Think the boy Kent when he gets up to speed will be a step up in class from candeias, I'd like to see him play down the right.

The boy Kent who struggled at Bristol?

2.) 21 Jul 2018 11:09:42
Rfcrb with the positive posts again 😂.

3.) 21 Jul 2018 11:31:44
Based on what bgate w?

Was DC probably not our best player last year. certainly one of the few who gave 100% and "sweated blood" for us.

4.) 21 Jul 2018 12:47:40
Because someone was our best player last year, does not make him good enough going forward.
Squad player at best.

Anyone heard about the potential spoken about investment coming from America? Or was this just a fruitless rumour?

bgate w

1.) 22 Mar 2018 09:20:52
Investment was mooted in certain circles but maybe more questionable now, unless of course such investment is being delayed until Andrew Johnston is passed as fit and proper?



24 Feb 2018 10:06:06
If Bruno is fit he should replace Russell martin as he is stronger in the air as hearts are a team that are good in the air! I also think he could guid and be a good influence on big batesy whom wins most of his headers and was blameless in last weeks sloppy goals conceded. Wes, tag, Batsey, Bruno, john, goes, doc, candieas, windlass, Murphy, and Buffalo.

1.) 24 Feb 2018 10:17:58
Holt should be back in

2.) 24 Feb 2018 10:46:27
Too big a risk playing Bruno, not sure would last 45 minutes against a fast physical Hearts side. Agree with Jzer would also start with Holt in this one.

3.) 24 Feb 2018 12:03:12
agreed i'd bring bruno back in

his experience and dominance in the air is what we need at cntr half.

i’m sorry but martins too hesitant and just not good enough in the air - we are leaking too many goals from
basic errors which is being overlooked as we are free scoring just now

holt back in for doc also a good move today

i personally wld be playing cummings over candeillas on the right of a 3 with josh and murphy behind el buffalo.

4.) 24 Feb 2018 12:07:08
Holt? Jeez what is wrong with you? Yeah Holt is a trier but he is simply not good enough for the gers. And whilst I’m here I’ll mention Bates in this too. Just not good enough. Sir Walter, the master of defence, always believed in vastly experienced centre halfes and for me, Bruno must come back in.



20 Feb 2018 18:26:37
Early days but I'm a wee bit worried about Russell martin his days as a right back probably behind him although comfortable playing center back I don't feel he is commanding enough and maybe not the quickest. With murtys comments about Bruno being an important player between now and end of season, I really don't fancy these 2 together with their lack of pace.

1.) 20 Feb 2018 18:42:53
Was the partnership of ALves and cardoso really that bad? I don't think it was and I'd rather have them two together then Martin and bates. But who ever plays Alves should deff get put back in in my opinion.

2.) 20 Feb 2018 19:00:06
Martin and Bates by far best option currently and for remainder of season. Martin did no have his best game at Hamilton but think the pitch contributed to that. Longer term Bates and McClorie the best partnership available.

3.) 20 Feb 2018 21:50:51
I disagree think Alves over Martin all day long and think cardoso will turn into a better defender than bates if he could get a run.

4.) 20 Feb 2018 23:29:49
Spoke to ex pro Gers man who stated Mark Alens wages are paid by a group of five millionaires.
He also stated that he has five players lined up for every position and its down to the manager who he picks .
Man city's loss is our gain, City just wanted to splash the cash and that is not Mark Allens game, we have def won a watch with him .

{Ed033's Note - Have you won an Omega?

5.) 20 Feb 2018 23:32:45
Would like to see Alves any day, could bring best out of Bates who just needs, fine tuning .

6.) 21 Feb 2018 08:38:44
Plastic pitches were the bain of our lives climbing up the leagues - some of our worst result (Alloa! ) were on these crap pitches.
Martin to me - looked like Bambi on the stuff - his clearance for the second goal took forever and eventually he fluffed it.
Templeton apparentyly done his knees in on plastic and now plays on it every second week - how does that work?

7.) 21 Feb 2018 11:12:34
I think McCrorie is a defensive midfielder and we shouldn’t be tinkering with his position.

8.) 22 Feb 2018 08:21:18

You surely aren’t blaming that awful loss to Alloa on the pitch? For 78 mins when we were 2-0 up the pitch didn’t seem to be an issue.



19 Feb 2018 22:27:03
Cardoso apparently not happy with lack of game time, that's fine but he must do better when given a chance. he has a decent touch etc but basic defending is poor, gets bullied too often and celebrates if he wins a rare header.

bgate w

1.) 20 Feb 2018 00:20:48
I’d give him a shot with Bates. Not been particularly impressed with Martin if I’m honest. 2 pantries given away already for handballs 😂

2.) 20 Feb 2018 01:01:54
Pantries 😂😂 obviously meant to be panalties**

3.) 20 Feb 2018 08:25:57
Cardoso has had his chance, he’s brutal.

4.) 20 Feb 2018 09:20:14
Martin was very poor on Sunday however both penalties were very harsh. How can it be deliberate handball when the ball was blasted at him from 2 yards? His reactions aren’t that fast to make it deliberate. Even more ridiculous was to get booked for it too

5.) 20 Feb 2018 11:59:04
Very harsh penalties to be honest but I still agree he hAsn't been rest and is quite slow but he is a smart player and reads the game well just afraid that he may be just off the pace of some of the Celtic players but cardosso is quicker but not as smart as Martin so what's worse?
I think mcrorie and Bates would team up well and if given this season to gel will brilliant together next season? Thoughts?

6.) 20 Feb 2018 15:12:42
To be fair both pens were really unfortunate imo. He is throwing himself in front of the shot in both cases. Not a lot he could do. I don't think Martin has done a lot wrong so far tbh.

7.) 20 Feb 2018 18:01:55
A good center back usually doesn't need to find himself lunging in last gasp in those situations.

8.) 20 Feb 2018 19:00:13
Guys love the optimism but calm down. Let's get the 2 games vs hearts and St Johnstone out the way 1st. I can see us dropping points in both games given how ropey our defence is. If we take 6 points then is the time to ramp up the pressure going into the game on the 11th.

I can see us going into the game easily 11 points or worse behind.

Now if we had a proper manager things may be different, then again we would probably be clear at the top

9.) 21 Feb 2018 11:27:20
Have to disagree bgate. When I played I was told by every coach to get my body in the way of the ball. Basic defending. Every one of the world's best defenders made a living out of it

What's everyones thoughts on sadiq umar i know he needs a chance etc before judgment. I saw him chase the ball down like usain bolt then when he got it turned and started to do some form of a dance move with his legs flapping around aimlessly which brought much laughter from the crowd. his next involvement was a turn and a shot on target. I'm no sure how he will do for us! Thoughts?

bgate w

1.) 13 Aug 2018 18:35:29
i have no idea how this will turn out, he looked like bambi on ice the way his legs were going, but really is too early to tell. in SG rates him then i don't have major worries.

2.) 13 Aug 2018 18:41:54
Am no sure about him either, looks as though he is going to fall over every time he gets the ball.

3.) 13 Aug 2018 18:51:42
I’m going to contradict myself here by saying he looked dross on YouTube but I never use YouTube to assess a player. I don’t think Gerrard does rate him or he would have started yesterday or even the Wigan game.

4.) 13 Aug 2018 19:19:05
Let's wait and see, I don't see him as a starter every week.

5.) 13 Aug 2018 19:22:54
Coldo -- you made me laugh at your description of Sadiq. Pure class. It was exactly what i was thinking. let's hope the lad turns out well for us.

6.) 13 Aug 2018 19:56:56
Bolt was going into football was he not? Has anybody seen him up close, like really up close to make sure it's not actually him?

7.) 13 Aug 2018 20:11:03
He’ll be sugar and rubbishe all mixed into one I think. Seems like the type of player who could score a wonder goal one minute then fall over his own feet and miss a tap in the next.

8.) 13 Aug 2018 20:43:33
Sadid = Modern day Ted Mcminn.

9.) 13 Aug 2018 22:02:25
He’s unorthodox. Similar to Adebyour. Jesus the guys runs differently and is tall and some have him pegged as a freak!

Disgusting. Let the boy be himself and be proud to be a Teddy Bear.

10.) 13 Aug 2018 22:05:19
Sadiq = Stretch Armstrong.



10 Aug 2018 11:00:11
Anyone think windlass will be replaced? If so by whom?

bgate w

1.) 10 Aug 2018 13:01:16
The 2018 hide n seek champion maybe? 🤔.

2.) 10 Aug 2018 13:29:54
I thought Windass was the 2018 hide n seek champ?

3.) 10 Aug 2018 14:51:40
Parky. That’s impossible mate. Windass is the 2018 hide n seek champion 🤣🤣.

4.) 10 Aug 2018 15:44:59
One thing o won't miss is people calling him windlass!



06 Aug 2018 23:09:22
Wee Ryan jack to miss a couple of games.

bgate w

1.) 06 Aug 2018 23:58:39
All because Stevie May plotting revenge Can't stand the player He thought he was better than he was Nothing but a flop that looks like he's been smoking weed all night on his couch!

2.) 07 Aug 2018 01:05:07
Last couple of games he’s been outstanding doing the dirty work and providing cover defensively whilst also giving the team something going forward. He’s going to be a big miss and I had McCrorie as a stick on for that role. Hope he’s back ASAP.

{Ed039's Note - I think the gaffer made a mistake by bringing Ejaria aria instead of mcrorie on for Jack at the weekend, we would have seen the game out in my opinion if that had been the choice)

3.) 07 Aug 2018 06:47:25
Agree 100% with you ED. We just had to see the game out and Mcrorie would have done the same job as jack. But it’s early days and the manager is still learning.

4.) 07 Aug 2018 06:55:41
There has been a lot of comments regarding Gerrard making the wrong subs and bringing on Ejaria and Kent etc.
But how do we know that he isn't forced into it by the agreements of the loan deals.
"they must pay in every game"
Liverpool have done this many times recently.
So before people keep criticising, how about keeping an open mind and consider they may be other factors at play.

5.) 07 Aug 2018 08:08:58
Gordon83. Because Gerrard would not sign players that he was forced to play in everygame. It makes no sense to inflict such bizarre clause over yourself in your first managerial post.

6.) 07 Aug 2018 09:35:38
Gordon 83 if that is the case we are doomed. Ejaria not good enough.

7.) 07 Aug 2018 11:54:37
I'm not convinced of either young boy from Liverpool yet. This is a project though and the permanent signings have been made where he felt needed it most, the defence. I think more attacking players will be bought in January if we get to group phase of Europa league if not then next summer. The loans are just a stop gap I feel as we can't spend 20-30 million in one window obviously.

8.) 07 Aug 2018 12:36:06
Brian tend to agree with u.

9.) 07 Aug 2018 14:30:19
Jboy, Mikeger. I am not saying this is the case, just saying that it could be a factor, and because we don't know, especially this earlier in a season, then we cannot criticise Gerrards decisions already.



05 Aug 2018 17:39:48
Yes sending off was soft, McKenna's barges were obviously missed! Why do players do these things to Alfredo? Well his actions are the answer to that question. Very disappointed.

bgate w

1.) 05 Aug 2018 17:52:38
well said.

2.) 05 Aug 2018 17:59:30
I agree he shouldn't have reacted but it's not violent conduct there's no force to it it's s petulant flick. Devlin has arfield by throat 2nd half shoving his head into his face as much of a red as that. And the pen is a stonewall red card not even a booking.



05 Aug 2018 11:03:42
Would definitely take barasic looks a good solid player, don't know anything about the boy Simpson though.

If barisic signs we could put Flanagan back to right back and that would give us a very solid back 4.

I don't question his work rate, which should be a given anyway and yes he's had a few decent games but in my opinion he lacks quality with the ball in final third.
