  1. I’m struggling to understand the issue they think fans have with the recent court decision. If they think they only need to be reassured that they’ll still be able to purchase this seasons replica kits then they have massively underestimated the fans concerns. I just hope they have a plan b, because it sounds like they have gambled on the £1m penalty being the worst case scenario. I actually don’t care that much if I’m buying merchandise from SD or Elite or whomever else, as long as the club is getting the best deal. I would prefer it not to be SD obviously, but I’d rather that and the club didn’t have to pay penalties of £1m (or possibly much more + legal costs). I think they need to engage the fans on this. If SD is the best deal on the table (or equal best) the fans would not boycott them...and perhaps the club think we would....or am I wide of the mark?
  2. I would love for Defoe to score against them this weekend, maybe even more so than Alfredo. Defoe doesn’t deserve to be dropped and I’d really like to see him have a full 70-80 mins to see if we can continue the momentum and success our new shape has brought. There’s still doubt ( from many) about Defoe’s ability to replace Alfie if he does go and I would like him to prove once and for all that he (and our tighter forward line) works. With Gerrard not giving anything away in the press conference, I suspect he’ll stick with Defoe and bring on Alfie with 20 mins to go.
  3. And the goal chopped off for offside that was onside....yes the referee did have an influence - it should have been 3-0. I also disagree that 2nd penalty was not. It surely was, the way games are reffed means you have to go down and exaggerate the incident to get anything! Should Katic be ashamed as per Thomson, McInnes have said? No chance, he was doing his job. I don’t recall the same levied at Brown when Morelos and Kent caught him with their handbags, that resulted in a combined 6 game ban.
  4. Dire second half, we stopped doing the things we did well in the first half. We should have lost that in the end, crazy defending. What was Candeias thinking about, he should have been covering Tav with nobody with 3 yards of Kamberi, it was criminal. What was with Candeias after he scored, didn't want anyone celebrating with him? Did look like Tav was having go at him for it. We have to beat Aberdeen next week or its just unthinkable.
  5. That’s football mate. It’s a funny old game, and to be honest it wouldn’t exist if it was predictable. Gotta love it for that.
  6. It’s vitally important and whilst we have the chance to get through to the KO stage, I’d say it’s a priority (or equally as important I should say). It puts us in the spotlight, brings much needed money, attracts better players and gives our team critical experience - so we need to keep it going. Of course I would pick winning 55 this season over a continued run in Europe, but if I had to pick actually wining the Europa League over 55 this season, I would go with Europe. We will win the league again - and soon hopefully - but a European trophy comes around every hundred or so years. Anwway enjoy your day, I hope we put on a performance for you, win, lose or draw.
  7. Read into what you may, but I’m a fan of VAR and if we over contributed to the funding of it, I wouldn’t complain. I would think it would benefit us more than most since we create the most chances, have the most decisions going against us than for us. It would perhaps have lost us 2 points vs Hearts, but would have netted out in our favor, points wise, this season considering the incorrect disallowed goals and sendings off we’ve had. Don't want to tempt fate, but if we win on Thursday we’ll get a first taste of it in the knock out stages, I believe. I also think it’s quite exciting/entertaining and enjoyed how it worked during the WC.
  8. First off, excellent game preview Pete! You’re punching above your weight there. Sunday should be straight forward enough with or without Moreloff. We’ll miss Arfield again, but I think Kent will be back and should provide the pace and energy that’s been missing since he’s been out. He had just come into his game before he was injured and I’m hoping he’ll resume where he left off. I’m trying desperately to forget Wednesday, I thought it was our worst performance of the season so far, but I’m pretty certain we’ll bounce back with a convincing win up in Dundee. A chance also for big Laff to show us why he was brought back and an opportunity to link up with Kent operating on the left could provide a new option for us if it works. 3 points, whichever way it presents itself, is all I want. Well...actually.....I would also like a good result for the new top team on Saturday, if I can have both.
  9. Good point about Alfie’s booking today. I never thought about it until you mentioned it, but wonder if that was intended (instructed by management) and therefore why he started on the bench.
  10. The physical store is not always about it’s own sales, it acts as advertising and opportunity to see and touch the merchandise and try on the shirts etc. It will also help increase online sales as the shop acts as a reminder and prompt to purchase. I think we need a Rangers store outside of Ibrox to be our showcase as many fans may never get to the superstore at Ibrox if they don’t get to games very often.
  11. Brilliant listen as usual, well done guys!
  12. Not a great game of football today. That was Hamilton’s best performance of the season, they really upped their game against us, no surprise. The pitch also played it’s part although no excuses - we need to learn how to adapt our high pressing game on this type of surface. Although not as bad as Livingstone's pitch , it was till bad. Agree with JFK that we managed to raise our game to win the match but why it takes a scare like that is something Gerrard needs to fathom out. I personally think players are apprehensive on the surface - similar to the Livi game we weren’t prepared to go for 50:50 balls to win the ball back after losing it and that’s what’s been really effective for us. However, I’ll take the 3 points and glad to get the away game monkey off our backs. I though Ejaria, Rossiter and Kent (class finish) were pretty solid, Alfredo continues to be so important for us and is again involved in all of our goals today and you have to give it to Tav who was ice cool when it mattered. And no more of those plastic pitches for a while, TF!
