Mark Warburton confident of 3 more signings by the end of the week. I'd imagine Krancjar, Mariappa and either Vaughan or Bradshaw. Says he thinks we need 4 players in. Add a goalkeeper, (McGovern perhaps) to this and I'm absolutely delighted with the way the squad is shaping up.

LifelongGer

1.) 21 Jun 2016 22:19:56
So that's now 74 players you are signing at a cost of £96m that's great pmsfl.


2.) 21 Jun 2016 22:37:17
What happened to the Will Grigg rumour? If prefer to see him or Bradshaw to James Vaughan.

Happy with Windass, Crooks, Rossiter, Barton, Hill and the defender from Jamaica. Who is our cover for Wallace?


3.) 21 Jun 2016 23:05:41
I think hodson has been linked and can play both fullback positions. 3 close and 4 wanted but that was on top of kranjkar, so i'd say mariapa hodson and a st. Not sure about vaughan and bradshaws went quiet, think it might be a surprise maybe on loan and mcgovern after the euros.


4.) 21 Jun 2016 23:12:05
If Mariappa comes in I'm sure he can play across the whole back four if needed.


5.) 21 Jun 2016 23:08:05
Oh and glory hibs you obviously no nothing because if we signed all them plus what we have signed under mw so far itl be less than 2.5mill. Not bad eh?


6.) 21 Jun 2016 23:22:03
Glorhibs are you actually joking what's glorious about hibs bad enough the unwashed from East end on here now you's are crawling about back under yer rock.


7.) 21 Jun 2016 23:28:32
Haliday can play left back Teddy.


8.) 22 Jun 2016 00:26:10
Not enough height in the back line.


9.) 22 Jun 2016 01:30:11
Halliday is our cover at left back.


10.) 22 Jun 2016 00:27:56
Hibs boy who you signed? Neil Lennon? Absolutely brilliant to notch challenging for the premiership next year when Cummings and mcginn leave and Lennon gets found out to be a rubbish manager.


11.) 22 Jun 2016 01:53:57
Clint Hill also plays CB, LCB in a back 3, or LB. He will be our cover. And IF we sign Mariappa, he will be cover for right back as well!


12.) 22 Jun 2016 09:16:13
74 players for 96 million! sounds as if our Leith counterpart has got nothing to look at on his own clubs page so has to come on to our page and spout constant drivel!


13.) 22 Jun 2016 09:27:22
Wearerangers makes a very good point. Height in our back line is a major issue. We couldn't defend properly against high balls last season and now we are signing 5'10 centre backs? I am happy with the way things are going just now with regards to recruitment but this deffinelty has me questioning MW defensive side of his tactics.


 

 

29 Apr 2016 23:39:22
I believe we are interested in Hamilton Accies midfielder Greg Docherty. 19 years old and has featured this season. Was motm in the recent u20 game against us which MW attended. This is a player for the medium term and I am told there is strong interest. Not that it changes anything but he's also a huge Rangers fan.

LifelongGer

1.) 30 Apr 2016 07:44:38
I can assure you he certainly is not a Rangers fan.


2.) 30 Apr 2016 10:06:56
Can you?


3.) 30 Apr 2016 19:48:18
Alby1212, i can assure you he certainly isn't as he was in the year above me at school, season ticket holder and staunch blue nose. I'm intrigued as to why you would make such an assured accusation when you clearly aren't assured.


4.) 30 Apr 2016 23:34:15
I played in Greg's team at Accies, he most definitely is a Rangers fan. Also would be a good signing, fantastic drive and ability on the ball.

Horrible today. Just back from Hampden and still numb. No pass marks from anyone in the squad. Cummings was a waste of time if we can't play him. I don't want Murty sacked but I want him immediately removed from first team duties and revert to where he was. He can then decide if he wants to stay. The Board must speak to the fans and tell us what they can if they want all the renewals. I'll absolutely renew but not until I've heard some sort of plan. Hate saying it but well done to Celtic. They were miles ahead of us in every position and turned up wanting to win whereas we looked scared. Major clear out required again and back to square one. Very sore one to take today.

Was at the game today. Cannot see what Windass brings to the team. We need guys who will fight for 90 minutes. Alves is only interested in a back pass to the goalkeeper. Martin too shaky and shouldn't be retained. Morelos did well holding the ball up but is immature in his decision making typified with his snatch at goal in the late stages when he could have set up Cummings. Good to see Dorrans back and McCrorie close. Disappointed to see us bullied again. For me, Pena, Herrera, Windass, Alves, Martin, Halliday, Wallace, Dalcio, Rossiter, Miller, Hodson are the leavers wherever we can. Those out of contract, loaners or sellable must leave. Morelos can go for anything north of £4m given we paid £1m and owe a 10% sell on to his former club. I have no insider rumours on who should come in but I'd like Cummings and Murphy confirmed asap and bring in two first team ready Central Defenders, a proven striker and another player capable of playing behind a front two. We can make huge savings by getting rid of the above and look at bringing through some of the youth with a couple of proven players. Now is the time to look at Barjonas, Hardie, Wilson, Atakayi and so on with decisions on whether to keep/ sell/ loan. As for the manager, it isn't Murty but neither is it De Boer. Other than Clarke, I can't think of a realistic, affordable alternative and we've had too many false dawns. Just my thoughts as a frustrated fan. Thoughts welcomed.

Oh and Cardoso can go too!


2.) 31 Mar 2018 22:21:31
Lifelonger, so 11 can go? Where do Rangers get the money to replace them?


3.) 01 Apr 2018 00:13:13
Halliday, Wallace and maybe even Rossiter will still be here next season as we require a whole squad of players and can't buy 7 or 8 as well as the likes of Murphy and Cummings. Hardie is now playing at his level, while Florida in January showed Atakayi isn't close to the first team yet. Barjonas isn't progressing the way we had hoped and neither is Beerman, but this lad Middleton looks like he could step up. As for the next manager, it could well be de Boer, according to a former player, a Dutch player I know, who reckons he's already been approached and was also approached before the McInnes fiasco, but didn't want to start in the middle of a season. Rumours? Of course, that's what people talking to people brings. Oh, and as for Alves, two thirds of his passes today went forward (watch it) and he was also trying to cover for an awful partner in Martin. Wasn't the worst by a long chalk, that's Windass despite what the stats 'experts' might say. He's just rotten.


4.) 01 Apr 2018 00:19:56
We can generate some transfer fees. We can also make significant wage savings. We can also promote some youths who must be better going by everything I read on here. 3 or 4 in supplemented by our top youngsters like Middleton, Atakayi and so forth. We won’t miss Wallace, Pena, Herrera, Dalcio, Alves or Hodson. We have McCrorie, Jack, Dorrans incoming. Simply my opinion.


5.) 01 Apr 2018 00:43:18
Lifelonger. jesus wept. Barjonas, Hardie, Wilson, Atakayi are you on the gin? Seriously that is far from the answer!


6.) 01 Apr 2018 10:18:00
Not saying it’s the answer however we either play these guys or they’re not good enough and they go. I’ve not seen anything from them to suggest they are or aren’t good enough but why retain them if not? I’ve given a fairly lengthy opinion. You don’t need to agree. But as usual on this ‘forum’, very few people offer realistic solutions, instead sticking in ridiculous “I’m hearing xxx” or otherwise. My point is that we need to clear more dross, buy first whatever team ready players we can afford and supplement the squad with the best prospects we have. I don’t think that’s particularly far fetched but I’m keen to hear your solution. Happy Easter.

Great to start with a win. Still only game 2 and could've been more. Need better performance at the back. Thought Kranjcar and Windass looked great, well played Tav and Waggy. MOH better going forward. Early days and still half a team to come in and maybe a couple more signings. Great to stuff an SPL team without too much effort. Before anyone starts moaning, go back 24 months when we had Moshni, Black and the like. We are going one way; forwards.

1.) 16 Jul 2016 18:24:58
Would love to debate the disagree.


2.) 16 Jul 2016 19:36:44
Not me I completely agree although thought Tav was exposed early doors.


3.) 16 Jul 2016 23:36:51
Kranjcar spraying the ball around with that space like a Hoddle in his prime.


 

 

07 Jul 2016 11:10:23
Although I love the idea of Auchenhowie being named as The Davie Cooper Academy or similar, are we not missing a trick by not looking for a sponsor for the training centre? At least that would be a commercial contract we would have ownership of and ability to manage?

LifelongGer

1.) 07 Jul 2016 11:39:56
Totally agree.


2.) 07 Jul 2016 11:55:30
didn't think of that! give mr king a call please let him know!
I am serious give the man a bell and say to him get emerites to sponsor it! lol.


3.) 07 Jul 2016 12:08:20
wouldn't mind if we sold it to a sponsor although the davie Cooper academy has a nice ring to it.


4.) 07 Jul 2016 12:41:53
Why would anyone want to sponsor a training ground?

Companies sponsor stadiums because they are on TV regularly, so get reach to customers through the deal. However, this is not true of training grounds.

Perhaps this is the reason King and Co have not yet considered trying to get a sponsor.


5.) 07 Jul 2016 13:23:44
Aon sponsor man utds training ground so why would others not want to do the same?


6.) 07 Jul 2016 13:36:31
how many times a week do we see on tv Murray Park and hear the name Murray Park? . The naming rights have a commercial value, the club should monetize and create a revenue stream.


7.) 07 Jul 2016 15:29:32
I have made contact. It is commercially viable for the right brand and value. Murray Park is currently synonymous with the training facility, correctly done it could be known as something commercially appropriate going forwards. Personally, I'd like to see this happening.


8.) 07 Jul 2016 17:26:30
Man utd are totally different, the company sponsors cover everything yo do with them, I said months ago mp should be renamed after Greigy or Coop, or both, and don't forget big colin Jackson, the original and real Bomber.


9.) 08 Jul 2016 01:17:41
I can't agree with selling off everything just to make some more cash. The academy should be sacred. What does it say to the young players other than 'its all about money'? It should be the Davie cooper academy. A name that shows them the history and inspires them.


 

 

14 Jun 2016 20:44:58
Do people understand that the transfer window hasn't actually opened yet and considered that perhaps we have signed all the released players we intend today the moment? Or as someone else has sensibly suggested, perhaps the other targets are in a tournament environment right now?

LifelongGer

1.) 14 Jun 2016 21:04:27
Thing is mate, it has opened.


2.) 15 Jun 2016 00:56:18
Has it not been opened for like a week now or there about lifelongGer there's this invention called the internet and on it I'll whisper this bit "Google" just type in there Scottish transfer window 2016-2017 it tell you lots, chop chop son.


3.) 15 Jun 2016 05:36:27
U can only sign players from Scotland at the moment the window for the rest opens 1st July.


4.) 15 Jun 2016 08:12:47
Guys the Scottish window has opened. However nothing is stopping us from entering negotiations.


5.) 15 Jun 2016 09:36:54
only the Scottish window* is what that should say guys.


6.) 14 Jun 2016 22:27:34
I'm just glad the club can now keep the business in house with no one leaking anything.

I think that’s how it works. It goes to an agency company who manufacture and then a brand added, presumably for a fee. Most kits made in the Far East/ Asia regardless but Nike Adidas have both greater buying power and minimum orders which may put clubs/ retailers off. I’m told Umbro will be the likely badge on a kit made by someone else. Seemingly happens a lot but not with Nike, Adidas etc who are the market leaders for quality and so on.

I have a pretty direct source on this. From what I was told, it’s a licensing deal with the kits being made by a third party and badged up as Umbro. It’s not a case of Nike or Adidas signing up to provide kit, more complicated than that apparently. definitely looks like an Umbro branded top though. Some of them were decent before and if we get a better commercial deal and associated income then fine by me. Selfishly, I’d love a Nike kit but that’s just my brand loyalty as a runner!

Thanks ED!

Gordo, have a word with yourself. What a ridiculous, immature comment. The whole were poor yesterday. Docherty is a young player who had a poor game and has been a little off the boil. Worse than a man down? Great supporter you are. Guys like you would be better staying away. Disgraceful.

Greyfriar, if you don’t want to renew, them don’t. If you do, do. Plenty of folk looking for two seats together. I absolutely get that it’s a huge expense and with a family etc. it’s a massive consideration and commitment. That aside, you also have to take the bad times as well as good times. I started going in the lean pre Souness years with paltry crowds and enjoyed the 9IAR success and Manchester final and Champions League runs. Being a football supporter is about lifelong commitment for me anyway. I hope you keep your tickets. But if you don’t, there will be plenty of folk who will.
