Re: The Rest of Scottish Fitba Thread

Why are C****c allowed to go to Dubai during a national lock down and not have to isolate when they return when I'm not supposed to leave my house?

Re: Rangers vs C****c - 2nd January 2021 (match thread)

After the first 15-20 it seemed inevitable that a C****c goal was coming. Thank god for McGregor who almost single handedly (excuse the pun) got us to HT at 0-0. Felt sorry for Roofe getting the hook but SG couldn’t afford to send the same team with the same tactics out for the 2nd half. As soon as...

Thanks Xander.

Sadly I don't think we've had a post since October and it looks like social media wins over the traditional format of the forum.

I still haven't heard from Mike to see if the previous version can be resurrected at all.

We need another goalscorer and Helander should be behind Katic for the foreseeable future. I was very concerned about our defence and would have been looking for us to strengthen when Helander was partnering Goldson but for me Katic is first choice.

I think we really need to bring in another striker, he will get more bans before the end of the season and while Defoe is good as back up I think we need another option.
