feel sorry for the guy last week that reassured everybody that Murphy was a tim supporter because he knew a close pal who knew Murphy well, but hey we all make they mistakes don't we, gave us a laugh though.

if by some miracle we were to be left £20 million quid, would the fans trust W W with the cash to buy better players, as he has generally worked and brought in players from lower leagues, would he know who to buy etc.

I would let him have his chance I think he could be a great manager with money in the transfer kitty


2.) 24 Jan 2017 16:04:42
Without a doubt. I have full confidence in him and davie


3.) 24 Jan 2017 20:22:06
I think Warburton has what it takes to be a successful manager but we don't currently have the cash it would take to mount a serious challenge. One criticism of the manager is that the majority of signings have a previous connection to him. Having said that, that is the markets we are shopping in. Any manager could be instantly better with a few million to splash. Davie Weir however could have made a bigger impact in my opinion. Considering his quality as a player our defence should be rock solid.


4.) 24 Jan 2017 22:05:59
No I wouldn't trust him as I think his signings by in late have been poor. He has had far more to spend that Aberdeen or Hearts yet I don't see much difference between the teams. To me it comes down to this. If fans are happy to be forever we'll behind Celtic and to be scrapping with Aberdeen and Hearts for 2nd place with the odd cup win thrown in the MW will do if however we ever want to challenge for the title then we need investmebt and a new manager


5.) 24 Jan 2017 21:45:45
Yip, mark warburton with a decent amount of money to spend would do very well indeed, imo. He'd prove that just like i think he is anyway, he's a good manager! He's rebuilding a legendary institution here guys! Be patient, get behind the guy and give the guy a break!

I think we should take heed of an article in the paper last week where one of Fergus McCans financial men, he suggested the only way Rangers can improve is to settle the fued between King and Ashley with maybe King having to resign from the chair, this would allow a new deal between Rangers AND SPORT DIRECT, he also said it could maybe let them invite a new chairman, and he suggested money man Kennedy, this is from some one who has helped rescue another big Glasgow club who were about to fold

Blacknessgaffer

1.) 17 Jan 2017 13:23:13
Not a bad suggestion but it looks as though the fued is way beyond any kind of compromise


2.) 17 Jan 2017 14:47:04
A good call, Kennedy would be an interesting choice. Unfortunately I tend to agree with Stewie25 that this is no longer about Rangers and Sports Direct. This is a personal battle between King and Ashley. Would Ashley see it as a victory if King resigned as part of a satisfactory solution for Rangers in the deal, if he was willing to negotiate then I suspect yes. Would King agree to step down for the good of the Club. I will leave that to others to decide.

At least he might come out of it as some kind of Martyr!


3.) 17 Jan 2017 15:21:04
I think Ashley would accept kings resignation from the board and then continue to screw the club for every penny he can get. Just the kind of man he he is in my opinion.


4.) 17 Jan 2017 15:41:06
Camoo

Would totally agree about Ashley this man has been shown to be contemptible and has treated his employees with contempt. His work practices are disgraceful and he is only interested in lining his own pockets. This man who quite happily go back to the days of slavery to fatten his wallet. Truly horrible individual


5.) 17 Jan 2017 18:12:08
stewie25. best reply of the day could not have put it better myself about fatty, he has no scruples, a bottom feeder


6.) 17 Jan 2017 17:48:03
Yes stewie25, your right mate this feud is way beyond repair! Its our club that's suffering because of this personal dave king V mike ashley row, with none of them prepared to back down. Blacknessgaffer's original post is bang on the money! We may need to put the club first, which should always be the case anyway, by changing dave king as chairman if this is going to help our club in the long run! IMO brian kennedy would be a fantastic choice to possibly replace king as chairman. He's got a terrific business head on him, and a bit of dough of course! Then we may have the chance to negotiate a much better deal, for rangers, with sports direct and puma! It may be the only way otherwise we're left in limbo with this deal for another 5 years yet!


7.) 17 Jan 2017 16:52:54
Green made that deal with Ashley and king is the guy trying to get us out of this deal which is way too lucrative for Ashley say to anyone aye okay just rip it up and start with one that won't make me as much money.

he is trying to get us out of that deal with the Ashley for the benefit of rangers and himself in the long run. he will invest in the team just not while the Ashley is about and its Ashley that is making us shop in these lower leagues and on loan players not king and co.

king and co were the ones to save this club and are still trying to get rid of all the bad stuff that was left behind by the old regime. what do you think?

What a difference a goal makes, after we scored you could see the confidence coming back, with most passes finding their man and everybody wanting the ball, maybe at last we are on our way, although it does show that pressure from the fans on the players does affect the teams play.

The reason scoreing a goal made a massive difference in confidence is simply? Week in week out we hardly score never mind play and make some descent chances😭😭😭.

A wee thought away from the actual fitba, back in the 60s, there was an idea that fans coming to the game could buy, both the match ticket and train ticket and the plan was to build a station right behind the Broomloan stand, as the train line runs right behind it, great idea not carried out then, but think of the relief it would give to fans going back to the toon , it would help all the chaos getting away from Ibrox.

In theory a sound idea, in practice unaffordable.


2.) 11 Aug 2016 13:05:38
lets be fair if u drive its not actually that bad and if u don't then there is the subway. I go along copland road home so don't actually know what its like at the other side as have had the same seat since I was about 13.


3.) 12 Aug 2016 12:28:50
i can remember the goods trains running behind the govan / centenary stand.

One of the best football brains in Scotland plays for. Falkirk Craig Sibbald he has been in their first team from age of 16 the players he has around him are not on same level and some team is going to get a bargain

The Barry fans should look at the state of Clyde, they are in danger of dropping out the league and playing in the Lowland league

I heard there is a manager who last year won his league by 11points got to a cup final beating the champions of premiere league in the semis and added another cup to the trophy room and is at present in a European place, now who would fancy him

lads we have a guy in charge, who played in the top leagues, he was an internationalist, he has had a time to learn his job with his coaching years, ok he is young, but if he does the job this season, give him a chance next year, ok maybe with Walt part time mentor

my worry about Pul is is he maybe think ourleague is easy and make the same mistake as Warberton and Souness in his early years when he thought that guys from England's lower leagues would be good enough to challenge the Tic only to find that better players were needed Pul is doesn't know the Scottish game

72 coop I know your not the only one on the site that would like Pedro to go, so for interest sake from all who want rid, how many managers a season would you be willing to sack, what if the next guy say next week comes in and in about 3 games has not won one a game do we horse him and get another and another till we get it correct, where do we stop, we played ok against St Johnston there is a gradual improvement, I think we will get second in the league which again would be progress, be patient there is no use sacking the manager, at least give him a season and get off his back, your moaning like others just makes you sound like a glory hunter and not a true supporter who in dire times gets behind the team

I agree with James, although Wes played well last season, his command of his box is poor he won't leave his line for anything, maybe some coaching in this area would help him, it would make him a better keeper, great save at the end though

this will def NOT happen, the reason we have Pedro is, that we approached McInnes 3 times and he refused the job, so the board asked ex player Pedro Mendes to find them a manager, hence Pedro, the guy who got this info also said that his informant said Pedro has been sacked 5 times, but also added that he thought the new manager should be given time now that he s here as sometimes you get a club that suits a particular manger and he the club, so let's hope so
