The Terrible Journalism & Tom English Thread

Still waiting to hear what the ridiculous claims and strange claims were. It's almost like they're made up bullshit.  
 

More or less everything that formed the failed court case, for a start.

The only ridiculous claim is that the team that were bottom when the league ended didnt deserve to be relegated.

Hearts announcer Scott Wilson branding St. Mirren as "snakes" for not only voting against Ann Budge's ridiculous reconstruction proposals, but also because of 3/5/86, led to Saints blogger Cairter's Corner sending this printed on a t-shirt to the manchild.

Some Hearts fans just don't want to say something about Dundee being paid off by Celtic. I'm sure the amusing conspiracy was that Celtic would loan Dundee a few players and play a 'glamour' friendly at Dens.

Then there are a smaller number of Hearts fans who say exactly that.

Then there are a number of Hearts fans who accept that they deserved to go down.

 

There wasn't a perfect scenario since it was unprecedented, but it was the most democratic decision given all the clubs voted on it. I think that giving the clubs the choice was the best option.

Airdrieonians 1-2 Queen's Park (agg 2-3): Spiders make history to reach Championship - BBC Sport

"the first time Queen's Park have played in Scotland's second tier since the league was re-organised into three divisions in 1975".  Must have imagined them winning the Second Division in 1981 then (and more importantly beating Cowden on the last day to hep Queens get promoted).

This is the Daily Express, so I'll not post the link, however they have an interview with Graeme Souness..

To me, he's playing the victim card before a ball is even kicked.

I don't think I've met anyone that has "hated" Rangers getting to the final, or are desperate for them to lose. In fact the two Celtic fans in the tenement I live in both say "good luck to them, they've earned it". Will there be a few diehards? Sure, but is it the over ridding sentiment that Souness is suggesting? No, not at all. In fact, the only thing that is universal is the wish for their fans not to shit the bed and embarrass the country like they did in Manchester. Something that has been echoed by Rangers themselves, albeit in more diplomatic language.

The link to the highlights for all the goals from the weekends matches.  Watched it all earlier and then realised something.  Dundee Utd scored a late winner which they've managed to miss out :D  Straight from Clark scoring the pen to Hearts v Rangers.

Also Hibs only won 3-0 if you go by this.

Lmao, there's literally hundreds of posts on this forum hoping Rangers lose at every stage of the competition.

People are even writing fan fiction about it on a specific thread....

In an ideal world, the outcome would be Eintracht Frankfurt 3-0 up after 15 minutes, going on to win 7-0 or preferably more, Rangers reduced to 8 men as they heads-gone all over the shop and the Spanish police to kick the ever-loving shit out of the orcs when they inevitably start vandalising the city of Seville.

Or, Rangers to play the game of their lives battering Eintracht Frankfurt the whole game, 90% possession or so, multiple shots off the woodwork, several stonewall penalty appeals waved/laughed off, perfectly good goals disallowed, the lot. Eintracht to break away on the counter in the 98th minute for their first attack of the game with the scores at 0-0 and slot past the onrushing McGregor to make it 1-0 Eintracht. Quick shot of the Eintracht scenes before the camera lingers on McGregor's stunned expression for what feels like an eternity, alternating footage of the Eintracht celebrations and Rangers players slumping to the ground in utter despair and the Spanish police to kick the ever-loving shit out of the orcs when they inevitably start vandalising the city of Seville.

I think that says more about the people who post on here, than any underlying pervasiveness of the general public. ;)

If anything, I've actually been pleasantly surprised at the attitude of non-Rangers fans that I've spoken to (IRL that is).

I’ll be honest, sourness has me spot on. 

It makes me quite Ill to see them in this final and I hope they get absolutely slaughtered.

Souness reminds me of a smug uncle who has lived in England for most of his life and still thinks he knows whats good for Scotland because he reads about it in the Daily Mail.

He probably thinks Everton fans should be rooting for Liverpool against Real Madrid.

Fucking tool.

Surprised at the fuss about the Souness thing. It's fairly obvious most people want Rangers to lose. They're a horrible football club supported - generally - by deranged bigots. Who the f**k would want them to win?

That said, I've been surprised at my own general lack of giving a f**k. The whole run has more or less passed me by. Might watch the final, might not.

I don't mind seeing other Scottish teams make a European final.

The only one I'd actually want to win a European Final is Dundee United, so yes, I hope they get absolutely fucking hammered on Wednesday.
