Bunch of rumours that keep popping up and refuse to go away.

Most aren't realistic, some are just plain stupid, no idea why people keep posting about some of them.

Davis
Solanke
Rooney (No idea why he keeps popping up)
Jordan Jones
Skrtel
McCrorie
MacLeod
Weiss
Defoe
Naismith
Shankland

Out of that list and not living in la la land thinking we'll get Rooney, I'd be happy with Davis for a season or two and possibly Solanke on loan but with the rest I'd rather we avoided or I'm pretty much neutral on except Naismith, even though he's done a good job wherever he's went since leaving us. I still can't forgive the little rat.

What's your opinions on this rogues gallery?

F-U

1.) 17 Nov 2018 14:36:54
Also, I'm against Skrtel joining us, he's a quality, experienced, solid defender but considering his age and his wage demands I'm happy with what we have at CB, I'd much prefer we invest in a creative midfielder.


2.) 17 Nov 2018 14:42:34
Maybe I'm being slow but why is McCrorie on a list of incomings when he's already our player?


3.) 17 Nov 2018 15:10:26
My mistake, that's supposed to be Rhys McCabe.

His name pops up once in a blue moon, no idea why I typed McCrorie haha.


4.) 17 Nov 2018 16:50:46
I'd love to see Defoe here.


5.) 17 Nov 2018 18:48:37
Mcburnie? Another name that always pops up.


6.) 17 Nov 2018 22:06:37
Defoe would be a great signing for us, wages would be the stumbling block i would imagine.


7.) 17 Nov 2018 22:23:12
I'm torn on Defoe, he's a fantastic goalscorer there's no doubt but considering he'll be a squad player not exactly the first name on the teamsheet, would require a high wage and of course his age, I'd much rather we invested in a younger player.

One of these days. maybe in the summer, maybe the summer after that, if Morelos keeps playing well and scoring he's going to be on the way out for a good chunk of change and we need to groom another younger lad to take over from him whenever that happens, it's far cheaper to bring in someone young with a bit of potential and ease them in than buy a first teamer and that goes double with strikers, good strikers are hard to find when you don't have a ton of money to spend.

But on the other side of things, Morelos could learn a lot from Defoe about his runs and positioning so in that sense. maybe on a 1 year deal. he could be worth it.

Morelos is a really good striker but he's still young, impetuous and reactionary, training with a guy like Defoe could bring him up to another level.


8.) 17 Nov 2018 23:23:06
Nobody has mentioned McCabe the boy is a total failure playing at slygo. I think I'm one of the only people mentioning Macleod because he's going out of contract. Few people mention Rooney and nobody mentions Defoe or naismith anymore and Mcburnie said he will play for us one day. Solanke just made available for loan as well by Liverpool and Jordan Jones is a known rangers fan. Your mentioned incoming list isn't particularly accurate.


9.) 17 Nov 2018 23:51:36
Nonsense. Weiss lol.


10.) 18 Nov 2018 03:31:03
Tjrfc.

Read my post, it isn't an "incoming list" it's a list of rumours I've seen semi regularly on here and other gers forums and every single name was picked out from gers forum rumour posts over the last week.

I'd cite my sources but too much damn work and I can't post links here.


11.) 18 Nov 2018 04:29:27
Seeing all these rumours ie dallas. Main player rangers need is a davis type player. We dnt need wingers.


12.) 18 Nov 2018 05:19:16
What we really need is to bring back Salim Kerkar.

He's only 31, still some quality left in these legs yet!


13.) 18 Nov 2018 07:47:01
F-U have you been on the Davie Weir all night!


14.) 18 Nov 2018 12:16:15
Read my post then i didn't say it was an incoming list, I said it wad a list of mentioned players that could come in, "mentioned incoming list".


15.) 18 Nov 2018 13:16:29
McLeod - yes. Impressed during first spell and we'd get a more complete player this time round imo.

Defoe - no. No doubt he'd score goals but we need a striker who'll rotate or play alongside Alfredo for years to come, short term fix doesn't appeal to me.

Solankie - unsure. Same as Defoe, need some stability going forward. If we can structure an 18 month loan deal like Celtic have done recently with Chelsea and City then I'd be happy with that.

Davis - yes. No brainer.

Surely our scouting team are working hard to establish targets for the boss in January and I'm sure there will be new names linked in time, possibly from Europe given the crazy market down south.


16.) 18 Nov 2018 15:28:05
Think some of them have been made up.

McCabe is mince and didn't cut it in a league way below ours, wouldn't make it at any club in the Prem.

Rooney - whoever made this up is taking the mickey.

Defoe - No chance.

Skrtel - no chance.

Weiss - Would be surprised but not as wild as the aforementioned.

Shankland - Not good enough. Not even nearly good enough actually.


Solanke - he is deceivingly mince.

Naismith - Would be shocked.

MacLeod - don't think that's a real rumour.

Jones - Maybe if Kent isn't staying.


17.) 18 Nov 2018 20:02:55
McCabe - Agreed.

Rooney - Also Agreed, I hope the ones pushing this share whatever drugs they're on.

Defoe - I'd say there's a small chance but it's not something I'm bothered about.

Skrtel - Again, small chance but too old, too expensive, no sell on and we have enough CB's.

Weiss - I have no idea how he's been the past few years so no comment really.

Shankland - Too old to be a quality youngster and not good enough just not even as a squad player.

Solanke - I don't know much about the guy so no comment.

Naismith - **** that little rat.

MacLeod - Been consistently injured the past few years but was good with us a few years back, would give him a chance at least if we could get him at a decent price.

Jones - Good player but badly needs to work on his workrate and defensive game if he's to work out for us.


18.) 19 Nov 2018 04:11:49
F-U . how Is Shankland too old he’s 23, and he’s not good enough to even be a squad player, he’s scored 35 goals in 38 games in the championship, who else in our squad ( except possibly Morelos ) would score anywhere near that amount in that league? I agree he’s not probably going to come in and do the business in Europe, but a player like that could do a job when wer short on options up front like against Aberdeen when we were forced to play that donkey sadiq.


19.) 19 Nov 2018 04:36:41
Even Morelos probably wouldn't score that much in the championship, hell, Shankland wouldn't score that much in the championship with the Rangers team behind him.

We play a lone striker who's main job is to close down, run into channels, hold up the ball, bully defenders and play in other players while also chipping in with goals.

Shankland is a straight up goalscorer but wouldn't be able to keep up with the rest of what we require from a front man, it's the same reason Kris Boyd was always dropped when we played 1 up top or against strong opposition.

Good goalscorer doesn't always mean a good all round player and we need a good all round player to lead the line.

Also by too old I mean he's 23,we have academy players much younger who could do a similar job without having to pay another wage.


20.) 19 Nov 2018 12:24:37
Remember nicky clark that scored a barrowload in the lower divisions? Shankland probably the same.

So, am I seeing this right?

To qualify we either need to win v Rapid Wien or draw and hope Villarreal can beat Spartak at home.

In the first instance, well. we'd be second in points so no problems there.

In the second instance our head to head with Rapid would put us above them and we'd also be ahead of them on Goal Difference (Can't remember if it's good or Head to Head that's calculated first)

Since Spartak are notoriously bad travellers, Villarreal are at home not to mention how we bossed the game against Rapid at Ibrox. I'd say we have a really damn good chance of getting through this group which is a massive step ahead of where we should be so soon after what's been effectively a rebuild job with a brand new manager.

I think most of us would have been ecstatic if at the start of the season we were told we would drop out at the group stages but to take it to the last game and have everything still in our own hands to qualify is a massive testament to what the board and Steven Gerrard has put together here in such a short time.

We should be proud of how far we've came so quickly, even if we don't manage to win the league this year we've really came so far.

Lets hope we keep it up against Hearts and get back to the top of the league where we belong.

1.) 04 Dec 2018 06:36:26
F-U Rapid have 6 points we only have 5

we must win.


2.) 04 Dec 2018 07:31:33
Only a win will do.


3.) 04 Dec 2018 10:44:47
Trev No 7

We have 6 points and both Villareal and Rapid have 7 only a win is good enough.


4.) 04 Dec 2018 16:56:45
Vilareal get beat and we draw are we not through on head to head due to 2-2 draw over there. Can't see them not winning tho tbf.


5.) 06 Dec 2018 13:35:40
Bucarest then go thru with Vienna.


 

 

18 Nov 2018 20:46:01
What do you guys think of trying out Grezda as our number 10?

He's played there before for Osijek and thinking of our frontline as Kent/ Candeias on the wings, Grezda in the middle with Morelos up front sounds like it could be pretty strong and could help out with some of the lack of creativity up front.

I'm not totally sure how it would work out but until we bring someone new in (If we do in January) it could be a decent shout and if it works out could save a chunk of cash.

F-U

1.) 18 Nov 2018 21:47:28
Was albanias best player on saturday. 2 feet quick. Good shout. Could easily play there.


2.) 18 Nov 2018 23:30:19
He hasn't quite shown the pace and directness of Candeias or Kent but seems to have good control and can finish a bit is my thinking behind it.

It's really hard to say though since we've not seen a fully fit Grezda yet and not seen enough of him to make a proper judgement but he does look like he could fit in as a 10 for us, at least for now and see what happens in January.


3.) 19 Nov 2018 03:18:56
He won't get far without 2 feet 😉.


4.) 19 Nov 2018 08:48:09
Grezda could play as our no.10, no bother F-U. He's quick, very direct and like you said, very quick with both feet! He can also make chances for his teammates, with precision passing! I would be quite happy to give him a run, in that position!


5.) 19 Nov 2018 11:49:44
He's far better than candeias, and should be playing in the wide position instead of him. We'll need to wait to see who comes in January (Davis), we've been ok with arfield in there.


6.) 19 Nov 2018 21:56:51
Candeias IMO, is very underrated at rangers mate! Him and tav have a very good partnership, on our right side! I most definitely am a fan of daniel candeias! His workrate is also immense! On his game he's a really good winger!


7.) 20 Nov 2018 06:41:27
I agree supercooper I think we miss candeias when he doesn't play. Look at St mirror away, we were really struggling looking like dropping points and candeias came on n we got a boost immediately. I think he's very underrated by our fans, loak at the percentage of our goals he is involved in.


8.) 20 Nov 2018 23:34:14
Working hard should be the minimum requirement at any level. He does do that, and his fitness level seems excellent. He's just not got the ability unfortunately. Shame, because he seems a good lad.

Been thinking about this Hampden mess with the sheep and hearts fans and I think it's purely down to money.

The SPFL is skint and it would cost more to have Hampden open for 2 days instead of one or to rent Murrayfield for a game.

Still, I'm enjoying all the conspiracy theories and whatever else surrounding it.

F-U

1.) 29 Sep 2018 08:54:08
I think the reason they couldn't use murrayfield, which to my mind is a far better stadium, but that's my opinion, is due to contractual agreements. But yeah the claims of Masons, media, sfa all planning this to happen is funny. We should just blame Donald Trump, am still convinced he had something to due with all this working the sfa like puppets.


2.) 29 Sep 2018 10:02:08
What is the problem with Hampden, to us anyway? 12 O'clock KO on a Sunday away from home for the sheep, well, welcome to our world! If the tims are playing, say motherwell away and we are playing the sheep at Ibrox 3 O'clock KOs then the same potential exists for three sets of fans to be in the city center at the same time. All we have to do is behave. We will be out of Hampden at worst 3 1/ 4 hours before Hearts are due.
P. S. I'm willing to bet our game does not go to extra time!


3.) 29 Sep 2018 10:10:11
I find it funny that our game against Aberdeen that was drawn second to be played on the Sunday hasn't been moved! Celtic and hearts have! So I ask why should their game take the place of ours? I'm quite sure if it was us being asked to play second we would be hearing from a select few from the dark side that we should just get on with it! And stop moaning! Well guess what my advice is?


4.) 29 Sep 2018 10:21:00
Calm down Timmy.


5.) 29 Sep 2018 11:50:55
If this decision had to be taken 2 month ago I bet you queens park wouldn't have agreed to such a stupid decision. Sfa now own Hampden and there first hard decision is a complete shambles. Makes it worst hearts play celtic only 10days later in league. Could easily have swapped the 2 games.


6.) 29 Sep 2018 15:36:35
C. f. bear that's exactly what hearts have asked for! But personally I think the spfl have done the usual mess of things! Making a mockery of the game north of the border.


7.) 29 Sep 2018 20:33:58
I Can’t be the only bear to be embarrassed by the moaning from all concerned, we will take on any team, anytime, anyplace. Ask Lawell what suits them best and we will see them in the final! 😉.


 

 

23 Aug 2018 06:44:36
Took it's time but we eventually got Lafferty.

I have some mixed feelings about the guy but generally I think he'll be good for us in the short term, the market for forward players is awful just now anyone even half decent is going for silly money so to get Lafferty for 450k is a good bit of business and plugs a gap for a year or two and gives us a couple of years to get someone younger and better through the door.

A lot of fans are clamouring for Middleton to play more often but I think Gerrard is doing the right thing just now, over the years we've had a lot of good young players like fleck, McCormack, Burke and so on who get into the team at a young age and start off really well then seem to burn out and eventually move on, sometimes they do well after leaving sometimes not but I think it's better we introduce our youngsters slowly over time instead of just throwing them in to see if they make it or not.

This is a bit of an early morning rambling post so I'll shut up now, can't wait to beat that Russian mob then beat motherwell at the weekend.

Let's go!

Stuffy and boring game so far, exactly what we needed to do.

Last thing we wanted is attacking end to end football, it's not fun to watch but we're doing the job and 0-0 at half time is great so far.

Here's hoping we can sneak one ourselves but any result that gets us through is good enough for me, Maribor look considerably better than Ufa so if we can get past this we have a great chance of getting to the group stage.

Lets go!

F-U

1.) 16 Aug 2018 21:34:37
Definitely not one for the highlight reel.

However we are through against a side that although not the biggest name we could have drawn, were still a dangerous outfit.

Would be nice to have someone more creative in the midfield though, maybe it's just me but I can't really see what Ejaria is actually bringing to the side.

Big picture, things have been so much better than we've expected especially when it comes to Europe.

The Aberdeen game was awful, we had absolutely no creativity or cutting edge but that's just one game and I have full trust in our management to fix things whether that's with a transfer or two in January, a change of shape, a change of personnel within our squad or simply just kicking some arses for such a poor performance.

I have no doubts we'll come out and make a point against Dundee at the weekend.

Lets keep this simple, shall we?

Gazza said he didn't do it.

It happened on a train.

Trains have CCTV.

We'll know for sure soon.

95% conviction rate for sexual assault is a blatantly false statistic and even if it were true it doesn't take away being innocent until proven guilty.

When it comes to this case, let's not pretend we know what's going on, none of us have a clue, just let things play out with the police, this really isn't something we should have a debate over.

I'd say it's partly to do with a lack of decent indoor/ outdoor facilities and partly to do with lack of quality coaching.

We still produce players with good potential but they almost never realize their potential unless they go down south early (Billy Gilmour) or are purely trained in England (Scott McTominay) it's incredibly rare for a player trained in Scotland to go to a high level club like Andrew Robertson and. er. I think that's about it in recent years.

Basically, facilities and coaching in England is 2018 and facilities and training in Scotland is 1990 if we're lucky.

Hopefully with guys like Gerrard and even Rodgers who have a lot of experience down south can help change that but there's no way to know for the next few years.

I used to love Scotland, went to whatever games I was able to and followed them the best I could.

I don't speak for most I'm sure but for me I started falling out of love with the national team after Walter Smith, with so many clueless performances, awful manager appointments, depressing tactics, uncaring players and awful results against lesser teams I just gave up with it.

I'm not going to lie, the SFA being as pathetic as they are hasn't exactly helped either, I know the national team isn't just the SFA but it's hard for me to separate the two.

I watched the second half of the game today and I'm happy we won and I'd like us to qualify of course but I won't be going out of my way to watch them, I'll watch on telly if I have nothing better to do, that's about the extent of my passion for Scottish international football these days.

Also some "fans" booing Ryan Jack recently and Ian Black before that just ended up reinforcing my apathy for supporting Scotland.
