  1. Blue laces thoughSuperb.
  2. The salaries used to be disclosed as player A made between x amount and y amount. Player B between y amount and z amount, is not that plc's have to disclose what the salaries are but not whom earned said salary ? It used to be in the accounts.
  3. Bit of rose tinted glasses going here, he was Pish.
  4. No, no, no, you at the wind up ? Is it photoshopped ? Naw.
  5. Variation on a 4-3-3 look at the video about 'Tacital Periodisation ' it tells you there. He sets the pattern out and fills in the blanks with the players.
  6. It's alright saying we are not a feeder club, but there are teams all over the world with better finances than us that have to sell their best players simply because of the power of the almighty dollar. The EPL can squander millions on prospects, pay them ridiculous amounts of money and push agents to get players to leave. Its not great but it's where we are, even two years ago salaries in the English Championship for first team players was averaging over a million a year. And no I don't have an answer, the Sky deals have destroyed the rest of British let alone Scottish football, never have these clubs had so much money and never have they been so skint. It comes in from TV deals and disappears to Agents and Players. We had signed England's Captain, Goalie et al, that will never happen again unfortunately. As other posts have said the scouting network is paramount get them in on the way up sell for profit if you have to but keep a winning team and use the cash raised to reward the existing players and invest which along with winning things may keep them here a bit longer. There a few Euro teams who build get success, sell on then regroup this may be our only option to be able to do a turn in Europe. I've written this, easy in black and white but a damn site harder in reality.
  7. Feel free to edit, murder on iPad
  8. Wag horn was sold for £3. Something million, doesn't make him a player.
  9. It'll be 4-3-3 according to that video that was posted.
  10. Totally agree but when push came to shove pressure was applied, we were cast to the wolves to protect the rest of the empire.
  11. I think that wi some of the testimony the Bank never did us any favours and pressure was applied on the board.
  12. Might clear things up Four things Rangers fans should know about Dalcio Rangers target Dalcio arrives into Glasgow Airport. Picture: SNS CRAIG FOWLER 16:09Monday 05 June 2017 Share this article 12 HAVE YOUR SAY Rangers are closing in on the capture of 21-year-old Benfica prospect Dalcio on a season-long loan. Here’s everything you need to know about the player. Keep up to date with all our sport news on The Scotsman’s Sport page on Facebook He’s not a forward It’s been widely reported that Dalcio is a striker, though this is not the case. He is listed as an “attacker” on his Soccerway profile and as a “forward” on Wikipedia, so it’s easy to see where the confusion has come from (it’s also been suggested he’s played as a striker at youth level). However, for Benfica’s B-team last season he was largely used as a midfielder, operating in the No.8 role where he would be expected to contribute to both attack and defence. It should certainly make Rangers fans feel better about the impending signing, seeing as he’s netted only three times in 76 games across his numerous spells with Belenenses and Benfica II. Though it’s still not a great record for a midfielder, it’s still a lot more palatable than if he were a striker. He’s a pacy midfielder Dalcio has a certain amount of quickness to his game and isn’t afraid to move the play forward from deep. He’s got a fair degree of skill and can beat a man, but more often than not he’ll look to find a team-mate with a pass, acting as the link-man between defence and attack without making too much happen himself in the final third (he had three assists and one goal in the league). His total of 1085 passes was the 17th most of any player in the Segunda Liga last season, and he sat in 11th for the most passes played in the final third, so he is someone willing to take chances and move the play forward. He’s also predominately left-footed. READ MORE - Rangers targets Dalcio and Fabio Cardoso arrive in Glasgow He has limited experience at the highest level Those numbers are all well and good in the context of the Portuguese second tier, but how will he handle things in the Scottish top flight? He’s made only 19 appearances in the Primeira Liga in his career thus far, with just nine starts. Compared with some of the other midfielders Rangers have chased in this window, this looks the biggest gamble. Ryan Jack and Graham Dorrans are familiar with the Scottish top flight, while Carlos Pena is a Mexican international. If Dalcio completes his deal, his pedigree would suggest he’ll be a back-up. 16 of his top flight appearances came in his first spell at Belenenses, prior to his transfer to Benfica. It does seem like the switch has halted his career momentum and Caixinha will be hoping a change of environment, and the challenge of playing abroad, helps the player realise his early potential. Played against England in Toulon tournament Dalcio played four of Portugal’s five games at last year’s tournament as the Portuguese under-23 side finished in third place. This included the opening group game, where they lost by a single goal to an England side boasting several Premier League stars, including Duncan Watmore and Calum Chambers, who would go on and win the tournament. The Portuguese youngsters would bounce back, winning their next three games, but it wasn’t enough to qualify for the final as group winners.
