Get James McLean and Lewis Ferguson signed up for the 10 that will tip the Rangers over the edge.


1.) 27 May 2020 10:08:22
Ferguson no thanks better at the club and better out there.

2.) 27 May 2020 10:10:53
I know we've had many rangers fans as players in the past. but the way his family is steeped in there ways I do not think his heart would be in helping us get 10. there's rangers fans then there's loyal rangers fans if ye get my drift and I think his family are the loyal kind.

{Ed007's Note - The Ferguson family aren't like that mate, their mum is a lovely women and Barry's wife and their oldest kid at least (maybe all 3 of them) are Catholics and went to Celtic Park with Maggie's dad on season tickets bought by Barry.}

3.) 27 May 2020 10:36:09
Ed’s spot on Barry’s kids have been to a few matches at Celtic.
Lewis Ferguson is a kid with good potential a can see similarities with a young Scott Brown would let us give Broony a rest when needed.

4.) 27 May 2020 11:15:05
Don't think either are good enough tbh.

5.) 27 May 2020 11:19:51
ed007. surprised with that mate I just assumed they would have been right staunch rangers men and the whole family. I watch open goal and Derek Ferguson does seem like a decent guy.

{Ed007's Note - I'm pretty sure that both Derek and Barry have said when asked that it would be up to Lewis to decide and he'd need to do what was best for his own career if Celtic came calling and that he has the mental strength to handle the pressure.
I don't think it'll happen as I think Ferguson's next move will be down south but when you look around Scottish football he's one of the best midfielders outside Celtic and he's only 20/21.}

6.) 27 May 2020 12:19:01
ed007. they boy has got abit a dig about him definitely mate. and i can only see him improving do you think Celtic would be interested in him.

{Ed007's Note - Yeah I do simply because he is a top young talent right on our doorstep.}

7.) 27 May 2020 14:07:29
Ad sign him and I’m hoping we will he’s got potential to be right good player and he has a wee nasty streak so will do for me.

8.) 27 May 2020 15:34:17
You want someone in our midfield who when he goes into a safari park the animals roll up their windows.

9.) 28 May 2020 00:07:12
I like Lewis Ferguson, energy, dig, drive, commitment, passion, can score goals. Saw him against Burnley in Europe and he really stood out against them, he has the attributes to make it at a club like ours. If we have the chance to sign him we should, could be Browns successor in my opinion.

10.) 28 May 2020 11:24:20
He definitely has a bit of dig in him because he might have finished up with the most bookings in the league last season.
Scott Brown was similar for years.
Lewis will adapt his game with experience, the same as Brown.

11.) 28 May 2020 22:51:24
Ferguson is DEFINITELY worth the effort if we can make it happen. That's a lad who will be a major player for whatever team is lucky to sign him. He's young, he has grit, he has balls and he has self confidence in spades. If it's 2-4m then he'll be worth every penny. HH.

12.) 29 May 2020 11:41:54
Bob - 2-4m? Remember this is the Sheep we're talking about and if The Wig wanted 10m for McKenna and he's a carthorse, then they'd be looking for crazy money for Ferguson.

13.) 29 May 2020 17:34:08
He might turn out to be a better player than McGinn wouldn't mind signing him and loaning him back to Aberdeen for the next season or 2 to keep him progressing and getting games as right now he wouldn't dislodge anyone in the team atm. By then Brown may be considering retirement.

{Ed007's Note - What if Ntcham moves on?}

14.) 29 May 2020 22:50:58
You are spot on there, the only way we can improve the midfield, improve the creativity, improve the mobility, bring the team up to another level, is if Brown retires because there is no way he will be dropped.

15.) 30 May 2020 17:06:22
Ed am glad you said that about barry Ferguson and that. I have know for a long time he's not like that even though he is a proud rangers man. Spoke to him years ago and was a real nice guy to me. Few weeks before he had problems in glasgow with a group of neds and he was really angry with himself for getting caught up in it. Said his mammy went tonto.

{Ed007's Note - 👍

Neil Lennon Tactical genius.
hope he does the decent thing and resign was gutted when he got appointed he's done nothing to change that.


1.) 26 Aug 2020 21:49:01
I wish hed go as well . not a fan and his in-game management is way below average.

2.) 26 Aug 2020 21:59:27
TAXI for Lennon NOW not tomorrow not Friday NOW. Two strikers sitting watching the game with Christie as the main striker baffling.



15 Aug 2020 22:14:20
Dembele likes his goals against Man City.


1.) 15 Aug 2020 22:49:05
Lyon were big odds of 12/ 1
Considering they got a win and a draw against City In last seasons CL group games.

2.) 16 Aug 2020 00:12:02
He’s continuing his record against the blues.

3.) 16 Aug 2020 11:03:48
Must mean the paris buns could beat city.



18 Jul 2020 08:35:46
What about Leeds Ed with your man Bielsa?! Read a lot about him and his techniques he's some man! Why has it taken him this long to find his way over to Britain? Must admit couldn't see the fuss when the media went tonto at him spying on poor Frank ad have done the same myself.


{Ed007's Note - I'm delighted for him and Leeds, they're a massive club who should be in the Pub League and pushing at the top end of it too. I think Bielsa's different approach to things scared off a lot of English clubs away and the fact he couldn't speak a word of English didn't help his case.
He would have been a fantastic appointment for us 😢

1.) 18 Jul 2020 12:09:46
No half Ed! He’s spent buttons and got them millions. A mind you saying he would have been your dream appointment. Leeds is a dump of a place but the clubs got massive potential.

{Ed007's Note - Have you ever been to Burnley? It's a complete tip of a place, like a real life Hovis advert but the people all look like they should be in The League of Gentleman!}

2.) 18 Jul 2020 13:25:31
Bradford is the same. Manky.

3.) 18 Jul 2020 14:15:21
Just had to google The League of Gentleman, that's Savage Ed 🤣🤣🤣.

{Ed007's Note - Think Larkhall without the Kulture.}

4.) 18 Jul 2020 14:19:58
🤣🤣🤣 no but I will take your word for it.

{Ed007's Note - That's the best way mate - stay well clear of it!}

5.) 18 Jul 2020 14:36:16
Fascist right wing support. Hope they go straight back down.

6.) 18 Jul 2020 15:31:53
Ed, careful, I'm only 2 miles from Larkhall. At least Stonehouse isn't as bad as Port Glasgow.

{Ed007's Note - The Stonehouse Klan look down on their Larkhall brothers because there's a Chapel and Catholic school there. I don't know if I've ever been to Port Glasgow.}

7.) 18 Jul 2020 18:28:44
A boy in work moved from blackwood to stonehouse cos it was stauncher. 😂 bellend.

{Ed007's Note - They're a strange breed 😂😂



17 Jul 2020 07:09:14
How did Klimala do.


1.) 17 Jul 2020 09:13:48
He did ok mate. Didn't really get on the ball too much but was very quick and aggressive in his pressing which led to his goal.

2.) 17 Jul 2020 13:20:01
Held the ball up alright at times when played up to him. That extra muscle has helped him out whereas he'd have been brushed off the ball before. Wee Mikey could do with taking a page put his book.



20 Jun 2020 19:13:51
Gavin Strachan to take over Damien Duff role?! Gordon's son and assistant at Peterborough.


1.) 20 Jun 2020 23:04:39
Absolute shocking appointment and only reason he got the job is because of who his dad is. Not only am I unhappy that we have appointed him, I am peeved that we had to pay compensation as well.

If it turns out I am wrong and he proves to be an excellent coach, then I will be happy to apologise but I don't think I will have to.

2.) 21 Jun 2020 00:00:08
Were you expecting Guardiola? Just because he's come Peterborough doesn't mean he'll be a john barnes, not that I expect him to be like Guardiola either I might add but realistically who was in the frame?

3.) 21 Jun 2020 00:11:03
Young Strachan has been about.
He played for 10 different clubs before he took up his first coaching job 9 years ago.
Gavin worked his way up to Peterborough’s first team coach and then he got a chance to manage a non-league club but he left after only 4 months at the helm.

Gavin has been assistant manager to Darren Ferguson for the last 5 years at both Doncaster Rovers and Peterborough.
Here’s hoping he’s a chip off the old block and his father’s character and knowledge rubs off on him. Welcome To The Family. 🍀.

4.) 21 Jun 2020 00:40:03
If he isn't thought of highly we wouldn't be paying money for him. To say he is only getting the job because of his Father is ludicrous.

5.) 21 Jun 2020 00:42:57
Lennon what do you actually know about him?
We are bringing him in as a number 3 coach . Who did you expect?

6.) 21 Jun 2020 00:52:07
And if anyone thinks the Pistol Pete would PAY compensation for anyone just because they are the son of a former manager they don't have a clue.
The bold lawwell would have prompted from within and left them on the same wage.

7.) 21 Jun 2020 01:03:37
Harsh, give the guy a chance.

8.) 21 Jun 2020 06:20:11
what makes you think he is a shocking appointment genuine question.

9.) 21 Jun 2020 07:02:32
Bit of a shock to me as well can only think JK recommended him as they done there badges at the same time. Duff had little coaching experience but had played at a high standard I thought Darren Fletcher was a stick on for it. Sadly not Roy Keane 😭.

10.) 21 Jun 2020 08:25:04
Like me am sure you know hee haw about the boy so why you being so negative? he might be an outstanding coach he did his badges with big Kennedy so maybe he gave him the thumbs up. give him a chance our club are no bad at doing background checks so i'll go with there opinion rather than yours.

11.) 21 Jun 2020 09:48:42
Peterborough score a hell of a lot of goals I think I'm right in saying highest scorers in all the English leagues this season and if I remember right high scorers in previous seasons I'm hoping his coaching style contributes to that could actually be very decent appoitment, he needs a chance.

12.) 21 Jun 2020 10:21:46
The way our setup is structured just now the coaches play a pivotal role in the player development and tactical side of the game. That is why it was vital we made the correct appointment.

We know John Kennedy is a highly regarded coach and his areas of strength are the defensive and tactical side of the game. Therefore, I would have liked to see someone with great technical and attacking coaching attributes.

Personally I would have liked us to have invested in this area to get a top drawer coach in with innovative ideas but sadly that does not look like that will be happening.

{Ed007's Note - That's not how coaching works, you don't have different coaches for the defenders, midfielders and the attackers. Just because Kennedy was a defender doesn't mean he's a defensive coach or that it's his special area of expertise.}

13.) 21 Jun 2020 10:50:38
That's true I actually read I'm not sure if it was you ed that posted it on here it was actually duff that done a lot of work on improving our set pieces defenceveley.

{Ed007's Note - It wasn't me, Liam but I remember reading that too somewhere.}

14.) 21 Jun 2020 11:16:11
I think people forget - as impressive as John Kennedy was when he broke through - his career was effectively over at 21. I'm sure he does help the CBs with tips etc. but he doesn't have a wealth of top level game experience to draw on.

15.) 21 Jun 2020 12:16:49
How many times has it got to be said that john kennedy isn't a defensive coach?

16.) 21 Jun 2020 12:21:02
I'm actually quite happy we went out and paid to get someone in and not just promoted from within. Surely the guy has more about him otherwise we wouldn't be spending anything at all given the circumstances. I'm sure his dad would have given him plenty of advice over the years as well as Fergie to Darren so he's picked up information off some top experienced managers over time. Could turn out to be a shrewd bit of business.

17.) 21 Jun 2020 12:58:16
I didn't say you did have a separate coach for the defenders, midfielders and attackers, that was just your interpretation of what I said.

The coaching setup also veries widely from club to club, as do the roles of each job title.

I know both John Kennedy and Damian Duff were involved in the coaching of the first team players, as Neil Lennon said so. Lennon also said of Kennedy "he brings a lot of knowledge to the systems as well", which would indicate he has input on how the team is setup in terms of tactics and formations.

I stick by my earlier comment that John Kennedy's strengths as a coach are his tactical and defensive knowledge of the game.

{Ed007's Note - You can stand by it if you want but that doesn't make it right and you're basing it solely on the fact he was a defender, there's nothing to back it up and as he is actually NL's assistant tells you he has a lot more strings to his bow than his so called defensive knowledge that he garnered playing 45 professional games when he was 20-years old kid 17/18 years ago.}

18.) 21 Jun 2020 13:36:36
That's why the rat wanted him to go with him hh.

19.) 21 Jun 2020 13:54:08
I am not basing it on the fact he was a defender, I am basing it on bits and pieces I have picked up in interviews with him and other backroom staff members over the years.

Believe it or not, football manager also has a an excellent data base on players and backroom staff. I hear you laugh but elite clubs actually use it as well to identify players, which indicates how good it actually is. In their data base it lists John Kennedy's main strengths as tactical and defensive knowledge.

What I am not basing it on, is what someone on the internet said, which is what some people do.

{Ed007's Note - That answer doesn't even warrant a laughing gif..... oh what the Hell


20.) 21 Jun 2020 14:37:28
Just showing your ignorance of what goes into the making of football manager's data base and why it is so valued within the real footballing community.

{Ed007's Note - Yeah because that's exactly where clubs look when they need a coach..... Football Manager! 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂


21.) 21 Jun 2020 15:07:09
Is a straw man argument the best you can do?

Instead of trying to mask your ignorance with a fallacious argument, why don't you go and read about the rigorous measures Sports Interactive deploy to gather the data for their data base. Also go and read up on how top level clubs use the data base.

I can only point you in the right direction, it is up to you if you want to remain ignorant on the topic.

For the record I am not saying that the data base is 100% accurate but it does provide a very good approximation on the most part, hence the reason many clubs are using it.

{Ed007's Note - Let's hope Nick Hammond has spent the lockdown scouting on FIFA 20 for us eh? You said:

"We know John Kennedy is a highly regarded coach and his areas of strength are the defensive and tactical side of the game."

And you back that up with Football manager 😂😂😂😂
This conversation is over, we have a video games site if you want to talk about them.}

22.) 21 Jun 2020 15:14:47
Is that not where hearts got Cathro 🤣🤣🤣🤣.

{Ed007's Note - I dread to think what his main strengths were on it 😂😂😂😂😂

23.) 21 Jun 2020 17:09:23
Answer me this before I go, if there is no merit in the football manager database then why are top clubs using it to help them make footballing decisions?

{Ed007's Note - Clubs use the player data for analysis but name me one club that has used FM to hire a coach at any level - name me just one single club that has done that....

24.) 21 Jun 2020 18:26:52
Going by that logic is someone able to fast forward the current FM and get us a few of the young hidden Gems and make us millions selling them Also the best up and coming coaches for when NL leaves after the 12.

25.) 21 Jun 2020 18:40:56
CampsieBhoy many clubs are already using the data in this way. They use Football Manager database to identify players who fit the profile they want and then go and scout them in person.

26.) 21 Jun 2020 18:54:05
A seen a thing before mate that FM was compiled from scouting reports Iv not played a computer in over 20 years so have no idea how these things operate.

27.) 22 Jun 2020 02:03:05
There is something some use but I doubt it's football manager. Read something about Ranieri using some database to sign Mahrez based on data compiled from it that's accessible to anyone not sure what it is but doubt it's a computer game lol.

Same as the rumours doing the rounds that it’s all Gavin Strachans fault, him and Lennon don’t get on and the players are saying the training isn’t up to scratch and Strachans tactics are bizarre and Lennon can’t/ won’t intervene all done/ said to compound the misery.

A didn’t think a could get more depressed until I read you say Lennon won’t be going anywhere soon.


{Ed007's Note - I'll email you later on mate, I'm not long getting online 👍 I can't see him resigning and no way will DD or Lawwell pull the plug because of some iffy performances and losing to TRIFC. To be fair he should be given time to sort out his own mess. Playing Milan next isn't going to help but as I said when the draw was made I don't expect us to get many points there, our focus now needs to be on maintaining our domestic dominance. As soon as we went out the CL that should have been drilled into the players heads imo. Getting into the CL would make money and raise the Club and players profiles but being part of a team that 10 in a row, a potential quadruple and then fifth straight Treble would make these players famous and immortalised for the rest of eternity.
My spidey senses were sent a twinkle when I read that DD had spoken about getting some kind of sports psychologist in and Lennon kind of agreed, why would we need that if Lennon's strengths is motivating players?}

Great post jicer!
Garry no chance is Ntcham better than Turnbull Iv never been a fan of Ntcham and couldn’t understand the fuss Turnbull has the potential to be a star. Ntcham blows hot and cold too often and goes missing when going gets tough.
