Rangers' 2019-20 Season. Standing up for fairness & integrity in Scottish Fitba'

Recommended Posts

The only way to get reserve teams into the league would be if the big2 were hoisted into some European LGE set up, what would that leave behind ? Can only see the spfl being regionalised before long, then they could use the floodlights for a local derbies midweek and hopefully an increase in attendances.

Livi, County, a cies, st mirren? , a few others that I'm not 100% sure about without checking.  Surely if it's meant to be their home game then their fans would applaud any decrease in our away support?

 

 

 

 

Not us. this season and last Celtic and Rangers were given 3200 tickets out of a capacity of 8000 so nowhere near "a majority".

As live on BBC Shortbread - the Scottish Cup Final of 2002.  The day my youngest was born.  I won't disclose the outcome* for those who don't know:

Enjoy

I'd forgotten just how dirty their team was back then, so much for their myth if being a footballing side.

They were absolutely brutal.  Sutton's bodycheck on Caniggia was easily a red card.  There's only one team trying to play football here...

I still blame Amo for Baldi's goal.  Sellick fans in full voice, though.  Who can blame them?

How highly was Amoruso rated by Rangers fans? 

I always seem to remember him being a bit of a joke figure amongst folk but I always rated him. 

Ferguson is controlling this game.

I was in a pub in Richmond (curiously enough called the Orange Tree) to watch Amo's debut vs 'them'.  He came on after Petric got injured and was a revelation.  I always loved the big man.

You're right about Ferguson.  Best player on the pitch by an HMRC's tax estimate.

Could be.  The Orange Tree was a Youngs pub and had a theatre upstairs.  Good boozer, though.

The Sun Inn was more of a rugby pub and was a little nearer Richmond Green.

Kevin McAllister made Amoruso look like the utter amadan he was. That was amusing.

There’s a list a mile long of players Crunchie did that to.

Ferguson is controlling this game. 

As player he could be an outstanding defender, but would occasionally get a bit big for his boots and drop an absolute clanger.  He started demanding to take free kicks, which 99 times out a 100 would end up in row Z.  After being relieved of the captaincy he seemed to settle and concentrated on defending much to the improvement of his game.

tldr:  He wis a kafflick.  Never liked the c*nt.

Absolutely no way would Ibrox sell out for a Colts vs Cove League 2 match though it may do for a game vs 'them' at the start of the season or if we were close to a title clincher so the idea that it's for financial reasons is nonsense.
I can see Craig Mullholand's intent - he wants to 'blood' players earlier than we do now and get them stepped up more quickly.  Let's face it, the 3rd and 4th tier is likely where most of our colts will end up anyway given how few move up to the first team.
OTOH 3rd and 4th tier football in Scotland is fucking brutal and most players think they'll be penalised if they kick the ball less than 30 yards.  Add in the neanderthal attitude of players and the mediaeval mindset of many diddy fans wherein, "half the wee 'h' b*****d, Tam', is likely to be a common cry, then I can't see this ending well.
On balance, it's a no from me.
I thought you guys enjoyed the journey??

Anyway, the C&R Colts won't be allowed into the senior leagues next season and if they were ever allowed in thereafter they'd be starting at the 9th tier in the pyramid system.
