Mick The Week

Its that time again, Friday afternoon and a time to reflect on the week gone by. Its International week, surely that means its been a quiet, dull affair…well not quite..

 

Over the weekend, something strange occurred. It was like something out of Hollywood,…

A wobbly team of rag taggle depressed diddies, bereft of a manager of note, lined up in Stirling expecting to be ritually humiliated and soon to be hiding under their beds after yet another embarrassing defeat in whats been a shambolic season so far. Sure enough thats  exactly what happened to Rangers once again

 

On the sunday Celtic fans found themselves nursing sore sides and sore thumbs from constant laughing and tweeting about the defeat to Sevco. The happiest man on the planet though was the Stirling Albion Manager (John) Greig McDonald who wasnt even at the game but was away getting married.

Our best wishes go to the happy couple

While it was good times for the newly-weds, spare a thought for poor Stirling keeper, Sam Filler , who suffered  a dud eye after a collision ( insert standard Lee McCulloch elbow reference here – Ed) and was substituted after a gallant first half show of defiance.  Rangers did claim Stirling had an advantage but the ref was having none of it!

Rangers manager Ally McCoist tried to deny the defeat from a team that had been bottom of the bottom of Scottish Football was an embarrassment and said his position or himself hadnt been affected by the shocking result. The evidence suggests otherwise

 

Celtic fans recovered from sore sides to make it to Celtic Park on Sunday to see the side beat Hearts and sit proudly at the top of the League.  Sammi was on form  and scored a peach

To be fair, Sammi’s winner was with a little help from the Hearts keeper who allowed the ball to easily squirm home. Manager John McGlynn said his keeper had been a little too generous to the Swashbuckling Celts

After the Celtic win, the lads headed off to International duty. The Scotland v Wales games was looking bad enough for Celtic with Joe Led, Skoosh and James Forrest involved ( Matthews still  injured) but then the evil Craig Levein decided to call up Kris Commons to take the place of Robert Snodgrass.

Shocked Celtic fans  lined up outside Hampden at the news that yet another Hoops player risks injury before such big Champions League games ahead.

 

 

We understand that Levein may have left via a side door with Peter Huston

 

Fraser Forster joined up with England as they launched their new Football headquarters. While the facility was lauded by the Press and even Steven Pressley, there were some worries about its location despite anyappropriateness

 

As if that wasnt enough for poor Fraser to handle, he also had to deal with Press rants about  Roy Hodgson. Seems the England manager was feeling rather sad after a rather embarrasing adventure on a train where he let certain secrets slip out.

 

To close the week, Charles Green launched his IPO offering. Its only been 5 month since he took over with a mythical 30 million pounds heading to the bank balance.  You can say what you like but the guy knows how to sell a dream despite his last efforts at Sheffield resulting in less than favourable reviews

 

Chuck claims the proposed issue will raise £20m and this will go towards buying players in a transfer embargo and building a hotel and casino at Ibrox.

Apropos of nothing, here is a picture that we laughed at so many many years ago

Chuck has also claimed that he will no longer allow Sally and the players to talk to the Press but will have all coverage shown on Rangers Media. He also hopes to set up a hotline to Sally for any fans to air their views. Here is Ally advertising how much in pounds its gonna cost.
