Hearing from a neighbour who has been sent a text from his best pal. He says the pal lives next door to Graham Shinnie and he has maintained he has signed a pre contract with us. Don't shoot the messenger guys, just passing on what i've heard.


{Ed033's Note - His best pal doesn't wear a suit does he? :)

1.) 01 Jan 2019 23:37:25

I trust you. You are a Bear without doubt. Was your neighbour lip reading?

I need to know.

2.) 02 Jan 2019 06:55:41
Ha ha, maybe i dreamt this, coolatballet! Hope so as I don't rate Shinnie. Waa he not on our books as a youngster?

3.) 02 Jan 2019 09:16:08
Always says shinnie would be a good signing! But with the number of centre midfielders at us just now it looks unlikely. I can't see us buying coulibaly in summer so maybe happen. Again when we signed Ryan Jack everyone says he wasnt good enough. shinnie would be a good signing.

4.) 02 Jan 2019 09:19:04
Are you allowed to sign a pre contract for a club in the same country? πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§.

5.) 02 Jan 2019 09:35:23
Not sure Yately. I thought we had done this before but can't recall who it was for. Or maybe it was Ryan Jack? Did we not sign him on a pre contract?

6.) 02 Jan 2019 09:39:31
Yes, I'm certain you are yately1.

7.) 02 Jan 2019 09:52:30
Think it depends on what country you are in. We signed Jack on a pre contract did we not? Or maybe it was because the window had closed.

8.) 02 Jan 2019 12:18:56
Rite bears if there was 3 signing thro the door in Jan who would u want mine Davis, shanklands worth a punt, and last Alan Hutton.

9.) 02 Jan 2019 12:43:42
You can sign pre contract with anyone. Only thing the same country signing is if they are under 23 for the development compensation. Its higher if player plays in same country but cheaper if say we got youngster on pre contract from England.

10.) 02 Jan 2019 13:39:56
we had Andrew Shinnie don't think Graham.

11.) 02 Jan 2019 13:40:22
they are brothers.

12.) 02 Jan 2019 14:34:37
Aye Deeb, googled it earlier!



06 Apr 2017 22:42:47
I'm hearing from a reliable source that MOH is absolutely hating life at Rangers and can't wait to leave. Also, the players in general are not enamoured with PC or his training methods.

Apparently during one session he was advising them to "caress the ball". Nobody had an idea as to what he was on about!
Funnily enough I heard his after match comments the other night and for the life of me I didn't know what he was talking about. Worrying times.


1.) 06 Apr 2017 23:39:04
Because he has been found out for being the avarage at best player he is pace and nothing else

2.) 07 Apr 2017 00:51:49
Need to suck it up and get on with it if they aren't happy tough the fans have had 5 years of it being tough and soldierd on as for MOH if he isn't happy bolt won't be missed.

3.) 07 Apr 2017 08:02:18
A first touch like nacho novo, brutal!

4.) 07 Apr 2017 09:05:48
"Caress the ball" means look after the ball, good touch, find a team mate, you know the basics of a good footballer. the players should start listening to Pedro rather moaning! The extra Wednesday training session should be spent on hitting the target our poor goal return is why we are so far off the pace.

5.) 07 Apr 2017 10:53:15
Ohh a coach with some actual ideas who doesn't want to hump it beyond the fullbacks like your normal Scottish coaches. No wonder our players are getting a shock. They done it to PLG and they will try to do it to PC but our club needs to be modernised.

6.) 07 Apr 2017 11:23:58
Yeah caress it, look after it, keep it, hold onto it, control it. Can't do any of the above and don't understand what the manager is talking about. Doesn't surprise me one bit. Team full of 3rd division players wanting to play kick and rush because they got found out this year

7.) 07 Apr 2017 14:07:03
If that's the case maybe they should spend the extra day on Wednesday doing some english lessons as it's quite simple to understand what is meant by "caress the ball". Sounds more like players are either thick or acting facetious.

8.) 07 Apr 2017 12:56:45
Jim Baxter, Pele and George Best all talked about caressing the ball, but you're saying the players don't understand what it means? And maybe MOH hates it because he's not up to it, he's been found out as someone who couldn't caress the ball if his life depended on it. Funny, most players have been reported elsewhere as really enjoying the training sessions, but obviously it's a rumours site so you can say the first thing that comes into your head.

9.) 07 Apr 2017 13:22:13
I will drive him or any other of the bang average players we have on our books to whichever team in the uk they "think" will want to employ them, only Foderingham and the youngsters excluded from that!

10.) 07 Apr 2017 13:24:13
Could be something in it as anytime I have seen footage of them in training the players have looked a bit non plussed when Pedro has been talking to them, not much to go on I know but wouldn't surprise me all the same.

11.) 07 Apr 2017 13:28:51
Both MCKay and Ohalloran are major under achievers at rangers principally because they both have ability but for whatever reason don't produce often enough. In O'haaloran's case he hasn't produced since joining the club. They can both go. Get some decent cash for them and march on.

12.) 07 Apr 2017 13:38:34
Well said Reidy09, its not exactly rocket science and if a pro footballer doesn't no what that means we really are in trouble. and as for MOH, i'm absolutely hating him being in the squad.

13.) 07 Apr 2017 13:41:28
Why not say hold it, pass it, play it. Keep it simple. Always the best way. Obviously not for the football managers on here.

14.) 07 Apr 2017 15:07:46
They don't understand 1 word and you want to replace it with 4. still think they won't get it as they just don't care nor want to buy in as they are use to the easy holiday camp they had under the bread man and going back to mccoist times as well.

15.) 07 Apr 2017 15:57:31
Seeker, how do you know he doesn't use these terms as well? Hold it, pass it, play it, nothing there about touch and control, which is what real players understand by 'caressing' the ball.

16.) 07 Apr 2017 22:53:33
Wait and see what caressing the ball will mean to Pedro when he listens to 50,000 bears baying for his blood. I just have a really bad feeling guys. I hope to god I'm wrong please believe me. I always try and remain positive but I just can't shake the feeling. And btw wee ecky I didn't make up the post. It's what I've heard from someone close to MOH. Maybe someone will bail me out?

17.) 08 Apr 2017 13:32:39
MOH has been a major disappointment since joining us, McKay plays one good game in five, Halliday, Waghorn and Kieran haven't had a decent game in the Top league. Personally this would be the first bunch I would target to offload and hopefully secure some transfer fees on.
Problem is that you then need five replacements plus replacements for the three at the end of their contracts and that means that Pedro needs to sign eight quality players jut to stand still albeit with a better quality of player.
To secure the quality required we need to find some real gems at relatively low cost or we just continue on the downward spiral that we have been on for years.



25 Jan 2017 18:29:46
Just heard Ryan Christie thinks he is going to the second biggest club in Scotland in a loan deal with the sheep. I think it's a right slap in the face to his parent club, rating them only third biggest.


1.) 25 Jan 2017 21:58:13
his popularity ratings will be through the roof with both sides lol.

2.) 25 Jan 2017 23:08:57
Could be worse seeker, could be going to the 3rd biggest team in Glasgow, yourselves.

3.) 25 Jan 2017 23:57:17
Some people have very short memories and selective memories at that!

4.) 26 Jan 2017 00:10:52
Ha ha Bhampot! I knew you couldn't resist! Obviously as a fan of the world's most successful club, I will disagree with you.

Yes I know it was a friendly but Wow, just wow! How is the manager going to pick a team from this squad? I've heard some on here refer to Candeiaas as not good enough. Thought he was superb and the second goal was a world class finish against a 19 million pound defender. Best squad in a long time and am now buzzing for the league to start. They must be worried over at breezeblock boulevard, they really must be.


1.) 15 Jul 2019 17:56:30
You hit the nail right on the head seeker! Nothing to add to your post pal.

2.) 15 Jul 2019 18:37:33
Yup SG has em buzzing, never rated Jones but what a performance and he and Barasic seem to be gelling well together. If he keeps this up I'll gladly eat double helpings of Humble Pie.

3.) 15 Jul 2019 19:35:13
Candieas was class.

4.) 15 Jul 2019 22:40:54
Agree Coops been down to Newcastle for games there fans are only second to ours. They deserve better than the fat man.

5.) 15 Jul 2019 22:42:56
Marseille are having a woeful preseason. Don't know if your aware, Accrington Stanley bet them 2-1. A team like Marseille even out of form should of bet them.

6.) 15 Jul 2019 23:18:11
I take it like me, that newcastle utd is your favourite english team Jaws?

7.) 15 Jul 2019 23:33:52
Your not having a great pre season yourselves drawing with Rennes who finished 10th and 5 places below Marseille last season. Marseille have added to that team last year they had over €150m worth of players on show and we ran over them. The fact they had 90mins in their legs after playing Accrington just makes 4-0 more impressive.

8.) 15 Jul 2019 23:51:52
Wasn't a first team we fielded and if not losing any games pre season is a bad thing, what's a good one?

9.) 17 Jul 2019 00:41:50
We didn't field a first team either philtim88. God knows what our first team is going to look like! Well done though for finding a negative in our absolute humping of a top French side. How did the Rennes match go again, bearing in mind they finished well below Marseilles and have spent threepence on transfers pre season? Answers on a postcard.



14 Jul 2019 08:23:47
I see Frank Lampard singing the praises of Billy Gilmour during Chelsea's pre-season. I wonder if the transfer ban will fast track him into the senior squad for the start of the season? The ban might just work in his favour. If he is good enough, and I think he is, he could cement a place in the team before the ban is lifted. If he doesn't quite pull up trees but is decent in the EPL, maybe a wee loan spell with the Famous from January? How good would that be? Imagine the look on the coupon of the next mhanky manager, just in the door and trying to sort out the carnage left by the LB.




02 Jul 2019 21:58:29
Just watched the women's semi final and can't figure out why the penalty wasn't retaken? How was what the American goalie did by stepping forward a foot before the ball was struck any different from what the Scotland goalie did? Where is the fairnesd?


1.) 03 Jul 2019 00:16:39
Think they have to keep one foot on the line .

2.) 03 Jul 2019 07:56:58
I thougjt the Scotland goalie did that as well? Maybe not. Didn't look to be any real diffetence in the two.

3.) 03 Jul 2019 10:36:10
They have to keep both feet on line up until the ball is struck. If not straight yellow and retake.

4.) 03 Jul 2019 13:07:09
Thanks Gdog10. Then the yank goalie should have been carded and a retake given as well. I can't say I'm really that bothered tbh but just felt sorry for the Scotland goalie making a great double save only to get booked and to face another pen. I didn't see any difference between the two pens. How is this fair?

5.) 03 Jul 2019 14:49:01
They changed rule on pens after Scotland game now its 1 foot on line when ball struck before Scotland game it was 2 feet on line, booking does not apply in penshootouts for obv reasons lol.

6.) 03 Jul 2019 18:56:05
Only needs one foot on line per the new rules mate.



20 Jun 2019 16:10:44
Last minute bid by Celtic to snatch Aribo after the Turnbull fiasco. He does a Novo and says no thanks before signing for us. If Carlsberg did Thursdays.


1.) 20 Jun 2019 17:59:23
I hope this is true Seeker as it’s fairly dragging on.

2.) 20 Jun 2019 18:32:59
The boy from oldham apparently on his way too.

3.) 20 Jun 2019 18:34:59
With, what sadly passes for, the Scottish media's appalling record for making up stories do any of you believe Celtic tried to Hijack this move? While I'm here anyone know what an online site is talking about a paper, as I read it, dissing either our war dead or disaster casualties?

4.) 20 Jun 2019 19:11:06
Apparently somebody confirmed they had been in touch with Charlton. Whi knows? I saw reference to John Greig and the Ibrox disaster on the newsnow site. Somethinv to do with an article the S** had cobbled together.
Don't know what has been written though.

5.) 21 Jun 2019 01:40:13

7.) 22 Jun 2019 03:12:25
cellic may have. looks like they went back to turnbull after the aribo kb.



20 Jun 2019 02:22:13
Tell you what, I know I slagged the women before but I can't believe what happened at the end. That must be the 2 worst decisions I've ever seen. Are the goalkeepers supposed to stand behind the line? And what happened to injury time? Really feel sorry for the girls. They did not get one decision during the 3 games.


1.) 20 Jun 2019 07:40:47
You could argue that they've been done by VAR in all three games, although technically both decisions last night were correct. Extra time, however, was not.

That said, what's cost them the game last night was poor poor defending from a strong and comfortable position.

There are some technically gifted players there, but the game looked and felt very scrappy/ bitty with a lot of loose balls. Scotland had an opportunity at 3 up to simply keep position and play it around.

Overall, and I haven't watched a lot of the tournie, the women's game has clearly made strides, but there's still some way to go IMHO.

2.) 20 Jun 2019 07:47:42
Same here mate I couldn't understand what they were saying I was watching it on BBC Alba my other bbc4 hd wasn't working but they girls didn't have any luck which is ashame for them they decisions at the end were a joke.

3.) 20 Jun 2019 11:49:45
Why would they have to stand behind the line? It is because the keeper jumped off the line to save the penalty. You are bot aloud that. So a retaken. This is the rules.

4.) 20 Jun 2019 14:15:04
Currently every penalty kick would need to be retaken then as every one i've ever seen has the goalie off his line when the ball is struck. Imagine if there was a shoot out. It would go on all night. The Scotland goalie did well to go only a foot off her line and then make a brilliant double save, only to get booked and to face another penalty. Has anybody on these sites ever seen a goalkeeper stay on his line when a penalty is struck? I know I haven't. Goalies are taught to step forward just before the kick is taken. I think this is fair as it gives the goalie a chance. To be penalised for being a foot from the line is ludicrous imo. Rant over.

5.) 20 Jun 2019 18:17:52
Shocking decision. the players are lining up to shoot down var already. Was never for it and said on here many times it will make a mockery of football. How many decisions has it got wrong already in big games it's embarrassing.

6.) 20 Jun 2019 19:15:50
Tbh I was for it but it seems to have become a lottery and it takes far too long to arrive at a decision.

7.) 20 Jun 2019 19:46:29
Watch the England u21sgame when keeper saves dembele penalty, he's much further off his line than the Scotland goalie, no retake.

8.) 21 Jun 2019 09:11:32
Frustrated Blue. That's exactly what I have been saying. Every penalty needs to be retaken if they stick rigidly to the rules.

Baines is very good. Keeps himself fit, doesn't get many cards and is a good lad to have in the dressing room. What's not to like? I know he"s 34 but the experience he would bring could be invaluable.
