Fingers crossed.

only watched 7 minute highlights of the Celtic game from Sunday but honestly from an attacking point of view the bhoys looked "class" - albeit against Hamilton who might finally get relegated this season (fingers crossed).

Temporary Erogenous Zone (jim in vancouver), Tuesday, 4 August 2020 20:07 (eight months ago) link

Can't see them holding on to Edouard for the entire season tbh.

Took us all of one game to fuck up COVID bubbles to protect football.

2 Aberdeen players tested positive and 6 others isolating after a trip to the city centre pubs following their match on Saturday. Game with St Johnstone off.

Footballers. Honestly. Clowns.

The Scottish government is warning that it could call a halt to the football season after a Celtic player breached coronavirus rules.

Boli Bolingoli admitted he played in Sunday's match against Kilmarnock despite having recently returned from Spain without quarantining.

オニモ (onimo), Tuesday, 11 August 2020 09:18 (eight months ago) link

Griffiths in the COVID bad boy's club too but we already knew what a dick he was.

Mud... jam... failure (aldo), Tuesday, 11 August 2020 20:28 (eight months ago) link

We also had Rangers going ahead with a bounce game against Motherwell with 9 (iirc) players awaiting test results and therefore not cleared to play.

Given what we know of Scottish football's ability to govern itself and given how many Riordan, O'Connor, Griffiths, etc. types there are (I see a pattern and it's not just their barbers 😀) I think the chances of getting through the season without wee Nicola pulling the plug are slim to none.

オニモ (onimo), Tuesday, 11 August 2020 20:40 (eight months ago) link

bolingoli is one of those players you expect is a numpty based on how he plays. id drum both him and racist leigh out of cp right now if it were possible

think there might actually be a title-race this year if Celtic's early season form is any indication, although the Morelos situation is obviously a big issue for rangers, he really dug them out of a hole constantly last season

rascal clobber (jim in vancouver), Thursday, 27 August 2020 20:43 (seven months ago) link

hard to replace goals, even though he never scores against celtic. if we can hold on to edouard (unlikely) and get a CB, I'd fancy our chances. off season has been so compressed, with players training at home/alone over the summer, would expect them to get progressively better as match fitness comes on

||||||||, Thursday, 27 August 2020 20:46 (seven months ago) link

aye, I fear for eddy. and the transfer windae doesn't slam-shut until October!

rascal clobber (jim in vancouver), Thursday, 27 August 2020 20:47 (seven months ago) link

would expect them to get progressively better as match fitness comes on

Yup. It's a shit excuse but I think without Boli's wee trip to Spain we'd have bern two matches sharper and fitter and good enough to win last night.

Fantastic finish from Christie but I'm still struggling to get worked up about fan-free-fitba. Like I appreciate the technique and applaud it like I would any of darragh's efforts in the 'I SCORED A GOAL FFS' thread but I don't get out of the eight month deep crater in my couch.

Can't exactly say I'm lamenting the departure of Lawwell, but I hope the new guy pisses off the other side as much:

Lawwell was a massive part of the treatment Rangers received in 2012. Forcibly made sure we were crushed. He had his tentacles into everything and everyone. He is a cancer to the Scottish game and a bully who has held a dark cloud over chairman, SPFL and others.

ailsa, Friday, 29 January 2021 17:22 (two months ago) link

cleaning house at the end of the season makes sense. a shame that the science of the management of football clubs doesn't really exist. in north american sports there's a real stress on the "front office" and all that that entails, and people get fired a lot more often for not doing a good job. it almost feels churlish to be mad at lawwell when he has presided over a lot of success, but the ronny deila and lennon appointments were dire, and there is always the feeling that significant things like bringing in the rat rodgers always come from desmond

Dusty Benelux (jim in vancouver), Friday, 29 January 2021 18:22 (two months ago) link

also of course the success when rangers weren't in the top division shouldn't be asterisked and you can only beat what's in front of you etc. but really any cunt could have presided over success in those years

just seems a ludicrous situation. they obviously decided months ago he was to be here til the end of the season - probably didn't fancy paying him off - and they wouldn't bother their arse looking at anyone else in the interim. eventually they somehow came to the conclusion they couldnt keep the circus going any longer, but just bringing in JK as interim manager seems like a waste of time? it also brings the worrying thought: if JK does well in the remainder of the season will they appoint him on a permanent basis. wouldn't put it past them!

ailsa, Sunday, 28 February 2021 19:01 (one month ago) link

I'd paid for Premier Sports last month for the semi-final last month and let it roll over for the final. Annoyingly when I cancelled it after they offered me three months for £5.99, maybe I should have done that last week!

I'd say no-one missed too much not seeing the game; it was hard fought and I thought we played decently when we had more of the ball but Livi didn't offer much. The semi-final against Hibs was a much better watch.

Only 330 years behind the rest of us. Slavia and a section of their fans can get tae though.

Watching a few of them still persisting with the idea that Roofe got the ball and therefore it's ok to nearly decapitate the Slavia goalie is fun.

The narrative around Sunday's game is some bullshit though. "Please stay home" = we're no' giving you *more* selfie opportunities and *another* police escort up to a covid-fest, there might be Tims at this one.
