A few weeks ago our supporters, to a man, were purring at the performances of Sean Goss . one or two even intoning the name of the great Jim Baxter in regards to an apposite comparison and imploring our board to be doing everything they could to be finding the funds to be making his signing permanent
One game when he appeared overwhelmed by a dominant Celtic midfield in the home 3-2 reverse and now most on here are stating that he should be run out of town at the first available opportunity.
How fickle can fans be . Goss from hero to zero in the space of a couple of weeks . ho hum.

For what it's worth, I believe that there is a player of immense potential in Goss-he was at one time signed by Manchester United who apparently viewed him as being a potential replacement for Michael Carrick. I, for one, think that he has the quality to be a stand out for us for seasons to come -whilst whisperings about Arfield and Mc Arthur coming to the club are great Goss has the quality to potentially be our playmaker/ lynchpin for seasons to come.

I agree. I think that Goss still has some serious potential. I think he just needs more game time to get his confidence back. He is arguably the best distributor of a ball in our squad. He needs time to adjust to the physical nature of the Scottish game. Do we try and get him on another 6 month loan to see if he can adjust? He wouldn’t be the first player to have a dodgy start to their career then turn out to be a decent player.

24 Apr 2018 10:58:42
Goss has been chucked under the bus by murty, who seems to pick his team by lottery machine. The quicker he is gone the better! But just watch Sunday he'll fluke a win!

24 Apr 2018 11:31:56
You can’t judge young players on their old firm debuts, he’d be a great addition to our squad and I hope we sign him.

24 Apr 2018 11:42:24
Spot on mate. He’s better than most we have in there and it just shows how mad Murty is to cast him aside for Andy Halliday!

24 Apr 2018 15:26:15
I think our fans are fickle. TBH think Goss is a lovely player with ball at feet only needs game time to build his confidence. Another Murty blunder in not playing him TBH.

24 Apr 2018 15:26:55
I have been slaughtered in two sites before first celtic game to say he is no where near good enough for us.
Less than 30 first team games at 23 years of age.
Also people complain about arfield and mccartur who are better than anything we have.
We must improve the standard

24 Apr 2018 08:05:37
If we sign Arfield what does the future hold for Murphy? Is Arfield a step up? and if we sign him we are making a big saving so we can use the money where we need to strengthen most probally defence! Thoughts bears!

Agree1 Disagree5

24 Apr 2018 08:16:32
Pretty sure arfield and murphy play different positions mate

24 Apr 2018 08:20:36
Different players mate arfield plays a lot more centrally probably more windass position than murphy

24 Apr 2018 08:29:18
As far as I am aware Arfield has been used as a CAM recently rather than a LM, getting a tad slow to be a winger in the Prem.

24 Apr 2018 09:19:25
Murphy is a good player but I thought he would be better. Would still sign him though 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧

24 Apr 2018 11:29:37
They don’t play the same position mate, although Arfield can play out wide he’s more used to playing central. If we get him (and it’s a huge if) you can expect to see both players week in and week out. From what I’ve heard his agent is using Rangers to push up his wages before he signs for an English Championship team

24 Apr 2018 15:28:07
Arfield and Murphy play different positions and both clearly enhance the squad

24 Apr 2018 07:51:00
Hi everyone, You've got to think Those who run the club know who they want as the next manager and have already sounded him out and everything's in place surely. Also he must be identifying targets, players who have been sounded out also and are coming as well as leaving, me personally I think there will be exciting changes at the club this close season and very much for the better. 4 games left let's everyone give it there all please. Second or third doesn't bother me which personally no difference really just prestige let's see what happens when. c'mon us.

Hopefully Robbie! One thing that has been missed of late with this much maligned board is that they really did back Pedro last summer with an unexpectedly large turnaround of players. They will be hoping for a far better return on that investment this summer as so many of the signings last summer under achieved. Hopefully some magic can worked and a manager appointed before the end of May so we can have a real crack at Europa league qualification which will be a tall order and probably come down to luck of the draw. Still Steve Clarke for me, he could make us consistent and would take no nonsense, also seems to be a good coach by improving what he has got to work with. I could see Morelos, Windass, John, Tavernier, Docherty all improving under him.

A big name hardly mentioned on here,
whom i noticed in the betting, was michael laudrup! He was tremendous at swansea, with a very pleasing on the eye, brand of football! He was also tactically astute! He most certainly is a big named manager that's for sure! He could attract players with his standing in the game!

24 Apr 2018 11:29:34
They are all half decent manager to be honest. Warnock would make us very hard to beat where as the other like more attacking play.

23 Apr 2018 20:00:21
Having a bit of a laugh at the gerrard rumours but on that note do you think the players would have a go at gerrard or somebody like him, I'd also imagine him not to lie back and take it, do you think its just the players saying screw murty under 20 coach literally achieved nothing and seeming clueless and just a total lack of respect. Everybody at some point has had a boss that tries to be your buddy and it just doesn't work, I'd blame both sides and move on to pastures new but if stevie g fancies cleaning his boots i'd still take him for sunday 😂😂😂😂.

De Boer is not the answer. Another shot in the dark.

Get money on the table and go for someone like Benitez, Dychr or Warnock. That’s the ilk of manager we need.

Now before you all shoot that down.

If Benitez is happy just keeping Newcastle up then that’s his choice, Dyche will see how loyal Burnley are, when next season they don’t get off to a flier (just ask Ranieri)

I’d enquire see if they have the bottle to come here and stop them for 10in a row. That would be a better legacy than a one season wonder or continued finishing just above safety.

Plus we could offer them Europe (if we achieve it) huge home crowds and the whole media swarming that being manager of Rangers is.

Whatever will be will be I guess, but we need a decent manager and funds.

If we continue to mess about with untested managers, we are destined for years of toil.

It’s up to the board to match the fans commitment, we have to do all we can to stop them.

I’m sick listening to them, lord it up as if they’re untouchable.

Boils my blood.

Finger out King and get quality in

Agree5 Disagree9

23 Apr 2018 20:18:52
You’re living in a dream world. Scotland is a footballing backwater that has no appeal for proven managers like Benitez or Dyche.

It has nothing to do with the boards ambition or money. if they can’t get a job in the top two English divisions then they might consider Rangers or Celtic (Rodgers is a special case with Celtic) .

23 Apr 2018 20:29:10
We have to get quality in no matter what. Managers of that ilk is who we need. If we don’t we will end up like a villa or Leeds. Rudderless every season.

Brenda is special, he knew coming here was a win win for him. We were, still are in disarray. He’s off once his legacy is done.

That’s what we need to use in attracting a manager

24 Apr 2018 01:15:55
Dyche and Benitez?

Mate, you need a reality check, big time.

Those two managers are in a job with EPL teams, it would cost us our full budget on players just paying compensation and the managers wages.

Celtic have paid a lot of money in ages for Rodgers, but you need to remember he was out a job.

A good enough manager will come, and Celtics time will come also. Nothing lasts forever. The gap IS closing, despite the disaster of the cup semi final. This time last season Celtic were nearly 30 points ahead of us. Now it’s 10.

If we get a manager that has come experience and is not totally clueless, sorts the defence, then we will challenge. Simple as that. Think about all that has happened this season and we are only 10 points behind?

24 Apr 2018 11:27:12
Villa are in the play offs this season and could possibly get promoted to the EPL wouldn’t class them as rudderless

23 Apr 2018 18:42:24
Tim Sherwood for next manager?

Hes a tit

24 Apr 2018 09:04:33
Lol I had Sherwood myself at the weekend so far fetched I didn't even post it.

23 Apr 2018 18:41:56
Arsenal looking at Arteta to replace Wenger, should we get in there first?
