getting sick of Gerrards stubborness with this formation and the same players week in week out, change it ffs, teams have sussed us, what does he actually see from the sidelines and watching games back? if he see's this as being a winning formula then we are well and truely fucked. Also what is the point of Beale and McAllister if they wont tell him to change things if its not working, their as complicit in this shambles as Gerrard is.

It’s not the formation that’s the problem it’s the way we play.

If you are slow and pass sideways and backward you play right into the hands of teams that camp in.

Fast paced attacks with this formation is what’s needed.

The threat of shooting from outside the box forces teams to come out a bit but we do it so little that teams don’t fear it.

Gerrard was brilliant from shots outside the box, you would think he would encourage it.

Hagi is an attacking midfield player. I will keep saying it.  We need to decide very soon who the #10 is. 

Tbh to me the best solution if we want to get the best out of Kent and Hagi seems to be we play a 4-2-3-1 with two wingers (Kent and 1 other man whose job it is just to stay wide, Hagi central behind the striker), not this two 10s pish where we take away some of Hagi's space and also force Kent infield where he's clearly not as comfortable as out on the wing

Is Kent good out the wing? 

Does the same step over and try to cut inside just to stop, turn and pass back every fucking time

Taigs showing the bottle to win a game they should never have won

And we put out basically the same team/same formation expecting a different result from Wednesday night, fucking crazy.

Gerrard's stubbornness is why he'll never be a top class manager, in 2 years he hasn't learned how to adapt to teams, he plays 1 way & teams have figured that out

Nonsense, whatever shortcomings he has he's exactly the type of person to overcome them and he will. Less than two seasons in management he's not going to suss it all out in that time

Filth play well below par but still eek out a win.

That's the difference.

We ain't got that in our team.

Aberdeen never had their strongest team out either.

Fair point, I dno, he has had his best games in a Rangers top playing wide left IMO (I.e. last season) plus if hes playing shite out there I'd rather he loses the ball taking a man on out on the wing instead of centrally trying to take 4 men on like recently which leaves our ageing midfield struggling and having to take yellows for shite fouls

Not expecting him to suss out all the shortcomings in that time but I do at least expect a manager to have more than 1 gameplan

Livi could've predicted that lineup days ago & could predict we'll get the ball out to Tav to whip ball after ball into the box, it's the same tactic we've had all season & its made even worse without us having Barisic on the other side doing the same thing

We've been crying out for a change in the last 6 weeks but Gerrard is so stubborn he refuses to change anything, the similarities between him just now & Warburton are crazy but hes escaped most of the criticism because he's Gerrard, simple as that.

I dont get this inexperienced stuff, wether hes been manager for one year or two, hes been in the game for 3 decades hes worked with some good coaches and been in the supposed greatest league in the world all his career, did he shut his eyes to the way teams play or how his managers setup and change things when needed? everything he learned from playing under diffrent managers during his playing career should stand him in good stead for his own managerial career but so far hes sticking to the same way every week which in my opinion is stubborness in thinking his way is right and thats that.

When I see Halliday in a starting line-up mate, I know it is time to try a new formation in Borna's absence.

Seems so obvious you wonder why SG can’t see it.

Been saying this for months. If either Tav or Borna are out we've got to switch formation and be creative
