I don’t have Facebook but got a call on the road back from the game from a mate who said Defoe has been in a car accident can anyone confirm?


1.) 28 Sep 2019 19:52:50
He’s ok. 👍🏻.



25 Jul 2016 21:41:15
Well tonight's game Barton strolled through it no end, Kranc just looks like he floats on air but my main positive is how good Rossiter looked in the 30mins he got! He put a tackle in and I know the opposition wasn't the best but he showed great urgency and he knows how to play a pass and also the most important thing he plays the right pass! Can't wait to see this lad get a full 90mins I think this boy is a steal at £250k.

Wilson/ Keirnan looked as comfortable as ever with Barton in front.

Our Joey strolled it tonight. He'll stroll most games up here but his quality is there for everyone to see.

Can't wait for Hamilton.

Guys really think we need to get a grip on reality. We had over 20 shots on goal and only scored 3, 1 of them a penalty. Barton was not impressive for me, he plays more sideways passes than Barry Ferguson did, . McKay? Why does he put the brakes on when he goes past even poor defenders. For me a lot of huffing and puffing to no great effect against a very poor team member
Let's hope it gets better soon?

3.) 25 Jul 2016 22:47:12
I don't want a grip on whatever reality your on bil72! The guys above are right Barton added a lot of protection to the cb's which was previously missing, rossiter likewise! Mckay wasn't as good as previous couple of games but forester more than made up for that with his energetic clever play, tavs delivery into the box was also very good.

A lot of positives to be taken even if it was against weaker opposition! We still have to go out and break these teams down.

4.) 25 Jul 2016 22:53:27

Can only beat what's in front of you! Barton and kranjkaer didn't need to come out first gear and still strolled it. I thought Barton was mom to be honest, hate guys like you, no matter what happens you'll never be happy.

5.) 25 Jul 2016 22:57:51
Bloody hell! I thought the team played well tonight and hardly had to get out of first gear. Remember most of these guys are finding their feet. As the old saying goes - you can please some of the people etc etc. But yes the lad Rossiter looks a steal. We are looking good, dare I say it!

6.) 25 Jul 2016 23:03:37
I thought Barry McKay bossed the whole game till he was taken of Fun!

7.) 25 Jul 2016 23:33:57
I was at game and thought Barton was a bit off the pace too, Mckay is great to watch and hope he goes from strenth to strenth. Stranraer are very average and the test will be when the league starts, lots of chances and ahould have had more goals but that'll come as game go on. Barton will be better as games go on too but all in all decent win! Moan the gers.

8.) 25 Jul 2016 23:46:29
Jordan Rossiter is going to be some player - I did mention him a few days ago and tinight he showed a maturity beyond his years - You can see the style of Gerrard in his play and movement - Superb signing -.

9.) 26 Jul 2016 00:47:58
Pierre, you must not have been at same game I was as Barton strolled it! In first gear I may add. Broke up play when needed, kept it simple but moving, won his tackles etc he was our best player with kranjkaer I thought, but ofcourse entitled to opinions.

10.) 26 Jul 2016 01:13:13
Didn't think Barton looked match fit and a few loose passes but his class is obvious. Thought mckay was superb. Niko oozes class too. Rossiter just slotted in to Bartons position like a glove.

11.) 26 Jul 2016 05:31:56
At the game last night and thought joey barton's passing range was very good, can't agree with a couple of the above posters that didn't think barton was good last night, although still not 100% match fit he oozed class and cruised the game and our defence looked a helluva lot tighter with his presence, kranjcar looked good in phases although a wee bit to go in fitness also, barrie mckay superb, but I've always been raving about him and I'm a big fan of his.

12.) 26 Jul 2016 08:08:50
People still need to remember that this is still really pre season. A silly competition format that has stopped us playing harder competition. The team has only conceded 1 goal. And I think in total there has been 10 shots in at our goal so it says that something has improved. Keep calm bears.

13.) 26 Jul 2016 11:11:12
Thorn76, i also thought wilson had a good game, he seems good when he has experienced players round about him, but he needs to stand on hiis own two feet, as he won't always have such comfort blankets around him, imo, he is old enough to play a good game, that's why he is vunrable.

14.) 26 Jul 2016 12:55:32
got to say for me McKay should have got man of the match but niko a close second the guys class oozed out over the pitch!

for me to say barton covered our defence well is a joke as we didn't have any defending to do.

rossiter for me would have been man of the match if he had played 90 boy reminds me of a young barry ferguson which despite what bil72 (the pessimist) says barry was a great player for rangers and if rossiter has a rangers carrer like him i'd be over the moon.

15.) 26 Jul 2016 15:49:29
Thought Barton looked overweight last night though still fit enough to stroll through a game like that. Rossiter reminds me more of Roy Keane than Stevie G. Kranjcar when fully fit will be the best of all the new boys. Think the League Cup has been good for us, for the fact that instead of meaningless friendlies, these small clubs have been competitive without ever threatening us. Its let us get our match fitness up to speed.

Happy New Year to all Bears and let’s make this the year we do 55 🔴⚪️🔵.




29 Dec 2019 14:40:26
Now that’s how you play with heart and passion and at the final whistle you can see where it comes from Stevie G 🔴⚪️🔵.




13 Dec 2019 18:01:31
The draw arrives Monday and which of the following would you like to be drawn against? Do we go for a glamour all British tie or do we all hope we get a slightly easier draw? I for one don’t have any preference as we are now at a stage where we hit our target and beyond IMO. I can’t believe some of the negativity being spouted about last night as when the draw first came out who truthfully hand on heart thought we’d actually get out the group never mind being in the position last game to win it? We’ve improved yet again this year and I’m one proud Bear!


1.) 13 Dec 2019 18:20:02
Totally agree blackwoodbear.
Take anyone.

2.) 13 Dec 2019 19:06:06
Agreed, anyone, and if we progress then nice one, if we go out then concentrate on the league. C'mon the Gers!

3.) 13 Dec 2019 19:07:28
Purely from a selfish point of virw ticket wise that everybody would get would be inter. Espanyol are rock bottom of la liga. Malmo lask and braga are probably some of the lesser sides. Would fancyna crack at Arsenal.

4.) 13 Dec 2019 20:59:25
Personally, would love Arsenal, Man Utd or Salzburg in that order.

5.) 13 Dec 2019 22:53:35
Malmo lask or espanyol for me 👍think any of those 3 would give us a better than even chance of progressing.



08 Dec 2019 20:07:21
Being at the game today and now sitting back reflecting what a performance we put in on what I can only say a midden of a park! We showed today how far we have come and the mouth about them isn’t that great! By far the better team and in any other day we’d be holding that cup aloft but it just wasn’t to be!

Bears remember who we are and how far we’ve came and also what SG has brought to this team! I’m disappointed totally but I’m also upbeat with that performance as we were better all over the park apart from the ball in the net ( and yes I know that’s the aim ) but we have the Euro league and also our league to concentrate on and I’m even more a confident! Just wasn’t our day today but I’m far far far more upbeat going forward!


1.) 08 Dec 2019 20:21:59
Absolutely spot on Blackwoodbear, can't believe some of the comments on here, think a few need a reality check.

2.) 08 Dec 2019 20:39:28
Maybe you's want to settle for 2nd best but most people dont. We've backed SG in the market. 7m for Kent Aribo, Brandon Barker. Done nothing. Too many under achievers. Yes he's done well in Europe and we are 2nd in the league but he don't have the mentality to win anything imo. This season will be another season without silverware. Yes we played well today but it's not good enough. We lost. That's the reality of it. Massive game now on Thursday.

3.) 08 Dec 2019 20:48:12
So as would you sack Gerrard, have another clear out and start again.
Who would u make the new manager.

4.) 08 Dec 2019 20:55:18
Too many rose tinted specs on here. The signings are going to be Gerrards undoing.

Sadiq, Ojo, Ejaria, Barker, King (remember him), Coulibally, Lafferty, Worral, Grezda, Mc Aualy have or are proving to be failures

Yes there have been so good ones too (McGregor, Arfield, Katic, Defoe and Kamara) but many of them e. g. Defoe and Katic feature sparingly. Think of the money wasted on wages.

Gerrard was talking up Aribo big style after playing tidly wink teams but where has he been against them and in Europe? Kent went into hiding at the end there today too but hope he will live up to the hype as we have little Individual creativity out with him

Morelos is a big wain and constantly spits the dummy. He doesn’t have the class required and 11 games against then without scoring does not win leagues or cups. I fully understand that that is controversial as where would we be in the league without him but that just proves, we have not progressed as far as some would like to think.

5.) 08 Dec 2019 20:59:07
John25, I'm sure As1974 is not calling for Gerrard to be sacked. He is only stating the facts, won nothing and 2nd in the league, same as last season.

6.) 08 Dec 2019 20:59:20
I didn't say sack him. He buys players brings them in for one game then drops them and brings them back again. You've got to give people a run in the team. When you play guys that don't perform you will start to struggle. Morelos has been outstanding this season. he's Carried the team. We can't defend and have no pace. We don't play young players. The likes of Katic, Edmunnson or even give Dochery a chance. The boy Stewart has done excellent and doesn't get a game. Andy King. Never been seen. When the big games matter we constantly fail. In a captain you look for inspiration, commitment and drive. Taviener has none of that. he's been off the pace for weeks. There you go. Gerrard needs judged on trophies not what he done as a player. Its totally irrelevant.

7.) 08 Dec 2019 21:02:29
That's right Stuck. I don't want him sacked but there comes a point when you can't win anything the dury is out.

8.) 08 Dec 2019 21:11:15
Done nothing? its December. Today was a poor result, not performance. Unbeaten against Porto and feynoord, great chance to progress on Thursday. 2 points from top spot in the league. With an apparently awful defence our GA in the league is one worse off than c*ltic.
I can understand the frustration on here from some but some of the negative stuff that's been posted is just crazy.

9.) 08 Dec 2019 21:12:29
So guys why give him a new deal this week, would cost a fortune to get rid off, . We need to ride the storm.
Lot of players bought I r not the required standard but for now we r skint.

10.) 09 Dec 2019 01:17:27
I agree with a lot of both sides of the above. By no means am I saying Gerrard needs sacked, but if he was a less glamorous manager (say we had appointed McInnes) with the exact same results against them, performance in the transfer market etc., I’m sure a lot more of you would be asking questions. Too many of you more in love with the idea of having Stevie G as a manager than your are WINNING.

11.) 09 Dec 2019 10:32:54
Just hope this doesn't have a knock on effect for rest of season this was a really good chance to lift silverware. Celtic are a different animal without Eduard.



08 Dec 2019 16:57:46
Total robbery!

I think the lowering of the park is to do with drainage and something to do with Clyde river. It was spoken in depth years ago and put to bed I think. The only way I see the attendance being raised is corners being filled.

From the best source I have and a friend and true gent that I worked with for four years. Played for the Bears and signed for Liverpool ( no names work it out ) but the story about MARCO rattling another players wife Iis true and the squash ball was actually a right hander!

Lads at the end of the day he ain’t a legend as such but what a talent we had for a few months he was at our great club! Alfie is a talent in abundance but as a natural finisher I don’t think MARCO could ever be beaten for that 33 goals before the turn of the year!

We all have our opinions as it’s what makes this page great!

Why would we want to sign anyone? Have you got a spare few quid sitting aside? Most importantly we need to offload the dross and then see where the squad sits. It’s just as easy as to buy one or two in January as it may seem as most are overinflated in price and no decent team would let anyone slightly decent leave in this window! Let SG decides who he let’s go and also who his sights are set on to buy 👍.

Sir Walter they ain’t exactly splashing the cash on quality as they’ve just bought a Polish under 21 striker that has scored 7 goals in the Polish league which is probably equivalent to our championship 👍.

We have got to play the strongest team we can so we get some sort of match fitness back after the break! If we go a few up then and only then make a change or three!

I agree with everyone’s posts but for myself tomorrow I’d play big George as he has the physical side to deal with their centre forward but also the lad can play with the ball at his feet. I’d be happy with whoever SG plays as right now I’ve never trusted a manager as much for years and years and even though we made mistakes last season we all can see he’s got a different mentality this year and this reflects on the team!
