    Just a simple yes or no. Time will tell on who may be signed, but for me for the large part he will select this.
    I'm going yes.

    I think we will win the league, but it will be a lot closer than it should have been.

    With a reasonably competent Board, committed to improving the squad, we could have put real distance between ourselves and the Tribute Act, whilst maintaining financial security.

    To do what, compete for the title? Christ, you'd like to think so. Rangers are the only club anywhere near capable of mounting a challenge, and we still financially dwarf them due to their own financial meltdown 7 years ago. It clearly is not a strong enough squad, however, to do one of our most important objectives of the season- qualify for the CL. For that reason, it absolutely must be strengthened to avoid future further failure.

    Of course we will win the league, anything else is totally unacceptable.

    The squad is good enough to win the title IF it's used correctly, the same squad was also good enough to have won on Tuesday IF it had been used correctly. I never said it shouldn't be further strengthened so calm yourself.

    We are weaker. They are significantly stronger. They embarrassed us both times at their * hole and could have got something at our place. With 10 men. The gap was 9pts, and I think that gap has now been bridged over the summer.
    Whats in our favour is we know how to win, that cannot be underestimated, however if anyone thinks this league wont go down to the wire has their head in firmly in the sand. I think this league is 50/50 and will come down to fine margins.
    Given the position of strength we were in, it is nothing short of utterly scandalous that it has come to this.

    Why are we suddenly weaker? Hyperbole pish because we lost a CHAMPIONS LEAGUE game? A thing they have never played in. Weve scored more domestically than them aswel so why are they suddenly better? We are historically pish in qualifiers and lost to a team better than anything rangers have played. A team that has a wage bill £3m less than ours. That's not alot but still double sevco.

    Yes we will but things shouldn’t be like this, we should be out of site not even worrying about that mob. But no as per usual the * in charge find a way of keeping it as a contest, is that by design or just complacency’s I’ll leave that up to yourselves to decide.

    Im not basing this on tuesday nights debacle. Although clearly that has helped back up my point. We have lost an entire backline consisting of a Swedish and Belgian International. Throw in Benkovic in there also. And have lost a left flank that once upon a time had Tierney and an on fire Sinclair. Now we have Boli and morgan. If you dont think we are weaker then i think your head is more entrenched in the sand than most. I never said they are better than us either by the way. I said they are significantly stronger. Which they are.

    OK given time to cool down, Tuesday night was a monumental * up on a lot of fronts players as well as manager , but we have started domestically brilliant.....so the wheels aint of the wagon...as for Sevco.....we will see by Christmas if they've improved or not......we still have £ and the jan window to further strengthen

    How are they significantly stronger? Just 3 days ago every * said they are weaker. Lost Kent lost that other Ohioji or something guy. Again your over hyping their team.

    Defence, a swedish crock who couldnt turn after 5 yards. What's your point? Our right is now stronger.

    £7m cb to replace bencovic.

    Christie is back and no injured and playing better than ever.

    A LB who barely played from injury in the last season. Played the part where we had the worst start in 26 years.

    Aye our left may be weaker at the moment, but the central and right hand side is stronger. We are not considerably weaker.
