Hearing rumours that Thompson ishakas agent is wanting crazy doe for him to sign with us.


1.) 13 Jul 2022 22:41:02
Gjd well then we say good bye.

2.) 13 Jul 2022 22:56:53
Good luck to the kid then, I’d wish him well.

3.) 14 Jul 2022 13:04:49
Depends what 'crazy doe' is!



03 Jul 2022 15:54:53
Cameron bell announced from Everton, I'm led to believe it's a very good youth purchase.


1.) 03 Jul 2022 16:33:27
Was speaking to a couple of the youth coaches yesterday and he can play both Centre Half and Central Midfield, and that adaptability is something Gio and his team are trying to imprint at all levels.

Be interesting to see how we line up with a full preseason under our belt.

2.) 03 Jul 2022 18:20:18
From what I've been told the youth we are currently bringing in will be among the best in the country. If we can develop them we will follow the mould Ajax use with bringing in more than half the starting 11 via our academy. We already have 3 from the academy in the first team in mccann, lowry and King. Future looks great with all these youngsters.

3.) 03 Jul 2022 18:35:25
I understand the thinking get in as many promising young players to develop maybe some will make it big so we benefit as a club but we need to look at the here and now this youth project will take years to bear fruit.

4.) 03 Jul 2022 21:23:49
Great if we want to win the B league or 4th division.
We need to improve signings (not re-signing) to get into CL and WIN League
Is it just me?

5.) 04 Jul 2022 10:11:25
Yes bar it is. Have some faith.



03 Jul 2022 14:30:08
Hearing rumours Lewis Ferguson to be announced this week for £2.5million.


1.) 03 Jul 2022 15:01:43
That would raise eyebrows paying 2.5m for Lewis Ferguson. He’s linked with us every window though.

2.) 03 Jul 2022 15:03:52
I would happily take Ferguson for that money.

3.) 03 Jul 2022 15:09:37
Hearing a similar rumour but on the basis of Glen Kamara being sold. I know a lot of guys on here don’t think he is good enough but I reckon there’s a lot gio could do with the boy! Family ties aside he’s a physical player that can add that bit of steel to midfield when jack isn’t fit.

4.) 03 Jul 2022 15:17:13
Can't see it for the life of me GJD83 ?.

5.) 03 Jul 2022 15:17:18
Hope so ?.

6.) 03 Jul 2022 15:18:17
No chance that's going to happen.

7.) 03 Jul 2022 15:27:35
hope so tbh, we need a signing and fergie is a good player.

8.) 03 Jul 2022 15:29:19
I've never been that keen on him I feel he's quite a dirty player, to his credit tho he always battles away and gets stuck in, and I actually thought he had a good goal return but I've been informed a lot are penaltys, honestly think we could do a lot better for the money if it is infact the £2.5 million but big thing I think will be the home grown player for Europe that was my automatic reaction when hearing the link regarding Stewart of Sunderland, different type players but if we basically swap Ferguson for Kamara I'll be more than disappointed.

9.) 03 Jul 2022 15:38:30
£2.5 million for a squad player?
Not good enough IMHO
Reckless in the tackle and will be a liability in a Rangers jersey.

10.) 03 Jul 2022 15:39:07
Would take Ferguson every day of the week. If for nothing else to absolutely wind up the majority of our support I see online who seem to dislike him so much.

11.) 03 Jul 2022 15:46:21
Rfcrb, we r all entitled to an opinion, if he signs he gets our support.

12.) 03 Jul 2022 15:52:09
For those that want us to sign lewis ferguson, who gets dropped in our midfield for him? Trust me here and now he won't be anywhere near signing for rangers and i for one am happy with that ?.

13.) 03 Jul 2022 15:55:01
I certainly don't dislike Lewis, and Barry imo was one of our greatest players, but I just don't think he is good enpugh. However, if he signs I'll back him and happily admit I was wrong if it works out.

14.) 03 Jul 2022 15:57:00
I think that Ferguson is a better player for his age than Jack was.

He's got the natural bite that most of players don't have and is young enough to develop.

Would he have been the difference that could have win us the Europa Final - no.

Would he have made a difference in some of the SPL games where we dropped daft points - absolutely.

I'd put Souttar in the exact same bracket.

15.) 03 Jul 2022 16:01:54
Would be a great signing if it happens. Young and experienced in the league we play in. Also can score which is more than some do in our midfield. Could not tell you how many times i'm shouting shoot during a match?. Really winds me up.

16.) 03 Jul 2022 16:03:21
GJD we have dirtier players than him already at rangers.

17.) 03 Jul 2022 16:12:37
Coops we play that many games every year so if we do sign him he certainly will play games for one Jack can’t be trusted to be fit and if kamara goes we need another midfielder.

He is one of the best young midfielders in Scotland out side of the old firm and we should be snapping up young talent IMHO.

18.) 03 Jul 2022 16:15:20
I wouldn't be unhappy if we signed Ferguson, he would certainly strengthen our squad and he would weaken Aberdeen. I don't see us signing any £10 players for midfield or anywhere else and I reckon that GVB could develop him.
I doubt we will hold on to Aribo, Arfield and Davis are in their last season and there is no guarantee that Jack will stay injury free so I am not so confident that we have lots of midfield players even with Lowry and McCann coming through.

19.) 03 Jul 2022 16:16:38
Paul 86

If we do sign him like any other player he will get my full backing, i'm just not that keen on him signing i get the same vibe I did with Ian black type of player just not keen on his style, I would be absolutely delighted if he signs and makes me look like a trumpet tho, love being wrong if it means a player doing well, I would have got rid of lundstrum after that European disaster how glad I am that I'm not in charge ?.

20.) 03 Jul 2022 16:28:51
GJD probably 99% of the support thot same on Lunny.

21.) 03 Jul 2022 16:37:54
Honestly can't see this one happening for a few years when he's closer to becoming a free. I get the attraction of a guy that supports the club playing for club but I feel Lowry a far more skillfull younger prospect diff position granted.

22.) 03 Jul 2022 16:54:57
Love it when folk say the old trust me, he will be nowhere near rangers carryon when in all honesty that's a guess, or your own wish. Nobody on here can make that gaurentee of players not signing. People who talk about his goal record including penalties as well are the same ones who rave about tav's goal record, of which thd majority are penalties. Personally I think k feguson would be a squad player at best but if gio wanted him I would trust him on it 100%. We've signed a lot worse.

23.) 03 Jul 2022 17:06:40
RFC I don’t understand the hate he seems to get on here and some will say it’s because he isn’t good enough and that’s fine but it seems deeper than that with one or two.

24.) 03 Jul 2022 17:43:37
He is not the finished article, so much experience and one for developing further. Look what we done with Jack. Think he would be an excellent signing and working under Davis etc al would work. don't reckon he will come. Looking for a European TeM.

25.) 03 Jul 2022 17:44:29
Ferguson is only 22 and is still developing but for me Alex Lowry is a better player than him t
Honk he will be amazing for us the season.

26.) 03 Jul 2022 18:12:09
The same people saying they wouldn’t take ferguson are the same people telling you Scott wrights good enough for us. Says it all really.

27.) 03 Jul 2022 18:16:05
Personally think Ferguson would be a good signing. Would hopefully excel with better players around him . just like Jack has. Not many were overly happy when Jack signed. Same as Kamara and Lundstram. Some fans are way too quick to judge! If he signs and gives his all . will be a great addition.

28.) 03 Jul 2022 18:20:27
If he signed he’s getting my support 100% . A whole hearted player who is a good young Scottish player who would be better with better players beside him, available most games. We have signed a lot worse ?.

29.) 03 Jul 2022 18:21:38
I think honestly, the way the system works Ferguson. Will spend most of his time suspended.
He won't get away with the tackles he puts in as an Aberdeen player, if and when he comes to us.
Tops 1.5 Mill no more (add ons if you Like, he will go no where)

30.) 03 Jul 2022 18:23:39
Ferguson would be smart business as he would be a homegrown player that's capable of playing in our first team. He is probably the best young midfielder outside the old firm so makes sense. Would also get better at us with the players and coaches we have. He will increase in value and would weaken Aberdeen.

31.) 03 Jul 2022 18:36:31
If we have 2.5m to spend then a striker or right winger is needed unless we sell a midfielder and use that money to buy ferguson.

32.) 03 Jul 2022 21:41:53
Galston loyal

I honestly think Wright is going to be a great asset to us this season, saw a big difference in him towards end if season he has a lot of good in his locker, his pace can be electric, if he works on his final ball l decision making he will be a great player, he looks more solid now too, watched the highlights of the partick game and yes it may be youngsters I'm not sure the partick players but for two of the goals he was quality, left boys for absolute dead, like they were standing still, he's got a lot of great weapons in his armoury, tremendous pace, good drive and willingness to track back, yes can be frustrating but I honestly think we will see a huge difference in him this year, said it after the later of the season and after partick it confirms my thoughts, I'll be first to hold my hands up if I'm wrong but he will make a few people eat their words this season.

33.) 03 Jul 2022 21:54:38
Arfield get dropped because he’s no as good as Ferguson lol lowry plays a different position so won’t affect him. Hope we get him great we played with a bit a bite.

34.) 03 Jul 2022 23:47:58
Jack is just as dirty as fergie but some won’t admit it.

35.) 04 Jul 2022 10:10:08
I would take Ferguson in a heartbeat, he would provide cover for Ryan Jack and would also be good for a few goals per season. Definitely worth a punt.



27 Jun 2022 13:03:09
Boy on FF

I know this is going to set chaos on this discussion - however, some strong chat amongst bears in Asia (me being one of them) that the club has received a bid for a majority stake that has been treated fairly seriously and hence the delay on various signings to date.

I await to get battered by posting this. however, the chat is fairly strong amongst some credible bears.


1.) 27 Jun 2022 13:14:40
I suspect you’ll get a bit of a pass GJD83, the last poster just said we’re signing Bruce Anderson…… for £2.5m……. and he’ll be dynamite for us……. Honestly, you could say Peter Lawwell is leading a consortium to buy us and that wouldn’t top the Bruce Anderson rumour ??.

2.) 27 Jun 2022 13:29:38
Dado ???.

3.) 27 Jun 2022 13:34:43
Gjd there hs been rumours for last two seasons re Asian interest, wolthardt in particular, to buy 50% ie majority would result in a number of directors being bought out.
That would then lead to a compulsory offer to every shareholder

What happens to kings agreement with 1872.
I could see a slower build up by an individual.

4.) 27 Jun 2022 13:38:26
Gjd sent my reply too soon, is wolthardt involved or Scott.

5.) 27 Jun 2022 13:50:10
Maybe you sbould see the stats. I never believed it but after looking at them there could be something in it. Better stats than any of our forwards and he plays for livvie wgere he get less chances and defends more. So look at it logically and maybe you can why were in for Bruce Anderson.

6.) 27 Jun 2022 14:02:17
It’s not true and that’s coming from very reliable people.

7.) 27 Jun 2022 14:16:46
Surely if they were buying a majority stake they would have have to deal with a few different individuals:-
New Oasis ( DK ) - 16%
Douglas Park - 12%
George Taylor - 10%
Stuart Gibson - 9.25%
Borita - 6.4%
George Letham - 5%
Etc, etc.

8.) 27 Jun 2022 14:27:27
What's all be been said gjd83.

9.) 27 Jun 2022 14:48:37
Maybe some truth with some the deals made with our club and over there.

10.) 27 Jun 2022 15:40:39
Honestly Hagi, your just digging deeper now mate ??.

11.) 27 Jun 2022 15:52:04

It was sent to me through my watsap, I don't know what the general discussion was regarding the post sorry, I'm not on FF a lot

John I'm not sure sorry.

12.) 27 Jun 2022 16:04:20
Exactly MrPH. That’s why I say some one would need to buy up slowly or quickly if trying to achieve majority shareholding.

13.) 27 Jun 2022 16:06:25
Funny you bring this up. I was talking to a guy from work who was chatting about this today. His source has told him that there is interest and finances coming out of Asia, he thought Hong Kong. He also said its being put out there that the individual/ consortium want an original stake of under 50% so they don't need to offer the compulsory purchase of all shares as they would be wanting to work with some shareholders.

14.) 27 Jun 2022 16:25:55
Bellshilllad maybe there is some truth behind it, suppose only time wil tell.

15.) 27 jun 2022 16:26:53
only a matter of time and i’ve always felt that for 10 years or more

if not now there’s every possibility of asia interest in rangers.

16.) 27 Jun 2022 16:27:44
It’s also been mentioned on other sites as well. Might be something in it.

17.) 27 Jun 2022 16:54:02
I thought you had to make a compulsory offer for all shares at around 33%?

18.) 27 Jun 2022 16:55:08
Cool gjd.

19.) 27 Jun 2022 18:35:31
MrPH varies between 30-50 depending on single buyer deemed to being acting in consort.

20.) 27 Jun 2022 21:26:48
There was discussion last Season of new investment and it is my understanding that existing shareholders were involve. At the time the indication was Far Eastern Money but I also heard that the situation in Hong Kong made it complicated although I am also hearing Singapore and the USA.

We have a number of Shareholders that have been successful in the Financial markets that are considerably wealthy, (to the extent that they dwarf the net worth of the Parks Family) . One possibility is that those interested are already existing Shareholders. Whether DK and DP would be willing to sell is another question.

21.) 27 Jun 2022 23:08:04
I believe we r talking wolthardt and Scott. Who wanted to increase their share holdings.



23 Jun 2022 10:36:25
Apparently we have won the race to sign Zak Lovelace from Millwall, 16 year old, meant to be decent, also supposedly an improved offer on colak original offer was 1.8 million.


1.) 23 Jun 2022 10:45:51
Gjd yes Lovelace for a fee under 200k.

Brighton and liecster were knocked back in January for fees circa one million.

2.) 23 Jun 2022 12:24:01
I'm really happy with how the club have been targeting youth players these last few years, I watch quite a bit of the youth an B teams and not want to get ahead of myself but I believe we have some right cracking lads coming through, I really like McCausland I think that boy will go far, John do you know what happened with the boy Graham from county we signed? He was meant to be a real coup, think was at man u or was going there, he seemed to go off our radar has he been injured?

3.) 23 Jun 2022 12:46:32
Another great bit of business just now. just need to progress the lad enough for him to move into our first team set up. Was talking to a source that gas scouted the lad and he thinks this boy is going to be a cracking player if developed properly. He thinks year with our B side then the lad will be chapping 1st team door. Some exciting youth players at the club just now, futures looking bright.

4.) 23 Jun 2022 13:03:09
Yes he had an injury when we signed him, he was back playing in April scored a couple, 17.
Very good prospect GJD

Causal determinism should go far In the game.

5.) 23 Jun 2022 16:17:25
Cheers John, hopefully he comes back fitter and stronger.

This may be a daft question but what's the script with the edd? Haha I'm sorry I don't understand is that the runner of the page or something? How come edd comments sometimes but not others ? I'm preparing to get absolutely rinsed here for being daft but I don't understand it at all the edd says he was a Liverpool fan? can someone please explain the edd situation to me.


1.) 22 Jul 2022 13:21:25
ed is short for editor and they are the folk who edit all the rumours sites. They are the folk who keep sites like this one running day to day and do a great job. They monitor and read every post before it gets put up on here and if your post is unacceptable then simple it doesn't get posted.

2.) 22 Jul 2022 13:22:29
Quite sure the Editor's will let you know what's what GDG.

I don't want to come across as a smart arse mate, but my take on it is the Editors edit the content of posts to make sure they are permissible and alter or reject them if not.

3.) 22 Jul 2022 14:08:51
Thanks lads I just thought the page was set up by a rangers fan, it was the Liverpool fan comment that got me thinking what's going on here, I only came across the page by accident and I'm still bad at navigating it ?.

{Ed033's Note - The tabs at the top of the pages on this site take you to different pages on this site. Any tabs at the bottom of the pages take you to previous posts of that page type. So on this Rangers Banter page, the tabs at the bottom of this page take you to previous Rangers Banter posts.

4.) 22 Jul 2022 14:43:55
Cheers mate.



14 Jul 2022 23:47:00
Just wondering thoughts here lads, some may disagree but when I looked at the situation at the time I took off my blue tints, people were looking for the same money for Nathan Paterson as Kieran Tierney, as much as I loved Paterson and firmly believe he could grow into an an exceptional talent to even think we could command anywhere near that figure they got for him is in all honesty in my opinion (clearly ) quite preposterous in reality the money we got for Paterson was far superior than Tierney's, may sound daft but I'm not even sure he played more than 8 times, game ratio an team impact that's phenomenal doe , for people to question if bassey is worth 20 + million? Me personally fees are ridiculous but in today's market Calvin bassey is an absolute fukn steal for that type of money, his potential is far far superior than tierneys, don't mean any disrespect to Tierney as he is a class player but they got that fee on the back on playing nobody ( again no disrespect ) , big Shirley bossed it all through Europe and that is a FACT not even blue specs on, he's a modern football managers dream, young, solid, tall, fast, energetic, versatile, commited and probably biggest attribute outside the norm he just wants to play football with a smile on his dish, this guy will and deserves to go to the very top, I'll be gutted when he goes I really will I just hope it's not soon, but if he does he will leave with my full backing for his future, young players these days should look up to guys like him, genuinely appreciating the situation he's in full embracing it, I honestly doth my cap to the lad for the short space of after signing, nearly out the door C.V. nonsense to MOTM in a European final, actually quite staggering.


1.) 15 Jul 2022 07:03:36
My opinion is Rangers need the money before the player .
Would love Bassey to stay a on, but the reputed money on offer is a no brainier for the club .
If Rangers get the full 25 up front then it’s only one choice .
Maybe just maybe Ajax appeal’s to the player and or the premier league, money on offer to Bassey would be life Changing.

2.) 15 Jul 2022 08:04:49
We wouldn't want the full sum upfront, especially in a deal that size.

Would be great for our recruitment to move a second player on to the EPL as it's seen as the 'promise land' for players all over the world.

3.) 15 Jul 2022 08:32:58
I totally understand both sides of the calvin bassey situation ?Our club can't/ won't turn down £20million plus for the superb calvin bassey ?I also get/ realise that big shirley will be a massive loss to rangers, if indeed we do sell him before this transfer window slams shut, at the end of august ?I read connor goldson's interview regarding bassey this morning, saying how good he is and how even better he'll become and how he reckons calvin bassey can go and play in any of the big leagues, with any of the big clubs ?His view is bassey can go and play anywhere he wants and has an amazing career in front of him ?Big goldson added that big shirley has built in talent you can't coach or teach ie. his terrific pace and amazing strength ? What a compliment goldson gave bassey and i totally agree with everything goldson said about this young man, who also has a fantastic attitude and will to continually learn and get better and better ?
Whatever happens regarding bassey i totally wish the young man all the very best in his football career ?.

4.) 15 Jul 2022 08:46:39
If rangers get 20 million plus, add ons and sell on we would be absolutely mad not to take it.

5.) 15 Jul 2022 08:59:36
A good post GJD and I feel that £20m plus add-ons plus sell-on will see business being done. Sensible and achievable add-ons are so key, because it will keep funds rolling in to the balance sheet year after year, taking the pressure off a bit in future years.

6.) 15 Jul 2022 09:06:20
For me the bidding starts at £25m and we could not turn that kind of money down as much as it would be painful to see him go. Hopefully we get an extension to his deal and wait until next summer to sell.

7.) 15 Jul 2022 09:08:22
Love the big man but that type of money we really can't pass up, especially if we can get a 20 + % sell on clause added in as the clubs discussed ( no disrespect to Brighton or Ajax ) if he goes to anyone of them he will definitely have another move in him, the rate he's progressing and his potential I do believe he can go to the top.

8.) 15 Jul 2022 09:15:19
Bassey fits the business model perfectly.
Patterson was a squad player ( Gio said himself it was too good to turn down for a 2nd choice RB ) and came up through the ranks and made the club a huge profit for limited game time.
We can all moan / have an opinion on the Aribo fee but at the end of the day we received £6 million ( possibly rising to £10 million ) for someone in the last year of his deal who again fitted the business model.

9.) 15 Jul 2022 09:48:37
MPH the Aribo one in all honesty doesn't sit too well for me, yes it's decent doe 300k to 6.3 million but should have been higher starting price I loved big Joe really thought we could command a higher fee, you see other clubs selling players for larger fees where I just feel bar Paterson we sell our players short, feel even some fans / ex players de value our players and would punt them for buttons where other clubs put 0's on we take 0's off.

10.) 15 Jul 2022 10:36:23
I loved Aribo as well, GJD83.
But a player is only worth what someone else is willing to pay.
The club were also caught between a rock and a hard place with his contract situation.
He doesn't want to sign - what can the club do?

11.) 15 Jul 2022 11:55:03
MrPH, do some of your usual research and look at what we were giving him a week, especially around signing on and bonus.
Sit down when doing it.

12.) 15 Jul 2022 12:30:55
As much as I loved the big man I'd much rather sell for that fee than let him run it down and go for free just would have liked it to be more up front, the money was needed to freshen up the squad so got to look at the positive sides I suppose.



12 Jul 2022 01:50:26
Before I even type this I know it will upset some but sadly over the last few days reading what mainly is a great site there is a lot of sniping over opinions, if an opinion is shared in a decent fashion then how can it be wrong? We may not always agree but surely this is what the second section ( banter ) is about, I came off social media about 5 years ago ( Facebook ) best thing I ever did, seing the petty snipes an gripes off them absolutely destroyed me, I only have watsap now an my life is far better for it as I used to get mad at the obsessed goon posts, I actually came across this site by pure chance and on a whole it's class it's become a daily ritual, I'm quite sure I'm not alone, it's i presume mainly bears on here I know I'm classed as a " newbie " and might not hold any sway at the min but we are all here for the love of the club, and we all want what's best, some of the arguements I feel at times is like who's better mccoist or hately, both class just depends on what your looking for, anyway sorry for the essay troops, United we stand, Divided we fall WATP.


1.) 12 Jul 2022 05:24:16
Quite right fella. you're spot on.

2.) 12 jul 2022 05:44:45
good morning mate, have a beautiful 12th.

3.) 12 Jul 2022 06:28:39
Gjd good post, you keep posting.

4.) 12 Jul 2022 06:49:14
Gjd great post. I done the same with Facebook I 100% agree with you best thing I ever done. Some of the nonsense on it would lower your mood.

5.) 12 Jul 2022 07:13:22
Well said my friend, I hate FB as well. Hardly ever on the thing!

6.) 12 Jul 2022 07:14:56
The sniping is fun to read it makes the site more interesting just don’t take it to heart.

7.) 12 Jul 2022 07:19:46
Terrific post GJD83 and you're correct this does happen on here quite a bit and i hold my hands up that i've done it regarding other supporters opinions but i've also had it done to myself many times on here! I think i've calmed down a bit regarding my participation in this sort of behaviour because you're correct it isn't called for! So again mate i applaud you for a very heartfelt, well written post ???.

Dictionary definition of BANTER: 'The playful and friendly exchange of teasing remarks'. As this site is called Rangers Banter, presumably the moderators thought the definition appropriate. Like others, I don't do Facebook, Twitter or any other social media apart from LinkedIn, which is a business media site, and of course this one! Let's exchange 'banter' but cut out the personal sniping.

2Blue, whilst I agree that sometimes it’s fun to read the sniping, I think it’s unfair to invalidate how someone else feels about it. It’s obviously enough of an issue to compel someone to make a whole post about it. On my side, that’s perhaps part of the problem: before posting maybe there could be more thought out into how things might make others feel. I’m in the same boat where I was a long term reader and wanted to participate but very quickly found several commenters to be a bit rude. I come here because I love Rangers, not for increased anxiety. I think that it’s a good maxim to follow to consider whether or not a post would be something you would say to another in real life. If not, then maybe reword. And certainly don’t invalidate the feelings of another fan by dismissing their genuine post. Banter is light hearted, the fact that some members here are in and off because others have made them feel bad is perhaps evidence that it’s a bit more than banter. Just my opinion but I’m pretty sure there are more people who feel the same. A website forum can only be successful with a community. The same few people being passive aggressive isn’t community it’s territorial.

Welcome GJD83, great post, as someone has said, don't take it personally if someone snipes at you, keep calm, keep posting mate.

11.) 12 Jul 2022 07:56:13
Correct irvger.

12.) 12 Jul 2022 08:17:43
Happy 12th TT.

13.) 12 Jul 2022 08:19:59
Welcome GJD I’m the same came off Facebook etc for the same reasons! The sites good most of the time folk do get a bit carried away from time to time but on the whole its good, I hope you enjoy posting ??.

14.) 12 Jul 2022 08:37:11
This is 2022 and unfortunately everyone is so easily offended. Chill out guys! State your opinions without fear or favour and expect differing views. But don't sulk it's not personal lol lol. Man up. oops . person up people.

15.) 12 Jul 2022 08:50:55
Ronald, I agree with what you are saying, some people take criticism quite badly and are affected by it. In the past on this site I was on the receiving end of some mean comments, but you just have to get on with it, take it on the chin, and pick yourself up. Its life, like it or not. Perhaps people shoulld take a little bit of time and think carefully before shooting someone down.

16.) 12 Jul 2022 08:55:32
Fair play GJD83, from what I've seen when a few people have a go, there's usually plenty of others come out and call them out for it, it's a reflection of society, as is social media but overall its a warm, well balanced site with most of us having the one thing in common, that we love our club.

17.) 12 Jul 2022 10:12:37

Great Post.
Its opinions and banter.
If they have nothing nice or positive to say move on.
Try and be supportive.

18.) 12 Jul 2022 10:19:04
Don't Forget 'WE ARE ALL THE PEOPLE' folks.

19.) 12 Jul 2022 12:06:47
I have been guilty of it and it has happened to me but just need to take it as it is banter no point getting upset over it mate just ignore it when it happens and keep posting.

20.) 12 Jul 2022 12:12:09
GJD - Welcome to the site and keep posting ?.

21.) 12 Jul 2022 14:53:05
Cheers lads, I actually quite like reading different takes / angles on things from fellow bears, it's brilliant site / page.

Seen the B team lost 6-3 to Glentoran, going through the team selection I noticed trialist listed for sub, does anyone know if that was the boy Thompson ishaka from the previous game think it was against Elgin? Boy looks a player an a half I'm hoping it is him as I did hear he was going to N. Ireland with the B team.


1.) 10 Jul 2022 23:30:55
Yeah mate was him apparently been offered a 2 year deal may be 3 I’m not sure.

2.) 11 Jul 2022 05:07:57
Cheers Stevie, I really hope we can pull this one off, he looks a very talented laddie.

3.) 11 Jul 2022 07:30:54
Was Robbie fowlers son involved as I read he had joined on trial.

4.) 11 Jul 2022 07:59:08
Sound bro, I think I read he’s from that kinetic foundation… same place aribo came through before joining charlton I believe…
Could be gettinv mixed up with yfeko or maybe both are a should really go check before posting tis stuff haha have a look mate ??.

5.) 11 Jul 2022 09:36:18
It was Ishaka and scored boy is a real talent,
Fowler’s son was involved with the u18s.

6.) 11 Jul 2022 10:44:04
Yeah I seen somewhere fowlers 16 yo son is on trial aswell.

I'm not a doom monger and hope I don't come accross that way but this colak stuff right from the start hasn't filled me with great enthusiasm, out of everyone we could go for we pick a guy who practically put us out the CL qualifiers under our previous management team, to me it looks like Gio or Makaay haven't had an input in it, and it's been on the cards since Gerrard, I could well be wrong and they have identified him but I'd like to think given Makaays track record in that field he would be allowed to chose or pick their own striker,? I do understand at clubs now players are put to them an then pick out of a list but surely not when your only looking to add one possibly 2 players, I really hope Gio and Makaays are getting a say in the transfers.


1.) 02 Jul 2022 19:02:54
I would imagine that Gio knows exactly what he's got in his pocket.

2.) 02 Jul 2022 19:22:53
Usually when people state that they are not a doom monger then proceed by mongering some doom means that they are in fact a doom monger.

I was very sceltic of caolak signing but I actually think he's looked good at times, he's starved of service, he seems to chase an fight, his header at livvy was excellent and took his goal. aell in pre season too think that was offside too, to judge him this early is tad early, I'd like to see him with a partner like a good old fashioned 4-4-2, no idea why we can't play two up to away to teams that sit camped in, completely baffles me.

Quite a pointless an petty post if you ask me, should we maybe put a score board in the corner for who gets what right? Maybe a wee trophy at the end of the season.

I thought been were excellent second half could have been about 8, the boy nouble was outstanding first half he was unplayable, livvy made it hard for us and at times we made it hard for ourselves defensively but all in all on a tight astro park at livvy first game of season we showed we have character and created some terrific chances, quite happy in the end and we were very unlucky with colaks offside ( never offside ) a huge 3 points, not only for the league but gives us confidence going into the CL games rather than negativity.

Thanks lads I just thought the page was set up by a rangers fan, it was the Liverpool fan comment that got me thinking what's going on here, I only came across the page by accident and I'm still bad at navigating it ?.

I really hope we can progress but no game will be easy, I do think this is a far harder tie than malmo was and look how that turned out, we need to show this team respect but not too much, I do think we are capable of beating all of them but we could have possibly 5 plus new players in the team they may not settle in so good an take time, I really want to avoid PSG the most, I feel they have recruited really well ( feel we are a certainty to get them if we get through )
