Product description

About the Author

David Edgar is the spokesperson of the Rangers Supporters Trust, the largest independent Rangers supporters group. He has supported Rangers for 30 years and has been the support's representative in the media for the last six. He decided to write the book because the outside world's perception of Rangers fans didn't fit with his experience of them. There is a lot of humour, passion and enjoyment involved in following the club, and he wanted that to be recorded.

I've been planning to read this book for ages but hung on for the kindle version. I'm certainly glad I finally got round to it. Any Rangers fan would find this book a pleasure, it's funny, honest and interesting. The writing style makes it an easy read and there are plenty laughs and memories along the way. I'll be recommending it to all the bears I know.

If you like Rangers, or even if you don't like football but like wit, this is a good choice for you.

A book written by a true supporter of Rangers FC. He doesn't like Celtic FC, their supporters, the Scottish media, nor the rest of Scottish football. Why should he, they have made it blindingly obvious they don't like us.
They have cast us out, and banished us to the ranks of Scotland's "diddy teams", but we remain the biggest club in Scottish football and are winning games for fun. In fact, the other teams who showed their hatred for us, can only watch as we regain our strength, and one day we will return to our position as Scotland's number one, and will severely punish them for how badly they have treated us.
Look out Scotland, the Rangers are coming, and Scotland may not be big enough.

I'm not a supporter of either Old Firm team but am an avid reader of all things football-related. Both sides of the Old Firm have always intrigued me due to the mass support they generate - a support that transcends geography.

This book explores the blue side of the two and offers a great insight into what it's like to be a Rangers supporter in the modern age. The author is clearly very knowledgable and has had access to the club that ordinary fans won't have enjoyed, which perhaps makes his prose all the more authentic.

As a complete neutral, I still found this a witty, informative and an entertaining read.

The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because I worry what it will do to David's ego. Great read and along with follow we will, will aid some fans understanding of why things went so catastrophically wrong in the past decade.

Well done David. Really enjoyable read over the last day. Also great to have a voice like you as a bear. Keep those pods coming- at least until we win 55! Then a heart and hand anthology on the journey to finish off!

Just finished this book and cant recommend it highly enough, it evoked so many memories from the 80s and 90s that you found yourself chuckling, remembering where you had been and waiting for the next flash of nostalgia. The author has a natural writing ability which makes it extremely readable, and I finished it in one night. Highly recommend to any Rangers Fan but also anyone with a love of football, scottish football in particular who grew up in this era.
