Comment on Good Try Mr. McKenzie by jimbo.

A bit of a dilemma for the Ibrox board, What do we do about Warburton & Weir?  It’s now patently obvious that Warburton has lost the support of the fans.  Article after article on New Now confirm this.  Even the SMSM are asking the question now!

But the thing is he is contracted to the summer of 2019.  So even if they allow him to stay until the end of the season, it’s going to cost them a pretty penny to sack him/them.  And rumours abound that he is still owed £500k bonus for his accomplishments last season.

Of course they will need a replacement.  McInnes or Wright would seem obvious fan choices, but again both these managers are tied to their current clubs until 2019.  So a fair bit of compensation required there. I don’t think Barry Ferguson would be serious contender.

The problem is the sale of season tickets for next season.  Someone mentioned today there could be a drop in the region of 10k if there is not a change in the management team.  Maybe that would alter if they win the Scottish Cup. But I don’t t think if they qualify for the Europa – and are allowed to compete in it – that will change the minds of the fans.  They don’t trust him domestically so why would they want him leading the way in Europe, where he has no experience.

What to do, what to do!

(Oh for a war chest!)

Well it was an interesting weekend of football, but being respectful of the site’s parameters I will keep to the MSM.  I liked this headline:

“Manchester City 2-1 Swansea City: Jesus the saviour for Guardiola’s side ”

I thought Jesus was a Celtic supporter?.  So don’t believe everything you read in the press!  21

These decisions all even out over the course of a season.  So I’ve been told. ( I thought we’d go down to ten men)

Rangers aren’t the only ones with problems you know! We had to start a game today without a striker for goodness sake!  OK we brought one on the second half and he scored a hat trick but it’s not easy!

Dom16,  Was thinking about Christmas decorations today.  I took mine down.  Most neighbours have done the same.  Nowadays with the huge build up to Christmas from November we are ready to put it behind earlier than in the past.  It used to be customary to keep decorations up until 5 Jan. ‘Epiphany Eve’ or ‘twelfth night’.  It’s good to see them go up but good to see them put away for another year!
(Merry Christmas).

Historical / hysterical January transfers:
Jean-Alain Boumsong (Rangers to Newcastle £8m, 2005)
This was a strange signing on many levels, with Newcastle paying Rangers £8m for Boumsong’s services just a few months after he’d been available on a free.

The Newcastle manager?  G. Souness! 21

(Think he received an EBT after it)

Just dawned on me it might be easier to just disable the thumb down button rather than introducing a LIKE button.

The thumbs down misuse mystifies me.  It happens often.  I wish we had a simple LIKE button with no dislike option.  You either vote for a post in a positive way or scroll past.  I know it would sacrifice the option of registering a strong disagreement in points of principle, but worth it I think. 

It would take away the perverse satisfaction of these trolls.  Besides, our great posters are very able to counter any dubious posts with logical counter arguments. (Which can then be LIKED)
