FC Zenit St Petersburg 2-0 Rangers

No gloating. No piss taking. No ha ha on the blog.

In its simplest terms, R*ngers did not do enough tonight to deserve to win the Uefa Cup. Don't believe me? Think I would say that, anyway? Just look how R*ngers own fans reacted after Zenit's first goal went in.

Just under twenty minutes to play and the deathly silence and resigned resignation - yep, resigned resignation - was palpable 3500 miles away in Brooklyn. If R*ngers fans were ever considered the 'twelfth man' for the club, Walter Smith should put them on the transfer list tomorrow morning when he gets back to Ibrox. Shocked at how they didn't try and gee up their team.

R*ngers played better in the second half, but they never really deserved to get a sniff of the game. Kirk Broadfoot was a lucky hunny bunny with that stonewall pen at the end of the first half, and Ferguson was kidding himself with that penalty claim in the second half.

What does it mean for the rest of R*ngers season? Well, they were neither robbed nor spanked - and that meteorite was a no show - so they're still red hot favourites to win the domestic treble.

totally correct about their fan's reaction after the first goal. Pathetic little Hun. Must try harder.

PS. This blog is my first port of call now whenever a big (to small) footie match is on now. Hope you are plesed with yourself.

Some of us go out of our way to insult both sides. What's that saying? You can take the Hun out of the Bhoy, but you can't take the Bhoy out of the Hun?

According to Kara, I am permanently pleased with myself.

If I was one those blogging types who liked to post comments about themselves on their sidebar - 'He's great' . . . 'He's an arsehole . . . you know the gist - your comment would take pride of place.

Hak,

I thought my posts about the final were an exercise in restraint.

No nippy comments about the camera team's inability to find a good looking R*ngers fan in the stadium during the 'panning the crowd' shots.

I guess my wee bruv' is an aberration.

Which they did do of course -- she was blonde -- wot a fucking surprise!

I most certanly do. They stared appearing when blogging became something that complete fucking tossers engaged in rather than the specialised creatures we are. Back slap there...did you feel it?

There's something here which might make you gag.

Was that the R*ngers supporter who still had the lens cap on her camera? For some reason that image caused much hilarity for the Fox Soccer Channel commentating team.

On the subject of the Fox Soccer Channel. They had an interesting choice of targetting advertising immediately after game: a Time Life six CD set of Christian Evangelical pop songs. Never seen the advert on FSC before. Never seen R*ngers on FSC before.

Draw your own conclusions.

Hak,

I think that video wass funny. I bet some Nats were pissed when they saw it.

PS - See how the advert reinforces certain stereotypes? That Celtic supporter was so much better looking than her R*ngers boyfriend.

And lunch is lunch and tea is tea!

Still -- the Hun lost.
