  1. Rangers go four points clear with easy victory away in Dundee including three penalties! http://www.gersnetonline.co.uk/2010/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=402:dundee-utd-0-4-rangers-player-ratings-and-mom-poll&catid=1:articles&Itemid=67 :sd: The wee man looked sharp, hungry and confident for the first time in a while last night. He has to take this form into Sunday's game and, if he does, we will win. Also thought Lafferty had a fine, fine match last night. :spl:
  2. Rangers go back to the top of the SPL with hard fought win against St Mirren at Ibrox Stadium. http://www.gersnetonline.co.uk/2010/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=398:rangers-2-1-st-mirren-player-ratings-and-mom-poll&catid=35:analysis&Itemid=67 :nj: for me. Strange game on Saturday. We controlled the game easily enough but never really looked like scoring. We still need more from our midfield and full-backs to help out our attack. Not confident about tomorrow night unless we can change that.
  3. Rangers take the points despite ragged performance on dreadful pitch in Perth. http://www.gersnetonline.co.uk/2010/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=390:st-johnstone-v-rangers-player-ratings-and-mom-poll&catid=1:articles&Itemid=67 Crucial save at 1-0 won us the points as much as anything else last night. Nods of approval for Lafferty and Whittaker also!
  4. Rangers take the first silverware of the season with dominant display at Scotland's national stadium. http://www.gersnetonline.co.uk/2010/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=386:celtic-1-2-rangers-player-ratings-and-mom-poll&catid=35:analysis&Itemid=67 :sd: I said the other day we needed our midfield to show up if we were to win. And boy did they all play well with Davis showing us exactly why we rate him so much. In truth though, we could probably pick anyone and not disagree. :spl:
  5. Wasteful Rangers pay the price for missing chances amidst overly-defensive display at home to Dutch league leaders. http://www.gersnetonline.co.uk/2010/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=383:rangers-0-1-psv-player-ratings-and-mom-poll&catid=35:analysis&Itemid=67 :gw: Young winger did fall out of the game a bit easily at times but when he did get on the ball he looked dangerous while putting in some fine crosses. Must be considered for a more regular place in the team.
  6. Rangers reduce deficit to Celtic with laboured victory at home to average Killie outfit. http://www.gersnetonline.co.uk/2010/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=381:rangers-2-1-kilmarnock-player-ratings-and-mom-poll&catid=35:analysis&Itemid=67 Not a great range of players to choose from but whatever Weir did he did pretty well for the most part so I'll give him the award. Cap is doffed to Bougherra who worked extremely hard and Weiss who came on to create the winning goal. Dirty look is given to management team for such a defensive team and less than speedy response to gutless performance from many players.
  7. Rangers stumble past St Mirren in a results over performance afternoon in Paisley. http://www.gersnetonline.co.uk/2010/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=379:st-mirren-0-1-rangers-player-ratings-and-mom-poll&catid=35:analysis&Itemid=67 :kbartley: I thought most of our defence played quite well yesterday but Bartley's goal helped him win the award over the others.
  8. Rangers take advantage of Celtic slip up with routine home victory over mediocre Saints. http://www.gersnetonline.co.uk/2010/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=376:rangers-4-0-st-johnstone-player-ratings-and-mom-poll&catid=35:analysis&Itemid=67 :sd: I've been wanting to post the wee man's name for months as MotM so am delighted to do so this morning. OK he wasn't brilliant but he was much tidier in possession, worked hard off the ball and was a threat in attack. More please! Cap also doffed to Jelavic, Bougherra and Papac for doing well. :spl:
  9. Rangers progress into last 16 of Europa League and gain much needed morale ahead of SPL run-in. http://www.gersnetonline.co.uk/2010/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=373:sporting-2-2-rangers-player-ratings-and-mom-poll&catid=35:analysis&Itemid=67 :rf: Arguably culpable at Sporting 2nd goal the lad didn't let it affect him and provided the inspiration for both our goals while covering at the back when necessary.

    Didn't see Frankie posting his usual ratings thread, so either I've missed it or he was too busy drowning his scores under a pint. That all said, my scores for yesterday are thus: 4 Probably his worst display of the season, didn't look comfortable and was at fault for the first and third goals. :sw: 5 Struggled with Izaguerra but did manage to put in a decent cross or two and didn't hide. :mb: 4 Mediocre - wasn't able to dominate defence or make any runs like he normally does. 1 Quite possibly the worst display from a Ranger in the last 5 years. Age has finally caught up with him and he was an absolute shambles. :sp: 6 Our best player - not really saying much but he was heavily involved and tried to get the ball forward. :sn: 4 No joy at all and got an untimely injury. :me: 3 Poor touch and didn't pass at all properly. Anonymous. :kbartley: 3 Tried to put his imprint on the match early doors but managed to make the whole game harder for himself on a yellow. Passed him by completely. :sd: 4 After a promising start to the match he returned to his shell after the first goal and his dire run of form continued. :ehd: 5 Was the most hands on of our players - wasn't helped by rotten movement around him but was our most promising attacking outlet. :nj: 3 Lack of service and what little he got was meagre. Couldn't do anything with the scraps he was fed. Subs: :kl: 3 Quiet, no real impact. :dh: 3 An OF debut to forget.
  11. Rangers at last provide some confidence for their supporters with superb demolition of Steelmen at Ibrox. http://www.gersnetonline.co.uk/2010/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=368:rangers-6-0-motherwell-player-ratings-and-mom-poll&catid=35:analysis&Itemid=67 :nj: Obviously others had fine games as well (not least Weiss) but the big man really brings such quality to our attack. We'll miss him on Thursday but if we can support him properly at Parkhead on Sunday, we've nothing to fear from Celtic. Bring it on! :spl:
  12. Rangers move into first final of the season with hard fought victory over resilient Motherwell at Hampden. http://www.gersnetonline.co.uk/2010/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=365:rangers-2-1-motherwell-player-ratings-and-mom-poll&catid=35:analysis&Itemid=67 :me: Felt the big American was one of a very few Rangers players who was direct, strong and wanted to work hard to get result. Special mention for Neil Alexander who had a very good game considering he's not played in 3 months.
  13. Rangers return to winning ways with routine victory over sub-standard Hibernian at Easter Road. http://www.gersnetonline.co.uk/2010/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=364:hibernian-0-2-rangers-player-ratings-and-mom-poll&catid=35:analysis&Itemid=67 :mb: Thought the big man was immense last night and was as good as I've seen him for a long time. Also scored a fantastic opening goal!
  14. Wasteful Rangers are defeated by late Jambos sucker-punch in top of the table clash in Edinburgh. http://www.gersnetonline.co.uk/2010/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=361:hearts-1-0-rangers-player-ratings-and-mom-poll&catid=35:analysis&Itemid=67 :jn: The youngster was quite superb in the first half and I enjoyed seeing him add a more attacking virtue to his game. Was very unlucky not to score with thunderbolt but perhaps should have cut ball back to Whittaker before his other shot. Other than him, I felt a few players did well but we lost any threat we had after the break and I was disappointed the manager didn't go for two up front to stop Hearts from coming back into the game before they inevitably scored.
  15. http://www.gersnetonline.co.uk/2010/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=359:rangers-1-0-inverness-ct-player-ratings-and-mom-poll&catid=35:analysis&Itemid=67 Rangers obtain another vital three points with hard-fought win over Inverness Caley Thistle at Ibrox. Has looked pretty poor recently if I'm honest but had a good game on Tuesday night IMO. Made a number of crucial tackles and was also reliable in possession.
  16. Rangers brush aside under strength Hamilton on Saturday at stormy Ibrox Stadium. http://www.gersnetonline.co.uk/2010/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=357:rangers-4-0-hamilton-player-ratings-and-mom-poll&catid=35:analysis&Itemid=67 :vw: Little doubt about our man of the match with Weiss being superb in the first half before tiring after half-time. Jamie Ness was again impressive and I'm a bit happier with Whittaker and Davis' contributions after the last week. :spl:
  17. Rangers return to winning ways with improved performance and attitude at home to Killie in Scottish Cup 4th Round. http://www.gersnetonline.co.uk/2010/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=353:rangers-3-0-kilmarnock-player-ratings-and-mom-poll&catid=1:articles&Itemid=67 :kl: I doubt many of us will argue with that pick but I also thought Whittaker and McCulloch did quite well to support the play-makers. Good to see Naismith back but he really needs more help from Davis and others to improve our forward play. Weiss looked bright when he came on but consistency isn't his strong point unfortunately.
  18. A sloppy and lethargic Rangers performance gifts 3 points to our rivals at Ibrox on a day of remembrance. http://www.gersnetonline.co.uk/2010/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=350:rangers-0-2-celtic-player-ratings-and-mom-poll&catid=1:articles&Itemid=67 :jn: This young man was our best player on the day and looks extremely promising. Understandably he made the occasional mistake, but generally passed the ball with more composure than any of our other players.
  19. Wasteful Rangers regret missed chances and lethargic first half performance to drop points in Highlands. http://www.gersnetonline.co.uk/2010/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=350:inverness-ct-1-1-rangers-player-ratings-and-mom-poll&catid=35:analysis&Itemid=67 One of our players that consistently delivers a high standard every week - no matter the opposition. Honourable mentions to Beattie and Wylde who showed quality and hunger when they came on as subs. Both should start next week.
  20. Rangers end Champions League campaign with disappointing 1-1 draw away in Turkey. http://www.gersnetonline.co.uk/2010/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=348:bursaspor-1-1-rangers-player-ratings-and-mom-poll&catid=35:analysis&Itemid=67 :sn: for me though I felt no-one really stood out. Whittaker and Bougherra had good games but made too many mistakes to get the award IMO.
  21. Plucky Rangers go down to late penalty at home to well-disciplined Manchester United. http://www.gersnetonline.co.uk/2010/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=342:rangers-0-1-manchester-utd-player-ratings-and-mom-poll&catid=35:analysis&Itemid=67 :kb: for me...
  22. Rangers return to winning ways with routine victory against dreadful Aberdeen outfit. http://www.gersnetonline.co.uk/2010/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=336:rangers-2-0-aberdeen-player-ratings-and-mom-poll&catid=35:analysis&Itemid=67 :jf: Thought the wee man was our hungriest player and benefited from being just behind Miller in our 4-5-1 formation. The team played pretty well but no-one really stood out in my opinion.
  23. Despite best efforts of referee, Rangers re-assume SPL lead after comfortable victory against St Mirren. http://www.gersnetonline.co.uk/2010/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=334:st-mirren-1-3-rangers-player-ratings-and-mom-poll&catid=1:articles&Itemid=67 :kl: Big man has had a improved season so far this term and he brought a much needed urgency to our play yesterday.
  24. Rangers fail to perform in Spain as Valencia give lesson in possession football and chance-taking. http://www.gersnetonline.co.uk/2010/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=331:valencia-3-0-rangers-player-ratings-and-mom-poll&catid=1:articles&Itemid=67 Didn't do his reputation any harm with a string of great reaction saves but also looked less than convincing at first two goals. Not enough protection in any case.
  25. Calscot discusses exactly why recent attention placed on our referees is unfair and unhelpful. Is the standard of referees declining? With the latest string of refereeing controversies being analysed to death, the main countering argument to one clubââ?¬â?¢s paranoia that the establishment is out to get them, is that any decisions against them later shown to be wrong or "soft", are just a result of refereeing standards lowering over the years. This theory is supported by the evidence referees make just as many mistakes favouring Celtic as well as against their rivals who they allege are given too many favourable decisions. While this shows Celticââ?¬â?¢s delusions of persecution are obviously ludicrous, and putting aside any ââ?¬Å?white liesââ?¬Â for another discussion, I doubt there is actually much evidence that referees are any less able today than they were in the past. However, today there IS far more scrutiny with multiple cameras, slow motion, freeze frame and other modern technology, combined with the media changing from respectful reporting to a position of obsessing with highlighting and sensationalising every key decision as a new form of entertainment to increase ratings or circulation and so engage a bigger audience. There is plenty of evidence that refereeing is now a far more difficult job than it used to be with a myriad of new rules and edicts; a much faster game with fitter, faster players; no pass backs and multiple balls to get the play going immediately; combined with a far more cynical attitude by an increasing number of players with absolutely no sportsmanship or integrity. Referees are given far more education and training and have tougher qualification standards. They have to be fitter, more knowledgeable and give more consistent results while having their performance judged in every game. It's incredible that the club with the least integrity from fan to player to manager to chairman has the gall to question the honesty of the humble referee who is trying his best to do what is now approaching an impossible job. It's easy to focus on single decisions with a myriad of slow motion replays from a multitude of angles but that is not even close to how a referee views a game - literally or figuratively. He has one pair of eyes and has to see the game at full speed, from one angle and in full flow, without knowing when or what the incidents will be. He also has to use psychology in his decisions to control a game with 22 competitive men who usually cannot control themselves or their emotions and who often cheat or attempt to hurt the opposition given the opportunity. Sometimes a decision for a booking, sending off or abstaining from a card at all can be based on the game as a whole, and what reaction it will bring from the players to calm the match down and make them play more like the professional sportsmen they purport to be. Looking at such a decision in isolation is like analysing a line from a speech without any context. If referees are just "sh!te" then arenââ?¬â?¢t we all? Who has not been convinced about an incident when watching live and then changed your mind when you see the replay or stop motion? Who has missed an incident in the game completely because you were watching the ball? The foul on Papac by Stokes for example? The main cameraman missed it... The referee has to see everything that is happening - including right after he has to duck to avoid being hit by the ball. Sometimes things look different at full speed or from different angles and the referee has to make a decision instantly, first time. It's an incredibly difficult thing to do and I very much doubt the likes of Neil Lennon, Charlie Nicolas or anyone in the studio or press box could do a job which stands up to a similar technological scrutiny by a top referee. Even with the technology, opinions are divided and many of these "wrong" decisions are not clear cut. I still think it was technically a penalty for Broadfoot (even if not the most cut and dried) and see them given all the time - and softer ones have been given to Celtic. Seen at full speed and only once, there is no reason why a ref wouldn't give it, and to say he was incompetent is completely disingenuous. You can only give a penalty or wave play on, there is no in between, so when is a ââ?¬Å?softââ?¬Â decision correct or not? At worst a soft penalty is when there is enough of an infringement to suggest foul play but also some doubt as to whether it was enough for a penalty to be given. On these occasions, the referee has to make an instant call and use his interpretation of the rules and what he saw. By definition there is no real right and wrong for these decisions and we have to play the game with respect for referee or we have no game. What has happened now is that Celtic and their lackeys in the press have asserted adamantly and often enough that the referee was wrong and the decisionââ?¬â?¢s reputation as an injustice is now being taken for granted and stated as fact. The contrast for the past is that the refereesââ?¬â?¢ decisions were considered final and controversial decisions just stimulated debate. I feel it is a crime to create a witch-hunt of a referee by using technology he has no access to during the game - it's like lambasting someone for not seeing things perfectly from a distance when you are using a camera with a massive zoom lens. The only way to balance this up is to give the referees the same tools that are being used to judge their competence. As that will take a while to come to pass due to those prevaricating at FIFA and UEFA, at home it's imperative we resurrect the proper respect towards referees and protect them from undue and unfair pressure on them before, during and after the game, by heavily punishing clubs systematically involved in this practice, before all our top whistlers resign. We have to avert a situation which is currently threatening the integrity of our league.
