  1. The Pedro Caixinha Thread

    Pedro C- For me the manner in which he ran the team last season suggested that he was not the man for the job. Those end of season results were diabolical. The excuse was that he had nothing to lose (those records were not considered significant) and he was using the time to assess the players. So the results were shit and so the conclusion was the players were shit (even though the results achieved by the same players had been better before he arrived). So the players are told they are crap, it's all very public, their value plummets, and they go for peanuts to other Clubs that cannot believe their luck- at these other Clubs they begin to perform better than they had under Pedro. Meanwhile we get pumped out of Europe in the most embarrassing way possible but then win a couple of friendlies and all appears Rosie again. A slow start in the league but Pedro then does a course with Mourinho and is able to bask and absorb his glory. We have had some good games under Pedro C but we do not have any consistency. The guy is in my mind out of his depth and should never have been appointed. Yes we have won some games but with money spent- so we bloody should. But the Writing is on the Wall- this guy is not fit for purpose as Rangers Manager. Games like yesterday have to be won- especially against a 10 man team at the bottom of the league. I am not sure we can afford to get rid of Pedro C- but we sure as hell can only aspire to 2nd or 3rd place in the league with him at the helm.
  2. Photographic Proof

    Well done Pedro. It is very clear what he means, you would have to be stupid not to get it. Sutton also happens to be a complete dick of a man, who is trying to bully and mock. It's a cheap obnoxious trick. Pedro stands his ground admirably and makes Sutton and his gang of clowns look like the complete cowardly pricks they have just proved themselves to be by allowing Sutton to continue.
  3. Season Gone After 3 League Games

    I genuinely admire your positivity. I too have spent the last few months trying to focus on the positives since Pedro C took over. But the writing is well and truly on the wall. We have a Manager who is totally out of his depth. We have a Manager who has overseen some of our worst performances in our History. 3 games into the Season and we are already 5 points behind St Johnstone and only just scraping into the top half of the table. After the Hibs game Pedro was more focused on the antics of the opposing Manager than the fact he was completely outmanoeuvred. Quite frankly the last week has been one of the most embarrassing weeks in my memory- even more so than the Luxembourg defeat- which is saying something. After yesterday's game Pedro is pleased opposing teams are "showing us more respect"! Really?. Is that respect based on the fact that we drew with Hearts rather than lost all 3 points. Football is not about respect, it's about performance and winning. So far Pedro C has had 2 good wins against strong opposition. The problem is that both those games were effectively meaningless friendllies. Gogzy, I have the greatest respect for your views, but in this case we need quick and effective action to get a proper Manager in quickly, otherwise I believe the season will be effectively over before September. At the end of the day the target this season is to challenge Celtic. Already we have Kranjcar saying we can afford to lose all 4 games against Celtic yet still mount a challenge (yes I get he is being manipulated by journalists who take advantage of the fact he is speaking in a 2nd Language), but if our players are already accepting 2nd best to Celtic, then we are likely to be second best to others. We need immediate action.
  4. That's it for me

    It's now a complete cluster. I have tried to support Pedro C despite not understanding the thinking behind his recruitment. I have given him the benefit of doubt and given consideration that to rebuild he had to suffer some initial collateral damage. But how many significant disasters do we need to suffer before we wake up and realise that this man is not equipped to do the job. The Celtic record defeat. The loss of the Aberdeen record. Kicked out of Europe by part timers from Europes smallest country. Hibs last week. Hearts this week. FFS we have not even played them yet and we are already mid table and they, Aberdeen and St Johnstone are cruising away in the points race. There is no more time. Yet another season effectively conceded before September. Mr King- rather than playing Golf at Loch Lomond, maybe you should start fulfilling your responsibilities. This guy has to go. We were beaten by Hibs and yes the ref made an arse of it. But that does not justify the victim card that Pedro C has played. Rather than our management criticising the oppositions manager (and reporting him to the police), they should instead be focusing on righting the wrongs that they have created. Under this regime we are doomed to another year of fighting to finish 3rd or 4th in a league we should comfortably be finishing in the top 2. It's a cluster Mr King- sort it out.
  5. TLB, "Fans statement laughable"

    Unfortunately we have fed the monster.
  6. Hearts match can't come soon enough

    We need to be more streetwise. What is frustrating is that it was Jack that managed to get himself sent of by allowing the provocation to get to him, rather than those new to Scottish Football. Any team playing us that is short of talent will try to provoke- our guys need to be ready for it, and ignore it. We need three points not amateur dramatics. Actually I think we have a good Team, but it needs time. More alarming for me is the fact that Pedro C appears to have let the pressure get to him (which is huge) and appeared to be playing the Victim card rather than recognising that he had been outmanoeuvred. But smash Hearts and we start to feel good again. What was not lacking on Saturday was a tremendous support for the Team. The guys wearing the shirts need to get their acts together or that support will start to quieten. Whar we cannot afford to do is- replace yet another Manager and ship out another bunch of players. We need Pedro C to be successful. The Celtic game will be immense, win that and I can forgive the Hibs defeat. That will be the true acid test of Pedro's abilities. Another result like last time and I fear it will be game over for Pedro- and then it's back to another Groundhog Day.
  7. 1. Kenny Miller has been the one person constantly delivering over the last few years. His goals have salvaged draws from defeats and won games that looked to be slipping away. For me Miller is the one signing McCoist got right. 2. Jack needs to be savvy in such matters. At the end of the day whether or not he merited the red card, he still got himself a red card, and even if it is rescinded we will never get those 3 points back. Our players need to be aware that our players do not get given any leeway in such matters these days- the rights and wrongs of such matters are an irrelevance when it comes to the points table. 3. We know that the press love nothing better than to endeavour to compromise Rangers personnel at ever opportunity. Either it is the question that is thrown when one is off guard, or indeed the answer is taken completely out of context. 4. On one hand I agree that Miller should have kept his views out of the media, yet his point is completely valid and needed to be made directly to Jack- and that message reinforced by Pedro C. 5. We lost an important game yesterday. Not just 3 points lost, but 3 points lost to Hibs, and a Hibs managed by Lennon. What makes it all the more frustrating is that the Red Card did change the game. Yes the referee was in my view a disgrace. But we need to not give these guys any opportunities to shoe a red card. It is now a time for cool heads and determined focus. We need to stick together, back the whole Team (including Miller and Jack) and the Manager- otherwise we are likely to end up with another Cluster on our hands this year. There are signs we are turning a corner- but we need to give these guys time to breath, and get their act together. Hibs are a team that has been 3 years in the making, we have a team that in reality has only really just been introduced. I still have doubts ref Pedro C, however we have to give a fair crack of the whip. Yesterday's card decision was a travesty. Let's try not throw away anymore points.
  8. *****The Official Motherwell vs Rangers Thread*****

    The Friendly's are over. Now it's for real. Time to deliver a performance that really counts- and to do that week in week out. Really looking forward to this game. We have the greatest support going- I fully expect to see a Team that shows it deserves that support. These guys can be Hero's.
  9. Caixinha deserves respect

    I have never understood Pedro C's appointment. His initial results and especially the manner in which we got dumped out of Europe only strengthened my complete dismay at his recruitment. However through it all, he has conducted himself with dignity and presented himself immaculately. He comes across as an excellent ambassador for the Club, despite the odd eccentricity, the occasional language/ translation confusion, and the ever present cheap shots from the gutter press who take every opportunity to take his words out of context and twist them into something else entirely- in fact I have come to like the guy as a Man if not as my ideal choice of Manager. But I have to say that the last few games have started to make me question my own doubts. I can see what he is trying to do, and why. Passion, Pride and indeed a little bit of arrogance are beginning to return to Ibrox. They have been missing far to long. It's his doing. Now passion and pride don't on their own win football matches- and that is what the Rangers Manager is required to do. But I look forward to Sunday's game with Motherwell without fear now, for I believe we finally have a team, that genuinely will fight to win. I can just about handle losing a game if all have given their all, and that has been another thing missing these last few years. So Pedro C does have my respect. Motherwell is a huge game for us. Pedro C has to win it, Motherwell don't - that in itself gives Motherwell an advantage. I hope we can support the Team enthusiastically to the final minute irrespective of how things are going, for what Pedro C and this Rangers Team right now require more than Respect right now is our Total Support and the opportunity/ time get the opportunity to get their act together.
  10. Pedro Caxinha: Stay or go?

    There have been clear signs of major improvement over the last few games. The last two games have been really uplifting. However the real test will be how this Team perform in games that are for League points or Cup games. For me the jury is still out on Pedro C, and will be to the last game of this new season. I am far more optimistic than I was a few weeks ago. I can now see where Pedro C is endeavouring to take his Team in terms of style and attitude- it is a refreshing sight. Yet for me, and especially given we have already suffered a very early and embarrassing exit from Europe, for Pedro C to be considered a success this coming season, we need to be comfortably in the top 2 of the League and win at least one Cup. We now have no European distractions, Pedro has been well funded and has made a number of key signings of players he wants, there can be no more excuses.
  11. Friendly v Sheff Wed 30th July at Hillsborough?

    This is beginning to look as if things are coming together. Well done all. Mr Pedro C, I take my proverbial hat off to you- excellent stuff.
  12. Pedro Post Watford interview

    You make a fair point. Yesterday's result was a positive. We have now won a game against a Premier League opposition. But from my perspective, more importantly we have now won a game with Pedro C's own team. Its the Winning mentality we need to get back- particularly amongst the players. I note Barry McKay spoke of the almost (in his view) unrealistic pressure from fans that was placed on the Team to win every game. This is why he is better at Nottingham rather than Rangers. A true Ranger feeds of that pressure rather than decries it. I can get what Pedro is trying to do. I still cannot understand his appointment, but he is our Manager and as such requires to be supported. Indeed he is not responsible for his appointment as Manager. I am looking forward to the Motherwell game with a lot more hope after last night. However for me one or two results is not going to allay my overall feelings that he is not up to the job. As I have stated in previous posts I will be as happy as any other fan man if and hopefully when he proves my misgivings wrong. In the meantime- my last comment is this- Well done Pedro C, you are under a huge amount of pressure and scrutiny- I wish you well and huge success with Rangers FC.
  13. Well done Pedro

    Today was certainly an improvement in that we did not lose the game and indeed there were positive signs of improvement. However we need to start winning meaningful games before start getting too carried away with a friendly draw.
  14. I am uncertain as to Pedro c's ability as a Manager. But this is a cheap stupid shot from McKay. He had hardly been stuck in a Gulag.and forced into hard labour. Instead he was paid as much money a month as many of his age would be lucky to earn in a couple of years. He was given a great opportunity but wanted more, yet failed to consistently deliver. His sense of entitlement and lack of courage demonstrates that whilst he may have abilities as a footballer, he is no Ranger.
  15. Is Pedro worse than Warburton?

    I do not want to see PC fail. My problem is that I can see nothing so far that would suggest he can succeed. when his name first cropped up, my initial thought was... Why him? What has he achieved? What does he bring to the party that makes him so special? Ok he is Portuguese (and so is Mourinho), yes he looks good in a suit with a Rangers tie, ok he has experience in South America. But he is not actually Mourinho, we are needing more than someone who looks good in a suit, and the closet Scottish Football gets to South American football is Cowdenbeath. But he is our Manager, and needs our support. I hope is successful, and proves people like me wrong. I just hope Dave King and the Board have a contingency plan in place in case things start going awry. I just cannot see how we can afford to replace him, and start yet another new beginning.
