***** The Official Porto v Rangers Match Thread *****

Recommended Posts

I feel I should apologise because I think we might not win against 236m valued Porto after the performance against Hearts. Clearly form is not a key factor because we were able to destroy two really shite teams in the league - Hamilton and a severely weakened Aberdeen at Ibrox. let's be clear that there is no such thing as away and home form, and according to some form just does not exist.

Oh woe is me.

----------------------end of sarcasm---------------------

A draw will be an incredible result after that awful performance against Hearts, no matter what RFCwhatever will tell you.

I am looking forward to it as well. I just hope that Gerrard refreshes the starting XI.

Personally I'd drop most of the team, it's the only way I think we could get anything from this match. It might do some of the under performers good to know that their starting place is up for grabs.

Hope he does but knowing Gerrard it won't be major changes. Expect to see Kent start and changes in defence though.

We aren’t qualifying. Porto away, Feyenoord away are guaranteed defeats. Porto at home maybe a draw and we should be beating Young Boys at home. Doubt 7 points will be enough. 

Would love to be proved wrong Jela but our form isn't strong enough to convince me either 

I think we may take 1 point away from home 1 win and 1 draw at home 

8 Pts is my guess

The question is if he's fit enough to start, wouldn't be surprised if he comes on later in the game until he gets his fitness up.

Tavernier Goldson Katic Barisic

Swap Aribo for Jack if he is available.

Blueteeth are you alright mate?

Bored at work mate.

I just find it amazing some people don't understand form be it good, bad, inconsistent, away or home doesn't have any effect on the next game.

Mind blowing.

We really needed to be in a good place going into this game, and beating Hearts and going top would have done that. Time for players to be dropped I think.

Might see a change in formation here. Think of we set up 4-3-3 we could get hammered. 

Either 3-5-1-1 or 4-5-1 I think would work well. 

Perhaps 

Mcgregor  

Helmander Goldson Katic 

Kent Jack Davis Arfield Barisic

Morelos

or

Mcgregor

Flanangan Goldson Katic Barisic 

Arfield Jack Davis Kamara Kent 

Morelos

I have to say I find it astonishing some fans say that Europa League is irrelevant.

Not sure of the exact figures but it's something like £550.000 for a win and £250.000 for a draw in prize money. We should be aiming to get as many points as we can. If we narrowly fail to get out of the group then its no disaster.

       Tavernier Davis Aribo Barisic

                                  Kent

              Morelos             Defoe

I don't see it as an irrelevance but the league should be the priority imo

If we could better prepare for an upcoming important league game by fielding a weakened side in Europe I'd be all for that. I know a lot of people will disagree, but for me this season is all about the league.

He's an idiot mate. 

I stated my opinion be it right or wrong, you went on the attack then didn't like it when I went on the attack.

We both think each other are idiots, and we support Rangers. So at least we have two things in common. 

Imagine getting pissed off at someones opinion :lol:

dont see anything other than a porto win and it might be by quite a few goals

if we cant beat one of the shitest teams in scotland and can only get one shot on target for the 90 then a huge change has to occur for us not to be embarassed

This was my first point, and it was retarded apparently, honestly think people have difficulty reading.

Gerrard will be daft to start Kent he's had no pre-season at us and no game time. Helmander will start with Goldson as we have to squeeze some game time out of the 3 million pound white elephant.

A big european match, Gerrard has a chance to make a statement to everyone that nobody is undroppable by not starting Tav. Get Flannigan in there and give the armband to Davis or Jack if he is back. 

The last thing I want to see is Tav flapping about like he has done all season and giving away goals or crossing the ball to row z.
