Man U interested in Paterson. Could be a significant fee for us.


1.) 26 Feb 2024 08:40:06
Doesn't surprise me John, transfer between 2 EPL clubs, your right could be healthy boist for us.

2.) 26 Feb 2024 08:58:19
John, here's hoping. big Bassey seems to be doing well in the Epl, scored against Utd on Saturday.

3.) 26 Feb 2024 09:01:04
We have a 20% sell on for the lad.

4.) 26 Feb 2024 08:55:11
Hopefully this is true, John.
I haven't seen much of him, but I'm sure Ed001 posted something a while back that he wasn't impressed by him. Apologies if it wasn't you, Ed001.

5.) 26 Feb 2024 10:53:20
He struggles for games at Everton because he is not robust enough for dyche.

Both arsenal and united r showing interest, if Everton go down they r likely to sell Paterson and a few others.

6.) 26 Feb 2024 10:53:26
If he goes to Man U what's your valuation guys, what would they pay?

7.) 26 Feb 2024 12:17:23
Everton would want north of £20m+.

8.) 26 Feb 2024 12:53:05
Fork. With add ons it’s being said around 30.

So we could mb get 20% of 14 million profit.

9.) 26 Feb 2024 12:57:50
Aye prob, they are in trouble financially if I'm not mistaken, would be a nice bonus as John was saying 20% sell on.

10.) 26 Feb 2024 13:18:13
Just shy of 3mill would be nice John?.

11.) 26 Feb 2024 13:31:35
That’ll pay for Cortes then ?.

12.) 26 Feb 2024 17:00:58
Fork it would be excellent business

Rangers Motherwell then Manchester derby on the Sunday.

13.) 26 Feb 2024 18:24:27
John I know u pay attention to English youths.

What’s your knowledge and opinion of Darren fletchers 2 boys, I believe they’re twins, one plays for Scotland and one has turned out for England. If I’m correct I may be wrong.

14.) 26 Feb 2024 19:09:07
Let's hope it good tv John?.

15.) 26 Feb 2024 19:22:10
Both exceptional young players, u r correct that they have both played age group, plenty time for them to choose which country they represent

The gray brothers and the kids rat Newcastle are the ones Scotland need to tie up.

16.) 26 Feb 2024 19:55:22
Sure you predicted this over a year ago John, hope you're right once again.

17.) 26 Feb 2024 20:59:37
Archie Gray has always impressed me when I have watched Leeds.

18.) 26 Feb 2024 23:52:04
Cheers John.

I had read the signing of the fletcher biys totally transformed Man Utd’s age group they play in this season.
I think they were actually unbeaten last I read.
One brother being the star player and the other struggling to get a start atm.
This was around a month ago I read that.

19.) 27 Feb 2024 05:28:31
Obviously John227,you will be wanting/ hoping manchester utd win the manchester derby at the weekend, with you being a utd man, but i honestly can't see anything other than a manchester city win mate ? It makes no difference to me who wins between utd V city as i'll watch as a neutral and hope for a good game with plenty of goals ?.

20.) 27 Feb 2024 07:23:46
The loser over jeremie frimpong might look at patterson.

Sadly fimpong is the sought after right back in world football, and their sell on for him is ridiculous.

{Ed001's Note - he doesn't play full-back.}

21.) 27 Feb 2024 08:14:25
U could be right Walter. Saturday 100 times more important. At least I will see a wonderful friend.

22.) 27 Feb 2024 08:35:29
Here's hoping hopingfor a Utd win as I don't want city to win the league.

23.) 27 Feb 2024 11:45:43
Frimpong couldn't lace our captain james tavernier's boots ?.

24.) 27 Feb 2024 17:19:07
He plays wing back

SWS unsure if you watch world football, but frimpong is now top 3 right backs in the world. Easily.

25.) 27 Feb 2024 23:28:20
doesn’t even play rb.

26.) 28 Feb 2024 11:19:18
He plays right wing back, as I've already stated.

And would be right back at Liverpool, arsenal or united.

{Ed001's Note - more likely he would play on the wing actually, as that is pretty much the role he is playing for Leverkusen. At right-back he struggled, which is why Alonso went to a back 3, even though he was using a back 4 before taking the job there. If you think Tavernier is poor defensively, then you haven't watched Frimpong play right-back.}

27.) 28 Feb 2024 22:06:04
Alonso will bring Frimpong to Liverpool with him?

28.) 28 Feb 2024 23:20:35
Not a chance from pong plays ahead of Trent absolutely not a chance:

29.) 29 Feb 2024 16:14:24
1st of all Man U don’t have much too much to spend to keep within FFP as they have overspent over past few seasons. Secondly Everton NEED to sell and clubs are aware of this and will probably offer less of a fee because of this and we sold him 2 years ago so he will only have 2-3 years left on contract which would affect value slightly and finally he’s not an important player for Everton more of a squad player which again would lower his value.
I would guesstimate if he were to be sold to Man U the fee would be £10-15m.

30.) 01 Mar 2024 16:47:49
Glasgow, it will be 30m plus. They originally thought they could move him for around 40m .

The interest in him is because United see him as a cheap option instead paying likes of frimpong at 60 million

I know an epl player with 12 months left, played less than 12 starts being touted for 14 million, and that’s to a championship team.

31.) 02 Mar 2024 10:13:29
There is a lot going on at Everton at present including the need for clarification on the take over and the outcome of the current FairPlay Investigation that will also affect Nottingham Forest. Theoretically, Everton should be ok since they have effectively paid the points deduction penalty for their overspend already.
While Dacha is at Everton Patterson will not be his number one choice. As John 227 has mentioned, Patterson is not robust enough for him and he would rather have the funds to bring in a player that is more suited to hist style of play.
I reckon that Manchester United will have Arsenal to contend with if they want to secure Patterson as I understand that there is interest from them. Either way, it should be good news for us since I would expect him to be sold for £25m - £30m.

32.) 02 Mar 2024 13:35:04
On the button Berkshire, a goodwell written post.



01 Feb 2024 11:59:34
Rangers gave rejected two offers from Belgium and Italy for deckers loan with obligation to buy.


1.) 01 Feb 2024 13:00:23
are we working on bringing a striker in John?

2.) 01 Feb 2024 13:09:22
Can't imagine we could sanction a sale given the state of the Euro squad and our limit of 3 changes. It's odd given his start, but as of now (even without the Euro squad issue) I wouldn't sell him without it being for a good profit, and with a ready made replacement lined up (which doesn;t seem to be the case) .

3.) 01 Feb 2024 13:10:15
There is no chance we let him go without bringing in replacement/ s.

4.) 01 Feb 2024 13:39:05

5.) 01 Feb 2024 14:23:06
We r talking to at least one.

6.) 01 Feb 2024 14:46:18
He means big Cyril robmc predictive txt it looks like.

7.) 01 Feb 2024 15:12:11
Not talking to any strikers we ain't brining one in PC feels we are covered in that area.

8.) 01 Feb 2024 16:41:01
Any names @John227?

9.) 01 Feb 2024 16:45:34
He means Dessers.

10.) 01 Feb 2024 17:14:21
Rfc no point mate, Gary says we r talking to no one.

11.) 01 Feb 2024 18:20:44
???that’s y told!

12.) 01 Feb 2024 18:40:56
@john227 I’m always the optimist! If we don’t we don’t get anyone but I don’t believe we ain’t looking, but needs to fit big Phil’s standards, so I’m okay with what will be…. Denkey in the building at 11.29! ???.



30 Jan 2024 19:51:17
It's now mad 48 hours. Officially
Anyone picking up Roofe to hearts is paying his wages.

The hearts lad to u 3.5 year deal.


1.) 30 Jan 2024 21:06:02
Hearts can't afford roofe's wage. They couldn't afford quarter his wage?

2.) 30 Jan 2024 21:06:08
What does this mean?

3.) 30 Jan 2024 21:06:57
The hearts lad being shankland John?

4.) 30 Jan 2024 21:11:55
Hearts couldn't afford Roofe's wages and is he not injured anyway.

5.) 30 Jan 2024 21:18:45
How can Hearts get an injured player tho? That would go down as one of the weirdest transfers of recent times. I’m not doubting ya, your just posting stuff you’ve heard but it doesn’t make sense.

What about Cortes and Jefte, any idea when that will be announced? if it’s still happening.

6.) 30 Jan 2024 21:24:33
Johns said we would pay Roofes wage!

7.) 30 Jan 2024 21:29:11
I’d doubt roofe would have any suitors.

8.) 30 Jan 2024 21:31:12
Can't afford the medical bills.

9.) 30 Jan 2024 21:34:39
Never happening, if they can't afford over 12k to give shankland more money then roofes 35k is never going to be feesable.

10.) 30 Jan 2024 21:36:53
I thought roofe was out injured unless he is due back shortly and PC is fed up with him, I was hearing Armstrong from kille.

11.) 30 Jan 2024 21:37:47
Do you mean roofe for shankland?

12.) 30 Jan 2024 21:39:01
Nonsense, Roofes made of chocolate hearts wouldn't want him .

Shankland isn't happening said this all window .

13.) 30 Jan 2024 22:28:49
On a pay as you play basis?
Can only see that being an option for a club bringing in Roofe as he’s never available for selection.
Can’t see him going to a lower Scottish club if that was the case either, more chance of him going back down south if anything.

14.) 30 Jan 2024 22:33:29

15.) 30 Jan 2024 22:35:30
Was thinking today that Roofe will retire soon because of not being able to play, or we could see him being released going to another club and then being fit! Like Lazarus Helander!

16.) 30 Jan 2024 22:38:07
I’d take that all day.

£3.5m 4 year deal

They get Roofe for 6 months we pay roofes wages and everyone’s happy

That’s a great deal.

17.) 30 Jan 2024 22:43:01
Lol blue89 that one word caused chaos Las week.

18.) 30 Jan 2024 22:50:34
What he's saying is

"Anyone picking up Roofe to hearts? Us (rangers) paying his wages.

The hearts lad (shanks) to us 3.5 year deal. "

So we sign shankland and they get roofe, probably on loan, and we still pay 100% of his wages. If roofe could stay fit I could see it but would they get more than 5 games out him? I presume we would still need to pay 3m+? Who knows, just 24hrs of these rumours then we can relax.

19.) 31 Jan 2024 06:13:10
Roofe wouldn’t last the drive to Edin without breakdown.

20.) 31 Jan 2024 06:29:46
Saw the Shankland Roofe thin on a spoof X account earlier. say no more.



30 Jan 2024 10:29:55
Can anyone advise, ifwolves sell silva for more than 15 million we get 10% of the excess fee

If less than 15 we get 750 k.


1.) 30 Jan 2024 11:00:12
why is he being sold?

2.) 30 Jan 2024 11:00:38
John, when would he have to sold by, restricted to a summer 2024 exit from Wolves?

3.) 30 Jan 2024 11:06:30
All I know is I read wolves are paying most of his wages
I’m hoping we can get another loan deal on him in summer for next season?

4.) 30 Jan 2024 11:08:03
Sorry John, not sure what you mean? Are you suggesting that Wolves may be about to sell Silva during this window and if they do we’ll get a percentage cut of the sale as ‘compensation’?

5.) 30 Jan 2024 11:14:23
Not sure how we’d benefit anything from Silva. Unless you’re talking about them recalling him in Jan but not sure how the sales price would impact us.

6.) 30 Jan 2024 11:15:13
Interesting John. How and why would Wolves agree this though?

7.) 30 Jan 2024 11:21:36
Don't think we get anything, isn't it a straight loan, with no add ons etc.

Unless Silva starts scoring regularly again, his value will plummet further.
Seems like wolves want to get him off there books, unless he can score in our league with relative ease, i see no need to loan him longer than our current deal.
Time will tell i guess.

8.) 30 Jan 2024 11:26:33
Silva still has 2 years left to run on contract when his loan ends with us.
perhaps some team will take a gamble on him rediscovering his from that saw his value shoot up to 25 mill prior to Wolves going overboard with there 40 mill purchase, imagine paying 28 mill over actual value, when he was worth 12 mill, similar to his current value
Highest worth was 15 mill.

9.) 30 Jan 2024 11:29:59
If they sold him while on loan to us maybe compo then?

10.) 30 Jan 2024 11:48:36
No it’s the summer window they intend to sell him as he is heading out of contract, they wanted us to put him in shop window, obviously we could not afford his fee

Wolves are trying to recoup a decent part of the 35 million they spent on fee

Stig I don Think I’d be unhappy with another year on deal, same potentially re sima.

11.) 30 Jan 2024 11:49:21
Silva has played for two clubs already this season so if sold in this window he won’t be able to play for another club til nx season kinda like how we couldn’t get Beck from Liverpool after he played for them.

12.) 30 Jan 2024 12:11:13
I think wolves fancy punting silva to Saudi in summer and thought if they put him here he would perform similar at least t jota, who was sold for £25m, in turn they hoped to sell silva for similar money to Saudi and enticed us with a % of sale loan deal.

Good business for us.

13.) 30 Jan 2024 12:15:56
We don’t own the player so we wouldn’t be entitled to anything if Wolves sell him at any point.
He can’t be recalled and sold in this window either having already played for Wolves and Rangers this season as you can’t play for 3 clubs in same season.
He could be recalled by Wolves and play for them again this season but not a different team and I doubt they would have a recall clause on a 6 month loan. The only possibility of us getting some form of financial gain on him would be if we allow them to recall him during this window.

14.) 30 Jan 2024 12:30:15
Think John means if they sell in this window. Similar to us buying jefte while he is on loan.

15.) 30 Jan 2024 12:50:44
As someone has already said, he can`t play for a third club this season so he won`t be sold in this window .

16.) 30 Jan 2024 13:12:39
He doesn’t mean this window it would basically be like getting compensation for putting him in the shop window and increasing the fee Wolves would get for him.

17.) 30 Jan 2024 13:19:30
I th Silva would need to up his game for wolves to get anything decent back.

18.) 30 Jan 2024 13:48:09
Mb I did not explain it well, as Stevie says sell him in summer, and they have and agreement with rangers fir putting him in shop window

100% on the button David.

19.) 30 Jan 2024 14:05:51
Not sure John but I’ll ask when I’m at the the training centre tomorrow.

20.) 30 Jan 2024 14:06:07
Wolves only have themselves to blame splashing out 40 mill for a 15 mill player, paying 25 mill over his actual worth, they will be lucky to get 12 mill for him now, unless he hits some crazy form, makes sense wolves will try and sell him in the summer window, when he will have 2 years left on his contract,
otherwise they risk the prospect of him going for even less the season after with 1 year left on his contract
for around half his worth.
Can't see us getting a full 12 months extra loan, especially if we are not going to buy him.
Only reason Silva's even at rangers is thanks to Koppen, who negotiated a loan for Silva while he was at PSV not too long ago.

148 games - 24 goals in 4 years.

A former Portuguese league youth prodigy.

Played 73 games across 3 competitions for wolves over 3 seasons, goal tally is mere 5 goals.

Career goal average - 1 goal per 6 games played.

You can see why they are keen to get rid of the lad, he isn't EPL league level, the facts don't lie.

To put it into perspective,

Dessers total games played 313 - goals scored - 123 - 1 goal every 2.5 games.

Lammers total games played 235 - goals scored - 63 - 1 goal every 3.7 games.

That puts Silva well behind those 2.

Wouldn't expect too much from the lad,
He rarely scores from any of the 3 positions he plays as CF / SS / LW.
Wolves clearly overrated and heavily over valued him, paying well over 3 times his actual worth 12 mill euros but they paid 40 mill euros, Porto hit the jackpot Silva cost them nothing in transfer fees, lol, Wolves got ripped.
And no decent clubs are willing to buy.

Perhaps he is a Defensive Midfielder just like his big brother who played at Lazio and of course his Father a former Portuguese league champion with Boavista.
Pretty clear he has never or will be a successful attacking player.

21.) 30 Jan 2024 14:11:27
Yeah definitely John another year on Silva and Sima would be 2 solid deals
it’s a big ask though both players very good.

22.) 30 Jan 2024 14:49:37
We need to play him! Plays at Dumbarton in the cup, yet didn’t see minutes against st mirren in the league. While Scott Wright started the game and bizarrely Sterling played left wing!



26 Jan 2024 15:44:00
Next incoming due.


1.) 26 Jan 2024 17:38:42
Do you mean Jefte or a different signing, John?

2.) 26 Jan 2024 17:39:46
Hope it's not a Hefte price to pay.

3.) 26 Jan 2024 17:58:26
Chas I I meant Jefté, it’s all about Cyprus due to him not being in squad, my brother lives there, he says too good for Cypriot football, so fingers crossed we have unearthed a diamond.

4.) 26 Jan 2024 18:17:55
That's one out of the blue. Could be a good window.

5.) 26 Jan 2024 18:29:29
That sounds promising, John. Let’s hope we have indeed.

On paper, I’m delighted with the business so far. I’m sure a striker will come in. Hopefully we have enough to get Manhoef too, but I may be pushing it.

6.) 26 Jan 2024 18:33:12
That’s promising John.

7.) 26 Jan 2024 18:40:51
Due when? Today? Tmro? Seen he wasn't in the squad today.

8.) 26 Jan 2024 20:39:53
John we know YouTube is not good but you can spot his things about him he's pacy and good dribbling ability, seems to fire balls in like Barisic, I'm liking what we're doing now with looking in different markets and the silence also, like you said spoke highly about in that league, said earlier maybe lw but watched him for that Cypriot team he was played at lb and looks impressive there.

9.) 26 Jan 2024 22:11:03
Let's hope we pull a striker and wide player out the blue also.

10.) 26 Jan 2024 23:02:28
If we get jefte in then surely borna or yilmaz are way? hopefully we pull off signing a striker or winger before the end of the window or even both. Personally I think if jefte comes in our business will be finished…hope not tho.

Someone is extracting the p.


1.) 22 Mar 2024 20:33:33
Far too expensive for the talent that's going to be on show. I've noticed this season in the spl the huge amount of empty seats at games. I'd like to see clubs trying to do something to improve this. surely it would be in everyone's best interest if they did.

Think you need to look bigger picture, he done f%%% all in perhaps more physical league. Let him continue score we might get cash back.

Scotty, because he is an exceptional youth coach.

He is a very good youth coach and I hope he succeeds. My only concern is it’s a very different job he’s taken on and was a very different role at Killie.

There you go more media hype, as I said clean sheets against livi, Dundee etc don't count,

Unfortunately it's record in Europe and Celtic that count,

Let's enjoy butland and least he can't get injured on international duty, next call up likely to be Trafford.


{Ed001's Note - Trafford is awful, particularly with the ball at his feet. He is up his own arse as well. Always panics under pressure on the ball, which has cost Burnley time and time again. If he gets a call up, England really are in trouble.}

Ed that’s not what the england camp thin. But it’s about opinions.

{Ed001's Note - the England camp think Maguire is good so I will stick to my own opinion as at least I have a clue unlike Southgate, who is a gimp.}

Union no issue at all, u r just confirming what I had heard, couple good names in there I think, lyall Cameron Dundee.

We have a buy back clause re mayo. I’m not convinced he would be the standard required.

Rtv If u see me on here I said I’d always keep sakala as a squad player Howe ever rangers decided he was poor and took four million

Colak absolUley cheated the fans. At presen 9 minutes in six games in second tier so we made good money

Rtv average penalties scored 75 % so dessers doing well, tav has scored u.
