  1. That's absolutely not my point. Well done.
  2. It's maybe just me but I kinda hate having this thread floating about constant like its a sevco thread on any of the other teams in the SPL's forums. If he does well start new threads each time after each game, but this just attracts negativity and like it's a focused thread on him, which we don't need, in this environment.
  3. Score line was more uncomfortable than I’d usually like but we were comfortable all game and many, many levels above that shite. a quality finish for them (I know McGregor should have done better) and a whole host of chances passed up by us made it look a hunner times closer than it actually was perfect game management bringing Itten on for Morelos who held it up well and gave us another wee dimension in final third Morelos really fucking lucky he never cost us - thank fuck the ref booked him so there’s no comeback on it. Idiotic. I love him but I think he under estimates what that could actually cost us with so much at stake. honestly don’t think we played bad at all just passing up chances, a United screamer and stubborn United tactics makes it seem worse on the surface
  4. I'm not disagreeing but none of that is my point (apart from the last point which I just said myself in my last post) - all I'm saying is that given what went on at the PSG game, maybe Goldson misheard too? I don't know... I'm not downplaying it, I'm just playing devil's advocate. It deserves to be investigated but if there's no evidence there, do we all just jump on the woke card because it's a Rangers player? If it's proven to be something bad then throw the book at him. I do think it's a man's game and some of this stuff we're subjected to in modern football is OTT but if that's how it is, then, if proven, there's no way I'm having our players treated differently. We already see that when Morelos is racially abused ffs - the papers and fans of other clubs say he brings it on himself.
  5. Aye agreed. We were talking about this last week watching the Ross County game. He's a long way back. It was about 4-weeks ago he suffered a "setback" and now it looks like another one. Without sounding like a medical expert (because I'm not) but I'm assuming that once the swelling goes, he get's strength & mobility back he get's assessed and starts some light training like jogging then gradually into training with a programme to get built back up. Even if he's fully recovered and fit to play, which he isn't, he's a long way to get match fit after surgery, 3 months (as it stands, and counting) out. He's ages away from even training yet. Celtic's fitness regimes seem to be notorious atm anyway. Griffiths' came on for a game the other week and had a belly that would put most guys in their 50's on here to shame and Tunrbull's been unfit for months too apparently. Forrest will start making cameo's for match fitness final month or two of the season, probably.
  6. Good wee Forrest has suffered another setback on recovery from his injury and misses our game too he’s a match winner for them
  7. Dunno thought it was for mouthing refs do it all the time tbh the fact the refs heard something and acted would indicate that’s not as serious as made out I dunno tbh but if it was something bad there can’t be a cover up whether you think we live in too offended times or not doesn’t matter it can’t be one rule for us and another for everyone else
  8. Maybe I’m wrong but I thought I read him saying he was going on what his player told him
  9. Maybe he didn't say anything though tbh. Just because it's Rangers and an opposition team doesn't mean it's automatically a stitch-up or been wronged. I think Gardyne said he called him a fanny - could Goldson have heard it as "fairy" with the accent Gardyne's got? Gerrard himself is only going on what he was told was said, rather than hearing anything himself. Suppose only Gardyne will ever know but that nonsense midweek in the PSG game when that he thought he heard the 4th official call him a negro got me thinking about this too where all this stuff is so hot just now, people hear and see it everywhere - even if they don't mean to. Just my 2p worth. I could also be wrong and he called Goldson a faggot or whatever. I'm just sceptical in this day and age what passes for offense and conjecture etc.
  10. Probably was March he left - I'm that used to transfer windows now I keep thinking he left in January half way through the season.
  11. Good thread. Mikel Arteta - felt sorry for him. When Ferguson left he was left in a midfield with utter dug shite and trying to carry us in games. In the end it looked like he downed tools but he never really. He was doing too many jobs and nothing was coming off for him. Was one of the classiest players I've ever seen at us. He had a good career when he left. Duncan Ferguson - another I felt sorry for. Loved the big man. He was actually just hitting the form we waited for before he left but the way the SFA and Scotland in general hung him out to dry was disgusting. His heart wasn't in it (and I don't blame him). Daniel Cousin - I know he didn't do THAT much of note after he left us but I thought he was a big bully and great for us in Scotland. Some finisher too. It was depressing he left after his man of the match in that 4-2 victory at Peado park. Left me feeling bittersweet the next day. Pedro Mendes - Another classy midfielder like Arteta was. He was sacrificed to pacify the banks. Kenny Miller (when he went to Bursaspor) - I genuinely thought we threw away the league doing that because we wanted to sell him and bring in Kris Commons but he rejected us and went to Celtic instead. Luckily it never cost us the way I thought it would. He was at his peak form in his career. Paul Gascoigne - my favourite ever Rangers player and selling him halfway through that failed 10 season contributed massively to our failure that season. We should never be a one man team but with the likes of it being a bridge too far that season for Goram, Gough, McCall, McCoist, I.Ferguson, Durie coupled with Negri chucking it and Laudrup with his heart/mind elsewhere we sold our only other real match winner. It hurt me when Davis, Whittaker, McGregor and Naismith all fucked off in 2012. But I'm trying to block that out and not really say too much on it. Can't say anything that's not been said anyway million times before. Wasn't too upset when Van Bronckhorst, Jelavic, Laudrup, Albertz all left. Jelavic I understood given the circumstances. Van Bronckhorst had a couple of great years with us and 8.5-million was good cash at the time. Albertz was a hero but we got back what he paid for him and something like 5 great years of great service. He was something like 32 too so it was a fair deal. Luadrup another hero but the failed 10 season we only seen him in flashes. He had run his course with us.
  12. Disgusted with myself that I now feel like a Romanian 4th official
