Nobody really expects us to win the league this season did they? It is great that the new signings have come in but they will need time to bed in and have barely played a game for us yet. Also, surely the fact that players like Dorrans, Jack, McCrorie Alves, Wallace and Miller are injured means something?

A midfield in whatever format containing Jack, Dorrans, Murphy, Docherty and McCrorie would be much stronger? I still think 2nd is achievable and as has proved again, Septic will keep dropping points. If Morelos is going to sulk, get rid and recall Hardie from loan.


1.) 05 Feb 2018 23:22:42
I my opinion McCrorie is much more suited to being a centre half. He was just used in midfield to plug a gap.

2.) 06 Feb 2018 08:14:51
Agree follow follow I'd like to see mcrorie and Martin at centre half and rossiter and docherty in midfield with Dorrans Murphy and candias! Need a striker as Alfredo is going and kenny is past it

3.) 06 Feb 2018 13:47:38
We forgetting Sean Goss he's the best player we have
brought in this Jan so far. Goss Rossiter and docherty in the middle

4.) 10 Feb 2018 15:19:24
Would like to c Bates keeping his spot in the defence to be honest the boy is turning into a real player his positioning is brilliant and his passing is getting better



25 Jan 2018 12:15:12
Docherty medical was due at 10.30 today. Haven't heard anymore. Also, looks like Alves will stay as the Italian club are to sign Sagna instead. Worth keeping him until the end of the season if he stays fit.


1.) 25 Jan 2018 13:51:37
Just seen a video of him driving through the gates on Twitter Doiger, would expect the Announcement and the club photos done by tonight!

2.) 25 Jan 2018 14:47:06
Great news Wee Bear. I'm really excited about the January signings!

3.) 25 Jan 2018 17:23:06
Signing imminent at 1720
Completed Medical, agreed terms just doing some media work for the club then set to be unveiled around 6pm

4.) 25 Jan 2018 18:31:16
Why have we gave in to such a high sell on clause for Docherty? after all £680,000 is more than a fair price for a 21 year old player who hasn't really done much in the game or international game yet, don't get me wrong i am excited by this transfer but Sell ons are normally 10% or 20% of any future transfer fee so Why have we agreed to 25% to me that's crazy agreeing to a quarter of any future transfer, surely we could of said 15% max and even in the end agreed to 20% and even that is a lot but Would have been better and more fair, Murty or DOF must want Docherty bad cause we told other Scottish clubs were to go when they tried playing hard ball with fees example Hearts the Sheep to name a few, but I would rather give Hamilton the money for a good player than the likes of Hearts and the sheep for the same player any day of the week, Give them Nothing!

5.) 25 Jan 2018 18:38:23
Your timing is off on Docherty deal, TheGlasgowranger, you sure you weren't just guessing with your info? or if you weren't guessing can i ask where your info came from and what source? plz.

6.) 25 Jan 2018 21:17:11
Now confirmed on official website!

7.) 25 Jan 2018 22:09:42
This has been our most successful January transfer to date in recent years



24 Jan 2018 09:48:42
Scottish Sun reports Docherty signing today after a medical. Good news given the long-term injuries to Dorrans, Wallace and now Jack - apparently Jack might not play again this season? Murty should throw Goss, Murphy and Docherty straight into the team with Cummings and el Buffalo up-front.


1.) 24 Jan 2018 10:40:28
Docherty won't play tonight if he's only completing his deal today lol, he's probably not even spoken to any of our team yet let alone trained with them.

2.) 24 Jan 2018 10:44:09
Could be an advantage then CMRFC, lol



07 Jan 2018 06:23:18
Scottish Sun confirm today that Murphy has signed on loan.


1.) 07 Jan 2018 07:31:31
I think now we need a striker in because we can’t go the rest of the season with Morelos up front because he isn’t the answer. A good guy to have on the bench but that’s it. He lacks pace and can’t beat a man and his finishing a lot of the times is woeful. If we can get the 5-10 million for him from villa that a lot of the folk on here were debating about a couple of months ago then even better.

2.) 07 Jan 2018 07:45:50
Eh? You don't rate Morelos, fair enough but you think he's worth £5-£10m but only a squad player, subby? Morelos is our best striker, our top scorer, in his first season, in a new country. He's played up on his own for large parts of the season without a recognized number 10 behind him. He's been one of the few successful summer signs.
Who do you think we should replace him with Rick?

3.) 07 Jan 2018 07:49:41
He is the top goal scorer in the league and an excellent young talent but you say he’s rubbish but you want 10million for him?

4.) 07 Jan 2018 08:42:06
He's still just a young boy and you need to remember he has played half a season in Finland before he came to us. Add that to the fact he's up front on his own almost all of the time, he's bound to be tired at times and go off the boil! Expect more to come from him

5.) 07 Jan 2018 08:53:33
How can you possibly say you don’t rate the guy but want 5-10 mill for him? He’s played up top himself most of the season he doesn’t give defenders a minutes peace, the laddie can finish. Granted he had a poor day in front of goal against Celtic but I would be more concerned if he wasn’t getting any chances, I agree that we need another striker but to play WITH him not in place of him. Desperately need a creative midfielder.

6.) 07 Jan 2018 08:56:25
Great bit if business, relies on Murphy proving he is good enough to wear the badge before we buy him like it should be. Regarding us being skint and relying on director loans, weren’t a lot of people complaining that King hasn’t invested 30mill Now that he providing this through loans all of a sudden the focus of the media is that we are skint? Was always the plan from king, invest until we are back playing consistently in Europe and then we will be self funded. Am quite happy how the board are running things financially.

7.) 07 Jan 2018 09:49:19
Full of negativity Rick. Cheer up mate it’s not that bad 😂

8.) 07 Jan 2018 10:28:59
I think yous were lost with my sarcasm. Of course I don’t think he’s worth that and was ridiculed at the time for saying he’s not even worth £2m when yous were all debating whether we should sell him or not if we get an offer between £5m-£10m from Aston Villa who aparantly were interested at the time which I doubt and a few even said nothing less than £8m would be acceptable! Comical.

9.) 07 Jan 2018 10:44:22
Rick so he is a bench player, our bench players are now worth £5-10 mill so does that mean our other first team regulars will be worth £30-40 mill you could buy the whole team for under £10 mill but your judgement of Morelos is strange he is our top scorer the leagues top scorer he has played the loan striker Roll his holding up of the ball to allow other players forward is great work rate great I think with someone up there with him you will see just how good he can become

10.) 07 Jan 2018 12:22:26
For me Morelos is proving to be Superb value for £1M, one of only a handful of successful signings that we’ve made in the last 6 years. He will only improve in the years to come and while he may never be a £10M striker he will be great in our league and if we can get him better service from Murphy etc. then he may hit 30 goals this season. I do agree with Rick W that we need a striker in this window as well, we shouldn’t be going into games vs the bottom 6 without 2 up top!

11.) 07 Jan 2018 12:28:18
Morelos is still a work in progress, right now we need a more experienced striker. Morelos had a poor game against Celtic and msde some basic errors, we need someone who csn do it in the bigger games!

12.) 07 Jan 2018 14:10:15
Well said blueberry. Worth 5-10 million but he should be on bench, some people talk some u know what. Get a grip.

13.) 07 Jan 2018 14:13:03
10 million his middle name must be dembelle

14.) 08 Jan 2018 00:33:28
The best natural and explosive finisher at the club is the boy Dodoo. Disappointed does not appear to be on plane for Florida.



04 Jan 2018 12:08:01
Scottish Sun reporting Murphy may well fly up today for a medical.


1.) 04 Jan 2018 12:35:21
I seen this article too. Where they refer to Murty as "caretaker" boss.

So disrespectful

2.) 04 Jan 2018 14:44:13
Jamie Murphy will have a medical tonight, fee agreed, murty wants him on the plane at the weekend. Also trying to push through deals for Martin and 1 other before the trip.

3.) 04 Jan 2018 14:50:07
Having medical now according to bbc. Should be a good signing. Shows a bit of intent, hopefully not the last one in.

4.) 04 Jan 2018 14:40:37
BBC website reporting Murphy having medical now

5.) 04 Jan 2018 15:46:42
Simply a brilliant transfer nothing else to say.

6.) 04 Jan 2018 17:33:15
STV reported that the deal could be completed in time for team flying out tomorrow.

A fine win for our under 17s against Septic under 17s, winning 4-2. A hat=trick for Josh McPake. Anyone seen this young lad play? With our under 20s playing well doesn't this all sound good for the future?


1.) 15 Mar 2018 14:34:14
Sure does doiger and to let’s be honest it’s been a breath of fresh air what the young lads have been doing instead of the standard youth leagues in Scotland.



12 Mar 2018 11:34:26
We need to remember that we have Dorrans, Jack, Wallace, McCrorie and (maybe! ) Rossiter to come back. If even Dorrans and McCrorie were playing yesterday we'd have won. I also wonder what effect wee Holt would have had if he'd played yesterday. I'd let Alves go and get rid of Cardoso, Herrera, et al.


1.) 12 Mar 2018 13:20:22
They had plenty of players missing too though and players that have been the difference in previous old firm matches

2.) 12 Mar 2018 13:47:49
Why do people keep saying we have Wallace to come back.

There is no place in the team for him bar the bench as cover for Elton



12 Mar 2018 09:03:59
Morning Bears. Sore head today but I think far too many of us were getting ahead of ourselves before this match, myself included. Yes, we won six games on the trot but this included Fraserburgh, Falkirk and Hamilton. I've said this before but the amount of chances Morelos misses is ridiculous. We could/ should have won and how Septic's scorer of their third goal was given the space to score I'll never know. A lesson learned but we are getting much closer to them. Jury's out on Murty as long-term manager and I would have started Cummings yesterday after his hat-trick last week. We'll finish 2nd OK and the cup is still a real possibility.


1.) 12 Mar 2018 10:41:29
You say our 6 game win streak is nothing as includes falkirk, but then say Cummings should start as he scored a hat-trick against them?

2.) 12 Mar 2018 10:57:25
Yes Marco C, that's right because you should pick form players no matter who they are scoring goals against.

3.) 12 Mar 2018 17:36:42
The better side won on the day though I don’t think either side played to there full potential.
Goss had his least influential game since he joined on loan. Tav was also anonymous most of the game. It looked liked we were trying to hit them on the break. We gave them far too much space in the middle of the park.
Totally agree about the Buffalo - he had 2 glorious chances to score.
Anyway on to the semi final and the chance for the players to redeem themselves.



03 Mar 2018 10:48:02
Murty talking about winning all of our remaining games. That's 9 games and 27 points, including 2 against Celtic. That would give us 85 points. If Celtic were to win all of their remaining games (8 out of 10 if we beat them twice) they'd have 88 points. We are the form team and I can't see them winning all the other 8 games. A long shot maybe but not as much of a long shot as it was a few weeks ago. One thing is for sure and that is we are back and should secure 2nd by a single figure points margin. The Scottish Cup would do just fine in the meantime!


1.) 03 Mar 2018 11:47:19
lets not get carried away here.
we won't win all of our games

fingers crossed we do

2.) 03 Mar 2018 12:23:05
I can’t believe some fans if we win all our games, if Celtic bottle it, let’s just enjoy the football we are playing better but we will have skip ups, let’s secure second we have dropped to many silly points this season, let’s hope for some investment a good summer transfer window and see where that takes us

3.) 03 Mar 2018 12:29:13
What's wrong with thinking we could yet nick the title? Aiming for 2nd is negative. Agreed, at the beginning of the year I'd never have thought we'd be in this position but we are playing really well. I've said all along that Brenda and the manky mob are nowhere as good as THEY think they are and that is proving to be right. Come on Morton at 28/ 1!

4.) 03 Mar 2018 13:05:52
That is the crucial thing Doiger. They are not nearly as good as they think they are and that may well be their undoing. Nothing wrong with being positive. Why should we just settle for second when we can win?

5.) 03 Mar 2018 14:29:59
One game at a time for me, want a furious tempo from the word go tomorrow and blow Falkirk away early, then o oot Celtic and only if we beat them will there be even a sniff of the title. We are well capable of beating them but all I ask is that we are at our best on the day and we take it to them like no one else has this season domestically. Should be a good week ahead as long as we get the job done tomorrow and who knows, maybe a Hampden semi against them again!

6.) 03 Mar 2018 18:13:59
let's just beat them on the 11th first. Personally I don't see us winning all our games but neither will they. lots of football to be played yet!



01 Mar 2018 09:29:45
I hope Murphy and John are fit to face the manky mob a week on Sunday but if they are not, what are the best options? Perhaps we could play a flat back 3 of Martin, Bates and Alves with Tavernier and say Candeias as attacking wing backs. Bring Holt in for Murphy so we'd have Goss, Docherty, Holt, Windass and Morelos. Too early for Wallace maybe unless he gets a game against Falkirk?

Foderingham; Martin, Bates, Alves; Tavernier, Candeias; Goss, Holt; Docherty, Windass; Morelos

No way should Halliday play and I really do hope that Murphy and John make it!


1.) 01 Mar 2018 10:02:02
Don’t think it’s a game to be trying a whole system change, 4-5-1 or 4-4-2 diamond and if injuries will mean a makeshift left back then so be it, fingers crossed though

2.) 01 Mar 2018 10:26:50
It's a tricky one, I like a back 3/ 5 with wing backs, but we have to press them high up the field, they struggle against teams who press them. Also we must keep the Tav Candeias RB/ RW partnership for the OF. Worked a treat last time and to move Tav when he's in the form he's in right now doesn't make sense. If both are out and we have Wallace and Dorrans fit I'd go with them. LW is an issue if Murphy misses the game, but they'll have Lustig out as well!

3.) 01 Mar 2018 12:10:30
Lustig has been awful. I’m gutted he’s out

4.) 01 Mar 2018 12:28:36
Murphy will be fit I think. He is a gers man after all. Will be desperate to play. Might miss falkirk game though

5.) 01 Mar 2018 13:33:27
I, like many others, was getting excited at the prospect of Murphy taking on Lustig. But who's Lustig keeping out of their first XI? Whoever it is he must be even worse!

6.) 01 Mar 2018 14:12:51
Think Murphy will make it but if John don't then haft to hope Wallace is fit if not we will haft to go with haliday or even hodson as we are playing well and really starting to gel so we can't change the system haft to just make do in that position.

7.) 01 Mar 2018 14:17:32
boyata and a young boy henderson i think also both just bk from injury send whoever they want only going to be full of excuses anyway

It's a shame that Martin, Bates and McCrorie are all injured and that Danny Wilson left. What about Aidan Wilson? Didn't he play one or two games earlier this season? Alternatively, play Tavernier, Alves and John in a back 3 and Holt and Goss in front of them, then Docherty, Murphy, Windass; Morelos, Cummings in a 3-2-3-2?

13 Mar 2018 09:25:29
Morelos misses too many sitters but I would say having watched the highlights on TV again that he was NOT OFFSIDE in the first half when through on goal. That was a crucial decision. I wonder if young Hardie would have missed that Morelos sitter on Sunday?
