My team for saturday, with the hope john and alves are fit would be a 4-5-1

Tav, Cardoso, Alves, Hodson
Candeias, Dorran, Pena, Jack, John

Would have far more confidence in John pushed forward although I think he will play miller in that position.

Regarding Pena, last night he should signs of why we bought him. wouldn't say I was amazed but definitely showing signs of what he can/ could do for us. I mean the guy has played minutes wise about 180mins and has 2 goals to his name. So I think to many people are being abit harsh on him.

you cannot leave kenny miller out of an old firm game no matter how poor he has been so far this season he has a great record against that mob and no doubt he will relish the chance to keep that record going on saturday. it could be a long long 90 mins and think we will need to ride out luck a few times. here's hoping i am wrong.

Miller will play!
don't know where though

My rangers team against them on saturday, would be similar to fintytint's team! I would play pena instead of windass, as he's improved on his fitness and imo there's a good player there! Regarding windass, again last night against partick thistle he was anonymous yet again! NO wonder he's nicknamed the "INVISIBLE MAN", by a lot of our supporters! I've absolutely NO confidence in him and we can't have passengers against celtic on saturday! He plays the odd 20 minutes here and there and totally hides for long spells, during games! Not to mention how poor in front of goal he is! The guy is well shy in confidence! Pena has scored as much goals for us already, in hardly any game time, than windass has scored in 2 years with us! We can't rely on windass fellow bears imo, simple as that!

Almost there, fintytint. If Alves and John make it, I think the team will be;
Tavernier Cardoso Alves John
Candeias Dorrans Pena Jack Miller

This would give us options as to who joins up with Morelos, either Pena, Miller or Candeias, it would allow Dorrans and Jack to help shore up the defence and give us more of a backbone, without disturbing either the formation or the growing familiarity of players. But you know I have a strange feeling Pedro might try something more radical, like playing Morelos wide left and using Herrera as the target man! Over my 60 years of watching football I've seen many managers pulling strokes like this with great success - and dreadful failure!

Kenny was not missed last night. I recon if we can be consistent on the left and get a few more decent midfield runs into the box eg pena style we will have a very good team and score loads. We play some very good football at times but just don't last the full 90. Kennys touch let's him down and he is hardly prolific anymore. i'd play him as a sub for last 20 mins of games.

Pena showed signs of why we bought him? We paid 3mil for this guy and now he is just showing signs. I'm sorry but if we pay 3mil for a player then he has to hit the ground running from the start not show signs of what he might be about after what 8 games of the season, and still he hasn't done 90mins. Why are serious questions not being asked? Time to settle in or get fit doesn't wash. He cost us 3mil!

21 Sep 2017 00:47:04
I think peds trying mind games by saying alves is struggling.

100% this will be line up
Tav cardoso alves John
Candieas Jack dorrans windass


I'd like to see hodson and John on the left to double up on roberts though.

Good team for Saturday bigsam, I could go with that. As an alternative would consider:





My team is slightly more defensive and provides cover for offensive runs of Roberts and Sinclair. Tbh I would take a draw from the fixture and win at Hamilton before the international break.

21 Sep 2017 00:57:05
I disagree over Miller, camoo, he's not an impact player he needs time to warm up as he's getting on a bit. I'd play him for an hour then bring on young, fresh legs to run at a (hopefully) tiring defence.

21 Sep 2017 08:49:47
Coldo, you never have said anythying good about Penna. At least he has scored goals. There is a player there and slowly but surely it is beginning to show. Sounds as though you have never played football for more than one team if you have played at all. I have played for more than 1 team and it does take time to get used to your team mates. Oh and by the way I played in both FA and SFA Cup qualifying rounds.

21 Sep 2017 14:07:22
Agreed, Bankie, it's a good option doubling up on the left. I just worry that we might be showing them too much respect (fear) if we line up so defensively in a home game. Courage of selection and the bravery of the players could be a vital factor. Another thing I've discussed with others is the possibility of just going 4-4-2 and lengthen the game, missing out the midfield where people expect us to be overrun. Use cross-field passes to introduce the wingers into the attack, then get tight and hunt in packs when we lose the ball. They will target Morelos and try to kick him out of the game, rile him, get him booked, and the manager must make the lad aware of this. This game, whichever way we go about it, is crying out for somebody to become a hero. My money's on Dorrans.

Whats your point bluetoon? Both pena and herrera are barry white and we should never have paid 5mil for them.
