Would seriously be considering trying to move on Itten and bring in Nisbet.

Nesbit is far the better player and we could have got him cheaply last summer. Will cost money now. 

I got shot down for suggesting that last week from a few.

Surprised roofe is taking loads of criticism tonight, actually thought he was one of our better players. 
Touch at times sublime but decision making not on same wavelength, not worried one bit about him.

I think he'd be worth the £3m they apparently want.

Thought he had a quiet game for the most part but showed some real quality at times. If Wright scored with his through ball everyone would probably be raving about him.

Roofe is a good player. Some of his touches and movements stand out but that was the wrong decision at the end.

Because he cost us two points by not passing to Patterson and killing the game

chronic first half from Rangers the passing just didn't improve at all as the half went on the defending was woeful especially not helped by poor distribution from further upfield.

 

Second half slightly better nice pass & move for the goal but they should have been out of sight afterwards as the subs came on the play got better in terms of passing & running off the ball against a really horrid side full of wannabe cunts aided & abetted by a trio of officials who haven't a fucking clue behind the play or just not on it in terms of the tactics from that bunch of diving bastards they were more intent in awarding fouls & free kicks against our players which were either nothing or exaggerated contact.

 

clearly bottled it on the first penalty only the linesman appeared to make the clown change his mind as for the second one unbelievable how that was considered a penalty.

The officials are so far off the pace in terms of 5 teams tactics week in week out in this league its beyond parody but needs addressed SG should really take these clowns to task as that tonight just isn't good enough you can talk about game management from players but it can easily be argued there were just as many misplaced passes within that 4-5 minute spell of added on time that could've caused them to equalise same within the 90 mins especially first half where Rangers were continually giving the bloody ball away putting themselves in trouble time and again.

Annoyed it wasn't wrapped up before their equaliser I just hope we smash them in the cup game as they are a truly fucking horrendous outfit who would get football shut down with their shitty approach to the game.

I’m not going to get too upset about it, was stupid but rather last night than Sunday.

For me glen kamara made a stupid decision after we equalised at st Mirren in the cup by trying an eye of the needle pass edge of our own box that few secs later led to there corner and goal, it happens but feel we can move on from this one a bit easier.

Lot of changes, nothing much at stake and another clown of a ref but we aren’t quite there yet in terms of a squad if we had injuries in key areas.

No doubt the squad depth has improved but Gerrard does need to add just a bit more quality if we are to build on this.

Surprised at the criticism of Itten as well. Whilst he’s featured in a lot of games, very few have been starts & trying to find your feet, particularly in Scotland, needs a good year to settle in - just look at Borna. 

And yet... despite that, he’s scored arguably the most crucial goal in the season, in the 3-1 win over Motherwell just a few days after losing to St Mirren. 

He’s still young(ish), had a prolific season in Switzerland and a full Swiss international. 

Challenge for him is that he has Morelos infront of him but I’ve absolutely no doubt he’ll be a success.

Worth watching Gerrard’s post match interview on RTV where he doesn’t hide how little he cared about tonight. 

I totally agree! Obviously I want to win every game but there is no extra prize for going a full season unbeaten. Sunday is an important game for us, tonight was not and Gerrard basically said the same in his interview

I can only really remember Itten starting 4 games tops and the majority of the time he’s came on in the last 10 minutes if he’s lucky. 
 

I like him, we can’t solely rely on him if Morelos goes, but I don’t think he should be written off. If he gets more full games I’d bet he’s probably worth about 15 goals a season at least

Hes started 9 games in all competitions.

Dead rubber split games are always like this. Apart from the 5-5 at Hibs can’t really remember an exciting game.

Na mate he’s terrible, worse than Herrera and it’s bewildering why he was signed

Yep. It’s not just that few have been starts either, most of his sub appearances lately have seen him get less than 10 minutes.

He’s only going to develop if he gets more starts in his main position.

Disappointing result with a vastly changed team - Definitely affected our game in the first half where we were very disjointed.

From reading the last few comments above I don’t think Roofe has looked sharp since his recurring ankle/Achilles issue and was well off the pace against Slavia when he came on and has done little since (celtic/St Johnstone) to improve. There’s no doubt with time/pre season under his belt he has a lot to offer us in the future.

Can’t quite understand the criticism of Itten? Runs his heart out every time he plays, uses his height well and puts his body on the line. Biggest issue is game time - 5mins here and there isn’t the answer and we are trying to play him off the main striker like Kent/Hagi and that’s not his game. Would like to see him getting a run through the middle to see how he does.

Without being overly critical especially after the season we have had I would be more frustrated with Hagi - Thought he was poor lastnite and never seems to take his opportunity when he does get a start.

I don’t think people are ‘bewildered’ as to why he was signed or that he’s ‘worse than Herrera’. Not many have said anything like that. 

Some have said that they don’t think he’ll make it here or that he hasn’t done enough in the minutes he’s had. Both of which I agree with. 

Morelos drives me insane at points, but if we had Itten and Roofe as our starting two I’m not sure we’d have 55 in the bag right now.
