This thread is all that’s wrong with too many rangers fans these days. We have to take it on the chin but Celtic are light years ahead of us on and off the park. The continual quotes of “They are not that good” makes me laugh. They have a team of serial winners with the added quality of julien, McGregor and edouard running through the spine of their team. Throw in Christie, and to a lesser degree Forrest but they change quality with quality something we might not be able to do due to the lack of income over the previous 8 years.The Tim's are actually not as good as they are made out to be. We could all see it before the winter break yet other teams couldn't / wouldn't act on it. They are the same team now as they were then albeit with 2 up front since coming back from the winter break. Even though they shouldn't have the option to go 2 up front as griffiths stamp should definitely have seen him facing a ban. Not to mention other flash points he's been involved in since coming back.
We had a very good first half of the season but premature celebrations coupled with not bringing a proper quality front player to either play alongside Morelos in a differing formation or as an able replacement has cost us.
But to many fans are to bitter to admit that Celtic have a good team but a much stronger squad. Only tav, jack and Morelos would get near there squad on the showings this season. Let’s be honest we may have 4 centre half’s but none of them are as commanding and dominant as Julien has been. Morelos has been unbelievable for us but he still doesn’t possess the all round game that edouard has. The ability to bring other players into the game, the unselfish side that just puts him ahead of Alfredo. Morelos may score more goals but over the last 4/5 games he has looked bang average where as edouard has looked like a player who can step up to a higher level.
I still believe we are closing the gap and once Gerrard realises we need to adopt a plan B sometimes then I think we can get back on track.
Hopefully Brenda comes and takes a couple of their players in the summer and they replace them with inferior players.
we need to get behind the manager and trust in him. He is a born winner and won’t settle for players he knows aren’t up to the job.
