  1. Absolutely we do. We have plenty of attacking options in terms of creating chances but we very much need an out and out goalscorer If there is one thing we were very guilty of last season it was not converting chances - having someone who wants to/is able to bag more of these opportunities is a must for us if we are to succeed this year
  2. He has been completely rejuvenated this season under Warburton and whilst he might not play as regular a role next season in the first xi, he will continue to have a massively positive effect on the dressing room. hes an excellent pro and a great example to the younger players, not just as to what it takes to make it generally, but also what it takes to make it as a Ranger
  3. It has indeed but the journey is far from over. For us to be back we need to be back at the business end of the top league and we've yet to show we can take our place back there. the end of this season has shown that we are by far not the finished article and that we need to strengthen. hopefully we can do this and take our rightful place back at the top of the premier league
  4. Looking for 2 x spaces on a bus going from or via Dunfermline area for Sunday. Any help would be appreciated!
  5. Both - they are horrific individually and as a pairing
  6. It would be great to see a scheme like this although hard to implement due to the nature of current [layer contracts. Achieving something that rewards player performance as opposed to them merely turning up for a pya cheque would be a big step forward
  7. Hope his side get pumped - piss poor excuse for a footballer and a cunt of a guy
  8. Our ability to push on for the full 90 minutes is one of the major differences between us under Warburton than under McCoist. That goes down to fitness in large part and a desire to win that seemed completely lacking last year in particular. That said, I would much rather see us put the game to bed earlier than we have in the recent games!
  9. There are arguably only about 5 or 6 clubs in the world (Barca, Bayern, R Madrid and 2-3 clubs in England) that are not "selling clubs", ie, where each player does not have a price that woudl be accepted for their players. Especially since the post-Bosman era, players are a commodity and commodities will be traded. We are much lower down the football foodchain than we once were - partly due to previous financial mis-management and partly due to the gulf created by our lack of TV revenue versus the major European league's getting great TV contracts. That means, like it or not, that every player will have their price, be it Wagge, Tav, etc. Our financial position is by no means secure in the long term given that we are surviving on loans and will be for the foreseeable future until a share issue comes along (and even then the share issue will have to cover the cost of the loans already granted). That makes us even more susceptible to bids from other clubs. The FM-style level of values that we place on our players isn't going to be what their true value is to the club as well. We have to remember where we are as a club and also the level of player we currently have on our books. Whilst is it far better than what we had over the year or 2 before, there are no Messi's or Ronaldo's in our current squad and the price at which we sell will be reflective of this.
  10. Will be good to see the return of the failures to Ibrox.and even better to see us put them to the sword
  11. Seems the old sporting integrity appetitie has diminished significantly now that the harsh reality of turning on our club has well and truly bitten into the finances of the other clubs
  12. Good to see this has gone down well and yes, it is Watermans paying the cost and not Waggy...and not through an EBT either! It came on the back of Andy Murray doing a donation for aces so can't take credit for the novel ideal I'm hoping a few other kit sponsrors will follow our lead and do the same to help the foundation
  13. I reckon no based purely on his playing ability. I' don't think we shoudo have re signed him in the first place. One thing that we don't see though is what he is like off the park. It may be that Warburton would have a Eustace type role for him as a senior pro. I'll like to hope we can bolster the front line in January or the summer though as , for me, both Miller and Clark are not good enough
  14. I took my wife to her one and only game of football at our last game of the season in 2012/13 against Berwick at Ibrox. Game was terrible although we did win 1-0 and it was the first step on "the journey" I only took her as she was pregnant at the time and I wanted to ensure Rangers were in my first born's blood! The wife hasn't been asked back and no further plans to do so
  15. Sorry for your loss Gogzy Rip
