as many people on here have already mentioned, Gazza's offield problems are unnacceptable but these were caused by an illness he couldn't control.

reading the guidelines for eligibility for induction to HOF it is purely down to your contribution to the game in Scotland or for Scotland national team, not being a role model, off field angel etc, so in this respect Gazza should 100% be inducted

however due to the fact the SFA are clueless they have once again shown they have no backbone, one of the greatest talents to grace our game won't be given the honour he deserves as a footballer

this is the same SFA that inducted John McGovern to the hall of fame when he never played for a scottish club or won a single scotland cap.

Jbf500, all rangers personnel should withdraw from the hall of fame in support of Gazza.



01 Oct 2018 09:17:14
now before all the haters comment, i have been a bluenose for almost 40 years so not a celtic fan pretending to be a gers fan on here to get a reaction

everyone including myself was excited by the SG appointment but let's be realistic here and ask has it really been a success so far?

obviously Europa league qualification is a great bonus but the league is our bread and butter and quite frankly can anyone be happy

apart from the St johnstone game what have we actually done? beat a very very poor dundee side, a st mirren side who have scored since august.

4 away games, 0 wins, 2 defeats and 2 draws

im sorry but this isn't good enough. Now we can all point at the Alfredo red card at aberdeen costing us the points ( and probably rightly so ) but the motherwell game was our own fault, the performance at the piggery was woeful and yesterday at the mighty Livingston was a disgrace. Plastic pitch is no excuse as they train on these daily at Auchenhowie

if this had been Pedro, warburton or even Ally then fans when would be in an uproar and asking for the sack

the fact that the manky lot are a shambles this season and are still above us and have still beaten us makes this even worse as we had a great chance to go and finally hit 55

there is not a chance we will win the league this season and sadly if our away form doesn't change then we won't finish 2nd

we have a better quality of palyer but sadly something isn't quite right and i think its ( unfortunatly ) SG lack of experience and believe the job is too big for him this early in career.


1.) 01 Oct 2018 10:37:28
So are you actually in a lot of words saying sack SG now?

Aberdeen away, very unlucky.
Kilmarnock away, good result (league cup)
Motherwell away, unlucky, lack on concentration
Celtic away, caught in headlights, and celtic played there best football of the season.
Livingston away, we were shocking, agree
Didnt over react when we were winning won't over react when we get beat.
Remember no one expected hearts to go on this type of run. Take them down to say 14 points and we would only be 3 short of top spot. Even without that we are only 3 points off of second.

2.) 01 Oct 2018 10:47:07
What aload of nonsense! We are in the group stages of the Europa League, semi final of league cup and Gerrard has only been here for a few months and had 1 transfer window give the guy a chance fs.

3.) 01 Oct 2018 11:15:22
I never expected us to win the league and neither should anyone else have. I also never expected European football past August. So, in that regard SG has already surpassed one of my expextations. As for the former, you really need to get out of this short-term mindset. I expect the players and SG to grow and learn as the season goes on and to secure 2nd place. Then, I hope that next season the experience gained from this year allows us to make a proper fist of a title challenge. I think this is quite a reasonable mindset so perhaps you should adopt it too.

4.) 01 Oct 2018 12:00:22
A very well thought out and reasonable post so72. I just don't get this knee jerk reaction after every bad result. It would be different if there had been no improvement but quite clearly, as you highlighted very well, that is not the case.

5.) 01 Oct 2018 12:18:17
Motherwell wasn't unlucky. Rangers never got out their own half in the 2nd half of the Motherwell game.

6.) 01 Oct 2018 12:27:09
firstly i should have stated that no i do not expect SG to be sacked and i did not expect us to win the league this year. i am purely highlighting the fact that if this had been anyone else the vast majority of our fans would be calling for the manager to be sacked. If this had been our league form over last 2 season we would be 10 points behind celtic at this. do you think that's acceptable after 7 games? we are just lucky they have been poor but that won't last the whole season and sadly they are going to pull away

As i said Europa league is a bonus but it shouldn't detract from our terrible league form

Finty as i said the aberdeen game was unlucky, motherwell we poor it wasnt unlucky

36th Ulster your point on Europa league is moot and semi final of league cup isn't a great acheivement when you look at it as 2 games, 1 of which against a championship team ( yes the killie game was good )

my point about Gerrard and the job being too big too soon is down the tinkering with line up and not having the tactical experience to change things

he makes too many changes to line ups every game ( some enforced ) but why make the changes he did yesterday knowing how well Livi have been playing. try keep a settles side and let them gel and flow.

7.) 01 Oct 2018 12:33:16
Hahahahahahahaha unbeaten in Europe after 9 games and he's to go already.

I knew this was coming after yesterdays performance, utterly pathetic and beyond fickle.

8.) 01 Oct 2018 12:47:59
SG is a fantastic signing and I think he will get it right. However he needs to start games playing to our strengths. Back 4, 3 in midfield, 2 wingers and someone through the middle.

He changed the tactics for both Livingston and Motherwell and it has cost us points. Against smaller teams we need the first goal and we need to set the tempo right from the off. We were far too slow yesterday and didn’t win a second ball.

9.) 01 Oct 2018 12:53:47

It's a reality check which I think we all need from time to time. I've said before on here it will be these games that are the differences between winning the league and not.

To me we have a stronger squad than last year that will challenge for the league. Europa League qualification. but the biggest thing is I other than Motherwell and livi yesterday am back enjoying and looking forwards to watching our team play. We are forgetting where we have come from.

its a new team SG is a new manager who will get some games wrong and all teams will play their cup final against us. We're playing 2 games a week. But I think we shake it off get behind SG and our team and start talking about Thursday.


10.) 01 Oct 2018 13:02:53
We have lost only twice in 18 with a new side and players and a manager who do not know the league. They are finding out that any team in Scotland that we come up against try so hard to beat us. That fact will never change and the new well played players have to understand that the livingstones and motherwells of this world with so called lesser players will fight like there is no tomorrow against them so anything less than 100% won’t do.

Whether we win the league or not I don’t know at the mo however the league is more open than it has ever been so teams will beat each other through out the season it’s just a winning run that we need to catch up with those above then sustain the performances, digging in when required.

SG is doing a great job and will get us back where we belong.

11.) 01 Oct 2018 13:57:00
I'm not sure if this jbf500 person is entirely sane.

12.) 01 Oct 2018 15:02:45
Hearts odds got slashed from 40-1 to 16-1 over the weekend. Fingers crossed we can change that again this coming weekend.

13.) 01 Oct 2018 15:07:43
Jb, you are right but expect numerous disagrees on your post.
I have already said previously that I think we and the media have over hyped Stevie. Although it's early in the season it looked like we had a great start with him compared to the last lot of managers.

If it's true that he has warned in the papers that the players have to sort it out, this has taken me by surprise as he has to remember it's HIS and the COACHES job to sort it and the players out.
If things don't improve in the next few SPFL games I feel you will have been justified 100% with your post.

14.) 01 Oct 2018 17:24:01
Jeez guys n girls we need to calm doon pedro got us put out of the europa league at the start of july last year and kept his job till the end of october so now rangers loose to livingston now there's people calling for steven gerrard to go

Absolute nonsense at the start of the season everybody was happy to close the gap on celtic but now we've done well in europe were expected to win the league

Lets just back the manager and his team.

15.) 01 Oct 2018 17:44:19
Pedro and Ally embarrassed us in Europe. Warburton never got that far. Its wrong then to compare our reaction to their failure in the league to Stevie's slow start.

16.) 02 Oct 2018 18:56:51
jbf500 just out of interest who do you think should be our manager then?



30 Jul 2018 12:35:24
so Cardoso contract terminated by mutual agreement

will clearly go back to Portugal, what i don't get is instead of terminating why not just tell interested teams 100-200k? least get something instead of tearing up contract at a loss to us.


1.) 30 Jul 2018 13:14:36
You can tell other clubs whatever you like, it won't make them want to pay out cash for a marshmallow centre half. I'm sure that if any interested party had come along we would not have been difficult to deal with. There probably were none. Our problem is we've had years of buying unsellable players but now, hopefully, that's in the past.

2.) 30 Jul 2018 14:00:52
He will probably have a decent career and won't surprise me if he eventually ends up at a good Portuguese club, Scottish football was just too physical for him.

3.) 30 Jul 2018 15:22:21
I agree that releasing him wa the right move . If he had stayed until sat January he would have been collecting a wage of say £10k a week for 4-5 months . Then even if you sold him for the £100k quoted you would still be well down . Right to get rid just now, with maybe a few others to follow .

4.) 30 Jul 2018 16:03:14
Cambiger imagine if he had stayed till end of contract, two years at 10k a week one million.
Let him go, with no pay offis good business, sure he will be picked up with signing on fee spread over contract. Beats paying 50% tax on deal here.



11 Jun 2018 14:46:43
must admit i'm a little shocked that Ben Marshall hasn't been linked with us. a player i think would be a great signing

Wolves happy for him to leave and only looking to recoup the 1.2m they spent

Was a standout for Millwall last season.


1.) 11 Jun 2018 22:51:34
No more championship or English lower league players end of.

2.) 12 Jun 2018 12:30:18
we don't have the money to buy from the bigger leagues around Marshall looks a decent player for that value



06 Jun 2018 09:40:43
a name not many will be familiar with but Stevie G could do worse than looking at AZ Alkmaar winger Alireza Jahanbakhsh. 22 goals, 11 assits last season. in 33 games

involved in a goal every game, AZ not a rich club so could get him for 1-2m i'm guessing

would be a great signing

check him out and he's at WC with Iran

remember the name.


1.) 06 Jun 2018 10:33:24
Transfermarket quoting 7.2 million for the player, way out of our price range.

2.) 06 Jun 2018 11:13:09
and you believe the figures on that site BlueBoy? get him for a fraction of that cost, maybe 2-3m max

3.) 06 Jun 2018 11:42:57
His stats sound excellent but look at some others that had good seasons in Holland at clubs like AZ, Herenveen etc over the last few seasons clubs down south or in Germany snap them up for a small fortune, sure there will be clubs sniffing around but like you say mate if there is the off chance that he's affordable could do a lot worse

4.) 06 Jun 2018 11:50:16
Marius Wolf ( highly rated Left Midfielder ) in Germany who’s valued at 9 Million On transfermarket got sold to Broussa Dortmund for only 4 Million. that’s half off his valuation so my point is jbf500 is right! don’t go by vaultions on transfer-market we cold easily get him for 2-3 Million. would be worth every penny really talented prospect sadly doubt we will get him. probably move to Germany or Italy we’re a lot off Dutch players head to

think Gestede would be a decent singing, different to what we have. Hada good spell at Blackburn a coupel years ago and didn't quite cut it at EPL but reckon the physical game in scotland would suit him.

kids got bags of potential. this is the kind of signing i like.

iv said it before but rossiters problems are the same as Wilsheres

they were playing mens football when they were still boys, and small boys at that, they hadnt developed into their bodies yet and the rigours and strains at a time when thier bodies were growing. Once you get one bad injury at that age its enivetable that you will get more as your body compensates and puts strain on other parts

sadly i think it will be 3 / 4 years before JR is able to put a string of appearnces together.

think someone pulling your leg Stewarty

as you said will be on ridiculous wages as was once in china, nowhere near the player he was for 2 seasons at milna and nowhere near suited to style of scottish football

i would be astounded if this is even a converstaion SG is having.

have to remember when he was at UTD with fergie he was a kid, given the area he grew up in and his families background it was no surprise he went off the rails

hopefully he has grown up a bit and realised he's running out of chances

if he was to come to us it could be a masterstroke.

id like to think that our scouting system is looking in all countries regardless off Alfies success

but on flipside our other south americans ( herrera and pena ) were garbage so never a cert

scandinavia is the market we should be focusing on in my opinion. leagues are physical like spl aswell so better to judge guys against hammerthrowers.

Tav should be moved to right mid with polster in at right back ( from our current squad ) and take armband off him for a real leader

he brings a threat going forward and has more assists in league than any other player this season

get of his back, he's not a great defender but if you look at group stage stats of europa league he's was in top 3 defenders in whole tournament.

one of the biggest problems is we don't have a real captain or someone in the changing room to take a grip of him and sort him out

you reckon guys likes gough etc would have let him act liek that after 1st red of season?

02 Apr 2019 08:31:33
agree with you i wouldn't play him again this season. and that goes for worrall, kent, lassana

neither of them will be here next season so let's give some game time to katic, middleton, atekeyi etc

these guys are our players and we need to see if they are upto the job.

LH86 take the blinkers off for a second fella.

done no bad? his team were out played by team men for the majority of the 2nd half and he had no answers. was a mistake by us that gave you win.

i have many scpetic fan friends and they agree mate.
