I totally agree with Big J70. Not the Rangers way to give up. We have a good team. I think we are 2 players short. I left winger that can cross the ball, Wallace and Windass are good down the left but we need devastating deliveries into the box. I think were okay on the right but that's not to say it could improve. Our week point is the creative spark in the middle, if you could cross breed Niko and Dorrans we would have our man. Now the other problem IMO is KM, he is trying to be that spark which on occasion works but his touch let's him down a lot and when he's linking play or dropping deep it isolates our striker.
So imagine us in 10 games time.
1. we will have a left winger
2. Pena will be fit
3. Km will be a sub
4.The squad will gel
5. Herrera and Fredo will be strikers and not drop deep.
6. We will start a run of winning games
7.The other team will drop points.
8. We will be underestimated by all
9. We will prove them all wrong.
There is no alternative.

Good synopsis @TJBB of what we require - can you send to board and coaching staff. I just wonder if board are prepared to give more money to PC

Not looking at form or results just player v player. If you compare Celtic 1st 11 against Rangers 1st 11. I don't think we are far of matching them quality player wise, however I concede we have a way to go with regards fluency of play and each player being 100% and very confident in their own ability. Their squad has been together for a good few years now with no challenge to knock the confidence. Once they get their arses felt in the champions league groups and a few defeats in the SPl they will be there for the taking, I hope.

Trouble is mate as you say they have been together for a while most good teams have been! Look around Barcelona Madrid bayern they don't make wholesale changes ever year just add in a player or two! The spine of these sides have been together for years that's where our supporters need patience you can't throw 7/ 8 new signings into any side and expect to go and win titles against a unit that has been working together for a a while!


2.) 17 Aug 2017 19:55:45
We don't have any forwards in the same league as Sinclair, Dembele or Griffiths and bar Dorrans not one of our. midfielders could touch brown or Armstrong. We also can't add players like Ntcham. I hate saying it obviously but only 3/ 4 of our players would make their squad.


3.) 17 Aug 2017 20:14:53
NOT 1 player from your team would make our squad never mind first team and subs! Not trying to be funny just stating the truth.


4.) 17 Aug 2017 21:22:58
Chaps, I like Johny Hayes, no a bad player. However if he can get in the celtic team then surely all of the Rangers team could also. I will take my hat off to Cetic if they do well in the CL and if Armstrong and Griffith can perform at an international level on a consistent basis, again I will take might hat off, credit where its due they are good but how good. Until then realize the level these guys are at and don't get ahead of yourselves. I don't think any Scottish player is outstanding as they are not properly tested at a high level all the time. In the past both teams have had outstanding international players who produced at all levels, name some now in Scotland. Pena for Rangers if he gets back to his best and gets back in the Mexico team is one player in Scotland with real pedigree, Bruno no question but for how much longer. Craig Gordon would fit the bill. Kenny Miller I think is just shy of being outstanding, not scored enough. let's no get into a tit for tat slagging match, let's just hear other opinions from all sides and be sensible.


5.) 17 Aug 2017 23:56:50
Jonny Hayes would walk into our team. They just hammered Astana 5-0. Look i'm all for being positive but we still have a long way to go and expecting our team to be as good as Celtic is unfair. I think we underestimate them because we still remember how poor they played under Deila. But don't be mistaken, we are still a way off of Celtic but I would confidently say we are the second best team in the country which is progress from last year.


6.) 18 Aug 2017 00:12:28
Hayes is hopeless


7.) 18 Aug 2017 11:14:27
hayes for me won't get much game time this season as he isn't good enough to earn a place, usual celtic just buying the guys that might make them drop points

Jack on Stokes a red - no, yellow
Was Stokes a red on Tav - Yes
Was Stokes on Jack a yellow - yes. Was the ref wrong - yes.
Should we have lost - prob not.
Was Lennon inciting a riot - yes.
Im a angry - yes, still.
Take it on the chin - hard.
Move on - hard.
Petition - free country.
Pedro will use all of this to his advantage as Alex Ferguson used to. This will give the team the edge they were sadly lacking last year.

1.) 14 Aug 2017 18:32:00
Move on mate, we're all starting to sound like that other lot with the "everyone's out to get us" attitude and "the refs a mason" chant


We should be above these petty claims! Onwards and upwards


2.) 14 Aug 2017 18:42:03
Lennon was wrong to do what he did but incite a riot?

Really?

Personally I would be ashamed to waste police time by bringing Lennon's behaviour up. They have far more important things to do with their time like fighting real crime. Let the SFA deal with Lennon.


3.) 14 Aug 2017 19:06:06
I agree with you Naz, but it would only have taken 1 idiot to get over the wall at NL, and the media would have had a field day. He knows exactly what he was doing, he has previous, not just at Ibrox and needs to be reigned in imo.
Anyway that was last week!
Onward and upward


4.) 14 Aug 2017 19:45:53
bil72 Yeah he does need reined in but leave that to the footballing authorities. I'm not defending him but celebrating a goal like that really shouldn't concern the police.

As you say onwards and upwards. Hopefully.


5.) 14 Aug 2017 20:11:08
Naz

I agree mate the white le Lennon thing is a joke. He took pesters from the Rangers support and gave a little bit back to say it could incite a riot is laughable. What about the people who shouted and abused him? Surely we can't condone that behavior and language then run to the police because he reacts? Is that what our support has become now? If we are prepared to give it then be prepared to take it back


6.) 14 Aug 2017 20:14:44
You all miss my main point. This is fuel to our club. Alex Ferguson was a master of using this type of situation to the teams benefit. He had the Man utd team fired up to the point of paranoia and we all know how that worked out.
Re :Neil Lennon. Had a Hibs fan got pitch side for a few moments and repeated what NL done what would be your response. He is the manager of one of Scotlands top teams and should not behave in such a way. The Police have tough enough job without NL adding fuel to the flames.
PS. Remember Andy Halliday get booked and sent off last year for celebrating a goal towards the opposition Morton fans.
If Pedro was saying onward and upwards behind closed doors to the players I would be very surprised and disappointed. He will have pictures of Lennon mid pose, extracts from hating papers, a life size wax work of Sutton humping Broxy. If you want a winning team and mentality onward and upwards, take it on the chin and oh well, is how Warbuton acted, nice=2nd or in our case 3rd.
I know we all want the best for our club and I respect all of you opinions. I welcome any differing views.


7.) 14 Aug 2017 20:42:00
TJBB. I don't agree with some of what you've written and I can't agree with our new found paranoia - but the image you've put in my head re Sutton and Broxi made me laugh out loud.


8.) 15 Aug 2017 08:02:39
I reckon broxy would be the giver in that situation! !


9.) 15 Aug 2017 11:16:14
"PS. Remember Andy Halliday get booked and sent off last year for celebrating a goal towards the opposition Morton fans. "

Don't remember him being reported to the police, nor a riot breaking out.
Too many overly sensitive fans out there. You all sound like a bunch of weans. Grow up.

I want to apologize to all that have replied to my post regrading Pena, I don't want to waste our energies arguing over what the Pena saga is all about. let's get back just getting behind the club. What I will say a wee bit more info from the club would help to stop us supporters bickering.
Lets talk Hibs. I have a feeling as some have posted already they will do well this season and we mustn't underestimate the game on sat. NL will have them fired up and i think sat will be like an old firm game. I see all involved are playing this down in the media on purpose as they know it might turn ugly on and of the pitch. Stokes was a nightmare against us last time let's home we can nullify him. Top 6 for the season.
Celtic
Rangers
Hibs
Aberdeen
Motherwell
Saints
PS-do we all back Pedro or are some still not convinced, I like him but I liked Warburton so that shows how much I know.

TJBB

1.) 11 Aug 2017 10:39:56
100% behind pedro and the team, but this carry on with pena is getting silly, we payed 2.5mil on a player "who needs time" for whatever reason. I'm sorry lads but if we are paying that kind of money for a player then I think its a disgrace that he hasn't kicked a ball in anger yet.

When the Titanic sank, a small band of musicians refused to stop playing music and sank with the boat. Others on the other hand were pushing the women and children out of the way to get on a lifeboat.

Its only when things are not going right when we see peoples true character.

Keep the faith guys and don't get sucked into the negativity.

Rangers till I die.

3.) 21 Jul 2017 20:43:15
It's difficult to be positive after a 5-1 home tanking, lying down to your greatest rivals in a cup semi and losing your unbeaten home record to Aberdeen. Throw into that the shambolic and highly embarrassing Europa loss and fans are entitled to be worried about the direction the club are going under the current manager


4.) 21 Jul 2017 21:27:47
Whats the alternative winge like a weed or take it on the chin and get up again and again, drag your self to the finishing line even if your last. That's what this club is built on if your not up to that then support elsewhere.


5.) 21 Jul 2017 23:59:16
And what happened to the musicians?

I appreciate the problems I do hold a science honours degree. Would you fly in an aircraft that was 75% okay, let a nearly qualified surgeon operate on you, take a 2.5 million supercar out with no oil ans 3 wheels, let Donald Trump run the free world, rubbish no that ones true.
Why would you risk our most expensive player in a game that was won in the first 10 minutes just so we can see him injured or performs poorly due to fitness then all insundry can gloat, WTF
Sport science has come a long way since the 70s, that's why KM is still playing when he is 37. Ask yourself would that have happened 30 yrs ago. These guys are athletes and have to be looked after and only when the team working on him says he is mentally and physically ready will he play.

Coldo, 2.5million is SFA for a full top quality international. Yes he has strayed in Mexico, who wouldn't - crazy country. But he has traveled thousands of miles to fight with our club, he has no family, can't speak the lingo and knows nothing of our country and game. If you ask me that takes balls. Could we do that? Give him time he could be a superstar. If it doesn't work out it won't be for the want of trying. Only Let our enemies chip away at us, please support our club and players no matter what.
Anyone willing to predict top 4 for SPL?

Can all you sport scientists please post your qualifications when making the assumption he should be fit after 3 to 4 weeks. WTF do any of you know on his fitness level and how long will it take to reach a suitable level and how to achieve that. Or is it a case of get a sausage supper down you and get out there, boot the ball up and someone will head it in. Get a grip, the guys looking after one of our prize assets are very well qualified in their fields although I must admit they have no qualifications on conspiracy theories. I despair sometimes. If anyone follows this up have some effing knowledge.

Okay, Mike. Put a bit of meat on the bones. Who are the 3 groups of players that are not speaking to each other. Also I note your close relationship with 2 players has now turned to just a source. Also how about a bit of good news since you are in the know, are the new guys any good.

As far as FC Progrès Niederkorn goes, old news as far as i'm concerned but while were on the subject, please note they only lost 1-0 to AEL Limassol which have a squad value of 6.6m, similar to Aberdeen. They are obviously not as bad as the press make out. Their league is similar to the level of the Scottish championship and there squad is valued similer to say QOS at 1.7m. On their day against a team not fully match fit these teams can take a scalp or 2. We have no right to win any game of football, if we think like that we will loose, loose and keep loosing.

If this is true, I would imagine this may be caused by players who know there on the way out and are not willing to invest in bonding with the new chaps. Once the dead wood has gone and we have a few results this will be a thing of the past.
As for training being to complicated, again probably the dead wood not being able to adapt to technical football.
If KM has had enough then he does not deserve to be there. If KM left for Hibs, now, then he would never be welcome back at Ibrox IMO and will go from Rangers legend to snake in pretty short order.
However there was a big IF at the start. Mike Fisher, you sound like a delusional Hibs or Celtic fan (ny) or both.

I respect your analysis but it doesn't hold up to scrutiny. With a good knowledge of maths and probability then I must try and give positively to the support. If you show me a team that's won on average 1-0 and won the title then I will eat my words. As a scientist I understand probability, you can't beat probability unless you have messi in the team.

I am starting to get frustrated at people saying defense was and still is our biggest problem. It our lack of goal that cost us last season, look at the flipping statistics. We are always going to concede goals every team does but to win a game you just have to score more than the opposition. Last season because we only scored 1 or 2 goals per game if lucky then there would be a good chance of a late draw or loosing in the second half. This year we need to up the anti and score a minimum of 2 goals per game to reduce that probability of late draw. If we keep scoring the result will come. IMO we are not at full strength yet. 2 more to come. All league wining teams always manage to score no matter what, that's where we failed last year and this year we have so far scored - trust the stats and the results will come. Celtics wave of dominance will break soon as I've said before all teams look better and once Celtic get beat once then after that more defeats will follow at a more natural losing rate. It will happen, I guarantee it. Trust the maths man.
