Ulster / Glasgow Rangers link

Postby inmemoryof » Fri Jun 26, 2009 1:49 pm

I was going through a pile of my brothers Cov City badges some time ago - he died last year - respect Bro :( - and noticed there were quite a few Cov badges with Ulster and Glasgow Rangers incorporated.

Why is that?

(PS not many Cov City shirts over here in the middle east!)

Thanks

I'd have thought Celtic would be a more likely club for any who moved to Coventry from Scotland, as the vast majority (like my good old dad) were Catholic, very few prots, so that's a mystery

there was a mass influx into coventry after the war from all over the uk with the promise of well paid work for all,
a lot of the shipyards and pits north of the border were closing so it was logical that many would move south in search of work

there was a huge irish catholic community in cov which used to materialise in the celtic / rangers chants at the football on a saturday although i used to prefer the tiswas / swapshop rivalry

there was also a bit of shit going on in northern ireland so as usual the badge makers hedged their bets and made badges to show your support whichever side of the fence you sat, the loyalist alliegances grew after the bombings in coventry and brum

and i cant believe there arent many cov shirts out in the middle east i would have thought the MoD would make them compulsory the bad guys would die laughing

but im sure that will change soon as we have some real patriotic heroes who love a fight who go to the football now who in a couple of years will be old enough to join up :roll:

There are a fair few CCFC fans in Eire, must have something to do with the number of Irish players who have played for us over the years?
Whoever is first in the field and awaits the coming of the enemy, will be fresh for the fight; whoever is second in the field and has to hasten to battle will arrive exhausted.

Mmm, I think this is the logical answer. My old Bro was an 'England Forever' bloke, so I guess this was an ideal opportunity to display his deep love and loyalty to Cov City and our protestant history.

Anyway - I will continue to wear them with pride - for my Bro and for my home.

...as for the knobs who still insist on scrapping on the terraces - tell them to get some real bolx and get out here...
