  1. Only the most optimistic of fans would have expected us to win the league last season. I always thought it would take SG at least 3 transfer windows to turn us round. We were in a fu.ckin awful state when he arrived, barely a handful of players worthy of the Rangers jersey in our entire squad. If he fails this season it will imo be his first season of failure with the club. He gets a pass last season. Every manager deserves a 2nd chance(providing our performances dont nosedive this season).
  2. Strongest team until the tie is completely put to rest.
  3. He wasnt playing for Dundee before that. He was injured/downed tools along with others in the Dundee squad. One of the worst teams in the modern Premier League dont stop playing such an impressive player unless for good reason.
  4. I'm not sure the 'art' of bringing through young professionals is about coaching & training, at least once they get to a certain age, say, 18-21. You kinda assume that if the club has done even the slightest amount of homework on the club they are loaning to then the loanee will get passable coaching at the club he moves to. I think the loan system is a way of keeping young players on the books and hoping they develop into senior pros. It's notoriously difficult to predict which youth players will kick on to top class pros and which ones will fall by the wayside. Chelsea have dozens of youth players out on loan. Not every one of them will become EPL class. Loaning them out ensures Chelsea will have every opportunity of seeing which ones will make the grade before releasing them or not.
  5. Yup, apart from maybe the 4-2 game that's the most clear cut chances we have created against them this season. In fact it's probably more than we created against them in about 3-4 games combined. Just think back to all that huffing and puffing against them at Hampden in the semi final, we created virtually fuck all that day.
  6. I'm maybe biased because he's one of us but this is one of the most positive and inspirational replies I've heard from a footballer. You'd want this guy in the footballing trenches with you. I think this kid is gonna be a top player either at Rangers or somewhere else.

    This is a fair enough comment, I think. We'll probably know soon enough whether Defoe still has it. I tend to think his natural level now in England is either lower Premiership(Bournemouth wouldn't dare loan or sell him to an epl rival) or somewhere in the Championship. It's almost impossible to predict which players can maintain a high level of play at an older age. Some fall by the wayside drastically in their mid thirties, others can maintain a high standard.
  8. Yup, great to have a decisive victory but I have given up judging this Rangers team against pishy SPL teams at Ibrox. An away game against, say, Hibs or Livi will tell us far more imo about the relative strengths of this team than a hammering of Dundee or Well at Ibrox.
  9. That's what happens when you inherit a squad of players containing only a handful of players good enough to be named in a Rangers squad.
  10. I think if he keeps scoring there is every chance he returns to us in January. By then we'll have a more accurate appraisal of how he is progressing in the lower leagues.
  11. This. He's also being targeted by opposing players......and rightly so. If I thought I could niggle a player into getting himself sent off I'd niggle away at him all match. Us fans would expect our players to do the same to opposing players
  12. When he's fitter, say, after another reserve outing. I'm surprised he is not included, I'm just trying to give a non sensationalist reason as to why. Edit: scrub that. He's on the bench?
  13. There are only so many squad places available and we have already 4 or 5 players needing game time. That's my positive interpretation anyway.
  14. I can't see us starting with Middleton, Dorrans and Grezda. I think Middleton will start as he is match fit. Dorrans may also start, failing that get a good half hour. I hope to see Grezda at some point in the game.
