    Just something that crossed my mind.Does anyone know how much Ranger/clubs monitor forums such as these.My thinking is that "fans", the bulk pretty much know there football and a player when they see one, etc.Considering it's the fans that ultimately lose managers there jobs I just wonder how much they listen to our opinions be on a player.I mean how many fans are there of our great club.Potentially a million scouts out there, thoughts?

    If you ask the fans then you'll get 100,000 different opinions on players. For every fan who thinks a player is great another will tell you why he's a waste of a shirt or at least a waste of money.

    The amount of fans that complain that such and such isn't getting a game and then when he does, he's shit or doesn't , and get's moved out and goes down a division or three, sinking without trace, is amazing. But then they say, "the manager ruined him" as if that can happen, so the manager is always on to a loser.

    For me, I realised I really can't spot a player after I was highly impressed with Moses Ashikodi in an U20 game on Rangers TV. He now plays for Walton Casuals...

    Well, we're just a fans forum... I doubt we can put together a semi-professional team. :)

    I would break the bank and sign Nathan Ake from Chelsea, make him captain and build our team around him. How's that for scouting?

    Remember watching La Liga and spotting Gabby Amato when he played with Mallorca.

    Used to talk about him like I would Messi these days and boom! Advocaat signed him. Didn't really hit the heights I'd have hoped but I do recall some pretty important and spectacular goals. None more so than his debut against Shelbourne and of course his worldy against the filth.
