More good news. According to The Scotsman three Turkish players are interested in Carlos Pena!

DOIGER

1.) 03 Jan 2019 11:06:23
Would be great to get him off the books and free up funds for someone decent to come in.


2.) 03 Jan 2019 11:50:48
I meant to say Turkish teams rather than players, in case I'm accused of some sort of phobia!


3.) 03 Jan 2019 13:36:01
I see the Tims have survived the festive period and are back to sitting over a laptop pressing disagree on rangers sites 😂😂
What a life lads what a life 😂😂.

Morning Bears. Anyone have an update on injuries to Barisic and Kent and also is Arfield banned for tonight's game after his red card on Sunday?

DOIGER

1.) 05 Dec 2018 11:14:17
Barisic and Kent very close to return (probably Sunday at Dundee) . I'm sure Arfield will miss tonigjt"s game and be available for Dundee on Sunday. Morelos suspended for Sunday.


2.) 05 Dec 2018 11:16:16
The norm is that you miss the next league game unless the red card is appealed. I don’t think it has been appealed so Arfield will miss tonight’s game.


3.) 06 Dec 2018 13:40:28
Gerrard said it is too early for Kent. Barisic back in squad.


 

 

31 Aug 2018 09:37:01
Daily Express reporting that Dinamo Kiev will make a deadline day bid of at least £7 million for El Buffalo today. If they up the bid to over £10 million I think Gers should accept! However, SG has said that Morelos will start on Sunday against the unwashed. If he goes, perhaps we can get a striker in at the last minute?

DOIGER

1.) 31 Aug 2018 09:57:39
Solanke?


2.) 31 Aug 2018 10:03:35
DOUGER; I agree mate, I like Morelos but the fact is he is a reliability. 10 million would be a great bit of business but who can we get for a replacement?


3.) 31 Aug 2018 10:21:07
I think that if we, had gone out last night, he would have been sold today, especially under the circumstances. but it would take an outlandish bid for him to go now, and a replacement in place as well, but we need a large squad now. Also the potential is there. if he learns to button the lip and finish more of his chances. in a year we could see a bid for 20 million from a premier club come in.


4.) 31 Aug 2018 10:26:16
Stevie G and mark allen will have a plan if morelos is sold 100%.


5.) 31 Aug 2018 10:32:06
Hes not going anywhere, will be very surprised if he doesn't sign a new contract before he reports for international duty. give him a good season under stevie g, help us win the league and sell him for 20million in the summer. Happy days.


6.) 31 Aug 2018 10:42:12
Keep him till jan let him score few more goals in europe etc add few extra £££.


7.) 31 Aug 2018 10:52:14
Why would they sell him when they are trying so hard to tie him down to a new deal? Honestly guys get out your boxes. The laddie is a talent and he must stay! No many matches you’ll ever see a ref send a player off for no approaching him just a power hungry German. Refs job is to keep 11 v 11 no bin folk any chance they get.


8.) 31 Aug 2018 10:55:13
Solanke coming in would be great and we haven't really seen Sadiq yet. Also, can I mention my old mate Hardie lol? At least if we'd kept him he might have been back up striker. I promise not to mention Hardie again this season, honest.


9.) 31 Aug 2018 11:04:37
Will folk shut up about Solanke? He's not coming, never was and he's not that great in the first place.


10.) 31 Aug 2018 11:36:37
Solanke is crap. Morelos' bad behaviour cannot be passed off as 'poor refereeing' either. He speaks to refs like that every game and gete booked every week. He is - however - better than Solanke and anyone else we could get in at this point.


11.) 31 Aug 2018 11:43:15
Solanke no thanks. He needs to screw the nut. We would be crazy to sell when in Europe. Guy needs a word in his ear. He's a proper striker and is valuable asset that's only going to increase in value.


12.) 31 Aug 2018 11:46:00
Take a deep breathe lads he’s going nowhere ok a bit of hothead but that’s what makes Fredo the player he is.


13.) 31 Aug 2018 11:52:44
So72, Solanke is crap? What a statement!
You must doubt Klopp and Stevie Gerrard and what they know about football! 🇬🇧.


14.) 31 Aug 2018 12:14:27
Solanke is a top talent, anyone who can't see that is deluded👍.


15.) 31 Aug 2018 12:46:52
Morelos is to much of a liability, boy has bags of potential but will cost us points.


16.) 31 Aug 2018 12:49:55
If solanke played for anyone other than our new pals liverpool he wouldn't have been mentioned once.


17.) 31 Aug 2018 12:50:01
Happy with that only one long journey Moscow.


18.) 31 Aug 2018 13:10:03
Can’t see Morelos going anywhere this late in the day. Gerrard is a big fan of his. That being said, he’s got a target on his back as soon as he steps on to that pitch on Sunday. They will be targeting him from the firstborn whistle. Personally I’d start with Laff. If I’m a celtic defender then the last name I want to see on that team sheet is Lafferty.


19.) 31 Aug 2018 13:18:43
Morelos is going NOWHERE today.


20.) 31 Aug 2018 15:59:37
LDM Other week you said Wallace would NEVER make bench so I suppose Morelos off today then 😂😂👍👍
All the best bud 👍.


21.) 31 Aug 2018 17:24:33
reliability. morelos lol i'd keep him for now if he gets on scoresheet for colombia we could be looking at 20 million.


 

 

26 Aug 2018 22:35:02
Just thinking Bears, maybe the change in formation was a mistake? It clearly affected the defence, conceding 3 goals. Also, I'm not sure that Morelos and Lafferty should both start together, especially in the upcoming two games this week. For the game at the piggery, I'd start Morelos and keep Lafferty on the bench as we'll need to tighten up again. I do hope Couibaly is back this week and Arfield maybe should have started today. Still unbeaten though and who said we'd win every game!

DOIGER

1.) 27 Aug 2018 00:39:55
Trouble with today's system was we had two sitting midfielders in Jack and halliday, SG went for dig and strength, when really we should have stuck to our high pressing 4321.


2.) 27 Aug 2018 02:36:35
Na this is the formation going forward. Just need to teach tavernier how to track a runner and we should be fine.


3.) 27 Aug 2018 06:07:02
Listening to SG post match interview and I've a feeling this is now going to be our formation - I'm not convinced tbh.


4.) 27 Aug 2018 06:19:49
Formation was not the problem for any of their goals. Was Tavs crap defending at set plays and a very bad piece of bad luck.


5.) 27 Aug 2018 06:27:10
Rfc Chris the formation is fin yes. IMO tavernier can't be taught to track runners he's had about 5 managers at rangers now and they couldn't teach him.


6.) 27 Aug 2018 07:43:45
I don’t think it was the formation. It was bad defending by tav and to be honest when he took Barasic off and went 442 that’s when we lost control of the game. We live and learn. Good thing we’re going to get 3 points next Sunday. Still fully confident we can beat that mob.


7.) 27 Aug 2018 08:05:31
Of it was! We’ve been solid with a back 4 all season but in saying that if you can’t defend set pieces you get punished.


8.) 27 Aug 2018 08:10:36
as a defender defending against set pieces if you haven't got the desire to get to the ball before the man your marking you will get found out time and time again which has is happening to tav some of our best ever defenders butcher gough amoruso they had pure desire to win that ball you can't coach desire so unless tav finds it from somewhere which i think is doubtful he’ll always get found out.


9.) 27 Aug 2018 08:47:48
Wouldn’t blame the formation for losing 2 goals at set plays and a slip. We still scored 3. Looked weak on the left when barisic went off for Middleton. The last 20 minutes in some of our games are becoming really stressful but still a work in progress. Back the team and manager lads because it will be bumpy at times.


10.) 27 Aug 2018 09:00:58
Defo start big laff gainst the filth
He frightens the rubbish outa them.


11.) 27 Aug 2018 09:47:09
Spot on colshygers. You can have all the talent in the world, but if you don't have the real desire within you, you will certainly get found out every time. ONWARDS AND UPWARDS THE FAMOUS.


12.) 27 Aug 2018 10:28:11
Jzer - The high press will only work if it's against a team that want to play football, Motherwell's tactic was going long to their 2 strikers everytime.


13.) 27 Aug 2018 10:44:21
Let’s face it guys, we played a rugby team yesterday. No all our games are going to be like that, the part I’m most frustrated with is the fact second half we got sucked into playing their game, launching long balls running channels. If we had just looked after the ball better and played the same as the first half we would have been fine. Think the ref let their boys away with too many niggly fouls before producing cards meaning the same guys got 3/ 4 fouls each before the ball started rolling. Goldson slipped can’t do nothing about that but Tav was naive, I coach my little brothers team and i can tell you now if any of them got caught twice like that they would be dropped it’s embarrassing for a pro player to not be able to follow a man. He HAS to learn, seeing a lot of calls for him to play midfield, sorry guys but even in midfield he will still need to defend from a corner so that doesn’t solve our problem.

Just a side note, absolute state of the league btw that’s aberdeen and now Motherwell celebrated last minute equalisers against us like they’ve won the champs league, embarrassing tinpot clubs the lot of them.


14.) 27 Aug 2018 11:05:07
That formation would have worked with a quality centre back in alongside our two regular centre backs but in any event you cannot legislate for someone slipping when they are well in control of the situation. If we had got off to a better start then it would have been a different game although our players would still have been nudged, kicked, and generally roughed up, since that is Motherwell's game! Tavernier is superb going forward but defensively he is weak and this was proved again yesterday. While Halliday was on the Park our midfield was doing well, Arfield's introduction at Halliday's expense proved a mistake since he was anonymous from when he came on until the final whistle. Taking off Barisic, who was well in control at left back and replacing him with young Middleton was also a mistake since it allowed Motherwell to attack down both flanks and if the idea was to used Middleton's speed then you play the ball to him on the ground, not up in the air. That just played into their tactics. As for the Wallace substitution fundamentally wrong given the timing, especially for a guy who hasn't played a competitive game for the best part of a year!


15.) 27 Aug 2018 12:58:59
All 3 substitutions were poor.

Assume Halliday taken off as was on booking and narrowly escaped second yellow card before being taken off. Airfield as replacement added nothing.

Not clear why Barasic taken off unless he was injured. Middleton added nothing although to be fair to the boy he never once received the ball.

Timing of Wallace substitution was crazy and if SG thoughy we would benefit from his height I should have been brought on earlier rather than Middleton or Arfield.

Why was McCrowrie not on the bench and brought on,


16.) 27 Aug 2018 14:54:44
Suspension.


 

 

14 Jul 2018 08:27:58
Atakayi, Rudden and Hardie - three forwards in our development squad. If any one of them had been given a run alongside Morelos last season I'm sure it would have made a difference. What is the point in having a development squad if the club is not going to develop them in the first team? We've signed too many has-beens over the last few years and look at the tripe that has to be cleared out yet again before the season starts properly.

DOIGER

1.) 14 Jul 2018 10:50:51
It's easier said than done Old firm fans especially are impatient and want success straight away with these youngsters you can't just throw them into 1st team as it can ruin them with to much pressure on their shoulders this is why we have to calm down with the boy Middleton everybody wants him to start games but we cannot be putting that kind of pressure so soon on young lad these players need developed correctly at a good speed not to much to soon the loan system we use for Hardie especially will stand him in good stead in coming years


2.) 14 Jul 2018 12:07:55
We done the same with Docherty and McCorrie, these guys need to play without pressure and play selective games. These guys are the future and we can’t burn them out or hammer their confidence


3.) 14 Jul 2018 12:42:45
There is an old adage in football 'if you are good enough you are old enough'. I remember young players like Denis Law, Jim Forrest, Derek Johnstone and Colin Stein all playing at a high level while very young. Forrest scored 57 goals in a season when still only 20. How long do you keep farming these youngsters out - until they are 27 or 28? Utter tosh. McCrorie is clearly good enough to play in the first team now and so is Docherty. Looks like Middleton is too. Derek Johnstone was only 16 when he made his first team debut for Rangers. Rant over.


4.) 14 Jul 2018 13:01:41
Doiger you answer your own question, they are not good enough yet.


5.) 14 Jul 2018 13:13:12
That's the difference, mcrorie is good enough and has established himself as one of the first names on the team sheet, unfortunately hardie isn't (yet anyway) but obviously they want another year's loan to see how he progresses. Rudden and atakayi have bags of potential but are still raw and not ready for anything other than being involved in first team squads with occasional sub appearance if games allow. We need another striker to go with alf and sadiq. Someone with experience and the knack of scoring goals


6.) 14 Jul 2018 13:17:19
I think we are over protective of our younger players look at the amount of late teens early 20s in the world cup Mbappe is 19!IMO it's sink or swim no point in developing the boys if the weight of the badge is too much
There have been seasoned pros can't cope


7.) 14 Jul 2018 14:40:44
You said it yourself if you're old enough you're good enough. If they're not impressing in training to point of starting a game or getting on the bench then they're obviously not good enough at this point in time in the eyes of the management who see them everyday. The real talent will ultimately shine through in the end if it's only one youngster out of 10 then so be it.


8.) 14 Jul 2018 14:47:24
Hardie isn’t good enough, Rudden has a long way to go I think Atakayi could get some time this year.

For me only McCrorie and Middleton have got it. I believe there’s a kid called Williamson apparently potential superstar.

Too many on here think cause their Rangers youth they should get a shout. If they’re not getting a game they’re not ready.


9.) 14 Jul 2018 17:15:35
4 managers now in the last 5 years have deemed hardie not ready. They saw him every day we don’t. I fear the championship is his level


10.) 14 Jul 2018 19:18:40
Yeah SharpshootersPOM, but look at who these managers were. Caixhinho, Warburton, McCoist, blah, blah. Great managers, not. Time we took a chance on youth. I'm not saying play six development squad players but goodness me surely if a couple of these players were given a decent run last season we couldn't have done any worse. You and others on here are talking as if we have had uninterrupted success over the last five years. Eh, sorry we have won f*** all! Look at the crap we've brought in, e. g. Pena, Herrera, Cummings, Forrester, Cardoso, Windass, etc, etc.


11.) 14 Jul 2018 19:54:51
if these boys have anything about them they should thrive under pressure. that's what football is. in european leagues what we call boys ie 18-24 they call professionals


12.) 14 Jul 2018 20:09:30
or they end up just doing a bunk as they know they have no chance. billy gilmour, charlie telfer, these players will continue to leave. PLAY THEM!


13.) 14 Jul 2018 20:14:54
THESE IDIOTS WHO SAY PROTECT THEM. DO YOU THINK THEY WANT PROTECTED. or want an opportunity to skin an make a fool of more expierianced players to make a name for thier selves. ps colt team thing not going far enough there should be a scottish elect team that can only sign players that are eligible for scotland national team or will be eligible (youth) and no older than 23.as soon as 23 ship them out if they have a club lined up.


14.) 14 Jul 2018 20:15:42
take the fear out of our football again, go back to great football


15.) 14 Jul 2018 22:21:31
So why is gerrard not playing him DOIGER? He surely knows a striker when he see 1 considering who he has played with no? Dry your eyes because my opinion differs from the great football managers of our time like your good self 😏


16.) 15 Jul 2018 08:39:34
Gerforlife have a look where telfer is now-another who thot he too big for the club-and i state no man ever will be


17.) 15 Jul 2018 09:00:40
DOIGER, totally agree mate0. Hardie could easily have been given a place on the bench for certain games in the last 2 seasons. Brought on for the last 20-25 minutes. Who knows, he could have come on in a game we were struggling in and bagged a couple of goals. If he and Atakayi, Rudden etc aren't given a chance then we'll never know if they're good enough or not. If Billy Gilmour hadn't gone to Chelsea, would we be farming him out to Livingston or Falkirk every season until he was 22 or 23? A question for those who disagree- we're a goal down, 20 mins left of the game and Hardie and Herrera are on the bench. Which one to you send on to the park? I know which one I'd choose!

22 Feb 2019 09:40:56
What team should SG put out on Sunday against Hamilton on the dreaded plastic pitch? With Morelos banned, I think he must play Lafferty AND Defoe. My team (assuming McGregor is available again, I can't remember) :

McGregor; Tavernier, Goldson, Katic, Halliday; Kent, Arfield, Kamara, Kent; Defoe; Lafferty

For me, Halliday epitomises what every player wearing the blue shirt should be doing. 100% passion! Maybe in-form Motherwell can do us a favour at the midden heap.

DOIGER

1.) 22 Feb 2019 10:11:08
IMO cannot drop Jack and Candyman. I would be so tempted with a 3-5-2 -

Tav / Goldson / Katic
Kent / Jack/ Kamara / Arfield / Candyman
Defoe / Lafferty

Hamilton will sit back, so any point in 4 defenders?


2.) 22 Feb 2019 10:26:47
Sorry, I meant to type Jack before Arfield, not Kent twice!


3.) 22 Feb 2019 11:35:57
The last time he went 352 at Motherwell he lost, he won't do that again I assure you. I think McCrorie will come in for Kamara. It'll be a scrap, Halliday probably for Barisic.


4.) 22 Feb 2019 12:08:02
Last time he playing 352 at motherwell we drew 3 each with Gerrard making the mistake of making a subby taking wallace on to defend a corner.


5.) 22 Feb 2019 14:13:44
I'd love and prefer to see one of the young lads play instead of Lafferty.


6.) 22 Feb 2019 14:56:21
Just because we drew playing 352 should be no reason to boot the formation out. How many awful performances have we had playing 433 yet we stick with it. We're not good enough to just put the same team out every week and have other teams bend to our will, we need to address each game as a different problem that can't all be solved with the same system.


7.) 22 Feb 2019 22:02:01
Regarding the draw at Motherwell we scored 3 goals but the 3 we lost were due to a slip from goldson and 2 set plays so nothing to do with the formation as far as I’m concerned.


 

 

21 Feb 2019 08:08:12
So Stewart and Sutton (two of the muppets) have come out and backed Clarke over alleged sectarian abuse. Surprise, surprise. Didn't hear them coming out when Boyd was hit by a coin and abused? What bitter, twisted people they are along with Walker. As for last night, Morelos is different class. Given the crazy transfer fees down south and in Europe, he must be worth upwards of £20 million. Now for the sheep in the quarter finals.

DOIGER

1.) 21 Feb 2019 08:40:35
Spot on another demonstration of the media bias we suffer no mention of sectarian abuse boyd recieved ill bet the compliance officer looks at Kamara, obviously once she received instructions from Lawell.


2.) 21 Feb 2019 09:11:33
Just shows you how much Morelos is missed. Quality goals last night. Also thought Kamara was brilliant.
Re the abuse i think the fact that Boyd was struck with a coin and also called a fat orange b****** and for this to be largely ignored by all and sundry, and then for the likes of Sutton to come out and condemn what is essentially the same thing is an absolute and utter disgrace. Both incidences are equally wrong in my opinion and there is a dangerous train of thought here that laughs off one as just banter while the always offended are up in arms about the other. Disgusting!


3.) 21 Feb 2019 09:40:37
Just watched the highlights on Sportscene. Stewart condemned the sectarian abuse (no mention of Kris Boyd's abuse), said that Killie's goalkeeper shouldn't have been sent off and implied it was a penalty for Kilmarnock when Worrall pulled their player. Grudging praise for Morelos and no mention of our two disallowed goals and one that hit the bar. Great to have a neutral punter (not)!


4.) 21 Feb 2019 12:03:07
Stewart will never have a good word to say about us since he was sent packing by big Eck. Not really bothered by what he says anymore.


5.) 21 Feb 2019 14:33:55
Saw the highlights this morning, we attacked at pace, Kamara seemed to be involved in a lot of it, it was good to see compared to the slow build up, over pass it style of the last few weeks. What can you say about Alfie? what a player, just need the management to educate him about retaliation, and get him to laugh at defenders and then he'll really have the beating of them. Stewart is irrelevant with his biased views, i'd love to see him try and defend one of alfie's bustling runs!


 

 

18 Feb 2019 09:05:51
Another disappointing result. The lack of consistency is worrying and the lack of striker cover puzzling. Were Jack and Arfield injured yesterday? What has SG got against Katic? Why didn't Halliday play - he gives everything for the jersey. We've got to to for every game now with only 12 league games left. I watched the unwashed highlights. They were very lucky not to lose let alone win. Broon should have been sent off and his goal was an outrageous deflection. Sometimes the luck goes your way.

DOIGER

1.) 18 Feb 2019 11:05:05
Turns out Jack and Arfoeld were injured, Doiger. Tbh we should still have had the quality to overcome a poor St Johnstone side.


2.) 18 Feb 2019 11:11:02
Doiger - I would start Halliday at LB. As you say, he wouldn't have accepted that rubbish at the weekend and is more committed to the jersey than Barasic. Also, Katic needs to start playing as Worrall won't be here next season. Do we also need to look at change of formation, cause morelos won't be here next season and Defoe and Laf can't play the lone striker. Lot's of issues to resolve for next season.


3.) 18 Feb 2019 11:12:07
Jack and Arfield injured in training. What bugs me is why we play with 2 defensive midfielders v St J at home. It's fine for certain games (Mhanks or in Europe) . We did not need Mccrorie and Kamara both playing. Maybe a 4-1-3-2 formation for teams that sit back a bit. Katic is a mystery - better player than Bombscare Joe and he is a threat for our corners.


4.) 18 Feb 2019 11:24:22
I'm getting fed up with gerrard constantly changing / rotating the team, your best 11 always starts unless of course they are injured / suspended. Why pay 2mil for katic to sit him on the bench? That is just a waste! Particularly when katic should be playing! You can't rotate just to keep players happy, if they can't reach the standard to push for a place then show them the door. The cup replay just got even bigger👍.


5.) 18 Feb 2019 11:28:47
Jack and arfield both injured in training🤔, seem to be loosing a lot of players to injuries👍.


6.) 18 Feb 2019 11:34:41
Should have played Dapo Mebude, couldn’t have done any worse!


7.) 18 Feb 2019 12:04:52
Coldco where it say they were injured in training, Arfield was subbed against killie due to injury, he even spoke about it in post match interview, also jack pulled a muscle on that pitch.


8.) 18 Feb 2019 13:01:14
Jbhoy21, one of the posters above said it. Scottbrownswain. Take it you missed that👍.


9.) 18 Feb 2019 19:19:08
actually i would have played halliday in his natural position and dropped Steve Davis.


10.) 18 Feb 2019 21:46:58
I think, unfortunately, Davis isn't going to work out. Certainly not short term.

Everything broke down through him Saturday.

Think Defoe can offer something.


11.) 18 Feb 2019 22:45:32
100% find your best 11 play them unless injured or suspended, that Ronny deila made that mistake of constantly changing players for that mob, then Brenda appeared inherited the same squad and all of a sudden they were a different team and that is because he figured out his best 11 . Also I don't see the point in Defoe playing at all if we don't go 2 up top, absolutely pointless in my opinion, I also agree about playing 2 DCM, we shouldn't need that against St Johnstone at Ibrox, get players attacking them, get them under pressure and go and win the game instead of just seeing how it goes.


 

 

15 Feb 2019 17:50:21
Defoe and Lafferty doubtful and Morelos suspended. I kept saying keep Hardie. Who the f*** is going to play up front?

DOIGER

1.) 15 Feb 2019 18:41:46
Lafferty is fit to start, Defoe more doubtful and if he doesn’t make bench will be replaced by youngster Dapo Mebude.
Could be blessing in disguise that Lafferty gets a chance to start at this stage of the season, a goal or 2 would give his confidence a real boost going into business end.


2.) 15 Feb 2019 22:11:48
Anybody but Hardie. He's long gone.

Doiger what possible benefit was keeping Hardie "just in case " the lad will benefit more playing, in the long run so will we.

My Hardie comment was a bit of banter as the name of this website suggests, though I still Gerrard should have kept him and got rid of Lafferty. Everyone on here knows I'm a Hardie fan! Having said that, if Lafferty does play today he might bag a couple of goals and boost his confidence.

Haha Doiger (aka Ryan Hardie)

Hardie will NEVER be good enough. Livingston will be his level. Only given a contract extention of 1 yr in the hope we might get 50 grand for him.

Sad to hear Gordon Banks has died. I just watched again on You Tube that unbelievable save he made against Brazil in 1970. I am old enough to have watched it live the first time round! He was probably the greatest keeper ever?

Agreed, he was also the best in my opinion. RIP.

I remember England playing Northern Ireland at Windsor Park, Banks threw the ball in the air to kick it into play and George Best caught the ball in mid air and scores a goal, Banks went ballistic ( the goal wasn’t allowed ) for some reason. But Banks was a superb goalie, nearly as good as Shagger 😝.

Ulsterman, not saying you are wrong, but my dad reckons he kicked the ball out of Bank's hands as he went to kick the ball away. He was just talking to us about it also he was singing a song " aye aye aye Aye Banks is better than Yashin" .

Like yourself Doiger can remember that save live greatest save I've ever seen.


5.) 12 Feb 2019 16:26:42
Broke Scotland's hearts on many occasions. Best ever keeper imo.


6.) 12 Feb 2019 17:36:35
Bluepete
Banks threw the ball into the air and Best nipped in and stole it, the ref didn’t say anything to Best, but he did disallow the goal, doesn’t matter anyway, your point and mine is Banks was a world class keeper .


7.) 12 Feb 2019 17:45:29
Firstly my sincerest condolences goes to the family of the late, great gordon banks, god bless him! Absolute superb world class goalkeeper. I still think IMO, peter schmeichel is the best goalkeeper i've seen, followed closely by our keeper, the great andy goram! All about opinions i suppose.


8.) 12 Feb 2019 18:52:36
Banks was a great keeper but Andy goram was the best I've ever seen.


9.) 12 Feb 2019 21:07:01
Believe Gordon Banks was best keeper of his or any other generation. RIP.


10.) 12 Feb 2019 22:36:31
Stefano Klos was better than them both imo.

Didn't Hallket give the ball away and this led to Rangers' 3rd goal?

Dear Marble and these 'rumours' come from where? I'd be happy if Kamara joins and Kent on a permanent deal but I'd only be interested in Naismith of the others. He'd grab goals in 'the hole' position.

I'd put Hardie third choice ahead of Lafferty any day.

I meant to say Turkish teams rather than players, in case I'm accused of some sort of phobia!

Doesn't Stevie G have a deal with Liverpool that he'll get first option on any players going out on loan? He'd have to say no to Solanke for him to be heading to the dark side.

Sorry, I meant to type Jack before Arfield, not Kent twice!

Just watched the highlights on Sportscene. Stewart condemned the sectarian abuse (no mention of Kris Boyd's abuse), said that Killie's goalkeeper shouldn't have been sent off and implied it was a penalty for Kilmarnock when Worrall pulled their player. Grudging praise for Morelos and no mention of our two disallowed goals and one that hit the bar. Great to have a neutral punter (not)!

The BBC and SFA are corrupt and bigoted against us. Its all gone quiet over the Kris Boyd being hit by a coin incident and the sectarian abuse aimed at him and surprise, surprise, Broon's vile tackle which should have seen red has been swept under the green carpet that is the SFA. Best answer is to win our games well and give them nothing to make up about us. Four wins in a row will set us up nicely: Kilmarnock, Hamilton, Dundee and the sheep. We can do it!

In the 'old' days you used to play your best, in-form 11 players and had consistency. Yes, you need a squad to cover for injuries and suspensions but not to tinker with the team every game. If we had a run of playing:
McGregor; Tavernier, Goldson, Katic, Barisic; Jack, McCrorie, Arfield; Kent, Morelos, Defoe, we might achieve a run. We don't seem to be able to put a run together and tinkering with the team is the problem.

DOIGER

{Ed039's Note - Your “in form” players include Defoe and no right midfielder?)
