Thats the thing, if rangers and celtic where to gtf as you say, yes the spl would be a closer run thing but what sort of money would be in the scottish game and what standard of player would you be watching, the standard is bad enough just now but without rangers and celtic there would be less tv money which would mean no money for hald decent players never mind good players.

What's your views on Rangers this summer so far? Happy to see Barry the Crab go? Can you see any new signings before the season kicks off in a fortnight?

Mendes and Davis in the midfield should be enough in itself to keep things ticking over.

Fergie was better going before he outstayed his welcome, he was a great player but his best years are behind him, we have Kevin Thomson back now who is more than able to fill the boots of BF and long as his knee holds out, Davis is a great player and Mendes can be class at times but he also has days when he looks like he can't be bothered, we should be getting a lot more goals from him.

Im think we will sign a CB if celtic don't get through to champions league as we would get another 2 million plus in tv rights, we badly need one for cover for Davie Weir he can't go on forever.

Athough there is not a lot of money from tv without rangers and celtic do you really think the tv company would give half the cash they are giving, the reason we are always on the tv for away games is the tv companys know how much the grounds hold and how many rangers/celtic fans there is wanting to see the game, other that a hibsv hearts game what would the vewing figures be for a hibs v hamilton game for example?

I mean scottish football in general not just hibs, There is barely enough good players in the spl to make a couple of teams, what i will say for hibs is they are excellent at producing youngsters i watch a bit of reserve and u19 football also and the hibs team at u19 fully deserved the double from what i seen, how long will you be able to hold on to these players once they make the break through, a couple of seasons at most without tv money you would be lucky to keep them a season.

How then do you explain some of the Scandanavian clubs who continually outperform you and your twin ugly sister in Europe. They don't have the finances that you get from tv and your hordes of "the best fans in the world" copyright the old firm. It wasn't all that long ago that Hibs were taking 9 off of Rosenberg in Europe but they now constantly qualify for CL group stages.

The OF have been a burden around the neck of Scottish football for decades and the only people who dont see that are the OF and their pet poodles in the press.

The only reason you are still here is that no one else wants you no matter how hard you both whore yourselves to the EPL or any where else

The Scandanvians have done well in europe but have they done much better, both Rangers and celtic have made the last 16 in the champions league and both teams have also been in the uefa cup final in the last 6 years, that something I never thought i would see in my lifetime, and i don't imaine i will see again, you can'tsay Rangers didn't put out some really good teams in that run tothe final.

We have no cash to spend on players that is no seceret, the level of players we can bring to ibrox is english championship players like Boogie or if preimership players its from the lower half like davis, Boogie is like a superstar up here but if you seen if against arsenal it showed he was way out his depth, Cuellar was great up here nothing special at villa Boumsong was great then look what happened when he left, although we got a tidy sum.

Wheather we like it or not players use us a steping stone to the premiership.

This is the utter garbage trotted out time after time by the likes of you and your pals at Darkheid. What are you basing this on, there are at least 10 clubs in England who have as many ST holders, would have the same tv revenue and probably have as much interest from abroad as you have.

Rangers and celtic get the interest from abroad when our teams play away, because our fans take a healthy travelling support, folk cannot understand why so many folk travel for a game of football and believe me they then take an interest, have a look back when rangers played villareal it was like a home game the next round arsenal played there im sure it was a semi final and they where lucky if 3 thousand went, so there is a big difference from the support.

You may not have noticed but you don't get to play Man Utd, Chelsea, Liverpool every week. You also have to play Hull, Stoke, Wigan etc. Again another nonsensical argument from you.
As has been seen in the past when the OF go through a period of no success the crowds drop drastically. See Rangers just before Souness and Celtic pre McCann similar. There is no gaurantee of success or European qualification in England so a similar pattern may follow. A few years of this and you would be screaming for the good old days back in Scotland

Oh, one footnote, the term Hun was commonly used to refer to Germans long before anyone had ever heard of Nazis. My wife's a 'Hun', in that sense, and she certainly wouldn't like the (probably unintended) inference that she's a Nazi. Sticks and Stones though, eh..... :wink:

I work beside a number of guys who were there and have all said that there was trouble from morning to night. It ranged from p155ing all over the city, damaging cars, mobbing off licences and stealing booze to the full on riots seen later. If you are happy with that well it only confirms what every other non OF fan has known for years, you are an embarrassment to the country.

We have no cash to spend on players that is no seceret, the level of players we can bring to ibrox is english championship players like Boogie or if preimership players its from the lower half like davis, Boogie is like a superstar up here but if you seen if against arsenal it showed he was way out his depth, Cuellar was great up here nothing special at villa Boumsong was great then look what happened when he left, although we got a tidy sum.

Wheather we like it or not players use us a steping stone to the premiership.

Fergie was better going before he outstayed his welcome, he was a great player but his best years are behind him, we have Kevin Thomson back now who is more than able to fill the boots of BF and long as his knee holds out, Davis is a great player and Mendes can be class at times but he also has days when he looks like he can't be bothered, we should be getting a lot more goals from him.

Im think we will sign a CB if celtic don't get through to champions league as we would get another 2 million plus in tv rights, we badly need one for cover for Davie Weir he can't go on forever.

Your chairman is openly telling folks that one CB is all you can afford to sign.

Those who stood by and watched AND did nothing to prevent or quell the violence and general carnage are, IMO, just as guilty by colluding with the thugs or at least guilty by association. Therefore there may well be the 50,001 you are looking for. :devil: :devil:

The OF TV rights issue eh?

This is the single problem with OF run Scottish fitba Rangers and Celtic always bleating about money!

Football is about the fans and the community the individual teams serve. Before the invention of the PREMIER lets make Rangers and Celtic money league and before the SFA and now the SPL office bearers realised they could live the high life while allowing this...our teams were doing well in all competitions:



Strong domestic league
European and UEFA Cups
British cups
World and European Cups

Then the mighty West of Scotland Brigade decided, utilising their tiny robbing mentality, that money could be made by changing the system to suit the OF and it didn't take much for the greedy chairmen at both clubs to realise this and agree.

The SFA/SPL and the OF have totally ruined Scottish football through their small minded bigotted sectarian agenda encompassing sheer greed!

Take your teams to EPL and all the money you carry! I live in hope that Scottish Football will return to the fans and the communities enabling home grown talent to perform on a stage they so want to while genrating interest and a competative nature and performance proving the Scots are world class at football.

Money the OF the SFA/SPL gtf!:grr:

hibs1875aye
04-08-2009, 11:50 AM
Thats the thing, if rangers and celtic where to gtf as you say, yes the spl would be a closer run thing but what sort of money would be in the scottish game and what standard of player would you be watching, the standard is bad enough just now but without rangers and celtic there would be less tv money which would mean no money for hald decent players never mind good players.

Is this the same good players rangers and celtic tend to steal from us, for less than their value, mid-season (or ideally for the huns or smeltic just before we play you) then claim them to be a superior level of player just because they now play outwith their original club???


I mean scottish football in general not just hibs, There is barely enough good players in the spl to make a couple of teams, what i will say for hibs is they are excellent at producing youngsters i watch a bit of reserve and u19 football also and the hibs team at u19 fully deserved the double from what i seen, how long will you be able to hold on to these players once they make the break through, a couple of seasons at most without tv money you would be lucky to keep them a season.

See above. The reason Scottish football is in a decline is largely due to celtic and rangers stiffling competition and taking all the best players, often via under hand tactics using newspapers and slimey agents, and then complaining there's nae competition!


If Rangers got in to England we would have plenty of cash to spend and im sure we would be able to lure some big name talent. it would take time but im sure within 5 years we would be up chere challenging.

Wrong. 5 years??? :faf: 5 decades!! If the huns got into england you would get gubbed regularly as, contrary to popular belief around Govan way, the world does not start and end in glasgow. Liverpool/Man Utd/Arsenal :greengrin/Chelsea etc would pound you on a regular basis with their superior spending power as would some of the "smaller" clubs who are, by definition (and accounts), "bigger" than the mighty old firm who regularly win nothing outside Scotland.

Then, contrary to another myth with your greatest fans in teh world pish, the most "loyal" fans in Britain (UK) or whatever you wish to call it, would desert you, on the hunt for easier glory.

Anyway, I do hope you lot get your wish and do get join an English League....and I do hope next season you are regularly gubbed by everyone.

Best Wishes

The rest of Scotland (non-huns) :thumbsup:

Personally think both the Old Firm teams would hold their own in the EPL which from middle down is choc full of pretty average but physically powerful teams. Just cant see it happening to be honest as why would the middle to bottom premiership teams and the middle to top Championship teams basically vote against their best interests. To suggest neither or them could do ok in England given their size, support and increased revenue is nonsense IMO.

Manchester will be a day I will remember for the rest of my life apart from the performance on the park it was a fantastic day for me and i won't let the thugs who caused bother take away my memorys.

That's completely different from the revenue you bring in.

Like our maroon friends across the city, you have money coming in (and in your case, massive amounts) but unfortunately it gets pished up the wall on useless players from Lithuania (or Adam/Gow etc. in your case).

The reason Rangers are so far in debt is because you've been overspending against your income for years, and it's now coming home to roost.

That what ive said mate, hence the reason we can't buy players, the best chance we have got of bringing in a CB is if celtic go out of champs league tomorrow night and that gives us an extra 2 million which i would hope would go on players, we have got rid of a few earners Fergie, Hemdani ect so things should hopfully get better.

Yeah which is silly because they don't compare. Just like the scottish cup doesn't compare to the champions league trophy.
No what im saying is if we had won the Arsenal tournament at the weekend(I know we didn't), you wouldn't put that in your list of honours as it was a friendly tournament, the same a celtic won't add the wembly cup to there official honours list, (well they might they have a history of things like this:cool2:)

Ok so your mass of cups is more important even tho in every respect you are less successful than all the clubs I noted a good few more I could mention. And you cannot see the irony in your post citing linfield as less successful due to what they have won which was my point with your lot all along!!!!


Do tell.
