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.

A changed team from Thursday, and to be honest not the first pick eleven for me, but as stevie says you have to rotate the squad. Anyway another good TEAM performance today everyone working and doing their bit on a bloody awful pitch, last seasons defence would have folded under those long high balls. El buffalo seems to be getting better week by week, and there's even a smile on his face!, if any members of our board suggest selling him now they need hanging! Onwards and upwards, we are the people!

Gerrards first stated intention was to sort out the defence, I know we haven't really played anyone yet, but the defence is improving apart from tav continually caught upfield, we need someone to attack from midfield, and if morelos stays then he needs a partner, he is not capable of being a lone striker. Gerrards somments last night were about the final third, so he has noticed!

After the last couple of seasons, Gerrard is like a breath of fresh air at Ibrox. I must admit I never expected us to get through the euro qualifiers with a new team/ manager, but he seems to have instilled something in them. We are not the finished article but we are no longer a soft touch as of recent history. I said last season that if we consistently beat everyone else at home and away, then the old firm games take care of themselves, I think with his comments that is what Gerrard is aiming towards. We were dreadful at home last season and better away, if he can make Ibrox a fortress as he says he wants to, that will be half the battle, and consistency from that will make teams fear us.

Stevie10, you are right, we sat off and let them play in the first half. St Mirren last night got stuck into them and harried them the whole match, which the tic don't like, that's the way to play against them, and hopefully Stevie G and the lads will have learned from that. Good performance today, we needed that, let's hope we can continue now and get a run going!

Not sure if that was Thursday catching up with them, but they out muscled us again really. Worst I have seen so far under Gerrard, not helped by every 50/ 50 challenge being a celtic free kick. Can see why killie were upset by collum last week. Outrageous dive for that free kick they nearly scored from. At least we have the international break now to re-group. I noticed celtic were like the sheep and motherwell at the end, celebrating like they'd won the league!

I saw someone called johnny gould on sky sports at lunchtime, a self-confessed Aston Villa fan, he said he expects ---tic to win the league by 20 points this season, and he also said Villa signing McGinn is by far the best Scottish midfielder at the moment! Priceless, don't know what he'd been drinking so early in the day!

Gers09, if i'm honest I didn't think we'd get to the group stages before the season started, but stevie g seems to have put something into this group of players that we certainly never had last year. i'm glad he's proved my doubts wrong, as he says "lets go"!
