*****The Official Sacramento Vs Rangers Thread*****

Recommended Posts

Ally can experiment all he wants he must think we woke up from a coma yesterday. Everyone knows away games will be Miller up top on his own and Jig centre midfield playing the Makalele role. In Allys mind anways. I say away games probably most home ones too.

Ally get out

McCullochelele?

embarrassing, laughable, clueless, cringeworthy, turgid and tedious...

Just a few words to describe US soccer commentators.

You'd make a good one then. (tu)

Thank fuck Boyd agreed to sign for us, I think his goals will drag us through the season and should be enough to get us promoted. I despair for the rest of the team and Ally isnt helping.

Rangers played magnificently in the last 8 seconds of the match, Ally's tactical switch of bringing on Black at the interval and keeping Miller on for the full 90 minutes paid off handsomely.

Don't forget his amazing decision to bring on Darren McGregor who then scored our first goal.

Although that sitter in the first half would have you believing otherwise.

It was a shambles to watch players out of position we actually struggled all over the park, we got lucky with a last gasp goal as our poor play will be punished by decent opposition.

What? Shut up. There are still another 3 pre-season games until we play Hibs. Too many Mystic Meg arseholes on here.

you dont need to be mystic meg to guess some of ally's choices, kenny miller returning is a prime example

jig in midfield as well, if we arent going to use him there this season then why waste vital pre season games with him there instead of letting a midfield partnership work together

you can moan all you like, but too many are now tired of watching ally fit the squares into round holes

Here's what McCoist said after this mornings match about the formation in the Ventura game:

No, we’ll try it again. This is what preseason is all about – we’ve been working on it in training.

To be honest with you in the last game we defended as poorly as we have in a long time but I actually felt we defended worse in the second half with the four in the back rather then the first half with the three & five defenders.

So we’ll keep working on these things – that’s what preseason is all about. But we certainly looked better today but we still didn’t defend well in the first half with the four but it was miles better in the second half.

We’ll keep working on it in the preseason & we’ll try the three, the four, the five in the back. It’s nice to have a couple of strings in your bow or you become too one dimensional.

I like that answer, kind of makes a mockery of those who were adamant that he had decided on that as his formation for the season.

we are in the scottish championship, we dont have any european games and will likely be the favourites for 90% of our games, we have miller, boyd, daly, clark, gallagher that can all play up front

The 5-4-1 should never ever be considered (or the 3-6-1 as some called it)

we dont have the international class players that we did pre admin, where we could use different systems, we should be finding the most basic, less complicated system our guys fit into and working on that first

why try 3 systems when we can barely play one as it is, the 4 new guys will find it hard enough integrating into the team with them having 2 or 3 formations to play in 2 games

pre season is about ironing out the kinks in our play, getting the players comfortable in knowing whats expected of them in the system we use, the players dont really look like they know what and where to play

3 pre season games left, and there's a good chance we'll go into the competitive games 50% competent in 3 or 4 different systems, without actually being comfortable in 1

I disagree about Miller

He will do us a turn this season

im not saying that, im talking about how TWB says there's too many mystic meg arseholes in here, when at times they are right on the button, miller returning for example,

miller will do a turn, but as a lone striker we dont try to implement the midfield support to back him up, we need two up front and a simply midfield formation, or else change our midfield thinking dramatically

He put Law on the right? doh

The guy just wont ever learn will he?

MacLeod played out lefy ,Law shunted to the right, McKay didn't get any game time and I think Jig has now started every pre season game.

Playing our best midfielders in their natural positions would be the easiest solution

The Sacramento Bee

Rangers FC of Scotland beats Republic FC in friendly

By Bill Paterson

bpaterson@sacbee.com

Published: Saturday, Jul. 19, 2014 - 11:05 pm

When Rangers FC of Scotland played Republic FC in a friendly Saturday night at Bonney Field, the Briggs family of Elk Grove couldn’t lose.

Robert Briggs was born 47 years ago at a hospital two miles from Rangers FC’s famed Ibrox Stadium in Glasgow. The stadium was on his father’s postal route.

He converted his wife, Elaine, a Northern Ireland native, to Rangers fandom when they married. Their children – Lois, 20, Esther, 18, Deborah, 16, and Andrew, 14 – grew up with blue in their blood. That’s the color of Scotland’s most renowned soccer club.

But Briggs, a pastor, also is Republic FC’s chaplain and a season-ticket holder of the first-year USL Pro franchise. His daughters, all current or former soccer players, also are huge fans.

“We’re 100 percent for both,” Deborah said before the Rangers rallied to beat Republic FC 2-1.

“We’re 200 percent behind them,” Robert said, flashing a big smile. “To have the Rangers come to Sacramento at a time when there’s all this excitement about Sac Republic, it’s just amazing for us.”

For the last nine years, Robert Briggs has coached a girls soccer team in Land Park. Not surprisingly, they are called the Rangers.

Lois and Esther were members of the team before they aged out. Deborah, who also plays soccer at Laguna Creek High School, captained last season’s Rangers team to the U-16 California Youth Soccer Association-North District VI championship. Deborah and many of her Rangers teammates served as ballgirls for Saturday’s match.

Robert and Deborah presented the Rangers FC team with one of their District VI championship banners at practice Friday at Bonney Field. They also had players autograph a Rangers youth jersey that Lois first wore as a 5-year-old and was passed down to her sisters.

“We grew up watching the Rangers because every year we knew we’d get a new jersey at Christmas,” Esther said.

The family also regularly watched Ally McCoist, the Rangers’ coach and legendary striker, when he was on the popular BBC show “A Question of Sport.”

Among their favorite Rangers players are midfielder Kris Boyd and defender Dean Shiels. :lol:

Lois and Esther played for Dean’s father, Kenny, when he ran soccer camps and coached a team they were on as little girls.

Boyd has the same last name as Elaine’s maiden name (though no family connection), and he was an entertaining and prolific scorer for the Rangers from 2006 to 2010 who has returned to the team this season.

The Briggs sisters’ favorite Republic FC player is forward Thomas Stewart because he hails from Northern Ireland, where they were born.

The girls attended a Rangers match at 50,000-seat Ibrox Stadium in 2010, an atmosphere they said was like no other they’ve experienced. While Bonney Field isn’t quite the Ibrox, the Briggs family also enjoys the festive atmosphere at the 8,000-seat stadium. It doesn’t hurt that Republic FC plays entertaining soccer.

While he’s rooting for Republic FC in its bid to move to Major League Soccer, he’s proud the Rangers appear to be overcoming a tumultuous period in their long and stellar history.

McCoist is trying to resurrect a club that was forced into receivership over a tax dispute and dropped from the Scottish Premier League, in which it won a record 54 titles. After winning two lower-division titles, the Rangers have climbed to the second-tier Scottish Championship League, in which they begin play in August.

“Ally McCoist has stuck by the club in its darkest days,” Robert Briggs said. “From a Rangers point a view and from a fan’s point of view, Ally’s loyalty is second to none. He has had to rebuild the Rangers from scratch.”

He looks overweight and fucked 2 clear cut chances last night. If anyone looks like they could drag us through the season its Miller.

Totally agree. He looked a cut above, albeit in a truly underwhelming team.

What a load of nonsense, pre-season is about gaining match sharpness for the coming season, and to experiment with formations and players. People moan about us being too one dimensional with no plan B and then moan when we try something different in friendlies.

You STILL haven't worked out that I don't think he's much of a manager at all, have you?

Maybe I should take one stock negative opinion on everything and throw in some name-calling while I'm at it. My point is that people cream over negativity on here, witness the ridiculous posts by people in the first half who suddenly disappeared when we went 2-1 up.
