I know the negativity is rife right now and there are reasons for this slump in form, confidence and belief and we all support the team/ manager through thick and thin.
However, as Ed would say:- 'I sense a great disturbance in the force', on and off the pitch.

We start the game really well, early goal, in total control (well for 13 mins) - they win a free kick. Alarm bells at the back - static ball watching back line, unmarked man and Gordon flaps.
Sound familiar, well it should because it's like a glitch in the Matrix happening on a time loop.
Every team that even has only one shot seems to score and even more alarming is, opponents surrender all the possession and territory and we cannot create or score because we have little invention, craft, or composure to do so.
Even the pace and power was missing tonight and the only player with a trick was young Johnston, who did well.

The boss seems to have lost his enthusiasm, motivation and swagger and the team have caught the bug.
There seems to be a huge drop in confidence around the place right now, especially on the pitch, when we lose a goal - and we concede every week these days.
Broony looks unfit and playing through injury, but cannot be rested for obvious reasons and the 'treatment' he gets every week may do him more serious damage?
The worrying thing for me is that it's not just one or two players that are struggling for form and confidence it's half a team and that's where BR would usually shuffle the pack, but he is clearly short of an ace or two.

OaB, absolutely top class analysis of where our club is right now. Well done sir and if the cnuts responsible for everything that's happening are reading this I sincerely hope they will step up to the plate and fix it. HH.

Word for word a perfect post to where we are at the minute. Anyone who says that mob across the city are not challengers are partaking in wishful thinking. They can smell blood. As can the rest of the league.

Something's seriously up . Looks like we've downed tools before season starts. How can a team go from having such a strong winning mentality to looking so weak and feeble in a few months.

Our club is not backing our manager. Simple as that and the frustration is clear from BR's post match interview this evening. He has a battle on his hands and the board's lack of support is symptomatic of everything that is happening. Shame on them. HH.

I think a lot of this started last season. Although we were dominant in domestic football I think some of the heavy defeats we had in Europe has scarred a lot of the players.
That is why I think the decision makers at the club took their eye off the ball in not making good enough plans to rectify it.
The manager has got to earn his money now and help the squad get some of their belief back. We won 2 trebles back to back for a reason, that is that they are better footballers than any other team has at their disposal.
Despite all the bravado coming out of Sevco we still have a far better squad than them. It's up to the manager now to put the disappointments of who we might have signed behind him and remind a lot of our team that domestically anyway we are way ahead of the opposition.

I listened to the commentary in the Celtic game they were praying for them to score or us to do anything sloppy to jump all over it. If you keep telling a winner they are a loser over and over again eventually they become a loser? We have had our strikers since the start of the season in out stop start that doesn’t help our defence has had a dozen permutations which doesn’t help? The person sympathisers are just all over any crumb of negativity we give them, but after tonight’s results which one would you rather have? A 1-0 first leg home win or an away leg score draw. I know what my choice would be 🙂⚽️🍀🏆🏆🏆 hail hail and roll in the second for a h. u. n skelping 🙂.

Craig Gordon is a great shot stopper but he does not command his box. He has the full game in front of him, but the only time you hear him talking to the players in front of him, is when he is positioning the wall at free kicks. Watch the goal from tonight and see if he actually looks across the box in front of him once. James Forrest needs someone else pushing him for his position or he let's his performance levels drop. I hope Lewis Morgan comes back soon and it may drive Forrest on. We have lost 2 game changers in Armstrong and Roberts, we were already needing central defensive re-enforcements before this season started and I’ve backed the board for sometime but enough is enough. I for one will not be happy unless there is 3 first time players signed before this window closes, nothing less and it is going to be one long season and any one who thinks differently is living in a bubble! Pedro the time is now, one week to sort it out!

bigp partly agree with you, I know what you mean about telling winners they are losers but our defence is destroying the whole team. It must be fixed. HH.

what injury is brown playing through old boy chris? that's seems to be always the reason when brown pkays poor. he's playing through injury if that's the case an not 100% then he shouldn't be playing. donu not think that his age is starting to creep up and he osnt the same oamter as of last season? his constant misplace passes and passes to the back is making him more noticeable that he may need a rest.

23 Aug 2018 22:27:08
The one position that could be improved without signing anyone is get Bain in for Gordon. Gordon's decision making with the ball at his feet is abysmal 9 times out of 10 he puts our shaky defence under pressure.

Where do you start? We are in trouble. If anyone thinks Rangers are no threat, then you had best go and lie down in a dark room till the end of the season. Same for Hearts and Hibs. Many posters have been saying this for months only to be shouted down as being anti Celtic. I since BR started on about lack of support from the Board its hone right down hill. I think BR is totally hacked off and its going through the club. We come up against a poor team tonight and we are almost as poor as them. BR has lost his drive and its reflecting on the players. 8 in a row is in serious danger unless BR gets his drive back and starts pushing the players he has got to produce better. Even Moussa looks as if he is packing it in. We will beat them at Celtic park but not too sure how many more scalps we will take in EL this season.

23 Aug 2018 23:00:17
Agree. 1-1 away better than 1-0 home. Why do the media keep calling it Gerard’s Rangers?

24 Aug 2018 15:18:17
I don’t agree with the analogy that if you keep telling a winner he’s a loser, he becomes a loser. Only a loser to start with would listen to people trying to put him down. A winner would use that as motivation to ram those words down the barstewards throats.

Let’s see what we have filling our jersey.
