Sorry to say bears but warburton will make one change tomorrow at a push. two he's too stubborn to change can still see halliday kiernan starting tomorrow and tav he's kept it that way all season.

Scott87

1.) 03 Feb 2017 23:01:16
To play Devil's advocate what happens if he makes wholesale changes to the areas we all want after the Hearts game and we get destroyed again? That then cannot be Warbs fault but we will all blame him.

I could care less what team gets put out as long as they show passion to bounce back after the Hearts game!


2.) 03 Feb 2017 23:04:32
If he only makes one change he willl deserve all the abuse that will come his way.


3.) 04 Feb 2017 03:45:16
Well why sign senderos, dodoo, bates, etc if your no gny give them a game. guy is clueless


4.) 04 Feb 2017 04:04:11
I would say that the majority of the support want to see Kiernan and Halliday left out. That is not wholesale changes, it is only two players and two players that have been rank rotten all season.
If we don't have someone that can be deployed in the holding role that would do a better job than Halliday then questions have to be asked as to why we allowed Crooks to go out on loan.

As for Kiernan, Warburton has a choice of three centre backs to deploy instead of him!


5.) 04 Feb 2017 10:02:28
I'm sure I remember Mark Warburton saying earlier in the season that now that we have a supposed "stronger" squad than last season it would mean if players didn't perform then they would be out of the team. Well today is his chance to prove it or maybe it was just so much guff like -the gap (non existent or enormous depending on when he said it or learning from mistakes ie the same ones over and over again) . So over to you then, Mark.


6.) 04 Feb 2017 11:59:01
what if he makes one change and we win?


7.) 04 Feb 2017 16:02:56
How many changes did he actually make today? Just one or was it 2 or 3?


8.) 05 Feb 2017 16:51:18
Two of yesterday's changes, (Halliday and Kiernan), were 100% correct and there was a marked improvement, especially in that second half. The other change was a flop since Garner failed to score despite the number of opportunities that were made. Just look at the corner count alone. A clinical striker would have scored two or three and we would have won at a canter.

I have to say that Windass would also have made a difference coming off the bench but why was he sacrificed for Halliday?

Anyone think the joey barton deal could be done but not announced till his contract officially ends with burnley is it not june 1st they end usually.

Scott87

1.) 23 May 2016 13:55:55
No cause all the other players signed on previous contracts were announced.


2.) 23 May 2016 15:57:37
His contract runs until 30/6/16 but should be able to sign pre contract. Burnley have made another offer, no word on what's in it, just hope he comes to rangers.

Does anyone else who was at the game yestarday see a team in the first half who looked like they had lost faith in the manager especially when the went 1-0 down they just seemed to give up and look lost not one player has came out at all lately and says its not the managers fault we've just not performed if that was a performance to make up for the loss to hearts as players stated during the week then a would hate to see them not trying have to say this though don't agree with fans booing the team

Scott87

1.) 05 Feb 2017 10:05:33
Scott87

I agree the first half they looked like a team that had lost faith with the manager. It was shambolic, no one wanted to take any responsibility and we were extremely lucky to go in only 1 down. Understand what your saying about the fans however all supporters boo their team at some point


2.) 05 Feb 2017 10:50:30
Agree with comments - Warburton understands fans booing but says players trying their best.

It follows something wrong - either the players aren't good enough or the manager isn't?

Not expecting to break the bank but something has to change


3.) 05 Feb 2017 12:04:34
Been reading the newspaper and glanced over the Sheep's game, when at 0-0 McInnes decided to take 2 defenders off and put on a centre forward and an attacking mid, changing system obviously in doing so bit prob something they've prepared for as most clubs would yeah. Reading it just made me shake my head, as now it wasn't anger. but just disbelief as to my own managers past decisions. Even against County it was like for like! thing is we've got to the point where we as supporters have now accepted these managerial decisions with the hope that Warbs will hear us and change this way of thinking all but gone 9.5 times out of 10 he will rotate like for like AND hour mark changes the norm. Hey don't get me wrong hour mark is a good time for changes and also an agreed time for a player if circumstances prevail etc BUT I bet a lot of the Bears booing at Ibrox were getting a lot more off their chest than the result. I would also add that when at Ibrox or watching a game on TV or even Radio its great to see your manager make a change that supporters didn't see coming or seeing the shape of the team change and talking about it during/ after especially if the change has a huge positive effect on the game and THIS is now something that I am now p***ed off at! As manager of Rangers you should be able to show supporters your abilities knowledge skill and be able to do this during games and then receive the supporters admiration i:e job well done! this part of the game has denied to us for far too long, not saying a manager makes decisions every game that totally changes it for the better BUT Warbs I feel has let us down in that department and there was prob a lot of frustration at end of County game bein let out, not just the end result of that game. Been a supporter of Warbs but now I think his stubbornness just regarding formation never mind the players he picks and were he plays them is now well fading, think we should stick with him till end of season and do think we can get 2nd


4.) 05 Feb 2017 12:13:17
I honestly believe it's the players that aren't good enough. We are creating 20+ chances in games and not scoring, that to me is the players fault. We have a player like Garner who thrives on a decent cross in the box. Not once did I see a decent ball in the box from Tav or Wallace. Miller has the positioning of a sunday league player. The fact he is being deployed in the front 3 and is never anywhere to be seen in the front 3 during the game is dire. We need investment, we were never going to come up in the first season with the signings we had made and secure 2nd easily. We need better quality, we all need to remember teams play like it's a final when they play us, so the fact we have players that are on par with Aberdeens is a massive issue.


5.) 05 Feb 2017 12:28:20
A suppose booing happens at most games why did warbs no take off senderos in the last 10 min nothing to do with his performance just using him as an example and put on dodoo and go for it a bit more at one point our passing tackling just became very lazy and the foul by toral near the end when ross county were counter attacking us should be teams doing that to us at ibrox not us to them a just don't know were we go from here honestly dont


6.) 05 Feb 2017 12:28:42
Speak for yourself stewie25! In my 42 years of going everywhere supporting rangers i can hand and heart say i've never booed a rangers team! So don't presume others do what you would term acceptable, even if you're trying to make yourself feel better because you do it!


7.) 05 Feb 2017 12:46:59
Andy: That is one of the reasons I WOULD have McInnes as manager, he will take risks and sensible ones at that, Warbs would never go for broke even at home v RC.


8.) 05 Feb 2017 13:04:06
Don't try to make it sound unacceptable SC11. The fans are perfectly within their rights to vent their frustration if they feel they are being short changed.


9.) 05 Feb 2017 12:54:11
It's not that they were not trying for the manager, you could see the fear in them after going 1-0 down, both players and manager aren't up to the job, totally underestimated this league even James tav, said he never expected it to be this hard, that says it all for me.

I think they expected it to be like last year, well they know now what it means to play for rangers, everybody wants to beat you because they all wish they were in your shoes, out with Celtic that is.


10.) 05 Feb 2017 13:10:08
Supercooper

why don't you read what I said. Fans boo their teams fro. Time to time. Are you denying this? Anyway why am I bothering to explain myself to a Warburton apologist? You are that blind you couldn't see the obvious. It's only now you see it. You are a joke just like your god Warburton. In fact you should be on here apologising to all the people you have had a go at who dared to criticise him


11.) 05 Feb 2017 14:00:14
We do not have a happy dressing room and that is reflected on the pitch. Gone are the days at Rangers when if we needed a goal to win a match a defensive player would be subbed for an attacking player. Number one priority with MW is the shape of the team must never be altered at any time. You get the opinion MW has a coaching manual (subs at 60 minutes no matter the score, play the ball out from the back, short corners a must at one time, no goals scored with headers etc. ) His style of football is one size fits all and seems incapable of taking advantage of any weaknesses our opponents may have.


12.) 05 Feb 2017 19:09:15
TBD, indeed he does have a prepared manual and sticks to it like glue. His substitutions are also predetermined (he said so himself) leaving no room for innovation, an inspired change or a chance to mix things up. He's playing Championship Manager and his experiment with our club has failed.


13.) 05 Feb 2017 21:49:50
Have u ever seen Aberdeen play? They take absolutely no risks. Against a Celtic team without a striker he sat back and employed Rudby tactics he has totally bottled it and every game against us and Celtic he plays for a draw


14.) 06 Feb 2017 00:38:25
Stewie25,I to have never at any time booed the Rangers. Why would I show hatred to the team that I love and have followed for almost 60 years


 

 

02 Feb 2017 09:40:18
A just hope warbs makes big changes on saturday for his own sake and lays the law down to some players that they simply haven't been good enough am no manager but a know u build from the back and our defense is a shambles hyndman has been a great signing but am sure that toral could have been a centre half instead of another midfielder that we have plenty of on the bench we need a big clear out in the summer and broaden our scouting system beyond scotland and england and try a 4-4-2 formation for a change on saturday

Scott87

1.) 02 Feb 2017 09:56:14
A hope the guy isn't there for Saturday honestly how can people still be backing this guy it totally amazes me honestly the guy is not good enough he needs to go


2.) 02 Feb 2017 09:56:52
i agree that we need to scout further than the UK as most of the Hearts team were from Europe, European players seem to be more gifted than ours and there's some jems to be uncovered, what happened with our links in Australia we had? there's a lot of good talent over there now


3.) 02 Feb 2017 12:25:18
Southsideger am not saying warburton is who a want just the fact is he's who we have and has to be backed till he's no longer the manager as do all the squad its the team we support no just individuals am struggling but a will be there on sat to cheer the team and manager on as always


 

 

01 Feb 2017 12:33:03
What about chris samba bears big strong centre half free agent aswel could atleast give him a 6 month deal see how it goes keeps him fit aswel if he don't sign for crystal palace that is

Scott87

1.) 01 Feb 2017 13:40:14
In theory yes he is a big animal like Balde, however, I don't think we have a budget for any players sadly which rules this out - but in theory he would be a decent signing if he could recapture his Blackburn form


2.) 01 Feb 2017 14:27:05
wouldn't think he'd come, guy seems pretty greedy when it comes to wage demands.


3.) 01 Feb 2017 17:44:46

We already have an over the hill CB in senderos who is not good enough we don't need another


12.) 01 Feb 2017 19:21:48
not many can be worse than kiernan


 

 

28 Jan 2017 20:28:59
See if rossiter was fit and we get oxford, rossiter and hyndman in midfield would be quality. great engines in the 3 of them. halliday was dreadful today passing was poor and big kiernan for me his distrabution is terrible he puts people in danger with his passes if he manages to keep them in the pitch that is.

Scott87

1.) 28 Jan 2017 21:19:10
I am big critic of keirnan but thought he had his best game in a blue jersey today. He cleared his lines when he had too his passing isn't the best but he should defend first and foremost.


2.) 28 Jan 2017 22:03:52
Jaws

I lost count of the number of times Kiernan gave away possession, he was lucky not to see red for a stupid challenge and the sitter that McDonald missed in the first half was down to Kiernan not marking him similar to what happened with the Motherwell goal last week. Kiernan is rank rotten


3.) 28 Jan 2017 22:04:56
Kiernan is hopeless. Been at fault countless times and today. Canny string two passes together. Accident waiting to happen


4.) 28 Jan 2017 22:53:58
Listen guys his passing is bad and I've been on big keirnans back all season but I thought he defended better today. The macdonald sitter was down to Wallace getting caught upfield imo.


5.) 28 Jan 2017 23:00:17
Jaws

Who was supppsed to be marking McDonald?


6.) 29 Jan 2017 00:05:40
Agree with posts above a good holding midfielder a good centre half and a good left back Wallace not a great defender and escapes all the that tav gets


7.) 29 Jan 2017 00:20:28
Why did warbs sign senderos? even when Kiernan and Wilson play rubbish senderos still doesn't get a game and he's on a good wage. disny make sense


8.) 29 Jan 2017 08:47:53
The sitter mcdonald missed was due to wallace not stopping the cross.


9.) 29 Jan 2017 09:16:10
Cee

Who was supposed to be marking McDonald?


10.) 29 Jan 2017 10:22:35
I couldn't agree more with Kiernan - he can be a frustrating nightmare
For me the signing we need to get in is Oxford as he can play deep in midfield and at centre half
Add to that Kyle Bartley on a pre contract
While we are at it add Jak Alnwick as looks a good prospect with potential sell on and 250k might be a snip
I would take Moult from Motherwell as he's a good option for up front as well
Not much of a chance getting all of these guys I know but I for one would be a happy man (at least until the summer)
I'm still hopeful that with a wee bit of patience Rossiter and Garner will come good

If a bid came in for Kiernan I would take it even if it was Monopoly money


11.) 29 Jan 2017 12:02:58
Moult is gash


12.) 29 Jan 2017 12:11:46
A know wallace got caught out when mcdonald missed that sitter but surely as the holding midfielder halliday should have dropped in to cover him but instead halliday was caught in no mans land again what yous think about holt bears cracking wee player but a just feel he's no strong enough at times in a physical match looks like hyndman could keep him out the team


13.) 29 Jan 2017 12:22:09
Jaws, you say Wallace was caught upfield, maybe he was, but it is up to someone from the midfield to cover for him, but then they don't have a football brain to do this. Secondly, it is been said many times on here that Tavernier and Wallace get dragged inside, when the 2 CB's get drawn to one side or the other, it is up to the full backs to come in and cover for them. OK it leaves the wide man free, but better than leaving a player free in the box.


14.) 29 Jan 2017 12:43:15
I agree keirnans next mistake is never far away and he's not the answer but thought he had a steadier game yesterday apart from his passing.


15.) 29 Jan 2017 14:57:51
Cee

I see you haven't been able to answer who was supppsed to be marking McDonald, as for your ridiculous view that it was down to Wallace for not stopping the cross. Could you name me a full back who has stopped every cross into the box?


16.) 29 Jan 2017 18:58:16
Wallace was at fault just as he was partly at fault for the goal that Motherwell scored in the cup but wee in week out we are generally critical of the holding midfield and I would have thought that the majority would want to see Halliday replaced. We saw the difference that Hyndman made yesterday when he replaced Holt and personally I suspect that we would see the same benefits both defensively and in building attacks if we had a quality holding midfield player rather than Halliday!


 

 

18 Jan 2017 13:23:25
Looking for opinions on this bears but what is mcparland actually scouting area wise all he comes up with is scottish and english players lately or people who have played for warburton already why are we no searching europe for a better calibre of player ie leagues in germany spain italy france holland all must have afforable players better than what we have or are looking at just a thought

Scott87

1.) 18 Jan 2017 13:37:26
Totally agree Scott87. Have to broaden our horizons a great deal.


2.) 18 Jan 2017 14:02:27
Frank McParland is one guy, he is the head of a scouting team with no scouts. he is doing so well considering his hands are tied.


3.) 18 Jan 2017 14:47:41
I would guess it is all about pricing mate. We can get young affordable talent from the UK leagues because we can sign them on cheap pre-contracts with limited resources used and a nominal fee. The same rule that enabled us to pick up the likes of Rossiter and Dodoo does not apply for all the european leagues i think. Also - If we aren't scouting abroad, how did we sign Sergei Atakayi? Most of his contacts are in the UK, that much is obvious. But not all of them


4.) 18 Jan 2017 14:52:30
Exactly spoc, he's not able to scout Europe on his own. Especially with the fact we probably can't afford to ship off all over the world to search for players.


5.) 18 Jan 2017 15:00:24
Frank McParland is one guy, we appreciate that but the reason he was given the job was due to his extensive contacts throughout the footballing fraternity.
We can't expect champagne service for lemonade money but we should be getting better value considering the wages we are paying. If he did not have one hand tied behind his back then maybe he would supply us with a better product. There are many problems at Ibrox that need addressed in both the long and short term so let's hope we see genuine progress on all fronts in the near future.


6.) 18 Jan 2017 15:05:05
Spoc he must have european connections considering he was at liverpool aswel am sure we have more than one scout aswel and ex players keeping rangers informed even if it was players using us as a stepping stone to england and that's the gems we need buy on cheap and sell for a profit instead of players who have been down in englands low leagues for a few years and haven't been noticed still


7.) 18 Jan 2017 15:07:04
I think Teddy has it spot on. I hope MW reads his own statements from last year and sticks to young talent that can add value.


8.) 18 Jan 2017 16:25:34
Teddy of the south Sergei atakayi was on trial at fulham and Leicester before he signed for rangers where am sure mcparland got wind of him not doubting he's got some good talent in just think we need a bigger option for players


9.) 18 Jan 2017 16:45:23
warburton says one of the reasons to goes for british players more is because plays from europe can take longer to settle in and he needs players to hit the ground running, which he thinks british players do which i disagree with


10.) 18 Jan 2017 17:03:37
none of warburtons signings have hit the ground running lol maybe hit the ground and stretcherd off


11.) 18 Jan 2017 17:15:55
At Liverpool McPArland could shop in quality Markets, at Rangers under absentee Landlord, King, he can't even afford to shop at Aldi or even Pound land. In fact I doubt he could even afford the 'barres' or 'Paddy's Market'.


12.) 18 Jan 2017 19:27:29
He doesn't have a hand tied, he has both. How do we know he isn't providing good talent and Warbs' domestic bias - mentioned above - led to them not being signed. Literally our scouting network is Frank McParland and only Frank McParland.


13.) 19 Jan 2017 08:29:45
I'm going to throw it out there but why not try and get John Park in to work along side McParland. He is out of work and was the man who uncovered Van Djik and Wanyamma for them.


14.) 19 Jan 2017 03:34:49
But how do know that we aren't doing that, we will be searching all over Europe and further, but we don't always here about this, as we only here about players that sign, not the players we tried to sign


15.) 19 Jan 2017 09:48:50
Benny, I know Park of old and he is merely a self-serving mercenary who got lucky. He made a career out of employing other scouts and taking the credit for their discoveries, fact. He blagged his way into the senior game after being match secretary of an amateur team and is an arrogant little turd.


16.) 19 Jan 2017 10:05:40
I think we have to bear in mind that they joined the club with a 5 years plan. Summer 2016 he signed 4 or 5 17-19yr olds who went straight in to the U20's side. they bought Windass and Crooks as squad plauyers (unfortunate that both got injured after signing the pre-contrat, but that happens) Rossiter was the big one and again - Bad luck for us that he got injured. Dodoo again was brought in for more 1st team action at a low price. I see no flaw in their recruitment policy in youth at all. How many kids are you expecting them to bring in?


17.) 19 Jan 2017 14:07:48
they are certainly other countries we could be scouting for players and who offer better value than current first team players even players closer to home could improve our team but our management team seem intent on bringing english based players to the club this just shows the lack of knowledge
warburton weir have and macpharland as a bargain basment scout who looks for free agents and loans and seems to only scout players from england our scouting system needs a big overhaul still and more scouts added

A get what afm is saying if he comes to rangers we pay a 500 k cross border fee but if he signed for ie spurs it becomes the tribunals decision on the fee which would be close to the 20 million mark if he played for us for a year he could then be signed for whatever rangers want so a english team could get him for half the price ie 10 million and he don't have all the hassel of a tribunal to face and gets to keep playing football no team wants to go to a tribunal and could end up paying 20 million for a free agent

Matthew 94 how has moh no been a good signing he's not getting a chance when he plays he chases every ball and lost causes and 9/ 10 times he gets us a corner or a throw in the opposition half and puts defenders on the back foot with his pace can't really blame him he needs a chance he did no wrong last time he got a run of games same as hodson but warbs just won't play them.
