Can we remind ourselves at this moment.

We have a squad of talented international footballers that with everyone fit would have several of them sitting in the stand.

It should bear no resemblance to McCoist against part timers, Warburton or Murty.

Or even Pedro, pretending Bates Declan and Windass were the future.

Steven Gerrard and Michael Beale dragged us from those days to this very point.

It is shameful what the last few weeks have looked like. An absolute farce up against absolute nobodies and looking like we cant get a shot at goal.

Panning Gerrard and Beale for stuff whilst he was still stuck with some of the jobbers in the early days is pathetic.

They went unbeaten, they had an error strewn start to season 4 but clearly had a team that should be getting near 100 points every year.

Lets hope we quickly return to that, the lack of fitness certainly wont be overnight but the horrendous football patterns shouldnt last long.

I was actually thinking that, amongst the suit of this season it’s easy to forget that we went unbeaten in the league not that long ago. Sure the team is older but with a few additions and some better tactics we can challenge.

Permanent managers don’t get appointed ‘until the end of the season’ ffs.

Rangers have had 17 permanent managers:

Wilton
Struth
Symon
White
Waddell
Wallace
Greig
Souness
Smith
Advocaat
McLeish
Le Guen
McCoist
Warburton
Pedro
Gerrard
Gio

That’s it. End of story. Thank you and goodnight. FACT.

:))
5 managers in a 100 years. 12 in the next 50. Wow. And both Wallace and Smith had 2 spells.

Must be from all that SPL TV cash and prize money. And all the rewards from long European runs.

Where they find it I'll never know.
They sold players for the same value.

Unlike us they had a good balance sheet before that and could reinvest the entire lot in new players.

He has spent almost nothing net.

Sadly we aren’t in the same position for a number of reasons

Didn't chris jack article posted late afternoon today mention " on the eve of Michael beales appointment"

That for me would be an indication of the timescale fir the appointment

They sold players for about £50m and he has spent about £45m

They can spend that cause they normally run at a profit. They don't need investors loans etc
Genuine question. Why are they profitable and we rely on millions of loans? In a year, say they'd won the league, and us 2nd. Not mega differing prize money. They make maybe an additional £4m from more season book sales. Merchandise can't be hugely different?

On the money!
A quick mental counting up there (so probably wrong haha) I make it 99 points from Gerrards last 38 league games in charge. Get back to that level we'll not be too far wrong

Again, he’s never hidden his desire to manage Rangers and QPR have apparently been made aware of that since day one.

He’s just turned down the Wolves job with £60m to spend and a hotline to Jorge Mendes, his integrity isn’t in question.
His chat about how they wouldn’t have let a lead slip while Gio was still there definitely wasn’t a classy move though.

They’ve had almost a 7 year run on us that’s why

I think a lot to do with it is when we returned to the top tier we had very few players capable of being part of a contending squad. We've had to build that without having anybody we were able to sell to fund it. Add in the payouts to Ashley and disaster with Pedro etc too.

Meanwhile in that time they have had a couple trips to CL group stage and sold a good few guys for excellent money.

The big thing is they've sold regularly. We've had two windows of selling.

So they've been stockpiling cash? %^*&, they were paying cunts like Brown almost £40,000 a week.
No not stockpiling, but they didn’t have to spend millions when we weren’t in the league, they’ve had champions league campaigns when we weren’t there

They weren't champions leaguing it every year.
And the season ticket sales at the Sty took a hit when we were gone. And the Rodgers wage , Brown etc were meaty.
But in present day, barring a monster sale on either side or CL money, we should be about £4m behind them (season book extra money)?

No, I do get what he meant by it, but you can guarantee anything with any of our players when they come back from a break.

Because they didn't need to rebuild their club over the laat decade after it was ripped to bits by a load of scumbags.

Why do people still not understand that?

They’ve had 3 seasons since 2012 that they haven’t had a big sale.

Looking forward to seeing what Beale can do for Tilman's development.
I expect his fitness will improve along with the rest of the squad and that'll give him a boost.
That's a great point, he was one that had slipped my mind. Could be the making of him.

He'll definitely be a very hands on manager, its in his DNA. It will be interesting to see who he brings in as his number 2 and general background staff.

Because they didn't need to rebuild their club over the laat decade after it was ripped to bits by a load of scumbags.

Why do people still not understand that?

They're typically get the same people who will find issue with the fact it took two years to turn around the team and structure and win the league the next and the same who will automatically put down 55 as being won "because that lot was pish".

Ultimately, because it doesn't fit their grievance desire.

There will also some of them that are high post count mockits incognito. They're too obsessed with us not to want to stir things from the background and there will be some here.

Yes he was, was interim after Pedro was sacked then was made full time manager on December 2017.

Will never forget that press conference, specky sitting there grinning away, looking satisfied at having shuffled his spreadsheets into alignment.
Mark Allen clearly in the huff thinking it was a complete shitshow and looking like he's ready to chuck it.

At least now specky has someone to work with on his wavelength. Unfortunately that's not good news for us.

Previous posts in other page previous mentioning Beale not bringing my of his current backroom with him?

I’d expected at least his assistant

Prior to this year their transfer dealings over the last decade had them about €50m in profit.

Then as you say they had the CL money a couple of times.

They had over 20m cash in the bank at one point as well in recent years

They’ll be wanting to sort out a backroom team as well. Will be another reason why it’s not happened as quickly as folk are expecting. For me, if he’s able to bring some of the old crew back (Culshaw, etc), it’d be a massive plus.

Why? He was already at QPR when Beale went there, it’s not like he actually has his own team like other managers do.

You make it sound like they are up on transfer since he came in, they’re not, net they’ve spent around £15m, they’re fortunate they’ve been a stable club for years whilst our rebuild from 2012 still continues

They could spend the Ajer and Edouard money whilst we’ve not been able to do same with our windfall

Beale will need to work a small miracle to be honest

That’s not even to have a go at anyone it’s just the state of both clubs sadly

Folk seem to believe that cause we got back up the league everything returned to normal, a lot of fans forget we are still in recovery to an extent
