  1. Never has a truer word been spoken. However he is not as bad as he used to be. 10 years ago he sounded like a screaming ned after tanning a bottle of Mad Dog.
  2. Why don't you just use a VPN? Then you don't have to watch / find other streams? I've just moved back to Britain so I think i'll get rid of it, although I might keep it for the games I can't get up to. I honestly think the last time I used it was the Cup Semi.
  3. Just realised I still pay for this. Haven't watched / used it in about 3 months
  4. I've seen Pena play and he was good. That was nearly 4 years ago now though and he is meant to have taken a bit of a dive. Hopefully he can get back up to where he was, because he was one of the best midfielders in Mexico. Dalcio was pretty bad in the first game against Progres. The second game was the worst performance i've ever seen in a Rangers strip. Not hyperbole - it was that bad. He came on and was playing down the side where I was standing so I had a pretty good view. Couldn't control the ball, couldn't pass, tried tricks that never came off and in general ran around aimlessly. It was embarrassing. I can't even describe how mince he was and the worst of it was he didn't seem to give a stuff. He ended up just standing at right back for the last 5-10 mins of the game and Tav was playing wide right. I fear we have signed a donkey. I'm still optimistic for Candeias. Cardoso looks a good signing. On the whole I think the squad is better than last season but so far the manager just doesn't seem to be able to motivate the players or have any kind of coherent game plan that the players understand. Build up play is far too slow and despite what he keeps saying i'm not sure where the goals will come from.
  5. He had greater potential than Gareth Barry who has over 50. Better potential than Scott Parker, Jermaine Jenas etc who were all in and around the team at the same time.
  6. Has anyone received their ticket through the post yet?
  7. Yep. I'll stand by that even if people think i'm mental. In 06/07 he was absolutely class for a pretty rubbish Man City team - won his first and only England cap and then the Dabo incident occurred. He was sold to Newcastle and then he spent the second half of the season out due to a jail sentence after beating that guy up in Liverpool. It was all downhill from there. On his day a great player.
  8. Yeah, and I mean completely his own fault. He already had a rap sheet as long as my arm, plus had been sent home from Thailand, stubbed that cigarette in that kids eye etc then he assaulted Dabo. If he could have kept the lid on his temper he would have had a great career - and I think he knows it. There is an upper limit to being aggressive and for a international class player that limit is a Roy Keane, Graeme Souness level. He was well over that and not just on the park but off it too.
  9. Expectation should always be first. If you let standards slip then we may as well give up our title of 'World's Most Successful Club' to Celtic in advance because they will have it in the next few years. If the players can't live up to the expectations then they shouldn't be here in the first place.
  10. I think he had 5 chances and he was rubbish Having said that I rate him as a footballer in general. If he had stayed at Manchester City I think he would have gone on to captain them and he would probably have 2 Premier League titles in his pocket and 60+ caps for England. Instead he was sold to Newcastle as City were on the way up, which was his own fault. I don't think i've ever seen a more self-inflicted case of screwing up a top level career.
  11. He was shite in his 5 games here. Brown wiped the floor with him in the Old Firm game. And if he was still here he would be banned from playing at the moment.
  12. Expectation should be first. But I have a horrible feeling we will finish 3rd again. I think the way it will go is we will be massively off the pace until January, they will sack the manager and bring in someone Scottish. I have never felt so un-optimistic about a season ever. Before the Progres game I was thinking we could win the league.
  13. Yeah i'm pretty sure he often used to attend training in the latter parts of Walter Smith's first reign and definitely during Dick Advocaat's reign. Him and Advocaat got on really well.
  14. Did he not used to do this regularly in the 90s/00s?
  15. Souness had pedigree as a player and this is before 9 in a row, where we had finished 5th the previous season. We were rubbish and things could only get better. Advocaat had pedigree as a manager. This no mark has nothing to his name. "There is nothing to be shocked or alarmed – if the team was not producing or the team was not playing or giving the philosophy we want from them, then I would be worried." Well i'm worried because the philosophy doesn't seem to exist.
