    Tommy seems more and more to be using deflection tactics to move discussion away from his own shortcomings of late
    Sunny training camp my arse. Yes, it probably would be good, but is miles away from being essential

    Brilliant result on Saturday and, no one can argue, fully deserved. It does beg the question if we can do that to Rangers why are we not performing at a better level week in week out. I honestly believe the squad of players we have we should be pushing for a comfortable 5th place finish and should never be in a position where we are going 6 games without a goal. The team that performed so well on saturday should be given the chance to do so again this weekend but i have serious doubts whether that will happen as our manager  consistently mucks about with the starting line up. I feel this is unfairly causing a lack of confidence in some players which is having a negative impact.

    Always took my kids to away games at both the bigot brothers, hasn't seemed to have effected them in later life, probably gave them a good insight into the reasons never to support these two bastions of hate, half the time they were oblivious to all the war cries!, or maybe my parenting skills are just crap!

    Amazing stuff . Three scorers who didn't have a goal between them for about 4 months

    This result and performance from the team and individuals will hopefully give everyone involved the confidence boost that's needed to turn the corner from the past few months, to get back to the winning ways at the start of the season and make MOH think, do I really want to go back to this sh1t?

    Cummins hasn't scored since May. Alston hasn't scored since March, and Johnstone hadn't scored February

    It doesn't. And as Blueheaven says, neither does anyone else's.
    The team is playing badly, and if folk want to criticise then that's fair enough. The style of football has been pretty hard to watch for the past season and a half.
    But to go on a rant that the only reason some fans back Tommy Wright is because of a Cup win 3 1/2 years ago is quite clearly as big a pile of nonsense as anyone could come out with. 
    We've been in Europe 7 (?) seasons in our history. In 4 full seasons in charge, the current manager took us there on 3 of those.
    We finished 4th for the past 3 seasons in a row.  Other than two separate 3rd place finishes, that's the highest position we've achieved since the premier league started in 1975, so to do it in 3 consecutive seasons is no mean feat.
    No one is untouchable, but he's easily the most successful manager in our history, so let's not downplay that simply because things aren't going well just now.

    By your response I gather you are a bit of a smart arse. Not only was your initial post utter shit, your reading of people is too.
    You may also understand that sometimes fewer words are more effective at delivering a message than a long-winded attempt at trying to make yourself out to be intellectually superior to the person who disagrees with you, which I doubt you rarely are

    It is down to the coaches, according to someone close to Zander who we spoke to after a recent match. Tommy supposedly wants his keeper to stay on the line and the defenders to attack and clear the crosses. That's working well..........
    It's fine when you have a Frazer Wright, Duberry etc who will do this, but we've not got that kind of player just now. Seems madness to stop a guy who's 6'5, and has the advantage of being able to use his hands, come for a f**king cross.

    Remember when Ranieri achieved the impossible, winning the league against massive odds, beating teams with a far superior budget
    The following season, Leicester were awful. Dropping down the league, no performance, no belief, skirting dangerously with the relegation places
    The board sacked him. Pundits, players, press were in shock. How could they do such a thing??
    A few months later, many of them in hindsight were praising the Board as Leicester found new life and turned it around. A brave, but probably correct move
    Ranieri will always be a hero to the Leicester fans. The Board didn't let sentiment stand in the way
    Are we there yet? You know what, maybe we are. Is this team looking like coming out of what is a real slump? Will it be too late before any reaction is forthcoming?
    Im not accepting the 'we are a yo yo club and it's bound to happen one day" stuff, nor am I not a real 'fan'. I'm also not fanatical or blinkered
