    New partnership with Montreal Rangers

    Do you really think that having our first team play a couple of forgettable pre-season friendlies against local sides will have more of a lasting impact than getting hundreds of young “soccer” fans each year to put on our kit, train with our coaches, and learn to associate the sport itself with our club? I don’t.

    New partnership with Montreal Rangers

    Makes business sense. We roll out the Soccer Schools programmes into new territories and, while making a modest profit on those, increase brand awareness internationally. We’ll never really “feel” the impact of stuff like this but, if you don’t have it bubbling away in the background, the reputation of your club slowly diminishes and someone else capitalises on the opportunity.

    * The Generic Laugh at celtc Thread *

    Aye, think it’s Meadowbank. Think he was at Spartans when the guys I know played with him. Both thought he was a lunatic and a prick.

    Know a couple of guys who used to play with Aaron and, by all accounts, he’s even thicker than his moronic brother. Fuck knows why any paper would quote him as if it’s a story.
  5. I would be in favour of us doing this if the money was specifically used to create a fund which clubs could only draw on to lay and maintain grass pitches. I don't like the idea of helping any of these bitter diddy clubs out but, if it means reducing the risk of our top players being injured on artificial pitches, then it's basically a simple calculation. In other words, would I have us pay £50K per season to markedly reduce our risk of injury? Absolutely.

    Top by the end of November...?

    I’m amazed anyone would post something like this so shortly after the Livingston game. We’ve improved considerably recently but our league record makes it clear we’re a long way from looking at any game (esp. away) as points in the bank.

    Very open to us complimenting more experienced and/or international signings (like Goldson, Katic) with relatively cheap, local players who are right under our noses. A lot of them are destined to peak at 'backup' level but sometimes their potential is fully realised and you end up with a player like Robertson. I wouldn't mind us spending ~£350K on a player like Shankland for the same reason. They're not going to start for us in Europe but they're just the kind of players who might make the difference in a dreary week-night away game in the Scottish Cup.

    Stevie G " Every player is for sale"

    It’s a non-story that’ll catch inept journalists. The story here is “Rangers won’t be selling on the cheap anymore” not the self-evident fact “every player at every Scottish club has a price”.

    Agreed - love his effort levels. Something positive that came of the Caixinha shitshow.

    Sobering that. Amazing though, really, because we all watch a lot of football and (as far as I can tell) we all feel there's been a genuine improvement across the board. In fact, the European performances prove that beyond a doubt. There have been games (like the opener against Aberdeen) that we absolutely deserved to win (and would've dominated if it wasn't for bad refereeing) but now's the time the has to start consistently translating into points.

    Part of me still thinks we'd have been better off leaving Lafferty there to take points off of celtic and Hibs.

    Just had a look at the table again and we badly needed that. In fact, we can't really afford to drop too many points over the coming months, as we've got a decent haul of points to claw back. Very pleased with the last two results but we need to dramatically change our form away from home.

    More than a few people suggested it in the summer and I was pretty sceptical - we all remember how little players like Gow contributed - but now I wonder if a poacher like that's just what we need in cup/league away games in the latter half of the season.

    Better side won today and, given the season Hearts have had, I'll take that all day long. What a week for the famous.

    To be honest, I think there are games when it would benefit us to be able to play two up top. The fact that these two are pretty incompatible is worrying because Sadiq is obviously useless. I know it's not exactly a top-drawer option but I'd spend a few hundred grand to bring in Shankland in January just to have a poacher who can play in a top two.
