Huysegems is a very skilled player who allways works his ass off, but he is an extremely poor finisher. When he scores its sometimes Zlatanesque but nowadays he still manages to miss most easy tap ins. He could be a good player for the long term.chivoexpiatorio said:Talking of left wingers, if Rangers were to go out in the summer and get another who would you like to see? For example let's just say we finally found someone to take Lovenkrands.
I'd like to see Buffel's international team mate Stein Huysegems arrive at the club. The guy is only 23 and has very good pace- not bad skill either. Who can forget the way he tore Zurab to shreds in our tie with Alkmaar this season.
I had a few doubts if he made the right choice to join the Rangers after I read some rather negative reviews about here on the forum, but last night (Belgium Bosnia 4-1) he was outstanding. A constant treat on the right-flank running past his defenders and he scored a very nice goal.chivoexpiatorio said:Lol, that would be nice- even now when you compare him to Lovenkrands.
I don't think we'll ever have a player of Laudrup's class again but I'm getting a good feeling from the way Buffel is finding his touch. I noticed in the papers that both Prso and Vignal were praising the Belgian too.
I read the Belgian NT thread and was really pleased to hear he played well. There are some misguided people writing him off as a flop here, but that's ridiculous. I think most of the Rangers fans have every faith that he'll be a success here. Toughening him up can only make a better player as well. I've certainly noticed a difference in the way he approaches physical challenges since he joined. He's not afraid to shoulder charge defenders twice his size now. I'm not saying he wins these challenges, but at least he tries . Hopefully I can find a clip of his goal cos I heard it was a cracker.Kampfschwein said:I had a few doubts if he made the right choice to join the Rangers after I read some rather negative reviews about here on the forum, but last night (Belgium Bosnia 4-1) he was outstanding.

Scottish football definately made him stronger and more agressive. Keep it the good work lads.
Sorry read this a bit late. Yeah he sure can, hes got a good techniquechivoexpiatorio said:Cheers for the information UtregBear. It's good to get the feedback from someone who sees the player alot more that we do. You say is finishing is poor but what about his final ball? Can he still deliver the ball to the strikers from the wide areas?
Well Gio became a lot better when playing at Rangers, I think that was due to the physical football in the SPL as well. I think boys really become men in Scottish footballchivoexpiatorio said:Strangely enough in the build up to the Italy-Scotland game yesterday they were talking about Gattuso. They were saying that they believed he got alot of his aggression and power from playing in Scottish football with Rangers. It's not something you would associate with an Italian footballer- a midfield terrier.
That may be the case with Buffel. He's certainly not going to improve technically but improving the physical side might be a better balance for the ability he already has.
