People need to calm down.

Completely get the sentiment but standards still shouldn't ever drop, they drew yesterday and we fucked it today.  We need to get this wrapped up ASAP.

The leagues done we won't lose it from here but we need some fresh blood as a chunk of our starting 11 are feeling it.  Need to punt Zungu, Jones and Edmundson and bring in genuine first team qua

Getting the feeling that it's just excuse making tbh. 

Everybody's delighted with the way things are progressing in the league which is the #1 aim this season of all seasons, but still doesn't get away from the fact that our record in the cups is utterly embarrassing. 

Reckon we should play in the Portuguese Cup,Win that a canter 😂

The cups have been awful, there's no argument from me. But I've not really expected us to win any until this season you've expected us to win them all since Gerrard came in. I've said all along its the league that matters with cups as bonus. Gerrard was always getting this season from me, you wanted him sacked as he didnt win it both of his 1st 2 seasons in a 4 year contract.

Its always been about rate of progression. This year it'll come good which I'm sure we'll all be delighted by, even those who said he was a failure, bottler and deserved the bullet when their expectations weren't really realistic.

That cup game we lost to a team that had James Wilson and he was replaced by Stevie May.

Does help when we shat the bed against the likes in Aberdeen and Hearts

I'm not defending our cup performances. They're abysmal. But I also didn't have them all as cups I expected us to win. Nor did I place them any where near as important as the league.

If Gerrard won cups but failed in the league this year his time would be up for me.

Aribo isn't suitable as one of the front 3. Hes playing poorly in midfield, my point was he's not a sitting midfielder.

Agreed re Kent.

I'm not adverse to others like Itten getting a chance. Defoe too in certain games. But Bassey and Zungu really disappointed in the cup. Others like Barker offer even less.

Its tough when full backs so crucial to our system and the flair players dip in form at the same time as 3 kep players being out. We can't cope easily with 3 out and even more than that deserving to be dropped. So yeah bring itten in on Saturday, but no way should we change systems.

As i said when someone asked me, id start itten up top, morelos and hagi off him at the others of the front 3, and id play Zungu instead of aribo, the cup game is harsh on both bassey and zungu as they all didnt play well, bassey was sold short by kent for their penalty, zungu struggled as the whole team was all over the place, 

Same system but putting players in that maybe feel more comfortable in their roles

Both you and forever and ever's arguments are correct unbelievably

Prove I expected us to win every trophy available since Gerrard came in. 

I wanted him sacked because COVID-19 saved his job, that very well may be a hard pill for people to swallow considering the position we're in atm, but let's not kid on how bad we were before last season got cancelled. Obviously I'm delighted with the vast improvement since and more than happy to have been proved wrong so far. 

How is it not realistic to expect a domestic cup trophy win out of five attempts thus far? If that's being outwith the realms of possibility your own standards and ambition for this club have obviously plummeted.

Are you saying you didn't want us to win every competition available since Gerrard came in?

Pretty controversial tbh.

You have literally said we should always be expecting to win.

Your words are the proof you expected us to win unless always means not always.

Yes, expecting and wanting are two different things, I'd love us to win the treble every single season but that's not going to happen is it?

We're not discussing wanting, you amended that.

You said we should always expect to win. Then asked me to prove you expected us to win every trophy.

Do you always expect us to win as you say we should? Or do you not despite saying we should?

I said we should always be expecting to win trophies in response to your post saying anybody wanting a trophy in his first season "were at it". 

Do you not understand what context means?

I understand fine.

I said folk were at it if expecting (not hoping or wanting) us to win trophies in Gerrards 1st season. I explained my thoughts on why. You came across all uber saying we should ALWAYS be expecting to win trophies. 

Now you appear confused and don't seem to always expect to win all trophies. 

You're saying lots of words without clarity. That has nothing to do with context.

Gerrards 1st season you've responded to my thoughts, gave a reply you likely thought sounded good, but challenged me to prove your own argument.

Gerrards 1st season- what did you expect us to win?

Don't know how people can just write off not winning cups.

People say that until we get dumped out of them and then it suddenly matters. Same thing happens in Europe too. I’ve lost count of how many times people have said they don’t care, or don’t see Europe, as a priority and yet when we don’t win they end up being some of the most vocal people about it.

I've never said we should be expecting to win all trophies. 

First season for any Rangers manager he has to win something, always been the case and always will yet here we are almost 3 years down down the line with nothing to show for it yet, though that will hopefully change in the coming months. 

Don't win things you're not here for long, just the way it is.

Mostly agree but all the money is in Europe. Needs to be a balancing act between doing well enough in Europe whilst winning everything domestically.

Why cant it be both, everyone knows the most money made in europe is the group stages, all domestic cups finish after the group stages have been entered, nothing stopping both happening
