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.

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.

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!

I know its a rumours page, and every man and his dog have been talking about big money from overseas, but do you honestly think Gerrard would have signed up seeing our current squad, and being told "that's what you have to work with", he must have been given assurances about finance for transfers, but the club are hardly likely to announce what we've got to the outside world are they?

We haven't got a striker at the club who can play up front by themselves, hopefully SG will have a different set-up in mind and get rid of that idea that Pedro and GM seemed intent on sticking with. We'll need some signings though!

I agree that the lone striker role has to go, I'm hoping that the new manager plays a different system to that!

ArthurD, been a shambles in defence since we went to the bottom league, (when it should have been sorted) and its been the same ever since!

Pdot, spot on there. If gerrard isn't looking at a complete back four change, then there won't be any progress next season. Tav continually allows the opposition to go by him on the outside and get crosses in, and when they come there's no one defending in the middle! - but its been the same all year, left or right, four defenders that can defend is a must, and midfielders that put a tackle in instead of watching the opposition waltz by would be a bonus. At 0-3 today I was screaming at the telly, at 5-3 up I was ecstatic, and in the end I felt like we'd lost, roll on June 1st!
