  1. St Johnstone v Rangers 13/10/17

    The defence can probably be worked with and sorted - it's happened before. What we have as striking options right now probably won't be improved.
  2. St Johnstone v Rangers 13/10/17

    That's a good point, but I can't see beyond our current lack of creativity/sharpness up front.
  3. Aberdeen v Saints 30/9/17

    Don't often post much negative about players, although it has been known, but I'm struggling to see any positives with Denny Johnstone. For all folk complain about Cummins, I can see his effort and workrate. With DJ I can't see much, even in his short time on the pitch. Maybe he's just a bit out of practice?
  4. Aberdeen v Saints 30/9/17

    He said in an interview that it was strange but it would be the first time he wanted Saints to lose. That's when it finally struck me. I'll cheer him if he acknowledges our support but once the game starts he's just another opposition player. I'm not convinced that we've been playing that well. We have in spells, but can't seem to start and then play for a whole game. I still can't believe that we won the Motherwell game 4-1. We were both lumping high balls up from the start and 'Well looked the better and more physical side for much of the first half. Events took an odd turn after that, but we were never comfortable in that game until later on. If we could start well and not fade or begin to sit deep then we could hand someone a heavy defeat. Our best performance was at Celtic and we don't need to fear anyone - if we give Rangers the amount of respect we have in recent previous games I'll be disappointed. We don't do that against anyone else, why them? Agree about the potential and top gear. If we could find some consistency and sustain it for a bit we could finish top three. That would upset a lot of people in the Scottish media.
  5. A Lackluster Murray Davidson

    It was interesting to hear from a club physio about confidentiality. If a player tells the physio he isn't fit the physio is not obliged to inform the manager. Quite the opposite. Patient confidentiality rules. Not linking this in any way to Muzz feeling/being sick. Just a point of interest.
  6. Player Contracts + Transfers

    The sole idea behind the EPL was to maximise the number of 'events', thus maximising revenue. The events are ManU v ManC v Arsenal v Liverpool v Chelsea, etc. What they've got is some of that plus Burnley v Watford v Bournemouth v Fulham v Hull v Norwich, etc. While huge clubs languish in divisions 2 & 3 (or whatever they call them nowadays), the model still works, but would work even better moneywise if all the small clubs were down. Up here our media were in a state when Rangers, Hearts, Hibs, Dundee United were down and ecstatic when any of them came back up. No doubt the money improves, but not necessarily the product.
  7. Never mind, £270k is worth having. Might mean we can compete better against our next European opponents who will likely be a step up from Cowdenbeath.
  8. Isn't 11 x £270k the £3m?
  9. Don't forget 'caught in possession.' I lost count.
  10. Joe won lots of headers first half. Tommy said we were even on chances created and took positives from the game. I think we won heavily on being caught in possession and some of the other negatives Broon mentioned above. Overall pretty dire stuff. Thistle were way ahead of us.
  11. New Season Fixtures

    As I don't like the egg chasing game the only reason I'd go near Murrayfiled is to see the Saints. Be good to see it though but as said above I doubt there'd be much atmosphere.
  12. Ibrox latest...

    I was unhappy about the Rangers situation at the time, and don't accept it even now, but I'm not consumed by rage over it.
  13. Disabled Parking at McDiarmid

    You have very little idea what I have or haven't done and thus are speaking from a position of ignorance (I mean uninformed, not in the rude sense). If you can't or won't come to a meeting or don't want to, I'd be happy to meet you before a game sometime for a chat, listen to your views and maybe explain how and why we started, how we setup and operate and what we've achieved - it is not insignificant. Again, a genuine offer.
  14. Disabled Parking at McDiarmid

    I neither have, nor wish to have, a position. It was a genuine invitation to come and see what happens and what we do, which discussion on one issue on this forum cannot provide. I am sorry you feel and write the way you do. That you choose to interpret things the way you have is a shame.
