Some questions for those who would be interested in this.
Would doing the initial one close season be acceptable? End of June/ July
Would it have to be Glasgow, would a wee town, say Largs as an example be better?

Just trying to work out how best to do it.

Not even sure what numbers to aim for.

All suggestions welcome.

That is real forward thinking stuff going on there.

Those kids are having a great time and the depth of feeling Liverpoolare engendering in those children will never leave them.

Future season ticket holders. Future Kop end singers. Guaranteeing another generation of atmosphere at Anfield.

Honestly. That is a fabulous example that we would do very well to follow

Probably to late now mate, but I would have thought some sort of end of season party?

Location wise I would guess Glasgow.

It's absolutely brilliant what the Liverpool fans are doing at the moment. Phenomenal songs for the majority of their players creating an unbelievable atmosphere and bond between players & fans.

We desperately need more of this.

I like Gerry cinnamon and rangers so win win.
I’d rather go to this than a sash bash/uvf pish all day long
Me too. Had never heard of him until I checked a song I saw in a Boss video, liked it and searched and found it was Belter by Gerry Cinnamon.

On that note, if people are going to say things like we can't use that tune, the band who sung that are this or that...

Noticed that Boss use songs from Oasis and whoever. It doesn't matter to me who did the original
 
I don't understand some people. The 'Boss' nights would be for people who don't give a %^*& about Loyalism, UVF/UDA, people fed up hearing Bobby Sands name sung at every event (Not criticising anyone for this being their thing, each to their own and all that)

I am proposing to have one of these nights, for people who are only interested in Rangers FC, if you are not one of those, you don't go or criticise anyone wanting to go. Seemples.

As it seems there are not a lot of us about, so it's unlikely to happen, unless it's a tiny venue :D

For the record I do have a couple of musicians prepared to give it a go.
Brilliant idea.

End of season would be a good idea to start, but would have to be well advertised in plenty of time, maybe advertise it at last home game? I think by doing it during the season you will maybe attract more folk, as it could be timed for after a home game.

I would say Glasgow is best bet, taking into account transport links and the amount of support we have in Glasgow and the surrounding areas I would imagine you would have more chance of success there.

I am thinking timing may be an issue. I currently have 1 confirmed and 1 likely willing musician. They would have to get up to speed with the song list we want to attempt. Never having done anything remotely like this before, I want to be certain everything is done correctly.

I would actually like to set up some sort of web/Facebook page for those likely to be attending this. I watched the Boss documentary last night and it has given me lots of food for thought. Would like to digest it and reflect.

There’s a Gers fan on YouTube with a good voice and a guitar called Dean Chalmers. He would be a good fit if interested.

If we had that Fan Zone were after we could have a singer singing songs that hopefully spread to the terraces.

Anyone with genuine interest in writing songs about the club/players should get together and brainstorm.

We’ve not even got an original song for Steven Gerrard, that’s how bad things are!

What about pre-season to fit on with a friendly match?

I messaged Dean, I don't hold out much hope for a couple of reasons, his nose may be a wee bit out of joint due to the lack of interest in his Stevie G song and the fact this sort of thing he may feel will affect his professional career.

The suggestion about songwriters and musicians coming together is spot on. This could be a focal point and it is my intention to have some web page where, those wanting to get involved in writing and recording can do so. And those intending going to the events can be familiar with the new songs
 
Liverpool is a great Mathew st is jumping at week ends. I been few times now was over there at the weekend for stag and was lucky to get a ticket for Chelsea end was great time part from the results and I recommend may Duncan’s cheep place stay and u not pay over £3.20 for a drink

Nice idea in theory but our support isn’t imaginative enough for this kind of thing. Sad but true. Bufalo song only original one for years. No tune for a stalwart like Tav, none for Steven Gerrard.

The old loyalist tunes still rule the roost in our support.

That's the spirit! Only need a few creative people to get it going. The rest of our unimaginative support just have to turn up and enjoy themselves. I'm sure we are capable.

Think the Loyalist tunes are the easy fall back and probably why theres so few original songs started. Might be the kind of event that could see that change.
