Hi,
First post on here. I've been reading and watching our transfer activity with great anticipation and like everyone, I've played with the formations of players myself, to try and understand what the hell is happening at our club. I never really worried about the results last year as it was obvious PC was playing with different things and players to see their capabilities, but like everyone I was a down hearted at the euro result. This being said I am still fully behind PC and what he is doing to our club at present and I commend the board for backing his vision. From all the players we have signed and been linked to I feel we have great strength in depth now (excluding the players we are trying to off load) .
The formations of our club looks like we can easily change between the 4-1-2-2-1 (otherwise know as 4-3-3 formation) or the 4-4-2 formation. And the two players that seem to fit the jigsaw of positions left is a ST who can pay as a RAM (Naismith) and a LAM (Walker) . I've wrote up how I think the team will be set up next year with 2 players in each position to make sense of things and elevate the fear of the naysayers. (youth players in brackets)

4-1-2-2-1 (4-3-3)
GK - FODERINGHAM, ALNWICK, KELLY, (MCCRORIE)
RB - TAVERNIER, BEERMAN, (HOUSTON)
LB - WALLACE, J. THOMPSON, (GRAY)
CB - ALVES, BATES, (McCRORIE)
CB - CARDOSO, D. WILSON (A. WILSON)
DCM - JACK, ROSSITER, (BARJONAS)
CM - DORRANS, DALCIO, (BURT)
CM - KRANJCAR, PENA, (? )
RAM - CANDEIAS, NAISMITH, (ATAKAYI)
LAM - WALKER, MILLER (? )
ST - HERRERA, MORELOS, (HARDIE, RUDDEN)

4-4-2
GK - FODERINGHAM, ALNWICK, KELLY, (MCCRORIE)
RB - TAVERNIER, BEERMAN, (HOUSTON)
LB - WALLACE, J. THOMPSON, (GRAY)
CB - ALVES, BATES, (McCRORIE)
CB - CARDOSO, D. WILSON (A. WILSON)
RM - CANDEIAS, DORRANS, (ATAKAYI)
LM - WALKER, DALCIO (? )
CM - JACK, ROSSITER, (BARJONAS)
CM - KRANJCAR, PENA, (BURT)
ST - HERRERA, NAISMITH, (RUDDEN)
ST - MORELOS, MILLER, (HARDIE)

Looking at the team flexible and set up I honestly think this season will be an exciting one and even if it takes a bit of time to gel we have to support the team, manager and board. The above line-up looks very strong and a vast improvement on last year.

We still need to offload quite a few players.
Dodoo, Keirnan, Hodson, Forrester and O'Halleron.
I don't think Waghorn will be sold until Naismith or similar is secured and I don't think Windass will be sold either until Walker is confirmed. The only player I am unsure on is Holt. I personally would keep him as rotation cover for any of the central mid positions.
Anyway sorry for rambling on but just wanted to paint the picture of how I see our club setting up and show the naysayers that the team does look very promising and that we will have a plan B in formations (at long last)

Well said sir. I agree. We will not get walker for a miserable. £600000

Agree1 Disagree4

We just sold a Scottish international winger to the money rich English leagues for less.
What price do you suggest? Or is it just the same old story, it's rangers, we keep saying their skint but add a couple of hundred K on anyway

22 Jul 2017 16:02:02
Well, that was pretty good!

Good movement with strong running and attack minded.

Need some sharpness in front of goal but the signs are there

2nd half awaits.

Agree21 Disagree1

Right folks, match day. Let's ditch the negativity (only 90 minutes of your life) and get behind Pedro and the team.

Excited to see how Alves being in the team, some more training and integration benefits the others, how will Cardoso perform with Alves beside him, also the fullbacks. Will Dorrans and Jack have developed an understanding of each other and will the old guard (those who're up for it) now be adapting to a new formation/ tactical approach and will this result in good service for the likes Morelos, Herrara to get a goal under their belt. Hoping there's a good performance and a result.

2-0 for me, good feeling for today, maybe hopeful, maybe delusional but I'd half expect some form of improvement in the aforementioned additions and practice time, plus the expensive Pena has a chance to prove his worth.

Agree5 Disagree1

So heres a scenario. Come Jan we're say between 10-15pts behind the tic and 3-5pts behind the sheep? Would that be grounds for the sack?
For me I think that as we play more the better we will get but this means that we cannot freak out at the opening results!

We MUST show Pedro what kind of PEOPLE we are as I feel matter who got the job after Warbs was coming to a huge Club not only starved of success but treated in an disgusting manner which led to our demise. We got back up the lge's fairly quickly and now any domestic mess ups is met with this huge amount of anger which has built up over the years!

Anyways I truly hope we play as well as we think these guys can as its basically the Europa tie that has rocked us!
I hope that if (big if) we do beat Marsaille and Wednesday that Pedro will feel the backing of the Support.

Agree5 Disagree5

22 Jul 2017 15:31:36
That scenario would not be grounds for the sack for me.

By the end of the season we should be no more than 12 points behind Celtic in 2nd place.

Anything better would be magic but need to be realistic - next season will be our year

22 Jul 2017 17:54:32
Starved of success? Did we not win a league and cup double the season before he got sacked, and we were still in a cup when he left too

22 Jul 2017 18:45:03
Can't believe some fans are actually sitting thinking about this stuff lol I hope Pedro gets it right up yees. Get behind them!

22 jul 2017 14:37:46
anyone else know about clubs earning their own co-efficient? first i've heard about it but if true its prob a good thing for us long term!
so if this is going to happen please inform when and also where was this announced?

Agree3 Disagree5

21 Jul 2017 14:49:34
This is for all the clowns who want pedro sacked, use don't have a clue about football, we have just signed nearly a full new team, guess what it takes time for them to gel and get settled into a new club and a new country, honestly give them a couple of months of regular games before judging them, as for pedro, I don't know if he will bring trophies back to ibrox but he must get at least to Christmas before calling for his head, I have a sneaky feeling warburtons players are hoping he gets sacked, we must back the gaffer, because the board backed him, now it's our turn.

Agree12 Disagree5

21 Jul 2017 16:11:01
I don't want to se him sacked. I hope he succeeds. However, I have Seen nothing to suggest he has any idea what he is doing. Lost home record against Aberdeen. Biggest defeat at ibrox in a century and the worst result in Europe ever. Couldn't tell you what his master plan is and I doubt he has one. If you can see it, then please enlighten. He has a mediocre record as a manager. Stand by my post earlier. If he gets off to a bad start and a humiliation against Celtic, then we should cut our losses ASAP

22 Jul 2017 11:38:57
How dare you call the fans who question this man's ability clowns. Everybody is entitled to their opinion. I have been following my team since the early 60's and have spent a small fortune doing so. Does this not entitle me to air my views on a fans forum? How much have you spent?

22 Jul 2017 13:04:27
Sorry Seeker, I disagree with you.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion but if it is a stupid opinion with no justification or base in reality, then a clown could share it.

Snap judgments based on the past few months are just plain stupid. He inherited a crap squad (most people on here agree) and went about improving it by bringing in almost a whole new team (in drips) .

The team will need 6 competitive games to even start to gel so expectations must be realistic.

If by Christmas we are not withing 6 points of 2nd, that would justify question marks

22 Jul 2017 13:57:35
Would you guys re-read your posts please!
Firstly, to advise where my opinion lies, I don't want Pedro sacked.

However one lot telling the other they have no clue and the people biting back calling others clowns?

Both sets feel passionately about this club, a good thing! You don't agree. That's it!

We have enough enemies on the outside. By all means disagree that is one of the elements that make this game great, but we are on the same side! We all want success, we just disagree how to get there!

22 Jul 2017 14:27:09
Well said Bluegenius.

22 Jul 2017 14:59:36
I've heard it all now. You are more or less saying people are entitled to their opinion but not if it is a stupid one! And who is the wise old sage who will decide this? The manager has made plenty of mistakes, uttered dozens of nonsensical statements and looked completely out of his depth during his short tenure so far.

He has been in charge during our biggest home humping to them, gone out of the cup with barely a whimper, lost a long held unbeaten record to the sheep and guided us to our worst ever European result. Added to that he has let our best player leave for peanuts and brought in a replacement who looks as if he has never seen a football.

I'd say that the above gives supporters the right to question the sanity of this appointment. So really, who is the clown here?

22 Jul 2017 15:36:49
Seeker, I am judging your opinion in the same way that you and some others are judging Pedro.

You may or may not have written some good posts in the past but I'm only interested in the here and now! Is not really sensible is it?

BTW, are you suggesting that because you have spent a lot of money on the club that you have more right to an opinion that anyone else?

If everyone is questioning the sanity of his appointment based on a few poor results (given where we have been in the last few years) then the clowns are all on that side

21 Jul 2017 14:29:54
Something seriously wrong at Ibrox. I don't know if its the management team, the training set up, morale, or just not happy in general. But in the last 3 weeks I've heard ( all facts ) Barrie Mckay going on record and speaking about his mistreatment under Caixinha, Andy Halliday getting a man of the match and guiding his team through to the 3rd round of europa league, and Joe Garner scoring 5 in 3 games. Now i'm not a betting man but i'd bet you that's no coincidence.

Agree7 Disagree0

21 Jul 2017 17:01:15
Pity they couldn't do it for Warburton either?

21 Jul 2017 18:08:39
i agree Brian. Halliday was already colin nish for us long before Pedro. McKay talking mince as well, ten times the player in his own mind that he actually is

22 Jul 2017 14:24:10
You are missing the point here troops. My point is how can these guys flourish in other teams but not ours. Garner will be a 30 goals a season player in the championship. You trying to tell me we don't need that. 2 goals in 4 friendlies and europe.

22 Jul 2017 14:27:19
halliday obviously isn't pish is he because he just took his team through into 3rd round of europe. Many of our boys done that? And as for mckay. You watch back the games he played last season with warburton and come back to me. His stats were unreal. Nearly 70% assists. The problem with him was that he was the only option we had to create a chance. Played out of position on the left always said he would make a superb number 10. Mind that old firm game?

21 Jul 2017 14:22:49
Bit of a change of subject but do u think that we will ever try and incorporate the Blue Star that we had on our very early strips. There's a black and white picture of the Squad (Founders) and its on a white top with white shorts. Anyways would love to see us bring something like that out. a

Agree3 Disagree1

21 Jul 2017 14:19:19
Would like to see Mcgregor back BUT does anyone know his Contract situation and how much he would cost us as I think he would accept the kind of wages we could offer. But again how much would he cost?

Agree2 Disagree4

21 Jul 2017 22:36:50
why do so many want McGregor back? probably none of you have seen him play in years so you are going on reputation alone. Its time to give Alnwick a chance, Kelly a substitute seat on the bench, and let Foderingham fight for his place or just let him go, we also have McCrorie and the young keeper we signed from Celtic, so tell me now why have we done nothing about Tavernier?

22 Jul 2017 01:56:20
We should buy Zander Clark. He's got the SPFL experience and had some outstanding performances last season.

Not sure about Alnwick. looked ropey v St Johnstone last game of the 2016/ 17 season

Clark #1, with Kelly on bench

22 Jul 2017 12:38:52
greyfriar - might be worth trying for some kind of deal to trade Clark for O'Halloran? just a thought

22 Jul 2017 15:01:10
Don't need any of the rats back at the club.
