Think Colac is on his way to Rangers announcement soon! Will beca cracking addition.

2Blue

1.) 28 Jun 2022 21:29:48
If he’s better then Itten then it’s an improvement to the squad.


2.) 28 Jun 2022 21:40:50
Think Colak all but sold on coming to Rangers, just need to agree fee with PAOK. €3m (£2.5m) the fee they asking for apparently.


3.) 28 Jun 2022 21:46:48
I was just told he will sign on Friday, decent source i think he will do well for us and challenging for a starting 11 place, he scored a good few goals in cl qualifiers last season, if he does sign he will do well for us, and i feel Morelos will benefit from someone chasing his spot in the team and i think he will improve, that's offcourse if he stays.


4.) 28 Jun 2022 22:32:58
Will we know by 2pm tomorrow?


5.) 28 Jun 2022 23:46:48
Hope it is not the same as today.


6.) 29 jun 2022 02:03:39
i have a nagging feeling that alf will be gone in a heartbeat, i hope not though.


7.) 29 Jun 2022 02:43:33
If it’s 2.8mil then so be it, it’s pennys for a striker, just get the deal done it’s a definite upgrade on Itten imo, we need 3 decent strikers all capable of starting.


8.) 29 Jun 2022 06:43:58
3rd September Colak to score Rangers to win ????.


9.) 29 Jun 2022 07:47:01
He done well at malmo but the worry is he has been poor in Greece.


10.) 29 Jun 2022 07:58:33
At least we know he has it in him. Sometimes just doesn't work out. A bit like the much maligned Ced Itten.


11.) 29 Jun 2022 10:44:38
Storm, Malmö are a better team than POAK hence why Colak scores more for them as they create a lot more chances, I think he will get even more service from the players around him at Rangers. Colak offers something different to both Morelos and Roofe and is 100% an upgrade on Itten. If reports are true he will be a Rangers player in the next week or so that leaves us to get a GK in if Mcrorie goes, AM if Aribo leaves, RW has to be one of the priority positions to compete with Wright, plenty of time left to see what happens I don’t think Ross Wilson or the board will be sitting in their hands we have to qualify for CL and win the league back.


12.) 29 Jun 2022 11:08:33
If we get Colak i think he will do very well for us, i and think he will fall in love with our club.


13.) 29 Jun 2022 11:24:12
does the same 1st July deadline for 'foreign' signings also apply to European teams looking to sign e. g. Alf? Kent?


14.) 29 Jun 2022 11:49:14
Yes bar72,can't officially sign until 01/ 07.


 

 

24 May 2022 09:42:54
John you mentioned previously that Sands was just using Rangers as a stepping stone on his way to signing for Man City. Any news on his move to City? Still can't get my head around how a players that can't get a game for Rangers will be signing for City :-)

2Blue

1.) 24 May 2022 10:05:21
It won’t be till rafter loan deal, company that own city own New York.
He has to prove he can handle Europe first.


2.) 24 May 2022 10:13:55
No way did he say that lol.


3.) 24 May 2022 10:21:34
Sands ain’t going to city c'mon man. He’s looked ok without standing out in anyway when playing DM. However I thought he looked very good in the dead rubber match v hearts as a ball playing CB, gave me some optimism for him going forward…Jury still out but he has something.


4.) 24 May 2022 10:55:41
Great to see people on here know more than man
City coaches who recommended sands to Gio when he was shadowing pep.

Same individual slaughtered Bassey his first few games for us.

{Ed001's Note - it doesn't matter anyway, City might not want him for their first team, it could be any of their huge group of teams that they are getting him prepared for. They have clubs in a number of leagues now and they work as a group to get players for them. It allows them to hide costs and spread them out to avoid FFP regulations.}


5.) 24 May 2022 10:59:55
Good to have players with ambition and confidence in their own ability.


6.) 24 May 2022 11:14:53
Cheers Ed one, good insight as always from u.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome. I thought it bore pointing out as it would not be the first time they had moved players around they actually never had any intention of putting in the Man City first team. Such as Aaron Mooy, that moved from Melbourne City on a free transfer to Man City, simply so they could then sell him on and make a bit more money for FFP. They never saw him as being good enough for Man City, just an asset to sell on.}


7.) 24 May 2022 11:38:44
Good insight Ed01, thanks. Akin to corporate transfer pricing.

{Ed001's Note - I will nod and pretend I have ever heard of that!}


8.) 24 May 2022 11:41:07
Great info, Ed001.
Never even knew they did that either!
I'm assuming it's "legal" in a FFP sense? But morally wrong on so many levels.

{Ed001's Note - it is technically legal, Udinese and Watford do the same thing and a number of other groups. When the other club in the Udinese-Watford ownership group was sold, (I forget which one it was but Tony Adams was involved in trying to clear up the mess) they found they actually had not one single player registered to the club as under its ownership. They were all Udinese and Watford players on loan! It nearly destroyed the club.}


9.) 24 May 2022 12:05:34
No need to have a dig at john tho as johns ifo is always spot on it mustve took some reading nack on posts to hit back way that.


10.) 24 May 2022 12:10:35
So City recommended james sands to gio when Sands was 17/ 18 and on loan at louisville? At the least I'd say its far fetched. Phillip Sandler written all over it.


11.) 24 May 2022 13:48:01
Sands is a bit of an enigma. There is definitely a player in there. Goes about his business quietly and efficiently.


12.) 24 May 2022 15:14:28
I really rate Sands and can see him being a much bigger part in our first team next season - I think he offers the in game flexibility that we've started to see Gio implement and expect to see fully embedded for the start of next season.


13.) 24 May 2022 15:38:39
Must be Salford City he meant.


14.) 24 May 2022 16:14:32
I love MPH stats and without doing any checking myself I reckon Sands stats will be impressive esp on ball retention. He has impressed me and the massive emergence and transformation of Lundstram is why his game time has been cut. He was viewed as the player who can easily move between the CDM and CB positions during games.


15.) 24 May 2022 16:37:31
Craig please what do u mean re Salford city.


16.) 24 May 2022 16:37:47
I think he’s a hand player to have due to his versatility but hasn’t blown me away yet with any performances. Solid squad member however.


17.) 24 May 2022 19:57:50
this has been happening for years now, i'm surprised how many people don't know this, the group who own city have many players spread around the world, i'm told bt an old agent pal that even agents sometimes have difficulty explaining the situation to prospective clients.


18.) 25 May 2022 12:41:18
Nice to see you posting regularly again Tom. How are you getting on in Croatia? Beautiful country and lovely climate. Nice people as well.

Wales hero and former Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has agreed to join Rangers on loan from Juventus.

1.) 31 Jan 2022 13:00:13
Well that one slipped through.
Good signing.


2.) 31 Jan 2022 13:05:01
I would love this to be true but I just can't see this happening. I hope I am wrong and I am normally optimistic ut this just seems to good to be true.


3.) 31 Jan 2022 13:09:23
Raman at the airport is hilarious.


4.) 31 Jan 2022 13:12:14
is someone having a laugh?


5.) 31 Jan 2022 13:17:04
Well, half an hour ago Ramsey was a dead cert and confirmed as signed, and suddenly the gossip is that he is going to Wolves! Other sites saying Rangers leading the chase. I'll not believe this one until he's paraded wearing the top, and won't rejoice until he plays a game and does well.


6.) 31 Jan 2022 13:18:46
I'm looking out my window looking for jets with Italian regy numbers. None spotted yet but will keep you all posted if i spot any.


7.) 31 Jan 2022 13:19:06
Third Italian journo saying it's done deal- Nicolo Schira

Some shift Ed must be having the day by the way 🤣.


8.) 31 Jan 2022 13:19:25
2m fee for loan and 4.5m buy option being reported.


9.) 31 Jan 2022 13:22:20
Aaron Ramsey has just been spotted down the gallowgate, putting up union bear stickers, shouting . True story.
Wonder how big John Fartson will feel about him now 🤣.


10.) 31 Jan 2022 13:25:48
Nope gers front runners.


11.) 31 Jan 2022 13:32:16
Option to buy? Hahaha he's on 300k a week.


12.) 31 Jan 2022 13:53:10
4.5 and the other 400k a week he is on 😂. Don't think there's a loan fee involved but read we are paying 2million worth of wages to him to get him in the door. Will wait and see.


13.) 31 Jan 2022 13:55:56
The problem with Juve accepting Rangers offer is that about 10 premier league teams will now say to Juve "we will give you the same deal or slightly better" and if he has to choose between Rangers and a decent EPL club, then I'd be amazed if he chooses us.

Forrest in for Kamara, we are losing our best players, need to be careful we are not ending up with a weaker team than last year.

2Blue

1.) 01 Aug 2022 10:01:10
Forest just signed 13 million midfielder this morning, I do believe kamara will move by January window at latest.


2.) 01 Aug 2022 10:22:24
If kamara goes we will replace.


3.) 01 Aug 2022 11:47:59
If Kamara goes maybe the door opens to go for Olaru?


4.) 01 Aug 2022 12:07:09
Olaru then we get a player more suited to Gio system,
We have a provisional medical booked.


5.) 01 Aug 2022 12:31:46
Kamala has been good, but sometimes drifts away in games …. any bid over 5 mill would be good business, remember 50,000 quid buy from Dundee so I think that we sell when his value is still high . Good business again if he goes for over 5 mill .
Do think we need a creative midfielder regardless, someone who can unlock the park the bus teams we play against.


6.) 01 Aug 2022 14:31:03
£5 million big eck your at it need to match his £12 million release clause or offer 8 million with add ons and sell on clause.


7.) 01 Aug 2022 16:34:29
If he goes for 5m it's the biggest robbery ever, so notvsure whyvit would be good business. Kamara is a 10m player every day ofvthe week.


8.) 01 Aug 2022 17:09:07
Herewego55 I think the biggest robbery was us getting Kamara for 50k.


9.) 01 Aug 2022 17:34:13
I’m told we agreed to give Dundee 5% sell on.
Also we would allow them to take players in future loan deals.


10.) 01 aug 2022 20:11:47
there was an agreement with dundee john,
bigeck it isntgood business to sell anything under value, no matter what you paid for it.


 

 

08 Jul 2022 08:35:31
Colak replaces Itten and Lawrence replaces Aribo, although I am excited to see how the new players perform, its not exactly blockbuster stuff. The club has not spent a penny from last seasons financial windfall.

2Blue

1.) 08 Jul 2022 08:57:23
Is the transfer window closed?


2.) 08 Jul 2022 09:10:32
2 blue that will come I reckon gio will be seeing who we can get free first and on the cheap. Then maybe 1 marquee signing or 2.


3.) 08 Jul 2022 09:35:46
SG spend a shed load. You woukd like to think GVB woukd be equally as supported.


4.) 08 Jul 2022 09:37:26
2Blue - Agreed, neither of them making me sit up and take notice - let's hope they both hit the ground running. with Lowry, King, McCann and at a push Devine, I'm not sure we are any stronger than last season, but got to give these young guys a chance to take us to another level.
Early days yet in the window - so keep fingers crossed we get Kent / Morelos to sign extensions, and Bassey stays with us.
And maybe, even maybe a Marquee signing still to come ;-) ;-)


5.) 08 Jul 2022 09:41:05
2 blue. We don’t need to spend to progress, our three signings are upgrades on who they replace.

We always need to be prudent, I still think as Kirkcaldy says there will be a marquee signing.


6.) 08 Jul 2022 09:58:44
Upgrades should walk in to the starting 11. So these players John are certain starters.


7.) 08 Jul 2022 10:55:49
Colak will be as Roofe and Morelos injured.


8.) 08 Jul 2022 11:02:15
John agree we need to be prudent and the important thing now is to get Morelos and Kent signed up to new contracts but so far we have colak for Itten which i think is an upgrade have high hopes for colak, then lawrence for Aribo hard to say if that's an upgrade or not time will tell. Just saying we don't as yet seem to have spent a penny despite doing really well financially last season. I fear the marquee signing will be a loan deal. Seems like we will not spend unless we qualify for champions league. Finances must be tighter than i thought.


9.) 08 Jul 2022 12:16:54
John do you rate Lawrence better than aribo? He does look good on the old YouTube.


10.) 08 Jul 2022 14:22:31
Bgate, more dynamic, he has the potential to score more than aribo, hagi kent Wright Arfield.

Martin Boyle is available after his team are relegated. Cheap option for right wing, performs in the league!

5.) 28 Jun 2022 12:37:30

Yes Tom. Played with John in the drum.


7.) 28 Jun 2022 13:15:10

8.) 28 Jun 2022 13:56:01
And there’s the hat trick, Anderson, Wilson and Boyle…. you couldn’t make it up ???.


9.) 28 Jun 2022 14:09:59
Boyle isn’t better than what we have hahahaa who on our right wing is better than Boyle ?.


10.) 28 Jun 2022 15:19:34
S wright and in my eyes he is a back player, Lowry can play rw 2 far batter than that a×××.


11.) 28 Jun 2022 15:30:07
Did Polaris not score 5 against killie in one game? And I’m sure he was a player we recruited from junior football?


12.) 28 Jun 2022 15:39:52
Bgate McDonald never scored 5 in the one game from us.
Signed straight from school at 16 Waverley Academy, Drumchaple. Also player for an Amateur team called Clydebank Strollers.


13.) 28 Jun 2022 15:46:40
GVB Lowry ain’t a winger.


I would have Boyle over wright but he isn’t the answer.


14.) 28 Jun 2022 16:21:56
Stromtroper Lowry can play on the rw, seen the b team 5/ 6 times last season and he played on the rw twice.


15.) 28 Jun 2022 16:43:25
John can Lowry play on the rw. i seen him play lw fwd rw cma.


16.) 28 Jun 2022 17:45:29
Thanks John.


17.) 28 Jun 2022 17:52:32
I think most of you are under-rating Boyle could definitely fo a job for us, but doubt if it will ever happen so conversation is a bit pointless i guess.


18.) 28 Jun 2022 18:10:17
Yes Lowry can play on the rw, however I don’t think that is his best position

Do people forget he played lw against hearts and done well.


19.) 28 Jun 2022 18:13:15
Playing on right for B team is different from big team would be wasted there IMO another his best position.


20.) 28 Jun 2022 19:30:52

Aaron Ramsay penalty one of the most feeble penalties i have ever seen. You would think a guy on £100k a week would be confident enough to blast the ball past the keeper. Anyway its not over, two seeded games and we get to the promised land this is very doable. Gio needs transfer funds to build his own team and i believe in Gio, i'm excited to see his team. Finally, been going to post this for weeks, Bassey this kid is immense only 22 years old, love this kid, what a signing he's turned out to be.

2Blue

1.) 19 May 2022 10:26:43
Definitely mate agree totally.

Cutrone is the missing piece of the jigsaw, exactly what we need, really like this player it would be a brilliant signing fingers crossed it gets over the line. He will be excellent in Scotland and suited to the Scottish game. I have just become a lot more confident of winning the league, great signing.

Davis is a class act, but no spring chicken. Does it not say something, that despite signing all these new players the manager preferred Davis. New players can't be up to much if we still have to rely on the oldies. And where was Matondo, anther new signing deemed not good enough for a starting position. I am not impressed by RW signings and neither is Gio!

Midfield was totally ineffective last night. If you want to control a game you must have a strong midfield. Also its the midfield that creates openings for the forwards. Kamara very poor, Tillman not a midfielder, Lundstrum playing in back four at times, it’s never going to work. Gio was clueless last night.
