I’ve never cried after a Rangers success T78. It was just always expected that we would be successful.

After this journey, I’ll be in floods of tears when we get 55 :D
4 of us watching the game on Thursday, I asked the question what would be bigger 9 in a row or 55? Was a 50:50 split. I’m of the opinion 55 will be bigger.

Would be interested in what the forum consensus was. How do you start a poll?

More surely? 4 in a month so far is it not ?
I was thinking that after I posted, I couldn’t find what the Rangers or league record is for midfielder goals in a season, but whatever it is he has the potential to challenge for it.

Aribo is a class act a quality midfielder and I'm so glad we managed to sign him in fact fair play to Gerrard/Allen/the board what a coup.

I haven't been this excited watching a midfielder player in our team for years this is probably going back to the days of Ferguson/GVB/Albertz/Arteta/DeBoer.

Around 5 replies to this thread make comments about how much money he will make us. Seriously fcuks me off reading this about our players time after time.

Is it just me that wants to enjoy the player and concentrate on what an immense talent he is and what he brings to the team?

Is this fascination on his future sell fee down to the fact that the tarrier needs to punt a player every year just to keep the lights on?

I for one hope that he is here for a very long time. What happens in the future will take care of itself. Obviously we are a selling club but surely we can park that chat every time we secure the services of genuine talent?
Agree entirely !

He could be just as important to us this season as Tav and Morelos.

The way he;s started his Gers career, we won't have him any longer than 2 seasons at the absolute most.

That’s a good shout actually. 9 in a row was massive because it got a big monkey off of our backs, but given the problems we have had in recent years, and at one stage not even being sure we would still have our club, I’m still clear that 55 does it for me DR.

Not sure how to set up the poll mate. Sorry :cool:

Should have been 10 , we threw that away

A classy footballer. He'll get between 15-20 goals this season. However, it won't be long until he's a target for the SPFL hatchet men.

Through our history, whenever a player comes in you can usually compare his style, gait, talent etc with a player from the past. For example I look at Glen Kamara and see hints of Reyna. Barry Ferguson when he first came in had a wee bit of Durrant about him.

I don’t think I can definitively compare Aribo to anyone I’ve seen at Rangers before. There’s maybe a wee bit of Miko in there but a helluva lot better. A wee bit of Albertz, Van Bronckhorst perhaps, but he’s certainly unique.

Will go down as one of our best value signings ever, an absolute steal an a joy to watch. Will have a great career and we should enjoy it while we have him.

Said it at the time. You guys got an absolute bargain there and will make a decent sum when cashing in on him be in next summer or 3 summers from now. He’s a terrific player and will probably be one of the top 3 players in the league this season

Better than Miko?
That's quite a statement after half a dozen games.
Let's not get carried away here.

He has a bit to go before he matches Miko imho.
Let's just enjoy his talent and let him flourish in a Rangers jersey without burdening the boy with outlandish comparisons.
It’s hardly outlandish, I’m no comparing him to Laudrup ffs :)).

I’m not sure which Miko you watched but I’d say Aribo looks a level or 2 above him on evidence so far.

What evidence though? A few games against European minnows and the mighty Killie, Hibs and East Fife.
Hardly a basis for comparison with a guy who won titles in three countries, played in major international finals and was voted 3rd best player in Europe in 1988.

The time for such comparisons is certainly not now!

How could I possibly compare personal footballing achievements? I’m saying at this moment and time Aribo looks to have better natural talent and ability than mikhailichenko did. That’s all!

Aribo has won nowt and has looked decent in half a dozen games against mediocre opposition. Here's what Miko achieved

Dynamo Kyiv
Sampdoria
Rangers
International
Soviet Union

FFS how many times. Read Ma bloody posts.

At this juncture I’m saying Aribo looks better technically and naturally than Miko did, I’m not comparing achievements. How could I possibly do that??

IN MY OPINION JOE ARIBO HAS SIMILARITIES TO THE STYLE AND GAIT OF MIKHAILICHENKO BUT AGAIN, IN MY OPINION, ARIBO LOOKS TO BE EVEN BETTER!!

Miko was a Rolls Royce of a player who was played out of position at Rangers and we didn't get the best out of him. He was technically excellent as were almost all the Kiev team he played in.
