You could say boycotting: no intention of ever going to see the Warriors playing your new big team in any match.

I don't think your mob will see the season out.

Nice to see you back here though! clown

Deserve Better Gee thanks Glad. Its good to be back. I think yesterdays scoreline actually flattered Stenny.Very Happy In truth I would have to say they were abject. I have seen a few teams come to Ibrox in the last couple of seasons and Stenny seemed to be totally overwhelmed. Perhaps it was the demonstrations taking place inside the ground and the distraction of of fans(including me) telling our current board to GTF.Laughing Anyway I am expecting a tougher game for the Ramsdens Cup at your ground. I was also sad you never played in your claret colours. I like a bit of tradition down Ibrox way..

Bewlay, you, and your fellow supporters, Warriors fans who attended the game at Ibrox, and the troops brought in by Jack Irvine yesterday, are all being used: surely you realise this by now.

I won’t be going to the Ramsdens Cup game either.

The Tory Conference started in Manchester today: many people would be furious if 400 members of the Armed Forces turned up at the event, invited by David Cameron. If they marched around the Main Hall, some wearing Conservative rosettes, and jumped around as the party members sang ‘Land Of Hope and Glory’, outrage would be off the scale.

Armed Forces leaders couldn’t allow that sort of thing to happen, of course.

But it did, yesterday, at Ibrox, where some Warriors fans clearly learned (or relearned) a (long forgotten) lesson.



Here’s some collated quotes, many from the official Stenhousemuir site, and one from a parent of a player:

“I spent most of the game feeling sick not just because of what was going on on the pitch.”

“I will NEVER set foot in that shitehole again. The atmosphere was poisonous.
Being such a long time since I stopped going there I had forgotten why I left.
Cretins r us

Absolutely horrible atmosphere.
Military?
Twats in a uniform more like.....and I say that as a guy with strong military ties and history.
Disgraceful.”

“Anyone who goes back to Ibrox needs their head examined. What a vile club.”

“I was a Rangers fan from 1963 when my father first took me to Ibrox until the late 80's when I had had enough of the sickening bile I had to listen to in the stands.
Today's visit to Ibrox will be my last ever in my life.
A disgraceful display of jingoistic garbage which any military commanding officer should be ashamed of.
Men in military (RAF) uniform actually taunting away fans from the pitch?
Add to that the vile garbage we had to suffer from cretins who couldn't get close enough to tell us what they really thought of us "****** b*****ds" as they waddled their bellies up and down.
Stenny fans who could not give a flying f**k about the shite they were bellowing at us had to endure that bile.
The score reflected an atrocious performance from Stenhousemuir.....I have never been more proud to a be a supporter of them and at the same time sad for what now passes for support at a team I once adored.
My decision to leave Rangers behind never seemed so right until today.

I wish Rangers nothing but failure....it's what you deserve.”

“However, the whole place made me feel nauseous. After the feeling of "wow, Stenny are playing somewhere like this!" subsided (pretty much right after the first goal), I wanted to leave immediately and get as far away from that place as possible. I wasn't bothered about the Rangers fans pointing and shouting and gloating at us - you'd get that at any ground, and some sections of the Stenny support did their best to antagonise them (hilarious scenes at the end of the match when that fat fuck twirling the Red Hand of Ulster flag was in tears carping to the stewards) - it was the insularity of it all, the "hey, isn't it great to support Rangers?" insecure, self-congratulatory pats on the backs dished out throughout the match, and particularly at half-time.

Rangers, for the best part, are an angry, bitter club and appear to need constant reminding of how wonderful the whole thing is. At half-time, Nacho Novo was wheeled out for no discernible reason other than to tell the fans how great it was to play for them, but the whole Armed Forces day celebrations made me feel grossly uncomfortable. I can't put my finger on it - I respect the armed forces, but I cannot understand the reciprocal back slapping between them and Rangers. I don't want to understand it. The impromptu Bouncy with the Blue Order was the low point. You thought we didn't even have a second half to play.

If that's how Rangers and their fans want to support their team, then fair enough. Who am I to critique it? Maybe it's just my parochial squeamishness. But the whole affair was deeply unpleasant and I'm going to have to think long and hard before making the second journey to Govan in February.”

“They really are a vile club with vile supporters.”
“Hang on, I take back the bit about the singing from my previous post. I've just seen a video on P+B filmed at half-time with supporters singing "fuck Bobby Sands, he's dead".”
“That's not the worst bit, my son showed me a post on you tube I think...
Badges of both clubs with 8-0 written underneath and a photo of B S with ate nothing written underneath it.
I like Rab used to go regularly to Ibrox, but found that so called history more than distasteful.
Disgusting.”
“If you heard no sectarian singing and saw no taunting then it is because you have forgotten what they are and you didn't want to hear or see it.
At the beginning we were standing applauding the armed services just like everyone else.
We all have military ties and family connections as well as you do.
But it degenerated into a sad spectacle.

As for the fat cretinous dickheads who spent the whole game screaming at us and not giving a toss about the scoreline...well pretty standard from what I remember.”

“I can't put in to words what a disgusting club they are.
Facing away from the game for 90 minutes waving a Northern Ireland/Red Hand flag? Armed forces doing a bouncy with Rangers fans?
As embarrassing as our 'performance'.”
“I support our armed forces too but stopped applauding when they started acting like idiots. To be fair a few of them namely the officers looked a little bemused and embarrassed by the others. It did feel very much like we are going to have a party and Stenhousemuir are invited as long as you promise not to get in the way. I was saying to a friend last night that it seemed to me that a lot of Rangers fans were there to take part in the back slapping and the " we are the people nonsense " and weren't that interested in the game itself.”
“That is exactly why I found the whole afternoon uncomfortable. Couldn't care less about the twat with his Red Hand of Ulster flag, but what on earth did all the Armed Services stuff have to do with a football match? Were there similar events taking place at other SPFL fixtures?”
“A vile club. That about sums it up.
How anyone can go to football with so much hatred inside them is beyond me. That fat weapon never even looked at the park once instead he waved a Northern Ireland flag for 90 minutes looking towards the away support.
What is the deal with the armed forces? Why do people ejaculate over a vocation that they chose? Absolutely baffling.”


The Armed Forces were at Ibrox yesterday on the invitation of the Ibrox board of directors. Of course, a protest against that same board of directors had been publicised for the match, but that would have been purely coincidental.

Glad, some of the prose you posted from the “real” stenny board was high quality, they bucked the trend that all football fans (bar those on here) are scum. An interesting read, thank you for posting. If any of them wish to write something for EC...........




But no, all football fans are scum.

One of the writers is main contributor to Tell Him He's Pele . Good site that.

Re football fans being scum: you're not a tattooist are you? Some years ago, I went to get a tattoo relating to football from a big biker type in Glasgow: the shop was quiet, save a couple of nubile inked goth girls lounging around. He looked at the design I'd printed off, looked at me, looked back at my picture, then stated 'All football fans are arseholes'. I began a wee argument with him, as that is my bag, but reflected I'd be trusting him to permanently ink my leg.

I made my excuses and left. clown

Gladstone. I have thought long and hard about what you posted. I have an idea. Would you like to join me in the Directors Box at Ibrox? I am certain you will experience the very best that Rangers FC  have to offer and it may go some way to restoring your faith in humanity.Smile
