First competitive game of the season and tbh I think this is a real sticky wicket given we haven't played any pre-season friendlies in a competitive environment, played a few closed doors games but they are totally like training games.

This one is the earliest the team has had to play and that will be our downfall if we falter against this team, of course we should really take care of business but a lot of new players in that team adds to Rangers difficulties.

 

Hearing this one is close to a sell out and Rangers will yet again break another attendance record, record attendance for a first round qualifying game in the Europa is set by West Ham at just under 35000. Rangers have already sold 42000 for this one so a new record will be set again by the club which is brilliant.

 

 

Difficult tie to negotiate given our circumstances but they should win this, 2-0 Rangers

Really looking forward to this one. Not going to make any excuses. This mob are duds and have never won a game in Europe! Rangers could hardly of hand picked an easier tie. I see Cam is predicting 2-0. I ll be honest I ll be bitterly disappointed if we only get 2-0 against a team as poor as they appear to be.

I reckon a par score is 4 or 5 -0. Anything less than a 3 goal victory isn't good enough.

Would love to see Rossiter get a start as he could be a standout in this team.

Very close to a sell out which is incredible. Rangers don't need to make excuses about holidays and buying school uniforms (that was my favourite)

6-0 Rangers πŸ˜„πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§πŸ˜„

Let's hope the club's return to European football, having played in over 300 games, is a successful one and kicks off a fine start to this forthcoming season.

Assume Alves won't be playing as he was playing for Portugal tonight (and doing pretty well keeping Vidal and company at bay)

Also an addition to that - looks a very accomplished and assured Centre half and a danger at set pieces at the other end

I ve been paying special attention to him (obviously) and he has looked really impressive since he came into the team. Portugal lost sloppy goals in their first game when he wasn't playing against Mexico(if i remember correctly) the injury time equaliser was especially poor in that game.

 

It really is a bit of a coup Rangers managing to get a player of his quality. It was mentioned in commentary that both Rangers and Celtic have been linked with Nani. Now that would be a fantastic signing for either team

True story...

 

My mate picked up an old Psychic today and she said he would have knee problems (hes a fat bastard and a taxi driver) , Said a woman would come into his life (she winched him in Car Park 2 at the airport) and Rangers would win 2-1 tomorrow. She better have got the last bit wrong!! 16/1 at Bet 365 if you fancy her getting the full house

Not the landslide many on this forum expected - didn't see the game but I'm assuming it should have been more

 

Will wait on Cam's assessment as its always very fair (not saying others aren't like)

 

Did the new signings look good?

Positive sgns from team performance?

Pedros tactics/in game changes?
