Am expecting a big season from Ryan Kent and don't be surprised if he goes on to be player of the year.

Agree7 Disagree0

Like you Onewaltersmith, i would not be surprised in the least, if ryan kent was player of the year this season. Playing in his natural role,
there's not a shred of doubt that kenty has the quality to destroy teams and be player of the year. He's a talented player!

15 Jul 2020 13:32:49
Hopefully, you're right. There's definitely a player there and I reckon last year saw him suffer second season syndrome.

15 Jul 2020 14:44:11
I’d like SG to try him on the right wing. Think he would be more effective and would certainly get more assists if he can hit the bye line. Cuts inside into too many players all the time on the left.

15 Jul 2020 15:03:49
Baz the bear, I was saying that all last season, he has loads of talent/ trickery but when he's on the left the effect of it is lost when he has to stop and cut back in onto his right foot. I too hope he's given a place on the right.

15 Jul 2020 16:00:43
I really hope so guys because last season he looked way off what a player of his price tag should be. Tbh I always felt the fee was way too big but that's not Kents fault.

15 Jul 2020 17:05:00
Remember his first game back he got injured after 30 mins or so and was out for weeks. Not making excuses for him but it definitely could’ve had some sort of baring on his performances. Hopefully he can start the season fit and firing on all cylinders. He is definitely a confidence player!

15 Jul 2020 17:09:26
Beale and Gerrard like the guys to cut in on to their dominant foot, more an inside forward than out and out winger. That was the plan last season, may yet change this year! See the idea that we need wingers to stretch teams- especially when they sit with so many men back.

15 Jul 2020 17:22:16
You make good, valid points Baz the bear and scotty_dog, regarding the possibility of ryan kent switching wings to the right instead. It got me then thinking if that were to happen, i'd play jamie murphy on the left!

15 Jul 2020 18:42:16
For that to happen SG would need to change his tactics which is very doubtful IMHO but think he needs to.

15 Jul 2020 19:33:17
Expecting the striker to play for a full season.

15 Jul 2020 20:07:00
I envy your optimising boys. Out of curiosity, from a Rangers point of view where did you rate Kent’s season last years. From a Rangers point of view I have him behind Morelos, Defoe, Jack, Davis, McGregor, Tav, Borna, Goodson and Katic. So roughly our tenth best player. And Celtic have another 11 better than those.

But you all have Kent for player of the year before the season has even started?

For you information, Kent may have a lot of skill but he doesn’t have any game intelligence and is extremely predictable.

He must be a dream for opposition managers to come up against! Put 3 men on him and he runs straight into them, doesn’t have the intelligence to pass the ball and drag the players away with a fake run.

I thought Dorrans was the worst Rangers player I had seen come here with a big reputation - but if Kent doesn’t get his act together he will be taking that mantle.

He (like others) are in desperate need of good coaching.

15 Jul 2020 20:28:55
That should read 2 men. 3 men would be overkill!

15 Jul 2020 20:32:23
So if Kent attracts three men surely that leaves 2 men spare that would do something with that space if we had better players playing alongside Kent huh 🤔.

15 Jul 2020 20:54:55
It's called being positive zikos, you could try once in a while.
Kent was poor last season no doubt about that but for your information most folk on here remember how he played 2 seasons ago when he won young player of year.

15 Jul 2020 22:19:37
Zikos, ask that celtic right back lustig how good kent is mate. He's still having nightmares about Kent and didn't know where he was when he came up against kent! 👌.

15 Jul 2020 22:20:12
Gaz - exactly it would if the player had half a brain and didn’t keep on getting dispossessed!

Yeah I remember him getting young player of the year also. Did he get enough goals that’s season for a Rangers forward - NO. Did he get enough assists that’s season for a rangers forward - NO. A rangers forward should get double figures for at least one of those!

What’s your point other than he is going backwards in his development under SG?

15 Jul 2020 23:11:35
SGL - I want players to play at a high level for an entire season, not just a game here or there, whenever they feel like it. That’s not the Rangers way.

But far too many on here are happy with mediocrity and more and more are celebrating failure.

The fact is atm Kent is not consistent enough to be a starter, week in week out.

I like you hope he develops into something special. But I just can’t see that happening at our club, I don’t see any evidence to suggest that we have the staff that can take a raw talent and polish them into the finished article.

16 Jul 2020 06:22:45
Candeias wasn't good enough because he didn't score or assist enough goals. Kent has to do better as do all the forward players.
I don't think it's a coincidence that is the case with our set up.

4-3-3 is great against teams who also attack but not great when teams sit in and compact the last 3rd.
4-2-3-1 or 3-5-2 would be better in my opinion. Having said that, you've got to trust the management team.

16 Jul 2020 08:53:18
My point is Kent was in poor form for a lot of last season but he can/ could get back to the form when he won young player of year.
You've written him off before the season has started 🤔
Love all the positivity in all your posts though! 😉.

16 Jul 2020 13:40:59
I totally agree that wingers are best utilised when the opponents push the defence up to the halfway line and attack, this is why Kent’s best games last season were against Celtic and the Braga away game, 2 of our toughest games on paper and he flourished for that exact reason, I totally agree.
