Thought I would post this even thou think it's bs
Anyway was in the boozer stepps bar when a guy who says his brother is a football agent joined our company . This is what he says that the famous where in talks with Alexander Pato agent about bringing him in the summer window for a cost of around 4.5 mill. Apparently there is a connecting between SG and Pato and their mrs are good friends
As I said think this one is a none starter as must be on a fortuni in wages also never met this guy b4 so unsure if he is gen bloke but thought I would post anyway incase someone can maybe do some digging.


1.) 18 Jan 2019 00:49:56
Given Milan want to resign him I highly highly doubt it.


2.) 18 Jan 2019 08:27:28
think someone pulling your leg Stewarty

as you said will be on ridiculous wages as was once in china, nowhere near the player he was for 2 seasons at milna and nowhere near suited to style of scottish football

i would be astounded if this is even a converstaion SG is having.


3.) 18 Jan 2019 14:33:33
Yeah thought that myself did a wee bit of digging he is on 1.65 mill wages per year jbf so no chance we would come close to paying that unless he is free and 4.5 mill the guy spoke about was wages. Anyway he is off to milan as far as I can see so non starter.

Unbelievable signings fellow bears I really can't believe we have just signed Davis and Defoe.
These signing can't be underestimated as far as world football is concerned we are in the lower leagues as far as financial power is concerned. The cash that's being offered in China, turkey the states etc for us to get these 2 players to more or less finish their careers at our club is truly stunning.

The Stevie G effect. Well done to M Allan and the board. We may not be the richest club in Scotland but this window has shown the world that our club is the biggest and the media and the Tims know it.


1.) 07 Jan 2019 02:37:23
Great post Stewart🇬🇧👍.


2.) 07 Jan 2019 07:10:03
Couldnt agree more mate. The signing of Kamara will be another great piece of business. I've watched the videos of this guy and he really does look the part in Midfield.

{Ed0333's Note - I don’t see many club owners in China, USA or Turkey queuing up for a 36 year old Defoe, got to be honest.


3.) 07 Jan 2019 08:31:41
So Edd you are saying it’s a bad signing and a strange comment for yourself?

{Ed0333's Note - yes mate I don’t think he’ll be as prolific as you think.


4.) 07 Jan 2019 09:26:43
First time poster,
Watching and waiting these past years for us to genuinely challenge for our league title again, I have to echo Stewartyyblue and his post, I think every true supporter of our great club feels this same sense of excitement, this transfer window for the first time feels like we are adding the quality required to win matches and leagues, I hope Davis and Defoe prove u wrong Ed as I feel they will both hit the ground running and add the quality in the final third we have sorely lacked thus far this season.
The way both deals have been agreed shows us all that the board are investing but investing wisely.

{Ed0333's Note - I’m glad you’re excited about your transfers mate I really am. There’s nothing more exciting in football when you’re team buys a few players. I hope Defoe works out for you I’m more than happy to eat humble pie if he does.


5.) 07 Jan 2019 10:02:31
I kinda agree with Ed033. I don't think we will be getting the Defoe we hope. I don't think he will fail as such but I don't think its a master stroke i think its a gamble. Just remember Barton, Robbie Keane, Roy Keane, Andy Cole, Kranjar. But as Ed said and I concur, happy to eat humble pie on this one.


6.) 07 Jan 2019 10:42:42
For $24k per week, I don’t think we could ask for a better signing, the money it cost Celtic to bring Roy and Robbie keen even all those years ago dwarfs the quoted figures for Defoe, we could spend an awful lot more on an untested player and be left with a huge fee and wage for years to come.
I tend to think positively and think if I was signing for my mate I wouldn’t want to let him down Defoe could easily have went to most championship teams on loan but came to us to win medals, that will be his key driver, and the reason I think both him and Davis will make the difference in the second half of the season.


7.) 07 Jan 2019 11:06:11
Sydney. I do agree with you that he will not be coming up here to let SG down, he is after a medal which is perfect. But I just think it will be morelos who could get us over the line not so much defoe. I do think Davis is the big one for us. He is proven up here and will do the job we need.


8.) 07 Jan 2019 13:44:44
Ed I think my point got lost in my post. The point I was trying to make is that Defoe and Davis are still big names and everyone is talking about RANGERS again. I agree that it will prob not be the same Defoe of old however his experience imo will only benefit the likes of morelas, Hardie ECT in and around the training ground.
I also think that morelas will continue tobe our number 9 but in those games that we are struggling Defoe is potentially one of those players that you can bring on and score a vital goal to win us the game.

{Ed0333's Note - why didn’t you say that from the start now I’m picking up what you’re laying down mate 👍


9.) 07 Jan 2019 22:47:34
Regardless of how he does I’m certain if Defoe at this moment in time was publicly available that there would certainly be interest from the MLS that’s their business model they bring in players with big reputations from the top leagues nearing the end of their careers, he already played in it a few years back.

{Ed0333's Note - even the MLS ain’t that desperate anymore


 

 

20 Dec 2018 20:27:23
Thought we played really well tonight on another night we would have scored 2 or 3. There keeper had some fine saves and lost count of how many last ditch tackles and blocks. Best we have played in 5 games.
One thing is certain when you look at our bench tonight only Middleton and Lafferty where avail for attacking option.

SG needs to add at least 3 or 4 attacking options to the squad 2 loans and 2 perm.
J Jones (pre contract) shankland (pre contract) Davis, Solanke loan and Dowell loan and the boy sol from Holland. If we got these then I recon we would win the league.


1.) 21 Dec 2018 08:50:34
for me i'd forget about Solanke and take Shankland and the lad Sol from willem . Davis is a no brainer but sadly looks like Dowell going to Sheff utd.


 

 

06 Dec 2018 15:34:01
I'm like all my fellow bears gutted about the last result.

However I'm not going to overreact and slate the team for a poor performance as overall I'm delighted with the progress of our team since SG became manager.

Under SG we have played 34 games and only lost 5. We are top goal scorer in the league and have the top scorer and assist players in the league.
We have played 13 games in Europe only losing once.

2nd in league with a game n hand and one win against the dims away from top of the league overall

All of this has been achieved with a net spend of under 8 million and one transfer window.

We are a new team with some young inexperienced players and have been really unlucky with regards to key attack minded players ie Murphy Dorrens BB and Kent and last night add Artfield to that list.

I fully believe that if SG can add a couple of quality attack minded players one striker and one att/ mid and cover for one or both full backs to this squad in Jan then we will have a team capable pushing on and winning this league.


1.) 06 Dec 2018 16:05:35
Thank god for that, somebody with some common sense and perspective.

Some of the stuff I’ve been reading on social media is a disgrace.

Literally everybody getting it because of last night, Tav never a Captain, Morelos should be ‘sacked’, Mark Allen ‘needs to sign winners not kids’.

Absolutely pathetic, panic merchant stuff.

Onto the next game fs.


2.) 06 Dec 2018 16:25:39
Well said Stewart's, said similar in my post, if we signed messi tomorrow, we would still get people slaughtering him.


3.) 06 Dec 2018 16:50:11
Agreed, I’ll never understand how some supporters just expect us to stroll every game after the state we’ve been in for the past few years. It won’t happen overnight.


4.) 06 Dec 2018 16:51:35
I like any other blue nose is bitterly disappointed about last night! Gutted even about how we played and in hindsight how the game at Fir Park panned out.
However. great post Stewarty! Good sensible post with excellent points.

Bear Mode, only one thing irks me and it is the Tav is not captain material. Fantastic player, great delivery, loves the club and has been fantastic for us for a number of years but he shouldn’t be captain.
Last night a real captain would have driven that team to victory, he would have had stern words with Morelos booted his arse and demanded he didn’t get sent off or even have a word with the gaffer and told him to take him off! Tav just doesn’t do enough as a captain for me!
In my opinion a captain should be in the middle of the park bossing it, setting the tone the tempo and connecting the defence to the midfield and driving the midfield going forward. Either that or the GK who can see the whole picture! If it was my choice my captain would be Ryan Jack or Allan McGregor.


5.) 06 Dec 2018 17:33:11
Superb comments stewartyblue, summed the situation perfectly. Although it was a rank performance last night, these things happen, and overall we are vastly improved under SG.


6.) 06 Dec 2018 20:15:44
I agree we are a new team and to be honest we are ahead on we're we all thought we would be. The point is though Morelos is a good forward but 3 reds before xmas when we have no real back up. I think his style and temperament is suited else where. I have said it before, the next window will be interesting. With European football then players have been in the bigger shop window. Wait and see As for loan players, job done move them on.


7.) 06 Dec 2018 20:21:48
I've been going to ibrox for years 87shenderson. Whether you think tav is captain material or not doesn't for one minute mean that the rest of our players can't be self captains and drive themselves on, as they're Glasgow rangers players! We should have eleven captains when our starting 11, cross that white line, so i personally don't wear that as an excuse!


8.) 06 Dec 2018 20:54:11
Good posts guys. I actually think being captain is a burden for Tav as he is not a natural leader, advisor or motivator on the pitch. Of last nights side believe only Jack and potentially McCauley/ Goldson are potential captaincy material. In the short term believe SG should create a number of active captains with responsibility to provide leadership and convey instructions on the pitch. We lack onfield leadership and until such times as we have a natural single leader on the Park I believe this is the way to go. In other industries this is normal practice during periods of turbulence and significant change. Just my thoughts.


9.) 06 Dec 2018 22:11:52
Sorry Coop but for me a captain is massive! I agree we need 11 players pulling together but if one steps out of line a strong personality should be there to put things straight!

Greig, Butcher, Gough, Amo, Ferguson, Davis, Jig. you think any of these boys would tolerate Morelos acting like he did?!
For the record I really like Tavernier, he’s a fantastic asset to our club, I just struggle to see how he can influence a game, take it by the scruff of the neck and pull us out a hole!


10.) 06 Dec 2018 22:40:59
87 you said captain should be in middle of the park then went for jack or greegs greegs is a keeper unless you want him to start playing dm.


11.) 07 Dec 2018 05:39:25
Read my post Gannet instead of trying to trip me up!

I said the captain should be in the middle of the park (here Jack is) or the GK which I’m well aware McGregor plays!


12.) 07 Dec 2018 05:49:44
Its hard to criticise any individual as they were mostly all poor.

But the thing that got me was not the level of performance, it was the lack of determination, fight and passion.

People now wanting the ball, flat movement, not showing for throw ins, two folk jumping to challenge for the same ball over and over.

You expect at least a clear determination when you go to Ibrox on a cold midweek night.


13.) 07 Dec 2018 11:51:33
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.


14.) 07 Dec 2018 14:11:06
I'm delighted overall how we have done this season after 1 window the team have been a team for the majority of the season gerrard still cutting his teeth in management it's got the feel of wer witnessing someone who's going to go on to win big things in management he's done brilliantly . Now a few points I'd like to make is that on Wednesday I never seen the game live because I was working but with them down to 10 men for me we should of gone 4-4-2 straight away get the ball wide stretch Aberdeen tire them then if we still not in the game go 3 2 5 and hoof it in the box with a McCauley up top flicking it on go old style it's old fashioned it's not pretty but it works we show teams like Aberdeen and hibs too much respect get out and play like it's an old firm I personally don't mind a player getting sent off for a challenge like Kevin Thomson or something it shows heart sets the tone get at them make sure if shinnie gets a touch in the middle of the park he can't lift his head and ping a 30 40 yard pass get him hit take the booking . Wer no Barcelona wer rangers I hope we sign Davis cooper and Dallas from Leeds jones from Kilmarnock and I'd take moult from Preston as well go out spend another 10 million on these guys then we would have a squad capable of competing also the guy power from Kilmarnock would be a shout but we have plenty options I'm just going by his form the now perfect midfielder for the big games he would take a booking or two but it would be worth it lol.


15.) 07 Dec 2018 17:26:09
For the final time, MOULT IS HOPELESS!

The usual post regarding a friend of a friend anyway one of my mates told me that his work colleague who regularly has a beer with one of top coaches at the Hummel arena. I thought I would post some of the things that they had discussed.

Apparently he said to him that he has worked across the country at the highest levels and that the talent that is currently at rangers (youth/ reserve level) is incredible and up there with any top club in Britain.
He also said that he fully expect between 5 and 6 players to be pushing really hard for a place in the first team over the next 12 months.
He said that what will prob happen is that in the summer window most of these players pushing for a place will be loaned out for 6 months to gain first team experience before being introduced to the first team.

He then went on to say that there was at least 3 boys at youth level that in his option have the potential to go all the way in the game and that the club is constantly receiving phone calls from the likes of Barca, man Utd ECT about these boys.


1.) 29 Nov 2018 15:35:12
Hope this all true future looks bright if it is. A remember Neil Warnock saying rangers has best boys in Britain he seen them last year when his boy had a trial.


2.) 29 Nov 2018 17:06:26
I could well believe it mate as my mate is coauthor kids at Rangers and he also takes our boys club team
And from what I understand your comments are in the money.


3.) 29 Nov 2018 17:42:49
Sorry meant to say coaches the kids at Rangers.

Absolutely brilliant from our u17 first British team to win it man Utd man city arsenal spurs and the smellies across the city have all tried and failed.

Some real prospects coming up just hope the keep progressing and eventual break into our first team.

Superb from our coaching staff and my well done.

Hey guys was watching Spanish league a guy I think we should look at is Martin Braithwaite scores plenty of goals. His contract is up in June. Imo certainly an upgrade on big Lafferty.

I know SG needs to keep players happy by rotating but for me if he plays this team week in week out we will win the league.

McGregor

Tag, Goldson, Katic, BB

Candy, McCrorie, Jack, Kent

Arfield or Davis

Alfie

Subs Wor, Defoe, halliday, Middleton, Fod,

When writing this my god how far we have come since SG came in when I can't find a spot for the likes of couly, Laff, Kama, Pol, Flan, McCau, Grezand with the Doc Hardie and Rubbens to return and add Jordon J, Murphy and Dorrens and some exciting youngers pushing for the first team Dallas, Kelly, Atak, Rubben, Houston, Wilson, Burt, Capo, McPake, Barj, Beerman, McCrorie, Firth and now starting to attract youngsters from the likes of Chelsea (signing not loaning) what a squad we are building.
One other thing is the age of our core players McCrorie Jack, Katic, Middleton, Kamara, Jones,
Goldson, BB, Grez and
Kent and Morelas, Couly if we manage to keep all under 26 so will only get better and have yet to hit their peek.

Recon once we free up the wages of some of the dead wood herr pena holt Wallace. 2 or 3 quality signings in the summer hopefully one being Kent.

What a difference a year makes

What a job the board my and SG and the back room staff like Murty Thomo, Beale have did as I think we have still managed all this with a net spend of under 10 mill.

The glory years are not that far away guys.

Let's go 55 is coming.

Ps let's see if they bite with this one ps and a whole glut of new referees joining the craft and the order the futures bright.
Also heard that we had recently recruited several hackers from Holland to hack into VAR when required.


1.) 04 Feb 2019 16:26:14
Good post stewarty, that is our strongest line up. I think we should be doing whatever we can to get kent permanently. 👍.


2.) 04 Feb 2019 16:35:21

Stewart's, not a chance beerman will wear our jersey again.


5.) 04 Feb 2019 17:09:16
Totally agree mate SG changes team far too much tho.


6.) 04 Feb 2019 17:39:43
Started reading your post Stewartyblue and disagree right from the start. You stated that Stevie G has to rotate his team to keep players happy. its about putting your best team out there to win games and maybe keep our loyal supporters happy!


7.) 04 Feb 2019 20:35:15
I agree goalie but being a manager you need to reward players hard work on the training ground and keep the squad happy and fighting for places.
SG has been rotating the squad, mainly as he has stated to rest player with the amount of games we have played. I just think when he does rotate we tend to struggle so imo the 11 I suggested is our best team and he should stick with it home and away and only tinker to cover injuries suspensions ECT.

From what I'm seeing it looks like the team I suggested mainly will be our away team 433 and he will play 442 diamond at our home games including Defoe, Davis and worrel

Sorry Paul86 I have dyslexia hence the bad gramma and spelling predictive text does really help and makes it worse. It takes me a while to write a post and struggle sometimes with spelling players names correctly so shorten them as I'm guessing most fans will know who I'm referring to mate.

Jboy have to agree with you mate 're Beerman but had to include him as any time he played for first team he never let us down and the boy is out on loan and wasn't sold so maybe the coaching staff still see a future for him.


8.) 05 Feb 2019 07:15:30
"Why are you half spelling some names and other names in full? Just looks like a mad ramble. " WTF! Grammar person. This isn't an English exam it's a public forum where anyone can talk/ type anyway they like . Did u understand the post? Job done then. I normally wouldn't reply to stuff like this but read the guy saying "sorry I have dyslexia" and felt bad as. I know when I've posted a line up I've had to go and double check spelling of Barisic, Katic etc on Google as my spelling sucks. But I'm certainly not away to put down someone who hasn't done that as maybe they're not as anally retentive as I am 🤣.


 

 

01 Feb 2019 22:16:03
Just watched the hearts game wanted a wee look at JJ. Thought he played ok but from what I've seen from him so far this season, i think he will struggle to get into our starting 11 if murphs and kent (if we manage to sign him) are fit and also think Middleton and candy are better players.

On another note, I know he divides opinion between the bears but Imo I still think we missed a trick not signing Naismith. For me he would have offered a lot more than Defoe will as his game is more suited to the high press and I recon he prob score more goals than Defoe from now to end of the season (ps hope I'm wrong) and the other thing is he would have cost a 5th of the wages.


1.) 01 Feb 2019 22:48:45
Probably buy him in a couple of years time, he is only 32 at the moment, too young for us. One for the future.


2.) 01 Feb 2019 23:21:43
Dont really rare murphy much myself. So i think jones is better than grezda, murphy and middleton ( another greg wylde) . But if wee keep kent the he would be fighting kent and candieas for a spot.


3.) 02 Feb 2019 00:12:34
have to agree stewarty

dunno if he’ll score more goals than JD but i wld have had naisy back

queue pelters.


4.) 02 Feb 2019 07:42:31
I agree with you stewarty blue think he would have fitted into our system better he played well against kilmarnock and scored Defoe is more of a poacher and not yet fit just hope we can fit him I to team or I think most of time he will be used as a sub.

If any of you guys watch morelas incident again it's McKenna leg and feet that pulls morelas leg towards him.
I'm 50/ 50 is to wether it was a red for either player.
Shagger definitely a red imo.

Just watched the highlights show that A hole Sutherland coming away with title race what title race after the unclean highlights. Falling over themself to get shagger a ban and condemning alfie no mention or repeat highlights of uncleans centre half taking out hibs Shaw with his elbow definitely a red card also.

What a lot of single fish coldo. One bad result with all of our central att/ mid out injuried or suspended and your wanting the mid replaced. What will make you happy play 50 win 50 one goal in each game from all of our attackers in each game.
It's football we are going to lose some games we can't win every match. Get a f##### grip. That mob had one shot on goal and scored from it and even that never came from open play. Their keeper had at least 3 brill saves unreal the reaction of some of our fans is shocking. Just have a wee think on where we where this time last year.

Got to agree ds think coisty hit the nail on the head defoe needs to be more involved in the game come short receive the ball ECT but fairness to him last night he made a good couple of runs where he was wrongly ruled offside. Suppose time will tell and it's only 6 month loan with option of 2 further 6 months.

I'm sure all of the rangers family will hope that Lee G get threw all of his personal issues and comes out the other side in good health physically and mentally.
