  1. I guess Kent has still got another 3 or 4 years until he potentially hits his peak, although like many players/wingers of his style I can see him being a player that might struggle with consistency throughout his career. If he gets into double figures for goals this season that'd be a good season, not sure what he's on at the min 5 or 6 goals?? I think we'll be looking to cash in on him in the summer, great business if we get £20m for him.
  2. As per the title, I'm looking for a decent canvas print of Ibrox at a reasonable price. Was wondering if anyone can recommend a company that does them? Thanks in advance
  3. We need a performance from Kent today, don't buy this 'he's trying too hard' notion - trying hard is a given...we need our big players to step up.
  4. Lennon knows they have to win, so they have to be on the front foot, but he'll also know he can't trust his keeper/defence when they're under pressure. This all plays into our hands - i really do think if we play our usual game we win. If we lose i think it'll be an individual error or a goal out of nothing.
  5. They were obviously going to start winning again but i still think their frailtiies at the back are still there - with Barkas likely to be in goal and their weaknesses at centre back the stage is set for Kent, Roofe and Morelos to run riot. We have to get on the front foot from the start, they do still have quality going forward and as much as he is a rat - Griffiths seems to make a big difference for them. Turnbull is obv dangerous with his shooting, but if we control possession we limit his opportunities. As someone else mentioned, first goal is massive on Saturday - if we get it i think the

  7. The level of consistency required to win the league now is higher than its probably ever been given the gulf in finance/class between Us / them and the rest of the league. Still don't think celtic have resolved any issues, so will drop more points. If we go into the next old firm at least 5 points ahead, i think thats a big step to winning the league. Our midfield is still our weakness in terms of creativity and goals, Arfield has stepped up but can he keep it going? Think we will continue scoring goals, but want Roofe to really cement his place by bagging the goals to win the title - looks li
  8. We were not going to go through the season unbeaten. We should be beating St Mirren, that was a brilliant opportunity to get into a semi final, for a trophy we'd be strong favourites to win. We lost though, simple as that. No point crying/having a meltdown over it, we put it behind us and keep blowing away teams in the league and the title could be as good as ours by the end of January. I think we'll probably draw a game between now and the celtic game, just by the law of averages a bad result will be coming in the league, but even if/when that does happen we're still in a great position and w
  9. Gutted at tonight's result, but its now about how we respond to this set back...the 4 games up to the celtic game are massive now...win all 4 and imo i believe we beat celtic and win the league. Lose any games or drop points and suddenly the pressure will mount and we're in a title race, no doubt about it celtic will have been given a shot in the arm from this result tonight but still rather be in our position than theirs.
  10. Seems a good boxer Pulev but don't see him as a big puncher, or out boxing Joshua so think Joshua takes him out 6-8 rounds...Heavyweight boxing tho, so one punch changes everything
  11. Ha, good spot...I meant Ross Wilson...Always wondered what the story was behind Allen leaving, but either way its worked out well, turned out a great appointment getting Wilson
  12. I think Gerrard, McAllister and the rest of the management/backroom team have to be applauded for the level our squad is at and the results we're getting. Mark Allen has obviously done a great job in identifying players - looks like another gem in Itten ! What our squad is doing is obviously built around a strategy and system that everyone is bought into. We're keeping clean sheets, playing teams off the park - long may it continue 👍
  13. Would love to see Kent, Itten, Roofe front line against Dundee Utd, each of them offers something different and all on form. A few games for Alfie kicking his heels on the bench won't do him any harm and will make him hungrier for goals.
  14. Hopefully we'll see Itten start against Poznan, def looks like there's a player there from the small cameos he's had.
  15. Its a interesting debate...I feel with our current team/squad we can go toe to toe with most teams and have a system of play where we can now interchange players. 2008 team were based on a solid defence, as is 2020, who did have some luck getting to the Uefa Cup final. I do think, as much as he is a legend, Smith was too defensive minded at times - we never really had the firepower in the 2008 team that we do now.
