Dominating performance and a game we would have dropped points from last season.
What a goal from BB, hopefully give him a much needed confidence boost.
I thought we rode our luck today with their striker missing that sitter in the 90th minute, we also got lucky against Killie missing an absolute sitter.

We need to put away our chances as we don't get to many from open play against these teams that pack their defence.
I also hope we sign a big target man for these type of games.

Felt we missed Ojo to run at their defence and cut inside and also thought Aribo and Jones were below standard today, in these type of games we need everyone up for it and willing to give that bit extra to break them down.
Anyway great start to the season and roll on Thursday night.

Good solid performance tonight. The midfield is superb and with the addition of Andy King the quality of the depth is pleasing, in fact the depth for nearly all positions is great.
Would like to get a natural left back in and a target man but think this team can win the league this season.

solid performance tonight

anyone think their cntr fwd wld be worth a punt?

big strong skillful wld give is a great target man option.

Agree on their forward jabs trev. Solid looking and good feet. Just didn't get s sniff at goal because defence was solid.

Trev, I like the look of him but I don't think he is what we need right now.
He is good with the ball at his feet and technically sound but didn't really trouble us in the air which is the type of striker we need for a plan 'B' but that said they didn't really revert to the high ball all that often.
I'd keep an eye on him for when Morelos leaves.

looked good but likely to be a few million.
and is he willing to come in as no. 3?

5.) 16 Aug 2019 07:14:14
I thought I'd read they were after 6 million for him. Might be wrong but if that's the case it's a no goer. can't spend that sort of money in a backup striker.

Thought the big no 9 tried his heart out but not good enough for the Gers🇬🇧.

7.) 16 Aug 2019 09:15:15
Their Cf did look decent trev. I thought we were very good again, I thought ojo was much better and morelos is a different player altogether. I thought kamara davis and jack controlled the game and arfield was just class. we are building a bit of momentum. I thought when jack went off we started to lose the midfield battle, I can see docherty going back out on loan with the arrival of king. I don't much about warsaw but very confident that will beat them. 👍.

Coldo, u r right. As u know I’m a big fan of Alf’s but he has upped his game. Attitude looks good and his awareness of teammates has improved significantly.

9.) 16 Aug 2019 15:58:58
Also coldo I have noticed an improvement in tabs defensive play, also feel when he breaks forward jack provides good cover.

First post guys so be gentle lol. We got away with that today. Better team for the first half but thought we looked a bit unbalanced with no natural wide man on the left. In games where we will dominate ( the majority of the league games ) Davis and Jack shouldn't be in the starting 11, we are losing creativity, but thought Jack was our best player in first half today.
Hopefully Ojo and Aribo will have learned a lot today about Scottish football but neither impressed, could have done with Doc on for his engine in the second half when we seemed to let Killie take control.
Barisic was poor and I'm now starting to think he's not going to make it at Rangers, the weight of the shirt as they say on some players is too much.
I agree with a lot of people that Defoe needs to start most of these tight games as he links up with Arfield a lot better bringing him into the box a lot more.
Thought me missed Kent today but will see what Jones can offer.
Good positive from today is we looked good attacking corners lol
Also thought SG should have made his changes sooner :)


1.) 04 Aug 2019 21:03:01
Your post is spot on except for jack and davis👍.

2.) 04 Aug 2019 21:33:06
Its time to get our cash back on barasic the guy is a coward in scottish footballw has ability but we are not gonnae get it today it was pass back or float a meaningless baw in the only reason he looked good against us in europe was because he was up against tav.

3.) 05 Aug 2019 02:28:06
We do have a wide player who can take a man on and has a good ping of a shot but we want to send him to Leith apparently.

4.) 05 Aug 2019 07:07:11
I wouldn't be letting glenn middleton get anywhere near that mob from leith. With the kent deal now looking dead, i think we should keep middleton at rangers.

5.) 05 Aug 2019 10:07:56
Jack and davis can play fine together. They were getting all the plaudits end of last season.

The main difference is replacing Kent with ojo, who offered nothing yesterday. Jones needs to get his chance.

Also, aribo looks a cracking player when on the front foot but, too often takes the easy sideways or back pass, slowing play down. Kamara settled quickly last season, and I would start with him until aribo finds his feet.

We have options, but if we've another signing to make, needs to be creative.

I'm behind SG however I do agree with some of what zikos is saying. Put Europe to the side he hasn't achieved much for us domestically. Last season apart from 2 old firm wins and a good away win against the sheep he struggled tactically against the teams that put men behind the ball and had no plan B. I actually think he got lucky when Morelos got suspended and we had to play Defoe and change our shape which freshened it up and took teams by surprise.

I was hoping this year we would have brought in the big target man for such games, whilst yes we won against Killie and St Mirren we did struggle as it seemed we played the same way but tried to do it better. sounds familiar.
For me he has to the end of the season. If we are 9 points behind with nothing changed in regards to learning how to break teams down ( how much time does he need to learn ) or getting out thought against Celtic then I think he has to go.

Look how it has worked out for Docherty! Unfortunately he can't get any game time and needs to be loaned out again for his development rather than wasting on the bench or at times not even in the squad.

Not any youth getting any chances with SG just now as he seems to have gone down the tried and trusted route.
Hastie has potential, whether we make the best of it time will tell. Would be nice to start developing young players and sell them on for a profit after a few years.

I'd certainly keep an eye on him Jim as he had a decent season last year and started this season ok. Only 22 and a big unit but would like to see how he does this season or at least until xmas.
We do need a big hitman up front for when the majority of the teams pack their defences, not sure why SG hasn't bought or loaned one yet.
