  1. Celtic are not going into admin. The only reason we did is because we had a criminal in charge who specifically sought to put us in that situation, even with all our liabilities and debts. They're not run by people with malicious intentions and it would take ridiculous levels of incompetence for anything like that to happen. They are in a precarious situation though and may need to downsize. Their entire model relies on CL money or large player sales. If they can't make the group stages or make Tierney level sales every year they're going to post significant losses and need to get the wa
  2. He's one of the main reasons why we do so well. He drops deep to drag defenders out of position, creating space for Kent and Roofe, and all three of them interchange. Meanwhile Arfield or Aribo break beyond him, while the full backs attack the space left by Kent and Roofe. He's playing a selfless, thankless role that doesn't get him a lot of goals but makes the team so much better - Firmino with Liverpool is probably the cliche comparison. Playing like this is bringing out new qualities in him without it being well-suited to him, if that makes sense. On the one hand he's becoming far more
  3. He's clearly progressed as a manager throughout his time here, we've clearly progressed a hundredfold in the past three years year on year, this season has been almost perfect - but it's easy to forget that Gerrard is still learning, particularly at the level Benfica represent. That quality of team is a challenge he hasn't faced with us. He tends to default to Rafa Benitez tactics, which on the whole set us up for success in Europe, but it also means he can be overly cautious. He seemingly doesn't make subs because he doesn't want to upset the team or change things up in case it backfires.
  4. Clearly we were worried about them and there was maybe a little bit of anxiety once they start looking more dangerous in the 2nd half. Clearly something to work on. Results like this are always useful for successful, winning sides if it helps them refocus and analyse where improvements can still be made. That said Benfica are a fucking good side. They'd expose the weaknesses of all but the top teams in Europe. They'd beat the Orcs comfortably without breaking a sweat.
  5. It'd be ridiculous to be too angry about tonight - the only reason we're even at this point excelling in Europe and outplaying teams like Benfica is because of the job Gerrard has done. This is a Champions League level side who have spent over £100m. They're really good, even when off form. That said, we've lost a 2 goal twice now, and the decision not to make subs was absolutely bizarre. Jorge Jesus changed the game when he made his and Benfica looked far more lively - and we tried to sit deep to compensate, even though we're at our best when pressing from the front. Learning experi
  6. Gerrard has been outdone here. They've changed the game with 5 subs and Gerrard seems too fearful to make even one.
  7. The more I watch him, the more I ponder one of life's enduring mysteries: How the fuck was Glen Kamara only at Dundee?
  8. Both teams should be. I genuinely believe this Rangers team would do well in the CL as well.
  9. Alfie is really causing them problems dropping deep here. We're doing really well here. Very well organised. Just need to concentrate and cut out any sloppiness- they're good enough to take advantage of just one mistake.
  10. These cunts are going mental over being behind in November with two games in hand and three Old Firm games left. Imagine if they'd had to lose away to Alloa or cup finals to Raith. 85% of them would have probably ended it and their club would cease to exist. This last decade of uninterrupted success against no genuine opposition has somehow ruined them even more. They got complacent and even more unable to deal with any sort of struggle or difficulty whatsoever.
  11. You know what supporting us is like at the moment? It's like a Football Manager career save once you're a few seasons in and it's all easy. Your team is playing shit hot football, you're thrashing every team you play, you always keep clean sheets, you have that one random player who is scoring every week and is so OP he has broken the game, but you still get irrationally very angry about that one time when you didn't win or conceded 3 goals to Benfica away. I fucking love life right now. Covid forever if I get to see this Rangers every game.
  12. It's the hair. You just know the guy must be a cunt. He's ridiculously fast but doesn't know what to do with the ball beyond run with it and shoot. Sounds familiar.
  13. The same one as you. He's not scoring goals because he is playing more as a false 9, dropping deeper and creating space for Kent, Aribo, Roofe interchanging and Arfield making the run beyond. His work off the ball is great and is contributing to how brilliant we've been. However his build up play wasn't great and he made more than just two slack passes which resulted in potentially dangerous counter attacks. He needs to cut that out. I'm a big fan of Morelos but there has still been a noticeable difference in his performances in Europe compared to domestically. That might be because
  14. I don't want to take credit but I only wear my Rangers top when we play. Every time I've worn it we've won. Just saying.
