Wes looked shaky every kick of ball, good shot stopper. Full backs were terrible, our wide players constantly covering them (not doing a great job either) our centre midfield (offer no creativity) were allowing runners past them all game - so disappointed with Dorrans. No support for morelos at all. As far as Pena - he's a junior player.

Funny that you slag off Pena for being shit but dont slag off Morelos, because he had no support... They both had the exact same problem. Pena had no outball most of the time.. when he did, he did nothing wrong.

 

Fair point. Pena just looked off the pace to me and I just cant see what he brings. Morelos wasn't great but I can at least see the potential

Wes, Pena, Hodson and Dorrans shite

I don't think Dorran's was "shite".  He has a lot of work to do in that midfield and we're far more competitive in there now.  Jack and Dorran's are a huge step up on the shite from last season.

I don't think Tav was a big problem today. Defensively he had a couple of weak moments but lots of full backs do in the modern game. He's a good attacking outlet and it's up to the likes of Candeias and our holding mids to assist when required which I thought they did well enough today.

 

Hodson was very poor left side, he's just not good enough for this level and needs to go. I'd rather play Danny Wilson at left back, seriously ! 

 

Although McCrorie did extremely well I felt we misssed the leadership of Alves, the Davie Weir factor that glues the whole back four together.

 

overall though, no real scapegoat for me. We currently lack the squad depth to cope with two defensive injuries (Alves & Wallace) and over the next two transfer windows we need to invest in more quality in final third as that's the widest gap between us and celtic.

Dorrans. A lifelong die hard Rangers fan who knows what it's about and he has the honour of captaining the team out in his first Old Firm game and once again fails to turn up.

We have a player like that and shipped him out to Azerbaijan for a year.

This. Dorrans is absolutely pish. Cunt can fuck off back to England.

I hate picking on players and very rarely do so but Tavernier should never play right back for us again, play him as cover for right mid, never a defender and his ability to put us into trouble by not doing the simple things is astounding.

Get him to fuck out of the club. Get him to fuck out of the country! As per my post on another thread. This shyster not only has very limited ability he's a fucking coward of the worst sort. Takes no responsibility for fuck all .

The most over rated player at Ibrox and his fucking rim lickers in want a serious fucking word with thenselves!

If he remains, we lose as we will never be good enough with fucking chancers like him in our jersey.

?? fuck sake, start a bullshit thread like this and pick out the total wrong option. Hodson was awrite though aye? Dorrans play a blinder? Morelos worked the back line to perfection?

The whole team lost, despatched in the wrong shape (not a slight, we lacked the players to play much else) and we seemingly haven't worked on our weaknesses at all. Most of all we played a team with better players, resources and finances.

To try and assign the entire blame to a player who actually had a decent game is laughable.

What did Jack contribute to the game?

The were numerous times in the first half he took control of a hot ball in a tight area and worked his way out to give us breathing space to start building an attack...albeit it was rarely actually an attack due to the dross around him.

That's what he is there to do imho and first half he did it very well

This is a complete myth, step up in what regard? Certainly not on performances or results.

Said for a couple of years on here how overrated Dorrans was and people are now seeing it with their own eyes, as for Ryan all I can do is pass sidewards, he's one of the most overrated players we've ever had. Offers nothing, doesn't protect the defence nor does he make these 'big tackles' that everyone slabbers over. There's a reason why he was the weakest midfielder for Aberdeen.

How people rate Jack and claim he does his job, been fantastic etc, astounds me. Puts in performances that Holt and Halliday got slated for.

Both show potential... I suppose it just depends how you approach the two players. Most people wrote Pena off without him having played any minutes and that, in my opinion, affects the way they see him in the games. He didnt do anything wrong, in my humble opinion, of course, but he didnt get any help what so ever.. wings were called upon too often to defend and it left Pena in the middle of the park with Morelos sligthly up the park.. Some of his creativity almost came off a couple of times. He also showed fight and wasnt afraid to get stuck in. 

Wrongly written off in this game for me.

The way Pena weights some of his passes is excellent. There's definitely a player in there but we're a long way from seeing the finished article.
