Tav out till february?

Recommended Posts

I think we need a bit of experience in there so if it’s a choice between Polster and Flanagan, then it’s Polster for these upcoming games. 

That being said however, he doesn’t have anything like the delivery of Tav. He’ll certainly get forward more than Flanagan, but I think there are still questions about his final delivery/abilities in the final third. But let’s see...

SG will also have to decide who replaces Tav as captain. Any one of Jack, Goldson, Davis or  McGregor methinks.  Most likely Goldson

Itll likely be Goldson but I'd love it to be Jack.

Flanagan has more experience of our game than Polster.

I agree, Jack has more passion and works his socks off

Time for some people to realise just how important a player Tavernier is for us.

Correct, but it could have been worse news, he'll be back in a couple of weeks. If we are serious about winning 55 we can't be dropping points to St Mirren at Ibrox because our RB isn't available.

More concerned about Morelos' absence but it's Defoe's time to step up and he is well capable.

Would be good for Kent to build on his goals/assist tally too.

Goldson is vice captain so he’ll wear the armband until Tavernier comes back.

Yeah, but he offer's very, very little in terms of going forward, which is intrinsic to how we play.  Polster, at least, looks like he has the athleticism and interest to get involved in play further up the field.  And given the teams we're about to play against will be sitting deep, that's got to be more preferable.  Flanagan is pointless in such games.

Noticed the courageous guys at the rhetard managed to fuck it up. 

I'll quote it rather than post link.

James Tavernier in Rangers boost as Chinese whispers get injury issues all wrong.

The Ibrox captain was rumoured to have suffered a burst appendix but it looks like the defender should be back in action soon.

Rangers skipper James Tavernier is a doubt for Friday’s Scottish Cup clash with Stranraer due to a virus.

But the defender should be back in action in time for the crucial home league clash against St Mirren five days later.

Rumours were rife that the Tavernier’s appendix had burst and that the full back was facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

This had plunged Rangers fans into meltdown with worries their inspirational captain would miss a huge chunk of the second half of the season.

However, Record Sport Online understands those fears are unfounded and that the 28-year-old only has a small infection.

I like Polster but if Patterson doesn’t get his chance now then why do we even have a youth team 

Not the time for trying out youth for me when we’ve got a genuine title chance. Flanagan will come in n do a job then back to the bench

So when is the right time if it is not a game against Stranraer?

Patterson should play. These are matches we will dominate and his style is more aligned with Tav than the others. Put him in and see how he does against Stranraer and St Mirren

I’m not really interested in Stranraer a was more meaning st mirren, at the end of the year when the leagues won/lost would be when i tried out youngsters.

basically the same as nearly every team and manager in the world does.

Patterson is said to be one of the most promising young players we have.  He was set to break in to the first-team squad as cover for Tavernier next season anyway.  If that boy is ready then give him a run now.  The next two games are against Stranraer and St.Mirren at Ibrox.  The first team experience could really help his development and he might put in a couple of great performances.

I honestly don't see Halliday or Flanagan here next season.  It seems like Polster isn't in the long-term plans either.  Give the youth a chance.

Yeah but you said we needed experience and then picked Polster over Flanagan.

You’ve taken it out of context in terms of the posts that preceded mine. People were talking about starting Patterson for the next few games and while he may well start tomorrow, I’d fear for him at Tynecastle.  So my point being, out of the 3, Polster may well be the best option.

It seems to me Patterson oozes confidence and is fearless. Tomorrow is hardly a risk. If he looks assured, then continue against St Mirren and so on until Tav is ready to go. Biscuit hips made his debut at 18, Hickey was what - 16? Why are we so reserved to try it?  We can still give game time to Flanagan at left back tomorrow.
