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!

Dominic Solanke big Chelsea U23 striker would be a decent loan move. He's out of contract next summer but doubt we'd be able to get him on a permanent contract, would need Chelsea to pay a good chunk of his wages.

I don't see Conte rating the SPL very highly in all honesty. I would also expect Warbs getting a forward who can play in multiple positions as he clearly adores Garner. I personally think that Hardie should be the back up for Garner.


2.) 16 Dec 2016 09:18:35
Hardie has struggled with St Mirren in the championship so what makes you think he could do anything in the premiership?


 

 

04 Dec 2016 13:07:43
Not in our price range but imagine the number of goals Jordan Rhodes would score for us, just been said to be available for transfer by Middlesbrough.

1.) 04 Dec 2016 13:23:11
Thing that stands out the most is "not in our price range"


2.) 04 Dec 2016 15:16:00
Louis moult isn't in our price range lol.

With each new interview you can see Warburton getting deeper into making enemies with the media.
Don't get me wrong, most would struggle with the constant scrutiny and pressure but he's really not helping his situation right now with how he comes across spouting the same pish and brushing off every question as if they're all invalid.
He's getting difficult questions because he and the team has not performed this season, and should not forget that.

BlueIsTheColour

1.) 02 Dec 2016 20:55:34
Warburton telling the media he's in for a goalscoring midfielder but not giving the name smacks of desperation to me. he never gives anything away to the media but it sounds to me he's trying to buy time with the supporters.


2.) 02 Dec 2016 23:45:03
@BlueIsTheColour - who cares if he falls out with the media? I'm only interested if he and the players can turn it around on the park.


3.) 03 Dec 2016 01:04:37
I'm glad Dave King has more faith in MW than some folk. RFC aren't in habit of making knee jerk reactions as far as managers are concerned. We're in the mix still with a team built on a shoestring, adjusting to premier league football. How many teams get promoted then go straight back down? That'll no be us. DEFO. If your not going to cut MW a bit of slack, at least give him some respect for what he's done for all of us.


4.) 03 Dec 2016 06:12:41
@Warbtheone, you can't compare our team to the usual teams that come up. Our "shoestring" budget dwarfs the budgets of the teams around us, yet we can't buy a win off the same teams.


5.) 03 Dec 2016 10:13:15
Some people just don't seem to get it. The budget for players far surpasses the budgets of nearly every other team in the league. Warburton has had a disaster in the transfer market this season, constantly picks players who are awful and won't change his tactics. He alone is to blame for the shambles and rather than having a go at the press or the Rangers support who criticise him he should take a long look at himself and his actions.


6.) 03 Dec 2016 13:31:26
@biffo316 - I don't buy the budget guff. Its how you perform on the park not a spreadsheet otherwise Celtic would never have drawn with City in the CL. It's more important what you do with the budget.

There's Halliday asked if the Barton incident is behind him and. "Yeah, 100 per cent, " he said. "It's stuff that goes on in a football training ground every single day. " If it was as simple as an every day training ground spat and we lost arguably the best player in our squad because the babies of the group couldn't handle it, I'll no be chuffed.

BlueIsTheColour

1.) 02 Dec 2016 10:52:14
how can you possibly say Barton is the best player in our squad. he played what 6 games and showed no ability or physical presence in any of them. it wasn't the bust up that got Barton sacked.


2.) 02 Dec 2016 12:10:31
See the wee word beginning with an A just before I said that, it was put in there just for you mate.


3.) 02 Dec 2016 13:28:27
I wouldn't even agree with that.


4.) 02 Dec 2016 13:59:43
barton is an overated flop and he did nothing for the team and was worse than a man down in the old firm.
he isn't as good as he thinks he is.


 

 

16 Nov 2016 10:38:06
A fast strong CB is at the top of everyone's list. Think we missed a trick in Summer with Curtis Nelson moving to Oxford for a very small fee. Anyone think Micah Richards could do a job here? Still only 28, and out of favour at Villa.

1.) 16 Nov 2016 11:22:21
I think we've got to look beyond McParland's comfort zone of the lower English leagues and tap into Kranjcar's Rangers status. His dad's coach of Dinamo Zagreb and Croatia produces a ton of great players. Maybe Nico could do a bit of scouting for us as he spends the next 8 months on our payroll recovering. Warburton's worried about the time it takes for foreign players to adapt to Scotland and what better than a fellow Croat to help you settle in.


2.) 16 Nov 2016 14:00:33
yes its worrying about foreigners settling into life in Scotland but its just as hard for the boys moving from league one and such as the pressure is immense.


3.) 16 Nov 2016 17:48:08
Like that idea kfraser always thought players from that region have great technical ability and tend to be hard working pros, problem with younger british players is the media have them believing they're world beaters before they've proved anything.


4.) 16 Nov 2016 21:44:15
Croats are a fine people, very like Scots, minus the weather its quite similar! Players from Croatia and the surrounding region have done pretty well in the past e. g. Prso, Jelavic, Papac etc.


5.) 17 Nov 2016 11:43:53
Branimir Kalaica got signed by Benfica on a free from Dinamo Zagreb in July this year, 18 year old big 6'5 CB with bags of potential, that would have been a good opportunity I think.


6.) 17 Nov 2016 11:31:16
Waggie could show newcomers the chip shops!
If that is true I doubt MW sanctions chips even in mid week.


7.) 18 Nov 2016 18:03:10
If he was a player like Ferguson or one of our many quality players of the past he could eat as may fish suppers as he wants. Unfortunately he does not come into that class but then he is not alone in that these days!

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.

Hardie and Thompson are out on loan to Championship teams to prove their worth and they're doing ok, but not enough to suggest they'd be good enough for the first team when every game is crucial. Burt and Gilmour too young/ physically not developed enough for first team. If they were better than what we've got, they'd be in the team.

Would like to see John Souttar come in, young Scottish talent and fits the MW system. Someone on loan for midfield as we've got plenty of good CM's on the books just all injured. Could do with a clinical striker as well, but have no idea who we could afford that's good enough?

Agree it's a lot harder to consistently perform for Rangers than look good in a game against the current team, but I'd take John Souttar over any of Kiernan, Hill, Senderos in a heartbeat. and I've got to say Wilson's getting awfae close to that list as well.

Garner does get stuck in but I'd rather watch him run it close with the ref than watch the rest of our team who look scared to death of a 50/ 50. JG is showing the "passion" the team is lacking and others should follow suit!
