  1. Bring back Gilmour and Ballatyne from loan and get Crawford and McPherson in the bin pronto
  2. Would have to agree with this. We have an inability to break teams down and that was typified yesterday with St Mirren sitting in and being difficult to breakdown, Jim Goodwin pretty much admitted that his team was set up. Parking Tanser right on OHalloran prevented Mikey getting any space and prevented him being able to run at Tanser which is likely where we saw our best attacking opportunities. We lack any sort of guile when spoony is missing and quickly resort to going long, this was slightly improved in the 2nd half. All these things were apparent at home last season, the main difference being I was watching on a laptop or phone, and could distract myself with other things and come back to the football, we don't have that luxury when watching it in the flesh, which amplifies how poor our home form is. A big January coming up and hopefully with financial backing and the HoR onboard we can see some positive movement for targets.
  3. I actually thought it was a clever way of distributing a lot of tickets very quickly. The season ticket holders would likely prevent selling to away fans through self policing and the potential was the game could have sold out many times over through sales to season ticket holders alone, but the club bargained on there being a balance. I used my ticket to buy 10 for family and friends and my dad's season ticket to buy an extra 1 for someone who was struggling on WAP. The ticket office would have been unable to shift that number of tickets in that short space of time. I would not be surprised if the same system is used for the LASK game.
  4. Are you both needing tickets still. I might be able to get some bought on my dad's season. In the north stand.
  5. John Hartson, left over from the Celtic match
  6. A lot of teams are having a big clear out. I imagine this will partly be down to COVID and cutting cloth to suit and lowering wage bills. Our squad is tiny in comparison to others but I have been really surprised that it was only the Celtic COVID game where we looked absolutely thread bare. No too many players out there I would be clambering for so far. I trust Callum to know what he needs in.
  7. I wonder what will happen with Callum Hendry. When he left to go out on loan (to bigger and better things) we were languishing near the bottom of the league. Fast forward a few months and all of his team mates now have 2 winners medals and secured European football. I still think he can do a job for us and our style of play would suit him better now. I think he can do a job for us but whether he wants away though might be another matter.
  8. And are also under performing and could do with the big red reset button being pushed for the season.
  9. I would like to think that any offer for McCann in this window would be accepted only with the condition of being loaned back until the summer. If we need the cash right now that is.
  10. I agree I think Holt would have been a more astute signing rather than Bryson. As well as printing youth we do need a Matt Butcher type signing, a player at a good age, fairly tall and athletic and has played at a good level and needing first team football. There may be some mileage in promoting the young guys to the first team but as you say a bit of a gamble.
  11. Do we not have a number of highly regarded young players that play in midfield? I was hearing Cameron Bannatyne getting a good write up while on loan with Montrose, that is the name off the top of my head. The fact that most of our loans were recalled with a view to moving them up a league might suggest there is some sort of succession planning going on.
  12. I think you are correct on both counts with regard to sanctioning of signings and Davidson needing to find a way to get the squad to perform. I suppose in my last post I was getting at, was investment being needed to play the current system. I think there is perhaps other systems that would get the best out of the squad without too much tinkering with personnel.
  13. This will be an important window and probably more highly pressured than any other January window we have had for a good while. Tommy was always one for doing down the Jan window suggesting that there isn't many good deals to be done and mainly desperate teams are out panic buying. Our situation is a bit different as this will be Callum's first transfer window after playing a run of games. If he is to persist with the current system then I would hope he has players identified who can play it and also the ones who can not and need moved on. In saying that I am fully expecting the one out, one in patter again, which comes every window. Dreary stuff. For all the chat at the end of last season of not missing Kennedy, I would suggest that is exactly what we are missing. A player that can make something happen and take on his man etc
  14. Quite glad I don't have to leave the house or make any real effort to watch games. My blood pressure would certainly be higher if I did. It looks like Callum has chosen his hill to die on with the formation/philosophy and we are all mere spectators and will ruefully have to accept the consequences. Plus point we didn't concede any.
  15. Right, that's me out. Better things to be doing. Absolutely doing nothing in the middle of the park and they are playing straight through us, I fear them running up a hefty goal tally based on what I have seen so far
