    RandomGuy got a reaction from Cagey in Taxi For Davidson   
    15 players have left this Summer, and he's been given almost nothing to replace them with.
    Last season TW had Butcher, Holt, McCann and Craig when Davidson was out. CD has had McCann and Craig.
    Smallest squad in the division by a distance and not allowed any more signings. TW got out at the right time.

    I refuse to believe Bryson is going to be cheaper than Jason Holt, for an example. One is entering his prime with no injury issues, the other is 34 this season with recurring ankle injuries.
    We've ended up with Bryson instead of Holt because there was almost no future planning in place this Summer. TW left, and the whole club shut down until Davidson was hired months later. We then have to wait further months for him to find and identify targets, and then move on them.
    It seems obvious both the club and Davidson knew he would take charge after Millwalls season was done, surely they shouldve been putting moves into motion before he even joined for players?
    Its a common theme with Saints, and one that is leading to a general decline. The youth products are supporting the club.

    We've not conceded more than 1 goal in a game barring Rangers, who are pumping everybody.
    Of the 5 goals we've conceded in the other 6 games, 2 have been penalties. You then have the deflected effort against Aberdeen which is unlikely to be repeated. Motherwells goal was from 20 yards and down to the midfield.
    If you believe the defence is guaranteed to concede every game then you cant actually be watching the games, as its quite clear they could do very little about the goals conceded aside from the Kilmarnock goal. So 1 defensive error leading to a goal in 6 games.
    If Hendry, May, or MOH score one of their relatively simple chances at the weekend nobody is here claiming the system isn't working.

    Has May been fit to start?
    A lot of folk moaning about this, or McCann having to play a deeper role, completely ignoring the fact we've had so many injuries this season so far.

    Nobody to blame but ourselves, if you're not going to score then you won't win. You're lucky if we have a shot on target most weeks.

    Max Johnstone, the young keeper, wasn't a loan.
    Loan players were Ralston, Holt, Butcher and Izzy Jones.Also had Vihmann for a short spell.
    Season before had 5 loanees over the course of the season too.

    Pretty much this.
    A lot of people on Twitter who seem convinced we got a penalty awarded against us because none of our players put the ref in a headlock.

    You're telling a boy who played in defence at 17, in pub league against 18st forwards, about how physical a game can be?
    I never said Gordon should be bullied, I'm saying he should be smarter about it. Grabbing a hold of the boys shirt on the refs side, and putting your weight onto the defender, isn't smart defending, he's giving his opponent and the ref a virtual open goal for a penalty.

    Fwiw we have a young CB who signed from Celtic last season, Chris McQueen, who seems like he's been training with the first team.
    Seems to have broken into the Scotland U17 side by the time he joined.

    Yes, I've no idea why people keep claiming that.
    I played religiously through primary, part of the secondary team, was playing pub league at 17 and had trials for amateur sides.
    The draw of going out and getting hammered began to win late on so I stopped playing 11 a side and started playing 5 a side/futsal, then life started getting in the way.
    Gordon doesn't need to get involved the way he does.

    Don't think we should be too negative. In theory we should get stronger from here with players coming back from injury, new players coming in, and the manager learning.
    If we're losing narrowly, to dodgy goals, against Hibs and Aberdeen, and this is us at our weakest, then thats surely promising?

    I'll let you into a secret, and its that Stokes and Mays last Premiership seasons are almost identical in terms of attacking stats, apart from May being more accurate in terms of shots.
    Stokes - 7 goals from 70 shots - 1 assist
    May - 6 goals from 36 shots - 1 assist
    Difference is Mays figures were from last season, Stokes from 17/18. Since then Stokes has played for 4 different clubs and has scored 2 goals in the past 22 months.

    I'd rather have May than Stokes.
    Ones a hard working striker who almost reached double figures for us last season.
    The other barely lasts 6 months at a club, covers barely any yards and spends his time promoting the IRA.

    Stokes has scored more than 6 league goals two times in the past 6 years. The aforementioned 7 goal season at Hibs in 2017, and in the Iranian league.
    The last time he hit double figures in the league was 2012/13.
    You're on about folk judging May on past glories when you're doing even worse with Stokes.
