how many players do we need?

23 posts in this topic

when/if we get our sfa licence and are allowed to sign players how many do we need???

at the moment my opinion is we need atleast 10 in to make us have a big enough squad to compete properly.

if as i expect tht alexander, wallace, goian , edu , boca and maybe even kirk and bedoya also go that would take the number up to 17. with 2 weeks until start of season we are in an impossible situation.

question is how many do we need in? and how many will we get in?

my answers are 10+ we need in and i have no clue if or how many we will get.

10 at minimum. If those you mentioned leave I'd say 15.

We need SPL/Div1 quality players. I think our current squad would win division 3 but we can't afford to change half the team every year.

We need a good LB, LM, RM and CM definitely.

imo we should not be signing anyone on more than 1-2k week. i believe that will probs get you div 1 quality as any spl player moving to rangers would likely want a decent wage to play in the lower leagues

Take the squad the other night:

RANGERS: Alexander (Gallacher); Cole, Broadfoot, Hegarty, Wallace, Mitchell (Clark), Hutton, McLeod, Crawford (Naismith), Bedoya, McCulloch.

Perry and Hutton are missing from that an I assume that's our first team squad.

isnt there a loans system similar to the one football league clubs in england use where there allowed loans even after the transfer window has closed?

A right back, left back as cover, two wide midfielders and at least one new striker.

That should be priority just now, and then look to bulk the squad up a bit.

I don't think we need/will get 10 players or more in. The team that started the closed door game plus Perry, we have about 12 players who we recognise. Add to that a good few more youth players, I think we'll get about 6 or 7 in to make a squad of about 20 to 22 players. No more will be needed, and I don't think Green will be willing to shell out wages for many more players.

Depends how many more leave, not that many though. Add a couple of experienced players and mixed them with what youth players we already have.

If we're able to at all, I think we'll sign as many as nine players.

Didnt Ally say we needed something like 20 players recently? I doubt we will get that many but we need to be in for 15 or so i would imagine.

You just posted the team which had Hutton in it, then said he's missing?

My mistake...

Meant Hemmings but he's out for 5 months now.

I agree with our manager, at least 12 players are needed.

We need to have two players (minimum) for each position.

The team that played the other night would win div 3 quite easy I would say. Need about 5 players maybe then the squad can be made up by youth players.

I just imagine some young lads who always loved the rangers getting his chance when they wouldn't have previously, that would be a dream for any good young pro.

My father does the write ups for bonn accord summit in wishaw and says the team is full of young promising players who look like they have bright futures

Somewhere between 6-10 considering were also preparing for 2nd Division providing we get promoted.

I don't think it will be as much as 10, our youngsters are actually quite good.

And I think you can only register something like 22 over 21s anyway

If everyone who is here now stays.. 7 or 8.

They don't all need to be SPL players though, a few established lower league players would be fine (tu).

I think we'd be fine with 5 excellent D3 players, ie. Teale, Black, Beattie etc.

Although we'll need to replace whoever leaves from Alexander, Bedoya, Wallace, McCulloch, Broadfoot, Hutton.
