Gerrard on the brink

The only SPL players would be Lewis Ferguson and possibly David Turnbull.

Hickey would be a decent squad addition too as he can play both full back positions.

Greg docherty and Ferguson, same level imo. Rather give our own a chance. We will see Wednesday night UF Gerrard has any balls, likes if polster came in and was our best for best for 2 games then is completely out the squad of 18 fir ojo, Barker đŸ€ą

Whilst we are still in the Europa league he won't walk, We have made progress since he came in but the performances domestically since the Winter break have been nothing short of a disgrace. We needed another striker and attacking option in the summer and we didn’t get it. 

Our next 2 games will go a long way in seeing if Gerrard is going to be our Manager going forward. Personally I think that if he has taken us as far as he can and his inability to change a game when it's going wrong will be a big reason he won't be here. Certain players for him are undropable even when they really need a spell on the sidelines. Tav, Goldson, Helender (when fit) OJO. 

Only way Gerrard walks is when he wants to go, 

Dunno about that...

Ibrox can go poisonous very quickly...even the ones that sit on there hands full games scared to shout or sing with the only atmosphere we have at our morgue of a stadium(union bears) will vent fury.

Not saying we should get him now, his health for a start isnt the best, and he is finished, but what he did for us, not just trophy wise, but financially shouldn't be forgotten, 

Ok I guess I picked you up wrong but going over what happened in the past dosent help us now, different times aswell that momentum the tarriers have picked up is hard to stop when winning becomes easy and normal for them

Neither can I. I think that's one of the few things on here that most of us will agree on and that's that Gerrard won't be sacked, but after watching that interview last night, it did look like Gerrard was seriously thinking of handing in his resignation letter, which I would somehow doubt comes with a payoff.

I think he'd want to see out the European campaign but my old man said to me today that if he left before the Bayer game, he could have Europe on his CV as an indisputable success, kinda made me do a double take and see the logic in that too tbh.

Ferguson is so much better than Docherty

Growing tired of this myth that we need hammer throwers to win this league.

Players need a blend of silk and steel yes, but fuck all this hammer thrower nonsense.

How many do the scum have?

We need a few key players that are better than what we've got, and a few more still to take a long fucking hard look in the mirror and pull themselves the fuck together.

We need some more physicality and yes steel in this side mate.  How often have we been bullied by more physical sides in the league,  our play breaks down and we can't cope. 

It doesn't need to be hammer throwers throwing elbows and going in late. 

It does need to be strong physical players that can hold their own , win battles, overpower and overrun the opposition when needed.

Our last title side had flair in it but it also had players who could win the battles and be pragmatic when needed. 

Gerrard needs to get the balance right.

I wouldnt know how.much they have spent tbh ,but I know.for.sure we should be getting better for the money we have spent in transfer fees alone never mind massive wage budget increase 

Not if they're spending double what we are across 2 windows and from their perspective they should be winning a treble. The last time they spent what we spent in a season they finished on 87 points, a tally we can easily still reach, so we are technically getting better for our money if we match or surpass that.

I don't even think there's a particular lack of physical strength in the side. None of the defenders are weak men physically, Davis arguably the only weak midfielder, few if any forwards in the country stronger than Morelos and so on. They've run over the scum physically in 3 or 4 of the last 5 odd games. It's mental strength primarily and a good chunk need rid of because they mentally can't cope with the demands at the club not because they don't have the skill or physicality.

When we were moving the ball quickly, pressing all over the park and wining it back and the buff was on form no team looked as though they were bullying us up until the break , all they 3 things have stopped that’s the problem

Everything about style of play has changed dramatically. Don't even remember the last time we looked like that domestically.

😄Am I the only one that wanted to put a consoling arm around him after watching the RTV video?? Guy was obviously hurting. I desperately want it to work here for him. 

It’s the players fault mate not him , apart from the Ojo fiasco , don’t get his thinking on that one

It makes no sense mate , players have let us down big time in my opinion 

There haven't even been any vague resemblance to the things you mentioned. We rarely close down in packs like we used to. It was so effective as well. I don't know how he gets us back to that.

Between that interview and Kent's remarks about the overwhelming tension and pressure domestic games bring, it's very concerning. The pressure and tension is only going to increase tenfold next season.

I'm a bit worried it's not just his head that's gone.

TBF, Gerrard is probably the best we'll get, but NO one is stopping ten in a row with the resources we have available.

With that speech yesterday, he has done himself no favours and backed himself into a corner.

Agree with the second part of that.  I think we are within our rights to expect a much better record against the teams we have dropped points against though so don’t think stopping them is impossible.

Barasic will get us a decent amount of cash. We need to improve the squad and I don’t think Barasic would play second fiddle to anyone, Tav might.

So just to make sure I've got this correct you are saying sell barasic and get someone better? Fuck me the lunatics really have taken over!!
