Comment on Podcast Episode 3 – David Low by RyanGosling.

Hector a lot of people have posted similar comments, going back a while now, regarding the Ibrox support “starting to wake up”. I think that there are now very few, if any, within the Ibrox support who think everything is hunky dory and that the majority of the support woke up some time ago.

Easyjambo I’ve seen this being discussed here before and the question it always raises for me is what was the need for the newco? If the newco bought all the assets and paid all the debts and passed the last resolution you highlighted showing that they were the same entity, why not just pay off the debts and carry on? Was it because liquidation proceedings were already under way?

Regardless of the financial difficulties Rangers are in, the efforts which will undoubtedly be taking place to sign Kenny Miller speak to an appalling lack of any football strategy or vision. Signing a once very good but now pretty old former player, probably on tasty wages, with absolutely no resale value is utterly pointless and shows that under the current thinking both on and off the pitch Rangers sadly appear to be hell bent on recycling past errors for no discernible purpose.

Sorry if this kind of post belongs on a Rangers site rather than here, and I get annoyed when fans of other teams post such things here but I’m just making an exception this time, apologies. I know there has not yet been a suggestion that attempts to sign Kenny Miller for Rangers will be made, but I think we all know that story is coming. Call me ageist but a team in Rangers position should be trying to build a squad of young players to be sold on to bigger and richer clubs, not endlessly trying to sign washed up former heroes looking for one last big pay day that their waning talents no longer justify.

Rant over.

Great article that one John. Stein’s words and attitude to the game are actually quite impressive (I was born long after that time and given my loyalties am not overly familiar with the man!).

On reading it I was struck by a question though – how on earth, having produced a team which were fairly dominant in Europe for a few years, did the national team never progress beyond the first group stage of a World Cup?! Beggars belief.

Cluster One I said we’d remained competitive longer, not finished closer. At the turn of the year we were genuine title contenders and had finally beaten Celtic in the league for the first time since liquidation. We’ve fallen far away now but that’s what I meant by remaining competitive – previous years have seen us out of serious contention by the end of July!

Cluster One I’d certainly like him to stay. I think he’s done a great job, some fantastic results in Europe and kept us competitive in the league far longer than previous regimes, not that that is saying much. However I think progress has been made and have confidence that it will continue to be made. Celtic are not a great yardstick for Rangers at the moment, given how far ahead they are in terms of budget, but if you look at Rangers compared to others in the league we are doing well (or at least doing what we should be doing with the relative budget).

The Ryan Kent clothesline on Scott Brown was pretty outrageous, you don’t generally see someone so blatantly battering another player. One suspects a lengthy ban is to follow. 

Disappointing result for me today obviously but I thought it was a very entertaining game in a lot of ways, and momentum swung strangely during the match. 

I remember after the World Cup final in 2002, everybody was wondering what Materazzi had said to Zidane. Who knows what Scott Brown was saying today, but he clearly had a good script. It’s a nasty side of the game in my view, I remember it even from playing fives when guys would say horrendous things just to wind you up when there was no competition involved at all. I’m not defending Rangers players reacting at all by the way, before I get shouted down for that. For context I’d reference the Neil Lennon / Ally Mccoist situation a few years ago when Mccoist obviously said something very incendiary to Lennon and caused that nasty confrontation. 

Pretty much a league win today for Celtic. Do Hoops fans want to see Mr Lennon in charge permanently? 


JPP: Perverting Justice?
Allyjambo / Upthehoops,

 

I think you’re both mistaken. There may still be some Rangers fans who see Mr Murray in a positive light, but I don’t know a single Rangers fan who thinks of him positively and everyone I know sees quite clearly how he is the author of Rangers downfall. 


Fantastic Voyage ..
Upthehoops,

 

So what you’re essentially saying is “I think it is an absolutely shocking decision. Who are these people? I want to know who these people are.” I only highlight this because once upon a time a certain Rangers manager was pilloried from pillar to post on here for not dissimilar sentiments. And by not dissimilar sentiments, I mean I copied and pasted his statement above and it matches fairly exactly what you said.
