Currently i think our best Starting XI available is:





all players fit and healthy then Katic comes back in for Helander, outside of that our first XI isn't the problem in my opinion. The squad isn't strong enough to compete on all fronts for the duration of a season. Yes we have back up in every area but of those who is actually good enough? Davis, Arfield, Defoe is about it for me, obviously there is young boys in there like Patterson and Bassey whom will hopefully be good players but are unproven.

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree apart from Aribo, He was dropped from the left midfield position as he was finding it difficult to take on the tactical information. Gerrard/ Beale put him further forward which clashes with the better players in the line up. Aribo is a conundrum for me. He needs to work on his ball winning, tackling and heading, for a big lad I've never seen him win a second ball header. Hopefully he can kick on the season and make that left mid position his to loose. I would like us to play more like in the Braga away game, very disciplined, organised and lethal on the break. If we continue with gunghoe tactics against the SPL diddies we will have more silly goals conceded in the 10th and 80th minutes and points dropped.

Arfield in the middle for me. Not convinced by Aribo.

15 Jul 2020 12:46:26
Need 4 signings to this group or its not even a close 2nd its a distance 2nd.

15 Jul 2020 13:01:47
We won’t place a 4231 formation we will play a 433.

I wouldn’t have Jones in my team other than pace I don’t think he offers much. in domestic games we are constantly playing against 10 at the back and one player sitting at the half way line. Players like Arfield, Davis Kamara and Aribo are fat better than Jones just on the ability to pass and chip in the odd goal. Unfortunately the days of the flying winger to cross the ball to the lumbering forward are done until teams start coming out. That’s why in Europe players like Middleton Jones even Ojo ( on the odd occasion ) actually worked as we played teams who attacked. Other than that I would agree that it’s probably our best 11. Kent differs from Jones as he doesn’t actually run up the wing he prefers to showboat and come inside allowing barisic to move upfield and put the ball in and not just to the forward as he has the ability to pick out a player. But that’s my opinion and I’m not the manager ha ha.

Comes back in? Makes too many mistakes and always gets dropped. The Fridge looks like the best bet.

15 Jul 2020 13:17:08
Living on a mystery planet where Jones is in our best 11.
Barely played at all last seaon and would be way down the list for me.

15 Jul 2020 13:27:25
Would rather throw in an unproven player at RB, seen quite enough.

15 Jul 2020 13:35:58
Jones wouldn't be near the rangers starting 11 for me. I agree with DOIGER, that scotty arfield would always be in my starting 11.Arfield makes very clever runs and always working extremely hard without the ball and always looking to time/ make those terrific runs beyond our striker. Steven davis will have his games chosen carefully for him, by gerrard. I think davo will be kept fresh for our so called bigger games! Jermain defoe i honestly think will be very important making a scoring impact, coming from the bench in most league games.

15 Jul 2020 13:36:24
Aribo out Arfield in. Need a RB CM RW/ RF and a TM. All must be established first team starters ideally with leadership qualities. 👍.

15 Jul 2020 13:38:26
Jones is no good and aribo still has a lot to prove for me, we need to sign 4 players that improve our starting 11, a CB, CDM RW and CF we don’t need any more squad players we need guys that with make current starters into squad players!

15 Jul 2020 13:46:57
Would have murphy in the lineup instead of jones.
Need a big dominating CM and RB and RW.
Aribo hasn't settled properly but the goal he scored for against brasil was awesome.
How many players have celtic signed
That take a couple of seasons before
They start to really produce.
Biggest issue for rangers is not. blooding the youngsters enough.

15 Jul 2020 13:56:33
Looking at last season we conceded the same as Celtic and our strikers totalled about the same number of goals. Regular goals from midfield is the difference. Kent got 7 last year, could def push for many more, hopefully Hagi playing central can bring some in, airfield chips in too.

A proven rw who will get 10+ goals is most important signing needed this summer for me.

15 Jul 2020 15:46:54
I wouldn't have Jones anywhere near the team and while I would love Aribo to prove me wrong I reckon he is currently no more than a squad player. What worries me is that along with the new lad from Leicester this is probably our best players but we still don't have a proper holding midfield player with true quality at the club to sit alongside Jack and we don't have a right sided attacking midfield player unless we move Kent to that role in which case we need a left sided player. We have no cover at right back, in midfield Davis is in the twilight of his career and Kamara is as timid as a mouse and from an attacking perspective we only have Defoe as cover, Arfield as an option in midfield and that is about it. It simply emphasises the need for at least a quality holding midfield player, a quality striker and a quality attacking midfield player already to walk into the starting eleven plus a quality right back even if it is as backup. A squad and a first sixteen or seventeen is going to be fundamental next season given the way the games are likely to be played!

Murphy over Jones with jones coming on the last 20 with his blistering pace.

15 Jul 2020 20:17:28
Attacking 3-5-2 for me with the central CB advancing into Def Mid when in possession.


Goldson Edmundson Helander

Tavernier Arfield Davis Jack Barasic

Morelos Cosgrove

That’s leaves us a bit light in defence but plenty of options in midfield with McCrorie, Doherty, Kent, Aribo, Hagi etc to bring into the fold when required. Maybe sacrifice Arfield for Hagi when a team is camped in. I would also bring in Dykes to compete with Defoe for a starting position.

15 Jul 2020 22:58:01
Kent and hagi on the bench? Wow zikos just wow👍.

15 Jul 2020 23:00:50
zikos - you would have 14 million pounds worth of players on the bench in Haji, Kent and Aribo.

16 Jul 2020 08:30:31
Definitely Kent in the bench, he flatters today deceive tbh. Over a season contributes very little. Not a single assist from a winger/ forward - Actually quite unbelievable.

Hagi I would certainly play more, but in a 3-5-2, he would play as the most forward of the 3 central midfielders or as a deep lying forward. As I said for teams camped in their own half, I would replace Arfield with Hagi for that bit more creativity.

Personally the price tag shouldn’t guarantee then a place in the starting 11.

16 Jul 2020 11:54:32
There are arguments for Murphy instead of Jones for sure, i just think he was injured most of the season and if we can get him playing the way he was at killie coming in off the side he will cause teams a lot of trouble, same way Kent does it.

As for Aribo who seems to be a hit or a miss within the fan base, give him time to settle in and he will be our best player by a long way in my opinion. He has came from Charlton with a manager who clearly has no ambitions for any of his players as he said he would be better going to another championship team than come to Rangers and is currently trying to steer Lyle Taylor away from Scotland also, he was coming onto a game at the tail end of the season and i think we will get a massive season out of him.

KJA9.a 4-2-3-1 and 4-3-3 are effectively the same formation, we will have 2 midfielders (Jack and Aribo for me) who will take the ball from the back and find out impact players, then Hagi will play a lot further forward to link with the striker, that's assuming SG doesn't stick him out on the right hand side again.
