It so happens this started the match after the ball 'disappeared' into a taxi parked in car park. This car park is a god send for people like me to ferry fans with mobility issues. It is also critical for our older fans. Very poor decision from the Board. I would be interested in the sudden justification? Finally, what about our poor suffering neighbours in East Stewart Street?
In the midst of all that is going on-all things Rover's,I would like to say that a number of directors and Ronnie have put their heart and soul into the club,and I have seen this with my own eyes.Without them we would have been extinct.In saying that,I question the "revolving"door that the director's position has become,and wonder if one or two individuals are in it for their own self aggrandising means,as I see no reason that they are using contacts or contributing financially to the club.As I say people like Lorraine,Ronnie,Gordon Lind ,Scott and the chair of the Trust,along with Bill Walker to name but a few should be highly commended for their immense efforts over the years. Hopefully all the current issues raised by your guys will bear fruition.
For those that think this fixture should be scrapped, think again . This is a great fixture just needs to be taken seriously by the management team and marketed properly. Great potential to generate funds and with some Celtic staff there the players have an opportunity to stand out, you never know.
The match is in memory of the great man. If this bond is broken it will be very difficult to reforge in years to come.
Bring the trophy back to Cliftonhill. That'll get people talking.
It's a great opportunity and a lift for everyone in the playing side. As I said last year we are lucky to have this connection. Not many clubs do. I was at the Celtic festival on Sunday and anytime Big Jock was mentioned I informed them they can go see the big man's signature at Sumerlee because he played for the rovers. Alisdair supplied the autograph book with Willie Findlay and co. Celtic didnt have the big man's autograph on display. We do. I personally, and commercially, would make this the biggest pre season match each year.
Whilst appreciating the sentiment behind holding this fixture,I would see it as a chance for a certain few to spew their bile.I among many reasons-supporter being one-go to see the Rovers to avoid that element of society.
