****The Official Villareal v's Rangers match thread****

Recommended Posts

Hoping for a disciplined performance that the players can learn & progress from, playing against a good Spanish team here.  

No injuries or crazy sending offs.  

Bon Voyage to all the travelling Bears.

I doubt we'll see the best of Grezda before the winter break. Not being overly critical of the guy as he's been out for ages. All things considered though, he looked a bit like a rabbit in the headlights yesterday. I have no doubt he will come good, just not for a wee while yet.

Really difficult game.

Set-up hard to beat and try sneak one.

Hope not we've nothing to lose here.

Although I concede that's the way we got through the qualification I'd love to see us have a real go unhindered by fear. These euro games tend to favour the creative player's  more given the extra time you get on the ball.

People saying they look poor, average etc are fooling themselves.

They play at a much higher level and have a better quality of player than us.

A draw would be an excellent result. 

A draw would be excellent.

Villareal look to be very poor. Lucky to be 0-0 at HT.

I thought a draw would be a good result but if they play like this on Thursday then we can win the match.

Bold statement mate. This is La Liga. A draw would be fine.

They are a team playing top flight Spanish football week in week out, it goes without saying they will be technically very good.

Go compete with confidence though, get our good players on the ball and just see how we fare. Nothing to lose in defeat but everything to gain confidence wise if we don't.

I imagine Mr Gerrard and his coaching staff will be eyeing the game with the primary and dominating thought that first and foremost we do not lose the game, closely followed by a very high expectation that when we get goal scoring chances we take them.    Don't concede and do the level best and more to score.     Develop the reputation of tough to beat and lethally dangerous when it comes to taking our chances.    

The squad should be right up for this game and the upcoming other European games.   It's the stage they want to play on and its the perfect opportunity for them to build good reputations as top class players playing for a top class club.   What an opportunity for Manager, coaches and squad,   It's great to be back at this level isn't it.

I'm really excited for this game. I wish Morelos was available though. Gutted he's suspended for it.

Agree but but big laff plays the loan striker roll very well
