  1. I think so much of what we are seeing is down to tactics. Zungu looks to me as if he wants to surge forward but is restricted by our desire to keep possession and pass it along the back line. I love the way we have been playing this season but these last few games, since Dundee United, we have not found it so easy. On Wednesday in the earlier stages, both Davis and Barasic repeatedly played it sideways or backwards and oddly Helander had more of the ball and was the one to probe. He for me usually is the sideways man almost to the extent that you must always give the ball to Goldson.
  2. Well I will go against the flow. I think there is something there. Too early to condemn him to the 'useless' pile. I seem to recall Tavernier coming in for stick and the same with Arfield and Davis. I know he wasn't great v St Mirren giving the odd stray pass but in the last game, Davis and Kamara were slow starters giving the ball away. Mistakes happen (ask Goldson). There is time yet to see how he pans out and I wish him well.
  3. Hagi did make a difference, along with the other subs, but it was made for him. It was all about attack and he had no defensive duties or the need for mixing it with the opposition. Not knocking the guy, just saying the situation played to his strengths so credit to Gerrard for deploying him at the right time.
  4. I think any money put into C1872 is pretty safe, think there are rules etc governing their activity. Only thing is, you are putting your trust in a Board to represent you, you give up your individual right but that is where C1872 will get their strength. The reason I asked my earlier questions was to ascertain if they are professional and pro active. This is a massive step and opportunity. If they have been working on it behind the scenes for a while, I would expect existing members to be fully engaged and up to speed and equally for their organisation to have plans in place to promote th
  5. I'm guessing that there are Forum readers out there that are also members of C1872. Can I please ask a couple of questions? Having just listened to the Laura Fawkes interview with Clyde 1 on the previous page (she sounded OK, positive and upbeat) she states that they have been in discussions behind the scenes with 'Dave' for sometime about acquiring his shareholding. She also describes the current activity as a campaign and are hopeful of building on current club positivity to secure the required 20000+ additional Legacy Members necessary to raise over £13m. Prior to the big announce
  6. Chris Jack's article in the Glasgow Times, if it helps? https://www.glasgowtimes.co.uk/sport/18915576.amp/?ref=twtrec&__twitter_impression=true
  7. Sorry, failed to answer your question. I believe that any key issues will be put to a vote and majority will rule. From what I see, the C1872 Directors, Laura Fawkes, Euan McFarlane and Joanne Percival will be responsible for overseeing implementation. These guys are elected by the members and serve for three years. I agree that it calls for someone with experience and knowledge to be in these positions but that's where you have to trust the membership. It becomes even more pertinent if the fans ever get a place at the rich man's table (main football club board).
  8. Morning. I fully understand what you are saying here and it is questions like this and ones from JCDBig Bear and Sweetheart that leads me to be suggesting that clarification is required to help us rank and file supporters understand what is involved and how the future will look. There are some answers on the C1872 website if you look and I would suggest checking the FAQ's section and also the bit on Legacy. As I see it, Dave King has made the decision to sell his shares to C1872 as a collective supporters body wishing to see Rangers fans have a say in the future running of the footb
  9. Thanks and yes I do realise what buying into C1872 means. Please note though that I am not advocating any particular route here. What I do believe is that more explicit information is required from both C1872 and the football club itself. This thread has already highlighted lots of mixed messages and misunderstandings. Joining C1872 and making a Legacy Donation puts funds in their coffers allowing them we believe to purchase cheap shares ( in 2021) from Dave King. If they secure all shares as touted C1872 would as of today be the major shareholder. Currently they have no place on the Boar
  10. Great discussion and Hadron Collider is right about business acumen - in all areas. I think more clarification is required before fans can make a balanced decision. Apart from the Dave King announcement have Club 1872 come out on their own to address the issue and make it clear what their plans and methodology is for securing the funds or are they relying on folk going to their website. Equally, it would be good to hear from the Rangers Directors regarding this suggestion, do they support it as King says and are they willing to give C1872 a place on the Board. C1872 is I believe a support
