  1. RST chairman Malcolm McNiven is pleased to announce three new appointments to the RST Board, namely, Jim Templeton, President of the Rangers Supporters Assembly and Chairman of the Rangers World-Wide Alliance, who will bring a wealth of experience to the RST, along with John MacMillan and John Donald both leading representatives of the Rangers Supporters Association. These steps further signal everyone�s willingness to work together for the betterment of Rangers Football Club. This is yet another landmark in the short history of the Trust. The RST has grown as a significant force in
  2. Every weekend in the Scottish press you can read advertisements for the self styled ââ?¬Ë?Worlds (sic) Number 1 Glasgow Celtic Bandââ?¬â?¢, Charlie & The Bhoys. This is a busy band who have an extensive gig history and wide repertoire of songs. Lets look at a couple of them starting with the song currently so popular at Celtic Park ââ?¬Ë?Willie Maleyââ?¬â?¢ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RbmUQMPJ65g 1 min 2 secs in you get to the crowd courted cry ââ?¬Ë?IRAââ?¬â?¢. This happens every time this song is sung and has done since its inception. Another popular song which ap
  3. Outcry over TV kidney competition The show comes from Big Brother creators Endemol A Dutch TV station says it will go ahead with a programme in which a terminally ill woman selects one of three patients to receive her kidneys. Political parties have called for The Big Donor Show to be scrapped, but broadcaster BNN says it will highlight the country's shortage of organ donors. "It's a crazy idea," said Joop Atsma, of the ruling Christian Democrat Party. "It can't be possible that, in the Netherlands, people vote about who's getting a kidney," he told the BBC. The progra

  5. bit bored today so I thought I'd fire up a few of these and see how you lot get on 1. What is the only song to ever top the US Billboard rock, dance, and R&B charts simultaneously? 2. who was rummored to have played piano on the shangrillas hit leader of the pack? 3. Which band, previously called On a Friday, took their name from a Talking Heads song? 4. What's the connection between Huey Lewis and The News, Jennifer Rush, and Frankie Goes To Hollywood? 5. Which band took their name because they were all less than 5 foot 6? 6. Gerry Rafferty wrote Baker Street in a
  6. Make a coffee before you start, it might take you a while to get through this. Some of these are hilarious, whether they're true or not.
  7. Here is a compilation of actual students answers in an exam Read em and weep! 1. Ancient Egypt was inhabited by mummies and they all wrote in hydraulics. They lived in the Sarah Dessert and travelled by Camelot. The climate of the Sarah is such that the inhabitants have to live elsewhere. 2. The Bible is full of interesting caricatures. In the first book of the Bible, Guinessis, Adam and Eve were created from an apple tree. One of their children, Cain, asked, Am I my brother's son? 3. Moses led the Hebrew slaves to the Red Sea, where they made unleavened bread which is bread m
  8. Not a surprise. He started off well but it turned pair shape and Man City went from a good attacking team to dull and boring. I dont like him anyway so :uzi: Do City want to hijack Newcastles talks with Allardyce!!! If he chose Man City he wouldnt have to move house etc....and City are potentially as big as Newcastle and may have the cash to spend.
  9. Lads, the following is a new column I'm thinking of starting - the idea is basically just to keep an eye on the media and summarise the different approaches to their reporting of the news to try and get a more balanced picture. I'm undecided how worthwhile it is, so I'd welcome your thoughts for improvement or indeed if its just a waste of time: Mediawatch ââ?¬â?? the signing of Darcheville Introduction to the column for first time readers In this regular column Iââ?¬â?¢m going to cast a skeptical eye over our friends in the media. Itââ?¬â?¢s a poor manââ?¬â?¢s attempt to de-se
  10. I know that technically, you canââ?¬â?¢t win ââ?¬Ë?1 in a rowââ?¬â?¢, but please bare with me as hopefully youââ?¬â?¢ll see where this is going. As the 10th anniversary of our fantastic achievement approaches, I thought that it would be a good idea to relive my personal memories of this time, and recount those to the fellow forumees. I will apologies up front for any historical errors, or any dates, scores or scorers that I get wrong my memory isnââ?¬â?¢t what it used to be. The first game in the 9-in-a-row run was played at Douglas Park against Hamilton Accies and we were eager to di
  11. There's a surprise. They must be the biggest underachievers in the history of football if you add up what they've spent against silverware won. Sam Allardyce for the job anyone?
  12. “Does Scotland have a problem with sectarian abuse?” seems like a very easy question to answer in today’s social climate. I’m sceptical when issues about the whole of a society can be answered simply. It tends to make me think that something quite fundamental’s been missed somewhere. This article follows the tendency in philosophy since the 1920’s to try and unravel the language used to describe big issues. Language can trip us up, and if what we’re saying cant be said ordinarily and clearly, then nothings really being said at all. I suggest that we’ve been fed a language – fed by the gov
  13. Rangers manager Walter Smith hopes to set up a player exchange programme with David Beckham's future employers, Major League Soccer outfit LA Galaxy. The Glasgow side will face Galaxy in a friendly in the USA on 23 May. And Smith told the Scottish Daily Express: "We will be holding talks with a view to setting up an exchange scheme that can help develop players. "With Beckham already signed, they will attract the cream of American kids who want to play alongside a superstar." Former England midfielder Beckham will join the Californian outfit in a five-year deal worth a reported
  14. Played 10 Won 8 Drawn 2 Lost 0 For 19 Against 3 Clean sheets 7 Points 26 Now extrapolate that over 38 and the 33 games: Played 38, 33 Won 30, 26 Drawn 8, 7 Lost 0, 0 For 72, 63 Against 11, 10 Clean sheets 27, 23 Points 98, 85 Now I know it's not that simple but it's obviously championship winning form and if we'd got Walter in at the beginning of the season and had these kind of stats we'd be at least 7 points ahead of Celtic and talking about "grinding out results". The remarkable thing is that Walter is doing this with a squad of players that have failed to win
  15. Whilst we were dominating Scottish Football in the early 90ââ?¬â?¢s, Rangers were ââ?¬Ë?richerââ?¬â?¢ than clubs like Manchester United and after our fantastic European adventure in 93, we were better placed to win the European Cup than teams like Man U, Arsenal, Chelsea etc. It can be argued that those ââ?¬Ë?bigââ?¬â?¢ English clubs were still adjusting to life in the ââ?¬Ë?newââ?¬â?¢ English Premiership and life back on the European stage after years of exile. However, we defeated the English Champions home and away on the way to the inaugural Champions League group stages and were on
  16. It is exactly 3 years on Gersnet from the Gribz Im sorry to burden you all with my shite!! I was bored at work one day and i was pissed off with McLeish and wanted football chat with fellow bears so I did a google search for 'Rangers Forums'. Gersnet came up and i didnt even look at anything else so registerred straight away. My first post was "worst Gers team in history?" but since then that team wasnt too bad eh!! I remember the first reply was Cammy saying I hadnt been around in the 80s - correct sir, i was a little young!!! Anyway here's to another 3 years from yours truly
  17. This has been so regular recently, we have had so much days off. Saturdays are all about football and the summer is approaching fast when we will have about a 10 week break which is bad enough, but we have lots of off days in Feb, Mar and Apr. One reason is being out of the Scottish Cup. We are almost on out longest stretch of not winning this trophy since that big gap between 1981 and 1992!!. Since then we won it in 92, 93, 96, 99, 2000, 2002, 2003 but we are now we have at least a 5 year gap since winning the oldest trophy in history!! That HAS to be rectified for next season!! E
  18. Fire destroys Johnny Cash house Johnny Cash Johnny Cash lived in the house from 1968 until his death in 2003 The lakeside Tennessee home of late country music superstar Johnny Cash has been destroyed in a fire. It burned down on Tuesday while renovations were being carried out for its new owner, Bee Gee Barry Gibb. The interior of the house, in Hendonsville, Tennessee, was used in the video for Cash's final hit, his 2002 cover of Nine Inch Nails' Hurt. Cash and his wife, June Carter Cash, lived in the house from 1968 until their deaths, months apart, in 2003. 'Sanctuary and
  19. http://www.rangerssupporterstrust.co.uk/rs...00&Itemid=1 Following an unprecedented meeting, arranged by Billy Montgomery of Nithsdale Loyal, involving 68 Rangers Supporters' Clubs and 7 fans' organisations on Saturday 5 April, the Rangers Supporters' Trust, Rangers Supporters' Assembly and Rangers Supporters' Association have made a joint statement asking all parts of the Rangers family to unite in doing three things: improve the atmosphere at games; support the team; and demonstrate the best of our traditions. Whilst many of us no doubt feel we are being victimised, there can be
  20. After another appalling and heartless performance at Ibrox on Saturday I read with interest that many fans felt booing wasnââ?¬â?¢t suitable and that we should be supporting the players as opposed to criticising them so publicly. In addition to that, there were further complaints of the general atmosphere being poor as well as the usual complaints about the ââ?¬Ë?Subway Loyalââ?¬â?¢ leaving early. Generally, one can understand these points of view but I think the prevailing reason for such differences of opinion is merely another symptom of the Rangers family breakdown. After another
  21. http://www.gersnetonline.net/newsite/index.php That time is here again. The letters will soon be through the door and RFC are asking for your hard-earned cash – often more than £400 in many cases. Are you automatically reaching for your bank account details? Is it money well spent or could it be considered emotional blackmail? Whatever you think wait a few minutes before getting your wallet out – read on! The end of this season will now see 2 years of no success – not one trophy! The product on offer has been depressing and if it wasn’t for a decent CL run last season and an interesti
  22. Watched this tonight at 9pm on BBC2. Absolutely fascinating. The story of the ship the old American destroyer they disguised as a German destroyer was incredible. The courage these soldiers has was unlimited. Hats off to every single one of them. I was there in 1997 as a wee 15 year old and took no notice of it and regret it now. The older gersnetters will know where St Nazaire is and what it's about but for the younger users here's a link to it.... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St_Nazaire My Grandpa fought against the Germans as a rear gunner in the RAF. Makes me proud as punch ha
