McCoist on gardening leave with McDowelly as manager (interim?)…

The Internet Bampots called that several weeks ago.

Will that make any difference to the team performances?
I would suggest no.
A new face/manager would force the players to play for their positions – IMO.

So Ashley is playing the percentages: TRFC ‘should’ qualify for the play-offs and ‘should’ get promotion to the SPL?

From what I have seen of TRFC in games so far, that is high risk: IMO the players will buckle under the pressure of expectation. But I could be wrong.

And will McDowelly boost home attendances?

IMO, TRFC will remain in the Championship next season.

Would you rather be the leader of a soon to be defunct Scottish political party…or the manager of a soon to be defunct football club/company?

No names mentioned of course. 😉

I would love to apply for the position of TRFC manager…on gardening leave.

I would be most happy to fulfil that role for a fraction of what McCoist is charging: £50K for the year should ensure that I never darken the door at Ibrox or Murray Park.
Cheap as chips… 😉

A surprisingly blunt / honest summary from a Gary Keown, with the final paragragh;

“…The cheers at the end were short and muted. Rangers announced over the PA system that there had been 28,053 people in the stadium for this bleak affair, so that, at least, gave us all something to laugh about on the way home.”

Are some of the :slamb: munchers getting fed up trying to talk up TRFC?

And don’t think there is any chance of Keown getting run out of town either… ! 🙄

Just a wild idea…

But, what if King declared himself bankrupt?
[Well in a court recently, he did claim he was ‘penniless’].

Of course anyone who knows of the glib and shameless one would assume King would have assets hidden, or in his wife’s name – a la wee Bazza?

Would bankruptcy effectively kill off the TOP sanctions?

At this point it seems that King’s reputation is ruined in Scotland – and with the bears and even with the SMSM?

King’s time is up playing charades as ‘the Rangers saviour’, and he must – you would think – be thinking about preserving his remaining wealth as he approaches retirement…?  09

Mibbees after 20 years of failure, the national team and the SFA don’t deserve a dedicated, national stadium?

And Hampden is simply not worth keeping as a football venue for mainly sentimental reasons, IMO.

CO, I think Phil’s scoop about the manner of Nicholl’s appointment deserves a: Wow Just Wow!
It displays how dysfunctional the management structure at Ibrox has become, and you would think, it is a massive red flag.
[Apart from having no cash.]

I also have my fingers and toes crossed that in 2018 my £20 bet on TRFC finishes bottom 6 comes in – with the help of an Admin. event.

[Thanks to fellow Bampots for the tip: interestingly Sky wouldn’t accept a £50 bet for a 150/1 long shot…]

All the best for 2018 Bampots!

And just have to add this headline from the esteemed DR, so it must be true;

“Bluenoses out of joint as Rangers pub to be turned into gay sauna’s bar”

Couldn’t possibly comment on the article…but a couple of sentences did jump out as sounding familiar;

“…Annie Millers was one of Glasgow’s most hardcore Rangers haunts and it was a real shock for a lot of fans when it closed last year.
A lot of drinkers were hoping that someone might rescue the pub so it could reopen as it was before. This definitely won’t happen now…

Guessing it’s quiet as the Bampots have been out watching the footy…or getting dragged around the shops by their better half for the sales ?!

Wife told me last night about the Dembele ‘sale’.
Immediate reaction was that it was nonsense from the SMSM.

There ‘could’ be some truth in it: e.g. an off-the-record tip from either CFC or Dembele’s agent, perhaps to simply instigate a bidding war ?

But, my initial reaction to any big story is to always doubt the SMSM’s veracity: the lamb munchers were exposed a long time ago…and it’s a surprise that the DR in particular is still on sale in hard copy format. 

If he is sold for X millions, how will the SMSM / Level42 spin that as ‘bad news’ for CFC…and bad for Scottish football ?  22
