With an overnight frost across Eastern Scotland, it was certainly freezing cold last night and the temperature isn't much higher this morning under clear skies. On this side of the Forth, today's race meeting at Musselburgh has already been abandoned so I don't hold out much hope for Rangers return to action after the winter break tonight across the water in Fife. We should know around lunchtime if the game will go ahead after the covers come off the Central Park pitch at 11am. Fingers crossed this preview isn't moot!
The winter break arrived at a fantastic time for Rangers. From the league, one domestic cup competition and our Europa League run we’ve played the equivalent of a full league campaign with 38 games fitted in since 12th July with very few weeks going past without two games being played.
Over ten years ago, in a moment of unguarded and wholesome clarity, Tom English, now of the BBC, once declared that “Celtic don’t want consistency from referees, they want decisions, good or bad, in their favour.”
He was right of course. It applies to all teams. It applies to all fans in the latent natural bias that exists in being a supporter. I don’t watch a Rangers match as an impartial observer and any decisions for and against my club matter and in the fog of battle you will claim and cling onto almost anything. The commentators are there to provide insight, information and hopefully some balanced reason to the unfolding spectacle.
Towards the end of last season, we launched our Gersnet Podcast and we've been delighted with the response across the community with thousands of views and subscribers already across the various platforms. As promised the pod will be available on a regular basis so today we're very happy to bring you our last episode of 2018. May all our listeners have a happy and prosperous new year!
...she'd be yer Uncle!" So the saying goes.
There’s a basic rule of thumb that wherever competition exists then you have to put effort in to just stand still, to keep your place. To stay ahead you have to adapt, react and put the work in, put more and better work in than those you’re competing against. As soon as you ease off then others will step up and take your place - especially when that place is at the top of the pile.
