  1. What Need To Change/Remain?

    .... and this is where it gets tough - they are very good on the ball - especially at 1-0 up - they are patient, and use the pitch well , that is bourne from confidence, quality and a stable squad. We will get there but it is going to take time.
  2. What Need To Change/Remain?

    I actually thought he had the tactics right yesterday - the team kept it narrow in midfield and were disciplined in their jobs - but Penna ran out of steam - they got a slice of luck and that was that. Pedro is also not frightened to give youth a chance and we just need time to transition one or two more and add some quality in depth. He is also combative and hurting and I'm sure he is plotting his revenge on brown the only way he can - by getting a winning team on the park.
  3. Cardoso and Candias

    That's a f**king really masochistic thing to do! Slap yourself For what it's worth - I thought Penna offered very little. It's the midfield we need to really compete in and Penna showed little ( again)
  4. What Need To Change/Remain?

    There are the standard we need to get to and we are not there but we can't go on making 10 changes per year, every year, we need to build not change all the time and I see a difference between building and 'changing' and for me I would give Pedro that chance.
  5. Damning Statistic

    While I find it hard to condone bookings for bookings sake - a quote from souness always stick in my head - he said something to the effect of -' if a games not going your way the players need to do something to change it - a bit of magic, a trick, something outrageous or EVEN A REALLY HARD TACKLE - something to get the crowd on side and driving you on'
  6. What Need To Change/Remain?

    I think the biggest thing to change is the one that won't - fan patience. We need to be prepared to give this manager 2-3 years. I know that is extremely unpalatable to some who demand / expect instant success but I think that's what we need. 'They' had quality in depth - we don't - we have just transitioned our squad - we need to build in it. I hated that feeling of being beat by them - again - yesterday but I saw things that I liked. Leave aside alves and Wallace missing - Pedro put out a formation that was disciplined and had opportunities. Yes ultimately it failed ( oh for a wee run of luck) but 6 players were in their first of match and that tells. Add some depths of quality, transition a couple of players and grow on this base. Patience! But we lack that - I hope the board keeps its nerve.
  7. It's disappointing, but an improvement

    So much sense in a post but even without reading the thread I know you'll get shouted down
  8. Alves

    McCrorie it is then
  9. Alves

    If Danny Wilson is fit I think he will play ahead of mcCrorie but no matter who plays it'll be interesting!! Kinda gutted at Alves is missing though - really wanted to see if he makes a difference
  10. Alves

    I think he did - I wonder if that has stopped as you never really hear about it now
  11. Have you often wondered where they would have been?

    What have those refugees ever done for us? Nothing. but the Italians did bring us fish and chip shops and ice cream and pizza. well apart from that? the Pakistanis and Indians brought us curry - the Chinese - yep more food. ok apart from food what have immigrants ever done ... their doctors and nurses bring expertise to the NHS - they helped us build our infrastructure - they did our shitty jobs - they harvest our crops ... and so on but not really Rangers related - except for all the immigrants and migrant workers that have played for and play for us now - without 'johnny foreigner' would we have the same rich history? What would our team look like today? but hey it's all a myth.
  12. Herrera as lone striker on Saturday

    Such a strange concept given the selections recently - he has had such limited game time I suspect you're
  13. Why play 1 up front? It doesnt work.

    We won! We never looked in difficulty and the issue was not taking chances, not our formation.
  14. Alnwick

    We always need a back up keeper who is capable of a starting place - and good to see we have that.
  15. So apart from one of the goals and the extra energy nothing I suppose !
