All the naysayers doom mongers out on force .
Hagi has been great last few weeks. but apparently now needs to be binned.
All the' Helander better than Balogun' posts after the last couple of games. now Helander needs to be binned .

And Tavernier what a season he's had . but a couple of 'low key performances' and all that is quickly forgotten by some .
I'm really beginning to think that our stadium being closed to fans is a blessing to the players. all the ones who will be moaning from the stands if we are not 3-0 up within the first 20 minutes brigade.
Surely our players are allowed a little leeway after the credits they have built up this season.?


1.) 08 Feb 2021 17:53:52
I think lots of comments are because of what we've done so far this season, and everyone's just wanting it over the line now after these years of frustration. We were putting everyone to the sword and its frustration at a few below par games. It's hard to be patient, but sunday will probably be the kick up the proverbial we need for the next few games. Onwards and upwards!

2.) 08 Feb 2021 19:03:36
There isn’t any doubt whatsoever that the lack of fans has made a massive difference to certain players, particularly at ibrox,
However yesterday was about bottle and fight,

And you must be on a different site if your hearing such slaughter, football fans pay all they’re lives to say what they feel

Take that away and you have nothing, absolutely nothing, so if you don’t like people who criticise, your in the wrong game, football players in the main couldn’t care less about sites like this, they probably join in and slaughter other players, but money is everything today, they won’t worry too much about criticism, but fans pay for the right to talk, and they should be allowed that.

3.) 08 Feb 2021 19:35:51
Where are all these posts? Think I only saw one guy say Balogun is better than Helander.

4.) 08 Feb 2021 19:35:54
Helander is a much better defender than Balogun. Balogun is faster but in my opinion Helander is better positionally, in the air and at reading the game. He played well yesterday and threw himself in front of plenty of shots. Mcgregor and Helander were 2 of the players with pass marks from the Hamilton game.

5.) 08 Feb 2021 19:39:34
Arcadia72, the majority of moaners, naysayers, doom-mongers and negative ninnies who post on here couldn't find Ibrox on a map, mate, never mind go to games.

6.) 08 Feb 2021 18:42:47
I haven’t seen anyone say hagi needs binned.

7.) 08 Feb 2021 18:42:56

Tavernier has been very average since the turn of the year and was posted missing at their goal. He obviously wasn’t the only one to play poorly however i don’t think he is captain material and did nothing to gee up the players yesterday. Can’t imagine Grieg, Gough or Ferguson putting up with such an abject performance. McGregor seemed to be the only player who cared yesterday until Davis and Jack came on. Yeah the team have been exceptional so far but performances like that will lead to drop points and the last thing you want is them getting even a sniff of a chance.

8.) 08 Feb 2021 18:43:46
Tav has been poor for atleast a month now and he still has had a great season don’t get me wrong but if players take the plaudits then they need to take criticism also it works both ways.

9.) 08 Feb 2021 20:27:52
Arcadia I agree with you 100% some of the noises at Ibrox when not playing great . and a sad reflection of this site . ok peoples opinions blah blah.
The manliest gave put up a new massive sign in their shop . It reads Supporters support.
Read someone saying on here that Kent has no end product lol . at the weekend o watched his goals against Aberdeen. braga . Celtic .
Pure class in my opinion.

10.) 08 Feb 2021 20:35:09
People are allowed there own opinion eh or does every1 have to agree with only your opinion.

11.) 08 Feb 2021 22:13:25
Mols I’m assuming your on about me 😂 have you looked at Kent’s numbers (His end product) over the last 3 seasons? Genuine question?

12.) 08 Feb 2021 22:21:56
Who you talking about dd? Who said only they’re opinion mate, because you do understand I certainly didn’t say that.

13.) 08 Feb 2021 23:09:15
The thing about Tav is, He is chasing a big goal tally. It's the 93rd minute and he's up the right wing when he should have been closing the game down.

14.) 09 Feb 2021 00:36:27
Agreed blacky he seems more interested in his goals tally now than anything else. Gsve away a goal when 2 up and s man up away to the sheep getting caught in the aberdeen half chasing a goal. Caught miles up yday when a goal up in injury time. And before people say that's how gerrard wants him to play, it's the last min of game, just hold your position and see the game out absolutely no need to go chasing a goal at that stage of game.



17 Dec 2020 07:40:17
To all those saying that the same players should be turning out game after game. it's squad game. and if the same 12/ 13 players turn out game after game there WILL be guaranteed burn out later on in the season. Frank Lampard explained away Chelsea's defeat at the weekend by saying his team look jaded. and Lampard has been changing his team and can pick from a bigger squad than ours.
Let's hope our team can pick up the pieces. and go again.


1.) 17 Dec 2020 08:13:04
Spot on buddy 👍.

2.) 17 Dec 2020 09:57:48
Too many players last night had an off day!



01 Dec 2020 10:01:12
All this readiness by some on here to highlight the meltdown and vitriol being heaped upon Lennon as exemplifying a night and day perspective about how we as Rangers supporters are different in how we conduct our affairs.

This notion of a band of bears who stand together in adversity.? well. we set a world record for attendance at a lower tier league football match (anywhere in the world! ) when we hit rock bottom which was great.

But I remember the vitriol directed by some on here towards Ally Mc Coist during his latter days as manager some even suggesting that he had forfeited his legendary status with the club because of his perceived managerial failings.

Also the level of vitriol being heaped upon Stevie G on this site after our Scottish Cup reverse v Hearts last season. you know who you are. but now all conveniently forgotten.


1.) 01 Dec 2020 10:30:52
Yes, I remember when some vented their anger towards Ally and Gerrard on here and other forums/ platforms (I was one of them), but I must have missed the protests outside Ibrox and our players cars being targeted because of the frustrations we were feeling? Oh, and was there ever any instance when our club felt the need to bulk up on security to protect our players fearing further attacks? No, there wasn't!
Different ball game all together mate, and an insult to fellow Rangers fans when your trying to draw parallels to what's happening at Celtic!

2.) 01 Dec 2020 10:43:55
I didn't see any Rangers fans launching barriers at the Police though?
And the Tim's have had 8 weeks of bad results - we've endured 8 long years to get back challenging for titles. Their obsession with stoping 55 is fuelling their rage with is embarrassing and cringe worthy for a team that has won 11 out of the past 11 trophies!
So if you think a few words on here is the same as the actions outside Celtic Park, then God help us!

3.) 01 Dec 2020 10:55:22
Agreed Arcadia, we need to bite our lip here (well some do! )
Also shouting about winning this and that, also needs tempered down.
At least wait till end of January.

4.) 01 Dec 2020 11:13:17
Correct Arcadia 72👍👍 where are the gerrard out campaigners now and you're spot on, they know who they are alright! 🤔.

5.) 01 Dec 2020 11:25:20
Although it isn't as bad etc but we did have fans try storm our player of the year awards a few years back. Its moronic whichever way you look at it tbh.

6.) 01 Dec 2020 11:47:17
SGL! How dare you and Arcadia liken what some say on here to the Celtic players being abused and attacked in person! Shame on you both!
Both of you owe your fellow Rangers fans an apology!

7.) 01 Dec 2020 12:11:36
Of course there is no equivalence to individuals 'sounding off' on a fan site. and public order offences outside Celtic Park.

Criticisms of competence of any manager are perfectly legitimate. football is a game of passions. but the criticism of particularly Ally Mc Coist by some Rangers supporters went over and beyond that . the point I was trying to make. 'vitriol' to attack verbally with malice.

8.) 01 Dec 2020 12:36:20
Unbelievable, remember those who wanted statues of mcparland built and in their honest opinion truly believed warbs would win us the title, oh no wait, in their honest opinion truly believed pedro would win us the title. Oh no wait in their honest opinion and truly believed billy davies was the man to win us 55, you know who you are🤦‍♂️ Its football and fans will always vent their anger at players and managers when results are poor, particularly when we spend a fortune and then we chuck it after christmas two year in a row and dropping points left right and centre. Apart from the muppet I don't recall anyone else wanting rid of Gerrard? But there might have been more if last season was allowed to continue because we weren't looking likely to improve on losing at home to hamilton. 👍.

9.) 01 Dec 2020 13:11:12
100% right coldo. Coops always acts thr high and mighty. Everybody else saw the warburton situation coming a mile off even in the championship, dome still had him winning a league and getting statues 🤣🤣 a few criticising gerrard for a poor run hardly equates to folk rioting and throwing barriers at police. Another pointless dig at other supporters.

10.) 01 Dec 2020 13:18:03
Coldo, if you look back over the piece pal, we've all said some corkers on here! BMGH01,my whole point and only point mate is some on here wanted us to be where we're close to now, YESTERDAY! It was always going 2 take time! Like yourself BMGH01,I've been following rangers for many years now and have seen a helluva lot like you undoubtedly have 🤔Thats all i was meaning buddy and yes i admit in a lot of occasions, i've been far too loyal to a lot of our manager's in the past, but that's just my way pal and i support anything rangers 'till the end 👍The treatment of ally mccoist on here mate and the things he was called by fellow bears was absolutely shocking my friend and nothing will change my mind on that!
If i'm too loyal at times there's a helluva lot way too unloyal/ fickle at times!

11.) 01 Dec 2020 13:19:35
Coldo look back at some of your own posts pal and we know who you are 🤔
People in glass houses pal!

12.) 01 Dec 2020 13:29:55
It really gets on my t1t5 when people play the I'm a better fan than you or you're a tim etc when you have an opinion that doesn't suit the garden is all rosey agenda. We were poor domestically the last two years under gerrard, he was reluctant to change it tactically and refused to drop those who should have been. He also tinkered when he shouldn't have. So fans will have an opinion that's what makes us football fans. God forbid if we collapse again after christmas, then he'll be on here with a new name telling us next year that in his honest opinion he truly believes that the next manager will win us 55.👍.

13.) 01 Dec 2020 13:50:46
There's a lot of things on here and posters on here who get on my t**s coldo, don't worry about that. In gerrard's first 2 reasons YES we fell short and we all know when. But we made inroads and improvements each season and have again this season. I stated when he came to give him at least 3 season's before jumping on his back. This i believe is the season and gerrard will win the league as rangers manager and i said as much 🇬🇧.

14.) 01 Dec 2020 13:57:44
This I'm a more loyal fan than you stuff needs to stop!
My issue was having our loyal support lumped into a conversation on the diabolical behaviour of some (not all) Celtic supporters protesting outside parkhead.
If the topic is on the Celtic thugs, please refrain from bringing our support into the discussions and likening what goes on here, to what went on there.
Look, many have made mistakes, or been too loyal, or not shown enough loyalty, when it come to managers, boards, players etc, so can we please stop digging up the past on these matters and keep it relevant and up to date. For goodness sake, you would think we're the ones having a nightmare and about to implode the way we go on sometimes!
We are better than that!

15.) 01 Dec 2020 14:50:39
Must admit great post BMGH01 and i agree we all need to stop digging things up from the past and post/ discuss about the here and now 👍We're going places under gerrard i feel and we should, IF it does indeed happen and we win no.55 all celebrate together, afterall we're all bears who want the very best for the greatest club on the planet, who we're all so very proud to support 🇬🇧 I admit i've been guilty of this and i can only speak for myself but i apologise to anyone i've offended over the piece. I can be too loyal at times and get carried away! We should all be together about where our club is heading right now and i believe its back to the top of scottish football, where the glasgow rangers belong 😁.

How many people think that without Maradona Argentina would have have won the World Cup in 1986 or reached the Final in 1990?My opinion . they would have got nowhere near.
The input and brilliance of Pele's contribution to Brazil's win in 1970 is indisputable but there is still a case to say that without Pele that Brazil side may well have still have won that World Cup. not neglecting either his significant contributions to Brazil's wins in 58 and 62 but again was surrounded by stellar players.
It's all about opinions, of course,
. Maradona's reputation was sullied by his drugs ban. and some of his off field activities whilst with Napoli. but for me I'm with SGL in seeing him as the greatest ever.!


1.) 25 Nov 2020 19:11:55
He is without a shadow of doubt in my opinion the greatest ever player.

The guys now messi Ronaldo etc. couldn’t lace his boots.

2.) 25 Nov 2020 19:29:23
He was good but he was no Jack Wilshire.

3.) 25 Nov 2020 19:53:46
He is the greatest player of all time who was blessed by a talent us mere mortals can only dream of. The man was peerless!

4.) 25 Nov 2020 22:51:15
Got to be Mesdi for me guys.

5.) 25 Nov 2020 23:34:49
IMO Ronaldo and Messi both better than Maradona those boys are dedicated athletes! The best for me is Zidane always done it on the biggest of stages he had everything.



13 Nov 2020 14:21:56
We all have our unique perspective upon the world. I have an Italian Torino supporting friend who cannot bring himself to follow the Azzurri containing any Juve players. so it will be with some our support and Celtic players playing for the National side. I personally have no problem in recognising that Christie was good last evening. or that the Scottish team with Christie . Mc Gregor and yes our own Ryan Jack is a strong area of the team. does that dilute my blue credentials or make me 'suspect' for some of our support?


1.) 13 Nov 2020 15:15:58
I remember my dad, taking me to Rangers v Torino about early 70s, , they were very big then, much better known than juve,

2.) 13 Nov 2020 15:20:46
Absolutely not mate, it's not the players fault the majority of fans and the governing body are eejits. I've watched better Scotland squads fail us in the past so was good to see them do well last night.

3.) 13 Nov 2020 15:45:17
Well Tt. that Torino game at Ibrox you allude to wasn't any old game. it was, of course, a QF tie in our ECWC winning season.1-0 that night .2-1 on aggregate.!

4.) 13 Nov 2020 16:22:58
Not atall Arcadia mate you’re Scottish and it’s in you’re blood. It’s easier and more rewarding to love than hate. Hates such a bad emotion. I have hate for people and it can overwhelm u. People who hate the Scotland national team for the reasons they give don’t realise if they all supported us then the idiots that boo etc would be in the minority.

5.) 13 Nov 2020 17:23:35
Your correct of course mate, I only remember how famous Torino were and how they looked the part, I didn’t even think of 72 when I was posting, just aabout being there and I think I took the program to school for my teacher.

6.) 13 Nov 2020 21:25:48
Wonderful. memories of that run to Barcelona. Although every member of that team were fantastic I always felt Dave Smith was very underrated and major influence in the achievement.

A word of warning guys re Braga. just remember. when we won the Cup Winners Cup in season 71/ 72 we were a distant third in the league 16 points behind Celtic. we were positively schizophrenic that season our league performances having no correlation to our performances on the European front.

I think you are misunderstanding what 'Black Lives Matter' stands for here Rossco. rather than it being a single political constituent it is an umbrella term for a coaltion of various groups from very left wing radical activists to more centrist outlooks ie the President Elect of the USA and others

It is an affirmation that each of us regardless of our ethnicity/ skin colour has essence of humanity and that everyone has equal value and should be treated accordingly . it fact no more really than another dimension/ visible reinforcer to the club ethos ie 'Rangers for Everyone, Anyone'

I hear supporters all the time waxing lyrical about the good old days ie when Scotland had players of real talent. but the fact is that during the era of the Baxters, Laws, Hendersons, Johnstones etc Scotland did not qualify for any tournament from 1958 to 1974.
Scotland have qualified in total for 8 World Cups and 2 Euros (before last night) and in all these tournaments have never got out of the initial group stage.
For a nation purporting to have a footballing pedigree that doesn't make scintillating reading does it?

My last mail contained an error . Scotland have, in fact, been to 8 World Cup Finals not 6.so that's ten major finals in all . and never managed to get out of the group stage in any.
