i just ‘liked’ ecobhoy’s post (1.17pm) and just wanted to say that i don’t ‘like’ the demise of the scotsman… the advertising base has faded away (cars, jobs, property and more), the readership has collapsed (gone to the internet, or just gone) and people have been looking at the circulation figures for years now and shaking their heads… it would be nice if it struggled on to 2017 (200th birthday) but it doesn’t look good…

You have to wonder about a ‘paper’ that will absolutely refuse to allow the word ‘Sevco’ to be posted on its comments section, but will allow you to call Ally McCoist a ‘prick’!


Reflections on Goalposts
Dave King confirms that the Ibrox clubs raison d’etre is to compete with Celtic and that it is “totally unacceptable” to lose to anyone else.

‘Rangers ambition should not be to be slightly better than the teams in the first division.
‘We really have to have a team, next year in particular, which is strong enough to prevail.
‘We have to get through at the first time of asking next year.
‘We have to be in a position to go up to the Premiership and we have to be in the position to launch a challenge to Celtic.
‘There is no guarantee we are going to beat Celtic in the first season – infact it’s unlikely.
‘It would be a miracle if Rangers were to go on and win the league the first season back.
‘But, similarly, we cannot risk going to Celtic Park and being battered 6-0.
‘We can’t start losing 3-1 to Hibs and Aberdeen and accepting it.
‘Saying, “we are in a period of adjustment, it’s not too bad a season,” is not an option. It’s totally unacceptable.’

Reflections on Goalposts
‘ALLY McCOIST last night launched a staunch defence of Rangers’ plush pre-match preparations for Forfar.

And the Gers boss, below, vowed his squad will continue to be treated like royalty for as long as the club can afford it.’

He said: “I can understand people questioning it but it’s my job as the Rangers manager to give our players the best opportunity we can to perform.
“We are still Rangers Football Club and have always attempted to be as professional as we can”.

“That will never change as long as I’m manager”.

Spot the difference?
With acknowledgement to Angela Haggerty for bringing this to my attention:

Old Firm documentary German tv 1974: http://youtu.be/19j95pGNzI8

A fascinating insight into Glasgow in 1974. Jimmy Reid is notable for his incredibly accurate predictions of what was happening but, what I take from this is the over reliance of the power of the ‘Old Firm’. 

Scottish fitba’ is immeasurably improved by not having an all pervading ‘Old Firm’!

Discuss!

Somers’ sending begging letters according to Keith Jackson

It’s easily done. Too much champers loosens inhibitions.

I have to say, I thought Keith’s tweet on the subject was soooperb! 😆

What Keith (and other ‘succulents’) fail to acknowledge is that the improvement in the top flight clubs (Celtic aside) is precisely because Rangers aren’t there skewing the league with their arms race mentality to the transfer market. 

Clubs no longer need to try to keep up with Rangers fraudulent spending (and Celtic certainly haven’t been trying to buy success) so have been able to spend money on what’s best for them.

The nuclear winter was the one that Sir David Murray presided over!
