  1. You can't blame King for the shortcomings on the park. Warburton was the manager and he is responsible for the current state of our squad. King gave Warburton plenty of funds to build a team but he simply wasn't up to it.
  2. Signs up to RangersMedia with the username "Declan"
  3. Celtic will continue to outspend us and it's unrealistic to expect us to accumulate a squad of better footballers than they have. We play the same formation as they do with inferior players and that's simply not going to work given the gap in quality. We need to find a way of winning on a budget. I still maintain that turning us in to a more physical and direct team makes the most sense all things considered. We can more realistically get guys who will battle and bully than guys who are gifted footballers. I think we need CBs who can give us an areal threat at set-pieces, battlers in midfield, traditional wingers, and a striker who can score. Celtic wont like coming up against a big physical team and neither will anyone else in this league.
  4. You've missed the point entirely. I never said Mike was financially crippled. I said it suited Mike that Rangers were financially crippled as it allowed him to take from us on the cheap. That's exactly what he was doing with small short-term loans.
  5. No one with money is going to take this club on. There's no money in Scottish football. It makes more sense to by a League 1 club and try to get it promoted to the EPL. Mike was only interested because he wanted to grow his Sports Direct business up here. He didn't, and does not, give a fuck about Rangers or how well we do on the pitch.
  6. It does make sense. When financially crippled Mike is able to get us on the cheap and that's exactly what he was doing. I'm not just talking about owning the majority of shares. I firmly believe he would've gone after ownership of the training ground and the stadium itself. We should be thanking King for getting rid of the fat self serving bastard.
  7. King was a director during David Murray's era but he played no part in what happened to us back in 2012. In fact, I think King lost a lot of money when the company went under. Sunce King has came back in he's been trying to stabilise this club on and off the pitch. It's easy to point the finger of blame at King but who do you think is going to replace him? Is there a millionaire Rangers fan out there who is desperate to come in and throw money at Pedro?
  8. The damage has taken more than two years to fix. Rangers need to return to a position of financial stability and we're slowly doing that. I think we recently turned a small profit for the first time in years. We're still fighting to get a fair share of the TV rights and our jersey sales. It wasn't a "bogeyman" that caused all this it was HMRC, Graig Whyte, Charles Green, Ally McCoist, Mark Warburton, etc. The club has been subjected to years of financial abuse and incompetence. To my knowledge King is trying to repair that.
  9. Ashley only put money in as a loan. He wanted to be paid back and of course we couldn't do it. Big Mike started to take things from the club when we failed to pay back his loans. Eventually he would've taken the training ground and stadium for a fraction of what they were worth. As I said, he was giving us just enough rope to hang ourselves. It's not in Mike's interest to have a cash rich Rangers as he can't then have power over us. Mike doesn't want a successful Rangers, he just wants Rangers.
  10. We would've been beat today no matter how we lined up. Cetic have far superior players. What will change during the summer? Pedro will have the opportunity to bring in his own players. Once those guys are in we'll better see what direction the manager wants to take us. If you want to write off the manager already go ahead but I'm going to wait and see how he does next season.
  11. We need the board to find money that can be invested in the playing squad. We then need a manger who is capable of finding talented players at a price we can afford. The manager then needs to get the best from those players and challenge Celtic. We'll only stop Celtic's dominance by winning the league. We then get access to the Chamipons League pot while simultaneously denying them that big European cash.
  12. Pedro should not be judged on what happens this season. We were in complete disarray when he took over. Expecting him to take over Warburton's team and beat Celtic is ridiculous. Let's wait until after the summer window and see how his team performed next season.
  13. A well thought out counter argument.
  14. Mike Ashley was giving us just enough rope to hang ourselves with. A few million and if we don't pay it back he gets the logos. He would've taken the training ground and the stadium from this club. He doesn't give a fuck about Rangers he wanted to use the club to grow his Sports Direct business. King has the clubs best interests at heart. He's putting money in but sadly it's not all being spent on the playing squad. Money is needed to repair the damage left by previous owners who brought the club to its knees. King gave money to Warburton but he pished it all away on shite and left us in a sorry state which Pedro now needs to fix during the summer. Blaming the current board for the mess we're in is wide of the mark.
  15. Then we agree.
