To be honest, even though it's definitely my dream to see SG back at Anfield, I would be absolutely TERRIFIED of his possible failure lol. Not sure I'm ready for something like this. His last season for us was a nightmare for me personally because I wanted him to do well so much I couldn't focus on anything else. So yeah, one day hopefully he'll return, but not soon, I need at least 4 more years of Klopp just to be able simply to enjoy football and sleep well haha

Yeah, Rodgers is an entirely different case.

Despite the way it ended he earnt a lot of credit, proved he could cut it at the top level with top players, just needed to go away and work on the defensive side of his game. And let someone else manage transfers

I read the programme guide. It said something like "Jim was 60 and looking for love".

In my 31st year I was single and had a range of 18-37 which I thought was impressive. Until I realised the 18 year old thought of me as a father figure

My son at 18 slept with a 42yr old. He shouldn't have told me but I was secretly very proud

Steven Gerrard

Any regular watchers of Scottish football and in particular Rangers on the forum?

I'm wondering if Rangers style of play is evolving under Gerrard to more closely match 'The Liverpool Way' under Klopp or is Gerrard going in his own direction?

Personally I think that's more critical to the succession plan of Klopp than how many trophies Gerrard can win at Rangers.

Imagine, everything the club is doing now in recruitment and all the youth players we are developing is built around the way we play.

Of course, the way we pay will continually evolve and adapt as the competition look for new ways to counter act our style but the last thing you want is someone coming in and wanting to rip everything up and do it their way just because they want to prove themselves, AKA Souness.

I haven't watched much but it seems that he's following the Rodgers template or fast transitions spearheaded by a mental bastard with more red cards than a Maoist recruiter.

It's all gone to shit for him at Rangers. League effectively over after last night's defeat to Kilmarnock. Natives are starting to get restless.

Reading some Rangers forums on Gerrard, and trying to see what they think the problems are.

Feels like a mixed bag. Some blaming Gerrard regarding tactics and style, while others see big improvement from the years gone by.

Definitely does feel like they're getting restless. Gerrard will probably have to focus on the Scottish Cup to try and bag a trophy, because it seems that's something that could placate things.

They've definitely got closer since Gerrard came on board, but I think it was widely assumed that they would challenge this year.

In terms of levels of investment in Scotland, Rangers absolute minimum is second place.

Still, Celtic seem to have a far better squad, it's not a fair game IMO. Will do him good though if he comes through a period of criticism and difficulty.

Gerrard was tactically illiterate as a player. I would be really surprised if he is a tactically literate manager.

Another bunch of entitled supporters - this stuff takes time and Gerrard has done very well for them so far. Why can't he develop along with the team?

I don't think this is fair.

Listening to his podcast with carragher was very interesting. He regrets playing so.many positions when he was younger but obviaouky did so to get more games and he had the skills to play well enough almost anywhere.

He says he would have been a better player if he had focused on one position like 99% of players do.

There is a healthy dose of self awareness there and an explanation why he may have been lacking tacticallyx in certain positions. Not necessarily because of an inate tactical illitravy that might hold him back as a manager.

They were done over something rotten by the ref v Kilmarnock. Kilmarnock's goal was a blatant handball and Morelos had a perfectly decent goal disallowed at 1-1 with a few mins left. Interestingly it was the same referee that apologised to Gerrard after screwing them over v Aberdeen in December.

Gerrard "tactically illiterate as a player" is fucking hilarious by the way. Christ.

I’m not sure the ‘Rangers are getting done over by the refs’ angle will have much mileage up here The standard of officiating up here is historically dire, but the OF are definitely the beneficiaries of many, many favourable decisions.

Gerrard is getting (and deserves) praise for how he is handling this mini crisis. It would have been some achievement to have taken the title, I’m sure they will regroup. They were very unlucky not to win the League Cup - I’m sure they will focus on the Scottish Cup.

Celtic have already won 9 in a row in the 60/70s

You're correct though. There is enormous pressure on Gerrard and Rangers to stop Celtic achieving 10.

Why is it? He was a force of nature, but he was not disciplined tactically. Benitez in effect said that a number of times. He needed to be given a free role because he could not consistently do what was expected in a disciplined role. That doesn't make him a bad player or anything, but I thought it was something that was widely acknowledged. (I certainly wasn't trying to be controversial.)
