Just read that a second tier German side are interested in Senderos.
1.) 23 Aug 2016 13:17:35
They can have him.
2.) 23 Aug 2016 13:43:27
Just leaves us with a problem, transfer window won't last forever.
3.) 23 Aug 2016 14:22:13
I'll donate a tenner towards his ticket to Munich.
4.) 23 Aug 2016 14:28:02
what is it seven days of the window left we need to get the finger out so to speak.
5.) 23 Aug 2016 15:02:18
Understand why some fans want him - but he's got major fitness issues and has done for several years.
No point signing someone who will spend most their time on physio table.
That's ignoring whether you rate him or not.
I really hope we have something else up our sleeve.
6.) 23 Aug 2016 15:11:54
Is the window not only for transfers from club to club. Isn't there an extended one for free transfers?
7.) 23 Aug 2016 15:49:21
There is no window for free agents as far as I am aware?
8.) 23 Aug 2016 16:00:26
Mark I think if a player has been unattached during the window then yes you can still bring him in after it closes, however I'm not sure what the spfl regulations are as I believe you have to submit your final squad for registration before a certain date. Could be wrong though.
9.) 23 Aug 2016 16:01:15
Mr Nice who do you want us to sign? Clear that the lad Marriappa is waiting for Hull.
10.) 23 Aug 2016 16:53:55
mr nice I agree with u for a change i'd like us to get our finger out and get sum1 with pace and is a good cb.
why can't we get bougherra back or go for that lad kyle bartley who looked promising to me 5 years ago he will be 24 now and I think he is with leeds I think its worth getting bougy in at least u know he has the knowhow of the Scottish game and is very keen on coming back and would do so for very little money.
11.) 23 Aug 2016 16:59:23
The problem we have is that Kiran is woeful, Hill is past it and Wilson is consequently the lesser of three evils even though he is himself of limited ability. As a consequence we need at least one quality centre back and perhaps two. One of them needs to be strong in the air, able to read the game and ideally, able to organise the defence. Unless the same player is also quick then the second centre back needs to have speed. Mariappa would have been ideal but absurdly we appear to have failed to give him the deal that he wanted so we went for Lescott, (who is not as good a centre half), and what ever the reason he did not sign. So we are left with Senderos, maybe, (albeit that there is no guarantee that he will sign), or the two week links from last season and Hill. Not a very inspiring option if we are hoping to win or come a close second in the SPL.
We have until midnight on August 31st to resolve matters, (unless we sign a free transfer guy - and there don't appear to be many of those about other than the three that we have been dancing round)! The alternative doesn't bear thinking about unless we go to a traditional one centre back and use Crooks as a defensive midfield player in similar tradition to when we had Roberts and Butcher. The problem still remains that neither of Kiernan and Wilson come anywhere close to being remotely in the Terry Butcher class!
12.) 23 Aug 2016 20:25:24
I've said it before Tom. The biggest problem we have is warburton sees a player in Kiernan. Kiernan will get a game before Wilson.
13.) 23 Aug 2016 21:53:16
Sadly mark, that could be our downfall! Wilson was a good player when he was with us first time round. He made a mistake going to Liverpool although I sometimes wonder what part our owner at the time played in that given the hideous amount of money that we were offered for him.
He did look decent when at Hearts but was poor even last season, (although I can appreciate the comments from some that this has been down to the partnership with Kiernan) .
What I dread is how this partnership will shape up against Celtic, Hearts or Aberdeen and for me, Hill is not a realistic alternative.
Pur t simply, if Kiernan retains his position then I fear we will be embarrassed in a number of games. I hope I am wrong but I can't see it.
14.) 24 Aug 2016 13:42:07
Fd- I honestly don't know. The club will know through agents who is available.
I really hope that we have something else in pipeline. The delay in signing senderos suggests to me that they do and he is the option of last resort. Time will tell.
What I would say is that the answer to our defensive problems lies on the training pitch, not in the transfer market.
15.) 24 Aug 2016 15:41:16
Bartley is on loan from Swansea at leeds, Bougherra wouldn't be anywhere near what he once was and even at that he was susceptible to the odd mistake.
I agree Senderos might not be the long term solution, but i'd trust MW's guise, he's steered us through a decent market and in my opinion the only thing he hasn't addressed is that gap at the back. The way we play doesn't exactly help either with both CH's leaving a gap in between all the time.
16.) 23 Aug 2016 13:21:51
Times running out for us to get a decent centre back in now, surely senderos would pick us over a 2nd their German team.
17.) 25 Aug 2016 03:06:30
Do we all forget how kiernan and wilson played against manky mob in semi final. both were absolutely outstanding. difference that day was that they were afforded a bit of protection by ball. something that is badly lacking in every game. Every ball into the box is defended by these 2.with no help from the rest of the team. i'd be more worried why it takes us about 12 chances per goal scored rather than the odd bit of sloppy defending.
18 Aug 2016 22:23:27
Jim White says Garner medical tomorrow.
1.) 19 Aug 2016 10:10:57
Due in Glasgow any time today along with Lescott. Never been so excited in recent years.
2.) 19 Aug 2016 11:58:43
Evening times just reporting lescot deal is off due to family reasons.
3.) 19 Aug 2016 12:33:30
we need sum1 quick anyways, I heard that he was gonny be on big wages anyways.
4.) 19 Aug 2016 13:07:41
I don't understand a failed medical what could be wrong with him? It can't be fitness look at kranjcar he passed! He must have the clap or something :)
5.) 19 Aug 2016 13:26:12
If we get lascott and garner I'll be very happy lescott will have something to prove and garner will want to show he can step up a level so will be very hungry
We have asked for a CB and a striker and that's what we have got happy days
Barton niko rossiter dodoo and lescott maybe even garner could have all moved for more money so to me that proves to me they are getting the right message from the management team come here play infrount of amazing fans and be part of something special
And if we did win this league it would go down as the best ever
Garner will be a Rangers player he's got it in his name.
6.) 19 Aug 2016 14:31:03
Krancjar has talent.
18 Aug 2016 17:14:26
Apparently we may now need to till next week for garner deal now. This isn't half dragging on!
1.) 18 Aug 2016 17:38:40
Where'd you hear that? I assume he was so excited about coming he went on a 2 day bender and needs to wait on the class A's leaving the blood stream before hitting town for a medical!
2.) 18 Aug 2016 17:49:03
Just read this aswell, what's the hold up, anyone know?
3.) 18 Aug 2016 17:52:54
Daily mail article mate something about him changing his advisor don't know how much truth is in it though.
4.) 18 Aug 2016 18:02:29
Story iv been told is his agent was holding the deal up being greedy so he's sacked him.
5.) 18 Aug 2016 18:12:25
Read a few things about him changing his agent. Also reading that lescott will sign 2 year deal and that we have let Robbie Crawford has been released by the club. All the best to the lad.
6.) 18 Aug 2016 18:13:20
Would have been good to see him involved at the weekend.
7.) 18 Aug 2016 18:51:38
Looks like we will have to settle for Kenny for another week!
8.) 18 Aug 2016 19:13:09
Let's give Dodoo a chance, he has goals in him. We need to be brave. McGee thinks he has us worked out and Miller's lack of pace will not allow us to exploit their defensive frailties, Dodoo can nail them.
9.) 18 Aug 2016 19:26:12
Boys on football fone in say it's because of change of agent.
10.) 18 Aug 2016 19:37:42
Don't see MW starting Dodoo.
11.) 18 Aug 2016 20:36:32
Forfarger. I take it you didn't mean Crawford? 😂.
12.) 18 Aug 2016 20:48:39
No parky, was talking about garner mate 😂.
22 Oct 2016 17:29:02
Bears do you think MW will change it up like he usually does for the cup (Gilks Hodson MOH) or stick to his usual team.
1.) 22 Oct 2016 19:49:15
I personally don't see it but wouldn't be surprised. To be honest I'd rather see Hodson in the side. Tav has been fantastic but seems to have lost his goal threat this season. Wilson may be out so I'd go with a back 4 of Hodson Senderos Hill Wallace. Halliday Holt Windass with Forrester Miller MOH up top.
2.) 22 Oct 2016 19:54:17
Gilks maybe but I seriously doubt MOH will be in from the start. McKay Miller Waghorn will start.
3.) 22 Oct 2016 20:46:24
Got to disagree with Tav losing his goal threat as i think he looks the most likley to create or score which doesn't say to much abt us when he's our RB.
4.) 23 Oct 2016 00:05:24
If he changes the team drastically, ie putting in MOH, Hodson, Gilks, Foerster, Dodoo etc. and we get turned over in a horrible way, then there'll be a lot of questions regarding his team selection for the two games against that lot, to say the least and to be fair to MW.
In all honesty, if he was going to change it up for this one, ie going with the "cup players", like MOH, Hodson, Gilks etc. he'd have had a couple play at least some part at ICT.
It'll be the usual eleven, 4-3-3 we're used to. Windass likely in place of Kranjcar, who even if he wasn't injured, wouldn't have featured in some fans starting 11 picks for this game anyway.
5.) 23 Oct 2016 12:02:32
Bryan, tav has been fantastic but leave him out because he's lost his goal threat? 😮 ok if hodson plays I'll bet him for a hatrick.
18 Oct 2016 14:18:29
So bears where do you think Harry Forrester stands in our team seemed to have a great start to the season now he's made his way out of the starting 11. I really like him and feel he should feature more along with MOH.
1.) 18 Oct 2016 15:18:42
Would really like it if we organised 1 or 2 friendlys during winter break, it would giv players like Crooks O'halloran any others who have not had a chance to prove themselves and a chance for us to have a look at them too. Also hopefully nxt yr we will finish in a Euro place meaning we miss Lge Cup group phase, if so I would love to see Rangers bring back the Ibrox Cup Tournament. No matter what I feel the squad must begin pre-season earlier than we did this year. What u think Bears?
2.) 18 Oct 2016 16:43:26
we have 6 games in December? I'm sure we will have a few injuries and players will get rested these guys will get game time. once we win the league we can give the squad players a game too lol ;)
3.) 18 Oct 2016 17:46:40
Good on you cee. Brought a smile to my ugly coupon there!
4.) 19 Oct 2016 15:32:05
forrester has magic feet and can take the ball in tight spaces I think he had a big of a minor injury and was rested but hasn't featured as much because of it .
he would be one of my first picks. he plays with his head up like holt and that's a major factor for me I think he should start every game as long as he is fully fit.
that's what annoys me soo much we play three in midfield which is where our best players are even if u play 4 in the middle like ; forrester halliday rossiter windass there is still an abundance of talent there that could play there McKay holt niko kranjcar moh crooks.
for me that's the main reason that we won't get close to selik this year not having enough of our best players on the park because of a 4-3-3.
17 Oct 2016 11:11:29
Interested too see who you guys think we should go with at the back Hill and Wilson seem most convincing to me.
1.) 17 Oct 2016 13:55:46
Senderos and Wilson. Kiernan is terrible and hill too slow.
2.) 17 Oct 2016 16:03:43
no pairing is very good and none of the players have any pace .
3.) 17 Oct 2016 16:15:28
Wilson and another simple as that. Senderos doesn't have pace either so its the toss of a coin between hill and senderos to who partners danny wilson. that's the way i see it anyway! If pushed wilson and hill for me!
4.) 17 Oct 2016 18:06:31
Normally I would back any media ban by gers if they thought it was merited but in case of warbs not giving interview to bt it looks like he's showing that sutton is getting to him and I wouldn't give him the satisfaction.
5.) 17 Oct 2016 18:30:44
Wilson and hill for this week, think senderos could be nervous after last old firm! Would bring him in to side soon though as with a run in the side I think he can form a decent pairing with wilson.
6.) 18 Oct 2016 14:16:49
There's not a chance hill will play Hamden is a big pitch he's to slow we would have to sit in to deep they will just peg us in and pick us off but who nos who will start at the back.
7.) 18 Oct 2016 14:09:18
Jaws, sutton should never have got a job in media imho, the guy said dumfermline lay down to us (cheated ) any player that comes out with that sh. t its not like he was a good plsyer, he was on the ground more often than the ball, and feigning injury is as bad as it gets in my eyes, everytime he fell he cheated, every time.
8.) 18 Oct 2016 14:08:10
We are between a rock and a hard place. It is a case of Wilson and any one from three, none of which fill me with confidence!
9.) 18 Oct 2016 15:10:48
Bigjoh85 agree with you about sutton but just felt warbs played into his hands by not giving interview. It kept sutton in the news and that's what he's after.
10.) 18 Oct 2016 16:17:02
Id like to see Warbs bring in at least 3 loans 2 left sided attacking wingers and a CH wi pace.
11.) 18 Oct 2016 20:41:00
We all agree that pace is a major flaw in middle ogre defense, so if Crooks has it then he could be our answer. We just do not know how good flexible thus guy is but according to some he played CH numerous times and found himself highly rated amongst fellow players, kinda pulling my hair out about this.
12.) 18 Oct 2016 23:14:37
Jaws the only people that pay much interest in sutton are the supporters from the east end club, sutton, / hartson, guys like them will never be big shakers in the media, cause anybody that's seen either of them playing know they fell over if somebody looked at them, more grass burns on there knees, than carpet burns, lol, lol,
13.) 19 Oct 2016 16:05:57
hate to say this but I actually respect heartson as far as I can tell he always speaks the truth and has always been respectfull to the other teams actually sounds like he knows his stuff and he wasn't a diver players used to bounce off of him but spot on about Sutton he is a complete and utter tanker! lol -t+w.
17 Oct 2016 09:17:58
Morning bears was wondering if anyone could tell me the best public transport service to get to the game on Sunday is. Cheers.
1.) 17 Oct 2016 09:34:53
Train from lower level to mount florida.
2.) 17 Oct 2016 09:35:22
Train to mount Florida from central station.
3.) 17 Oct 2016 10:14:43
Cheers guys do we get on the same train as them?
4.) 17 Oct 2016 16:05:41
lmao i'm sure you will be fine big man!
and if u don't fancy it then go to the pub and give me your ticket lol.
5.) 17 Oct 2016 16:53:53
Not usually SA, they tend to go via Rutherglen and Aikenhead Road to get to Hampden.
6.) 17 Oct 2016 20:04:26
Why not all travel in harmony watch the game, support your team then travel back together, maybe stopping off for a pint to discuss the game . Not too much to ask in the 21st Century is it .
7.) 18 Oct 2016 14:45:25
Depends where your coming from lol stop rubbing it in that you have a ticket your best route is the star ship enterprise berm me down scotty.
8.) 18 Oct 2016 22:07:00
Do you think Warbs will stick wi Gilks for the Lge Cup also do we really think Warbs will go 4-3-3? honestly we know this is the system he truly believes in and ye never know but celtic do have pace our CH's not blessed and Hampden is a big pitch! EVERYBODY I've spoke to anything I've read and seen any half decent pundits all agree our back line needs more protection. So does he believe the players can play this system against them?
9.) 18 Oct 2016 23:16:30
Vincibhoy, if only mate, if only.
17 Sep 2016 17:15:23
first half thought we were excellent should've scored a hanful, second half we weren't so great nobody ever wants to get on the end of a cross and Barrie McKay seems to resort to walking pace 90% of the time not good enough positives to take from the game but the win was really needed today I fear the sheep now as if we lose there we are falling further and further behind.
1.) 17 Sep 2016 17:28:50
For me forrester is our most direct player why does feature is a mystery! Really need to become far more ruthless it's been a fault of rangers sides in many a year but this side has no killer instinct whatsoever and management need to take some blame for that as largely down to team being G'd up properly it's not just a teamtalk before kick off its a determination that should be drummed into players at every session and that clearly isn't happening! We are a soft touch!
2.) 17 Sep 2016 17:59:56
Barrie McKay is a waste of space based on this seasons performances!
3.) 17 Sep 2016 17:23:32
We will struggle until we have someone on the park to lead the side. Wallace is a disaster as captain. He is playing poorly at the moment and I do wonder whether the stress is getting to him. McCoy should not be in the team right now but he is not the only one!
30 Aug 2016 22:25:10
With the frees we are looking at they won't even last a season legs are gone with this boy we are getting a young fit fast centre back only problem would be lacks the experience Senderos would give you.
29 Aug 2016 09:58:27
That's a question I'd like to ask him myself bhoywonder!
26 Aug 2016 12:10:27
Like we would pay his wages.
23 Aug 2016 13:43:27
Just leaves us with a problem, transfer window won't last forever.
22 Aug 2016 10:36:26
Warburton said he wants 4 strikers we have 4 strikers now so highly doubt he will sign that donkey.
25 Jan 2017 08:17:32
These things can take time how do we know negotiations are not ongoing
14 Nov 2016 21:41:22
I would have hill and ohalloran in there.
26 Oct 2016 21:50:55
Though we missed Windass when he went off as much as I like him holt Isn't doing it for me.
22 Oct 2016 11:17:42
Think Liverpool let him go due to injuries.
21 Oct 2016 07:52:44
Absolutely gutting brings a lot of creativity to the team.
