The Match Programme, Rangers News, The Historian and the Fanzines�


Recommended Posts

As someone who used to religiously purchase both the match-day programme and the Rangers News (I have programmes dating back to the 50�s and 60�s as well as most home programmes from the 80�s and 90�s) and Rangers News (I have most editions from 77 until the early-mid 90�s), I would like to see both publications give space, if not all control to the fans. This would mean the Programme and News would raise and address the issues that currently face our club.

 

Currently, neither tackles any issues that we face and with no disrespect meant, I for one do not want to read about someone�s dog who barks the theme tune to MOTD whilst wearing a Rangers top. Our club publications should be written by the fans, for the fans. It should address topics like the recent UEFA investigation / fine and allow the fans a real insight as to what went on there and what the club are planning to do about this in the short, medium and long term.

 

They should also carry in-depth interviews with the new manager and his staff along with the captain and players. The Chairman should also be questioned regularly on things like debt, transfer budget and process, the youth development fiasco etc, etc, etc.

 

I am sure most fans are more interested in the above than they are of what Burke and Boyd prefer for breakfast and what was the last tune that they downloaded. The Rangers Historian is a sporadic publication that gives great insight to the history of our club and IMO, would be ideal for the programme and News. Robert McElroy knows more about our club than most and would be ideal for writing his thoughts etc in the official publications. Same goes with fanzine contributors, these guys are fans and talk about issues that are fans minds.

 

The official web-site also needs an overhaul and The Rangers Historian MUST have a place on any official on-line site. Where better to give visitors an in-sight to our great club? In saying that, they must also remove the registration to the site as it is a hindrance and no doubt stops casual browsers (who arte potential fans) from easily accessing information.

Good points actually.

 

I think the subscription for the Rangers official website is a joke. Plus the lack of information on it sometimes really gets on my nerves.Plus a lot of it isn't uptodate. You can get the information on the fans forums quicker

 

I have just recently started buying the fanzines and rather enjoy them. It gives you more insight into what the fans are thinking. Just as the forums do. There was some really good points brought up in follow follow last season
