That to me (bar worrell for goldson) was our true first team. Defoe and Davis will need to prove they are good enough to claim a spot.


1.) 28 Jan 2019 11:11:47
We lost our edge when kent went off. We need width👍.

2.) 28 Jan 2019 17:40:12
Finty tint Davis and Defoe don't need to prove anything what did arfield do that Davis couldn't do better.

3.) 28 Jan 2019 22:21:52
Momentum, if you have it why disrupt it.

4.) 28 Jan 2019 23:01:15
arfield had a hand in all 3 goals mate

i like davis and think he’ll be good for us, but for now scotty has the jersey.

5.) 28 Jan 2019 23:40:49
davis > arfield. Just me that finds arfield sluggish? Often caught on heels etc and just not a natural 10? Movemenr is laboured at the best of times for me. Davis is the best mf in the league if fit imo.

6.) 29 Jan 2019 01:34:10
We missed Arfield through suspension and injury in November time was it? And I remember we struggled without him. He’s not flashy but he is a link between Morelos and the holding mids. He’s also a hard worker and suits a high press.

He was unreal in the Old Firm game. Won his battles vs Brown.

What’s Davis shown so far to take the jersey off him? Don’t get me wrong I’m delighted to have both players. Strength in depth is key.

7.) 29 Jan 2019 12:48:03
Bear is right on this subject, as an Ulster guy I love wee Davis, but I wouldn’t drop Arfield if the guy is doing his job, Stevie Davis will have to earn his place on the field, and I’ve no doubt he will, he’s a class act.



28 Sep 2018 22:41:03
With regards to the striker situation for semi final. I could personally see him forming a rotating front 3 in a 433. Middleton/ kent/ grezda being my choices as its obvious by gerrards comments that sadiq is not getting on the park anytime soon.


1.) 28 Sep 2018 23:33:10
I like the way you are thinking fintytint 3 rapid and skillful players, I think they would cause havoc.

2.) 29 Sep 2018 11:07:17
Candias has to play.

3.) 29 Sep 2018 17:51:08
Fintyfint, exactly what I said two days ago.

4.) 01 Oct 2018 12:56:00
Candias has shown nothing this season to suggest that. Been poor more often than good.



08 Aug 2018 12:43:53
I think at 6pm tomorrow gerrard will know if he can get anyone else from liverpool ie solanke.


1.) 08 Aug 2018 20:50:27
Fintyint i'd prefer the two Bosnian lads signed instead of loan deals.



02 May 2018 10:18:41
Hate doing this but I was told by someone that seems to be in the know. That yes Gerrard is coming and that King is stepping back to just be on the board and be a shareholder. Investment is coming from USA. No idea who, no idea how much. didn't have much time to speak to the guy. He did say its expected to all be done within the next 2 weeks so am assuming end of season. Just passing on.


1.) 02 May 2018 10:35:25
We all have our own assumptions of King but he is a very astute and competent businessman. Can't help but think there is shrewd reason as to why he's missed the share deadline and is there a bigger picture regarding what you have mentioned.

2.) 02 May 2018 10:49:16
Letting himself be dragged through the courts in SA for years due to his tax dodging wasn't very astute. And his dealings with the Takeover Panel haven't been very competent have they?

3.) 02 May 2018 11:21:44
We've met to have huge investment for the for the past 2year n still waiting lol

4.) 02 May 2018 17:59:45
And an astute business man would have money king has stood up in a court of law and says he has none. So he's either skint or a conman. No room for either at our club in my eyes

5.) 02 May 2018 19:56:01
What do we all think will happen if big investment is made in our club? That the investors are just putting money in because they have a few quid spare in the bank and won't miss it? If the stated 25-30mil investment is coming what is it going to be brokered against. That is my only concern. An for that matter i'm sure that 30mil wouldn't be far off what would be needed to buy our club at this point in time. i'm not buying into this whole situation.



19 Mar 2018 13:49:37
I think something you have to realise is that managers like steve clarke and tommy wright. Don't have opposition sitting with 11 men behind the ball setting up banks of defence. Rangers and celtic do. Did Steve Clarke make an amazing tactical change in the game to re address the game play? no he had his team set out one way, defend first and foremost then try find a goal. celtic can dominate play with there midfield so its a lot harder to score against them if you don't have the ball. We try it but can't do it.

I don't think Murty is the answer but I am not demanding him out. Possibly the main reason is who the hell can we get that will fill his place? and be a guarantee top manager? If there is money from the share issue. Forget getting players in first. Spend it on a manager. A great manager can work with lesser value players to create something.

Sometimes I actually feel out team is set out too attacking. Unfortunately we are were we are. Maybe a lot to do with pedro or the board or the players I honestly don't know. All we can ask is that we finish strong being tenacious and carrying abit of luck.


1.) 19 Mar 2018 14:54:05
Steve Clarke

2.) 19 Mar 2018 17:23:50
So your answer to beating teams that pack their defence against us is to play less attacking? When we currently start every game with one up top? Strikes as a bit of an odd one to me.

The issue we have when teams do this is that we don't have players with the guile or a bit of magic to break them down. At the weekend, to a man, every player was waiting on someone else to do something.

Windass pops up with goals but is too often hiding. Murphy is trying and has ability, but constantly cuts onto his right, running in field right to where the numbers are. We need wingers that will stretch a back line and a number 10 that puts his foot on the ball and can play a cute pass to open something up. Either that or commit to two up top more regular and let Cummings and Fredo try to build a partnership.

3.) 19 Mar 2018 17:24:40
I remain all for graeme murty to be given a chance, to become our permanent manager, at the end of the season, on a 12 month rolling contract! I honestly don't see a gamble on doing that! However, if this board of ours does decide to change, they should look at the fantastic record of belgian manager preud'homme has! He has a very impressive CV and is very experienced!

4.) 19 Mar 2018 18:29:54
See these days Coop mate, I reckon youd be quicker listing the folk you don't rate ;)

5.) 19 Mar 2018 22:29:32
I'm really wondering now if supercoop is actually one of the other mob. We have not progressed one little bit bar playing some fancy football against non league and lower league teams yet he wants to persist with the current manager. Why anyone could be happy with the way this season has went I will never know and murty has played a massive part in that. We are in real danger in finishing with a worse points tally than last season which included some dreadful results and a change in management. I'm sorry but I'm not going to happily accept scraping to be 2nd best and that will continue under murty

6.) 20 Mar 2018 08:09:41

Think we will probably beat last years points however not by many and i agree about Murty we haven’t moved forward as some fans seem to think. He isn’t the answe and it’s astonishing some still can’t see this

7.) 20 Mar 2018 08:59:32
maybe I am overthinking but on TV after match Clarke made a point about saying his brothers were big Killie fans thereby distancing himself from the dark side which is the team I have been told the family support and have seen that on here.
I do not know the family at all but does anyone know for sure if he is from a Killie or Dhim background?

8.) 21 Mar 2018 02:30:44
Murty ain't the answer . Billy Davies. de Boer no. Eddie Howe Sean dyche young managers who. manage with what they have no big transfer budgets but bloody successful . dint they prove that week in week out in think. howe or dyche next manager

9.) 23 Mar 2018 10:39:57
Murty is a good coach and now we have a dof in place i see no reason to bin murty off i think its pretty obvious that Mark Alan is recruiting the players murty is doing a fair job i think he should be given a full season to see what he can do if we shed some dead weight and bring in a few good replacements i think we could hit the ground running starting from scratch again could be costly

I see a lot of comments about poor formation or poor pitch or boys not trying in last game and am not agreeing or disagreeing in a sense. But watching the game you can’t tell me at the start up to about 10-15mins we looked really good and I thought we were going to put a few past them. Passing was slick ball retention was good. Then we had a slip up and it seemed to spread through out the team. Like they noticed they were on an artificial pitch and it was bothering them, even though am sure they have one at the Hummel. Anyway. First 10-15. Gerrard had the tactics correct, but when heads went down he couldn’t seem to motivate from the side. Then we had half time, and I don’t know if you guys noticed but at start of the season we always seemed to come out after half time like a team reborn. Hunting and winning, we don’t have that atm for some reason. I think it’s wrong to blame a pitch personally, although I don’t think they should be in top flight football I do understand the need for them. I think his tactics were working but a mistake threw the team and he couldn’t fix it. His subs were reactive rather than proactive. Which for a rangers manager is not what’s expected. But am behind the manager, he needs seasons, am behind the team (bar Worrell. He can go home, £12million?!? ) .


1.) 25 Jan 2019 10:30:01
said in the live chat, the reason we started so well was we caught Killie out by setting up different to what they expected. Clarke theb adapted to match us and we then didn't do anything different. Lack on plan B or flexibility.

2.) 25 Jan 2019 11:04:22
Spot on comment Fintytint, we started well and never recovered from the poor goal.

3.) 25 Jan 2019 11:56:00
fintytint its been story of the season regarding subs

doesnt seem like he knows who and when to make changes. as you say reactive instead of proactive

always seems to make strange subs at strange times, also when we are behind i want more from a manager than jsut standing with hands in his pockets looking around like he isn't sure what to do.

Anyone else just want the window to close now, so we keep Morelos till end of season?


1.) 09 Jan 2019 10:40:59
Why the panic? Has there been any interest in Morelos yet?

2.) 09 Jan 2019 13:48:06
Am not panicking. I would just prefer he was still here after the window closes.

3.) 09 Jan 2019 14:33:39
Let's relax re Alfredo, he will go some day.
I see Brentford have put a price in excess of 20 million on Maupay as other championship ship clubs circle.
Therefore we should not be looking at less than 15 million for Alf, whether he is worth that or not is not the debate.
If Aberdeen want 7 million plus for a young defender surely a high goal scoring striker is worth much more.
Reserve players in England, i. e. solanke 19 million and odoi, 35 million . So hold out.

4.) 09 Jan 2019 20:07:11
Somebody's are is twitching, calm down alfrodo going nowhere this window unless crazy bid comes in.



07 Jan 2019 11:55:35
With Defoe and Davis in the door and no one away as of yet. How do you see SG playing them? Does someone drop straight away for them? . The team I seen play against celtic should be the first 11, but who would get dropped to let them in?


1.) 07 Jan 2019 12:59:38
Seen on a few pages morelos has not travled to tenerife. And his agent posted a tweet about exciting thinga happening. I have no idea. Anybidy else got info?

2.) 07 Jan 2019 13:23:55
Davis straight in Coulibally out. Defoe I think will depend what he shows in training.

3.) 07 Jan 2019 15:08:06
Paul86 COULD be the reason he is not on the flight MIGHT be because he was allowed to fly to Madrid then Tenerife. I do not know but plausible. He would then have had an day extra with his family.

4.) 07 Jan 2019 16:37:56
Well as yet the manks ain't done nothing. So fyar and window ain't finished Gers looking getting one of our own back which like new player and one more, plus possible Goalie back up, which personally think great move. Plus previous high profile influxes. That's at least five new players to their zero. If they think there so called settled squad is suffice there deluding themselves.

5.) 07 Jan 2019 16:38:32
What Madrid?

6.) 07 Jan 2019 21:37:10
Didnt they bring in ollie burke and the boy weah from psg.

7.) 08 Jan 2019 12:44:57
@original post- SG has said that he is happy to be replacing Sadiq and Ejaria with Defoe and Davis - that's 2 away.
plenty space for these guys on the team sheet. i expect the entire midfield to up its game to play alongside Davis. or even better, try to keep him out of the side.



07 Jan 2019 10:18:06
Dislike if you like but personally I like when sutton shows his colours, I think if a commentator has a team then show it, the banter that goes along with following us, them, hibs hearts, aberdeen or any other team is great. I much prefer when my mates meet up and a few of my celtic mates are there. Bragging rights are everything in that and we all have a laugh. But this threat to Sutton is a disgrace absolute disgrace. There have been threats to many players over the years and it is disgusting. Football is life to many of us but that doesn't mean the opposite for anyone that doesn't follow our views or team. I don't care what celtic or any of the others have done I care what our, don't want to call them this but, fans do. and they are not fans of club that do this. My friend made a comment about his brother in law. who is a celtic fan. he said 'you know he hates us more than he loves celtic'.


1.) 07 Jan 2019 10:34:09
Don’t you think it’s a bit funny and a bit of a coincidence that this has come out days after Beaton got threats from the mankies . am afraid I am not swallowing it at all . griffis . Lennon . Sutton . all poor victims butbit didn’t stop Griffis standing in our ground waving a tricolour or blowing his nose in our flag . of course some nutters will be offended with the way they conduct themselves . ungentlemanly conduct? That’s a laugh.

2.) 07 Jan 2019 11:07:31
Mols so you think Sutton is lying?

3.) 07 Jan 2019 11:42:34

4.) 07 Jan 2019 11:51:41
Fintytint you are spot on. I have followed the famous GLASGOW RANGERS for almost 60 years. My father, grandfather and my whole family have followed our whole life. We have friends who are catholic and CELTIC supporters, but we get on fine. Remember there is a huge difference between BANTER and HATRED. Remember you don't have to hate someone who does not agree with you. Leave that to the idiots. As for people like Sutton, they love the oxygen of bitterness to live. JUST IGNORE HIM. END OF RANT.

5.) 07 Jan 2019 15:29:44
Hoof harted, i feel exactly the same way mate. I've supported and followed rangers everywhere, for 40 odd years now, as well as being a shareholder! I know exactly where you're coming from, as I also have celtic supporting friends, who are catholic!
I always say judge the person and not their faith or the football team they support! There's biggoted idiots on both sides who only want to maim and cause trouble! I love the banter with my celtic supporting friends and vica versa! The way it should be and doesn't stop you being actually a better supporter of your club, than the trouble making biggots!

6.) 07 Jan 2019 17:02:12
Flinty, your post suggests it was Rangers fans that had a go at Mutton.

Care to share your source of proof?

I was of the opinion that he was hated by most fans outside of the Methodome.

Jboy21 you can't compare anything to the souness era. We had players then at todays money would be closing in on the £50million mark. Players that could walk into man utd or the like. Woods, Butcher, Walters, Gough, Wilkins, Stevens.
Are our players better than last season? Yes. that's what you need to improve. Every season strive to improve.

I think tav gets more protection from having Candeias infront of him and candeias gets more support in the attacking third with tav, so seems a no brainer. Kent doesn't really cover back and win balls the way candeias does but barasic seems a more accomplished defender. I actually think its hard to split halliday and barasic except for the fact barasics balls into the box are superb and just for that he would start ahead of halliday.

I would suggest a set max weekly wage and a set max transfer fee, with a % of the transfer fee going to the football nations association putting money into lower levels and younger players.
Now a player could make a lot more money via sponsors but those sponsors can have no ties to the club he plays for ie if you sign for us nike will pay you an extra £20,000 if you wear there boots.
Say a max wage of £80,000 and a max transfer fee of £10,000,000.
The agents are getting silly money, i understant they get the paper work done but the money they command it stupid.

Yately mate come on, that was a nasty tackle. He didn't have to have his foot up that high, he was well ahead of fergusson to get the ball.
