  1. Whilst I understand your point there is a reason our most successful manager ever and now our new gaffer have both had him work his way into their plans when it looked initially he wasn’t going to get much game time. If we have an alternative option, in our price budget that will bag 12+ goals and match what Kane brings to the team, then I’d be happy to see the club wish him all the best and move on. I think that seems very unlikely.
  2. I think we need to use the squad for this one to match the obvious energy Hamilton will put into the game. I’d go with the same back line, but change to the two upfront and give a couple bodies a rest. Once again Kane ran himself into the ground- I’d give him a wee rest bring in both Melamed and May for him and Conway. Liam had a cracking game on Sunday and Id be tempted to keep him in there- but I’d probably give Bryson the nod for this one. Would also like to see Gilmour given a little bit of game time in the second half if possible.
  3. Good on him- he did a great job for us and I’d say he moved on at the right time for both him and the club. He clearly wanted a change and isn’t probably quite surprised a “bigger club” hasn’t come calling. Here’s hoping he does a good job for Kilmarnock and comes one place below us in the league.
  4. The club’s prudence could pay off very well here. It can see us through this nightmare situation, whilst the loan is used on non footballing matters to make long-term profit. Property/land could be a very good option- as could expanding into business services that are not effected by lockdown restrictions.
  5. I actually think with the right players the formation could work- the issue is we currently don’t have the players to match the system. My general issues with the formation just now are that our wing-backs and the two players wider than the striker rarely get into “dangerous” positions. I rated McNamara but thought he often didn’t add much attacking threat from wide. The formation looks a lot better when someone like Rooney commits to get down the line and even trying to make inroads into the box (like he did at Hampden). Teams seem fine with allowing us to play the ball into the deeper wider positions knowing it’s rare Conway or co will get in a position to play a dangerous cross and even if he did your looking at a loan striker in the box with limited aerial presence. Personally for me I’d prefer to see us go with two upfront and Spoony with a bit of a free role behind depending when at home. Spoony grafts hard and I’d trust him to slot back into a deeper position to cover if one of the wing-backs is caught out further forward and someone needs to come across to cover. Would also allow Kane an opportunity to link up with someone a bit closer rather than just being a “first line of defence”.
  6. Found my day was much less spoiled by accepting from half time we would lose to a late goal from their first chance. The lads put a shift in- just the usual outcome. UNfortunately like many, for whatever reason, I’m finding Saints and their results aren’t putting me up or down as much. Lockdown apathy maybe!
  7. Yet he decided to use the limited budget we did have on two players coming to the end of their careers.
  8. Free Saturday afternoon, but even then didn’t bother to purchase this one. He’s not the man for the job in my eyes and I’m glad I didn’t waste any more of my money on what sounds like another dire performance.
  9. We’ve hired the wrong man for the job I’m afraid
  10. Same story as Hibs and Aberdeen games. Unfortunately Davidson isn’t finding a formation that creates chance- if anything I think some of his choices nullify our attacking ability. Substitutions didn’t work at all and ultimately Motherwell pressed us very well, limiting us in the areas that mattered.
  11. That wasn’t predictable at all!? Dominated second half whilst creating practically nothing. That’s two very poor teams have come and taken six points from us. Time for Callum to show who’s boss in the dressing room and fine Craig for the lack of discipline at the end...... when we have a severe lack of midfield options the last you need is for an experienced player to act that way.
  12. I really don’t think it matters who plays and in what formation- unfortunately I only see an easy win for Hibs. Far too many players that can hurt us and we look devoid of ideas that could do likewise them.
  13. That’s was worrying. First half I thought we looked ok and dominated without creating anything of note- I thought as the game went on that we would start to create things. How wrong I was. Aberdeen were dire and completely rusty, yet they leave with three gifted points. Tanser once again done for a goal. No creativity at all and our subs added nothing to the game. We are desperately needing additions. A tad worried after that.
  14. Mikey was garbage the whole time he was on and you could see he was heading for a sending off. Just poor discipline. I thought the back 3 once again looked very good at what they are there to do- defend. I’d personally prefer the 3-5-2 to the 3-4-3 that we played yesterday (or 3-4-2 in the end) but it’ll be interesting how the players adapt.
