    2019-20 Rebuild

    Calm down. Frear wasn't good enough after two and a half seasons. These guys have had three matches.

    I thought Tait was poor for long spells in the second half of last season - and that was when the team was doing well. He's a guy that gets a pass from the support for some reason. Maybe he's got far too comfortable playing every week.

    As I said if Hylton, Seedorf etc are out of their depth you can play whoever you like in a 4-3-3 and they will be standing up on their own all match. If you want to help Scott, or whoever is up front, you put another striker up front and change the formation, not change the striker and keep the guys that can't hack it on the wings.

    Robinson's problem is that he has one tactical formula and doesn't change it. First of all it makes it very easy to counter once other teams are on to it. Secondly when he needs to change it and the chips are down, he doesn't take on the responsibility of a 'good' manager, ie, put himself on the line. He's been pretty harsh in this public statement today on the players but this stood out a mile "Players have a habit of making you look stupid, but that's the level of player we're able to recruit, and we have to educate them. That has to happen sooner rather than later or they won't play in the team." Sooner or later? What about the next match? We need to find something that works at this level and you don't do that without making changes when it doesn't work. If Robinson can't see that Dunne is useless in a 4-3-3, that Donnelly can't do what Gorrin did, that the absence of Turnbull makes the current formation debatable, that you need quality wingers to play this way you'd have to worry big time. And so we go back to the first sentence of this post. Robinson lets himself down with his lack of adaptability, he needs to have more than one tactical idea and he needs to be able to change it when it doesn't work.

    Scott doesn't need to go out on loan, he needs the players around him to show up.

    We can buy whoever you like but they are doing nothing with the wide players and midfield performing as they are. Playing a 4-3-3 with a striker that is completely isolated is the problem.

    2019-20 League Cup

    Created our only chance of the first half and gets pulled. When guys that did fuck all stay on the pitch. By all means bring on Long but change the formation to 4-4-2. Match could best be summarized as guff beats shite. Hearts are at best bang average and they have come here and put us out the cup, and even though we were terrible they only managed that due to a crazy error from our goalkeeper. A lot like last season when they beat us at Fir Park due to a McHugh error. Where do you start? Trying to play the ball out through Dunne is madness. Not only is he slow as fuck moving the ball, he can't pass and has no vision whatsoever. The midfield isn't fit for purpose. Polworth has a touch but he just doesn't impose himself on the game and Donnelly isn't technically proficient enough to replace Gorrin. The wide players are a big worry because against the three top level teams we've played they have done absolutely fuck all. Hylton looked out his depth tonight. And although Seedorf was a little better he was still fucking miles out. Feel really sorry for Scott who was completely isolated with no one to play off. Play like that against Accies and we'll get nothing again. But, hey, at least we'll have a plastic pitch to blame everything on. I hope to god it doesn't take Robinson 6 months again to realise a rethink is needed.

    Hearts are absolutely fucking atrocious. This is a game we should be winning with no excuses. Saw Naismith went off injured with a hamstring pull last weekend, I assume he won't play in this match. Him and Halkett are the only players in the Hearts team I'd worry about.

    Gillespie was great last season and deservedly locked down the number 1 place. Don't think he's start this season in great form but at the same time he's not throwing goals in. Think some of the criticism around the Griffiths goal was harsh. For me you don't drop an established goalkeeper for a few poor kick outs in one match, especially when he's kept us in the game previous at Livingston.

    Scott is a player. If we aren't going to bring in an established goal scorer we should give Scott a run and let him develop.

    Celtic Man of the Match

    Gallagher and Campbell have been the stand outs all season so far and yesterday was no different. Going for Campbell on this occasion.
  12. After the match I have to scoot off into town on a train full of Celtic supporters to meet the Celtic supporting burd for dinner. I need a result today. Someone needs to tell these players failure is not an option today!

    Ticket prices for Motherwell fans at Hamilton Accies

    We target fans that come in large numbers with additional costs. Standard when running a football club. If you go to away games £25 will not be the most you pay for a ticket.

    Livingston vs Motherwell 03/08/2019

    Livingston had Pittman, Jacobs, Bartley in the midfield. Maybe the reason they won the battle is because it's actually qualitatively better than ours.

    Livingston vs Motherwell 03/08/2019

    Let me put it this way, do you think our players touch, passing, decision making, cohesion as a team, tactical set up and performance of the opposition in countering it was a bigger influence than the pitch? I say it was. The pitch no doubt had an influence but it was maybe 10 - 15% not 60 or 70%. It's a bad pitch, we all know that, but that shouldn't ever be a get of jail card for a pretty poor performance. Was it the pitches fault that we hardly won a header in the first hald? Or that Dunne was repeatedly hitting the same ball to no effect every time? Or getting outpaced down the flank. Was it the pitches fault that our centre forward had to come deep to get on the ball? Let's just call a spade a spade. It was a poor performance, end of story.

    Livingston vs Motherwell 03/08/2019

    I never said the pitch isn't a joke. What I said is you have to play the conditions. We didn't. And let's be honest, does anyone think it would have made a huge difference today? Livingston countered our set up very well and virtually the entire team was off the boil. Blaming the pitch is a cheap and easy get out for a poor performance from the players and the manager.

    Livingston Man of the Match

    Has to be Gillespie but even he made quite a few mistakes today. Don't often see him completely missing crosses for instance.

    Livingston vs Motherwell 03/08/2019

    The match today was better than against Dumbarton which is a real grass pitch. Simple fact is you have to play the conditions. Its not down to the opposition to make it easier for us. Last 15 - 20 minutes of the first half Livingston played the surface fine and were giving us the run-a-round. We just didn't play well today and blaming the pitch is a deflection tactic. Livingston deserve some credit for executing their game plan and pretty much nullifying us for most of the match.

    Improved to mediocre in the 2nd half. Poor but an away point is reasonable. If you forget about the performance.

    Livingston vs Motherwell 03/08/2019

    2nd best by a distance. Getting completely bossed in midfield, can't win a header, getting done down the sides. Last 15 minutes of that half was a proper pumping. It's still 0-0 though, we need to make that work for us cos it shouldn't be.

    One of the keys will be getting a level of consistency out of the wide players. Hylton has shown that, the other guys have shown flashes of ability but perhaps lacked that level of consistency over the four matches. Felt that we weren't at maximum intensity in the last two games, when the season starts proper I think there will be more edge and a faster tempo. I like Scott, I think he's the real deal but due to the formation we are playing we really need the wider players to put a shift in otherwise he's isolated.

    2019-20 League Cup

    Seedorf took a hissy fit about 20 minutes into the game and then just didn't ever seem focused. Caught on his heels, being a bit lazy, not getting into the right positions, trying to showboat instead of doing the basics. Perhaps he needs a wee bit maturity and game experience. He's got pace and ability, he needs to supplement that with a better attitude than he showed today.

    Annan Athletic Man of the Match

    Got to go for Donnelly.
  24. Ya Bezzer!

    2019-20 League Cup

    Easy win at half pace. Best player in the first half - Polworth - was taken off at half time and that took a wee bit away from us until Hyltton and Scott came on as subs and pepped it up again. Sloth came on and looked decent. Fair play to Donnelly for the goals but most likely the goal run ends here and we'll need to concentrate on his ability in his actual role. Was disappointed in Ilic and Seedorf today and we definitely missed Gallagher and Campbell today despite the easy win. And I'll say it again - James Scott should be starting matches as our first choice striker.

    Dumbarton Man of the Match

    Went for Gallagher. Made it look easy and never put a foot wrong. Contrast with Hartley who put himself in trouble a few times and who's passing was a little wayward. Thought Maguire did well also but in terms of consistency over the three matches Campbell and Gallagher have been our best players so I'm giving it to big Declan.
