Rangers will be the dominant team in 5 years time in Scotland

As iv stated in an earlier thread, SDM wants to run Rangers as a business because it is a business like every other football club. Business's cant rely on one person all the time and have to be self sufficient and make profits otherwise in the long run it will fail or fall into the wrong hands.

This plan started a few years ago after the DA era and we moved into a period of recession with Eck and even PLG for whom most of us thought that was us coming out of this 'down sizing' period. We thought wrong and PLG never spent much probably because the money wasnt there.

But the key to this is that every club in the world goes through a volatile period of dominance in their own respect, not one team stays for decades as the top team. The Man United's, Real Madrid's, Barcalona's, Juventus's have all been big names since the year dot in football, but they go through 3-10 years of non-existance to the outside world. Which we are expercing at the moment.

Our trough situation is the opposite of the peak Celtic are expericing. their board has spent well in the last 2or 3 years, and have many players eating up their wage bill. Gravytrain is now employed as a bench warmer for £40 000 a week. Their squad is filled with £10 000 pw nobodies' who dont even make the bench. So when the time comes the Celtic board come to realise they cant afford this huge amount of money (its inevitable) in the long run (over 3-5years) they will do what we did:

Get rid of the big earners

Bring in unproven players

Bring up youth

The youth is my next point. Murray Park could be veiwed by some as a disastor so far since its failed to bring out many top class youth players. Is the tide turning now? Rory Loy, Fleck, Harvey etc seem to be turning into some smashing players and we get out desert's for them in 2 or 3 years. Not everyone training facility starts of producing the best youth in the world. Man United built a training complex in the 80's, and it took 4 or 5 years to get:

Giggs, Scholes, Beckham, Butt etc coming out and who totally dominated. My point is, there is evidence that the youth is turning in our favour.

Celtic on the other hand? Their training facility will be built in 2 years, and whos to say they dont suffer the same initial problems we have? Will it take them years to get a team, meanwhile we are powering on.

Im not saying we are expecting a team like Ajax had in the mid 90's, but the essence of a good youth team now and a young full time squad mix together in a few years time added with Celtic going backwards will make us the dominant force. Everyone here knows teams dont last forever, and big teams dont sit in the shadows forever. We will be back stronger than ever, we jsut need to suffer through this season first. Next season could be a good 50-50 scrap for the title, but after that...I think we'r plain sailing.

edit: looking at other teams in Scotland, Hearts announce a £30 mil debt today :rolleyes:

Given their assets, staility, price, players etc..thats like £60 million to us. Good luck Romanov.

As much as i hate to say it i dont think that is entirely true. You are making points that are valid regarding Rangers' youth set-up but you have failed to acknowledge the youth set-up at Sellick at present

Their reserve & u19 squads are very strong and stand them in good stead for the timescale you stated. Also they have invested in a bespoke training complex along the lines of Murray Park AND captured one of the finest talent spotters in the Country to head it up.

They will only get better with investment

Its impossible to predict what is going to happen, we just have to hope the calibre of player we breed and attract is better than theirs. At the end of the day that is the only way will dominate

Mate, you make some good points and the piece is well written.

However, we have to base our future on more than hope and kaos theory. Our club needs to be more imaginative, clever and efficient in the way it operates.

Yes, Celtic may well be experiencing a peak ahead of a trough but in many ways they deserve their success. We might not agree with the way they go about their business in some ways but they exploit business situations in a way we seem incapable of.

Again, yes, their new training facility is still 2 years away and there are no guarantees it will deliver success. But at the same time their youth teams have been superb for many years now and it would be wrong to think that better facilities might make them worse.

I think it's dangerous to think that Celtic might just start going backwards. At the minute there is absolutely no sign of that.

:shifty: also Celtic are very good at raising $$$$$ The MSL game and Nakamura Connection will bring them in the bucks and continue to raise their profile and sell shirts. We are extremely lacking on that front. Now that the EPL are going to be raking in even bigger bucket loads of cash we will have to adapt to that and realise we will go further down the pecking order when it comes to attracting players and keeping our good ones

Personally, I can't see how Septic are at a peak just now. I've seen many better teams come out of the Piggery than they have at present. They are on top at the moment, but as JA states, it's only a matter of time before we are the dominant force again.

Walter seems to be doing what he has always done 1st..........making us hard to beat. Next part of his plan, hopefully, should be to add the flair and skill that we lack at the moment. Add 2 good, mobile strikers to the mix and hey presto!...we can start to kick some tim arse again!

So let's not judge the present Septic team by our standards? We are a poor side at the moment, but the points gap in the SPL is making them look a whole lot better than they really are. They have found the ability to win when they don't deserve to, as they have shown in so many games this season, and I'm pretty sure that is the main difference between us. But WE are the improving team, and WE are the team they have to keep up with in the next 5 years!

WATP and don't let anyone forget it!

Rangers are in deep sh#t. Annilise it as closely as you like the tattie munchers are miles ahead. They are not going to give up ground easily...their squad is at least a grade above ours,and appears to attract a better class off player in general terms..although admittedly still not that great, add the financial situation of both clubs, and it may take an embarrassingly long time before were even along side them......hope im wrong.

Well said that man!

Some fans on here seem to think the gap between Rangers and Celtic isnt as big as it actually is. Wake up, Take off the Blue tinted glasses and look across the city. Celtic are doing what Rangers should be doing.

We will continue to play catch up, we are at least 2 years behind Celtic and every time we improve, they will improve further. They are not going to stand still and let us catch up to them.

The original poster said in 5 years, we will be on top.......... So Celtic will have 7 in a row by then, we will have a new Chairman and yet again it will be all change at Rangers. More turmoil.

Well that's certainly a start mate. As with the unproven players, I would say add to that a steady diet of Rangers lore so they not only get better as players, but are also blue enough to wear the jersey.

At no point should the fans know more about "being Rangers" than the Rangers themselves, and I think there's some of that going on now. Here's to Wattie and the fix he may bring to that.

You would have to credit the original post as being of the "glass half full" variety , but there is no factual basis to it, only hope.

Now in the cyclical nature of the old firm in Scotland you would assume that Rangers will at some point in the future become the dominant force again but it will only be down to an unforeseen change, and not anything to do with the current chairman , management or structure.

I remember during NIAR thinking we would dominate for years but then along came Fergus.

Celtic are outperforming us in every way just now

Their team is stronger

They buy better

They market (prostitute) themselves better

They exploit their fans better

They develop youth players better

The idea that their training facility will take time to settle is absurd. The development of youth is nothing to do with facilityies and everything to do with structure and quality coaching. Celtic are miles aead in this department and their new training facility will only help them in this.

There is no evidence that the new crop of players coming through Murray Park will do any better than any others, especially when they tag along with the booze3 brothers when tghey make the first team squad, then they will become the next charlie miller, the next derek ferguson, the etc. etc.

Celtic have no shame and that makes them strong. They signed keane to sell shirts, to sell merchandise - they could care a fig if Keane spent the whole season on the bench, he was worth much more to them in the shop than on the field.

We are second best and until the chairman makes a dramatic u-turn or finds someone with new energy and direction we will remain second best.
