Tav Bates Cardosa Wallace

Jack Rossiter
Pena

Miller Morelos McKay

Almost impossible to predict the team and even the formation. I notice we are the shortest odds of all teams in Europe to win this week so imagine he will go with 2 strikers.

He may well go with Dalcio instead of McKay, candieas is not in the squad because he is still registered with benfica until the 1st of July apparently

I think a few positions will still be not fully decided...

Wes
Tav Cardoso Bates Wallace
Jack Rossiter
Dalcio Niko McKay
Morelos

Would be my starting team with Pena and Herrera getting upto speed.

Admittedly I've no idea if Dalcio/Candeis are truly an upgrade on what we already had and will they truly strengthen or first 11?

If Waghorn starts then Pedro must go 😀

Everyone in that lineup got at least an hour against St Johnstone with a view to that being the starting lineup. The only questionable one is Kranjcar and if he isn't good to go Windass will play.

strider
25-06-2017, 09:00
As others have mentioned, I'm pretty convinced it'll be the team that started the St Johnstone friendly.

Sub appearances for a few, a strong win, and use the second leg as a fitness exercise for those needing games.

Maybe Morelos will start instead of Waghorn, but that would be the only change I'd see happening.

I would be stunned if the team wasn't the one who started against St Johnstone, given the minutes they have played in all 3 bounce games.

McKay won't be near it, Candeias is inelligable and the 2 Mexicans are at least a month away from playing so we can rule them out until the league stuff starts.

If we start the game with Holt and Waghorn I will be really disappointed, Morelos is match fit and has been banging the goals in for Helsinki

I still have concerns over Bates at the back. He tried his best last season but he is poor on the ground.

Foderingham
Tavernier McCrorie Cardosa Wallace
Jack Rossiter
McKay Krancjar Dalcio
Morelos

25-06-2017, 09:25
As above, Candeias not registered in time due to a quirk with Turkish FA.

Would prefer that Waghorn is nowhere near the team. Would rather stick Morelos in or use Miller in advanced role and draw from our many midfield/attacking options to replace him in the 3 behind the striker. Team for me would be:

Wes
Tav
Cardoso
McRorie
Wallace

Jack
Rossiter

Dalcio
Niko
McKay or Miller

Miller or Morelos

Folk really think Pedro suffered last season and will willingly pick McKay or Waghorn over the multitude of options he has signed

They have 2 legs and can run, doesnt matter how recently they stepped off the plane

The team this Thursday will be vastly different come August.

There is no way either of the Mexicans will be featuring.

They've barely done any training for the past 4 weeks.

The warm up games are the best guide to who'll start on Thursday. .

Wes

Tav Bates Cardoso Wallace

Jack Rossiter

Dalcio Kranjcar Mckay

Miller

The team will change dramatically over the next few weeks as our new signings get their fitness levels up to the required standard.

I reckon Miller and Kranjcar will still have a big part to play in the season ahead, although possibly quite often from the bench.

25-06-2017, 09:33
We need to start scoring goals and it looks as though we'll be relying on Kenny Miller again come Thursday.

Let's hope Progress are shit and we can get some more players up to speed for the next round.

Then we should be very worried about drawing 0-0 and it getting all Kaunas

Numerous Premier League teams have embarassed themselves in our absence

And last years players were of that level

Its a crucial match wherever physically possible Pedro will want his players involved

Northampton Lodger

I don't see the problems playing the Mexicans even though they have barely had a training session. We are an extremely patient support and it's not as if anybody will be calling them duds and wanting them shipped back at the first opportunity if they don't score two or three each.

Very true, I'd be tempted to start them both and see if they can get off the mark.

Plus first game, sell out and all that should give them an idea of what it means

I think Morelos may start actually given his fitness will be up

jackdaniels78
25-06-2017, 09:56
I can see why the two Mexicans may not be ready but Morelos is match fit and should play. Caixinha said himself we have not been good enough in the last third in the last couple of games.

We are asking for trouble if we play players that continually failed last season especially under the pressure of a European night in front of a full house

Not sure as I am not sure just how ready the new boys are. However, I am very worried about Waghorn starting. He's been absolutely pathetic in the friendlies. We don't need him up front showing how incapable he is in putting the ball in the net - we need a different option on without question.

Kaunas are a level, if not several levels, above this mob. This is a team who have never won a single game in Europe. They are the club level equivalent of Gibraltar and will offer nothing more than a fitness exercise.

This team is only about half the side that will be our regular starting 11 for the season ahead in my opinion, but will still be far to much for this lot we play on Thursday.

I will admit I have only seen glimpses of the pre season games - why would anyone think Waghorn will start ? Surely Morelos will start seen as he's in the middle of his season and we need to slot in a few goals ?

Regardless of who starts, we'll win this game by 4 or 5 goals. The teams in this stage of the Europa League are terrible, probably SPFL League 2 standard.

Yes still injured mate.

My only essential requirement is Waghorn nowhere near the first XI. Hopeless finisher.

If that's true fair enough but if we're going into later qualifiers without them and still haven't secured Dorrans/McLean/Walker then we can forget about our goal of reaching the group stages.

No chance we're getting past some of the sides in Q3 with Holt and Waghorn in the team.

I wouldn't be totally confident against the Cypriots either.

BinnieBoy
25-06-2017, 10:58
Disappointing if Waghorn starts over Morelos. The lad has been playing regularly and scoring regularly. Surely he starts? He must be the most match fit player we have.

As has been said though the St Johnstone lineup probably gives a big clue about the selection for this.

I'd go:

Foderingham
Tav Cardoso Bates Wallace
Windass Jack Rossiter McKay
Miller Morelos

bigy
25-06-2017, 11:08
Candieas is out because he can't be registered till 1st July - something to do with the previous loan deal he was on not expiring till then but don't know.

For me though the Mexicans need to play on Thursday. In all seriousness no matter who we put out we should beat a team from Luxembourg - even if it's tight. After we put them out a week on Tuesday (9 days time), we then have just over a week before the Cypriots and we'll need as many of our new signings firing by then as possible.

To get them fit they need games, and i'd much rather give them time against Progres than throw them in against Limassol.

I assume you're talking about young Aidan Wilson as Danny is injured?

He's still very young and isn't ready for 1st team action.

He is a good young prospect and has plenty time on his side.

As for Danny Wilson, when he's fit I fully expect him to be behind both Bates and McCrorie in the pecking order.

He's had countless chances and he simply cannot defend, particularly at set pieces.

25-06-2017, 13:12
and the 2 Mexicans are at least a month away from playing .

I'm not doubting you here or having a dig but how do you come to this conclusion?

As far as i know, they both played for their last clubs on 7/5 which i know is some time ago but how does that equate to being a month away from playing for us?

Surely after 7 weeks off they'll be fresh & raring to go...the only way they'll get "Match fit" is by playing games?

Let's be honest here though, this is pub team level. We should be able to play any XI from our squad and get a tie-ending victory.

Remember tims thought that last year and got beat 1-0from pub team.

Now this team seems a bit more like it.

Miller cam help Morales through his first action.

The Mexicans can then get 30mins in the second half hopefully as we're 3 or 4 up.

Waghorn is almost a 100% cert to start on Thursday.

Oh goodie goodie. Hope we don't lose a goal early.

Just a reminder

Aberdeen were drawing 1-1 with Fola Esch on June 30th 2016 before 2 injury time goals rescued them

http://m.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/36661039

They then lost 1-0 in Luxembourg

Anyone that thinks a Rangers team full of most of last seasons failures will breeze it is in for a shock

Jack Holt
Miller Kranjcar Dalcio
Waghorn

I'd have this though:

I'm guessing it's too early for Pena and Herrera

I don't see the problems playing the Mexicans even though they have barely had a training session. We are an extremely patient support and it's not as if anybody will be calling them duds and wanting them shipped back at the first opportunity if they don't score two or three each.

I'm so glad we don't fly off the handle and make rash judgements about new signings :)

I would rather play without a striker than play Waghorn though...maybe Pedro is hoping Progres are duff and that if the ball bounces off him and into the net that someone will buy him :D

I think Morelos has been training long enough that he could make the starting XI.

Rossiter for Jack, Pena to come on for niko and Herrera for Morelos.

Why, Holt offers absolutely nothing.

Rossiter can tackle, pass, break up play, has positional sense, awareness and bite. Holt is powder puff and useless.

JJ said he can play any of the forward positions when describing him.

I think for us he'll be seen through the middle in the main, though.

After watching the highlights of the last couple of games I am thinking a 50% fit Herrera can only be an improvement on Waghorn, Miller also not looking very sharp.

We looked better when candieas came on (I know he is unavailable) and actually thought dalcio looks quite promising

I agree with you CC but I also agree with BSOI in that Holt will probably play ahead of Rossiter on Thursday unfortunately, just for the sheer fact Holt has had a lot more game time in the 3 friendlies than Rossiter.

No. His registration took too long coming back from Turkey or something like that?

The thought of Bates being one of our 4 CBs is terrifying! Anyone genuinely believing he is an upgrade on Wilson or even Kiernan is kidding themselves on.

Bates is nowhere near as bad as people are making out, he will be in the squad and used when needed. He's a bit shakey on the ball sometimes but he wins tackles, is decent in the air and at passing plus he isn't as slow as people say, Bates will only improve with training and playing with Alves.

I've said it on here before, it is very rare that I criticise one of our players.

David Bates is one of those rarities.

He is never good enough for Rangers, never will be. A terrible footballer.

Dalcio Niko McKay
Morelos

Would be my starting team with Pena and Herrera getting upto speed.

Admittedly I've no idea if Dalcio/Candeis are truly an upgrade on what we already had and will they truly strengthen or first 11?

If Waghorn starts then Pedro must go 😀

That would be my starting line up as well. If not Morelos then Miller.

Candeias isn't eligible to play this round mate. Swap him for Dalcio and that'll probably be the team.
