I few people are mentioning Katic as our best defender. I actually think he’s SG’s best signing, who do you guys think is SG best signing?

You’re going to be biased though aren’t you with a name like that 😉. I do agree though that I could see him being the one that could be sold on for the most looking at his potential and age.

Gerrard's best signing is our wonderful veteran midfielder, steven davis! If we are to win the league this season, he will be one of the main reasons, as he's our puppet master, who makes our team tick. The midfield if it functions properly, is the area that wins or loses games/
wins or loses trophies. Always has been.


3.) 30 Sep 2019 07:37:52
what I will say is that quality CBs are like hen's teeth, so if Katic develops in to a Gough, Butcher etc then he would be the best signing indeed.


4.) 30 Sep 2019 12:38:20
Scott Arfield has been a terrific signing for us.


5.) 30 Sep 2019 13:28:19
Alan McGregor is his best signing.


6.) 30 Sep 2019 15:23:41
All good shouts! Going to see so many positive signings being made!


7.) 30 Sep 2019 16:47:22
Jermaine Defoe. Massive statement of intent and very good for our teams development.

Hope SG puts his hands up and says I got it wrong. We were schooled in every department by a really poor Celtic team. Only one team was set out to win and that lies with the manager.

Really frustrated that the Ed’s didn’t post my response but here goes again.

I clearly called out we’d signed two very very good players, in my opinion the two I was talking about was Aribo and Helander, although I acknowledge that the later is pure based on the transfer fee.

The other 8 players we’ve signed are quantity signings, purely to increase our squad, all 8 could easily not play and simply sit on the bench.

We were promised quality signings over quantity, 8 v 2 is very unbalanced.

Now you put a below average player from a poor Kilmarnock team into the mix then I’m lost for words at the overall average approach we’ve taken to transfers.

{Ed001's Note - have you ever thought it might not have come through? Whining about things not being posted is more likely to just get your posts deleted out of hand than help your case. Most of the time people complaining have sent it using a mobile and haven't realised their connection dropped off and so the post never came through.}


1.) 20 Aug 2019 19:20:03
Fair play Ed, apologies I thought it was personal 🤪

Won’t happen again mate, sorry.

{Ed001's Note - no mate, I make a point of not looking at who has posted until after I have decided what to do with it.}


2.) 20 Aug 2019 19:25:25
Unless it’s Supercoop having a meltdown believe all posts make it through.

{Ed001's Note - not all mate. But those that don't are for good reason, such as overly personal attacks on another poster or trying to point score over things that really are not for a banter site. The regular posters do tend to get pretty much all posts through, simply because the content of the posts is decent. We tend to get a lot sent from new posters that has to be deleted though. Sadly the vast majority of people behind a keyboard spend their time trying to be nasty and abusive, which is why we have to pre-edit everything, rather than just allowing it to go straight up unchecked.}

Greg Taylor is better than any lb we have Halliday was shocking on Sunday.


4.) 20 Aug 2019 21:06:06
A good insight to how things work. I know most of us on here have followed the site for a while and appreciate what you do for us! Keep up the good work!

{Ed001's Note - thanks mate. We did originally go without editing in the early days, but it meant I was spending my entire time removing stuff that shouldn't have been there. There was people posting up nasty comments about the disasters of Munich, Ibrox and Hillsborough and I am sure you can guess the kind of things that Rangers fans would post. It is sad what people think is ok to use to cause an argument online.}


5.) 20 Aug 2019 21:13:06
Thanks Ed001, good to hear fair and balanced editorial review process in place.

Supercoop, no disrespect and only good intentions in passing reference to you.

{Ed001's Note - we try to leave you as free as possible, it is only abuse and swearing, as we know kids read the sites, but really we don't want to get involved with editing if at all possible.}


6.) 20 Aug 2019 21:35:10
No problem bankie, we're all bears together on here with different opinions. that's what makes it healthy mate, if you catch my drift. Would just like to reiterate what some have already said in reference to thanking the good work the ed's do, to supply this fantastic site for us all to air our opinions and views. So from me also, i thank all the ed's very much for this terrific facility you guys supply for us! 👏👏
You all do a cracking job, cheers again.

{Ed001's Note - cheers SGL, over 18 years now since we started the first site, with absolutely no idea what to expect.}


7.) 21 Aug 2019 00:29:55
Hopefully this post to tell Katic to dry his eyes makes it through hahaha! Honestly mate, lighten up, we have definitely strengthened. It was the squad that needed strengthened more than the starting 11. It was when we needed to go to the bench or got suspensions or injuries that we fell apart last year.


8.) 21 Aug 2019 00:32:07
Gonna address sir rock katic's point. It's nonsense what you've posted there mate, 8 poor signing v 2 good ones? Based on what? You realise Steve Davis is one of those don't you? Jones has shown good performances in just last 2 starts, Edmondson hasn't put a foot wrong, ojo has a few goals and assists already and king is a premier league player who only played 30 mins. What an unbelievably negative post. The only questionable signing for me is greg stewart.


9.) 21 Aug 2019 00:11:30
Clearly you did not read my response properly so I’m not going to rewrite it, just ask you to re-read it.
Question though- would you rather we brought in a number of players and improve the overall squad, have a strong first 11 and strong options in reserve or, sign a couple of ‘big name players’ (say like a couple of Mexican internationals or a Portuguese international with over 100 caps) that don’t fit the team we are building and cause us to flop?

Have you also considered how difficult it is to bring players of a better ‘quality’ than say Davis, Jack, Kamara, Morelos, Tav etc etc to play in the Scottish league? Celtic have had to spend £7m on a player no one had heard of and £3m in a left back who looks terrible.

We clearly have brought in players that have improved the overall quality of the squad. Come back to me at the end of the season and if you’re not happy with the way things have gone fair enough. Oh and if you don’t want to renew your season ticket there’s 15k waiting to take it.


10.) 21 Aug 2019 00:16:21
Couldn't lace barisic boots tango 👍 big mans not had a run of 8 to 10 games yet to get a bit of confidence up and up to full match fitness. Still convinced wed see a different animal if he got a decent run in the tesm.


11.) 21 Aug 2019 08:01:40
Barisic has most definitely had enough chances herewego55.Always have said he's talented but i'd cut my losses and try and sell him now. It doesn't look as if he has the heart to play for our club, in the scottish game. Hope we can sign either max lowe or greg taylor, to replace barisic.

I was watching the reading game earlier on and Ejaria was outstanding. Now I was a huge critic of Ejaria, he was timid, weak, ineffective and generally nowhere near the standard required to play for Rangers. It then got my thinking of Waghorn who again was murder but appears to be doing okay in the championship. What stops these players making it with us but then playing well in a better league? Are our standards too high? Is our league better than people think? do these players simple not try as hard playing in Scotland?

Sir_Rock_Katic

1.) 18 Aug 2019 15:57:42
Both Players could not deal with pressure and expectation to perform to win every game. The expectation at Rangers and Celtic has found out many players in the past.


2.) 18 Aug 2019 15:59:47
A mixture of all those things imo. But definitely huge pressure playing for us, can never make a mistake, never have one poor pass without the crowd wanting blood!


3.) 18 Aug 2019 16:52:17
The English Championship isn't that good.


4.) 18 Aug 2019 17:21:16
The quality of player in the english championship isn't great and neither is the standard of football. Its only competitive because every club is on a par with each other. How many players over the last few years have came to us from that league and been poor and then go back and do pretty well. Playing for us is completely different to playing with a derby or a reading. 👍.


5.) 18 Aug 2019 17:22:34
Mrgrumpy - " the English Championship isn't that good " Oaft, what a poor statement my friend.


6.) 18 Aug 2019 17:23:26
game is very fast here. a lot of rushing into tackles etc. players don't get any time on ball and hve to be able to adapt to that and the pressure.


7.) 18 Aug 2019 22:26:38
Really? I stand by it. there's some big clubs i. e Leeds, Nottingham Forest and a lot of money But in my opinion the league standard isn't great. Boys like waghorn apparently worth millions, bang average up here. Player of the year and league goldenboot, Pukki couldn't get a game for c*ltic.


8.) 19 Aug 2019 08:50:23
Waghorn was good enough for us as main striker in championship but not when we got promoted. Think that will also be the case with Derby regardless of his valuation. The boy Ejaria was good enough for us under SG abut just could not settle in Scotland. He left for non football reasons and hopefully has now developed as a person.


9.) 19 Aug 2019 11:26:34
The game up here relies too much on physicality rather than technique. Ejaria did not like the tough tackling.


10.) 19 Aug 2019 13:04:23
I liked Ejaria but he wasn't up for the fight / thought he was a superstar.


 

 

08 Aug 2019 20:51:35
Very good result against a reasonable team, very well played.

Sir_Rock_Katic

1.) 08 Aug 2019 21:09:50
Yeah the were a big physical side!


2.) 08 Aug 2019 21:42:21
Being honest I thought they would be better than they were. I thought we played well but not brilliantly. Still trying to find our formation and squad with the new signings.

Katic before any defender in the SPL, everyday of the week and twice on a Sunday.

Our defensive should be built around him! OPINION! 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿.

Charlie Adam shouldn’t have been at Rangers the first time never mind when he is three stone heavier. I couldn’t even see him getting on the bench of our reserves. Hutton is done, he was my favourite right back and I always put him in my greatest 11 but his time has been and gone. Not sure if he’d consider some sort of coaching role but not as a player in my opinion. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿.

Polster yes but the other names you’ve suggested are crazy.

I’m sure every player in the squad could play right back but most (like the names you’ve suggested) would be hopeless.
