26 games in Europe under Gerrard

Recommended Posts

While I think it's impressive, I don't think it is as impressive as some of us make out given the obscene number of qualifying rounds we have had to play. 

For me our outstanding stat is we haven't lost at home in Europe under Stevie G, especially the clean sheets against Porto, Legia, Feyernood, Villareal, Spartak and Ufa. Teams should be very nervous playing us, especially at Ibrox.

And never lost to Rapid either . That was just gutting as they were pish .

And then Young boys . ffs it could easily be 30 straight without loss

To balance that argument, I'm struggling to think of a game we were fortunate not to lose, Maybe last night at a push, But even then we were the more clinical team,

Without being too deluded I think we can get as far as the quarters this year

I’d be disappointed if we didn’t get to the round of 16.

Weve just beaten last seasons Champions League quarter finalists. While they did have an easy group they still were good value against Roma in the first knock out round. Yes, they have lost Felipe, Militao and Herrera but they have signed over €58m worth of players this summer.

Toughest part is getting out the group stages.

In the past we have seen Rangers teams with better players perform much worse in Europe so Gerrard and his team really are making the difference here.

European competition is in the DNA of these Liverpool guys and they just know how to set the team up for these games

Some folk are hard to please 🙂

Before Gerrard’s arrival we got pumped out of Europe by a team of part timers from Luxembourg in the first qualifying round.

Even if Gerrard had inherited a team that had qualified for the group stages, 3 losses in 26 games would be some record.

To achieve those figures from the state the club was left in courtesy of Caixinha and Murty is, quite frankly, astonishing.

Like many, I had doubts  when Gerrard was appointed, due to his lack of experience.  However, he has transformed the club to the point where it is believable that we could win a league title (that was out of the question before he arrived), and as far as Europe is concerned, I don't believe that any other manager would have produced this sequence of results over two seasons.

The board took a big gamble with the appointment but Gerrard's been great.  The difference between now, and before he took over, is incredible.  We need to keep him here at Ibrox for as long as we can.

Hardly, I even said it was impressive, just not as much as some on here would have you believe. 16 of those games were qualifiers... 

The calibre of team we have played in the groups the past 2 seasons is far above anyone we played in qualifiers. 10 games, 3L, 4D, 3W.

Maribor are arguably better than two of the sides we had in our group last season, Osijek weren't a bad side, Warsaw were difficult and midjtyland were no mugs 

It's hardly mypa-47, gi gotu or some other shite. 

Don't be slagging @johanhentzes local team, he'll have your balls for that! Probably go and cook them in some viking stew as well :lol:

Villarreal away and Ufa we rode our luck.

Our results have been exceptional.

Whilst they are not my local team (ÍF Fuglafjørður is 😉 ) they are from the next village.. population around 700. My uncle played against Rangers back then 🙂

Legia are nowhere near the side they were years ago. Osijek fairly average. According to Midgtyland fans they have been in free fall the last couple of years. Maribor wouldn't look out of place in our groups, I'll give you that. Teams like Progrès, St Joseph's, Skupi etc are free wins. 

Being competitive in our group last year was impressive. Our group this year has 2 teams of genuine quality and a decent team in Feyernood. To be 1 game away from qualification, against our weakest opponent in the group is so much more impressive than a statline bloated from teams like Progrès.

Only St Josephs and Shkupi are really weak sides. 

Progres knocked out Gabala and were unlucky against Ufa last year.

Forgetting about Villarreal there ,But for me the UFA game the ref robbed us,the 2 red cards were extremely harsh ,watched a good few games since and saw players deliberately kick the ball and no card ,Morelos got a yellow for kicking the ball in his stride

Progres knocked out Qarabag less than a year after they drew home and away to Atletico Madrid.

Can't put them in same category as St Joseph's and Shkupi. 

Fair. But I wouldn't put them in the same tier as us. The teams we have drawn in the groups though have arguably been a tier above us on paper, but we haven't looked out of place in any game.

I agree with what your saying, also I edited my post was Gabala not Qarabag.

Not a strong side but in between St Joseph's and Osijek.

In free fall at the top of their table. Wish we were in that much free fall

According to their fans on the European stage they have been ever since they got the result against Man U. Lot of them saying EL2 will be their level when it starts.
