Mohamed Bayo supposedly at Ibrox? Loan move with an option to buy.

As1974

1.) 31 Aug 2021 16:48:51
Not a chance.


2.) 31 Aug 2021 17:06:34
Twacoos how has it no chance?


3.) 31 Aug 2021 17:19:50
ST Twacoos knows.


4.) 31 Aug 2021 17:30:53
I just can’t see it he’s out of our price range but if he does come in I’ll be pleasantly surprised and will stand corrected I do think we are now but short up top especially if Defoe retires I’ll sit with baited breath.


5.) 31 Aug 2021 17:47:06
I wouldn't say he's oit of our price range, he was playing in Ligue 2 last season, although he's scored 3 in 3 games since being promoted, he's still relatively untested at a high level. I think we need someone in to fill in for It ten, Defoe won't play this year.


6.) 31 Aug 2021 17:51:49
How do we have No chance, Celtic are also looking at him to replace Odesen so if they can afford him then we definitely can as they are cheap scapes and only buy cheap players lol.


7.) 31 Aug 2021 17:57:01
Twacoos valued at 3 million so not out of our range.


8.) 31 Aug 2021 18:11:57
I think if we sold someone we would have bought but I’d think if we do bring in it will be a loan as we’ve freed up some wages with loans John but as I said I’ll be pleasantly surprised if he comes and will stand corrected do you think there is any truth in this.


9.) 31 Aug 2021 19:09:18
As1974, I can assure you that Mohamed Bayo is not in Glasgow or anywhere near Ibrox, he is not for sale, West Ham have been trying for weeks but we're told no chance, his value is around 5.5 million and his stats are brilliant. But to Rangers. not a chance.


10.) 31 Aug 2021 19:44:36
My post has a question mark so I wasn't making a statement merely asking the question.


11.) 31 Aug 2021 19:48:29
That is why I thought the same I saw West Ham had a bid turned down just over three hours to go.


12.) 31 Aug 2021 19:54:56
Twacoos I really don’t know, I do see a loan late on.


13.) 31 Aug 2021 20:06:08
Thanks John.


14.) 31 Aug 2021 20:40:33
Massively disappointed if we don’t bring anyone in…I understand the money situation but it’s a risk while your main competitor is strengthening to stand still.

Now I understand, we best then while not being at our best, but the boys gave 100% and that’s why we won, but it’s a massive risk and not one I’m comfortable with going for 56…get this and we could go on a run, otherwise it might be 1 and done…and I can feel a run coming here if we took advantage of our position.


 

 

14 Aug 2021 22:56:34
Papers are saying that Katic doesn't have a future at Rangers? Surely not! He's better than Simpson for sure.

As1974

1.) 15 Aug 2021 00:54:43
I'm sure the boss knows what he is doing, and is in a better position to judge than us. However I feel katic is much better than Simpson. Impressed with how he has bulked etc during injury. Think this will be one we come to regret.


2.) 15 Aug 2021 05:34:07
Gutted for the big man
Spend more than a year out recovering, only to be told your being sold : (.


3.) 15 Aug 2021 07:27:31
Quite simple guys, gerrard rates simpson a better centre half than katic 🤔.


4.) 15 Aug 2021 07:33:58
Unfortunately for katic he is not the best passer off the ball, our style of play is about short by kicks and passing ball out.
I did write in June he was going to Spezia, wherever he goes I wish him the very best.


5.) 15 Aug 2021 07:53:45
John25 playing out from the back is ultimately why we can’t keep clean sheets in Europe IMO it’s nice and easy in the league but in European games, teams don’t stand off, close the ball down quickly and then we get caught out. But back to the original point I think we’ll regret selling katic if these rumours are true, On his form 2 seasons ago I’d even have him ahead of balagun as 3rd choice. But the club know a lot more about the situation than us we’ll just have to get on with it, I will say though Simpson doesn’t look like a player to me at all even against Dunfermline witch we won easily he looked like an amateur footballer.


6.) 15 Aug 2021 09:07:05
Another player tipped by SG as a future leader of our club to then be moved on. Seems like that comment is as much a kiss of death as a board publicly backing an underfire manager. Shame really I like Katic and certainly felt better with him next to godson than I did anybody else until his injury. Hope it's just a loan for game time.


7.) 15 Aug 2021 09:22:08
Very true Stirling! Big Ross McCrorie and Katic were told they had massive future at the club! Ok maybe they didn’t kick on, but it feels like the kiss of death! He’s not a bad player big Katic.


8.) 15 Aug 2021 10:01:36
Dunfermline we have hardly evever lost a goal by passing out from back, Moncton goals lost r due to counter attack.


9.) 15 Aug 2021 10:12:19
That reply was for highland.


10.) 15 Aug 2021 12:12:05
Idiots if sell katic. at least out him on loan to give or Aberdeen so he can prove his worth against Celtic and maybe help our title hopes in process. Can't believe people don't rate him this is nothing to do with football and everything to do with him and Goodwin falling out and of course Gerrard took English guys side.


11.) 15 Aug 2021 13:00:48
Blue who is Goodwin.


12.) 15 Aug 2021 13:18:59
Blueinmyblood are you saying it was a racist decision by the manager? Wow!


13.) 15 Aug 2021 13:38:34
Blueinmyblood, explain why we're idiots if we sell katic mate 🤔 We can't accommodate 5 centre halfs pal and unfortunately katic is 5th choice! We need to trim our squad as it is a bit top heavy! If we can, it would then maybe allow gerrard to sign the likes of joey veerman etc,
who will contribute to us being better! Is that not what we should be doing mate 🤔.


14.) 15 Aug 2021 13:57:50
Personally, with the exception of Helander, I don't believe that any of our Centre backs are that great. Simpson is a bomb scare, Balogun is just ok and Goldson will be out of contract next summer and still hasn't signed a new contract. Surely we are not going to let him run his contract down and then walk for nothing. Bad business, very bad business!


15.) 15 Aug 2021 18:06:57
Damn predictive text. 😂. put katic out on loan to hibs or Aberdeen to prove himself and maybe help beat smelltic in the process.


16.) 15 Aug 2021 18:50:11
I beg to differ john25 it’s definitely cost us goals in Europe.


17.) 15 Aug 2021 19:49:36
Cool highland.


18.) 15 Aug 2021 19:50:54
Blue in my blood we can’t just put someone on loan to Aberdeen or hibs they need to want him and be able to afford some of his wages.


19.) 15 Aug 2021 20:49:47
Goldson and Helander are in my opinion the first choice CB pairing.
Better to keep Katic at Ibrox as Simpson has had very little game time and Balogun recent performances have been questionable.


 

 

24 Jul 2020 12:47:29
EXCLUSIVE: Rangers agree deal to sign Brighton defender Leo Balogun

Imo another poor signing.

As1974

1.) 24 Jul 2020 13:36:51
What are you basing that opinion on AS1974?


2.) 24 Jul 2020 13:37:22
Yes because signing another international player to be 4th choice when katic is back is poor eh? i'm willing to bet you've never even seen the lad play. Nice an optimistic. Ridiculous comment.


3.) 24 Jul 2020 13:38:12
Disagree, has played most of his career in the bundesliga
Also been capped 32 times for Nigeria give the man a chance.


4.) 24 Jul 2020 13:44:51
Hes 32 . What chance has some our young lads got eh?


5.) 24 Jul 2020 13:53:21
As what young lads are you referring to. Potentially fourth choice.
Talk Katic could be back January, sensible cover.


6.) 24 Jul 2020 13:56:41
AS1974 obviously SG doesn’t think the young guys are ready right now.


7.) 24 Jul 2020 13:56:57
Ok As1974, let’s have a think about the silly things you are saying. You ask what chance have our young lads got? Well I’m guessing you mean Mayo and McCrorie? Gerrard has already clearly stated that he could of kept Mayo this season as 4th/ 5th choice CB, maybe playing a couple of games. But would much rather be able to send him on loan and get him 30 or so games elsewhere to improve his development. And McCrorie ain’t a CB. So that puts that to rest.
And as for Balogun being a poor signing? Instead of reading the newspapers headlines ie ‘Rangers sign Wigan defender on a free’. How about this? ‘Rangers sign current Nigerian international defender with experience of playing in German Bundesliga and English premiership on free to be 4th choice back up CB’ Does that sound better?


8.) 24 Jul 2020 14:02:01
As1974, 32 is no age for a central defender. What have our youngsters got to do with your original post which says he is a poor signing? Isn't Edmundson young? Or Mayo? Or Katic? If they are good enough (Paterson, Maxwell etc) they will be given the chance to break through. They've only had two years of proper coaching with the current regime, for crying out loud, and most of them are still in the 16-18 bracket. Other, older players just weren't good enough so we had to start again at youth level. Now put your dummy back in.


9.) 24 Jul 2020 14:03:36
So you would bank on an 18 year old centre back and a defensive midfielder to cover centre half in the season they could win 10? Behave lad.


10.) 24 Jul 2020 14:09:30
I’m guessing 74 that when the opportunity comes along Gerard will choose the player who he thinks is most capable at the time - Bologun, Mayo or any other player.


11.) 24 Jul 2020 14:12:37
As1974 what's with the complaints of signing someone at 32? He’s free! Has clearly been signed due to Katic’s injury and will no doubt do us a big turn during that time with his experience. Heard enough about “give young lads a chance” - we are trying to win trophies, not create a team of 18 year olds with zero experience. If they’re good enough, they’ll get their chance when SG says it’s time.


12.) 24 Jul 2020 14:29:04
OK we sign a 32 year old.

Whats his sell on fee? When was the last time he played a competitive game? . We buy him just to warm the bench?
We have Mayo and Bassey who can fit in.
I'm a right in saying we have one, yes one fit striker, who befure lock down was rank rotten. Alarm bells no?


13.) 24 Jul 2020 14:30:49
So ScottyGer we've went with these "experienced" guys as you call it for the last 2 season. What did we win? There's my point.


14.) 24 Jul 2020 14:45:50
Guys, we needed cover and on paper the lad looks to tick some boxes. Whilst he might be a Nigerian international so was Efe Ambrose 😆😆. Let’s give him and our man agent team the benefit of the doubt though. I’m sure the lad wasn’t the only option they considered.


15.) 24 Jul 2020 14:57:21
I get you would prefer someone younger but as cover I'd rather have experience. Edmundson looks promising but open to mistakes. Helander has been 'nearly fit' for months so I won't rely on him playing so someone proven at a good level is the right call for now. Save our money for st and mid.


16.) 24 Jul 2020 14:57:24
Oh dear oh dear AS1974, you really are making yourself look very silly now. Again if you’d been paying attention Gerrard clearly stated just a few days ago that he was looking to bring in BOTH a CB as cover (due to Katics injury) AND. wait for it. another striker. It just so happens we’ve managed to secure the CB first.
As for talk of sell on values? That wasn’t the point of bringing in Balugon. We needed someone who was available immediately, had experience at a decent level, wasn’t going to cost much/ anything (just in case you haven’t noticed, there’s a C.V. going on that’s hampering all clubs finances) and probably understands that he may not be first choice. I think we’ve done ok in getting in an international player that meets those criteria.
And I’ve already covered the point about our younger players.


17.) 24 Jul 2020 14:59:20
As1974 his last competitive game was yesterday mate so educate yourself otherwise you just embarrass yourself.


18.) 24 Jul 2020 15:06:33
Well there you go as74, when was last time he played a competitive game.
How about Wednesday night. Wigan v Fulham.
Before that Saturday, before that the previous Wednesday
It appears that Klopp knows the lad very well from Germany, and talks him up very well.
Only a guess but mb gerrard and Klopp have chatted about him.
Good thing for me it should not take him long to get up to speed.


19.) 24 Jul 2020 15:11:39
As1974 so because he has no sell on value we shouldn't sign him? May aswell just get rid of every player before they hit the age of 30 then, if that's your logic. We can get rid of McLaughlin and Greegsy and play with Firth in goals if you want?

His last competitive game was 2 days ago. If that's not good enough then his last competitive game before that was 4 days earlier. Is that enough or do you want me to keep going?


20.) 24 Jul 2020 15:22:05
I wouldn’t be surprised if the lad walked straight into our back fore he will be the most experienced CB at the club!


21.) 24 Jul 2020 15:29:32
OK fair enough he played against Fulham. He's not even first choice for a struggling Brighton team.

I'm not making myself look silly at all.

If i or some of the guys commenting on here were a young Def In the Rangers squad how would you feel?

Season after season we are buying so called experienced players but if that's to be the case bring some more young in man. Mix it up.


22.) 24 Jul 2020 15:31:53
So back to my point. Why did we need this guy? We will continue to dismiss some young guys in our squad.
Striker should be number 1 priority.


23.) 24 Jul 2020 15:37:30
"We've went with these experienced guys for the last 2 seasons". Nobody in our defense the last 2 seasons has been over 28. Some as low as 17. "Whats his sell on fee". Why do we automatically have to sell him? Let him see his contract out then mayo and king will be ready. "When was his last game? " 2 days ago with Wigan.


24.) 24 Jul 2020 15:38:42
Hope he gets minutes against Coventry in the 2nd half to see how he pairs with Goldson.


25.) 24 Jul 2020 15:55:43
It's very unlikely we're going to sign a regular first team player from any team in the English premier League as1974.
If the boy improves our squad I don't see any problems.
Am sure we'll sign a forward player before next Saturday as well.


26.) 24 Jul 2020 16:41:17
I agree MrGrumpy that would be ambitious but I'd have been hapoy with a back up player like Bassey.

We, ll have to sign a striker by then and I hope its not Cosgrove or Dykes.


27.) 24 Jul 2020 16:52:03
1974, Mayo is not ready to be first team regular just yet. That's surely not up for debate?
Helander isn't fit and katic is out.
That leaves you 2 first team CB's only.
However you are right a striker is the priority. So surely having the opportunity to sign experienced international cover ON A FREE makes sense as you leave the rest of your budget for said striker?


28.) 24 Jul 2020 17:03:38
As u r looking silly.
Good to see another under the radar signing. Wilson said the deal was agreed and signed before we went to France.


29.) 24 Jul 2020 17:13:47
5 clean sheets with Wigan after they brought him in to shore up the defence. A good solid back up with plenty of experience. I think we've been smart with this signing.


30.) 24 Jul 2020 17:33:28
According to Wigan fans he came in January for them and was really good for them. Good signing for free with plenty of experience. Don’t see the problem in signing him tbh he will cover for Katic but he will also provide competition to the other centre backs.


31.) 24 Jul 2020 17:43:35
plenty of experience and ltd training required. can fit in euro ties as well without much coaching. smart signing really.


32.) 24 Jul 2020 18:17:57
Time will tell. I know he's free and I wish people would shut up and stop saying "you look silly" and "Put your dummy back in the pram" BS. The boy he will be on a hefty wage and with C.V. times are hard at present.

My point initially was get a striker in and stop mucking about.

Yes the dfence needs shored up but a striker is Number 1 priority.


33.) 24 Jul 2020 18:30:53
AS1974, if I was a young defender in the squad I'd think that I need to train much harder and learn more about how to be a better defender that can be trusted to play for Rangers.

Players need to earn the right to play for Rangers not just be handed it. We can't afford to see if a young defender is capable of playing. Every player needs to be ready this year.


34.) 24 Jul 2020 18:42:39
Yes I kind of agree but you need to give players a chance Blue. You can't keep buying all the time. We need to be a selling club also.


35.) 24 Jul 2020 19:19:48
Could be a clever move. The guy has a decent CV and he didn't cost us a transfer fee. We might just have landed ourself a good deal. Assuming we have the funds, (and I believe that we have), the bringing in a quality striker and ideally a second striker would be my priority, and possibly a holding midfield player although I am hoping that Barker and Aribo might just be the answer to our midfield needs.


36.) 24 Jul 2020 19:44:11
It's a signing that 100% makes sense for us. An experienced international on a free is a no brainer. And we will sign a striker, but this was set up before France, did before defoe got injured. So at the time the deal was done cb was the priority as we had 2 fit cbs. Not hard to understand.


37.) 24 Jul 2020 19:52:16
I love how people are saying he has come on free from brighton he moved away from brighton in Jan and was at wigan till his contract expired due to them being in admin, he is a solid defender who will fill a gap in the defence and also has experiance that the young players need.


38.) 24 Jul 2020 20:42:05
Not much point in trying to reason with as1974, is there? He says we can't keep buying all the time - about a free player. He's happy to go into a vital season with just 2 fit centre backs, both of limited experience (neither near international level and one just learning the game) . Goldson gets injured and he's content for us to go with Edmondson and Mayo against Aberdeen, the mhankies, European teams and all the rest. Aye right.


39.) 24 Jul 2020 23:46:53
@ The Covenanter. wind your neck on pal. So a 32 year old CB will bail us out aye? Brilliant. Who's to say he's even good? He's on a free so must be brill eh?
Is people not allowed to have an opinion no? The last 2 seasons we've bought more dross than good. Time for the youth to get run. If your saying thier isn't one young lad from your training camp and isn't ready to jump in to that team then your delusional.

Mayo, Patterson only to name a few.


40.) 25 Jul 2020 00:06:15
Your not allowed to have an opinion if you write "is people not allowed to have an opinion" ARE mate ARE.


41.) 25 Jul 2020 00:10:50
Talk sense muppet.


42.) 25 Jul 2020 07:45:03
An international CB who just turned 32 who has played in Bundesliga for a decade and a couple of years in Championship and BPL on a Bosman is great business.
Experienced CB is only on 1 year contract if he plays well we can extend it, but basically we have cover until Katic is recovered.
Not every signing has to be young with sell in value, the 3 older signings in Gerrard era Davis, Shagger and Defoe have all been great, new back up keeper has been impressive also.
Pointless paying £5m for a CB just so we can sell on in future 2 experienced in Goldson/ Helander and 2 with Katic/ Edmundson is perfect mix. Now we have added experience at minimal outlay freeing up funds for Striker, job done.


43.) 25 Jul 2020 10:27:52
I think he will be a good signing, hopefully he’s quite authoritative, help command from the back. Could help having a some strong leaders in the team. I hope we do sign a striker but who I don’t know. Personally would like to see us get some1 who is a big strong unit, like a giroud type player, that many of the teams we play against is backs to the wall so pace is a bit of a wasted attribute. Don’t get me wrong if they had pace as well that would be ideal.


 

 

13 Mar 2020 06:04:24
Just read that SG is now outing polster for not taking one for the team. Aye very good. have a look in the mirror.

As1974

1.) 13 Mar 2020 09:36:19
and why not he should have done, running around like a headless chicken, saying that there was a couple of abysmal performances out there last night, some drastic changes need addressing at the end of the season.


2.) 13 Mar 2020 10:15:14
Truebluesotrue the reason managers don't usualy do that is because it should be done behind closed doors instead of sg through them under the bus all the time, polsters confidence now probley low which is not needed when confidence is aready very low.


3.) 13 Mar 2020 11:06:22
100% agree with Gerrard, that last goal has changed our chances massively.


4.) 13 Mar 2020 11:24:21
Remember when he did the same thing about Tavernier v Young Boys?

Oh, wait a minute, he doesn't do that with his clique.


5.) 13 Mar 2020 11:25:41
No wonder this team doesn't play for Gerrard. He slates them all the time. He's not a good man manager or tactician.

If even 4lads are failing to back him you know the game is up.


6.) 13 Mar 2020 12:11:22
Have to agree that comments and the reprimanding of individual players should be behind closed doors. (unless it is to praise them of course) .

How would Stevie feel if D. King publicly announced that Stevie had his backing but up till now his recent performance has been absolutely abysmal and is now getting a bit sick o him.

I know if my gaffer told me I am the worse employee on his books then asked me to do him a favour and turn out an item for him personally, I know what I would reply.


7.) 13 Mar 2020 12:35:56
Let’s be honest. Gerrard is right!

He should have brought him down! Arfield and Kent both done it earlier on game, I don’t see anyone giving them a hard time for getting booked!


8.) 13 Mar 2020 13:56:45
Ok he should have took a booking but he isn't helped at back post when he has 2 players to choose from cause goldson has had to do midfields job closing down at the edge of the box. No top manager would do this to a player in polster position. And SG wouldn't through tav or goldson under the bus like that.


9.) 13 Mar 2020 14:43:39
Well out of order. Why does he back goldson week in week out. Look at his hamilton blunder. Worst yet. What gerrard say. he's strong character.


10.) 13 Mar 2020 16:12:49
dont think polster really could do much about it, guy was gone. and i'm not comfortable with our manager slagging the guy off for that in the press, or for that matter demanding in public that our players "take one for the team"

with that suit comes responsibilities. gerrard isn't living up to them at moment.


11.) 13 Mar 2020 16:17:45
slaughter players in dressing room yes but keep it in house don’t hang them out to dry for scumbag mhedia

also if you’re going to dig folk out, be consistent. he’s done it to niko polster and others but tav goldson cple others also at fault for loosing big goals but they are bulletproof

call it what you want - it’s double standards.


12.) 13 Mar 2020 19:08:50
Get a grip of yourselves. Absolute sweetie wives. Yous all wanted poulster in instead of Tav. He was poor at the weekend and had a massive part to play in their 3rd. The difference between him and Tav is night and day. Saying gerrard never criticises his favourites is a bit hypocritical as you lot constantly blame the players you don’t like for every single mistake or poor performance.


13.) 13 Mar 2020 20:02:51
eezyeez, catch yourself on we were never in that game it was boys against men 😡😡😡😡😡😡.


14.) 13 Mar 2020 22:34:54
@EverySaturday It's not about us, it's about Gerrard. He's the manager, not us. What he says about his players matters a damn more than what we do.


15.) 14 Mar 2020 10:22:04
I'm not a fan of the chucking players under the bus. I watched sven Goran eriksen on monday in the sky studio before the leicester game talking about the same subject. Saying he would never.


16.) 14 Mar 2020 10:25:42
Sorry hit button early. Basically said stuff like that he would bring player into his office or have s eord in dressing room sfter gsme. He would never do it to media as it has s detrimental effect on players confidence and performsnce.


17.) 14 Mar 2020 16:37:45
Well for someone who thinks it matters not a jot what they have to say, you always have a lot to say for yourself. More often than not moaning and complaining or is you’re posts all James Tavernier’s fault?

Anyone hear anything?

Well he is a free agent in the summer so can sign on a bosman i have heard that both us and celtic have offered the player a deal.

appears to be a decent prospect, and maybe more than decent. hopefully he will sign up, seeing how well joe aribo has done.


3.) 14 Jan 2020 16:17:47
Struth have heard he has bags of potential but extremely lazy. This from Stoke ST holder.

Yep Balogun especially.

Two off them stood up today, thought Goldston excellent second half.


3.) 24 Oct 2021 15:00:34
Didn’t think they played that well to be fair.


4.) 24 Oct 2021 15:23:59
Storm all about opinions, it shows we do need one or two in.


5.) 24 Oct 2021 18:45:53
We certainly do John.

Rangers are turning in to Scotland! Total roller coaster ride! We started terrible. I don't want to be over critical of McLaughlin but he took an age to dive for thier goal. Was a great strike but.

Great pen from Roofe. Great poachers goal from Alfie. You can see what it meant to him. Hopefully that's the 100 goals curse off his back and now time to kick on.

I think big Goldson had looked very good. What's happened to Borna? Fell away big time. Great comeback but this game ain't done.

Can't blame the goalie for that imo.


2.) 24 Oct 2021 13:05:08
Not the Keepers fault any of ours would have saved it bad pass from Tav and then strike.


3.) 24 Oct 2021 13:35:23
No chance for keeper, moving away from him all the time, loads of cut onnthe ball.


4.) 24 Oct 2021 14:35:28
Barasic is terrible right now. Goldson distribution is poor. Davis slows it down too much and gave away possession. Tav had a great game so did the strikers taking off Alfie for Sakala was a mistake. Don’t see anything special from Sakala except pace. Lundstram steady as well.


5.) 24 Oct 2021 14:39:28
ST you omitted Lundstrums part in the goal. The assertion from your post is that it went straight from Tavernier to the opposition.


6.) 24 Oct 2021 14:49:31
Barisic terrible but tav had a great game 😂😂.


7.) 24 Oct 2021 16:25:40
Bluetooth lundstram off balance as moving forward, tav fluffed the pass. Goal 100% tav.


8.) 24 Oct 2021 17:01:53
Here we go manager says same. A slack square pass.


9.) 24 Oct 2021 17:17:32
⁸agree 100% mate. By time lundstram changes his forward momentum the player is past him and he can't get his balance back.


 

 

24 Oct 2021 11:14:50
Just seen the team. I hope to god Balageon doesn't aggravate his groin as we need him for Europe. Morelos starts. Got to step up big time. No excuses.

As1974

1.) 24 Oct 2021 11:20:01
Alfredo was always going to start.


2.) 24 Oct 2021 11:34:46
I'm surprised Davis and Lundstram both start anytime iv seen both together we look one paced also no real pace I'd have started Wrighr or Sakala leaving Buff on the bench.


3.) 24 Oct 2021 11:34:56
It's time to step up ST.


 

 

23 Oct 2021 12:51:13
Like to see people's startung line up tomorrow.

Hers mine

Greegs

Tav Goldson Simpson Bassey

Aribo Lundstrum Arfield

Hagi Roofe Sakala.

As1974

1.) 23 Oct 2021 13:07:42
McLaughlin will start imo as will Morelos.


2.) 23 Oct 2021 13:26:48
Hopefully Simpson can play with a bit of confidence and grab his chance as he always looks nervous and tentitive and a mistake is never far away. He's been up here long enough now to be settled and know the score but he gives me the fear so it would be good if he can put in a decent performance.


3.) 23 Oct 2021 13:42:17
Yes three cheers we do real need Simpson to deliver, there is a player there, good with ball at feet.


4.) 23 Oct 2021 13:59:00
Put fredo in and arfield won’t start either and I would start Patterson.


5.) 23 Oct 2021 14:39:40
Agree re Paterson, storm.


6.) 23 Oct 2021 14:40:20
ST why do you want Fredo in? He's doing nothing mate. He needs a spell on the bench.


7.) 23 Oct 2021 14:48:12
I would rather we played Bassey at centre back than relied on Simpson. Every game he has played so far he has been a liability.


8.) 23 Oct 2021 14:51:00
As I’d also play Alf, our best goal threat.


9.) 23 Oct 2021 15:00:46
Berkshire he showed what he was capable off against Celtic.


10.) 23 Oct 2021 15:11:29
Bassey can't play CB imo.


11.) 23 Oct 2021 15:33:33
McLaughlin
Tav Goldson Simpson Borna
Lundstrum
Aribo Kamara
Hagi Roofe Fashion.


12.) 23 Oct 2021 15:58:29
Bassey like a fish out if water at CH. simpson far better choice.


13.) 23 Oct 2021 16:11:23
McGregor
Patterson
Goldson
Simpson
Barasic
Kamara
Aribo
Lundstram
Sakala
Roof
Hagi.


14.) 23 Oct 2021 16:14:18
John25, he may ge good with ball at his feet (debatable), but for a CH, first things first, strong in challenge, dominate cf, quick. not seeing those often enough.


15.) 23 Oct 2021 17:06:45
As … don’t agree with you at all. Fred is hold up play and distribution is excellent. He hit the post with a wonderful effort on thurs too . Rather than using him as a whipping boy it might be better to look at the bigger picture .


16.) 23 Oct 2021 17:40:15
Mols I don’t think he’s being used as the whipping boy, if Tav or Borna or Kent weren’t doing there job we would be asking for another first team squad player to be given a start, it’s why we have a squad, esp when form dips. He’s not getting blamed for anything .


17.) 23 Oct 2021 18:10:57
Ar he is exactly the type of player gerrard wants, don’t remember any complaints after Celtic game, better than Bassey at CH.


18.) 23 Oct 2021 19:06:50
@John25 who is better than Bassey at CH?

@Molsgoals. I'm sick of reading is hold up play etc etc. He's supposed to be our main striker is he not? When was the last game Morelos put in a MOM performance? Do you actually watch him closely? Look how deep he comes in a game and al the work he does is pointless and we are aren't scoring enough goals and he's a huge contributing factor. I'm sorry I totally disagree with you. He's not the Morelos of old. He's so slow it's unreal.


19.) 23 Oct 2021 19:17:04
As because he may not be getting the goals 5 in 15 but his link up play is great and he gets us up the pitch that’s why I want him to start.

It’s funny how all the rangers fans that want him dropped but SG keeps starting him strange one that eh 😬

He never scored loads last season but not many were calling for him to be drop why was that 🤔.


20.) 23 Oct 2021 19:19:48
Correct mols I would be more worried about fredo if he wasn’t getting in the right positions.


He is the whipping boy because he didn’t score against hearts but that wasn’t the reason we dropped points it’s because we ain’t keeping as many clean sheets as last year.

Maybe MPH a will be able to tell me the stats how many games last season did we win 1-0?


21.) 23 Oct 2021 20:01:11
It's nothing to do with being a whopping boy. He's not and hasn't been performing for months. Pure and simple.


22.) 23 Oct 2021 20:25:05
As in my opinion Simpson is better than Bassey at CH.


23.) 23 Oct 2021 20:28:09
As re Morelos the manager says Morelos plays and links the game the way he wants him to, however he wants more goals.
Do u honestly believe he would be playing if he was running about doing what he wants, not what the manager says.


24.) 23 Oct 2021 20:35:15
Sorry as ., . Pure and simple he has … he’s not scored as many goals …and Stevie agrees but what he brings to team … the strength and power in the hold up positions? Someone on here posted that no one else in the side can do what he does.
Pure and simple my friend.


25.) 23 Oct 2021 21:29:49
Gregg
Tav golddon bassey BB
Aribo lundstram kamara
Wright Roofe hagi
No messing a win a must.


26.) 23 Oct 2021 22:12:08
His whole game improved last year, esp his link up play and overall game and space awareness. This year he hasn’t progressed everything is laboured. He is off form and it happens to every player. Utilise the squad.


27.) 24 Oct 2021 01:58:07
Don't understand all this negativity surrounding Morelos if he is that bad do you think Gerrard would be playing him. obviously playing role asked by manager getting into position to score so goals will come. tell me who else is scoring freely in team at moment. let's all get behind Morelos and team upwards and onwards towards 56.


28.) 24 Oct 2021 08:10:29
@John25 I agree with you that Bassey can't play at CB. 100% on that.

If that's the way that SG wants el Buff to play then it's changing the payer he is.

Do you want a player that links the play or do you want a player that scores goals? Look at what he was doing prior to SG changing his role in the team. Scoring for fun he was. Backheels, chips, headers, flicks the lot. (scoring them that is) . We haven't seen any of that in months. Not one person has agreed he comes to deep and is far to heavy and slow. Guys I'm sorry to harp on about it but his performances are going to cost us. God I hope I'm wrong!
