  1. A good interview, big Wes comes over as a likeable guy. I think it is a bit naieve of him to think that by playing the Warburton philosphy week in week out in the SPL would work the same way as it had done. We were already starting to get found out a bit in the last month or so of the Champ season so Barton was probably correct, the soft centre of our squad just didn't enjoy the way he went about it rightly or wrongly. It was very clear Gerrard didn't fancy him from the off but fair play to Wes as he has stuck in and got himself back as the No2 and in to some cup games. As above, leaves with my best wishes.
  2. Gazza on itv4 just now England v Spain euro 96. What a player - privileged to have him at that time
  3. We’re supporters when it suits them and customers the rest of the time. What other businesses would get away with not even mentioning the fact we haven’t had a good chunk of what we paid for and ‘great news it’ll be the same price’ for something else you’re not going to get. if we are truly supporters and not customers we should be getting shares or similar for our support, even if those shares are donated to a fans group(s) to be held in trust.
  4. Santiago Wanderers green strips were inspired by the Irish FA, one to avoid. Joking apart they have a British history in their origins too.
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. Everton players self isolating now but yet we plough on. No leadership in this country at all.
  9. 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.
  10. Do we have to buy our seats before tomorrow? I don't remember receiving an email this time.
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
