    Gollum Gone ?

    BBC Scotland still has characters like Gordon, McLean and the rest. I'm happy enough if they still stay away from Ibrox. I would be content to have the BBC broadcasters from England (5 Live etc) there though. Guess we can't have one without the other, but let's not kid ourselves that the removal of one bad egg from the Glasgow outfit will solve the problem.

    ***The Official Rangers V Hearts Match Thread***

    Back from game - someone else has probably said this already, but the second half on Thursday and the first half today were the best periods of play I've seen from us for a long, long time. Two great results, and some wonderful football played by us in each game.
  3. Morelos deserved his booking. He's a loose cannon. The problem last night was that yet again a Scottish referee displays amateurish incompetence by failing to treat all other players by the same standard he applied to Morelos.

    ****Official Good Guys v St Johnstone*****

    Thought Goldson wasn't quite up to his normal high standard today, but otherwise, really strong perfomances throughout the team. Special mentions to Candeias and Kent. Some outstanding football from us at times, and great to see the pressure converted to goals.

    your greatest atmosphere ever at Ibrox.

    Absolutely. I loved watching the West German team on TV in those days - much preferred them to the Dutch, actually. So, to see most of them playing at Ibrox was extra special. I was at the game the year before (I think it was ) when we played Bayern in the Fairs Cup and they scored a goal direct from a supposedly indirect free kick and it was awarded. In the 1972 game, I think the moment I knew we had them was when Beckenbauer and Maier stated arguing with each other. That, and Bud sitting on the ball!

    ECWC Semi Final 2nd leg, v Bayern Munich 1972. Been waiting for another night like that since I was 12.

    I was at that pre-season friendly. I think someone ran onto the park and tried to have a square go with Alan Ball ...

    Brilliant photo. Brings back memoriies. When it rained we headed across to the cover.

    ***** The Official Beasts v Rangers Match Thread*****

    Apart from St Mirren at home, we've had a fairly challenging set of fixtures domestically and in Europe since July, bearing in mind that it's virtually a new team since last season. Opportunity now to regroup, integrate all the squad additions, and then go on a real winning run.

    ***** The Official Beasts v Rangers Match Thread*****

    This is the frustrating thing - we've seen how they can be beaten if pressured in midfield and if you have a real go at that shaky defence. Yet we persistently sit off them and only hit their defence late in the game. We allowed them to become confident on the ball, yet again ...

    Very lucky to be level. No way are we getting away with a point her unless there's a big change in approach.

    Very poor so far. Playing their game.

    Big Rusty released by Norwich

    Martin and Hodson in the same squad - two of the most limited footballers I 've seen play for us.

    Ryan Jack called up to Scotland squad

    My heart sinks every time I read that one of our players has been called up for that mob. Injury risks plus the possibility of jeering and abuse from the Nat hordes.
  16. We'll need another striker to cover Morelos's suspensions.

    *** The Official FC UFA vs Rangers FC Match Thread ***

    Full credit to Gerrard for getting us through to the Group stages. Tremendous early achievement for the boss and his squad.

    *** The Official FC UFA vs Rangers FC Match Thread ***

    I don't want him dropped. I want him sold in January unless he has turned into a goal machine who manages to stay on the pitch, rather than a guy who misses sitters in key games and allows himself to be wound up to the point where he attracts cards like flies to shit.

    *** The Official FC UFA vs Rangers FC Match Thread ***

    Too late to sell him now. We're stuck with the stupid bastard until January.

    *** The Official FC UFA vs Rangers FC Match Thread ***

    This season is going to be tough enough without the possibility that we'll have to play games with 10 men on a regular basis and lose our 'star striker' to suspensions. There's a difference between passion and commitment on the one hand, and sheer stupidity on the other. Morelos is undoubtedly stupid.

    *** The Official FC UFA vs Rangers FC Match Thread ***

    Got that wrong - he's actually a fucking liability.
  22. Trooblue

    *** The Official FC UFA vs Rangers FC Match Thread ***

    Much more likely that he'll miss at least one sitter and allow himself to be wound up by their defenders. This guy has had his chance. Sell him at the earliest opportunity. A luxury we can't afford.
  23. Trooblue

    *** The Official FC UFA vs Rangers FC Match Thread ***

    The only way this gets sorted is if we get a decent fee for that liability and bring in a striker who knows how to behave on the pitch.
  24. Trooblue

    *** The Official FC UFA vs Rangers FC Match Thread ***

    This guy costs us, big time. Total liability.
  25. It's the same old story - playing against us is the cup final for these wee teams, and the sooner each and every one of our players realise that and react accordingly, the better.
