Walters not on Arsenal list of players leaving. Apparently Arteta hopes to change his mind despite goodbye message.

Kaisercaillaud

1.) 04 Jun 2024 08:49:33
Kaiser his contract expires end of June.


2.) 04 Jun 2024 09:54:39
Yes thanks John. they released list of those leaving end of June and he's not on it. It said they still hope they can convince him to stay along with another couple.


3.) 04 Jun 2024 11:21:00
Cool kaiser, they can’t stop him walking away 1/ 7.


4.) 04 Jun 2024 11:25:25
Kaiser he's knocked back an offer for staying.


5.) 04 Jun 2024 11:47:50
He’s so well
To break into their 5 main defenders.


6.) 04 Jun 2024 12:39:45
He clearly wants first team football.


7.) 04 Jun 2024 12:57:48
The type of player we should be targeting. This pre season is make or break for me.


8.) 04 Jun 2024 12:59:38
This is one I'd like to go through. Looks special and if they don't want hm to go shows could be good.


9.) 04 Jun 2024 13:33:51
Obviously arsenal can make another offer, sounds like another calvin b.


10.) 04 Jun 2024 13:43:48
Kaiser this has potential to be an excellent signing if we could make it happen.


 

 

25 May 2024 12:15:57
Is there any confirmation on the Jefte fee. I'm seeing £2m+addons but was reported around 500k in Jan.

Kaisercaillaud

1.) 25 May 2024 12:35:40
If we've paid 2 million for a guy who had an agreed fee of 500k in Cyprus then we're doomed as a club.


2.) 25 May 2024 12:58:26
800k i heard but fluminese still hold a 20% stake.


3.) 25 May 2024 12:59:32
A seen 800k for 80% fluminese keeping the other 20.


4.) 25 May 2024 13:08:12
Lad has kicked on well since then, doubt we were ever getting a young talented player like Jefte for 500K, even 2mill is a steal for a lad of his quality, Jefte and Cortes are going to be a nightmare for opposing teams right side to deal with ;)

great competition for Yilmaz as well.

Onto the next one.


5.) 25 May 2024 13:33:00
LAUDRUPHAGI,

The same was said with the signings last summer. Maybe wait a bit until you see them play before praising the boy.


6.) 25 May 2024 16:05:48
£685,000 (80% Rangers and 20% Fluminense ) .


7.) 25 May 2024 17:48:23
One of minimum 10 in. Not one player in that squad is guaranteed to stay and play.


8.) 25 May 2024 17:51:16
Where is the info he kicked on well since January. By all accounts he went missing came back and only made some sub appearances here and there as the manager wanted more experience in the back line. Apparently he got ripped apart in a game and the manager dropped him. That’s according to a Cypriot football expert.


9.) 25 May 2024 17:51:35
800k plus a 20% sell on clause for any fee above 800k.


10.) 25 May 2024 17:58:57
Not allowed to have shared ownership of players in the UK. The 20% could only be a sell-on clause.


11.) 25 May 2024 18:06:33
Kaiser being reported 800k which includes add ins.


12.) 25 May 2024 19:20:43
I don’t think your allowed shared ownership?


13.) 25 May 2024 19:24:38
Blue out of 14 games since the transfer window closed he has played the full 90 minutes in 9 of them came on as a sub in 4 and on the bench as a unused for 1 match. The 9 he played 90 minutes in were all in a row then he didn't start the last 4 games possibly as they knew he was not signing next season for them.


14.) 25 May 2024 20:32:47
Not a Jefte fee for his potential…i’ll show myself the door lol.


15.) 25 May 2024 21:29:52
He’s the stat man. Be-ba-ba-ba-rah-ba. Boom-diggy -diggy -doggy-boom-diggy-Boom. Good answer Ally.

Nathaniel Adjei young Ghanaian CB from Hammerby being linked for Jan transfer according to sky.

Kaisercaillaud

1.) 04 Nov 2023 12:11:43
We definitely need solid young centre with a decent bit of pace too back up goldson n souter.


2.) 04 Nov 2023 13:54:55
Papers saying both sides of old firm are looking at him. For me, this is a sure fire reason to dismiss the link.


3.) 04 Nov 2023 14:33:29
We already have he's called Leon King.


4.) 04 Nov 2023 15:45:22
Leon king isn’t upto the standard requiremed.
He needs a year on loan or maybe even a few years out on loan.
I can’t see him making it at rangers.


5.) 04 Nov 2023 16:01:19
Stevie aye that's why we've rejected countless offers from man United for him.


6.) 04 Nov 2023 16:13:56
Gresley loyal we need better than balogun to progress we can’t be relying on a 35 year with injury problems who has played very little this season.


7.) 04 Nov 2023 16:14:41
Sorry gresley I read that wrong my apologies ?‍♂️ having a bad day and it’s my 1st day off in 3 weeks.


8.) 04 Nov 2023 16:29:35
Not sure leon king is going to make it.


9.) 04 Nov 2023 17:55:05
I've not seen anything special in king yet

We need to it him out on loan for gametime

We need to look at Scottish options for. squad too.


10.) 04 Nov 2023 17:56:58
Davies imo gets too much flack . would rather we look into midfield attacking options. Leon King also on books as is Sterling who can play anywhere in defence apparently?


11.) 04 Nov 2023 18:05:50
Tjs97,

I think that was more when he was a young teen these clubs were interested in him, although I don’t think they properly perused that interest it was more watching him.
He seems to have stagnated a bit from his early potential. Remember defenders sometimes come into their prime slightly later than mf’s n strikers.

John would be a good person to comment on Leon king as I believe he watches a lot of youth football and his opinion can have more substance than mine, anyway.

Also John, if u read this, or anyone else of course, what was the interest in king and how strong was it from other clubs?

I feel if the clubs of Man Utd and so on came in, he would have been off.


12.) 04 Nov 2023 18:11:49
King needs a loan to prove he can cut it.


13.) 04 Nov 2023 18:48:22
Stevie, King is 19. Give him a break.


14.) 04 Nov 2023 19:31:21
Am not in the lads case mate, I just feel he should be loaned out for 1 year deals at a time while extending his contract for the same length every time he goes out to insure we have him tied down.
19 yo defenders are never going to makbut at rangers mate.
He needs game time and needs to make mistakes to learn from them and he won’t get away with that from out fans.


15.) 04 Nov 2023 21:58:17
Any other club in the country bar maybe celtic King starts. I would agree that he needs time in an SPL first team to allow him to progress and fulfil his potential.


16.) 04 Nov 2023 23:43:34
Just look at how well Lewis mayo has done on loan and since moving.

King needs 3 years regular football before he is ready to be a rangers starting centre back.


17.) 06 Nov 2023 15:53:58
Stevieg2 I agree they need regular football will never get that at rangers.


18.) 06 Nov 2023 18:38:05
Imo it is a mis conception Mayo is a good player, he fits a backthree and hits the ball the way he is facing, I’m from Ayrshire and know many killie fans who don’t rate him

King is a good footballer who two years ago found himself played at ch, he was a rb.
Many at rangers feel he is too short to be a top ch, they believe he will develop into a very good holding, defensive midfielder, I agree

Interest from Man U etc in my opinion nothing but click bait, he at this stage is nowhere near epl level imo.


19.) 07 Nov 2023 10:36:09
I agree John, king won’t be a top level centre half.

I’ve just never seen anything from him that appeals to me.
Cheers for input John.


20.) 11 Nov 2023 16:34:14
Goldson and Davies are the back 2. Not Souttar!


 

 

23 Aug 2022 11:49:18
Hearing Morelos not travelled for PSV. Don't know if injured or something happened so Just my opinion but reckon he's working for a move. Not signing contract but rangers still wanted good fee and it's priced him out so now his actions or attitude are making Gio want to cut loses.

Kaisercaillaud

1.) 23 Aug 2022 12:03:09
Attitude etc.


2.) 23 Aug 2022 12:07:39
Apparently dropped due to lack of fitness and attitude.


3.) 23 Aug 2022 12:20:43
Overweight, Let team down on Saturday.

He's not putting the effort in, Staff and Senior players of the squad all agreed.

Ball is in his court now.


4.) 23 Aug 2022 12:21:57
Not happy that he didn't walk straight back into the team. Never been a fan of Morelos,


5.) 23 Aug 2022 12:27:42
No one will want to buy him just now so we will lose him for nothing next year. Unless he knuckles down gets in shape and wants to stay. But that's no looking likely.


6.) 23 Aug 2022 12:29:07
Yip hearing contract offer been taken off the table and will be moved on if at all possible in the next 7 days.


7.) 23 Aug 2022 12:42:09
Doubt we move him on unless he wants to go.


8.) 23 Aug 2022 12:46:13
This is a bit of a circus from Rangers ahead of a massive and difficult game. Could they no have been a bit smarter and just said due to lack of fitness or he's carrying a knock. Giving it to the media that its due to poor attitude and all the seniors players have supported this decision makes it sound like a bit of a witch hunt against Alfredo.

I'm no saying all of that stuff in untrue and he's not deserving of being omitted, but keep that stuff in house. Doing it this way there's no way back for me now, Alfredo will want to go and probably feel from the way its being reported that his team mates don't want him. there's also very little chance of anyone paying a fee for guy your stating yourself is unfit and has a bad attitude. Not best for the club if he goes for nothing is it.


9.) 23 Aug 2022 12:47:45
Rangers have suspended contract talks with Morleos. He’s got to be sold now, or we’ll lose him for nothing in Janaury when someone else picks him up on a precontract.


10.) 23 Aug 2022 12:48:34
I know some people laugh at the weight thing - but I think his body type NEEDS him to be playing every week - 2 games a week to keep him at match fitness. This will have been noticed by other teams when they do their due diligence, together with what appears to be an attitude issue - I would be surprised if anyone offered decent money for him.
Be prepared for some silly/ cheeky offers just to take him.


11.) 23 Aug 2022 12:49:46
He is definately carrying extra weight. I've always stuck up for him regarding weight but he definately looks heavier under unfit this time imo.


12.) 23 Aug 2022 13:00:34
Wonder if he will play against Dumbarton tonight.


13.) 23 Aug 2022 13:03:26
There always someone willing to give players with attitude problems a chance. I just have the nagging feeling he's acting up again so rangers drop their fee. He's overweight and seems like isn't training properly. Looked to me like he wanted sent off at the weekend as had a kick out earlier too.


14.) 23 Aug 2022 13:19:40
Morelos i s the highest paid player at the club. If we can offload him we’ll be free up enough cash to get in a real quality replacement. We simply must offload him now, while we can, and bring in someone else for the season ahead.


15.) 23 Aug 2022 13:41:54
That really is a shame the way it has worked out for the boy. I have been critical of some of his behaviour etc but there is no getting away from the fact he is a great player and has so much more to offer. I hope it works out well for both parties.


16.) 23 Aug 2022 13:43:29
Dumbarton is his level just now!


17.) 23 Aug 2022 13:58:05
If we lose him for nothing it’s fine we only paid a million and had a million worth out him.


18.) 23 Aug 2022 14:31:36
This was never going to stay in house he's our star man. He doesn't play tomorrow questions get asked, also making it public may actually help him.

Every time he's been subbed on we've gave him support and cheered his name and constantly praise him. It's time he gets brought back down a level or two and realises he's just like the other 10 starting on the day.


19.) 23 Aug 2022 14:50:09
I agree Seeker just hope it doesn’t drag on and something can be worked out.


20.) 23 Aug 2022 15:19:18
Bassey,

To can’t be serious to suggest it would be okay to lose Morelos for free. Even if we sold him for £5m now, we would free up those £33k/ week wages on top. So we can go back into the market and bring a £5m striker here, on big wages, and a 5 year deal.

The time has clearly come for Morelos and Rangers to part ways. It’s important the club do what is best from a financial perspective. Plus, any new striker coming in would be ready to hit the ground running and would be fully committed.

Getting rid of Morelos within the next 8 days and replacing him makes a lot more sense than keeping him. Just my opinion.


21.) 23 Aug 2022 15:29:05
The fact the club are now saying lack of fitness why they hell was ge on the bench on Saturday then? The club have made a rip roaring Kant of this IMO.


22.) 23 Aug 2022 15:43:56
Yes that’s my thoughts too storm.


23.) 23 aug 2022 15:45:51
he’s been removed from the first team for a number of things, not just fitness

coming on at weekend was a part of getting him match fitter and to hold the ball up to see the points won

he took it upon himself to do something else

he’s blew his final chance, imo.


24.) 23 Aug 2022 15:54:43
Your all a bunch of jackals Morelos is our top goalscorer and the club leaving him out smacks of the same childish behaviour the club comes before individuals opinions and Morelos available for the squad is what is best for this game. I think Morelos has more than earned a chance of forgiveness for a mistake Rangers fans should be directing Thier anger at collum not following the narrative the media want in saying that it's all Morelos fault and keep in mind most of media is Celtic orientated. And if Morelos truly wanted a move we should be saying to him help fire us to champions league and we won't stand in your way.


25.) 23 Aug 2022 16:10:02
Totally agree Storm.


26.) 23 Aug 2022 16:23:24
So its the refs fault and the clubs fault that Morelos is fat and petulant. Wow.


27.) 23 Aug 2022 16:27:06
For, Jackals
Did you watch his attitude on Saturday?
The guy is a passenger at best, he has got away with it because he bangs in goals.
But loads of strikers bang in goals and don't have this crap attitude.
He is playing you like he has played us all along.
Kiss the badge, put the quiet finger up, go missing for three quarters of a game, score a goal, refuse to sign a contract.
Pure South American theatre at its best!
His time was up way back, we just need to shed the baggage and move on to better, with a better attitude.
Gio finally did something SG should have done two years ago?


28.) 23 Aug 2022 16:28:45
I hope GVB doesn't turn out to be another Paul Le Guen. A lot of players that have proved themselves being moved on or in the last year of their contract, early days for the new guys to make comment. The next few weeks will be pivotal as to whether we are going to make progress in Europe and be serious challengers for the League.
I don't have a problem with Morelos being moved on so long as he is replaced by a better player, same with any others but so far we haven't improved the quality of the team with players brought in to replace McGregor, Balogun, Bassey and Aribo.
It is easy to say that the new players will take time to settle or get used to the style of play. Unfortunately we have a Champions League tie to win and we can't afford to drop any more points in the league. Tilman looks like a good acquisition when he is played, Matondo just looks like another Sakala, Colak is definitely an improvement on Itten and Lawrence is a decent acquisition as a free. No idea about the others since they haven't played. I'm looking forward to us bringing in three quality players to seriously improve the first eleven!


29.) 23 aug 2022 16:34:57
go for, collum didn’t get alf sent off, alf did,

again, we have no idea how much was discussed and what it pertained too, that is something we should remember

we don’t know all the facts.


30.) 23 Aug 2022 16:52:27
Don't see how can blame the club. He's been eased back in same as is done with anyone but if his attitude is off too its his fault, something obvious been said after the game an Gio feels he can't trust him at the moment. Hopefully has the reaction of galvanising the team and they all raise their standards.


31.) 23 Aug 2022 17:16:06
Storm although I agree and love mo if he's indeed disrespecting gio it's time for him to go. My worry with gio is he's maybe tried to be to nice with Morelos and give him a chance and it's blown up in his face.

Also worried about click if gio consulting players we all know that would be goldson (to much power) and Tav.


32.) 23 Aug 2022 17:24:13
It's sad to see the Morelos situation manifest this way. but in all fairness it's been brewing for a long time.

Hopefully he can find a new club before the window closes as I don't think it would be good for both parties to have him around until January.


33.) 23 aug 2022 17:37:49
what power does goldson have?


34.) 23 Aug 2022 18:35:31
Jeff that's not what we are saying I like mo and have already said with the rumours it's definitely time for him to go. But do you not think the club have taken the opportunity to make the decision at this time as to not annoy the fans and also make him a scapegoat for the possibility of not making champions league. These announcements should have waited until after qualification.


35.) 23 Aug 2022 18:36:56
A lot more than you think tom or he would have been dropped at least once or twice over the years. Most overrated defender we've ever had just because he can ping a ball to wing.


36.) 23 Aug 2022 18:59:53
Appalling comments about a striker coming back after 5 months out. Shameful. Do understand the meaning of support?


37.) 23 Aug 2022 19:09:10
I never said it was just for fitness but they have named fitness as one of the reasons so he wasn’t fit but still brought him on.


38.) 23 Aug 2022 19:15:05
Gofor I didn’t know about the rumours of disrespect before posting to be honest but wouldn’t believe boyd. If it comes from someone at the club then yes I will.


39.) 23 aug 2022 20:05:54
never knew kris boyd told lies but there you go,

he isn’t fit, but he was in the process and was needed for the final part of the game, he was plenty fit enough for that, ,


40.) 23 Aug 2022 20:28:53
Lets give this some context, Morelos has 24 goals since August 2020 in the league. That is very replaceable. Been excellent in Europe and gave us some great memories but not been our top scorer in the league for more than a few seasons. He has let us down more times than any player i can ever remember at the same time. Time to get rid, all the best and thanks for the memories El Buffalo.


41.) 23 Aug 2022 21:06:15
Berkshire did le guen take us to a European final comparing them lol?.


42.) 23 Aug 2022 21:37:53
And now he isn’t fit for a game so that’s kind of funny ?.


43.) 23 Aug 2022 21:38:55
TT have a day off and get a life that’s my opinion I don’t care what you think plain and simple.


44.) 23 Aug 2022 21:55:40
I am pretty sure i heard Gio say in his interview he did not consult the senior players before making the decision. Said will have to see what happens over next number of weeks. Alf came on to get more match sharpness as he is not fit enough and let the full club down by the sending off. It wasn't a ref blunder, it wasnt incited by the Hibs player, it was plain stupidity. Let the team down, fans, management and also himself as he also misses out on match fitness and a chance to be a sub tomorrow night. And by the way Gio answered the question on how long it has been going on, it wasn't just saturday.


45.) 23 Aug 2022 22:07:33
GVB, no, but as we keep hearing when we failed to win the league, last season, that team was the one that GVB inherited from Gerrard. I am a fan of GVB, (the player), but now he has brought in his own players although he still hasn't brought in the quality of the players that he needs to replace; McGregor, Bassey, Aribo, Davis, Arfield, even Jack and presumably now, Morelos. We haven't really seen much of any of the players signed, Colak looks a good replacement for Itten, Tillman looks quality, Matondo has not impressed so far and Lawrence looks like a good quality squad player. I hope I am wrong but I fear we will lose tomorrow and we will struggle to win the league. We have a week to bring in some top quality players, as things stand a Goalkeeper, a top quality midfield player and a striker.


46.) 24 Aug 2022 02:59:39
Berkshire I don't know where your getting league comparison gio has brought in club identified players anyone who thinks otherwise is daft Lawrence Davies souttar are guys the club were previously linked with well before gio arrived. League. Was rank rotten the only good thing he did was give McGregor a shot at the No1. Guys like Karl svensaon playing as a CB and banning snack machines was first time he had left his own country in management and took over an already successful team from houllier. gio built his own team at feyenord and has much better experience of British players and Thier mentality. I fully believe of we hadn't went on European run last year we would have won the league no problem also try remember only reason they won was a huge helping hand from rest of spl in moving the break. He's also had some rotten luck in hagi and Morelos getting serious injury yet he still led us to uefa final. think you need to have some respect for what the guy has done already most of games we dropped points were down to individual errors we were not tactically undone by many teams only the one game against them.


47.) 24 Aug 2022 16:21:33
Goforbig, let's wait and see. I had the greatest of respect for Gio as a player and as a coach but so far I am concerned at the way we are playing and I am not overly enamoured with a number of his signings or in some cases the lack of signings. Of course only time will tell but I am surprised that he didn't recruit a top quality keeper, a quality player to replace Davis, (who is still our best midfield player), and while I like Tillman and Lawrence I am curious why we signed Yilmaz given the cost, Davies who is not match fit and Matondo who doesn't look any better than Sakala. Perhaps I was just expecting him to sign three or four top quality players from Holland or Spain where he knew the leagues and the players or unearth a gem from his time in China. The fact that Souttar, Davies and Lawrence were all players that we were looking at before GVB arrived is not an argument for why he should sign them. Yes we had rotten luck last season with Hagi and Morelos being injured but we also failed to strengthen when we won the league and that certainly didn't help either GVB or to be fair Gerrard before him. Unfortunately if we fail to win the league this Season and struggle in Europe it will be seen as GVB's team and GVB's fault. I agree that we could have won the league last year and the European Trophy if our manager, (either Gerrard or later GVB), had been allowed to bring in quality acquisitions. This was a big part of the problem. I believe that we both want the same thing and that is success for GVB and for Rangers. I just have this concern that currently we are weaker than we were 12 months ago and that despite the acquisitions we haven't improved the quality of the Team.


48.) 25 Aug 2022 01:37:25
Bb bull, we weren’t a champions keauge team last season, we are now.

reports Ajax offered £19m plus add ons and Brighton only offered £16m so far.

Kaisercaillaud

1.) 16 Jul 2022 07:57:08
Ajax won't get bassey for £19million mate!


2.) 16 Jul 2022 08:09:04
16m no where near enough! I know we would all like any potential departure of Calvin Bassey to smash the Scottish transfer record and i believe it will we need to play hardball and get as much as we can for him. I honestly believe Bassey will go to the very top.


3.) 16 Jul 2022 09:02:45
Would love us to get closer to 30 but not sure will go that high. Depending on the add ons £20m is still amazing deal from where he was. Not a bad starting bid and if can draw others into bidding war could go much higher.


4.) 16 Jul 2022 09:49:55
Nonsense. Ajax don’t do add ons in any deal.


5.) 16 Jul 2022 10:02:21
Bornabear where did you read this? As all I have seen is they don’t do sell on clauses mate?


6.) 16 Jul 2022 10:45:43
Storm they do. Look at Antony deal.


7.) 16 Jul 2022 11:05:40
Yep 20% sell on for Antony.


8.) 16 Jul 2022 11:06:45
John did you not say yesterday Ajax don’t do add on’s? I’m sure i read that from you, and talks of £30M. Where did that story come from?


9.) 16 Jul 2022 11:36:21
GRZ, I also read that Ajax don't do add on's, was on a news feed relating to Ajax transfers.
Could be accurate, could be false.
No one really knows if the offer had add on's.

So that was a load of rubbish getting spouted then John?


11.) 16 Jul 2022 14:36:23
Gr7 what I said if they refuse to do addon we ask for 30 million

It certainly is storm mate.

I should have done my own research instead of believing what I read on here ? lesson learned.


13.) 16 Jul 2022 18:37:04
John, you started this rumour yesterday.

News coming out of Holland. No add ons or sell on for Bassey.
A straight 30 million. Fgs get him on a private plane.


To me that doesn’t answer where this info came from in my original question yesterday or even match what you sent above.

Tired of hearing how SG wasn't backed. Obviously all managers want more but after backing him with an incredible 45 players in 3 years think it was fair to say he needed to sell to buy. Been talking about player trading for years but not done it. They were fair and gave him the choice which was mistake as those who stayed like Kent Morelos etc were never as good after 55 because think they hoped to move on and we lost any value.

Kaiser, he had to be backed at the beginning like this because of the total mess/ shambles our club was from top to bottom and it was always going to take a few seasons to build us up, to which he did, so see it for what it was my friend ? There's no other manager after gerrard, who inherited a mess like he did when he first came in, absolutely nowhere near it ?In the league gerrard i'll say again without question had the measure of celtic and after winning the title we were leading them again by 7 points, before his departure and we would have won the league imo if he'd stayed ?We were unbeaten against celtic under gerrard for around 18 months ? The board stayed still mate, surely to god everyone sees and knows that ?.


2.) 19 May 2024 11:34:15
Unbeaten for all that time against them and win one trophy ??????.


3.) 19 May 2024 12:44:34
Yes it had to to begin with but cones a point when we need to raise money too which he didn't want to. to rebuild on and off the park. Not selling at right time has cost 10s of millions which could have been used to back managers. Instead we another season with a host of out of contracts and loans with few sellable assets to fund the needed rebuild.


4.) 19 May 2024 12:56:42
I’d still like to be in the position of being able to beat them as we were able to back them

Then we might have a good chance of winning this final but right now I don’t believe we will.


5.) 19 May 2024 12:57:57
Can't say never backed him when they went with his decision to keep the players.


6.) 19 May 2024 13:48:54
Strom you still don't get the full picture in what i'm meaning my friend ?Ach well i tried the clue being in the league regarding gerrard strom ?.


7.) 19 May 2024 14:05:42
Fully agree Sir Walter, irrespective of whether it's business or sport, you strengthen when you are on top and you build on that success.
Our Board under Park failed miserably, with Park and Wilson being the prime reason.
I might not be his biggest fan but Dave King was 100% right in his criticism of Park.
Thankfully, Park and Wilson are now gone and I live in hope that under the guidance of John Bennett that we see significant change both on and off the park.

Hard to sort through needs and wants for next season. GK hopefully Butland stays, need 1 new backup and promote 1. Full backs Yilmaz Fraser Tav Sterling. Would like new but think bigger priorities. CB 2new first choice Souttar and King back up. Wingers needed for both sides Rabbi and Ross back up. CM need a new strong holding mid who won't be bullied by Calmac and a new creative cm who can score.

Goals from midfield has been abysmal. Fight it out with Raskin and Dio. Todd and Lawrence decent but not enough end product. New ST with Dessers and Danilo back up. Somehow also need Scots so can name a squad for Europe too. PC got his work cut out.

Kaisercaillaud

1.) 17 May 2024 08:35:28
I don’t see us keep both Dessers and Danilo as back ups I think we need to give Danilo a chance as he’s been too start stop this season to judge. We need to let Tav go he’ll be 33 next season he’s on the decline and is only going get worse.


2.) 17 May 2024 08:56:42
Think both cantwwell and lawrence will move on.


3.) 17 May 2024 10:03:11
Guys, todd cantwell has a 1 in 4 goalscoring ratio for us and i don't know how many assists ? He's had a stop start season with injuries and i honestly think with a very hard clement pre season behind him, i reckon he'll be a very important player for us next season, absolutely no doubt for me ?I think tom lawrence will move on ?.


4.) 17 May 2024 13:10:35
Sir Walter 7 goals and 7 assists this season out of 42 not 1 in 4. I like him but he needs to produce more rather than us rely on almost entirely Dessers and a RB. Contrast with OReilly their attacking mid, 18 goals and 18 assists.


 

 

14 May 2024 07:06:59
Heard bit of Andy Halliday yesterday and don't normally listen but just got me thinking, how much are we any better than team he played in. If you made a combined team I'm not sure that many of this squad would get in that team. Recruitment has been shocking. Taken us back years.

Kaisercaillaud

1.) 14 May 2024 10:16:08
The worrying thing here is Ryan Kent would likely still get into our 11. Ahead of silva? maybe/ maybe not. ?

Mixed 11 since Gerrard took over would be, at there best….

Shagger/ butland

Tav of course ?
Goldson/ balogun
Hellander or Bassey
Bb or Bassey

Jacko Davo kamara

Sima
Alfredo
Kent or aribo

That’s a damning verdict on the board for not backing Gerrard when he needed and deserved it.
And damning of the managers brought in since Gerrard left for not improving on the players we had.


2.) 14 may 2024 10:49:42
we couldn't win a league that was thrown at us, our usual suspects managed to throw it back again. much too hot for them,

hitting a great free kick v St Johnstone doesn't win titles, heart, spirit and balls win titles, sadly lacking on all counts.


3.) 14 May 2024 11:30:24
TT, you forgot to mention we need quality as well.


4.) 14 May 2024 11:42:49
Tom yesterday u said bottle doesn’t win titles and today your basically saying the opposite and saying heart n spirit (bottle) wins titles?

Fact is a mixture of quality, experience n youth is needed to challenge for titles.
The best team then win it.


5.) 14 May 2024 11:49:08
Kent was a million times better than anything g we have the now and he wasn’t good enough. That’s the sad reality of the summer window.


6.) 14 May 2024 12:10:48
Gerrard did great obviously but I'm even talking pre Gerrard, maybe a bit extreme but I'm not sure players this season are better than Warburton/ Caxinha/ Murty era. Wallace Miller Waghorn Windass McKay Halliday Holt Jack Candeias Wilson Hill Martin Dorrans and others would be pushing for places.


7.) 14 May 2024 13:17:43
On his game (I know, I know), Kent was head and shoulders better than anything we have right now. There was a time, during games against them, when he would turn their defence inside out. Who do we have now who can do that, or has done that? I'll save you the hassle, nobody!


8.) 14 May 2024 14:14:50
Every player knew their job under Gerrard subs included and the fans knew their style of play, Gerrard got time because we had to build a team from nothing really and we all knew it, Clemont has to build a majority of a team over the summer to suit how he wants to play, without injuries a think we would have seen a lot more of what he wanted and gave us a lot more confidence that we are on the right track.


9.) 14 may 2024 15:15:46
i've earned my senior moments, stevie lad.


10.) 14 May 2024 15:48:10
Getting bit carried away with the Kent nonsense here boys - he had few good games against them but quite a few howlers too - if he was that great he would have torn one from the lesser teams in our league which he should have done but didn't do on a very regular basis - also he is hardly setting things on fire in Turkey - so that case needs rested. One of the most overrated and highly paid players to pull on the light blue IMO.


11.) 14 May 2024 15:49:18
A bet u have Tom lol ? lol ??.


12.) 14 May 2024 16:19:38
Stevie, so tt contradicts himself, we all do it. Try to remember what u had for tea last night. I’m being serious.

You just the other day say buy Lennon lend him back to Motherwell. Next thread never loan miller out. We all make mistakes or don’t remember everthing. Myself and Tom are nearer 80 than 70.


13.) 14 May 2024 16:38:33
John, am having a bit of banter with Tom. Not digging him mate.
As u can see with reply above ye.

A didn’t say loan him back the other day I said play him as sub n back up n if he performs give him the shirt.
I’d have no problem lining up with miller in the 11 next season mate.


 

 

11 May 2024 13:49:23
We really are a one man team. Unfortunately he's the GK. Sadly can't see him wanting to stay playing with this team much longer.

Kaisercaillaud

1.) 11 may 2024 14:10:11
especially when the manager removes the only decent centre half.


2.) 11 May 2024 14:38:58
This has been the story of the season really. The goalie has made this campaign look a lot better than it really was. The entire back four are too weak defensively. Lundstram was “the best” midfielder we had week to week, and that is saying something about the strength of our midfield. And what can you say about the forward group. Wholly crap! Dessers is the best of all of them and mainly because he runs all game long. He did manage to get a respectable goal count. If i had to live this season over again, I would have stopped chasing the title at 7 points behind and try to see what youth we have worth playing. A housecleaning is a must this summer. The only guy i would miss from this season is Butland. Any and all of the rest could go ….


 

 

03 May 2024 07:17:00
Just like Beale PC will have had most of a season to assess squad and see what we need, if he makes a mess of it like MB then he'll be judged accordingly. Difference is PC looks like he actually has a clue what he's doing rather than going off 4 yr old scout reports and can't see treating players as poorly either.

Kaisercaillaud

1.) 03 May 2024 08:49:59
We need to be patient and can't keep sacking managers because we are behind other mob in Oct, I will back. pc if I see improvement and good football so we might need to give him a full season with his own signings before judging him.


2.) 03 May 2024 10:24:37
Absolutely agree want to give manager time and do believe PC will get it right but if like MB it becomes clear he's made a mess of transfers he should suffer the same. Don't want to keep changing management but if they doing badly do we keep them or keep this squad together because we don't want more change? Anyway I'm pretty confident in PC given the job he's done so far.


3.) 03 May 2024 10:59:30
Worry for me is the change in qualification for CL, do we really have another season of experimenting, and miss out on mega ££££.


4.) 03 May 2024 11:22:41
New to the site although I've been reading it for years, some great information on here and that's why I read the site, no the posts above regarding the manager, I totally agree that he should be given time and also to bring in his own players.

One concern I have had this season is his formation, he seems to stick to 4-2-3-1, I think this needs to change especially against the other mob, I feel we lose the midfield when we play this formation.

Just my opinion but would like to hear what others think.


5.) 03 May 2024 11:28:04
We keep on sacking managers after a year our club will never do anything.


6.) 03 May 2024 12:23:01
Agree BJ. The gaffer might be a great man manager and coach but he doesn’t seem to be a great tactician. We play the same formation regardless of the opposition and also the personnel available to him. We haven’t had decent wingers this season, yet we play with wingers?

Hate to say it but even steve Clarke understands this with the national team. He suits his formation to get the best players on the pitch. I’m m sure he would like to play with wingers but doesn’t have any so picks a formation to suit. Yet we regularly watch a RB play LW? It’s baffling at times.


7.) 03 May 2024 13:14:38
Have to agree BJ and zikos. All our wingers are poor imo and don't hit any sort of respectable numbers. I said to my mate today i'd like us to go 2 up top at parkhead and flood the midfield to press and get it forward at every opportunity. Sterling CM is a must for me. Hope Ridvan is back though.


8.) 03 May 2024 16:40:26
Big dado sima had excellent numbers as a winger, think he could have hit the 20 mark if not injured mate, apart from him agree, we at least have to try something different.


9.) 03 May 2024 18:05:05
Yeah mate i didn't include him as he is likely going to be out of old firm. I want to sign him defo.


10.) 03 May 2024 18:24:42
Boy blue simanumbers excellent for a guy who mostly plays wide, get 20 a season from both wide positions would go a long way to winning more trophies.


11.) 03 May 2024 19:37:14
Ur spot on and I’ve mentioned something similar before, it suits them the way we play it leaves gaps and hate to admit it but their press is more fluid.
If we don’t try and sit in and be more disciplined next week then it will be more of the same, not sure the manager wants to play an extra body in midfield though.
firmly believe if we can be level at half time then we have a right good chance of turning them over, their intensity goes down second half.
Obviously added to that we have to take any chances when they come our way.
Can’t remember a time when we won there when we didn’t have to fight and do the ugly stuff especially in the first part of the game.
Maybe Lundstram to drop in to protect both centre half’s with Sterling and Diomande in midfield as well.
Remember us having a bit of joy with that in the Europa league run.


12.) 03 May 2024 21:35:50
Trueblue during our euro run we had midfielders who were very good at ball retention, davis, jack and kamara. Helps a lot. We can be very slack in the middle just now. But celtic are there to be got at, i'd be very disappointed if we sat in and lost anyway. Angry actually.


13.) 03 May 2024 23:01:29
Dado I don’t mean sitting in top of the goalie, more like being a bit more disciplined when they have it, watched Hearts have joy against them playing a similar way with three in the middle, let’s be honest we are going to suffer at times so we will have to sit in at some points.

He's not out of contract till half way during the euros so don't think we'd get much anyway. Let him focus on tourney then join. Makes pretty pretty good good sense to me.

Unfortunately amortisation means his value will have dropped from when we signed him especially as it's clear we don't want him. Thankfully he had a good 6 months so there is interest but it's the Dutch league and they aren't rich either. Need to be realistic. Will be doing well to break even.

Depends how much another decent backup would cost. Unless we made a decent profit then I'd keep him. A new main ST, then Dessers and Danilo can rotate/ battle it out.

The lack of goals from around the team is poor but they are supposed to be the leaders and particularly against celtic they have been directly to blame for giving away goals on a regular basis.
