21st Century Blue PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

21st Century Blue free pdf There are a lot of books about Rangers fans- this one is for them. It looks at the last three decades on and off the field, with a humorous eye cast over the strange world of Scottish football. The book deals with a whole host of subjects concerning Rangers, including what it was like to grow up during the Souness Revolution, the club's traditions, the growth of fan culture and the changing relationship between footballers and fans, and the role of the Scottish media in the life of the club. The author has been media spokesman for the largest independent Rangers supporters' club for five years and has accumulated a wealth of stories and anecdotes which are revealed in this irreverent, funny and often thought-provoking volume. Many of the subjects have never been commented on by a dyed-in-the wool supporter. Over the years much has been written about Rangers and their fans, but very little of it for fans and by them. The supporters have been poked, prodded, jostled and jeered. They've been encouraged to pay up and shut up. But there's more to the life of a Rangers supporter than that and that is what this book is for. It is the story of a young man and his love for his club. It tells of some of the extraordinary situations he has found himself in over the last decade following the 'Gers and it will, hopefully, give the reader a better idea of what it is to be a Teddy Bear these days. Although being a Rangers fan can be difficult, it can also be fantastic. The spirit of the support, the humour, the history...it's special. And it all comes across in this book: by a fan, for the fans.

About David Edgar

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.
