  1. Much, much better. If we continue to put that in each week, with a few faces returning from injury, we'll be safe. Thought Campbell playing further up the park was the change that linked the front three to the rest of the team. Some nice passing around the box which was unheard of for months. Also, credit to the defence in limiting St Mirren to next to nothing.
  2. Hughes - that's not what you originally said. Robinson - that's not what you originally said. Gallagher - that's not what you originally said. Backtracking to try sound reasonable after initially talking shite.
  3. Take your word for it - like your claim the contract clause removal was announced at the AGM, when it wasn't? Or that last Christmas, Robinson was definitely fucked because of CCTV footage, when he wasn't? Or that John Hughes will never work in Scottish football again, because of appalling accusations I won't even repeat here, when he's now at Ross County? I know it's all a laugh, but some of the shite you spout on here is quite damaging.
  4. It was reported to be a grade 1 strain, which is usually a weeks rather than months. Alexander had hoped he'd be back training on Monday this week - no idea if thats happened though.
  5. No, but the site is used to communicate with the fans. There's a section with updates on every players injury and it was updated on Saturday. It's not mock outrage to wonder why two of a new managers new signings - brought to bolster the squad in a relegation fight - are nowhere near the squad when they aren't injured (according to the official site) and when there is a massive injury list in the very positions they play. Alexander hasn't mentioned Nolan or Foley in any press conference. We opted to have two empty seats on the bench on Saturday so it's not a huge leap to assume they are unfit or have been simply awful signings who are worse than a man down. That's a fairly logical conclusion and given how shite we've been, it's worthy of discussion. Fans shouldn't rely on an unofficial injury list to put these theories to bed.
  6. Any idea why they haven't been listed as injured on the official site? Not really helping matters when fans are left wondering for weeks why three new signings are nowhere near the squad.
  7. An extension which the Record 'revealed' in January then failed to mention in the follow up Gallagher story. Given that was the only source, I'm thinking it might be shite. Not what I was saying the other day mind you.
  8. Yep. I don't think our passing decision making is as bad as those few posts made out - part of the problem seems to be that the players receiving the ball are frequently out-fought.
  9. Aye true. I'm working on the naïve assumption we'll start getting some key players back soon. If that's not the case then we're heading doon.
  10. That's easy. Killie. 8 defeats on the bounce. Scored 2, conceded 16. They're shiter than us.
  11. Alexander quoted as saying hopefully returning to training tomorrow. Was it? None of the reports I've read say that. Not saying the contract being changed isn't true, just that it hasn't been made public.
  12. Agreed - I just can't see one player having that sort of power. In recent years we've proved we aren't mugs when it comes to other clubs trying to flex their muscles - even if it's to a players detriment (Carson, nearing the end of his career, denied a bumper pay check at Celtic), so I'd be astonished if the club let the club Captain feign injury to re-negotiate a contract or avoid an automatic extension. The guy is also risking his place at the Euros. That said, as much as I've tried to be rational about this, I can't get my head around the Daily Record "source" saying on the 4th of January that he's trying to force a move and that his contact will be extended after 25 games, you've got Alexander being quoted as saying in January "I’ve read about Declan’s situation and we’ll assess it", then after game 24 he gets injured. Maybe the source was talking shite - the extension doesn't exist - and it's sheer coincidence. The club have no duty to comment on individual employment contracts so I'm not sure what I'd expect them to say here, but the silence is leaving the fans to come up with their own theories.
  13. Oh of course, not having a go - apologies if that's how it came across. I know its just a laugh. I was trying to stress that I thought he was actually very good. Nothing to do with the thread title.
  14. Yep, jus turned 17 in December as well. He's definitely worthy of more than 'least worst'. I thought he was very good, got stuck in where others were backing off and is a really sharp passer. Aye, he gave it away a few times but that tended to be when he was trying some more incisive forward passes. Looking forward to seeing more of him.
  15. Today just deepens the mystery of Folay and Nolan. They're not injured, so even with a decimated squad they're both either so unfit or so pish that Alexander would rather have two empty seats on the bench than have them to call on. Bizarre.
  16. 3 down but at least they've given Jock and Lewis a walkie talkie to do the commentary through.
  17. Yeah, on streams 1 and 2 - stream 3 doesn't have it. Sound has an awful hiss too.
  18. Looking forward to seeing Johnstone play. He showed a great bit of skill last week to pluck Kelly's 400ft punt up the park straight out the sky.
  19. That's brutal. You could make an okay first team out of that, arguably 6/7 first choices in their respective positions.
  20. Bevis. Lovely big chap.
  21. Gallagher's scan came back showing a grade one muscle injury and the papers invent things all the time - they probably read it on here after someone who is pals with Gallagher's neighbours old window cleaner mentioned it to a dog. What you and a few others are speculating is the biggest fuck you this club will have probably ever had from a player. The club captain feigning injury during a relegation fight and jeopardising his place the Euros so he can leave on a free. I get why a few folk are asking the question - and to be honest, after the abuse the guy got after the Hapoel game I wouldn't blame him if his affinity to the club was damaged - but it all just seems a bit far fetched.
  22. Fair play to big Dec - he deserves his move just for the boldness of faking an actual scan.

    I think Carroll and Kelly have probably had a bigger influence in the overall improvement across the back. Good players improve those around them.
  24. Damn. I was growing quite fond of my fortnightly routine of a pie, bovril and 5:30pm treatment at Wishaw General for third degree burns.
