    He's one of the most gifted midfielders any Scottish Academy has produced in decades.

    Robinson... How Do We Think He's Doing ?

    It's a big problem this team faces if they aren't 100% "at it". We've committed to signing grafters over genuine ability and last season it worked, but this season, through various reasons, those grafters haven't been at 100% which gives us no leeway in our game plan to make up for the distinct lack of ability in our side. Robinson has been extremely fortunate to have young Turnbull come into the side and add some much needed ability, but he can't do it on his own. Whether the manager has lost the dressing room or the players have chucked it, but the desire and intensity shown last season just isn't there at all.

    Scottish Cup 4th Round Motherwell v Ross County Sat 19th January (H)

    It baffles me with every passing shitfest how Robinson has managed to ascend to achieve the UEFA Pro Licence and be an assessor fro the Irish FA. There is almost nothing on the park that suggests we are a top flight footballing team. If we aren't relegated this year, then we will most certainly be the following season. I've gotten bored of even bothering to start picking apart how shite a footballing team we are. That was a fucking holocaust of a performance against a really, really average side. In a season of demoralising mediocrity, especially at Fir Park, that disaster is right up there. The season's pretty much over unless we get even worse and get caught by 3 of the worst teams ever to blacken the Scottish top flight. Unbelievably grim stuff.

    2018’19 Game 14: Livingston (A) Saturday 1st December 2018

    Honking performance by all accounts. As an aside, that pitch should never see professional football played on it. Undoubtedly an advantage for Livi.

    Our chance .

    If we can get a bit of confidence back and start playing football, none of those games should have us quaking in our boots. Hearts are having an injury crisis, Aberdeen aren't great and neither are Rangers, we can always take something from Celtic at Fir Park, Livi are honking and we have to end our abysmal run in Perth sometime. When you take a step a step back, whilst still difficult, it's not the nightmarish run it looked to be a few weeks ago.

    2018’19 Game 10: St Mirren (A) Wednesday 31st October 2018

    MUST, MUST WIN! At all costs. I don't care how we do it as long as we do it. Worryingly though, I'm not particularly confident we can go there and get a win.

    Who’s next?

    Both currently employed. VDG at NAC Breda and Simo at Tromso.

    Who’s next?

    Without trying to compare too much or heaping additional pressure on the lad, he's very much in the Andy Robertson type mould. As fit as a fiddle, a great engine that lets him bomb forward as well as defend, good on the ball, excellent quality crosses and a decent eye for goal.

    Who’s next?

    I maybe wasn't quite as happy as others were when we resigned Aldred. He looked decent, but very limited playing alongside Kipre/Dunne/McHugh. This season there's been no Kipre and he's looked pretty horrendous in most matches. I'd be looking to bin either him or Hartley asap from the starting XI. Maguire, McHugh and Dunne would be my shout as we persist with 3 at the back. Livingstone into left wingback and Tait on the right.

    Reserves/Under 20's/Youths

    Genuinely; Turnbull, Livingstone and Maguire should be in our first team starting XI or thereabouts. The signings in the summer of Sammon, Donnelly, ATS and even Gorrin seem all the more mental when you have players in the youth ranks who are visibly and significantly better footballers. Brown, Watson and Mbulu look like very decent prospects for us. Scott is a significantly better forward than Sammon, with his touch being better than Bowman's. Hastie is going to be a terrific player for Motherwell. The most entertained I've been by football team at Fir Park this season. Football played the right way, the ball sprayed around by a very comfortable looking team of accomplished footballers. Final word on the ref today; He didn't half let some wild tackles go.

    2018’19 Game 9: St Johnstone (H) Saturday 20th October 2018

    I'd like to see something a bit different in terms of personnel and formation. The longer we shoe horn players into a system rather than finding a system to fit the players, the longer we'll be looking for performances and results. Just throwing it out there. Carson Tait Hartley Dunne Livingstone Campbell Rose Cadden Turnbull/Bigi Main Bad News/Johnson Obviously we'll line up 3-5-2 with numerous players out of position though.
