***The Official NK Maribor vs. The Rangers Thread***

Recommended Posts

If Jamie Ness is dropped for Lee McCulloch it'll say everything we need to know about Ally McCoist reign here.

If he does then he deserves a kick in the stones.

Ness was outstanding against Calley at the weekend and looks as if he's only going to get better.

if it's Jig and Edu again tonight then i fear the worst, and thats exactly what i think it will be after Ally saying Jig is fit,

just put a shift in Rangers and bring us back a goal or two at least.

I think Captain America will go straight into the team mate. And McCulloch will play along side Davis and Edu, im not convinced Ally will play Jamie. :(

I think he will too, but thats something I don't want to see.

The guy probably hasn't even trained with us yet.

What I'd pick:

McGregor

Broadfoot Goian Bocanegra Wallace

Ortiz Davis Ness Edu Naismith

Jelavic

What I expect to see:

McGregor

Broadfoot Goian Bocanegra Wallace

Davis Edu Ness McCulloch Ortiz

Jelavic

I'll be surprised if Rangers come away from Slovenia in the lead. I think this'll fizz out into a bore 0-0 draw.

It will certainly help that his native tongue is English but as you say, he probably wouldnt have had a training session yet with the lads. I dont know DBBTB, i can definetely see Ally playing him. Im probably wrong, its just a hunch.

We would have signed him at 10:15 at night if we didn't plan to play him today :lol:

It's a risky decision and I just hope it doesn't backfire.

Bocanegra seems to be a very intelligent player so I'm not too weary of him starting alongside Goian tonight. I think, if anything, he'll add more stability to the back-line.

Any reason why you think Ally would drop one of our most important players in Naismith?

I can't see him playing Naismith ahead of Ortiz on the left, as stupid as that is.

He'll sacrifice that place for Edu in the middle. Obviously, I'll be delighted if I'm wrong.

I don't think Bocanegra will start after reading this

However, each team is only allowed one "wild card" signing ahead of the qualifiers and McCoist decided to hand that to Bocanegra.

Bocanegra left his home near Lyon in the early hours of Thursday morning, flying to Frankfurt then Graz before being driven to the team's base in Slovenia.

He arrived just before 11am local time

That's a shit lot of traveling to do before your first game with your new team which is a crunch european game away in Slovenia

Ortiz seems glued to that left wing in every McCoist selection. If he was to finally drop Ortiz then I'd be delighted and that would leave a space open for Naismith who should obviously be starting.

I just think that with Edu inevitably playing in the middle tonight that it leaves McCoist a choice to sacrifice one or the other and he seems to have fallen in love with playing Ortiz out of the position on the left-hand side.

Don't get me wrong though, I'm not crazy. I'd start Naismith.

Pretty certain Ness or McCulloch would drop out for Naismith. He could also play Ness and McCulloch as the defensive 2 and Naismith, Edu and Davis ahead of those 2.

Also Ortiz did not start at home to Malmo or against St Johnstone.
