It's real paranoid OF shite. Very few actually care.

I mind my brother telling me he was working in the West Coast when Aberdeen won the ECWC in '83, and he said more than half the pub didn't want Aberdeen to win. I saw the same when at College when Utd were in that Final in 87. 

Even in a small country, club tribalism usually surmounts any real idea of altruism. 

Hope they get fucked 😉

For the avoidance of any shred of doubt, everyone thinks they’re absolute, utter scum.

And for very good reason.

I sincerely hope they do their usual & cause mayhem and show themselves in their true light.

Can't agree with this.  Unfair on everyone else that would be caught up in it.

The highlighted bit is completely correct.

 

Hopefully there is no trouble for the fine city of Sevilla to deal with but no doubt there will be.

Of course there will be bother, especially if Sevco don't win, but between the Eintracht lads and the Guardia Civil, the Ibrox bigots will be put back in their box.

First time I've seen this version of the story. Good-natured Rangers fans (oxymoron) in joyful mood brutalised by Franco's  panic-stricken stormtroopers.

Rangers were given a two-year European ban – later reduced to one year – because of their fans’ behaviour. Was it deserved? Well, there was certainly some drunkenness but when we arrived the atmosphere in the city had been a happy carnival one. And there were no pitched battles with rival fans because there were none there to fight with. It was the sudden, panic-stricken actions of the police that was the main cause of the battle and that certainly did not justify a ban that meant Rangers could not defend the trophy they had played their hearts out to win.

That's never stopped them before, they usually fight amongst themselves, just look back to last season when they won the league and stopped 10iar, pictures and videos posted on here of them fighting one another in the streets of Glasgow. Small minority of course. Sevco fans spewing up and soiling themselves too, yeah Seville is in for a right treat.

Or Craig simply couldn't br arsed with the tedium of going back to the points of a court case just to satisfy your weird obsession from two years ago.

Move the f**k on man. You'll be happier for it.

So still **** all to justify why Scottish football, almost alone, couldn't complete the season.

I mean, it was pretty poor. But ultimately, we're absolutely fine.

We've cruised to third, we're off to Hampden on Saturday, we'll be watching our team play in Europe at least right up until Santa's getting ready to do his stuff.

What did we lose? A closed-door season that will be memorable to pretty much nobody?

The best revenge is living well, and Hearts have responded to what happened in the best possible way.

Aye we are fine. We used the shambles Scottish football created to get stronger. Doesn't change the fact it was an absolute shambles.

Hope there is no trouble but can't see Rangers fans not embarrassing themselves. I hope they get absolutely pumped as they're a club that have spent as long as anyone can remember pushing bigotry and trying to profit from it, they also have a very large proportion of bigots in their support.

Playing top flight football matches wasn't permitted in Scotland until mid-July (and lower league matches until September) and the season had to be completed by the end of July to comply with UEFA.
