Morning lads. Massive game today. Would anyone have taken where we are this morning at the start of the season? 3 points behind them and the same amount of games played? A win on Thursday to go into the last 32 of the europa league? I’d have bitten yer hand off. I know it’s very early days but we have come so far in such a short period of time. Also, what do you make of celtics “2 biggest title challengers” fighting it out with Livingston for a place in the top 6?

Everybody knows we were bang average today but here’s a question for all of the numbskulls. Would any sane bears fan on here rather we played like Barcelona and lost? If the answer is no then be quiet and stop moaning. Guys wanting players sold etc. Away game monkey off our back today and hopefully gives us the boost we need to kick on. Rangers of the previous 3 or 4 seasons would have probably drawn or even lost!

Remember last season we pumped their goal for 88 minutes and got beat 2-0. Would folk prefer that happened because we “played good football”.



30 Aug 2018 18:37:19
For all of those wanting to sell players and get shot of folk listen to our mangers very sensible (always a class act btw) post match interview. Nobody was more disgusted with Morelos than me (needs to sort this stuff out) but get rid? Come on tae f**k lads?


1.) 30 Aug 2018 20:17:00
Drop him for Sunday and let him know.

2.) 30 Aug 2018 21:12:23
Well said Sir.
If he can channel his anger in the right way, I think Stevie and Garry could well be the people to help him do so, then the wee man could end up being a very special player for our club.

Right lads been a few days now since our first competitive match under Steven gerrard. I’m in costa adeje, couldn’t see the match but from what I’m hearing and reading it wasn’t great. Managed to follow on the live chat on here and got into a spat with a few as some of the posts were imo bang out of order. Are we not prepared to give this new era time and indeed a chance? New management, new players, new system? Some of these guys will never have been to a stadium or full house like that never mind playing in front of them. I understand there were 6 or 7 playing from last season but these guys will also need time to adjust to the changes. I know we need to hit the ground running give me a 2-0 victory in Europe any day of the week. Thoughts lads


1.) 14 Jul 2018 08:12:02
I don’t like bashing Rangers fans but by **** some of them are thick, moaning about last nights result. We controlled the game. Scored two, clean sheet, and never looked in danger, IF we had a finisher it could’ve been 5! A great result and a good performance for our first competitive hit out and its European competition. A team with 5/ 6 new players starting including 3 of the back 4 and the keeper. We are still in pre season teams and combinations take time to gel. It’s no FIFA or Football Manager. Give them a break. I’ll judge them in December until then they deserve time and a bit of PATIENCE! 🔴⚪️💙

2.) 14 Jul 2018 08:20:54
I suppose you had to see it for yourself sharpshooter. We basically played the same as last season although we definitely looked more solid in defence. In saying that though, the team we played against didn't even look as good as a Junior side - they were very poor and still managed to hit the cross bar and put us under some pressure at corners.

I'm hoping that Sadiq is a deadly finisher because we need one to help and support Morelos, even just to shoulder the responsibility.

Also we need someone in midfield that can put there foot on the ball and control a game of football - maybe coulibaly will be the answer?

Personally the guy Mulumbu from Kilmarnock hasn't signed with anyone yet. We should definitely try and sign him even for a year or two. For me he was the player of the season last year.

In general though in regard to giving someone time. I think Gerrard will get less time than anyone has ever had at Ibrox. We have had to watch terrible football for years and think most fans are fed up. The expectation level is so high that Gerrard simply needs to get it right and soon.

3.) 14 Jul 2018 08:21:06
Which begs the question, why persist with Morelos and Windass from last season? A striker should have been the priority. I'm glad the defence looks solid now and we have plenty of midfield players but we need to put games to bed much sooner this season!

4.) 14 Jul 2018 09:07:03
Great post sharpshootersPOM. SG and his team will quickly work out that any of last seasons players are simply not good enough if we get any decent money for morelos or windass i would bite their hand off. i still say tav can't defend and should play in advanced role. murphy is the one exception and will do well. Almost a full new team is required and this will take a litte time. SG and co will get it right. he is quickly working out the players who he knows he can rely on and the individuals who have let the club down far too many times in the past

5.) 14 Jul 2018 09:08:05
I was at the game on Thursday and it worryingly echoed the European home tie last year. Good control in the first half, missed a few chances and looked like cannot sustain the intensity required over the full game. I think most would agree this was the story of last season. I think there are some good signs and it is always difficult this early in the season.

My biggest concern is that Candeas and Windass do no to have what it takes to play for Rangers and Tavernier was caught out of position on at least 3 occasions. Against better opposition we will be found out. If we are to challenge for the league, these guys are not good enough.

6.) 14 Jul 2018 09:53:11
I do agree Morelos and Windass should not be our front 2? The amount of chances last year missed was dreadful and we need another striker in🇬🇧

7.) 14 Jul 2018 10:00:23
Apart from looking solid at the back (against who?, ) It was scarily similar to last season. As far as I know hibs haven't paid millions for a striker, & they got the job done first time of asking!
I appreciate there are lots of changes and things will hopefully develop, but show me something Stevie G.

8.) 14 Jul 2018 10:23:05
I agree we look solid at the back and totally support mr g and his new backroom team but windass and morellos are as bad as last season and just ain't good enough.

9.) 14 Jul 2018 13:07:05
I asked on here couple of weeks ago who else thought we were short of some quality players to win league. I was shot down re candaes, windlass and Morelos.
They need to become bench players, although I do like Morelos.
Also Tav has to defend first and foremost caught out three times at least.

10.) 14 Jul 2018 14:21:05
Zikos you obv have no clue about the levels in football. The opposition didn’t look as good as a junior side? Seriously lol. The levels are enormous! Junior teams playing in Scottish cup prove that.
Opposition were set up to frustrate and kept a solid shape. It was our second competitive game and fans need a reality check. I’d take a win and a clean sheet in Europe every day of the week. They will have to come out now and i'd expect us to exploit the spaces and score a few more goals and keep a clean sheet.

11.) 14 Jul 2018 15:23:34
Scotty123, That was exactly my point! If schkupi (sorry for the spelling) were to enter the Scottish cup at the same level as some of the junior teams then they would get knocked out pretty quickly.

They say there isn't any easy games in Europe, well that had to be the easiest, and they still hit the crossbar and put us under pressure at corners.

In regard to being well set up. You don't have to be a professional team to be well organised, look at Iceland.

Gerrard should try and arrange some close door matches so he can nail down his best eleven. Watching the game the other night it seemed he was still experimenting.

How’s about when any bear comes across sports direct, go in, grab as much garbage that Ashley sells as they can, take it to the till and when all of it has been scanned through, tell the poor wee sod at the counter politely “ no thanks son, I’ve changed my mind”. Causing havoc


1.) 08 Jul 2018 08:26:06
Don't take it out on the staff, take it out on Ashley if you take it out on anybody.

2.) 08 Jul 2018 09:07:57
The staff there have it bad enough as it is

3.) 08 Jul 2018 11:52:18
Reading the report it looks as though king has broken an agreement that would allow sports direct to make an equal bid to sell rangers goods, and that's why Ashley has taken action.

4.) 08 Jul 2018 13:27:00
Ye most of his staffs on zero contracts treats his staff like rubbish.

5.) 08 Jul 2018 13:32:00
Maybe we should be looking closer to home and asking why our chairman paid £3m to Ashley to get this deal and declared it a victory.

6.) 08 Jul 2018 13:45:46
The protest outside stores is stupid idea aswel. That’s just free advertising for him!

7.) 08 Jul 2018 14:59:59
Sounds to me as if someone screwed up. Most likely not King but whoever he delegated the job of making the Agreement to get Ashley and SD to bugger off.

8.) 08 Jul 2018 15:04:17
ABHAB enough about the chairman please . it out a victory . as far as I am led to beleive the injunction for his option to sell the strips is just until the end of the month or Aug. if this is the fact we can all surely wait another few weeks . I for one would love to wait then buy a couple . gi to st james park ( that is if he still is allowed by Newcastle support to sit in stands ) sneak up and throw the strip in his face . then suffer The qoncechenses of being evicted. I would just live to do that . the man is a rat

9.) 08 Jul 2018 15:08:21
TOMUSA the signatories on the deal were King and Paul Murray so seems King was very much involved in the screw up

10.) 08 Jul 2018 19:40:30
Shouldn't matter if Fat Mick is upset he's not being allowed to bid. If Rangers decide Woolworths is preferred bidder Mick should have hee haw to do with it.

Massive fan of Tav. Everyone entitled to their opinion but the guy has a great engine and is one of our biggest assets who brings so much to the table. Seems to be a scapegoat when things don’t go our way. Would never compare him to gough etc as a captain but obviously has a big influence on the team behind the scenes which the manager sees on a daily basis. Would be gutted if he left as he clearly loves the club but every player has a price I suppose.

If supercooper has ever mentioned that Goldson might be a future captain for us there is a right good chance the big man will be off this month 😩.

DOIGER that’s 5 managers now that hasn’t thought hardie was good enough or ready mate. I’d love to be proved wrong regarding the boy but that says it all as far as I’m concerned. Yeah some of these managers haven’t been the best but they can’t all be wrong. I feel the championship is his level.

Hey swagman you don’t have the ability to get rid of players or choose captains either and that certainly isn’t your job eh? Btw that mob sneaked in through the back door last night and are “light years ahead of us” so at least you’ll be able to tune in to them on a Thursday instead of criticising us on a daily basis?

He doesn’t actually say his goals will be the match winner I think he is referring to Morelos and what he brings to the team, as a blind man can see we perform much better when he plays, even though I cringe every time SC11 makes a post like this because 9 times out a 10 he puts the kiss of death on someone and the opposite happens 😱.

Agree with some of your post but regarding our future 1st team manager, let’s see how he gets on, give the guy a chance and calm down . We all know what happens every time you get ahead of yourself.

I see my last post with what I feel were valid points regarding your opinion Ed001 has not been shown, quite clearly because I disagree with you and what you wrote. Unfortunately we do not have that luxury eh mate?


{Ed001's Note - actually you replied to the wrong thread, but don't let that get in the way of you whining.}

No Ed you said you were not impressed by Kent and he was one of the better players. What does that say about the rest of our team who gave everything? This is 1 of our greatest results in years and you pitch up and discredit it on here of all places? We absolutely pumped a better team in every position on the pitch. Not to mention the manager and the fans. Get a grip of yourself.


{Ed001's Note - oh grow up. Discrediting? Don't be such a child.}

Queens11 Maldini was a left back mate 🙈.


{Ed001's Note - he was also a world class centre back.}
