Why is it EVERY TIME a  club plays Rangers/Celtic they manage to link someone from the club who is a huge fan of said club?

Every week I seen the Saturday papers as Rangers went through league 2 + 1 they had a big bit from a player telling us all how is family/mates are all sitting in the home end at Ibrox and he usually would be too. It's a dream to play at Ibrox even if it's for the opposition. 

 

Great night. I recall the Copland Road clock being stuck on 90 mins for about 5 - 6 mins. 'Gers' get-out-of-jail time no doubt. Receiving a fusillade of pies from the Broomloan upper stand at full time. And an apoplectic *** bawling out "But..but..ye've no' got any internationals in yer team!" Priceless.

With Moore signed what the point of Laverty. He must have though being a left footed wide player he had a chance as the season went on. But with Moore signed the poor guy must be gutted. Suspect he will go out on loan then away at the end of the season.

Hooray for the coffee van takings and estate agent commissions!

A new era beckons.

That's a League 1 winning squad in my book.

Dixon will do fine in the right formation. Just make him a traditional left back . Solid defensively and supporting a left winger in front of him.  Both our fullbacks are solid defensively and ideal to allow two wide players to attack in front of them.  Instead ray thinks we've got andy robertson and phillip lahm in our squad.

Agree if you are playing as a fullback. Then you are a defender first anything else you have in your game is a bonus.

Pretty sure McKinnon already confirmed Laverty would be loaned as soon as he’s fit, also don’t believe he’s left sided or left footed either tbh? Could be wrong on that one but McKinnon did say he definitely needs to go on loan when fit.

Exactly. We've spent years and years shoehorning players into unfamiliar positions with no success whatsoever, the right-back farce being the perfect example. Dixon and Doyle will never be wingbacks in a million years, they're fine as traditional full-backs. Moore and Connolly are out-and-out wingers. So here's a really radical idea: play them there. The personnel for 3-5-2 simply is not there. Ridiculous that five minutes after signing, folk are trying to conjure up Moore as some sort of Robson replacement. He isn't.

No you are wrong , the injuries were not stress related but in fact pretty much all resulted during matches as a result of tackles or unfortunate twists.

All the so called Bielsa experts were predicting burnout around January/February yet as I say they were second at the end of April and took it to the second last game of the play offs - hardly burnout for God's sake. You might not remember how crazy the Championship goes in the last few weeks being a Tranmere fan but it is totally cut throat with teams fighting for their lives at the bottom. 

And I do not know Derby on what basis you are judging Derby last season as average at best, they were pretty good although Leeds did beat them 3 times.  

 

 

5 defeats till December, 11 defeats Jan till May suggests the experts had a point.

The bottom of the championship was also done and dusted early on this year.

Derby had David Nugent and Waghorn leading the line, that's as average as it gets, they couldn't even beat a poor Forest team.

Former players words below

When asked about that season, Ander Herrera was forthright with his opinion about the underlying cause: “I can’t lie to you, in the last months we couldn’t even move. We had five games to play in the league and were in two cup finals and I think we lost all of them. [They lost three in the league, drew one and won one].”

“Our legs said ‘stop’,” he continued. “We used to play always with the same players and were not at our best in the finals. We were a completely different team than we had been before because, to be honest, we were physically f*cked

As far as i know we only signed him as he was injured and it would look bad if we punted him . Obviously st mirren dont have the same morals as we have.

Mason Mount , Harry Wilson ...….hardly average  and I am sure Waghorn scored a bucket load of goals despite his injuries.

Not taking one player from a completely different team as  word of affirmation of burnout. Leeds will win the Championship this season with 18 first team players (perhaps 19 if the Arsenal kid signs today) .

Leeds didn’t fail to get promoted because of burn out. If anything they failed to convert their chances and their keeper was always due a clanger. That’s personnel rather than style of play. In fact the style of play remained throughout the season.

Anyway Leeds thread for this pish.

If burn out was the issue, the good thing about all this chat is we'll play considerably fewer games than Leeds this season.

bookmarked till May

Tho like Bielsa burn out history, your history of Leeds predictions has had its flaws, personal fav was you running around shouting Chapman and that Leeds would retain the league

I guess they realise the limited interest in a match against Celtic Colts.  Not even sure its worth paying a fiver to go to.

Mark Campbell are you hiding? It's all suspiciously quiet on the takeover front. Perhaps it was all a dream/nightmare

I've noticed him putting two full stops at the end of sentences a few times now. 

NOT IN MY CLUB MARK.

Ellipsis or full stops, you don't get to do both.

I personally, but I hope I am wrong, believe that Mark Campbell has no desire to buy us.

His extroverted personality reeks very similar to another Walter Mitty by the name of Brooks Mileson.  No further comments required
