I understand it's early in the squads preparation, but what I've seen so far. Has Jordan Jones got a left foot? he's playing on the left but turns inside everytime. Barîsîc should not be anywhere near the 1st team, his lack of passion shows as it did last season. We've missed Candeias and his partnership with Tav, why is Barîsîc taking corners on the right hand of the pitch? To me the team looks disjointed, as I said, down that left hand side there seems to be no options of attack with Barîsîc and Jones looking to turn back and play a square ball.

Agree0 Disagree0

what do you think Bryan, just write the season off?

09 Jul 2019 18:43:00
Aw come on, I've made an observation, if you disagree then try and construct a sentence. My opening sentence was I understand it's early, Jones never crossed a ball with his left foot the entire time he was on the park. Barîsîc did come onto a decent game with the delivery but it looks an area of the parks against better opposition, where we'd struggle. Ojo looks in a different league as does kamara and Davis. I thought Defoe looked a little of the pace, Morelos looks like he's had 2 weeks in KFC but so did boyd for years. I hope we can get Kent because I don't think Jones is the answer.

first competitive game of the season, it was a slow start but winning 4-0. Maybe a bit early to be having a go at players bryan1978?

09 Jul 2019 18:56:07
Bryan try not to worry pet. Strolled to a 4-0 win, 2nd game of pre season on a difficult pitch. Everyone played well, no injuries, no red cards.

Let’s chill.

09 Jul 2019 18:59:35
We win 4 nil and you're critical?

09 Jul 2019 19:01:52
Still in pre season 4_ 0 on an artificial pitch will do me. Plenty of time to tweek things.

09 Jul 2019 19:05:07
Sell them all! Sack the manager! No progress since niderkorm and pedro in a Bush!

09 Jul 2019 19:05:25
think your eating humble pie bud.

09 Jul 2019 19:06:17
Aye Barisic is hopeless?
Taxi for Bryan1978!😂.

09 Jul 2019 19:15:15
Bryan did you wait until half time or stop watching the game just to write players off before 1 game completed.

09 Jul 2019 19:19:42
Yeah not much else I can add but I echo the comments above.

09 Jul 2019 19:21:58
Bryan first half poor second halfmuch better, lot off work required going forward.
I like barisic great cross for jack also free kick excellent, he will do fine or make us a few quid.

09 Jul 2019 19:29:44
Just to confirm, my initial comment was made at half time, if anyone wants to disagree that Barîsîc is a liability then please feel free to reply. Also, my comment about Jones, he has no left foot, but gets played on the left of the park. 2nd half tav took set pieces which produced 2 goals. If I'm going to get slated for pointing out facts then what's the point. Overall a good performance, as I said early days, but for me Jordan Jones and Barîsîc are not Rangers class.

09 Jul 2019 19:33:14
I knew I'd take some stick after posting my initial post just after half time lol, Barîsîc did play well second half, produced a decent ball for Jack and his free kick was quality, but my view stays the same, he looks laboured going forward, looks for the back pass everytime and doesn't seem to have any understanding with Jones.

09 Jul 2019 19:33:27
Can i shout this CANDIEAS IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH. OJO WILL BE 1ST PICK IN THAT SPOT AND RIGHTLY SO. although opposition was poor can see he's class.

09 Jul 2019 19:47:16
Barasic will find his feet this season and be out 1st choice left back. Surely can't be croatia 1st choice LB and kept out team from flanagan or halliday haha.

09 Jul 2019 20:03:57

09 Jul 2019 20:10:10
Candieas isn't good enough. He started to get phased out tail end last season. If jones turns out poor Jamie murphy will slot in. Candieas can't cross the road. Ojo will play right. Candyman can slot in if injuries etc.

09 Jul 2019 20:26:20
Bryan, Stirling plays in the left for Man City and is right footed Silva on right and is left footed. Salah plays on the right for Liverpool and is left footed, Mane plays on the left and is right footed. modern football. In Gerrard we trust!

What Bryan isn’t understanding here is the tactics that we are deploying. As mentioned above, look at the way Liverpool set up (and if you haven’t noticed by now, surprise surprise, Gerrard is using the same set up) they play with a 433 rather than 451. The two supporting forwards play as inside left and right and as mentioned the one on the right is left footed, the one on the left, right footed. The idea is when in possession they drive inwards to either help over load the oppositions centre backs, shoot with their stronger foot, or draw the fullback in, thus creating space for our overlapping fullbacks.

Previously under warburton and Pedro we played 451 with wingers who went wide and threw deep crosses in to our loan striker which were easily dealt with by opposition centre backs. It is clear this is what Gerrard has been working towards. By the end of last season it was working well. This also allows us to play with 3 more solid midfielders and negates the need for an attacking midfielder to support the loan striker as much. This in turn makes us more solid in defence and hopefully will stop us leaking silly goals. It’s the exact tactics Liverpool use. and they just won the champions league doing so!

Brian I'm just a wee bit curious if u are on the wind up stating that barasic and Jones should be linking up like they have played together for years give them a bit more time.

09 Jul 2019 22:55:15
Thought barisic was excellent don't know what game u watched. Scored one, set up one n was up n down all game long. Reminded me of the barisic who played us last year, fingers crossed.

10 Jul 2019 00:07:07
Read gaffers interview and everything he says in article pretty spot don’t know about Ojo statement but what l saw we look pretty dam good a few tweaks here and there and couple of new faces we’re going to pretty hard to beat and play entertaining football.

10 Jul 2019 00:14:53
Bryan you will have a problem with hastie as well then as he is left footed and likes to play in the right.

1st competitive game and you are moaning already and we won 4-0 honestly what is wrong with people.

10 Jul 2019 01:26:43
aye barisic is rubbish. Just a clean sheet a goal and an assist. good one 😂.

10 Jul 2019 02:40:02
Are you actually greying about Borna’s set pieces in a game in which he stuck a free kick in the bag?

10 Jul 2019 02:54:28
Just want to take the time to credit Ger78 post. Very insightful mate, well played.
