Folks shoot me down in flames if you want. I think the Celtic game has papered over the cracks. Signing Davis and Defoe is a huge mistake IMO. Why are we signings players at that age who demand huge wages? We changed our formation to suit these 2 guys who haven't played 90 mins for months but we start them against a team 3rd in the league. Last night was a huge game and both of these guys aren't match fit for a start. We haven't even sorted out our back line yet which is priority. Worral and McCauley are both terrible. We are playing a midfielder at left back (not Halliday's biggest fan but he's done well) when we have 2 very good left backs in our squad. Tav is never captain material and is not a right back. Again we have a decent right back in Flannagin, who kept getting played out of position. I think Arfeild is a great signing but the problem is keeping him fit. On to Jack. Having shown glimpses of what he can do has been a dissapointing signing. If it wasn't for El buffalo or Shagger we would be f**ked. Many young players did we have in that team last night? 2. Worrall and Kent. 2 guys on loan. Kent is a great player and we must try and sign the boy. Lafferty is been terrible. Yes you can say he's not had a run of games, but when was the last time he scored? . The game last night was crying for a formation change but AGAIN SG got caught in the headlights and got out witted by Stevie Clark. The only positive under Gerrard was a run in Europe but at the final hurdle we couldn't beat a very poor Rapid team. If we don't finish a close second I think SG won't last long as the Ranger manager. Like to know other bears thoughts.

As2974, I've read your post twice and to be honest, i agree 100%. We don't want to hear it and want to be positive about our team. You have stated the facts whether we like it or not and i respect that. A Rangets team like that should be winning comfortable. There will be fans defending Gerrard and i get that but what improvements have we made? Apologies for being negative guys but sitting at a cold Rugby Park last night, watching that pish has really pissed me off.

2.) 24 Jan 2019 21:41:57
I didn't go mate but there was no back up plan from SG. I couldn't believe he didn't change things. He lacks the tactical awareness we need. I can't believe we are not giving wallace a game. Play him at CB at least! I want SG do well but he's not got it at the momemnt to be our manager. Said it all along SC would have been less of a risk.

3.) 24 Jan 2019 22:16:51

One of the most honest and best posts on here for a while.

4.) 24 Jan 2019 23:58:20
Sorry not got me . none of you were saying that after we hammered the smellies. that’s football . we have no god given right to win games . Even the great teams lose sometimes . Get a grip Kilmarnock are no mugs . For the first quarter we were all over them . Ok we imploded . it happens but you guys are so fickle . One game up . we are going for title . one game down its sack the board . manager. and players . Sorry guys but the reality is its s sad reflection of our west of Scotland mentality . yes mental. Have some faith for gods sake and support the team. that’s if you are supporters and not trolls.

5.) 25 Jan 2019 00:07:12
very good and honest post about the team and the way things are going so far.
It is not just the performance of the other night that a lot of fans are getting annoyed at its all the poor performances before that 1 good game against Celtic doesn't make up for the other poor games and a lack of plan b from gerrard is frustrating changes need be made eirler in games if things not working out.

6.) 25 Jan 2019 00:49:23
Mols you’re spot on 👍🏼

We are a work in progress, whether people like it or not.

If fans don’t realise this (i think most do however), managers will be sacked and we start from scratch yet again, if that happens then there will be no stopping 10 in a row.

7.) 25 Jan 2019 08:27:59
A work in progress is signing and playing young talent not 34, 36 or 39 year olds. We've been down this road before and look that that ended. So totally disagree with your post sorry.

8.) 25 Jan 2019 09:43:43

I See you've listed 3 older players there? Are you trying to say we've not signed younger players? Because that's just not true.

We were calling out for expierence in the first half of the season and that's what has been brought in.

9.) 25 Jan 2019 10:32:38

These players that have been brought in haven’t played all season. It was painfully obvious neither Davis or Defoe were match fit and both struggled badly. McAuley is nearly 40 why are we wasting time with a guy who clearly can’t run? Worrall is awful and won’t be there next season. It would be better to send him back to Forrest and get someone like Halkett a young player out of contract at the end of the season.

10.) 25 Jan 2019 10:45:08
Mols, you are part of the rot that has set in over the past almost a decade. Calling any fan who criticizes the team, the board or the company or who gives an opinion you don't agree with a troll makes you seem like the troll. Are you a Celtic fan in disguise? It looks that way as you seem to be happy with the way the current situation. Don't you want things to get better on the pitch? There's nothing wrong with constructive criticism.

11.) 25 Jan 2019 11:28:34
Arthur, they won’t stay that way forever, they will get fit. Defoe’s already scored a goal and he’s not even fit?

I agree with McAuley he’s done, but I think he was only brought in as extra cover, hence the one year deal. It made sense at the time, low cost etc.

We have a mix of youth and experience now, need to give the new recruits time to bed in surely you must agree? Also I think playing Davis was an error from Gerrard. Defoe was always starting but probably should have stuck with Mcrorie in midfield.



30 Sep 2018 15:43:14
Didn't see all the game but Livi deserved their win. Gave SG a lot to think about. One criticism is the boy Middleton shouldn't have been dropped. What has the boy got to do to get a start?


1.) 30 Sep 2018 15:53:31
Ryan kent should have been starting!
He's arguably the most creative player in our team!

2.) 30 Sep 2018 15:58:12
Wish I missed it too! how can you say who deserved what when you didn't even see it.

3.) 30 Sep 2018 16:05:32
Middleton came on and was just as poor as the rest. However was surprised neither Kent or Middleton started and Whyte does Candeias play? He offers nothing.



30 Aug 2018 19:14:58
Guys what's your thoughts on El Buffalo?

IMO anyone comes in with a decent bid before the end of the window sell him.

He's turning in to a liability.



1.) 30 Aug 2018 19:44:49
My thoughts are i'm glad your not the gaffer! he's been in great form, Stevie G will coach this out of him and learn him how to channel his aggression and frustration properly, He will lead us to 55 - show him the love!

2.) 30 Aug 2018 19:45:34
Looked a weak sending off to me. Both of them. I like him a lot but needs to calm down. Whatever happened to a word in the ear? Are you not allowed to speak to refs anymore? Anyway got the job done and that's all that matters. Let's go.

3.) 30 Aug 2018 19:59:46
Forget it he is our best striker no way gerrard will sell him the lad will eventually learn from this.

4.) 30 Aug 2018 20:00:10
Keep him at all costs imo.

Is he a liability though? The one against Aberdeen was never a red and rescinded.

Petulant and silly today, but no worse than I have seen a million times before from virtually every player at some point, and can't rememner the last time i seen a player go off for dissent- I'm presuming that referee spoke Spanish as I'm pretty sure Fredo doesn't speak German. So considering the other one was rescinded, to date in his career he has a single solitary red card - he just needs a talking to and experience.

5.) 30 Aug 2018 20:02:02
Mate you want to have a word with yourself get rid of Fredo can we just punt you instead.

6.) 30 Aug 2018 20:06:59
Sorry but I don’t think so. Watch Morelas on Sunday, he is due performance.

7.) 30 Aug 2018 20:13:18
No he is great footballer and we should be looking to hang on to him, what he needs is some anger management!

8.) 30 Aug 2018 21:08:17
He was an absolute midden tonight, but sell our top striker on the last day of the window because he spat out the dummy? I despair of some of our fans. Leave it to the manager who will get the boy's head right then watch him go from strength to strength.

9.) 30 Aug 2018 21:08:36
The boys firey temperament is great to watch.
However his reactionary anger is a worrying.

I think that selling him on for 5/ 6 million would be an error. Look at Suarez for an example of how a hot headed full bloodied athlete can (when surrounded by th right people) control their temperament.

Morelos is a unique talent for me and given the right coaching and a desire from himself to improve himself and his temperament could earn himself a huge move and more importantly for us a significant fee for our club.

Having said that though I really want see him continue to improve and play at our club for years to come.

10.) 30 Aug 2018 21:24:29
sell him as soon as possible, go all out for Solanke on loan and bring in Shankland for cover.

11.) 30 Aug 2018 21:37:03
Behave RH . would be better suited celebrating our win than hi lighting our negatives.

12.) 30 Aug 2018 22:01:01
in the OP he asked for thoughts on Morelos and I gave them, take your silly comment elsewhere.

13.) 30 Aug 2018 22:58:37
Morelos / Suarez comparison 😂😂😂😂.



21 Jul 2018 09:33:25
Why are we so concenered about buying or loaning midfielders?

We've lost:-
MOH (dunno what's happening)

We've bought one strikerin Sadiq. Morelos can't hit a barn door and Windas (not a striker as such) is also off form, yet we are looking at more midfielders.

Come on SG.


1.) 21 Jul 2018 09:47:13
MOH is away to Austraalia mate.

2.) 21 Jul 2018 10:08:56
How do you know about Sadiq? Do you own a barn?

3.) 21 Jul 2018 10:12:14
5 strikers mentioned. All 5 are terrible. We currently have Morelos Sadiq and rudden. Sure there will be 1 more in. Kent will play wide right or left in front 3.

4.) 21 Jul 2018 21:51:55
Look at that list mate. Miller only player worth a game and he’s 55. Get your point though. I’m sure we are in for a striker somewhere. Hope it’s the lad from twente as he’s dynamite.

Morelos couldn’t hit a double decker with a shotgun (Had to use it) .

No seriously I think it would do Morelos a great service to have a sighter with his first sniff in every game. A nice target shot to get him moving. At this point he’s a mile off what we need.

Agree about Grezda. When was the last player that came through our youth ranks who constantly plays in the first team? Because we have to give some young guys a chance. There's surely got to be one. We can't keep buying players. Breed our own.

We have Grezda, JJ, Canadias, Hastie, Murphy, possibly Kent, Middleton and Arfield. I would like us to start giving our youth a chance otherwise what's the point of the Hummell complex?

Because Kamara is better than McCrorie. Kamara has been excellent since he came in.
SG is clueless ans will win us nothing. If it wasn't for the run in Europe he would be gone. Again when it matters we fails to deliver.

Great post SLK. SG is being judged on his player career. I don't really care about it to be honest but I do care about his management career. He's not ready for a job like Rangers. Chopping and changing and buying players who were great maybe 10 years ago. It's not the way forward. He has no clue about tactics or how to change a game. If we have any chance of winning the league get Stevie Clarke in now before he goes down south.
