I know it seems a strange one but he got the shout based on last seasons performances…

So why not capped when a Jambo? Just asking.
He pulled out the squad for America through injury did he not, best asking some of the genuine Jambos on here how they rated him last season.

Regarding Ian Black.
Also, the match was played at Easter Road, and the fact he was a former Hearts player further adding justification.
If so why was Webster not booed? current hearts player also playing as Easter road and ex Ranger who might even have had an EBT?
Black was booed because he plays for sevco and if thats what scottish football has come to then whats the point any longer?

Whatever Happened to the Nimmo Smith Report?
regardless who was booed in the recent or distant past its still a disgrace that any man being asked to represent his country is booed for simply coming onto the park.
I well remember the old days and the abuse Jinky, Dalglish and most other celts got and I remember how they spoke about their hurt when it happened and that can never be a justification or reason for booing Black or any other Sevco player who is called up and accepts the request to play for his country.
Surely in 2012 we can all at least support a national team regardless of which clubs the players come from?
I know it seems a strange one but he got the shout based on last seasons performances for Hearts, where he would still be if they could have afforded him(which we all know is the real issue)

The Existence of Laws
While I am enjoying reading and listening to the fakeover releases I keep asking myself what is in it for C.W. who is without doubt behind them.
Obvious answer is he is trying to shake ”people” just enough to pay him what he feels he is entitled to but these people have no intention of parting with anything substantial and surely if he was really intent on going to court with this claim then all the released evidence would have a much greater impact there?

On the other hand what has been released so far is pretty damning on a number of parties and if this is being put into the public domain to simply frighten people then god knows what he is in possesion of that he is more or less saying he will progress to if they do not settle to his satisfaction.

I know one thing, if I was a Gers fan there is no way I would part with one more penny while this charade is going on and while I recognise fans thinking they are helping the club by buying season tickets a lot of people/bodies need to open their eyes, admit this is a new club/company and look at things from a totaly different perspective before this shower of thieves and rouges are allowed bring even more disruption and shame to the game in Scotland

STV – “Arnold Peralta and Stevie Smith are set to become the latest signings at Rangers.”

How many over 21 players are allowed in the SFL, or is that yet another rule that does not apply to Sevco?
I really dont care how many players they sign, when they sign them, what age they are or even if they can play as trialists until the ”ban” is over while Ally is still manager!
With a even half decent coach/manager they would stroll through the 2nd division with the same squad as last year(even if they dumped McCulloch and Alexander off the wage bill)
McCoist has shown himself to be a total fud regards management and coaching and as long as he is kept in his position Rangers will continue to burn money on players who are going to have little, if any, sell on value.

The Rangers are going to be in the SPL in the minimum time possible if the exist long enough, however by the time they get there they will have a squad of journeymen players and no money to bring in the standard they will need to be competitive in the top flight.
If their wage bill last season was 7 million and they were losing 1 million per month then going by the Sandaza published wages for division 2 and division 1, the new signings combined are going to add maybe 25 to 35 grand a week which could be close to an extra 2 million per year.

Its only weeks since they attempted to get rid of Durrant and Mcdowall to reduce the wages and paid off the Physio and Doctor? yet they are now signing players they just do not need to get out of that division.

I know the argument that its to sell season tickets, but without being disrespectful, there is not one player they have been signed I would cross the road to watch for free never mind paying for a season book.
I would think that if I had decided NOT to buy a season ticket for this season then the guys they have brought in would not have changed my mind in the slightest.

And not forgetting the most underrated footballer in Scotland in the 60′s and early 70′s.
One, Alex Edwards (Dunfermline and Hibs)
A little nark on the pitch, but boy could he play. Fabulous crosser of a moving ball, incisive passer and exceptional at dead ball freekicks. Would have had dozens of caps if he had played for either of the O.F.
Alex Edwards was a fantastic players of that there is no doubt but playing for ”either” of the old firm in the 60s and 70s didnt always mean you got international recognition, the entire Lisbon lion team including the sub got career totals of around 120 caps between them, this is a team of 12 scots that on the whole won 9 in a row, played in 2 european champions finals, beat some of the supposed best teams in the world, reached the semi final of the european cup winners cup before the 9 in row run started, and averaged 10 caps each throughout their entire careers.

Blue Ribands…themwhere the days…

Reminds me a my father who used to get really upset when the club biscuits (a luxury in our hoose in the 70′s) would tell my maw to buy club biscuits with the raisins in….cos he knew me and my sister hated anything with dead flies in it?

We were lucky in our house, we had an auntie who worked in the Beaties biscuit factory and she would bring home carrier bags full of chocolate biscuits, every time you opened a cupboard door biscuits would pour out!
I used to take them into school and sell them to the rich kids who got pocket money.
She told us it was free samples, but when I was a bit older I realised she was a thieving auld sod!

That is a desperately desperate level of desperation.

That one sentence just about sums up the football authorities response and actions this last year or so.

Desperation is the emotional state of despair in which a person feels a situation to be hopeless and without satisfactory options.
Decisions made in desperation may be more rash, impulsive, and inappropriate than those made in a rational frame of mind.
