I don't disagree that Wallace Mercer was far more dislikeable human being than Alan Stubbs (who I absolutely adore ). I also would say that the levels and volume of these, shall we say, 'bad taste' songs are on a different scale at Ibrox.. or wherever their gang of neanderthals happen to be travelling to.
However, I fully disagree that we can be so up in arms and calling for condemnation of the above**.. while defending some of the **** that comes from our own fans just because Stubbs is a nicer guy.
There definitely have been songs about his ill-health. Although most of them are simple "he's deid" efforts.
They're all poor and shouldn't be sung at all, in my opinion.
**To clarify, I DO think it's right to condemn the huns' behaviour... but don't pretend it'd be alright if the target 'deserves' it.
For anything to change, it has to be fans led. We've seen the authorities sheite themselves over and over again with this lot, and the others ones.
Until such times as we the fans make a stance, and boycott their ground and ban them from ours, nothing will change.
Sometimes doing the right thing for the right reasons is the right way to go, we've tried all the other ways, we've tried to let those in charge run the game properly, but they are just too scared to do anything about it.
It wont happen though, we will just sweep this under the carpet as we have done since i can remember.
There is only one group who can do anything about it G, Scottish Police, but they seem to be turning a blind eye to what happens regards Celtc and the rangers fans, home and away all over Scotland, stabbings, assaults happening every game regards them, and the sectarian pish that is sung by them, mainly at away games where we can all hear it quite clearly as it is broadcasted over the tv, no one should be above the law, time for Scottish police to have serious words with the SPFL and tell them to get there members to get things sorted before someone is killed attending a game through in Glasgow.
