I think we need to get the McGinn rumours out of our heads, he will not come to us and I do not think we are overly interested in him. We have a strong central midfield atm (Doc, Jack, McCrorie, Dorrans and Arfield) and I see no need to bring in someone like McGinn.

SG needs to concentrate on our defence, we will need to CB's and LB and RB to cover for Tav and John (2 players I think SG will see as key players) .

I honestly don't think we are as far away from Celtic as the recent scorelines suggest, we are 4/ 5 signings away from challenging. we need to remember it was only about a month ago we thought we could mount a late challenge. Turn Ibrox into a fortress and Rodgers will be worried.

That was a great game yesterday for Gerrard to watch as it was our whole season in one game: losing silly goals, a good bit of fight but no real leadership, throwing it away, victim of poor refereeing, some good attacking play and goals from midfield. He should have learned a lot just by watching that game.

You are say we need cover for tav. I think we need to replace tav he Is great going forward but seriously never a defender 2 off the goals yesterday he could have done a lot better! We need to move him up the park RM imo!

Cannon - I completely agree, from a neutral point of view it was an outstanding game and showed SG what is good and bad about our team.

CD Ranger - I think the Tav / Candieas partnership has been the best thing about our season and I hope Gerrard sticks with them. If we had decent CB's then we would not be worried about Tav's defensive ability.

Also meant to add Rossiter and Windass into the mix for CM. I honestly would struggle to pick a midfield 3 out of them without leaving out a decent player.

Get rid off tav cost us three goals yesterday. More than half goals we lose involved him

14 May 2018 14:59:05
Actually watched goals agin, Tav directly involved in loss off goals, 2,3,4 and 5

14 May 2018 15:31:04
He's a rm not rb. Like mccrorie a cdm not a Cb. Why do we play players out of position I have no idea. Dorrans and windass another two out of position. Dorrans attacking midfielder and windass a striker.

As I keep saying we need to half goals conceded, won't achieve that with Tav in team.
Get a defender who can defend first and foremost. Also if we want to win league Tav would not do in midfield

Jboy if we had two centre backs worthy of the name and McCrorie filling in the gaps, Tavernier could then patrol the flank with Candeias to greater effect, like John and maybe Murphy on the other side. It's not what Tav is doing that's the main issue here, it's the incompetence of those who should have his back.

In saying that, we've had stacks of coaches and 'managers' who have stuck with a failed system week in, week out, when it was crying out for us to play three at the back to compensate for our weaknesses. Tav is a victim of their incompetence. We all know he can't defend, but he can certainly play down that flank. We just need some tactical nous to use him to best effect.

Burnbank, I don't agree, will be surprised if candelas gets many games, we won't win league with guys like Tav and candelas in team

14 May 2018 22:35:33
Been saying for ages if we get upwards of £3m for tav then we take it but i'd keep him and look for a solid right back and play him 1 forward as right mid/ winger and it means that you have cover for right back if any injuries.
