  1. Don’t agree. McNulty had a purple patch 4 years ago and a brief flourish with Hibs and hasn’t exactly played / scored much since. Wasn’t impressed with him at DU and claimed he was being played out of position (not just straight down the middle). Hardly inspiring given our penchant for how front three are expected to play and contribute.
  2. Do squad numbers give any indication of expected starting places anymore? Just wondering if missing 1 and 9 have been offered to existing players or left for new signings.

    Very sad news. RIP Andy and best to his family and friends.
  4. At 6'7'' we could put him on the left wing and he might actually get some of Dec's "passes".
  5. Peter Hartley (one of) first to congratulate Bevis on twitter!
  6. Agree. Lamie is not a full back and just as poor on left of three at back.
  7. Obviously Carson got us through with the save in normal time as well as penalties but why was he time wasting earlier in second half. We should have been playing a pressing game as we did with success in the first. Surely that and the stupid high balls to no one can’t have been the players tactics?
  8. When do we play Accies in the relegation 6 pointer?
  9. Yes I think they are Stream improves if restricting all options. Shouldn’t have to do this with modern devices and high speed internet.
  10. This is utterly pathetic. BBC commentators are obviously getting a stream. We have stuttering low quality picture with sound well behind.
  11. Definitely looks like Rangers are ahead in match preparation but also have a number of players that could easily be playing at mid to lower English Championship level so they should be beating us.
  12. A big part of our success last season was the way the midfield would often interchange position. I think O’hara fits this approach perfectly, capable of defensive cover and contributing to attack. Having similar players with some different qualities/strengths gives us flexibility and cover for suspension, injury, loss of form, and in-game adjustments.

    No pleasing some halfwits.
  14. Hastie’s move to Rangers is an example of how bad/desperate a manager Gerrard is rather than Robinson.
  15. 4th official had a word with him about it at the tunnel.
  16. Strange to say but losing the early goal seemed to inject a resolve in us and County did not kick on. Long was excellent and just a pity he didn’t get a goal for himself. Donnelly has been good all season but O’hara has a similar defensive input and bit more attacking threat.
  17. Disgraceful attempts at penalties from professional footballers. Watt and Hylton should be fined. Donnelly’s was poor but would at least have gone in had keeper dived other way.
  18. Ohara. Donnelly played well second half but was poor in first (along with most of defensive side) -penalty was pathetic.
  19. Good fee but as others have said it’s not all about the balance sheet. My 13 yo is devastated.
  20. Scott definitely. The look on Whittaker’s face as JS passed him in second half was priceless

    Vs Hibs

    Attacking line up. Could cause them problems with Long and Scott swapping around
