  1. I have no doubt that there were more than eight instances of "cunty behaviour" tonight. I also think it is 100% certain that there were nowhere near enough examples of "cunty behaviour" that would lead me to write off half a city. My general take on this is that there definitely is a number of people who attach themselves to Rangers and use the events surrounding that for unacceptable behaviour. I have no idea how large that number is (and I've no idea how anyone could even measure such a thing), but the idea that it's a "majority" or a "decent chunk", as has been claimed by different posters in the last few pages, is clearly wrong. At least, by my definition of those words. My immediate suspicion of those people is that they're only really interested in point scoring. Here's the thing though, there isn't really anything that you, me or Rangers can do about folk like that. Most of these people are a product of their environment. It's not a Rangers problem - it's a Glasgow problem. In particular, three main contributory factors that I would pinpoint are i) the levels of poverty in some parts of the city, ii) the extremely poor levels of education in those parts of the city, and iii) the culture among a (decreasing) number of young people in Glasgow that makes them think that they need to give folk from a different scheme a smack. The reason for that line of thinking is that anyone who's been to other non-football events in Glasgow that attracts a similar profile of people - TRNSMT is the obvious example - will know that you see similar behaviour there. There are loads of normal people who one minute will (correctly) identify that Glasgow has a decades-long poverty issue in the city that must be rectified, and then in the next minute howl in anguish or laughter at the scenes developing in front of them, considering them to be an inexplicable phenomenon that only occurs because the Rangers support is full of the dregs of society. Well, no. What you're actually seeing is the product of that decades-long poverty problem manifesting itself, you just haven't stopped to think about it. What really pisses me off about it is when I see loads of middle-class gentrifiers laughing or tagging in their local MSPs about it demanding that the cops wade in. You people literally do not understand the city you live in and it's history. You also do not understand that the only way of stopping this is lifting these people out of poverty. You're tagging in your MSP asking him why he hasn't personally picked up a baton to smack these people around instead, because that makes you feel better about yourself. Well done. It reminds me of the same kind of folk who used to get a kick from watching The Scheme. tl;dr this element does exist, it's nowhere near as big as some people make it out to be, the only people who can really sort it are too busy telling the police to wade in, this is my last post concerning this subject because my rewatch of the game today has just reached the point of Defoe's goal, and I've already spent way too long talking about a subject that most folk aren't really interested in.
  2. *shrugs* I mean, I guess it depends on how you define a "large number" isn't it. I wouldn't have said eight instances of fighting involved a "large number" of the thousands of people that attended, and then used that to draw inferences about tens of thousands more that weren't even there, but I appreciate the term is subjective!
  3. There's no doubt in my mind that some folk use Rangers and events surrounding Rangers for scrapping etc. I've met and seen plenty of those people. They're the same folk that buy the orange scarves from the street vendors despite not knowing the first thing about Northern Ireland. Those kinds of lads. I still don't think eight separate instances of fighting is really enough to write off half a city.
  4. I dunno mate, I'm not sure writing off half of Glasgow as scum simply because a very small number of people (went out looking for a scrap/got extremely pished and aggressive/whatever your theory is for it) is correct, but hey, what would I know, I'm just scum!
  5. I agree with this. @alta-pete simply must condemn these scenes, otherwise he's basically confirming that he thinks fighting is good actually
  6. Domestically aye. Overall, we also failed to score in the second leg of the Slavia game.
  7. I'm having a rare day mate. FaceTimed my dad and brother throughout the match and trophy presentation, spent hours just talking about the best bits from a truly unforgettable season (my personal highlight was that 4-3 Antwerp game - utterly ridiculous game of football). Now I'm going through all the pictures and videos from it with a rather lovely bottle of whisky beside me. Here's another one I really like: https://twitter.com/i/web/status/1393633853185662981
  8. i dunno mate, i'm not sure sharing photos taken by a peeping tom is really owning us tbh
  9. yes, i have no doubt that you consider such behaviour beneath you
  10. ignore them mate, it's actually very normal behaviour to be sharing pictures of females urinating.
