New to this site but have to say I'm absolutely hooked. Very much appreciate all the rumours and opinions!

For a bit of "fun" on the last day of the transfer window, thought I'd ask the group. if you could sign any ex-ger (in their prime obviously and based on the current need of the team) before the window slams shut - who would it be? So many quality names, but I think we lack of tough tackling midfielder who can break up play, so I'm going for Tugay! The guy was sheer class and could do it all.

Welcome mate. Good question, for me it would be The Great Dane or Gazza.

2.) 31 Aug 2021 08:13:20
Terry Butcher or Richard Gough.

3.) 31 Aug 2021 08:20:28
Ally McCoist, goals alone from the chances we make would win us most games in SPFL. He also liked the odd Euro goal. Great character as well.

4.) 31 Aug 2021 08:37:20
Davie cooper and Jim Baxter no one could come close to them or us in fact if they were in the team.

5.) 31 Aug 2021 08:39:31
Baxter by a mile.

6.) 31 Aug 2021 08:40:34
Would have to be Gazza one he’s the 🐐 and 2 he’s exactly what we’re lacking a bit if magic 🙌🏻.

7.) 31 Aug 2021 08:41:21
Welcome aboard to the madhouse, TrueBlue85.
I'd go Super Ally.

8.) 31 Aug 2021 08:56:25
Ally for me. A 30 plus goals a season striker would be gold dust right now.

9.) 31 Aug 2021 09:03:36
Barry Ferguson or Gazza.

10.) 31 Aug 2021 09:13:09
Super Ally for me. don't think we'll ever see a goalscorer like him again.

11.) 31 Aug 2021 09:16:41
Not the best player we have had but
what this team needs at the minute is a target man striker to change the tactics up a bit and Mark Hateley would be that man.

12.) 31 Aug 2021 09:17:16
Laudrup for me.

13.) 31 Aug 2021 09:25:25
Brian laudrup.

14.) 31 Aug 2021 09:29:50
Ally wouldn't suit our style. A gazza or fergie is what we're needing.

15.) 31 Aug 2021 09:30:47
So many to choose from but it has to be either Gazza or Baxter although having a top quality leader would also tempt me to go for Butcher or Gough!

16.) 31 Aug 2021 09:36:03
Laudrup is the lord….

17.) 31 Aug 2021 09:37:08
obv would be my all time idol Gazza, however i feel our team need an out n out goalscorer like marco negri before his eye injury. I know he was not prolific for us over a long period but i can't remember anyone banging them in as often as marco negri before he got his eye injury. If i remember correctly his goal scoring ratio was insane. We need a striker like tht in our side and he was definitely in his prime before the injury. Man I'm going to go and have a look on u tube see if i can find a highlights reel. Can just remember him scoring for fun. Hope my memory serves me correct n he never just got the odd one or 2 every other game lol.

18.) 31 Aug 2021 10:02:08
I'm sure negri had 27 goals by Christmas broxi then it went Pete tong!

19.) 31 Aug 2021 10:24:23
Baxter for me.

20.) 31 Aug 2021 10:27:49
Yes he was out injured for quite a while, he got an eye injury playing squash with Amoruso i think it was. He Was Never the same after tht injury. He was out for a bit n i always used to think how many goals would Negri have gotten if tht injury didn't happen. Was insane start up till then, most players are great if they Finnish the season on 27 goals, never mind having 27 by christmas.

21.) 31 Aug 2021 10:36:07
Negri scored enough before christmas to still end up top goal scorer of the league. he was a nightmare to play against. scored for fun. did he not score 5 in a game i think against dundee.

22.) 31 Aug 2021 10:39:49
Michael Mols what a player that was prior to his injury and boy could we use someone like that now.

23.) 31 Aug 2021 11:32:47
Sure i remrmber a game he got 5 geesadodotht 👌.

24.) 31 Aug 2021 11:56:22
Geese yes Dundee utd.

25.) 31 Aug 2021 12:36:36
Jim Baxter.

26.) 31 Aug 2021 13:45:09
Before his eye injury at the hands of a game of squash and a certain Mr Porrini Marco Negri had scored 32 goals by the start of January. What could have been.

Absolutely delighted with that bit of news! Keep a great player and help ensure we eventually get a premium price for one or your best assets.

Thanks for the info John25. Is the plan then for Zander Clark to be #1? Disappointed that Kennedy will be going as had high hopes he might be one for the 1st team but as per your other thread seems he has shot himself in the foot with his attitude.

Excited to see King might be give an opportunity next season.

Paul86 - hadn't seen your post when I submitted. Heard the exact same thing about Boyd. Apparently was also a fan of ladies of the night!

Really disappointed to hear Kennedy hasn't sorted his attitude issues out. Think he would be a great option off the bench.

One of my friends knows an ex-ger and was told that a former striker with a fondness for monster munch was a bit of a gear head. No idea how reliable that is but nothing would surprise me.

Doekhi is the one that excites me the most. Think he could be a seriously profitable player especially with the big money premiership teams are willing to pay for a reliable CB. @john25 do you have any inside track on whether we are confident of getting him in? I would imagine there's a fair bit of interest.

Great to see Sir Walter was at the golf - he looked frail and has obviously been through it. but still delighted to see him up and about.

He came off the bench and scored a goal.

I have no idea either way but when a player has been out for several months with a vague return date (that hasn't been met) and has had this issue on and off for a few seasons, I can see why people are saying he might be done.

I love Jack but would like to see a quality replacement signed in the event he can't get back to full fitness and continues to miss games - it's a painfully obvious gap in the squad.

Agree with Stormtrooper - for me the captain should be someone who is one of the first names on the team sheet and and i think it's becoming clearer that with the emergence of Paterson that Tavs days are numbered (Garrard has even said as much) .

Jack is captain material - gets what it's all about, provides something nobody else in the squad can and rarely has a performance below 7/ 10 (unfortunately he's not fit) .

I think we have been spoilt for choice with leaders and rangers men over the years - would be nice to see players being a bit more vocal. When th chips are down it doesn't look as though anyone on the pitch is really trying to motivate or inspire (would kill for an Ian Ferguson in that team right now! ) .

@Jyf - moved to the UK when she was 2 I think. I would very much class her as British (I know others on here may disagree) - grew up here, educated here and trained here. Amazing performance and a breath or fresh air for women's tennis which has been stale thanks to the Williams brothers domination.

I think Hanley works well in a back 5 but wouldn't fancy him in a team that plays a high line and presses (especially with Tav going AWOL) . He's definitely improved from his early days but I think we can do much better.
