Not a great fan of the current beard thing but this did make me laugh.

Head of Rangers Academy Craig Mullholland says

“Traditionally, Rangers players were always clean shaven. So in the academy, all the players have to be clean shaven in the morning.

Had things to do so didn’t hear off the Sportsound bit with McMurdo senior but what I did get was all interesting stuff.

However like Mitchell coming out in the open you have to wonder – why now with all the contributions and speaking out?

Lets get these folks and others (EBT Souness,  for example)  in front of a Scottish Football Truth and Reconciliation panel and just spill the beans on everyone and sort this mess out once and for all.

Then maybe we could all move on!!

Had just composed what was the best critique ever of Hearts performance of weekend and the ins and outs of Levein’s management style and where the club are going.

However it didn’t post due to the new blog ending comments on the old one. When I hit the back button my missive was gone from the posting box.

You’ll just have to take my word for it as I can’t be arsed typing it all again.

A very nice summation in a few lines.

To paraphrase a movie what T’Rangers fans deserve is the truth. 
The trouble is they can’t handle the truth!

Interestingly enough, calls for wanting something ‘better’ were coming from some Hearts fans over the weekend given the fairly meek performance at Ibrox.

While many Hearts fans are more than aware of the calamity that nearly engulfed the club some are worried that an attitude of being grateful for just surviving, along with Levein’s tactics are holding the club back.

Therefore there has to be an element of acknowledging where things have gone wrong in the past but that should not necessarily taint your future.

However some T’Rangers fans seen to both deny or block out their past and expect things to be ‘back to normal’ ASAP.

The answer is of course getting the balance right when rebuilding.

Despite having wished for Levein to have really taken the game to T’rangers yesterday, as there was absolutely nothing to gain from playing it cautiously, I still think in terms of a long term strategy he is on the right track but do acknowledge patience is wearing thin.


Is it time for the Sin Bin?
Let the conspiracy theories commence 🙂


Is it time for the Sin Bin?
I note with interest that earlier this month Hummel signed a five year deal with Middelsborough (currently in a play-off slot in the English Championship).

Yet in any of the press coverage their is no vulgar mention of the money side of the deal.

Why is the SMSM so keep to put values on contracts with a certain club?

I also note that while the super soaraway is saying the T’Rangers three year deal is worth up to £10m, others simply report is as £10m.

Can’t even get their regurgitation of press releases straight.

 


Is it time for the Sin Bin?
I don’t know what possessed me but I took a look at Keith ‘Wealth Off the Radar’ Jackson’s piece today on the DR website re T’Rangers debacle.
He is mildly critical of King and his decisions but the main thrust of his article is that he seems to be backing Miller and Wallace and is implying that, from having a relatively untried management team of Warburton & Weir, to the Caixinha fiasco and the upgrading of the U20 coach to manager, T’Rangers salvation over the last five games of this season should have been entrusted to the leaders of the Snap Chat group who have no coaching and managerial experience whatsoever.
As someone said the other day the managers list at Sevco has been

TV personality turned Gardener
Janitor / Caretaker 1
McCall
City Trader turned Magic Hat
Janitor / Caretaker 2
Journeyman Clown
Janitor / Caretaker 3
What next?  – Trouble Makers.

Jackson would be as well trawling the south side Glasgow parks for amateur team coaches to be given a shot in the Ibrox dug out.

If that is what passes as informed and considered sports journalism then no wonder the circulation figures are dropping like a stone.

At least when Hearts had the Riccarton Three they directed their ire in the right direction towards the boardroom and not the poor sap in the dug out who was having to deal with a chaotic and shambolic organization.
