Lilly Allen Hun song

Did Lilly Allen really write this about Rangers?? Seems plausible

Coming season

I'm more optimistic about the new season now than I was at the end of last season, when we sort of just fizzled out. It's not that I think the old weaknesses (the main one being the lack of decent players) have been eliminated but there seems to be a good spirit about the time. We have a hard start to the season, beginning on Wednesday evening so here's hoping we begin well.

Wee Gordon brought success to the Club at the cost of our style of play. Maybe Mowbray can make it enjoyable to watch the Bhoys again.

Lessons in Dignity no. 1689 - Orangeokie

The latest craze in Rangers pubs these days. 'Orangeokie'...

If the UK were a village of 100 people...

17 of the 100 villagers would be under the age of 15, while another 16 would be 65 or over (three of them 80 or over).

There would be 80 adults (aged 16 or over), of whom 40 would be married and 11 would live alone.

There would be 42 households in the village, of which 13 would be home to just one person. (Six of these would belong to lone pensioners, of whom five would be female.)

Tony Mowbray

Well, Tony wasn't anyone's first pick for new manager. But he's here now so, I guess, we have to make the most of it. I have a nagging suspicion that he fits in with the Board's vision for Celtic... conservative, careful, nice, agreeable, and, hopefully, successful in relative terms (win the SPL most of the time and don't get embarrassed in Europe). One thing for sure is that it is a huge move away from the vision that brought Martin O'Neil to the club.

Mowbray shouldn't find it too hard to make improvements. Nine wins in the last 18 games, failing to win three consecutive games since November 2008, and failing to score in three of the last four games of the season, is not a hard act to follow. So we should see improvements. He will also not have the same blind spots as wee Gordon and it's good to see Hesselink get shoved out the door at long last. Others should follow.

Our pre-season is the usual silly set of fixtures beginning with one game in Australia. Nice work Peter.
