Pressestimmen

An insightful and wonderfully written account ... Richard Wilson, more than anyone in recent years, has told us why Celtic and Rangers matter and why their adherents have little of which to be ashamed and much of which to be proud. I salute him * Observer * A measured and thought-provoking treatise on the legendary rivalry between Scotland's two most popular football clubs * Scotland on Sunday * It is an intensity that has frequently scarred Old Firm collisions with the violent and the reprehensible. But the Rangers-Celtic rivalry is so deep in the bones of so many Scots that - amid a football culture transformed beyond recognition by the wholesale importation of foreign players - it effortlessly remains a focus of mass emotion. -- Hugh McIlvanney There were times when we might as well have played the first 20 minutes without a ball. The match would commence and the fans would hardly notice. -- Sir Alex Ferguson, former Rangers player I'd heard a lot about the Old Firm game over the years and of the rivalry that exists between the Celtic and Rangers supporters, but it's only when you live in the city and see it up close that the true extent of the bigotry and hatred hits home. The fans were frothing at the mouth and at each other's throats right through the warm-up. When we marched out to kick off, it REALLY got intense. -- Tony Cascarino, former Celtic player

Kurzbeschreibung

Since 1888, Rangers and Celtic football clubs have been locked into an intense and frequently explosive rivalry: Rangers the product of West Scotland's Protestant establishment, Celtic the team founded to raise money for the Catholic underclass of Glasgow. On 2 January 2010 the two teams met in the Old Firm's New Year Derby, a fixture that had been banned for ten years because of the trouble it brought with it. Richard Wilson puts that game at the centre of a book which delves into the history and widens out to the cultural resonance of the fixture within Scotland. It is a potent mix of close-up observation and big-picture thinking, with insight, understanding and depth. Fully updated to cover the latest Old Firm stories, including Rangers' dramatic collapse into administration.

Received the book yesterday and went through it in 1 night. Good to read, interesting insight stories and with some new informations. What bothers me was the monologe style at the beginning of each chapter or sub-chapter, in which the author just recites the potential train of thoughts of either players or refs. That is mere speculations and way too long and useless and seems to be a gap-filler.

Apart from that I would recommend that book to everyone that is intersted or involved in "Glasweegien Fitba".

5.0 von 5 Sternen the modern still haunted by the past 24. November 2012
Von Brian Maitland - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
There has been plenty written about the Old Firm (rival Scottish soccer clubs Celtic and Rangers) so I was dreading this was going to be yet another tired old Catholic vs. Protestant screed. It totally is not. First of all, it's as up to date as could be even covering Rangers on the verge of their eventual demotion to Scottish Division III.

Mostly the book focuses in on recent history between the clubs and each chapters tries to look at it through the lens of a either a coach, referee, player, police officers, officials, etc. The author does not shy away from the violence and takes a far better approach but looking at it from the viewpoint of medical staff having to deal with Old Firm violence. He also goes into the economics of it all as well as getting right into the ins and outs of each team's supporters not only in Scotland but in Ireland and further abroad.

It's must reading for anyone trying to understand the love and hatred that fuels arguably the strangest, yet most passionate, rivalry in European sports.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Celtic V Rangers 23. September 2016
Von Patrick O'Malley - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This book explains the divide of these two clubs, and the troubles of a city torn. After this book you feel the Pride of Celtic and little left to be desired for Rangers. After reading this book, you want to run to the highest building and tell "Mon the Hoops"

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent, thoughtful and original 14. Februar 2012
Von Gordon Wilson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The two Glasgow soccer teams, Rangers and Celtic must be two of the most written about teams in world soccer however this book brings a new perspective to the subject. Written from many different viewpoints, including players, referees and even emergency responders, this book really brings home the size, importance and frankly hatred of the teams. Of particular nearest to me was the view of people you wouldn't normally consider. The chapter on the thought processes of a referee of an old firm encounter I found absolutely fascinating. It never occurred to me that he might just not want to mess it up! This book also achieves something many of these books find difficult and that is to come across as neutral. All in all I thoroughly recommend reading this book as it provides excellent insight in to a complicated subject while also giving a real sense of the excitement generated by these teams.
