    A pint with Novo

    Novo for what he was and what he cost was by far one of the best pound for pound signings this millenium. Legend may be a stretch but he is no doubt a club icon and has produced some of the most important goals in the clubs recent history. Some pretty important goals against celtic. His goals against hibs, Red Star, Falkirk, Panathanikos, the penalty against Fiorentina, as the article mentions, has given us more than what we paid. He had his moments and bad games aye but he turned up when we needed him.

    Perspective required

    It's definetely about balance for me today. Under the manager there has been significant progress in a short space of time. Qualification for the EL group stages is testament to that and though some may dismiss it is important for the club not just this season but going forward. However, the manager got it wrong today. Was it due to long trip or not who knows? It's not the first time he's got it wrong (second half at Motherwell). I think there are things to improve on like ball retention, defending set pieces, sitting in too deep and relying on the defence and gk to much (though we did spent roughly 7/8 million to improve there). I think all of these negatives are just part and parcel of having a new manager, a rookie manager, 11 new players and a pretty tough schedule. I dont think we should down play the 8 thursdays in a row. I do believe that if say we got knocked out against Osijek or Maribor we wouldn't have lost to Motherwell and wouldn't have set up like we did this afternoon. Not that playing in Russia should be used to excuse today either. Things for me still look positive, I've been saying it all week but I think the hard work for the manager and the team starts now. This is the bread and butter against the likes of Dundee, St Johnstone and Livingston. The fixture list looks good from now until the start of December. The toughest game being hibs away which may be moved if we beat Ayr. Until December is where we need to go on our 7-9 game winning run. If Gerrard can get the team to that level then I have no doubt we'll be a different force by the end of December when we face them again.

    We won the league that season

    Next Four Games

    For me there are 10 games up until December and the only fixture I worry (not as much as last season) is hibs away. A lot of winnable fixtures. It's time to crack down and go on a run.
  5. We need to use it to our advantage in December!

    Game was lost in midfield

    We weren't even in a midfield battle, we just gave them it. Poor stuff.

    We didn't even try to win the midfield today we just gave it up. Very negative tactics today and to be honest 1-0 flatters us. The substitions, the order and timing, baffled me today as well. Shite result, shite performance but the hard work starts now. Can't blame europe at home to Dundee or St Johnstone or Livingston. We need to go win some games now.
  8. Aye they might have to then put us at home first and celtic away first!
  9. I've worked it out that we'll get Villarreal (A) 20/9 Spartak (A) 4/10 Rapid (H) 25/10 Rapid (A) 8/11 Villarreal (H) 29/11 Spartak (H) 13/12 This would work along side celtic and us not being able to be play at home on the same night. We'd play Spartak away first because they can't play the final fixture at home due to weather. We'd swap our H and A fixture with Rapid because we wont play 3 aways then 3 homes. Rough guess though!
  10. I really wanted that group with Lazio, Marseille & Frankfurt. Though very happy with what we got and there is an opportunity to qualify. I'm glad we avoided trips to Kiev and Astana!

    Anderlecht - Sporting - Malmo & Rangers. Not the worst in terms of actually trying to qualify!
  12. Im still buzzing 2 and a half hours later. What a result, what a performance! That is a Rangers performance and everything we want our club to be. Thank you to the manager and his team for giving us our club back. We haven't won anything in terms of silver but we have our pride back and that is a start.
  13. Why is no cunt picking up that number 7?? He's causing all sorts of problems!!
  14. PAOK have just scored a lovely goal against Benfica!
  15. Mourinho needs to take a break for a year or so. He needs to go over his philosiphy and ideas and move him into the more modern game. He's still a fantastic manager but over the last few years he seems to be more worried about petty fueds with his own players than winning games. Apart from being tactically astute (not the case now, last night being an example) he used to be known for his man management and how players like Lampard and Terry would die for him. Neither exist anymore!
