    Uefa Cup Final - Rangers Vs Zenit St Petersburg

    I know it's not an important trophy Sorry couldnt resist.

    Anyways, who do you think will win?

    Personally, I havent been following the Uefa Cup due to Man Utd being in the Champions League so not sure how good either team is. I know Rangers beat Fiorentina in the Semi's on penalties but have no idea who Zenit played throughout the tournament.

    Obviously with Rangers being a British team I'd like them to win (Even though of the Scottish teams I actually support Celtic).

    The way I see it, Roman Abramovich = Russian ... Zenit = Russian.

    Zenit & Chelsea = Lose ... Roman Abramovich = Cry



    Your views & opinions?



    Kickoff is at 19:45.

    If only more people took that view.

    I don't support any teams but it would be good as a Glaswegian, a Scot and a Brit if Rangers won.

    Although, strangely I had a dream last night that they lost 8-0

    Only Manchester City are capable of that


    I dont understand why people who are English/Scottish say they will support the foreign team in a final or general game.

    When Man Utd & Celtic were in the group phase of the Champions League the other season, I wanted Man Utd to beat Celtic (obviously) but I wanted Celtic to come second and progress instead of the foreign teams.

    Yes obviously there's little digs and stuff that Scottish teams play slow boring football but thats just general banter ... if you support a foreign team over a BRITISH team then your sad, pathetic and probably jealous ur team isnt in the final etc.

    So good luck to Rangers, maybe now you can finally have a European Cup like Celtic have had for 40 years ... albeit a second rate European Cup

    Rangers are big underdogs ... although with the amount of support down there for them , it could help them.

    Zenit have been kicking ass all the way qualifying, so 'should' win.

    but as said, hope for a Rangers win....for the good of scottish football..

    In a way I hope they with, but because I enjoy watching the news, I would rather they loose and not have to see reference to Rangers winning every 2 minutes..
    same with all sports, when a British team win anything the news treat it like a cure for cancer has been invented of aliens have landed and ignore proper news..

    Prediction.. I recon rangers loose 2-1.

    How about England 2 - 0 Scotland -- Euro 96


    Anyhow, as harsh as this sounds .. but you wouldn't know what it means to know your country has won the World Cup, we like the fact we've won it and that we beat the Germans to win it. When Andy Murray wins Wimbledon I'm waiting for the Scots to say how Tim Henman never won it (Englishman).

    But thats the rivalry between the two countries ... but doesnt mean "SOME" of us dont want a Scottish team to beat a Russian team. I have friends in Scotland and live very close myself so I'd prefer a Scottish team to win.

    pretty similar to celtic fans ramming 1967 down your throat
    i really cant bare them to win as its just more bragging rights

    this was prob how most gers fans felt in 2002
    What is cross posting? Is it when you get angry and post it on a forum?
