Priorities

Sorry, yes we have priorities, the league but we lost a couple of trophies in 2008 by not rotating the squad.

 

We never accept second best no matter the competition, look at the reaction after Young Boys to tell you it does not work prioritising one tournament. 

We have a squad for a reason. 

If the squad gets rotated it should be in Europe though, we dropped our two best players and somebody we paid £7million for and it nearly cost us big time.

We are accepting 2nd best. Looks like we are playing our strongest selection for the euro games and not the league games. The manager has his priorities wrong.

I can understand Kent not starting as he had missed a fair few games. Easing him into the team and all that after a long Thursday night. However, Morelos’ absence is ridiculous.

Jermain Defoe is our top scorer in the league. The manager is doing a fairly good job of managing his squad of players. there has to be a degree of rotation

I say fairly good because he has blind spots like Goldson, Tav and Arfield. 

Those three also need to be rested and arguably we are better positioned to rest Goldson and Arfield than Kent as an example.

his bizarre infatuation, with the CH partnership, will cost us the league IMO

 

i'd argue the best two CH didn't even play on Sat, cue the usual strikers buzzing by our two cumbersome, immobile bosses favourites

 

his morelos nonsense is also a mark of rank stupidity

 

i'm only logging on just now so not sure if he has already done so but if he hasn't officially removed Tav from penalty duties then that would be another sign of idiocy

We’ve got a league game on Wednesday and a semi final on Sunday of course he was going to rotate the team.

Thats why you have a big squad. 

Lucky we won yesterday then to be joint top whilst competing in a semi final and progressing nicely in Europe.

Sometimes people really do like to moan for no reason.

European football is the attraction for signing £7m players, they wouldn't be happy if they were rested for big European games so they are fit to play vsMotherwell.

The euro stuff is great. 4 days all over Europe for me for the Porto game. Met loadsa great bears and loved every minute but by fuck  the league has to take priority.

We struggled again to win a league game. Gerrard will fail if he doesn't start playing his strongest team in league games. Morelos and Kent on the bench today was insane.

If Gerrard wants to rotate the squad then play Defoe etc in the euro games, and the dynamic, aggressive key players in the league games otherwise we are going to win nothing. Sure we got the 3 points but by a baw hair. 

Stop fucking with the main players Stevie G or our patience will wear thin and all your efforts will be for nothing.

Totally agree.

However, I'd say that Kent on the bench was insane. It is clear if you play Defoe you cannot lump balls up to him or cross into him and expect big results. He likes to be passed to. Kent is the only excellent supplier of this because he is the most talented player to take others on beat them and go through them.

I said when we went a goal down it's nuts to not have Kent on but thankfully he was brought on and that was the difference. I find it scary such a basic thing is being over-looked.

Personally, I'd have looked at Motherwell - hammer throwers and dirty pricks - and thought Morelos would have been the better striker for this game, but if that's the case then we wouldn't have needed Kent so much and probably would have gotten away with resting him.

I guess what to take away from the game is that Gerrard isn't very good at predicting what will happen before games at times, but he's at least capable of making the right decisions to change the way a game is going.

If Gerrard starts the next euro game with the team from yesterday then he’ll be lambasted by most people.

the next priority for the Gers is the next game. As it should be.

that team yesterday should’ve had enough guile to best Motherwell a lot easier than they made it,     And it’s time these players like Aribo and Greg Stewart started showing why they play for Rangers.

Sensible post of the morning :tu:

We played away at a really decent outfit, played the most physical team in the league off the back of it and we have another two games in the next week. There was always going to be some degree of squad rotation. It’s mental to think there wouldn’t be.

By being joint top.

RM lady and boys

It nearly cost us and it could cost us, but it actually didn’t so the rest of my post is going to be a series of if’s but’s and maybe’s - seems the be the standard RM posters attitude these days.
