Does, deep down, Murray listen to the fans


Recommended Posts

Ok Murray has quite fairly taken a lot of criticism but thinking about our managerial hirings and "firings" it really does seem he listens to the fans.

 

When GS left SDM tried to keep him, and insisted it was the biggest mistake of his life.

The fans were also sorry to see him go and wanted him to say.

 

He appointed WS as manager which although wasn't the most exciting thing for the fans, it had continuity and after he won the treble and did well in Europe the fans were happy.

 

He got rid of WS when the fans weren't happy about Euro results despite being on very good term with him. We were spoiled with domestic success and gave WS a lot of criticism and most thought it was a good time for him to move on especially as the team was stagnating and WS looked a bit jaded with the job.

 

He then brought us the big name that we craved, DA, who looked like he could do well in Europe and the difference was night and day in that arena although we always looked like we just needed a couple more quality players to actually do something. That's what we craved and that's what SDM provided but unfortunately it was from borrowed money and he didn't keep a good eye on the finances.

 

DA was very successful to start but the more he didn't quite make it the more desperate he got before losing the dressing room.

 

After a barren season and things looking bleak we started to want rid of DA and lo and behold he was punted upstairs by SDM and replaced with what many fans wanted: A promising Scottish manager who knew all about Rangers. We really wanted a bigger name but we didn't realise the extend of the debt but he is still liked by many fans.

 

He was SDA's third manager to be instantly successful and the third manager to completely peter out and give us a barren season.

 

We became so dire that there was a clamour to replace him from the fans and although SDM backed him, to be fair it was only because he had already lined up his replacement but had to wait on him.

 

PLG was another dream ticket for the Rangers fans who lapped it up again, another masterstroke. The fact it didn't work out is more down to PLG than SDM and you can't blame the chairman for that choice.

 

But the fans reacted again and so did Murray, this time immediately and now he's bringing in his 5th dream ticket in a row. We all respect WS and believe he's improved as he's shown with Scotland and we love AMC and would like to see him as a future Rangers manager. We again want a Scottish influence who are Rangers men and we've got it.

 

So you can't fault SDM for getting rid when the fans wanted it and bringing in very popular choices.

 

It looks like the fans do have power after all, or maybe DM is actually a bit of a fan too, or perhaps he just thinks the same as us, or alternatively he wants to be seen as some kind of hero but spoils it all with his bullshit, bad chairmanship in other ways like not allowing fan representation on the board, and many other faults.

I was wondering who SDM was when you wrote in another thread, now i know, lol.

 

Yeah i pretty much agree with what you're saying.

 

I dont think as many fans as you say were so keen on Eck, not anyone i spoke to anyway at that time. But by the end of the first season (which we knew the league was out of reach) getting the other trophies, the doubters warmed to him.

In the end he was more sucessful than not, what with having not alot of money to play with.

In hindsight, he should have left a season earlier, but i still admire the guy.
