  1. I think it was something to do with going in 3-2 up, 2-1 down or 2-2 and they’d have come out with a rocket up their arse. Being 3-2 I’d have wanted a rocket up their arse anyway as Motherwell are horrid and we just let play how they wanted to second half, it was undoubtedly the worst half under Gerrard so far and I really hope he has said to the press it was two goals from set pieces but given the players a dressing down over the effort second half. That said we’ve had a lot of games and the weather would have made heavier legs than usual so I’m prepared to cut them a bit of slack but they have to do something we failed to do under Warburton.....learn from it and cut it out of our game going forward.

    Easy Win For Reserves

    I jest comparing him to Dalcio but it kinda has that feel to it, really hope I’m wrong. With lafferty in now and scoring two on his first start (this time) I’m struggling to see how he’ll get game time but it’s a long season so a few run outs and goals for the reserves will help a lot.

    Don’t you mean The Sadiq?
  4. Massive game both financially but also for setting things right and get the momentum back for Sunday. Back to 433 with candeias and Kent starting. Hopefully we can start with jack, Coulibaly and Arfield to let Arfield get further forward but suspect it’s too soon for Coulibaly to start so most likely ejaria. We need to be on the front foot from the first whistle and put the tie to bed. Sunday’s second half has to be a lesson in why not to sit back against teams.
  5. Absolutely this. Had we beaten Ufa comfortably I'm sure we'd have bought another couple of permanent players, so if we get through I expect we'll see players come in as we absolutely need quality and depth to challenge for the title and put up a fight in Europe. There is little to no money in the Europa League Qualifiers therefore getting this far and not getting to the groups will not do us much good. Get the group stage bagged then use that money to push for the title and to get a chance at getting Champions League money.

    Playacting Last Night

    Last night Ufa knew what they were doing disrupting the flow of the game and trying to get us into bother which was frustrating as hell (McGregor did the same to Maribor in the second leg) but I had mixed emotions of frustration/anger and amusement at the end of the game when their player went down "injured" where he couldn't even decide where to pretend the injury was (started at lower leg, then back of the knee then the hamstring ) Then the cunt makes the quickest recovery ever and tries to pick a fight with Goldson

    U18s win against the spoon burners

    Hopefully we can whitewash them at every age level this year fucking scum
  8. True, not much point in beating that lot next Sunday if we drop points this weekend but we have to be mindful of keeping players fresh and Morelos always puts in a hell of a shift (played the full 90 last night). If Morelos starts he will undoubtedly get subbed at the 60 minute mark I'd imagine (if the ref hasn't sent him off before then!). Out of interest (not being wide here) would you just play the strongest team on Sunday, again on Thursday and again on the Sunday? I believe rotation is essential with this many games coming thick and fast and Gerrard made clear today he does too but not to the extent of wholesale changes. I just think with Morelos getting 90 mins last night he may start on the bench.
  9. If he gets sent off he misses the match on the 2nd right? For me thats a big risk and I'd rather have him for that game than this one.

    Welcome to Rangers Kyle Lafferty

    A hat-trick against the scum might go some distance towards it. Look the past has happened and no one has the ability to change the past. He said he regrets it and wants to make amends to "redeem himself and put things right". It's what he does now that matters and I know many will back him like he never left while others still can't stand him but he's still our player now and if he is backed and doing well then the team stands a better chance of doing well. Now that doesn't mean he should have been given a standing ovation and a song belted out straight away, thats the one part I didn't agree with. Applaud him for good play, cheer when he scores and over time he can work himself back into our good books with good performances, goals and assists. However, there is no point on dwelling on what happened. He can't change it and we can't change it. Much in the same way the manager has decided to buy him and put his trust in him to deliver the goods and we can't change that either. I'm trying to view him with a clean slate, not swayed by the past nor swept away in euphoria of his return (which I really can't understand.....fine be happy we've signed a player you reckon will do well but FFS its not Aguero we've fucking signed!). I'll judge him on his performances from now.
  11. Horrid nickname however the gaffer has called him that if I remember rightly
  12. I can see Halliday coming in for Arfield or Ejaria. Barisic will certainly come in for Flanagan. Candeias and Kent will probably start so we might see Lafferty get a start and Morelos rested as much as I hate to say it (also its been called out that Motherwell will try to get him sent off for sure). Bring him on later in the game, start him against Ufa and then sub him once the job is done to keep him fresh for the scum game. I'd love to see Middleton start but this lot will just boot him about so would prefer to leave him to be an impact sub.

    Wallace

    If we are going to play any full back as a winger it will be Barisic. Wallace is 3rd choice left back and will be sold if an offer comes in.

    Creativity/attacking quality

    It’s not doom and gloom from most. I think you have to be able to see the good and bad from a game to learn what to keep doing and what to improve on and I can tell from Gerrards post match interview he wasn’t pleased with the performance overall and that’s good because it means we don’t just settle for a 1-0 win at home in Europe we look to see what we could do better.

    Creativity/attacking quality

    Kent is getting better, his effort when he cut In was not that far off the mark. Candeias lacks the ability to beat the fullback but his work rate is superb. I think Middleton has one move but he does it very well. The trouble we had tonight wad they crowded the box and got a number of blocks or deflections from crosses and cutbacks. I don’t think a better quality winger would have helped that much tonight. I think a central midfielder who has the ability to beat a man and play the cutting passes is what we need (as well as Arfield getting some space to shoot as he has a decent shot on him). Ejaria impressed tonight more than his other performances but I don’t see him being that creative midfielder.

    I don’t think they were well organised, not in the same category as Osijek anyway. Countless times I watched their positioning and shape and it wasn’t good, if we got the ball across from one side to the other quicker we’d have been in behind them so often.

    Welcome to Rangers Kyle Lafferty

    I’m not one that’s been incredibly vocal on him coming back on either front but I agree the song was not ok in my books. He has to prove himself and he had some decent touches on the ball, held off their players and was a little unlucky with his cross from the right. He’s got a lot of work to do to get anywhere near redemption.

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

    Mate they were not good at all, if the ref and linesmen weren’t completely incompetent and we were a bit more clinical we’d have been out of sight. They were blowing out their arses at 70 mins and can’t even rake throw-ins FFS. Happy that there are no away goals but tonight was an opportunity missed.

    I think the Russians have tried to knobble the referee

    You ought to be careful you’ll get offered a job as a ref

    I think the Russians have tried to knobble the referee

    And 5 mins later their sins first action was to take out Middleton with no attempt to get the ball and got away with it. Lafferty’s Foul looked bad but he watched the ball the whole time. Referee should get transferred to Scottish football he’d fit right in here.....utter shite, inconsistent, probably never seen the rule book.

    I think the Russians have tried to knobble the referee

    All I can say is if we are still unbeaten, still never been behind, still on course for the group stages in spite of such shite referees in numerous games then we really are onto something good on the park.

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

    Lafferty booked for first foul when he came on when he tried to win the ball. Their player just takes out Middleton and gets away with nothing. Shocking refereeing again
