    2018/19 Game 30: Hibs (A) March 16th 3pm kick off

    We never really got going, doubling up on the wingers killed our play. I said it last and will say it again, Main isn’t good enough for the level IMO. We badly need to review our striking options. It remains unseen if Hastie will be our player next season and whilst I don’t want to be too overly critical of the guy, the same happened against accies to a large extent as today in that he has a wee habit of drifting out of games if he isn’t getting much joy. Overall, we looked leggy. I’d imagine top 6 will be too much, so I’d personally be looking to shape a side that will take us into next season. Bringing in scott etc. and working on some different shapes.

    2018/19 Game 29: Hamilton (H) March 9th 3pm kick-off

    Probably for the better. You can’t question is work rate but he’s not quite got the quality in front of goal to be an spfl striker imho

    If this game has proved anything, it’s that we’re a good striker away from being quite a decent top six side

    Given that he’s played only 10 or so games for us, I’m quite surprised that so many clubs are interested. With the best will in the world to Jake, there have been a lot of boys who have come into the game, made a great impact and faded through a full season. Of course, I hope I’m totally wrong and he is the real deal!
  5. There was fuck all fair play about it. Christie had already been attended to seconds earlier by the physio. Both Christie and physio saw fit to continue and then stopped play conveniently moments later, for a Second time. For a side that has cheated its way to two penalties within two seasons (cup final and fir Park) the hypocrisy of unsportsmanlike behaviour is startling. Robinson should’ve backed Scott in the interview or at least turned the tables and brought up previous actions. I have to agree with the above that instead of praising edouard, he should’ve been asking why the hell he was still on the park. We equipped ourselves well over the piece but I, like every other well fan over the years, am tired of us bowing to pressure from both halves of the ugly divide and would really appreciate if someone would raise their head above it from time to time and challenge the status quo Rant over
  6. 4-1 flattered them big style. We didn’t actually play that poorly. Switched off at the back a couple of times and got punished however the performance wasn’t too dispiriting.
  7. Sorry, but McHugh is not a premier league level player. No idea what his best position is and he’s completely immobile.

    Fair play to the club. On paper, it seems a very good signing and brining in a bit of much needed quality. I hope we are able to bring in a few players around McCormack to move us forward. Another striker, attacking midfielder and a winger with quality with a few moving out should set us up well; it seems Dunne and McHugh will be back come the Scottish cup). I do believe that we as a club should always be looking at a policy of a core of “quality” supported by youth (either ours or brought in) should be the model we are working too and one which is sustainable for the ownership model, rather than the mass of lower league England bodies that we’ve been brining in recently.

    I’d imagine Newell, Sammon, Main and maybe Bigi.

    I don’t agree. I don’t think anything can compare with playing top league competitive football. I agree Scottish football is, mostly, dross however it provides a skill set that will be never be learned playing academy football.

    Going to be a busy month (potentially under the guidance of a new manager if today is as much of a shambles as the previous performances). We desperately need an attacking midfielder and two strikers of quality. If we had the budget for 4 players, I’d really like to see a proper defensive midelfider brought into the club to screen the defence. And finally, it goes without saying, someone to play on the left! With Rose and Bowman gone, I’m assuming Sammons loan being cut short, Itll be interesting to see who leaves. Turnbull will be a loss however I think a “smart” agent would get the best deal possible at Motherwell, have him play a full season next year and look to move him on after, with an impressive full campaign under his belt - but it won’t happen. I’m assuming the chocolate teapot forward will be away to and I wouldn’t be surprised to see Main and/or Bigi leave. We really need quality over quantity and head into the second half of the season with: ——————- Gillespie ——Aldred———-Hartley——- Dunne Tait——————McHugh—TBC————-TBC —————————TBC —————-TBC—————TBC Subs: Fergusson Mcguire Grimshaw Livingston Campbell Gorrin Johnson Hastie Scott This does neglect Caden and Tanner whom I’ve heard are not returning until April? Deary me, there’s a lot of work to do!
  12. A few things. 1. Tactics against a team whom were obviously going to sit in, we’re woeful. No width or people breaking lines to create space - how could we have failed to realize that? 2. Campbell is worse than a man short in the middle of the park at the moment and needs a rest. 3. Less than 4 points from the next two games and we seriously need to consider a managerial change in and a playing squad overhaul In January. 4. Please employ a decent commentator for the club services. People are paying to listen to that dross/nonsensical ranting. There is no description of any play whatsoever. and I forgot to add. Bigirimana should be omitted from squads until we can offload him in Jan. The absolutely pathetic attempt at winning the ball before the goal yesterday was unacceptable from a professional player.
  13. Good result, no doubt! It's glaringly obvious that we are still missing quality middle to front to convert chances and put games to bed. I understand that Robinson will be looking to off-load bodies and bring some in, in January however it really is going to be crucial. Results panning out with the ugly sisters winning tomorrow, we're in a limbo state in the league. 5 points ahead of the team in-front and the same as accies behind us. We're obviously capable of stepping up when called upon (as today shows) but in order to close the gap on the group above, we really need a quality 4 players or so come January who bring a composure and quality level that we don't have at the moment. Cadden coming back into the fold in Jan will be a big boost to get some energy middle to front back however Campbell badly needs a rest. Interesting times ahead however a 9 point cushion on the bottom two is a bonus!
  14. is the game on Motherwell Tv?
  15. I fully agree on Grimshaw. I actually said on another thread that I would be looking to offload him in January however with Cadden injured, Rose away, Frear utterly inept and ATS being worse than a man short, there aren’t many alternatives
