  1. It's kinda the point in a discussion forum? Fine to have differing opinions discussed, the problem is, the performance last night has put serious question marks against the players before sunday, people calling that aren't bringing spirits down - the players haven't shown us enough to have high spirits going into this game imo
  2. last season a couple of bad performances at this time of year effectively killed our season, we could have got out the uefa group stages and didn't we fell away in the league etc - it's perfectly reasonable to question the character of a team who throw away a two goal lead (which would have put us top of the league) and get outfought by a shite aberdeen side on the eve of the biggest game for seasons!
  3. Depressing stuff, do we get a refund on the tickets if uefa close the ground? Not sure why it's so difficult to understand what you can and can't sing without getting the club into trouble.
  4. There's a tannoy announcement to every fan in attendance at every home game about follow with pride - how much more reminding do folk need? It's pretty easy to not be a cunt most of the time outside the ground.... https://Rangers.co.uk/fans/following-Rangers/acceptable-conduct/
  5. Did you think the killie game showed a different approach to the many occasions we dropped points last season? I'm not talking about in games against poor opposition or friendlies, I'm talking about games where we have good, well drilled teams sitting in - like most games where we dropped points in the last couple of seasons. We need a perceived threat from outside the box so that opposition teams have to work hard to come out and stop shots, at the moment a lot of teams are happy to let us have the ball up until 25 yards then they start defending with everyone behind the ball because we telegraph how we are going to try and attack and move the ball slowly, looking for short intricate passes to shoot from a few yards out from a cut back...
  6. So you dont think it was very clear in the game against killie that we couldn't draw a team out because we dont have a goal threat outside of the box? The killie game showed the same issue we suffered all last season and the season before, it just so happened that they were the best team defensively we've come up against so far and we offered nothing different to the problems which plagued us previously. We are more likely to play teams like killie most weeks than st Joseph's or progres... If you dont believe it's a problem in our team I think you're watching different games to me, maybe I'll be proved wrong by the end of the season but at the moment it looks very much like we will run out of ideas quickly against half decent defences
  7. Shite teams tho, if we could play that standard every week it wouldn't be an issue, it seems you are deliberately missing the point...
  8. We lack a genuine goal threat from outside the box, the goals you are talking are technically outside the box but they are not the type of opportunities that you get in tight games with defences sitting right back...
  9. yeah, hard to know whether it's the way they are asked to play, or it's just the way that suits their abilities... Thing is Gerrard was the absolute epitome of what we need, goal threat from anywhere and opposition players always scampering to get in front of him anywhere over the halfway!
  10. But they're not guys who get the head up and look to have a crack first, their first move is to look to see where a short pass can go, the opposition aren't scared to let them have a ping most of the time, they won't be thinking, we need to stop that ojo getting the ball 25-30 yards out
  11. This has been a bugbear for a few seasons now, we don't have a midfielder who has good shooting ability from outside the box. It lets team sit in against us all the time because they know we struggle to score from outside the box and has been obvious for a number of seasons - our build up is always pretty deliberate and when the opposition have 9/10 players sitting deep we really struggle, a goal threat from distance would draw teams out and leave gaps to play around. I had some hopes fro ojo and aribo but they don't seem convincing from distance either, jack, davis, kamara rarely trouble a keeper from distance. It's going to cost us points again this season, there's little indication that we've got any new tools to break down teams not playing to win games
  12. I don't think he's as bad as some make out - the biggest help our back line can have is to play together more, I think we make far too many changes in the back four - dropping players in and out doesn't work for centre half partnerships
  13. Aye, thanks very much for that, great view of the action! Hope the wee man enjoyed it
  14. In the first phase he's out of position and not keeping the back line compact then he has to try and make up the yards to get into position, so his momentum is towards goal, then he's no where near any attacker when the shot is driven in
