secondratestar: (Rangers: Aaron (1st Goal Celebration))
( Mar. 19th, 2009 09:07 am)
Looks like Aaron won't be staying at Ibrox. His valuation has gone up about £1million since he came to the club on loan (due to the state of the pound), and since Rangers have (to put it mildly) fuck all money we can't really afford the £3.7 to keep him. At least we have him for two years though, its a small comfort even though Walter refuses to fucking play him despite the fact he's been brilliant the few times he's come on. I can see his point in a way, we have him for two years so take the first year to get him used to the club and get him used to Scottish football but now Valencia are saying they might take him back after a year it all just seems a little...eh. He's a good kid we need to fucking play him while we have him (and pray we can keep him).

A friend of mine mentioned last night that if we sell Boyd (worth £4m) then we could buy Aaron (against the fucking point by the way) but that irritated the hell out of me as well. Just because he's playing in the SPL he's only worth £4m (recent events aside which may, although I fucking hope not, have affected this) had he been playing down south since the start of his career he would have been worth so much more; at least £10m (still "small" figures I know compared to what most people are used to hearing).

I guess I'm just really worried about the state of my club just now, financially more than anything (as well as the usual), it seems like everyday there's something else that is getting the alarm bells ringing. That's all non-football staff been made redundant now. Fucking scary to be honest.

Anyway, in better news. Five of our boys have been called up for the Scotland squad.

-McGregor (who I think should be first choice for our number one (I'm not just being biased) because yes, Gordon is good, but McGregor is better just now. Simple as that and he deserves a chance, he's been fucking spectacular for Rangers this season).

-Broadfoot (who I can't help but just go "aww" and I don't know why). He's just...special.

-David Weir (he's 93 now but he can still do it!)

-Barry Ferguson (now, the amount of SHIT in the papers about Fergie these past two days has been disgusting. He was one of the only ones on the park on Sunday who actually looked like he gave a flying fuck about the game (a couple of really daft mistakes aside) yet he's getting slated left, right and center for not being good enough, being a bully and players not playing just because he's on the pitch (what the fuck is that one supposed to mean by the way?) Nonsense. He's the best we've got to lead club and country, hate how every bugger going starts to come out of the woodwork against Barry whenever we lose something).

-Kenny Miller (first choice as a lone striker, which is quite right and although his form hasn't been great this season for Rangers (for whatever reason) he alone has scored at least half of the national goals of the current squad.

(No Boyd obviously as his toys are still firmly outside of the pram on this one)

+ OMG two weeks untl [livejournal.com profile] reima  comes over to Glasgow!!! *dances* so so sooooo excited! *g* (we need to talk btw, bb, so I know what bus to get and what hours to get off work).

Take a look at this picture? Do you want to see Nacho cry? DO YOU? I for one do not. Socks up lads, get it sorted.


Hope. Frustration. Anger. Despair. Oh boys, you don't half put me through it all, season after season after season. That was awful. Painful actually. I'm distraught. I've been ranting all night about it (some of it in language I shall not be repeating in my journal) so I'm spent. No more. All is not lost and the season is not yet over. Just...gotta pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and get the fuck back on with it.

BUT! A Small rant at the expense of Broadfoot. IF YOU WERE GOING TO GET SENT OFF FOR SOMETHING MAKE IT WORTHWHILE AND BREAK THAT LITTLE CUNT MCGEADY'S LEGS. (I Fucking Hate that little twat. Loathe and detest him. If there was any one person who looks like you'd want to smack in the pus more I can't think of them).

If I have to see that look on Barry's face again this season I won't be able to take it, really. That hurt so fucking much...I managed to keep it all together until I saw him welling up and that was it. Gone.

Eh...good points? Nacho's back. New pitch at Hampden looked gorgeous. Lafferty played pretty well and it looks like he's coming into some kind of form eventually. Think that was it. But that said...not good enough, really at the end of the day, any of them, was it?

Fucking Septic. They make my skin crawl...seriously.

'to quote Churchill; he is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma'
- from The Scotsman about Kris Boyd.

So apparently he got banned from training and got completely bollocked at by Walter Smith because of his attitude problem, which more or less rules him out from the Celtic game. Now, don't get me wrong, I completely and utterly adore Kris and I think he's an excellent player when he wants to be but as much as his diva antics can be hella amusing I'm starting to think that maybe he needs to, y'know...grow the fuck up before he burns all of his bridges.

There's been rumours floating around for the past year or so that the only reason he's being kept out of the squad is because of a drug problem or other such shite (which every fucking tim I know has jumped on gleefully...the twats). But the fact of the matter is we have four excellent strikers, Miller's a speedy little fucker and can score a good goal, Novo's gonna be back soon and he can be a complete pain in the arse for the opposition and Lafferty's a great wee player as well (despite all the recent flak he's been getting), so Kris isn't going to be in every game, yes he's a complete goal machine but other aspects of his game just are not up to that same level, he's got an inconsistency about him which is why, sometimes, he does get left out. But instead of trying to improve upon them he takes a complete hissy fit strop about it. Not the right attitude. It shows a lack of respect for both Ally and Walter Smith in their team selections and of his teammates. It wouldn't be right if he wasn't dissapointed, of course, but he just needs to deal with it better.

Anyway, there's been a crap load of stuff in the press today about this being the end of the line for Boydy but I don't think it will be. It's hardly a secret that Watty doesn't take shit from anyone and it was getting to the stage that something was going to have to be said, no player is ever bigger than the team. He won't leave Rangers. At least, I really fucking hope not.

Bloody footballers.

A brief interuption to your f-listing for a small dash of Scottish football. (I shant be long).

From the Forfar v Rangers game: 18/2/2009 @ Station Park (two best pics, le boy hardly took any and my phone was fucked so I couldn't take any at all).

Oh and for bonus points Ally Brown (Forfar's GK (who's far too good to be in the Third Division btw) is in both pics.

Sorry but fucking *LOL* at Kris, he's such a freakin' princess sometimes. Stomp. Stomp. Stomp.
