  1. NEIL LENNON WONT WIN NINE IN A ROW, NINE IN A ROW! Get it right up them. Re-set let’s go (again) Get it right up them, the only silver lining to this shite
  2. I didn’t say I believe it but I’ve heard it from a usually reliable source it’s an option being looked at. sadly for us they still win it here in that case
  3. Rumours that the EPL will cancel the season and use the xG model to forecast the remaining games. In which case Man City win the league.
  4. Everton players self isolating now but yet we plough on. No leadership in this country at all.
  5. I think he has to be given another season as a minimum. I’d like to think the people around him who he puts his trust in will help him see that being stubborn and relentless as a manager is not the same quality as it is in a player. Man management needs to improve too but it’s hard to have that perfected in your late 30s.
  6. Do we have to buy our seats before tomorrow? I don't remember receiving an email this time.
  7. Most of them are his players and Tavernier will never lift a major trophy as Rangers captain. I’ve said it before on here and I’m saying it again. Don’t give a fuck who gets upset with this, there are many other better managers in this league in terms of tactics. If we’re keeping him which really we have to financially he better got shot of his backroom team and get on the phone to Tommy Wright and persuade him to come in as his No2
  8. Nonsense. Warnock gave Taraabt all sorts of benefits of the doubt. If you’re a man manager you manage the characters. Warnock is used as an example only. Could also be Cantona with Ferguson, Dalglish with Suarez and countless others. To drop your only suitable striking option in your most crucial game of the season is inexperience at its finest
  9. Have a listen to Carraghers podcast with Michael Owen. They agree Carragher would struggle as a manager due to his inability to tolerate people less committed. They put Gerrard in the same category. For me you play Morelos tonight then you fine him all the win bonus and probably a weeks wages on top for turning up late. This is not hindsight I said this to anyone who was in earshot of me before kick off.
  10. Totally agree. This version of the 4-3-3 we are playing (4-3-2-1) I have hardly seen used successfully by any team other than the AC Milan set up under Ancelotti. it seems to be a recent academy style system that works very well if you have incredibly athletic full backs that will bomb on all match for you and 2 very creative number 10s. In my opinion we are using it to make best use of Tavernier and Barisic and that’s why it seems futile to use it 100% of the time particularly when one of them is not playing. (It failed badly with Flanagan). This in my opinion is why we have struggled post break when a lot of the time one or the other has been key fullback has been missing or not fully fit. It’s also why it works better with Aribo at left back than Halliday for example. It is also a very vulnerable system for teams to split the centre half’s when playing against teams who can counter attack quickly (see Sunday and many other recent games as examples of this). Disclaimer* I’m aware this is very keyboard tactician but I have worked in football albeit it at a much lower level and have seen this system tried and failed many times with academy teams in particular who don’t have the players to make it work. Plan B needed.

    He’s trying too hard at the moment and needs a spell on the bench. Probably due to the teams situation and him losing momentum from the break and the suspension. He will get it back again once the pressure is taken off him for a week or two.

    Kamberi Signs

    I too wasn’t every overly taken with him at Hibs but he looks intelligent in his movement and we’ve been crying out for someone who understands that a low dangerous cross into the box is a better idea than ballooning ball after ball into cart horse SPL defenders who swallow them up for fun. Really impressed so far he looks sharp and hungry.
  13. To be fair to him every member of our support that I know of was waiting for the Kent deal to be announced. It has been like watching a different player for much of this season. £7m was always going to be a gamble on any single player for us at this moment in time.
  14. It would be lunacy for Gerrard not to be given another season. We can’t afford to get rid of him now and start another rebuild nor would I want to. It’s easy to sit with hind sight and say he shouldn’t have changed it when we were 1-2 but probably wasn’t the best idea when we seemed to be in control. Personally I would have liked to see him start the game with the 2nd half line up or at least Kamberi up top as the 9 as he seems to be the sharpest and most in form of our forward players. Strange he doesn’t see it as the majority of the fans do.
  15. Still on two, Livi away cup and Motherwell away December. Felt I’d be a certainty for this, seems not. Can’t say I’ll bother next year. Rotten
