QPR have asked aston villa for permission to speak to first team coach michael beale about becoming their new manager I think that would be a fantastic appointment for QPR, if they can convince him to leave villa .

Sir Walter Smith OBE

1.) 26 May 2022 13:16:51
This was doing rounds on Saturday, an ex Ger to be his assistant.

2.) 26 May 2022 13:54:13
Pressed too soon, names mention Defoe and jacobs who runs academy.

3.) 26 May 2022 13:58:48
I hate predicting text Zeb.

4.) 26 May 2022 14:21:17
Without Beale Gerrard would be absolutely screwed - I'd be stunned if he let's him go to QPR.

5.) 26 May 2022 15:09:31
If Beale wants to go gerrard and villa don’t really have a choice.

6.) 26 May 2022 16:38:27
I would love to see how Beale would do with his own Team. Whether QPR would be the right team I just don't know.

7.) 26 May 2022 16:51:57
Berkshire that would be his gamble. I feel he would need to take them to at least playoffs.

8.) 26 May 2022 17:22:15
I like many bears, have all the time in the world for michael beale and he certainly loves our club I'm delighted gio is our manager but hand on heart my first choice when i knew gerrard was leaving, was michael beale He has a fantastic coaching brain and this guy actually has written coaching manuals and takes coaching classes If indeed he does become the new manager of QPR, i will be watching closely who he's doing and i most certainly wish him all the very best of luck in the world .

9.) 26 May 2022 18:45:08
Wish him all the best. Will be very interesting to see how he does. Being a manager is a totally different ask and whilst he most definitely seems to have a great tactical brain, it will be really interesting to see how if he has the leadership and motivational skills to make it work.

10.) 26 May 2022 18:49:54
Did this story or something like it, not come up last year as well?

11.) 26 May 2022 19:20:22
Bar yes his name gets floated a few times.

12.) 26 may 2022 22:46:33
i think the job is a world away from my time, think a manager needs people who do the coaching and staffing side of things, alex ferguson was never the greatest coach as far as i believe but he surrounded himself with knowledge and experience, that’s the tricky part, getting the right people around you

i think maybe too many nowadays surround themselves with their pals, and stick with those mates sometimes too long and to the detriment of they’re own reputation and careers, john you may know how beale was the main man coaching wise at ibrox, coop knew too, and so will plenty inside the game, it’s what club takes that opportunity to bring in a young fantastic coach and give him time to become great, i think that will happen for beale.

13.) 27 May 2022 14:04:31
So when we were stubborn and only played one way with the same formation regardless of results was that Beale or Gerrard? Good coaches don’t necessarily make good managers. Wish him well if he does go on to be a manager but I’m glad we have gio and didn’t go for Beale. Gio got further in europa in 6 month than they did in 3.5 years. Gio has proven he is good at tactics and formation, doesn’t need a right hand man to do it for him.



23 May 2022 12:48:45
I work beside a motherwell diehard who's convinced that they're signing steven davis if as expected rangers don't offer him a deal .

Sir Walter Smith OBE

1.) 23 May 2022 13:02:13
I read that earlier as well coops that’s mwell seriously interested.

2.) 23 May 2022 13:13:34
Apparently between st mirren and Motherwell.

3.) 23 May 2022 13:13:34
Apparently between st mirren and Motherwell.

4.) 23 May 2022 14:12:31
I think gers are going to sit down with stevie d before anything is decided 1yr at gers or wether he be off to m/ well or st mirren.

5.) 23 May 2022 15:15:41
In all todays papers.

6.) 23 May 2022 16:39:26
1 year offer will be on the table for wee Davo this week.

7.) 23 May 2022 17:43:11
John25 and Stormtrooper, you wonder how on earth can motherwell or st. mirren afford wee davo's wages .

8.) 23 May 2022 17:46:31
i can't see davis playing for another scottih club tbh, i think he will stay but if not as much as i hate this idea i could see him joining up with brown at fleetwood.

9.) 23 May 2022 19:33:44
Walter because he is prepared to accept say 3k, I wrote here two weeks ago Sunderland very interested
Allegedly 10 k.
Will depend if he wants involved in coaching.

10.) 23 May 2022 19:55:58
He will be taking a massive wage cut coops he won’t get anywhere near what we were paying him anymore because of age.

11.) 23 may 2022 20:39:13
mainly because he wont be on anywhere like his current salary, the glenbuck cherrypickers could afford him, if he said he would take wan n wumpence a week, and free cherries.

12.) 23 May 2022 20:44:53
The thing is he will want 6/ 8k off rangers because he won’t be playing week in week out where as Motherwell would prob offer 2/ 3k and he would be playing week in week out.



17 May 2022 05:12:55
Hearing it's a tug of war between dundee and raith rovers to appoint current kelty hearts manager kevin thomson as their new manager .

Sir Walter Smith OBE

1.) 17 May 2022 10:40:56
Thankfully there is nothing interesting happening with our own club at the moment. Great news. lol.

2.) 17 May 2022 11:57:50
Eve of euro final. Kevin thomsons name could not further from my mind .

3.) 17 May 2022 19:39:22
I'll sleep better tonight, thanks coops.

4.) 17 May 2022 21:24:38
Glad i could help SirWalterMcCoist .

5.) 17 May 2022 23:43:46
Swso, did you hit the agree button when you replied to swmccoist, mate?

6.) 18 May 2022 10:31:55
Ffs it's a rumours page and I'm interested to hear about it so no need to leave sarky comments.

7.) 18 May 2022 12:32:04
Every need to leave sarky comments. All fun, don't get your wig in a twist. It's just not really relevant to what is happening right now. Take care. xx.

8.) 18 May 2022 14:51:45
It's relevant as KT is a Ranger and been tipped by many a future Gers manager anyway good luck whoever he goes too.

9.) 21 May 2022 00:39:37
One walter& one walter obe, are you the same guy?



07 May 2022 20:35:26
Has anyone else read that although not confirmed yet, that rangers might possibly have to wear their purple jersey for the europa league final against eintracht frankfurt 🤔 It's because frankfurt are deemed the home team and their home kit is all black and there's stories stating rangers won't be able to play in our traditional royal blue home jerseys or our navy jerseys as it will clash with frankfurt's home kit. I hope to god we can play in our home kit🙏.

Sir Walter Smith OBE

1.) 08 May 2022 01:51:11
You're pretty much saying what is in the Record, then.

2.) 08 May 2022 03:31:00
Frequent reader, first time poster here. I saw the same thing in the DR, but I am optimistic we can wear our home shirt because we played away to Lyon in all blue while Lyon wore all black.

3.) 08 May 2022 07:38:53
I never saw it in the DR my friend 🤔 I read it elsewhere but you're correct the daily rag had it later on.

4.) 08 May 2022 09:01:16
I also really do hope we can play in our traditional royal blue home kit for our europa league final against eintracht frankfurt 🙏🙏.

5.) 08 May 2022 09:25:47
Haven’t read it anywhere yet but thought crossed my mind when I watched their highlights against West Ham. I wasn’t aware who was the home or away team at time.

6.) 08 May 2022 12:00:12
Apparently a suggestion of a mix of 3 strips, ? With purple being the top?

7.) 08 May 2022 13:16:12
Like Walter blue or the white top.

8.) 08 May 2022 13:31:18
Could we not wear the white anniversary top.

9.) 08 May 2022 14:15:31
Blue or white tops would be ok. Must admit I love the all blue strip.

10.) 08 May 2022 13:33:11
If we're not allowed to play in home top, can we not play in white top. That purple one its horrible.

11.) 08 May 2022 14:57:34
FFS are you woman or what? . who cares what kit we use as long as we win 🤨.

12.) 08 May 2022 16:44:06
The new papers are saying it will be purple top with white shorts and white soxs as not allowed black sox or shorts either.

13.) 08 May 2022 16:56:30
We've just played utd blue vs black.

14.) 09 May 2022 08:24:50
utter bollocks there is no kit clash so we'll use our normal home kit and frankfurt will use theirs.

15.) 09 May 2022 11:18:49
I honestly couldn’t give a toss what strip we wear as long as we are lifting that trophy up.

16.) 09 May 2022 16:20:02
Hope no the purple pansey shirt its horrible.

17.) 09 May 2022 17:02:47
Wwst, what are you talking about, the pansey shirt,?

18.) 09 May 2022 17:14:13
There is no clash with blue top and white shorts, there is with socks. All red socks sorts that, a white band in the top would be the same as 1972 and that would be class👍.



05 May 2022 05:28:21
I don't know if you've heard anything regarding kevin thomson John25 🤔 I was told last night that raith rovers very interested in thommo becoming their new manager 🤔I know how ambitious KT is as i've been up at a few kelty hearts games through an invite from KT👌He's a great fella and very down to earth with a very good coaching brain and terrific attitude 👌I wish him all the very best whether he remains the kelty hearts manager or does indeed become the new raith rovers manager 👍 He'd be a very good choice for raith rovers imo, but i do know he loves working with kelty 🤔Good luck thommo wherever you go in management 🤞.

Sir Walter Smith OBE

1.) 05 May 2022 08:16:09
Walter in the news papers.

2.) 05 May 2022 08:57:15
I personally know thommo and dean mckenzie at kelty John25 👍Thommo himself told me he had been interviewed for the kilmarnock manager job long before it hit any media mate 👍.

3.) 05 May 2022 09:06:06
Won't leave Kelty for a team in the same division.

4.) 05 May 2022 09:26:53
It was well known he was interviewed at killie, he was a clear second and some off the board wanted him instead off mcinness.
If mcinness goes to hibs, Thomson will be back in frame.
He needs to be careful because it will set him back going to a killie hibs etc as he will be sacked.

5.) 05 May 2022 09:42:07
Kelly won’t be in the same division as Raith rovers, they are safe in the championship, Kelly will go up to 1st division.

6.) 05 May 2022 14:45:23
Tjrfc, kelty in the league below raith rovers pal👍 John25,i personally know thommo very well and he's had me up at kelty a few times my friend, hand on heart mate 👍.

7.) 05 May 2022 16:54:57
KT doing the hard graft in lower leagues to get a big job down the line👍. Head down and keep learning. As John says go to early and you get Shaun Maloneid out the door in 4 months😂. You never know in 5/ 10 years could be in the dugout of the famous🧐.

8.) 06 May 2022 13:00:44
Coops if u know Thommo then ask him 👍🏻 Personally I think he will step u level and progress his coaching status which at the minute is high. His goal is at rangers and I’d avoid hibs job at all costs.

9.) 06 May 2022 19:04:48
Scotty123,i've already told you that thommo told me about the kilmarnock job and there's interest in him from raith rovers.

10.) 06 May 2022 23:35:52
Ask him about Raith then coops?

11.) 07 May 2022 15:46:48
He's told me there's interest and that's all so far Scotty123🤔.

I see rangers have beaten liverpool and man utd to the signing of the aberdeen wonderkid lancelot pollard .

Sir Walter Smith OBE

1.) 27 May 2022 19:31:00
Excellent signing Walter.

2.) 27 May 2022 19:44:42
Hopefully he is as heroic as lancelot .

3.) 27 May 2022 20:26:09
Where does he play.

4.) 27 May 2022 20:36:46
We’re signing a lot of young forwarders, surely we need to strike gold with one of them .

5.) 27 May 2022 20:53:51
John is he roughly the same age as Wilson? Or is he older?

6.) 27 May 2022 20:54:06
Striker bgate.

7.) 27 May 2022 20:56:11
On the week wilson confirms he's leaving us we sign this boy, who knows he could end up being the better footballer, great business by the club.

8.) 27 May 2022 21:25:32
Sounds like a character out of a Harry Potter book.

9.) 27 May 2022 23:27:33
Have we definitely signed him I just see we are in for him.

10.) 28 May 2022 06:57:07
I think he's a year or so younger than rory wilson stormtrooper .

11.) 28 May 2022 08:46:55
Couple off months younger. Wilson was 16 January.

12.) 28 May 2022 08:47:39
Mark. Possible will be interesting to follow both careers.



27 May 2022 18:10:10
John25, did you get any info on the name of the player you were told we're signing who needs no introduction mate .

Sir Walter Smith OBE

1.) 27 May 2022 19:31:42
Walter no nothing at all, very very quite re major signings.

2.) 27 may 2022 22:57:15
not good enough, john, not good enough at all,

3.) 28 May 2022 08:49:43
I agree Tom. But I could make up a name, how about lewendowski, might get on our bench.
I’m sure someone would say too old.



27 May 2022 17:59:11
Obviously with all this speculation regarding our left back calvin bassey, John25 has given us an update on young yfeko that he's possibly going to be even better than bassey I've certainly no reason to doubt John25
My question to you John25 is, do you think if as expected we do sell bassey is this young man his direct replacement into our first team squad to firstly understudy barisic with eventually becoming our no.1 left back .

Sir Walter Smith OBE

1.) 27 May 2022 19:32:52
No I see him becoming our ch. but he won’t let us down if required to be an lb.

2.) 27 May 2022 19:39:45
If north 20 million we can't turn it down and must take it. Similar to patterson. Need to start cashing in on players when stock is high.

3.) 27 May 2022 19:51:28
I thought he was stronger in the middle? I’m looking forward to see if Ciubotaru can get near the first team. He was pretty confident that he’d be in the first team this season coming.

4.) 27 May 2022 23:16:57
SirWalter- have you some kind of bromance with John25?

5.) 27 May 2022 23:28:27
Any you guys think we should go back for joe rothwell he's free agent now.

6.) 28 May 2022 00:09:45
Not seen much of him but Tom Lawrence is 1 I'd move for.

7.) 28 May 2022 04:32:34
Baxterboy trying to see what he’s had for breakfast springs to mind .

8.) 28 May 2022 08:55:09
One Walter too much baggage for me.



26 May 2022 22:42:06
Just after seeing on sky sports news that calvin bassey is very settled at rangers but would be open to talking to aston villa I hand on heart think we'll sell bassey this close season, in what will be a scottish record transfer fee north of £25million Like most i'll be sad to see bassey leave, but like i say money talks and our club can't/ won't turn that sort of money down Sky sports are reporting their belief is there's as many as 7 clubs chasing bassey's signature, which includes 3 german clubs .

Sir Walter Smith OBE

1.) 26 May 2022 23:50:47
3 clubs likely Dortmund Leipzig and Frankfurt I’d imagine coops lol
It would be funny if he want back tkk on Leicester for 25 million wouldn’t it haha.

2.) 27 may 2022 00:05:39
hold out for a record price and sell on, or give cal another deal and make an agreement with him on future offers.

3.) 27 May 2022 07:19:07
I like bassey for his effort and passion. But 25 million. Let the bidding start.

4.) 27 May 2022 07:50:00
Any figure near 25 million we simply couldn't turn down.

5.) 27 May 2022 08:13:22
He said he was happy after the SC win.
And that's the dilemma for the club.
He needs to either extend his contract if he is "happy".
Or the club need to entertain offers as although he has 2 years left on his current contract, we can't be allowing players who fit the business model ( buy cheap and improve ) leaving for nothing or a fraction of his value.



23 May 2022 20:53:47
We all hope that we can keep hold of the superb calvin bassey Some of our former players are saying he's our kieran tierney and worth around £20million at least, if clubs as expected, do come to sign him Fellow bears out there do we reckon that calvin bassey will go on to be better than kieran tierney or andy robertson for that matter in your totally unbiased opinions .

Sir Walter Smith OBE

1.) 23 May 2022 21:12:30
£20 million and he's away. Can't turn that money down.

2.) 23 May 2022 21:25:57
He definitely has the potential? And in my humble opinion yes he will hopefully after another few years with us.

3.) 23 May 2022 21:35:18
I think Bassey could go to be world class playing for clubs at the very top. £20m all day long plus add on’s.

4.) 23 May 2022 21:52:00
Andy Robertson has won every trophy available to any club player in Europe. Bassey has been brilliant the last couple of months but got a long way to go to match him lol kt has only won a fa cup since leaving Scotland so wouldn’t be hard to match him.

5.) 23 May 2022 22:21:32
You sell when at highest value; imo Kamara, Aribo and Barasic were at there highest value at end of last season and now at a lower value. 20 million for Bassey along with selling Aribo would give us money to rebuild our squad.

6.) 24 May 2022 05:57:05
He had potential to be a great player but it’s impossible to say if he will have a better career than Robertson who has won everything down in England.

7.) 24 May 2022 10:49:37
Much as I want to see Bassey as a Rangers player for many years to come, a fee of £20m +, which is being touted by the Media would go a long way to helping GVB bring in the quality of player needed and hopefully provide the funds to allow us to secure Kent and Morelos on new contracts. The question for me is whether Gio will be given the funding and will he be allowed to bring in his own players.

8.) 24 May 2022 11:46:04
I do believe the question was about the player becoming world class not what team wins most trophies.

9.) 24 May 2022 15:51:34
if we can tie him down to another couple of years as John suggested we have tried to do, i can only see his value increasing. we have other assets we can sell short term surely to build around the likes of bassey next season.

My take on it was connor goldson wasn't wanting to break our wage structure, but was wanting to be on parity to our top earner kemar roofe He most definitely has a case if this is the case, as goldson plays every game, whereas although i rate roofe, he misses a lot through niggling injuries Maybe John25 can shed some light on goldson's wage demands but that's what i was told anyway guys .

Having been in the company of big marvin andrews, it doesn't surprise me in the least, he done that for your daughter Me2 He's a cracking big bloke with a very kind heart ??
He was a good centre half for rangers and was one of best ever centre halfs we had at headering a football He was so powerful and immense in the air I kid you not, i remember big marv clearing a cross ball against celtic with his head and the ball cleared the halfway line and landed in their half in-between the half way line and their 18 yard box His neck muscles were incredible .
