  1. Have to say I’m struggling to think of any league games where I’d say we’ve played well , although there have been some spells in these games where we’ve been decent. Few and far between though, these spells. I don’t think we played all that well against a pretty poor Dundee United. It was a fairly comfortable win but we hardly threatened to score other than the two goals.
  2. 3. We won’t have Collum as ref in a league game again for a while
  3. McIlroy has been so poor that the he’s almost certain to lose , whoever he’s up against. Harrington’s maybe gambled that Stricker’ll put one of their top boys out first. So that they’ll have almost wasted a strong player to beat McIlroy , when in reality , their weakest link would probably have beat him anyway.
  4. It’s just a pity that the broadcasters involved , BT in this case and the BBC don’t take more of a stand against them. Instead these broadcasters seem to be prepared to allow them to discriminate against certain individuals without much , if any , protest. BBC Radio Scotland , in particular, come across as being very weak by still devoting as much airtime and discussions to them , despite being treated like shit by them. Personally , I think the BBC would be justified in keeping the reporting on all Rangers games , not just those at Ibrox, to the bare minimum ......the scoreline and nothing more.
  5. Agree with all that. And bear in mind that Hedges season-ending injury last season came hard on the heels of the loss of Scott Wright, who was our only other similar player.
  6. Bit of a stretch too, saying they failed at the last hurdle. They failed at the first hurdle in both competitions they were in. They didn’t clear any of the hurdles.
  7. The Red Shed singing “You’re just a fat Peter Pawlett” about Pawlett himself at the recent game at Pittodrie was quite humorous
  8. Agreed 100%. I’ve said for ages that McLean is not only useless as a radio commentator , but actually extremely annoying. With that penalty shoot out today , I had to try to work out whether each pen had been scored from the crowd noise rather than waiting for McLean to tell us.
  9. And bear in mind it's the Football Writers who vote for the manager of the year. It's not too much of a stretch to think that most of them see Scottish football as having only 2 teams worth bothering about.
  10. I doubt if Martindale was paying JET's wages. And I'd imagine that McInnes was involved to some extent in the contract dealings with Ferguson and/or his agent. I don't know if Ferguson's contract extension was made before Cormack took over from Milne. If it was during Milne's tenure , though , then I wouldn't be surprised if Milne gave McInnes at least tacit authority to give Ferguson some sort of unwritten agreement about any future transfer. All speculation and guesswork on my part. I'm pretty sure , though , that even the thickest of players wouldnt need his agent to point out that an unwritten gentleman's agreement isn't watertight. Ferguson doesnt strike me as being particularly thick. Comes across as having head fairly welli screwed on, to me anyway.
  11. Maybe if there was some sort of gentleman's agreement with Ferguson , it was done with McInnes , in the same way as JET's agreement/understanding with Livvy was apparently made personally with Martindale. If so then AFC could be taking the stance that with McInnes gone , all bets are off as regards the unwritten agreement with Ferguson. That scenario could well leave Ferguson and his agent somewhat pissed off.
  12. Barring another global economic meltdown , at least the timing of it means his value shouldn't be adversely affected (for a few months anyway) by getting injured and/or his playing form taking a nose-dive a la McKenna and Cosgrove.
  13. I mind thinking the same about Andy's comments. Also felt his pain in the same game when he said "I got a red card for that last week !!" speaking about a challenge on a Dons player that went unpunished. Can't say I enjoyed much of the RedTV coverage , but possibly due mainly to so many of the games being awful. t I thought Fraser Fyvie was , by far, the best co-commentator with Willie Garner being the next best. Shinnie was the worst commentator , with Rob McLean being the second worst
