Hello bears
After watching tav the last few games he's been having a mare in my opinion delivery has been poor shooting etc would like to see Flanagan at right back to see what he's like because he gets caught out at left back all the time. Hope barisic is back soon.

Biggest disappointment for me regarding tav is he doesn't lead players when the going gets tough. Saw yesterday him hanging his head and shrugging his shoulders. Really need a captain who's going to scream and shout and demand better.

04 Nov 2018 11:11:27
I genuinely think sell him to West Brom in January. Can probably get £6m plus for him that can be reinvested in the squad. Candeias can play right back no problem, he's no worse defensively that Tav and can put in a shift up and down the flank.

04 Nov 2018 11:42:36
I just don’t rate Flanagan. Am sure many will disagree. But I think he looks lost past the halfway line.

04 Nov 2018 12:01:37
Not overly impressed by Flannigan.

He looks slow and agree finty he is clueless going forward.

If we sell tav we would need a new right back and get Katic back in the team as well.

04 Nov 2018 12:11:26
Screaming and Shouting does NOT make you a leader.

04 Nov 2018 12:26:20
I agree with all comments above I don’t rate worrel either would rather katic playing with goldson.

04 Nov 2018 12:58:25
It's more than just the screaming and shouting . That at least shows that your passionate . Tav doesn't suit and your right shrugs his shoulders hangs his head . Not good enough in terms of attitude, he has to motivate those around him and encourage those who is confidence is low and guide the players on the park . He doesn't do any of that for me. Take the money and run in Jan.

04 Nov 2018 13:07:03
I think Goldson looks a better player with Katic beside him.

04 Nov 2018 13:31:35
As far as I can see, big connor goldson is a quality player playing beside both katic and worrall. The big man in my eyes is different class.

04 Nov 2018 13:47:11
Tav Goldson Katic and Barisic would be my first choice back four.
Lots of comments about Tav and admittedly he has momentarily had a loss of form.
If he was to leave in the transfer window which hopefully he doesn't but every player has a price.
Who would SG sign to replace him?

04 Nov 2018 13:48:55
Ive said before and will repeat this. Tav is a goid player and scored some important goals with equal assists, however for me he is not ready to be a Rangers captain. He has lost his way a bit, maybe because he's captain he automatically thinks he'll play every game. I would drop him, play Katic at left back and try Flanagan at his natural right back. Rangers might need to sell him, going by reports we're 14 million in the red!

04 Nov 2018 14:37:07
Definitely not a captain for me his last 3 have been poor only getting away with it because he’s taking penalties.

04 Nov 2018 14:00:37
Agree that tav shouldn’t be captain, good player but not a leader and a captain has to demand standards of players during a game and he doesn’t do that for me, also agree with Katic ahead of worrall, who would you guys suggest as captain, for me mcgregor.

04 Nov 2018 14:05:27
I would play flanagan at right back, said this at the start of the season. The ball doesn't stick up top. We need to have a rb and lb that defend first and keep it tight, not expose us. Flanagan rb and barasic lb. We need a creative midfielder and another st. Go 442. Before anyone says we haven't won when we go with two up top, that's because the balance of players have been wrong👍. Mcgregor, flanagan, goldson, katic, barasic, tav, jack, creative mid, kent, lafferty, morelos. When we play one up top, teams sit tight, we then play wide and fire aimless crosses in to no one🙃👍.

04 Nov 2018 15:00:51
Flanagan is a right back not a left back.

04 Nov 2018 15:30:45
Coldo, i agree with some of your points mate, but if you're saying that you want our right back and left back to defend first and foremost, then yes flanagan but barisic is the exact same as tav, on the left! He leaves gaps like tav, as he likes to go forward just like tav does, on the right! So if you're having a go at tav, surely to god, you have to say the exact same regarding barisic? I like modern day wingbacks that do go forward and as long as you can accommodate that, its fine by me. I like both tav and barisic and think both should be our right and left wingbacks!

04 Nov 2018 15:56:38
On the Flannigan debate he’s carrying an injury has been since arrived that’s from someone at club.

{Ed0333's Note - maybe

04 Nov 2018 17:10:11
Coops we don't play with wingbacks so I'm not sure why you always go on about them. We play with FULLBACKS who's first job is to defend, yes by all means get forward and get involved but you have to defend first and fore most playing fullbsck, tav is a weapon for us (except last couple) but teams are definately targeting him defensively.

04 Nov 2018 17:14:35
Did you read my post coop? Where am I having a go at tav? I have pushed tav up to rm and flanagan to rb its called playing to our strengths👍. Barasic is much better at defending than tav👍.

04 Nov 2018 17:18:01
If he is injured he shouldn't be playing, never mind playing him out of position as well. Katic at LB really 6ft 5 and you want to play him at LB, surely you would want him in the middle instead of worral. We should be using worral as cover for katic not the other way around. Katic is our player and at his age the more you play him the better he can become, we will not benefit from developing worral but we will benefit from katic and as far as I can see worral is not better than katic and I feel Goldson looks better next to katic. For me the problem this season has been the centre of the park, nobody has that killer pass in them, there is also nobody there to drive the ball forward from our box to the opposition box.

04 Nov 2018 18:08:21
Frustrated blue, i can assure you that both tav and barisic play like wingbacks, so i don't understand what you don't get about that pal!

04 Nov 2018 20:27:36
Aye they play like it, but there not, like I said we don't play with wingbacks. They are full backs in our system we play so there first job is to stop crosses and defend. Maybe if you stopped going on about how good a wingback he is you could notice we play 4 at the back = fullback,

05 Nov 2018 06:23:18
You don't need to teach me pal! I most certainly know we play 4 at the back, with our both full backs given licence, to get up and down the wings, which in my book makes them modern day wingbacks, because like you said, both tav and barisic play like wingbacks, debate over!

06 Nov 2018 20:24:50
6 m for tav is very optimistic. maybe 3.5.

06 Nov 2018 20:25:06
Tavernier is a far better player than Flanagan. Be careful what you wish for here, you don't know what you've got till it's gone. We are trying to improve in every transfer window and here we have fans who want to sell the best right back in Scotland.

To get a player better than him to come up here would cost a lot of money that needs spent on other areas of the team. I'm only glad it's Gerrard making these decisions and not a committee of fans, as we'd be bringing back McKay, Macleod, Windass, Waghorn and all the other duds we've suffered in the past. Foster for right back anyone?

06 Nov 2018 20:27:52
Love seeing posts about going 4-4-2 as of it's a more attacking formation than 4-3-3. Problem isn't the formation, it's the lack of quality at our disposal in the attacking positions. We dominate these games, that's what the structure brings.

People criticise Tav, but he's usually the only guy who's trying to penetrate. I hope Flanagan was injured v Killie, otherwise he just has no mobility. Tav is one of our best players, that's why he's played every game. He does need to give up on the corners though.

06 Nov 2018 20:32:34
Goalie, it was a £14m loss, even more in the red than that.

06 Nov 2018 21:07:04
Wingbacks fullbacks they are defenders first and foremost, Tav seems to think he is a midfielder and defends poorly in my opinion.
