterdays Liverpool game when Salah was away on the wing. The linesman waved his flag in a more frenetic manner, signalling foul play??? The ref booked the defender. Which fits with usual practise. It looked identical to one Bolingoli got away with on 29th. The CO is a joke. I'm glad the club is going after them. But again, its time and energy wasted fighting fires. This should've been killed with fire in the summer. I would like to know clubs options if foul play or interference can be proved on SFAs part? There must be a higher power interested in corruption.
  3. Gerrard spot on as usual. One point that's annoying is that so-so incidents in a game from over year ago are still getting oxygen. "The Parkhead club have also been angered after Ryan Christie was hit with a three match ban but no action was taken against Morelos over clashes with Christie, Scott Brown and Anthony Ralston in a game last season".
  4. Although not BBC - I'd thought that of Andy Walker on occasions this season. Almost like he'd been biting his tongue from the first whistle. Mind you, he never once managed the full game, and his performance for the Motherwell game was as bad and biased as anything i'd heard, including Sutton.
  5. It's only when you hear the difference between the two situations that the reality of the situation hits home. Their stance is mental. 4 years and counting now. It is EXACTLY the same drivers that are acting at FARE (which we can now prove). They are miles from levelling the field. And how can those 4+ years of prejudiced exclusion ever be repaid?
  6. Always good to hear him talk about Rangers and his experiences. No specific questions, but general views on our last 10 years and all the goings-on would be interesting. I guess also, opinions on the SFA and Hampden, pin-point problems and failings and give ideas going forward.
  7. Straight-out denial seems to be the defence of choice. Which is a bit strange as he's clearly singing along, at least for some of it. I'm assuming Tam is one of his pals.
  8. Any media coverage on this yet? It is the equivalent of fenian. Simple as that. The excuses they use for hun could easily be used for fenian, probably more so. Why would we really be singing against catholics with a team full of catholics? And yet they managed to get one categorised as racist in euro competition and cause us no end of concern, damage, money and time. It's maddening how bullshit and upside down it all is.
  9. I put the blog above together because things appear to have ground to a bit of halt on coverage and progress for the Grays and many others. This is what the facilitators, enablers and guilty want. Every day that passes makes it easier for the fighters to fold. To accept whatever meagre deal is being carved up for them. I guess what i'm saying is that if we want a public enquiry, then we the public need to force it. I don't claim to know what the best or right course of action is, but, write to the press, try and make sure it stays relevant and at least let them know there's a demand for it. That goes of every corner for the UK and beyond, every local newspaper, every column inch and web mention helps. Contact or write to your MSPs, at this time close to the election we at least have some leverage, tell them it could be a deciding factor in your vote. Get it a mention. Make it an issue. A full and open public enquiry into CSA in Scottish football. It takes 5 minutes, but it needs buy in and numbers. If we do nothing, then nothing is what we'll get.
  10. Does he ever get dug up about these things? I assume he just passes the blame to "a member of the public asking him to"?
  11. How much does a good grass pitch actually cost to install and maintain? I have no idea of the numbers. The clubs would then moan about loss of income etc. A well organised and well led governing body would make grass pitches mandatory, but could certainly centralise control and maintenance of pitches for those that need it.
  12. It's all good. It all brings minds back on to it. Maybe someone remembers something or maybe other names are brought forward. If it turns out that Ted, Dougal and Jack at the HMRC were the ones who called the shots on all things Rangers then it strengthens the case to have it looked at probably.
  13. He's fantastic. He's worth two players to us on the pitch. I hope we keep him as long as possible.
  14. Maybe one day, just maybe, they'll do us the service of having a Rangers supporter present and discuss our news. They've had a rare old time at our expense and they've got (are getting) away scot free.
  15. Do statute of limitations apply to these things? On a separate note i've seen a few tweets about behaviour of people within HMRC (leaks etc). Can't remember it ever making any news. Also, i'd like to have thought club would be aware of all of this stuff as soon as it'd happened.
  16. Great article Bluedell. One thing that's notable is the lack of coverage that Sport Direct get for their actions. I guess club are limited in what they can say and everything else has been said over the years, but i'd still expect it to get more airing. After all this is a football club being severely held back by open and deliberate badness from SD. I know fine well why our press don't mention it but can only imagine the coverage it would get if celtic were being disadvantaged. Another thought is on the investment and energy from the board in rebuilding the club. It's hypothetical but cant help think there must have been a different and easier way 8 years ago. Doesnt matter know of course. Maybe no-one else had a chance, and maybe the club and support are better and stronger for this anyway.
  17. I'd complained questioning the tone of their recent coverage on the rehash of the Neely story. Questioned inconsistencies and their innuendo and level of suggestion against third parties that had been missing in any other article on the subject. Here's their formulated response to the issue.
  18. Spooky lack of interest from our media. Totally off the radar, even.
  19. Was that one of the stadiums that would be used in the WC? It looked vast. Would be terrible atmosphere even if full.
  20. Good read that. And what most folk have known for a long time, one side spinning the life out of one story and keeping the lid firmly shut on the other. "All SFA member clubs (and this includes Rangers) should be ashamed of themselves." I cant help but agree with this line. Rangers have a duty to protect itself, write its own history and set the record straight on many subjects. We lost 4 years (minimum) no amount of dignified silence will buy that back.
  21. It's going to take someone fearless to push on with this. For all Tomkins good work am i right in saying that it hasn't been official raised in Holyrood yet? If anyone remembers John Lamonts well intended and correct input on the schooling system and the reaction it received, you can only imagine how hard they'll kick back on this.
