With the arrival of Declan who I think will push Wallace and Ped will give him his chance, (prob Cup Game)
The lad WILL give it 100% to try and stake his claim. Thinking tho if he's successful then the Captaincy is up for grabs and imo its down to Alves. Dorrans or Jack. Personally I would like to see Dorrans get it. After seeing him score against Motherwell I thought he would make a great Captain AND he would love it!
I know European Managers don't put as much enfisise on the Captaincy as British Managers do but Wallace is not the best choice for the role. We need our Squad to be as strong as possible and having someone like Dorrans as Captain can only benefit the Team.

1.) 04 Sep 2017 05:53:59
Andy I would give the captaincy to Alves and in a few years to Jack as for young Declan in the short term I would give him a go on the left wing as he said his attacking side is the best side of his game.

2.) 04 Sep 2017 12:38:50
Can't get you guys obsession with changing the captain! We have a captain, stuck with us through thick and thin, good player, when he is done we will change. We have more to worry about than changing captains I'm sure.

3.) 04 Sep 2017 15:39:42
We certainly do mate, the fact that no one on here cares because they don't won't to be seen as the fan who says anything bad about there team. Guess what folks no one said to craig whyte what you up to and look at us now.

4.) 04 Sep 2017 16:39:26
Alves for a year and then Jack for me.

5.) 04 Sep 2017 17:34:48
Wallace will always be remembered for his loyalty and I love the idea of him being captain but in reality I just feel he lacks something that makes a great captain

6.) 04 Sep 2017 18:13:44
Simple answer is to have a "club" captain ( wallace) and a team captain who is a leader on the pitch. Something that wallace lacks imo.

7.) 04 Sep 2017 22:13:51
Why du folk feel the need to put a label on it! There can be multiple leaders on and off the park! I'm sure if things aren't going well in games alves will still go aff his nut even tho he's not got the armband on

8.) 05 Sep 2017 09:51:30

lee wallace for me has to pick up his game as last season and this one soo far he doesn't look to have the quality or confidence to be a rangers player let alone a captain.
i would probs make jack captain just now as that would give him the confidence boost that i think he needs as he tbh isn't doing as well as i think he can for us he is doing well don't shoot me i just think he is capable of more.

9.) 05 Sep 2017 10:11:45
LEE WALLACE is our CAPTAIN get over it and support the man plus the team the manager and the club

There more to life and things going on at rangers than people shouting who should be captai

Changing captain ain't going to make rangers never lose again support wallace support pedro and the club and we all might get what we all want glasgow rangers winning games winning titles getting better quality players in and being the kings of european football again

10.) 05 Sep 2017 14:48:51
Pedro has said we need 4 or 5 captains out there providing leadership throughout the team. As long as Wallace makes the starting 11 he should remain one of them along with Kenny, Alves, Dorrans, Jack and Nico when playing.

11.) 05 Sep 2017 16:14:24
I know Pedro did say it but its one of the things I actually disagree on. can't have different players wanting different things on the pitch. The experienced players totally should be vocal and drive the team on but for me there is one captain and one captain only. Also for what its worth no chance I would include Niko in that group.



01 Sep 2017 23:18:29
Think it would be an good idea to get big Clint Hill back in the fold as if the sh#t hit the fan and anything were to happen to our CH's then having him would be a solid option. Wilson may step up and hopefully nxt to Alves or Cardoso be the Player he was tipped to be.
He must've even now have benefitted from being around Bruno, but it wouldn't hurt having Hill at the Club, wages shouldn't be a problem.

1.) 02 Sep 2017 07:17:52
Naw Andy Naw! We're going forwards now and no backwards Clint was great for us in a rubbish team but now we have a better team so he just wouldn't fit in. You have a nice day now 😳

2.) 03 Sep 2017 23:50:25
I understand what your saying but I was just talking about back up if we suffered too many injuries. I've always thought Wilson was a decent CH especially if his partner was a confident Player. But now that the Transfer Window has been and gone, if we did find ourselves in a situation like that then having Hill around could be useful. I understand what your saying though.

3.) 04 Sep 2017 09:23:09
clint hill was part of the worst rangers defence to have ever played

4.) 04 Sep 2017 10:03:01
Big man should have been kept on another season, just for the experience and the presence in the dressing room venue if his playing time was very limited

5.) 04 Sep 2017 10:08:06
Jan kirchoff is still a freebie as is bassong

6.) 04 Sep 2017 15:54:02
Jan kirchoff would be a decent signing. Still young enough and must have something about him to have played for bayern and scale. Wages would be too high I expect though.



25 Aug 2017 15:45:14
So from what I've read it looks like talks between us and Man. City are still on going!
It seems we will definitely bring at least one more Player on loan.
Our DOF is obviously the catalyst behind such deals, I just wonder if there is a chance to bring in a more experienced Player from City? I know its just a loan and some have issues with this but City prob do have some Players who could do a job and like I said I would rather use any finances we have paying all or the majority of a City Player than sign a Player for 3/ 4/ 500k and have him on the books for 2/ 3yrs. It could go either way, it is a gamble but it is still something that I look forward too. If any Bears out there know of any Players that City have on their books who is up for loan OR any Players who were on fringes of 1st Team but didn't make the cut please let us know.

1.) 25 Aug 2017 16:20:12
Not to worried if their a more experienced player. if any of their players that come to us and have the same impact Roberts had at Celtic I'll be happy

2.) 25 Aug 2017 16:20:44
Would piss ma self if it was Roberts

3.) 25 Aug 2017 16:40:04
There are clearly tiers of players that City are loaning out now from their academy. Players like Roberts, who they paid £12m to sign, are a million miles away from the lad we've just taken.

The lads we're looking at are probably at a similar stage of development as Oduwa and Zelalem were. If that is the case I'd rather save the fee/ wage personally.

4.) 25 Aug 2017 17:55:06
Mikel Arteta is a co-assistant coach for Man City too so extra bonus for a good player to come to us

5.) 25 Aug 2017 19:33:55
TheCampbell in my opinion we need to add a few Players to the Squad for certain Positions, and if we are to bring in Players on Loan then doing business with Man. City is one of the better options.
What else can we do! If City can offer us a Player of a better calibre than what we have in our ranks then so be it. If we can get a Patrick Roberts then our new DOF will be doing his job.
I feel its just too early for some of our younger Players and the only Player in the position that we need strengthened and one who I feel will have a bright future (Atayaki) is only 17.

6.) 25 Aug 2017 22:12:37
If never heard of Patrick Roberts before Celtic signed him. Trust in the staff. If he's at Man City he must be a good prospect

7.) 25 Aug 2017 22:56:39
Yea we could do with a few new players in selected areas of the team to add abit more strength depth+we don't know how the mexician guys are gunna cope especially in the winter months+they have showed nothing so far which is a big let down realy need these guys to get finger out and perform +we are better than we were undet the 🍞 breadman 🍞Although along way of being a good RANGERS team+i'll take us to win 🇬🇧2-0🇬🇧 on Sunday

8.) 26 Aug 2017 01:01:46
Also think that having the knowledge of our new DOF will have an huge impact on the decisions Ped will make in regards to Players City have available.
Think Pedro will use this information to bring in at least another 2 Players.
Apart from Dalcio the Loans were always going to come in at the tail end of the Window. I just didn't realise how much of an integral part the DOF would be in bringing Loan Players to the Club!

9.) 26 Aug 2017 09:52:40
who ever is in charge next season should look at bringing in two quality strikers and if we have to blow the majority of the budget on them then so be it this is the only way we will get near celtic.
Nacki Wells and Nouha Dicko would be really good signings for our club and with the money wolves and huddersfield are spending both could be available for transfer and at resonable prices.

10.) 26 Aug 2017 11:39:50
The fact is these loans are good prospects for their parent clubs, not for Glasgow Rangers. We haven't got luxury time to bring these players on during games any more. Every premier league game is a grind for us. We need players who match our circumstances. Experience is key here. It is most alarming if Caixinha does not realise this.

11.) 26 Aug 2017 14:01:46
Agree with bear we need players who are ready for the 1st team now especially loan players

12.) 26 Aug 2017 16:20:48
The guy from Man City we got is just one of there young talents but Patrick Roberts was bought from reading for 12million as he stood out for them like a sore thumb playing for them so he is a little different from just taking a young Man City kid from there academy.

13.) 27 Aug 2017 19:07:46
He was bought from Fulham

14.) 27 Aug 2017 21:59:44
Forget about patrick roberts.

15.) 28 Aug 2017 13:11:16
i would like rangers to invest in a proper lleft back.
and a big striker like moult or rooney

16.) 29 Aug 2017 15:31:01
Imagine Moult being mentioned in the same sentence as Rooney! Like Paul Gascoigne and Bamber Gascoigne.



22 Apr 2017 10:35:41
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.

06 Oct 2017 17:34:22
Alright Bears. Do you think we that we will offload some of the 6 Players who are in the final year of their contract to try and bring in some cash? I know that the money that could be brought in would not be millions but surely it would be better to move them on and get something in and also trim the wage bill.

1.) 06 Oct 2017 19:25:26
I don't think any of them will b offered a new contract andy as none of them have done enuf for me plus it frees up a lot of space in the squad for Pedro to bring in another 5 or 6 players

2.) 06 Oct 2017 19:47:06
Would you trust ped with anymore money, let's face it we could end up with another 5 or 6 pena's and herrera's. I wouldn't trust him with anymore cash. Hopefully from now to the january window I'm proved wrong but I very much doubt it.

3.) 06 Oct 2017 19:54:55
He will only try and bring in another 2 or 3 and try and hopefully give some of the younger lads a chance to push way into main squad.

4.) 06 Oct 2017 20:23:57
It will be more loan deals or pre contracts. that's if he is still manager by january, I still think he will be out the door by then. He has to get at least 5 wins on the trot or its game over.

5.) 06 Oct 2017 22:38:48
Could end up with another 5 or 6 candias or morelos though?! A positive spin on another negitive post. As bad as the Daily Record on here at times.

6.) 06 Oct 2017 23:58:13
So your saying its a gamble pappy, we can't afford another gamble. A realistic spin on another unrealistic, optimistic post 👍

7.) 07 Oct 2017 06:44:34
Every manager or team that buy new players is a gamble coldo not everyone gets it right all the time before you say yes I think Pedro will bring in more players and some may not work but that is the manner of football and as soon as rangers or Celtic are interested in a player the price gets inflated fact if Pedro doesn't last then the same will happen to the new manager its going to take a long time the only thing that worries me slightly is that most of the Mexicans who come to British football don't settle they settle better in Spain and Portugal. hopefully they do because a link to central and south america WL benefit us in the long run

8.) 07 Oct 2017 08:22:32
Getting a new manager in AGAIN would be a gamble. Every time a club spends money on a human asset its a gamble.

9.) 07 Oct 2017 08:32:41
Its an expensive gamble brian when we pay 5mil for for two mexicans that are worse than a man down. Not good enough.

10.) 07 Oct 2017 08:48:51
Its a bigger gamble when you take a manager from the relms of unknown who has no experience of our game. We need a manager who knows our game and what type of player will thrive in our game. With the exception of a few, most of his signings don't have the fight or ability, very evident by the fact we struggle in nearly every game. Players have had long enough to settle and gel.

11.) 07 Oct 2017 10:48:49
For a manager with no experience of our game he must have got lucky with Morelos, candeais, dorrans, jack, John and alves then

12.) 07 Oct 2017 10:53:32
Colin who is this manager that you want? There are no sottish managers around if so why didn't Celtic go for them after delia? Fact is we have to realise that we are not the rangers of the past ally did what he could and so did Warburton they got us back to where we are and it is now up to Pedro to take us further I don't see the point in getting someone like McLeish I just can't see him doing anything 10 million in this era is peanuts we will need 3 times that but it will come eventually we need to be recognised for being a club with a future and a club with a vision on youth and the ability to groom new players that is what will see us through these hard times but we will pull through it together c'mon the gers (are we not allowed to say we are the PEO. Anymore)?

13.) 07 Oct 2017 12:25:30
It doesn't matter if i trust him or not, its not up to me. but if he's still here come the summer then he's got to be trusted to bring more players in, like it or not.

14.) 07 Oct 2017 12:31:26
I would hope he's learned from those 2 coldo and maybe buy Brittish/ Scottish

15.) 07 Oct 2017 13:04:04
If he goes, then we have to go for mcinnes. His record at aberdeen speaks for itself. Aberdeen are organised and have fight about them. They are joint top on a fraction of our budget. Huey, with they players you mentioned we are still struggling in nearly every game. Although I agree they are the better bunch. This nonsense about settled squads, time to gel etc is just pathetic excuses. Nearly as bad as warbs "we will learn from this and go again next week", change the record. We have had only 3 convincing wins and they came against hamilton dundee and 1st divison dunfermline. The rest of the games we have struggled. Again I don't want to hear excuses like, jack shouldn't have got sent off, hearts parked the bus, partick put in hard tackles against us etc etc etc, yawn.

16.) 07 Oct 2017 16:50:12
Fact is just because someone says "fact" doesn't make it a fact



30 Sep 2017 00:13:14
Well Bears its one if two things regarding Miller, He is either the person who has been leaking information, which would really surprise me! OR he has said something to Caxinha and in my mind must have done it in front of other Players Coaches etc! as I think that Caxinha would accept a Player having an difference of opinion, as long as a Player does so in the right environment and NOT disrespect him undermine him in front of other Squad members! Again I do find it hard to believe that a Player like Miller would do something like that. he's been in the game for some time and hasn't been the type to spit his dummy out and run to the Press. So imo I think he's had a pretty big falling out with the Manager AND in front of others!
So then a question, will Miller be sold in January? and who too? my guess is that if there's no way back into the Team then Miller may end up at Hibs. Thoughts Bears?

1.) 30 Sep 2017 05:28:01
Sold lol 😁

2.) 30 Sep 2017 09:13:27
Looks like he was the leak in the dressing room. If true then no matter what you think of the manager Miller needs to go. Can't have any player undermine any manager like that

3.) 30 Sep 2017 14:38:03
Miller expressed sentiment to one of the former players now engaged in freelance media work. Boyd, Rae or Ferguson could not keep their mouth shut.



14 Sep 2017 23:18:45
I'm pretty sure that the majority of us can see that this Team is getting better. We have the Squad that can give the Tic a game especially if we play basically a 4-5-1.

Celtic have Players who are at a certain level and whether this game was at the Methadome or Ibrox, Brenda will have 5 in midfield albeit an Attacking midfield and we should do the exact same! I do not think we should go with 2 CDM's in Jack and Rossiter, in a 4-2-3-1 BUT I would rather that than a 4-4-2 against that lot!

So the Team that ended the Dundee Game OR a 4-1-4-1 with Jack in front of back 4 and Dorrans and Pena in the middle of the midfield, but we cannot go 4-4-2 we will get over run in midfield.

1.) 15 Sep 2017 06:48:36
I think its got to be Rossiter instead of Pena for this 1 Andy. Penas still trying to find his feet albeit he's showing signs of improvement but i think this has came abit early for him. we should maybe give him the last 20mins when we're 4 up😜. (only kidding rayman99 and bham before uz have a meltdown)

2.) 15 Sep 2017 08:00:34
IMO it has to be 4-5-1 with a lot of work from the midfield.
tav, Alves, Cardoso, Wallace

Rossiter Jack
Candeais Dorrans Windass


This gives is a lot of power from midfield compared to previous games and options from the bench. However we are going to need the mids supporting up top.

Would like to see Pena and Miller later if we need a goal.

3.) 15 Sep 2017 08:44:29
Exact team i'd play bluegenius

4.) 15 Sep 2017 09:10:39
Can't disagree with your team either bluegenius! We have to flood the midfield against them on the 23rd! Although this team suggests 2 defensive mids, in jack and rossiter, it can effectively become a five when needed! Good selection bluegenius!

5.) 15 Sep 2017 09:50:17
Agree blue genius.

Game has come too soon for Pena.

I'd like Rossiter to get a game on Tuesday right enough to get him up to speed.

6.) 15 Sep 2017 10:17:14
That's the team I'd go with also. The 2 holding can provide cover for full backs when they go, however, i'd expect a more disciplined role for full backs. They need to be clever when to go and when not as they obv have pace down both sides.

7.) 15 Sep 2017 10:59:43
I agree with the team but I've got feeling miller will be included. either LW or up front

8.) 15 Sep 2017 11:32:42
I thought about Miller on the left for more penetration and if Candeias is crossing from right he could hopefully ghost in at back post. Also he is usually good for a goal against them.
Just not sure he could provide cover defensively.
I also agree that our full backs need to be disciplined in when they break out.

9.) 15 Sep 2017 12:21:18
Same here IvlarkGraham. i don't think Rossiter will start and i think Kenny will take up the pos in and around Morelos

10.) 15 Sep 2017 13:07:35
I think Windass has got to start on the left, he brings qualities to the team which nobody else has. we've got to give them something to think abt and not stand off them and be pedestrian

11.) 15 Sep 2017 13:16:59
Cant really argue with that selection. Do prefer a 4-1-4-1 though. Think the 2 defensive mids leaves us sitting too deep. Moving fwd into the season i'm hoping to see the exact team you've stated but losing one of the defensive mids, rossiter, and putting pena (if he comes good) in beside dorrans/ behind morelos. Will be a tough game but if we play well they'll know they've been in a game. El Buffalo 1st to score!

12.) 15 Sep 2017 14:05:54
i think the back four will be the ususal ;tav cardosso alves wlado,
middle will be imo jack dorrans sitting windass and candias wide and miller and morelos up front.
miller is generally good for a goal against that lot and like you said pena isn't quite ready to tackle his first old firm or i'd have played pena just behind morelos

13.) 15 Sep 2017 18:51:21
Guys, why are we all picking the team to face Celtic. 2 very important games before then and if not won then we will be within touching distance of writing the season off. Focus on tonight's game, anything other than a convincing performance and victory will be extremely disappointing. The Celtic game will look after itself.

14.) 15 Sep 2017 19:12:05
SG I like your positivity, its nice to see a post about your own club on here lol.

15.) 15 Sep 2017 22:46:35
Shocking display tonight, shows just how far short we still are. Pena does not look like a player. Where was Joe Dodoo from the bench.



10 Sep 2017 21:00:45
Out of the following who do you think will START against Thistle in the Cup Game?
Wilson. Declan. Rossiter. Nemane. Pena. Herrera. Hardie.
Thistle gave Celtic a decent game at Fir Park but I do think Caxinha will give at least a couple of these Players a start. Also think that Ailnwick will start in Goals.
In my opinion we will see Declan given his chance and depending on how the game is going we will see Nemane put on at half time. Pena will either start or be given the 2nd half too, Caxinha may want to be extra cautious and give our usual starters a place on the bench just to be safe.
With Roberts back at the Piggery the new lad Declan may be a better option as I've heard the Player is fast but its a gamble, the occasion is a lot to take in but he has played in front of big crowds. For me I like the idea of Pena playing between the Midfield and Morelos up front especially against the likes of the Unwashed!
I would usually prefer a 4-1-4-1 system BUT playing a 4-4-1-1 at Ibrox meaning Pena could drop deeper to assist the Midfield which I think will be needed at times! but we would still have an attacking threat and after watching Pena he does make some great runs into the box.

1.) 10 Sep 2017 22:02:38
Firhill even Andy😂

2.) 11 Sep 2017 00:10:02
Why is the game @ Fir park?

3.) 11 Sep 2017 00:12:29
I can't see there being much rotation, with the team similar to the line up against Dunfermline?
I think we need to keep the momentum going to build up the confidence before the Celtic game.

4.) 11 Sep 2017 00:14:28
It's the quarter final of the cup we should be going with as strong a starting line up as possible!

There will be very few changes, maybe a maximum of two (Pena and Herrera in? ) as it should be. Pedro has to keep playing his best available eleven at least until after the mhankies game and maybe for a while after it too. Chopping and changing at this vital stage in building momentum is suicide.

Got to agree Bigsam, i could see the point if we had big Euro games during the week that are played with a higher intensity but we've not so the players should b able to handle it.2/ 3 players at best should get a chance (pena/ herrera/ rossiter)

Reckon might change goalkeepers and possibly bring windass back in for niko but keep the same 11.

considering that the cups may be our only hope of silverware i hope he doesn't put out a weak/ weaker team as we do need a good cup win to start things rolling again.
i think the alnwick will get the nod though as he does deserve to be playing.

Why does Alnwick deserve to be playing?

Really hope Pedro gives Pena some decent game time over the next 3 matches and also gives Declan a shot at LB. Was thinking Wallace may be given a go at LM, we DO have options its just who has the ability to play there and produce the goods!
Never the less I still think we should play a 4-5-1 or a 4-1-4-1 in the Old Firm game.
Plus we all know how it goes, if Pena plays and I think he will, if he has a great game then he will change the attitudes of most of those who have slated the Player and Manager, not completely! but he will have bought himself some time. Said it before but imo Pena is one of those Players who feeds off the Support.

I really hope Pena comes good but what I have seen of him so far for our most expensive signing I seriously have my doubts, he doesn't even look fit but of course that can be worked on through time but as a club just now he is a player that we just can't afford to have hanging about the sidelines all the time 🇬🇧

2.) 07 Sep 2017 13:18:16
people need to stop this our most expensive player capper.
he was only 2.5 mill roughly which doesn't make him a messi does it infact its hard to get a quality player for that price so stop judging the guy on his money and give him time to settle into the glasgow way of life remember ally mccoist to name but one was almost kicked out the door he had that much of a poor start to his carrer i honestly feel that these guys just need game time and they will come good

3.) 07 Sep 2017 15:33:50
People need to stop mentioning him being our most expensive signing? He was though.

Also Union, how much of him have you seen so far? About an hour of football in total?

Must be a record for writing someone off, even for us. Well played, sir.

Should pursue a job in football scouting with such an eye for a player.

4.) 08 Sep 2017 11:35:28
Terrible analogy again peds. Ally was judged on a poor start playing football, but Pena has hardly kicked a ball. Two totally different scenarios.
What people are judging him on is that he was a player money was spent on (I'll try not to mention our most expensive summer signing) who is not getting game time. Do you not think that is a worry?
It has to be the most extravagant luxury player scenario. Spend money on a player, pay him a reasonable wage (no idea how much) and don't play him.
Who knows what'll happen in the future, but I find it a worry.

I like McLeish but I'm not a huge fan of his style of Play, if we do find ourselves looking for a new Manager then I would rather have Tommy Wright in before big Eck!
I am still backing Pedro to get this Team clicking! If we can get a good run of winning results and can book a place in the Lge Cup Final the Support must get off his back and let the Man continue building a Squad that WILL challange! Changing the Manager will only set us back another Season AND the next Manager may not get the finances needed to build what HE thinks is needed! A new Manager will most likely want and need to move Players out and imo some of the Players that Caxinha has brought in may need a Season to settle in AND also get to grips with the style of Scottish Football! There's loads of high profile Players down South who took a Season to get regular first Team Football and show just exactly what they can do! BUT its because their playing for Rangers in this Football Goldfish Bowl, TIME! is a luxury especially if you have been subject to a decent Transfer Fee.
Anyways I think Pedro should definitely be given the WHOLE Season as long as we are competing for 2nd at the very least (AND I HATE SAYING THAT BTW! ) I had high hopes at the beginning but realistically 2nd would suffice. If Ped can get this Team playing, go on a run and if the Board have faith and decide to give him some decent funds for Jan and Pedro actually finds 2 or even 3 Players of quality, I would love to see us have a great 2nd half of the Season AND getting a result against the Tic!

The main reason why Moult has scored the amount of goals at Well is due to the fact that the opposition actually come out and try to attack! i'm not saying we shouldn't go for him but it needs to be considered. Does he really have what it takes to play at Ibrox? We need quality Players who can actually provide the balls to our front line and these are the area's where we should spend. I think Candieas can do it on the right and Players like Dorrans AND Pena have the ability to produce balls through the middle and all will get better the more this Team play! We just need someone to make the LM/ LW position theirs but again we must be patient and give the Team and Manager time.
I really don't understand thr calls for Ped to go as its far too early to judge plus do people actually think a change of Manager would only bring us instant success? It would be the worst thing we could do, give the Players and Manager a God Dam chance!

I understand what your saying but I was just talking about back up if we suffered too many injuries. I've always thought Wilson was a decent CH especially if his partner was a confident Player. But now that the Transfer Window has been and gone, if we did find ourselves in a situation like that then having Hill around could be useful. I understand what your saying though.

I know I'm being optimistic BUT Pedro doesn't come across as being the type of Manager that takes any sh#t! and any Player who does not take on his work ethics, is dropped from 1st Team Training and moved on. He does not want anybody in or around the Squad moaning about early starts or days off!
This is why when it comes to Pena, he obviously knew the Player had some baggage BUT still brought him to Ibrox!
Pena MUST have something about him for Ped to take the risk and spend over £2m! I'm still 100% behind the Manager and I do think that yeah Pena has it all to do but that the guy does have the talent and will show it. Also how anyone can judge Pena when he hasn't even played a full 90 mins is ludicrous.
Its far too soon to judge the new Players and Pedro!

Well apparently we're all absolutely raging about Dodoo going out on Loan?
It makes sense tho, its better for him to hopefully get some competitive game time elsewhere. Gets him off the wage bill too plus I don't think that Ped feels the same way about Dodoo as he does about O'halloran and Forrester. Dodoo may have the right attitude and could still have a future although it is a long shot but going on Loan is the right thing to do.

Will Hardie be given some decent game time soon? Not saying he's the answer but now Miller seems to have fell down pecking order I hope Hardie gets a chance.

I agree that up until now Pena has not shown us why we paid between £2-2.5M for him. I personally think that he will come good, and the only way he can do this is by getting game time!
I do think that he has ability and a good football brain BUT he needs to get used to the tempo of our game.
I get why there were supporters who were unhappy at him being selected for the Accies game, although I've not seen the match and I do not know how he performed? But Pedro must include Pena as this is the only way he can get to the level he needs be at.
For me I would use him in games against Teams that we should be dominating but against Teams such as the Sheep, Hibs, Hearts and St. Jstne if he is still off pace then a change must be made!
It is difficult and frustrating to take but its the only way to get this Player to the level he should be at!
Again I know its p! sh BUT there is NO better way to get the Player up to speed than to throw him in! He needs to get his act together soon tho and if Caxinha is saying that he is 100% fit then its surely just a matter of time until he starts to produce the goods when it matters.

Think the Team used in the 2nd half is the one which will start for the Old Firm.
The only change may be Declan for Wallace if he shows himself to be a better choice! The guy is an International, played EPL at 19yrs old so should be ok with the size of crowd.
Just because he wasnt getting a game doesn't mean he's crap he just didn't suit the new Manager!
Whatever tho, playing with Pena in between the Mid and Morelos sounds good its still an attacking system which for a home game IS positive. Playing just 4 in the middle won't cope and Miller will be dropping deep anyways! But I've noticed that Pena in my opinion suits that role, he makes really intelligent runs. When this guy is 100% fully fit I can see him scoring and creating a barrel load of goals!

Was thinking the same CD Ranger but it seems as though we will be one of the 8 best runners up. Can't remember if its more than one Team that look like finishing with less points than us but surprisingly it does look like we will be one of the eight best runners up!

Ledley is a solid Player and if he's fit etc I'm surprised that he's not been signed up, in saying that there is absolutely no way Ibrox could be his destination!
Just my opinion but I think it would be difficult to find a forward of quality that's out of Contract and any decent Players would probably be Defensive.
