Go Pedro, please just go

Now I dont know if many of you remember but I pretty much gave Warburton my full backing and was always willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.

He may have made errors, in tactics and also recruitment but at least he had an idea, a philosophy and a plan. We could all see that and some/many may have not agreed with, we could all at least see what he was trying to accomplish, you could see the teams structure.

However under Pedro from day one I havnt seen ANY structure or game plan especially in attack. Usually teams go about attacking in two different ways by being open, fluid, expansive and creative (what Warburton tried to do) or by having clear instructions in how to exploit certain weaknesses,, focus on certain areas or utilise your own strengths.

I have read many on here saying anyone wanting him out already needs to get a grip. But from the game last week in the stands with folk I know, on the bus home, with folk in work, I have asked the same question.....

Do you honestly believe Pedro is the man to take us forward, do you see us improving. The answer I get is unanimous "honestly i cant see it, I hope he can" or to that effect.

Now all the bears on here before you have a go at this article ask yourself do you think Pedro can close the gap between us and Celtic. Do you honestly think he will be here longer than 2 years ?! As I said from the people I have asked so far not a single person genuinely thought he is the man for us.

Real Madrid?

Ronaldo wears navy and red boots all the time

As for Chelsea, there'd be no boots left if they banned rivals colours for a London club

Yep Real Madrid, there's a good book on all of their weird wee rules on values. I will look it up. I can't remember if it extends to boots but it covers very similar things.

They do yes. Real Madrid, Chelsea and Everton all have a similar policy with their rivals, it just isn't really deemed back page worthy.

It is also probably something unofficially that would have been in place for years. I can't imagine anyone turning up with green boots when Smith was in charge, and I remember the furore last year when Celtic tried to give away a pair of red white and blue new balance boots or when Aberdeen released a blue away top.

I think the reaction to this has been a bit over the top.

The boot thing is nothing and only an issue due to how poor things are onfield

Don't take this the wrong way but rangers in the football industry are the equivalent of sports direct in retail - toxic. None of us would be falling over to get a job at sd unless it was silly money or we had no clue, came from mexico or whatever. That is the reality. All the football employees are damaged goods in some way to end up there. Harsh but true.

I agree with that Silver, sadly

Must be Red, white, navy, black & claret.

Must be a tough time for their players to find suitable boots.

None at the moment, they were banned from wearing red a couple of years ago - think it was under Mourinho. I remember it being discussed at the time.

As for the Everton one, here is your confirmation. In fact Koeman even banned red baubles on the Xmas tree after a fan backlash.

Here is a Sporting Lisbon player being banned from wearing red boots due to rivalry with Benfica
