  1. "FURIOUS campaigners last night warned sectarian yobs have scored a major victory — as two anti-bigotry charities faced folding over a lack of cash. Nil by Mouth — set up after a teenage football fan was murdered — will close within months if they don’t get fresh funding from the Scottish Government. And Kick Out Bigotry has effectively shut down ALREADY after its cash supply was cut off — leading to fears of a rise in religious hate crimes." http://www.thescottishsun.co.uk/scotsol/homepage/news/article1971991.ece ================== Nil By Mouth was originally set up by C

  3. By Graeme Bryce, 22/11/2008 SIR DAVID MURRAY claims the next multi-million-pound buyout of a British club could rock the football world � because it could happen in SCOTLAND rather than the Premiership. The Rangers chairman insists the prospect of a Russian billionaire, oil-rich Sheikh or American tycoon making a major investment in Rangers or Celtic isn�t as fanciful as it seems. He reckons the Premiership can no longer guarantee their mega-rich clubs a passport to the Champions League they crave every season. In recent years Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and
  4. PUT it down to a conspiracy. Put it down to intimidation. Put it down to global warming, the credit crunch or Haringey social services if it makes you happy. But this morning, I�m putting it down as pure, bald fact. Celtic have now had FIVE blatantly wrong refereeing decisions go their way this season. And it�s driving managers, players, directors and fans of every other club round the twist. That�s not Celtic�s fault. They are the same as everyone else, happy to accept the breaks when they come along. It�s just a pity for the rest of
  5. http://www.gersnetonline.net/newsite/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=694&Itemid=2 In conjunction with our friends at Breedon Books, we have a couple of copies of the following fantastic book available to win. Temple of Dreams: The Changing Face of Ibrox By Iain Duff http://www.breedonbooks.co.uk/ For more than 100 years, Ibrox has been the home of Rangers Football Club. It has been the scene not only of some of this sporting institution's greatest triumphs, but also of two of the worst disasters in British football. An imposing ground that is rich in history
  6. By Lindsay Herron FOOTBALL nowadays is dominated by agents and advisors as players and even managers make sure they get the best contracts and commercial deals. Some players have a complete entourage looking after them - but it was not always like this, even as recently as Rangers' trophy-laden 9 in a row era. Indeed, the greatest goal-scorer in the club's history, Ally McCoist, had no representation when he was smashing all of the Ibrox scoring records. Gazza and Ally were the goal heroes in 1986So when it came to contract renewal time McCoist was on his own and left to negoti
  7. LEGENDARY Rangers manager Bill Struth and sensational striker Derek Johnstone have been inducted into Scottish Football's Hall of Fame. Struth, who bossed Rangers for an incredible 34 years, and DJ joined an illustrious band of men when they were announced at a dinner in Glasgow tonight. They were inducted along with John Thomson, Billy Liddell, Archie Gemmill, Jim Leighton, Ian St John and Bobby Evans. Football fans from all over the world nominated players whom they thought should be recognised for their contribution to Scottish football. Derek Johnstone at the Nou Camp with
  8. THE Rangers Charity Foundation's Wild West Ball raised a record �£110,000 on Saturday night at the Hilton Hotel in aid of its charity partners Fairbridge in Glasgow, RNIB Scotland and UNICEF. The total raised breaks the �£100,000 mark for the first time in the Ball's 6 year history and was a major boost for the Foundation as it strives to raise �£200,000 for charity this season. Walter Smith, Ally McCoist, Kenny McDowall and Ian Durrant attended along with many members of the first team squad in a great show of support for the Foundation's work. The first team got involved in
  9. Scared of giving a decision against selltic. If they are actually cheats, they must be the most blatant in football history, not even trying to hide it anymore. Or is it more likely to be a mixture of being incompetent and scared. If someone like Alex Ferguson or Souness were the manager of Rangers, would this have been allowed to develop. Keeping quiet over the years has come back to haunt us, it seems the only people Rangers speak out about are us, their own Support.
  10. ... but a must read : Silence is not Green, White and Golden In December 1915, when I was seventeen and a half, I ran away from home to join the 4th Battalion East Surreys. I was under age so I had to lie to the recruitment sergeant. I said I was eighteen years old and my name was Sydney Harrison. I told the truth later though, because if I�d been killed as Harrison, nobody would ever have known what happened to me. Arras was the first time I went over the top. We played football together as we went over. That was the tradition in the East Surreys. I remember the ball droppi
  11. Best part was watching his girlfriend jumping up and down.
  12. Only cowards insult people who don’t have an opportunity to defend themselves. The papers have turned this into a fine art –offended on behalf of imaginary people; offended at imaginary people. Every politician, newspaper hack, football club owner with their own little renegade-denouncer-of-great-evil fantasy has jumped on a bandwagon of their own creation to stand up for the Sectarianly Oppressed against the Sectarian Oppressors – getting to be the Goodie in a sea of Baddies. Politicians and newspaper hacks earn a living off this – it’s the very controversy that pays the bills. For Murray it’
  13. As there is no Rangers related football to discuss as the Dundee UTD game was (rightly) called off due to the sad death of their Chairman Eddie Thompson I was going to, surprisingly perhaps, direct my weekly rants exclusively at Walter Smith. Firstly for his cowardly and ill informed comments regarding internet bigots, but bmck and Calscot not only beat me to it, but penned far more eloquent articles that I could ever muster : http://www.gersnetonline.net/vb/showthread.php?t=8519 http://www.gersnetonline.net/vb/showthread.php?t=8511 However, Uncle Walter doesn’t escape my attention

Doctors are warning about the dangers of minge drinking A farmer in Devon has made history by growing a field of dildos! Unfortunately he's had a lot of trouble with squatters! 85% of Liverpudlian males say they enjoy sex in the shower........ The other 15% haven't been to prison yet I'm really p*ssed off!

  16. The remark in red really worries me. I also wonder if Demarcus means it seriously or is having a dig. Surely Fergie has to fight for his place like everyone.
  17. No, not that one, I mean the good old Rangers Supporters Association. Much maligned and much smaller than in its heyday, the RSA has done its member clubs proud this time. John McMillan, the secretary of the RSA, has held meetings with both Hibs & Hearts over the last couple of weeks and has secured ticket allocations for RSA member clubs for this seasons matches at Easter Road and Tynecastle. The long standing history and good record of the RSA was a key factor in negotiations with the clubs. As John and the rest of the RSA often get some abuse for perceived inaction or pr
  18. UCF2008 posted the above in the other thread. my original rent-a-cause-reactionaries comment was about their general make-everyone-love-us philosophy. their persecution complex and immediate support for anything, no matter how contradictory, to maintain their romantic rebels image. that being said, i do think his point is worth a debate. recent times have seen ranting as never before. its seen protesting. a whole culture of complaining has developed - but i do think that there are also valid societal reasons for this (information culture/credit crunch/anxieties about pluralism) as well as
  19. Thomas Jordan Evening Times EMBARRASSING. Disgraceful. Shameful. Diabolical. Just some of the words that could be used to describe Rangers' performance as they crashed out of Europe. However, the biggest criticism you could level at Walter Smith's players is that not enough of them cared. Not enough of them wore the blue jersey with pride. And not enough of them were willing to go the extra mile. Yes, they were hurting as they faced up to the prospect of being directly responsible for one of the worst, if not THE worst, result in the Ibrox club's 52-year European histor

    Siamese twins walk into a pub in Toronto and park themselves on a bar stool. One of them says to the landlord, 'Don't mind us, we're joined at the hip. I'm John, he's Jim. Two Molson Canadian beers please'. The landlord, feeling slightly awkward, tries to make polite conversation while pouring the beers. 'Been on holiday yet, lads?' 'Off to England next month,' says John. 'We go to England every year and hire a car and drive for miles,don't we, Jim?' Jim agrees. 'Ah, England!' says the landlord. 'Wonderful country... the history, the beer, the culture...'
  22. Agree with the guy If Rangers want to compete with Celtic then we have to get the maximum amount of people possible into Ibrox. I also feel it is crazy to have a stadium doing nothing for most of the time. Shops ,fitness clubs and other amenities should be built in to generate an income from the building. I wonder when Murray will make a statement on this?
  23. Now, I am generally not a fan of ‘pre-season friendlies’ and as a rule don’t go to many. This changed last season when we were visited by Chelsea and I have to say, I really enjoyed the match and the atmosphere generated pre and post match by the fantastic travelling Chelsea support. I am also not one to indulge in love-ins or ambulance chasing that the Tims have off to a tee. However, the Chelsea game was a fantastic spectacle and our welcome certainly transmitted through to our visitors as Jose Mourhino, Frank Lampard, Joe Cole and Didier Drogba all later commented on the atmosphere that day
  24. http://www.newsnow.co.uk/A/282922963?-11344 Anyone who has read Gibbon’s masterwork knows, well, knows more than me, as it is a very long book, and I didn’t even nearly finish it. But, all in all, he seemed to think that Rome fell because they ceased to be strong, dignified and gentlemanly, and gave themselves over to self indulgence, prestige, and ultimately decadence. They became trivial, weak, and the barbarians sauntered in and broke up the most lasting of Empires. In truth, I couldn’t care less about Romans. To me it is happy irony that after kicking people’s arses for ages theirs
  25. Hope this isn't true. Even if it is, I hope he ignores the money offer, he could do far far better than Sunderland.......in a COUPLE of seasons
