It’s easily the best Rangers side to watch since Advocaat.
I've moaned about us being too static in possession for many years, always been a bugbear of mine.And that’s us just got Aribo & Roofe match fit, so we are going to get better.
We are the best team in this country by a mile.
The movement is just way ahead of every other team & it’s almost impossible to stop.
I've moaned about us being too static in possession for many years, always been a bugbear of mine.
But look at us now, everybody's hungry and looking for the ball, running into space and constantly changing positions, it's incredible to watch.
Some of the passing, moving and general dominance put me in mind of the Harlem Globetrotters today!
I thought today the sheep were the best organised team we have faced in the league. They matched more of our off the ball movement than anyone else has so far. I don't think they lost anything from the players who were out. I see that as the best they can play.
They still got pumped.
Embarrassment of riches sums this team up at the moment. Our 2nd X1 would finish runners up for the league. Ah well, I'm sure the rest will get over it.
this is the best thing for me. At times last season I would ask myself why Gerrard was watching what we all were, and couldn't seem to address the way we'd be so pedestrian and predictable in possession.Gerrard and the coaching team have clearly learned from last season and have used the time away to really address the issues and we are thriving.
Firstly we now have the level of depth needed to maintain the high standards for the entire season. If we have 4 or 5 players out or players go off form it is not big deal because we have quality replacements that fit seamlessly into the system and are desperate to get a starting place.
Defensively we have improved dramatically, it starts with our front 3 who are as hard working as any in the league and press to immediately get the ball back. If teams break on us we tactical foul and stop them getting near our goal.
The other huge improvement is we are no longer relying on Morelos, previously our entire system was built around him and when he went off form we struggled. Now Morelos is playing almost a Firminho role where he drops deep allowing our other forwards and midfielders to run in behind. Teams can no longer just park the bus because they cannot cope with the rotation and movement and we are now regularly getting goals throughout the team.
I agree this is the most exciting team since the McLeish treble season but the big difference is this is still a young team that will just get better and better
Totally agree but more to the point I need to know how you’re getting in to matches ya bassAgree completely.
The work rate, the transitions, the pressing, the rotation up front, the passing in midfield, it’s an absolute joy to watch this side. And I haven’t even mentioned our defence.
For the first time since Advocaat’s days, I’m going into matches knowing we’re going to win. Not hoping, knowing.
