*****The Official Champions v's Brondby Match Thread*****


Recommended Posts

This is an enourmous game in all senses of the word. Losing our first two games, really need to start picking up some wins to have any chance of advancing to the next round. Don't know a ton about Brondby but gotta think we have the better talent, just gotta show up on the day.

As in the OP I can see Roofe being put into the lineup but other than that the same as v Hearts for me. Hopefully we get it done.

Not really sure how I’d like us to progress. 
 

1st place is gone so would we rather 2nd and more than likely play a better team than Lyon in a play off or 3rd and get to the last 8 at least of the conference league? 
 

Either way for those two scenarios we need to buck up our ideas. 
 

Hoping for a performance and a result, our 18th competitive game of the season, hopefully we grab this one by the scruff of the neck for a change

Must win game, although the league form/importance is starting to override much feeling towards this game now.  

If we don't get a win I'd sack the competition completely and focus solely on the league 

That’s my concern at the moment too, St Mirren is now a massive game, as is all of our domestic games but we can’t let our domestic form drop off a cliff at the expense of this especially if we don’t get a win

It's a must win game. Drop points and our European run will be a  failure. That could knock the seemingly fragile confidence of the players and have an adverse impact on leauge performances.

We are favourites and I think it will be a tight game that we will win by one goal. Morelos has to stop missing sitters and make an impact and we will have to stay focused for the full 90 minutes.

Sick of thinking the team are going to wake up in each coming match.

The first half against hearts and parts of the second half against hibs suggests we might be getting better but we need 70+ mins of good football, a +2 goal difference win and a clean sheet and maybe we’ll see the corner finally turned.

I’ve felt quite a bit of apathy towards the game which will hopefully change on matchday, been the case since the end of the Hearts game on Saturday.
Could be because we’ve been in the tournament for a couple years now and it isn’t a glamour tie.

Team news:-

Rangers: No new injury concerns after weekend draw with the salt & sauce wankers, but the game comes too soon for Ryan Kent. Kemar Roofe may be added to the starting 11 having been rested at the weekend after international travel. 

Brondby: Who fuckin cares, they're taking on the Champions, and it's time to get our European season started. 

'Mon Rangers, intae these cunts!!!!

👍

If Kamara is suspended? Then Davis, I dont see Arfield starting , prefer Roofe to start instead , Scotty on the bench.

Most people probably feel like that. After the CL draw I feel like everyone thought we’d be playing CL football, including the management and players. Europe feels like a long continuous hangover from that tie. 
 

Fact is the EL is our level and we should be looking to improve every season and give ourselves a reputation of being a constant feature of the knock out stages. 
 

Apart from next season if we win the league, we’ll be playing EL football for probably every single season once the CL changes are brought in

2nd all day long. Better revenue and coefficient points. For finishing second in the group we get 2 bonus points. Additional bonus point available for last 16 and QFs, bonus points only kick in at the SFs of ECL.

For making EL last 16 you get £1.7m, ECL last 16 is 900k. We would also have the full higher market share in EL knockouts as scum look like finishing 3rd.

Last 32 CL teams are not going to be superior to Lyon either. Club Brugge, Porto, Sporting, Sheriff, Zenit. Nobody in Group F is superior to Lyon either, could also be Benfica and Villarreal. 

Teams that obviously can beat us and would on current form, but hopefully by February we will have our act together!

There are dangerous sides in ECL that we could draw in the last 32 such as Spurs/Rennes or Feyenoord/Racist FC. Not to mention Napoli or Leicester could drop down there, PSV/Monaco or Sociedad as well.

Europa League last 16 will have more overall higher standard of sides, but there will be some sides in the last 16 of ECL that are superior than many in the EL last 16.

An absolute must win here, or we’d be needing snookers to qualify. 

I fancy us for the win. Blow losing Kamara, but what can you do… 

McGregor

Tav Goldson Balogun Barisic

Lundstram Davis

Roofe Hagi Sakala

Morleos
