  1. Nolan done a great job to be fair. The East Stand looks splendid these days!
  2. Tough one. Hopefully she can hold off until we’ve got a horrendous injury list / suspensions. On the subject of suspensions, is KVV not due a match ban due to his accumulation of yella cards?
  3. I liked what I seen of O’Connor during the league cup games, but it’s clear that Solholm & Ojala are the first choice centre halves so will be hard to break through. Bevis & Lamie have been solid back ups too. Lamie has had some very good performances this year. Seems a different player to the bombscare we had last season. Midfielde wise, I think (and hope) we will see the end of Crawford’s Motherwell stint. You have forgotten to mention Cornelius whom I think is injured at the moment? I suspect we may try to get shot of Donnelly in January too. Doesn’t seem to have gotten over his injury from last season.
  4. Stats mean sweet FA when you get the 3 points. Enjoy the win and enjoy yer morning.
  5. Maurice Ross back in the coaching game after being appointed manager of Cowdenbeath. God help them.
  6. Has Roberts done enough to even merit us talking about taking him permanently? I was happy to see him back on loan to see what more he had to offer but I think a few have jumped the gun a bit with him after his short spell last year.
  7. Hense why I said bar his performance yesterday. I don’t recall a time he has let us down this season.
  8. He got ripped apart against Celtic as those in front of him showed no support whatsoever. I think if we stick with the 4-3-3 and Carroll takes McGinley’s place then the formers poor defending will be worse for us and see us exposed even more down that side. For me Carroll should only come in we move to a 3-5-2. Bar his display yesterday I think McGinley has done a reasonable job in the back 4 but he’s an easy target for criticism.
  9. I think 352 is the only way to go. Lamie or Donnelly weren’t on the bench yesterday so can’t see them being in the starting 11. If it’s 3-5-2 the change will probably be Solholm for Woolery and potentially O’Hara for Grimshaw. I would be excited to see Watt & Van Veen as a front two instead of one of them pushed wide as part of a three although KVV has done absolutely nothing of late so if he does go for the two up top Alexander could opt for Woolery’s pace along with Watt. Woolery does seem to be his first pick every week.
  10. I’ve always thought McGinlay gets a bad time of it from our fans unfairly. Not just on here, but on social media and in the stands too. Criticism was justified today though as he was honking. The full back on the other side though? Deserves any criticism he gets. Not fit to wear the shirt. Not going to repeat what many others have said about the midfield but I feel our midfield has got much worse without O’Hara being in it the past couple of games. Still not overly concerned though, if we pick up the three points on Wednesday night we will be in the top 6 after the first round of fixtures. I think we would all be delighted with that at the end of the season considering how dismal it was last year.
  11. How many points were you expecting against unbeaten Hearts at Tynecastle & at home to one half of the Old Firm?!
  12. Dundee United going about their business very quietly. I’ll be delighted with a point. As for the team, who knows? Do we move Grimshaw to right back and bring in Donnelly? Not sure if I’m comfortable with Mugabi at right back although he was a solid 6/10 when he was out there. O’Donnell’s performances haven’t been good enough but I think we sometimes forget he barely had a pre season with his Scotland duty plus injury afterwards.
  13. Result was deserved after two moments of madness from Kelly. I wasn’t sold that it was a penalty at the time, the linesman surely had the clearest view of it but did the referee even go over to consult him? I’ve not seen it back yet but many have said it was a penalty so no complaints. 2nd pen I can’t comment on as it was obviously to far away to make judgment on it. Plenty of positives to take though. I thought Woolery was good, albeit he should have buried his chance straight after the penalty save which would have seen us back in the mix. He just doesn’t seem to be able to strike a ball properly. Mugabi was solid at the back too. On a different day we could have came home with a point. Criticism for me though has to goto our international experienced esteemed captain. Absolutely rotten. McGinley on the opposite flank wasn’t much better, fairly solid defensively but going forward offered very little. Swapping him for Carroll would have been my first change early in the second half when we had to go for it. Losing at Tynecastle in the manner we did yesterday was nothing to be ashamed about. Onto the next one.
  14. That’s nonsense. If Van Veen or Ojala wanted to tweet about teams from their homeland then fair enough. The team that employs them are not in direct competition with these sides. Domestically though, I think it should be a case of doing your job and keeping your mouth shut. Especially on a platform that is so public. We all know Tony Watt supports Celtic but does he bang on about it? Hardly. Dom Thomas was also guilty of it, which caused him not to be endeared by many.
