Billy Davies on the short list for the Blackburn job all I can say is venkeys please take him asap and kill off these roumers of him coming to us!
1.) 21 Feb 2017 23:50:53
Why the negetive comments about about bill Davies his record in the championship is pretty good had teams in playoffs saved teams from dropping down a league although not my 1st pick he probably could do a job can't see us getting a top drawer appointment due to financial restraints so why not might do well for us.
2.) 22 Feb 2017 06:25:22
Mark Warburton also had a good record in the championship.
3.) 22 Feb 2017 07:27:24
Yeah but Davies did better than Warburton in the spl, considering the budgets and players
4.) 23 Feb 2017 06:51:42
Listen kevin1984,mark warburton has nowhere near the experience of billy davies! Warbs managed one club in brentford, whereas davies done well with PNE, derby county and notts forest twice! Says it all my friend! I just wish folk would check wee billy davies's managerial record out, before they come on here spouting this and that about the guy!

we should get mcinnes in for a couple of year to get us better than the rest and once the contracts with the fat rat run out 0r once we get them ripped up then we can get a top manager and give him some kind of spending money
15 Mar 2017 20:21:13
Im fed up of all these pundits and journalists saying about Dave king should sell up it's a joke! What are these guy on about Sell up to who? Anyone with money who wanted to buy are club have had plenty of chances over the years but the fact is nobody has stepped up apart from Dave king and tbh we are in a much better place now than we were when he took control and we are going in the right direction and it's clear king and co have rangers best interest at heart. Think some people have been deluded by this 30million war cheast when tbh king stated I could take 30million to get the club back on track but he never said the very first summer I'm going to spend the whole 30millon on players all in one go did he! It's about steady investment over a few years. Just remember He managed to get the club out of Ashley clutches when we were in deep trouble and is still trying to sort out the retail side of things. i dread to think we're we would be if he never took control people need to cut him some slack seriously and on another note I think he will be happy to sell if it was to someone who is willing to take the club forward but untill then we are at least in safe hands With him.

Well said mate
2.) 15 Mar 2017 22:10:12
Too many supposed to be rangers fans wanting to bring people down do you want ashley or king ano who i want get a grip can't stand these so called supporters spouting pixx get a grip and be happy that we are in hands of rangers men not ones that want to bleed us dry x
3.) 15 Mar 2017 23:05:17
Completely agree but also understand why a lot of fans feel the way they do given how things have been over the last 5-10 years. Once ashley is gone and a few of the other cases etc are resolved the club will be in a position to grow again
4.) 16 Mar 2017 20:40:14
Saw the first couple of training sessions with Pedro and main emphasis is on pressing opponents and only taking 2 touches before passing. Good to see.
5.) 16 Mar 2017 19:24:32
put this another way if at next season at this point we are this number of points behind celtic with david king investing verry little money like this season.
Do you still think investers and fans will stick by him then and not blame him.
the pundits and the fans no this is a big summer for the board and for this we require a big investment on players this summer to close gap on celtic so will be intresting to see if this happens.

Deano on March 5th 2015 Dave King promised "Absolute honesty and transparency. " Do you think he gave that to the shareholders with his failure to admit he was part of a concert party? Do you think he did that when he failed to make an attempt to buy all of the shareholding?
Do you think he did that when he attempted to hide the share ownership in companies in the Virgin Islands and Guernsey amongst other places? Do you think he did that when he made it difficult for TAB to establish the share ownership?
A lot of you seemed to be seduced by his claims of honesty transparency but when push comes to shove, a good number of you just back the regime, time after time after time, crook after crook after crook. Your pleas of "what can we do? " ring hollow when you support him in posts like that and more importantly when you back them time after time at AGM's.
Yes that is exactly where you can say "No you haven't came close to living up to your pledges. " Your on what, your SIXTH dodgy CEO in a row maybe? If you don't learn now you never will and to be honest hell mend you if you can't actually see King for what he is. Why don't you just trade in "the teddy bears" for the three monkeys? See No Evil, Hear No Evil and Speak No Evil, It's seems far more fitting.

i think king will suprise a few people this this summer and sepnd the money we need to get back to europe and the top of the spl .
im not saying its all coming from his own pocket but i think he will get the money from somewhere as i believe he is a very smart guy with a few tricks up his sleeve
27 Feb 2017 20:31:14
So there saying a manager could be installed before the Celtic game, but is that a temp or is that going to be the permanent one?
1.) 28 Feb 2017 13:11:50
They didn't say which celtic Game!
25 Feb 2017 11:03:20
I used to say a lot of teams tend to sit in and make it hard for us to break them down and sort of make that a defence for are players at times and I used to think if a team would just open up that's when are system could work if they open up we should carve them wide open but last night proved to me that that never even made any difference as Inverness were open and we were going toe to toe with them for most of the game and they were better then us. For us same old story get around the box and no end product no final ball but yet every time they broke they looked as if they could score. This bunch of players are just not good enough at all.
1.) 25 Feb 2017 11:32:06
I thought the exact same thing, "if we weren't playing against 10 defenders then we'd destroy some teams! ".
Unfortunately I was very wrong to think that, I don't even see how the team can regress so far in such a short space of time?
We looked a fit, hungry team last season with a point to prove and now we look like second rate journey men who struggle with the length of a pitch.
19 Feb 2017 22:13:36
Just had another look at the starting 11 today and the teams we signed these players from are 3 from a league 1 at the time wigan then 1 from league 1 mk dons another from league 1 Bradford and another from league 1 Swindon town and don't think most of those clubs were at all bothered about these guys leaving says it all. then from championship Plymouth and qpr were hill and garner were not even getting Game at the time. Not to mention forrister not getting a game at Doncaster and holt same problem at hearts then crooks and widass from Accrington stanly how on earth did we exspect this bunch of duds to ever do anything and the worst thing is there all on whopping big deals between 2 and 3years left for most of them and prob earning more money than they would get anywhere else this is really worrying.
1.) 20 Feb 2017 16:43:27
This is an incredibly valid point and one I made privately to my friends at the beginning of the season. Simply put, the expectation level placed on players who are frankly from mediocre backgrounds is completely misplaced. The players were signed by Warburton and while they were good enough for the Scottish championship, how could we realistically expect a bunch of English league 1 level players who couldn't even get a game for their clubs at the time to compete with Celtic in the league. I saw this coming although I had hoped that there was some hidden talent with them all that Warburton saw that we as fans couldn't. Even Windass who seems to be quite popular amongst our support is pretty poor and while he has the odd moment of setting up a chance, his overall contribution like the rest in the squad is pretty dire. I'm currently feeling very despondent at the situation we find ourselves in and it speaks volumes against those players we signed when Barrie McKay, a product of a shoddy youth system and ignored to the point that he was almost released until Warburton happened to give him a shot, is better than the lot of them. When we played Hearts, I remember looking through their squad and picking out all the players I would take from them in a heartbeat to replace the mediocrity we currently have. Would take Paterson instead of Tavernier, Souttar instead of Kiernan (heck I'd take a traffic cone instead of Kiernan), Kitchen as our DM, Cowie in place of Halliday, Walker instead of waghorn, Johnson instead of Garner, even Hamilton instead of foddy. Even Nicholson when he came on looked impressive and all that is just from ONE team. Warburton has went to England and cherry picked mediocre players from a terrible league (I will never buy that league one is a better standard than SPL as I believe Celtic, Aberdeen and hearts would beat those teams with most of their players being English championship level imo) . The lack of passion in our team is down to these guys. They are league 1 level for a reason, they never strived to be the best, to be winners, to be Rangers quality.
2.) 20 Feb 2017 17:43:17
It's absolutely shocking that we extended most of their contracts before even testing them out in the premier league first yet again we will be left with most of these duds till their contracts run down, this is a worse feeling than when we were in the bottom tier
14 Feb 2017 22:26:06
just been looking at are players contracts why on earth were we so hasty at giving some of these players new deals before we even seen how they will perform in the prem. for excample kiernen was offered new deal last summer then all this talk with tav and waghorns deals why was forrester deal so big and Halliday and holt signed new 3year deals they are under contract until 2020 what a joke it's clear as day they are not good enough for us in the prem let alone taking us to the next level where we should be by 2020 they will be way out there depths. This now makes it hard for new manager coming in who will want to shift some of this lot but it will be hard getting rid of them they have no sell on value what so ever. For a club that seems very slow getting things done at times why were we so hasty in signing these lot up.
1.) 14 Feb 2017 23:01:30
Hop Along Hopless Halliday no surly not, he's terrible and can't even sing
2.) 14 Feb 2017 23:23:13
Reckon we could get a couple hundred thousand for most of our duds which would probably get us back our money. I think we need to get behind them though because there's plenty of games still to play n maybe diffrent coaches and style could suit some
3.) 15 Feb 2017 03:06:50
That is pretty frightening actually because they will also be on good wages and that will make them difficult to shift!
A new manager might be able to improve Forrester and I wouldn't rule out us being able to sell Kiernan to an English Club and Waghorn has not yet signed a new contract. Tavernier could definitely improve with proper coaching. As for Halliday, we can only hope that he suddenly remembers that he playing for the team he supports and might actually give 100% for more than 30 minutes going forward. Quite frightening really although on the positive side Senderos and Hill finish at the end of the season.
20 Mar 2017 20:37:19
Think there is a good chance we could loan him for the season next season. eddie Howe has got to be happy with what he is doing just now so as he is still a young guy I think there is a very good chance they will loan him again for one more full Season would benefit him loads then after that he would be better placed to go play in the EPL
18 Mar 2017 20:49:31
people going on like hodson is this class player and how is he not playing over tav? The reason is over all tav is a much better all round player and has a lot more to offer. People sounding like we have a Salgado in his peak on the bench and we are playing tav over him it's lee hodson and he really not that good he can come in and do a job when asked yes but if he played week in week out he would not be good enough.
12 Mar 2017 02:28:31
Would be hard I think he has 3years left on his contract and he is there best player and top scorer and there a club with money So will not need to sell or won't on the cheap. so think he could be out of our price range. The only way possible is if we show interest and vlad kicks up a fuss about wanting to leave like payet did but other than that I can't see it happening.
11 Mar 2017 23:00:38
Haha espekay think people are just on the wind up with the disagrees lol
10 Mar 2017 21:29:56
Who do you want to see rick? As I think he is by far the most exciting out of the names mentioned mcliesh, Davis, McGinnis, wright, Gary rowett no thanks for all of them tbh all Shiite. I'm excited with this guy yes there is a chance it could all go wrong but if you don't take a chance you never succeed for me going with any of the names above is like saying we are happy to stay were we are.
23 Mar 2017 17:43:24
Great news as I think I heard Ashley is costing us something like 9million a year from the retail. So if could get that sorted and with European football coming next season onwards we are in pretty good shape. Don't understand all the people who slate king and the bored tho of course I would like to see bigger investment on the playing side but we haft to be patient and in two years I think king and co have done a great job considering the mess we were in when they took over.
22 Mar 2017 18:18:57
Aluko and Davis
22 Mar 2017 11:40:51
no reason we couldn't get 3million this is the over priced English championship after all remember. It just depends on how much they want him and if we are willing to hold out for best offer. if Ross McCormack is worth 12million and jorden Rhodes is worth 9million and even mat Richie at 12million waggy would be seen as good business at 3millon to that lot down there.
21 Mar 2017 22:00:26
For me It depends on the money we get offered for him anything between 1 and 2million I would sell him
21 Mar 2017 13:50:51
Patterson mcginn and Cummings we are trying to mount a challenge to Celtic to once again win league title and complete in Europe that lot are miles away from being good enough. It's the same when I hear Sam nickelson jonny hays Crawford and even have tommy wright as manager come on that is all just average domestic shite we should be casting the net loads further and bringing in a lot better quality than that and I think Pedro knows this hence why we will not be in for any of that lot in the summer thank god.
