Who are Rangers?

November 20, 2012

A discussion developed earlier on Twitter regarding my provision in an earlier post that Rangers are still Rangers in almost every shape and form.

First of all, I would thank everyone that reads my blog. At the end of the day, these are nothing but my own musings and although I will often diverge into other avenues of interest one thing that I continue to return to is the debate surrounding Rangers.  People will not always agree on football; indeed it would be a very dull and boring sport if someone were to remove the subjectivity from it.

Media Junkies, same old clones and more idiots at the SFA……

July 26, 2012

In between all of the rubbish linking Rangers with just about any ex-SPL player it has become rather alarming to me the length of time an agreement is taking between Charles Green and the SFA to transfer any license.  What strikes me more is that the stalling point appears to be over the SPL stripping Rangers of any titles won whilst duel contracts were in play.

Still No Further Forward……

July 18, 2012

 

The new season, for SFL clubs anyway, is a matter of days away and at this stage we are still no further forward in planning for the season ahead.

Rangers Newco

We refer to the above and take this opportunity to make a statement on behalf of the club. Firstly we appreciate that there have been numerous calls for us to produce such a statement specifically outlining our voting intentions with regard to Rangers Newco entering the SFL. We have been of the opinion that we did not wish to issue a statement when a) we had no actual proposal and therefore no decision to make, and b) more importantly, until we were in full receipt of all the facts. We are now in a more enlightened position. (more…)

Clyde F.C. Statement on ‘newco’ entry to Division 1 (Excellent appraisal)

June 30, 2012

 

The Club has received a set of papers in advance of the SFL meeting on Tuesday. The essential intent behind those papers is to induce the SFL clubs to agree a proposal to allow a Newco to enter the SFL in the First Division in exchange for a range of structural changes to the current set up and some small financial inducements. Some of the proposed changes have merit in principle.

Newco – Yey or Nae ?!?!?

June 15, 2012

The ‘no to newco’ campaign is now well and truly in full force with fans of all SPL club clamouring the see a ‘newco’ Rangers ousted from the top tier of Scottish Football and to the bottom of the professional leagues: all in the name of ‘sporting integrity’ of course. Pffft

Twitter….

I have, probably stupidly, been reading some twitter comments this morning on the Rangers liquidation. Plenty comments out there so lets just pick a few:

Dust thou art, and unto dust thou shalt return

June 13, 2012

It is currently 00.14am on Wednesday 13th June 2012.

If I were to sit down, ten years ago till this very day and tell people that Glasgow Rangers would be no more, ‘bankrupt’, ‘liquidated’, ‘kapeesh’  – however you wish to term it: I would have been laughed out of the company I found myself.

Indeed, that is now – unfortunately – the reality of the situation.

Helping No One: Pointless Propaganda

April 22, 2012

I find myself increasingly frustrated.

I take absolutely no pleasure in Rangers current situation, indeed it breaks my heart in the same way it would break the heart of any football fan to find their club in the same position.

Personally, I find myself as a realist. I don’t shirk or hide; I don’t blame or lash out at others. Rangers are in this situation because of the actions of a few. It is not the Rangers supporters fault no matter how many others would like to tar the support as being gullible and not asking questions. Utter bullshit! I am not here to point score; but the actions of a few do not surmount to genuine fans that paid their way year after year for a product.
