  1. Windass stat

    I think we need to stop thinking of him as a 'number 10'. He's not that type of player. He's essentially a second striker who takes a deeper starting position but he's not really a midfielder who'll get a hold of a game. If we play him we have to accept we're essentially playing 442.
  2. ***Official Rangers v Tarriers Thread***

    One word sums it up for me. Naivety. We go 2-1 up and then stop pressing, sit back and hope to see out 60 minutes. Then they have a man sent off and we have no idea how to capitalise. Murty's done well for us but his lack of experience transferred to the players today.
  3. Alex Rae Interview

    Very under-rated as footballer in my opinion. Was a pivotal player in the 04-05 title win.
  4. Say what you want about him now but

    We can argue over terminology whether he was world class or just a great player, but there's no doubt that at his peak he wouldn't have been out of place at any side in the world. Not saying he'd have shone at every club on the world, but he was good enough to hold his own. He bossed games in Europe against top Bayern and Parma teams at a pretty young age. Also, at the time he got injured for Blackburn he was their captain and stand-out player at a time when they were a decent mid-table EPL team. If he hadn't got that injury I think he'd have been an EPL mainstay for the rest of his career.
  5. Rossiter

    Another Warbuton gamble that didn't pay off. Rossiter: has potential but is injury prone. constantly injured Kranjar: has ability but is injury prone and leg might have gone. Gets injured long term and legs have definitely gone. Barton: has ability but has history of being disruptive. Bottles is and then is disruptive. Literally every high profile signing he made backfired. I'm sure Jordan's a nice lad but he'll never make it here.

    Bone rubbers? Some of the physios in this thread could rub boners.
  7. Pedro doesn't care.

    The funny thing about that was that I saw links to the Nicholas and Lambert thing posted on FB through a celtic page. It's like they're actually proud of a pair of barely-literate morons spouting barely-coherent nonsense. At least we have the decency to be embarrassed by trumpets like Butcher, but the filth seem to celebrate their dim-witted former players.
  8. Niko Kranjcar

    I really don't see how that changes my comment. It was my sarcastic way of saying that I don't see anyone wanting to pay for him given his age and injury history.
  9. Niko Kranjcar

    How do folk think we'll get a fee? "We'll take one of your highest earners, an injury-prone 33 year-old who has only managed a handful of games and has had no significant impact at all." "Aye, but'll cost ye." Phone down.

    I was literally scrolling through this, just about to type: "Can't believe we're three pages in and no-one has posted the Simpsons' Dug's eyes" Well played, Sir. We'll played.
  11. Pedros Local Assistant

    Barry is one of my all time favourite players, was absolutely phenomenal in 02-03, genuinely one of the best in Europe. However, I don't really get the point of appointing him purely on the basis of what he achieved as a player over a decade ago. Surely the point of the local coach is that it's someone who can advise tactically against teams in our league about whom Pedro will know very little. Barry hasn't been involved in the Scottish top flight in 7 years. Telling Pedro (and the players) what Rangers is all about is not a full time job. If anything, it's a one-off chat with some some extra wee input here and there. If that's all we're paying someone for then why not just ask ex-players to come in and speak from time to time. Otherwise the coach should be...Well, you know, a coach. Someone who's tactically astute and has decent knowledge of our opposition. Barry ticks neither box for me. As an aside though, the abuse he gets is well out of order. 100% a Rangers legend.
  12. Chances of securing 2nd?

    Absolutely, and anyone who thinks otherwise needs to have a serious word with themselves . We are Rangers. They are Aberdeen. //Thread
  13. Legends Game

    17 of us going...it's my stag-do that weekend, been arranged for ages. When this game was announced, couldn't believe my luck. Off to see the legends then out to get plastered. :beer1: We're all in the main stand, wearing stupid T-shirts with my face on them.
  14. The trouble in Manchester was much more the fault of the Rangers support than some will ever admit. Our 'traditions' began purely as a reaction to what was happening across the city. Barry Ferguson should never have been allowed to win the battle against PLG. None of us really know anything about our financial woes, despite how assertively some fans state their case. As much as our support for the troops in commendable, some fans do see it as a point scoring exercise. Most Celtic fans are, generally, decent people. Doesn't mean we shouldn't 'hate' them in a football supporting sense, but some take it far too far. I'll get my coat...

    And I take it the Go Compare man is delighted? Never knew he was a bear! Just thought it was Aleksander the Meerkat.
