They really are like spoiled infantile brats who can't handle any kind of competition and want the title handed to them by a vote every season.

He's also hurting cause the yahoo board couldn't care less about them they are at the crime scene to make money for themselves.

Would anyone at nonce park pony up £100m if the shoe was on the other foot?

Rangers have overtaken them on the park and next season with CL income we'll overtake them financially off it. That's what the fat pishy mess fears the most not being able to write 7000 blogs a year telling gullible yahoos that admin 1435545 is right round the corner while begging for money like a tramp on the street.
His perfect world would be Rangers constrained by financial fair play and them dominating in Scotland till Doomsday .

No one will agree with me and I’ll get abuse, or worse called a timposter but ignore the nonsense comparison with WW2 and nazi Germany there is an important point we need to address.

The disparity in stadium capacities, the amount of money we bring in with retail/hospitality needs corrected. Until those fundamental differences are sorted we are swimming against the tide and long-term we’re unlikely to remain the most successful club.

Surely the club are working on that by doing up Club 72 and some of the suites re hospitality? We have also done a feasibility study pre Covid re stadium expansion and I’m sure we’ll be looking at that in due course once we build up some capital. Also re retail you need to remember where we have been re Ashley and the Spivs, it’s only now we are able to post numbers of merchandise sold as a normal club which we’ve been anything but the last 10 years or so.
Sorry for being positive as you seem like a glass half empty kind of guy.
And just for the record the day I take anything that mutant nonce blogger says is the day i chuck it!!

Your first question stating the club are working on it acknowledges that it’s an issue.

We are working on it, far too late but better late than never. This pre-dates 2012, our trophy haul since 2000 hasn’t been good enough.

Not glass half empty just how it is unfortunately, football is driven by money if you have more of it than your rivals you’ll be more successful.

You say this pre dates 2012 but also say our trophy haul since 2000 hasn't been good enough. But if you take it from 2001 - 2011 then I make it 15 major trophies including 5 championships. Also a European final. Apart from the 9 in a row era that's about as successful a period of time as we've had. Certainly in most of our life times. You can't include 2012 - 2018 for obvious reasons so apart from recent cup failures I don't see how it could have been much better?

That’s a fair point.

You’re right about post 2012. And the stats from 2001-2011 aren’t as bad as they probably could have been/felt. 2 of the league titles were last day wins (one only really Marvin believed) and the other 3 were delivered by the only man who could do 3IAR while paying down debt at the rate we had to.

Weird to put a negative slant on Rangers achievements

Not glass half empty though o_O:rolleyes:

Going by your logic Man U should win the EPL every year, 55 was impossible and there is no point employing the better management/background staff. Sort of get your point but we started from miles behind in all departments. Its not long till we overtake them again in all departments. We are the bigger club and 60000 capacity means nothing when 20000 of the seats are empty btw

This is not the thread for petty squabbles.

Why would it when they don’t sell out their stadium? You can have all the capacity you want but it’s tickets sold that’s most important.

No offence mate but can you stop polluting this thread with this rubbish?

And, in terms of profit, it also depends on how many tickets are sold at full price and how many are concession. Didn't they have to change their gate/ticketing systems a few years back because of the number of their fans abusing it and pretending to be kids?

Seems that many of the Bhoys problems stem from bhoys...

Imagine being this angry about the finances of a club you don't support . But also being angry because fans of other clubs don't care about the finances of this club . Seethe and pain this clown will end on a early grave with all the bitterness and hate that he feeds on.

What’s the negative slant?
Sorry but you're kidding aren't you..?

You don't think saying we won more trophies than we should have in that period, because 2 were only won on the last day, and that three other trophies were effectively won against the odds, is putting a negative slant on those achievements..?

We can't walk every Title and Trophy. At some times the scum are going to be close to us.

BTW:

2000 - 2012

Champions: Rangers 6, Scum 7
Scottish Cup Winners: Rangers 5, Scum 5
League Cup Winners: Rangers 6, Scum 4

And on the subject of the UEFA Cup Final Season, being forced to play FIVE games in 10 days utterly robbed us of a League Title which would have made us Champions 7 times v the Scum's 6 in the period you refer to.

I prefer to not talk down my Club's achievements. Cheers.
