No one is saying we stop improving, but your continually saying they are past their best yet both had arguably their best ever season in a blue shirt, no?Glad you all enjoy sharing my thoughts.
I think we all accept Defoe will not be a regular next season (?).
Greegs is 39, he will be 40 before the end of the season. He had a great season last season.
Davis is 36, he'll be 37 at the turn of the year. He had a great season last season.
My point is at what point do they stop playing? They are past their best physically.
Should we keep playing them until they start effing things up? It's always better to leave on a high.
We need to keep improving as a team, season on season
I'll repeat there is no room for sentimentality. Thanks guys, but time to move on.
Klos was our first choice purchase but contractual issues stopped us from signing him. He bought out his own contract eventually I think. Klos was always signed as first choice regardless of who had the jersey at the time.Klos from Charbonnier (I know Klos was signed to be first choice as Charbonnier was injured but I think many thought Klos would be second choice to Charbonnier once the Frenchman was fit).
Alexander to McGregor. Again more of a circumstances thing than a back up to first choice. After Bevygate Alexander took over for the rest of the season. Did Alexander not hang around for the Brechin game in 2012 too?
Was Simonsen not a back up to Cammy Bell? again an injury ruled Bell out but he never regained his place.

When they start showing signs of their standard dropping perhaps?I agree. I could have said the same a year ago.
But I'll repeat again, when do you stop playing them?
When you find someone better I suppose?
When they start showing signs of their standard dropping perhaps?
McGregor was as good last season as I’ve ever seen him, and you want him dropped. Absolute fucking madness
McGregor dropping standards is still better than McLaughlin btw.Not if you want Rangers to be successful.
No successful club, business or individual waits for standards to drop before making changes.
McGregor was good last season, I would say very good. Will he be very good next season?
Put it another way, if Rangers were to sign a 39-40 year old keeper as our No 1 for next season would you be impressed?
McGregor and Davis are two of our best players, and two of the standouts in scotland. We stop playing them when that changes.Yes they did, and not arguably either, they had outstanding seasons and played a very important part in winning 55. And that will never be forgotten.
But we move on, we have to. Every player has his shelf life, his limits if you like.
We cannot allow failure to be a driver, success is the driver. Success allows us to bring in better.
