Frank de Boer

I have no doubt he spoke to us.

I also have no doubt he is looking for an EPL gig - the Mail article doesn't exactly hide it.

The fact we have no money and he wants to go to the EPL means it ain't gonna happen alas.

Talking of money, I find it amazing people are suggesting McInnes when the reported compensation required would pay the likes of DeBoer for a season!

I could understand a top 7/8 epl team but I can't see him going to a mid table epl team that wont be challenging for anything cups or Europe..

That Mail article does not rule Rangers out at all, if anything it sounds like we may well be his next move. 

Don't know where you're getting that from tbh mate

Could they join up again, for some glorious tarrier bashing.

The million pound compensation to the sheep for Mcinnes would add £20,000 to FDB weekly wage. This appointment is the most important decision King has had to make so far, it will show what his intentions here are and if he truly deserves our support. 

It would be nice if the players returned the loyalty we have shown them through the years. I remember the papers a couple of years ago when Ajax faced them and when Ajax sold them a player, FDB was throwing digs about like a championship boxer. He even joked about how rubbish the player they sold them was. Come on home Frankie, at least just for 55. :dance:

And that is why we can't entirely discount the possibility. But a fair few things would have to align in our favour, not least the board doing a Hatton garden job in the next few months and getting away with it in order to fund a transfer kitty.

Any good manager would only take the job if he had a decent chance of finishing first. How many managers would take that team and win the league next season with only two or maybe three additions? The right three additions would improve us substantially, but I'm not sure it would be enough. Folk on here are talking about starting from scratch again which I doubt will happen.

Hope I'm wrong of course. The one thing I would say is it surely can't go as badly wrong for us and right for the filth as this season.

Hmm reading that article he says during his time at Inter there was other stuff he had to deal with outwith the football side of things and that made him lose energy - I hope I'm not reading too much into that as our circus off the field could make him think twice.

This. If the board sanctioned a million pound a year salary for Joey Barton, knowing the risks (which they did, at 20K a week), then they'll pay FDB a million because he is staunch. TBH I would not be surprised if Rossiter and Barton were the end of Warbs in King's eyes: between them, they have amounted to 1.5m pounds for Sweet Fanny Adams...

Krancjar and Senderos as well are meant to be on more than than £20k a week between them! ?

So we are establishing that we are able to pay his wage the big issue is do we have immediate funds if he is the choice or if he is given a mediocre amount and has to work miracles. If I was a major shareholder I would give him what he needs and maybe a little above if I was looking to sell if FDB did well, we were again on world TV due to CL etc and dream scenario wise we would be able to have a guy who wants a team who are recognised as a pet project. Before anybody jumps down my throat I mean a guy who has serious cash and then trickles it down to a DOF who approves signings that only the manager identifies... Only Sending this out there as I am not getting anything from my London sources, I live in London, I had the scoop on JT and whatever his name was from Man City, Ridiculous I know but occasionally my friend who have grown up with will leak a story even to me and in turn us!

Well I hope he's reading this because if that doesn't seal the deal, I don't know what the fuck else would. ??

Did I not read a while ago , that one of the factors involved on whether he takes on a managers job , is if the players there are at such a reasonable standard that he can work with them . 

Surely that in itself would rule him out

Don't we have insurance that pays the wages of injured players? i.e Krancjer and Rossiter. 

Known us we're probably doubling their wages!

I'd be fucking raging if De Boer was in London the same week as our MD and we didn't even enquire about his availability. 

No like you to be negative FS! ?

The Mail interview. If you read it properly,  he clearly keeps door open for Rangers. So much so I think it may be a done deal. 

We can only hope mate.

:lol: Tbh mate I was like one of the most optimistic and positive posters on here until about November time. Standing in Tynecastle watching us getting beat 2-0 going on 6 with no passion really turned my head and the final nail in the coffin was the second hearts game, I think that's when most people knew time was up.

In terms of the board, like many I thought great, real Rangers men in. That started going downhill when we were taken off the stock exchange. Then in August last year I was done. Giving the manager a grand total of 1.8 mill to spend in the whole summer window, and not one improvement in the Ibrox toilets over the summer, whilst putting up paper banners instead of cleaning things like the white structure on top of the main stand grinds my gears. I feel they got it right with MW dismissal and the only true way they turn this around for me is bringing in FDB or a bigger name and giving him a decent whack to spend. If were sitting here in August having spent 1.8 million in the whole summer transfer window I can see a lot of fans really starting to resent them.

Miles OT but I used to be an optimist. Now I'm just a grumpy cunt
