When you're in a situation like you are it's just about getting in all the help you can. I remember Marlon Harewood being instrumental in keeping Hartlepool up a few seasons back. Not that there were any questions over Harewood's attitude like you have with Ranger, but he was still a middling striker, unfit and well past his best.Ron took part in Supporters meeting last night and confirmed Ranger has signed but not quite fit so that's why he hasn't played. Clueless as to why it hasn't been announced by the club probably avoiding the attention he brings.
We saw first hand what he can do when he was here previously, he's big, good with his feet, can run at defenders with power - everything we need atm. He had a kid 7 weeks ago maybe that will make the penny drop, not holding my breath but then he could singlehandedly keep us up.
Of course it can also backfire, like when we brought Gary Madine back in a desperate attempt to avoid relegation from League One, only for him to get convicted of assault and given an electronic tag and curfew that made it impossible to play him.
