I'm hearing Lammers is in holland today to sign a loan deal with option to buy.

I'm not usually one for making offerings to the transfer gods but today is special and big Sam needs to go pronto. If the gods can make this deal happen then i will offer them all a wee dram and some of my homemade soup and haggis pakora.


2.) 10 Jan 2024 13:36:03
Mmm! Haggis pakora count me in.


3.) 10 Jan 2024 13:37:53
Three Cheers, there is no way that this doesn't happen now that you've offered Haggis pakora!


4.) 10 Jan 2024 14:54:12
Three Cheers luv Haggis Pakora. Had it when I was back in August at the Karma Indian Restaurant in Whitburn.
???????????.


5.) 10 Jan 2024 16:06:35
Ya beauty it worked. I think the haggis pakora sealed the deal lads. The club have confirmed he is gone until the end of the season. woo hoo party time. What a window we are having.

Very poor today. I'm not overly concerned about the players, we've done well this window, I'm more concerned about Beale, Walter told us he'd written coaching manuals before he became our manager, I doubt Pep or Jurgen will be looking at them.

1.) 06 Aug 2023 00:49:04
Any man and there dog can see we need wingers.


2.) 06 Aug 2023 01:48:01
Beale need players that fit into his system what ever that is?


3.) 06 Aug 2023 02:13:30
Same tactics we had when Gerrard was manager without the wingers and that was as predictable as the lack of virgins in a maternity ward.


4.) 06 Aug 2023 02:20:10
Beale has players to play his system and good players as well. Whether it’ll take time to gel or not we should still be beating Kilmarnock. The players Beale has brought in are good players and I think we will be just fine this season, frustrating yes panic time no.


5.) 06 Aug 2023 02:29:41
Hes replaced Colak and Fashion 30+ goals with Dessers and Sima and you ain't worried? I'm lost for words.


6.) 06 Aug 2023 08:04:34
Not seen anything from Dessers yet to suggest he's an upgrade on Colak.


7.) 06 Aug 2023 08:30:05
I disagree, I think there's a real imbalance in our squad which is going to make us one dimensional and predictable to play against.

Strap in, as it's going to be a tough season.


8.) 06 Aug 2023 09:07:14
Agree EHL. Anybody with half a footballing brain can see this.


9.) 06 Aug 2023 09:20:14
I've a mate who follows QPR and he's giving me pelters "told you so " and general wind ups, Mick "talks a good game " and much more including some very bad words .


10.) 06 Aug 2023 09:22:03
Yes I will panic fans saying he’s got a style of play don’t panic I don’t see it happening with this bunch of players or the style of play he wants to lament they look terrible like we’ve went back years . also dessers looks worse than Alfie and colak his touch is terrible 3 games I’ve watched him so far.


11.) 06 Aug 2023 09:27:08
@Cammy, have faith my friend. Lammers scored 2 in 34 last season, Dessers 10 in 32 and Sima 6 in 37. 18 goals between them in 103 games. They may score more in Scotland as it's a far weaker league so fingers crossed.

Honestly though I'd rather Brighton kept Sima, he was rotten at Angers.

Time will tell with these players. Onward!


12.) 06 Aug 2023 09:32:02
If I see the name Lundstram listed again I'm going to need a new living room windie, what could Beale possibly see in him? Barasic? well that's even way beyond the Lundstram mystery .

Sima could settle and be worthwhile but am no holdin my breath on that, right now he's like a bigger Sakala .


13.) 06 Aug 2023 10:49:59
I’ve previously said this, we’ve no identity, a squad full to the neck with foreign players who don’t know what it’s like to play for rangers! Who still get paid regardless of performance. I doubt many of them would have lost any sleep over this result.


14.) 06 Aug 2023 10:53:59
It's like we could do with a player like Malik tilman who could beat a player with ease.


15.) 06 Aug 2023 10:59:24
Let me start by stating the obvious that Rugby Park pitch is a horrendous surface but we were taught a harsh lesson on workrate and effort!
If we had put in same effort and desire that all Kille players showed we would have taken something from the game. No matter how expensive a player is if the desire and workrate in shutting down is not there we will get zip from every game.
Another defensive blunder cost a goal but if were in any way creative we should be goals up by that time and an error can be lived with - my concern is lack of creativity and chances.
Going by that display Cifuentes and Danillo should walk into that team and not look back. The ball cannot be allowed to drop in the box especially from a schoolboy long throw-in - it must be won in air and cleared.
Our use of ball in possession was bad but the running off ball when going forward was worse - none running channels well or even getting in behind their defence.
I know that Sakala is not a top player but in that game he may have given different dimension along with Lowry who obviously is not favoured but in my eyers when the lad played he could see a forward pass - Raskin looked very frustrated at a lack of movement in front of him and cannot blame him. Most deliveries into box by Tavs and Borna were verging on schoolboy and can only remember about half a dozen crosses that gave any forwards some crumbs of hope.
MB needs to show that video back to players and let them see how a team SHOULD work and fight for each other and things must change IMMEDIATELY or we are staring another doomed season in face.
Several on here rant at how its only one game and that Killie will do us favours by beating Celtic there - last season Kille beat every team at home EXCEPT the Old FIrm ( game 1 stopped that rot for one side of Glasgow) - well I for one don't want to rely on them beating the Eastenders as a banker.
Only pass marks from me were a frustrated Raskin- Souttar ( in possession good and at least drove forward and was unlucky with ball in box for goal) and Butland - is Sima a player I also ask as still wait to be convinced. Our midfield was outplayed and outfought for long periods. Also Colak would have been a great sub to bring on but wonder if that will bite our arse as season goes on?
I can take a beating when the team turns up but that did not happen yesterday - MB this is your NEW team of players who FIT YOUR system - make sure they turn up and play like they know what they are doing and at least give us 100% on and off the ball - SIMPLE AS THAT.


16.) 06 Aug 2023 11:15:21
Have another look at that goal, Soutar expected one of them to get a nut on it and they didn't, this was a throw in not a cross at pace and 2 of them had no clue, Barasic didn't know what he should be doing just in that constant daze we have seen for a long time.

Btw that boy Armstrong is a handful, never stopped and grafted but of course up against dopey most of the time, don't sort that left side then things will continue to go wrong. It's like a goal of a start for anybody.


17.) 06 Aug 2023 11:26:05
Sima=Sadiq. What's the point in signing players and sticking with the ones who are rubbish?


18.) 06 Aug 2023 12:02:12
Personally think the game was lost on the lack of midfield presence. It was Raskin Vs 5 Killie players and I don't think we won a single loose ball the only time we looked "dangerous" using that very very loosely was when Soutter stepped in to the midfield beside Raskin.

I'm okay with lundstram starting but he has to be CM next to Raskin not RCB.


19.) 06 Aug 2023 12:44:05
There are some regulars who are all decidedly quiet?

A lot of posters sounding like me now.

But I know nothing apparently just because I'm not a sheep cheerleader.

Tried to warn you all about half this team and what we were letting go.


20.) 06 Aug 2023 12:54:00
The result v Killie was a sore one but did MB have a game plan?
We always seem to blame the pitch but that’s a poor excuse as Killie followed their game plan 100% in closing down the space and Rangers struggled to create very few goalscoring opportunities.
Thought Lewis Mayo had a very good game for Killie.
The tempo we played at was very pedestrian, and no width or pace in the forward areas.
Questions must be asked why Cantwell didn’t start and also Cifuentes could have featured in the last 20 minutes as MB said he can operate as a box to box midfielder.
Sakala might have been a player who could have made an impact from the bench but there are rumours that he could be leaving, which could be a mistake by MB.
It’s early in the season so hopefully we can learn from yesterday’s game sooner rather than later, because at Rangers you are always one defeat from a crisis.
Onto our next game v Servette so ?we can get a result on Wednesday to take to Switzerland.


21.) 06 Aug 2023 13:28:45
With no width yesterday would Sakala have not been the type of player we could have done with.


22.) 06 Aug 2023 13:43:50
said my piece re colak n sakala n i kept getting pelted about how terrible sakala is or was,
we replaced him with sima -a injury confidence lacking player

20 goals a season compared to sima

n colak a prolific proven goalscorer

too bring in lammers

iv heard its early n blah blah blah


but we got rid of good proven players too
bring in guys too fit a so called system i keep hearing about its nuts
said time n time again
selling colak n saka is a majour risk
too bring in players we don't know

n don't start me on our defence
total nosence or non defense

well so far that's us 3points behind
n being laughed at already

n i'm sick of excuses its not good enough

first game a the season
n we are chasing.


23.) 06 Aug 2023 13:58:34
Lol on the guy with the living room winds haha I thought the same when I saw lundstrums name. I’m still speechless after what I saw yesterday, I can honestly see Beale sacked if he doesn’t get the next few games right, I’m looking for positives guys but I’m struggling to see any.


24.) 06 Aug 2023 14:24:53
If he is stubborn and does not change the teams style of play and the intensity that play at he’s gone for start of September imo.


25.) 06 Aug 2023 14:44:05
It was like the dodgems in the Killie box, and if we can't defend a telegraphed long throw then somebody needs to find a defensive coach, maybe from a primary school team? If the left back wants to hide then sod off and hide somewhere else .


26.) 06 Aug 2023 15:01:10
WHAT? Is Mbs system?
I can't see one.


27.) 06 Aug 2023 15:01:46
Jester J was that not same tactics that won 55 yes or no.


28.) 06 Aug 2023 15:06:33
Explain the point of Lundstram to me please, we have had many dumplings in the past but he's up there dumpling wise.


29.) 06 Aug 2023 15:18:14
lunny n Baracic, showed now they are non starters brought us nowt yesterday

piss about with formations when your 3 nil up n always play your strongest team

i think he under estimated kilmarnock n all credit too them

but what worries me is too little too

we need too change tatics quickly in a game when our backs are against it

even when we did we have no impact subs colak. fasion

no wingers

we looked predictable n teams know this style as we played similar gerrad seasons

worked great in Europe
then leage we where poor
as had runners in kent
baracik was playing way better.


30.) 06 Aug 2023 15:34:00
Start looking for Beale replacement. Utterly lost yesterday.


31.) 06 Aug 2023 15:34:02
I can`t say I rate Sakala and I don`t think he is good enough consistently enough, but to sell him and replace him with Sima is a disgrace. I get it if he had signed for Brighton and couldn`t get a game but he had a season in France where he scored 6 goas and hardly set the place alight . That should be where we judged him not games against us 4 seasons ago. We keep loaning these players that are hopeless (exception being Tillman) . When are we ever going to get our scouting and recruitment right . I blamed Wilson to a large extent but who scouted and okayed this latest crop of mediocrity . Beale himself?


32.) 06 Aug 2023 15:37:32
This obsession with 55 is laughable as it is over and done with as we have done it and it is in the past and big deal Gerrard won title but wasn't a good manager and using Beale's predictable tactics isn't helping. He needs to develop a plan B and fast before we end up out of Europe and the title race by the next OF. It is one game in and I'm not pressing the panic button but Wednesday is massive for both him and the team.


33.) 06 Aug 2023 16:16:46
Armstrong who apparently isn't good enough for us was yesterday looking like Mbappe because of who and what he was up against, he shouldn't be good enough for Rangers but he was good enough against Rangers yesterday.

Btw Lammers didn't fancy the pitch, he was not involved at all, Dessers maybe thinks he's Pele so Danila should advise him he isn't.

Sima, well that beats me at the moment .


34.) 06 Aug 2023 16:22:57
Watch Lowry yesterday, Hearts delighted with him, we had him getting booted up and down the gaff in the hammer throwers league.

Mayo, man of the match so who is assessing these players and what is his Labrador called?


35.) 06 Aug 2023 16:29:54
The players acquired are good players but there can be no excuse for yesterday's result and 100% of the blame rests with Beale.
We cannot use the excuse of new players needing time to settle down, Kilmarnock had 8 new players in their team, we only had 5.

We cannot blame the pitch, yes it is the worst in the league but we had more players that have played competitive games on that pitch arguably than Kilmarnock.

For me, we started the wrong team, we have brought in a lot of new players but our defence with the exception of our keeper remains as was, and our defence was one of the weakest parts of the squad last season.

As for choosing Lundstram ahead of Cantwell, that is nothing short of a joke. Lundstram should be no where near the starting 11.

The lack of game time for players is also a pretty lame excuse especially since he left his two most recent signings on the bench and they have probably played more minutes than the others.

Those that said that Beale was not the answer may well be proved correct. Another poor result on Wednesday and any more defeats before the end of September and our Season could be over very early on!

We need to hope that Kamara, Sakala and ideally Lundstram and Barasic, can be moved on quickly and that we can bring in a winger, a quality left sided centre back and a left back without delay.


36.) 06 Aug 2023 17:01:55
Berkshire, excellent post.


37.) 06 Aug 2023 17:04:11
Players are rubbish. Season over.


38.) 06 Aug 2023 17:45:09
What a defeatest Robotman, wouldn't like you in the trenches beside me.


39.) 06 Aug 2023 18:56:17
Season not over but things need to change asap if we lose the auld firm will be really hard for us to come back from that.


40.) 06 Aug 2023 19:37:43
Jester, you are well named, Gerrard won the title but wasn`t a good manager? He`s the only decent manager we have had since 2012 when Walter retired. He rebuilt the football side of the club, restored our place in Scottish football and our reputation in Europe. Unless of course you are forgetting the fight for third the year before he came and the Progres result. Even the season he left, he left us 6 points ahead. The myth that Beale was the reason that we won under S. G is being well and truly exploded. He is no tactical genius although he does seem to be good at self promotion.


41.) 06 Aug 2023 19:51:23
If you look at way team is set up I actually think Beale is trying to copy man city.


42.) 06 Aug 2023 19:58:58
The players seem to be lost with beales tactics sirna runs about like a headless chicken dessers looks though he needs a preseason again to catch up with fitness going to be a long season if the manager sticks with constant 4-3-3.


43.) 06 Aug 2023 21:02:24
Who would all the moaners have played at LB yesterday if Barasic is soo bad?


44.) 06 Aug 2023 23:41:16
Gofor you were on here telling us all that Rangers didn’t need a new CM. We were sorted in midfield and could wait until January to get Cifuentes. You talk mince the same as everyone else.


45.) 07 Aug 2023 01:16:23
Barisic is one of the best LBs in Scotland. The guy had the 5th highest average match rating of every player in the SPFL last season. 9 assists and a goal in the league. People rave about Yilmaz but the fact of the matter is Barisic is keeping him out the team. GVB seemed to prefer Barisic more too and if anyone knows a LB it’s him.


46.) 07 Aug 2023 12:48:58
I thought barasic was out most consistent performer last season mate, then cantwell came in and prob took that from him but he still had a decent season.


47.) 07 Aug 2023 15:18:37
Verdant so you think raskin cantwell are not good enough?


I didn't quite say that I said we had numbers and should be selling first I even said about all the midfielders example.

Lundstrum
Davis
Raskin
Cantwell
Hagi
Jack
Sterling
Oboforh
Lawrence
Kamara
Dowell

I'm sorry but if Beale can't get a player capable of cm from that lot or even move some on before bringing in cifuentes then it's incompetent running of club.

And maybe you should stick to the facts of my points rather than creating your own narrative of what I said.

And i said I was really exited for cifuentes but we could wait and not pay fees that we don't need to on bosmans all the time not necessarily cifuentes just bosmans in general I also listed the amount of money that has went out door in fees for players in Thier last 6 months when we could have got them for nowt

I also said we should keep a hold of sakala and colak long before anyone else on here

Verdant so answer the question are raskin and cantwell not good enough?


48.) 07 Aug 2023 21:01:23
We needed an upgrade on Sakala and Colak, just as we needed an upgrade on the other players leaving. Whether those players that have come in are one or more levels up we will find out as the season progresses. Unfortunately, in replacing Sakala we needed to bring in a class winger, that hasn't happened.

Based on our defensive performance last season surely Beale's priority should have been to sign a quality left sided centre back. If Davies wasn't the answer then, before we spent funds on strikers, should we not have been buying a centre back. We criticise Borna and defensively he is weak, but given his proven ability going forward should we not have been concentrating on midfield reinforcements that can provide cover for when he ventures forward, and if we were offering a new contract then should he not have been given an ultimatum to sign or go.

Same with Lundstram, although God forbid that we give him a new contract. He is showing all the same traits as he did at Sheffield United which ensured that the fans were glad to see the back of him. I am still of the view that, in the main we have a good squad of players, yes a couple need to go and quickly and we need to sign a quality centre back and a winger, but here is the conundrum, will the Board want to give Beale any more funds, before they have the opportunity to see whether he actually can take us forward, especially if they had doubts in his appointment in the first place. In their position I certainly wouldn't at present!


 

 

02 Jul 2023 23:25:18
Reading Matondo has been told he can leave, clubs in England interested.

Mark44

1.) 02 Jul 2023 23:58:38
Rangers haven't said any of this mate.


2.) 03 Jul 2023 00:15:24
I’d like to see Matondo given a chance this season with a full pre-season under Beale. If we are to let him go i hope it’s only on loan because there’s definitely a player there.


3.) 03 Jul 2023 00:23:36
Shame think he would of been a decent player this season.


4.) 03 Jul 2023 01:37:55
Good idea.


5.) 03 Jul 2023 03:57:42
We’re trying to win a league, we don’t have time to give people chances, he’s been here a full season and done hee haw. He can run fast that’s about it. He misses scoring in front of open goals. He’s had his chance and didn’t take it.


6.) 03 Jul 2023 06:03:53
What open goals did he miss?


7.) 03 Jul 2023 06:23:40
Matondo plays his best football on the LW. Would you rather have him there or Sakala or Sima? Matondo just isn’t good enough.


8.) 03 Jul 2023 06:45:57
Not giving people chances?
Seems a good time to sign 8 newbies at once then!


9.) 03 Jul 2023 07:50:34
Azul Barisic first season was a disaster and he was outstanding in his second. The lads season was interrupted by injuries. He is a talented player that the coaches rate. I personally think we would regret it if we sold him.


10.) 03 Jul 2023 08:01:36
No time to give people chances but we’re giving people who haven’t performed (let’s be honest) chances, Lammers scoring record, Dowell injury and not playing, Butland been a bench warmer for a while even Cantwell wasn’t at before he got here! Not being a doom merchant I like the look of Lammers, Butland think Rabbi deserves the season to prove himself along with these guys think there’s a player in him.


11.) 03 Jul 2023 08:40:27
There's a guy at Notts Forest who likes Matondo could he work out a deal for Panzo with Matondo a makeweight?


12.) 03 Jul 2023 08:49:35
Ok let’s give him another season to find out if he might be good. Storm I can’t remember who we were playing but he beat the keeper, then shot the ball way wide of the target. Basically an open goal.


13.) 03 Jul 2023 08:53:50 But what was the difference between kent and rabbie, at least rabbie tried to take that over giving up.


14.) 03 Jul 2023 10:04:53
If Matondo is being given another chance then who leaves instead? Just a bit top heavy in forward areas now even more so if Danilo signs. Something has to give. Matondo/ colak/ wright are expendable.


15.) 03 Jul 2023 11:15:10
Yes Bigdado.


16.) 03 Jul 2023 11:52:53
And what about his man of match performance v stjohnstone when he scored and played well from left? He didn't get many opportunities on left side due to Kent when he's use simply as a pace winger to cross he's better. He's terrible on the right wing.

I think he deserves a chance still young but I don't think he will get it and instead will be moved on think Beale intends on a more creative flexible frontline.


17.) 03 Jul 2023 12:05:34
Low blocks don’t suit him, pace to burn but lack of space to run into is a big problem for him as he’s not a link type player. I’d punt him if decent offer received or use as a makeweight.


18.) 03 Jul 2023 12:34:00
Glad to see Matondo go, he is fast but I`ve never seen a player who falls over so much when trying to run with the ball. I don`t remember a MOTM performance from him at any time but I do remember him trying the same trick 4 times to beat the Livvy left back at Ibrox and losing the ball every time. We won`t miss him, he`s right up there with the worst signings we`ve ever made imho.


19.) 03 Jul 2023 21:24:38
Schalke dropped £10m on Matondo, I would have seen that as a clue.


 

 

03 Jun 2023 20:19:20
Reading that up to six clubs are looking at Kamara, Sheffield United and Southampton are two of the clubs, he looks certain to leave this window.

Mark44

1.) 03 Jun 2023 21:09:56
Hopefully get 4/ 5m still plays very good for Finland.


2.) 03 Jun 2023 21:58:25
I would now sell glen kamara.


3.) 03 Jun 2023 23:17:19
Glad a few interested. Been a good player but kept on too long and values plummeted. £3-4m as good as get I expect.


4.) 03 Jun 2023 23:19:15
Kamara £1m max is what he will fetch, probably Nice but if he has a choice of that or Sheffield and he picks the latter we will know he's mental.


5.) 04 Jun 2023 00:05:48
He goes for more than 1m fort.


6.) 04 Jun 2023 01:25:21
Fortissat, you're having a giraffe mate, I'd say 2-3m minimum.


7.) 04 Jun 2023 05:54:07
6 teams competing for him I bet you we get a lot more than £1m for him what a stupid figure to say.


8.) 04 Jun 2023 07:25:21
Why would he be mental to go to Sheffield utd. Many ayers want to play In the epl. Nowt wrong with ambition.


9.) 04 Jun 2023 07:25:33
I believe we will regret the decision to let Kamara go in the long run as he needs games to get confidence and in the right team he will flourish, he needs to be in a team that plays possession football so sheff utd probably not a good fit. Look at Billy Gilmour playing with Norwich he was in a team getting humped every week never having the ball chasing players all day long tackling, put him in a team like Brighton that have most of the possession and play football the right way and he does the damage with his ability to pick a pass which is exactly what Kamara needs if he goes although he should choose his team wisely or he will simply disappear like Aribo, good player wrong team.


10.) 04 Jun 2023 08:20:22
I tend to agree mcm. I'd like to see Glen stay.


11.) 04 Jun 2023 09:27:16
If we sell, Kamara, the most we'll get is 3m! Sounds mental, but for a player who is playing poorly, and not featuring much, can we expect any more?
Before anyone starts, I think he is worth more, but I have to be realistic. After seeing that R McCrorrie will leave for 3m, the thought of Kamara going for the same sort of money is mental, but I believe that's all we'll get for him.


12.) 04 Jun 2023 09:57:13
3.5m plus add ons is what Rangers want.

Romano stating that Rangers are pulling off a great move for Cifuentes as many English clubs are keen on him.


13.) 04 Jun 2023 10:14:10
Sincere apologies I really did mean to type £2m I think that's fair given the length of contract . (1 and 2 are close thegither on my device and I type with a toffee hammer.


14.) 04 Jun 2023 10:16:38
Oh aye the Giraffe thing someone mentioned, never seen one up close but do wonder how they would wear a tie . up top or doon the bottom of neck?


15.) 04 Jun 2023 11:23:21
Bottom fort lol.


16.) 04 Jun 2023 11:36:55
I probably am being ambitious looking for 4/ 5m I'm just trying to cover Olaru fee lol.

Beale it looks a bit daft either way .


18.) 04 Jun 2023 12:10:18
Seen one at a safari park fort, i think it would be cooler at the bottom ?.


19.) 04 Jun 2023 12:50:02
Beale i would go with 5 mill pounds for Kamara he was on Arsenals books for 4-5 years, before dundee fc somehow managed to nick him on a free, clearly there was some connection to the club or someone at the club managed to convince him, before Gerrard made his move knowing Glen's qualities, Just cause we got Kamara cheap doesn't mean we sell him cheap, 5 million pounds is fair, he is valued at 6 million euros right now, roughly 5 million pounds, sell him and buy Solbakken with the money, That way we get Solbakken for 50 grand technically, now that's a deal and a half, bye Glennnn ;) .
He will end in up the french premier league i reckon suits his style of play and he is good enough for that level, he still has 2 years left on his contract and in his prime at 27yrs old, a french team were going to spend more than 5 million quid not too long ago.
We have Raskin, Jack and soon Cifuentes to cover the CDM role.


20.) 04 Jun 2023 13:28:24
I really like Kamara as a player, but don't think he fits in to MBs system - so would like to see him move on.

I still think we can get around £5m for him.


21.) 04 Jun 2023 14:34:41
We can't expect bargains on players running down a contract then expect fortunes for players who we have that are doing the same . bit hopeful that. Btw what's Barisic worth, when he's awake of course .

On the Giraffe problem, would a scarf be better? saves using a shirt then we would need to find 2 pair of troosers .


22.) 04 Jun 2023 16:38:54
Mark

Wont be upset if goes. Prefer 5m disposable to perhaps add to cost of CF and CH.


23.) 04 Jun 2023 17:33:36
Barisic is currently valued at around 6 million Euros, however things to consider, he is now 30 years old, in the last year of his contract and not playing at his best of late, so i would say realistically around 3 million.
In 12 months he is a freebie for any suitors, more profit walking away for free unless he is sold.


24.) 04 Jun 2023 22:23:52
£3m for Barisic? yep take that sharpish.


25.) 05 Jun 2023 10:17:33
Tillman has told rangers he does not wish to play in our league.


 

 

17 Aug 2022 11:45:24
John have you any info about incoming or outgoing players? I'd imagine we'll do nothing to after the psv game, I'd like Roofe sold, long hard season ahead, we can't expect Morelos and Colak to play every game, roofe rarely seems available and gio doesn't seem to rate Sakala so imo we need another striker in regardless what euro competition we're in.

Mark44

1.) 17 Aug 2022 12:12:57
Who would you like to sell him to? Who do you think will buy him?


2.) 17 Aug 2022 13:09:20
Roofe/ Sakala/ Kent? / Morelos?
not aware of any interest in any of them - -cant sell if you don't have a buyer.


3.) 17 Aug 2022 13:25:16
Yes mark next week should be busy. There is interest in several our players.

Alf and kent I’m told still resigning.


4.) 17 Aug 2022 13:26:43
If we can get rid of Jack Simpson, we can get rid of Roofe.

When Roofe was linked with Derby their fans couldn’t believe their luck. There are clubs that want him it’s just a case of finding somone who can afford him. Maybe a Championship will cover some of his wages and we can put him out on loan.


5.) 17 Aug 2022 13:43:06
100% correct re roofe Verdant.


6.) 17 Aug 2022 19:40:18
Hope that's true in Kent and mo I'm doubtful with how long it's taking and starting to think it hinges on champions league.


7.) 17 Aug 2022 20:12:04
Mark44 what sort of striker would be happy to sit as third choice, maybe not even making the bench on some occasions? Nobody who is currently getting a game at any decent level, I'd presume.


8.) 17 Aug 2022 20:17:46
I like how your statement connected to after qualifiers John ??.


9.) 17 Aug 2022 21:13:05
tavsonloyal long season ahead, we're going to be in 4 competitions, there's no way Morelos and Colak can play every game, we need to rest players, plenty of game time available for another striker.

We've got to win this game in hand. I can see both us and Celtic dropping points before the end of the season. could be another helicopter Sunday.

Mark44

1.) 08 apr 2024 17:35:36
need to get back into a winning routine mark, , sima should help us in that, clement made a massive error of judgement with starting line up, hopefuly more settled from now in but we must be strong in every game now.


2.) 08 Apr 2024 18:15:20
Nice to see you back posting TT12?hope you and the family are doing well pal ?TT12 what's your thoughts and everyone else's thoughts regarding playing both sima and matondo to give us pace in abundance on both flanks, in the majority of our games left this season ?.


3.) 08 Apr 2024 18:50:54
His selections are partly due to the medical team telling him how many minutes players returning from injury can play. Starting Wright did not cause either of the two first half goals. We were dreadful in the first half. He will not risk losing the players to injury by rushing them back like we've done in the past.


4.) 08 Apr 2024 19:11:15
Tom, I hope we can sign Sima in the summer. he seems to divide opinion on here, but I think the boy is a player.


5.) 08 Apr 2024 20:01:09
Tom, his biggest mistake was playing Wright, I can understand why he went with Lawrence, but why Wright gets near the team is beyond me. He would struggle in the National league!
Hopefully with players coming back from injury we won't see Wright in a Rangers jersey again.

My worry is the defence, has been all season. I can't fault Tav as an attacking full back but defensively he is weak and we need two quality centre backs and a solid midfield to compensate. With Goldson and Souttar I'm not sure we have that.
We need at least one top quality new centre back for next season.


6.) 08 Apr 2024 20:12:36
Would love to see Sima signed permanently if it’s feasible.


7.) 08 Apr 2024 20:13:52
Couldn’t have put it better myself JFM, surely people realise that PC knows who’s better than who and it’s about playing the right players at the right time. Starting 11 told me we need strength in depth. Injuries been terrible but back ups lack quality.


8.) 08 Apr 2024 20:41:22
Hope we can get Oscar Cortes tied up, he was shaping up nicely before his setback.


9.) 08 Apr 2024 21:10:42
I’ve seen / heard a lot of folk saying Clement got the starting line up wrong. However unfortunately due to circumstances his hand was forced. He alteady clearly stated that a number of players weren’t able to play 90mins (some probably weren’t ready for anything more than 45). Therefore Sima could not have started. Also due to Ridvan’s injury and Barasic ‘being ill’ (was that just a polite way of Clement saying he doesn’t trust him? ) Sterling who probably would have started wide right had to play left back. So that leaves Wright or McCausland who is also not fully fit and has looked a shadow of himself the last few times he’s played. So reallly there wasn’t any other option. He obviously hoped we could keep things tight first half then go for it last 30mins and bring on the likes of Sima, Matondo and Cantwell to go for it. Unfortunately that game plan was gone in under 30 seconds?.

Went away for a walk at 2_0 down only to come back to see the 3_3 scoreline. delighted with the draw.

We got out of jail today, our defence is so vulnerable.


2.) 07 Apr 2024 15:40:45
Did they exactly same thing mark.


 

 

07 Apr 2024 10:08:08
It's this fixture that makes me wish I'd no interest in football. the nerves, fear, excitement, dread, anxiety, tension it causes makes me wonder is it worth it, but of course it is. good lucK to all bears today, wherever you are in the world.

Mark44

1.) 07 Apr 2024 10:59:17
From this old codger Mark, stay calm mate, what will be will be, I always had some nerves until someone scored, I was always positive though. WATP.


 

 

14 Mar 2024 21:53:07
Disappointed, but at least we can fully concentrate on the league now. Looking forward to this international break.

Mark44

1.) 15 Mar 2024 12:45:09
Brighton found out to their cost that European football is a step above domestic football. It showed where the weaknesses are in our team. Another round would have been handy - another £5m if nothing else. We keep marching.


 

 

08 Mar 2024 13:44:39
I can't remember a better signing than Jack Butland. some of his saves last night were top drawer.

Mark44

1.) 08 Mar 2024 15:02:30
What ever? Or recently?


2.) 08 Mar 2024 16:32:15
For me without Butland last night, i think we lose the game that’s how good he is.


3.) 08 Mar 2024 20:56:43
I think on current form, Butland is as good as we have ever had, hope he can keep it up.


4.) 08 Mar 2024 23:02:54
Agreed if JB can keep his form will be up there with one of our best signings.


5.) 09 Mar 2024 01:19:35
You realise how good he is when he has plenty to do, seemed to thrive on it, hopefully not as busy for a while tho.


6.) 09 Mar 2024 08:35:33
Raise, I meant recently. not just a fantastic keeper, but also has helped improve our defence.

It would be very difficult for Roofe to find another club if he doesn't retire. it's a case of what could have been with Roofe. excellent striker, but blighted with physical or mental problems. Whatever he does next season, I wish him well.

Possibly give him the first half. no room for error now after that result today.
