Are rumours of unrest in the dressing room true? 4 wins out our last 10 league games is poor considering the run we went on prior to that. I'm trying to pinpoint something that may have changed the players mindset and I go back to Clements press conference before benfica where I felt he had us beat before a ball was kicked with some comments?

Similar to comments made by Gio before champions league games. Just a thought, may not be any unrest but seems there was a mindset change at some point.

Monty telling players they would not be part of next season plans was the mistake.


2.) 21 May 2024 18:34:30
Agreed John, thought it might have been a wind up at the time, and did say it was crazy if true.


3.) 21 May 2024 18:40:24
I'm assuming this was a number of our English continent. It seems it's tav/ goldson/ Lundstram we have seen the biggest fall off.


4.) 21 May 2024 18:43:43
John, that’s what I put it down to although I’m sure it wasn’t as overt as that. At least I hope not. Clement is an intelligent man but I guess agents might be told and naturally they’ll tell players. It’s the only plausible explanation as some of the players have simply downed tools. I’d have thought if you had a chance of a medal in your career then you’d still bust a gut but maybe it’s only about money. Anyway, time to move on with a fresh, hungry squad. I actually want the weekend out the way so we can focus on revamping this tired team. Onwards.


5.) 21 May 2024 18:45:07
John iv read that's not the case unless you've info to bring.


6.) 21 May 2024 19:20:04
I think the players punched above their weight once Phil came in and eventually reverted back to type. Tavernier goldson Lundstram barasic and others have seen too many defeats and I feel they have PTSD when it comes to old firm games or games where we can go top of the league or stretch out a lead at the top. Injuries have played their part too but I feel a lot of our players don't have what it takes to win trophies regularly. Just my opinion.


7.) 21 May 2024 19:29:45
These players should have known they wouldn't be in the plans for next season due to the fact they've won next to nowt! Perhaps it was stated to see if any would improve and push on to win us the title? Either way, they should have offered much more last few games. We need a big change, because several of these current players are simply not good enough.


8.) 21 May 2024 19:38:05
One Walter I’ve already stated players were brought in and told, players we have needed from Celt game onwards.

Deals withdrawn, told no deals to come, told not part of plans next season. Tell me why certain players r not making themselves available.


9.) 21 May 2024 20:18:06
There's a rumour doing the rounds that there was a fallout between PC and Goldson regarding Goldson and some senior players asking for a bigger bonus if we won the league. Going by the rumour, PC was apparently raging with this.

**Disclaimer** This is not my rumour, and I'm only posting what is elsewhere, so please try and refrain from any hostilities. ?.


10.) 21 May 2024 20:55:18
Gal, I'm more inclined to your thinking. Also the guys who's form dropped off were the guys that basically played every minute of every game and looked tired to me.


11.) 21 May 2024 21:11:28
There had been rumours but they were Denied straight away 4LHAD brought it up and said what I have just replied.


12.) 21 May 2024 21:28:46
I struggle to believe that while we were going for the league he's brought players in to tell them they're not part of the plans.


13.) 21 May 2024 21:40:59
If PC made that decision that would be a serious error in judgement for such an experienced coach and lundstrum. is the only player I'm aware who's had an. offet withdrawn. only after he made it clear he was going.


14.) 21 May 2024 21:42:38
Fraser I tend to believe 4 lads because I can't believe any. manager would risk a title by such incompetence and if it turns out true I'd question PC man management skills going forward.


15.) 21 May 2024 21:43:26
John who are the players who are not making themselves available please.


16.) 21 May 2024 22:49:28
When are fans going to realise that perhaps it's not the recent managers who are the problem?


17.) 21 May 2024 23:00:03
Clemante seems an astute character, surely he didn’t take deals off the table or tell players they are not part of next season plans while we were chasing a treble. Surely if that was the case the board of directors would have told big Phil he had no future and sent him packing?


18.) 21 May 2024 23:06:45
Lets clear one thing up. These players have failed every season just about when the going gets tough. Its not them downing tools this is normal from them. RegardleSs of contract situation or going forward.


19.) 22 May 2024 00:43:17
I agree with John, either some players have been told they won’t be part of next season or in a round about way they’ve found out they’re not going to be and that’s spread about the dressing room to where they’re not pulling in the same direction! Have a suspicion it’s the serial loser group of senior players like Tav, Goldson, Barasic, Lundstrum, Jack, Roofe and the likes that’s at the heart of this - most have been hiding for months and Tavernier been taken off free kicks and corners the last few games shows there’s been a shift in his overall “leadership”.


20.) 22 May 2024 01:12:09
I think as much as Tav has made mistakes, he’s been one of if not the best player nearly every season for 9 years! If he moved up to winger he’d be perfect for another couple of years.


21.) 22 May 2024 05:51:01
If true about the bigger bonus then shameful always play for the badge win or lose, don't play for money n bonuses, yeah it's great, but wrong mentality, you always play 100% then if win league, or do cups
Bonuses n things come
If this is your soul focus in the dressing room it leads to unrest
As all want the same as the other
Beside him
You play for the team
The badge
The league, cups n medals, win first then have the honor too ask
Not spit the dummy before you win it.


22.) 22 May 2024 05:56:56
We need guys with grit, gutt, n honor, too play for the Jersey, not pack it in, if the money they agreed too doesn't temp them too win the league, specially high earners like goldson, if these rumours are to be belived
Go, leave, we don't need or want, it.


23.) 22 May 2024 08:12:55
If Goldson was told he was playing for his future at club in March to justify his earnings. Did he paas the mental test or did he wilt and fold. Gerrard comes in get him sold. Club can't afford him anymore. It's not just him sadly.


24.) 22 May 2024 07:20:25
O Walter, roofe Jack Barisic all claim not fit to play

There is chatter re Goldson.


25.) 22 May 2024 07:58:33
Who hasn't made themselves available exactly? The only one could be goldson and that's an apparent serious injury.

Lundstram has played exc suspension, tav has played, Lawrence has played, Dowell is back, davies is playing.

Am I missing something?


26.) 22 May 2024 09:27:18
3 playersjohn who every fan wants out the door and 2 roofe and Jack were constantly unfit for previous managers and all 3 would've known they were not part of the managers plans well before March so I don't buy that's the case and good riddance to all players ooc who've failed the club previous gaffers and fans for too long.


27.) 22 May 2024 10:02:12
change brings uncertainty. remember when Walter announced he was leaving at the end of the season when we were chasing 10 in a row. that announcement cost us the league.


28.) 22 May 2024 10:10:43
Tav is not a winger never will be a winger and should not be at rangers next season.


29.) 22 May 2024 10:19:33
He said himself it’s the end of a cycle. It happens all the time. Should have happened with Gio and then made worse when Beale went back. Now is the time. I love Jack but time to go like it was for many rangers players over the years.


30.) 22 May 2024 10:21:07
One Walter and do you not tell player’s anymore that there contract is not being renewed

Only four weeks ago Roofe said he wanted to stay.


31.) 22 May 2024 10:41:27
to be honest I would have told them all at winter break that their positions at the club were on the line.

The real players would show up and prove themselves.
The weaker players would shrink and we can now identify those players and get rid of them. Yes it may have cost us this years league title but to be honest not buying a good striker (cough* shankland *cough) cost us the league anyways.
And another thing, Celtic were terrible for that spell and we all know that spell wouldn't last and they finished the season strong, compared to us that bottled it.

Plan properly for next season and get a good clear out, sign some young talent (Watson, Barron, Miller, i'd even look at Theo Bair at this point) .

League title next season is a must and hopefully PC is the man to bring it home.


32.) 22 May 2024 15:10:59
John if roofe thought 4 seeks ago he had a chance of another contract at rangers then he was the only 1 because he's never been fit long enough to justify a contract being offered and the same re jack as for bb he'd have known long before March he was away and of the players you've named they've been out injured for long periods also is PC lying about goldson being injured because if he's not making himself available he can't be all of this is people trying g to find excuses for our challenge failing when the facts are we've been hampered by terrible injuries and a core of players reaching the end of there time who simply haven't been good enough to maintain a challenge.


33.) 22 May 2024 16:44:47
But Jack is fit and going to Germany, rangers protection Goldson, same as they done re Davies and Souttar

Not excuses fact

But I’ll post even less. As I’ve told u b4 read what is posted and decide what is credible and what is not.


34.) 22 May 2024 20:11:09
Folks I never understand the falling out on here. So looking at John's posts. I for one have always believed that footballers like any other employee will do what's right for them. Is it possible due to Goldsons son he can't paly due to mental issues thus protected.

Don't really know anything about to to be honest. Davis and Souter being mentioned. Is Jack keeping himself fit for Scotland but not for Rangers, to allow him to play in a major championship. Are Rangers helping him to achieve that fitness wise and he is not part of the future. Who knows. He did single out Lundstrum for his effort in the last couple of months, maybe playing with niggles etc again who knows.

I suppose its sometimes about duty of care and a bit of give from the employer. not always Rangers to the core. What it has shown is that we don't have strength in depth and that a new leadership core is required.


35.) 22 May 2024 21:41:38
If what john27 said is true and John regularly posts reliable information then this was a bad move by PC. I can understand others posts finding it hard to believe but none the less if true it’s very concerning. I also agree with other replies that a lot of these players have consistently let themselves, the team and the fans down when the pressure is on. Who knows what goes on behind the scenes with these players and perhaps they forced the managers hand with bad attitudes etc. It is genuinely time for big changes at Rangers, If we ever want to move forward. Hopefully the board and the manager find a way ?.

Liam Kelly is lined up to replace McCrorie I'm hearing. Fits same criteria as Robby for Europe.

Monty2488

1.) 02 Aug 2023 21:14:11
Could do worse than Kelly. Why not a loan swap for the season?


2.) 02 Aug 2023 21:16:04
Motherwell number 1, captain. Scotland goalie. To number three mb two.


3.) 02 Aug 2023 21:25:49
If McCrorie goes I would be quite happy with Kelly and he should be backup to Butland. Surely, Beale isn't going to have McLaughlin as back up!


4.) 02 Aug 2023 21:52:14
Do u think John we could offer Motherwell la loan swap for Kelly?


5.) 02 Aug 2023 23:31:32
a loan swap our number 3 for your first choice goalkeeper who is your captain do yous seriously think that would happen.


6.) 03 Aug 2023 03:32:12
Can’t sleep up for toast n jam.
When I first suggested it mate I wasn’t aware Kelly was Motherwell captain. In fact it couldn’t remember where he went after livi off top of my head. But I think now was qpr as no2? Then Motherwell. ?
Anyway, instead of mccrorie being referred to as our no3 n him as captain etc. I’d look at it as talent. I think mccrorie every bit as good a keeper as Kelly and the only reason it wouldn’t happen is Kelly’s international chances. But Gunn has that nailed down now. So if we sweetened the deal with say £200k? Why not Motherwell struggle to kb that money, Kelly might fancy a crack at no2 for us? But no I don’t expect him to come as no3
I’ve a feeling any keeper coming in would be as no2 or else we wouldn’t go for them. Kieran wright is no3 if jono is no2 then we don’t need a keeper. If we bring a keeper in it’s as a 2 with jono and mccrorie moving on.


7.) 03 Aug 2023 07:36:14
Stevie not a chance.


8.) 03 Aug 2023 07:43:54
I think everyone is missing the all important part, IF the Kelly rumour is true, he is a former Rangers player so he he knows the expectations of the club, he’s a Rangers supporter too and gets what it is to pull on the blue jersey (or yellow in his case) but the type of voice we need in the dressing room, it’s all very well having all these great players coming in (great on paper and for the club they’ve come from) but a lot of them don’t understand the difference between playing at clubs who are afforded draws and certain losses by their fans where as we expect them to win every time they go out on that pitch to represent our institution, having Gers men in the dressing room can help get that message across, even just on the pitch, you look at that mob across the city and how their performances dip slightly when their captain is absent from the games. Something we haven’t had since Barry was captain is someone to grab the team, NOT the game, the team, by the scruff of the neck and drag them through the matches where teams have battled hard or where they needed a kick up the arse during an Old Firm, I’m not saying LK would be the answer to that but being Motherwell club captain can only help, I think Niko and Cantwell will be very prominent this year in their leadership on the pitch, Tav for me is never a Rangers captain, great servant to the club but never seen him vocal enough for my liking, what I did like in the Hoffenheim game was Jack Butland holding the ball and talking to his back 4 about what they need to stop, what they need to do better and that’s exactly why Jon M should never be back near our playing squad, that and THAT pass in the OF!


9.) 03 Aug 2023 07:45:29
Could buy and offer a loan as part of the deal?


10.) 03 Aug 2023 08:23:02
Maybe his younger brother Shay that plays with St Mirren.


11.) 03 Aug 2023 08:34:33
Ms r u saying we should be signing shay Kelly,


12.) 03 Aug 2023 09:29:31
Nah John, just think its highly unlikely we would sign Liam to replace Robbie when Liam left in a similar position to seek first team football, I have heard Shay is a cracking keeper right enough but would be lying if i said i'd seen him play.


13.) 03 Aug 2023 09:36:12
Kelly dumped by Rangers previously and didn't do well at QPR, not quite what we need . McCrorie should accept his position and stay as there are not many options whereby he will earn as well or be number 1 at a good level . No rumours of interest in him .


14.) 03 Aug 2023 10:43:20
John what is it your saying no chance to mate? Just cause I said a few diff things in post mate. Cheers.


15.) 03 Aug 2023 11:20:46
Kelly coming to rangers as a r three or any form of swap deal.


16.) 03 Aug 2023 11:22:58
Why would give up being a no.1 to come to us and be no2 or 3.


17.) 03 Aug 2023 12:53:11
Not as daft an idea as it sounds, apparently has only a year left on his deal and is stalling on signing another one. If McCrorie does leave we could maybe pick him up for less than we bring in and sweeten the pot by loaning or selling them McLaughlin. McLaughlin is also in the Scotland reckoning and a good year there could push him back into the squad .


18.) 03 Aug 2023 13:38:07
Kelly’s a great keeper definitely happy with this one.


19.) 03 Aug 2023 14:48:30
If Kelly has a year left on his deal and is stalling then he either fancied going down south, he may well be happy at coming to us as 2 with bus moving on jono and mccrorie this would prob save us money and I’d say Kelly better than mcglaughlin and not much in it with mccrorie but I’d still prefer keep mccrorie atm
Unfortunately Beale sees mcglaughlin a better option the Robbie for reasons that bewilder me.


20.) 03 Aug 2023 16:21:11
Can't be any worse than McLaughlin.

Oh but apparently McLaughlin good with ball at his feet if you listen to folk on here a year ago. ?.


21.) 03 Aug 2023 20:33:56
Not that it matters but I believe he is a Celtic fan. Just I seen someone comment he’s a rangers fan, not to my knowledge. He would be coming as a 2 with K Wright 3rd choice. Sell Robby, sell or release Jon.


22.) 04 Aug 2023 06:00:13
We should be looking to promote a youth keeper.


 

 

17 Jul 2023 17:00:14
Danilo has jetted out to Austria with Feyenoord apparently. Looks like this may not be happening this week after all. I may add this is tabloid news so take what you want from it.

Monty2488

1.) 17 Jul 2023 17:22:38
Colak also went to Germany, can easily leave from camp.


2.) 17 Jul 2023 17:33:07
If or when danilo comes to ranger55 or not we will see in due course untill then he jet off to were ever with feyenoord same as cifuentes or who ever else ger55 are looking to sign.


3.) 17 Jul 2023 17:50:24
Think we have a problem here, if the lad himself wants to come he’s going to have to push for it himself, and I don’t think WE will wait. Shame if we don’t wait as he would suits Beale system.


4.) 17 Jul 2023 18:41:12
I doubt danillo will sign unless sakala definitely sold.

I'm in minority I think that would keep sakala.


5.) 17 Jul 2023 19:28:00
The reports on here that they’re working on bringing in a replacement before selling him will be on the right track imo. We clearly were doing the same and not selling players until suitable replacements were in. Would keep an eye out for feyenoord bringing in a new striker and hopefully that’ll be the key indicator of when Danilo will come.


6.) 17 Jul 2023 20:10:50
Until a bud is accepted he will continue to play in friendlies and attend training camps.
It’s clear he wants to come and we want him. Additional revenue for Colak, Wright and Kamara should give us what we need to get this and Cifuentes over the line.


7.) 17 Jul 2023 20:19:36
Austria isn't that far away, maybe thinking of Australia?


8.) 17 Jul 2023 22:32:27
Don’t think Sakala is a factor in the Danilo signing.


 

 

11 Jul 2023 22:44:21
I hope the Balogun rumours are nonsense. now Kings apparently broke his ankle the rumour probably has legs! Deary me! QPR didn't even extend his deal and they are dug meat! Be better keeping Mayo, he's just off the back of a full Scottish premiership campaign. Balogun is NOT the answer! Whose breaking teammates ankles in training ?.

Monty2488

1.) 11 Jul 2023 23:12:05
mayo isn't rangers standard.

For 1 year at 4th choice, needed for maybe 30% of games, with his leadership on and off the pitch and his love for the club, he'll be fine.


2.) 11 Jul 2023 23:22:01
We need to sign both trusty and panzo asap after kings injury.


3.) 11 Jul 2023 23:43:24
Mayo is right footed but he spent the year at Kilmarnock at LCB.


4.) 11 Jul 2023 23:44:16
Andy dyou really think we have 9m to drop on 2 lefty defenders, 1 of which won't be a guaranteed starter? King being out doesn't change our starting situation.


5.) 12 Jul 2023 00:32:51
Mayo probably just as good as king have friends who are Killie fans said he was there best centre half by a distance.


6.) 12 Jul 2023 02:04:55
Weve just got rid of the old brigade now signing another 1. Who will likely be injured 75% of the time. Very pleased with the transfers so far but this one no.


7.) 12 Jul 2023 07:04:55
Balogun was only fit to play 15 league games ot of 46 last season.


8.) 12 Jul 2023 07:31:01
We don't need Balogun to come back as cover, Lunstrum drops into that role if needed more than comfortable, let's just proceed with our original plans and targets.


9.) 12 Jul 2023 08:20:42
Think Balogun will be handy as cover while King recovers, remember Balogun being used to cover Tav as well.


10.) 12 Jul 2023 08:41:26
Do we not need more scottish registered players if kings out?


11.) 12 Jul 2023 08:57:04
Exactly jr. We were not playing anyway. 95% on here wanted him away on loan.

It’s the balogun talk that’s embarrassing.


12.) 12 Jul 2023 09:11:58
JR why advocate playing a midfielder in defence? I'd much rather have an actual defender there rather than playing someone out of position. In fact, I'd rather not play Lundstram at all if I am totally honest.


13.) 12 Jul 2023 09:17:56
JR1972 midfielders playing at the back cost us just about every trophy last season.

GC i think yiure telling porkies. Mayo had a woeful start to the season and picked up slightly towards the end. He is at best a killie centre half.


14.) 12 Jul 2023 09:32:46
Clearly our manager disagrees. I John any updates on the central defenders we are int in? If rumours of a 4.5m bid for danilo do we have money to sign a defender.


15.) 12 Jul 2023 10:14:57
Exactly John an injury prone defender to cover injury prone defenders ??‍♂️. Mayo should be kings back up and we should sign a quality cb asap! Anyone wanting balogun is insane! 35 year old! Goldson souttar Davies Mayo and another quality cb more then enough! Balogun waste if a wage!


16.) 12 Jul 2023 14:04:46
Mayo needs to stay and Balogun should only be a gap-filler.
Still feel we need a dominant CH to be brought in as well!


 

 

09 Jul 2023 19:11:56
Traore is back home due to a death in his family. he's not at sheff utd for a medical! Confirmed by his club president.

Monty2488

1.) 09 Jul 2023 20:40:17
Yes, read that last night. Think MB wants this guy. It fits a good sell on - if he matches his reputation
Knew there was bs when no media outlet reported medical at Sheffield.


2.) 09 Jul 2023 21:36:55
Yip benie traore would be a very good signing for us, if we could get him and at a relatively young age ?.


3.) 09 Jul 2023 21:45:32
I feel he’s be a better option than Danilo as he is more likely to accept playing back up to start with. Don’t want 2 £5m strikers coming in at same time and both expecting to be 1st choice as it would instantly cause a bit of bad atmosphere even if not meant by the players. Traore is younger and more likely to accept 2nd fiddle and relish the challenge of proving himself.
Also likely he will have a better sell on value.
Traore just seems a better fit.


4.) 09 Jul 2023 22:41:43
Both Danilo and Dessers can play at the same time. Danilo can play as a number 10 behind the striker/ s. Rangers deployed a split striker formation at points last season with a false 9 in between pulling out defenders.

I think Danilo is very much like Morelos but with a lot more compose in front of goal. He can offer us that sort of player and we’ve benefited from it immensely in r event years. Ronald de Boer said Dessers was a very different kind of striker who liked to use his physicality and stayed around the box a lot more.

Danilo is very versatile and gives us a different option. I absolutely hope we get him in.


5.) 10 Jul 2023 00:34:31
That’s all very well verdant but Sam lammers is going to be the one playing off the 9 and sima on the other side cantwell linking middle to front.
Strength in depth is great but we certainly can’t afford unrest in the squad and a £5m sun who expected to be 1st choice. I’d guess the Danilo thing is dead and he was 2nd choice to dessers who was 2nd choice to hadji wright.

When u throw in the rest of the attacking squad players we now have I don’t see Danilo happening mate.
More likely Traore or maja now I think. We need to spend on a defender in fact 2.


6.) 10 Jul 2023 03:24:49
Stevie - Danilo could be better than Lammers. Sima is only here for a year on loan. Danilo is a different type of player than Dessers and might be the better option as the lone CF in some matches. If Cantwell was injured or suspended then Danilo could perform that CAM role in a 4-3-3.

Danilo is a quality player. He would provide not only strength in depth, but he would allow the manager to switch up systems. I really do hope we get him.

Danilo, Cifuentes, and a new LCB, and I think this team would be ready to go.


7.) 10 Jul 2023 07:02:56
I agree danilo is quality ?.


8.) 10 Jul 2023 07:13:53
Verdant I reckon we will need 2 new solid CB's if we are going into the Champions league group stages.
Only Goldson is on that level, Souttar has never played in the champions league, and Davies is shocking at that level, none of the young lads are ready for that kind of test as demonstrated in the liverpool game where we got slaughtered, as soon as Goldson went off injured, liverpool exploited the back line weaknesses perfectly.


9.) 10 Jul 2023 08:54:52
Listen mate if we go get Danilo and everything is riser in the squad then by all means let’s do it. I would’ve rather him than dessers anyway.
Let’s see what happens, certainly not going to complain at signing good players mate.

Clement needs to get it right in the summer or it will be deja vu before Xmas! Team selection was shocking today! Ridvan not fit enough to start? Ben Davies hasn't started since December! Take the risk! Lundstram a man down for weeks! Honestly man I hate this feeling! No one can ruin a weekend like rangers!

Monty who r u playing instead of Davies.


2.) 11 May 2024 17:13:46
Davies was fine and what of we took the Rosk on yolmaz and he ended up out for longer where's the duty of care to the player or the respect for medics long gone are the days when a club could run a player into the ground not caring about consequences lunny I agree but hindsight is a wonderful thing.


3.) 11 May 2024 17:20:33
I put up a big post about PC. i'm sorry but doubts are starting to set in. Every old firm game we get done in the midfield. Same again today. Sterling should have been in there. AGAIN we play this formation without the personnel. It's inexcusable. Yes I know we have injuries and I know these aren't his players but mix it up! Bring on Ross Mac who hasn't done anything in weeks. Raskin is a starter now surely. We have no pace in that team at all. Especially the midfield.


4.) 11 May 2024 17:22:38
I thought Davies played well. Probably not big enough for the SPL but he played well today which is some statement considering we were awful.

I have to agree with you, if PC starts slow next season and still can’t beat Celtic then he won’t be here.


5.) 11 may 2024 17:25:11
i have serious concerns about the manager and every time i try to understand the last 6 weeks they get more and more concerning

there's no rhyme nor reason to any of it.


6.) 11 May 2024 17:32:17
Monty clement probably played the best/ fittest available. He trained them all week so he should know. He needs a really good window/ windows mate that’s for sure but as they say ( you can only piss with the cxxx you have)!


7.) 11 May 2024 17:37:52
Ben Davies wasn’t the problem today, we never had a midfield.
I was really concerned that Tom Lawrence would play sadly my concerns were realised waste of a shirt. My son watched the game with me today he is an Arsenal fan he said you don’t have a midfield we were shapeless.


8.) 11 May 2024 17:54:22
PC has the summer to sort this or he will be jettisoned out the door. Not good enough. I would write a list of who should go but be easier writing who should stay. Butland will hopefully stay but if we get a decent offer he is gone. i'd keep Sterling. Sima would be good to keep. Danillo and Cortez. All the rest can jog on.


9.) 11 May 2024 18:08:47
Otters you need a squad with some experience so I’d also keep
Souttar, yilmas diomande dessers raskin mb cantwell mccrorIe.


10.) 11 May 2024 18:22:58
I didn’t think Davie’s had a bad game to be honest.
We went playing well and didn’t deserve to win the game even before Lundstrum got sent off and that certainly didn't help things.

Big rebuild needed, but has been needed for a few years.


11.) 11 May 2024 19:07:12
Problem is with that don’t see the likes of Cantwell, Raskin and Dessers just being squad players, that’s when players could move on if the right offer comes in, expect us to go for upgrades in all the above positions, if we don’t be much of the same.


12.) 11 May 2024 19:14:02
TT12, if you don't mind me asking mate, who would you want instead of clement as our manager ?I still want to give him a chance to rebuild and bring his own players in, but i do agree that some of his team selections have been baffling and this constant chopping and changing out with our injuries surely has to be cortailed ? It's baffling when for example he'll bring in scott wright out the blue when he's been nowhere near it for ages ?.


13.) 11 May 2024 19:50:28
We have a number of players leaving at the end of this season that this season and arguably last season have contributed little for various reasons. The fact that with or without these players we have trailed Celtic and we just can't compete with them in a one on one encounter.
We need to significantly up the quality and the character of the players in our squad.
We need to have a mixture of experience and young players that are better than what we have generally had over the past seasons.
When we talk about experienced players I am not talking about Souttar who is as poor as the other defenders at the club.


14.) 11 May 2024 20:50:11
Coops he wanted Duncan Ferguson not so long ago so better not asking him that.

I'd happily sell Tav and Goldson this summer. 7.5m for Tav and 3.5m-4.5m for Goldson would be good business in my opinion. We need to bring in money selling players come the summer. 4.5m of our budget is already being spent on Diomande.

Fans also want Sima permanently. I'd let both them go along with all our out of contract players. Scott wright, Ben davies, Rabbi Matondo also need moved on. Matondo on far too high of a wage for an "impact player". Not consistent enough to start games. Can be excellent and hopeless but more the latter. Big rebuild needed this summer again!

Monty2488

1.) 25 Apr 2024 19:34:29
Any of our players should be sold if a decent offer is made, we must always have recruits identified to replace those that move on . Selling Tav and Goldson this summer would probably be the last time we could.


2.) 25 Apr 2024 20:02:23
It would be incredible business to get those sums for Tav and Goldson.

I agree, in that I wouldn't offer any of the OOC players a new deal.

In terms of the 4 loanees, I don't think we sign anyone other than Dio on a permanent deal and suspect we'll see Coartes in another loan.


3.) 25 Apr 2024 20:03:46
???.


4.) 25 apr 2024 20:37:39
if your wanting 7.5 for tav it will have to be from sandilands because nobody else will pay that, but I've said fir years this defence needs replacing, at least 2-3 years out of date imo.


5.) 25 Apr 2024 20:52:04
Monty 4.5m for Goldson come on mate get in the real world.


6.) 25 Apr 2024 21:54:37
Spot on Tomt.


7.) 25 Apr 2024 22:08:05
I agree TT and have said for a while it’s needs replacing also.


8.) 25 Apr 2024 23:13:40
Please stop quoting these type of figures. There's no way we're going to get anything like 10-15 million I've seen mentioned on here for the pair of them. Only going to lead to disappointment. Most people recently have said they want rid but then expect mega money? It's not going happen. More likely around 4-5m for both not each.


9.) 26 Apr 2024 01:13:34
Our mistake was not upgrading several positions after winning 55. Then when Gio faltered, taking the easy route and giving funds to Beale to squander. Summer will be our most important window in years.


10.) 26 Apr 2024 06:25:56
Monty - Agree re Matondo - just another flash in pan winger type who brings something to table one game in five if we are lucky - as I previously mentioned can't remember when he has started a game without being hooked and producing any great things when he has started - we need someone with more consistency and Cortez kinda looked that guy until injured- and spot on Pauly a good solid window in summer needs to set us up as we have had many false dawns with windows filled with over expensive under achievers with no resale value in recent past -our hopes and dreams are in your hands Phil!


11.) 26 Apr 2024 12:32:28
Have to say if Goldson and Tav are worth a combined £12-15million. Why on earth are we selling them?
We wouldn't spend that amount on 2 players coming in.
Thinking some posters are over inflating here. Be lucky to get £5million for both if we are honest.


12.) 26 apr 2024 13:22:51
tav and goldson are of very little value to anyone,


13.) 26 Apr 2024 15:16:50
I can see the Saudi's paying a decent fee for Tav and although some might not see it, he will be a success out there if he can settle.
This is a country where money is no object and even a fee of £5m / £10m to secure the top scoring defender in the UK who has won The league and a Cup as well as captaining his side to a European Final, will be box office.
We need to stop down playing our own players just because they play in a rubbish league like the SPL.
With Goldson he doesn't have the track record of Tav., in terms of goals scored, deadball accuracy etc., and as such I would be surprised if we could secure even £2m for him even if the Gerrard press rumours were true.
The biggest benefit for us is getting him off our books and saving his wage so long as we don't then throw the money away on another poor signing.

Aw aye and Mayo wasn't good enough for us either eh! ?.

Monty2488

1.) 05 Aug 2023 19:36:44
No, he was not. His performance today does not change that fact.


2.) 05 Aug 2023 19:45:12
Mayo isn’t good enough for us he’s found his level.


3.) 05 Aug 2023 19:46:52
Correct he wasn't.

05 Aug 2023 16:37:38
Strange 11 in my opinion! Lundstram has been hopeless! Danilo on the bench! He had a full pre season at feyenoord and fans desperate to see him in action! Sima not offered much either yet starts again! Cantwell on the bench as well.

Monty2488

1.) 05 Aug 2023 16:58:49
Lundstrum playing today cause we need a bit of steel in mf and we only have him and Jack. Not worth risking Jack on that turf
I think if true about the qpr boy and he’s any good we really need to get it done. If not true we need another tough tackling workhorse in the squad. Move lunny on but for now he’s a must.


2.) 05 Aug 2023 16:59:10
It’s a squad we have and it will take a few weeks for the team to settle. No one should be guaranteed a start and it will change as the season goes on. The bench looks stronger with more options.


3.) 05 Aug 2023 18:06:31
Sima and lundstrum only two creating where is Lammers

Stevie qpr boy played lch, had a mare.


4.) 05 Aug 2023 18:47:57
Did he John, that’s a pity mate, we need a tough centre mid and a lcb so not a good sign unless he’s unsettled.
U any idea on which centre backs we’re looking at now after trusty kb’d us?


5.) 05 Aug 2023 19:43:48
Creating what exactly!?

If Davies goes we will sign another cb who will replace balogun in euro squad. unless that defender is Scott McKenna. I have also heard we will sign Shankland before window closes.

Not that it matters but I believe he is a Celtic fan. Just I seen someone comment he’s a rangers fan, not to my knowledge. He would be coming as a 2 with K Wright 3rd choice. Sell Robby, sell or release Jon.
