Has this been a good season for us?

Theres an argument that qualifying for the Europa League was as monumental an achievement as winning anything.

But you dont get a trophy for it.

We look so capable at times.

We underachieved after pumping Celtic

We got zero breaks in any game we needed it

No, it hasn't. We've fucked too many games up for it to be considered "good". It is however an improvement which is something. Some absolutely atrocious performances. Despite the fact I want Gerrard to succeed so badly at times he has looked no better than the previous management and needs massive improvement.

Throwing the same games away we did this season last season won't be acceptable.

Of course it’s not being a good season, a club like ours winning zero trophies can never be called a good season and anyone thinking otherwise has an extremely low expectation level for a Rangers supporter.

The fact that we're having this discussion again on a weekend where we ought to be playing at Hampden illustrates that it hasn't been a good season by a fair distance.

There have been positives, but we expect better.

As far as Europe was concerned. It was a superb achievement considering where we started from.

Domestically? Been a let down to be honest. Wasn't expecting the league title but thought we could have taken a cup at least. Being nowhere near either is massively disappointing. Even worse when it's to the same opposition.

Satisfactory. Definetly fell short on our cup progression but weighed out by a great European run.

Judging by this thread we are no better off than we were 3 years ago when we made the Scottish cup final.

No. Domestically, it can't be viewed as anything other than a disappointment, with the 2 cup defeats from sheep representing the biggest boot in the baws.

Howevet, there is progress for those who want to see it and don't get carried away with the negativity. Good and unexpected Euro run, much more competitive in OF games, a decent spine of the squad installed and at long last, we've comfortably established a gap to the rest.

Gerrard's performance as boss has een a mixed bag. I'm hoping that this is the season he needs to figure out the league, make his mistakes on the job and pinpoint exactly who and what we need to take the next step and actually start winning trophies again next season. Still got faith that he's the right man for us and his will and determination to succeed will see us come good.

And regardless of the above, you know what would be most welcome? 5 straight wins to finish the season. Still wouldn't be enough but would put some doubt into the minds of the mhankies and let them know that they'll be in for a proper challenge next year.

Better than the previous two seasons by a long distance but, at the same time, frustrating in that imo we had every opportunity to win the title. We had all the momentum after the January break and blew it completely that night down at Killie. Imo that was the game that cost us and it gave them a cushion. Gerrard gambled by not restarting with the same team that had done that mob at Ibrox in December. It's been a better season but Gerrard's inexperience cost us. I still think he is the right man and I just hope he has learned a lot from the season.

We have made huge strides this year, as have a few other teams in the league (a lot of people forget that). The tramps however have stood still. If we had a bit of consistency this year we could have had the title wrapped up

If you were stoating about calling the Europa league an inferior competition after last autumn then Rangers or football isn't for you!
So your goal isn’t the champions league ?? It’s mine . I don’t want second best whether it’s the league position or European competition. And in answer to your comment , if you are happy being second to the beasts then maybe supporting Rangers is not the club for you

People keep answering an unasked question, for this thread.

Has there been improvement, absolutely, no doubt whatsoever.

However has it been a good season. I think most people at the start talked about second and a cup win being a good season. Second, fair enough, but not even a cup final, and put out by Aberdeen in both cups.

Is that really a good season, by Rangers' standards.
 

Danger Zone

Just the tip...
Nope. Europe was superb but its been disappointing overall. Struggling to beat the same sides again and again, papped out both cups in embarrassing fashion so not even a sniff of a cup final.

I’ve seen some valiant attempts to dress it up as being something more than it is, but of we’re honest it’s been crap.

Nothing's going to take away the joy of beating the tramps in December, but the pain of the Cup defeats and the needless dropped points is so f#cking frustrating. Deep down I expected a wee bit better than what we got.

What you thinking, guys..?
What am I thinking?

I'm thinking it's been fucking horrendous!

Watching a Celtic team that was there for the taking romp to another title and probably a treble treble can't be described as anything else.

Group stages of the lesser inferior trophy , I wouldn’t say it was a great run
Iirc no team with that many qualifiers had made it to that stage in the competition before us. We made it with a team who at the beginning didn't know each other at all.

In a season immediately following a reset of manager and most of the squad you can't really demand anything. It was a great run.

Not in the slightest. Yes, we qualified for the group stages of the UEFA, but let's be honest, we blew it after a great start.
Domestically, we've experienced the same failings that have plagued us since we've been back. Our cup performance has been disgraceful.
Almost any other manager would get slaughtered for our overall performance this season.
I've been looking back over the season this last week with my blue tinted specs off. No cup finals and out of the title race by March. Nowhere near good enough.

No. I think Steven Gerrard gets a free pass since its his first attempt and he took us on a good run in Europe. I take no comfort from beating ceptic on the 1 occasion as we haven't progressed from there.

Next season is huge and will either be the making or breaking of the manager. The one thing that concerns me is that the dhims have money to burn and I think they'll go all in to bring them 10. If we don't start the season well I fear for us. Yes we can build on this season but that lot will likely throw the kitchen sink at it.

Decent run in europe, domestically another disaster, if Gerrard doesn't win a trophy next season he will be gone.

No I don't think it has been. Another season where we have won feck all and the bheasts will probably win the treble again is not a good season by any stretch of the imagination.

I don’t agree that the yahoos have money to burn, they have a whopping wage bill they need to service .

If they had not sold Dumbelee and without champions league football ball, they would have been showing a loss financially.

People are desperate to sugar coat the season as good, but reality suggests otherwise. Domestically we’ve been really poor & Europe we conspired against ourselves in the group stages.

Since December 29th we pretty much failed to show what we can do until the second half of 31st March.

So the season hasn’t been good IMO

They were ravaged by problems off the field this season and we've still failed to capitalise.

This was a great chance to get 55 and I just hope they are still as frugal with their spending next season. I have a feeling they'll go for it unfortunately.
If we have another poor season, Gerrard will be gone and we'll be looking at trying to stop 10 in a row with a new manager.

I think we've got just about what we should have reasonably expected back in the summer. Alot more in terms of Europe, but that's evened out by struggling to beat Aberdeen Hibs and Killie.

We're a better team than last season, but we still need quite a few bumps ironed out.

Looking forward to seeing what/who the summer brings.
