I didnt expect to read such a brutally honest account of the events that transpired at Rangers over the last few years .

That the authors have taken this on in such a way is refreshing and at the same time bringing a bit of sanity to what has been the greatest sporting mismanagement not just by those in charge at Ibrox , From SDM to the board ar Rangers , to LLoyds , Donald Muir , to CW and Duff and Phelps , but also the bigger picture of how bigoted and small minded our little country actually is.

Thee are many in the msm(main stream media) and also at the power bases of the SFA and SPL who will find this totally embarrassing and deeply uncomfortable .

This is a must read for all football fans .

This book offers Rangers fans, and football fans in general, a proper insight to the story behind the events at Rangers Football Club in the past year or so. The fact that the book was written by Rangers fans was a key factor in me purchasing it.

Thoroughly enjoyed reading it, and this is taking nothing away from the other authors and those who helped make this book possible, but I found Iain Duff's chapter to be particularly pleasing, so much so I shed a tear towards the end!

Laid out in black and white the trials, judgemental attitudes and sheer hypocrisy heaped upon Rangers in the past year and a half. As well as looking at the tenure of Craig Whyte the authors cover events that led up his taking over, the administration, attempted take overs and Charles Green. The fans themselves are highlighted also, for their actions in helping to save the club they love and also asks, what more can they do? Highly rate this if you love Rangers, and if you don't then at least read it first before bashing it. You may learn a worrying thing or two that should make you fear for your own club in the future.

This is a factual account written with calm insight on what Rangers fans had to endure when their club was sold to a charlatan. It is an illuminating account of how despite the fact Rangers fans had no control or influence over the situation they had to sit idly by while others beyond their control almost decimated their club. It gives concise detail of the spite shown by the governing body in Scotland. Not to mention the vitriol aimed at them for daring to stand by the club they and in most cases several family generations had long supported.

The book well illustrates how the long journey back was praised worlwide by neutral onlookers who found the story nothing more than a heartwarming demonstration of the loyalty football fans have for their club. The spite from governing bodies and fans from other clubs shows the depth some are prepared to sink to to indulge their longheld venom. What was a devastating blow to Rangers fans was like manna from heaven for people who should really have a good look at themselves.

It is interesting how the book contrasts the treament meted out by the people in authority who should be helping member clubs to stay afloat with the sympathetic treatment given to Portsmouth FC by the English FA. The fact that some fans in order to "punish" Rangers were even prepared to see their own club fold tells you all you need to know.

I await with interest any response to the book by Alex Thomson ( a so called award winning journalist) and Speirs who both played shameful roles in the events which unfolded.

The events leading up to Rangers' administration, then liquidation must rank as one of the most mis-reported stories in the history, not only of sport, but of journalism.

Leaked documents, malicious half-truths and downright lies have been the norm since Craig Whyte 'duped' David Murray, then deliberately ran the business into the ground. Bloggers, broadcasters, so-called journalists and self-trained tax experts have been falling over one another to give their 'expert opinion' on the laws broken, the rules breached and the punishments which should be handed down - all before any investigation had even been started. Accusations of 'financial doping', tax evasion, winning trophies under false pretences etc came thick and fast. It was open season on Rangers, and all in the name of 'sporting integrity'.

This book goes some way to redress the balance and provide perspective on what the club were accused of, what they were eventually found NOT GUILTY of, and the devastating effect all of this has had on the club, the fans and on Scottish football as a whole.

The book consists of 13 well-written and well-argued chapters from contributors with business, accounting and journalism backgrounds. If you're a Rangers fan, the first few chapters will stir up all the anger and frustration of last summer. If you support a club other than Rangers, it's a salutary lesson on what can happen if your club is mis-managed from the top down. If you're an outside observer, it's an almost unbelievable record of bias, incompetence and downright hostility to Scotland's biggest and most successful club.

Not being a support prone to reaching for the victim blanket, criticism of the previous Ibrox regimes is unflinching. The authors have done a fantastic job.
The frenzy for ‘justice’ that was visited upon Rangers from the Scottish football community in the last 18 months has been a real eye-opener.
If only the seekers of vengeance had waited on a verdict…..

Make no mistake here. This book re-ignites a lot of bad memories. The malicious lies from bloggers, The damaging actions from our games governing body towards one of its oldest member clubs. The joy in our club almost disappearing from journalists. Also how as a club we were fed upon like a pack of frenzied flea bitten dogs by the other clubs in the league.

It also reminds us, how as a support we rallied to our club in its hour of need. How we challenged the corruption from the Sfa/Spl cabal through the RFFF. The march to Hampden. How our fans backed the club with fantastic support as we embark on our journey back to the top.

A informative, well written TRUTHFUL account of how financial mismanagement and corruption almost brought a scottish institution to extinction. A must read for every Rangers fan and Fans of other club NOT tarred by the lies written about Rangers Fc.

Af last, a book that, after a period of calm contemplation, can place on record the painful events at Rangers during 2012 and the shameful handling of the crisis by the Scottish football authorities who, rather than come to the aid of a member club, seemed to weigh in behind the agenda-driven bloggers and journalists who saw the opportunity to destroy a footballing institution because of their own preconceptions about that club and it's followers. Very little of what you read in this book is to be found in print elsewhere so it's to their great credit that the creators of Follow We Will have taken the time and effort to set the record straight and any neutral readers will be appalled at the treatment of Rangers to be found within; and hopefully delighted at the way the supporters rallied to the cause and refused to allow their club to die. The facts are all here, checked and referenced and by golly there'll be a few journalists and members of Scottish football's authorities reading this with beamers that could light up the Clyde.

It's great to have a well written and factual account of this peiod for the next generation.
While being able to relive the events in print only served to reinforce how inept at best, vengeful at worst Scottish footballs treatment of a great institution actually was.
Follow we will indeed.
A must read for any football fan.
