  1. When we win the league this year, (and let's face it, not doing so now would quite possibly be the biggest shambles in our club's history), do we go straight into a CL group or do we have the minefield of qualifiers?
  2. Today Rangers required just nine men to win a cup final. An unbelievable achievement; to secure victory whilst at a two man disadvantage. This current Rangers team are jam packed of that most inspiring of qualities; character. Walter Smith�s team epitomise this attribute with a never say die attitude. Our foes from the East End have attempted to tarnish our achievements this season as they see us marching to another league title to keep the League Cup company in the trophy room this summer. Tony Mowbray�s side have not been good enough to keep up with our relentless accumulat
  3. Another excellent bit of thought-provoking prose from Andy... http://www.gersnetonline.co.uk/2010/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=233:orwell-would-be-a-rangers-man&catid=1:articles&Itemid=67 Eric Blair = Teddy Bear! Simple when you think about it. Should you need further proof, however, read on. Writing in the magazine Tribune, in an article called 'The Sporting Spirit', the great English essayist pondered the 1945 tour of the UK by Moscow Dynamo. That tour included, of course, a game against The Rangers at Ibrox. Orwell mentions that game, not positiv
  4. Do Not Lose - We Cannot Afford it. This coming Sunday afternoon The Light Blues travel to the familiar territory of Hampden for this season's CIS League Cup Final with the intention of going out on the famous park against St.Mirren and winning the club's 26th League Cup trophy. For various reasons I feel this is a game that we simply cannot afford to lose and I'll try to explain why. There's the small, but obvious difference in prize money between winning the Cup and coming off second best as runners up, but despite the fact that our club needs every bit of cash it can get, t
  5. Hull City have confirmed Phil Brown has been relieved of his duties and been placed on gardening leave. As revealed by skysports.com earlier on Monday morning Hull have decided to part ways with Brown as they look to secure survival in the Premier League. Brian Horton and Steve Parkin have been placed in charge of first-team affairs following Brown's exit. A club statement read: "Hull City AFC confirms that Phil Brown has been relieved of his managerial duties at the club and has been placed on gardening leave with immediate effect. Brian Horton and Steve Parkin will take charge of
  6. We or should I say all of football have much to be grateful to the founders of Queens Park FC. A great wee read and enlightening. http://www.queensparkfc.co.uk/Club%20information/history/intro.html
  7. Well maybe not. http://www.eveningtimes.co.uk/sport/editor-s-picks-ignore/don-hutchison-skipper-davie-weir-is-walter-smith-s-boss-of-bosses-on-field-of-play-1.1010708 Diehard Rangers fan Don Hutchison today identified the driving force behind the cash-strapped Ibrox clubââ?¬â?¢s incredible bid for a domestic Treble ââ?¬â?? his old mate Davie Weir. Hutchison played with Weir at former club Everton and with Scotland and has been delighted to see him enjoying great success in Glasgow in the twilight of his playing days. The ex-striker, now carving out a career for himself as
  8. I have avoided buying the Times and Sunday Times since the oafish one was employed to wax pishical on sporting matters Calendonian (see how easy it is to write like Graham!), but on espying the snow continuing to cover my corner of Johnstone this afternoon, I redirected my portly gait toward the newsagent. 'Another day of soggy boots wasting my valued, 22 year old carpet,' I thought. 'Fresh newspaper required. What better,' I further ruminated, 'than the increasingly jowly visage of Scotland's leading exponent of The Sectarian Industry with which to wipe our shoes?' It was with this pleasa
  9. HIBS today gave the green light to the rebuilding of Easter Road's East Stand. An announcement revealing a start date and anticipated timescale for the completion of the work was made this morning. But with the club's directors keen to have the new stand, which will seat 6000 fans, in place for the start of next season ââ?¬â?? the first SPL matches are scheduled for 14 August ââ?¬â?? demolition work on the old East Stand is set to begin shortly. The much-anticipated final piece of Easter Road's redevelopment, which started with the completion of the existing South and Famous Five St
  10. Just back from a wee break in Las Americas, a belated honeymoon, 18 years belated !! Visited the Ibrox Bar on Pueblo Canario, a great night out and made several friends. This place had a bad rep. in the past, but the new owner appears to have turned it around. The guy, originally from Saltcoats, has been in the area for many years and has another place which his son and daughter now run. He was a part time regular in the past so he knows the Bar's history. Anyone going over should give it a wee try and judge for themselves, I found it a great wee place to meet likeminded Bears.
  11. RANGERS chairman Alastair Johnston believes the remaining 13 games of the SPL campaign hold the key to the Ibrox club securing a healthier, long-term financial future. Speaking as Rangers published half-yearly accounts which reveal an operating profit of �£13.1 million for the six months to 31 December 2009, Johnston admitted the value of Champions League qualification cannot be overstated in addressing the prospects of reducing his club's �£31million debt and attracting new ownership and investment. The Scottish champions' interim figures also showed a turnover of �£37.8million,

Less than 24 hours after Robbie Keane became Celtic's eighth new arrival and the highest player in SPL history Record Sport can reveal Smith has been instructed to drastically slash the wage bill. Rangers raked in �£1million and reduced their operating costs by �£40,000 a wee
  13. http://sport.scotsman.com/football/Saturday-Interview-Cosgrove-the-champion.6028570.jp FWIW, I know a lot of bears distrust Cosgrove because of the content of some of his work but have spoken with him a few times over the years I know he's sympathetic to our opinions on the media and has also helped me personally with charitable donations for Moni Malawi. Good to read his comments here suggesting Rangers fans are quite correct to question the influence of the media in Scotland.
  14. A strange choice in my opinion. Sacked by Sheff Wed, a Championship club last month and appointed manager of an EPL club.
  15. FORMER Scotland manager Craig Brown believes Kris Boyd should not be given the opportunity to resurrect his international career under Craig Levein. Levein is set to take over as national team manager after agreeing a four-and-a-half year deal with the Scottish Football Association. His appointment could pave the way for a return to the national fold for Rangers striker Boyd, who refused to play under previous boss George Burley after complaining of a lack of opportunities under the manager. But Brown would not welcome the sight of Boyd in the dark blue jersey of Scotland again. "You

  17. Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi of Italy is recovering in hospital after an assault left his face covered in blood following a rally in Milan. He suffered two broken teeth, a minor nose fracture and cuts to his lip after being struck by a man wielding a souvenir model of the city's cathedral. Mr Berlusconi, 73, tried to assure supporters afterwards he was OK. The alleged attacker, who has a history of mental illness, has been charged with throwing the souvenir.

Anyone seen this? http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/internationals/8407608.stm Italian coach Nevio Scala interested in Scotland job Scala was sacked from his last coaching role in Moscow in 2004 Italian coach Nevio Scala has applied to become Scotland's next manager. The 62-year-old was on the Scottish Football Association's shortlist to succeed Craig Brown before Berti Vogts was appointed in 2002. Scala, a former Parma and Borussia Dortmund coach, was also in the running when George Burley took over last year. He said: "I have made my interest known to

  20. Truth and transparency at Rangers AGM. With tomorrows AGM approaching may I make a plea for the above prose to be the watchwords for the Directors of Rangers FC, to extend unconditionally those sentiments to our Share Holders and supporters attending tomorrows event. I myself cannot attend tomorrows meeting as I am not a shareholder, although having been a Bear for over forty years I always felt that as a fan my presence although welcome on the terracing, would never be appreciated within the corridors of authority at Ibrox. This is no reflection on Mr Murray�s tenure of

  22. RANGERS directors will hold a board meeting today on the eve of what promises to be one of the stormiest annual general meetings in the club's history. At the board meeting, the directors will discuss how to deal with questions over how the club is being run which are likely to be raised from the floor at tomorrow's AGM. It follows statements made by manager Walter Smith that the club's bank, Lloyds Banking Group, was in effect running the in-debt club, statements refuted by owner Sir David Murray. Company turn-around specialist Donald Muir was elected to the board in October and i

Books, clothes, strips, programmes, photos and general memorabilia - we've all got them; which means there isn't a great deal of items around that are totally unique or which can be personalised to our own favourite Rangers moment. Step forward George Thomson and the 'Art of Rangers'! http://www.theartofrangers.co.uk As you can see from this superb artist's new website, George has a range of i
  24. Darrell King Published on 4 Dec 2009 LAST WEEK Graham Duffy, the Florida-based Glaswegian business*man, exclusively revealed in The Herald his plans for a supporter-led buyout of debt-laden Rangers. The 42-year-old Glaswegian wants to underwrite the Ibrox clubâ��s �£31m debt and then implement a membership scheme, with 45,000 supporters taking a �£1000 stake in the Scottish champions. Duffyâ��s proposals have been the subject of great debate since. In an exclusive interview with Darrell King from his home in Florida, Duffy responds to the issues every Rangers fan

Another interesting few thoughts on our manager for you to ponder from Andy.... http://www.gersnetonline.co.uk/2010/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=172:dr-jeykll-and-mr-smith&catid=1:articles&Itemid=67 Robert Louis Stevenson's short story of conflicted personality, "Jeykll and Hyde", continues to resonate in the Scottish soul well over a century since it was written. Just as his literary predecessor James Hogg observed in "Memoir of a Justified Sinner", the country and its' people are often faced with an unenviable position: making a choice when both choice
