[FT] Rangers 2 (Balogun 18; Roofe 30) - 0 Brondby

Recommended Posts

IMHO, Rangers managers should be able to change players and tactics when either fails. We persist far too long with the same system and same under-performing players, not least with favourites like Kent, Tavernier or Morelos. Previous laurels are for reference and history books, in the here and now we need players who are up for it. Waiting for Kent`s magical moment, that one or two good crosses from Tav or Morelos killer-instinct to return is nothing e.g. Sir Walter would have done as long as we do these days. And it costs us.

Huge game tonight, and it is absolutely a must win for us. I was glad to hear SG agree with this assessment in the pre-match presser yesterday. Defeat and we are out, a draw and we are going to struggle to come 3rd and drop into the diddier diddy cup, whereas a win puts us right in the mix for qualification in top 2 of our group and sets us up for the 3 return fixtures, albeit with 2 of the 3 away from home.


Above all else I would love to see a 90 minute performance of a standard similar to last season at this time of year. To be in mid-October and not have played a complete game and hit any consistency of performance is more than a little worrying, no matter what the domestic league table shows.


Just a question I was wondering recently for the stattos among us (you know who you are!) At this time last year we were bombarded weekly with tales of XG ratings and how well we were doing. I would be interested to see our XG ratings in recent games, where we are having 25-30 shots at goal in 90 minutes, with more than a few really good chances but only scoring 1.5 goals per game in league games. Anyone compare our stats in this between this year and last?

The manager putting his faith in his experienced players for tonight's big game. Big performances needed from his captains and the club's record European goal-scorer. Excited for kick-off!
