Thought I'd do a comparison of Souness and Gerrard's first season up to end October.

Won Drawn Lost GF GA
Souness 21 7 6 60 22

Gerrard 12 8 3 43 15

Souness had won 62% of his games with an average of 1.8 goals a game for and 0.7 goals against.

Gerrard has won 57% of his games with an average of 2.1 goals a game for and 1.4 goals against.

Souness had played 6 games in Europe and was out.

Gerrard has played 11 and is in.

Souness had played 5 domestic cup games (winning one trophy) .

Gerrard has played 3.

Souness had bags of money to spend.

Gerrard, by comparison, has not.

Great point mate, but us lot are an impatient set of fans who are desperate for success but it takes time but I believe SG will get it right, wish we all wouldn’t just get behind him and stop the criticism, he will make mistakes but all managers do, Souness himself said last week he left Rangers too soon!

Speaking to a Leicester City supporting friend yesterday - lives in Scotland but from Leicester and travels down maybe half a dozen times a season.

I asked him if Benkovic is a tasty player. He looked at me, puzzled.

Not only had he never seen him play (obviously, as he's not kicked a ball for them) but he had never heard of him.


1.) 02 Sep 2018 07:22:50
They only bought him this summer i think?

2.) 02 Sep 2018 07:28:55
Neither have I
Who is this benkovic?

3.) 02 Sep 2018 08:35:20
Has this anything to do with Rangers as I've never heard of Benkovic?

{Ed001's Note - he is very highly rated, Celtic tried to sign him but he chose to go to Leicester, but I think they just signed him on loan anyway. That's if I am remembering correctly, there were a lot of moves to keep track of on deadline day!}

More point who cares who he is, it's all about the famous.

5.) 02 Sep 2018 10:43:28
Probably says more about your mate as a Leicester fan than it does benkovic that he doesn't know of a player his team supposedly paid £13m for regardless if he's rubbish or not.

Anyone else had this issue?

On Thursday I gave up my season ticket for resell because I couldn't attend the St Mirren game due to holiday.

On Friday the game is changed to 12th so I contact the ticket centre to say I can attend.

On Saturday they say my ticket has been resold and I can buy one on general sale from Monday.

It wasn't me who changed the game date so surely the person who got my ticket can get one of the general sale ones and I get my seat back?

Blame Stevie G for getting qualification to next round 😭🇬🇧.

2.) 05 Aug 2018 05:27:47
Yately. Ordinarily I might find that vaguely amusing.

3.) 05 Aug 2018 08:30:49
I never resell for that very reason. Games move too often.

4.) 05 Aug 2018 12:24:00
No chance unfortunately. Once it's sold you have lost it.

Not pretty but 3 points which is more than we managed v Ross County last year.



1.) 27 Aug 2017 20:46:12
Its a good weekend if u think bak to the last game before break last season (1-1 with killie) hopefully win the nxt 2 so going into game against them we're only 3pts behind at least

When Joey Barton signed I was very disappointed because I think Rangers players; past, present and future need to have personal and professional standards that are high and I felt - and still feel - that his historical behaviour did not belong at Ibrox.

Having watched his press conference in full, again, I have to say that - whilst I still have reservations - if he performs on the pitch as he does at in front of the media he could be a great player for us. I just hope he keeps his head and plays his game on the pitch. He doesn't need to prove how much he loves Rangers by getting sent off against Celtic.


1.) 20 Jun 2016 23:41:12
Good post OP. I really hope he's not just here to be in the media spotlight at a huge club and promote himself as a loudmouthed media figure.

2.) 20 Jun 2016 22:43:51
What about when gazza signed, did you feel the same or did u put that to the back of your mind because of his abilities. you don't always get the perfect footballer on and off the pitch mate. there's always things that people don't like about people, nobody is perfect.

I'm really glad we signed Barton. whatever his past, he's grown up and moved on. the fact he got in the championship team of the year says it all. that's one of the hardest leagues to play in. I'm not saying the best, but hardest. he's quality and will bring a lot to our team on the field and off it especially with the media. he won't back down from no. 1 especially the other side getting sent off doesn't prove nothing to me in an old firm game.

I'd rather we won the game as winning is the single most important thing we win trophies we win cups. I believe he's here for the right reasons, I just hope he proves it when he pulls the jersey on his back winning against Dundee is just as important. we want to win every game. he's got more passion in his big toe than broonys got in his whole body. can't wait till the beginning of a great season.

Bruised Bear. Good post. This has always been my take on the Barton transfer. Good player - yes, no doubt about it (though nowhere near Gazza imo) , but I think the media circus up here along with the haters will constantly try to mess with his head, hoping for a reaction. If he does react, especially in an OF match, the baw would be well and truly burst. He really needs to shut his trap and do his talking on the pitch. Only then will he gain the respect of our support and it will show the rest that their tactics will not work. Would love to see him make his mark for the right reasons, though I have serious doubts as to whether or not he is capable of a little restraint from time to time.

4.) 21 Jun 2016 12:01:19
Barton is the catalyst for all these other players joining, he has put us back on the Footballing map. As for his quality, he will be the best player in the league by a country mile, of that I have no doubt. The English Championship is full of expensive signings and yet he was the man there last year. We also have the squad to fill in for him should he find himself suspended/ injured at any point although I honestly think that side of him has mellowed.

5.) 21 Jun 2016 13:53:35
Humey, when Gazza signed for Rangers it was 1995 and I was under 30. At that point I cared less about honour and integrity and the true meaning to me of Rangers. I'm older now, these aspects are more important to me and I want Rangers to be exemplary off and on the pitch.

I accept no-one is perfect but there are degrees of imperfection. Additionally, Gazza was world class, Barton isn't; Gazza was a bit of an idiot, Barton is/ was a thug. An intelligent and articulate one though.

In 1995, it wasn't common knowledge that Gazza hit his wife so I couldn't be morally outraged by what I didn't know.

On a similar topic, I don't understand those who wholeheartedly accept Barton's signing but slate those who reckon Jason Cummings should sign, just because he's done some silly stuff. Whatever Jason Cummings has done - it doesn't come close to Barton's misdemeanours.

I’m assuming his full name on Wikipedia has been tampered with for maximum comic effect?

No wonder they’re playing with fear - the pish they take because they don’t win every game by 5.

Thanks for asking but nope - I still like to enjoy myself at Ibrox and reek o’ pish as a consequence all the way home every time.

2 points dropped in last minute v Aberdeen
2 points dropped in last minute v Motherwell
1 point dropped and 2 gained by Celtic with their winner at Parkhead

We’d be sitting on 83 and them on 82 going into last game of season.

We need to tighten up at back for 95 mins.

Davis hasn’t been great but I thought he played well in 2nd half v Killie?
