Fan zones and flags

231

As we predicted months ago, Glasgow will be open for the Euros, the Scottish government yesterday went to the extent of confirming 6,000 spectators could attend the Glasgow Green Fan Zone – with testing optional.

It was made clear to me by sources inside Holyrood that the Westminster Government would ensure games would go ahead at Wembley and there was no way the Scottish Government would have a flag waving exercise in London without the same exhibition of a different nation in Glasgow.

All of the key indicators are pointing in the wrong direction and international holidaymakers face renewed restrictions, but flags, and all that.  No wonder the hospitality industry is in uproar.

    Is it party politicking to call out the Scottish Government for allowing a facoured fan group to gather but no others to do so?

     

     

    The London situation is different because they do allow fan attendance at live events already; they are continuing a more liberal approach of not banning everything (and yes the British Govt. has done so much wrong during this pandemic) but the later allowance of small crowds has not proved to be one of these major faux pas. The Tartan Army should not be traelling there in numbers and should be called out forcibly by everyone, including the Scottish Government.

     

     

    It is a legitimate position to feel that , with Covid still threatening a comeback, we should restrict heavily. The Engish Authority can be guilty of Covid-endangerment under that charge but not be accused of hypocrisy.

     

     

    The charge of hypocrisy only falls on the political group that banned every small gathering but then allows crowds of 3k plus 3k more for a favoured group.

    I didn’t post on behalf of the SNP every morning that’s a lie

    The Scotland national team support was once heavily made-up of Rangers fans but that relationship has deteriorated over the past 30 years.

    Not questioning your credentials of who you are, not my place and respect to you.

     

     

    However, that’s not what I read and then it stopped once the election was over.

    We are being played. After the Euros expect increased controlling measures.

  9. despising the Scottish media and Celtics failure to stand up to it.

     

     

    Read a player linked with Rangers – “Rangers are step up….”

     

    Read player linked with Celtic – “Watford are a bigger club …”

     

     

    Anything negative , taken out off context – its deplorable and sure someone can call these out on a weekly basis!

     

     

    Don’t underestimate the power of propaganda – it influences players decisions, fans mentality , the whole energy around the club. We just sit back and let it happen!

    T I have gone like so many and have missed out on seeing close family in this past year

     

     

    I have missed out on attending family and friends funerals

     

     

    I have even missed my sat morning Joust playing 5s

     

     

    More seriously 150,000 lost lives in the UK due to inadequate preparation and action in dealing with a global pandemic including the Scottish Govt failing, the fan zones in comparison to the sacrifices that so many have endured are completely unjustifiable, the UK is having increasing numbers of infections due to variants

     

     

    I’m opposed to the fan zones in a global pandemic with the numbers of covid infections rising, everything else IMO is politicking

     

     

    Hope you are well

    It was a real joke when we were so dominant. It is now back to being perceived by some gullible’s as a reality.

  16. Is the fan zone limited to Glasgow?

     

     

    I know some of the younger crowd in work have decided to holiday in London, that will end well.

  17. SAINT STIVS,

     

     

    I’m sure I used to park my car down that way on the opposite side of the road for most home games. That was in the days of, “Mister, can I watch your car?”

    Back page of todays Sun caught my eye, big bold black capitol letters,

     

     

    “I couldn’t go says Defoe, now I’ll help Rangers dominate for years”

     

     

    Not compete, DOMINATE.

     

     

    Win win for them, wind up the Celtic fans whilst the sevconians buy the rag.

  20. any news from Celtic on anything?? They must know the fans are anxious and keen to get some structure and a statement of intent from the board!

     

     

    We look weak and disinterested – DD acting like he doesn’t care less.

     

     

    I’m hoping the silence is imminent announcement of major proportion – investment, signings, backroom staff – something to excite the fans and get us back on board for this challenge!!

     

     

    I hope so but losing confidence that the board really care – Has the GB demoralized them with their childish demonstrations?

  21. MARTIM1980 on 9TH JUNE 2021 5:01 PM

     

     

    Timmy7 speaks ably and clearly for himself as I do

     

     

    You using language such as this “It’s not a lie you’re first up to go mental” is unacceptable, calling people mental, who on earth do you think you are

     

     

    Paul67 can supply details he has my permission

     

     

    nothing more to be said

  22. LIONROARS67 on 9TH JUNE 2021 5:51 PM

     

     

    ‘Going mental’

     

     

    As a reactionary state commonly used in Glasgow to descibe rage.

     

     

    Reasoned responses generally wouldn’t get described as such.

     

     

    Still looked the 1 person 2 monikers😉

  23. Different to you are mental, which yes i agree would be much worse.

     

     

    Acting crazy different to being crazy and so on and so on…..

  24. Not a huge fan of blaming the SMSM for all of our ills.

     

    I no longer listen, read or click. Not surprised to read (on here) that the headlines are as they always were.

     

    We do, however, need to address the facts. We were a distant second in the league last year. 25 points behind the first placed team. Closer to fourth place than to first.

     

    We have no permanent manager and have not had for over 100 days. Our captain has left. Several loanees are due to depart. A number of our first team have expressed a desire to leave. It is likely that some will.

     

    We need to face facts here.

     

    Urgently
