The Terrible Journalism & Tom English Thread


Recommended Posts

Absolutely no chance Celtic have had more fans through the turnstiles than Barcelona, Real, Bayern, Dortmund, Man Utd or Arsenal at this stage of the season. I could see it applying in October or something, but surely not now.

These teams average higher attendances in their leagues, higher in their domestic cups and higher in Europe. Celtic would have to have played quite a few more games, especially more Dortmund, Barca and Man Utd, who all average 75,000+.

Where did the expression 'through the turnstyle' come from? Is it another smokescreen to hide the minor detail that Celtic's attendance figures don't actually give the number of people that went through the turnstyle to attend a match?

Super Ally demands investment - http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/ally-mccoist-says-rangers-no-9992700

 

“Honest to God, I don’t think it’s rocket science. Until there is investment, I think we will be having this conversation next year and the year after. It’s a fact the club needs financial investment"

“I just detect the patience of the Rangers fans – and the majority are fantastic – is wearing thin. There wouldn’t be a club if it wasn’t for the way the supporters rallied in the first couple of years after administration and then liquidation."

"There were special circumstances for the club going into administration and liquidation. There was the crash. I know for a fact the debt at Rangers Football Club at that particular time was 100 per cent manageable. There were alternate motives or reasons for the club going into administration and liquidation. As you know the vast majority of clubs run at a debt. Rangers’ was manageable then.

Amazing the amount of folk jumping on Durham and Cundys stuff and saying it's spot on etc on social media. Mainly English but unsurprisingly enough the only Scottish people agreeing are once again, yup, you guessed it, Sevco fans.

I cannot fathom why these people hate everything Scottish so much and want to put it down. It's like they want acceptance from their British pals south of the border. Fucking cretins, nothing like a bit of jock bashing eh.

Erm, there isn't a club: that died in the liquidation process. The word 'liquidation' being instructive in this case. It died because the fans sat on their lardy arses and failed to raise the funds to save their club. 

Next.

There speaks Ally McCoist, qualified financial expert.

That is laughable.

"All I would get involved in is that it needs investment. It’s not my area of expertise. I don’t know what is, but it’s not that."

...in the same breath...

"I know for a fact the debt at Rangers Football Club at that particular time was 100 per cent manageable."

What a fukn balloon

It's certainly not football management either. Absolute imbecile. I'm need my garden levelled off, topsoiled, and turfed, maybe he can advise on that as opposed to this absolute nonsense from him.

Hang on...

ETA: What were the alternate motives or reasons? We demand to know.

The ramblings of a fat bigot. I'm not sure even he knows what he means

Gotta love big super Ally.

He takes an absolute fortune out of Rangers even once sacked. Then has the cheek to suggest someone should lose their fortune investing in that absolute clusterfuck of a club so that their bigot fans can lord it over Celtic again.

Why doesn't super duper Ally go round phoning all his EBT mates and tell them to donate the cash back to the club to help them out?

I'm sure all those legends the fans love to w**k over will be only too happy to help.

There's layers of hilarity there.

Warchest: 'It’s a fact the club needs financial investment.'

You let your club die: 'There wouldn’t be a club if it wasn’t for the way the supporters rallied in the first couple of years after administration and then liquidation.'

It's a conspiracy: 'I know for a fact the debt at Rangers Football Club at that particular time was 100 per cent manageable. There were alternate motives or reasons for the club going into administration and liquidation.'

They also are clearly further forward than after he left given they are in the top division. What an oaf.

It's because they're upset about everyone witnessing humiliation after humiliation after they enjoyed several years of lording it over the rest of us and mostly by cheating.

The structure of the country added to their political ideology (if you can call it that) makes this kind of response inevitable.

I am quite sure in Private that Adrian Durham has his "real" views on Scottish Football, perhaps they are the same as the bile he spits on his show but as I said in an earlier post 99% of the time he is reading from an agreed script to try and get as much bites, reaction and anger as possible in order to get publicity for him, his show and most importantly Talksport. You wont get much more proof that it is scripted, pre planned or talked about more than the rant he went on last night, there is no way he was able to ramble through that spiel in the time he did without reading off of something or getting a cue because it just didn't roll off the tongue as naturally as it should. They need to slate Scottish Football because it gives them something to laugh at when their clubs are failing, same as when it comes to International Football, it is just broadcasting to meet and satisy the lowest common denominator of human, anyone with half a brain would not call up and go on these stations, that is why they make you speak to researchers before you get on as they only want idiots on, people with any sense are not allowed!

Bashing Scottish Football is an lazy and easy trap to fall into but lets be fair, we get our nickers in a twist if the English Media do it but we are not exactly innocent ourselves either, I mean we all do it? If its not about conspiracies against us all by a corrupt Rangers supporting FA its about something else and that is a true fact!

Talksport is to radio what the most downmarket tabloid is to newspapers. It used to be alright, but over the past few years it's plummeted into the depths of clickbait radio. Desperately trying to be edgy and draw in plenty of calls to cover the fact that nobody is really interested in it anymore.

Pretty embarrassing how raging it's got everyone. It's an irrelevance up here, and designed for armchair English Premier League fans.

Who the hell is Adrian Durham?
I really don't care what people 'down south' think about Scottish football, I certainly don't have a rose-tinted view of the game but that's the least of my concerns.


I don't particularly care either. As a Scot though I find the bashing of all things Scottish very frustrating and annoying at times, has a negative affect I think.

Partly the reason why so many up here just think everything we have is shite.

Lots of people will just rubbish it like you and me but others will look at it and believe the shite they're spouting.
