So the Ref that was in charge of the Ross County v Celtic game is one of the officials for the Old Firm Semi-Final! Do not think this bodes well for us Bears as there is a possibility that any 50-50 challenge and the decision could be now swayed in that mobs decision!

Only thing I'm not sure about is what Don Robertson's job is on Sunday? Don't know if he is going to be one of the Linesmen or if he is the 4th official in the Stand?

Anyways I just found this out through reading the paper on Friday but what's your thoughts Bears? There's probably going to be a tight offside call at some point and if its Mr Robertson is to make the call and gets it massively wrong it'll be carnage!

I do not think the SFA should be putting this man in such a position, but like I said, I do not know his job come Sunday. Bad enough that Collum is the Referee in the first place!

1.) 22 Apr 2017 10:51:37
He's one of the goal line refs I believe.

2.) 22 Apr 2017 10:57:03
the SFA are clearly scared of celtic and are a woeful organisation how can it be that they can't deal wi browns appeal til next week but could instantly hand schalk a 2 match ban for his dive its an absolute laughing stock of a set up

3.) 22 Apr 2017 11:38:45
If we're the best on the day we will win enough of the conspiracy theories we sound like that lot

4.) 22 Apr 2017 12:28:33
It's just the Celtic way, trying to put undue pressure on the refs, in order to get any advantage they can. They are just getting their excuses in early in case their world beating team doesn't win.

5.) 22 Apr 2017 13:09:12
Colshygers Aberdeen, celtic, hibs and rangers were all told in advance of last weekends games that any issues / appeals would not be heard until the 27th due to Monday being a bank holiday . Shalke had no option but to accept the 2 game ban as he could have got more if he appealled.

6.) 22 Apr 2017 14:52:37
Pathetic. You can only do your job on a Monday. Country backwards. But the weaker player getting a game 😂



08 Apr 2017 14:15:37
I have a huge concern about Transfers next season, and I'm not talking about players coming in! We know Caixinha will have a limited budget and think that any players we sell, their Fee will go straight into Caixinha's Transfer Funds.

I think that out of the players we want to sell or not, we may get bids for Tavs Waghorn and McKay. how much I don't know, but I think that Clubs could be interested.

Then there are players like Kiernan, Halliday, O'halloran, Forrester, Dodoo and Holt, who I think we should keep as the lad can play, but has looked nothing like the player he once was, but give him another season under Pedro.

Anyway, who is going to bid for these guys? Will they take a cut in wages? I do not want to see us paying off players to rip up their contract! Think it would make more sense to loan these players out and pay a small percentage of wages. I don't know if this would make sense financially but please no more players holding us to ransom on top of ex-managers!

What's the best thing to do Bears? Thoughts.

1.) 08 Apr 2017 17:01:10
Andy1872 the players you would keep are the players i would get shot of if we are to improve for next season.

2.) 08 Apr 2017 20:23:12
Total clear out a few players to keep maybe but the manager will have his say so it will be next season when we can judge so chill out these so called supporters do my nut in keep believing we still have the semi to look forward too and another against them if we get one of them i will be happy

3.) 09 Apr 2017 20:52:50
Ronnie it was only Holt i said about keeping fot at least 1 more season.



31 Mar 2017 16:24:23
I've got a feeling that Caixhina has told the players that from now till end of season they will be coming in on Wednesdays. I think he will have spoke to the team and explained that by doing this at this time is a brilliant statement of intent AND with the Players all of them up for it, anytime they're asked all will be saying that its the right thing to do.

I think Caixhina has done a brilliant bit of work here and I'm hoping that the main reason for it is because he totally gets the importance of getting into the Cup Final and denying Celtic the Treble!

I'm sure that the session on Wednesday will be light physically BUT the fact that he is getting the players together to go over systems, set-pieces or whatever I just think it is a master stroke even in PR! As what I've read the media have really taken to him too, with his interviews going well.

But again I'm sure he will have told players that the Club and squad must show that we are doing everything we can to give us even that extra 1% going into remainder of season. I expect that the squads days off will return to normal after a certain amount of time but if Caixhina thinks he needs to he Wilkinson revert back to 1 day off.

And if any players are stroppy about it then all they're saying is they do not want to be at the Club, will not be in the squad and makes his job slightly easier as he knows he'll need to trim wage bill to invest Ibrox players he does want to bring in.

1.) 31 Mar 2017 17:08:54
Heard him say they would play a game on a Wednesday probably against reserves which is always a good thing keeps them sharp and gives younger boys a chance to prove themselves win win in my opinion.

2.) 31 Mar 2017 21:58:27
I'm happy we took him on. Alex McLeish, Warbs and Ally were boring. Caixhina is bringing the passion and pride back. I'm 100% behind him. I'm putting £10 on at 5-1 tomorrow.

3.) 31 Mar 2017 22:50:58
Its all one bringing passion and pride back on a training pitch, like any manager he will be judged on what happens on matchday.

4.) 01 Apr 2017 08:07:42
His match day debut was pretty impressive.



31 Mar 2017 16:00:30
Read that Caixhina was looking at a 25 year old South American playing in the Bundisliga.

1.) 31 Mar 2017 16:42:52
Sorry lads he's not South American he's Swiss! Currently plays for Hoffinhiem I think?

2.) 31 Mar 2017 19:10:02
Are you talking about Steven Zuber? He's rated at 8m so doubt it would be

3.) 31 Mar 2017 21:41:48
Could be Fabian Schar. 25year old centre back for hoffenheim. Valued about 2 million.
Total guess tho as have heard nothing

4.) 31 Mar 2017 21:53:37
Schar is valued at £9 million and juventus, arsenal and Liverpool have been linked in the past 2 year. No chance he's coming to ibrox

5.) 01 Apr 2017 13:15:33
Swiss lad playing in Bundisliga that's on the radar is Harris Seferovic 25 years, Striker.

6.) 01 Apr 2017 13:30:20
Obviously some supporters reckon we'll spend £9 million on the one player judging by the two disagreements lol. Be lucky if we spend that on 4 players never mind the one.



26 Mar 2017 14:08:06
Bears. After reading a few reports regarding King saying that investment will happen for Pedro I've the feeling that King and the board have been holding back money and I now believe that Pedro could receive a Transfer Budget in the region of 10 million!

One thing that does worry me is that if certain players refuse to leave due to a wage decrease then we must loan them out whilst trying to get as much of their wage paid for by the other club!

I do not want to see us just paying players off to get rid of them, but I really do not think that this will have a huge impact on how much Pedro gets as King is reported to have said that he will invest significantly and that our new manager will have more to spend than Warbs did if needed!

Really do think that a Transfer Kitty of 10 million could happen.

1.) 26 Mar 2017 14:57:12
What are you basing that figure on?

2.) 26 Mar 2017 15:59:56
Highly doubt it. Maybe a couple of million here and there then a couple of small fees on rough diamonds from Portugal, Greece and whatever other countries pedro has coached in. Might get a tidy fee for the likes of tavernier and kiernan since warburton rates them so much. As long as we get a decent quality of players who can handle the pressure then I'm happy and it's a good start

3.) 26 Mar 2017 16:37:52
The retail deal would have to be sorted for the budget to be anywhere near 10 million, sorry but I can't see it being anywhere near or even half that figure.

4.) 26 Mar 2017 21:14:20
4-5 million?

5.) 27 Mar 2017 00:10:34
So you think King has been saving up cash, and you think it's about £10m. I would replace the word think with hope.

6.) 27 Mar 2017 01:14:48
If it is 10 million then real chance challenging the title right players coming in etc, I personally think this league just needs about 12 million to win this league

7.) 27 Mar 2017 09:56:42
Rangers need £20m and a bit of good luck to have any chance of winning the SPL next season! Chances are we will need to replace a number of players including Tavernier, (who will be off to Nottingham Forrest), we need a centre back with some quality, we need to either sign Hyndman or replace him with a player of similar ability and we need two other quality players, one for holding midfield and a striker.

For the right quality they won't come cheap. If we are lucky we might recoup £5m from selling the aforementioned Tavernier, Kiernan, Halliday and a couple of others. If Crooks comes back and can do a job for us it will be a major plus as would a fit Rossiter but that is hope rather than expectation.

I just hope that Pedro can find some gems in Portugal, South America etc., that will improve us to a level that can challenge for the league.

8.) 27 Mar 2017 11:42:11
Dont know where some of these figures are getting pulled from lads. a couple of players in the 500k bracket and a few frees will be our whack and we'll just need to hope Pedro has a few gems up his sleeve.

9.) 27 Mar 2017 12:05:04
TOMUSA : Not sure we need a holding midfielder now if we are to be continuing with our improved pressing game.

10.) 27 Mar 2017 12:12:41
i doubt we will win the league next year but we should be closer and to the 10 million comment i say dream on Andy dream on.

we will never spend that much and even if we do i can see the dark side spending about 25 mill this year to compete in Europe, so we will still be behind them squad wise but i can't see them winning the league with the same amount of points as this year as we will be more direct and more clinical next year (or at least i hope)

i hope i'm wrong and Pedro gets a war-chest of 15 million but i doubt that very much

11.) 27 Mar 2017 13:01:10
James Stirling, without a decent transfer budget Pedro will struggle to compete with Celtic and that will not be his fault. While I don't see Celtic spending the sort of money that you mention I do believe that they will strengthen their squad and to be honest they have some of the best talent in Scotland right now. I watched their young full back in action for Scotland last night and he was excellent and they have a number of very good players. They could lose one or two in transfers down south but would secure big fees for them. Right now, with the exception of Hyndman, a loan player, we have no one of the same quality.

I suspect that King is hoping that a deal can be struck with Sports direct so that we can generate additional income and also have a Share Issue that will bring in new funds but if we are hoping that he will personally put in more funds then I think we are wasting our time.

12.) 27 Mar 2017 13:09:27
DK did raise £7m+ recently from selling one of his companies in New York.
Don't want to speculate, however, he is sitting on a cash pile at the moment.

Anybody know when the Development Squad play their Games against the likes of Bayern Chelsea etc?
And do you think that Players like Dodoo Holt Burt etc are better staying at the Club to play in THESE Games rather than going on Loan to a Championship Club?

1.) 23 Aug 2017 09:09:49
1 I'll believe it when I see it
2 yes

2.) 23 Aug 2017 22:34:18
playing bayern chelsea etc and teams of that ilk won't happen on a regular basis. coming out the development league was a money saving exercise. as far as i know hee haw has been arranged



23 Aug 2017 00:11:57
Heard we just signed a young lad from Man. City called Aaron Nemad (spelling! ) On loan.
He's an attacking Winger who can play both Wings. Never heard of the lad before but he's supposed to be a real prospect. He's been fast tracked through City's Youth Programme. Its obviously been helped due to our new DOF, really hope that the lad does well and he may be included for the County game?
Does this mean that the Wallace deal ain't going to happen this Window or at all?
Anybody know anything about the Player?

1.) 23 Aug 2017 08:05:51
Wallace? He captain think you meant walker lol

I think gers sit tight on walker get him jan on pre. contract



08 Aug 2017 17:08:17
If Miller feels he needs to drop back to help out Midfield against Motherwell then we must alter our formation against the dammed!
IMO we need to play with Jack sitting in front, of tthe back 4 in a 4-1-4-1 or play with 5 across the middle.
Don't care what u want to call it but I think playing 4-4-2 is the wrong way to go!
Hate to say it but they are too strong in midfield IF we go 4-4-2 but if we match them, in numbers we can compete.
Team against the tic 4-1-4-1:
Tavs. Alves. Cardoso. Wallace.
Candieas. Dorrans. Windass. Walker.
When it comes to who we play up front it'll come down to who's in form come the time but no matter what we MUST change the formation or they will over run the midfield.
Would love to see Pena nxt to Dorrans in Midfield but need to wait and see?

1.) 08 Aug 2017 18:27:49
In reality it would be good to see Walker in the starting 11 so hopefully you know something we don't

2.) 08 Aug 2017 18:31:00
How deluded do you need to be to pick a team where there is a player that doesn't even play for you lol.

3.) 08 Aug 2017 18:51:32
Easy Tiger! i'm confident that Walker will be at Ibrox before the Window closes.
FFS! Deluded?

4.) 08 Aug 2017 19:05:24
Don't hung up on formations they can be adapted as in kenny dropping in makes it a five in middle or tav pushing on and Wallace coming in one makes it 352! straight 442 is what we should play against most teams our quality should dictate the game, however against celtic maybe away at Pittodrie I'd change it and go 451 it's a simple switch drop herrera for rossiter and leave Kenny up top! It's in kenny game now to play a free role which helped at times last season but he will have to be more disciplined this year to get best out of our system

5.) 08 Aug 2017 23:20:01
I never seen such hysteria over the signing of an average spfl player. It shows where you are.

6.) 09 Aug 2017 00:20:48
I sort of agree to a certain extent in what you're saying ray, but know what, that's where we are just now. Gone are the days of signing quality, let alone top quality.
Scottish football is being left behind and we are in no position to compete with England's third tier let alone the big boys down there. When a club like Brighton with no history can blow our teams out of the water with their spending power, you know our league is sunk.
When players would rather sign for a team in England with no ambition, just to play in England, rather than join a team with tradition, history and a chance to play in Europe like Rangers or Celtic then I think the writing is on the wall.
Walker may in your opinion be average but he's tried and tested in this league so if he wants to play for us then I say, come on ahead, you'll be made feel very welcome.
You guys have the bragging rights just now but this league has been getting worse year on year and the odd foray into Europe is what we all hope for now. So don't be getting your hopes up for any major signing from your team either because I don't see any superstars banging down your or our doors to get a game.
Just my honest opinion btw, nothing I've said is meant as bait or to ruffle feathers.



07 Aug 2017 22:25:25
You can just tell that Dorrans is a Bear and loved watching him celebrate! After watching him I think it would be a brilliant idea to eventually make him Captain but the sooner the better.
Also think that Windass really wants to show the Support he is a Player! But as Pedro says he needs to take care of the defensive side of his game.



07 Aug 2017 19:49:03
Can someone please tell me WHY for some Transfers the Fee etc is known but for others its a disclosed Fee?
Thats Wags, AND Garner gone for disclosed Fee's. There's plenty of opinions on how much these guys went for but we know NOTHING!
I just wonder which Club wanted the deal to be private?
I do hope that overall we have at least broke even combining the latest Transfers. To me that's 4 Transfers and 2 Loans out Yeah?

1.) 07 Aug 2017 21:04:13
does it really matter how much they went for? main thing is there gone after all that's what most fans wanted anyway.

2.) 07 Aug 2017 22:24:21
Can be either rangers don't want other clubs knowing what money they have so we can't be pushed for more obey for player i. e. Walker or we have got rubbish money for them and don't want too show that either.

But maybe it's Ipswich that has said they don't want it known. But will we not find out when the accounts are published?

Fod would love to see Pedro given some more decent money to bring in some quality but in all honesty I did not think that he would have been given the amount that he has already spent!
Would love to see us win the Lge this Season but in truth I think we all would see finishing a good 2nd and a Cup as progress. It pains me to say it as at one point I thought we had a better shot at the Title to how I feel now although I still think Caxinha is the man for the job and the results WILL come. The Team needs games!
If we do not have decent funds at the moment then bringing in loans is acceptable to me rather than bringing in low cost low quality Players and having them on 2/ 3yr Contracts.
Even still, I think this Team will get it together with what we have. Getting a quality Winger and I hate saying it but a strong Left Back are top of my list, BUT as I said over time with the Support and installing Confidence in this Team imo will have a huge impact.

I really hope that Pena smashes a couple of goals in on his first start OR at least shows us that he has bags of ability. I think Pena and Dorrans in the middle of the Midfield with Candieas on the right and poss Windass or hopefully Walker on the left. I know we have the young Lad from City arriving and apparently he can play both Wings so here's hoping he comes up and hits the ground running.
Imo its the Wings we should invest in! The jury is out on all Wingers at the Club!
Candieas can hopefully kick on and as for Dalcio he really needs to raise his game. Windass looks like he could be a really good Player on the Wing and also think he is capable of playing both Wings. But I would love it if we did bring in a Qaulity Left Winger, but if we do not have the funds then so be it and I would accept Pedro bringing in a Loan job until we do have the finances to bring someone in. Like I said tho Candieas may up his game to the level we want and Windass is a Player who I feel wants to show the support he CAN play and I think he will become a top Player he too just needs time. I definitely think that this Team will become stronger the more they Play as its not just the Wings that's needing improved. But imo this Squad is 100% good enough to Challange

Yeah 460k sounds right but 2 YEARS to pay 240k that 10k a month! Thought Sunderland would've been able to pay the remainder quicker than that.

Agree with Dodoo going on loan think I would rather a loan than prob taking a Fee less than we paid.
Only other from 1st Team would be Holt on loan as I don't think he will get many chances.
Said before that after Walker any business will be Loans coming in.

Imo we should Loan Dodoo out! Seems to be too far down pecking order.
Always liked Joe and if he ain't going to get a game then giving the lad the opportunity to get game time would be best for all as he could come back a better Player, its either this or a Transfer! And I don't want to see us losing him for something like 50k as I think he cost us 200/ 250k? So send him out for 6 months and see how he does!
Always thought there was a possibility that he would have been part of a deal for Walker? Failing that I would like to see him go to a Dundee/ Accies before going to a Championship Side!
No matter tho the lad needs games!

Ped MAY have Abella lined up but its down to getting a work permit and I don't know if that would be straight forward. I do think Hodson is an adequate replacement but he does not offer an attacking threat.
How much do we think Warbs would offer for Tavs that would turn our eye? For me a bid of around 1.5m would prob do it and I think that's about how much Abella would cost (I think)
