He is fast becoming a liability. Passing - woeful BAll retention - woeful effort - woeful set pieces - I'm not even getting started


I'm well aware he won't be sold I may add, he needs a right good slap though


So can anyone please explain why it's excusable to be crap for six months?

Get a grip mate I agree he was piss poor today and probably Tuesday but, punt him ? He is out of form and needs dropped for a few games to give him a kick up the arse but, our squad is paper thin and wont allow us that luxury .

Davis has been shocking all season.

Players can go off the boil for a few games, but not for half a season.

I just can't work out why he's became so poor - from being the best player in the league last season.

Burnsymagic

Like the rest of us your hurting, but knee jerk reactions don't help. He isn't playing his best, but whom in the team of late has? We have a little squad and we badly need a couple of players to come in and do the biz for us. Wee Weiss isn't playing his best of late either. Hopefully it's just a wee blip.

His interplay round the edge of their area was half decent but his creativity in midfield was not up to a player of his ability standard, just my opinion I am not a Davis sniper in any way shape or form just telling it how I saw it today and probably Tuesday if I am honest .

The blind spot to how bad Davis has been all season baffles me. However whittaker and foster were like a bad version of the chuckle brothers today. Weir and Boogie as a partnership, well the novelty seems to have worn off. Walter's one up fron against Inverness pish is also a sore point with me

We're not a one man team nor should we be. Davis' poor form shows up McCulloch, Whittaker and others in the centre of the park. We lack creativity and Davis isn't that type of player. To be honest I didn't think he was our worst player today and looked better second half.

is the OP for real. Davis needs quality beside him as he is the only creative player we have. Everything went through him in the 2nd half. We need guys who can pass a ball 10 yards to a team mate and be comfortable in possession and finds space to play. Dare i say a Barry Ferguson type.

today he was our best outfield player and the only man looking to get on the ball and make things happen

I've been critical of him this season but not today

wonder what game some people watch at times

BroomloanWATP
11-12-2010, 16:16
He is better on the right and drifting in.

The problem is, who do we play in the middle while Edu is out. McCulloch and Hutton would be my choice, but I'm unsure of the creativity in that pairing.

However it couldn't be worse than today.

It's a bit like Kenny dying in SOuth PArk and no one remembers it the next day. This blind spot with Davis is worrying. He is lucky of he has had 3 good games this season. Average or below par most others. I'm a fan of Davis as well, well I was but my patience is wearing thin

you need to look at a bigger picture

lets start with how many players we currently have , lets talk about the movement on the park that opens up space for players like Davis

try watching the game instead of an individual , you`ll learn things about football that way .

He`s been poor , but as of yet I don`t think Rangers have fired on all cylinders in any but 3 games .

Jimenez

Davis like almost the whole team was piss poor in the 1st half but got more creative in the second, never once hid and overall was one of our better players today.

We had a bad day at the office today, it happens. We really do need to get our heads out of our arses in the 1st half. That's the most pressing issue, if we do that we'll win the title.

Weir and Boggie is no longer working, that's pretty evident. Our midfield as a whole don't work hard enough off the ball. Jig just saunters about but Davis is guilty of it too.

ICT were picking out passes with ease.

Overall i just find it worrying, nor do I expect Davis to run about the pitch like a madman every week. IMO though the midfield has to be changed and i don't think Steven himself could argue that e was a certain starter without fail, although it seems as though barring injury (certainly don't want that) it's the only way he and McCulloch will ever miss out.

Davis has had a poor season so far from his usual high standard but take him out of the team and where is the creativity.
He isn't hiding during a game though and will work through his bad run of form.
To say his passing is woeful is a bit much as everything was coming through him second half today.

The whole team were jaded looking today after midweek and to my mind Smith has got to push young players into the team but true to form for Walter he keeps the status quo.

Miller didn't look up for it today despite his goal and never looked confident with the penalty.
Smith has got to start resting players before the season catches up with them.

THE SPL is shite mate. A strong Celtic and we'd be in bother. I realise that's a big if right enough

I don't buy into this nonsense about the SPL being shite. There's a berth of talent between the OF and the rest but we're still talking about professional footballers here.

Its extremely unrealistic to expect us to beat everything in front of us.

What we should be expecting though is the team to learn from their mistakes and start from the 1st whistle, we need to get to grips with that sharpish.

We haven't though, we have been dire all season on the whole and there is little sign of it changing at present. Davis I admit, in my eyes, is a victim of his own success last year, but it's still no excuse for some of the performances he has put in IMO.

Victim of his own success

Since he came he has been hot and cold (helped lose the league in 2008 with half a dozen no shows in the run in)

It runs on a roughly 6 week repeat....,good, bad, good, bad.

We have an inconsistent exceptional talent on our books

baystatebear
11-12-2010, 17:15
The midfield is currently a major weakness. Aside from Davis, there is simply no one who can provide any creative spark. Weiss could contribute in this regard but he is simply too inconsistent. Having Whittaker AND McCulloch starting in the midfield should only be contemplated if Rangers are trying to close a game down. Without support - and today he received very little from McCulloch and nothing whatsoever from Whittaker - the responsibility for generating attacking options falls mainly (and unfairly) on Davis' shoulders. This deficiency is something that I hope Walter recognizes and seeks to address in the Jan. window.

I didnt mention todays performance as I never seen the whole match but what I saw in the first 30 minutes has been a typical Davis performance over the last few months.

some of the comments that people are saying about we drop points and we hate on the players give Davis a break etc

well where are you guys when the likes of Whittaker is getting a new one ripped where are you when McCulloch gets a new one ripped the list goes on yet when the blue eyed boy gets a rough time its get of his back !!

he is on that park just the same as anyone else and plays just as bad as anyone else yet nobody says a bad thing about him IMO thats his downfall as he thinks he can get away with it.

he has the potential to be a massive player for us but he has so far failed to live up with expectations imo he needs to stand up and be counted he is supposed to be the playmaker his prefferd position is in the middle we keeps hearing about yet his performances get worse when he does move inside maybe thats why walter keeps him out on the right.

Boogie is doing my head in with some of his decisions on the park recently. The first ten minutes his ball retention was a disgrace. Ten minutes old in a game we need to be bumping it around and beginning to control the tempo of the game and getting into passing patterns, we do not need our centre half to be running past the full back and the midfield and looking to play a straight chipped pass through the middle of the park to the striker, a pass that might result in a chance at goal once out of every twenty attempts. The guy is a brilliant defender and can catch teams of guard with his forward runs, but right now it is every time he gets the ball and teams are coping easily with it.

The fact is without Davis we really lack any creativity in the middle, it was evident with McCulloch and Edu. Although he hasn't up to expected standards I don't think we have a choice but to stick with him in the team. Davis is a good player who'll find his form again.

coplandrearl36
11-12-2010, 18:28
IMO when we set up at the start of a game to hold what we have, then in the second half start to be more attack minded.
I think the stats for our 1st half performances will show that we are very slow starters and if a team has a go, they can hurt us.

We need to come out the blocks quicker, attack and get the confidence up.

I definately think it is a tactic that must change. Then and only then will players like Davis be more consistant.

Threads like thius astound me, why pick Davis?

Think that is what the OP is kondof getting at - why is he being picked for the team when he has been woeful most games this season??
Nobody should be guaranteed a place and maybe a wee spell on the bench will give him the book up the behind he needs

This is a lot of shite. EVERY footballer has periods where they aren't hitting top form - particularly the bracket of player that we buy. Is Rooney not a 'quality' player then? Calm down FFS. We could look back at this game and think of it as a point won.

It's strange that folk are even comparing Rooney and Davis - to defend that Davis is a quality player.

Davis isn't a quality player, never has been and never will be.

He is a good midfielder on his day, but far from quality.

Ability wise, he's one of, if not the best, we currently have at the club.

Been a bit off form recently but he's only human, he has shown us what he is capable of and that is being the influential midfield playmaker that he is.

Have to laugh at the OP though, punt him? drop him? And replace him with who exactly?

dont think hes comparing them think the point is if a player of rooneys calibre can have a bad spell surely steven davis can and beofre you jump on me i am not putting the two in the same bracket even the greats can have a bad spell

All Steve Davis needs is midfielders to play alongside him. Not full-backs and strikers.

I wouldn't blame him if he grew tired of this and ****ed off. There's only so much one man can do.

In terms of quality at Ibrox i'd say..

McGregor
Bougherra
Davis
Jelavic (looks quality from the little i've seen from him)

Then you have the good and very important players.

Please don't get started.

Everything promising went through Davis in the second half.

Yes through his legs or just passed him did he hit a gers player with one pass. Put him back right mid were he did play well.

Nail on the head right there.

Adam has undoubted ability, that is clear to see.

Playing for a club where the expectation is zero and playing for a club where losing is not an option dictates a massive part of how you perform.

Charlie Adam couldn't handle the expectancy and pressure associated with a Rangers contract.

Davis was shite today. He has been shite most of the season. Having said that he is still the same player he was last season, so its clearly a form issue.
Second half today his workrate was better, but he still failed to impress on the game.
It looks like he may be carrying an injury, but that's just a guess. All players form goes up and down. He wasn't perfect last season, in fact was poor until December, then sublime, then dropped back a but to just playing really well.

Hopefully the best this season is just around the corner. Selling him would be stupid, he is about our only talented player.

All depends on your definition of quality, He is one of the best players at Ibrox but is not at his best just now, although i think that could be said about nearly every one of our outfield players barring Naismith tbh. However they are still playing ok and more importantly digging in and doing their bit for the team, which is why we are where we are.

On his game, he certainly is one of our better players. I don't think we have that great a squad in terms of real quality ability.

Having read the Op and some of the responses, I feel some of the people on this board are crazy. It is one bad result today! From what I seen during the week and most of games this season, we have a good side albeit small, and Steven Davis is a crucial part of that. I honestly think we as a support need to give players a bit more time and a bit more leeway. We get on to players backs instantly, as displayed by the supporters reaction to Weiss. Even though he has been poor, he has produced good displays for us and is a young man learning his trade. I honestly think as a support we need to learn to give players a bit more of a break and be more supportive, especially at Ibrox

Davis has over achieved at ibrox alongside some good players and some dross. We do not play football that suits him and the fact he us getting snash on here suggests we are infiltrated with taigs or people have no understanding of football. He has won titles cups poty and helped get to Manchester. He isn't playing great right now but who is. We are top of table still but playing crap and I blame small squad and poor tactics.

Exactly. People fail to realise some players are quality for the level of the SPL! We have a good enough side. Building for something bigger e.g Europe is a million miles away from Rangers as we are the now. One step at a time. Hysteria is a trademark of the Rangers support and I really wish we could change that

Davis like the rest of the team had a poor first half, he improved a bit after the interval but at least he wasn't hiding. Today was massively dissapionting but there's a bit of an overreaction on a few threads tonight.
I'm sure Davis would benefit from a bit of quality along side him.

Jack Sparrow
11-12-2010, 23:01
I think the OP had a good point, he just didn't make it correctly.

When on form, Davis is the best midfielder in the SPL full stop.

Unfortunately he does not play consistently at the top of his game. He should be bossing every single game the way the likes of Albertz and Van Bronckhorst used to.

It is stupidity to say he should be sold, probably unwise to drop him either, but he certainly does need to produce more often as one of the top earners.

I'm not comparing them as players, as well you know. I'm simply saying that ALL player's form peaks and troughs. The hysterics by many Rangers supporters should someone not maintain top form at all times is completely over the top and not the sort thing that encourages consistancy of results (lets drop 4 or 5 players, we dropped a point..!). We are also operating in a market for players that means they will not 'reach the heights' in every game. To get that you're talking 15 million minimum.

But hey, let's add Davis to the list of players who get a hard time by the supporters - What team that would be! (Arteta, Hutton and Ferguson seem to be holding their own in the premiership..)
