just watched second half on some Brazilian channel, we looked very impressive, high pace, high pressing game, four excellent goals (haven't said that for a while! ) we definitely dominated possession, let's keep it up!

Can anyone tell me the last time a Rangers side came back from 2-0 down to win a match?

Dodoo never given a fair crack of the whip by the breadman, let's hope Pedro can see something in him and gives him a chance, must have impressed today,

I would play dodoo over garner every day of the week. One plays football the other just runs about causing mayhem


2.) 09 Apr 2017 19:04:31
Dodoo is a natural, play him and we will get goals. Good also to see young Bates and Beerman come thru without conceding.

God dodo has one descent cameo and now he is the best in scotland


4.) 09 Apr 2017 20:30:21
Sorry Cee that's an over reaction. It's actually his second decent cameo (first one v. Thistle) but that's more of a sign of him being ignored a lot of the time. By the way who on here suggested he's the best in Scotland?


5.) 09 Apr 2017 20:31:17
I think he has had two decent cameos the other one was the away match v Partick Thistle.
If given the chance to feature regularly Dodoo will score goals as in my opinion he is a natural finisher.


6.) 09 Apr 2017 20:42:24
cee, Miller will be the rangers player of the year this season! Total thoroughbred and top professional, big game player who scores important goals in THE BIG games! Has to get another 1 year deal? We're fortunate to have him!

Living down south, have listened to many matches this season on the radio. Its getting monotonous now listening to us being second to every ball, no fighters in midfield, and apparently no management at any level who can't see this. This is on top of the need to sign good central defenders 18 months ago. I dread it when I hear the opposition are swinging another ball into our box. When will someone at the club wake up and sort out these problems!

2 CBs def won't sort the mess out. Having 2 FBs who sit in and tuck in when required won't sort it either.
Our midfield is root of problem, they are too lightweight and just not good enough. they can't keep the ball, when they lose it they can't win it back, they offer zero protection to defence and they definitely don't add to our goal tally!
Back to basics shape wise is needed asap.
3-5-2 or 4-4-2 with little complications. aye the movement was nice to watch against part timers but it's completely ineffectual now if we can't put the effin ball in the net and keep clean sheets.


2.) 20 Feb 2017 22:00:02
You watch any possession based team. You see them pressing as a team, winning the ball back high up the pitch, Overloading the wings. midfielders making runs beyond the strikers. We literally do none of that. Instead we lose the ball and usually it ends up in the back of the net or a goal kick. Rinse and repeat.


3.) 20 Feb 2017 23:12:58
Totally agree. Sundays match highlighted it perfectly. We were second to every ball, casual in possession, edgy and nervy, Haber won every ball in the air, no fight, no spirit, no skill, too many posted missing. Apart from that we did well imo


4.) 21 Feb 2017 00:35:19
Should have brought back Boughie when he offered


5.) 21 Feb 2017 00:39:20
No matter the system, our players' hearts must be bursting out their jersey, when they take to the pitch. They must be disciplined with a will to win.
What we have are imitations of players, who are only interested in what is in it for them.

I honestly believe that until we have a manager that can instal that mindset we will never be a force.

In my travels over 60 years supporting our club, I have grown up with some of our greats, I played in the 60's with our youth team [ Drumchapel amateurs. ] and had the pleasure of training at Ibrox and playing a couple of games.

However, a big regret was that I was not good enough to wear the jersey. Many of my mates were, but as the years go on we are losing them and, all the while, we have a group of imposters that are supposed to be idols for our youngsters.

Watched that on TV last night,the commentators were right, we were a shambles. I have been in favour of giving warbs a chance, but it was obvious 18 months ago that the defence was the weak point and nothing has changed. They started like it was a training kick about, no pace, not trying to pass forwards, and the same players making the almighty cock-ups. If warbs can't see it then god help us, we'll be lucky to get 3rd at this rate

Listening on radio from afar today, we definitely need a midfield general, and he must get some central defenders who can defend, I think he has to drop the 433 formation as well.

1.) 31 Dec 2016 15:48:54
We didn't play 433 and its nothe centerbacks that worry me its guys like tav and halliday not following runs that cause problems! And the biggeat problem of all is regular punters like us can highlight the threats from celtic yet nothing is done to counter it! No one against Sinclair (there biggest threat) no one close enough to dembele when balls played into him and no one tracking Armstrong from deeper! Basic mistakes that never seem to be addressed.

I agree about those two. Gerrard says we're short of confidence, we were 2 behind with a game in hand, confidence should have been sky high! Seen an extract of the captains programme comments, disgraceful, he is just confirming that he hasn't got a clue or a captains bone in his body. Wholesale change needed in that team now before it gets even worse, but has SG got the bottle to do it?

The killie manager said at ht he told his players to up the pace and move the ball faster,! - exactly what we should have been doing, gerrard hinting that players can't handle the pressure, and if that's the case he should make changes, but I imagine he'll stick with his favourites. Subs should have been on no later than 60 minutes, and the snails pace that we are now playing at week in week out is abysmal to watch. We have no cutting edge, the midfield don't run at the opposition, they run sideways across them. Awful to watch since the break, something drastic needs changing fast. Gerrard did say that was schoolboy defending, and it was, it seems every goal we concede is because of this. I am shocked at that performance.

Gutted with result, they have a lot to thank their goalie for today, reminded me a bit of what "the goalie" used to do to them years gone by. The next two games are enormous now this week, hope Gerrard and McAlister can get them off the floor after today. The bench was what it was, personally I would have brought stewart on instead of barker, who I'm yet to be convinced by. Did Mcgregor have to make any saves today? - must be a record for an Old Firm game. Onwards and upwards now, the famous.

That was painful watching after the first 15 minutes, nobody in midfield seemed to want the ball apart from kent in patches. We always seem to play badly after an international or winter break. were we lucky it was killie and not Cowdenbeath? Worralls mistake was unbelievable, there was no one within 30 yards of him when he took possession, but he still manages to lose it. Morelos/ defoe will only work if they are together in the box, not one on the wing and the other in there, but midfield weren't supplying them with anything. I must admit i'm a bit old fashioned, I prefer centre halves to be stoppers, not bring the ball out and get caught, but where were the midfield. What has katic got to do to get a game?

Don't think it will matter what striker we sign unless we start playing with two up front, 442? - that worked a bit better when laff came on today and we started playing a more direct game. All the opposition have sussed our one up front system and if they snuff el buffalo we are toothless in attack.

Baz the bear, I was saying that all last season, he has loads of talent/ trickery but when he's on the left the effect of it is lost when he has to stop and cut back in onto his right foot. I too hope he's given a place on the right.

If its true that we are signing Hagi, then I think he would be better in the middle behind the strikers, he is good with both feet, but he looked out of place to me when playing wide. We wait and see what happens!

We sat off them from the kick off, nobody in midfield wants the ball, we have no pace going forwards, and our defending at times is woeful. Kamberi JJ and Hagi must start on sunday.

Like every other bear, I want the whole team on top form again, but watching Goldson scares me as well, you can almost see him thinking about what to do with the ball when it comes near him, and by the time he's thought about it its too late! Is it the pressure, ? I don't know, but he certainly needs to sharpen up a bit, especially this week.

BAR72, got to agree with you, never see any variety in our corners, and your comments re Alfie are spot on. I would drop him for Leverkusen game. Kent looked better on the right (well he is right footed! ) I might be getting old but when I was a kid by and large you played on the side of the park where your stronger foot was. I've been screaming for SG to play kent on the right for months, to go outside defenders instead of this cut back inside nonsense. 3pts is 3pts I suppose, tough games the next two.
