I'll be honest the Reuben's turn my stomach as well.

I have quite successfully compartmentalised things for the moment, but my mental gymnastics don't stand up to any honest scrutiny

 

I'm still enjoying looking forward to the season for once

 

Exactly where I am, with a particular emphasis on the part in bold - with the exception of the fact that neither do any of those on the part of the people attacking the club either, with the possible exception of amnesty international. No one commenting on this from within football gives a fuck about the actual realities of this. They don't care about Yemen, they don't care about treatment of women, they don't care about journalists and political dissidents. All they care about is that it didn't happen to their club.

 

For my attempt at the mental gymnastics though, I have arrived at this: if I ever had to vote for this country to stop funding atrocities around the world through willfully co-operating with these sorts of regimes, I would. 100% guaranteed. But while that's not on the paper, I am not going to take one for the team and stop following my football club in an act that will achieve precisely fuck all, and which against a backdrop of complete lack of action on the real issues anywhere else, would only be handing benefit to other despotic, rich psychopaths who happen to back other football clubs. Given that this is presently an 'evil prevails' situation no matter which way the benefit goes, I'm just going to keep supporting my fucking football club.

Putting aside the fact that he’s English and played in England until the age of 22 he’s definitely not PL quality from what I’ve seen of him. He benefits hugely from shite opposition. 
 

My point is that of the handful of decent Scottish players who’ve come south in recent years I don’t think any of them have been from Rangers.

Wonder if Ashworth will repeat this here.
