  1. He was charged by the FA over separately placed bets, over a number of years, that preceded his signing for us. If he was still with us he'd still be facing this ban, as it's rare for FAs to refuse to enforce suspensions placed by another.
  2. My main memory of Namouchi is selling him for £4 million on FM05 back in the day.
  3. I'd maybe chuck in a few defenders and midfielders to go along with Wes, Kenny and Dodoo, but I dunno about this whole 'starting eleven' stuff. Hasn't been working for us very well this season....
  4. Wouldn't surprise me if we bring in a few loan signings again. I'd rather we didn't, but he has contacts in Portugal, Spain, England and Germany, so I'd expect him to use them.
  5. Loves Rangers so much that he was openly saying he'd play for Celtic not long before we signed him, then wouldn't transfer his contract to allow us a transfer fee. I'd hate to see how he'd have acted if he didn't love Rangers.
  6. Good. He's stepped up big time again this season, when initially it was thought he'd be on the bench more often than not. Can't really afford to be binning one of the few guys who gets what playing for Rangers is all about. I think he's a good example for the younger players, both in the first team and U20s. I'd be starting with Miller & Dodoo on Saturday.
  7. Beasley did arrive with a track record of success in MLS, with PSV and with the USA, in fairness. The rest weren't proven winners at a high level, but they'd shown the sort of attitude Smith was looking for. Barton aside, it didn't look like we were attempting to recruit anyone with a winning mentality last summer, and I think that's the biggest issue we have. We do have a few players who are good enough, but there was no sense of 'winning is everything' filtered through from the management, nor many in the squad who had that about them.
  8. I think he's just trying to get find a formation that works with the players he has. He's brought Dodoo on at half time twice in a row though, so I think he now looks to him as someone that can make a difference. I thought his assist for Miller at Aberdeen was more impressive than his goal, and showed he's got more intelligence as a player than Waghorn and Garner combined. That's not saying much, granted, bud still.
  9. I think Pedro does see something in Dodoo, as even though he's being brought off the bench he's actually being given time to make an impact. He's also one of the few who aren't scared to get on the ball. He hasn't had much playing time, but I think he's improved a bit from the last semi-final, when he looked scared to get tackled. I think Waghorn and Garner are the ones who need to prove their worth.
  10. Brendan isn't as clever as he likes to think he is, nor is he Machiavellian. I could have believed the wee leprechaun O'Neill or Chesney doing that, but I don't credit Rodgers with that much intelligence. This is the same cunt who thought Rob Kiernan had the makings of a centre back, and was convinced he'd unearthed a future star for the Republic of Ireland upon finding out about Kiernan's ancestry ffs.
  11. These players don't get it. How many of them - Hill included - have ever won anything? To most of them, third place is decent as we were in the second tier last year, and, hey, they reached two semi-finals. I don't blame the younger players, as the rot came from the previous manager and his attitude, but you look to your experienced players to set an example. And I don't see Clint Hill as an example of someone who has the mentality of a Rangers player. Hard working, honest pro? Sure. Genuinely happy to be at Ibrox and wants to stay? Sure. A leader who can get across the importance of winning and what those games mean? No. We shouldn't expect him to either, as nothing about his career trajectory suggests he understands himself. He's not in the same bracket as Weir and Ehiogu were in terms of signings. They were past their best when they arrive, but they'd played at the highest levels and knew what it took to win. They were leaders who hated losing. They are what we have been lacking in defence all season - including when Hill plays. Barton was a gamble, but I still think it was worth taking as he had the attitude we were looking for. I don't think he's blameless in regards to his exit - and he's not as good a player as he seems to think - but he gets it, at least.
  12. Could have bought her a full replica strip. Women love replica strips.
  13. Winning the John Greig award means nothing this season. Are you honestly suggesting him winning that award is evidence he's a good player for us? None of our defence are worthy of plaudits. Commitment is the very least we should expect of all players - we should also expect our centre backs not to be outrun by Kris Boyd. Hill doesn't have the intelligence or skill to make up for his lack of pace and age - he was never a top level player. Clint Hill never was Rangers class, and the fact he was signed and has played on a regular basis is a damning indictment of our recruitment policy. If Harry stays on at Birmingham and wants to take him down there, good luck to him. We should see if he wants two-for-one with Niko thrown in too.
  14. I'm not a King defender. I don't ever want us to be in the hands of someone like Murray again, but that doesn't mean I'm happy for us to continue with the way things are going. It's beyond obvious that King doesn't have the money and doesn't want to admit it for fear of provoking the season ticket holders. King and T3B have also left the club open to attempts at a hostile takeover, so if he really did have the money he'd have made an offer on those shares.
  15. Fair point - younger-than-he-is-now Clint was pish in the Premier League. But when he was in his prime he wasn't anything special either. He was a decent defender and hard worker - there's nothing about Clint Hill that makes him the sort of player we should ever have been signing. Then I hope they take him back. Fucking take him right now.
