Forgive me if I'm wrong but didn't Cummings only play well in the championship, I can't remember him doing anything in the SPL. And so I don't get all the hype for what's essentially a really good championship player. If we get him on loan, then fine, but I wouldn't take a risk on him if we had to buy him as he has never performed at this level.

Would b great signing hope we get him.

Zikos, Cummings was only 18 when His got relegated and only broke into their team in the playoffs, where he scored their two goals against Hamilton.


3.) 08 Jan 2018 10:02:37
I'm not a fan of Cummings tbh. He comes across as a wee bed, much like Griffiths and would not want him near us. Anyway he hasn't kicked a ball down south. Also stories of late night drinking etc apparently. I think you guys are right when you say he stood out in the championship and not in the top flight. I think everybody remembers him lifting his game against us and assumed that was his normal form, which clearly is not the case. I'd leave well alone.


4.) 08 Jan 2018 11:52:08
If Cummings was half as good for us as Griffiths has been for them, it's a yes from me.


5.) 08 Jan 2018 14:43:45
I'm pretty sure Cummings only came into the Hibs team in the second half of the season where they were relegated, and even at that the majority of his appearances were from the bench. He was sold in the summer after the were promoted so he hasn't really had time to prove his ability in the SPL, however he hasn't exactly been lighting up the Championship down south. I reckon he would work well with Morelos up front for us but my preference would be to give MOH a shot through the middle with Morelos.

Again too light weight tonight for that style of play and too many passengers. Even the goalscorers were poor. Very few pass marks tonight.

The boy Barker is one to keep an eye on though.

asked my hibs fan mate if he always plays that well. apparently very hot and cold but was their main threat tonight by a mile


2.) 14 Dec 2017 01:41:34
Boy barker looked a threat!


3.) 14 Dec 2017 08:13:25
I'm told that's Barker's best game - ever. It could take him months to do that again.


4.) 14 Dec 2017 08:50:49
Can't believe some of the posts here, some people are never happy. To go to Easter Road and get a result coming from behind is a fantastic achievement, yeah the performance might not have been there and we rode our luck, but we came away with the points. Remember the manky mob could only manage a draw. There's a lot of talk about us being in a crisis, an embarrassment etc but we are only 5 points behind.


5.) 14 Dec 2017 18:02:16
Struth it's not that I'm not happy about getting the 3 points, however we didn't deserve them. This team of ours can't boss a midfield and retain possession for any length of time and we won't be able to challenge until we can control games for long periods of time. I think this is going to be another wasted year tbh as I can see most of Pedro's signings leave in January.


6.) 14 Dec 2017 18:56:22
In the 9 in a row years Tommy Burns Celtic Never got much because of the goalie's great displays. They had us pegged a few games. So take the deserved and undeserved points, that's what wins cups and leagues. 😃

I fear am absolute hiding on Saturday. Our ball retention is absolutely shocking. When we go ahead we should be making the opponent chase the ball for long spells of the game, draw them out and attack the space. Instead we constantly lose possession and defend deeper and deeper until we eventually concede. Initially I thought Dorrans and Jack in the middle would work but IMO they are not able to control games the way they should. Not sure if they are too deep or too far apart but something has to change/ improve quickly!

Forgive me if I'm wrong here, but didn't PC say in an interview how he wanted to follow FC Porto and Benfica in how they handle transfers in that they stipulate that all dealings are to remain confidential until the player has signed and that they walk away if the agents mention anything to the press. Every player we have signed so far and every player we are currently going after the press knew about them weeks and sometimes months ago, what's happened to keeping a lid on things?

Looking forward to reading the posts on this site in the coming months to see who we are being linked with rather than all the mediocre English lower league players we were linked with during warbs time. Can't wait for next season and if we were to take the invincible title of Celtic at ibrox that would be the best result again them since the cup final win when Ferguson scores the freekick.

Caixinha really rates his Godson (Ghanaian International player) so hopefully he can bring him in to sort out the defense. Other than that a no nonsense midfielder and a pacey striker are a must.


2.) 14 Mar 2017 13:00:30
Yeah adding a bit of muscle is midfield is a must, although I would be happy with securing hyndman on a permanent or for another year. Also agree we need a striker, one that can finish like a Negri.


3.) 14 Mar 2017 23:04:09
Yes will be exciting seeing us linked with a few decent foreign players and a few internationals all this player hunting in England's league one two and championship was depressing me.

Replying to bgate w, I also think Wallace and Tavernier could thrive in this type of system. In regard to 3 CB's marking one striker. I wouldn't imagine that it would be a rigid 3, For example the centre of the 3 could mark the one up and the others picking up the runners or two CB's doubling up on one striker and the other acting like a sweeper (tugay against monaco) .

I also get the fact that people are saying our attack is too slow, well it isn't helped given the fact we rely on our full backs providing the width. If we played them more advanced they would have at least a 25 yard head start on their current positioning.

And another way to speed the attack play is to take less touches. Its so frustrating at times to watch, players are taking far too many touches on the break and by the time they get anywhere near the opposition box they have 10 men setting up camp. I'm no tactician but surely this is obvious to see. Probably more obvious that McCoist's every man in our own box for a defending corner.

I like MW, I hope he gets things right and hopefully he gets the chance to add more quality to the side and hopefully he won't be so stubborn to change his system every once in a while.

Given that Hill is the only inform centre back at the club at present and Kiernan is not rated by most of our support where would Warburton find a couple of quality centre backs for these positions. They don't exist in Scotland!

TOMUSA

Then he looks outwith Scotland then.

I think that rangers should promote within up to u21's and then at that point they should let coaches go out and prove themselves at the top level. Then if successful bring them back home again where they would obviously know the club but would also have experience of managing a club successfully. Otherwise would be too high risk.

Agreed with everything you said Glasgow ranger until you mentioned Naismith.

Why do people keep going on about Ashley wanting to get his brand in Europe? You do realise he could just sponsor the shirt of another league winner, it's not expensive! Unlike buying and running a club. We can't allow another owner to come in and not have Rangers interests at heart, we need to learn to live within our means, that shouldn't mean we have to watch dross week in week out, it just means we have to run our club more efficiently.
Any manager coming in will still have the second largest in the league and should be able to challenge Celtic. They are not that great as their performances in Europe have shown.

Seriously doubt any manager would want to wait that long, he would risk the team falling even further behind our rivals.

Personally don't like a dof buying players on his own. The manager should be identifying which areas of the team he wants to strengthen and also key players he wants to get in, the dof should then add those names to a shortlist of players along with other realistic targets which he and the scouting team have identified. All information should then be presented back to the manager - transfer fees, wages etc of all shortlisted players, and he selects which one (s) we sign. After all he is the one that will eventually be sacked if the signings and team doesn't perform, I can't remember many high profile dof being sacked.

Cant understand the Cummings, big game player hype. Can't remember him playing in the SPL, only the championship. Loan deal is the wise way to go with this one. If only we did the same with Pedro's signings.

That's right, we would be getting an injury prone player who hasn't been in form for 2 years!

Can't understand why people would want Naismith back! Firstly his form peaked at Rangers and now is in decline. He has hardly played in the last few years.

Secondly he left Ibrox on very bad terms. He was supposed to be one of us but showed he was a complete mercenary when he refused to transfer his contract over (on the same terms) . We were not going to stand in his way of a move but he knew he had the pick of teams if he was a free agent. Not to mention how he described our team when he left. @#£&!

Now the guy wants to come back and most fans can simply forgive and forget. Sorry not me.

Steven Davis will always be welcomed back with open arms but not the rest.

Lee if you tend to look at the larger picture then surely you would allow Murty the chance to prove himself rather than rite him off already.

TJBB, when King strolled into town he made it known publicly how disappointed he was that the squad had no value. The squad had been assembled with bosmans and around half the squad left that season for free. Kind was raging and blamed Warburton and the previous board - all do e publicly through the media.

Well not only has the squad not performing well in the league, the value of the squad is plummeting under his watch! It's going to cost us a fortune to offload a lot of these guys.

Then the board stated that we had to have a director of football so that if a manager left, we had continuety and retained a certain style of football. They then employed a manager before a dof and allowed him to bring in a host of players that no sensible manger would want to keep. They told us they were bringing in a dof to prevent this exact scenario then within a month allow it to happen.

The board may be Rangers men with the best interests of the club at heart but they are totally incompetent and should stand aside. I wouldn't suggest for a minute that they should sell up, but they shouldn't be making the day to day decisions of the operating of the club and certainly shouldn't be broadcasting it through the media the way they are currently.
