Good afternoon Gents,
I would firstly like to voice my anger at Clint Hill.
"3rd would represent a successful season"?
That statement is unacceptable from anyone at Ibrox when we have held second whilst having a poor season.
They should be fighting tooth and nail to get back there and solidify 2nd and close the gap to first as best they can. Nothing less is acceptable.
Now most people here are crying out for 4-4-2 and I would like to see us give it a go but my concern is we do not have the midfield players for this. We need at least one dynamic, defensive mid to support our 2 CB's. There is NO-ONE in our squad who can do this to an acceptable level.
Looking at our squad and our frailties I think 3-5-2/ 3-4-1-2 is our best option.
3 CB's - One playing slightly in front of 2 (almost CDM) trying to break play up early if being attacked centrally and dropping back to cover spaces if we are attacked on wing and CB's drawn wide.
Our wing backs Could sit in more centrally with 2 CM's forming a barrier of 4 in front of CB's when not in possession but going wide when we get ball.

Like your optimism blue genius and your dynamic thoughts on how game should be played. GENIUS I'm contacting my mate who does the odds for William Hill to install you as favourite for managers post
01 Mar 2017 15:54:20
Hill meant in regards to finishing in a Europa spot that 3rd is no different than 2nd in terms of where we start the qualifyers.
01 Mar 2017 16:37:53
bluedrama, think your mate will have him at long odds, after all that dynamic thinking and then has Halliday in his line up.
01 Mar 2017 17:10:03
Definate rangeken. Football is matter of opinions and I would not have Kieran or Halliday near the team. It shows the options we have. Why Warburton never addressed defence is beyond me.
01 Mar 2017 17:36:37
Govanite I did get his point but you have to stand up and say 3rd is unacceptable no matter what. 2nd is bad enough for Rangers!
Rangeken I understand your doubt over my team selection but I was not meaning the particular players just giving an example of how they should set out. Having said that Kiernan I have named 3 out of our 4 centre backs we have and Kiernan is one of the better passers hence him being at front.
As for Halliday well I would also have dropped him but I do sympathise with him as he is never a CDM and has been made nervous by being pushed into that position. When he was further forward the other night he looked better (still not the best tho) .
01 Mar 2017 19:42:21
You destroy your argument by putting Halliday in your team! That is like playing with then men!

Bomber was driving.
01 Mar 2017 13:17:08
Barry fergasonseen. is that ronnys mate from norway?
lol. away back to your crayons and lego
01 Mar 2017 10:58:11
It may or may not be fair enough for the players telling newspapers criticism is unfair and Clint Hill saying there's plenty of fight in the team. I say prove it then and show us that you're right. Don't talk about fine margins at high level football, simply put the ball in the back of St Johnstone's net a few times and prevent it from going in the back of our own a few times tonight.

Board need to ensure the next manager "sells season tickets" Alex Neil does not sell season tickets - Its well documented where his allegiances lie. If we are going down that route, may as well appoint Lemmon or Stubbs.
This is a dilema for the board, we need a quality manager, but don't have the funds to properly back him. Hopefully court case with Ashley goes in our favour - releases funds and we can move forward.
01 mar 2017 09:19:55
rangers managers job. great salary
fantastic facilities. chance to build something special.
must have expirence at top level
must have ambition to take club forward.
must not have supported celtic.
pathetic barcelona bear.
01 Mar 2017 09:12:36
"May as well appoint Lennon or Stubbs"? Please enlighten me.
01 Mar 2017 10:00:48
Ironically we could really do with a manager with Lennon's traits. Could you imagine he was appointed and the meltdown that would occur from the celtic lot? We've had players cross the divide before but never a manager.
01 Mar 2017 11:38:45
Why would you bother who they supported or played for? As soon as they put on a shirt or a blazer with the badge they are then a rangers employee
01 Mar 2017 12:55:20
Should Pedro Caixinha not be in the frame either. Turns out he used to be a talent spotter for Celtic.
01 Mar 2017 13:00:01
Barcabear your away with it. Neil would be a great appointment IMO, done brilliantly in scotland with hamilton and since then had a succesful first season at norwich to take them up.
Very much a 'players manager' which is what we need right now to get best out of what we have.
01 Mar 2017 15:06:25
@barcabear - its attitudes like yours that holds the club back. How can the club attract future investors when fans like yourself are stuck in the year 1690?
The next manager needs to be appointed on ABILITY!
01 Mar 2017 19:50:20
We need a quality manager, one that can seriously take on Rodgers. Unfortunately none of those that are allegedly on the short list inspire confidence. Macleish is yesterday's man, McInnes has failed at Aberdeen and appears happy to finish second, he has had every chance to overeatke Celtic when they had Delia and he failed consistently. We need a top quality manager that is a winner.
01 Mar 2017 08:50:25
Ave got a worrying feeling its the head players that are calling for the same formation. I believe murty told kenny miller to go 442 in last game and he told him no. Am sure in the commentary they said 'murty has told kenny to change the formation and he just shook his head at him'. Think murty is just there so they can say they have a manager in place and that's it.
01 Mar 2017 09:00:56
From what I heard, it was quite the opposite regarding Miller and Murty, Miller wanted to change the formation, Murty said it was staying the same. Murty then brought on a striker in the 90th minute and changed the bloody formation, Murty is unfortunately out of his depth.
01 Mar 2017 11:34:34
Fair enough onlyshow, I may be taking the idea of who is choosing the formation the wrong way round. I think am just sturggling to work out why we are still playing a formation that doesn't work.
01 Mar 2017 06:49:38
I'm not believing the media yet as to new Rangers manager as they're is some new favourite every day. The challenge is set for players now anyway starting with a win tonight. I would love to catch sheep but we need to have desire. It's now or never Rangers Players hope you read this.
28 Feb 2017 22:23:48
That's the sheep losing at Hamilton. A win against St Johnstone and it's back to 6 points. If this doesn't galvanise the team nothing will. It's time the players starting leaving everything they have on that park. They owe the fans big time. Let's go for it!
28 Feb 2017 22:40:38
these players have gave up and that's clear to see they are not capable of getting galvanised by aberdeen droping points but this formation doesn't suit them so maybe this is why they are not performing aswell
28 Feb 2017 17:12:43
Alex Neil now favorite for the job. Good young manager with more expirence tham when he left Hamilton.
28 Feb 2017 17:46:52
Would have him in a heartbeat but will never happen.
28 Feb 2017 18:05:09
25 to 1 to evens somebody on it?
28 Feb 2017 21:45:28
would need to pay compensation though, but good manager.
28 Feb 2017 22:07:28
I keep reading that we need someone with experience at a high level. Neil has been a manager for less than four years, a whole year more than Barry Ferguson. He also hates Rangers. I can never see a Rangers board ever who would think the appointment of Alex Neil as manager was acceptable.
28 Feb 2017 23:18:30
so what he is a celtic fan, he has done well at Norwich and Hamilton and that's all that should matter!
01 Mar 2017 07:31:13
mo Johnson, Neil McCann, amoroso, gattuso, porrini, novo and many more.
stein, mcgrain, dagliesh, provan and many more.
get a life who cares what team they supported, this rubbish is only relevant if your Scottish or Irish for some reason.
01 Mar 2017 07:38:11
It's pathetic isn't it? It shouldn't be relevant at all
01 Mar 2017 15:09:58
@wee-ecky- he's achieved a hell of a lot more in his 4 years as a manager than BF. You're another one who needs to move on from the year 1690 to allow the club to progress.
01 Mar 2017 17:00:29
Alex Neil does not hate rangers. He is not a Celtic fan
28 Feb 2017 15:56:22
MA was the closest we were going to get to a Billionaire owner. He did not have Rangers interests at heart and it would not have ended well
DK is a millionaire and a fan and as such has done very well to gain control then stabilize the club.
MW was a mistake that has held us back. Neither DK nor the board have the depth of pockets needed to get us challenging Celtic in a meaningful way within the next few seasons. This means a non stellar name getting the managers gig. Hopefully it will be a guy who can secure a comfy 2nd, Europe and mibbies a shot at a cup. Take your pick, there are a few who could do it with the current budget.
The day we can afford a De Bore, let alone his budget is years away. I can and will accept this because we were staring down the business end of the shitt$r not so long ago. So, unless a billionaire Rangers fan looks out his cheque book sometime soon, it will be what it is until we all, fans, chairman, board and staff turn it around.
28 Feb 2017 16:26:31
Tommy Wright is the outstanding candidate. I'll be gutted if we don't get him in.
28 Feb 2017 17:56:10
Wright is a candidate but more of a risk than outstanding
28 Feb 2017 18:34:12
We're rooked. A big name doesn't come cheap and on that basis I think Wright is the man for us. Anyone who comes in will be a risk to an extent anyway.
