Spoke to a mate who knows James Mcarthurs dad, McArthur hasn't signed a new deal at palace as he's homesick, he wants back up the road. Make of that what you will.

I like MaCarthur but my problem is if we sign him and and Arfield and make Murphy's deal permanent then our 4 across the middle are all very late 20s/ early 30s.

Going off topic aswell does anyone agree that Ross McCrorrie is a cracking defensive midfielder in the making NOT a centre half?


1.) 06 May 2018 13:23:42
Stuart, I agree that McCrorrie’s best position is defrnsive midfield

2.) 06 May 2018 14:52:56
I can see McCrorrie is going to flourish under stevie g if he turns out half the player he was it's win win win

3.) 06 May 2018 14:54:49
The word earlier in the week was McArthur himself said that he signed a 4 year deal 2 years ago yet Transfermakt still says he's out of contract in June. Got to assume the player is right so it seems unlikely that he's an option much as I'd like to see it.

4.) 06 May 2018 15:17:10
Didn't McArthur just come out and say there's still 2 years on bust contract? Pretty sure he did

5.) 06 May 2018 23:28:13
Never heard him come out and say that lads but you may well be right. Just passing on what my mate said.



01 Feb 2018 20:29:15
Pretty decent transfer window no doubt about it.

Now we need to push on and I'm sure Mark Allen is already looking at summer signings, what and who do you all think we need?

For me off the top of my head i'd say out:

Rossiter (pending fitness by May)
Morelos (if these bids of £8m are true)

I may have missed one or two but we have a big squad and players off the wage bill. With 9 leaving (my opinion) i'd say we need to bring in 4 or 5 (quality over quantity)

A centre half I have no one in mind?

A right back I have no one in mind?

Central midfield i'd do all we can to bring in Scott arfield who's out of contract this summer, failing that I would bring in James Macarthur who's also out of contract.

Right wing/ midfield I'd bring in cadden from Motherwell as back up and to eventually replace Candeias.

Up front I'd look into will grigg from Wigan, out of the names I've mentioned he would like cost the most.

If morelos is sold we could look at signing the players I mentiomed above along with the current loan signings (Murphy, Cummings, Martin) for less than what we get for morelos. Add a few for pena and potentually Herrera say £1.5m for them both we could hage made more money than we've spent and improved the side along with reducing the wage bill.

Sorry for the long post lads, nightshift and bored haha.


1.) 01 Feb 2018 23:00:36
RB Alan Hutton
CB someone faster than Bates but also young with potential
CM I think were a bit heavy at the moment
WM Chris Cadden for sure
ST Devante Cole being behind Cummings but ahead of Hardie in selection

2.) 02 Feb 2018 01:26:45
Cole has signed for Wigan

3.) 02 Feb 2018 01:28:06
Like us to sign Martin Murphy and Cummings for a start! Cadden would also be good signing imo!

4.) 02 Feb 2018 02:38:43
The problem is who's going to take the guys on your list? we can't afford to pay anymore off.

5.) 02 Feb 2018 08:04:01
Sebrofg I agree it all depends on getting rid of certain players.

Murty4me we are heavy in midfield but if we managed to get pena, halliday, Krancjar and Rossiter of the wage bill it would surely make room for one in there?

6.) 02 Feb 2018 08:44:38
I still think there’s a player in Rossiter. I know most won't agree but if he can sort out his injury’s then I think the wee man would be solid in there.

7.) 02 Feb 2018 09:33:39
Stuart I agree we are heavy in midfield but it is dross ie Pena Kranjcar Halliday I would happily swap they 3 for McTominay Goss and Hyndman if it was affordable and possible what's Zelalem up to these days 😂😂😂

8.) 02 Feb 2018 09:43:59
whats the fascination with will grigg? i think he's pretty useless and we already have the penalty box type striker in cummings. we really need another striker in the mould of morelos for when he leaves in the summer and grigg is most certainly not the guy.

9.) 02 Feb 2018 11:04:46
Rossiter will never be fit

10.) 02 Feb 2018 14:53:24
What about big Hanley solid CB could form a good partnership with Martin and only 26

11.) 02 Feb 2018 16:49:12
Mc Arthur just signed a deal with palace

12.) 02 Feb 2018 16:49:35
Cadden, Cummings and Murphy all in for me!

13.) 02 Feb 2018 20:30:37
tav is ten times better that hutton is now so i'd stick with tav as he has formed a very nice partnership with candias

14.) 02 Feb 2018 20:38:30
rossiter is playing with the under 20's remember the boy is still young and he will heal well because of this.

he had couple of serious injurys but he will be a top player for us as long as we have the patience with him.

put it this way if we get rid of him just now it wouldn't make sense as he has been getting treatment with us and we have stuck by him I think if next season he can get a full season staying fit he would be our most valuable player in English teams eyes.

which in turn will be good for us please stop with the get rid of a player because he has had a hard time of it stuff as this does nothing for the boys confidence

15.) 02 Feb 2018 20:39:35
No thanks, seen milk turn quicker than Hanley!



30 Jan 2018 08:23:43
I don't believe the morelos thing is true. £6.5m for a fairly unproven striker, no chance. If it was to be true though I'd take the cash, pay the money to make Cummings, Martin and Murphy permanent now (£1.5m) . Look at getting a striker on loan from England until the summer Then bring in another proven striker and centre half in summer.


1.) 30 Jan 2018 12:22:29
and Chris Cadden

2.) 30 Jan 2018 17:48:39
Totally agree, we would be nuts to knock back that money for fredo! Imo Cummings offers more so take the money and sign Cummings and Murphy on permanent deals



22 Aug 2017 23:01:27
Rangers to sign Aaron nemane on loan from man city. Pacey winger with an eye for goal apparently.


1.) 23 Aug 2017 22:01:15
no eye for goal but is very quick



18 Jul 2017 23:11:13
Keep hearing rumours about players saying they don't rate the new guys. Fair enough they may well have said this but I'm almost 100% sure a couple of Mexican internationals (one of which hasn't actually played yet), a 90 odd capped Portuguese international, a Scotland international and a highly rated young Portuguese centre half are all better than the likes of Kiernan, ohalloran, Forrester etc.

Teams don't gel over night these things take time. The new players need to get used to a new country, different styles and different culture. let's give them time to settle before we judge.

It hasn't been an ideal start but I'm not worried about losing closed doors friendlies, we've had seasons in the past where we've had awful pre seasons and won the league. I don't think we will win the league but I think we need to be patient. let's see where we are at the end of August then we can start to judge until then we need to get behind the manager and his new players.


1.) 19 Jul 2017 00:05:30
I think what's happening is people r judging the manager very quickly and mayb not the players.

2.) 19 Jul 2017 00:07:55
Yeah your right teams don't gel overnight but come on, losing to parttimers then getting beat off a second string st Johnstone team with most of our new players involved. The writing is on the wall, anyone who says Pedro should be given a chance is in denial, he is a disaster and all the rumours about unrest and players confronting the manager is beginning to gather pace and with the new season just around the corner i for one hope the board have the balls to sack this guy and bring in a proper manager before it's too late. Unfortunately this board are weak and will stick by this guy until the results will inevitably leave them with no choice but to show him the door. I'm all for giving managers a chance but for goodness sake the job is clearly too big for Pedro!

3.) 19 Jul 2017 06:04:30
It is with regret that I say that I agree with everything you said RonnieR9

4.) 19 Jul 2017 07:34:21
There's been a campaign against Pedro since he walked through the door by the media and it seems a lot of rangers fans are buying into it as well. Results over pre season have been shocking but then it hasn't been a proper pre season as they weren't counting on shocking Euro result. I think the fact many of the new signings can't speak English isn't helping. I've heard the rumours about previous players (kenny miller) specifically saying the new players are rubbish but it always comes from a friend of a friend who supposedly knows a player. Left and right back concern me but I think we should see how things go first few league games before jumping on the bandwagon.

5.) 19 Jul 2017 10:09:22
Agree 100% got to give Pedro and players time I really think it will but all the negative stuff especially from the media won't help they want us to fail I know Europe was hard to take what about the other Scottish teams just as bad and Celtic still have a lot to do for champions league group stages

6.) 19 Jul 2017 10:22:16
Enough of the conspiracy theories. Show me the evidence of a campaign against Pedro. In my eyes, any bad press Pedro has had has been of his own making with his idiotic statements and results.

7.) 19 Jul 2017 10:40:44
The simple truth of the matter is not one thing has changed in his time as manager except some good sound bites and a few signs up and around the training ground.

The new players, from the limited time we saw them, weren't very impressive - but most players need time. What worries me is his "tactics" and "style".

Setting out that last Europa game with both Rossiter and Jack is mind blazingly negative. Persistent mentioning of high press, quick play, crosses from wide and so on are all well and good, but its not showing on the park - Aberdeen have been weakened this summer of that there is no doubt, yet I would still fancy them to finish above us this year, and when you factor in the amount of money invested in the squad, it is a shambles.
Pedro can only take so much blame, you then must start to look toward the board that appointed a man with no real pedigree and a questionable track record at best.

Only time will tell, but I would think from our first 5 games, anything less than 11 points and he has to be replaced.

8.) 19 Jul 2017 11:15:48
With Aberdeen signing Stewart, mackay Stevens and christie I would say they have at least stayed on par with last season.

9.) 19 Jul 2017 11:18:19
I have to admit my concern is the lack of tactics not so much the signings. I personally am not a fan of 433 or 451 whatever you want to call it. I think a 442 diamond would suit us. Jack, Pena, Dorrans and Kranjcar in middle with 2 strikers up front. Playing with 2 strikers is a must for me in most games, especially Ibrox

10.) 19 Jul 2017 15:39:05
did they not sign sean malloney aswell? half decent player

11.) 19 Jul 2017 16:26:58
Jyf is spot on. He has faced negative press amongst some Rangers fans from the beginning. Same type of fans who want a "Rangers man" in.

Neiderkorn was just the car crash most of these numpties were begging for so they can install another "Rangers man".

12.) 19 Jul 2017 19:29:02
Pedro a disaster . not taken in by media. judging him by watching team and results since his arrival . not one good performance from any of his foreign signing as I have stated before Derek mcinness should have been boards first signing and I am sure with millions Pedro has been wasted mcinness would have built a good team to challenge the tims

13.) 19 Jul 2017 20:43:59
Definitely not a fan of the 4-3-3 formation. Imo I think we should start near enough all games 4-1-4-1 then switch accordingly. Our opening results are massive and we will need to build confidence and not go into games thinking we've already won!
We have on paper a harder start than last Season, Motherwell away is tricky and I don't care what the final score is as long as we win the thing.
Thoughts. What formation do u think Ped will go with at Fir Park and who?
My Team in a 4-1-4-1.
Alves (C)
Regarding who plays up front it prob comes down to showing to be on form during the remaining friendlys.

14.) 20 Jul 2017 14:19:29
ronnie, guys like u that put all the negativity out there do nothing other than harm our team and make us sound like greeting faced wains.
yes we have lost a couple of games but that doesn't mean this team won't click.
and to be honest i don't think we will win this league for the next few years realistically but i'm not going to say these players are terrible and the manager is worse just because they haven't clicked yet that's just childish.

15.) 20 Jul 2017 14:23:04
Would someone please tell Pedro what colours gers play I'm his quote after st Johnstone game was he not worried as team was producing and playing well man not up to it

Why are people upset about Wilson going? In 3 years at us he's played for the last month and that's it, even then that's debatable as he was poor against st Johnstone and killie. His positioning is very questionable also. For me he's a decent squad player but not a starter. Good luck to him in America but he won't be a big loss.


1.) 26 Jan 2018 22:11:23
Excactly he has not done nowhere near enough over the past 3years to worrent a new 3year deal like some people were wanting him to get offered.



05 Jan 2018 23:42:27
Seeing loads of guys complaining at us being linked with rated prospects from smaller teams than us.

I must admit I agree. Why waste our time with these players when guys like Sanchez and ozil are out of contract in the summer and aguero seems to be getting pushed out at man city.

Ozil and ryan jack would be a decent midfield and Sanchez would be brilliant up top with morelos leaving aguero as an impact sub.


1.) 06 Jan 2018 00:53:33
It does seem the club is taking a diffrent route and are looking for younger lads with potenial and sell on value that's fine if there good enough and can make a diffrence straight away to the squad and play in the team.
But bringing in loan players i do not see the point espically if we have no chance signing them like the lad goss.
Overall it seems the strategy at the club has changed and we are looking to cut costs.

2.) 06 Jan 2018 01:12:48
aye sarcy attitude totally justified mate because there's nothing in between the elite players you mentioned and the unproven ones we are linked it. totally bang on to look at league one etc

3.) 06 Jan 2018 10:29:07
You can see clearly the market we operate in at present.

We've a base of experience, your tavs, Wallace, alves, dorrans, Jack, Miller. Some young lads, morelos, mcrorie, John. Some squad players, holt, windass, halliday, ohallaran, candias, wilson.

The transfer market is for exactly what we're doing. Moving on the guys that can't hack it, freeing up resources to bring players in who can.

Murphy seems a good signing, the loan guys some we'll keep, some we'll change again in the summer.

As long as we are continually moving forward it doesn't matter.

All the names unfortunately won't excite us, but if we pick up the odd nougat along the way, all good.

We are obviously prepared to pay the wages for key players.



04 Jan 2018 17:57:02
It looks like Murphy is a done deal. i'd like us to look at a pre contract for Scott arfield now. Out of contract in the summer and unlikely to get a new deal by the looks of it. A midfield 5 of Murphy and Candeias wide, dorrans playing in front of arfield and Jack would be a step in the right direction in my opinion with the likes of McCrorrie able to play in midfield or at the back, Barjonas able to cover in midfield and windass pushing dorrans and murphy for a spot. i'd also look at another right sided player to push candeias.

Rumours about tav and windass attracting interest from down south I'd do as much as possible to keep both unless silly money was offered.


1.) 04 Jan 2018 18:37:30
Arfield would be a good signing for us has played at a high level for a few years

2.) 04 Jan 2018 19:20:03
Agreed controller. He would be the best central midfielder in the country in my opinion. Never understood why Strachan never called him up to the national team.

3.) 04 Jan 2018 20:51:38
Posted about arfield being out of contract a week or so ago and always a player I've rated as a potential target for us

4.) 05 Jan 2018 12:46:36
Stuartac, i like your use of players but Dorrans is out between 6/ 8 weeks.

5.) 05 Jan 2018 12:54:55
I watched Scott Arfield play at old Trafford on Boxing Day and he is a cracking player. Reads the game well
And solid in the tackle

6.) 05 Jan 2018 13:09:47
Stuart i'm pretty sure he chose Canada over Scotland.

7.) 05 Jan 2018 13:18:10
Arfield plays for canada?

8.) 06 Jan 2018 13:08:55
A guy who is getting a lot of game time with a club currently flying in the EPL, putting him to the front of everybody's mind and with a good chance of playing in Europe next season. Aye, he'll walk away from that to sign for us.



25 Oct 2017 22:01:51
Where to start.

Pedro has to go. I've defended him all season but enough is enough. Ryan Jack if guilty of retaliating should never play for rangers again. That's 4 red cards this season including the bounce game he's a liability. Windass is not a winger infact is he even a footballer? I think there's potential in that side but not with Pedro in charge.


1.) 25 Oct 2017 22:12:21
i have backed Pedro all the way, was raging after Sunday and try to not post too quick after a poor result while I am riled up. I reckon that's the curtain call for him now, like you say though Stu he is only part of the problem. Windass and Jack were my thoughts exactly before I saw your comment. Windarse has the cheek to say he doesn't have anything to prove, spot on mate, you don't because you will never be good enough for the jersey. Actually makes me angry now seeing his name on a team sheet. Jack is just a moron, reacts when folk are going to go out their way to stir trouble with him. On one hand we have a team of pansies with no fight at all, in the case of Jack he thinks passion is by being an angry little pr1ck. Actually despairing at the state of our club, if only the manager was the only issue but we are bloody full of them

2.) 25 Oct 2017 22:16:02
Did clubfoot not con the ref. just left before never saw it.

3.) 25 Oct 2017 22:16:45
Windass is awful and should have been moved on summer. Jack has been another disappointing signing who can't control himself. The rest not fit to wear jersey. PC was a monumental blunder. Out his depth. Too many failings to list. Should do decent thing and resign but he wont. King must act now and find money to get rid of him and appoint the right man to take club foward. No risks like pc

4.) 25 Oct 2017 22:19:36
Let's see what a manager with a bit of nous can do with these players.

Apparently 10 of the players that started for Celtic tonight were signed by Ronnie Deila and they apparently destroyed Aberdeen at Pittodrie. I'm not saying our next manager will be able to do the same but most of these players can obviously do better.

5.) 25 Oct 2017 22:57:38
We (celtic) were really sharp tonight and clinical.

Aberdeen, supposed challengers were very poor.

I will never tire of watching my team win and I'm all for a bit of a laugh but the best of the rest, ie Aberdeen, Rangers, hibs etc need to start improving to liven this league up a bit.

6.) 25 Oct 2017 23:12:45
Naz 10 of the team that beat Aberdeen weren’t even signed by deila



08 Sep 2017 21:42:25
I remember years ago (possibly 90s) we linked up with a club in asia. Just been talking to a mate about it and neither of us could remember the details. Anyone help us out?

Shenzhen from China i think you might be referring to mate. i remember Santa got me the strip for Christmas 1 year. sure it was an Orange top and Grey shorts

2.) 09 Sep 2017 08:10:25
I think it was early 2000s stuart but i may be wrong

3.) 09 Sep 2017 21:33:36
Cheers lads I'll look into it. Shame we couldn't link up with a Chinese team now. Haha

He got a standing ovation for his over all play. Holding it up, winning free kicks etc. Yes he missed two sitters but he gets into these positions. The second header was poor but the first wasn't his fault. Keep it low and into the corner. That's what he done and Gordon made a great save.

Why do you think we need more than 6 players? People seem to be getting carried away with this celtic team. Their centre halves are brutal, their right backs are brutal, left back is decent, wingers are no better than average and it looks like Sinclair and Roberts will be away. Brown, ntscham and mcgregor are average at best, rogic and the three strikers arw good but there's talk of rogic leaving, dembele will likely be gone and edourd is on loan.

They also have a summer of rebuilding on the cards and i can't see them replacing the players that will leave with better players unless its more loans as they won't spend £6m or £7m x 4 or 5 players.

We need two good centre halves. We need a strong central midfielder and Arfield and we need a 25 goal a season striker and hopefully Murphy deal made permanent. that's 6. If we bring in that along with maybe 2 or 3 loan guy's to bulk up the squad whilst getting rid of some deadwood we will be much closer.

Surely going to the game you don't base it on being a 70 minute match? Boy infront of me leaves on 70 minutes every week without fail no matter what time KO is. This includes the game against celtic when we were 3-2 in march and games 8 or 9 years ago when we were decent and winning titles. I don't get why youd pay £500 a season then bus/ fuel etc every second week to leave when a game is close with loads of time left. I could maybe understand if we're 3 up or 3 down and you've got plans but come on.

Murphy a stand out? i'm sorry mate but I I thought he was rotten. I put it down to lack of match fitness but he's been poor in all 3 games. missed two good chances yesterday, so predictable and couldn't bear the first man with a cross.
