  1. Strong enough to win the league?

    This debate about who'll play wide and who'll play in the centre is a bit pointless when MW usually plays a front three who rotate between the positions.  The new faces like Ohalloran and King very much fit that approach
  2. Rangers being investigated for unacceptable songs

    Maybe, but it'd be unwinnable.  If they couldn't win with "we'll keep the pound and all those oil billions", they certainly won't win with adopting the Euro and border controls at Gretna.
  3. *****Official Rangers v Falkirk match thread*****

    We really missed Holt today - really short of movement, esp in final third.  Shiels is only good for a couple of moments a match, which means he can be useful as a sub, but never a starter for me. Waghorn looks injured.
  4. Man of the Match

    Foderingham for me today, without those saves we'd have lost, simple as that 
  5. Will they? I'd be interested to know what your information is on this point, because I haven't seen anything reported that suggests this is the case. The benefit to Rangers of EBTs was 2.5M per year. To argue that this amount made the difference between winning and losing the league is patently absurd. Titles get stripped for rule breaking like bribing refs/fielding inelligible players. It's doubtful that UEFA would accept a precedent being set where any minor financial issue results in sporting results being challenged. I'm completely sure that any attempt could be overturned in the UK courts or CAS. The SPFL know this and won't even try. The previous attempt to strip titles was effectively an attempt to make us give up titles voluntarily in exchange for our continuing existence - their bluff was called and they know there's no chance now. Stop worrying about what Celtic supporters say and put your brain in gear
  6. No, we won't face an "unstoppable juggernaut" The SFA won't go near title stripping again. Calm down
  7. .... and then they sacked him because they wanted a CEO more orientated to profit making
  8. Dean Sheils

    Sheils has ability no doubt about it, but for me has always tended to make too few contributions during most games to justify a starting place. If he comes on as a sub and just makes one goal in a tight game then that's a success so for me he's best used that way.
  9. Biggest Match Attendance You Have Been To

    Scotland v Czechoslovakia in 1977 - official crowd 85 000 but loads of people got in by paying the guys on the turnstiles, myself included. I ended up in the Celtic end with my mate who for some reason had brought his Rangers scarf. He kept it hidden until we scored but then started waving it about which didn't really endear us to some of the crowd around us.
  10. How Players Can Help Us Re Ebts

    No idea if this will work, but sounds a brilliant idea. Well done Is Thornliebank under water yet?
  11. Take A Deep Breath Before Reading.

    I think the main issue is that the BBC can reduce it's NI contributions this way and publicly funded organizations should not be using this type of tax avoidance scheme.
  12. Cardiff City Scout In The Club Deck

    From the size of his woggle ....I'll get me coat
  13. Oduwa Called Up For England U20S

    This I know some ppl don't like our players going on international duty but the message that you are better playing 1st team football at Rangers than sitting in the reserves is good news for us
  14. Formation Needs Changed

    Well, yes - I'm not convinced that the two CBs are a long term solution and I don't think Halliday is really a DM. BUT - the second goal was due to sleeping at a set piece and the third could have been prevented by one of the CBs dropping deeper so even with the players we have available I don't think the formation is the problem
  15. Formation Needs Changed

    I'm pretty sure that 4-3-3 means a back four so there's nothing intrinsically weak about the formation so why change it. If you push your FBs forward then you need a DM who will cover plus at least one reasonably quick CB, neither of which we had last night. We need to get some perspective here - two of the goals last night were due to idiotic defensive lapses NOT how the team lined up.
