Expectations? Standards?
I know this site is all about opinions.
But when did some on here just think Rangers should turn up and teams are going to hand us the 3 points?
I'm fortunate enough to have been around to have enjoyed all off our own 9IAR.
I'm also unfortunately old enough to have been around before the Souness revolution.
As fans we take the good with the bad over the years.
We don't spit the dummy out over one poor display to our rivals for the title in the first month of the season!
Some are questioning the manager's future after 5 league games!
Some are saying we should forget his achievements in guiding us into the Europa league groups for the 2nd year in a row.
Some are conveniently forgetting we played Celtic off the park twice at Ibrox last season.
He isn't above criticism for the poor performance against Celtic. But they are nothing special.
The hysteria from some on here that are predicting Celtic are going to walk to 9IAR because Gerrard is in charge and we don't have a left back, another striker and a number 10 to break teams down is way over the top in my opinion.
Especially where we have come from in the last few years.
Especially since we were seen as a soft touch before Gerrard took over.
Last season was a learning curve for Gerrard.
This season? I think we can already see the fighting spirit / team bond / never say die attitude.
We played and won until the final whistle and came back from a goal down.
It brings me back to Expectations? Standards?
As a Rangers fan, I believe we've come through the most difficult period in our history on the playing side and that is down to Gerrard raising the Expectations of us the supporters to the point where the Celtic defeat hurt more than others.
He's got us believing again. The team is a joy to watch at times. It's not his fault ( or is it? ) the opposition now treat us with respect and put men behind the ball.
This in turn means the players / manager didn't hit the Standards expected of Rangers players in that same game. Should that one game define the season? Definitely not.
The result was a major disappointment but we are only 5 games into the season.
Should we be contemplating or even be discussing changing the manager? NO!
For the first time in a while the team are all together.
Let's give them the backing they deserve.
In Gerrard We Trust!
Let's Go!

@snell - better to go long winded. That way people may get fed up half way through and just agree with you anyway! 😂👍.

16 Sep 2019 13:53:39
Probably the most sensible post I’ve ever read on here. 100% with you on that.

16 Sep 2019 13:59:21
I am of a similar age Let’s Go, couldn’t agree more with your original post. Although I did stop for a coffee halfway through! 😜.

Long winded post. I like SG and want him to do well. However. I am sick of him moaning about stupid things. Against Celtic, the team he put out was terrible. On Saturday we should have been 2 down. Firstly down to Arfield and almost Halliday. Now. People know my feelings on Halliday. he's not good enough and SHOULD not be in the team. I am also old to know what the team has came through. Do I see progress in SG team? Yes. But If he doesn't win the title this season I think he can't be trusted for next season. That my opinion. he's been backed by the board. More than any other manager in recent times. In the summer we bought too many midfielders and should have bought another striker. We should have also bought another LB. something is wrong there. Europe is another free hit but we need to win the league this season. Hers hoping!
One more thing. We need to blend is more youngsters. These young guys are not getting a chance.

Good post 55 long though i shaved twice reading it :)

16 Sep 2019 19:43:00
@as1974 - should've, could've but we weren't 2 down.
Another one playing the if, buts and maybes card.
As for blending youth. When? Plenty on here saying we need to win silverware this season so that rules out both cups. Maybe if we open up a 20+ lead at the top of the table he can play some of the development squad? 😉😆.

16 Sep 2019 19:57:35
Your right but we need to look at both negatives and positives and not to have tunnel vision.
I meant youth as in maybe 1 or 2. Not talking 5 or 6. For example LB. unearth a gem. I know we need to win silverware. I want and hope SG does well. We need to look at him as a manager and not the footballer he was. I know he's got a lot to learn but going back to the Celtic game. Totally baffled me and thousand others.

Anyone ever noticed if you spell bill leckies name backwards its leckie bill 🙄.

My spelling is terrible I get it as wee Fanny! 😂.

It doesn't matter where we have been, its all about where we are going. I think a lot of people are frustrated with gerrard because of his formation, team selection and tactics against celtic particularly when he knows already how to play against celtic but did the complete opposite.

I think its over the top to want him sacked. I don't think aribo or ojo improve our starting 11 based on what we have seen so far. The game passed by both on saturday. Ojo did play the pass for barker's goal. And coop you can't have a go at anyone for wanting mcinnes when you wanted billy davies.
