Hibee %^*& wants a Hibee %^*& to succeed.
I recently listened to his podcast where Alex Rae was guest.I suspect this is another embarrassing attempt by McFarlane to appear fair and balanced as he tries to break into the anti-Rangers Scottish media.
This guy has all the hallmarks of an SNP supporting, craft beer swilling Partick Thistle fan. The kind of guy who finds Off the Ball hilarious and sees Graham Spiers as an intellectual heveyweight. An utter tit in other words.
Clear trolling.Ah Jonny. The man who wrote this after the cup final
"Sometimes though, you have to put your tribal allegiances aside and allow the logic and rational parts of your brain to function. Put simply, in the name of ‘support’ you cannot defend the indefensible.
Yet that’s what many have been doing, finding ways to justify the actions of a minority of Rangers fans who responded idiotically and dangerously to Hibs fans provocation.
Simply, those who invaded the pitch that day at Hampden have no place attending games anymore.
Their day of empty masculinity expressed through the prism of stale Tennents and revolting,caffeinated Tonic Wine has come and gone. They shame us all.
The club themselves are not exempt from blame in this regard. The statement released after the game was rabble-rousing in the extreme, taking pot-shots at everyone from journalists to the First Minister."
This blogger just seems to be taking the proverbial here. There is no Rangers fan, even one who is mentally challenged, who would big up Lennon like this. The guy may as well right blogs saying Rangers should play in green and that Peter Grant should be the next Prime Minister.
"....Back in 2007, I was anticipating the highlight of my football supporting life with the UEFA cup final in Manchester. The next day, after serious rioting and hooliganism, I began to ask myself ‘Is this the sort of club you want to associate yourself with?' "
"There is now a clear and lucid line of thought that the club, from the Manager to the Chief Executive have taken Rangers 2 steps backwards with regressive recent statements that have pandered to the less open minded elements amongst the support. I’m told that Ally McCoist is a really nice guy, that he’s switched on and media savvy but I am yet to see clear evidence of it. He doesn’t seem to be very bright (Don’t even get me started on his signing policy of Brazilians and Greeks for Division 3 football). His request to find the people responsible for Rangers transfer ban was an awful, misguided idea that simply gave credence to those that attach themselves to the club and blacken its name.
Instead of talking about Rangers not going back into the SPL, how about a bit of reconciliation with Scottish football. How about a little reflection and understanding that people nowadays don’t really like songs about ‘19th Century Terrorist blood’? How about a bit of the dignity the club used to be associated with?
There is a simple way to solve the singing problem. The SFL should adopt ‘strict liability’
and, if necessary, dock points. They should start with 3 points for Sunday’s sing-along. It is politically the perfect time. Rangers will win the third division regardless, so the SFL would not be accused of disrupting the integrity of the competition. The chorus would soon stop as the dimmer element would be forced to directly address the consequences of their actions."
"It’s hard being a Rangers fan in modern Scotland. I don’t expect pity. Like clued up Yanks circa 2005, mired in the Bush administration’s wacky adventures, I understand why people hate us and have to accept that at least some of it is probably deserved. Casting aside the financial mismanagement, administrative scandals and historic signing policies, what is worse is the embarrassing ingrained culture that continues to shame the club on a regular basis in 2012. The mind-set of Presbyterian superiority that manifests itself in arrogance and defiance was exposed on Saturday once again, with the singing of banned song ‘The Billy Boys’.
