Started well enough but have fallen out of it the last 15 mins and its almost all Rangers. More of this in the second and rangers will eventually score. Two very good saves from Lewis, and while plenty of long aimless balls Cosgrove could have scored two.

Usual complaint, 3 center mids doing the job of two, all three not very involved. Missing a 10 yet again for an attacking outlet, hence the long aimless punt up the park all too often which results in another rangers attack.

We need to be better, rangers are average and I'd love us to be brave and put Hedges in at 10 for Ojo or McGeouch.

Also agree Kennedy has been pretty decent, more so defensively. Reminds me of Hayes in his body shape and movement but has been in a few one on ones and unlike Hayes hasn’t been able to blow by the full back.

Not a bad game so far. Cosgrove will be kicking himself with that one on one, he did so well to get on to it. We just need to be a little bit better in pressing, as their defenders aren't great. Their midfield is decent. The pitch is a fucking disaster. Huns spent all their groundsmen funds. Hopefully get a goal in the second half. Kennedy and McGinn playing well.

A good point. I had a feeling we would get something today and going by what I read on here we possibly could have got the whole 3 points.

Not a bad result in the end. We did quite well in stages. Defence was fairly solid. Cosgrove breathing out his airse for the last 20, it's a shame we don't have anyone we can bring on for him in these types of games (Anderson not really going to hold the ball up). Didn't really look like sneaking one in the second half, but they didn't cause us too many problems either.

Edit, to add: Lewis was fantastic. Brilliant at one-on-ones.

Dare I say it, but logan played his best game all season (low bar, I know). But he had a great game. Lewis deserves the plaudits and we really could have taken more from it. But happy with that. Level of performance that was required. Kudos to the team. Now they need to translate that into a run of positive results.

 Didnt expect that, fair play. Though not seeing the game,not sure it was a case of we were good or they were bad,but going by reports we were pretty decent
   .A line up like that can work for this type of game,but McInnes needs to loosen the shackles a bit for the next at home to St Js

Hmm, don’t quite agree. A failed/poor clearance or two plus some dodgy fouls that weren’t punished. I thought he was shaky all game.

I’m sorry I don’t share the same positivity, we pretty much defended our arses off for 90 minutes and could barely keep the ball. Plenty of hoof ball, Cosgrove diving around and fouling at will, I want us to be better than that. Yes we had 2-3 chances, but Lewis has some excellent saves too.

Logan looked a little shaky first 30 mins I thought but then had great second half.  Taylor did well too, he has defo come back a better player.  Take that all day long, the huns will be gutted to dropping even more points and especially to us at home.  Cunts.

Given the current state of the team, I was happy enough for a backs to the wall performance. Everyone tried. I missed most of the first half, so should have qualified that.

Seen somewhere that Gerrard win percentage against us is around 25%? Given the gulf in finances and we've been honking for most of his tenure, that's hilarious. Huns are losing their shit   :rofl:

Serves the slippery Hun cunt right and delighted to see his comments after his first game against us repeatedly coming back to bite the Scouse wanker in the arse. Long may it continue

Very surprising result but a tremendous one. That's four points teen aff the huns in the last two games. That helps to keep them trophyless, not having won a damn thing in their short-arsed poisonous history  :thumbsup:

Interesting, i missed that Hibs let Kamberi join Rangers. If only they’d asked, we may have grudgingly given them
Curtis Main. Missed opportunity...

Why the hell didn't I lump on my 0-0 prediction. Wasn't even that much of a shitfest….Cosgrove should certainly have scored and Taylor (my m.o.m. btw) was unlucky to be denied by a wonder save.

Kennedy looked much more integrated into the team and will definitely be a useful addition on that showing. Thought Ferguson and Mcgeouch also did very well.....and even Gallagher when he came on made a decent contribution who was another one forcing a decent stop from Mcgregor. Afraid I'm another disagreeing with Manc though. I thought Logan was horrendous first half and was hoping he would get hooked then for the new loon. However he was better in the second half I do concede.


Hopefully that performance proves to be the fatal blow to any sevconian hopes of going for 1 this season. I always hope they get fucked over no matter who plays them, but it would be really sweet (and hilarious) if the 4 points we have taken off them, plus another 3 when we face them after the split proves to be the exact difference they finish runners up by.


Fuck der Hun and all who sail in her

Kennedy reminds me of Hayes a wee bit.

I thought we started well and had 2 good opportunities to score ( Cosgrove x 2 )

They didn't register their first effort until the 31st Minute, and even that creature Tom Commentator ( Don't know his right name ) said he wasn't used to seeing teams come and play this way ( A comment echoed by Gerrard after the game )

I think we were worthy of our Point, both Keepers had a good game, thought we were fairly solid defensively, but something isn't right with Cosgrove, he's been so far off the pace it's unreal, his touch when through one on one was fucking amateur, before the break, he's burying that! Still not convinced that McGeouch, Ferguson & Ojo can play in the same team to be honest, but they all put in a good shift.

Wee mention to Gallagher, thought he came on and caused problems, initially, he was direct and forced a couple of saves, perhaps just off Cosgrove is his Position?

Anyway, a merited Point, a decent showing and now we really need to build on it, Motherwell lost today, which helps.
It's a math class, the whole deal. Just like every math class, there's a clown in the front, and everybody hates this clown because he raises his hand, he's answering all the questions. What do we do? Move on. Just fucking move on, ready or not. He's deciding we got to move on, he knows his math, I hadn't even figured out about Santa Claus yet.

Will be very interesting to see how their support respond if/when it becomes impossible for them to win anything this season. I don’t think they’ve got the cojones to win the league, and there’s every chance their European campaign will end before the month’s out. That means they’re a bad scottish cup result away from winning hee-haw again....and Gerrard’s position WILL be under scrutiny.

And we all love a bit of Murty-time!

Had a wee look on tribute act media.  There were quite a few Gerrard get to fuck posts.

Hun twitter has been glorious. It's almost better than the game itself.
