One things for sure we need to change something, freshen things up because we look stale as fuck at the moment

I don’t know if it needs a new system or new personnel/different lineups but we need something to inject a bit of life into us. Gerrard always talks about reactions to bad performances but I’ve rarely seen a reaction from this group 

It looks to me like the filth are trying to play full throttle football, whereas we try to play measured 2nd gear stuff. Our approach is great when we need a degree of control but not always great if we are chasing goals.

Tonight we controlled it for the most part but our lack of drive means it was always going to be nervy if we didn’t score.

Tiny margins. If Alfredo had scored even one of his sitters, and one of Aribos shots that hit the woodwork went in, people would be talking about the game completely differently.

Hopefully that's all the bad luck out the way, when it doesn't matter, and the taigs used all theirs up tonight. Jammy bastards that they are.

Arfield also 2 good chances.

When Morelos has too much time to think, he fucks it up a lot of the time. I actually thought the winning goal in this tie at Ibrox was lucky. He almost waited too long.

With 96 goals he is obviously a great goal scorer but mostly through instinct and without time to think. That is why I would never fancy him to score a penalty.

He was off form tonight. Even at the end when he took it into the corner to waste time, he ended up passing it straight to their keeper. 

I expect him to bounce back on Sunday.

Namely?

McCoist scored against Steaua Bucharest, Dinamo Kiev and Leeds at a time when they were their country's respective champions.

What team has Morelos played and scored against who had a better pedigree than those 3 teams, especially that Leeds team from the 90s?

Also, Morelos is absolutely nowhere near the player McCoist was.

McCoist and Morelos have relatively similar stats  in terms of goals for Rangers at the same age in a 4 year period.  McCoist 103 in 181 games.  Morelos  94 in 182 games.    In Europe in the same period McCoist 3 goals in 15 games whilst Morelos 23 in 45 games.      At that stage McCoist hadn't scored against the three teams you have named.   Morelos scored against Feyenoord, Porto, Benfica none of which are light-weights.   They are different types of player in different eras.

The only sitter was the one-on-one with the keeper.  He should have buried that.  The other chance in the first half was a half chance but nowhere near a sitter.  The one in the second half, if you mean the longish high ball beyond the back post, was also only a half chance, one where you might score or you might miss.

I was more disappointed with Arfield and his pretty much free hit.

Need to sort the defence out for me, Goldson playing abso terrible, Borna played as expected with no games behind him, mid and attack were good, Alfredo coulda scored 3, Aribo twice hitting the sticks.
