Gary75 spot on lad, bang on the button. the negativity is relentless on here
1.) 15 Jan 2017 17:34:24
Unfortunately the team and the manager invite the negativity with the performances. I think most Rangers fans that post on here give an honest assessment of where the team are and on the players. It would be great to be positive but there hasn't been much to be positive about
2.) 15 Jan 2017 18:23:21
We're nearer to Partick Thistle in the SPFL than we are to Celtic and you don't see why fans are being negative?
Seriously, do you find that stat acceptible?
3.) 15 Jan 2017 18:56:50
Naz. Did you honestly think we would compete with them this year. With the differences in budgets. If you did you are deluded
4.) 15 Jan 2017 19:04:49
The 2 new lads looked useful today. Thought Torel scored a good goal and Hyndman looked to have a killer pass in him. Would like to see Dodoo playing, Waggy tries hard and will be an important player on second half of season but lacks quality.
5.) 15 Jan 2017 19:27:11
Warburton has had a far greater war chest than McInnes at Aberdeen yet we are no better than they are. He has signed around 22 players since becoming manager yet we don't seem to be improving and I don't see anything being built. Yeah we don't have the money Celtic do but to be 19 points behind having played a game more is unacceptable. The team concedes to easily, lacks creativity and doesn't score enough goals. It's a shambles and the manager has to shoulder the responsibility for this
6.) 15 Jan 2017 19:49:13
Swany9 No I said on here I thought we would finish second. Which is still the case.
I'll assume that you don't know that our budget is percentage wise far nearer to Celtic's budget than Partick's so I'll ask again, do you think having a points total nearer to Partick than Celtic is acceptable?
7.) 15 Jan 2017 20:37:06
Second is our objective this year. Looking at budgets to work out how far in front or behind another team is for championship manager.
8.) 15 Jan 2017 20:38:56
Stewie 25. You don't see a difference in team since warbuton took over? 🙈
9.) 15 Jan 2017 21:13:30
Mcinness has took abefeeen backwards the past 2 year
10.) 15 Jan 2017 21:16:15
The frustration for me is with the players left on the park when substitutions were being made, players not in Leipzig and why not, and players used / not used as substitutes.
I watched Everton today and they had two youth players in their team and another youngster on the bench. They looked the part in a 4.0 victory over Manchester City.
I watched Rangers and saw one or two encouraging signs but again I was bemused by Warburton's selection / substitutions. We have a quality young player in McKay, albeit that he is not a wing back, however when Wallace is fit we will hopefully see him restored to the side with McKay then deployed as a forward. With two quality acquisitions, Toral and Hyndman why did we not play both of them from the start or at least, in the second half play Hyndman in the Holding Midfield role since that is a position where we are struggling and why was Senderos brought on when it would have been an ideal opportunity to see how the young lad from Raith Rovers would perform alongside Hill.
As for the players not included what is the situation with Rossiter and with Wallace and their respective injuries. I think it is about time we had an honest update, especially on Rossiter!
11.) 15 Jan 2017 22:07:58
What I see is a team who concedes too many, scores too few and has midfielders who don't create. Tell me what do you see?
12.) 15 Jan 2017 22:17:33
So budgets having nothing to do with it then?
13.) 16 Jan 2017 00:18:55
Stewie25, if you can't see a difference between warberton team and mccoists then you need a check mate cause it's night and day, not perfect yet but he gratful for what the man has done to completely re shape the squad in 1 and a half years
14.) 16 Jan 2017 07:20:14
Swany9, why bring up budgets only to say budgets don't matter when you're point is proven flawed by politely reminding you that we have the largest budget except Celtic?
15.) 16 Jan 2017 09:33:43
What's McCoists team got to do with it? He left 2 years ago. I'm talking about how I don't think Warburton's team has improved in the 18 months he has been in charge. We still concede too many don't score enough and don't create enough. We are poor in possession and give the ball away too easily.
Just look at the amount of goals scored and conceded in the league it's unacceptable.
16.) 16 Jan 2017 10:16:07
Just because we were in a bad place 2 years ago doesn't mean we have to accept the slight improvement on the park now. Yes, off field massive improvement in the club (thank god) but on the park its still guff, same old tactics, same old mistakes, same undroppable players that start.
17.) 16 Jan 2017 23:08:16
yes naz having that points difference you are talking about is poor but its our first time back up here and we started a lot poorer than we have been lately. celtic are too good just now I hate to say it but they are they have real quality in their side with the likes of sinclaire dembelle and that wee Patrick Roberts its frightening!
yes we all thought we would be closer to celtic and if it where the celtic of last year we would be a lot lot closer but its not and we are not we have to accept that or just be pissed off at the wrong people.
warbs isn't the guy and king isn't the guy to be annoyed at its Ashley that has our hands tied behind our back.
03 Jan 2017 20:46:26
Ron59 my thoughts exactly it's horrible the now but it will swing back always does. once/ if we get rossiter fit a think he is the man to put a bit of bite back in midfield, boy loves a challenge (as long as it doesn't injure him though😂😂)
1.) 03 Jan 2017 21:53:50
We need many more than Rossiter back to improve upon things.
2.) 03 Jan 2017 23:07:51
Rossiter will hopefully be back soon but its defence that needs sorted which was the difference against them sort the defense in January and we have a chance to finish second then challenge next season.
3.) 04 Jan 2017 00:00:38
Davie weir says that rob keirnan is good enough to play in epl. He must be some player in training cause I don't see it on matchday.
4.) 04 Jan 2017 08:08:39
He's made a few mistakes but he's just the whipping boy, it's not his fault we have only scored like 28 goals this season. Very poor in front of goal.
5.) 04 Jan 2017 08:35:26
No point in young Rossiter coming back, Halliday will just start an argument with him and the manager will side with Halliday. He is a total waste of a jersey, saw his position at risk when Barton arrived and the rest is History.
Unless there is fundamental change at the Club we will be in Celtic's shadow for many years to come and that for me is unacceptable!
6.) 04 Jan 2017 08:56:23
spot on tomusa.
7.) 04 Jan 2017 09:17:32
2 things need to happen if we are to overhaul Celtic
1. A change of manager
2. Massive investment in the team
Unfortunately neither of that will happen anytime soon.
01 Jan 2017 05:48:23
I said before the game to my sons "we better not concede from a corner again! " And low and behold the first goal was a total cluster **** from a corner. guys yes it's horrible, and yes Stephen hawking could defend better but this hysteria asking for 'heads on spikes' is a brasser!
1.) 01 Jan 2017 09:52:22
It's not hysteria a lot of fans can see that the manager isn't up to the job and want him replaced. He keeps playing the same players who make the same mistakes, his transfer policy in the summer was atrocious and to spend £1.8m on a striker who can't score was idiotic. Also remember him saying earlier on in the season that 2nd is nowhere for Rangers now it's don't judge me on the Celtic games.
2.) 01 Jan 2017 10:35:04
@djkorjat16 - totally agree. What can MW do about seasoned pros ( Wilson ) getting drawn to the ball and leaving his man in acre's of space?
I think the game also highlighted Tav's limitations as a defender but the option he gives in attack with the ball across for Miller's goal ( though some of his shooting looked as if he had the contract too demolish the roof! ) .
I thought we at least competed this time and created chances and if individual errors can be eradicated and the issues with the back 4 are addressed we will be in a better place.
I'm also not 100% convinced with Halliday either and would like to see Rossiter when fit given a chance.
3.) 01 Jan 2017 12:30:32
Who do you think it is that bought Wilson and plays him? He like the other centre halves at the club have been guilty of this since Warburton has been the manager yet they still play and we keep losing the same goals. That is down to the manager to sort and he isn't doing it.
4.) 01 Jan 2017 13:10:09
@stewie25 - as soon as the players step into the pitch it is there responsibility to carry out team orders.
What about Waghorn and Forrester's inability to see a pass and the chance to slip in team mates who were in a better position?
Do we blame Miller for not getting a draw because he hit the post?
I know it hurts because we lost again to Celtic but at least we competed and created chances.
I believe if we can cut out the individual errors, address the back 4 issues and the forwards start taking their chances then improvements in consistency in performances will come.
For being the so called worst Rangers team in history by some on here we are still easily competing for 2nd which isn't too bad for our first season back.
P. S. Aberdeen are supposed to be the best of the rest and the benchmark and they are even further behind Celtic than us!
5.) 01 Jan 2017 13:23:51
Has anybody any idea how much influence DW has on the training and tactics. He was a solid defender who organised the defence at set pieces and could read a game sublimely. Yet we lose really poor goals on a regular basis, we left their best striker unmarked at a corner and Tav posted AWOL at the winner (remember Hearts) . We sit in the West Enclosure and Keirnan had a pop at Tav after the second was scored. What has Hodson to do to keep his place in the first team?
6.) 01 Jan 2017 14:29:11
I do wonder whether Warburton made the Wilson decision or whether this one was down to Davie Weir. That apart our centre backs, with the exception of Hill, have the potential to develop, Hill has proved to be a worthy transfer especially when funds are limited.
It is in midfield and attack where our major problems lie. Halliday is not a premier league player, his passing, defending and ability to read the game are all suspect. Holt will give 100% but he is at best a squad player. Crooks has been injured since the day he signed so we have no idea of his ability and Rossiter appears to be constantly injured, (and was known to be injury prone when we signed him)! Defensively, with the untimely departure of Barton, there is no one else.
In attacking midfield the only player of any consequence is McKay and how long will we keep him for if top teams come sniffing around. When Forrester arrived I had high hopes but after a good start he is going backwards, MOH has not shown the form that he was on display at St Johnstone, is this another square peg in a round hole like Garner. Why acquire players if we are not going to play to their strengths when it is evident that we are incapable of coaching them to play a different style!
As far as attack is concerned we only appear to have Miller and garner since Waghorn plays as an auxiliary midfield player and Dodoo doesn't get game time.
In terms of home grown talent we hear good things about some of our youngsters but they are not given the opportunity. Derek Johnstone was only sixteen when he scored for us and given the lack of resources and poor quality players surely there are one or two of our young players that could do a better job!
7.) 01 Jan 2017 14:31:51
Maybe you aren't aware of this but if the same players keep making the same mistakes and don't get dropped then they will continue to make the same mistakes. These defensive errors have been a common theme throughout his tenure at the club and that is one of the reasons we are so far behind. As for your comment about Aberdeen they have played a game less than us and are only 2 points behind. I would also point out that they have a vastly inferior budget to us.
8.) 01 Jan 2017 15:19:23
Tom USA, I think halliday could do a job for us but he's spent most of his career playing wide and all of a sudden he's a defensive midfielder. We can all see he clearly isnt, he isn't a bad player just can't play the role he's being asked to perform.
9.) 01 Jan 2017 21:50:47
@stewie25 - considering most of the defence have made a mistake at one point who can he bring in?
As for the budget debate, I don't bye into it as Celtic have proven against Man City in the CL.
31 Dec 2016 18:10:11
In all honesty will always agree that Brendon Rodgers I've always respected always acts with a degree of decorum. onto the game first 25 rangers right up for it then Celtic started to show the gulf in class, last 20 in second half we got a second wind and pushed hard but also could have been put to bed on a good few occasion, not one to chastise players but tav was horrid. what can we say chaps but we have to suck it up.
1.) 31 Dec 2016 22:19:20
the problem is in midfie;d we can't match brown or armstrong or rogic and our replacemenys are allunavailable for want of beeter words.
29 Dec 2016 04:32:33
Chaps listen a played football at a decent level for 24 seasons in a row and me and ma teammates made a person of things on many an occasion. so when one does **** up"aka" kiernon come on tae **** surely we can back the boy up.
1.) 29 Dec 2016 07:15:18
Paisley lagoon centre 5 a sides isn't a decent level mate. Haha jk with you Kiernan has looked better recently but that was a howler that effectively cost us 3 points.
2.) 29 Dec 2016 16:35:17
Said it in a previous post an I'll repeat it now. Although Kiernan made the error there was a couple of things that forced him in to playing that ball.
1. Keeper shouldn't play the square ball when he can see the STJ forwards pressing us
2. Wes pass was under hit meaning Kiernan only has one pas on
3.Think it was Clint Hill that went ahead of Kiernan. He never gave him an angle to play inside
May be nit picking but either has to go long when under pressure or create angles to play the pass. Instead Kiernan had to rush and made the error.
3.) 29 Dec 2016 17:03:51
Kiernan's mistake didn't solely cost us 3pts. What about the 2 cut backs rolling along the 6 yard box with no one getting on to them. What about the constant decision making for playing the ball sideways or back to keep the ball instead of shooting or trying a decisive pass.
Everyone makes mistakes in a match, only problem with defenders or keeper is it normally results in a goal against.
I certainly don't agree with team selection and tactics of Warburton but I back them team whatever selected, why, because "They are Rangers", as are we!
26 Dec 2016 17:12:50
Aye no bother Lenny Henry. horrible banter, must try harder.
26 Dec 2016 01:55:53
Ha ha sheer panic.
12 Sep 2016 19:42:37
Spot on couldn't have said better. it will all come good, cracking post?
06 Aug 2016 15:17:42
Lee Wallace not good enough? **** me how fickle some people are, total over reaction to one result. disappointing today yes but it's more than enough to bring out 'boos brigade'. get a grip and get behind the team instead of getting a woody over moaning.
