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.

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.

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



05 Feb 2018 16:48:52
Really worried about Saturdays performance as I too thought we missed jack and mccrorrie! More worrying for me is jack could be out for season after waiting a month before we realised he needed an operation, now hearing mcrorie to see specialist again this week I get a déjà vu feeling.

bgate w

1.) 05 Feb 2018 17:14:37
Let's just see if wee get a response v partick and hope murty can change a game when it's not going our way a bit earlier than the 70 minute mark

2.) 06 Feb 2018 15:01:08
If the game against Partick isn't going our way after 70 mins then we do have a problem! Heres hoping JW plays a blinder - c'mon the gers!

Does anyone think SG will promote any youth players and maybe even play them? If so whom?

bgate w

1.) 20 May 2018 13:27:50
Midddleton will be a shoe in for the first team squad he looks like some player

2.) 20 May 2018 13:28:40
For me and I've said this before Glenn Middleton hopefully will get an opportunity in pre season. There are a couple others I'd like to see get the chance but right now he sticks out

3.) 20 May 2018 13:34:56
Jamie barjonas must be about ready from Wat I seen really intelligent young boy and scored yest against Newcastle jets think it was in the HK7s

4.) 20 May 2018 19:25:12
There is also a young boy called Stephen Kelly. He’s is quite small but seems too highly rated atacking midfielder. Liam Burke well quoted and coming back from an operation. Has to be his his time next year or it may not happen

5.) 20 May 2018 21:33:40
Can't wait to see this lad Middleton quite a buzz about him



20 May 2018 10:49:15
Would like to see a few younger player's being brought in as wee need to be building a team for seasons to come. I do think wee need experience to guid the young guys though.

bgate w

1.) 20 May 2018 11:31:19
Rite bears let me hear who your all time great has worn the blue jersey am going to start with gazza the guy was my hero a true legend and a wish him all the best

2.) 20 May 2018 12:15:03

3.) 20 May 2018 12:47:27
Super Ally, Davie Cooper, Laudrup, Gazza, Derek Johnstone Barry Ferguson. so many heroes in light blue! I'm sure there'll be some new ones emerging very soon! 🤞#let's go

4.) 20 May 2018 13:00:17
Cooper or Super Ally can't make my mind up . If u had sid postion then
Keeper - Goram
Defender - Greig
Mid field - baxter or cooper
Striker - super ally

Sub - gazza

5.) 20 May 2018 13:01:38
awright smodgers hows tricks? aye gazza for me mate. also numan, goram and gio

6.) 20 May 2018 13:06:56
Gough or Ian ferguson and boy could we use them just now.

7.) 20 May 2018 13:18:15
No so much all time hero but I loved big Dado up front!

8.) 20 May 2018 13:40:48
Loved Willie Henderson as a boy. Such an exciting player and a gentleman off the park too.

9.) 20 May 2018 14:20:07
I'm not saying he's the greatest Ranger ever but my favourite is definitely Big Jorg. Loved watching him play.

10.) 20 May 2018 14:41:46
Colin Stein. He was immense!

11.) 20 May 2018 14:45:02
Big dado

12.) 20 May 2018 16:27:22
Big Hateley for me absolute legend

13.) 20 may 2018 20:55:47
best player in a rangers jersey. easy
brian laudrup by a mile

14.) 21 May 2018 02:01:57
Of the Gers I have seen play live, Gio always held a spot in my heart. The guy oozed class on and off the pitch, could play anywhere and was a stand out. Was so proud to see what he went onto achieve when he left us.

15.) 21 May 2018 02:04:42
Bilel Mohsni or Joey Barton. It's really hard to pick one over the other though.



14 May 2018 20:47:55
Really hope Gerard builds solid foundation from back, a gk maybe Danny ward 6ft 3 commanding presence at least 2 commanding CBS, a right back as jt has no competition a left bk if Wallace shown the door. Maybe rossiter will come good, jack will get fit and you have mcrorie. need two strikers maybe a creator/ winger. 8 or 9 players not ideal but needs must.

bgate w

1.) 14 May 2018 23:28:27
Apart from right and wrong sending offs jack was one of our best players, can play rb maybe if our mf is packed he'd be a good back up?



12 May 2018 08:42:59
With everyone's predictions that valves and cardoso will follow bates and martin out the door this leaves us with no center backs as mcrorie is clearly a midfield player. we will need to sign at least 3 the first two should be in the mould of skrtel, barfly? And maybe sign Ben henagen to push or cover them? Would like a left footed one though but we badly need aggressive CBS who are at least 6 ft3. Thoughts?

bgate w

1.) 12 May 2018 09:47:57
I believe we have Tomas Isherwood Of Bayern B on trial, around 6’ 5” and going by a recent profile of the player very comfortable with the ball at his feet and commanding in the air. He was linked with THAT lot in the last transfer window but we’ve managed to get him in on trial so it looks like the management are already putting the wheels in motion to get CB’s in, I know Skrtel is just a rumour and not very likely but if we get someone in with his experience and a new talent coming through it could prove a positive move, remember how good Danny Wilson was with Davie Weir at his side to guide and talk him through games! Without Weir I don’t believe he would’ve got his big money move to Liverpool and if we can get a few like that in and moved on to start making decent money from transfers we can start mounting a serious challenge to them across the city, I’ve heard over and over about big investment coming for the last 2-3yrs and it’s never materialised so unlessthat changes I think we need to use the model that’s served them so well in raking in big money for players who have cost next to nothing! Just my thoughts!

2.) 12 May 2018 10:41:36
I think that model is probably used by every club around. The problem is having the staff that are avlt to find such players.



29 Apr 2018 15:44:00
Should we shell out 1.8 million for Murphy or should new manager use this towards someone else? Yes I like Murphy but in big games against smelltic he has not been very good infact pathetic.

bgate w

1.) 29 Apr 2018 15:53:37
I thought it was 650thousand for Murphy is it as much as 1.8mill?

2.) 29 Apr 2018 15:54:26
i wouldn't take murphy no where near the class we require and he doesn't even make up for lack of class with fight

3.) 29 Apr 2018 16:25:04
He has failed his audition and can go. Bottle merchant against celtic.

4.) 29 Apr 2018 16:39:38
I would start afresh if finances allow it. There is no player who sticks out at the moment and that scares me. We have not moved forward at all. Cash in on Windass, Candias has been quiet since he signed a new contract. Cash in on Morelos, Tav, Fodergham. Return Cummings, Murphy etc. What a shambles

maybe we should remember these teams voted us out! I say starve them! But would doubt many of teams apart from smeltic will take a hit and reduce our allocation. Remember we are the biggest away support.
