Steven Gerrard MBE - New Manager

Recommended Posts


I have to admit, I’m quite excited about this now. I was dubious about this whole thing up until about a minute ago ?

But my hope is that a back “triangle” of McGregor, Alves and(if the rumours are true) Skrtl mixed with Gerrard knowing what a midfield needs to be doing will surely see us being a far more formidable team than we have been.

I know Alves hasn’t set the heather alight (and may very well leave) but I think he’s maybe been trying to dodge injury for his last ever World Cup. I appreciate folk will be raging at that but, if I’m being ultra generous to him, we’re not his boyhood heroes and if he missed out on a last crack at the World Cup coz some hammer thrower injured him then I can see why he’s try to avoid that. If he decides to retire after the WC then that’s good we save on wages.

I also appreciate that Skrtl has his downsides but he’s a hardy player and would surely be able to take the rough and tumble up here.

I’ll probably regret all of this but we haven’t had too many things to be excited about in the past 6 years as Rangers supporters, so I’m taking it.

What kind of manager has he been like? 

Sit looking glum and uninspired when being beat? Or mollycoddle his players?

Or does he shout and demand action?

He hasn’t been any kind of manager at all.

Coach, no?

EDIT: nah it says ‘manager’. Still wouldn’t take it as a proper job.

I truly hope for no Skrtl. That is a tattoo impersonating a defender! The same mould as a certain Swiss person who visited us recently for a sight seeing holiday.

Nothing like him.

They might hate other, just remember the clip good, they were talking for a good bit, could all just been because of the Liverpool connection. I know Gerrard is still raw about BR dropping him for Real Madrid game 

Think he slates Rodgers in his book aswell, saying he threw him under the bus after his slip against Chelsea.

Exciting and sure we will all support him however I have this little nagging doubt eating away that “promises” of investment is not the same thing as “actual” investment. We have all been misled before at this club and SG needs to keep his eyes and ears open. If there is no investment on the scale required I hope he kicks off about it. 

I have a vision of this being one of those 35 day reigns, with him cashing in his chips if the board don’t make good on their promises.

UNLESS

The rumoured investment is dependent on his appointment.

Typical of our lot, though, to get things the wrong way round, leaving us to wonder where the money is coming from.....

This is it. Mad that we are doing something, trying something daring and exciting in a business and football sense, rather than curling into fetal position.

If it does actually happen, how will Brendan's ego cope with a bigger, and more internationally known, name than him in Scottish football, a person who will generate more media coverage and interest than he could ever hope to do!

I'm not wanting to be negative or buzzkill but has anyone considered what might happen if King doesn't come good on this promise of substantial investment that he's assured Gerrard of? could you imagine how difficult it would be to attract top players and/or a capable manager if Gerrard were to fall out over a lie like this and walk away? our brand could be ruined for a long, long time.

I'm not saying this on purpose to kill any good feeling irrespective of what a couple might think reading it, it's actually a legitimate concern of mine.

This has to be done right on so many levels. I'm really hopeful King finally comes good on delivering something to us because he owes us it in my eyes.

Buzzkill
