Honestly? Does Gio really believe we can get third place in the Champions League?
Doesn’t he know that with a 4-goal advantage over Rangers, to avoid a head to head goal comparison we not only have to now beat Ajax, we also have to at least get a draw with Liverpool at Ibrox to avoid a head to head comparison?
I’m not even going to suggest we get a draw with Napoli away from home, because we already know Gio’s tactics when we play away. And that is sit back and pray Napoli somehow score an own goal, because we sure as hell are not going to have a shot on goal.
In the real world, because of Gio’s deliberate refusal to send out a team that is set up to win away from home, and his deliberate decisions that have now hamstrung our team to just thumping the ball up the field and hope, we cannot even dream of getting a point in the remaining matches.
Gio….I hope you’re listening; because last year everyone was saying “make us dream”.
Now all we are saying is God, just “make this end”.
It is really sad, but just now it would be better for Rangers to drop out of Europe, than to prolong the embarrassment.
Because, be honest now, what top player would want to play for a team of losers?
And the more painful 4 nil 3 nil and pathetic overly defeatist 2 nil loses we suffer, the more difficult it becomes to attract top talent.
What we are saying is the decision to save just a few million this summer may have cost us far more than just our pride.
It has totally knocked the stuffing out of our team, dented everyone’s confidence and standing in European football, and it has made it more difficult to balance our books by the careful selling and buying of players.
And Gio thinks his tactics are perfect…
