Stewie 25, Billyb
Asking the manager to take a job anywhere but ibrox isn't negative. whatever.
Saying we should sign someone to dictate the midfield, we did that, Joey Barton. Sign a defensive midfielder, we did that his name is Jordan Rossiter
MY POINT is there are way too many moaners on here forgetting we were drawing with Peterhead a couple of season's ago and we had a much bigger budget than them. People are moaning thinking we should beat everyone 4-0 and be signing strikers for 4 million, take a reality check.
Sure everything isn't perfect, some signings have been a disaster and the defence needs sorted, I'm really not sure Joe Garner was the best way to spend 1.8 million and also off the field we are no closer to sorting the retail deal. I understand that but don't feel the need to moan about it every post.
We are making progress on all fronts and are much more like our old selves than b4 King and Warburton took over. BUT should we finish worse than 2nd in the SPL I would agree that is not good enough.
Instead of saying u want the manager out, our midfield is useless and King is liar try posting realistic alternative options that would engage a positive discussion.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion mate! You don't need to agree, that's cool also.
I bump my gums often about things not being good enough. Positive energy is, well positive. However the truth is we have not moved very far forward at all, since draws with lower league teams.
The biggest difference from all the previous years is simple.
We are now back in the top league and there is no longer room for excuses or indeed time if we are to stop Celtic achieving dominance over the next 10 years. No more excuses that their titles are tainted because we are not in the league to chase them, that's all gone now. The record will show that from this season on every title Celtic win, we are in that league and failed to stop them.
Nothing has come from the board, King has been invisible and the investment is bare minimum. On top of that we have a manger who has consistently made mistakes and consistently says we will learn when he needs to be doing most of the learning. Now if we finish second great, that will be an achievement. However at this present moment I see nothing from this season that will see us compete in Europe and may well see us embarrassed. So on that front we will have to wait.
I am all for positive energy thinking etc. But this is a forum and all us fans are entitled to blow off steam when we feel it's required.
Give Warbs some money and we might really see what he is or isn't capable of, however so far he has spunked money away on bad investments! The truth is this season is a mess, second or not.

I totally disagree with you saying this season is a mess, what did you expect from this season, we have been out this league for 4 yrs, we are slowly finding our feet, it's the first time our manager has played premier football, so he's also learning about this league, I agree we must finish 2nd but I think we will, I also expect to be much better next year, and I fancy at least 3/ 4 better players to arrive in the summer, you are right in saying that every fan is entitled to their opinion but the negativity on here is sole destroying at times, I think we are making good progress even though our board is being held back by Ashley and co, but we will get there and I fully believe it will be warburton that will get us there but time will tell if I'm right or wrong. but I believe in them to get the job done

Listen mate I am certainly not saying everyone should agree with me! Of course the whole point of a banter page is for discussion. I just mean that if people choose to moan about everythingto do with the current regime then I think it would come across better if they post an actual realistic alternative?
It's your opinion that this season has been a total mess but I'll reserve judgement on it until May.
Cheers for the sensible response though and totally take understand the priority in stopping 10 in a row

gdog 10 are you having a laugh. we are miles better than we were 2 years ago. remember long ball ally mccoist!
6.) 25 Jan 2017 13:24:40
well said the gas!
(old guy sat nxt to me at ibrox for over 25yrs used to call huistra the gas metre. peter)
far too much negativity on here - we are making progress but fan expectations need managed as for some if we ain't beating everyone 3/ 4 nil every wk they moan
we'll get there may just take a bit longer than some are prepared to accept
7.) 25 Jan 2017 14:07:47
Spot on peterhuistra! Some of them on here just don't think through and see the full package. My message as always to them is, think what's happening with our full club and not just get warburton out because of some signings not working out thus far, or out injured!
8.) 25 Jan 2017 14:09:14
a lot of us rangers fans no we are not going to spend 4 million on a player but the odd 1 0r 2 million pound players who we can then sell on for a profit instead of Free agents who we are not going to sell on for any profit as they will leave for free as there not good enough.
and as king promised funding surley this is in his reach is Warburton the man to spend such money I doubt he is looking at his signings so far People say he has not had funds but looking at prices paid so far 500k for rossiter 10k a week doodoo 250k 6k week o'halloran 500k 5k week garner 1.8 million 12k week Barton 20k week then probaly signing on fee and then pay off to leave the club kranjcar signing on fee probaly then 8k week gilks 5 k week and sendoros sitting on 16 k week out of all these players only 1 is a first team regular poor transfer business indeed so I very much doubt Warburton is the man to spend more money we can not afford these mistakes

g dog, we will finish second maybe not as close to them as we would have liked but they made few great signings which has given them a great season with only 1 draw.
we are stuck in a retail contract that makes it hard for us to but quality players and the ones we have signed haven't exactly lived up to their promises and or got injured.
if we keep going in this direction we will be better than the rest of the spl teams and that's all you need to do to be in with a shout for the league!
10.) 25 Jan 2017 16:54:54
its just going to takee time but we are getting things done off the field we have had some bad luck with some signings barton/ krankar/ rossitter we have also had some woeful ones this season we are also missing the goal contribuitions from waghorn;tavenier making it a struggle lately the manager hhas varied his tactics but we can only wait and see how the rest of the season pans out
11.) 25 Jan 2017 20:03:24
I agree mate 100%. Beat everyone else and in theory the league could be won withour even beating Celtic. Things are better, but so much has not moved forward also. Next season is massive, for us all. The board, the management and us the fans. Next season we need to up a gear or two or there will be many like me getting fed up with it all.
12.) 26 Jan 2017 13:01:20
It's not been bad luck tho you sign players that are always injured or trouble good chance it will happen again. His transfer policy is a disaster
21 Mar 2017 15:41:57
To everyone that is against Barry returning incase it turns into another Coisty situation, I didn't hear anyone complaining when he was no2 to Walter Smith with us and Scotland, in fact I never heard a negative story about Ally when he was number 2. So if it is Barry (personally I hope it is) let's wish him the best and get on with it, if he can help nurture any of our midfielder's into being half the player he was he'll have earned his money in my book

The article said he always sets his teams up to attack, that is not the same as not focusing on defence.
A blind man can see we need more balance in our team so I'm sure whoever is appointed will make it a priority to rectify
28 Feb 2017 13:29:04
It will be announced that he is NOT coming. that doesn't make a whole lot of sense mate?
22 Feb 2017 21:33:45
Probably because he is a "Rangers man" that knows what is and isn't acceptable for our club. I like Murty and hope he can return to the U20s job that he was doing well too undamaged from this, because let's be honest he is the lamb to the slaughter here through no fault of his own.

Will we be wearing Nike, Under Armour, New balance or Adidas strips by then Coop?
23 Mar 2017 09:00:14
I agree that we should be looking forward to younger hungrier players than those that left us mate.
I just disagree with others that class them as "traitors".
Also with regards to your Juventus comparison, as u say they only went down 1 division and were back fighting for Scudetto's 12 months later. Del Piero, Nedved and Buffon were all in there 30's too so although it was commendable that they stayed, I don't think it is comparable with our situation. I think Parma got put down to Serie C, I'd be interested to hear how many of there assets on the pitch hung about.
22 Mar 2017 20:46:31
I don't hold any grudges against the lads that left. deserters? I disagree, with hindsight I'm sure they probably wish they'd hung about for nominal transfer fees but remember this, any money that came in would've gone to the crooks running our club at the time just like the 21 million we raised in shares and would've disappeared into another black hole.
They were all happy to take huge wage reductions for long enough and helped us win several trophies so I for one hold no grudges.
21 Mar 2017 17:39:25
I think you're wrong mate. I think he was a pretty Great captain for us and was very successful, something we aren't at the moment, in my mind there's no risk in appointing him as number 3 and hopefully he can make sure the players already there and any new signings what exactly is required when u play for us!
Something I'm not convinced Davie Weir did
17 Mar 2017 15:39:42
I fully respect Jim Stewart as a Rangers man, coach and most importantly a good man. But he is 63, surely that is pretty much past the shelf life of a gk coach?
The club is now going in a different direction so let's embrace it and see where Pedro can take us
14 Mar 2017 23:14:54
I agree that I'm glad he's playing well down there but I'm pretty sure he's not playing as a defensive midfielder, still hopefully he comes back in the summer sharp
