John, last day. What’s the scoop?

AlloaGer

1.) 31 Aug 2021 08:27:43
Nothing yet Alloa. Gerrard apparently wants to keep squad top heavy. Ie Kelly Arfield mb itten.


2.) 31 Aug 2021 09:25:47
We're going to need them but I'd have tried a couple of loans out with options to recall if that's do able keeps them fresh with other teams picking up some wages.


3.) 31 Aug 2021 09:48:40
I would prefer if we moved Itten and Barker out since I don't see either of them being a game changer for us. Would like to see us bring in one quality player, possibly on a loan to buy basis, either a striker or a winger.


4.) 31 Aug 2021 10:24:33
Agree with Berkshire should move Itten and Barker on and replace with one quality player but i guess if nobody wants them we are stuck with it. i'm sure Gerrard would love to bring in a couple of quality additions and move one or two out but unless there is an offer coming in for one of our players we don't have the money to make changes. No idea why we bought Itten in the first place and that goes for Lundstum too.


5.) 31 Aug 2021 10:38:08
I think barker a certain to go.


6.) 31 Aug 2021 11:20:35
Yes we need rid of Barker, as its a rumours page anyone heard Troy Deeney being mentioned as i seen a couple of snippets recently and he left Watford yesterday?


7.) 31 Aug 2021 11:27:19
Berkshire i actually still fancy itten, he's never had a run and is a team player when on, granted he's not a prolific scorer, however I'm not gutted when i see his name, just my opinion, barker, he's had his chance and i'm sure we all wish him well in the rest if his career.


8.) 31 Aug 2021 11:29:03
Agree John, expect Barker to go on loan although think Itten will stay. Hearing mixed things about Kelly and Arfield.


9.) 31 Aug 2021 11:31:10
Well John the clock is ticking all will be revealed in a few hours time!


10.) 31 Aug 2021 11:53:11
Deemed signed for Birmingham Gregory.


11.) 31 Aug 2021 12:12:59
Deeney signed for Birmingham (Gregory )
Yesterday after some wild rumours lol.

John, as someone in the know. What’s the latest on outgoings/ incomings before the window closes?

AlloaGer

1.) 30 Aug 2021 11:29:05
I was just about to ask John if he had heard anything today 😂.


2.) 30 Aug 2021 12:07:11
Post down below your guys questions.


3.) 30 Aug 2021 12:33:44
Seen it after I commented John should have scrolled 1st.


4.) 30 Aug 2021 13:12:38
John25 is the Guru of all things transfer related on here.
Forget Rangersnewsniw, Glasgow Live etc.
I don't believe anything until he's giving us the heads up!


5.) 30 Aug 2021 13:35:52
Sorry John I hadn’t scrolled. Hopefully make some decent money on Borna. He’s been a great signing for us.


6.) 30 Aug 2021 13:52:46
Spot on MPH, if he ain't said it, it ain't happening.
Keep the news coming John, and thanks for taking the time to keep us reliably informed.

Champions league draw could have been worse.

AlloaGer

1.) 18 Jul 2022 21:33:18
you don't finish 2nd in Belgium less your good don't let the name full you.


2.) 18 Jul 2022 23:18:47
No big blue it’ll be a tough game and even more so having to play these games as this part of the campaign but if we play to our potential we should be ok.


3.) 19 Jul 2022 07:24:47
They will be more concerned about drawing Rangers than we should be about drawing them. Giving new players time to settle-in is a slight worry, but a much better worry than we would have if we had no new players or if the new players were hopeless.


 

 

15 Jul 2022 15:47:58
If we sell Bassey for £25m surely our finances will be massively better than what they were, even allowing for anCB and LB brought in. With the money for Patterson, Gerrard and his team, Aribo, bassey and Itten, adding to the European money last season, that’s got to put us in a good position.

AlloaGer

1.) 15 Jul 2022 16:21:22
It should alloa.


2.) 15 Jul 2022 22:01:34
We should be selling only if the offer is 20m at least I believe he'll go to the very top and if he's going think ajax would be a great club to take his career to the next stage.


3.) 15 Jul 2022 22:49:51
One Walter has to be Scottish record.


 

 

09 Jul 2022 17:15:38
I see Gary Rowett spouting bull about Lovelace taking a step backwards joining Rangers. I remember the charlton manager saying The same when we signed Aribo. Then he wins a league title, a Scottish cup, scores a goal in a European final, plays in front of 54000 fans every other weekend and get a move to a premiership team. How’s that taking a step backwards? Honestly some of these managers down south should hear the nonsense that comes out their mouths. For guys that are are supposed to be clever they don’t have come out with some stupid statements at times. I mean who are Millwall? Step backwards my back side.

AlloaGer

1.) 09 Jul 2022 17:31:11
Alloager I said something similar in an earlier post it goes both ways we have lost Wilson and Gilmor when we could have given them first team football.

What i'd love to know is who from our glut of youth signings is the one who will make the biggest impact in the next few years?

Pollard
Lovelace
Rice
Stevens
Bell

Who is the pick of the bunch, I’m excited to see if we can bring through 3-5 players playing in our first 11 in the next 3 years or so.


2.) 09 Jul 2022 18:27:15
BRW impossible to tell without seeing them play. Ask. Again at Xmas.


3.) 09 Jul 2022 19:25:16
Be interesting to see who starts to shine from youth as some very talented youth players.


4.) 09 Jul 2022 20:52:01
I've high hopes for Bailey rice and Zak lovelace. Don't make your pro debut at 15 if your not a huge talent.


5.) 09 Jul 2022 21:08:11
To be fair I don't think it was a criticism of Rangers in particular on this occasion if you read what was said. Most was frustration over cross border compensation after years of development to get practically nothing. Rangers really takinh advantage this year tho we lost out with wilson. Works both ways. And he is taking a step back because he was on fringes of 1st team to go to our academy team. A step back but onto bigger and better hopefully.


 

 

18 Jun 2022 18:19:24
I read a lot about young players leaving and we don’t give them a chance. Young players coming through are very very rarely better than the players in the first team but some have potential to be as good, if not better. Question is, would the fans be happy to go say two or three seasons of potentially winning nothing as long as we were playing say 3 youngsters? As an example, thread on the rumours page talks about mccrorie possibly going to Aberdeen and that he should be given a chance. Why should he get a run of games if we have 2 keepers in front of him that are better?

AlloaGer

1.) 18 Jun 2022 19:20:15
Point is Alloa we don’t have two keepers in front off him, one has left.


2.) 18 Jun 2022 19:29:48
I don’t think it’s one or the other, I believe we could introduce 3 youth players this season and still win the league. Cup games and home games against bottom 6 teams. I believe some young players (if good enough) can play 10/ 15 games this season and improve.


3.) 18 Jun 2022 19:44:21
It's rare to get 1st team players from academy good enough to start but for me the problem is bringing in squad players who aren't much better than the kids an stop them developing. Since Warburton I think we've averaged 12-15 players a season and the vast majority were bench warmers.


4.) 18 Jun 2022 20:08:00
Kaiser, king Lowry Devine mcann all good enough to start.


5.) 18 Jun 2022 21:28:21
Hi John, I meant last season with mccrorie as it was suggested he done well in old firm game and should have been given a run. John which five players would you drop to start them? And do you believe that team would be good enough to emulate and progress what we done last year? I’m not being smart I’m genuinely asking as I know you see these boys a lot.


6.) 18 Jun 2022 21:58:59
I definitely agree about Lowry and King

Haven’t seen enough of others to comment though.


7.) 18 Jun 2022 22:09:42
John, if the 5 you mention are all good enough to start why is it very unlikely that they will not start?

IMO experience is at least as good as raw talent in most cases.


8.) 18 Jun 2022 22:21:47
I agree John. Great seeing some at the moment who look like could break through. They probably won't be starters yet but My hope is that unlike before they are given the chance to be back ups. Any signings should be 1st choice players either upgrades or replacements for stars who leave.


9.) 19 Jun 2022 01:05:05
AlloaGer, do you really think John meant that we should start all five in every game? Talk about obtuse! I can see a situation where Lowry would start a decent number of games, King maybe a few less and the other two outfield players would benefit from being part of the squad and get maybe two or three games like Lowry and King did last season.


10.) 19 Jun 2022 02:00:44
Tavson I don’t know what John meant that’s why I asked him. He named 5 players that should start, not that should be in the squad. And I wasn’t being wide either I know he watches these guys a lo, whereas I don’t, t and I respect his views. Also, if I said for example sakala and sands should be starters, I’m guessing most on here would sssime I meant they should start every game, or at least most games. Unless they’re all obtuse as well.


11.) 19 Jun 2022 08:17:13
Alloa not about dropping five players it’s about adding academy players to squad and rotating them.
like last year u know we rotated Balogun helander Davis Jack kamara
Wright aribo hagi

11 plates cane play 60 games each.


12.) 19 Jun 2022 10:10:32
Thanks John, I hope you’re right but I can’t see Gio giving them much start time apart from Lowry. Based on current numbers and adding a couple as well.


13.) 19 Jun 2022 18:17:28
Alloa that was gios mistake last year. You are right about low.
I see king mcann zukowski being in at least 15 match day squads especially if 5 subs are allowed.


 

 

12 Jun 2022 10:34:38
Mph re the Kent posts previously, sorry I misread your point, and yes I’d like him to score more goals. Possibly getting close to double figures. For me he won’t score much more than that as he’s a wide player that doesn’t take penalties or free kicks but I’d like his shooting to be increased and accuracy better as well.

AlloaGer

1.) 12 Jun 2022 11:49:52
Wide players should be scoring 15 goals a season in our league look at other mob jota and Abada doing those kind a numbers.


2.) 12 Jun 2022 12:24:32
You are right alloa, he won't score much more as he is a winger.


3.) 12 Jun 2022 12:51:40
Jota and abadas numbers is realistic figures that he should be aiming for. they are also wingers. Not sure he's got that in him tho.


4.) 12 Jun 2022 13:23:49
I’d be happy with his 2020/ 2021 tally, AlloaGer.
13 goals
15 assists
That to me is a realistic target for someone of his ability.
But 3 goals last season is a pitiful amount.


5.) 12 Jun 2022 13:25:17
2 goals in a league of the spfl standard for a Rangers forward player is awful. I'd love to see the stats he has when he has a shot at goal because from what I can remember the goalkeeper doesn't even need to save a lot of his shots.


6.) 12 Jun 2022 13:44:58
Your wish is my command, Sweep.
Last season ( 2021/ 2022 ) in the SPFL:-
2.5 shots per game
0.7 shots on target
4 big chances missed ( which doesn’t include the sitter in the EL Final )
3% goal conversion from total shots
1 goal from 35 chances inside the box
1 goal from 30 chances outside the box
Very similar stats for the EL.
A player of his undoubted ability should be scoring more.


7.) 12 Jun 2022 14:19:53
Agree MPH I’d be delighted with those stats in 20/ 21 on top of everything else he brings.
MPH do you know the goals and assists from the combined guys that have played right wing last season or seasons before. Would be interesting to compare.


8.) 12 Jun 2022 14:38:19
Celtic 2 wingers don’t seem to have a problem coldo so that statement is utter Bs.


9.) 12 Jun 2022 14:47:47
Cheers MPH great stats.


10.) 12 Jun 2022 15:13:24
I’m confident he’ll get goals under Gio if he stays, just has to Gamble more! He’s should ALWAYS be in around the back post when our other wise player has the ball!


11.) 12 Jun 2022 15:15:02
I think we all realise RW has been a problem position, AlloaGer with not one person nailing it down.
Though Wright came on to a game near the end of the season.
Wright this season is 7 goals, 3 assists
Diallo was 3 goals, 0 assists
Aribo has played there but not sure of his breakdown for RW only? But he has 9 goals, 10 assists
Hagi has played there before his injury. Again don’t know the breakdown for that position but he’s 4 goals, 4 assists.


12.) 12 Jun 2022 16:08:18
Thanks MPH, backs up what you were saying about Kent needing more goals as he’s a regular on the left wing.


13.) 12 Jun 2022 17:23:01
It was never a dig about Kent’s overall ability.
I think most of our forward and technically gifted players should be scoring 10+ a season, AlloaGer.
Even Morelos ( who is 1 in 2 in his career ) should be getting 20+ a season in the league. But he does OK considering he doesn’t take our penalties.
And I’ll happily take his stats of 224 games, 113 goals, 51 assists. Not bad for a £1 million buy.

Supposed to be a more attacking style now DSG but would be interesting g to see if more goals scored now than back in the 442 days.

I’m no professional but surely there are better technical measurements of fitness levels rather than ‘he runs up and down the park all game’. Measurements such as speed, stamina, recovery rates etc. only the coaching staff will know who the fittest player is and it can’t just be judged on the position a player plays.
