Rangers v Marseille

22 July 2017 - 07:24 AM

Rangers play the French team today and I can see a rather uncomfortable afternoon ahead.
Ofcourse the result means nothing in the grand scheme of things but I will be looking/hoping for a decent performance from the players regardless of the result.

The way some bounce games and that European nightmare have gone it gives me deep concern for the season ahead so a good performance from the players is important here. Defeat will not matter as long as I see progress !! On the pitch.

3-1 Marseille

SPL 2017-18

16 July 2017 - 01:50 PM

Cant bring myself to use the silly name they call it now so will stick with the SPL.

 

How do you see the season going for your team and what are folks predictions for the season which is just around the corner.

 

Aberdeen - Runners up in all competitions last season and this one looks to be their toughest in quite some time, they have lost 11 players from the squad and a few of them have been rather important during the last few seasons. Can the new guys coming in fill the massive void left by those who are now gone ? No doubt a little bit of movement still to be done regarding transfers for all the clubs but Aberdeen may sweat over the possible loss of Kenny McLean.

 

Players out : Cammy Smith, Joe Nuttal, Laurence Shankland, Ryan Jack, Johhny Hayes, Aaron Lennox, Nial McGinn, Ash Taylor, Neil Alexander, Robbie Mutch, Peter Pawlett

 

Players in   : Gregg Stewart, Ryan Christie, Gary Mackay Steven, Gregg Tansey, Nicky Maynard, Kari Arnason

 

I'm not so sure about the players being replaced, Chrisite is a good one but Aberdeen are only helping Celtic by taking him and GMS on loan....unless they have a fee after the loan which would be a good move for them, both good players. Maynard is an interesting one so will be watching to see what impact he will have.

Final postion - 4th

Last season - 2nd

 

 

 

Celtic - Obviously massive favourites for the title and I can not see anyone giving them a challenge, strong in every department with exception of maybe the goal keeping position. A lot of players going out the club but no one of any great significance. The big worry for Celtic fans will be the potential loss of important players such as Dembele, Armstrong etc.

 

Players out : Ryan Christie, Gary Mackay-Steven, Scott Allen, Eoghan O'Connel, Paul Mcmullan, Kris Commons, Efe Ambrose, Jamie Lindsay, Logan Bailly, Saidy Janko,

 

Players in   : Johhny Hayes, Kundai Benyu, Olivier Ntcham

 

Only know of Hayes and obviously he has been one of Aberdeens better players so he will be fine domestically, its on the European stage though he will be tested.

Final position - 1st

Last season - 1st

 

 

 

Dundee - Finsihed in 10th place last season and this time round will be another hard slog for Neil McCanns men but I can see them finishing in a far more comfortable position this season. Scott Allan the most notable of those joining the club on loan and if he can capture the form he showed at Hibs then he could proove a creative player for them.

 

Players out : Matty Allan, Daniel Higgins, Calvin Colquhoun, DAvid Mitchell, Rory Loy, Josh Skelly

 

Players in   : Glenn Camara, Scott Allan, Lewis Spence, Randy Walters, Sofien Moussa, Roarie Deacon, Jack Hendry

Final postion - 8th

Last season - 10th

 

 

 

Hamilton Accies - Can only see trouble ahead for the accies, only 1 player added to the squad so far and they were one of the poorer teams I saw visiting Ibrox last season. Will be a relegation battle once again and things are not great among the fans with a number refusing to buy season tickets.

 

Players out : Jack Breslin, Craig Watson

 

Players in   : Xavier Tomas

Final postion - 12th

Last season - 11th

 

 

 

 

Hearts - Important season for the jambos and Cathro, a large number of players have left and a few notable ones at that. Like the dandy Dons can the new guys make an impact this season ?

 

Players out :  Callum Paterson, Robbie Buchannan, Billy King, Tasos Avlonitis, Alexandros Tziolis, Andraz Struna, Dylan Bikey, Juwon Oshaniwa, Lenard Sowah, Nikoly Todorov, Sam Nicholson, Perry Kitchen, Gavin Reilly, Callumn Morrison................fucking hell thats a lot !!!

 

Players in   : Chistophe Berra, Rafal Grzelak, Kyle Lafferty, Ashley Smith-Brown, Cole Stockton

 

Good experience added in Berra and Lafferty and this could proove a coupple of good signings for Cathro, rumours abound that Walker is on the way to Ibrox has not gone away and Hearts fans will be wanting the season to start to end that specualtion.

Final position - 3rd

Last season - 5th

 

 

 

 

Hibernian - Think Hibs could potentially be a surprise package this season, like Hearts a few seasons ago they are a team on the up and Lennon has that experience of getting his team ready for the challenge ahead..........large number of players have left the club so going to copy and paste ( taking effing ages with the large numbers !!

 

Players out :

3 July 2017 Callum Donaldson Loan[136] 3 July 2017 Kevin Waugh       30 June 2017 Chris Humphrey       3 July 2017 Jordon Forster     23 June 2017 Scott Gallacher       1 June 2017 James Keatings       11 July 2017 Aaron Dunsmore     6 July 2017 Lewis Allan       6 July 2017 Sean Mackie       19 June 2017 Alex Harris   31 May 2017 Brian McLean 31 May 2017 Grant Holt   31 May 2017 Jamie Insall     31 May 2017 Fraser Fyvie

 

Players in :

  Efe Ambrose   Ofir Marciano   Simon Murray   Steven Whittaker   Danny Swanson

 

Final position - 5th

Last season - Championship winners

 

 

 

 

Kilmarnock - Another team who I think will be in the battle at the bottom and big Jig realy has a big job on his hands. Its a toss up between a few teams at the bottom and Killie are one of those teams.

 

Players out : Jack Whittaker, Aaron Splaine

 

Players in   : Callum Watters, Kirk Broadfoot, Daniel Higgins, Alan Power, Stephen O'Donnel, Dom Thomas

Final Position -  11th

Last season - 8th

 

 

 

Motherwell - Another team with a large number of players in and out, bit of an unknown really for Motherwell as they have a lot of new players but surely they will perform better than the last lot.

 

Players out : Craig Moore, David Ferguson, Lee Lucas, Stephen Pearson, Scott McDonald, Joe Chalmers, Dom Thomas, Dylan Macklin, Lionel Ainsworth, Keith Lasley, Craig Samson

 

Players in   : Gael Bigirimana, Andy Rose, Russel Griffiths, Trevor Carson, Alex Fisher, Cedric Kipre, Charles Dunne, Craig Tanner

Final position - 10th

Last season - 9th

 

 

 

Partick Thistle - Thought Thistle were excellent last year and really hope they can push on but a lot of the teams round about them have imroved the playing side so can they show the same levels of good football they were playing. Lost a few guys in and around the first team and only 3 brought in so far.

 

Players out : Liam Lindsay, David Amoo, Ade Azeez, David Wilson, Sean Welsh, Mark Ridgers

 

Players in   : Blair Spittal, Jamie Sneddon, Nial Keown

Final position - 7th

Last season - 6th

 

 

 

 

Rangers - Already knocked out of Europe in arguably the clubs worst result in history but things are perhaps looking on the up at Ibrox, Pedro remains in charge with a half and half support for him. The board have backed him in the transfer market but Rangers do need 1 or 2 options up top.......whether they get those players in remains to be seen.

 

Players out : Clint Hill, Phillipe Sendeross, Barrie Mckay, Joey Garner, Andy Halliday

 

Players in   : Bruno Alves, Ryan Jack, Dalcio, Daniel Candeias, Carlos Pena, Alfredo Morelos, Graham Dorrans, Eduardo Herrera, Fabio Cardoso

 

A number of unknowns being brought in so difficult to gauge how they will cope with the rough and tumble of our league, Jack and Alves aside.

Final position - 2nd

Last season - 3rd

 

 

 

 

Ross County - Have been good performers the last few seasons but they have lost a of goals in the shape of Boyce, who is going to fill that massive void. Scoring over 20 goals at such a small club in Scotland is no mean feat and difficult to find another who will on the budget they have.

 

Players out :  Liam Boyce, Paul Quinn, Jonathan Franks, Oscar Gobern, Ian Mchsane

 

Players in   : Sean Kelly, Jamie Lindsay, Thomas Mikkelsen

Final position - 9th

Last season - 7th

 

 

 

 

St Johnstone - Have been great the last few seasons and they may do better than I think, Tommy Wright has them well organised and they can knock the ball around well but I feel there is a lot for them to contend with this season. Can they equal or better the 4th spot they managed last season ? Yeah they can equal it but it will be difficult as a lot of competition around that part of the table.

 

Players out : Tam Scobbie, Danny Swanson, Michael Coulsen

 

Players in   : Kyle Mclean, Scott Tanser, Stefan Scougal

Final positon - 6th

Last season - 4th

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


             

 


Adding of titles

08 July 2017 - 09:42 AM

We all know of the hysteria going on of opposition fans regarding Rangers and stripping of titles but I just read something quite interesting on facebook.

Seems a group are trying to start a campaign where titles won during the second world war are made official, Rangers would then not only have 61 league titles but also be the first team to achieve 9iar......not once but twice !!!

Now I already knew this but the next part I did not.......all titles won during the first world war were official !!
Celtic in that case would be on going for titles number 40 this season !

I know its a little bit of fun but it does raise the question why it counts for one war but not the second. I know players etc signed up to fight but so too did others in 1914.

Who is in the wrong

06 July 2017 - 05:22 PM

Hope this works as im on my phone ut here is a link to a video doing the rounds if a bike and lorry colliding.

Now IMO the artic is very much in the wrong, ok all the cyclists are in the wrong lane but that doesnt mean you can just ignore them and endanger their lives.

Some people.are saying its in his blind spot and while I agree when they are static he cant see them but once the light changes the bike is in front of the truck and the driver clearly sees him......if he doesnt then why the fuck does he stop after he hits him IF the bike is still in the blind spot.

With the news today about the BTC and Rangers will the HMRC now go after the mega millions allegedly used by some of the big spenders in England. Could be a little harder to track down the money in England as quite simply there is quite a of it to keep tabs on and the numbers of players must be a far higher number than those Rangers were involved with............will this cost a hell of a lot more to put together ? Lets not forget HMRC did lose its original case against Rangers, a similar scenario could prove rather costly.

 

Which teams in England will maybe be sweating a little over the news, Arsenal, Liverpool, Spurs. Anyone else ?
