To the Kingdom of Fife

I’m not even sure where to start with last weeks cup performance as for the fourth time this season we have been eliminated at an early stage. It was said Ally used to take the cup teams when Walter was manager and if that was true, his record was outstanding, whereas now it’s seems to be something of an Achilles heel!
.
It was especially hard to take after yet another battering in the press. To be honest though, nothing has changed; we are still open season for the likes of the BBC and the Daily Record, when the truth is no one knows what is happening. Our former chairman, Alistair Johnston, piping up with all sort of masked allegations isn’t helping either – with friends like these, who needs enemies….!
It’s really is just a case of let’s wait and see what happens. Craig Whyte, as is his style, has come out fighting and spoken as forthright as he can without giving too much away to the likes of the Rangers Supporters Trust, again giving me hope that he is in this for the good of the club.
.
Anyway, enough of the negativity as here in Hong Kong we’ve got plenty to look forward to, starting this Saturday night as the Rangers travel to East End Park to face Dunfermline in the “early” game. The kick-off is 8pm local time and it will be shown live in Amici via Goal TV1.
.
It’s also just over a week until our guests of honour, The Goalie & big Amo arrive in Hong Kong. I got an interesting text message from Amoruso last week telling me he was looking forward to enjoying the city and the sunshine…….any volunteers to pass on the bad news…??!!
For the race-day in Shatin I think we are up to 31 places from the maximum 40 we can fit in, so if anyone is still thinking about coming along, please get in touch ASAP. For those that have already indicated they are coming along, I will send out a further email early next week with all the details.
I’ll also be sending out details of our bank account for those that still need to pay their annual fees for the year – with the players due to arrive very shortly, we have a number of invoices to settle, such as their hotel, so all of this will be useful !
.
For the Q&A, please see our events page for the poster for the evening, and please do what you can to spread the word to ensure the evening is a success.
.
Finally, and if that was not enough, I’m in the process of arranging a friendly / testimonial football match in honour of our current secretary Colin Reid. Colin is due to depart Hong Kong permanently for New York in approximately 2 weeks time. For this i’m in the process of arranging a team to play at the HKFC, with the most likely date to be a week today, so on Friday 17th Feb (or maybe Tuesday 21st). If anyone would be interested in playing for the HKRSC, then please let me know.
I’ll pass on more details when I have them.
