That to me (bar worrell for goldson) was our true first team. Defoe and Davis will need to prove they are good enough to claim a spot.


1.) 28 Jan 2019 11:11:47
We lost our edge when kent went off. We need width👍.

2.) 28 Jan 2019 17:40:12
Finty tint Davis and Defoe don't need to prove anything what did arfield do that Davis couldn't do better.

3.) 28 Jan 2019 22:21:52
Momentum, if you have it why disrupt it.

4.) 28 Jan 2019 23:01:15
arfield had a hand in all 3 goals mate

i like davis and think he’ll be good for us, but for now scotty has the jersey.

5.) 28 Jan 2019 23:40:49
davis > arfield. Just me that finds arfield sluggish? Often caught on heels etc and just not a natural 10? Movemenr is laboured at the best of times for me. Davis is the best mf in the league if fit imo.

6.) 29 Jan 2019 01:34:10
We missed Arfield through suspension and injury in November time was it? And I remember we struggled without him. He’s not flashy but he is a link between Morelos and the holding mids. He’s also a hard worker and suits a high press.

He was unreal in the Old Firm game. Won his battles vs Brown.

What’s Davis shown so far to take the jersey off him? Don’t get me wrong I’m delighted to have both players. Strength in depth is key.

7.) 29 Jan 2019 12:48:03
Bear is right on this subject, as an Ulster guy I love wee Davis, but I wouldn’t drop Arfield if the guy is doing his job, Stevie Davis will have to earn his place on the field, and I’ve no doubt he will, he’s a class act.



28 Sep 2018 22:41:03
With regards to the striker situation for semi final. I could personally see him forming a rotating front 3 in a 433. Middleton/ kent/ grezda being my choices as its obvious by gerrards comments that sadiq is not getting on the park anytime soon.


1.) 28 Sep 2018 23:33:10
I like the way you are thinking fintytint 3 rapid and skillful players, I think they would cause havoc.

2.) 29 Sep 2018 11:07:17
Candias has to play.

3.) 29 Sep 2018 17:51:08
Fintyfint, exactly what I said two days ago.

4.) 01 Oct 2018 12:56:00
Candias has shown nothing this season to suggest that. Been poor more often than good.



08 Aug 2018 12:43:53
I think at 6pm tomorrow gerrard will know if he can get anyone else from liverpool ie solanke.


1.) 08 Aug 2018 20:50:27
Fintyint i'd prefer the two Bosnian lads signed instead of loan deals.



02 May 2018 10:18:41
Hate doing this but I was told by someone that seems to be in the know. That yes Gerrard is coming and that King is stepping back to just be on the board and be a shareholder. Investment is coming from USA. No idea who, no idea how much. didn't have much time to speak to the guy. He did say its expected to all be done within the next 2 weeks so am assuming end of season. Just passing on.


1.) 02 May 2018 10:35:25
We all have our own assumptions of King but he is a very astute and competent businessman. Can't help but think there is shrewd reason as to why he's missed the share deadline and is there a bigger picture regarding what you have mentioned.

2.) 02 May 2018 10:49:16
Letting himself be dragged through the courts in SA for years due to his tax dodging wasn't very astute. And his dealings with the Takeover Panel haven't been very competent have they?

3.) 02 May 2018 11:21:44
We've met to have huge investment for the for the past 2year n still waiting lol

4.) 02 May 2018 17:59:45
And an astute business man would have money king has stood up in a court of law and says he has none. So he's either skint or a conman. No room for either at our club in my eyes

5.) 02 May 2018 19:56:01
What do we all think will happen if big investment is made in our club? That the investors are just putting money in because they have a few quid spare in the bank and won't miss it? If the stated 25-30mil investment is coming what is it going to be brokered against. That is my only concern. An for that matter i'm sure that 30mil wouldn't be far off what would be needed to buy our club at this point in time. i'm not buying into this whole situation.



19 Mar 2018 13:49:37
I think something you have to realise is that managers like steve clarke and tommy wright. Don't have opposition sitting with 11 men behind the ball setting up banks of defence. Rangers and celtic do. Did Steve Clarke make an amazing tactical change in the game to re address the game play? no he had his team set out one way, defend first and foremost then try find a goal. celtic can dominate play with there midfield so its a lot harder to score against them if you don't have the ball. We try it but can't do it.

I don't think Murty is the answer but I am not demanding him out. Possibly the main reason is who the hell can we get that will fill his place? and be a guarantee top manager? If there is money from the share issue. Forget getting players in first. Spend it on a manager. A great manager can work with lesser value players to create something.

Sometimes I actually feel out team is set out too attacking. Unfortunately we are were we are. Maybe a lot to do with pedro or the board or the players I honestly don't know. All we can ask is that we finish strong being tenacious and carrying abit of luck.


1.) 19 Mar 2018 14:54:05
Steve Clarke

2.) 19 Mar 2018 17:23:50
So your answer to beating teams that pack their defence against us is to play less attacking? When we currently start every game with one up top? Strikes as a bit of an odd one to me.

The issue we have when teams do this is that we don't have players with the guile or a bit of magic to break them down. At the weekend, to a man, every player was waiting on someone else to do something.

Windass pops up with goals but is too often hiding. Murphy is trying and has ability, but constantly cuts onto his right, running in field right to where the numbers are. We need wingers that will stretch a back line and a number 10 that puts his foot on the ball and can play a cute pass to open something up. Either that or commit to two up top more regular and let Cummings and Fredo try to build a partnership.

3.) 19 Mar 2018 17:24:40
I remain all for graeme murty to be given a chance, to become our permanent manager, at the end of the season, on a 12 month rolling contract! I honestly don't see a gamble on doing that! However, if this board of ours does decide to change, they should look at the fantastic record of belgian manager preud'homme has! He has a very impressive CV and is very experienced!

4.) 19 Mar 2018 18:29:54
See these days Coop mate, I reckon youd be quicker listing the folk you don't rate ;)

5.) 19 Mar 2018 22:29:32
I'm really wondering now if supercoop is actually one of the other mob. We have not progressed one little bit bar playing some fancy football against non league and lower league teams yet he wants to persist with the current manager. Why anyone could be happy with the way this season has went I will never know and murty has played a massive part in that. We are in real danger in finishing with a worse points tally than last season which included some dreadful results and a change in management. I'm sorry but I'm not going to happily accept scraping to be 2nd best and that will continue under murty

6.) 20 Mar 2018 08:09:41

Think we will probably beat last years points however not by many and i agree about Murty we haven’t moved forward as some fans seem to think. He isn’t the answe and it’s astonishing some still can’t see this

7.) 20 Mar 2018 08:59:32
maybe I am overthinking but on TV after match Clarke made a point about saying his brothers were big Killie fans thereby distancing himself from the dark side which is the team I have been told the family support and have seen that on here.
I do not know the family at all but does anyone know for sure if he is from a Killie or Dhim background?

8.) 21 Mar 2018 02:30:44
Murty ain't the answer . Billy Davies. de Boer no. Eddie Howe Sean dyche young managers who. manage with what they have no big transfer budgets but bloody successful . dint they prove that week in week out in think. howe or dyche next manager

9.) 23 Mar 2018 10:39:57
Murty is a good coach and now we have a dof in place i see no reason to bin murty off i think its pretty obvious that Mark Alan is recruiting the players murty is doing a fair job i think he should be given a full season to see what he can do if we shed some dead weight and bring in a few good replacements i think we could hit the ground running starting from scratch again could be costly

wasnt the best game, pretty flat, but a win is a win and this game won't be remembered.
'Parking the bus' is a tactic used by many teams, we have done it before. It can be very effective. The poorer team is always going to sit deep and break up play, turn the crowd against there own support, and hope to get that one chance they manage to put away. As many of us have said, last season and before that would have been a draw or a loss for us. We are finding a way to win ugly games and that's a very very good thing.


1.) 23 Jan 2020 12:15:54

2.) 23 Jan 2020 15:19:22
You are right, that sort of game was the sort that we slipped up in last season. I just wish that sometimes the midfielders could put a shot in when we are just outside the box, instead of this continual passing game, anything could happen as a result of a shot on target from that distance. Nitpicking I suppose, but it was frustrating to watch last night!



17 Dec 2019 11:28:43
Just my thoughts on the morelos sending off. To me it was a yellow card offence no ifs or buts. You can't run to away supporters and do that. The way the media and everyone is talking its like he got a straight red card for it. It was a silly thing to do, not vicious not a career ending tackle not assualt, it was a silly celebration.
We have defoe on bench and stewart and I would not be surprised to see jones back in the squad. The hibs game is a must win (as all are) but if we win without moreloes it might shut some people up with there agenda against us and morelos.


1.) 17 Dec 2019 13:13:54
Good post until you mentioned Jones - he can return to Killie anytime.

2.) 17 Dec 2019 14:48:45
All our wingers bar Kent can leave anytime as far as I'm concerned.

3.) 17 Dec 2019 16:00:10
KENTS been GASH anaw man.

4.) 17 Dec 2019 16:04:28
Jones is a good player.

5.) 17 Dec 2019 17:47:50
What's Jones done to warrant getting rid?

6.) 17 Dec 2019 18:44:35
Mrgrumpy bear in mind last 18 months people want rid
Morelos Defoe Arfield Davis Kent Aribo barisic etc etc.



06 Dec 2019 11:08:42
Next 2 games are massive. There is no chance I can see SG changing the CB's, maybe if it had been a home game against a lesser opposition then maybe but no way for a cup final and europe, small chance we might see Katic but goldson won't get dropped.
We let our guard down against the sheep, its about coming back now. Long way to go still in the season. It was poor but the team has to move forward. This time next week we could be holding the first trophy of the season and in the next round of europe or. : (
I want my team to stay strong fight for each other and believe in themselves.
Personally I don't think even after the sheep game I'am any less or more confident for sunday as old firm games don't usually come down to form. I want my team hungry and fighting for every ball from the first whistle to the last.
I know at some points I will be watching the game from behind my fingers and I know I will struggle sitting on a seat for most of it.
Honestly can't wait :D.




04 Nov 2019 19:12:53
Worried about the ko time for final as am working. Will it be 3pm or as it's the old firm will it be a lunch time kickoff?


1.) 04 Nov 2019 19:28:18
Finty announced as 1500.

2.) 04 Nov 2019 21:29:32
Absolute carnage 3pm ko haha.

3.) 05 Nov 2019 14:46:46
Agreed paul I think it will be carnage if it does stay a 3pm ko.
Unsure if it will be changed for tv coverage or on public safety grounds 🙄🙄.

4.) 05 Nov 2019 15:47:38
Andy it has already been confirmed as 3pm. Which i am very surprised at tbh.

5.) 05 Nov 2019 17:00:09
Think the final contractually has to be 3.

6.) 05 Nov 2019 18:13:31
Every chance it is me just being daft but does early kick off not just mean more time for folk to get hammered after the game? With one set of drunk fans raging at the result? Is it not likely to be carnage either way?

7.) 05 Nov 2019 23:05:39

Old Firm games handled really well at Ibrox by the Police.

Assume same at Celtic.

Been at Hampden finals, even Celtic Park 50/ 50 semi final (one of favourite Albertz goals) and all been OK.

Any Carnage is with the Jakey Neds of both sides that will not be anyway near the game, but just looking for a fight, win/ lose or draw.

99 League decider 6.05pm on a Sunday night of a bank holiday weekend was madness.



21 Oct 2019 10:55:26
I get what tav brings to the squad, even though he has had some poor games this season so far. I still think pushing him forward with someone like polster who can play rb or flannagan taking the rb position and that allows tav to not worry asmuch about the defending side of his game. If SG continues to play Tav he will need to do something like that as he has cost us points and goals this season. Not just him obviously team has had some poor games and to be fair some amazing games. Tav can play up the right sitting far higher up with a rb behind him.


1.) 21 Oct 2019 11:10:07
Got to disagree with that flintytint as tavernier would still provide dismal crosses into the box! He is making school boy errors every week now. I’d also say tavernier is one of these players who would struggle with no one directly in front of him if he played further down the right. Time he was dropped!

2.) 21 Oct 2019 11:13:27
And who would we drop further up the pitch for tav? No one mate because isn't better than anyone we have further up the pitch, so its the bench for tav👍.

3.) 21 Oct 2019 11:48:47
Have to agree Bgate / Coldo. Tav needs dropped, Armband given to either Jack or Davies, It’s not that I don’t rate Tav I do, But he ain’t a Right Back, And at this moment in time he wouldn’t get into the midfield. I do think if the right offer comes in January he will be sold. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇦🇺👍.

4.) 21 Oct 2019 12:02:21
I said take the 8mil from newcastle and play flanagan🤷‍♂️👍.

5.) 21 Oct 2019 12:15:32
I think that moment has passed coldo.

6.) 21 Oct 2019 12:30:15
No it hasn't deeb🤷‍♂️👍.

7.) 21 Oct 2019 13:15:54

Who would pay 8mill for Tav?

8.) 21 Oct 2019 13:19:05
Coldo. No one offered 8 million, lucky if worth 2 million.

9.) 21 Oct 2019 13:38:44
I know they never offered it jboy, there was paper talk that newcastle were going to offer it. I said take it. 👍

Deeb, some chinese club🤷‍♂️👍.

10.) 21 Oct 2019 15:26:55
Cool coldo, remember that’s exactly what it is paper talk, tav is one of the poorest right backs I’ve watched in a rangers jersey.

11.) 21 Oct 2019 16:06:23
I'll try and remember jboy👍.

So that 3 is one more than your limit is it? Not defending him on missing as I think the reins of penalty taker should be handed to someone else. Gerrard unknowingly created this elephant in the room by handing Tav the captaincy as he seems to feel like he can't drop his captain, if that was the LB which he has proven many times since his tenure he would drop him in a second. His crossing has become poor and was highlighted nothing more than when we got the goal on sunday and Tom Miller said umpteen times that cross was from tav, that assist was from tav. He has struggled beating the first man with his crosses this season and when you look down the left side BB is firing in pin point crosses, maybe tav should be cutting in a lot more than trying to cross the ball. I don't know. SG is the manager and he picks the team, personally I expected a little lie of 'tav is showing signs of tiredness and we decided to drop him, or tav has a tight muscle and didn't want to risk playing him on sunday' just to deflect the reason he was dropped. Its hard, he IS the captain but on the other hand he is struggling and I think a week out could do him the world of good. As ave said before I think SG used permanent marker when he wrote tav and goldsons names on the board at the start of the season. It is what it is really no matter who SG picks, he picks for a reason we have cheered on far far worse players than tav.
Carrot and the stick, some boys need a good shouting at and shake and others an arm round the shoulder.
I will be cheering him on as he wears our top, has the armband and is our player.

Big Buff as with other strikers are worth whatever people are willing to pay. can't compare him to other strikers as he is different. He needs a season, of hopefully controlling his anger and keeping the ball going into the net, whether its assists or goals. To us he is worth £25 million but to other teams maybe not.

we won't buy a top end striker till morelos leaves. Its pretty simple. He goes, first place is up for grabs, we have money then to spend on a top striker.

Cant really call anything in european games but there were far far tougher teams would could have been pulled out against us. Hopefully full team is fit and if we play the way we played against porto then we should be able to beat them home and away.

I would be happy if we got him, not for £2million though, that's mental money for someone in that league will prob call it £3million now he has an international goal.
But I do agree why is everyone so hostile towards him. His value I would have though would have been £500,000 with a sell on %.

I get what your saying but a manager/ team are rated on the trophies not how good the results are. Not saying SG was a bad move, I think it was a great move but he hasn't won anything yet and with the money he was given he needs to win something this season.

Loyal, I said that before, Gemmill was by far the best choice on offer. He would have brought up more youth. I don't mind scotland getting beat when we are trying to win a game not going into every game with a terrible defence trying to sit with 11 men behind a ball to scrape a draw. Clarkes tactics don't work in international football.
Bring in the youth McCrorie, Hornby and of course Gilmour, name a midfielder in that scotland team who could get anywhere near the chelsea squad. If clarke doesn't start some of the younger players in the next batch of qualifers then he shouldn't be anywhere near the international team.
