Good info TJBB56, now where's my diary? Lol!

No internet or Google then probably means no Gers banter page either lol ?.

I used to post by fax and smoke signals and the odd Wells fargo letter??.

{Ed001's Note - to be fair, when we started the original football-rumours site back in 2001, I didn't have the internet or a computer for that matter. Smartphones weren't a thing either. I used to note write articles the old fashioned way, with pen on paper, and give them to Ed33 to type up and post on the site.}

How times have changed ED, the rate of acceleration in a short time is staggering, Tim Berners-Lee has a lot to answer for, won't be long before A I takes your job mate??.

ed, i ran a business on hand written notes on paper stuck all over the office, and sometimes in the toilet walls, my daughter used to go crazy, the good old days.

{Ed001's Note - I still prefer pen and paper. Writing it down makes it stick in my head much better than typing does.}

03 Jun 2024 20:26:32
Katic doing well against some good forwards.


1.) 03 Jun 2024 21:02:55
He’s actually looking a player ??‍♂️??‍♂️.

2.) 03 Jun 2024 21:58:52
Said this for 2 years now but been slaughtered in here.
He was the best player in park against arsenal in Europe a few years ago as well.

3.) 03 Jun 2024 22:47:44
When did he switch countries?

4.) 03 Jun 2024 22:52:10
I liked him. He said he'd be back.

5.) 03 Jun 2024 23:51:45
Penrith I think this is his debut. Could be wrong.

Katic is exactly what we miss at set pieces at both ends.
One the reasons I fancied porteous aswell.

That ships sailed but we need a fast technically good passing type and a solid aerial threat.
We need both types as a new pairing.

Think Rio and vidic.

6.) 04 Jun 2024 06:39:17
I always liked the big guy.

7.) 04 Jun 2024 07:04:23
I quite liked Katic, quite young though and inexperienced when he was with us. Where is he playing his trade these days?

8.) 04 Jun 2024 07:55:49
Hindsight is a wonderful thing fellow bears and we probably got rid of nico katic too quick ? There's one thing about the big fella he was superb in the air and no opposition player could bully him ? He was a rough diamond we should have kept and polished up ?He probably would have been clement's cup of tea, as he likes a big physical, imposing centre half ? Unfortunately that ship has now also sailed and i wish the big fella all the best and he still loves the rangers and didn't want to leave us ???.

9.) 04 Jun 2024 13:11:13
Katic way way better than Souttar! Way better!

10.) 04 Jun 2024 15:18:33
No he's not, Katic can't trap a bag of cement. His passing is terrible. Only thing he can do is head the ball.

Soutter is by far the better the player.

11.) 04 Jun 2024 15:28:32
No he isn’t Gdog that’s just not true.

12.) 04 Jun 2024 18:18:21
Correct arcade but but he scored against Celtic ?.

13.) 04 Jun 2024 18:46:49
Katic good in the air and not much else tbh.

14.) 05 Jun 2024 11:29:30
Souttar scored against them as well.



02 Jun 2024 10:14:28
RE: Real Madrid. I was talking about the 11 players on show last night not actually Real Madrid, want I meant was in terms of great players i'm not sure any of them get in a Real best 11 of last 30 years.


1.) 02 Jun 2024 11:11:03
I think vini jr kroos carvajal are certs another couple debatable. It was really imo only this year they weren't playing silky football, some of there performances over the years have been ridiculously good. Modric although a sub would come into that category aswell I think.

2.) 02 Jun 2024 12:24:52
Modric kroos do hands down.
Vini jnr be close and the right back also won’t even try spelling his name.

3.) 02 Jun 2024 12:25:11
Bear in mind last nights 11 would be up against some of the below. The more I look the more I realize the individual talent back then was off the scale. How much would the below cost in today money.
Real Ronaldo
Van Nistilroy
Roberto Carlos

4.) 02 Jun 2024 12:30:49
Don’t think Vini Jr would on the basis that Ronaldo played in his position.

5.) 02 Jun 2024 13:22:15
TJ follow you now mate, my reply last night wasn't meant to come across as snide I was just a few madris deep celebrating another champions league victory for Los Blancos. In fairness though mate, since the "Galactico" era began, they only won 2 champs leagues (00 and 02) so despite having some unbelievable talent they couldn't get the job done finishing as low as 5th in the league one season I believe.

So I agree to an extent in terms of individuality, but as a collective, since Don Carlo came in, then left the reigns to his understudy Zidane and now back again, you can't argue their record and the fact that even now without players like Ronaldo and Ramos, they can still get the job done, they just never know when they're beaten and if needed can flick a switch at any time and punish teams.

6.) 02 Jun 2024 13:27:47
Agree tjbb. A number on your list would have been written off by people on here.

7.) 02 Jun 2024 14:25:42
True David, some unbelievable players tjbb but were they as successful as the last 12 years teams? that's what it comes down to.

8.) 02 Jun 2024 14:29:11
Don’t forget makalele who was a better player than Toni kroos
Modric I imagine would though.

9.) 02 Jun 2024 14:41:46
Ger88 no offence taken at all, its an interesting debate as football has changed in many ways, not all good. I remember really looking forward to Euros and world cups as you would normally see a new trick or an emerging wonder player, these days all a bit sterile imo. I don't have any answers just my own thoughts and memories of some wonderful footballers.

10.) 02 Jun 2024 15:31:32
It is a good debate tjbb, probably every person would come up with different 11, from real teams last 30 years, that's why it's good debate mate.

11.) 02 Jun 2024 15:56:11
Makalele 1 cl kroos 6 cl no comparison for me David.

12.) 02 Jun 2024 15:59:27
Bellingham, Modric and Kroos would be a fair shout. Apart from Zidane, who else in midfield was better than those? Maybe Seedorf and Kaka? There would definately be an argument for those three. Tough choice though I'll give you that.

13.) 02 Jun 2024 16:26:23
Not about trophies it’s about who’s the better player.

Makalele is a better player than kroos without a shadow of doubt.
Play makalele and the rest of mf can do there thing.

Trophies don’t make u better than someone.

14.) 02 Jun 2024 18:44:01
Kroos hands down better than makaele for me not even close.



31 May 2024 22:44:46
I find it incredulous to think some think we lost it because of Lunny, Goldson and Tav. You put all 3 of them in the Cetic team and Celtic still win the league. Why don't some see we will always lose goals but scoring is where we have been poor. Finishing a season with Dessers Sterling, Mcausland and Silva up front we were doomed.


1.) 31 May 2024 23:42:17
Exactly TJBB5656, Spot on, nail on the head, putting the ball in the net and not having quality options up top is the defining factor and has been plain to see. 100%.

2.) 31 May 2024 23:47:47
Remind me, TJBB, who out of Dessers, McCausland, Sterling or Silva was it who made a complete arse of it and sold the first goal against the tims at Ibrox? Or which one got sent off for a stupid foul during a must win game against them? Do you see where I'm going with this?
Oh, and by the way, all 3 of them would get nowhere near their team!

3.) 31 May 2024 23:57:58
Over the course of the season they scored 8 more goals than us. We have had to do without Sima and Danilo for long spells while Celtic haven't really been without a first choice striker all season. Lundstram up till his horror old firm game was doing ok but goldson and Tavernier have been awful and not just this season. in the 3 each at Ibrox Tavernier absolutely kills us after 20 seconds. He gets targeted every game now and that's even when barasic is playing. Goldson has lost any pace he had and points the finger at everyone but himself. Would love stats on how many free headers he's put over the bar from corners. I'd like to see a clear out especially our captain and vice captain.

4.) 31 May 2024 23:59:31
They wouldn’t get in the Celtic team.

5.) 01 Jun 2024 00:17:54
Spot on TJBB56. Goals were the issue. And no matter what you think of those 3, between them they played nearly 150 games which was too many. But they had to as around them so many were injured or didn’t fancy it.

6.) 01 Jun 2024 00:51:17
Butlands probably the only Gers player who would get into the Celtic team.

7.) 01 Jun 2024 01:04:02
Both points can be true TJBB. We definitely need more goals in the team but you cannot deny that there is a culture of failure with the three mentioned. I’ve said before I’m a big Tav fan but his race has been run. You can see it in his face and when he speaks in interviews. He’s tired and needs to be moved on. Lunny and Goldson are the same, too slow. We need more physical, faster, dynamic players. Just look at the cup final with Dio and Raskin in the middle. It was night and day what some legs and mobility do in the middle of the park.

8.) 01 Jun 2024 06:11:12
Aye right it's not the defences fault we concede goals, by that logic it's not the fwd's and midfield either that we don't score. Seriously ?.

9.) 01 Jun 2024 06:29:23
Agree Blue?.

10.) 01 Jun 2024 07:29:52
Ah, the weekly blame Dessers post for only scoring 20+ goals this season.

Those 3 would be lucky to get into the Hibs team, they wouldn’t get on the bench of an injured Celtic team.

11.) 01 Jun 2024 07:42:46
They're more a sign of failure our club have had as they've been mainstays during the last 3 years along with bb Ryan Jack and roofe but they've had there time and are simply not good enough now.

12.) 01 Jun 2024 07:45:35
Blue - Bang on we can only match them when we have pace and aggression in midfield - we did well last game for spells but still gave McGregor too much room and time on the ball - and as other posters have said those 3 would get nowhere near Celtic team as they all lack pace/ ball pressing and desire which is a requisite of their team and they have that in spades all over the park. Totally agree also regarding lack of goals up front as they had numerous goal scoring candidates and we were floored by Danilo and Sima out leaving only Dessers as our main threat! - and am ready for the onslaught but we should have gone for Shankland in Jan when in an upward trajectory and I truly believe the league would have been ours now- IMHO.

13.) 01 Jun 2024 07:53:37
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.

14.) 01 Jun 2024 08:22:37
The 3 of those would be lucky to get on their bench . Tav had a good few games when clement came on at 1st but was rotten from jan forward how anyone can defend him is beyond belief.

15.) 01 Jun 2024 10:08:32
Not defending any of them, not attacking any of them not saying any of them would get in the Celtic team. What i'm saying is imo we lost the league against Celtic because their front 4 are better than ours and not because their defense is better than ours, for spells their defense was pretty ropey and even at full strength you can still get a goal but hey look they still one the league and that's my point goals win games, they had the cutting edge, remind me who won the Scottish cup in the last min with one goal, a defender no, the guy who come off the bench and done his job.

16.) 01 jun 2024 10:39:56
Easy having occasional good games v St Johnston or Dundee, actually no not Dundee, they couldn't manage that one, nor Ross county, and its all of them with exception of the keeper and young McCausland.

Dio should be given time and Cortes looked great, Goldson closes his eyes and tucks his head into his shoulder when he goes for a header, this is because he is a devout coward, so is Tavernier, both are scared of being hit either with the ball or someone else.

Watching Goldson go for a header is actually embarrassing, never in all my time playing have i witnessed such a scared centre half, i noticed this years ago, but playing at Ibrox v donkeys you tend to get away with winging it, thus second place became acceptable, get rid now please.

17.) 01 Jun 2024 11:04:20
You don’t win many games when you are needing to score 2 or 3 goals to win a game. Something that Sir Walter fully understood. We will always score goals, but the goals we concede is criminal.

18.) 01 jun 2024 11:12:41
absolutely dado, you can have the greatest striker in the world on your team

but when your throwing goals in every single week you've no chance.

19.) 01 Jun 2024 11:13:17
Tav has ran his race but folk saying he’s been terrible etc are full of it his numbers were amazing this year but he seemed wore out time the split came having a 33 year old playing 60 games is obviously a problem. The Japanese boy being faster isn’t tav throwing the game.

20.) 01 Jun 2024 11:41:20
Got agree about Goldston how many times does ball come of his shoulder etc when he goes for headers either defending or attacking,

21.) 01 jun 2024 13:46:51
ger, he's scared of the ball hitting his head, he screws his face up, closes his eyes tight, and attempts to cover his head with his shoulder blades, quite pathetic to see, I've noticed it for years, i stopped backing him to score 4 years ago when i realised he couldn't see the ball, that's why so many of the headers he dies reach almost always fly high over the bar, the mans a coward.

22.) 01 Jun 2024 14:06:04
Tavernier has been a brilliant signing, his time is now up .
If we get the anywhere near the service that man has given us from any of the summer signings I will be delighted.
His goal scoring exploits on the way to Seville were out of this world.
Whatever he chooses to do going forward I hope he enjoys himself.

23.) 01 Jun 2024 19:24:41
I honestly think McCausland is vastly underrated. The boy is always positive, always looking forward with his passes. We need to give him time to develop and give him more confidence, not shoot him down every two minutes.

Some seem to think just because a guy hasn’t got all the goals, he’s not good enough.



25 May 2024 20:28:34
Although I do think the refs they have been infiltrated while we were down, we lost today because we can't score when it really matters. We held out, with a make shift defense, for that amount of time against a full strength tic but can't score a goal from open play, that's the problem and always has been this season, nothing has changed, you could see it in pre season. Although our defense has not been fantastic at time you still need to score to win games, our front 3 or 4 are the least potent since we came back to the the SPL. Windass, Waghorn, Morelos, Candias, Kent would all improve our attack atm which is criminal.


1.) 25 May 2024 20:40:58
100% correct. We needs a 20 plus goal striker that can score in the big moments and then wingers that can score 15plus each a season and midfielders that can chip in too.

I really really hope we go for both Miovski and Shankland.

2.) 25 May 2024 20:48:50
The link up play from midfield to attach just isn’t there atm. And the decision making in the final third is very poor. That said I liked the fight the team showed today.

The game today was won from the bench, we just didn’t have enough quality there to impact the game. Thought the game was crying out for a Scott Arfield type player.

3.) 25 May 2024 20:59:41
Our wide players are absolutely woeful. Wright silva mcCausland all poor players. This is an area we proper need strength and depth next season. Honestly now so glad to get season finished and have no more football to watch for couple month. Mentally exhausting.

4.) 25 May 2024 21:34:44
We did score.

5.) 25 May 2024 22:24:21
20 plus goals but the fans need to pick the games the striker scores in ? Jesus Christ blue that’s ridiculous.

6.) 25 May 2024 22:37:17
"we couldn't score from open play" corner is not open play or at least that is what I meant.

7.) 25 May 2024 22:49:48
Just to point out. Dessers has scored more than twenty goals this season. Scored against celtic, scored a double to get into this final so what you talking about.

8.) 26 May 2024 00:16:38
I’d still say Davies and balogun are our two best defenders funny think it’s first time they’ve been tried as a partnership and looked pretty good compared to other partnerships yilmaz was poor today but effort was there at least again the bench was a problem you looked at it before start and thought right back to last season no quality options on bench as soon as matondo and Wright came on I thought it was over.

9.) 26 May 2024 07:04:30
Spot on gofor 2 CH's were great?.

I think Storm was just clumsy with his words, i'm sure he does not want hardworking folks to lose their jobs but probably meant it was an industry on the decline. However let's not mix up serious journalism with the pish we associate with the rags, Journalism is key to western democracy.

He is as physically robust averaged 43 games per season over 13 years, I would say that's an improvement on RJ, Availability is a top priority. Lunnys goal return 1 per 17 games, KM 1 per 9 games. 39 international caps and 2 goals. He is 2 years older though so I would say 2 good seasons in his legs. If the fee was reasonable I don't see any reason why not.

I think it does make a difference if your a Rangers fan through and through. It must rub off in the dressing room and in training, we've had too many palyers recelnty that don't get our club and take the easy route by not making themnsleves available for games or hiding in a game. Humans are capabe of an extra couple of percent given the right motivation. imo.
