  1. Kenny

    Usually agree with your posts so assuming you are taking the p*ss.

    Shite is green.

    I watched the U21 Scotland v England game a few weeks ago. England clearly the better side and generally acknowledged as the best in the world at that age group. Lewis Morgan was an absolute stand-out on the left wing for Scotland and arguably MOM. I hear Warburton is keen on taking him to Nottingham. We definitely should be getting this lad signed up, IMO. He is already good enough to solve our left wing problem and could be worth a great deal in the not too distant future.

    I hope we are more ambitious than going for McInnes. And I certainly don't see a 1.5M 'donation' to the sheep's coffers as a tempting means of bringing him to Ibrox. Weaken your enemies - don't strengthen them. They would replace McInnes with ease with that level of extra funding. Let's use the criteria the RO has set out here as the measuring stick for managerial candidates. I doubt DM will be anywhere near the best we can get.
  6. Next Manager Poll

    Not sure if anyone else has suggested this and don't have time (OK - can't be arsed) reading through 6 pages to check - but my recommendation would be to go for Guus Hiddink. Definitely worth an enquiry from the club, IMO. One of the best managers I've ever seen and the Australian national side rumoured to be chasing him as the current coach is looking as stable as the unfortunate Pedro over the last few weeks.
  7. Football is fucked

    The television payments - and the conglomerates behind them - have stolen the game from the fans who follow their team because they were brought up to follow. The big money goes to fewer and fewer who are followed by more and more who have less and less reason to do so. All we can do is pass on our love for our team to our kids and hope one day the conglomerates will choke on their own greed and football will belong to the people again.

    Sadly TV is clear - not offside.

    In general I like Cardoso, but the first goal, he knocked the ball through McCrorie's legs with no time for McCrorie to react. The second goal Cardoso should have called out the thumb's run to McCrorie. You can see the young lad questioning Cardoso straight after. McCrorie was excellent today.
  10. Miller dropped / rested for Thistle

    Just checked the latest news (I'm Australia based - so get to things at different times) and nearly punched a hole in the ceiling when I saw KM is being "rested" for the League Cup game. Yeehaa!! I've said this in various threads before: Kenny needs to be out of our team, particularly as a starter. I watched him giving "directions" to Morelos in the Thistle game at the weekend straight after he'd turned the ball over with yet another trampoline touch. Morelos must think he's a plonker. I watched him get under the feet of both Dorrans and Jack several times, because he's bumbling about in the wrong part of the park. Dorrans and Jack must think he's a plonker. I do. Why does Pedro keep playing him?? I know he has scored a few crucial goals for us over the last couple of seasons - but he's very often the reason why they're crucial! As I've previously said - I respect KM's professionalism in keeping his ageing body in good shape. But he is no longer good enough to be starting for us, and I doubt whether he has much future as a substitute. And no, I've never been a great fan of his. And yes, if you play for them, I don't believe you're truly one of us.
  11. The taig game.

    The key to us getting the result we want in this is to have one more player in the midfield. The most important thing about this concept is that player is not Kenny Miller. Despite all the negative stuff I've been reading on here - our defence is a lot better than last season and we have a genuine goal scorer in Morelos. The scum defence is very, very shaky under pressure. Break even in the midfield and we can win this.
  12. The taig game.

    You're daft.
  13. I hope so much I'm wrong but Miller and Niko starting spells points dropped....
  14. KM must have some compromising pics of Pedro.
  15. Hardie on was great. But for Dorrans??? Miller surely had to be the one to depart. Unbelievable - and so costly.
