  1. Gallagher is our best defender and we need to get him back in the team as soon as it's possible no matter what if anything is going on with his contract,get him in the team and help keep us up and then both parties can move on at the end of the season,all that matters is were in the top division come the summer.we need him back and sharpish as the thought of going into a relegation scrap with magloire and lamie is truly frightening.

    Fair play to Jordan White. He has his limitations but as he showed at Inverness and now at County, he’ll get on the end of balls into the box and score a few. Unfortunately he joined Motherwell side that has no idea how to get the ball in the box. 

    We are right back in the mire. 

    I wasn't a fan of white but the way we used him wasnt good enough,he got 10-15 minutes here and there when we were chasing a game and even then we still didn't have the sense to get balls in the box to him.that result has well and truly put the cat among the pigeons.

  3. Trying to play out from the back isn't a bad idea but you need to have players that are comfortable on the ball and a midfield that are willing to go looking for it and we have neither in our team,there was one occasion in particular yesterday in the first half where we tried to pass it about the back and it turned into total panic stations,it was actually embarrassing to watch.ive no idea how or what we change,were shite at trying to pass the ball and the long ball stuff is just as bad,for me the only hope we have is for the teams below us to be just as bad as I don't see us doing enough on our own.the sooner this season is over and we can get our biggest rebuilding job underway the better.

    bottom line is we need to work a damn site harder irrespective of formation or selection.

    from who we have available 


                        Magloiore     Lamie     McGinley

    Odonnell.        Crawford     Maguire           Car roll 


                                            Long.          Cole 

    I would drop long and bring in another midfielder(if we have anybody fit that is)so we aren't outnumbered in the middle of the park but other than that i agree with the team and formation,that's as good as we're going to get right now, plus it gets away from the disaster that is the 433.

  5. The 4-3-3 needs to ditched and never be seen for the remainder of this season,if we go to paisley and start with it again then I'll have doubts that alexander is the man for us,granted we are ravaged with injuries but it simply wouldn't work even with a full strength side,we can't even try it involving 2 wingers as what we have there aren't good enough.alexander and his coaching team simply have to come up with something,them watching that today has to be the final straw.we really do find ourselves in a mess,a big squad of players and there isn't a formation that really stands out that we would be comfortable playing in.we may scrape by with the odd point here and there and hope the teams below us keep going the way they are but if things really go against us in the next couple of games we are up shit creek,there is zero fight and passion among this current lot,two things that can't be taught.

    A model of how to do what, avoid relegation and settle for a bottom 6 finish, they have been as shit as us in recent weeks , a couple of results makes a big difference. 

    Compare like for like ie 1st choice players for both teams, not the thrown together shambles we had today,  do they have better players , maybe 1 or 2, in certain positions but overall I would back us to beat them as we have done consistently in recent seasons.

    We are a fan owned debt free  top flight club for 30 odd years, multiple European qualifications,  do StJ regularly challenge for a top 6 finish or a European spot, no. So are they miles better than us playing wise..no, how the club is run...no, they are a mid table club just like us.

    Have to agree,trying to use st johnstone as some kind of example of how a club should be run is nonsense,aye we're having a shit season but even then I wouldn't swap anything they supposedly have over us.

    Case and point. Look at that at Johnstone side. They are a similar size of club/ slightly smaller, with a relatively similar playing budget. They have a solid spine, experienced pros mixed with good young players. Miles ahead of us 

    It's completely self inflicted where we find ourselves,there wasn't a big rebuilding job needing done for once over the summer,we needed maybe 4 players of a standard that could have pushed us on and that's before we even sold turnbull,the club could have been in a really good place but yet we made a total cunt of it by bringing in guys that aren't good enough and then to make it worse we go and bring more players in during january that aren't any better than the shite signed in the summer,you really couldn't make it.two disastrous transfer windows and a change in manager,if we can manage to stay up this season we will have done really well.

    How many players in the squad actually give a fuck at this point. 

    Kelly on loan. SOD stinking attitude all season. Gallagher has apparently talked his way out of the club. Allan Campbell's value drops every time he steps on the park so he's better off injured. Polworth doesn't care. Crawford on loan. Long worst attitude ever. Cole not exactly a man you want in the trenches. Hastie on loan. Seedorf heading out the door. 

    Watt was the bright spark but today he looks like he has chucked it. 


    Spot on and add in the raft of signings that aren't anywhere near good enough and it's a disaster waiting to happen,terrifying sums it up.

    That guy Maglorie wouldn’t get a game in the juniors ……… They would hunt him 

    Whoever thought it was a good idea to bring magloire here needs to be shown the door,he looks like a guy that's a million miles away from being ready for first team football(if at all) so what exactly was the purpose in bringing him here,all it does is just highlight our scattergun approach to the transfer window and take anybody available out of sheer desperation.

    Some of the worst defending you'll ever see.

    Again the transfer business in January is killing us. 

    Just when you thought our summer transfer business couldn't be topped,january was even worse,it's sickening when you see just how bad some of our players really are and there taking a wage out the club every week,while as fans we are putting our hard earned money in one way or another,totally scunnered with this season.

    We are fucking garbage, no doubt about it. I don't think we'll get relegated (or finish anywhere near it), but this is god awful.


    We have three shitebags in midfield who just don't want the ball in tight spaces. We have shoehorned two centre forwards into attacking midfielders on each side and we wonder why we don't create many chances. We have four defenders who launch the ball forward to Devante Cole's head with nobody within 20 yards of him.


    We are fucking shite.

    Spot on,we are absolutely clueless,it's like watching a bunch of guys that have never played football before,it's embarrassing how bad we really are.

    every game we play looks like we have less players than the other team - we don't win enough 2nd balls and midfield is non existent 

    Totally agree,we look outnumbered cause our midfield is over run every single game,the 3 man midfield hasn't work all season but yet here we are playing it again,farcical it really is.

  13. At first glance the timing of this does seem suspicious but then again it might just be a coincidence,not much has gone our way this season,from poor signings,changing manager,injuries and some dubious refereeing decisions so gallagher being injured would just add to that.as soon as the talk of a contract extension came up speculation was always going to happen,I'm certain he won't be with us next season,the main thing is we can get him back in the team and we stay up this season.
