  1. Having watched Robinson's post match interview, I was really interested in his comments about Livingstone. He said the boy only gave him 60 mins and took cramp and needs to be fitter to play first team - I have a few issues with that in that he played 45 mins only on Monday and probably gave that his all and also if fitness is known to be an issue why haven't the physio and sports science team already been working with the boy on that? Thought it was wrong approach. He could have said the boy did well after being dropped in it and has room to improve, no more needed. Also interesting that he mentioned the clamour from fans to have Livingstone in the team - perhaps Robinson has been having a look on here?
  2. Heard a few names mentioned today. If true, we could be looking to bring in a centre half, a midfielder and a striker all currently playing with teams in the play-off positions in the championship (Scottish one!)
  3. I think people must have been watching a different game to me. McDonald was very poor and should have been the first one off.time and time again he was beaten to the ball or went to deck looking for a foul. He gave away possession all afternoon and spent most of the second half standing up front with his arms out. Dundee were not comfortable on the ball at the back, but the only person putting in the effort to press was Cadden, McDonald was just a lazy empty Jersey! Johnson was also poor and his laziness near the end where twice he tried to just punt the ball in to the box rather than run at the defender was shocking. Why do we have the boy Lucas on the bench if we won't give him a chance? We clearly miss Moult and we'll see how things look when he and McHugh are back.

    2016/17 Ins & Outs

    With the exception of Rangers, I'd be more than happy to see the young guy Campbell pitched in for the League Cup games and allow him to develop. I'm not saying he couldn't handle the Rangers game but with the hype that is bound to build it woudl be unfair to expect him to show what he can do in that game. Signings will come and I'm sure more guys will go. The Rangers game isn't the target in the bigger picture and I agree with McGhee on that. I'd happily let the Rangers group game go, so long as we progress and then get the chance to beat them in the same competition further down the line when we are up to speed - I'd also add that Rangers will be in the same boat, they are still making signings and haven't taken some of their so called 'key' players with them on the pre-season trip suggesting the team that lines up at Fir Park in mid-July will be some way from a team we may play in September.
  6. McManus for me, he was commanding and talked the two young guys either side through the game. Skippy took his chances well. Special mention to Las as I thought having him back in the middle made a difference from the weekend. He was snapping around and pressing all game. Gomis continues to puzzle me!
  7. Right now we are too old and too slow and nothing I can see to change that. Why take the top scorer off? And if you really need to why not put another striker on in his place. Starting to get really worried for this season...
  8. See Don Cowie has terminated his contract at Wigan - an option to bolster our midfield?
  9. Lee Miller in talks i'm hearing... another striker?

    Lee Erwin

    Can understand why we think another couple of seasons here would do him good. However if you look at it from Lee's point of view, he might think the opportunity may not come up again - he's had injuries before and might be worried that if something happened again the chance to move up a level woudl be gone. A gamble either way and you can't knock him. At least it looks like we get some money.
  11. Oldham in for Sutton... They will have seen some of our games given they were supposed to have wanted Vigurs in January. And on Vigurs, he's talking with Thistle and St Mirren.
  12. See that Thistle have signed Cerny on a 1 year deal, thought he could have done a job for us.
  13. Anybody got a phone number for Ibrox? Seem to have left my voice there! Proud to be there last night and felt really bad for those who had to miss out. What an atmosphere, but what a performance. As others have said for about an hour either side of halt time we bossed it big time. A few Gers fans at work had pointed out in advance that McCall pushed the full backs on and that they were worried about the space that woudl leave and boy did we take advantage. For all the concerns most of us had and for the stick just about every player has taken at some point this season... every single one of them stood up last night and fought hard for our wee team. Special mention to George Long, never thought he could perform like that and command his box so much. Massive thing for me was that we didn't let them push us off the ball like we have with other teams this season. The way Marvin brushed aside Foster was magic!
  14. I have a little hunch we might line up - Long Law Laing McManus Hammell Ramsden Grant Lasley Pearson Johnson McDonald
  15. So we've heard so far today that Rangers have approached Erwin plus one other out of contract. We have stories coming out that we tried to sign Vuckic in January.... can't wait to see what hits the headlines tonight and tomorrow!
  16. Not in the least surprised by this... in fact I would have been shocked if they hadn't tried the tactic.
  17. From reading what Tommy Wright had to say, i think St Johnstone benefited more from Faddy off the park than on it. I agree having him in some sort of coaching role would be great - does anyone know if he is doing his badges?
  18. Thanks to my boy - Ibrox tickets have been got. Club were good enough to move those waiting for hours for Ibrox tickets in to the Cooper suite and then sorted them from there no issue. When i picked him up, the queue was healthy and Flow expects to sell out today - Buzzin now!
  19. Anyone else think we are pricing 'young men' out of buying a ST. I've had the free kids tickets in the Cooper for as long as they've been around. Now that my boy is hitting 16, he (or more likely me) is expected to fork out £185 to keep his life long seat in the Cooper. What's suddenly changed now that he will be 16? Earning a fortune... Nope still at school! Doesn't work for me and could well price us out, especially if it's a lower league that's on offer. Nice to see the new regime is bringing fresh ideas to Scottish football.

    Is It Just Me?

    Fully agree with this, we cant play same shape and same team home and away and just expect same performance. we need to be much more tactically aware. For example going to Easter Road or Ibrox we should be packing the midfield to stop teams getting at our back 4.
  21. Agreed the longer it goes without Lee signing the more clubs are paying attention. Maybe he's holding out to see what league we are in but with that, if he delivers to keep us in the top flight that will only attract even more.
  22. I've heard Barra is also keen on the young guy Kidd from QoS
  23. I don't see Ramsden coming in a centre half as I don't think he has played there since Barra came in either for the first team or U20's. If Laing is out I'd expect it to be Kerr or O'Brien coming in.
  24. IF (and we all know it is a big if) we can win our next 2 home games then we woudl be heading to Paisley at worst 3 points behind County and 4 points behind Killie. 3 points against St Mirren and we could be heading in to the last game of the season 'in touch'. For me with County & Killie playing each other last day of season, all we can ask of the team is that we are in touch for the last day and then lets see what happens...
  25. Just gone through the pain of watching highlights and was just as bad as being there last night... Erwin gives ball away to start build up for both accies goals. For the second Ainsworth fails to get his lazy arse back leaving the runner free. Can't have a striker failing to take chances when one on one with the keeper.
