just watched second half on some Brazilian channel, we looked very impressive, high pace, high pressing game, four excellent goals (haven't said that for a while! ) we definitely dominated possession, let's keep it up!

Can anyone tell me the last time a Rangers side came back from 2-0 down to win a match?

Dodoo never given a fair crack of the whip by the breadman, let's hope Pedro can see something in him and gives him a chance, must have impressed today,

I would play dodoo over garner every day of the week. One plays football the other just runs about causing mayhem


2.) 09 Apr 2017 19:04:31
Dodoo is a natural, play him and we will get goals. Good also to see young Bates and Beerman come thru without conceding.

God dodo has one descent cameo and now he is the best in scotland


4.) 09 Apr 2017 20:30:21
Sorry Cee that's an over reaction. It's actually his second decent cameo (first one v. Thistle) but that's more of a sign of him being ignored a lot of the time. By the way who on here suggested he's the best in Scotland?


5.) 09 Apr 2017 20:31:17
I think he has had two decent cameos the other one was the away match v Partick Thistle.
If given the chance to feature regularly Dodoo will score goals as in my opinion he is a natural finisher.


6.) 09 Apr 2017 20:42:24
cee, Miller will be the rangers player of the year this season! Total thoroughbred and top professional, big game player who scores important goals in THE BIG games! Has to get another 1 year deal? We're fortunate to have him!

Living down south, have listened to many matches this season on the radio. Its getting monotonous now listening to us being second to every ball, no fighters in midfield, and apparently no management at any level who can't see this. This is on top of the need to sign good central defenders 18 months ago. I dread it when I hear the opposition are swinging another ball into our box. When will someone at the club wake up and sort out these problems!

2 CBs def won't sort the mess out. Having 2 FBs who sit in and tuck in when required won't sort it either.
Our midfield is root of problem, they are too lightweight and just not good enough. they can't keep the ball, when they lose it they can't win it back, they offer zero protection to defence and they definitely don't add to our goal tally!
Back to basics shape wise is needed asap.
3-5-2 or 4-4-2 with little complications. aye the movement was nice to watch against part timers but it's completely ineffectual now if we can't put the effin ball in the net and keep clean sheets.


2.) 20 Feb 2017 22:00:02
You watch any possession based team. You see them pressing as a team, winning the ball back high up the pitch, Overloading the wings. midfielders making runs beyond the strikers. We literally do none of that. Instead we lose the ball and usually it ends up in the back of the net or a goal kick. Rinse and repeat.


3.) 20 Feb 2017 23:12:58
Totally agree. Sundays match highlighted it perfectly. We were second to every ball, casual in possession, edgy and nervy, Haber won every ball in the air, no fight, no spirit, no skill, too many posted missing. Apart from that we did well imo


4.) 21 Feb 2017 00:35:19
Should have brought back Boughie when he offered


5.) 21 Feb 2017 00:39:20
No matter the system, our players' hearts must be bursting out their jersey, when they take to the pitch. They must be disciplined with a will to win.
What we have are imitations of players, who are only interested in what is in it for them.

I honestly believe that until we have a manager that can instal that mindset we will never be a force.

In my travels over 60 years supporting our club, I have grown up with some of our greats, I played in the 60's with our youth team [ Drumchapel amateurs. ] and had the pleasure of training at Ibrox and playing a couple of games.

However, a big regret was that I was not good enough to wear the jersey. Many of my mates were, but as the years go on we are losing them and, all the while, we have a group of imposters that are supposed to be idols for our youngsters.

Watched that on TV last night,the commentators were right, we were a shambles. I have been in favour of giving warbs a chance, but it was obvious 18 months ago that the defence was the weak point and nothing has changed. They started like it was a training kick about, no pace, not trying to pass forwards, and the same players making the almighty cock-ups. If warbs can't see it then god help us, we'll be lucky to get 3rd at this rate

Listening on radio from afar today, we definitely need a midfield general, and he must get some central defenders who can defend, I think he has to drop the 433 formation as well.

scotty_dog

1.) 31 Dec 2016 15:48:54
We didn't play 433 and its nothe centerbacks that worry me its guys like tav and halliday not following runs that cause problems! And the biggeat problem of all is regular punters like us can highlight the threats from celtic yet nothing is done to counter it! No one against Sinclair (there biggest threat) no one close enough to dembele when balls played into him and no one tracking Armstrong from deeper! Basic mistakes that never seem to be addressed.

Bluechef, Morelos cannot play the lone striker role, I agree with you, he has needed someone up there with him the whole season. The set up of the team needs seriously looking at, the goalie scares me to death, we need four defenders that can defend, and midfielders that can play a bit and take control of games. We are too slow when in possession, all of these sideways passes let the opposition re-group all of the time.

I can see why the defence is getting criticism, letting three in yesterday, but the man I worry about at the back is Fod. He seems to get beaten by long range low shots consistently, and hardly ever comes off his line. A big lad like him should be commanding his penalty area. Maybe that's the way they coach them now, or has he not got the confidence to try and collect crosses. Other games he has shown some brilliant shot stopping ability at close range, but he does let himself down with crosses into the box.

Pullis's recent record at WBA doesn't make very good reading, 3 wins in the last 25 matches!

I agree with most of your points, I just wish that we had full backs that could defend instead of attacking, time and time again opposition teams, all of them, break out of defence, punt the ball up the wings into acres of space, and there's not a rangers full back to be seen, then its a ball into the middle and we are under pressure again and look like conceding. Morelos definitely needs another striker in the box with him as well, then we'll see more goals from him

You are quite right there, just hope that whatever happens this season, someone at the club decides we need two sign at least two central defenders this summer. Also when watching the highlights lately Wallace is consistently being out run down his flank

totally agree with the comment about them standing up to be counted, if they have any pride in playing for the Rangers it is definitely now that they need to show it. Murty said in his press conference the other day that he expects to come flying out of the traps tomorrow with aggression and pace, hope the players have got that message, because that was sadly lacking last week!

Who makes the shirt is the least of my worries, I want to see which defenders we will be signing this summer to wear it, as the present lot don't seem to want to get theirs dirty on a weekly basis!

We haven't got any strikers that can play up front by themselves, we need a different system of play, with two up front getting in the box, morelos plays most of the match with his back to goals, and laying the ball off between the centre circle and the "d", or running down the wings, we need strikers in the box!, or players taking shots from outside the box like other teams

If Murty's master plan was to play at snails pace, sit off the opposition and let them play, then it worked a treat! Morelos gets pass marks for passion despite his awful open goal miss, and Docherty tried, but I'm still waiting for the rest of the team to show up. I'm 64 years old now, and that has got to be one of the worst performances I have ever seen from a Rangers team, the other teams will have to perform pretty poorly if we are to finish second now.

CFBear, I agree, keep seeing the opposition sailing through our midfield, our passing first half was poor, too slow to react to the second ball, and our defensive clearances just seem to go straight back to the opposition, we looked better in the second half, but was that us or Dundee getting tired. Ref made some shocking decisions as well, let's see if we can hold on to second now. We need a big result next week.
