Three open goals missed from a yard
Three decent penalty shouts turned down
Two dodgy penalty appeals turned down
Have to say far more fun than last season, or the one before that, despite the 32/39/-9 stats from earlier this week.

Sad watching Nakhi making those runs, taking up those positions, but no Eze or Chair providing the service.
Brizzle ain't going to see the best of him unless they adapt a little.

Dylan Duncan joins Dunfermline Athletic on loan, until the end of the season
at 19:33 28 Jan 2020
Didn't realise how poor his form, or how far out of favour he is since joining Blackburn, 1 goal in 26 appearances.
Apart from his dive for a pen against us last season, which put me right off him as a player, I had always thought he was one of those magic "just knows how to score a goal" players. I remember him getting a hat trick (or was it four?) for Forest against us in an FA Youth Cup game.
I know he was £7 million a year ago but I wonder if his stock has fallen far enough for us to make a cheeky bid now we need another striker. Four years younger than Shankland and maybe not very much more expensive.

|When did we become so nasty?|
at 12:56 26 Jan 2020
Over the years I have been a member of the various forums (fora?) that have appeared as the wonderful connected world has evolved. From the original newsgroup, through the various .orgs and ending up here on LFW. Yes there have been sites ahead of their time. Back in the drummer boy days, WATRB's was a cess pit for aggrieved, pubescents to vent their spleen. On the other hand LFW in its various guises has always seemed to follow the happy median of sensible comment and freedom of speech.
These days of course the number of fora have multiplied with many excellent places are sadly underused, Indy R's, and have been joined by Facebook groups and the wonderful unfettered opportunity to post invective of Twitter.
Over the past twenty odd years, while all of this has been developing, Rangers have been on our usual manic depressive roller coaster. At every level we have had both truly appalling, and inspirational people involved in our club. Both inept and competent.
However, in this time we seem to have pushed the boundaries where criticism was reasonably argued, yes strongly and urgently, but never with the poisonous invective we seem to find as the norm today.
Players, management, administration and ownership should never be above criticism but the spiteful comments seems to be on an ever more toxic level.
The abuse heaped on Joe Lumley and Josh Scowen has been horrendous. Yes we have always had an appetite for destroying our own. I remember the abuse Mick Leach used to take. I recall only to well the Loft singing “Hello, hello Masson must go”. But directly messaging players and telling them to fnck off an die is a whole different level.
The Click bait sites are currently making merry on harvesting Tweets regarding Jack Clarkes full debut. A kid who has barely played for a year is being told to fnck off as he is complete waste of time.
I’m not sure why I have written this post. I know that there is not a chance of attitudes miraculously changing. In many ways it reflects changes in society in general where it is open house for absolute black and white criticism of politicians, slebs or indeed anyone who sticks their head above the parapet. No allowances for shades of grey in arguments.
But it is all so hugely self destructive.

Well respected Spuds source on Twitter saying we have beaten off opposition to get him on loan for the rest of the season.
Does beg two questions though.
1. He couldn't get enough game time at Leeds
2. A winger?

|Does BOS's development remind anyone else of Sir Les?|
at 16:34 5 Jan 2020
Definitely had something when he first started getting a game or two but no signs of what a player he might become. Then all of a sudden becoming a force of nature where he just became unplayable.
Not saying Bright is anywhere near that yet, but showing his game is developing fast, very fast.

It's that time again. After a shit run, confidence has been recovered and the fans fancy increasing our number of away wins.
Back to earth, 2-1 to the Jasper Carrotts

Are they going to be in deep doo doo, with regard to non compliance with FFP over the three seasons culminating in their promotion?
Will we be held responsible and have to pay their fine?

With Derby County's drink-driving footballers sentenced this week, we can tell you a bit more about their big night out.
* Captain Richard Keogh's debit card was rejected three times in the pub when he went to pay the final £800 of the bill.
* Staff said he started kicking off when he couldn't get his card to work, with one of them labelling him "the worst and biggest cnt" they'd ever dealt with.
* The bar bill from the evening's drinks was almost three grand and included 75 Jagermeisters, 38 tequilas and 54 sambucas.

Sky (OK yes it Sky hype) reporting on Leicesters' hunt for Harry Maguire replacement.
Bournemouth want SEVENTY MILLION for Nathan Ake
To much for Leicester who are now looking at Burnleys' Tarkowski. Burnley only want FOURTY MILLION for him.

QPR boss Mark Warburton has just told me that after the announcement of two signings today, another two are imminent. Expect Hugill !
