Have been cut off the last couple of days so have just got back to civilization and the great news that DM is not coming to us.
The only bit of it that leaves a bad taste is the way in which the board have gone about their business. I feel they were being cheap in their pursuit of DM, and if that was the case then they didn't have far to look, their very own U20 coach out thought their 'first' choice, twice in a week. GM should now be given to the end of the season to see what happens.

Haven't been jumping for joy tbh with the candidates for the managers job but if we are to go left field again then I feel the latest name (Berg) is worth a shout.

Disagree with you there
Tommy, I was simply meaning we don't know who is on the candidate list

5.) 17 Nov 2017 10:11:50
Cletusvandamme, Berg worth a shout, sacked last 4 manager jobs?

I'll go and wash my mouth out straight after this comment!

Good piece in the Record today from Sutton about what Cascarino and Barton have recently said regarding Scottish football.


1.) 09 Nov 2017 10:04:16
As much as I can't stand sutton most of the time. To be fairto him, he stands up for Scottish football constantly on BT. And I know he has digs at Gers every chance he gets, but most of it is true.

He's still an enormous p***k!

2.) 09 Nov 2017 10:27:05
Stands up for Scottish football as without it he'd be n the dole queue!

3.) 09 Nov 2017 13:07:50
No, beacuse he's actually right about it. There is decent players and teams up here, and the reason we don't compete in europe is due to the TV rights that the english get is 100x the amount anyone in our league get's.
Like I said he's still a p***k but does talk sense.

4.) 09 Nov 2017 14:16:58
Have just read the article and was on my way here to post a similar comment. He might be a bit of an a**e and also wear green tinted glasses but time and time again he stands up for Scottish football.

He defends it constantly and really seems to understand the restraints a lot of clubs face and appreciate the good work a lot of them are doing with very little money.

All pundits support teams and give them a break and enjoy having a pop at their rivals. There have been plenty of die hard rangers men in the media, promoting die hard rangers views over the years.

I know we have had it hard the last couple of years but it's really time to stop this "ban the media if they say a bad word about us" and "the whole world is out to get us" attitude.

5.) 09 Nov 2017 15:58:39
I totally agree that we are held back with regards tv money etc but where are the good players brought through in Scotland I could count them on my one hand! Proof is in the national team that half is made up of players born bred and played all there days south of the border the standard is garbage and players don't develop as they should in comparison to other nations

6.) 10 Nov 2017 06:10:13
Are they really that far from the truth?

7.) 10 Nov 2017 06:23:05

Apart from Celtic what other decent teams are there in Scotland? And why do these teams now fail regularly against minnow nations in the Europa league qualifiers?

8.) 10 Nov 2017 06:23:58
Look at the schools. No playing fields or crap surface. Look at coaches. Not qualified because it cost too much to get the badge so poor level of coaching. Look at what Iceland did 15 years ago. Put 5 a side and full pitches in every school. Took in around 500 cosches every year and put them to B badge level free of charge. Puts senior coaches over them who updste their understanding of the game and pass on knowledge. Took 15 years but Iceland are a much better side than Scotland so it can be done but it needs a plan and money from government. The SFA can't afford it so its got to be from above them.

Have to say that I'm underwhelmed by Del if I'm honest. I'm not sure what to think, is he the man to lead us forward or is he a safe bet to stabilise us for a couple of years?
Not having a go, just putting my thoughts out there as I'm sure there are quite a few of us thinking and feeling the same thing.


1.) 05 Nov 2017 12:08:44
Think he will do well and knows what's required . after all he's been plotting tactics against us so knows strengths/ weaknesses . Think he can hit the ground running without wholesale change . just my opinion. a lot of people were underwhelmed with Walter Smith . he soon changed opinion!

2.) 05 Nov 2017 12:15:45
100% Cletus, I honestly believe the ship is pretty steady at present and the next appointment needs to be able to push on and for that there will need to be significant funds put their way. For me McIness will no doubt get 2nd comfortably for the next couple of years which is fine but I also believe Murty could do this, McLiesh could do this, most managers could do it with the budget and players available.

We NEED to be qualifying for the Europa League ASAP and McInnes is surely a risky appointment having never achieved this. Also his knowledge of players seem to be limited to the British market, we’ve been down this route before. For players of a certain level then Rangers is the biggest move of their career and I really believe we need players who are looking to advance their careers via Rangers.

3.) 05 Nov 2017 12:24:10
Just my opinion guys but from my own personal point of view, graeme murty ticks a lot more boxes than derek mcinnes, to become the 17th manager of glasgow rangers, here's why! Graeme murty is already employed with us, he knows our structure and full set up from youths all the way through to the 1st team, he has tactical nous, he has players wanting to run through brick walls for him, the players like him, he's a good coach who CAN work under our DOF mark allen, there's no 800k compensation to fork out! Onto derek mcinnes, he IMHO only has 1 thing up on murty, he's a more experienced manager, having managed st. johnstone, bristol city and now aberdeen! I've given u all the info here guys, u choose! Its a no brainer for me! Give murty the job until christmas, if our upturn on form continues, then at the beginning of january, give murty a 12 month rolling contract! No risk here as far as i'm concerned!

4.) 05 Nov 2017 12:33:20
I'm kind of non plussed if McInnes gets the job. The prospect of him hardly excites but given a chance I believe he is capable of doing a good job.

I'm not stating this as a reason to sign him but I think Aberdeen will be weaker without him. Which I guess is a positive.

It goes without saying (and has been said countless times already) but whoever gets the jobs we should all get behind him 100%.

5.) 05 Nov 2017 12:46:56
Watching Mboro v Sunderland James taverniers brother playing for boro looks decent scored first goal.

6.) 05 Nov 2017 13:08:50
I agree supercoop if macinnis gets job I would give him my full backing but I would rather have Murty.

If our youth coach can get that level of performance out of that group of players, then image what this titan of the game can achieve. #underwhelmed

As always though, full backing will be given by myself, and many many others, I have no doubt.

I know he's not everyone's cup of tea, but what about Tav. He has been the one who has supplied an awful lot of balls that have turned into goals for us this season.
I would like to think there is a space for him as (yes he could do better defensively) I feel he brings something to the party.

I said something similar in another post regarding the card only you explained it more thoroughly. I don't think there was any intent at all on jack's part.

It wasn't a tackle, Jack cleared the ball and at the point where he was following through the ball yer man put his leg in the way. It was an odd one and my initial reaction was not a red card offence because of what I've just said. However, it was as you say, a leg breaker, and for that reason, and to stop players from playing a ball in that manner, then I feel a red card was justified.

I'm not looking at it through blue specs, just from a footballing perspective, before any of you start!
My opinion may be wrong and not everyone's cup of tea but it is only an opinion.

Lol. Welcome big Marv. Just read your other post there, very sensible, a trait some find ludicrous on here. Anyway, I look forward to reading your future posts.

Got cramp in my thumb from scrolling there Andy!
I'm in the middle of an essay and I haven't written that much.
Good to read a passionate post though from someone who clearly cares and has thought about it.
