Lurking tarriers will be pissing themselves at his post. The best team in the league who toiled against pretty much every team they faced after New Year? Yeah we don’t exactly have an even playing field but that’s still delusional nonsense.
You quoted the wrong post?

I don’t mention us being the best team in the league.

The fact is they don’t need to sign anybody.

We had a much better team than them this year and they still ran away with it(literally)

They can’t lose over a season with so much in their favour

media, refs, authorities.

the game is sewn up.
We didn't have a better team at all. We won nothing. Couldn't get to a Scottish cup final fs. Bottom of the league Hearts??

He'll be comfortable against 99% of team in Scotland and absolutely destroyed in Europe. His hatred of us will shine though and he'll raise his game when he comes up against us. Target his weaknesses and he will be put under pressure.

Dont think anyone will be making 5-6 big signings in this climate
Agree it is a big ask in the current climate but if we are serious about winning the title we need far better quality, both within starting 11 and squad.

And thats before we consider the possibility of losing 2 or 3, like Kamara, Barasic and Alfie.

Hopefully Arsenal or Leicester come calling. We need rid of that lady's front bottom. He’s far too good for this league. His movement destroys the diddy teams.
i don’t see it. He will be gone next summer. There’s no chance lawell will be stupid enough to sell with what’s at stake this season . Unless it’s 30 mil plus he’s there main striker this season

Good move for him.

He will be able to act like a big lump of wood and boot every player in site without fear of receiving a yellow or red card in that jersey.

We need to change tactics if he signs for them. Would be good to see us sign a quick athletic striker who can run the channels. McKenna wants to play against physical strikers like Alfie who play with their back to him. Looks like if they sign him that they've done so on the back of his performances against us where he's been allowed to get away with just about anything to stop Alfie. We need to mix it up in attack and stop making it so easy for defending teams. Maybe the rumoured signing of the lad from Charlton will help.

Morelos is brilliant at running the channels as well as mixing it up. He’s absolutely not just a battering ram / physical striker. He’s scored plenty goals v Aberdeen & McKenna although I do agree McKenna seems to play him better than anyone in the league.

He’s got more than a few mistakes in him. He’s a back to the wall defender and not really suited to the tarriers.

I hope they pay a few quid for him, and he ends up like Hendry.

Obviously buying him for the Champions league group games. Be interesting to see how he gets on against players like Lewandowski, Messi, Firmino etc

Ajer dumps his agent and the McKenna rumours surface in the space of a few days?

Expect this is the start of a fair bit of downsizing over the next few months. A £60m a year wage bill is completely unsustainable next season in Scottish football.
Correct, follow the money, follow the money. They have totally written us of before a ball has been kicked. They assume we are downsizing and therefore they too can easily downsize. The problem is that if they sign cheap crap, you get cheap crap players. Liewwell will get what is coming to him soon. Bring it on!!!

Perhaps this is where TLB starts to fu(k things up. Inherited a good squad and style from the Rodgers days but the more he puts his own stamp on the team the worse it will surely get.

The delusion in this comment is quite extraordinary
Actually, there is an element of realism in what he said. At the mid-season break, Rangers were, it's no exaggeration to say, the best team in the SPL. We were top of the table, had outplayed the yahoos both at the piggery and at Hampden, and with a few astute signngs during the winter window, I really believed we'd be in a strong position to take the title.

But something very strange happened when the season resumed - a different Rangers team showed up, one that struggled even to beat teams that were themselves struggling to avoid relegation. To date, I've never heard a convincing explanation from the manager or his staff as to why this bizarre implosion in form took place.

I don't believe we'll see a huge influx of new players -just a few at best, therefore we will be going into next season with substantially the same squad as last. It's vital that we find answers to the aforementioned question, for unless we do, the REALITY is they're probably on target to win ten-in-row. It's not an issue of whether Mc Kenna does or doesn't sign for them - Rangers season will be determined by what they do to put things right in their own house.

I don’t know what’s worse. The insinuation that we’re the better team or his misuse of the word ‘literally’.
Let me explain what I meant since your incapable of comprehending what I assumed was a fairly easy point to understand.

They literally ran away with the league due to them being handed it by their placemen.

Rangers have a better team than Celtic, as is evidenced in the matches between the two sides this season and if that’s not enough for you then it’s also evidenced in how far we’ve got in Europe.

Hope you manage to understand and I hope I’ve not misused any words for you.

You’re right that the league was won off the park but let’s take some responsibility and stop acting the fucking victim and realise it was no one but our own doing that we ended up 13 points behind due to some pathetic post winter break performances

Although we played poorly in these games we were robbed of at least 4 points that I can think of.

All championship winning teams will have poor runs of form and they will still manage to scrape a result here or there.

unfortunately for us that’s highly unlikely when you’re playing against 11 hatchet men, referee, linesmen, media and commentators.

odds are hugely stacked against us.

To simply ignore this and continually put the blame at our club is not for me.

Each to their own.

We were 2nd and had already lost the first trophy of the season.

You still can’t grasp the correct use of the word ‘literally’ in that context which is an unfortunate thing a second time round. The better team is the one who wins the league by consistently beating the majority of the sides in the league to amass a greater points total, not head to heads, it’s the team who wins the silverware, not head to heads.

Lets look at head to heads anyway, we played them 3 times this season, we lost twice and won once; so errrr.......great point about Europe too; it’s good to know that when we finished in 3rd place under McLeish we were still the best team in the land due to making the CL last 16, fantastic.

Your post was a tad embarrassing, delusional and would have had lurkers in hysterics. I hope my post was succinct and coherent enough for you to follow. Don’t worry about yours, I understand them just fine, unfortunately.

I fully understand the meaning of the word perhaps it’s you who doesn’t.

Can you elaborate on why my post was delusional?

Yes we played Bheast FC 3 times you are correct. We were cheated on 2 occasions. A blind man could see who the better team was and incase you missed my point about Europe where the refs are more professional...who was the better team there?

You must be very insecure if you allow somebody else’s post on a football message board to embarrass you especially if you’re reason for embarrassment is that “lurkers will be laughing at us”

Fingers crossed this one happens.

A downgrade for sure.

He’ll do alright domestically but will struggle in European competiton.

Are you kidding me on? I’ve just given you a detailed post that clearly explains why it’s nonsense. We were cheated twice in OF games? My mind must be playing tricks on me, I remember us getting a rough time in the cup final and generally playing like shit at Ibrox.

No I understood your points about Europe, where ironically we also had some awful decisions go against us. But it’s a load of bollocks for the example I gave you, were we the best side in the land when McLeish had us finish third behind the scum and Hearts?

Why on earth would that suggest insecurity? I’d rather not give tarriers easy ammunition that’s all, I think that’s perfectly normal if anything. As for actually discussing the post, well it is a discussion forum, but the bottom lien is, if we were winning everything and they made a similar statement, we’d be pissing ourselves laughing on here, and in fact that is how it went at times in the 90’s. The best team in the league isn’t based on head to head, it’s based on the team who amasses the greater points total by playing all of the leagues sides; that’s the only bit that matters and the bit you need to grasp mate.
