    Gerrard and the away form

    Absolutely, and there’s no doubt SG will have said to them to take care/be wary of quick turns as the risk of injury is huge. It literally is a different ball game on those surfaces.

    *** Official Rangers V Accies (Away) Thread ***

    Don’t think we do plastic pitches unfortunately. The team always look like they never fancy it on them.

    Northern Ireland invoked the 5 Day ban for him playing for us mate. Nothing to do with SG.

    Club urged SFA not to help Rangers in 2008

    These two interviews with Peat just leave more questions than answers. I’m still waiting on a competent journalist asking him why, after he’s said ‘he saw no problem with extending the season to help Rangers’, that never happened. Why did it not happen, when everyone inside and outside football knew it was plain wrong to ask so much of one club to play so many games in such a short period of time? Maybe he was influenced after all... It was and is an utter shambles.

    Offside...?

    In the last 25 years+ of watching football, I honestly can’t remember a time like the past two seasons in which we’ve had so many outrageous decisions go against us. This season has been a joke already on that front and it’s barely started. I don’t buy into conspiracy theories, but it definitely feels like we’ve become a soft target for refs, without the fear of a WS and Advocaat to rip them a new one. It’s not helped either by the quality of our team having dropped compared to years ago, meaning these shocking decisions are having a greater, more negative effect. Frightening just how bad the refs have become though.

    Stevie Post Match Reaction

    To be fair, I think it's definitely a feature of virtually all of our games so far this season, which the likes of EL qualification or a 4-0 skelping today shouldn't disguise. That is we're giving the ball away way too often, too easily in every game and putting ourselves under needless pressure. Really glad to hear SG not paper over that fact because keeping better possession really needs to become a must, and fast. It's what made us fall into Motherwell's hands and drop points, not lay much of a glove on the scum and has been a big feature in Euro away games to some extent too. Nail that, and we'll be a serious team to come up against.

    ***** The Official Beasts v Rangers Match Thread*****

    Happy with the team, though the bench is a bit weak. Clearly has no faith in Sadiq whatsoever. Let’s fucking do this!

    Mate, we’d get destroyed with that team - our midfield would be totally overrun/ dominated by theirs. I reckon we definitely need 3 in the middle of the park for this game. Keeping possession for good spells is going to be key.

    ***** The Official Beasts v Rangers Match Thread*****

    Sure, cos he didn’t have any other centre backs at the time other than Goldson and Katic, the latter being someone I’m not sure he was certain would fit right in, right away. So he needed a 3rd quality option, likely with Katic being the one to drop out. But given he’s been unreal, the need for that 3rd top quality CB has lessened. Also, I reckon the fact Kent almost certainly has the same agreement in place to play, and that we’ve brought in Barisic, just paid £2m for Grezda and that there’s no chance Tav is getting dropped, then it all points to those 4. Throw in having Candeias, Middleton and Murphy, I simply don’t think you can/he would carry that number of wide players without 433, his system to date, being the preferred option. All opinions though mate ?

    ***** The Official Beasts v Rangers Match Thread*****

    Disagree, can’t see 352 being his preference at all in the future. Not going by his signings or the way he’s set up so far. Certain games, yes, definitely. Think if it were his preference though, it would’ve been introduced much earlier and signings made accordingly.

    Coulibaly Back in Training

    Think big Coulibaly’s going to be a cracking player for us as his engine and presence are great in midfield. But, the one area I think he’s not been great in so far is keeping possession and using it wisely, which on Sunday could be brutal/suicidal of it happens too often.

    *****Villarreal, Spartak Moscow and Rapid Vienna*****

    True mate, but I think given how the last few years have been for us, we should just be fucking ecstatic to be back in the mix and have Rangers' name bandied around Europe again. It's 3 well respected European names we've drawn there

    *****Villarreal, Spartak Moscow and Rapid Vienna*****

    Group H would've been cracking in terms of the names involved, but impossible to get out of. Group G just about gives us a chance

    Could've been worse, certainly in terms of logistics/travel
