  1. It's all them foreigners' fault! Coming over 'ere, beating our teams...and what about that Arsene Wenger, eh? He'd defend Adolf if 'e was wearing a Gunners shirt! Bleedin' Eduardo... Disregarding the hypocritical bleating of former players - all, doubtless, keen to play up their own honesty at the expense of others - it has to be faced, players have been diving since the year dot. It's only the improved coverage from more, better cameras in the last 10-15 years that has seen the perpetrators of this heinous crime being caught. Yes, that co-incided with the influx of foreign players into both SPL and EPL; but anyone who claims these greasy, garlic smelling dagos, wops and Krauts have initiated our honest Alf Tuppers into their evil mysteries is deluding themselves. My memory is not what is was - but I can recall Kevin Drinkell hitting the deck against Anton Rogan years ago, just before the tackle came in, not that I was complaining. I can recall Roy Aitken, hilariously sporting both the captain's armband and the shirt of his country - explain that - flying throught the air with all the grace of an arthritic goose, while a bemused Eastern European looked on wondering why. There must have been countless other examples. So come on you media types - let's have less of the patronising, mildly xenophobic finger pointing and address the matter honestly. There's nothing new in diving, but I suppose there's nothing new in hypocrisy either.

    A Timette goes to the council to register for child benefit. "How many children?" asks the council worker "10" replies the Timette "10???" says the council worker.. "What are their names?" "Declan, Declan, Declan, Declan, Declan, Declan, Declan, Declan, Declan and Declan" "Doesn't that get confusing?" "Naah..." says the Timette "its great because if they are out playing in the street I just have to shout DECLAAAN, YER DINNER'S READY or DECLAN GO TO BED NOW and they all do it..." "What if you want to speak to one individually?" says the perturbed council worker. "That's easy," says the Timette... "I just use their surnames" Einstein walks into a party and begins mingling with the guests there. He asks the first man he meets what his IQ is. "243" comes the reply. "Great" says Einstein "we can discuss my theory of relativity and the mysteries of how the universe was formed." The next person he meets is a woman, to whom he asks the same question. She says her IQ is 150. "Fantastic" says Einstein "we can discuss politics and current affairs!" The last guy Einstein meets has a sloping forehead and is drooling all over the shop.. "What is your IQ my friend?" asks Albert. "67" comes the answer. Einstein replies: "mcdonald had a blinder on Saturday, didn't he..." How do you get a Celtic fan to stand up? Say "Will the defendant please rise." Why is it George Michael's ambition to play in goals for Celtic? Because he'd have have 10 arseholes in front of him and 60,000 pricks behind him. Did you hear that the Post Office just recalled their latest stamps? They had pictures of Celtic Players on them and people couldn't figure out which side to spit on. What do Celtic fans use for birth control? Their personalities What's the difference between the Celtic team bus and a hedgehog? There's more PRICKS on the Celtic bus than on the hedgehog. What's clear and goes on a prick? A clear condom, What's black and goes on a prick? A black condom, What's green and goes on a prick? A celtic shirt. Police today closed of an area of Parkhead after finding a suspicious item in a car. Police later confirmed it was a tax disc __________________
  3. Just read on SSN that Bendtner changed his squad number for the upcoming season and because it was a late change he has personally offered to reimburse any fan who bought his shirt with the previous number Pretty decent gesture. That said, surely there wont be too many Gooner fans with Bendtner on the shirt....

  5. RANGERS and Celtic are on the hunt for a new shirt sponsor after Carling called time on the association which has run for six years. But the warning from commercial experts is that, due to the current economic situation, they might struggle to attract bids worth more than �£1million per year. That's less than HALF the �£2.2m in total they currently receive from Carling, and would be another severe blow to the income of the clubs who are reeling after yesterday's cut-price TV deal saw them battered again financially. There are now genuine fears inside both Old Firm clubs they could lose up to �£5m each over the length of a four-year contract, based on previous monies offered for shirt sponsor deals. advertisement The Carling deal, which began in 2003 and which was renewed in 2005, has now entered its final year. Talks about its renewal have already taken place over the past few months between the clubs and the brewer, but sources have told SportTimes Carling have opted against going on. The brand - who are owned by US-based Molson Coors - are aware of the success rivals Tennent's have enjoyed with T In The Park, and have been looking to focus on music-related promotions. Paul Miller, managing director for Molson Coors in Scotland, refused to confirm that any decision had been made about the renewal of the Old Firm contract as there is hope some kind of corporate tie-in could remain. He said: "The facts are that current deal is up at the end of the season and, as yet, nothing has been agreed about going forward from there. "We are still in conversation with Rangers and Celtic and have been for a few months. It will probably move fairly quickly now in terms of our discussions." Rangers and Celtic are being pro-active to ensure they are not caught cold in their search for a new shirt sponsor. The word has gone out to anyone who might be interested in getting their names on two of the most famous jerseys in world football that the opportunity might be coming up very soon. But the timing could not be worse, given the problems the world economy is experiencing. Carling's initial Old Firm shirt sponsorship deal was for �£12m over four years. But, in 2005 this was replaced by an agreement worth a basic �£18m with substantial bonuses if certain targets are hit, With Celtic and Rangers both reaching the last 16 of the Champions League during this period, and the Ibrox club also competing in the Uefa Cup final, the deal has been more lucrative than any previous deal with shirt sponsors. There is no guarantee the Old Firm will continue to have the same sponsor. But, in commercial terms, it has been considered prudent to be associated with both halves of the city. http://www.eveningtimes.co.uk/sport/display.var.2520540.0.old_firm_facing_more_cash_fears_as_search_starts_for_new_shirt_sponsor_deal.php

Driving along the street i realised I needed to change lane as there was a broken down car ahead with its wheel buckled....out gets the chubby expat driver with none other than a green and white hooped football shirt...I hear it belongs to some team called Celtic..... Beep beep beep....haha :devil:
  10. Over the coming weeks Iââ?¬â?¢ll be delving back into the happenings of the season gone past and reviewing all the major talking points from the debacle in Kanuas to the unforgettable and fantastic scenes at Tannidice when the league flag finally came back home (why do I feel the urge to burst into Glasgow Rangers Champions Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh?). I know there was a game AFTER that Sunday in the sun, but Iââ?¬â?¢ll get to that, I promise. I will try to dismantle the season into three month chunks looking back to the games that had the greatest effect on the SPL title race, how the players faired in those monthly segments and try to decipher how Walter Smith wasnââ?¬â?¢t named Manager of the Year and how Boogie wasnââ?¬â?¢t name player of the year. Boogie isnââ?¬â?¢t only the best player at Ibrox, he is the best player in the land by a country mile. As well as documenting the incidents, performances and results that ensured that theyââ?¬â?¢re would be no 4-in-a-row, I will endeavour to paint an honest opinion of our footballing style (or lack off) over the course of the season. There is no doubting that we displayed some very decent football in patches. Victories at Easter Road, Parkhead and off course, the final SPL game of the season instantly spring to mind. In those games we were simply awesome. It is my opinion that if he had maintained those games as our ââ?¬Ë?standardââ?¬â?¢ and hit that form on a consistent basis, we would have won the league at a canter. However, for every brilliant performance, there was a dross performance (ying and yang if you like). Away to Falkirk twice, away to St Mirren, losing to ICT at Ibrox spring to mind ââ?¬â?? and I havenââ?¬â?¢t mentioned the Scottish Cup Final yet. It is also important to investigate and discuss the state that we approached in the season in given the heartbreaking end to the previous season and off course, the sale of King Carlos. There are many trains of thought as to how successful we were in season 2007/08 where we secured the domestic cup double but that only begins to tell the story. We were tantalisingly close to an unprecedented quadruple and at least, should have been good enough to secure the domestic treble. To let the SPL title slip was unforgivable, no matter the mitigating circumstances. We were so far ahead, Celtc required snookers. Given the disappointment of last season, winning the SPL title was a MUST this season. Allow Celtc to lift their fourth title in a row, given our calamitous financial position would have been akin to committing footballing suicide. With that in mind, it is also our duty not to allow our title victory, our 52nd domestic league title (still a world record), to paper of the enormous cracks in our club. There will be at least 10 players sold in the summer (two have already been released) so it is fair to say that some fans favourites could still leave. If Walter Smith intends to add to the first team, heââ?¬â?¢ll likely have to lose even more than the ten that is currently being banded about. Our club is teetering on the edge and guaranteed champions league money has only delayed more stinging cuts. There is also the question of how our club is being marketed. In laymanââ?¬â?¢s terms, it isnââ?¬â?¢t. Here we are basking in the afterglow of winning the domestic double and there isnââ?¬â?¢t a commemorative DVD (or any item celebrating this apart from ONE t-shirt ââ?¬â?? which I am proudly wearing!). Kris Boyd has just celebrated scoring 100 goals for this club, the first player to do so since Mark Hateley. Again, this wonderful achievement hasnââ?¬â?¢t warranted a DVD. Due to the complications of the Umbro deal, we still arenââ?¬â?¢t any closer to knowing the design of our new home top. All of this may not appear to be important in the context of the wild celebrations that rightly greeted the SPL triumph, but this is the time to cash in on the success and by God do we need the cash. There is also a predicted shortfall in season ticket sales, but the only place you see season ticketââ?¬â?¢s for sale in on the official website. Meanwhile our neighbours are advertising on radio, TV and national press. Anyway, back to the post-mortem of the season gone by and it is great to witness that we have a new ââ?¬Ë?cheer-leaderââ?¬â?¢. After the departure of Shota, we didnââ?¬â?¢t have anyone to marvel at as the celebrations took place ââ?¬â?? well step forward and take a bow Mr Nacho Novo. Watching Novo lately has been a joy in itself, especially his ââ?¬Ë?Ha Ha Samarasââ?¬â?¢ antics at Tannidice. Another aspect of the season that is worth discussing, and Iââ?¬â?¢ll mention this in my reviews is how the team spirit grow over the season and was cemented during and after the ââ?¬Ë?boozegateââ?¬â?¢ affair. It would have been easy for the players to have chucked it at certain stages of the season (being 7 points behind, the boozegate affair, the draw at Easter Road) but they all pulled together and this was most evident at Tannidice when we won the title, but it had been growing over the course of the season. So much so we have players like Boyd, Novo and Mendes claiming that they want to finish their careers at Ibrox and players like Boogie stating that knocking back big money moves to the EPL as being the ââ?¬Ë?correct decisionsââ?¬â?¢. It appears that the feel-ggod factor is back at Ibrox and I believe that this is down to the influences of Ally McCoist and Ian Durrant. In finishing, the hard work starts here as we have to build on this success and ensure that we dominate the domestic game for the next few years. This will not be easy and the full extent of how difficult this will be will only be know once the transfer window is closed and we can assess who is still here. We require a long term replacement for David Weir, a left midfielder (Chris Brunt seems the favourite at the moment and he is a very decent player), a right midfield player (as Stevie Davis isnââ?¬â?¢t the answer wide right). Again, these needs may change depending on who is or isnââ?¬â?¢t sold. Either way, itââ?¬â?¢ll be a nail-biting summer with Rangers fans hoping and praying that our ââ?¬Ë?blue chipââ?¬â?¢ players remain at the club for another season (at least). Next week Iââ?¬â?¢ll open the review concentrating on July through to the end of October. This will include (close your eyes) the Kanuas games, the first OF game of the season and asking if whether our eventual forays into the transfer market would have made a difference if they were signed PRIOR to the CL qualifier.

  13. I cannot stand the man. Never in my life have i felt so negatively and so strongly about a Rangers Player. I hope he never kicks a ball for us again. He is a complete waste of space who thinks he is far better than he is. He has lived off of one good performance in a Rangers shirt and a few good strikes. That fu(king shit with the outside of the right boot he does it at least 3 times every game and it works once if he's lucky. He is a big headed wannabe who thinks all he has to do is turn up and he can do what he wants as he is far better than who he is up against. Guess what Pedro? Sol Bamba gave you a fu(king hard game thats how fu(king good you are. I want him binned for Saturday. After whats went on with Barry Ferguson I'd rather he never wore our jersey again but if I had the choice I would have a half drunk, half fit off form Fergie before this portuguese imposter. This cnut has had it easy all season because we all know he is capable of being the best player in this league by a mile but he hasn't bothered his arse to show it. When i think of the abuse some Rangers players have got over the past few years who have done far more than this Ar$ehole ever will it sickens me. Barry Ferguson, Charlie Miller, Peter Lovenkrands, Kris Boyd, Lorenzo Amoruso even Bert Fu(kin Konterman all done more than him yet he gets a free pass while these guys got dogs abuse. Well enough is enough Pedro Get tae Fu(k.

  15. ANDY Webster has been added to George Burley's Scotland B squad for tomorrow's meeting with Northern Ireland. Andy Webster, ScotlandThe central defender has had a tough season in terms of first team football but has been a stand out for Tommy Wilson's reserve side and has been rewarded with a return to the international scene for the first time under Burley. Webster will join preparations with fellow Ger Stevie Naismith and former team mate Chris Burke as they get ready to welcome Northern Ireland to Broadwood Stadium for a 7.30pm kick off. It will be a welcome return to Scotland duty for a player whose last cap came back in March 2006 against Switzerland when Walter Smith selected him alongside current Rangers stars Davie Weir, Christian Dailly, Kenny Miller and Barry Ferguson for his 22nd appearance in an international shirt. Gers reserve coach Wilson, who will make do without Webster for today's trip to Inverness, believes Webster is due his chance after a season of hard work. He said: "Andy has been improving as the season has gone on, he has played well for us and is looking strong. "This call up is thoroughly deserved and it will be a good preparation for him should he get a recall to the first team before the end of the season."
  16. Rangers shirt hanging up behind Helen and the other bloke. Is it just for the Cup Semi Final or is it usually there?
  17. I wouldn't rule out a Barry Ferguson comeback yet, warns Rangers coach Ally McCoist ALLY McCOIST last night insisted Barry Ferguson can still salvage a future for himself at Rangers. McCoist spoke out as the deposed Ibrox skipper was coming to terms with the calf injury that has almost certainly brought his own personal rollercoaster of a campaign to an end. But while it now seems sure that Ferguson will be shipped out of the club in the summer, McCoist insists he EXPECTS to see the 31-year-old back in a blue shirt again. Walter Smith's right-hand man turned up at Forthbank Stadium in Stirling on Tuesday moments after Ferguson had hobbled off, 60 secondsinto a reserve team clash with Hearts. If, as anticipated, that was his last appearance for Rangers then it will go down as a desperate and sad ending to the player's long-lasting love affair with the club. But even though Ferguson's relationship with Smith has broken down in the wake of the Boozegate scandal, McCoist remains adamant the midfielder will be back. He said: "I don't think for a minute that's been his last appearance in a Rangers shirt. "He has more than a year left on his contract and, that being the case, there is every chance he will play again. "Absolutely, he can come back next season. All he has is a calf injury. He has everything to get fit for with a year on the contract. "Unless something else happens, like he wishes to leave or a club comes in for him with an offer, then it is common sense he will be here next season. "That is the way it looks from where I am sitting. If that is the case then fantastic." Ferguson, in fact, has not given up hope of returning to action before the end of the season even though medics have said his injury will take six weeks to cure. McCoist also doubts the player's ability to heal in time and said: "I spoke with him very briefly after the game at Stirling. He has had his scan and there is definitely a tear in it. "He is thinking three weeks but I am thinking it may be longer than that - and no one had more calf tears than me. I hope that it is only three weeks for Barry." And McCoist has not ruled out a possible top-team return for Ferguson's Boozegate accomplice, Allan McGregor, in tomorrow's Scottish Cup semi-final clash with St Mirren. He said: "We have to move on. I wish I had a pound for every word that has been written over the past couple of weeks. "It is in the past now. Barry made a mistake, Allan made a mistake but let's move on. "McGregor will be considered and have a shout for selection - Barry would have too. You pick teams to win games."

  18. Image Flag 12/04/2009 BOOZEGATE reveller Scott Brown MISSED the same swim session that landed Barry Ferguson and Allan McGregor in hot water, we can reveal. The wrecked Rangers pair ended up in Scotland boss George Burley's bad books when they were too drunk to join their team-mates in the Cameron House pool after their marathon booze-up. But today we can reveal that Brown ALSO didn't take part in the Sunday afternoon "regeneration swimming and stretching" session - meant to tone the squad up for the vital World Cup qualifier with Iceland the following Wednesday. After reporting for the workout, the Celtic midfielder was sent AWAY by Scotland coach Steven Pressley, who ruled he wasn't fit to get in the pool either. One source said: "It certainly looked like he had been up all night. He was very tired." We told last week how Scotland insiders claimed Brown had stayed up all night drinking with Ferguson and McGregor - and only went to bed 20 minutes before the shamed Gers were nabbed. We also understand SFA officials interviewed hotel staff about the various incidents but did not quiz ANY of the players. No Scotland stars were directly asked about their involvement - or what time they'd gone to bed. Our insider said: "The SFA felt they would rather interview people who had been sober at the time." Last night an SFA spokesman refused to say if Burley asked Brown about when he went to bed. An official said: "We're satisfied our information about the players is correct, based on interviews with hotel staff." And Celtic officials also refused to answer questions about Brown's involvement in Boozegate, instead passing the buck back to the SFA - who this week claimed the ace went to bed at around 8.30am. We asked the Parkhead club's spokesman why OUR Scotland source told us that Brown DID stay up till around noon drinking with the Rangers captain and goalkeeper. We also quizzed him on our information that Brown was turned away from the pool session - and asked if the midfielder was relieved he hadn't been punished. Celtic's spokesman said: "The SFA have closed their investigation and said there was no blame on any other player. I haven't spoken to him (Brown) so I don't know if he's relieved. "I can't answer these questions because these are really Scotland issues for the SFA. It's not something the club would comment on." Brown also refused to answer our questions after Celtic's 1-1 draw with Hearts yesterday. Dressed in jeans and a club T-shirt, he stopped to chat to fans and to sign autographs outside Edinburgh's Tynecastle stadium after the match. But when approached by our reporter, the ex-Hibs ace said: "No comment" before boarding the Hoops team bus. http://www.newsoftheworld.co.uk/scottish/scottish_news/261456/Celtic-ace-missed-Scotland-pool-session-Scott-Brown.html
  19. A bit start and stop as its sent from my mobile: Amougst others and against some, I think i can 110% share the sentiments of my fellow poster - Pete - that an elephant came off the shoulders of many a man at Ibrox yesterday. FINALLY Walter Smith showed some ruthless-ness (if thats a word) in dealing with a couple of men who think they are head and shoulders above 10000s of true Rangers men and women! Barry Ferguson and Allan McGregor have it all. Fat paychecks with no need to worry about any gas bill and employment within the GREATEST 4 walls of Great Britain! Thats right folks - Ibrox is up there with the very best when it comes to stadia - if it wasnt for the the silly Euro money going to England we would still oust Old Trafford IMO. These guys pulled on the blue jersey thinking of nothing but themselves. Ferguson and McGregor got to pull the on shirt in week in week out but this went to there heads thinking they couldnt ever be brought back to life - How Walter Smith turned the clock back in style to put the stuffin into that then!!! Personally I am a Walter fan and 1 who tends to lean towards his 9IAR achievments - however i had been questioning his mentality for the past 2-3 months about his desire for Rangers and bizarre tactics! - The Past 24 hours have shown and proved to me that the MAN is still there!!!! He has shown up George Burley on how to deal with a man! IMO if the 7 particapants walked in protest last weekend then id have paid for everyone of there taxis home! If thats what playing for Scotland means these days then call up 11 hard working men who WANT to be there. I really dont know if Walter rubbed his hands at this weeks event to get rid of the bad apple in the side! I actually still think WS thought deep down BF could still be a player for Rangers like most of us hope. On a side note, Only an Excuse must be sending thank you cards to Ibrox right now for giving them the material for the next show! But at the same time Paul Le Guen must be break dancing at the latest show to come from Ibrox. For me we have taken a huge step in the RIGHT direction this week. For 1 - Neil Alexander will deservedly be between the sticks from now on. Allan McGregor hand the world at his feet but blew it! I went as far as saying we lost the SPL last season due his injury but he turning into a loose cannon who would rather thnk of himself rather than what he was actyally achieving in life - Andy Goram must be shaking his head! Noboody liked a drink more than The Goalie but the legend knew his priorities! I firmly believe we will start seeing players come out there shell's now that Ferguson is dropped. I think he is the worst Rangers captain in my lifetime and defines everything that is wrong with the club right now. His negativity shows throughout the whole team. Now is the time to seen Davis and Mendes tick! Rangers have proved onces again that WE are bigger than anyone! Thanks to Walter for that!! I firmly believe this weeks events are a boost to the club and can see us booming onto the title!! Dear Barry and Allan - I feel embarrassed even thinking about what you did to the cameras - I have no idea how embarrassed you will personally feel! The word that defines you is idiot! You graced the tru colours of Rangers and Scotland and turned it into a laughing stock! Justice will be served if we go onto win the SPL title while you watch in the stands with your 2 middle fingers....and even better if Scotland go onto the World Cup! Step forward Davie Weir! You will wear the captains armband with proud and be a stop gap for the Queens 11. But you know yourself Weir will retire soon meandin one Magic Bougherra can step forward and become Rangers next captain!!!!
  20. Stolen from another forum - funny nevertheless - feel free to edit where appropriate and sent to SDM, C/O expensive chateau, south of france Dear Aberdeen Football Club, On Wednesday of last week I purchased 2 Adult tickets for the Scottish Cup replay between Aberdeen FC and the mighty Dunfermline Athletic. Having attended the fixtures against Bayern Munich, Copenhagen, East Fife, Manchester United (friendly), Fraserburgh (friendly), Liverpool (friendly) and Everton (friendly) in recent years, it goes without saying that the chance to see Dunfermline, possibly one of Europe's mightiest and most feared names, was an opportunity not to be missed. You can appreciate that finding the Ã?£21 (including a Ã?£1 booking fee) to buy two tickets was incredibly difficult given the current economic predicament our country finds itself in. I not only had to take on a second and third job, I also had to indulge in a wide variety of criminal activity (mugging old ladies, stealing from my friends, playing for Aberdeen Football Club and sending my sister out to work the streets) in order to come up with the required amount. When the tickets eventually hit my doormat it's safe to say I was so excited I nearly succumbed to a mild stroke......I was going to see the Athletic play at Pittodrie in the SCOTTISH CUP! How could I have been so lucky? Forget your Euro Millions....this was my dream ticket! Sadly this brings me on to the reason for troubling such a busy and professionally run club such as you. Basically I am requiring a full refund (including the Ã?£1 booking fee). Having endured what can only be described as one of the dullest, most limp-wristed, spineless, wet-pantied performances I have ever had the displeasure of viewing in nearly 27 years of being a living breathing human being, I would say that a refund is fully justified. I would like to back up my claim by quoting you a definition of the word "entertainment" (football is supposedly a branch of entertainment after all); enÃ?·terÃ?·tainÃ?·ment (ntr-tnmnt) n. 1. The act of entertaining. 2. The art or field of entertaining. 3. Something that amuses, pleases, or diverts, especially a performance or show. 4. The pleasure afforded by being entertained; amusement: The comedian performed for our entertainment. 5. Archaic Maintenance; support. 6. Obsolete Employment. Please can you tell me at what stage during last night's proceedings were any of the above applicable? Would you classify any of the following as entertainment? This can be argued furthermore with Darren Mackie chasing the shadow of his imaginary friend all night. The poor confused mind of Darren has an inherent suspicion of space and time. To Darren, space is a sinister creation of evil minds that are determined to imprison his precious talent. As well as this, Jamie Langfield was kicking like he'd suddenly developed multiple sclerosis. He seemed to have it in for two people in particular, (Main Stand just above the dug out on half way and the South Stand beside the fence). Was he auditioning for the new series of Ground Force? He accompanied each successful touch finder with a spot of landscape gardening around his box. Last night Jamie was a cross between Stephen Hawking, Bill Oddie and Alan Titchmarsh. There were also the two Professional footballers wilting under moderate pressure and missing penalties in front of their own fans. If Angus the Bull can smash them in why can't they? Angus wears silly wee foam boots and still rockets them into the bottom corner! Perhaps "Tricky" "Ricky" Richard Foster experiments with other forms of penalty footwear in future such as flip flops, clogs, hiking boots or flippers. Exactly what is he doing here? Clearly he's been spending too much time with Titters, Langers and Odders. Watching a six foot turd in a black and white shirt wandering about at half time, Dunfermlineââ?¬â?¢s mascot looks like the result of a nasty and painful trip to the little boys room. Why was he given permission to encroach on to the field of play? As well as this, there was the entire matinee performance of Charlie Mulgrew. For a ââ?¬Ë?manââ?¬â?¢ of such promising physical stature, why is it that opponents half his size and build continuously outmuscle and out jump him? I've seen a tin of sweetcorn stick up for itself with greater authority. Moving on to what can only be described as our game plan. Physics is a wonderful and noble field and has been blessed by such greats as Newton, Einstein and Galileo. These leviathans of history have given us theories on relativity, laws of gravity and kinematics. Now please step forward Sir Jimmy of Calderwood. Clearly Sir Jimmy believes he can defy the laws of physics and has stumbled upon a new branch. The theory of relativity states that E=MC2, where basically speaking energy equals mass multiplied by the speed of light. Sir Jimmy disproves this theory by stating that G=M2xLB/T which is basically goals equals Mackie squared multiplied by the long ball divided by the tombola. The laws of gravity do not exist in the Land of Jimmy. Gravitational forces do not effect strikers measuring 6 feet or less therefore balls rocketed skyward can be controlled and cushioned at any point during the balls trajectory. This eliminates the opposition selecting aging tall donkeys to mark our strikers. --------------------------------- Cammy F

  22. Anyone who knows me will inform you that I am what can only be described as a ‘music snob’. I am forever arguing that lyricists like Ian Curtis (Love Will tear Us Apart - When routine bites hard, And ambitions are low, And resentment rides high, But emotions won't grow, And we're changing our ways, Taking different roads), Morrissey (The Is A Light That Never Goes Out - And if a double-decker bus crashes into us, To die by your side is such a heavenly way to die, And if a ten-ton truck kills the both of us, To die by your side, Well, the pleasure - the privilege is mine), Greg Griffin (Sorrow - When all soldiers lay their weapons down or when all kings and all queens relinquish their crowns, Or when the only true messiah rescues us from ourselves it's easy to imagine) Jello Biafra (California Uber Alles - Come quietly to the camp, You'd look nice as a drawstring lamp Don't you worry, it's only a shower, For your clothes here's a pretty flower) - , Joe Strummer (Whiteman In Hammersmith Palais - Punk rockers in the UK, They won't notice anyway, They're all too busy fighting, For a good place under the lighting), Jake Burns (At The Edge - All your stupid hopes and dreams, Get your feet back on the ground son, It's exams that count no football teams) Jerry Dammers / Terry Hall (Too Much Too Young - Call me immature, Call me a poser, I'd love to spread manure in your bed of roses, Don't want to be rich , Don't want to be famous, But I'd really hate to have the same name as you), Paul Weller (The Eton Rifles - We came out of it naturally the worst: Beaten and bloody, and I was sick down my shirt. We were no match for their untamed wit, Though some of the lads said they'd be back next week), Mensi (Last Night Another Soldier - Now he wishes he never went he wishes he never thought of it, It's not the same as fighting armies looking for the terrorists, They're just facts and figures...), David Byrne (Heaven - The band in heaven, They play my favourite song, Play it one more time Play it all night long) and the combined talents of NWA (Straight Outta Compton - Ain't no tellin when I'm down for a jack move, Here's a murder rap to keep yo dancing, with a crime record like Charles Manson) were and are modern day poets and how those lyricist and their bands have defined generations and heralded the social awareness of their music. I have often argued the musical relevance of groups as diverse as Alien Sex Fiend, Gay Bikers On Acid and don’t get me started on the relevance and genius of The Cramps. I have been lucky enough to have been around the social scenes that have defined British music over the last three decades. From Punk, SKA, Oi New Wave / New Romantic through to rave, I have not only enjoyed the music related to those scenes, but have witnessed and wore the fashion associated with these movements and shared in the social conciseness of these youth explosions and the consequences of this in relation to football with terracing fashions changing as the musical influences changed. Over the years I have worn some criminal outfits on the terraces and stands from tartan bondage trousers along with a Sex Pistols t-shirt to baggy jeans, cool as fuck t-shirt and Stone Roses-esque floppy hat. Through following fashion in football, I am prone to the fashion of the ‘football casual’ as many a normal fan has due to it’s easy accessibility ; One True Saxon, Stone Island, CP Company, Hackett, Paul & Shark etc. However, I have a guilty secret, one that will demolish my musical credibility, I like pop-music. There, I’ve said it. Recently I have been listening to two popish artists Katy Perry and Ladyhawke. As a heterosexual male, you’d think that it was the faux-lesbian ‘I Kissed A Girl’ that has my pop pulse racing, but no, it’s Perry’s poptastic ‘Hot ‘N’ Cold’ that is currently doing it for me! [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-LhyAVzDBI]YouTube - KATY PERRY "Hot'n'cold"[/ame] My Delirium and Paris Is Burning are two fantastic tracks from Ladyhawke that are also on my ‘most played’ playlist on ITunes. [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LVnUwWRteaQ]YouTube - Ladyhawke - My Delirium[/ame] [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F1HDZNR9cY4&feature=related]YouTube - Ladyhawke - Paris Is Burning[/ame] Now, I thought that this was a new found liking for pop, but a scroll through my IPod Ã?© will reveal that I have, unbeknown to myself, liked pop for a while. From Abba to The Pet Shot Boys, from Girls Aloud to Sugarbabes, from Voyage to Kylie, Duran Duran to Human League, Heaven17 to Erasure, Culture Club to Japan, they are all there in all their pop-glory. Given this revelation, I tried to think back as to why and where this love for pop originated from. A school friend once said to me that us members of the male species had to ‘conform’ to the influences of our peers and thus, I was more than happy to connect with and gain my social conciseness from Punk / Skinhead / Two Tone and Oi bands whilst I was gaining guilty pleasures (that all youths must admit to) from pop music. Such profound words would not have commute with my drink infested brain at the time (Breaker lager and Merrydown cider have a lot to answer for). However, admitting to liking pop-music may be acceptable these days, back in the Punk days of the early 80’s, this would have been social suicide! The school friend who offered such profoundness may have had a point, but surely she (and by default, me) are reading too much into musical taste and influences? Isn’t all music there to be enjoyed (or not as the case may be) if you happen to like what you hear? As I have gotten older, my musical horizons have broadened but I still don’t get ‘Soft Rock’ or this new fangled Urban shit that is polluting our airwaves! Given this snobbery, I have found it notoriously difficult to bond with new bands and therefore, it is to their credit that bands such as White Rose Movement, Doves, Feeder and most recently, White Lies (who I believe are a wonderful band, writing brilliant songs and I hope that they continue to do so) have resonated with myself and connected with me enough for me to have actively gone out and bought their CD’s and seen them live! However, no wonder I am confused by my confession and musical taste for bog-standard cheesy pop music. How can anyone define their musical tastes and influences in a time where SLIPKNOT have not only become very listenable, but can be now safely be described as a very musically and lyrically as brilliant band (still not sure on the masks and uniforms though!). I’ll finish this article with the wise words of Greg Griffen and Bad Religion and these words are applicable to both music and life in general, something that Bad Religion excel in ; I don't believe in self important folks who preach no Bad Religion song can make your life complete you'll get no direction from me you'll get no direction from me Happy listening – Cammy F
  23. Anyone still a fan of this has-been old prick? No problem with his set-up in midfield and up front, but our amateur manager set out an amateur defence today. Who else should he have played in defence then you ask? Couldn't give a shit - McCulloch is NOT nor ever has been a defender in anyone's eyes other than Smith's, and every minute Dailly takes to the pitch in a Rangers shirt we are the laughing stock of Scotland. There can't be many arguments that at least a handful of our team are gutless wee gobshites (Beasley, Boyd - there's two), and the players have to take their share of the blame. But it is patently clear that Walter Smith is not inspiring this group of players. Fans are simply going to have to accept the obvious, that Walter Smith is incapable of winning us an SPL title. We are quite literally going backwards by the week under this charlatan. He cannot go soon enough for this Bear. The old git's only there beacuse of his pal upstairs, who himself is long past caring that each day of Smith's reign damages the club. Any respect I had for you from the 9IAR years has disappeared completely. You are past it as a manager and have made it abundantly clear on several occasions what you think of good Bears like me. You will not, under any circumstance, accept responsibility for any of our disastrous results under your watch, and you can stick your tedious media platitudes up your arse. Thousands of Rangers fans will look back on your second spell and view you with utter contempt. WALTER SMITH GTF
  24. RANGERS will never, ever leave Kris Boyd. Thatââ?¬â?¢s why Kris Boyd could never leave Rangers. The prolific Ibrox striker has a written contract until the summer of next year. But his emotional ties to the club will last a lifetime. Thatââ?¬â?¢s how he looks at it. How he wants it. Birmingham boss Alex McLeish came calling during the January transfer window and the hitman could have joined the Championship club in the heart of England. But it would have ripped the heart from him. Today Boyd, 25, talks openly about the transfer which threatened to rock his world. A deal which would have taken from him what he holds dearest ââ?¬â? his beloved No9 Rangers shirt. Ibrox chairman Sir David Murray left the striker shocked, stunned and GUTTED when he accepted a Ã?£4million deal to sell him on. But Boyd turned the move down flat ââ?¬â? because he knew life at Rangers is as good as it gets. He said: ââ?¬Å?I know there will be people out there questioning my ambition. ââ?¬Å?Birmingham is a big club and could be in the Premiership next season. Thereââ?¬â?¢s no doubting that. ââ?¬Å?But for me, if aiming to reach 100 goals for Rangers and playing every week with that No9 jersey on your back isnââ?¬â?¢t showing ambition then I donââ?¬â?¢t know what is. What people need to realise is that everything about me says Rangers. ââ?¬Å?From when I was a kid growing up to right here and now. Nothing has changed. ââ?¬Å?From my bedroom wallpaper and curtains to the tracksuit and jersey that I used to run about in ââ?¬â? it was always Rangers. ââ?¬Å?Thatââ?¬â?¢s not something which changes overnight. ââ?¬Å?Iââ?¬â?¢m not going to wake up one morning and suddenly think the club doesnââ?¬â?¢t mean anything to me. ââ?¬Å?It means everything. To give that up, for ANY club, would be difficult. ââ?¬Å?I simply wasnââ?¬â?¢t willing to pack everything up, leave Ibrox and go play for another team. ââ?¬Å?I grew up a fan and here I am wearing the No9 shirt. Why would I want to walk away from that? It wouldnââ?¬â?¢t have just been sad for me but also my friends and family, the people close to me. ââ?¬Å?Everybody knows I have a good relationship with Alex McLeish and that will continue. ââ?¬Å?He is the man who signed me for Rangers and Iââ?¬â?¢ll forever be indebted to him for that. ââ?¬Å?Who knows, I might work under him again in the future. ââ?¬Å?For me, heââ?¬â?¢s a great manager and someone who has always been very good to me. ââ?¬Å?But I just had to turn down his offer. It wasnââ?¬â?¢t the right thing for me, joining Birmingham.ââ?¬Â Advertisement Boydââ?¬â?¢s goals-per-games ratio makes him one of the most lethal and prolific strikers in Europe. But as far as heââ?¬â?¢s concerned life at Rangers is as good as itââ?¬â?¢s ever going to get for him. He doesnââ?¬â?¢t expect the Premier League big guns to break down the Ibrox front door to sign him. Thereââ?¬â?¢s only one way for Boydââ?¬â?¢s career to go when he leaves Rangers ââ?¬â? and thatââ?¬â?¢s DOWN. He added: ââ?¬Å?I just donââ?¬â?¢t think Iââ?¬â?¢ll move to another club the size of Rangers. ââ?¬Å?I doubt very much that Iââ?¬â?¢ll have the top teams in the Premiership coming for me. ââ?¬Å?If I ever leave itââ?¬â?¢s going to be to a smaller club. ââ?¬Å?Quite simply there arenââ?¬â?¢t many better places for a player to play his football than Ibrox. Add to that the fact that I wear the No9 jersey and it is everything that I ever wished for. ââ?¬Å?Itââ?¬â?¢s an honour for me pulling on that shirt.ââ?¬Â It maybe explains why Boyd has had the full support of the Rangers fans throughout this troubled month. AC Milan brought their biggest names to Ibrox on Wednesday for a glamour friendly. But on a freezing cold night it wasnââ?¬â?¢t Ronaldinho, Kaka or even David Beckham who received the warmest of receptions. It was Boyd. He was cheered on to the pitch as a second half substitute with the striker as popular as heââ?¬â?¢s ever been. But then the supporters have been vocal in their backing of their No9 since the moment that it looked like he could be on his way out. At Hampden for the Co-op Insurance Cup semi-final with Falkirk last week there was a huge banner which read: ââ?¬Ë?No Boyd, no goals, no title (again).ââ?¬â?¢ The striker saw it ââ?¬â? and he appreciated it ââ?¬â? and now he wants to repay them in the only way he knows how. Boyd added: ââ?¬Å?The fans have been brilliant. ââ?¬Å?Every person Iââ?¬â?¢ve spoken to has been supportive of me. ââ?¬Å?Not one person has given me a hard time. That means so much to me and I really want to pay them back. ââ?¬Å?The only way I can do that is by scoring the goals which win them the title. ââ?¬Å?I canââ?¬â?¢t imagine anything better than achieving that by the end of the season. ââ?¬Å?Imagine Iââ?¬â?¢d left in January. How would I have felt looking at the boys winning the league and not being part of that. ââ?¬Å?I would have been delighted for the club but gutted for myself. I couldnââ?¬â?¢t bear the thought of that. ââ?¬Å?We won two domestic trophies last season but the one we really want is the championship.ââ?¬Â But what happens after that? Will Rangers still look to flog the family silver in the next transfer window. Boyd fervently hopes thatââ?¬â?¢s not the case. In fact, he would love nothing more than to open talks with the club and sign an extension to his current deal. He added: ââ?¬Å?Iââ?¬â?¢ve stated that I want to stay with Rangers. ââ?¬Å?If the club want to sit down and talk to me about a new deal that would be great. ââ?¬Å?There is nothing I can do about that. Itââ?¬â?¢s all down to them in this case. ââ?¬Å?All I can do is keep giving my all when I step out on to the park. Thatââ?¬â?¢s my goal.ââ?¬Â http://www.thescottishsun.co.uk/scotsol/homepage/sport/spl/article2210739.ece
  25. KYLE Lafferty is desperate to put his injury problems behind him and return to the Rangers team as they bid to reclaim the SPL title. Kyle LaffertyLafferty has been sidelined since early January after taking a heavy knock to his knee and ankle in a closed door game at Murray Park. But now the Northern Ireland international is battling to make his way back in to Walter Smith's side as they aim to close the gap on rivals Celtic at the top of the table. He said: "It's good to be back. The injury wasn't as bad as we first thought and I'm back now and raring to go. "To be fair the whole of the first six or seven months have been about injuries for me and I haven't really got going. But hopefully this is the end of it and I can kick on now. "I supported this club when I was younger and I know how great a club it is so I want to prove to the fans and anyone who is doubting me that I can do a job for Rangers. "All I can do when I get my chance is to try to do my best and that's what I do every time I put on a blue shirt." Kyle Lafferty celebrates with Pedro MendesLafferty will aim to do that against Dundee United this weekend, but he knows that whatever team Smith fields, they will face a difficult challenge from Craig Levein's men. The Gers No.27 hit the net at Tannadice in December to earn his side a 2-2 draw and he is expecting another tough meeting with a side that have run Rangers close this season. He said: "They are a good side and we haven't managed to beat them yet this season so everyone in the dressing room knows what a good team they are. "I haven't been surprised by the challenge the teams outside the Old Firm are making because this is a good league, there are a lot of good teams in it." If he does get a chance, Lafferty knows it may not come in his favoured position - as a striker - but he insists he is ready for the fight he faces to earn a regular starting spot. He added: "The Gaffer has said that he bought me as a striker and that's my position. If I can't get a chance there in the first team hopefully I can show in the reserves what I am capable of. "Everybody knows what Kris Boyd is about and as long as he is scoring and the team are winning I'll be happy. So it's going to be hard to budge him but I'm up for the challenge."
