I'm not sure if I posted it here, but if I did I apologise for being repetitive. Again.
One of my strange little quirks is that I love language and how it constantly evolves and absorbs influences. (Strangely Shrek was not impressed when I told him how amazing it was that "Meet them aff the bus " is now frequently used on these boards). So in love with language am I that while most of you watch Countdown to lech over Rachel Riley I fantasise about sharing a glass of wine with Suzy Dent and getting all geeky over etymology.
Anyway, on the subject of nicknames: I was the fist to suggest that Big Brian be known as Naughty Boy since we already had a Messiah. Imagine my shock when he came on against Tiggers and I heard dozens of people in the stand I was in calling out, "You're not the messiah: you're a very Naughty Boy."
Actually, I was slightly befuddled by beer at that point and it wasn't until Sunday afternoon that I realised what had occurred. We all know we have a shared argot on here but to hear complete strangers using it in a public arena is way too Toby (to quote Joss Wheedon).

By that logic let's just name CDP 'Glasgow's next No8' and not bother with the rest of the Edinburgh team.

Suggestions seen occasionally:
Matt Smith - Doctor Who
Peter Murchie - The Murch
Also 'Twolangis' which really makes me laugh more than it should.

Scotland's AI fixtures have been announced:

Samoa
Australlia
New Zealand

Good to start against one of the lower ranked teams to hopefully give us momentum going into the big two. That is a tough series!

Tom English is one of the best rugby journalists out there.

He is utterly hated by Rangers fans though - his Twitter feed is quite funny to see what everyone is saying to him!

Very warm and honest video interview with BVC too. I've made my feelings known about his removal, but he really does sound like a top bloke. I hope he nails it at Montpellier and in some ways I hope he takes a few Scots with him alongside Hinesy. You never know he could be tempted back one day with a DOR role?

I'm surprised Rangers fans know how to use Twitter.

Well they've not had much glory lately, but to be fair they are only 5 years old as a club!

He could have supported Forres Mechanics, Inverness or even Aberdeen.

But no....one half of the ugly sisters.

To go back to rugby.

I am really perplexed about Edinburgh and their consistency at the moment. How can they win their group in Europe but be so sh1te in the league.

Bizarre.

Post by IanBru on Wed 25 Jan 2017, 9:55 pm

It's a strange one, my dad grew up supporting Rangers, and if it was purely down to religious association I'd support them too. But during my time living in Glasgow I saw the really dark side of things, especially having to defend my English sister-in-law from some Rangers fans latching onto an Orange march (carrying, ironically, the Union flag) because she had the 'wrong' accent. I can't help wondering how many of those numbskulls actually practice the religion they profess to be defending... My inevitable conclusion is that I want nothing to do with either club, and my Dad feels the same.

BT and Sky love to make a point about Glasgow being a 'football city', as though it makes the Warriors' achievements that much more notable. To a certain extent they're right - we do compete with the round-ball game - but it goes a bit deeper than that. There are still people in Glasgow who call rugby a 'posh boys' sport', while speeding off in their Audi Q7s and BMW X5s, and blowing far more money for an Ibrox or Parkhead season ticket than I do for Scotstoun (and no European matches included!).

Where BT need a bit of nuance is the breakdown of the Scotstoun faithful. There are a lot of people from traditional rugby backgrounds, then there are people who like both sports, then there is a sizeable chunk of supporters who have been turned off by sectarianism and want some Friday night entertainment that they can take the kids to, enjoy a beer, and talk to opposition supporters without any 'risk'.

So in many ways, Warriors haven't grown despite the Old Firm; it could be argued that they have grown because of the nature of the Old Firm. Of course, the vast majority of Old Firm supporters are perfectly normal, and even the '90-minute warriors' are fine the rest of the time.

As a postscript, my cousins were born and raised on a beef farm in Alberta, Canada. One of my earliest memories was visiting them in the summer and playing football in one of the fields. They'd rigged up goals at either end of the field, with 'Rangers FC' and 'Celtic' painted above each goal. My cousin explained, in a broad Canadian accent, that they'd put the Celtic goal at one end because it was less sheltered, so the cows liked to s**t there. Yay.

I saw a news article the other day (I can't remember which paper it was in though) where it said that more kids are taking up rugby in schools than there are those taking up football.

I'm sure it had old Dodson in the article!

Although football is still more popular, the growth of Rugby now exceeds the roundball game!

IanBru wrote:It's a strange one, my dad grew up supporting Rangers, and if it was purely down to religious association I'd support them too. But during my time living in Glasgow I saw the really dark side of things, especially having to defend my English sister-in-law from some Rangers fans latching onto an Orange march (carrying, ironically, the Union flag) because she had the 'wrong' accent. I can't help wondering how many of those numbskulls actually practice the religion they profess to be defending... My inevitable conclusion is that I want nothing to do with either club, and my Dad feels the same.

I'm not going to defend the behaviour of a large number of Rangers fans and, in truth, were I picking a Scottish football team to support from afresh I would choose Inverness Caley Thistle, my local Prem side and where I was born, and stay well away from the Old Firm. However, I've supported Rangers since I was 9, and had every Rangers home top for roughly the next 10 years. Hateley and McCoist were my childhood heroes (I actually cried when McCoist broke his leg against Portugal in 1992) and my weekly subscription to Rangers news arrived every Thursday at school whilst I was down in London. I remember beating Leeds in the 1992 Battle of Britain like it was yesterday, and that was before I had any real interest in rugby. I begged my Mum to let me go to Ibrox for a few home games and, legend that she was, she duly obliged (and there was actually nothing she'd rather have done less). Watching Brian Laudrup torment defences with his incredible skill and balance will always, for me, top all this Messi and Ronaldo nonsense were are supposed to worship these days. I had zero religious motivation for supporting Rangers and that remains the case. My second team, Everton, where I've been a former season ticket holder, was solely down to the Rangers contingent who moved to/from there (Steven, McCall, Durrant, Smith, Knox, Ferguson, Weir, Cleland, Gough, Gascoigne, Arteta, Jelavic etc.).

So, whilst impossible to condone the sectarian nonsense, I would find it impossible not to support them now.

Bit of a clear out at the Warriors:

Ryan Grant off to Worcester

Langilangi back to the states (family reasons being cited)

Firth off to somewhere in France (clearly not a top end club!)

All kind of predicted, so no great surprises and should hopefully free up a few quid for re-signing some others in the squad.

You would hope that a move might re-vitalise Ryan Grant a little bit, he certainly mentions that in his goodbye statement. He is only 31 and could certainly play on for a good few more years if he can re-discover some form. Easier said than done unfortunately, but still it was a move to Glasgow that turned him into a good player in the first place.

I'm surprised they're happy to lose Grant during the 6N period - it can probably be concluded then that he was viewed as bottom of the pecking order for the looseheads!

We could concievably see Shrek and Allan involved with Scotland at some point so who does that leave Glasgow with covering loosehead? Djustice and....?

That is a little surprising but I guess they thought the sooner he was off the payroll the better plus it gives him the chance to have a run at a contract for next season if he helps them stay up.

I guess we kind of need to see what DSD can do, he has been here for a season now and hardly played even though he seemed highly rated. Hopefully we will get one of Allan or Reid back and if not, will be picking up someone from the club game to sit on the bench.

To be fair with Dickinson and Sutherland injured and Dell with Scotland I'm not even sure Edinburgh have a reserve loosehead left!

Fortunately, I don't imagine he cost very much money!

Toonie has made it a bit of his thing to take a punt on a player here and there. You win some, you lose some. At least this one was all over and done with quite quickly. Firth is really the one we should be asking questions about as he has never even remotely looked like being fit enough to play and it has taken a full season to get rid of him. Langi at least looked like he had the tools and I can see what attracted them. Unfortunately, it does not look as if he had the mind-set to go with it.

It's rare that I get to say "I told you so", so just let me get on with basking in it for a short while.

Worth adding that Toonie gets more right than wrong, which certainly hasn't been the case with Edinburgh!

Certainly won't be the last on their way out. Worcester will be chuffed at getting Grant as I think they've lost their starting loose head to Gloucester for next season.

Wonder if this paves the way for Rennie to bring some absolute animal over from New Zealand. Also I see that the Chiefs have a Scottish scrumhalf listed in their team. Can't be getting too much game time behind Kerr-Barlow.

I wonder if Rennie has any influence over who is staying or going at the moment?

You'd think he'd have a few players he'd like to bring with him to Glasgow, but will there be room? Will he be making room?

You can bet your life he will be having an influence.

That was mentioned during the announcement as one of the reasons for the long lead in so he could have a say in recruitment. It makes a lot of sense, as so often new coaches arrive at clubs and inherit squads that can't play the way they want them to play. You would hope at Glasgow that won't be so much of an issue, as his teams in NZ very much play in a similar style.

He also mentioned that he did have a few players in mind who might like to come over with him.

On the risky signings both teams have tried, the SRU have not been too horrible (looking at opportunity cost).

Hits
Matawalu, Nakarawa, Nel, Bresler, Johnson, Burleigh, Puafisi, CDP, Strauss, B Toolis, Allen, Favaro

Unclear/Moderate Success
Coman (not a bad player, got overplayed which is a coach issue), De Klerk (would have been a hit until he asked the number of the wrong girl), Mata, Jerry, Djustice, Fowles, A Toolis, Petersen, Uanivi, Beard, Junior, Sarto, Brian

Failures/Probable Failures  
TwoLangi, A Strauss, Firth, Big T, Manu, Flynn, Helu, Scholes, Isles

The failures on the list tend to be expensive. Manu, Big T, Scholes and Flynn look like the big ones. Firth struggled to get into the Chiefs set-up so wonder if Rennie kicked him out quick. That list tends to show we scout well in the Currie Cup and the 7s circuit. Rubbish at going to NZ.

You've missed some of Edinburgh's finest:
Izak Van Der Westhuizen
Wicus Blaauw
Ben Atiga (that Strauss/Atiga midfield was something to behold...)
That Tongan fullback they signed last year who never played
Lots of average 10s from overseas club rugby who only lasted a couple of months apiece

On the failures I wouldn't say Big T was that bad - yes, he didn't live up to the hype but there was too much hype. Did we get his contract bought out?
Manu has looked like a hit whenever he's managed to be fit, he's just really struggled to come back from injuries.
As for Isles he was never going to make it - that's a guy who makes Lee Jones (pre-Glasgow) look massive!

Guys like Flynn may yet come good - his playing days are few and I'd hope he's providing good experience and mentoring behind the scenes. He also seems to have done ok whenever he has got on the pitch.

I was mainly trying to limit the list for after the Townsend take over (2012 onwards).

I forgot about the Tongan full back. It seems strange about the 10's who seem to be doing well in NZ and do rubbish in Edinburgh. Big T was a huge opportunity cost and that was the reason I put him in the failure bin.

Hilterbrand or whatever the hooker was called was a failure but Andress was a moderate success. Berghan is in the same boat at the moment as unclear and Tovey is a moderate success. Allan Dell was a hit.

I need help to make a full list. I am not George Carlin.

The official attendance was listed as 5.2k, which i think is slightly short of capacity. What's clear though is the SRU/Edinburgh could better utilise the stadium. They have enough seats etc, but a lot of people opted not to use the seats and were standing along the pitch (which was the side the tv gantry was on).

If this is going to be the case going forward then they could probably make more tickets available based on the assumption people will choose to stand rather than sit, however the caveat to this is that it was a fairly mild & dry evening. If it's pouring down with rain the number standing may decrease and the covered seats will be more popular.

However despite a number of seats going unused it certainly felt pretty full and I would imagine it likely was near capacity, but you cannot see the people standing pitchside due to the position of the cameras.

Correct. For example, we already know that Brian Alainu'uese is there because Rennie strongly recommended that he be signed.

He had played 2 or 3 times for the Chiefs but was wasted there and a bit annoyed about lack of game time.
