Hopefully it's a team full of guys like Hagi.
Guys who have no more than 4 letters in their name so that all of our fans, even the lurkers in here, have a chance to spell their name correctly.
And on that basis we really need to get rid of that guy Maroles.

To be fair the op did say ‘for a bit of fun’.
Whilst you may not agree with him and FF is in my eyes at least,a mainly Protestant and unionist democratic football board( even just by our values surely) ;

Go easy lads if you will please

Squad depth has continued to be our issue imo, or more quality squad depth, think I read that our games played up until the break was ridiculous compared to most, and our ability to rotate with similar quality to the starting 11 remains poor.

A good start has been made starting to address this by the players leaving. RW & SG need to strengthen with quality and not guys like Barker etc.

As well as quality we need diversity, I agree that a no nonsense midfielder maybe a good purchase because at times we might need that. Who the players are I have no idea but I have all the faith in the management to bring them in and stop that rabble going for 9.75 in a row.

Under the mantra of 2 quality players per position, I'd be looking at:

McGregor/Firth (McCrorie for an SPL Loan)

Tav/Patterson
Goldson/Katic
Helander/Edmondson
Barisic/***NEW*** (take Douglas if cheap fee/wages)

*** NewKamera***/Jack
***New star midfielder*** (must be someone down Croatia way) /Davis

Murphy / Stewart
Hagi/Aribo
Kent/***New*** (unless Kennedy or mcpake are judged to be ready)

***NewMorelos*** (maric or other quality from down Croatia way) /***new*** (not gonna lie, would takes dykes as an option) /defoe

This of course is under the assumption we sell Kamera for ~10m and Morelos for ~25m. If not they'd keep their first XI spots. And I'd let Barker, Polster, and probably even Jones. It also assumes that lockdown will have proved a good leveler for Murphy (who scored 7 in 10 outings since January, good regardless of the low level) and might just be back if allowed to get some gamee time. Now or never but trust the coaches to make the call.

Total guesswork tbh. I think Hagi and 1 more quality creative player would be great, even at centre mid.

We simply cant continue with Tav. He cant defend and he will never be a leader on the park. He should be punted at the first opportunity we get. He is nothing more than a serial loser

Bit of fun. We've started getting linked to a few players and some more will inevitably leave. What would a title winning first 11 look like for you next season?



McGregor

New. Helander. New. Barisic


Fer Jack
Hagi

Vydra Kent
Maric.


Can see Morelos and Kamara going to generate funds. Tav a maybe to go too. Fer is a free and a big solid unit who can play. Need a goal new threat from the right. Maric is 6'3 and top scored in Croatia 2 seasons running. Vydra would have been inspired and hopefully we can get him now. Leader at the back with a bit of pace and experience required. Helander is excellent positionally but lacks pace. Needs some legs next to him. Goldson is ok and rarely injured but I'd like a driving force in the team be it centre half or centre mid.

Meling and Chrivella are good bosman options and have quality to challlenge for a place at LB and CM. Daniel Schwabb at PSV could be the experienced centre back (also a bosman).

Bit of fun before someone says I'll just wait and see what the manager/DOF have lined up!
“Fer Hagi Jack”.
I’m sure that was a French song I learned at school.

Big unit in midfield? Where the Fvck do you start with this patter
Fer was very good against us. Physical, can play on the deck and a threat from corners. He's free, experienced without being over the hill, had pedigree with good sides. Just a suggestion and like I said, not to be taken too seriously!

It still absolutely staggers me how little grasp of fiscal or football reality some Rangers fans have.
My wee line up has Tav, Goldson and Morelos sold along with squad fillers who offer nothing, and mainly looks at bosmans and players we have previously been linked to. Bit of fun mate nobody has put Messi up top yet!

Right so sell Tav and replace him with some unidentified 'winner' right back (would love to hear everyones suggestions), that's our problems solved?

Who becomes captain? Jack? McGregor?
Are they going to shout more than they do just now? Are people going to start listening to then more if they're captain?

The only way to solve the captain problem is if we go and buy someone worthy of being captain.

We have the best right back in the league! Let's put our resources into improving positions that actually need strengthened! Or is that a stupid idea?

Hagi, right winger/forward, a centre mid and a 3rd choice striker. Obviously everything changes if we get a good offer for morelos.

For the first eleven, we need ST RW CM at minimum. Beyond that, probably another one of each and left back cover.

Best right back in the league ???. He is the best liability in the league

In the spirit of the thread here’s some players that would possibly be obtainable should we sell Alfie and any one or two of Kamara,Tav,Jones or Borna.

J. Svenson (year left on his deal at AZ) RB
Meling (contract ends in December at Rosenberg) LB
Fer (bosman)
Linssen (bosman)
Hagi (4.3million)
Prevljak (2 years left at RB Salzburg)

The one position I just haven’t any idea about is DM,ideally someone like the Braga skipper.
But players like him are under long contracts and simply out of our reach.
I like McNair but not sure if Boro would price him out of a move,even if we offered Jones plus cash.

Incredibly tough ask for our staff to get quality needed in that area through the door.

New RB New CB Helander Barisic
Jack New CM
New RW Hagi New LW
New ST
Similar to my thoughts although I'd still have Kent at LW, at least to start off with.

If we sign Hagi though we simply have to go with the 4-2-3-1 shape, pointless otherwise.

The only way Tav will not be both Captain and our first start RB will be if we sell him.

As much as I'd much prefer someone else in, l can't see SG playing him from the bench and removing the captaincy from him while he's still at the Club.
