Right lads been a few days now since our first competitive match under Steven gerrard. I’m in costa adeje, couldn’t see the match but from what I’m hearing and reading it wasn’t great. Managed to follow on the live chat on here and got into a spat with a few as some of the posts were imo bang out of order. Are we not prepared to give this new era time and indeed a chance? New management, new players, new system? Some of these guys will never have been to a stadium or full house like that never mind playing in front of them. I understand there were 6 or 7 playing from last season but these guys will also need time to adjust to the changes. I know we need to hit the ground running give me a 2-0 victory in Europe any day of the week. Thoughts lads

I don’t like bashing Rangers fans but by **** some of them are thick, moaning about last nights result. We controlled the game. Scored two, clean sheet, and never looked in danger, IF we had a finisher it could’ve been 5! A great result and a good performance for our first competitive hit out and its European competition. A team with 5/ 6 new players starting including 3 of the back 4 and the keeper. We are still in pre season teams and combinations take time to gel. It’s no FIFA or Football Manager. Give them a break. I’ll judge them in December until then they deserve time and a bit of PATIENCE! 🔴⚪️💙

I suppose you had to see it for yourself sharpshooter. We basically played the same as last season although we definitely looked more solid in defence. In saying that though, the team we played against didn't even look as good as a Junior side - they were very poor and still managed to hit the cross bar and put us under some pressure at corners.

I'm hoping that Sadiq is a deadly finisher because we need one to help and support Morelos, even just to shoulder the responsibility.

Also we need someone in midfield that can put there foot on the ball and control a game of football - maybe coulibaly will be the answer?

Personally the guy Mulumbu from Kilmarnock hasn't signed with anyone yet. We should definitely try and sign him even for a year or two. For me he was the player of the season last year.

In general though in regard to giving someone time. I think Gerrard will get less time than anyone has ever had at Ibrox. We have had to watch terrible football for years and think most fans are fed up. The expectation level is so high that Gerrard simply needs to get it right and soon.

Which begs the question, why persist with Morelos and Windass from last season? A striker should have been the priority. I'm glad the defence looks solid now and we have plenty of midfield players but we need to put games to bed much sooner this season!

Great post sharpshootersPOM. SG and his team will quickly work out that any of last seasons players are simply not good enough if we get any decent money for morelos or windass i would bite their hand off. i still say tav can't defend and should play in advanced role. murphy is the one exception and will do well. Almost a full new team is required and this will take a litte time. SG and co will get it right. he is quickly working out the players who he knows he can rely on and the individuals who have let the club down far too many times in the past

I was at the game on Thursday and it worryingly echoed the European home tie last year. Good control in the first half, missed a few chances and looked like cannot sustain the intensity required over the full game. I think most would agree this was the story of last season. I think there are some good signs and it is always difficult this early in the season.

My biggest concern is that Candeas and Windass do no to have what it takes to play for Rangers and Tavernier was caught out of position on at least 3 occasions. Against better opposition we will be found out. If we are to challenge for the league, these guys are not good enough.

I do agree Morelos and Windass should not be our front 2? The amount of chances last year missed was dreadful and we need another striker in🇬🇧

Apart from looking solid at the back (against who?, ) It was scarily similar to last season. As far as I know hibs haven't paid millions for a striker, & they got the job done first time of asking!
I appreciate there are lots of changes and things will hopefully develop, but show me something Stevie G.

14 Jul 2018 10:23:05
I agree we look solid at the back and totally support mr g and his new backroom team but windass and morellos are as bad as last season and just ain't good enough.

I asked on here couple of weeks ago who else thought we were short of some quality players to win league. I was shot down re candaes, windlass and Morelos.
They need to become bench players, although I do like Morelos.
Also Tav has to defend first and foremost caught out three times at least.

Zikos you obv have no clue about the levels in football. The opposition didn’t look as good as a junior side? Seriously lol. The levels are enormous! Junior teams playing in Scottish cup prove that.
Opposition were set up to frustrate and kept a solid shape. It was our second competitive game and fans need a reality check. I’d take a win and a clean sheet in Europe every day of the week. They will have to come out now and i'd expect us to exploit the spaces and score a few more goals and keep a clean sheet.

Scotty123, That was exactly my point! If schkupi (sorry for the spelling) were to enter the Scottish cup at the same level as some of the junior teams then they would get knocked out pretty quickly.

They say there isn't any easy games in Europe, well that had to be the easiest, and they still hit the crossbar and put us under pressure at corners.

In regard to being well set up. You don't have to be a professional team to be well organised, look at Iceland.

Gerrard should try and arrange some close door matches so he can nail down his best eleven. Watching the game the other night it seemed he was still experimenting.
