I would urge all bears on here not to start gloating or throwing about wild predictions before the game on Sunday. Leave that carry on for the Clampits. Chris Sutton was correct in saying that this is the first oldfirm game in years. This one can go either way. Let's just hope it's our way.

If we play Morelos, Windass, Murphy and Cummings as 4 attacking midfielders with All interchanging as the lead striker we will confuse and scare the rubbish out them 👍

06 Mar 2018 07:21:59
That would mean leaving out candias and his work rate and link up with tav would be invaluable in an old firm

06 Mar 2018 07:41:05
It’s not champ man.

06 Mar 2018 08:10:22
Think we will go with 5 in the middle.
Would like to see Docherty push into Scott Brown in an almost man-marking role. He has the physique and will be full of energy. Would like to see him dig deep and bully Brown. Remove Browns time and composure on the ball and Celtic are a lesser team imho

06 Mar 2018 10:02:50
Easy win for the Gers 5-0 fodders hat trick

06 Mar 2018 10:23:40
delusional, but i would love you to be right

06 Mar 2018 14:32:29
Good to see under 20s follow their 7-0 win over Huddersfield with a 4-1 win over aek Athens today. Young Kelly excellent today and scored again. Also very impressed with Rudden who scored three.
These two for 17 have real potential.
Young lad Dallas also progressing well, scored 4 against Huddersfield

06 Mar 2018 14:55:29
Bathgatebear. 3 times you mentioned the Scott Browns name there, forget about him.

06 Mar 2018 17:21:50
Rick, like it or not he dictates the play for them. He sits in front of the back four and keeps possession and sets the tempo. Press him with energy and fearlessness and it completely upsets them. Exactly what Champions League opponents did this year.

07 Mar 2018 09:58:27
Never mind just the champions league opponents. Hearts managed to hump them 4-0 with a 16 year old in midfield pressing brown at every opportunity

07 Mar 2018 10:21:51
That’s exactywhat I mean. An abundance of energy matched with the strength of Docherty might just make the difference at the weekend?

07 Mar 2018 14:51:13
Well said BathgateBear fae a Broxburn Bear in OZ

07 Mar 2018 15:54:32
@Bathgatebear - 100% agree. That's when the Lego Muncher starts to lose the plot when he doesn't get time on the ball to play his natural game.

07 Mar 2018 16:43:35
I would urge all bears to start gloating after the whistle on Sunday because there is going to be a lot to gloat about!

05 Mar 2018 20:21:43
Shouts for Cummings to start in the OF I can understand I love the guy and he got badly needed start and goals yesterday, but Morelos for me is a far better all round player and should get the nod for OF.

I've been wishing we'd go with the two of them up top together but yesterday showed why Murty's not done it - the number of times they could have played each other in for a tap in but went for goal themselves! Both really good finishers and because of that have a greedy streak (not a bad thing in a striker) . But if they realised they'd both get more goals if they helped each other, they'd be some strike partnership!

I just hope we keep both players after summer because they're both class strikers!

Agree15 Disagree0

05 Mar 2018 21:14:41
And also the fact a 4 man midfield just doesn’t work most of the time in the modern game hence the reason most teams don’t go with a 4.

05 Mar 2018 23:46:26
What a ray of sunshine ☝️☝️😂😂

06 Mar 2018 09:41:43
Morelos better than Cummings have a day off, did you not see those misses at the weekend to add to the collection of absolute sitters he’s missed this season.

06 Mar 2018 10:09:55
i like the 4231 formation with the two wingers bombing on and windass in the free roll morelos drags defenders all over the place goss and docherty give the back 4 plenty of protection as do candeias and murphy on the wings when needed we play as a solid unit now defending from the front and attacking while playing the game the right way just wish we had this starting 11 in august with murty as boss we would be pissing this league right now.

07 Mar 2018 16:00:34
As modern football evolves, the only way now to play two up top is to go 3-5-2. The '5' in various guises is now the most important part of the team and is where the creativity, energy and drive comes from. Four in the middle and you go from a 2 litre engine to a 1.5 one, a noticeable drop in performance levels.

05 Mar 2018 20:20:49
I don't think we will see that formation against them. We will need 5 in the middle with one up front and after that showing to me it has to be cummings up front. One word describes that boy and its 'gallus'. Its something we have not had in a while. The swagger, the belief in his own abilities. The cockiness. Let him loose on them.

Agree2 Disagree10

05 Mar 2018 22:32:20
Personally I don't think he's strong enough to play there on his own. The Celtic defence bad though it is would hammer him.
He's the nearest thing to ally McCoist we've had for years, deadly from 10 yards but not a lot else. Morelos will run the legs of them, put himself about and hold up the ball.

05 Mar 2018 19:55:58
Anybody got details on opposition for tomorrow's closed door game. Understand Wallace getting run out.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Mar 2018 20:25:45
Celtic, might as well make it three wins on the bounce 😉

06 Mar 2018 11:38:23
St Mirren from what I’ve heard.

06 Mar 2018 12:48:43
I heard st Mirren also

05 Mar 2018 18:54:07
Time to get rid of Bruno Alves aye he was good when he was 27 and worth 20m but now he's an utter passenger .

Agree6 Disagree9

05 Mar 2018 20:19:28
I didn’t see Bruno give the ball away once yesterday? Why is everyone against Bruno. He gave 2 professional fouls away at edge of the box, that was it. He passed the ball well and he is the only one that wins headers back there. I’d take alves all day long in front of a Martin.

05 Mar 2018 20:28:29
Best ch at the club no question

05 Mar 2018 20:32:52
Bruno alves IS a better centre half than russell martin, i do agree people1872!Can't say anymore than that mate!

06 Mar 2018 08:50:14
If people can't see BA is the best centre half in the country, I really do despair.
As a defender and even goalkeeper I would love to have him in the defence every week. Brings confidence, gives advice, and never puts a foot wrong.

06 Mar 2018 10:31:34
Calm, assured, good distribution. Organises the defence. What's not to like? If fit, Bruno has to play imo

04 Mar 2018 19:33:05
Playing two up front has to be a serious option now giving Cummings' serious game time. On a side note, I could have run from main stand and scored Morelos misses. Much as I like the guy would like to know his failure rate.

Agree5 Disagree24

04 Mar 2018 21:09:56
Top goal scorer in the league but you’d rather focus on the ones he misses. Logic.

He’s 20 years old, doing not bad I’d say. He also puts a shift in and creates.

04 Mar 2018 22:54:40
McCoist used to miss a fair amount as well but he still a legend who won us countless games. The boys at least getting into the right positions and he is only 20. Plenty of time to get better

04 Mar 2018 23:31:06
Kris Boyd would be on 30+ goals already this season if he'd had the chances Morelos has had.

05 Mar 2018 10:33:37
Jason cummings would be on 30+ goals with the chances morelos has had this season!

05 Mar 2018 10:47:21
Yes Morelos misses lots of chances and no he didn't have a great game yesterday but as Jason Cummings said he keeps getting in the right places to score and keeps coming back for more after he misses. Let's not forget the lad has been playing non stop since the start of the Finnish season last February. He deserves a break literally. Still top scorer in the SPFL despite all that.

05 Mar 2018 14:16:47
If Boyd had scored all the chances he'd missed he'd be on 30 the now too.

All strikers miss easy chances. Focus on the positives and not the negatives guys.

05 Mar 2018 14:42:20
Bit suss that so many Rangers fans who defend Morelos don't seem to know what age he is and are quick to big him up over the astonishingly clinical Cummings who basically has, give or take, scored or made the keeper majorly work with every single shot he's actually had. The only miss I even remember was a bang over the bar from 25 yards possibly at Ayr.

Morelos doesn't want to be at Ibrox, Cummings is 'buzzin' being here. Morelos missed a bunch of big chances at Parkhead, Cummings surely deserves a go.

05 Mar 2018 18:24:54
Oh dear. So he’s 21 not 20 forgot that most 21 year olds are the finished article. Take it you know Morelos personally and he’s told you he doesn’t want to be here? Harbouring ambitions to play in the premiership doesn’t mean we should get rid. On a side note a would also play Cummings as I think he’s a class player

05 Mar 2018 19:32:02
we try and go at them with 2 or 3 up front we will get picked off for sure

05 Mar 2018 20:02:03
Kris boyd as zero work rate even in his prime he couldn't score for us in big games

05 Mar 2018 20:03:42
Both great strikers but they don't pass to each other. I like a greedy streak in a good finisher but the number of goals they could have racked up yesterday if they played each other in would have been a lot higher.

05 Mar 2018 20:04:51
While Morelos does miss some really good chances, his work rate and off the ball play give no peace to defenders. That probably freed up a lot of space and time for Cummings to get the chances he did. I thought they looked good together.

05 Mar 2018 20:08:17
Cummings will need to settle for a place on the bench but if not going well I hope Murty gets him on before he makes his usual subs and perhaps even at half time. Morelos introduces an element of dynamism that could cause them problems.

Of more concern is if John does not make it. Halliday is not good enough in that position which happens to be where their best player is, and that's where this game will be won or lost.

05 Mar 2018 21:16:24
McCoist and Morelos in the same conversation again you, brilliant.

05 Mar 2018 22:19:54
Deary me Rick where you having such a lovely day you thought you would share you’re negativity with the rest of us? Away back to Celtic Park because you aren’t convincing anyone you’re a blue nose 😂😂😂

05 Mar 2018 22:23:32
Agree Snell they look good together. I’m just not convinced he will go with 2 up front against Celtic. Tricky one because I really like them both. I think he will give Morelos the nod though but if he goes with both hopefully they can both score a few 👍👍

04 Mar 2018 19:28:32
Jc is a cocky wee person, he will score on Sunday.
We've got to think positive, they're ready for the taking.
Worst Celtic team in years.
Cmon bears when is the last time you had a real good positive feeling before an old firm game?
The time is now.

Agree15 Disagree9

04 Mar 2018 19:27:10
Murty got a good few dilemmas for next week. Alves or Martin, does cummings get a starting place. Does Murphy start. Does Halliday keep his spot of risk hopefully fit again John. What a great position to be in. Docherty was great again today and I’m sure will go on to be our captain.

Agree12 Disagree1

04 Mar 2018 22:24:41
What game did u watch the day doc was cap as well as a few others and a hope morels does better not week because he could ey. hit a barn door from 6 yards the day

04 Mar 2018 22:22:33
I'd go
The same team that has been playing so well lately don't see the point in changing to much or the formation just would have Alves over Martin and Halliday becouse the we have no other choice apart from hodson.

05 Mar 2018 13:12:19

was just saying the same thing about Doc yesterday! great wee player and a def future gers captain imo

05 Mar 2018 16:06:28
Doc had a good game. Was everywhere and tried to make passes forward.

04 Mar 2018 11:22:46
With our growing confidence, I think this is the perfect game leading up to next week. I don't think we should be all Timmish and think we just need to turn up as it could be a tricky tie, but if we perform as we have been then we should win. I really hope we go full strength with the exception of Murphy as a precaution.

Agree9 Disagree2

04 Mar 2018 11:06:15
I posted on here the other day about the real possibility of signing goss permanently if we could agree a fee with QPR as he is loving it up here. He has now told SSN that he was told by holloway that his style of play would not suit QPR, now will QPR change their whole style of play to accomodate goss next season? They might if holloway gets the sack.

If holloway stays then why all of a sudden change your style of play to accommodate a player that he signed over a year ago? I don't think holloway will appreciate goss publicly discussing what holloway told him. Holloway sounds like the type of guy who would block a move out of spite. Why would goss want to play for a manager that bought him a year ago to then be told he wouldn't fit in the team. To me its obvious where goss wants to play, its a no brainer for him. If the right price is agreed then he will be ours. Question is how much is the right price?

Agree7 Disagree1

04 Mar 2018 11:30:12
The ways things are QPR are pretty much in a free fall spiral with Holloway oot oan his ear. he’s always been mouthy sh*tet, if we want goss and price can be negotiated he will be on his way, See McBurnie is showing the way, Scotland cap maybe as well.

04 Mar 2018 12:34:08
Let’s hope Holloway is still in a job at QPR come the close season. If he is not then likely much more difficult to sign Goss.

04 Mar 2018 15:46:57
how do you know Goss loves it up here?

04 Mar 2018 19:06:42
Cause he so himself Deeb 😞

05 Mar 2018 20:03:08
they all say they love it here
