Rangers Rumours 2

Another OAP pension fund to set up! Young hungry kids out of Murray PKU!
18 May 2013 16:55:07
Typical mcmoist signing, want players the same age as him
What worries me more is the op declaring miller is coming "home"!
Celtic fan here Why do rangers fans come onhere and constatly want there club to go after ex-players. Is is bewildering If celtic were going after ex-players there would be up roar
18 May 2013 15:39:47
Doubt it when he's on £14k a week and the 8th highest payed player in the mls
Kenny miller not a free so how can he sign
Would this be the same jim delahunt who only a couple of seasons ago said 'my understanding is that gary o'connor will sign for rangers'. The guys clueless!
If any signings were true Jabba would have Keith J rolling with his reporter of the year exclusives. Nothing getting released as nobody will be signed up until the board is cleaned out by green and Ahmad and McCoist gets replaced by Stuart McCall.

Championship club or SFL Div 2, its a no brainer for the lad. Need to look elsewhere.
There are a number of football players that would prefer to play in SFL 2 in front of 40,000 to 50,000 every alternative weekend and enjoy the publicity of being part of the story that sees Rangers return to their rightful position at the top of Scottish Football.
10,000, even 15,000 is no big deal and one has to assume that in due course the glory days will return for Rangers and with it, wages that are in line with those at Celtic Park.
I spoke to Cammy Bell in Annan last night where he's from and he said that he's signed a 4 year deal with the club, with John Daly and Nicky Law coming in as well.
I really think Law would struggle in the championship. If you look at the teams in it there is a lot of quality players. I am guessing that it would be a lower championship side who would be battling relegation. I would doubt he would play much however he will earn much more money
I doubt cammy bell would disclose to anyone what contract he has signed if he has signed with anyone yet after the fran sandaza saga so I doubt very much your story is true and also the john daly and nicky law deals are far from done deals as there is doubts over the future of our club so when you have real stories then we will be glad to read them.

He's good enough for the SFL 2 no problem and SPL when it arrives.
Good shout mate what do all the bears think of mcpake and is he out of contract. jmgers
Think mcpake would be worth a punt wouldn't cost us a lot in wages plus he's still fairly young
Arfield was an excellent young player at Falkirk and could easily play for the Gers.

Hees pish a played in same team as him useless and I am a season ticket holder at ibrox
How did you play with him if you were watching THE Rangers with your S. T?
17 May 2013 15:15:53
There is More chance our manager signing Dougie Donnely!

Even if there was a fee it would be minimal for a second division Scottish player
Don't you think Rangers would have checked that out first before making a move?
Oh look another sports journalist that has information no one else has. James
This would have been known by everyone before talks began. Get a grip.
Why would there be a fee?
Check it out first -emmm no!
1)Minimal fees are massive fees if you're broke
They are due money for bringing him through the ranks. the same fee sone aluko paid himself to aberdeen
He didn't 'come though the ranks' he came from peterhead less than 2 years ago
Why did sone aluko pay money then?
Rangers have to pay a fee as compensation as he's under 23
Nominal fee would be due as compensation. As someone pointed out, it was the same thing with Aluko. If the player is under a certain age (either 21 or 24), his previous club is due something. I believe this is a UEFA/FIFA stipulation.
Find out what qos paid Peterhead and double it
Hes signed and queens are getting ian russel fae partick to replace him heard it from nick himself
16 May 2013 11:33:38
I quite like McPake as a player.
When McPake isn't playing for Hibs it's because his back is done, but going by Ally signings he'll get a pension. sorry contract!
Mcpake is in contract til end of next season. need a fee i'm afraid.
No I'm from coventry where he used to play and he is a Celtic fan me and him used to have banter

Never been a huge admirer of walter smith as a manager however if he walks away from rangers us rangers fans really should be worried! We need answers now!
He'll have to walk if he is to hold on to his integrity.
True to who's word? The Daily Records? its called a rumour until he comes out and says otherwise. I think its safe to say the club hasn't been run well for the past 2-3 years under Whyte/Green - if Walter walks because people are trying to change that then I ain't sure that's a bad thing.
Seems like the tooth fairy has visited Myth and left him something under his pillow. he's changed sides again. TTTS
Yes, it is not looking good as the wolves fight over the scraps.
Looks like setting up an EGM will take time and it is probably just to force resignations in the short term. (Herald "The requisitioning of the EGM requires the support of 10% of the shareholders and, once validated, the board of directors has 21 days in which to circulate details of the EGM motions to all shareholders, then set the date for the EGM within 28 days of the notice. ) However if an EGM went ahead I assume all shareholders can attend or at least those registered as members with the company? If so it might be the best opportunity for supporters to get some answers from the board members and larger share holders. As suggested elsewhere uniting the shareholder supporter proxy votes under the RST might give fans a bit more voice.
"its safe to say the club hasn't been run well for the past 2-3 years under Whyte/Green" . the blame for the current trouble lies at one mans door and that's neither Whyte or Green.
This is awful news. We are about to head for another administration. Trust me here. Green has his men on this forum and other forums trying to plant the seed of Smith and McCoists disruption. Morgan and Easdales are bad news.
"As suggested elsewhere uniting the shareholder supporter proxy votes under the RST might give fans a bit more voice. "
I don't like the idea of the Easdales buying Greens shares and getting place on the board, Rangers fans maybe but they are definitely not what we need in a business sense. They are in the same mould as Green and White.
Walter shouldn't walk away.
What happened to the statement from green that no person would hold more than 10% of the shares at any one time?
Blakie of on the buses is a bad move, just being appointed to protect Greens interests he's just another front man, if what's been blogged is true this is a complicated web of fraud and deceit which won't go away until all the palms have been greased, at the expense of the fans
What happened to the statement from green that no person would hold more than 10% of the shares at any one time?
15 May 2013 13:40:10
Only heard of two of them, May and Clarke, the rest "who are they"?
Being a rangers fan from greenock I also know of michael tidser as he plays for morton, he's rated highly through out the first division and by st mirren and aberdeen as I've read in our local paper, fast creative midfielder, first I've heard of this rumour though. James
All young enough players but are they better than what we already have?
John Paul Kissock? your having a laff.
John Paul Kissock is a great player! Tdiser has another year at morton, brilliant player
Tidser just signed a contract extension at morton.

SPL? You know nothing!
Not before Xmas legally
15 May 2013 00:04:13
15 May 2013 10:44:18
To all those mocking the poster for mentioning the SPL, where are we hoping to be in two years? We wouldn't be looking to bring in people to run the club only to be told they have to go if we get into the SPL! It's called forward planning (admittedly not our greatest strength)
Sorry I didn't mean the spl. ment the new set up the sfl, but honestly it has been approved and they will buy greens shares and yes I no its not allowed before xmas but its happening
The responsibility of carrying out a fit & proper test is with the Football Club not with any of the football associations.
The aim won't allow shares to pass hands so how can they buy them?
Is it not possible that Green is using the idea of selling his shares to the Easdales to bump up his asking price?
Rangers can sign daly any time if he is a free agent but can register him to play on the 1st of September from which he can play football as he is a free agent. If we had to buy him he would only be able to play at Christmas.
Does green not only own 8% and was the biggest single shareholder. the maths are not quite right there i'm afraid
Those two crolla I know them personaly wouldn't go near them with a barge pole Same circus diferent clowns
14 May 2013 17:03:15
Phew! I thought for a second it was the assets!
Shdnt make any difference m8 still no transparency no answers no shirt sponsor or renaming financial information still the same diff team still the same management team still no ST for me! Do you they really think fans are so daft. just sounds like a desperate act to me what the f*@k is going on?
I'm sure I seen a few months ago our shirt sponsors are Puma and Blackthorn Cider no? Just me?
Reluctantly freezing. they always wanted to and this is good for supporters bad for business loosing money
In the current climate people don't have the money to throw at their football club. People are very selective in the matches they attend now as they are looking at value for money. For Rangers to freeze season ticket prices it must mean there is concern about the number of books they will sell, let's be honest that's why Celtic did the same with their discount. if the Rangers budgets are set based on a 20% increase in ticket prices then this will have a serious knock on in terms of player purchases etc.
Why would rangers care about celtic slashing their prices to entice fans back. We are practically sold out every other week. We were told rangers fought reconstruction so they could hike ticket prices. Yet now we are told by the darkside that we had to keep them the same to sell tickets.
Almost sold out every week, aye right, dream on. There are 15000 empty seats every week at Ibrox unless there is a call to battle. Well, the reason you should care is that if Celtic are cutting their prices and Rangers are increasing who are going to be more unhappy with that? Unhappy fans don't spend money and we all know what will happen if you guys don't all give them your money very soon.
14 May 2013 16:22:53
But still no renewal date why??
14 May 2013 14:12:57
Next season I believe that we will see a different player and a player that shows all the skill that he showed at Hearts.
Black would be my first choice to go, looks unfit and going through the motions for an easy payday, he can't pass, can't cross, slows the game down at every opportunity & believe it or not can't tackle.
So please tell me which club is going to meet Black's salary because youv'e already said he hasn't played up to ypur standards? £7k a week for a painter and decorator, therein lies your problems, nobody wanted him at the end of last season then you offer him £7k a week, you couldn't make it up!
14 May 2013 15:23:12
Who would want him. When he signed he had no club remember. As you say he has hardly tore the division up!
How long is his contract for? Might cost more in compensation fees.
I thought he may improve with someone in the midfield to help him. but as you say on these wages he should be helping others. he patently is not, so as you say get rid and try and find a partner for the impressive McLoed
I agree with the first post, everything in our team is early days at the moment. Give him more time
Totally agree. Black has done nothing to suggest that he will be of benefit to the team in the coming couple of years. I though Rangers played better when he was injured. He is too defensive minded and is always prone to a pointless and avoidable booking.
If we are honest, very few of the players have done anything worth getting excited about this past season. The defence excluding Wallace has been a disaster and if we are looking to exit players then Cribari and the Greek fellow along with one or two of the other so called centre backs should be on their way and for me Shiels should be on his way unless he develops a heart and some backbone.
14 May 2013 20:10:15
I can't believe professional footballers require more time. in the real world which one of us would be given a year in any of our jobs to get it right. in his case still not right. Paid more than any of us to kick a ball, keep fit and earn a fortune, get on with it!
I can believe ally needs more time
Give Black another year, he could be a different player next season. Remember Mark Hately, everyone wanted him sold after his 1st season which was shocking but look how different he was after that.
Who would buy back - nobody else wants him when he was for free- stuck with him & another drain on wages
Ian black is the worst rangers player ever'''' not thro talent but sheer mind set. he is a total person and couldn't care less and shouldn't be allowed to wear the gersy
I could not agree more. it was a mistake to sign him in the first place. no one in the bottem 3 divisions play with a sitting midfielder. we need a playmaker in there. we need to sort out the center of defence first.
In a scrappy league he has made scrappy tackles, your right in saying he slows the play down but I doubt for one second Ally signed him thinking this boy is going to set the place on fire if anything it was quite the opposite, we desperately needed leaders and arguably still do Ian Black is exactly that and not only that when the opposition is on the attack he will do everything humanely possible to break up play, it may not be pretty but in these leagues at this level its a necessatiy. He is maybe on too much money but at the time we were desperate for numbers and experience, he does the dirty work on the field the type of player I love playing with because it means he plays the 6 yard pass to me when he gets it and I can run at the defence!
14 May 2013 11:20:48
There is no need this is all a farce we are just getting told thing's that the club want to be made public if it was that bad they would have taken action by now
Listen timmy what is your point this has nothing to do with the club if we have been scammed again am sure nothing will happen its just the fans that suffer again. green has done the rite thing and stepped aside the quicker he sells his shares in in good faith the better. clubs needs cleaned from top to bottom but I can't see it happining because their are to many cling ons. kev
What gets said on this incriminating tape that proves cg was a front cw then
Kev, you been in hibernation for last 18 months? The fact is that rangers were given a provisional SFA licence last minute to be in the Ramsden Cup. the so called 5 way agreement - one of the clauses is the fit and proper person test. So you think CW still being involved is OK. or are we still got heads in sand and denying CW involved. of course he is involved! its obvious that a simple task of renaming the stadium cannot take place because he is involved in the ownership. get the heads out of the sand
Tapes are not necessarily heard in context. also people say things to some folk that ain't really true shall I say.
Whyte releasing tapes to expose Green, same time Someone exposing boardroom minutes (? when did that last happen) to frame malcolm murry.
Trustworthy directors worth thier weight in gold. as they WONT risk the club on a reckless gamble.

Why not sign Clark and may! Tom Harley for rb Steven smith lb and zalikus from hearts all affordable
Both would be good it's a fair point on may good record and is good player
Watched him for alloa last year with my alloa alloa fan mate and may wasn't as good as people think, he scores goals but was never in the game I watched
Russell, Zalikus, Hateley and the rest will all want wages you know!
Heard Rooney wants away from Man. U. He would also do a job! Johnny Russell your having a laugh, that's why your in a mess, you can't afford these players and you can't get rid of the rubbish you gave 3/4yr contracts too. Come and join us in the real world!
Jonny Russell? the same guy who's courting offers from Catania (mid table Serie a). Be serious lads come on.
OR play andy little at centre forward, he scored 25 goals last season despite getting messed around all over the place in the first half of the season
Telling us we can't afford russell paying wages like this got us in this mess but opening shot about rooney get a grip could youse afford rooney he is a celtic supporter why don't youse go after him tmwnn
Opening line about Rooney was sarcasm, as for US going for him because he is a Celtic man, that's why we are stable financially because we know we can't afford his salary. Remember the famous"for every fiver" statement, that's why you are where you are!
12 May 2013 05:25:44
Good for him to show a bit of ambition
Cant blame players for wanting to leave the boring scottish game. maybe some of the big stars of the spl will want to try and prove there true potential in the epl rather than playing it safe in the spl
Leeds are a great club who can blame him mm
Did he not just sign a new deal? If so there will have to be a small transfer fee surely.
The same Leeds who do not have permanent manager yeah ok then
This is a lie he signed a new deal and wants to play for rangers. sfl and the spl are better than epl
More nonsense he might be going to Leeds aye and he might be going to Arsenal and Everton as well
A small transfer fee, lol. Rangers have 20m in bank, no debt, he signed a 5 year deal, is classed as best youngster at club, 1st team regular would take multi millions to get him just now. Not saying we would get offered that, doubt we would so he won't be leaving anytime soon I suspect
Everything was going ok till you said 20m in the bank. honestly do you think for 1 minute
I'll have some of what the last posters having, MULTI MILLIONS of smarties, heehaw!
Lewis is a fine young player, but he's only got about 20 or so first team games under his belt (most at 3rd Division level).
Eh! Leeds do have a permanent manager in Brian McDermott
Yep, whoever left the comment bout Leeds not having a manager is a balloon!
Whoever posted about lewis going to leeds is a bigger ballloon then eh
11 May 2013 20:42:43
Where did he say this?
Here we go again more crap lies from somebody who knows nothing about rangers where did he say that ih wait a minute he didn't Daly is on a free and we will be getting some players out so how on earth can we not afford him just laughable
Sensible Celtic supporter here. Surely it's not rocket science. get best players from div 1/2 to help with promotion. You don't need money grabbing premier league players to gain promotion. Great chance here to build a young hungry team that will reap rewards in the future. be that in future transfer fees or a successful team.
Sadly agree with sensible Celtic fan. We do not need to spend any transfer money. Adam Rooney and Gomis are on frees at the Brum, Nicky Law, obviously Clark, Daly but we all know we need 2 centre halfs. I would take Boca back on a reduced wage for a season but Goian, no thanks. There are plenty of others that are available. i'm not too happy that we are paying Lee Mcculloch 16k a week no matter how loyal he has been. How short of pace was he last weekend? Novo, no thanks, still can't control the ball. Miller, Boyd no thanks. I wanna see young players with sell on potential coming.
12 May 2013 10:28:09
Here we go again if you don't like what we here then its a celtic supporter who said it, well believe me, i'm a rangers supporter and even I know we can't afford wages of jon dalys expectations and if ally thinks that we even need players in that bracket then, what has he learned from the past year or so, I will tell you absolutly nothing, still wants to be the biggest spender, which he learned from walter , advocatt and souness 3 men guilty of helping bring our club down
12 May 2013 11:38:52
Yes I would want colin stein back as well would run through a brick wall for Rangers
If we are to move forward as a club we must forget about signing diddies like miller and boyd. Also people go on about mcculloch cause he's stuck by the club. He is in his thirties not to mention the fact that he is rank rotten. Just think of the young players at teams like livingston and falkirk who could be brought in with mccullochs wages. Mccoist isn't bold enough to make these type of decisions and i'm almost certain the football next season will be as dire as this season!
Celtic fan here. mcculloch rank rotten? have you got rocks in your head? he has been THEE class player of the rangers, and quite frankly, you would have REALLY struggled without him. instead of just struggled! DD
If I'm being honest Jon daly has not scored many goals and won't be any good for rangers especially when we can get 2 or 3 good young players with the wages he's on plus he doesn't score that many goals
Mcculloch sums up everthing that has been wrong with rangers for years. No skill, no pace, no control equals big lumps up the park!
So most of the bears on
Any Rangers fan that slags McCulloch off are of there head, guy has saved our bacon this year.
Big lee has carried us all season and we missed him when he was out injured. Also been saying for years we don't need Tom, Dick or Harry on 10k a week we only need players of the quality of league were playing in!
Mcculloch is pure guff! Ibrox season ticket holder 14 years just incase u question my loyalties!
That makes it much better, £7k a week for a hammer thrower. brilliant, thanks for cheering me up on a sunday night lol
Daly is going to sign for rfc. I hope rangers get back boyd novo miller thomson and smith. would like to see burke come back to rangers we need him for the midfield
Bring boyd, thomson, smith and miller back? I dispair!
Then u don't want the best for rfc.
If these players were rubbish then how when they played for rfc they won silverware and been champions.
I have an idea, why not just field the legends team. It is amazing. Last year when Rangers started in Div3 everyone said it was the perfect time to give youth a chance, build a team from the academy, look to the future. Now, fast forward less than 12 months and all of a sudden it is get him, what about him can we have 2 of them as well. All of these players you talk about are now years older, yards slower, pounds heavier and if truth be told, worse than they were the 1st time round. Please don't be confused with wee Nacho loving Rangers, I am sure you guys all love them as well but that doesn't mean you are going to get a few thousand a week to play for them. He wasn't a prolific goalscorer when he was there first time round so why would he all of a sudden be the saviour now, to be honest he couldn't trap a dead rat in a phonebox but that is just my opinion. You need a couple of experienced heads in there and you have them, Mcculloch, Black and Wallace, there is also Templeton. Add in the boy from QOS to score some goals for you and then you start to fill the other positions with youth players, players who have been nurtured for this very day, that will be more than enough to win Div2 then next year you add a wee bit more to that and when you get back to the SPL there will be money available to bring in some quality. Maybe that is all pie in the sky but it is rational pie in the sky. Allymac
Have the people who are slagging McCulloch realised what has happened in the last year?
Surely we only need players for premotion this buy youngsters with sell on value don't make sence surely our under 17 s the once that beat celtic in cup final a coupleof weeks ago will be the full team when we get back to top league
1st it was a £10m warchest now we can't afford 2 free transfersand with our wage bill of over £7m (and that's just the playing squad) its not sustainable lads
We don't need players like jon daly, he'll be there to pick up a pay check and not play for the gers only there for the money. rangers should be raiding 1st and 2nd division players ' players that need and want to prove themselfs ' i'd rather get 110% out of a okay player than get 40% from a not bad player ' ie look at ian black and what he has contributed?? nothing but red cards and insults. total scheme rat '
11 May 2013 21:40:41
Ffs gee the guy a break. He played a game the day before for his team, flew over for this CHARITY match and was probably to eager to impress. He's blue blooded and the type of character wee need.
No he, s not we need a young player who we can sell on and make money on so we can move on with the club, no going back move on Rangers please move on
FFS stop living in he past. Bring in decent young talent and move on. Last thing you need ( yes I support Celtic) is money grabbing ex players. Bring through young talent that can be moved on for a decent profit. As much as it may stick in the throat the business model at parkhead is maybe worth copying.
No thanks nacho!
So Novo is a legend now The guy was a £50 grand player no bette rthan that at his peak And now you wajnr him back You would be as well as asking for Peter McCloy to go in goals ya muppett
Jd is right guys, the Parkhead model is the way forward for us. We should have been ahead of the game with Murray Park, but as usual someone along the way has balsed it up. We need to be producing our own talent and nurturing it rather than bringing in high paid mercenaries, who let's face it haven't been upto the job in division 3 (Kyle and Sandaza immediately spring to mind)
Novo was one of the most important and valuable players we have had, winner against Red Star got us into the Champs League, goal against Pana (away), Hibs on Helicopter Sunday.
Get real we let him go before, because he was crap

Aye its a blue top with white shorts made by puma and sponsored by blackthorn
There is definitely a 'RFC' badge on it somewhere.
Not yet mate but funny feeling that its going to be dreadful, go and have a look at either Newcastles, Motherwells, Wolves or Feyeenord kits, they've all been released, their PUMA and their dreadful IMO.
New Italy home top looks alright
10 May 2013 17:08:13
Nicky law has signed a 4 year deal with the ibrox club
No he hasn't!
You are blethering he is in Glasgow just now just saw him outside ibrox
Maybe so, however he has 3 championship clubs after him with better deals on the table!
10 May 2013 14:21:26
Better not sign him if he's ill.
Two zantac and a co codomol and he will be right as rain. jmgers
Well here we are 8 20 Friday evening oh and guess what Nicky Clarke DID NOT SIGN TODAY another misinformed post he will sign but not today so don't lie
Is it nicky Clark or sicky Clark who will sign for rangers today
Such poor troll comments, its a rumour no big deal but kinda sad every person who seems to post a comment is victim to abuse and lies if you just watch this to troll people I suggest u go elsewhere like xbox? just sayin
If and when he signs for us I hope he can do what he has done last season scoring 40+ goals. Hopefully get 8 or 9 capable bodies in.
Who are you offloading to get 8/9 capable bodies in?
People aren't trolls on here it's people keep posting rubbish on here so they need to be exposed as liars because they keep posting nonsense just like you're comments about trolls
Maybe somone needs to explain the definition of rumour to some people then? and who are you to judge if somone is telling lies? a rumour is just that a rumour somthing someone has heard from somone else not all rumours come true this doesn't make them liars
End if day the clown who posted this about Nicky Clark must feel like a right balloon for posting absolute craps false lies on here we are a week on and guess what he still hasn't SIGNED
10 May 2013 11:38:44
There is no shirt deal
09 May 2013 18:14:38
Good, it was absolutely ridiculous the way that Sandaza was treated
It will never happen, at best all he can hope for is winning his case and making us pay his contract in full but he will never wear a Gers top again. We treated him very poorly. Put yourself in his boots, if he wins would you want to come back to the club who treated you in that way?
Hard done by? we gave him 4 x wages for a start increasing each year to 10K then HIS greed got the better of him no one else offered him that money for his goal return good riddince!
The guy got a very serious injury and never had a run if games. Mccoists one man up front and out very poor midfield never helped him when he did play. He showed glimpses of what he could do. One of his last games at Ibrox he was the best player on the park and did everything but score. Why was he sacked? What did he do? Nothing that most players would not have done. He was just unlucky that he was set up and recorded by a taxi driver.
Sandasa won't be near ibrox as a player or supporter he was not treated bad he tried to treat us like mugs and got caught out I hope he learned something through his stupidity
The guy is pants let's just leave it at that, he openly spoke about leaving Ibrox if the money was right. bye bye see if you ever get near a club of RANGERS stature ever again! covGER
I think some rangers fans need a reality check. Sandy was on those ridic wages cause you signed a spl player for div 3.
Sandanza is holding all the aces here. He was sacked for at best, a very minor offence. Fair enough, he should have kept his mouth shut but it was not a sacking offence. The club could not wait to get rid of him as he was injured and not playing well not to mention the vastly inflated wages he was wrongly given be the club to play in the 3rd division. Rangers are going to get hammered with this Not only will he receive due wages, but he will sue for damages to his reputation which will cost the club dearly. Nothing is getting done right at Ibrox- the place is an absolute mess.

Ally and his 2 year deals with sliding increase in salary again. This will be the issue trying to get the wages under the new ceiling, all the dross Ally signed over the last year we can't get rid of and paying more for less until their two year contracts expire!
Smith is a left-back. sure he can play left-mid but is primarily a left back. If this rumour is true what does this suggest about Lee Wallace's position at the club next year?
He was a good prospect but hampered by injuries. If he is coming back let's hope he is fully fit. We can't afford to bring in players with a long history of injury (same goes for Kevin Thomson)
If Smith is happy to warm the bench & isn't on ridiculous wages then now probs. We have no direct back-up for Wallace.
Cover for Lee Wallace is an absolute must. In fact I'd push Lee higher up the pitch
A bit injury prone in his last spell with the club, however we need a bit more experience in defence.

I'm sick of reading all this crap about 'hopefully with a new manager' and 'the dross ally signed'. He had no choice when he signed the 'dross' he brought in what he could, these players were not his first or probably second or third choice signings. Let him sign who he wants for next season and see if the team plays different. What did you all expect last season?
Completely agree with the above post. Many fans have clearly forgotten that we only received our license to play a day or two before our first match. Before that we couldn't sign players so Ally had a very limited time to build a squad. There are too many people on here determined to criticise the loyal few who stuck around after liquidation. I'd rather have them than the ones who abandoned us in our hour of need.
