Could do with striker with some presence who has some experience as I fear too many chances being squandered. Center back cooper would be good. someone for right wing maybe Kent or Jones use their pace.

Cummings to Peterborough years loan.

Agree6 Disagree1

13 Jul 2018 17:25:05
That's his level

13 Jul 2018 18:06:06
Don't fully agree with you MikeGer.
I heard the same thing when lee griffiths was at wolves and now look what he's done back up in Scotland! I think jason cummings is cut from the same cloth as griffiths! I think we should have signed him because he's a natural finisher, especially if gerrard wants to go with a 2 up top! I feel we've missed the boat here, but i wish cummings all the best at Peterborough! Put it this way, he wasn't given any kind of proper chance at rangers and we most certainly could have been doing with him last night! He Wouldn't have missed those chances, that's for sure! He'll score goals for Peterborough and eventually go on to score goals wherever he goes! He's still young and will get better and better! It should have been with us! This is a mistake in my eyes and time will tell if i'm correct on this! Good luck jason!

13 Jul 2018 20:06:14
Have to agree with Supercooper I thought Cummings deserved another crack at us. Not really given chance last season and I’m sure he will score goals

13 Jul 2018 20:28:11
I have to agree he would have scored a couple last night if playing . Anyway it didn't happen and we have got the boy from Roma to sort that problem out so onwards we go

13 Jul 2018 20:58:03
Aye as well as not really getting a good run in the team i don't think our setup suited him either he isn't really a one up top kinda guy, a partner would do him good, unfortunate but these things happen.

13 Jul 2018 21:23:45
Good luck Jason and he never got a chance from Murty who let him down! #A good bluenose🇬🇧🇬🇧

13 Jul 2018 21:50:51
Cummings would have been a good player to have in the squad and would have scored us a few goals if given the chance.
Sadiq has been brought in by SG to score the goals so as c. f bear stated onwards we go.
In my opinion we need to sign another striker with a bit of experience.

14 Jul 2018 08:18:46
Cummings totally flattered to deceive . the boy didn’t do much when given his chances . simply not good enough
Alfredo blew him away . and the stick he gets us outrageous. so good luck Jason keep head up and work hard. nice tattoos tho

14 Jul 2018 13:11:17
Glad he’s out of Ibrox not good enough

14 Jul 2018 13:13:49
I’m leaning with you on this one super . Whilst I don’t think he’s the best player out there, I feel he’d have been a useful squad player. He’s the sort of character that opposition fans hate and sometimes that’s needed in a team as it adds character something which has been missing in our team for many seasons now.

13 Jul 2018 17:02:26
was at game last night frustrating stuff. a little early to get too worried. but if we were offered davis back right now i'd jump at chance. midfield arfield not the answer he is clearly a player for wide areas. hope lassana could fill role but doubt it.

13 Jul 2018 16:59:25
C. f bear. candieas is a great crosser, what games do you watch, he can't cross the road. terrible.

Agree5 Disagree9

13 Jul 2018 17:37:42
He is an awful player and isn’t the answer if we are ever to challenge them

13 Jul 2018 18:19:18
been saying this at Ibrox for all of last season, but I was shot down everytime by others who love the fact he works really hard. Sorry but good players are praised for ability and what they do and not for working hard, as good players make working hard look easy.

13 Jul 2018 18:27:36
Candeias is a journeyman

13 Jul 2018 18:50:20
candieas is bang average at best and i think gerrard is starting to suss him out

13 Jul 2018 19:06:56
Det, some of the greatest players are hardworking, nothing fancy footballers. Guttuso, Veira and players of that ilk. Not candieas’ biggest fan either I have to say tho.

13 Jul 2018 20:31:28
Blue sash you have got the wrong guy. I totally agree with you. I said I was shocked he is getting a start never mind cross a ball for us.

13 Jul 2018 20:59:10
Flan as right back and tav further forward. Candy on bench. Seems simple and would be more solid.

14 Jul 2018 11:44:03
Was great to see Stevie Sub candieas after 55 min. That just would not have happened the past two three seasons . The magic hat always always with 20 to go Pedro/ murts very erattic . pkeased how Stevie and Gary handled it

13 Jul 2018 15:54:41
It's actally unbelievable the way fans going on about last nights game, we were the Domanint team and that's the 1st competitive game there was a lot pressure on the players last night after last season, on another night we could of had 5 or 6 so player were getting in right positions, but 1st game lads so only is going to get better, windass better watch out because think Ejaria looks a class act so calm on ball he will tae his position, we have sadiq comin in and another striker so goals will come also got a clean sheet, really think we should be takin the positives from this game we will get better, if this was a game half way through season would be a lot worse, but we got half the job done, go for a quick goal out there and it's job done, let's go.

Agree14 Disagree1

13 Jul 2018 16:10:32
Cant take to much from last night as its only the 2nd real pre season game. However I thought the players looked a bit flat at times and out of ideas. It will come together as pre-season goes on however the intensity levels need to be upped. In the home games if much rather see John play as it allows us to make the pitch bigger. I can see the benefits of having Flanagan playing in some of the tricky away games though as he is a better defender.

13 Jul 2018 16:45:36
You have a point chips, but did we not go through the same sort of things last season, we created loads of chances in very many games but did not convert nearly enough. We created enough opportunities last night to win 2 or 3 games. I think if we had an out and out goalscorer lots of fans would feel a bit easier.
Hopefully the guys that come in will do the trick up front.
It seems to me Windass and Morelos have picked up from where they left off last season

13 Jul 2018 17:08:46
Yea we definitely need another striker what is going to score goals and when get a chance we get excited as I’m afraid when morales gets a good chance u more tense up because don’t no what he will do with it

13 Jul 2018 17:43:28
I think Gerrard seen last night that we need a striker who can finish. I like Morelos and does a lot of graft. However he is a striker first and foremost. Also Windass ain’t a right winger and Candaeis ain’t a midfielder. So Although last night wasn’t what I expected but it has told Gerrard where we are weak and where we are reasonably strong.

13 Jul 2018 17:58:49
100% right CanadaBear. The need for a natural finisher is a priority I think. Fingers crossed we can get one in before the window closes.

13 Jul 2018 21:24:20
Was disappointed in arfield last night. Expected more creativity from him.

We will come up against these types of games all season and we need to break them down and take the chances when they come.

Ejaria looked like he had something about him tho and we'll see what the new guys bring.

One thing I hope is we can finally rely on a clean sheet. It's going to take some time to build confidence, but it's good when you can feel confident at seeing out a 1-0.

13 Jul 2018 22:42:50
One major thing I took from the game was Stevie’s ability to change it. his substitutions and timing of them impressed me more than the magic hat. Pedro and murts combined

14 Jul 2018 08:28:59
Also think Arfield had a prob that’s why he came off . seem to indicate to Stevie. I agree to that we were all over them . For the first 20/ 30 min I thot. This is going to be 10 and I thot bury were better. we just struggled to make final strike count. and I am on about the whole team. Even Goldson missed an open goal with a header. You see this all the time and I am sure we will beat them over there when they have to come out and the team don’t have 45.000 screaming at every mistake. ps I am as guilty as the rest

13 Jul 2018 15:52:52
I believe our problem last night was the same as last season, too many times we are bombing down the line and floating balls into a lonely Morelos, the boys got a head like ten bob bit! hopefully this will change when we play Sadiq. With the players we have i think we should be trying to play like Croatia have during the World Cup.

Agree1 Disagree4

13 Jul 2018 16:08:53
I agree largely with this caveat.

If we played a 3-5-2 with morelos and Sadiq/ Solanke paired with Alf, I think he would bang in a boatload of goals. He is strong and willing but needs another striker to play with him to get the best out of "El Buffalo".

14 Jul 2018 08:29:59
Well posted everblue

13 Jul 2018 15:49:11
Sat in trepidation last night because we basically had a new team out there who haven't played a competitive game together. Subsequently I think unfair ATM to criticise anyone. I'm still reserving judgement on Buffalo until he gets decent support.

Agree5 Disagree2

13 Jul 2018 15:30:26
Can the two new boys play on tuesday?

Agree0 Disagree4

13 Jul 2018 15:57:10
I don't think so, my understanding is registration was for the round not one match

13 Jul 2018 16:28:26
Ah right i think were going to need some decent height in the box if were going to be putting a load of crosses umar sadiq would do a better job

13 Jul 2018 14:21:36
Here we go again eh!

We are two minutes into a season and already we have 'fans' wanting more.

Get a grip everyone of you and just chill the f out!

People forget just how hard it is playing for our team. That mob will have treated that game like it was the CL Final! Every game will be tough because once again everyone will want to prove themselves.

Remember no one likes us, and we don't f***ing care!

With StevieG at the helm it's going to be harder.

This comeback could take years, and we will NEVER have a better manager and coaching time than this. So stay calm, be proud and screw the nut.

Agree6 Disagree6

13 Jul 2018 14:54:50
Big dirty dose of common sense? That'll not go down well my man hahaha. Try again and add panic and anger.

Great post mate.

13 Jul 2018 15:16:21
My nut is as screwed as its ever going to be. Of course we want more we will always want more. A lot of us are a little disappointed at the speed, or lack of in our build up play, of course I'm only speaking for my friends at the game with me. A few, a majority, thought Morelos was very poor, I think he will only shine when or if he has a partner up front, if we continue to play him solo we may as well sell and get a replacement. We all 100% think Windass is a luxury we cannot afford and Candieas was played out of position. Apart from that we were all quite encouraged.

13 Jul 2018 13:02:23
Got to say I can't believe we started the season with windass. Candeias and morelos as starters in first 11. They must be doing something in training or maybe is it because it's our player of yr and 2 top scorers and he hopes they come good. They are not for me and as time goes on I don't think Gerard will be long in benching them. Or selling them if bids come in. There was a fine margins between 2 nil last night and possibly 6 nil . All because of morelos and windass.

Agree2 Disagree10

13 Jul 2018 13:54:27
Morelos had a shocker, won't argue with you about that. Think your comment is unfair on Candieas, although i'd agree he was ineffective last night.

Did anybody else think that Windass and Candieas were playing in each others positions and getting in each others way?

Candieas is a great crosser and Windass is not, he's better at driving with the ball through the middle. Candieas is most effective down the flank and getting crosses in, he and Tav created the most goals in the league last season from that position.

13 Jul 2018 14:10:12
I found it quite strange that SG opted to play Windass on the wing and candeias more centrally when both are much more effective swapped about. Only thing i can come up with is he maybe wanted a little more energy in Central Midfield that you won't get with Windass but will with Candeias apart from that it didn't work for me, peculiar one.

13 Jul 2018 14:19:21
Agree 100% gaz

13 Jul 2018 15:27:14
Gazzmclau. I see sg playing his formation but not with the players he prefers. I see coulibally playing where candies is and Sadiq wide right.
New striker instead Morelos.
