While most people would agree that it is horrible to see the demise, financial or otherwise, of a football club I think we a can all agree that Dundee United are an exception.
The way that Thompson acted when we had our brief hiccup was scandalous. This was a man who didn't even want Rangers to be able to play in the bottom division,
Now four years on, We are back in the Premier League, in a Scottish Cup final;possible Europa League next season and the future looking bright.
They on the other hand have just sacked 22 players, managerless and are the price of a pint away from administration.
I distinctly remember at the time saying this will come back to bite some people and that is exactly what has happened.
1.) 06 May 2016 22:10:53
Good to see that world famous humility is back.
2.) 06 May 2016 21:19:19
Well said 100% correct thompson is a waste of space had his own agenda against us backfired big time.
3.) 06 May 2016 22:38:52
JFC, absolutely spot on mate!
Now, how's this for an idea!? We buy the Arabs for peanuts, (not what that snake in the grass Thompson reckons they are worth! ) and send all our young, up and coming talent there on loan, gaining first team football, whilst gelling as a team, in a half decent league! ( let's face it, it's been more entertaining than the premier league this year!
Thus, carrying on the tradition of United being a feeder club, but this time around it would be benefitting us rather than the manky mob!?
Any thoughts on this?
Don't worry lads, I haven't lost the plot, it is the banter page after all! 👍🏻😂.
4.) 06 May 2016 23:37:28
Poetic: What do you expect? Thompson was a shark who took glee in our demise and wanted more of our blood. Humility doesn't come into it.
5.) 07 May 2016 04:29:51
Don't know about humility being back but its nice to see you back. Any particular reason for your hiatus for the last couple of weeks?
6.) 07 May 2016 07:04:16
Aye it is extremely difficult to be sympathetic when you consider how much enjoyment Thompson took out of our club's plight. Wonder if the patient would have reacted had it been his club in our predicament.
7.) 07 May 2016 07:53:45
I agree with posts I, e Thompson but its a sad day when
one of our bigger clubs are about to go under
some talk about creating bigger leagues we don't have enough decent teams in Scotland to create more than one league
this is only highlighted by the signing of a Liverpool
youth player for 25ok as great and before every one starts
I know you have don't to spend big to get good players.
8.) 07 May 2016 07:55:39
Even before all the stuff that him and Dundee utd were rats. Feel sorry for the players not their fault but he's sold every descent player at the club then sacked the manager lol. His father was the same.
9.) 07 May 2016 09:24:00
Jfc- Brief hiccup, Hahahahahaha
10.) 07 May 2016 10:30:34
Poetic. The most obsessed by miles.
11.) 07 May 2016 10:39:37
321ron, no mate we should let them fester away mate, do unto otheers comes to mind, or as ma wee granny would say, hell slap it into them.
12.) 07 May 2016 10:42:54
It is a brief hiccup in our long illustrious history tbh.
13.) 07 May 2016 10:44:06
Where was he in the aftermath of his club's exit from the cup? A bit like Tommy42. Hmmmmm.
14.) 07 May 2016 13:23:38
Alot of people took glee (rightly or wrongly) in your demise. Personally, I take no pleasure in a number of people being made unemployed - especially in this financial climate. I don't see why you should. I fail to see what it gets you. Just my opinion.
I've been around. And I was certainly around in the aftermath of our defeat, a few guys on here will testify to that. I came on, took my licks and gave you all the credit in the world. To be honest, it's been mostly transfer talk from there on out.
No need to wonder. I can answer that. If my club was in your predicament, I'd be more concerned with what was/ is going on behind my own doors, than the fact that some people were taking glee in it. As I said above, I take no joy in anyone being made unemployed in a country were foodbanks are becoming more and more prevalent. The fact is, and this won't be popular I'm sure, this whole revenge type talk is exactly why a demographic took glee in your demise. I don't say that lightly. My best friend is a Rangers man, and season book holder, and the goings on broke his heart. I empathize. I also empathize with all the businesses that suffered and/ or went under because of what was going on at Ibrox. Again, it comes back to humility. The team has down well, especially this year (so credit to that) but when your first instinctupon success is to say:
-YOU'LL PAY FOR X
-YOU DESERVE Y
Etc, you'll see why I think it's a little insensitive, and counter productive. You are starting as you mean to go on - aggressively. And that's fine - just don't be surprised when people then take glee in your demise.
Each to their own I suppose.
Additionally, if your last comment about "where was he? " is in relation to me, see above. I was here, on the Sunday night and a few days later giving Rangers credit and taking the hits.
In a thread about another team, you mention I'm obsessed. In the same thread, another poster mentions I haven't been on the board for a while. I'll let that percolate with you until you see the error of your statement.
15.) 07 May 2016 14:19:10
Keep it going poetic, it is funny, but not in the way you think. xx.
16.) 07 May 2016 14:31:10
If only we lived in a perfect world poetic. Everything you've said could be levelled at all the teams (including yours, in fact mainly yours) who laughed at our demise.
I think you'll find its out overwhelming success rather than our attitudes that brings on the hatred, all the most successful teams are treated like this.
I think after all the jokes and wild statements flung at our club over the last 4 years we are more than entitled to laugh at the likes of Dundee Utd and you's who were the most vocal against us. This is not revenge, it's Karma!
17.) 07 May 2016 17:05:37
Common sense and articulate well reasoned conversation will only get you so far I see.
As I said before, each to their own.
18.) 07 May 2016 17:55:53
Poetic: Difference is they are relegated, they ain't going to lose livelihoods anywhere at the club.
19.) 07 May 2016 18:05:54
Poetic: I don't get what you don't get, it's only a natural reaction after the way he conducted himself during that time.
20.) 07 May 2016 18:18:40
I really don't want to get into a debate about this. Half of you think I'm at the wind up, the other half don't agree. Fine. That's your privilege.
One thing though, my initial response was to comments such as this:
"They [have just] sacked 22 players, [are] manager-less and are the price of a pint away from administration. "
I'm pretty sure that would not only suggest people losing their jobs/ livelihoods, but also that you (the general you) are taking delight in it. That was my original point of contention.
But like I said, I don't want to get into a debate about this.
21.) 07 May 2016 18:35:41
Poetic: You are doing your best to get into a debate then, I know nothing of anyone losing jobs, I simply found them getting relegated rather amusing after all the stuff he threw at us, so stop jumping the gun thinking you know what we are all thinking.
22.) 07 May 2016 19:13:26
Does anyone else think that thepatheticpatient is a a closet United fan? I know they are their feeder club but this really has touched a nerve.
For someone claiming not to get into a debate, he isn't half getting into a debate about it.
If he can't see why we are laughing at United then he that makes it even funnier.
Like Cullin72 said, funny but not in the way you think.

I don't think you know what some of those words mean. I'm assuming as much - it's either that or your deliberately making mistakes. Either or. Good luck to you.
18 Mar 2016 14:06:40
With regards to next month's semi final, do people genuinely believe that Rangers can win? Sure, its easy to say that we have come a long way in a short space of time (which we have) and that they are not playing too well at the moment (which is also true) but the other factors and the multiple variables are going to make this game fascinating.
Celtic will be favourites; and rightly so. They are the current champions, the best team in the country and man for man on paper should be untouchable.
However, they are under pressure, big time. Not the best form from a team which has been more or less together for a couple of seasons at the very least;a manager who's job is being brought into question (rightly or wrongly) ;only one recognised striker, who admittedly is having a blinder at the moment, though lose him and what happens then? and maybe most importantly of all, a possible superiority complex which as we all know can be self devastating.
Will Rangers win? Let's hope so, I would say as a rough estimate its 60-40 in their favour.
Can Rangers win? You better believe it!
Warburton is a better manager than Deila (my opinion and yes he hasn't won anything yet but who do you think they would rather have in charge? ) .
Rangers currently, on their day, could beat any team in Scotland. I will caveat that statement with saying that if Rangers play the way we did against Dundee and Celtic play the way they have in certain games this season then we have a real chance to turn them over.
Waghorn would be a massive boost for us and a boost for them if he doesn't play, but there are others who can perform to the same standard in his stead.
Wallace and Tavenier have had good seasons so far and hopefully this can be replicated in this game.
My one worry is that our defence, and I am particularly talking about central defence, hasn't come up against a team with their strength, or a player of Griffiths' form and ability. Nulifying that should be a priority (though I doubt The Hat needs MY advice) .
Another factor is that there will be probably more Old Firm debutants on either side than in any game I can remember (thats a long time by the way) .
I cannot wait.
1.) 18 Mar 2016 16:05:11
Jfc, I pray Rangers will win, but I very much doubt it, they will be so much fired up they will come flying at us from minute one, , commons will be relishing this game, as will the griffmonster and broony the Ned, int'l be difficult for Rangers young players to cope with what will be an onslaught,
Maybe if WE dominate early play it may be different, I hope so, far too many on here who literally don't understand the difference in quality that money buys, its simple really, Rangers play some beautiful football, and may just be even better than we have seen, but they won't, no matter what some will have you believe have come across a side as, admittedly in a poor season, who have regularly played in European games and top league games, the pace will be ferocious, so let's just hope Warns has them ready for the onslaught, I just worry, a lot, bout the defences ability to cope with commons, griffiths, and probably Roberts, with Delia throwing button and that big donkey from man city into every corner kick, can Wilson deal with that? I hope so
2.) 18 Mar 2016 16:43:04
Tomtom, I agree we might be underdogs and have said many times that this will be a hard game. But this ferocious pace from top SPL games and european games? And expect an onslaught? Yes they will be favourites and have two or three really good players but your statements above are just nonsense. Not once this season have celtic played with a ferocious onslaught. Well maybe 9-0 v hamilton, but we are better than hamilton. This will be a close tight game. There players bar two or three are p! $$ poor. They don't fancy this.
3.) 18 Mar 2016 16:55:23
Ferocious onslaught! A thing that can't be switched on and off. Where was their ferocious onslaught when they were trying to get into the CL group stage or when they were placed in a Europa League group that everybody said they would easily qualify from? Where was this ferocious onslaught in their last cup semi final? Some people have just no idea.
4.) 18 Mar 2016 17:22:45
Brown is a workhorse and Celtic too his boots, I like to see that in players, but he ain't the most skilful or quickest of players. If wee McKay goes past him a couple of times early on Brown may be in for an early bath. In all seriousness look at the Celtic team How many are straight out and out team players? I think that's part of their problem to many paying for wages and not the team. I still see them winning and agree Griff could be the difference. Hope I'm wrong.
5.) 18 Mar 2016 17:34:35
They should win and that's why the pressure is on them. They are the poorest celtic team since john barnes era. We must be at the very top of our game no doubt, but they are there for the taking.
6.) 18 Mar 2016 17:14:41
Rangers on there day can beat anybody in scotland. but will it be our day. i hope so.
22 Jan 2016 17:49:11
I think it is incredible that some people are complaining that the club are not paying what they perceive to be over the odds for players. We are where we are because the custodians of the past did just that. The management is being realistic and consistently stating that value for money is the order of the day, and rightly so.
Think back to the days when we would think nothing of paying 3 or 4 million for a dud full back or foreigner who wasn't worth a fraction of what was paid. Scottish and to a certain extent English teams would up the price of a player as soon as Rangers were interested and we allowed ourselves to be ripped off time and time again. People need to realise that we are not in that place anymore.
Whether DK has the money or not is an entirely different issue. Time will tell, though I suspect we may be dissappointed with the outcome.
1.) 22 Jan 2016 17:58:40
Fans don't want 3 or 4 million pound players just want a better out come and help Warburton a bit more back wht he says and let us know whts going on a bit more as we deserve tht big player days are gone defo but just don't offer 150k for guys worth more tad insulting we don't need millions spent to win this league but must do something when we get promoted just don't really trust king a woulda rather we did sell the club to the American guy can't mind his name thts just my opinion.
2.) 22 Jan 2016 19:37:31
American guy just bought a club.
3.) 22 Jan 2016 19:52:41
A kin he bought a club was when he was interested a know it wasn't going to happen because who had there hands on the club but some 1 like him woulda been nice.
4.) 22 Jan 2016 20:53:53
Too many supporters living in the past, we will be back no doubt, I cringe listening to the moans about just pay the money, I bet most come from guys who prob don't even go to the games, we will go up, and as I have said before investors are there to take us to the next level have faith.
5.) 23 Jan 2016 03:59:17
Brian-P, I don't think the issue is that we will be back, I reckon that a lot of people are getting a bit fed up that after all of King's rhetoric and promises of investment there are serious concerns that it was all bull and he doesn't have or is unable to, make the investment that he promised.
In an ideal world many of us would be happy if we had a less controversial Chairman or at least one that was honest with the support, (and I have grave doubts about King in that respect) .
Indeed it would appear that most of the investment to date has come from other Board Members and wealthy overseas supporters while King gets all the applause because he is seen as a Rangers man!

Does anyone have any information on why Fraser Fyvie wasn't sent off this afternoon. More than a passing resemblance to Neil Lennon, I'm just saying.
Poor result, not the best performance. Let's forget it and move on.
1.) 01 Nov 2015 18:58:11
Constant fouling all referees have some they let away with it, Bartley made one tackle got booked fyvie made 20 fouls got booked once. Not biased refereeing just shockingly bad.
2.) 01 Nov 2015 20:54:45
Cee – same discussion on the other glasgow page. Put the bias shouts aside it all comes down to the guy in black. Managers, players and the media can't slate officials or question their ability and it isn't properly reviewed and if it is, the findings aren't made public. Officials have purchase on the strings that decide league and competition prize money places, they have a baffling hold on a multibillion pound industry with zero transparency or criticism at any level regarding their numerous poor decisions and the potential costs to the aggrieved clubs . Memory fails me for the exact quote but I remember a story a while back about a championship ref getting £200 a game and a premiership ref north of £800. It is still £133 and . gulp £533 an hour. For some its a second job! Till there is an honest performance review system, better training, candidate selection, demotion, promotion and dare I say it TV replay help nothing will change.
3.) 02 Nov 2015 07:20:18
I genuinely don't think there are corrupt or deliberately biased referees in Scotland either one way or the other, but I agree with rglen in that they must be held accountable. If most of us made errors in our jobs that referees make on a daily basis we would be sacked, simple as that.
The original post was referring to the two footed tackle in the last few minutes that caused the mass 'brawl'. How he wasn't shown a straight red is beyond me.
08 Oct 2015 17:13:47
There is an article on the BBC Rangers webpage by Ricky Foster complaining that he doesn't get respect from fans and that one fan stopped him in the city centre and told him he was the worst Rangers player ever. This so called Rangers fan is a disgrace and clearly knows nothing about neither Rangers or football. Hamed Namouchi and Nuno Capucho were the worst Rangers players ever. Foster is the third worst.
The poor wee lamb further complained that he was critisised on Twitter by a fan after a defeat by Hibs and his day out with his son the following day. He continues that if girlfriend Amy was there then they would get an ear bashing.
Good for you Ricky. Stand up for yourself and stick to your guns. You have come out of this interview really well and absolutely nobody could accuse you of being a whiney, spoilt overpaid schoolgirl who would apparently hide behind his girlfriend if sweary words get said.
Could you imagine this happening when someone like Jock Wallace was in charge?
Grow up Richard and concentrate on your football. Paying fans have a right to criticise and from what I read nobody was being offensive. The only offensive thing was your belief that you are above criticism. Far from it.
1.) 08 Oct 2015 17:30:53
Fans don't have a right to stop a man on the street with his burd and kid and shout abuse at him, fans like that are embarrassing.
2.) 08 Oct 2015 19:22:15
Talking of worse ever Rangers player air us Old boys would think Jim Denny. Correct me if I'm wrong.
3.) 08 Oct 2015 20:01:32
Jon Daly or Kevin Kyle.
4.) 08 Oct 2015 20:17:20
Cee, totally agree about screaming abuse in the street especially in front of children but this did not appear to be the case here. Some of his moaning was about Twitter criticism, hardly shouting in front of the weans. He was just upset about being called at being an imposter.
Wull, Denny was bad, was Gregor Stevens worse? Daly and Kyle don't count as they are not really football players as such.
5.) 08 Oct 2015 18:48:32
Cee, You're correct, we shouldn't be having that sort of thing and JFC, Yes - PAYING FANS, meaning they should keep it for match day, not when he is up the street with his son.
6.) 08 Oct 2015 20:51:26
Wull, Have always said Denny was the worst player I had seen then along came Faure he made Denny look like Bobby Moore.
7.) 08 Oct 2015 21:51:28
Was Faure not better than the Brazilian you had at the back around the same time? The name escapes me begins with Cab I think!?
8.) 08 Oct 2015 22:20:55
Cribari! Jees he was bad
9.) 09 Oct 2015 00:24:15
Cribari, Faure and Foster were all awful but who was the clown that brought them to the club?
10.) 09 Oct 2015 08:44:04
Ally mccoist, probably the clubs greatest ever striker and worst manager..
11.) 09 Oct 2015 08:06:43
Still better than your Brazilian though.Can't remember his name but it sounded like shite or something.
12.) 09 Oct 2015 10:25:21
Ricky Fosters burd is the singer Amy McDonald, it wasn't on the street he's hamming it up a wee bit, it happened during the Still Game live show at the Hydro, when a fan shouted Ricky Foster your S^& inside the entrance. I was there saw I was there and saw it all. Fozzie is a Rangers fan, he's just sour grapes because he didn't get a new deal. He does think he is a better player than he is. To be fair at his very best he could bomb a wing and stick in a cross, I wouldn't see he was the worst Rangers player ever. That honour for me goes too Oliver Bernard.
Among other disasters Beattie, Ostenstad, Faye, Jeffers, Capucho, Rothen, Latapy, Emerson, Mladenovic, Maniero, Muscatt, Letizi, Svensson, Velicka
13.) 09 Oct 2015 14:30:02
Latapy and Emerson weren't really bad, but Rothen was well named.
14.) 09 Oct 2015 18:16:14
Best team in years and we're talking about worst ever players ? U couldn't make it up could you

Difficult to gauge if this is a genuine post or not, I certainly hope so.
It is horrible to see any club get into financial trouble, we all know how that feels! but with Dundee United it is different.
They (he) were the loudest advocates for us to be kicked out of football altogether let alone 'demoted' to the 4th division so as my auld Granny used to say 'Let hell slap it into them'
I bet they wish they had 4 years worth of back dated Rangers matches attendance money now.

I may be wrong but I am sure that there is a UEFA directive in place since the 50's that states that no club can play league football in a country other than there own (Swansea, Cardiff etc in the English league prior to this coming in to place) .
This all came out in the 90s when we tried to join the English League.
Presumably this Atlantic thing would require a seismic shift in UEFA rules if indeed they have the appetite for it.
Personally I agree with the guy who says he would rather play against Aberdeen etc. Big European nights are special and if they became the norm then it would detract from these occasions. I know that there are financial aspects to this but that is a matter for the footballing bodies to work out.
Having said that, I also agree with the guy who said **** Scottish football.

Personally I would have been more upset/ alarmed if there HADN'T been some sort of reaction like this. As someone else mentioned, in the past there have been all sorts of bust ups after games, part and parcel of the game especially when you have fans in the dressing room.
Although we don't know the details, it appears Barton as the elder statesman is trying to get a positive reaction out of his team mates and it has gone sour. Big deal. The suspension until Monday probably indicates that it went a bit too far. Big deal.
So long as it doesn't go beyond this into the next game then fine.

I cant' see what all the fuss is about.
Firstly OP the Scottish Cup was never factored into the planning process and was a total bonus.
Secondly, as someone said, wait to see what pans out and take it from there, if he does a good job then he will be given a contract offer, if he doesn't (but he will) then we dodged a bullet.
Things are in better shape on and off the field than previous years and we have a reasonable chance at success next season.

Totally agree, we listened to what we wanted to hear at the time.
I don't think Forest fans are overly happy at the appointment, have a couple of Forest mates who are neither here nor there about him.
I had a look on the Forest site on this forum and Warburton hardly gets a mention.
Stubbornness and predictability is his major downfall.
