    He was probably off his game because his team mate in front of him was as good as sitting in the stand. I’ve got far less patience with Hylton’s “performance”.

    I would doubt he was praising them.

    He made it very plain in the post match interview he took responsibility for the signings, I though that in itself was quite telling. His comments ere obviously not aimed at those already at the club from last season.

    I think the worry this time is that Robinson is been very critical of many of the new signings, he’s never done that before.

    Na, he needs to go out, always has. He’s not at the stage of his development to be starting games at the top level. I think the only reason some people want him starting is because he’s come through the ranks, playing him risks him going backwards with his confidence taking a real knock.

    Well that was enjoyable. I night that would show how the season would pan out told us a hell of a lot. I think it’s all been said already but yep, a complete shambles of a performance. Hylton, Seedorf, Long, Cole really were awful, Gillespie suddenly seems a liability for some reason. Scott showed again why he should be nowhere near the first team at this point in his career, surely everyone can now see it. Ok Tait did not have his best game but take a look back at the highlights and see what support he had from Hylton, I had forgotten he was even on the park at one point, he was totally invisible, I would have taken him off after 20 minutes. Gillespie on the other side had Seedorf who was hardly any better. We really were second best against a very ordinary Hearts side. Robinson says he takes responsibility for the new signings which of course he has to do, they looked wonderful against the lower league teams but look completely out of their depth at this level ( Gillespie and Polworth excluded). I’m very much a glass half full supporter but came away from that pretty demoralised.

    Outside of Celtic and Rangers we have Hearts,Killy, St Johnstone, Hibs who all look to be going backwards, Aberdeen hardly spectacular, and maybe the dark horses in Ross County. Top four looks up for grabs to any half decent team showing a bit of consistency.

    I would never say easy, and it certainly won’t be easy this time. However I certainly don’t think we have anything to fear.

    Are they honestly any better than us ? Looking at highlights of their games this season they have been pretty awful.
  10. To be fair no club with an average attendance of 4000 should be getting near the old firm, if anyone does you have to question the club with 60,000 attendances. We will never have a squad of players that have the technical ability of of a club with players full of multi million pound players. Certainly not in the modern era.
  11. Really outside Celtic and Rangers there is nothing to be afraid of.
  12. No real shock, we all know the standard of Scottish football is very poor, probably around league one level down south outside of the top two. Celtic have the money to purchase players that are Championship/ Lower Premier league level.

    Gillespie has been fantastic, why on earth would we want to drop him after one indifferent display ?

    For me the first real test of where we stand. Celtic and Rangers top two, don’t think anyone else is going to be that amazing.

    Celtic Man of the Match

    Polworth for me, he looks to be improving game on game.

    Big step up, I think the fact not one of the better clubs in the top flight was interested in him tells it’s own story.
  17. Gallagher has made mistakes and will continue to make mistakes, and i’m pretty sure a few will make sure he knows it. Personally I think he’s an outstanding signing given our budget, for me the best of the summer signings by some way.
  18. I’ve given negative and positives, you have said nothing positive and completely ignored the fact we were the better team for most of the first half against the best team in the league. Sorry I don’t exactly need any tips from you when you have already written off players after two league games, just the same way you did with Gorrin to name just one player last season. Show a bit of patience and give the team time to gel, we will be fine, you don’t need to go into this panic mode every season.
  19. We were outclassed all over the park from 30 minutes onwards, not before that where our midfield was the better of the two. I honestly think your level of negativity means you are not actually able to see anything positive. We had a very good 30 minutes and you appear to have been in the men’s toilet the whole time. I’m at the point of wondering if you are even attending games ?
  20. First 30 minutes we were the better team then Celtic started getting more and more on top, the game was as good as over when the second went in. I thought we were far to open and really you can’t do that with the quality of players that Celtic have. Second half we were just totally outclassed. Midfield shows promise for me, Polworth was excellent first 30 minutes or so and Donnelly not far behind against a midfield that’s better than anyone else in the league. Our two flying wingers were never in the game and we still desperately need a quality centre forward. I think we will be just fine again this season and Fridays game will give a better indication of where we are, time to start making better judgements then after two games on a none football pitch and a team on a different level to us squad wise.
  21. We did not need to renew ours

    Take a look at home many teams “ pumped “ Livi”at home last season.

    Surely as good as a done deal, season long loan.

    Livingston vs Motherwell 03/08/2019

    It’s one league game on a dreadful pitch against a team with one of the best home records in the league last season, take a look at the teams they beat on it including us. Let’s actually see how things pan out over the next half dozen games before we write people off.

    Livingston Man of the Match

    Maybe they should go to more games and look at what’s been played on them, it’s not football. We might well get thrashed next Saturday but at least there will be some actual football on display.
