Looks like ambrose on the way back.


1.) 16 Feb 2017 15:55:55
What do we need to do to get rid of him 😂.

{Ed007's Note - His work permit application will now need to be appealed after it being rejected. My own theory is because if it had passed Efe would have been able to play Man Utd in the FA Cup and Jose was a bit worried - think along the Jorge Cadete fiasco :-D

2.) 16 Feb 2017 16:45:48
Ah would have thought with big Efe in the starting line up that would have been man utd playing with 12 men.

3.) 16 Feb 2017 20:31:13
If we didn't need our subs and appearance was the issue I'd give the guy a run out on the 89th for the next few games (as long as he went up front) . The establishment have gone trully mad if he doesn't meet the criteria?

4.) 16 Feb 2017 20:26:30
Is he not due for residency come the summer? Sounds mad to me that a work permit is being dragged up after his his lenght of time here, appearances domestic/ international combined and the tax he has chipped in. Weird world. Who is pulling the strings on this?

{Ed007's Note - The problem is that Ambrose hasn't played enough internationals in the last two seasons to meet the FA criteria but they're all great points you've made.}

5.) 17 Feb 2017 20:00:51
Feel sorry for him, he will be wanting to get his career back on track with a fresh start.

6.) 17 Feb 2017 23:18:48
Never forget being at paradise when we beat Barcelona 2-1. Efe was a rock. Hope he gets a wee run in the team once the leagues wrapped up before he leaves at end of the season. Guy deserves a good sent off.



30 Jan 2017 11:34:36
Efe to hibs?


1.) 30 Jan 2017 12:20:28
Does he need a lift?

2.) 30 Jan 2017 13:36:39
Looks we are losing nearly a full team over the next 24 hours of the papers are right.

Gordon to Chelsea
Izzy to Leeds
Efe to Hibs
Simunovic to Crystal Palace or Sunderland
Dembele to half the EPL
Commons to Hibs
Sviachenko to Leicester
Tierney to Sunderland

3.) 30 Jan 2017 15:44:28
Wishful thinking from the scottish papers Niall Efe and commons and that'll be it but of course it will be an exclusive

4.) 30 Jan 2017 16:58:35

That was the point of the post. We are trying to build a squad, not sell one.

With Commons and Efe probably after some kind of pay-off to go 6 months early it will probably be just as expensive to keep them.

Izzy will also be required for cover.

No danger we will sell the others.



02 Jan 2017 17:57:57
Being reported that the gaffer is getting 6 million to spend in the window.


1.) 02 Jan 2017 18:21:03
Is that the Van Dijk money if he goes to Chelski? I believe that McCarthy was our number one target, 6m might be enough, but Gueye is off to the AFCON and Everton may be reluctant right now. Injury concerns over him too.

2.) 02 Jan 2017 19:37:18
spend the whole £6m and buy Patrick Roberts on a perm deal, then in the summer buy Mcarthy.


3.) 02 Jan 2017 20:04:16
Think it will be for more than just one player to be honest.

4.) 02 Jan 2017 22:15:14
Don't think we need too many to b fair, another quality midfielder in the mould a rogic n Roberts ad b over the moon.

5.) 03 Jan 2017 02:28:12
We are not going to buy Roberts for 6 mil, Man City paid around 12 mil don't think they are going to loan him out for progress then let him go for half the price, let's get real guys, we won't get him on a perm deal.

6.) 03 Jan 2017 08:44:45
Majority of that is add ons mate. I'm sure I remember Ed saying the fee was around or even under 6 million, the adds on depend on performance. Also keep in mind he was bought by a different manager so would not be that strange for him to be let go. however the real issue is when other English clubs hear he is available there will be many out there willing to offer more than we can afford.

{Ed001's Note - I am pretty sure they paid nearly £13m for him but you are right that Pep is not keen on him and the recruitment policy at City in general is something he wants changed. There was a bit of a set-to after they played Liverpool between himself and Txiki Bergiristan over that. If Celtic want to take him on a permanent, they will find Citeh are very receptive to an offer right now.}

Is it true that scott Allan is training with the youth team at Rotherham?


1.) 03 Nov 2016 17:13:55
Scott who. who cares he's not ever going to be in br plans.

2.) 04 Nov 2016 13:34:50
A mistake from the past . Never prepared to add a little work rate to his range of passing.



28 Oct 2016 15:41:40
Tierney hurt in training anyone else heard this.


1.) 28 Oct 2016 18:57:18
Hearing he has broken his leg : (

2.) 28 Oct 2016 18:59:40
Just heard it rom my mate. Out for the season with ankle injury.

3.) 28 Oct 2016 19:02:04
BROKEN ankle / leg.

When is scott browns appeal?


1.) 25 Apr 2017 15:28:46
I think it's on Thursday.



17 Apr 2017 21:55:17
I think it was only a matter of time before one of our players was going to lose the head with the treatment that's has been dished out so far. We have been kicked all over Scotland with the refs giving absolutely no protection.

Then on top of that they are giving penalties like the hearts and Ross County ones and chopping off goals that are fair goals (even ogs).

It got to the point that Brown was pushed too far. Am I happy that the red mist set in?
Can I see why it did?


1.) 18 Apr 2017 15:52:34
Great post kev av been saying this for weeks we're getting kicked off the park most games and the culprits are getting away with it good for broony about time we started dishing it out but try that on sun and we know the outcome.



08 Apr 2017 19:26:40
Is this the James forrest that we have been told about by managers for years?


1.) 08 Apr 2017 20:43:55
I have to give JF credit for his improvement. Without being to much of a kill joy though, he's still the weakest link in the top half of the pitch for me.

2.) 08 Apr 2017 22:12:36
Jim a hate being critical of him too, but for me he lacks balls, shirks too many 50/ 50's for me. Saying that he's surprised me this season, much more of a threat than he's been in recent years.

3.) 08 Apr 2017 23:07:40
I'd still replace him in the summer if I'm honest. The boy Onyekuru looks cracking, more technique and physicality about him. Not sure if that'll be a goer still but somebody in that sort of mould.

4.) 08 Apr 2017 23:10:51
He is much more of a threat Steph, the numbers show it. But the numbers also show he's not as much of a threat as the other players around him. So whilst everybody is suddenly talking about us not resting on our laurels and standing still, JF's position is a stand out for me in terms of improvement.

5.) 09 Apr 2017 00:42:54
Hes still rotten. What is it that he has actually improved on from the last 6 yrs? Takes on his man a bit more often? Still lazy tracking back, still doesn't show enough for the ball. i could go on. RW will be one signing i would like to see.

6.) 09 Apr 2017 06:10:54
To say he's rotten is just wrong its night and day from last season. he's in double figures for goals and asdissts and are we to believe that brendan is putting up with a lack if work rate. credit where it's due he's had a good season.

7.) 09 Apr 2017 14:16:40
I'll admit forest has improved from his performances of the last couple of season but that' wouldn't have been hard! Still far to many wasted opportunities down his side for me! Scared to beat a man and his crossing is woeful! We're going to need more than him to move up a level! Decent squad player but nothing more.

8.) 09 Apr 2017 14:29:20
Yayo no way has he been rotten this season. He has been scoring goals and make assists including in champions league.

9.) 09 Apr 2017 17:14:08
Hes still rotten in my eyes. Not consistent. Still has 1 good game in every 7 this time around compared to 1 game in say 15. He can be that much improved if you all have said that's a postion that needs strengthened.



13 Mar 2017 13:22:40
Would any body else be tempted to rest our big game players this weekend?
A few of them looked like they could use it before semi final.


{Ed007's Note - No chance, Kev. Unless it's through injury/fitness get them out on that park playing to redeem themselves, get them back to winning ways AND show that they're up to the task of seeing out the season. The semi is over a month away and we have a league to wrap up asap.
We had the winter break and the trip to Dubai was meant to be all about recharging the batteries so if any the players need a rest now then their fitness levels aren't at an acceptable level, if that is the case I'd have them in for extra training never mind resting them.
Even at that I wouldn't say any of our players looked tired yesterday, for me that's just an excuse for them not turning up and putting in what was a thoroughly unacceptable performance. They've got all week to rest and train to be ready for Dundee, that should be ample time for any player.}

1.) 13 Mar 2017 13:43:46
Agree ed just maybe give jozo and eboue a wee run to freshen things.

{Ed007's Note - Things like that are just normal squad rotation though and I've no problem with that. Although Simunovic was on the bench yesterday he wasn't fit enough for 90 mins or I think he would have started beside Boyata. I also think if we had been 2 or 3 goals up Eboue Kouassi would have replaced Bitton at some point during the game but when Bitton got injured we were still looking for goals and McGregor was probably the better option. Armstrong going off injured was a big blow to us and we struggled after that.}

2.) 13 Mar 2017 13:51:40
Kev83: I understand your thinking but the 1st team need to be match sharp and that only comes from playing games at that level.

3.) 13 Mar 2017 14:06:08
Good shout ed can't disagree with that armstrong was a blow thought he was controlling things but we just didn't turn up.

{Ed007's Note - It was reminiscent of a Walter Smith side, knowing that the referee isn't going to red card anyone so just take it turns to commit fouls until you're booked then let someone else be the hatchet man until he gets booked and so on, - but I wonder if it was the drunken jakey tramp Bomber that gave the order to try and injure our midfielders. Did they listen to Meatloaf's Two Out Of Three Ain't Bad after the game?
Don't forget that the game was only 7 mins in when Kenny Miller tried to break Armstrong's leg(s) so there was no surprise when he ended up injured during the game.

4.) 13 Mar 2017 14:30:37
Am amazed they finished with 11 men. there's a picture of millers challenge on another site its unbelievable he never even got booked holts challenge on a think it was paddy was ridiculous not even a foul. and well we know about the pen dermot Gallagher on sly saying it was pen brother bobby would have been getting toasted last mite by the klan terrible display.

{Ed007's Note - I have no doubts at all that if the penalty incident had happened at the other end it would definitely - 100% certain - have been given.}

5.) 13 Mar 2017 14:34:12
If the players have enough pride about them then they should be desperate to play on Sunday to get yesterdays performance out of their system.
Over the last few weeks I've felt that we haven't started games well, I don't know if this down to complacency or not but I would like to see us really forcing our opponents back early in games before they settle into their defensive shape.

{Ed007's Note - We're struggling playing 4-3-3, I can't quite put my finger on it but since we switched formation we don't seem to dominate the way we were earlier in the season when we had a fit Rogic and played 4-2-3-1.}

6.) 13 Mar 2017 14:47:23
ED007 I said last week that our players would be targeted as they knew the ref would turn a blind eye. Did we really expect anything less from Madden.
The game was almost a re run of Delia's semi final, we played poorly in both games, yet were still better than them, a wee gee up from Brendan is now needed.
I agree with you about some of the players easing off in games recently, I hope Rogic is fit for the semi and even the new guy Eboue both may give us some energy.
We all saw how blatant the cheating, and there is no other word from it from Madden, and this was in a game Sevco had nothing to gain except pride, imagine the number of "honest mistakes" that will occur in the semi final, which is now sevco's make or break game.
On the positive side, just like the last semi final, all the "respectful" triumphalism displayed yesterday should ensure our players are well up for the April game.

{Ed007's Note - There is no way that an ex-RFC season ticket holder (wasn't it a debenture he had with the old club?) should be in the middle of a Glasgow Derby.}

7.) 13 Mar 2017 15:06:37
Said in a earlier post that think we're missing rogics wee bit of magic in the last third but hopefully b ready for semi final where the honest mistakes will be a plenty remember big eriks disallowed goal the ladt time at hampden there's yer starter for ten.

{Ed007's Note - We need to look at a new No.10 in the summer, for all I think Rogic's a great technical player his injury problems are a constant concern. I still think we should have kept Johansen for another season to see how he fared under Rodgers.}

8.) 13 Mar 2017 15:36:30
It does beg the question why, like with the English FA and their refs having to declare who they support etc, if there are measures which can reduce pressure or possibly even eliminate innocent mistakes, they aren't taken with the SFA.

{Ed007's Note - It's definitely something that should be looked at up here. Either that or bring in foreign officials for big games like derbies and the semis and finals of the cups.}

9.) 13 Mar 2017 16:11:07
Ed Jimtim's idea is fine and reasonable but do you expect madden and his ilk to be honest?

{Ed007's Note - Madden couldn't lie and say that he wasn't a Rangers/RIFC season ticket holder.}

10.) 13 Mar 2017 17:36:00
I've said before that even if a referee goes into one of these games intending to be truly fair, you can't be sure how they'll react when they have to give a decision in the last minute of a match which is likely to cost his favourite team the match.
It's human nature that he's likely to instantly give the decision in favour of his own team.
Why the SFA think that this won't happen is beyond me. If they were to bring in referees from outside it wouldn't just be fairer to us, it would also be fairer to the refs themselves.

11.) 13 Mar 2017 18:10:25
In that split-second moment gerry, a decision could even be a subconscious one.

12.) 13 Mar 2017 18:04:14
Think your right ed definitely need another no 10 rogic to injury prone maybe young christie can step up next year.

{Ed007's Note - I wouldn't fancy Christie in there in CL matches though.}

13.) 13 Mar 2017 18:46:27
guys if we play Armstrong as a No10 then we are looking at another backup to him. SA has the pace guile and strength to play that role.

14.) 13 Mar 2017 18:47:56
Me neither need to get the cheque book out christie will b fine domestically but cl to lightweight.

15.) 13 Mar 2017 18:46:27

Me neither need to get the cheque book out christie will b fine domestically but cl to lightweight.

{Ed007's Note - Rodgers was quick enough to speak out about LG needing to knuckle down and get himself fit so God knows what he thinks about Rogic. I really hoped he had put all the injury problems behind him and he would cement his place in the starting 11 but that's just over 4 years (Jan '13) he's been here and he's still struggling to stay fit. Being fit for only 50% of our league games is unacceptable to me when you know his injury history.}

17.) 13 Mar 2017 20:53:00
Thats a terrible stat ed shame cause he's got a lot to offer.

{Ed007's Note - I was surprised myself but we've played 28 games and he's made 14 league apps for us so far. Remembering how many times he never lasted the full 90 mins in games I worked it out that in the SPFL he's averaged only 63.5 mins per match - 889 mins over his 14 apps.}

18.) 13 Mar 2017 21:18:59
I actually thought the cup game was closer than a month away but still think some of the players look jaded.
With the league won in all but name really I would be rotating as much as possible up until the semi to make sure everyone at there peak.
As for the number 10 roll I think it's only really rogic that can play it in our squad and it is a must buy for the summer.
Armstrong for me is best in beside brown and is looking more like the next captain every week.



27 Feb 2017 12:20:14
Never managed to see any of the game at the weekend
How bad was the tackle on forrest?


1.) 27 Feb 2017 13:45:24
Seen it a few times and didn't think it was to bad.

2.) 27 Feb 2017 14:36:45
I think it was a hard tackle but it was 50/ 50 nothing really wrong with it IMO I am sure there was no malice in it.

3.) 27 Feb 2017 14:47:36
Yeah wasn't a foul just came together sore.

4.) 27 Feb 2017 15:07:15
Forrest was stretching so there was no support for his ankle when they collided.

5.) 27 Feb 2017 16:03:34
Cheers guys.

Jfp1888, I not so sure kolo was a failed experiment.
I don't think we would have made champions league without him.
That last qualifying game he made all the difference at the end.
But there have been more failures signing old players from epl than successes.
