Man City will be facing competition for the big names now. I hear Rangers will bid £12 million for Craig Mackail-Smith.

lol if they let us have vladimir weiss back we may not throw our money about and scupper their transfer targets.

I doubt it will be "momentous" tbh-murray is out the way,but the money required to take any Scottish team to "another level" simply doesnt exist. It pains me to say it,but lets face it,Scottish football is laughably poor. The problem is partly that for the majority of rangers and celtic fans,all they care about is outdoing the other-if thats the height of the ambition we have up here,we may as well just chuck in the towel. A lot of talk about craig whyte giving mccoist 25 million quid-obviously a LOT of money,but in global football terms,its a drop in the ocean. Football has moved on everywhere else in europe,but all we seem to care about is which half of the old firm win the league.

avetower Limited

("Wavetower" or the "Company")

Acquisition of controlling interest in The Rangers Football Club P.L.C.


Wavetower is pleased to announce that it has today acquired 92,842,388 ordinary
shares, representing approximately 85.3 per cent. of the issued share capital
in The Rangers Football Club P.L.C. (the "Club"), for a consideration of £1X).
Wavetower acquired its interest in the Club (the "Acquisition") from Murray MHL
Limited.

The Acquisition would ordinarily have required Wavetower to make a general
offer in cash under Rule 9 of the Takeover Code to all other shareholders in
the Club but, as the consideration paid by Wavetower for the shares acquired is
£1, the Takeover Panel has granted Wavetower a dispensation from making such an
offer.

Wavetower intends to post a circular to the Club's shareholders by 16 May 2011
containing background information on Wavetower and other relevant information.
Wavetower intends to maintain the Club's listing on PLUS Markets for a minimum
of 12 months from the date of this announcement.

Wavetower is 100% owned by Liberty Capital, a company which is ultimately owned
by Craig Whyte. Craig is a lifelong Rangers supporter and is very much looking
forward to guiding and assisting Rangers in its development over the coming
years.

it is momentus. the cash isn't in place to take us to "another level" its there to save the club and not have the bank and god knows who else at the door looking for money.

as for the rest of your stuff, the old firm over the last 5 or 6 years have done pretty well in europe and havn't exaclty been left behind. 2 european finals, last 16 of champions league a few times and regular european games after christmas (something that never happened in the 90's) would suggest we're just about competing.

I know and hopefully he'll get rid of that board who in an attempt to save their own skin started to make up fake nonsensical alternative plans as well as being at the helm while the club was took to the brink of adminstration.

That's the icing on the cake for me.

Whyte comes in and sacks the board - made up of dyed in the wool bigots indoctrinated in the 'traditions' of Rangers.

Salmond invoke independence in Scotland and all the Unionist lot migrate to England.

Fantastic.

There's a surprise. WMN prattling on about poppies again.

Again, I've asked you this before, but how exactly can anything to do with poppies be bigoted? You do know the definition of bigoted, don't you?

A proportion of Celtic fans are utterly intolerant of the idea that people should be allowed to commemorate fallen service personnel by holding a protest over the clubs decision to wear a poppy on the team strip?

So, where in your definition, does being intolerant of an idea become bigoted? Whatever way you wanna swing it, although this protest was in poor taste and shouldn't have been allowed to happen, it certainly isn't bigoted behaviour.

That's like saying I believe all roads should be made of wood, and if someone else protests against my belief, they're bigoted.

The use of the term belief has a specific structure, not in general terms as you seem to believe, if you excuse the pun.

No it's not. If the protesters where attached to some group that was blindly against every belief you had or they were utterly intolerant of the idea then than your statement would be correct. In your scenario you have expressed an opinion and someone has disagreed. From what you have said they have not shown utter intolerance of your belief . To be honest your argument is very straw-man like.

The thing with the poppy day palava was that it was done obstinately and was utterly intolerant: No bloodstained poppies. The use of bloodstained highlights the anger and vitriol involved in the protest.

What is the aforementioned specific structure?

Perhaps rather troll-like of myself i have continued this petty debate far beyond my original intent. I was initially just supplying the definition. My honest opinion is that the majority of football is bigoted and it's almost set up like that. However, for the most part the bigotry can be taken as simple banter. It's when uneducated morons ( not you) go beyond the boundaries and introduce malice and hatred into the mix that things go wrong. It's why i try to dissociate myself with the old firm in general.

I don't disagree with much of what you say at all - bar your interpretation of this poppy fiasco. I simple don't interpret such behaviour as bigoted per-say, more ill-founded, uneducated and abhorrent.

I like to distance myself from the morons in my support, I truly wish they were extinguished from the group - it appears to be difficult for the management to do, for some reason - they really should step up their game like they have done in the past and made a serious incision into the problem. There's this very vocal minority (the GB) that pollute the support and tarnish the decent fans who behave relatively well - but I guess that's the same with all football supporters - there's always some morons who cause trouble.
