  1. Thanks for the link and it was myself who wrote the match report.

    My main gripe is that since Martin O’Neill turned us from a club who enjoyed random successes to a club where a tin pot is delivered nearly every season then there has been a marked shift in attitudes to perceived failures.

    In John’s blog I do go on a rant in the comments regarding the reasons for this. It’s a cultural thing and we are just more opinionated now due to reality tv and social media. Money that players earn also make them easy targets.

    Last week we reached the Champions League group stages, are showing signs of real progress both on and off the park , are undefeated in all competitions so far this season all while seeing an injury crisis bourn out of pushing the players hard and early in pre-season to ensure we had European football this season.

    Even if Deceased Rangers or Newco Rangers were in the SPL I still wouldn’t see a reason to wipe the big smile of my face at the start to our season. Leagues are not won in August or September.

    The bed wetters can go and change their sheets.

    Anyone booing Rodgers after 3 games is nothing but a complete moron.
    I’ll leave Spurs fans to comment about the booing of AVB.

    Overall it’s sad but that’s how disgusting top level football has become. Instant success or you are a failure, no concept of building something.
