Fernando Ricksen, Phil O'Donnell, Liam Miller, Davie Cooper, Arnold Peralta, Tommy Burns. the sometimes cruel vagaries of life can strike whether you be blue or green. I want us to win tomorrow real bad. but I don't hate them. and just remember. if the ref should make a blooper tomorrow it is not part of some blue delete green conspiracy. rubbish sometimes happens! and the great tapestry of life is quite often less than perfect.

It's not only the referee we should look out for it's the linesman- 3 players offside.


2.) 28 Dec 2019 09:45:36
Very profound Aracadia72, but I still want us to stuff them out of sight and castigate the referee when he rules against us. Happy New Year!


3.) 28 Dec 2019 10:16:30
I want us to win and I hate them with every single fibre of my being!


4.) 28 Dec 2019 10:36:08
Let's be real here. The season of goodwill is over!


5.) 28 Dec 2019 11:16:28
You and me both C

Frankly what’s has our deceased legends got to do with anything? Struggling to see why that point was made. If the ref makes an arse of it he deserves pesters for it! As for them. I want to do them in as much as possible.


6.) 28 Dec 2019 14:15:59
Normal business restored gents, I believe we are prepared and ready for the challenge tomorrow.

I was taken by the fact that in the Hearts 1-1 draw post mortem by fans there was little focus upon the undermining aspects to the group that these international breaks bring about. not only the brutal travelling itineraries of the likes of Morelos and Arfield but psychologists talk about the importance of group dynamics being built up via close working proximity. this momentum is disrupted when players are away. I know it's not just Rangers with this issue and, of course, players being able to do their thing on the international stage is good for both the player's and club's profile. but there is a downside too. let's hope this is not a factor this weekend in our game at Hamilton.

Absolutely no excuses for the Hamilton game. Hamilton have been hit with an injury crisis and are having to draft in some of the younger lads. 4 - 0 Rangers.


2.) 20 Nov 2019 18:37:19
Big fan of scotty arfield but feel that his performances so far this season have been impacted due to international games in the summer.

Did anyone see the Eros Grezda two goal salvo and his celebrations in the Colts win at Solihull Moors? This is a player who seems to be working hard with a determination to be getting back into the first team frame. I know after the Ballymena incident some supporters have expressed the viewpoint that the Ibrox exit is the only place now for Grezda. He, undoubtedly, is a talented player and we may yet get to see this. surely the Barisic situation is a timely reminder to some on here not to be writing off this player too prematurely?

Arcadia72

1.) 08 Nov 2019 14:28:52
Barisic didn't spit in anyone's face and is a Croatian international. Grezda will never play for us again.


2.) 08 Nov 2019 14:36:26
Myself and my son were amongst the 500 bears at Solihull, he was quite impressive and there is obviously a player in there, and I remember similar things being said about Borna not that long ago. It will obviously be up to the powers that be at our club that will decide his fate in the long run. time will tell.


3.) 08 Nov 2019 14:41:57
Souness i don't think he's good enough but spitting has never put anybody out the club b4. So why now?


4.) 08 Nov 2019 14:52:24
Everyone deserves a second chance lads. There's definitely a player there.


5.) 08 Nov 2019 14:54:45
If our manager decides to play him, he’ll get my support.


6.) 08 Nov 2019 15:10:55
Agree with you dk, he may be what we need on the right.


7.) 08 Nov 2019 17:26:50
I watched him play for the Colts v Berwick Rangers and he was quality there too. Some of his crosses would have been right on to Morelos napper.
Worked his socks off. We should play him and get some money back at the very least Sshowed a great attitude as well as great ability.


8.) 08 Nov 2019 18:37:55
If we want some of our money back
To need to give him some game time
Even it's not with the first team.


9.) 08 Nov 2019 18:51:25
Well i definitely rate him higher than barker anyway. Give the lad a chance.


10.) 08 Nov 2019 23:13:30
There is no way back for this guy at our club, and it's just not the spitting thing. He's been found wanting in his training, his lifestyle and much more, and any fool can see that playing at this level he should be a stick-out. We're merely keeping him fit for the next few weeks when we can hopefully get rid of another wage thief.


11.) 08 Nov 2019 23:15:22
I bet the boys saying he shouldn’t play for the club again never said anything about Gazza when it came out about him wife beating.
Also the fans gave Flanagan a chance as well and for me hitting a woman is worse than spitting.
People are using the spitting as an excuse because they don’t think he is good enough.
If he was as good as gazza for talking sake people would still love him and that’s a FACT.


12.) 09 Nov 2019 09:43:10
Well. in making my post about Grezda and his performance in that Solihull Colts team I wasn't inferring that I believe him to be a stick on to be getting back to the first team squad. but as Dunbar Blue saw this guy is working his socks off in these games and his celebrations against Solihull suggest that he really wants to be with us ie is not going through the motions eyeing his next contract away. some players, for whatever reason, egs cultural acclimatisation can take time to be bedding in at a new club. all I was suggesting is that he might be one of those types. the spitting thing WAS demeaning to the club and could well have finished his career with us. but as Gannet has said others have found a way back after perpetrating far worse misdemeanours.

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.

Arcadia72

1.) 24 Apr 2018 09:26:53
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.


2.) 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!


3.) 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.


4.) 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!


5.) 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.


6.) 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


 

 

03 Apr 2018 22:22:01
Either Graham Murty is viewed by our the club hierarchy as being capable to be our 18th permanent manager. or more likely the drift endemic to his ongoing caretaker role reflects the complete lack of direction/ decision making currently for all to see at our club.
Is our board waiting to see if that semi final can be won and that the cup might be lifted to then confirm GM as manager? If so, what a travesty to be making such an important decision in such a way.
We've all got varying opinions on this matter. my own.

I see a clear analogy to the situation of Davie White who was appointed our manager in 1967-White was considered a manager of promise but a comparative rookie who could not put a halt to the relentless march of Celtic under Jock Stein.

A cup semi final victory would buy GM some time with the support. but even with such a victory and it's a big if! should such a pivotal decision be arrived at by our board in such a way?

If Murty is not confirmed manager then valuable time this season will have been lost in regards to a new manager shaping his squad for next season .

If Graham Murty is deemed good enough then why is his appointment not being confirmed now.?

Arcadia72

1.) 03 Apr 2018 23:46:12
Perhaps the powers that be have decided on a new manager already. Do you not agree that it could have a negative effect on Murty and the current squad to announce Murty will be removed from the managers position come May.

He is the manager until the end of the season, the end of the season is the correct time to announce who will be in charge next season.


2.) 04 Apr 2018 08:06:39
Arcadia72,if graeme murty gets the rangers manager's job beyond this season he'll become the 17th manager in our history! You're 1 position ahead of yourself mate! lol


3.) 04 Apr 2018 08:45:08
Thanks Coops for putting me right re my numbering in respect to our managers!
My own feeling is that I think regardless of the result in the Semi we need an experienced manager to be taking the reins of our club now. that's why I made the analogy to Davie White.
Look at the way we have responded to the sacking of Caixinha as opposed to say the way Crystal Palace responded after the sacking of Frank de Boer. the London club had also to be ripping up their script after a false dawn but almost within hours of De Boer's sacking they had appointed Roy Hodgson. decisive decision making.
I'm not saying that Steve Clarke is the man but all these comments about his supposed green tendencies ruling him out. if football management was all about emotions then the likes of John Greig, Tommy Burns, Willie Miller, Pat Stanton etc should have been absolute successes in their managerial careers at clubs they loved.
In England there have been appointments of managers such as Danny Wilson at Sheff United/ Sheff Wednesday, George Graham Arsenal/ Tottenham, Steve Bruce Aston Villa / Birmingham also Bruce as a Geordie managing Sunderland, Brian Clough Derby / Nottingham Forest.
Maybe it's OK for supporters to have emotions . it's the lifeblood of being a football supporter but we need the hierarchy of our club to be leading with their heads.

A word of warning guys re Braga. just remember. when we won the Cup Winners Cup in season 71/ 72 we were a distant third in the league 16 points behind Celtic. we were positively schizophrenic that season our league performances having no correlation to our performances on the European front.

So Graeme Murty's time as interim manager has seemingly been on 'a try it and buy it' basis.
Prevarication, dilly dallying and lack of direction/ impetus by our board has been there for all our supporters to see.

If, as Dave King's statement is now implying, that Murty is not being viewed as a long term answer then this season for a new manager to be preparing for next season has been lost.
Haven't the likes of Bilic, De Boer etc been free agents and available for the last few months? . (and with De Boer was available before Murty's position was confirmed for the rest of the season. )

Throw into the mix the whole Derek Mc Innes saga. what an absolute shambles.

I find some of the above posts by our fans trying to find an angle to be explaining away the Andrew Davies tackle on Brown as cringeworthy ie Brown has sown what he has reaped.

That tackle was absolutely brutal and simply one without any justification and the Ross County player should rightly be facing a long ban .

A very considered post there Ger78.

I posted on Friday that the braggadocio being displayed by some on here ahead of the game was all about pure emotion running amok and that some of those same guys would turn on Murty and the team if we did not get a result.

However, I have been pleasantly surprised by the overall tenor of posts post match ie it has not been one of pure destructive venting. whilst fans are understandably hurting there is recogntion from most that things on field are definitely progressing.
There is general agreement on areas of the team that still need attention ie central defence.

Maybe too there was a case on Sunday for Murty not being so expansive and congesting the midfield. but I am not going to pillory a manager setting up his team to try be playing attacking, expansive football.

Maybe. just maybe we can end the years of hurt in that semi final?
