  1. Tactics is not a subject that gets normal fans going mental about ..... or something that stirs the fans imagination generally. It is important for players and managers especially ... to be able to change a game ... when to attack / when to defend. But the most important aspect is the quality of the player and his ability to take onboard the instructions then produce the desired effect the tactical plan means to achieve. One can't work without the other. This article is fair enough .... but what I want is a winning side on the park ... if the players are not capable then all the tactical nous the manager has will be of no value ... and it won't protect him from criticism from fans such as ours who demand... quite rightly .... that we win every game we play ..... tactics are important ... but winning is mandatory .... especially at our Club. Personally I don't give a toss what some "sports journalist" thinks about our manager and only care that our manager has the ability to motivate the team to succeed ... and that is more down to his ability to do this and get the desired results than his tactical competency ... as said above ... one can't work without the other. Pedro's a big boy and doesn't need any help from the press .... who the next day will flay him alive just to get their headline.
  2. Too early for a poll on this subject .... PC needs a chance to see what he can do to improve our situation .... so not so easy to vote yes or no.
  3. Much better .... give them nothing ..... but Waghorn? .....
  4. Nail on the head with your post Sweetheart .... It's been said more than once on this forum even SAF and other top managers would find it extremely difficult to get much more out of this squad .... their limit has been found out since last year's SCF and has not improved much since then .... PC needs a fresh start to change the situation and raise the standards bar as you say. I hope he gets the funds to do so in the summer window.
  5. How to play football 1. A football team is like a piano. You need eight men to carry it and three who can play the damn thing. 2. Football is a simple game based on the giving and taking of passes, of controlling the ball and of making yourself available to receive a pass. It is terribly simple. 3. The trouble with referees is that they know the rules, but they don’t know the game. 4. If you’ve got three Scots in your side, you’ve got a chance of winning something. If you’ve got any more, you’re in trouble. 5. If a player is not interfering with play or seeking to gain an advantage, then he should be. 6. At a football club, there’s a holy trinity: the players, the manager and the supporters. Directors don’t come into it. They are only there to sign the cheques. Winning mentality 7. If you are first you are first. If you are second you are nothing. All the above are quotes from Bill Shankly ..... #'s 2,5&7 are highlighted for the purpose of this thread. Sometimes the old ones are the best .... and don't need to be dressed up too much to get the message across.
  6. That's an actual photograph of Martyn's shooting coach mate ..... he looks fine to me also .... can't understand Waggy's problem really .....
  7. I wish I could give this post more than one like mate ..... It explains it nicely and this squad do have a lot to prove. Your last sentence says it all for me concerning this group of players ..... How many managers are we going to have classed as not Rangers quality before this situation is resolved. All the encouragement from the coaching crew means nothing if the squad are not following the plans laid out for them and they all start pulling together in the same direction. I keep saying that I will not be too hard on PC due to the squad he has inherited and I am trying to adhere to that maxim .... even though I have only just surfaced since the brutal SF game and the disappointing result .... my exception would be to his team selection and the defensive set up he played ... I'll hold it at that . Hopefully Saturday's game does not repeat itself ... and that's as positive as I can get right now sadly.
  8. Hilarious Cushy .... Why waste brain cells .... when a picture just says it all ....
  9. Great minds and all that mate ....
  10. A Gauntlet rather than a guard of honour would be my preference .... so that we could all kick fuck out of them .... in a respectful sporting manner .... before the game starts and referees and linesmen get involved with silly rules. Niiiiiiiice ......
  11. Good post mate You can bet your bottom dollar that the approach will be totally different in the press and media down in England than it was up here for us mate. Agendas-Are-Us is probably being considered as the new media motto .... no doubt picked up from the late SPL ....
  12. I know mate ..... What was I thinking? .....
  13. ..... Or sold maybe? .....
  14. Glad KM got a new contract ..... he deserves it. Now to terminate a few who don't deserve to be at our Club ..... that's the next move I am waiting hopefully for ....
  15. ....... I think in this case a lot of people just don't like BM and exaggerate his lack of defensive abilities ... simple as that ... and that's fair enough. It's a team game and you can't realistically expect forwards to have the same attributes as defenders .... and vice versa.
  16. I also feel good about tomorrow and think we will win .... and meeting the sheep in the final will make the winning of the cup that bit better.
  17. ..... But 60 minute Mark no longer manages our team ..... We now have (Colt) .45 Pedro in the driving seat mate ...... this is not "a year ago" you know ..... As for "hit and hope" .... ach! please man ..... Big Nesbitt's goal in the CL was a hit and hope, but it still counted .... BM's was a delightful deliberate shot that had brilliant goal written all over it ... and even better being against them .... and by fuck it really counted by helping us into the SC final ..... so a bit of credit is due to Barrie for that one from you. No matter your opinion .... any goal against the scum no matter how it goes over the line is worth it's weight in gold ...hit ... hope .... fuck the pope ..... or otherwise.
  18. C'mon Scotty .... stop holding back .... say what you feel mate ....
  19. They are the epitome of all that is vile in the media .... the branch that operates up here most certainly are ... and hide behind the mask of neutrality they forever let slip. They are past masters of printing offensive content, then when called out .... print an apology of an apology ... with no real intention of it being an apology .... arse wipes to a man. This latest episode may not be as bad or as offensive as some they have released to print .... but it is in extreme bad taste and is certainly extremely offensive to his family and friends .... and I include the majority of the Rangers support who see him as a hero for us ... and therefore one of us ... so I would not be so quick to round on those amongst us who feel pissed off with what has happened in this instance mate ... we all see and feel things differently after all.
  20. Sad.. sad news ... condolences to his family and friends. 🇬🇧
  21. Straight to the heart of the matter mate .... very well said. All who participated and helped to make this event a success are well deserving of praise for putting aside their time to commemorate Lee Rigby .... who should be alive today but for the actions of a madman. Petty arguments around bruised egos deserves nothing but contempt.
  22. ..... At Tannadice ....
  23. Filth is a very good word for them .... after all the shite this club has covered up since it's inception by wilfred, to this day .... their history is one continual line of denial for their crimes against society. From bigotry to sympathy for the H*** to paedophilia ..... it has been denied and deflected in all directions other than theirs ..... filth is something you sweep up and dispose of .... this mob have got the sweeping down to a fine art .... but some filth just cannot be hidden or disposed of .... no matter how hard you try to "sweep" it away. Scum of the earth ......
