No Grant Hall which is bad news.

No Washington, so could he be on his way?

Wheeler must be wondering why he signed

Manning going out on loan maybe along with Goss?

Wouldn't be surprised to see Furlong back out on loan

Ngbakoto must be on his way

I'd be fascinated to know what happened in training since Friday to elevate Smyth from no where to starting and relegate Wheeler out of the squad. Absolutely no continuity, no wonder our strikers are struggling, they may be limited but give them some time to find form. Matt Smith is like playing with ten men and if that's Cousin's at wing back then forget being sacked, Holloway wants putting out of his misery. I don't want to see us sack a manager but the bloke is coming across completely flipping clueless at the moment. I'm still amazed people thought this was a good appointment.

Now go and prove me wrong.

Holloway was absolutely the right appointment at the time, the club was suffering with depression when JFH left and Ollie got us going again.

However the end of last season and this season has seen us dragged down again although injuries have played a big part.

Unfortunately there is a difference between finding form and developing a completely new physique which is the issue with Smith, he's completely immobile.

Sorry, how can that be the case, he took us to the brink of relegation and is doing the same again less than a year later, 'get us going' going on a long run of loses. Just because he thumped his chest and told us how special we are? He wasn't a caretaker manager. It's a disastrous appointment and the mood is just as low.

Bollocks, close from Smith.


Smyth's certainly having a crack.

You're absolutely wrong. He was the wrong appointment and came within a whisker of getting us relegated. In his second string of 6 consecutive defeats (when all we needed was a point or a win to stay up) he was totally clueless. He should have been shown the door at the end of last season as it was obvious he didn't have what was required.

There's no room for sentimentality in these matters.

Only following the BBC live text (which is bad enough), but 2 mins between our set piece and their penalty - you're having a laugh, Rangers! (I'm not.) :x
