*****Official Rangers v Livingston Match Thread*****

Recommended Posts

Meaningless game, hope the fans give the team pelters when they come out the tunnel. I certainly wont be celebrating any goals. Even if they come out and blow them away it is far too little too late, they should have done it when it matters.

Last 5 league games (oldest to newest):

Rangers: LWDWL (7 points) 

Livi:            WWWLW (12 points) 

These cunts are actually in better form than us... . and that's with us playing relegation fodder hearts and hamilton.

Atmosphere is going to be absolutely poisonous and rightly so. That team deserves every bit of criticism coming its way on Saturday. 
 

Cunts on here thinking the moaning and groan was bad after 10 minutes at routine games. Wait till the 35th minute when we’ve had 1 shot on target and Davis has clipped the ball out for a goal kick

Couldn’t give a fuck. League is over. 

No wonder diddy teams get such shite crowds. That’s what we’ve become. An utter laughing stock. 

Completely agree. Absolute diddy club. 
 

Turn up for the biggest game, the 29th, and are absolute dogshit since then.

This is time for him to change some things and try something new because we've been found out tactically. 

We're not scoring enough goals, we've scored 7 in our 6 league games since coming back whereas celtic have scored 22 in their 6 games back. Before the break we were matching celtic for goals. I also think the midfield have been overused as well and we're left ourselves with little depth.

A change to 3-5-2 could solve both these situations. Changing from effectively 4 or 5 central midfielders to just 3 opens up all kinds of possibilities in there with the 6 or 7 options we have. It leaves a question about Kent but he could certainly play as a 10 as he has been almost anyway, but to be quite frank I think he needs a game or two on the bench.

 Then up top we have to get more goals into the team because nobody in that midfield has contributed anything near enough. Arfield has been in decent form scoring 5 in his last 6 starts but before that he hasn't contributed much overall. Changing to a back 3 also gives the deepest of the central midfielders a bit of freedom to go forward without worrying what's happening in behind them.

This idea that Morelos can't play with someone else has to change. We literally rely on him whether we win games or not and it's no fair on him though I'm sure he enjoys being the man. Him and Kamberi going up against two opposition centre halfs seems like a decent match up for us and when Defoe is back then even better. With players like Tav, Barisic whipping in balls like they can having two strikers in there seems a logical step. The creativity of Hagi, Kent or even Stewart in behind them two is an interesting prospect along with ability of Arfield or Aribo to run in behind a defence that has been pulled apart by Morelos, Kamberi or Defoe.

                                    McGregor

              Goldson Edmundson  Katic

Tavernier      Arfield    Jack       Barisic (if fit)

                                       Hagi

                         Morelos  Kamberi

It's all too late now but this is a time to experiment now and try different things. What are we going to lose? Second place?

Let's hope the team doesn't feel the same way. They have to not give up.

Agree with that setup for solidity and goal threat. Kent and Aribo need a seat on the bench, two forwards who don't score enough. Either play a centre forward and two inside forwards like Liverpool or play 2 up. This notion that we have 3 up but two are number 10s is cack.

Hagi isn't a wide man he's a central attacking mid (traditional 10 not inside forward let's just call it a 10 even though it's not type 10).

Meaningless game. Every effort needs to be channelled to the cup

You may be right, but this season might be our best chance to stop 10. So we need to keep plugging away.

Kent and Aribo have scored 8 goals in the league compared to christie and forrest who have scored 21. Considering the GD difference is 18 we see the problem with them two. That's it we're trying to play like Liverpool when we don't have Salah or Mane types scoring 15+ goals in the league each.

I agree on Hagi as well. For at least 90% of the game he should be within the two wide lines of the penalty box. As you say he's not a drifting inside forward!

After the 29/12 it was our best chance. Looking at the fixtures after Christmas it looked really promising but these shitebags have blown it. 
We are not winning the title this season and will end up further than 10 behind them. Livingston on Sat is completely meaningless. 
Even if the players went out and won 5-0 it’s not going to matter in fact it would almost be rubbing our noses in it

A win here, and the sheep to beat them at Pittodrie for the first time in 4 years* on Sunday, and we are right back in it.

 

Aggregate score of last 3 matches against them in Aberdeen:

Sheep 0  Cel*ic 10
