Lucky enough to secure 2 tickets for the final today, anyone heard of or know of anyone that had booked flights that isn't going anymore and would be up for name changes? Cheers.


1.) 13 May 2022 07:43:34
Plenty offers on Rangers social media.
Also believe a few West Ham fans had booked in advance and were trying to sell their flights.

If you can't get a flight Jackboy55 then I would be more than happy to give you good money to buy your tickets mate.

Hate to say I told you so but the accident that was waiting to happen that is Calvin bassey at centre half has just happened, anyone who sees him as a decent centre half knows nothing about football.


1.) 29 Jan 2022 13:10:41
Exactly what iv been saying he ain't no cb, we need to sign a cb urgently.

2.) 29 Jan 2022 13:27:06
Get Tav_ can't control first ball, itten_just useless. Kent_again doing nothing, all off before it is too late, why no lowry been mom last 2,this is dreadful Gii needs to change this mess or is he the issue.



22 Nov 2021 00:52:52
Horrendous performance and result today and should be the catalyst for change, the substitutions were obviously just names in a bag and randomly selected they made zero sense whatsoever, 20 minutes to go and two goals down, what we need is a 3rd defensive midfielder!? Also what a boot in the nuts for guys like bacuna who played well in the previous match then gets dropped or sakala who scores 4 times in the international break, scored a hattrick at Motherwell recently but left out again for morelos who has been red rotten for a year now, it doesn't help that all 3 of our forwards have similar attributes, cedric itten isn't the answer but at least he could provide a different option at times, so for what it's worth.

Goalkeeper-mcgregor is finished unfortunately, mclaughlin isn't first choice rangers class and not sure mccrorie is quite ready yet so a goalie is needed soon

Defence-where do you begin? Gerrard backed himself into a corner making tav captain, gio has no such problem, take the armband off him, give it to Ryan Jack immediately and give Patterson a proper run of games, tav is a decent back up to have, barisic is miles away from what he can do but is still a better option than bassey who is just a big trier, helander will walk back into that team but I'd rather play marge Simpson than Jack Simpson, will never be a rangers player as long as his ar#e points towards the ground

Midfield-too much chopping and changing, Jack and aribo would always play for me with one other, a more attacking player such as bacuna against the stuffy teams who sit in and keep the likes of kamara for some of the tougher games where a little extra protection is needed for the back 4,steven Davis-thanks but your times up too

Attack-ianis hagi, too slow and weak for Scottish football, if his name was ianis popescu or anything other than hagi we wouldn't rate him, wright has potential but lots to prove, Kent is either brilliant or useless, sakala is willing but then so am I, roofe would be my preferred option up front just now as morelos would be left on the bench til his attitude vastly improves, disinterested, lazy, couldn't trap a bag of cement, (how many times does he give the ball away or even kick it out the park? ) get in the box and be a goal threat again, be a nuisance to defenders,

The problems are plentiful just now but hopefully gio can fix a few things starting if not on Thursday then definitely by next Sunday when the really important stuff starts again

Better times to come soon hopefully bears.


1.) 22 Nov 2021 01:39:53
i agree with a lot you say mate, actually i find it incredible that rangers fans are happily willing to constantly attack real rangers legends like barry ferguson, whille following morelos off a cliff, i said 2 years ago morelos was not a good footballer, and certainly never ever in the same class as players we have had in the past, hagi is a sanddancer, although its great that his value rises about 5m every 4 weeks when he has a decent game, alfie has been dreadful week in week out for years. tav is awful, goldson thinks he's beckenbauer and kent isn't interested,
il say it again, i'm convinced paterson was sold long ago too
only my opinion of course,

2.) 22 Nov 2021 06:43:33
Careful, you will get accused of Alfredo bashing!

3.) 22 Nov 2021 07:00:29
I’m well aware of that yately, I’ve followed rangers for over 50 years and I know what a good Rangers player looks like, I considered last seasons title, similar to the ones Rodgers and Lennon won, ie without competition,
Not withstanding the joy I got in winning it of course.

4.) 22 Nov 2021 07:19:59
Yet someome will come on with a stat amd say were 4 points clear and still in europe. Defence is so unorganised. Its genuinely like the 1st time they have ever met.

5.) 22 Nov 2021 07:58:16
4 points clear and still in Europe.
And plenty have said Gio is an upgrade on Gerrard.
So if an "inferior" manager like Gerrard can get this team top of the league and into the Europa League Groups then a "superior" manager like Gio can consolidate that 4 point lead, deliver the title and the Scottish Cup. 👍.

6.) 22 Nov 2021 08:31:30
Teams on a massive downward spiral. Sg jumped from a sinkin ship. Playing like that we will struggle to still be top going into new year fixture.

7.) 22 Nov 2021 08:37:07
I'm totally with you TT12, Morelos has not been worthy of a start this season, and also too many with inflated egos. Gio will start today. and a few won't know what's hit them, those with contract offers on the table should be told to sign or be confined to the 'B' Team, no more supporting those who are not trying, to sit back any longer will totally derail our season.

8.) 22 Nov 2021 10:30:21
Totally agree TT think it's only me and you that don't rate hagi, just don't get it with him.

9.) 22 Nov 2021 10:43:01
Irvger can’t confine a player to b team, maximum age to play there 21 only except is goalkeeper.



11 Nov 2021 19:17:27
Said it on here on Monday night before it was obvious Gerrard was leaving that for me Sean dyche would be a brilliant replacement-no nonsense, a decade of premier league experience, working without a huge budget, as for our squad I don't think Gerrard rates any of them as good enough to take villa forward, if I had to pick one I think he might consider aribo, young, athletic tic, skilful.


1.) 11 Nov 2021 19:35:01
Sean Dyche is on 70k a week.
Gerrard was no where that wage.

It won't be Sean Dyche at Ibrox.

2.) 11 Nov 2021 21:29:30
Dont rule Sean Dyche out . its clear he won't be offered a, top job down south ( don't know why) so why wouldn't he be tempted by us and not fight relegation every season albeit brilliantly.

3.) 11 Nov 2021 22:04:40
Style of football awful, made a career out of all out defence and not losing games. Wonder how he would cope with having to win every week.

4.) 11 Nov 2021 22:49:26
Style of football may have been awful because he has been fighting to avoid relegation every year with maybe the lowest budget in the Premier league, some of our previous successful managers haven't always played with attacking flair, gp spot on he will never get a top half epl job because he's not a fashionable enough name, maybe European football, the chance to win trophies, old firm battles, 50000 every other week might be a refreshing change for him despite a lower wage, he must be doing something right to last 9 years in the one Premier league job- not saying it will happen but not impossible, also some of the language on here about Gerrard is shameful from supposed rangers fans, criticism and opinion is fine but to call a guy a rat or a snake for looking after his family or career is garbage, not one of us would knock bag a wage rise or to compete at a higher level in any sport, he will always be the guy who stopped the ten and we should be thankful not angry, yes he could've departed in a better way but would you rather he left nicely after celtic did ten or left under a bit of a cloud having won 55 and stopped it?

Yeah, me too.

5.) 12 Nov 2021 04:26:45
once again not getting the lies and the sneaking away.



08 Nov 2021 00:29:06
OK bear with me, good 3 points, 2 poor goals conceded being the major negative today, felt bassey gave us loads of energy, playing only 1 holding midfielder at home allowed us to play with more flair, pace, more forward passes and it was also good to see so many attempts from outside the box today, the 4 creative players all played well, maybe apart from hagi-bacuna, aribo and Kent were excellent, sakala also put in a shift

Which leads me to my next point which I expect will get me grief, we are currently looking more fluid and sharper without morelos in the team, he looks overweight, disinterested, has the poorest first touch since Robert fleck and is simply not the player he was 18 months ago, all the build up play is slower when he plays he drops too deep, I want my main striker in the box on the end of things, he isn't the snarling, rampaging bull he was a season or 2 back, for me he is doing what edouard did to them last year, he has maybe not downed tools but is going through the motions, it's not good enough, 24 goals in his last 64 starts is a poorer return than roofe, in his time at ibrox he has scored some important goals (legia Warsaw, alashkert, porto etc) but his indiscipline and attitude has arguably cost us domestic cup trophies through being suspended or not bothering to get home from international duty in time, he is now running the risk of costing us a Premier league title and a champions league jackpot unless he gets the finger out and starts performing like the alfie of old, yet the fans worship him, well this one doesn't, what he did 2 years ago no longer washes and for all the fans who want to defend him I'd ask this-if he was a new signing we bought this summer and you watched him so far this season what would you think? That he's bang average at best, Gerrard sent him a wee message by letting him sit on the bench all day today that he's not an automatic pick or irreplaceable, and was right to do so, unfortunately I don't think he cares, if we are able to get one player in the January window I hope it's a striker 🇬🇧.


1.) 08 Nov 2021 03:24:59
Great goals and another 3 points. Defence is honkin tho. 1st goal is school boy stuff. Really bad.

2.) 08 Nov 2021 07:41:52
Loved Robert Fleck. Some of your post yearns for the Morelos of 2 years back then contradicts by stating he’s cost us cups etc by being suspended so which is it mate? I’m a fan of him but we did just fine without yesterday and have other options now.

3.) 08 Nov 2021 07:54:59
Jackboy : you say you want your striker in the box I agree but Gerrard has changed Alphie to the link up man he all over the final third out wide dropping deep but if that is not where Gerrard wants him he’d be told, I’ve no problems with him being dropped for yesterday’s game as I don’t think he has played well but he’s no longer played as a penalty box striker more like a false number nine pulling defender out of the box to allow space for the number ten, it’s the midfield that has slowed the team down far to many needless passes four five just to get over the half way line I like the look of Bacuna, Sakala has pace coming from deep but needs to calm down in final third you can’t beat everyone back to Alphie he need to find himself as he is still the best front player we have but not on recent form.

4.) 08 Nov 2021 08:26:59
So I'm assuming you think Morelos won us the league all by himself last season with his goals and assists?
You criticise Morelos for a lack of goals as a striker but say Sakala had a good game yesterday even though as first choice striker yesterday he failed to score?
So what you are saying is that Morelos is to blame for all our ills whether he plays or not, Jackboy55🤔🤭.

5.) 08 Nov 2021 09:33:40
His role has definately changed, however I kinda of agree when we are attacking, he needs to make more effort to get between the posts. He's did it a few times last few games and got goals. Had to play at least 30 yards closer to opposition box as for me he is just too deep at times.

6.) 08 Nov 2021 09:36:14
Bit harsh on Rab fleck as I liked him as a player.

7.) 08 Nov 2021 10:10:16
OK captain tav I'm not contradicting myself I'm looking for the goal return of 2 seasons ago or even close to it and the effort of 2 years ago without the indiscipline, if he can't do it he's no use to us as he's showing right now by being dropped, on both occasions he didn't play we played some of our best attacking football of the season, at home to Motherwell and yesterday

Twacoos I agree with some of what you say, in particular how pedestrian our build up play can be but alfie is our main striker I'm not interested in him dropping deep, linking up play, that's for the midfielders and wide men, or buzzwords like false number nines, I want him in the box scoring goals like an actual number nine, occupying centre halves etc

Mrpotatohead you clearly can't read or just want to make things up, I said sakala put in a shift I didn't say he had a good game, at least the effort was there unlike morelos at this time, morelos didn't play well for large parts of last season our title last year was built on a record defensive display wouldn't you say? And neither did I say at any point he is to blame for all our ills, but he is responsible for scoring goals and being the main striker the manager himself said he expects more and on more than one occasion this year has dropped him so I'd say he's not happy with him, but if you want to continue blindly worshipping him feel free that's your choice, I genuinely hope you come back on and tell me in 2 months time I was wrong after he's battered in 8 or 9 goals in the next 2 vital months, time will tell.

Herewego55 he is way too deep way too often, I agree with your post, however his role shouldn't change when he bangs in 30 goals in each of his first 2 seasons, I'd say that's exactly what his role should be

And to all, I liked Robert fleck too but he couldn't trap a bag of cement🇬🇧🇬🇧.

8.) 08 Nov 2021 10:28:55
Alfie must be playing to orders from above, but I did like the way he used to play, spinning defenders and running with it towards the box, he was exciting to watch, frustrating for me to see him so deep.

9.) 08 Nov 2021 11:37:22
You said Jackboy55:-
but his indiscipline and attitude has arguably cost us domestic cup trophies through being suspended or not bothering to get home from international duty in time, he is now running the risk of costing us a Premier league title and a champions league jackpot.
So in your opinion it's his fault we don't win anything when he doesn't play or score goals but it's ok for Itten, Defoe or Roofe not to step up last season in the Cup games?
And when he did score goals and create assists last season it was actually the defence that won us the title?
Strange train of thought, which your entitled to but I whole heartedly disagree with.

I think h22 has chosen his words poorly, not a blessing that someone gets a serious injury and I wish the boy a speedy recovery, where I do agree though is that he won't be a loss to the team I've said a few times on here I don't rate the guy I don't see anything he brings to the team, we have aribo for his position or arfield who as well as linking midfield to attack and posing a goal threat will also provide the graft and dig that hagi lacks, I'll be shot down in flames about assists etc as usual but I'm sorry I don't see it, if we don't sell anyone then I reckon all we need is a right winger, olsen would be the ideal fit, full Danish international, lots of first team experience in Italy and Denmark, tall, quick, can finish, the other names mentioned are much more risky, its whether we have the funds to get him that's the issue, whoever it is needs to be a first pick, not another option the same standard as Wright or sakala.

John25 there are no concerns about Jack's career or long term future, I do know the coaching staff regard Jack and arfield almost as one player now due to injury issues (at least they did under Gerrard) I also know 2 players have a terrible attitude towards training and look for any slight niggle to sit sessions out, apparently a pair of hypochondriacs.

Orygbmb and MOCbear I see this member of the backroom staff once a month, I don't snoop for info but might ask the odd leading question, I tend to get more info on injury situations than anything else and other titbits, sometimes I get some transfer news, would never give up who it was, for instance, and maybe this is common knowledge but I know for a fact we enquired about Nisbet last summer there was concrete interest there, if I hear anything I will put it on.

My friend who is in the dressing room tells me 1 definitely coming in (not including souttar) and maybe a 2nd, no names mentioned he doesn't always divulge them- he previously told me about lundstram and sakala before they were mentioned, he's also given me names that didn't materialise so need to wait and see I suppose.

First of all I slaughtered bassey as not being good enough and up to the middle of February I stand by that, he played unbelievably well from the dortmund away game til the end of the season and has improved beyond recognition, however a 20 million player he is not, at least not just now, he has only done it for 3 months, not even one full season yet, he still has some very raw edges and still has a mistake or two in him, let's take the blue glasses off he's nowhere near that price tag, if he plays next year like he has recently then you could start looking at that sort of money but not just now, an English club won't go over 10 million at the moment.

I agree, think this games too big for Wright, sakala isn't the answer either but he has played there, Wright or aribo aren't strikers, I'd take a 1 goal defeat right now, c'mon gers!
