  1. Nearly that for me too, Kamara has been a little off his best. Only questions for me are Ojo who apparently wasn't great against Blackburn, I could see Jones or Stewart being close to getting in there. I think Edmundson has made a good impression and Katic has played all summer so could see that swap too. McGregor Tav. Goldson. Edmundson. Barisic Aribo Jack Davis Ojo. Arfield Morelos

    The pitch

    It would only need to be perceived to be unsafe and the board would agree to the change surely. And why would other clubs object, the season hasn't even started so there's no disadvantage to any of them. It will get altered if we ask in my opinion.
  3. I think it's the frustration of the situation. McGinn has gone from 2.5m to 40m in one season. Maddison similar. Tierney could have 10 solid games at Arsenal and they'd double his price. Van dyke was doing what he always has at Southampton and moved for £75m. The market has gone mental but we have a ceiling price in this league. We saw what happened with Waghorn who was a decent player but never worth £5-7m. We got 500k for him. Look at that bang average Newcastle midfielder with 9 league matches behind him and a bad knee. He was just one of the crowd on loan at Killie. Nothing special. £50 fucking million for Longstaff.

    Well that's embarrassing. Common sense should prevail and the SFA board allow a minor alteration for player safety if we seek to make the change

    The pitch

    I'll predict now that we will move the touchline in marginally which will be cheaper than extending the grass area. By our first home league tie that touchline won't be aside the astro it will have been quietly shifted a few inches assuming the rules allow and we haven't already had to register the pitch dimensions.

    The pitch

    It's blatantly obvious that running on two surfaces at once with different densities, levels of grip, impact on the joints etc is not something a professional athlete would choose to do.

    The pitch

    If Stevie G told the players they had all to do shuttle sprints up and down the pitch as a warm up do you think one single player would choose to run on that line? Not a fucking chance and it's blatantly obvious why. It's so obvious I don't think we are even having an honest debate here. I think you are just enjoying taking the counter position.

    The technical area ends safely before the pitch, I'm not arguing against astro on the sidelines it's the proximity. I've never seen astro against the line of the playing surface before

    The pitch

    Are you stubbornly sticking to your point here or do you really mean that. Come on man, who are you kidding. Nobody with any sense would design it the way it is right now. Just because it's a Rangers fuck up doesn't mean it isn't a fuck up. A player would rather run on slightly worn grass than one foot on grass one on astro at the same time

    Which makes a difference. I'm sure you'll have played football enough to know that while the ball is in play along the touchline a player might have a foot over or on the line and be running at full pelt. Those few inches of grass mean the player isn't changing surface. And there appears to be a height difference or a gap in the join at that part of the pitch exacerbating the issue. It certainly doesn't look seemless

    We aren't five years down the line, that's your assessment. We are 2 games down the line. It's never been white line then astro with nothing between
  12. trueblueal

    The pitch

    Yes, there's no room now to put a foot off the pitch in regular play which happens frequently. It's so close and at different heights that a full back or winger will be wary. I'd be interested to know what Tav or Borna thought of running down that line vs having 6 inches of grass as a buffer. If you stand on the line the outside edge of your foot is lower than the inside edge. Do that often enough and you will turn your ankle

    The pitch

    The astro isn't a distance away. It's literally attached to the outer edge of the playing area. There is no distance. That's the issue.
  14. trueblueal

    The pitch

    No because that's the surface the game is played on for 90 mins. Much as you are denying it we'd be made to look like amateurs if a high profile player done an ankle on that in competition and everyone was aware of the issue on the friendly. It's just too close. You only need working eyes in your head to see it's an issue

    The pitch

    Those things are all obvious and a distance away. When a player is making natural movements in a game as he runs up the wing or stops abruptly to keep a ball in play he's not stepping on those things. He can brace himself and try to slow down as he leaves the pitch. That join is literally on the line.
