  1. http://news.sky.com/skynews/article/0,,30100-13569377,00.html[HISTORY MEETS SPORT This is one time I want England to hammer there opponents. TBH i think it is again the Tink mhedia that is making all the noise. But then again will the hardcore that go to the Rugby be able to keep shtum? We shall see. Also will the football holigan element see this as a chance to go to Ireland and run amock at the expense of Rugby and its name.
  2. Firstly, I'm defining success as being still in Europe after Christmas and I'm talking about the media and general public taking it for granted. I'm fed up hearing about how poor Tel Aviv were from the media. Yes, they played poorly, but every time Scotland play or we come up against an unknown side in Europe, we hear that there's no such thing as an easy game in Europe. So after losing 2-1 in the first leg and destroying them at home in a superb display, I see lots of negative comments in the media and from people on forums, at work etc saying that we were playing a crappy team. Very l
  3. Two Aberdeen Farmers, Tam & Shuie, were sitting in `The Farmer`s Bar`. Tam turns to Shuie and says "Ye ken fit ? I`m tired o`gan through life wi`oot an education. T`morn I think I`ll ging doon tae the community college and sign up for some classes". Shuie thinks it`s a good idea and the twa leave. The next day Tam goes down to the college and meets the lecturer,who signs him up for the four basic courses, Maths, English, History and Logic. "Logic" Tam says Fit`s 'at"? The lecturer says "I`ll show you. Do you own a strimmer?" "Aye". "Then logic
  4. Much has been written about the abrupt departure of Mr PLG and the reappointment of Mr Smith and the possible reasons behind PLG�s departure, but nothing is going to change the fact that Walter Smith (plus Ally McCoist and Kenny McDowell) has replaced the much lauded (well, before his arrival in Govan) Frenchman. For sometime now, probably since Dick Advocaat�s departure, it has been obvious that Rangers needed a period of stability, whilst David Murray downsized our ambitions as we were in uncontrollable debt. In retrospect, Alex McLeish gave us a period (2 years) of stabili
  5. This was a cowardly assault hitting the guy from behind, deserves all he got and maybe more.
  6. The alleged drinking culture at Rangers is very worrying, if it is true. This is especially so if it involves younger players that have still to establish themselves in the football world. Surely anyone at Ibrox, that knows of our past players, will be more than aware of the problems this can cause. As for PLG not being able to control it, this I do not accept. Like any other work place, anyone under the influence of alcohol should be sent home. The football industry can take it further by fining players, dropping them from the team and exposing/embarrassing them in the media. All are eff
  7. Seems we are in for another Hibs youngster. I was wondering if it would not be cheaper for Murray to buy the whole club,it may be cheaper buying in Bulk than player for player. On a serious note it would seem we have Murray Park. Hibs have the talent to fill it. What are our Scouts Doing? Many of the Scottish youngsters that are making it big at other clubs, are discarded by Rangers at youth level. Who makes these decisions? Have they the vision to spot a talent? This is not only a thing of these times it is throughout our history. Kenny Dalgliesh was also deemed not good enough for us
  8. Whilst there remains some divison and confusion on what has happened over the last couple of days, this has been building since the last six months of Eck's tenure. The bottom line is that we are now a club with a chairman whio wants to sell, no manager, and unrest in the dressing room. As a financial venture, who is likely want to put their money into the club in its current position. Given Murray has been one of the UK's most successful businessmen in the last 20 years, it would have been nice if he could have applied some of that acumen to the club. Instead we have been through th
  9. We could quite possibly finish as Scottish Cup Winners, 2nd in the League giving us a CL place and achieve at east the quarter finals of the UEFA. Think about it all you PLG Out merchants. Last year we managed the worst run in our clubs history.
  10. When DM appointed PLG, along with all the fan-fair and 'look at me' and 'look what I've done', that surrounds The Mint's every appearence on TV, he promised us that this new era would herald 'Moonbeam's of Success' (or something similar) for Rangers. He promised that the arrival of PLG would be accompanied by vast investment that would 'shake Scottish football to it's foundations' that would ensure that Rangers FC would never again be in debt and that the new manager would see a 'substantial' amount as a transfer kitty. When PL was haggling over a new contract, David Murray informed us

  12. I got a complete history of Rangers scores, scorers, and teams on an exel sheet made by the Drum man while on the Gers forums last year( Gersnet was down). Does anyone have a copy with it updated to last season or is there anyone not as lazy as me who would like to update it. If anyone wants a copy i will e-mail it to Jon and he can pass it on.
  13. Was watching MUTV last night and it revealed the Top 50 players in there history out of this new OPUS book which costs 3 grand. The top 10 were: 1) Bobby Charlton 2) George Best 3) Roy Keane 4) Duncan Edwards 5) Denis Law 6) Bryan Robson 7) Eric Cantona 8) Peter Schmeichal 9) Ryan Giggs 10) Paul Scholes I cant doubt the choice of top 10 except maybe Gary Neville could have been in there but id have had Ryan Giggs in the top 5. Rooney was 11th, Ruud VN - 13th, Beckham 14th. Rio Ferd 48th, Teddy Sher 50th.

  15. I make no apoligies for requoting this great post from the Gub on FF. There may be many detractors of the way demonstrations are handled etc, and there is a fairly wide held belief that dismisses any kind of protest as the work of cranks, FF radicals etc etc. The fact is, it isnt. The following gives, for me, a perfectly correct valid and true summation of the last few weeks of the way the club has handled some affairs. It doesnt include the lack of defence of the support or the club from paper attacks (like the Papish Nazi park invader etc) but gives a flavour. It is based on facts and fact
  16. This is a rant, basically. Simply put, why on God's green Earth are any Rangers' Football Club supporter calling for the head of Paul Le Guen? Everyone knows manager's are never given "time to settle" at Rangers.. but this is ridiclous. It's November for Christ's sake. I find it laughable that we spend an entire summer chasing Paul Le Guen, and we praise the high heavens out of Mr. Murray when he finally "get's his man", and no less than 4 months into a season, people are calling for him to resign and, even more laughabley, be sacked. Our support have such short-term minds it's
  17. PAUL LE GUEN has asked for unity among management, players and supporters after watching his side crash out of the CIS Cup tonight. Two goals from Steven Milne earned St Johnstone a 2-0 victory and in doing so consigned Rangers to their first ever home cup defeat to lower league opposition in their illustrious history. Le Guen admitted the First Division side deserved their win but asked for more time to get things right. He said: "I am very disappointed and I apologise to our supporters. We did well for 30 minutes and created many crosses and some chances. "After that though we lost
  18. http://www.gersnet.info/fmrangers/newmain/151006.html After another week of mediocrity, weakness and capitulation, where do Rangers FC go from here? Season 06/07 began with excitement and predictions of grandeur. The appointment of PLG and the signing of a few new, young players along with the eventual removal of the past-it fringe guys meant that Rangers would be once again heading for the record books by capturing our 52nd title. Incredibly, only 10 games and less than 3 months into the new season, the only record we’ve broken is one to compliment the not so proud one of last se
  19. If we do not force Murrays hand, the future for Rangers Football Club under the continued custodianship of David Murray is not just bleak, but should put the fear of God into the Rangers support. In the last 5 or so years, Rangers have stagnated both on and off the pitch, but today was a new low for Rangers and for me, signals that our demise is closer than we all realise (or maybe care to realise). David Murray has made it abundantly clear that he is not putting any of his money into Rangers, and we just have to guess where the JJB, Champions League and season ticket money disappeared to
  20. And I'm not being kinky here... Scotland have a tradition of keeping poor quality managers in a job for a long time after their sell by date, so let's make sure we don't lose a prime quality one. Let's be honest, Walter Smith is not really among the best club managers Scotland has produced. He had great domestic success at Rangers but it was at a time when we were spending far more than our opposition and had possibly the highest wage bill in the UK. Celtic were in turmoil and Smith took advantage. Don't get me wrong, I think Smith is a good manager, worse managers than he would ha

  22. RANGERS have been praised by Uefa in their bid to rid the club of sectarian baggage. The governing body fined the Ibrox club �£15,500 in June following an appeal against their own not guilty verdict for chanting at last season's Champions League ties against Villarreal. They were warned that future misbehaviour could lead to heavier sanctions. Rangers were also ordered to embark on a sustained campaign to ram home the message to fans that the minority must clean up their act. So far that has included high profile Pride over Prejudice campaigns, a new song book being handed out to fan
  23. A NIGHT RANGERS WILL NEVER FORGET 10:00 - 26 August 2006 As the latest clutch of mostly uninspiring European matches found their way onto our screens this week, a radio phone-in debated one of football's mysteries: how is it that Glasgow Rangers have won just a single European trophy? That victory arrived on May 24, 1972, at Barcelona's Nou Camp, when Rangers produced a glorious performance in the first hour of the Cup Winners' Cup final to lead Moscow Dynamo 3-0. Although the Russians rallied and scored two late goals, it wasn't enough to deny a group of players whose names were to b
  24. Shocking habit but when I was home on holiday I got the racing post and saw an advert about these professional gamblers who were offering their services (they have a mathematical program to look at form, weight, course, distance, jockey, trainer, going etc etc) All their past history was on their website and for the past 8 YEARS they have been placing bets of 200 quid on each race for the horses that their system ranks out as being very good bets. In the past 8 years they have won 80,000 quid and for 2006 are currently sitting at 10,000 profit. I joined the service last weekend and
  25. It was my Mum and Dadââ?¬â?¢s 60th Birthdays recently and as a wee treat, we organised a family day out at Ibrox on Sunday where we took in the Ibrox Tour and then had lunch at the Argyle House restaurant. I have to say that both were fantastic and I would recommend either / both to anyone who is looking for a good day out. Firstly, we partook in the tour experience and our guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the club (and yes, Cammy did throw in some questions!!) and was quite witty. The only thing that the tour misses is a Rangers museum ââ?¬â?? our great stadium has ever
