For all the Kent critics, watch the run and cross for Aribo's goal.
He has to get away from not 1, not 2 but THREE Hamilton players!
And for all the Aribo haters. Watch the class finish in the same move. 👍.

Can't argue with anything in your post there Agent Ghost.

Both are quality players in tight situations, those who are criticising have their opinion, but, I'll take Steven Gerrard's opinion over theirs.

i’m not an aribo hater, far from it but i don’t think we’ll win league with him in the team irvger he just doesn’t do enough for me

only my opinion, which i’ll be absl delighted to be proven wrong but we don't dominate games enough and at times get bullied

i’d prefer hagi up top with kent either side of fredo with arfield jack and davis in midfield.

Aribo has 7 goals so far this season and is probably going to finish the season with double figures. I know he has played in the front 3 out on the right but he is a central midfielder and its great to have goals coming from midfield. He is an absolute class footballer but sometimes the rough and tumble of the SPL sees him drift out of games. He will toughen up and he will be a vital part of our success going forward. He will certainly make us a lot of money when he leaves. Kent is a great player as well. I didn't see the game on Saturday and when I managed to watch the highlights last night I thought he was on fire. i'm aware that highlights don't paint the whole picture but he laid a few chances on including Aribos goal and had a few decent efforts at goal. Judging by the comments that some posted during the game on Saturday you'd have though he was having a nightmare.

I like to think i'm respectful of everyones opinion but some people are unwilling to give praise where praise is due if it goes against their already formulated opinion.

Kent and Aribo are certainly among Rangers 5 best players at the moment. that's my opinion.

Kent is undoubtedly a class act, but, as with most wingers they will have off days or just be a bit off in spells, Davie Cooper being a point in case. Aribo has shown enough to me to see that he is going to be a top player. He still needs to sharpen up a wee bit as the sheer speed and ferocity of the game up here doesn't allow any kind of dalliance on the ball. When he is really in the mood some of his touches are sublime and the finish for his goal was sheer class. It is very difficult to take the ball coming across you on your wrong foot and guide it so accurately into the corner. Also thought Kamara was very good after two or three poor games for him. I think we also miss Jack. Hopefully be back very soon.

I don’t know why anyone’s doubting kent, best in the league at his position. Defenders are frightened of him. Aribo is good just needs to do things a little faster as he slows things down sometimes. It ll come though.

I was at the match. Kent and Aribo were our best two players, and Davis was so good when he came on. The thing the haters of Kent and Aribo don't get (or don't want to) is that they attract opposition defenders to them, creating space for others. Most of their good work doesn't show up in stats like 'assists' as they make the pass or the move or the run that leads to the 'assist'. Of course, many on here would rather we signed hammer throwers and thugs than proper footballers.

It was indeed a lovely run from Kent to set up Aribo, I just wish he would do it more often instead of cutting back and inside. He certainly has the speed/ ability to go outside defenders and skin them, maybe its a confidence thing, but he's got the tools to do it! I suppose I'm from the "old school" who loved to see wingers flying past full backs!

Over to you swagman.

What about me? Kent has bags of ability, not denying that, but he doesn’t score or assist enough. I don’t fully blame him for that though, not sure whether it is our formation or what, but he doesn’t take his man on, try a killer pass/ cross or shoot enough. 99% of the time when he gets the ball he just cuts inside and passes it back to the midfield. My frustration with him is that he clearly has the ability to do more than he does. I don’t understand why I seem to be the only one who remembers what Rangers standards are? One 8 out of 10 performance every 6 or 7 games doesn’t excuse 5 and 6 out of 10 performances the rest of the time.

I think you are are basing Rangers standards from our past when the team was made up mainly of stars. I agree we could be playing a lot better. Do you ever think for a minute that Kent is hesitating when trying things due to the constant groans and howls from the stands when he makes a mistake. 1 thing for sure is he never hides and as for joe aribo a blind man can see the talent the boy has. I feel he is just taking a bit of time to adjust to our game but will come good. People slate the UB but at least they have the players backs no matter what. That was a very constructive post from you, 1 of your better ones without being on the same few players case all of the time.

I want to make something clear - I NEVER get on the player’s backs at the game. In fact, I’m always here defending the whipping boys like Halliday who give 100%. My only issue is ever with players who I don’t think are giving as much as they can, but again I only vent on here, I only ever support positively at the game.
