  2. Have been sent an email from, erm, Paddy's Market informing me of an interesting Ebay auction with various items of Rangers memorabilia up for sale. This includes historic match tickets, signed player cards, rare match programmes, books, a superb album of press cuttings/autographs and last but not least a signed Willie Waddell handkerchief. I'm interested in buying a few items for our archive part of the main site but you may also fancy a wee bit of Rangers history. Auctions: http://shop.ebay.co.uk/paddys-markets/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=&_trksid=p4340 Gersnet Archive: http://www.therangersarchive.co.uk
  3. As well as the main site, we've also redesigned the Rangers Archive part of Gersnet. Essentially this is an online museum where you can view a range of information and statistics about the club - from fascinating articles about our strip's history to every single result and team-sheet from 1872-2009! In the archive, you can also find all of Gersnet's past articles from the last few years in one searchable library. Visit the archive now! http://www.therangersarchive.co.uk
  4. Guys: Hope you all received and enjoyed your all-new weekly email newsletter. If anyone has any ideas for that, or wants to contribute to its content, please let me know. You can view it here: http://www.gersnetonline.co.uk/newsletters/newsletter210809.html We're also hoping to redesign the main Gersnet site over the coming weeks as well. Anyone with relevant expertise interested in contributing to that, please give me a shout! Remember, Gersnet is your site/forum and we'll always try our best to accommodate your ideas, suggestions and feedback. We're especially interested in people who want to write the odd article and we have a private forum for those who want to share ideas with each other. As well as get the editing 'hairdryer' treatment from our peers! In addition, our Rangers Archive is still an excellent source of reference for everything to with our club. However, again it is only as good as the content within it, so we're always looking for new items pertaining to our club's magnificent history. If anyone fancies being part of the team that looks after that section of the site, please let me know. You can view the archive here: http://www.therangersarchive.co.uk Finally, please feel free to pm myself or the other admin if you think you have something to offer the site beyond the usual very welcome generic posting. We look forward to hearing from you! Cheers, The Gersnet Team! :spl:
  5. CammyF throws down the gauntlet to the club s he asks Rangers to provide a museum at last to celebrate our proud history (with valued contributions from the Curator of the Scottish Football Museum). http://www.gersnetonline.co.uk/newsite/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=772&Itemid=2 Part One ââ?¬Ë?The Scottish Football Museum exists to promote the unique football heritage of Scotland, to build and maintain a national football collection, and to educate and inspire future generations.ââ?¬â?¢ The above is the mission statement for the Scottish Football Association Museum Trust which through hard work and dedication has opened the impressive Scottish Football Museum at Hampden. I have a personal interest in this museum as my Grandfatherââ?¬â?¢s junior and amateur medals are now held in the museum and are occasionally on display. Richard McBrearty, Curator of the Scottish Football Museum kindly supplied detailed information that is used within this article and we at Gersnet are indebted to Richard for taking the time to add his input to this article and project. The above mission statement rings true when evaluating and showcasing Scottish Football and the same could be said for Rangersââ?¬â?¢ uniqueness and having our own museum is something that I know some fans have been suggesting for many years now. I believe that the first time I personally became aware of the need for a Rangers museum was after the tragic death of Davie Cooper. Many Rangers fans at the time rightly stated that a Rangers Museum would be lasting and fitting tribute to Davie Cooper. The idea of a museum has been muted and discussed at various AGMs, but as yet, there has been little, if any movement on this front. If you have been lucky enough to have visited the Ibrox Trophy Room you will know that there are many unique, interesting and quirky exhibits that deserved to be showcased in a dedicated museum ââ?¬â?? the ââ?¬Ë?Loving Cupââ?¬â?¢ instantly springs to mind. Indeed, the club feel that the stadium is a museum in itself and while that opinion has validity, we could build upon the existing tour by providing new stand-alone facilities for such an initiative. This existing tour has positive feedback but there is no doubt improvement, as always, can be sought. The best stadium tour that I have ever undertaken was the tour of the Santiago BernabÃ?©u Stadium in Madrid. Not only does this take in the wonderful Real Madrid museum, the tour is unique in-itself as there are no dedicated guides for the tour, you pay your money and allowed access to the stadium and complete this at your own leisure. All the exhibits on the tour and in the museum are showcased in Spanish, German and English. Real Madridââ?¬â?¢s museum is also interesting as it isnââ?¬â?¢t solely a footballing museum. Realââ?¬â?¢s basketball team are also well represented in the museum as are other sports like tennis and athletics. The history of the club is told as you wander through the museum and this is done in such a way that you leave the museum with all the historical information that makes Real Madrid the institution that they are. At the end of the museum, which takes up the majority of one stand, is a tribute wall that lists every player ever to play for Real Madrid and they are separated into the countries of their birth. There is only ever been one Scotsman to play for Real Madrid, a certain Mr John Fox Watson - 1948 ââ?¬â?? then player/coach and is credited as being the first British player to play for Real Madrid. . The BernabÃ?©u model is an example that Rangers could follow. Ibrox Stadium whilst being the famous home of Rangers Football Club has also housed various other events over the years; from the annual parades of the Boys Brigade and Orange Order to the Rangers Sports Days that were a highlight of the sporting calendar in the 1950ââ?¬â?¢s. There is some wonderful footage of the sports days on ââ?¬Ë?YouTubeââ?¬â?¢ and they did draw impressive crowds to Ibrox. All this information, photos and memorabilia will be currently lying around Ibrox somewhere gathering dust. We do have an unofficial publication, 'The Rangers Historian' that details our glorious history and Robert McElroy as well as the Club Historian David Mason would be ideal supporters representatives on any museum project. Ex-players, such as Sandy Jardine who is, according to Richard McBrearty, the Rangers representative on the ââ?¬Ë?Scottish Football Heritage Networkââ?¬â?¢ and has done a fair amount of work for that organisation, should also be included. There are also on-line resources that the club could use to supplement their official records. The Manchester Utd Archive site, the ââ?¬Ë?Stretford Endââ?¬â?¢ is a fantastic example of how fansââ?¬â?¢ hard work, dedication and love for the club could be used. Off course, we have our own unofficial and less complete Rangers Archive which is another empirical example of how much can be achieved without financial input. Richard McBrearty does warn that the idea for a museum would be hard to sell to the club as a money making scheme as very few museums actually do make a profit - Barcelona and Man United being the exceptions to the rule. Man Unitedââ?¬â?¢s museum was making profits in the region of Ã?£200,000 while he Barca museum has generated over 2 million visitors a year as a direct result of it being on the official tourist route. The same can be said of the BernabÃ?©u, this is on the official tourist route and, as a result, all tourist buses pass and stop directly outside the stadium. I have to admit that I havenââ?¬â?¢t managed to ride the Glasgow Tour Bus so I donââ?¬â?¢t know how close to Ibrox these go. If they take in the Science Museum then it wouldnââ?¬â?¢t take much to persuade Glasgow City Council to get the buses to go an extra mile to Ibrox? CONTINUES
  6. Over the years I've found many online Rangers supporters are interested in finding out more about their club. From the humble origins on the banks of the Clyde to the modern day status of being the world's most successful domestic club, there is a rich heritage for every fan to explore. As such, 2 years ago, Gersnet created an ongoing project to create a searchable archive of the most important club information - The Rangers Archive. Along with other contributors across the online community, we've sourced the very best sites, accurate statistics and interesting articles about a wide range of subjects. All the big names are there - from John Greig to Bill Struth - while our stadium's history is also discussed in full. Add in a fascinating source of published references and a statistics section that NO other site has online, then the Rangers Archive makes for essential reading for any football supporter. We'd also like to invite all fans to get involved! YOU can help by submitting: * Your own stories and experiences; * Photos; * Video footage; * Any suitable sources of info such as books, film etc; * Reporting site inaccuracies; * Providing appropriate external site links. To help your task please fee free to post on the main Gersnet forum. Our admin will answer any queries at the earliest opportunity and we can even offer registered users the chance to get access to the main site to add/change content in a real-time basis. This project is unlike any other online - even the club don't offer such a tool! Explore the Rangers History Archive now: http://www.gersnetonline.co.uk/archive
  7. http://www.gersnetonline.net/newsite/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=526&Itemid=2 Obviously not had a great time recently to work on this but have spent the last day or so updating a few sections. Any time anyone has any suggestions or ideas for the site, please give me a shout. Similarly, if you think you'd like to help me update/finish the more time-consuming parts of the archive, give me a shout by pm. By the same taken, because I am so buys nowadays with different work/personal issues, it would be great if I had an assistant to help with uploading the more interesting posts on the forum. Recently, I've been unable to upload a few good articles from folk so if I had a help, that wouldn't happen. Any such person would need to be online regularly and if you had a reasonable amount of computing/Joomla knowledge that would be fantastic. Again, let me know by pm if you fancy it. Thanks again for everyone's support :cheers:
  8. After a question from nokiss the other day, I finally got off my arse and put together a Recommended Reading section for the Rangers Archive section of the main site... Via the following link you can find just some of the sources we used for the archive (or for our general knowledge for many of the main site articles). Where available, I have provided Amazon links where you can purchase the books for some excellent online prices. If you can't buy via Amazon; Ebay and your local library are your next best bets for sourcing further information which I may have missed. http://www.gersnetonline.net/newsite/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=523&Itemid=31
  9. After another dismal season draws to a much needed close, Gersnet (in conjunction with the Rangers Archive) casts an eye over the main stats for season 2006/07. As well being able to view team sheets, bookings, scorers, attendances and referees for every game played this season, below you�ll find the final league table as well as some discussion and conclusion on individual player and club contributions. http://www.gersnetonline.net/newsite/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=418&Itemid=2
  10. Despite our well-documented domain name problems of the New Year, Gersnet Online continues to re-establish itself within the online Scottish football community. We are absolutely delighted with our progress so far and we'd like to thank all our visitors for their support over the last few months. Here's why we're proving so popular: First of all our interesting and objective online analysis of many issues that concern every Rangers fan has proven to be our biggest success. Since returning to the extremely popular NewsNow Rangers feed, almost every article we've written has reached the top 5 Rangers stories read by NewsNow users. Indeed, in many cases, we have topped the lists outdoing many of the broadsheets and tabloid newspapers who also post their releases daily. With no annoying adverts and the kind of balanced coverage many Scottish fans are looking for, it's refreshing that a voluntary fansite can out perform the high-profile journalists who struggle to match our NewsNow results. Our new articles comment system has also proven very successful. Unfortunately, due to misuse, you may find some comments moderated before they appear but we aim to turn around submissions very quickly to ensure they are published as soon as possible. It's always interesting to hear your feedback whenever we write. Unlike the major newspapers, all are authors are on hand to answer your thoughts on our articles. To that end, our friendly forum can often be another excellent way of putting across your point. All are welcome and although we may not be as busy as other forums on the net, you can be sure your contribution will be greatly appreciated. There is always plenty to talk about and we have a wide range of sub-forums to accommodate every subject! In addition to the forum, despite being in it's infancy our Rangers Archive section of the site is already proving very popular. It's a one stop source of info for all Rangers fans and we aim to keep it as up to date as possible. Finally and most importantly, we're always looking for contributors to every part of our site. Thus, if you think you'd like to write articles for release under the Gersnet banner or if you'd like to take part in the archive section, we'd be delighted to hear from you. Contact us via the pm function on the forum. If you have any comments or ideas on how we can improve the site please let us know. Your support is greatly appreciated. We Are The People! :cheers:
  11. As part of the Rangers Archive project, Gersnet Online would like to open the voting for 'Hall of Fame' project. Obviously, Rangers run their own official Hall of Fame but it would be good to get a flavour of what all online football fans think - as opposed to just Rangers fans and registered users of the official site. As such, we are looking for eleven initial layers for our inaugural nominations. In essence, a team of the very best Rangers players from 1872 to the present day. From the pioneers such as Moses McNeil and his brother Peter right through to Jim Baxter and Brian Laudrup. We'd also like to have two non-playing Rangers men to compliment the above players. William Wilton, Bill Struth and Jock Wallace canot be ignored and there are many more to consider alongside the playing greats. All in all this is a chance for every football fan to vote on their greatest bears to compile a list of the utmost Rangers legends. More news will be available on this venture as we proceed but after the initial vote we'll be looking to our contributors to suggest future recommendations with interesting articles and storis about their own heroes from every era. Please feel free to make your vote by email to wsf_01@yahoo.co.uk where once this season has ended we'll publicise the inaugural Gersnet legends.
  12. I'm sure most of you guys know about "A Horse With No Name's" fantastic Excel stats file available to download on the fine RM site. http://www.rangersmedia.com/stats.html Unfortunately, the legendary poster above is unable to continue updating the file and because of the obvious problems in uploading and downloading the 30Mb file after every update a solution had to be found to keep the file going. I'm delighted to say that Gersnet will be making a large contribution to that. Not only will be looking to improve the file in the next wee while, I'll be porting the vast majority of it over to our Joomla main site. The initial data transfer will obviously be time-consuming but it will be worth some hard work to get this stats archive online. After the initial work, it will then be pretty easy to update the stats in real time without the need for large and slow downloads. I'm pleased to say that gisabeer will be helping me out with this project. He has experience of similar tasks and the time necessary to help me keep everything updated on a daily basis. Bear with me as we get the stats ported over but getting the use of this file means the Rangers Archive project will march on very quickly over the next week or 2. Once it's online every Gersnet user and every Rangers fan will hopefully get some great use out of the resource which is sadly missing from the official club website.
