    I live too far away to attend many matches.

  1. Genuine question; do you feel the same way in expectations of players loyalty towards the club?
  2. Notice Batshuayi decided to throw the ball rather than belt it off the post and in to his face after this goal!
  3. ...never defeated? We won the game so that is nothing to do with the complaint, indeed the best time to raise issues such as this as the easy sour grapes riposte holds no weight!
  4. Dundee then Hamilton; could make a song out of that! It's a tough run of games (with 2 Euro fixtures to fit in there as well)! Never like looking too far ahead and trying to predict results, or how many points we will be ahead/behind etc. ...mainly because any time this has been done recently an almighty let down has followed. BUT, these are the challenges you face at Rangers, and what champions must be prepared to overcome!
  5. Don't think he is a bad guy, or really deserving of any hate...or indeed deserving of very much attention to be honest! Thought he came across quite immature and I don't think he has the talent to back up his attitude; but that is someone else's problem now. I wish him best of luck, but don't ever see him playing at a high level.
  6. I think that was actually the main motivation; our only appeal could be on mistaken identity and we were never going to win on that basis...but would love to hear how a referee can justify a booking where TV evidence shows him looking away from the incident??? If we can get that on record then it just makes a mockery of the SFA!
  7. I would say fair comment in the context...probably just looked at away European ties.
  8. I do like Tav and value what he brings to the team; we would certainly miss him when he's gone if Flanagan is his replacement but if big money comes in and used to sign a RB replacement as well as add some creativity to the midfield/final 3rd...may not be the worst option, although not sure if January is best time for that! Morelos I would not consider selling unless crazy money!
  9. As baffling decisions go, throwing Sadiq on in defence would have been right up there with the best of them! Agree bringing Wallace on at a corner was a strange one, I can't remember in detail now...was he waiting to come on for a while and that was first stoppage? This was early in his tenure so the "experimenting" with 3 at the back was just that...he was probably still getting a feel for the players and what systems/combinations worked best. I imagine he went with Lafferty due to his experience of the fixture against celtic so can understand that logic...had they played together before that; if not saying "doesn't work" is a hindsight call, rather than a baffling decision at the time. But agree the warning signs regarding that pairing were surely known ahead of Livi. He has appeared to chop/change Worrell & Katic randomly at times...but we don't know what he is seeing in training so am not sure could call that baffling. Both have played well at times and looked shaky at other times. Agree, the subs does appear to be a more reactive than proactive thing for him. Not sure I would call that baffling, but maybe more a sign of a manager that errs on side of caution.
  10. Sad news, thoughts with his family & friends.
  11. Aye, remember that. Souness hit Durrant with a heavy challenge and Durrant asks "is that all you got?" to which Souness responds "no" and catches him with a right hook...imagine if they had twitter in those days!!!

    It does seem an element of panic about the signing as we had no cover at all for Morelos...as it turns out he still isn't seen as cover for Morelos even with Laff cup-tied! But is the only failure in transfer market so far and you can't really knock that strike rate! Wouldn't be the worst thing to see him move on in January and a better striker signed up to help us battle on 4 fronts ?
  13. The selection or non-selection of players does add some intrigue but can see the benefit of everybody playing an having a real chance to contribute from the outset. Must be a little bit sh1t you've worked for two years to get there and only get 1/2 games (only one of which being actually picked to play). I think everybody plays the 3 days of Presidents Cup? I think Yanks line up Speith/Reed, Tiger/JT, DJ/Koepka, DeChambeau/Fowler. Europe Rose/Stenson, Fleetwood/Molinari, McIlroy/Rahm, Casey/Noren. Wouldn't surprise to see Garcia/Rahm & McIlroy/Poulter together at some point.
  14. The season was not extended, the last game was the Scottish cup final and played on it's original scheduled date. The league did finish 4 days later than planned but the only alternative to that would have been for us to play Sat, Mon, Wed, Fri, Sun...given celtic complained about the delayed finish I guess that was their preferred solution! If they did extend the season by delaying the Scottish Cup Final it would have freed up another weekend for league business, as it was we played our final 3 league games in 6 days, dropping 5 points and losing league by 3!
