Actually enjoying the fact a bulk of the support have their reservations before the season has kicked off.

Keeps people's expectations realistic unlike early last season when some clowns thought we were going to win the league after just being promoted.

The loaf said that he aimed to be competitive last year which was so far off the mark but I do expect us to up our level of performance this year and be competitive. We have a more physical side this year which once it finds its feet should be in a better place to dig in when we are up against it in crucial away games etc.

i think a lot is riding on the two Mexicans settling in as these are pedros main two gambles I believe due to fees paid. If they flop Pedro may find himself under pressure as they really need to perform going by the look of the rest of the squad. People may feel dorrans is a gamble but I think he will have no bother settling at ibrox and he is a solid pro.

I still worry about our lack of fire power I do need to admit but it's early days. I will get a good look at the team tomoz at ibrox.

Well said Coplandcafu. With regards up front, i'm hoping if Morelos is actually played as a main striker and he is given decent service he should find the net, just going by his record in Finland.

I honestly don't think it's the strikers that's the problem at Rangers. we see so much of the ball and create so little, case and point; Josh Windass was the player who created most assists last season. I mean how many games did he guy even start? He was out injured constantly also. The stat was something like an assist every 209 mins. There's your problem right there. Let's hope the new midfielders can create for the strikers!

cant put my finger on why, but i get the feeling there is a Judas in the camp and I think his name might be Kenny, just get an uncomfortable feeling, Last season he had a lot to say in the press and I just wonder if he has made the new foreign guys feel a little unwelcome, maybe it will change now Bruno is finally aboard?

I keep reading the clamour for more Scots, a Scottish backbone or guys with experience of the SPL.

The Scottish game is crap. The standard is poor, the Scotland team can barely scrape together a win. why should we go Scottish?

Sourness brought in "foreigners" with no SPL experience. The guys like Woods, Butcher, Francis, Roberts and Wilkins were just great players.

We could afford these guys now because of the money in England but we should aim higher than "any Scottish".

IMO the Rangers team is looking good. In order for them to compete at the level we are looking for however, their must be more proven Scottish players added to the mix. Naismith's battling qualities are an obvious requirement and the guaranteed goals of Stevie May being overlooked is alarming. Acquiring the likes of Dorrans and Jack are major steps but do any other fans feel as if the team still lacks a bit of Scottish backbone?

Agree5 Disagree13

21 Jul 2017 17:28:34
I'm inclined to agree and disagree here Nassau.
A more scottish feel to the team definitely. However I'm not convinced May is a good bet. I'm torn over Naisy.
A Scottish backbone would suggest a CB and striker that are Scottish?
Most Scots CB's are poor currently and I would prefer our top 2 to most of them.
As for striker's there are few I would like to see in a blue jersey, either too pricey or not talented enough (Cummings has talent but again torn over him) .
We should IMO have gone for Paterson at RB. Would like to see Walker still.
I think we should give our keepers this season then sell the worse of the 2 and let Kelly move up or bring in another Scot in there.

So we would have Kelly, Wilson, Bates, Wallace, Jack, Holt, Dorrans, Walker, Naisy, Miller

Amazed we didn't go for Liam Lyndsay. Made the spfl team of the year and left for a modest sum

I agree Nassau bear, although no sure about may. I think we should. Have went for Naismith, McClean, maybe big Lindsay pushed boat out for Patterson and Walker. Feel Chris cadden worth a wee gamble. add that to jack, dorrans and the Wallace's millers etc . then you could have a few foreigners.

When the Titanic sank, a small band of musicians refused to stop playing music and sank with the boat. Others on the other hand were pushing the women and children out of the way to get on a lifeboat.

Its only when things are not going right when we see peoples true character.

Keep the faith guys and don't get sucked into the negativity.

It's difficult to be positive after a 5-1 home tanking, lying down to your greatest rivals in a cup semi and losing your unbeaten home record to Aberdeen. Throw into that the shambolic and highly embarrassing Europa loss and fans are entitled to be worried about the direction the club are going under the current manager

Whats the alternative winge like a weed or take it on the chin and get up again and again, drag your self to the finishing line even if your last. That's what this club is built on if your not up to that then support elsewhere.

we sold (gave away) young billy gilmour to chelsea anyone know if we had the wit to get any add ons in the future if he is sold on in years to come?

21 Jul 2017 17:14:21
it would only be guesswork but i hope they did put in an add on or a sell on clause

Agree2 Disagree2

21 Jul 2017 17:31:13
I am guessing but I don't think he was on a pro contract so we had no way of putting clauses in as we have no rights too him. We only got development fee as far as I understand.

If we go out and pump marseille 3-0 will fans get behind the manager and team again or will a result like that be brushed off as its only a friendly!? I think a lot of fans have completely written off this team before the season even kicks off.

Agree11 Disagree1

21 Jul 2017 15:19:22
RfcChris what if we get pumped 3-0 we will be starting the season on the back foot, every Rangers fan hopes we turn things round and win the league this season but have YOU seen anything that makes you think that this is remotely possible? If we win 3-0 tomorrow then that will be a wee sign that we are perhaps on the right track but judging on what I've seen I'm worried.

Jyf, there in lies the problem I'm afraid.
There is very little sense of realism amongst so many of our fans. There is virtually no chance of us winning the league this season. If we finish second, and get within 12 points of Celtic, it will be a very successful season in my opinion. We need 6 or 7 of our new signings to be successful this season and add 2 or 3 quality players the season after and aim to get within 6 points of Celtic in that season and so on, and so on.

Agree5 Disagree2

21 Jul 2017 16:27:12
Big J there does indeed lie the problem, I expect us to win the league and see that as success where as you see finishing 12 points behind them as not only successful but Very successful and you don't even expect us to win the league next season. With your low expectations then you are without doubt going to have a far happier season than me, bring it on!

Agree1 Disagree4

21 Jul 2017 20:46:07
Jyf,

I admire your optimism however I have to agree with big J we won't get anywhere near them again next season and will be lucky to win any silverware. I hope I'm wrong and will be first on here to say I was wrong however I don't think that will happen and I think the manager will be gone by xmas.

1st time poster, and as a Rangers fan and season ticket holder of 35 years I'm utterly embarrassed at some of the so called Rangers fans posting on here and calling for the mangers head at this stage!
1st things first - Pedro's record last season needs to completely ignored. He inherited a bunch of players who were bought specifically by Warbuton to play a certain style of football. Most weren't good enough to achieve even that. What chance did Pedro have trying to get them to play to his preferred style - absolutely none.
Secondly, the Progres game came at a time when the majority of our new signing had been at the club for less than 2 weeks (some less than a week) . Granted, it was a dreadful performance, but some degree of perspective needs to be taken here. We hit the bar 3 times in the second half. Had any of those chances gone in, we'd have gone through.
Thirdly, anybody that knows anything about football, knows not to place any emphasis on pre season friendlies, particularly bounce games.
Time to wise up guys. Give the manager and the players a chance, and get behind the team. If we don't, they have no chance of any form of success, because they'll be on the back foot before they even take to the park on a Saturday.

Best post in long time well said think a lot that post here don't support rangers just scared Tim's

Agree9 Disagree8

21 Jul 2017 15:42:33
Big-J70 if your a season ticket holder for 35 years then you'll know that the fans have called for managers heads that had far better records than pedros.
second, the progress game is the worst result in our history and it happened on pedros watch, if the players were not ready then simply don't play them and play a team that is ready.
Thirdly no-one is placing too much emphasis on bounce games but on top of two humpings by them one by a record score, a fist defeat at Ibrox in 26 years by the sheep and two terrible results against a bunch of amateurs then the emphasis changes.
I'll be at Ibrox tomorrow cheering my team on win or lose but that does not stop me having ( and expressing ) MY opinion on here and if that embarrasses you then i apologise.

Agree5 Disagree6

21 Jul 2017 16:39:20
Well said Big J-70 I was one of the fans shouting for his head on here and still think few results have been highly unacceptable but all things considered we have no choice but to get behind the team and manager . We can all criticise but that achieves nothing so tomorrow a big loud support is what's needed.

Agree3 Disagree2

21 Jul 2017 19:11:54
Absolute garbage bigj70 re Ped's record needing to be ignored last season - he should not have been brought in at that time if it was inevitable he couldn't get warbs players to play his way - why would we bring someone in to fail so spectacularly? He is a professional manager and should have done better - G Murty showed him how to play against the untouchables but he ignored it which seems both arrogant and foolish considering what subsequently happened. I am a supporter with over 40 years of experience watching Rangers ; I will always support my team and I pray Ped is a success but it is important that debate and comment are not stifled ; we can all recognise bleating whining knee jerk reactions for what they are; we can all appreciate that time must be given and patience encouraged but none of us can say this is the start we wanted and to acknowledge that is no act of treachery - sticking your head in the and and your a*#e in the air would be, though

BigJ

If you think that last seasons results don't count then your just not in touch with the reality of football management. Which is astonishing seeing as though you say you have been a season ticket holder for 35 years. Any record defeats or shocking displays in cup semi finals against Celtic are always remembered and will always be used against any manager. Throw in the most embarrassing result ever for a Scottish side in Europe and the scrutiny on the manager and his record as manager gets more intense. You can pretend those results didn't happen last year but in the real world they will be used and no matter what you think they do matter

2 observations from yesterday's training, Dodoo with the senior squad again but doing different work to the rest but more importantly no Rossiter still, either injured again or possibly moving on? The amount of midfielders we have and ones coming in is getting daft so maybe he is. he cost peanuts and Is highly thought of south of the border so it wouldn't surprise me if he's in talks with someone but it's not leaked yet. Anyone know anything?

Agree1 Disagree5

21 Jul 2017 15:51:41
I noticed that too. I hope Rossiter's just had a wee niggle. can't see us getting anywhere near his valuation until we get at least one full season out of him, I'd be very disappointed to sell him now
