On Sky Sports Regional Paper Talk section the and the Reading Post is linking us with Reading midfielder Liam Kelly. Anyone heard anything about this?

BlueIsTheColour

{Ed039's Note - Yes he is a player Warburton likes, he is out of contract at the end of the season and could move under the same circumstances that Rossiter and Dodoo moved)


1.) 16 Nov 2016 20:41:42
Taking into account that frank lampard is now almost at the very end of his career, with his next move obviously not going to be money motivated, do you think there's any chance at all that we could sign frank lampard?


2.) 16 Nov 2016 21:57:32
Nope. And for the reason you put at the beginning of your post. And cash too. Would anyone be willing to take 5% of previous earnings? That being said, you would think that MW will still be looking for the experience in midfield that he was looking for when he signed JB and NK.

Personally, I don't want Rangers to be the vehicle for players to finish illustrious careers. I'd rather it was the club where they started them.


3.) 17 Nov 2016 11:24:02
why do we need a midfielder?
only areas I think we are weak is defence and attack we need a centre back with pace and a poacher to bang the goals in.
if warbs goes for more middle of the park player to sit on the bench because he only plays three in there then sum1 needs to give him a slap.


4.) 17 Nov 2016 11:37:00
Would obviously love Lampard in the team but there's no chance he'll come up here. He'll become a Sky Sports pundit and join up with Carra, Neville, Henry no doubt.


5.) 19 Nov 2016 15:01:47
I see the comments about Red Bull Teams being universally hated, well from what I can see, in today's Scotland, we are universally hated anyway so if we get a sponsor that brings us back to the glory days why not. Personally I don't give a proverbial about the supporters of other Scottish Teams especially those that play in Green!

Only one positive - Barjonas looks a player. Comfortable on the ball, picks a pass, good positioning. We've been playing without a midfield recently, need to have him starting I think.

BlueIsTheColour

1.) 18 May 2017 10:02:28
Build a team around him. Could b our next Barry ferguson


2.) 18 May 2017 10:31:47
I thought Beerman had a great game last night under difficult conditions. Him and Barjonas were two positives to take from the game.


3.) 18 May 2017 10:34:43
Will be interesting to see what happens with him next season as he did look better and more confident last night. If he isn't going to play regular with us next season then I hope he is put out on loan to another premiership team rather than be sent to a struggling championship side


4.) 18 May 2017 11:08:53
I guess it depends on how many players we will see come in over the summer. I hope he gets his chance during pre-season as I wouldn't mind seeing him and Rossiter playing together in that 4-2-3-1 formation. I think young Aiden Wilson looked very good considering he was up against Rooney, who is a big old unit with a lot of pace. I think it was in the first 5mins when he chased down a ball in the corner and I was surprised at how quick he was.


5.) 18 May 2017 13:08:03
Don't think he's quite at "build the team around him" nellylad. But the 3 kids in the back 4 and Barjonas in front of them, they all gave a good account of themselves.


6.) 18 May 2017 13:47:21
nellylad, no pressure on the kid, then? Give yourself a shake.

In somebodys livingroom behind there couch


3.) 28 Apr 2017 15:07:43
JLS - do you mean "behind someone's couch" as in - a friends house and its going to be hard to watch - or as in - Creepy weirdo hiding behind a strangers couch sneakily watching the game? because that's not ok! LOL.


4.) 28 Apr 2017 15:26:13
Very revealing Bg. Anything you want to unburden yourself of?


5.) 28 Apr 2017 16:27:50
Would love to unburden myself Bombadil but I'm afraid it will give away my location behind your couch!


6.) 28 Apr 2017 17:46:42
Pogue mahone's should have it on


7.) 28 Apr 2017 17:50:25
Love the idea of hiding behind somebody's couch, not only nervous about the game but you might also get caught, its like 50 shades of grey with football .
P. s i haven't watched 50 shades but get the general idea.
Anyway here's hoping we can grab some passion tomorrow and they have an off day, my bet 3 1 to the bears brown red card and a missed pen


8.) 28 Apr 2017 18:06:25
Anybodys couch will do 😂. all joking aside, it could be more of the same 2moro if the players go into it with an inferiority complex like last week and make Broony the loony look like Johan Cruyff again


9.) 28 Apr 2017 10:05:26
lmao through your fingers

Seeing a lot of people suggest Hodson should go back into the starting XI for Saturday. Personally, I don't think Hodson's the answer to our problems. He's good in 1v1s, but that's not where we were beaten. We were beaten in midfield, where none of our players got near them as we were outnumbered, outmuscled, outpassed and outran. I think Tav and Beerman (or Wallace if fit) are far better footballers than Hodson, we just need to swap one of our non-goalscoring forwards (Garner or Waggy) for someone who will participate in a midfield battle, or will help us keep possession long enough to create opportunities.

BlueIsTheColour

1.) 25 Apr 2017 19:23:28
Could not disagree with you more. a defenders first job is to defend and Hodson is a better defender than tav. I watched him play against a very strong German team and hold his own. He should be drafted in against Celtic this weekend. Tavs tackle on Sunday was like a school boys tackle. Sliding in like that in the box.


2.) 25 Apr 2017 21:37:39
Hooly78

Couldn't agree more that challenge from Tavernier was idiotic there was no way he was making that tackle and to dive in like that was incredibly naive.


3.) 25 Apr 2017 22:56:48
That tackle was the only mistake tav made he was one of if not our best player he was the one getting in the mankies faces if you think I'm wrong then rewatch the game


4.) 26 Apr 2017 08:01:36
Frustrated bear

It was a major incident in the match though he didn't need to make that tackle and there was no way he was getting to the ball. If you think I'm wrong watch the incident again


5.) 26 Apr 2017 08:46:20
I agree that challenge was reckless and stupid, but he made it in an area where any one of the LB, CBs or GK should have been there before him. He covered ground, defended well (bar the penalty slide tackle) and got forward to put in good crosses as well. Regardless, I think it's more important to drop Garner/ Waggy and strengthen what was a toothless midfield.


6.) 26 Apr 2017 08:55:51
To be fair to Tav he isn't a rightback, He really needs to be moved into the right mid spot. it would be like a new signing.


7.) 26 Apr 2017 09:17:00
Blueisthecolour

Would agree about Garner and Waghorn they should be dropped from a plane not just the team. 2 utterly useless individuals its cringeworthy that we paid £1.8m for Garner. Let's hope neither are anywhere near the team on Saturday

Does anyone who sees the youth teams regularly have an opinion on whether or not Atakayi or Burt are ready for first team? Great to see Beerman and Bates getting minutes, but heard more promising things about these two, and we could do with some pace and creativity.

BlueIsTheColour

1.) 12 Apr 2017 21:09:18
I've watched a few of the games and Burt is outstanding near enough every time. In all the games I watched it was Burt who makes the largest impact/ the telling pass or the goal on most occasions for the u20s. Atakayi has only recently hit a decent bit of form but he's rapid and got good feet, started to put on a bit muscle too. another one to watch out for Barjonas


2.) 12 Apr 2017 21:06:29
Physically i think Burt could handle it and from what I've read and heard about Atayaki he sounds like a craxking player although i ain't seen him in the flesh, hope both get a shot.


3.) 12 Apr 2017 21:10:28
Haven't seen a lot of either although heard a lot of good things about atayaki. I believe he got a double earlier this week. What i would say though is to truely measure the lads capabilities they need to either be playing reguarly in the 20s or at the very least training with the 1st team. Its a massive jump from performing well at 15s under 19s evens 20s to being a pick for the 1st team. Whether Caixinha uses the rest of this season to focus on that and the lads personal development i'm not sure. Ones for the future though.


4.) 12 Apr 2017 21:12:19
I believe that both of these boys are better than some players currently in the first team squad and could be promoted, but we already have a rather young squad. I think that promoting them to the senior squad now with a view to bringing them on next season would be an astute plan, provided we sign some good pros in the 26-30 bracket to become the nucleus of the team. This is the area in which we are severely lacking.


5.) 12 Apr 2017 21:14:54
Ive seen the youngsters play about 7 times this season. a couple of games were in the Scottish youth cup early on when hardy scored a hat trick and I think barjonas is probably the next midfielder to step up physicaly. he is ready and he has similar qualities to mckay with passing burt may be too light weight not seen atakayi so much as he was always a late sub but has blistering pace.

I would say mccrorie from the back was stand out a good 4 out of the 7 games as the best player he could fill any position across the back 4 and impressed by him also there's a boy upfront called rudden. I think that's his name he bangs them in for fun but may be a few years away for him was impressed by mccrorie, barjonas and rudden also burt as well but think he should maybe stay with the youth at the moment just my opinion lol


6.) 12 apr 2017 21:18:14
they seem a bit lightweight to me.
only see what i can on rangers tv though


7.) 12 Apr 2017 21:31:54
Josh Jeffries is quite the player.


 

 

03 Mar 2017 08:33:25
Neither were top of my list, but the more I read and think about Wilson as DoF and Caixinha as Gaffer, the more optimistic I feel about the future. Hope we get these two in quickly now, and can build for next season well in advance. Let's give the new staff our full support, after all

BlueIsTheColour

1.) 03 Mar 2017 09:04:06
No matter who comes in we must give them our full support. It will take time to improve the team so let's have patience. Rome was not built in a day so let's back the boards judgement on whoever they select.


2.) 03 Mar 2017 14:06:39
I'll support whoever comes in but it seems over complicated for me. The guy has to get used to our culture, weather, grub etc. Tommy Wright proved himself the other night, got his subs, tactics spot on and nearly won the game. I think we're making a mistake if we don't try and get Wright in.


3.) 03 Mar 2017 14:09:34
put it this way we have been told there is money there for summer transfers.
but we are never told how much and to be honest i don't think it will be a lot

Can't wrap my head round people wanting Lafferty back and not Adam. Would take Adam back any day of the week, he's been performing in the EPL for years and would be a massive improvement on our current crop.

Still got two years to run on his contract so there will be a transfer fee, but he's expected to be leaving this summer.

Lansbury would be a fantastic signing, but if we only get two in I'd rather see a CB and a striker. Might be slightly controversial at the moment with his current form but I think McKay will become a fantastic no. 10 for us and should be given a free role in the centre of the park.

Don't think Hodson's anywhere near good enough, but if we signed Paterson then I'd have him RB and Tav RW, Wallace LB and McKay/ Weiss LW, I think that'd be a good setup.

If we're aiming for 2nd, to me it doesn't matter how many points we finish ahead of 3rd, but it definitely matters how close we are to 1st.

I think we should try our best to keep him as he'll almost certainly be worth a lot more than £500k in a couple of years. But trying to compete financially with the wages offer is not the way to go. He'd be picking up bigger wages than half our squad while he's still years away from being ready to play in the first team, that would be a dressing room nightmare!
