  1. Voted no since unlikely to lead anywhere but we must get rid of Doncaster and McLennan. Whatever it takes. They are merely an extension of the board of celtic.
  2. When the SPL spend so much time defending their position in the media it is completely clear they are exposed and have broken the rules. If Doncaster and Maclennan are not removed this time we need to keep focus and apply pressure until they are removed. However we need better than Stewart Robertson.
  3. I should have been specific. Dave King, Douglas Park, the non-execs ( Alistair Johnstone, Julian Wolhardt, Graeme Park, Barry Scott, John Bennett) are directors on the Rangers International Football club board and do not take a salary. Stewart Robertson, Andrew Dickson and James Blair are directors on the Rangers football club board and do take a salary and should take a cut. Too many boards/directors at Rangers.
  4. The directors at Rangers do not take a salary. However from Stewart Robertson down the senior management are well paid. All of the well paid staff should take pay cuts during this time to allow the other lowly paid staff members to continue to be paid. The very well paid players should also contribute significantly by sacraficing salary. Using a government scheme to pay football club staff is sickening. The actions of the English Premier League and celtic show the level of greed that permeates through British football these days.
  5. That first season in 1977-78 when Davie Cooper was signed along with Bobby Russel and then Gordon Smith was a joy. He did take a few months to get fitter as a result of Jock Wallaces' training methods but even during this period there were signs of what a player he would become. My favourite match the 3-2 win at Ibrox against celtic coming from 2 goals down at half-time. Davie Cooper, Derek Johnstone, Gordon Smith and Bobby Russel were unplayable. It could have easily been 4, 5 or 6 goals in that second half. RIP Davie Cooper a true Rangers legend
  6. Thought Leverkusen were well organised and their finishing was excellent but a good team would give them problems at the back. Rangers were very poor and had the heart of a mouse. Surely Steven Gerrard has to see that midfield is not fit for purpose. Neither good enough in terms of protecting the defence or supporting forward moves. While defence and attack look nothing special if we could improve the midfield it might help both of these areas. If he sticks with this midfield next season he will be gone because we will struggle again.
  7. Agree with the above the only one I would not sell would be Morelos if he wants to stay. In a physically stronger Rangers team and with better support from midfield and up front he would be an even bigger handful .
  8. We need to sign a top class forward to play with Morelos. Much less focus on him and easier to suffer suspension or loss of form and less of an issue if we sell him. Relying on 1 main striker is a bad plan and apart from Defoe (his age is the issue) the other forwards/wingers have not been good enough.
  9. Steven Gerrard has 1 more year to deliver trophies. Success will come down to better recruitment, selling the weak players and those who do not want to be at Rangers, more ruthless management to avoid players turning up in games when they feel like it and demonstrating an ability to change tactics/make substitutions when required . Quite a list.
  10. Have voted No but he does need to improve the players he buys. He may have limited resources but he has not used what has been available well enough. He has to stop buying players and not playing them and when he does spend £7 M that player needs to be a success. Our defence and midfield are not good enough, and we need more than Morelos up front. His choice of Tavernier as captain has also proved to be a poor decision. Unless he wins the Scottish Cup this season he will only have 1 more season to win trophies.
  11. I would give Polster a try out in midfield to see if he can introduce some drive and tackling capability based on his contribution from right back during Taverniers absence. He could replace Davis, Jack, Arfield or Aribo who have not exactly been vital to the cause of late.
  12. Great video. Enjoyed that. Thanks very much for posting.
  13. Just a matter of time before Pedro leaves. Simply not good enough. Too many mistakes and has not made the best of his squad and Pena/Herrera are unforgivable errors in judgement. What about trying to recruit Nigel Clough from Burton ? Has done a solid job in trying circumstances with little budget.
