Comment on History, Neighbours and Made Up News by RyanGosling.

I seem to recall SFM setting up a separate old club / new club thread for the discussion to continue, yet it seems that every second post on here is yet more evidence that Rangers are a new club. Is there really any point to this?! Everyone here holds the same view and anyone looking in must have seen the points being made by now. It’s like a broken record.

Cluster One,

You originally suggested that Rangers would give Kenny Miller the captain’s armband for having been arrested, as Rangers had “previous” on this. The “previous” you mention is that an influential player was made captain for a game when the club captain was injured, following an incident he was involved in when the other player involved was suspended. Given that the other player was suspended, it would imply that Halliday was the victim or innocent party in that incident. How that turns into “previous” in your mind with regards to a situation similar to Kenny Miller, a situation about which none of us know more than the most basic facts, is utterly bizarre. 

Mainly sounded to me like you were just slinging mud at Rangers. Correct me if I’m wrong and if there was a logical train of thought to your comments.

Cluster One,

“No. he will be given the captains armband. They have previous for doing this when a player has been involved in an altercation”

What previous are you referring to? Was it Barry Ferguson? But wasn’t that a different club? You couldn’t possibly be cherry picking the bits of the history you want to keep and discarding the ones you don’t could you?

Smugas if a football team with upwards of 35,000 season ticket holders can’t break even the problem is with the management, not the fundamentals of the institution. But progress is being made, and will continue to be made. One doing in a game today doesn’t change that. No question that the likes of King will have to be gotten rid of along the way.

It Is Better To Offer No Excuse Than A Bad One
Happy new year one and all xxx

Congratulations to the Scotland team tonight for a great result, looked like a goal would never come due to that intrepid crossbar but it’s great to see a Scotland side look as accomplished as we have recently. Just think where we’d be if we’d kept our concentration in the last minute against England!

Auldheid,

”Now on what is objectionable to others: songs that are inward celebrating might cause offence to others but they are the ones taking offence, it is not being offered to or aimed at them. It is something intolerant in them that sparks the offence taken.”

By your criteria above, it would be perfectly acceptable for a group of fans to turn up at a football ground singing “Ode to Isis” and as long as it was inward looking, it would be the fault of the rest of the crowd if they were offended. 

I usually read your posts with interest and respect your views, but I find this stance ridiculous.

Upthehoops, thanks for your response. I’ve recognised my club’s weaknesses on here many times, but the justification given for support of clubs in Europe here is always that they are the Scottish representatives, which Rangers were. You can’t claim (and I don’t mean you particularly) to support the Scottish representatives but then exclude some because they aren’t financially well managed. Rangers mk II have been run at a loss but have broken no rules, and are not the first club in Scotland or in Europe to have been run at a loss. Again, I have been a vocal critic on here of the Rangers administration, but if people are on here claiming to support the Scottish representatives but making an exception for Rangers then I say they are hypocrites.

Jimbo you were not as vocal in your support for Scottish representation in Europe when Rangers were (briefly) involved. Neither was anyone else here, somewhat disappointingly.
