    Other than the 9m for Kent.

    Don’t hate the player.

    Because we're vastly overpaying him and want far, far more than anyone is willing to pay for a bog-average striker.

    Because they all feed into each other. Shite results in Europe (and the lack of finance that comes with it) = a big drop in £. A big drop in £ = a big drop in quality of players. A big drop in quality of players = no title challenge.

    No absolutely not. I think we're going to win the title fairly comfortably this season (not as easily as last) but ultimately, last season is over and done with and it's a whole new one.
    Totally agree with you on Europe. It's been fantastic in recent years - and I think the entire package (Europe, league, cups) is the only accurate way to measure a manager or player's success and Gerrard's European results have been his most consistent success here.

    Morelos should have put the result beyond doubt, but it was McGregor’s mistake which ultimately cost us two points.

    It's actually quite worrying seeing the whole list in full and realised how wide of the mark many of our signings have been.

    Why have you ignored McCoist's first two seasons at the club when he scored 8 then 12? Surely a more accurate comparison would be his first four v Morelos' first four rather than just picking any random four?
    83/84 - 8 in 30
    84/85 - 12 in 25
    85/86 - 25 in 33
    86/87 - 34 in 44
    Total - 79 goals

    Should be remembered Morelos doesn't take penalties which makes his record even more impressive.

    Aw ffs. We've got cunts sharing youtube videos telling international footballers and the club's record European goalscorer how to strike a ball
    Morelos' stats at Rangers - 197 games, 99 goals and 45 assists.

    CL group stage qualification I believe.

    I think overall it's been fine. You'll never get them all right and I'm sure most other teams (City, United, Liverpool, Arsenal, Spurs, Chelsea, Barcelona etc) for all their great signings will have similar or worse success stories to us.
    I guess it depends on what or how you view a success. I'm pretty sure the likes of Flanagan, Ojo, Ejaria etc for example would be deemed failures, and that's a fair take but Flanagan was solid enough most of the time (for a back up and a free) and Ojo and Ejaria were key in important European games. A few probably fall into that category.
    There's probably quite a few that just unfortunately didn't quite work overall for differing reasons, Murphy being one example. On paper it seemed decent. Just really unlucky with injuries. Most signings on paper seemed reasonable. There aren't too many from the list where I think, what the fuck is happening here. At varying times we just had to try to sign quantity, effectively back up players which is a tough market to get right.
    For me the key is where we are now. I think we've got a really strong first 11. I think our depth, certainly domestically is really strong and I think we have a number of assets, financially speaking. I'm certainly not one to try to sell off any of our better players but not so long ago it felt like it was a conveyor belt of just paying off players one after the other.

    I think the most concerning thing for me atm regarding signing policy is we clearly aren’t following the model we claim to be doing which is developing and selling on.
    We are quite quickly now heading towards a massive rebuild with very little return for players we have held on to for too long

    If the buck stops with him he better get his finger out his arse as there is some amount of utter dross on that list.

    Everything the manager has said since he stepped foot in the door is he has final say on transfers. Sporting director/DoF identifies targets and does negotiations but manager has final refusal on any incomings.

    When Kent is on form he’s unplayable but it’s 6 weeks of brilliance and then months of average performances and then another burst of brilliance.
    Kamara and Morelos have done it against the real top teams (Benfica, Porto etc) hence why i think they’ll go for the most.
